If we can come out of the bye and kick Tommy and the Bucs down another peg, I’ll start to believe that coach is a killer.
 

MM was stellar after the bye for many seasons.  I defended him longer than most but it was after we got completely ground to bits by Detroit after a bye I knew he had lost the magic. It was Hundley at QB so I didn’t even expect the W, just to play with some fire and the team was completely flat. 

Water under the bridge. LaFleur needs to build his own legacy and he’s off to a great start.  Coming off a bye the team should be rested, healthy and sharp.  Tampa has a mean defensive front but they have weaknesses that I would love to see us exploit.

They blitz and absolute ton of first down.  I have no doubt that MLF will be ready for that.

Suh is still good, but he's not all word.  Barrett is good off of the edge, but I think the blitz frees him up a lot.  I saw Gholston (whom I don't know) whip a lot of Bears last night.

I came away impressed with the Bucs front (like you), I was impressed by their blitz, but their secondary looked weak.  

Offensively, Brady had a senior moment at the end of the game.  But that offense looked very disjointed.  The Bears D will do that to a lot of teams, though.

Was indiffernt on the hire, but so far I've bought into everything he has brought to the table. I believe him and Rodgers when they talk about having a good relationship. I think its a very refreshing change to what we saw the last couple years of Mike's run. I think we can definitely win a title with Matt.  Also, that hair part is on point!

Mac in Dallas has been behind a lot and probably had to go for it a bunch just to stay in games.

MLF has done while having and keeping leads.

Fwiw, I'm pretty sure there was at least twice I saw him go for it when I was like what the hell are you doing Mike, like early or still close. For better or worse, he does seem to be more aggressive, which I think was to be expected.

Is Dallas' D not all that great?  One would think with that RB they would be running more but Mac likes to throw it instead.

Actually, I checked my work and realized I made a mistake. We trailed NOLA 17-13 at the half (so I've corrected/edited my initial post) - took the 2nd half KO and scored a TD to take a 20-13 lead. So technically, we trailed NOLA for that first drive (2:02) - and never thereafter 👍

Dallas has a bunch of journeymen on the DL.  Lawrence is not playing up to his contract.  LVE is out with injury, so is Sean Lee.  Their secondary is injured, and not very good to start with.

Offensively, their LT and RT are on IR.  Their all word center retired.  And their replacement center is injured.  O-line is a mess and that makes it tough for them to run..

Yup.  MLF has been aggressive while holding leads, not while chasing from behind.  It's lead to a few 'hold yer breath" moments, and so far the results are great.
