The end of an era for Tom Brady... in Tampa?

The end of an era for Tom Brady… in Tampa?

Many assumed when Tom Brady came out of his brief 40-day retirement that he would return for one final season. Rather, expect this to be a season finale in Tampa, but not a season finale at all. After the end of an era with the Patriots, it feels like the end of his second life with the Buccaneers.

Brady and the Buccaneers needed all of their little change to beat the poor Cardinals 19-16 in overtime on Sunday. You should know that the Cardinals were deprived of not only their first quarterback, Kyler Murray, but also his replacement Colt McCoy. In short, Trace McSorley fought a constant battle with the Bucs, who are supposed to be one hell of a football machine…

For die-hard Brady fans, it’s incredibly sad despite the final score. And despite the fact that Brady did his magic again in the fourth quarter.

The Cardinals had taken a 10-point lead with just over 10 minutes to play when the renowned quarterback regained his composure. He closed the deficit, forced overtime and orchestrated a 66-yard winning streak in overtime.

So that’s the expected result and some would say that’s all that matters. However, the Bucs, with their lackluster 7-8 record, will probably make the playoffs by default thanks to the fact that they play in a lousy division.

Facing a less than capable team, they would have finished with a disastrous 6-9 record.

brady’s future

Returning to Tom Brady, everything indicates that he will not return to Tampa next season. He has a whopping $375 million, 10-year contract to join FOX as soon as he finishes his playing career.

In March, the world’s most famous quarterback will become a free agent, and at 45, despite having a tougher season than he’s used to, he’s sure to be coveted. Without being the dominant Brady he was last year, he’s still better than many of his contemporaries.

According to some well-connected journalists on the NFL scene in the United States, Brady would like to continue playing next season.

Many send him to San Francisco, where he grew up dreaming of one day wearing the colors of the 49ers. In fact, it would make a great movie-worthy ending for this quarterback with a remarkable career.

The 49ers have a mature team, with exceptional defense and high-quality offensive weapons. They bet on the young Trey Lance in the first round last year, but after a rookie season to watch on the bench and the current season sabotaged by injuries, they still don’t know what they have on their hands.

Long live Vegas?

What if Brady’s future was in Las Vegas? The Raiders, despite acquiring star receiver Davante Adams, have regressed this season.

Although this offense is a turnkey project, quarterback Derek Carr isn’t up to it. Against the Steelers on Saturday night, he, too, was the victim of three interceptions. If it’s the end of an era for Brady in Tampa, it also appears to be the end for Carr in Las Vegas.

He certainly wasn’t a bad center for the Raiders for nine years, but this year, with the addition of Davante Adams, there was no way the Raiders were going to vegetate anymore.

With the Raiders, Brady would find his old accomplice Josh McDaniels, who was his offensive coordinator with the Patriots for much of his career.

On a recent episode of his podcast, Brady hinted that it was better for him to play and lose than not to play. It’s a contrast to the vision he’s always projected to win at all costs, but if he’s ready to join a quality team that isn’t going to break it all though, the Raiders could become a logical destination. .

It is still allowed to wonder if it will be the season too many. Already the current season does nothing to add to its legend…

WINNERS OF THE WEEK

1) Invoices

It took a while for the offense to get going against the Bears, but the 254 rushing yards are something to cheer fans about, as is the third straight division championship formalized. The Singletary (106 yards, 1 TD) and Cook (99 yards, 1 TD) duo hit hard.

2) The Ravens

Although the Ravens haven’t scored more than 17 points in the past four weeks, they have won three in those four games and clinched their playoff presence. They manage to survive without Lamar Jackson.

3) Nick Bosa

What an amazing player! Against the Commanders, Bosa had two sacks to bring his total this season to 17.5. He is just two sacks shy of Aldon Smith’s franchise record. He should be the candidate of choice for defensive player of the year.

4) jeans

Their win over the Eagles shouldn’t be diminished by the fact that they faced Gardner Minshew instead of Jalen Hurts. The Cowboys still closed two 10-point deficits. This duel offered quite a spectacle! Kudos to Minshew as well, by the way, for an inspired performance in defeat.

5) Justin Jefferson

In the win over the Giants, the catcher was monstrous again. He set two franchise records with 123 receptions and 1,756 yards this season. In no less than 24 of his 48 games to date, he has gained 100 or more yards. Amazing!

LOSERS OF THE WEEK

1) The Titans

This team is totally screwed. The loss to the Texans now puts the Jaguars ahead of the Titans in the South Division. Nothing counts with five straight losses.

2) lions

We were starting to get serious about the Lions and now they looked miserable against the Panthers. The defense allowed 320 rushing yards, a team record for the Panthers.

3) Commanders

The Commanders continue to fall and find themselves with a quarterback controversy on their hands. Taylor Heinicke lost his job to Carson Wentz, and he could become a hot potato down the stretch of the playoff race.

4) The browns

The Browns are officially out of the playoff race. After his suspension, Deshaun Watson needed to spark the offense. Since they’re 2-3, Watson has thrown just two touchdown passes and three of his passes have been intercepted. There is something to worry about.

5) The Broncos

Do we really need to say more about his disastrous performance? It would be a complete waste of power…

5 games of the week

1) Another little miracle

The Vikings and Giants looked headed straight for overtime with a 24-24 tie, but Justin Jefferson’s 17-yard gain on a Kirk Cousins ​​pass put the Vikings 42nd over the Giants. The Mauves relied on kicker Greg Joseph for a 61-yard field goal attempt. Joseph completed the punt, which is the longest in franchise history and his personal best. For the Vikings it was an 11me win by one possession this season, a record in NFL history. Jesus, Mary, Joseph!

2) Fatal escape

The Bengals completely dominated the Patriots 22-0 before they resurrected by scoring 18 unanswered points to spice up the game. The Patriots even had the ball with just under a minute remaining five yards from goal. On a first down, Rhamondre Stevenson dropped the ball. The prowler Vonn Bell caused him to lose the precious item recovered by BJ Hill. At 7-8, the Patriots are still alive, but they are in real danger of missing out on the playoffs.

3) Great game!

In the spectacular matchup between the Cowboys and the Eagles, the Cowboys tied the game 34-34 in the fourth quarter after being pushed against the wall. Struggling with an impossible third down situation and 30 yards to go, they managed to stay alive when Dak Prescott fired a 52-yard bomb at newcomer TY Hilton. This game gave the Cowboys wings. In addition to recording the tying touchdown, they then caused two successive turnovers, to record two victory-clinching placements.

4) Comedy of errors

It wasn’t one game, but a series of plays that sank the Titans, when they led 14-10 against the poor Texans. At the beginning of the last quarter, a breakaway by Derrick Henry was the trigger for the bleeding. The Texans then made a field goal, closing the gap to one point. On the ensuing offensive sequence, the Titans only gained two yards and were forced to punt. The Texans then scored the go-ahead touchdown. Along with two more chances, the Titans saw two Malik Willis passes intercepted. Hard, hard day!

5) Defense goes up

The Packers’ defense hasn’t made a lot of noise this season, but now that the team is struggling to survive and every game is a one-night stand, this unit has stepped up to the front of the Dolphins. In three successive sequences, Tua Tagovailoa’s passes were intercepted by Jaire Alexander, De’Vondre Campbell and Rasul Douglas. A disaster for the dolphins! Thus, the Packers still cling to the slim hope of carving out a playoff spot, while the Dolphins remain seventh and last in the AFC for a playoff spot.
