Bucs re-sign Suh


Recommended Posts

Brady ran it back in 2016 and 2017. They came up just short in the Super Bowl but they got there.

Then they got back again the next year.

Pretending this did not happen is goofy. Brady literally ran it back to the Super Bowl twice in the last 4 years.

They'll be back in full strength next year, didn't expect that. 

Wonder if it's a case of other teams undervalueing their FAs or everyone just hitching to be back for another run.... Probably a bit of both. 

Anyways, great job Bucs!

Not big on getting the band back together tbh.

Why? 

It's not like these guys were bums and went on a rampage solely because of Brady. Most of these FAs are genuine NFL stars, and consistent ones. 

No reason not to bring them back, yeah Suh is getting up there in age, but is still a valuable player, and certainly has a role in the trenches.

Suh's star has faded ever since he (presumably) went into anger management and hugged it out with his dad, but he's still a pretty effective player. Good for the Bucs.

Detroit has been starving. It has not helped.

Watched Detroit's 1991 playoff win over Dallas with my friend who was a Cowboys fan, he was not happy that day but his unhappiness was short-lived.

When was the last time that happened?

If you're asking when was the last time a superbowl winning team tried to run it back with the same starters everywhere, that's basically what we did. just this past season.

Though we were killed less by how that roster was built between '19 and '20, and more by just a really unfortunate combo of injuries. The whole run it back premise actually worked quite well, given the overall season results.

That was the one where Jimmy started Steve Beuerlein over a healthy Troy Aikman.

Things change around pretty fast there.

Essentially every player we've resigned outside of Barrett is on a 1 year deal with the voidable years on some contracts. It's about as perfect a scenario as you could dream up as a FO, as most of these guys are in later stage of their career. Your bringing back key pieces and proven products in your system, but if they do drop off you have no ramification beyond 2021.

Hell, even Barrett's deal is going to look like a complete underpayment next year with the money that is going to go out on plFA contracts.

It is wise. They locked up for one more year for a another SB run. And now in the draft they can just do whatever they want. Perfect scenario.

Tom Brady should keep them hungry, but another team will be more hungry.

Platitudes such as this mean nothing outside of "feel good" training montages.

Brady has been eating since 2001, and very few have been hungrier than him - and it's pretty evident looking at his resume. Both Mannings were hungry, Brees was hungry, Rodgers is hungry, Big Ben is hungry - but only guy actually eating his fill is Brady.

After a while, you have to see that nobody is really beating Brady's appetite. Others are hungry, Brady is starving, despite eating 10 different times.

Guys, if you torture this "hungry" metaphor any further, I'm forwarding this thread to Amnesty International.

we used to have a "Youngry" theme  going for a couple years under Raheem Morris, if that feeds your appetite

You're saying that you've had your fill of this metaphor? You're tired of us forcefeeding you figurative language?
