    As a Colts fan (as well as Bears), I think we could have done better or just stay with Jacoby and spend money elsewhere like a friggin WR.

    25 million for Rivers….I about fell out of my chair. What a horrific way to spend that kind of cash (nothing against the guy but wowwww)

    Yeah I’m an “adopted” Colts fan with it being my new home town. That was a foolish move IMO. That’s a huge one year deal too. Hope I’m proved wrong but damn.

    They’re in win-now mode, as evidenced by dealing for Buckner. With Cooper gone and Green franchised, there was nothing great at WR to spend for. I’d guess they’re banking on Parris Campbell staying healthy and taking a step up.

    Understand win-now mode but getting there with Rivers is not the answer. I wish they would have gone after Diggs.

    Interesting choice for Brady. Doesn’t Arians run a heavy pass offense or was that just because Winston would throw 3 picks at the beginning of each game? I’m not sure how long Brady will last if he is throwing it 40-50 times a game

    I personally think brady will thrive, they’ll use the play action well, I’m not sure he will be just launching it deep anymore, maybe a few shots a game, but oj brate and godwin should go nuts in the middle of the field.

    Absolutely, this sucks, i wanted sometime off from nba, alot of times the grind is just wearing having a break is nice, but i can’t wait for hopefully summertime nba transitions into nfl season.

    Btw I’ll be huge on cardinals in dfs this year, think it’s hard to ignore with nuk now there, kyler should have a big sophomore year.

    Agreed. Cardinals just need to upgrade the offensive line in the draft and they will be one of the top offenses this year

    Too bad we really won’t get an to answer the question….was the Pats success more Belichick or Brady. As Brady will be 43 when the season starts, and while still competent, he’s most likely just a middle of the pack QB at this point in his career.

    To me it always seemed like more Belichick. The only argument for Brady that really had me questioning that line of thinking, was that none of Belichik’s assistant coaches who went on to become head coaches experienced much success at the NFL level.

    Still…curious to see how this season plays out for the Pats and Bucs, even though that question isn’t likely to be answered….unless….the Bucs make the Super Bowl.

    IMO other coaches seemed to make big mistakes against him(the patriots) .
    Whether Carolina kicked the kickoff OB with a minute to go.
    Ravens calling timeout with the correct play called.
    seattle trying to pass on a 1st and goal with lynch still in beast mode
    ryan trying to pass on 3rd down when time was their best friend.
    tomlin running a reverse on his own 10and steelers fumbling the ball or faking a fg up by 3 with 3 minutes to go from the 40/
    Kc with too many men on the field
    Other teams seemed to make bad choices at crunch time.
    Dont get me wrong Tom is a great QB but Bill put more fear in other coaches play calling than anything else.
    On a side note he is done and the bucs will still make out from the signing whether they win or lose.

    He had no reliable talent around him last season.

    Now he gets Evans, Godwin, Howard and Brate.

    Plus a pretty solid defense.

    As long as the Bucs can stay relatively healthy, they should be the favorites to win their division. Yes, over the Saints. Which is the other reason this is great. We get to see Brees and Brady at least 2 times.

    I think it was a combination of both. Dont think either would of had the same amount of success without each other

    Oh, it was definitely a combination of both. Could possibly be equal parts Brady/Belichick. Just think the question that’s most often debated is who was MORE responsible for the Pats success.

    Steelers yet again silent in free agency…Diggs would have been a nice move..we also need a RB!

  • superjon

    I checked odds on Bucs winning the SB after the Brady news was announced and they were at 15-1

    Now it’s 12-1

    As a Bucs fan, I’m more excited about what signing Brady does for the franchise than solely what he brings as QB. Players who are FA’s are contacting the Bucs saying they want to go there and play – TB has not been near the top of anyone’s “where I wanna play” list but things are starting to change.

    Brady has said he would like AB84 on his team; not that I like where Brown’s head has been the past year but no doubting his ability and I sure like the look of Evans/Godwin outside and AB84 in the slot playing the Edelman role for Brady.

    We need 2 solid OT’s to protect Brady from the Edge rushers as our inside 3 OL are pretty good and underrated.

    Well, if Brady completes more than 50% of his passes and doesn’t throw an early pick 6 to put them behind, he can easily get away with 30 throws a game instead of Winston’s 40-50

    I think that would be ideal
