The G.O.A.T. becomes a Buc

Brodie Chandler

It is official: the New England Patriots dynasty is over. After 20 seasons with the Pats, Tom Brady, a regional demigod, has moved on to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Yes. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Why, Tom? You said you wanted weapons and an offensive line. You said you wanted to play for a winning organization. The last time I checked, the Bucs went 7-9 and they haven’t made the playoffs since 2007. What were you thinking?

Of course, there’s the contract. Brady was offered $51 million guaranteed and $9 million in incentives, but there is no way one player will turn that around losing franchise and get them to the playoffs. 

But throughout the years, Brady has always proved the haters wrong.

And Brady will have some weapons, like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. But does he have the defense behind him to be a competitive team? I don’t believe so. The Bucs had one of the worst defenses in the NFL, ranked 15th in yards given up per game and 29th in points against.

Good with that.

 At best, Brady can lead the Bucs to 8-8 season, scrambling for a Wild Card spot.

Tom Brady, aka “The GOAT,” will always be a legend in New England, and once his career is over, he will be a first ballot Hall of Famer. But, for right now, the best we can do is wish you luck in Tampa, Tom. You’ll it,
