Going into the game, I really thought that Green Bay would have the edge, even though the Bucs did beat them 38-10 in the regular season. Mr. Chat has been a Buc's fan since the day they came into the league, so we've sat through a hell of a lot of losing seasons, and one very good season with our one Super Bowl win. We've seen a steady improvement - especially with the defense - over this season, but making it this far was truly a shock! They've still got some work to do, but they looked really good the first half of this game, and then, as expected, Aaron & team came out balls to the wall in the second half. It was another nail biter finish that we're all too used to! Two of our Safeties were out of the game, so that didn't help, and the Bucs have a tendency to let a game slip away from them in the second half. We are thrilled that they hung on for the win!
We were never fans of Tom Brady before, but being fans who never abandon their team, we could at least pull for the team and put aside our feelings for him. However, having listened to his interviews and seeing how he rallies our guys to be better players, well, we were slowly won over. I did give him kudos when he was in New England with how he didn't get paid as much as he could've so as to leave room for really good players to join their team, so that's something I can respect. I understand the Brady hate though. We used to feel that way too, but since he's taken our team from the Bad News Bears to an NFC championship, well, I can cheer for that!
I have nothing against Mahomes, but I'm already sick of hearing about him. I know a lot of people will be sick of hearing about the Bucs getting to play in their own stadium, but it sure does suck when 2 other teams play on your home turf for a Super Bowl Championship. Been there, done that! Fire up the cannons!
