  • Steven, I'll start with you.

  • Are you a little bit worried about the bucks?

  • Even though they did get the win?

  • Hell, yeah.

  • Taylor, Hannah G.

  • Listen, he might be the future signal caller for the Washington football team.

  • I was impressed with what I saw from him.

  • He deserves props, no question about it through for over 300 yards.

  • I get all of that.

  • But damn, it was the second start, and it was a postseason game and the Buccaneers giving up the yardage to him.

  • I had a problem with it.

  • It wasn't like the Washington football team had to start running game with Antonio Gibson and them Saturday.

  • That wasn't the case, but somehow, some way this kid had gutsy at moxie.

  • He threw some really good dimes, No question about it.

  • I love that touchdown.

  • Pass it.

  • He threw the bottom line.

  • Is this.

  • When you look at what he brings to the table, um, if you're the Tampa Bay Buccaneers there with tar balls, is your defensive coordinator with these brothers on that squad?

  • There's no reason if you're talking about ultimately going against Drew Brees and that potentially Amerie Rogers.

  • If Taylor Hannah G is giving you problems.

  • What the hell are we supposed to look forward?

  • Toa again?

  • I'm not jumping off the bandwagon or anything like that.

  • Even though I do believe both Green Bay in New Orleans are better.

  • Tampa Bacon beat them both.

  • But you certainly I ain't gonna be able to beat them if your defense is looking the way that it look.

  • This game was entirely too damn close for too long before Tom Brady and were ultimately able to pull away.

  • And I would say this getting Devon White back who's been going to previous two games because he was on that covert 19 list is gonna help because he ain't that great and coverage.

  • But he is a great spot for, you know, when when you're looking at the quarterback.

  • And obviously he could help get to the quarterback as well.

  • So in that regard and helps stuff the running game.

  • So in that regard, I'm happy that he's getting back and I expect things to be better.

  • I loved what I saw from Tom Brady.

  • I loved what I saw from Mike Evans.

  • Chris Godwin, Dammit, Stop dropping so many passes.

  • Okay, get that together.

  • Lenin for net fielded average because Ronald Jones second wasn't there and Lenin for net rushed for 93 yards.

  • But he was very productive.

  • So I see things on offense.

  • Got no issues there.

  • My issue is with Tampa's defense.

  • I didn't like how they were allowing Callahan Nikki to fling the football because my imagination ran wild thinking about Drew Brees we already seen.

  • We've already seen what New Orleans has done the Tampa this year, particularly the last time they were in Tampa.

  • And obviously, if you were lucky enough to get past that, you will likely have that bad man known as Aaron Rodgers waiting for you.

  • Taylor.

  • Hi, Nicky.

  • Should not have been given you the trouble he gave you this Saturday.

  • If you are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Bruce Arians.

  • I'm not happy about that.

  • I'm not worried about the bucks.

  • I mean, I didn't think they were gonna win the Super Bowl this year, but I thought they'd win a playoff game and they've done that.

  • First of all, their defense did not play.

  • Great.

  • Stephen A.

  • You're right.

  • They didn't get a lot of pressure up front, which is surprising you would think, Um, considering total defense, they were the sixth best in the league this year in the regular season.

  • That happens.

  • Not every defense looks great every week.

  • But the Bucks?

  • The question is, do they have a good defense or not?

  • Yes, they dio.

  • They have a very good defense.

  • They have not just a top half defense.

  • They have a top quarter like 20 top 25 percentile defense in the NFL.

  • If that's not Elite, it's the next thing to it.

  • So I'm not worried about that, really.

  • Meantime, Tom Brady's looked excellent and part of the like, I admit it.

  • It's not just, I was prepared to say, Tom Brady, you put up numbers this year.

  • Of course, who wouldn't any average quarterback would in this offense with these weapons?

  • And by the way, they even protect very well from for him.

  • Normally mean Washington has a really talented defense, especially up front, and you know, So okay, they're gonna create some problems.

  • But actually, the offensive line for Tam has been pretty good and getting better all year, and they may be peaking now, or at least heading into the playoffs.

  • So I'm not too worried about that.

  • Brady has not just looked okay or what you'd expect from an average quarterback.

  • Given all the weapons he's given you a clear premium over that, I admit it.

  • So I'm not worried about the quarterback.

  • Really?

  • Well, when you put pressure on him, he doesn't like it.

  • Yeah, no kidding.

  • It's you know, of course, what quarterback likes it when you know they get pressure.

  • Of course he doesn't.

  • And he has never been great with that compared to when the pocket is clean.

  • And that's the key to beating Brady.

  • Yeah, Sherlock, do you think?

  • But again, I didn't think they're gonna win the Super Bowl.

  • But I'm encouraged by what I've seen.

  • And Stephen A.

  • The reason is more than anything, which shocks me to say they have Antonio Brown.

  • You know, when you think about the bucks, it's so easy that he actually goes under the radar now because Mike Evans is their best receiver and Godwin, right?

  • No, actually, if a B who now has games under his belt and his Maurin the flow of the offense as a B gets mawr to his normal self, he's clearly the best receiver on the team if he's just regular.

  • A B.

  • Mike Evans was never as good as a B, and neither is Godwin at their best.

  • There's never been a good A Xabi.

  • It is best, and A B is trending in that direction.

  • So now you've got to figure this Bucks team.

  • Damn, if you think of a B.

  • In fact, not just the name with those receivers and finally, Stephen A.

  • Yes, the States have beaten them twice.

  • That is true.

  • All the states get off to slow starts, usually in the first half, and that hasn't been the Bucks problem really recently.

  • That is true, but if the Bucks beat the Saints different, going to the frozen tundra than it is playing in Tampa.

  • But Stephen A.

  • They positively beat the brakes off the Packers the first time they played.

  • And it was at a time when the Packers were playing very well.

  • Tom Brady and the Bucks beat him, so I wouldn't say I watched that game yesterday and say, Boy, I'm scared for Tampa.

  • If anything, I'm encouraged.

  • I'm amazed at how long you continue to talk.

  • You're supposed to have a bad voice, but you keep going and going and going.

  • I mean, I just don't understand you right here.

  • You gotta have laryngitis, brother.

  • I mean, chill out the fact that the matter is Max Kellerman, none of that is relevant.

  • And here's the reason why.

  • Over the last five games, Brady has averaged over 300 about 342 yards passing.

  • They've averaged over 35 points a game in their last five games, but in for their last seven games.

  • They surrendered 300 yard passing games, and one of them was some dude named Taylor Hannah G.

  • Who was in his second career start.

  • And so when I look at Tampa Bay, what I'm saying is okay, I get all your points about their offense.

  • We expected their offense to be lethal.

  • You've got Bruce Areas.

  • You've got Byron Leftwich On top of it all.

  • You got Brady with God with whatever's with Antonio Brown were growing all of these words.

  • Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette.

  • They got weapons out the wazoo.

  • We got all of that.

  • But the bottom line is when we look at the Saints, we don't think they're better than the Saints.

  • When we look at the Packers.

  • We don't think they're better than the Packers.

  • Why?

  • Because we don't expect the defense to stop those other dudes.
