    Brady threw it away three times to waste time. He was in the pocket. The passes were to nowhere near a wide receiver. They were not spikes to kill the clock. That's intentional grounding. Did they get rid of the grounding penalty altogether and I just don't know about it?

    You're only allowed to do what he did out of the pocket.

    You have to be under pressure and it was in the vicinity of a WR. Smart play by Brady

    It’s Brady. His team gets to hold and push off a d if you hit him too hard, they change rules.

    He wasn't considered to be under pressure, which is a criteria when the QB is in the pocket. And the ball traveled well past the los. It doesn't need to be in catching range of a WR if he's not under pressure.

    the biggest BS of the night was the no call on the most obvious push off in the history of final drives.

    One of those throws was NOT near a receiver, and Chris Collinsworth almost mentioned that, but caught himself right before he said it was intentional grounding. And this was the play before the refs changed the rules of the game to fit some wrestling cage match where elbows to the throat are allowed. After those plays, the refs pretended that it was a football game again.

    If Brady is so good, why does he need those BS calls to win?

    There was a fan in the stands with a Gronk jersey on.

    it wasn't grounding and its no different than what you see every week in the redzone when qb's just air mail balls out of the end zone to live for another play...in and out of the pocket.

    There was a wr in the area and he was not under pressure.

    Its not intentional grounding. Intentional grounding is “if a passer, facing an imminent loss of yardage because of pressure from the defense, throws a forward pass without a realistic chance of completion.” Brady was not under pressure, so he’s free to throw the ball wherever he feels like.

    INTENTIONAL GROUNDING

    It is a foul for intentional grounding if a passer, facing an imminent loss of yardage because of pressure from the defense, throws a forward pass without a realistic chance of completion. A realistic chance of completion is defined as a pass that is thrown in the direction of and lands in the vicinity of an originally eligible receiver

    If the Cowboys could've gotten a defender in the same zip code as Brady, we'd have an argument for grounding.

    Right before those 3 "throw aways" Brady went downfield for Brown vs Brown, he was under pressure and heaved it downfield and no receivers was within 20 yards. That should have been intentional grounding.

    Also, earlier in the game one of the Bucs LBers ripped his helmet off of his head and slammed it into the ground, while still on the field. Isn't that the ole Emmitt Smith rule and should have been a personal foul. They even showed it on the replay, no mention by the announcers nor was a call made.

    don’t forget about ripping helmet off ripping off in the field of play on 3rd down and would have given us a 1st down and we probably would have scored.

    Was it a fan though? I think it was actually Gronk in the stands, working on his next commercial.

    that would have been a terrible ticky tack flag if they had called that against David giving us free points. just as stupid as the call against Brice Butler in 2016 against Green Gay. I hate double standards, but ticky tack flags aren't the answer.

    LOL, no kidding. And other than Armstrong getting Brady's arm once, they never came close enough for a stupid roughing the passer penalty. You scratch him and you get called out.
