With the arrival of the GOAT in Tampa Bay, football fans around the world are all asking the same thing: Does this make the Buccaneers an instant deep playoff contender? Haters will say no, "Brady is washed," "it was all Bill Belichick." But you have to wonder what Brady is capable of with the first cast of elite playmakers he's had in years. Sure, he had Gronk, Edelman, even Randy Moss in the twilight of his legendary career, but he has never had a field stretching unit like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Breshad Perriman. The craziest part is that Godwin is entering his sophomore season and has no where to go but up.
Another telling statistic is that the Buccs ranked 4th in scoring last season with Jameis Winston posting a 30/30 TD/INT ratio. With Brady at the helm, offensive efficiency should sky rocket for the Buccs and who is to say they won't become the most potent offensive force in the league? If they can protect him in the trenches and get a solid ground game going, it will be very difficult to stop Brady from marching down the field. The only thing that might hold them back is their defense which was abysmal last year. However, with Jameis averaging almost 2 INT's per game, it was tough to stay stout on defense. If Bruce Arians can get his defense together, the Buccaneers will be a terrifying team in the 2020 season. They might even be Super Bowl contenders right out of the gates.
