7x Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to revenge what many will call a “heartbreaking” loss last year to the Los Angeles Rams at home in the divisional round of the 2021-2022 NFL playoffs.
What was on the board of being the biggest comeback in NFL history, the Bucs fell short and lost the game 30-27 to the Rams.
The standard in Tampa Bay has changed significantly since the arrival of TB12 with them winning the Super Bowl his first year there in 2020, beating the then defending champions the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 with Brady winning his fourth Super Bowl MVP award and his seventh Super Bowl ring.
Thompson feels as Brady is only going to get older, the Bucs Super Bowl window is only getting smaller as the door will eventually shut. Along with that, losing three top tier offensive line can be a blow to this team, along with losing veteran tight end Rob Gronkowski to retirement this offseason, they will look to scrap up what’s left and go for another run at the Lombardi trophy.
The good news is that they did extend star wide receiver Chris Godwin to a three year extension deal worth about $60 million this offseason, along with signing veteran wide receiver Julio Jones as well and still having the veteran wide receiver Mike Evans around, Brady has plenty of weapons to work with in Tampa.
When asked about the expectations Brady and the Bucs, he stated …
” Yeah … I think this year it’s Super Bowl or bust for the Buccaneers this year. With nearly all of their starters most likely hitting free agency next offseason with most of them not returning next year. It’s do or die for the Bucs, if they’re going to make a run, they have to make it now.”
