American football is a team sport, and one thing goes hand in hand when talking about the title in Tampa Bay
The championship season of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers it cannot be understood without two great elements. One, Tom Brady and two, the defense that performed superlatively throughout the postseason. American football is a team sport, and one thing goes hand in hand with the other. Nobody wins a Super Bowl by itself.
Every champion team needs a great leader. The Buccaneers They were talented, but they were an anarchic, erratic, inconsistent and irrelevant team. They were the laughingstock of the NFL, they had twelve consecutive seasons without making the playoffs. I arrive Brady and it caused a change in culture, that’s the most shocking thing. Of all the seasons that I have seen BradyThis is the most impressive for that transformation he achieved in a year in which there was no preseason, with new coaches, system and teammates.
When you throw over 70 percent of your completions, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions in a Super Bowl, you will receive the appointment of Most valuable Player. That must be understood as such, and that award in the hands of Brady. However, to my liking, the defensive coordinator Todd Bowles it also has a superlative merit in the outcome of the game. Then I explain it.
The offensive of the Kansas City Chiefs he only got field goals. It was only the third team in Super Bowl history to go without a touchdown; the Miami Dolphins of edition VI and Los Angeles Rams of the LIII were the others. Could they have imagined it? The attack of Kansas City that tore apart Tampa with more than 200 yards of Tyreek Hill in the first quarter of your regular season game? Hardly. I am not surprised by the victory of the BuccaneersWhat surprises me is the shape, the margin, how misguided it looked Kansas City attack.
The defense of Tampa He only needed to send blitz (linebackers or safeties) six times in the entire game. What does that mean? That only with the frontals he started running Patrick mahomes all over the field. This is relevant because the remaining seven players were covering pass, with the quarterback under pressure. Mahomes he was rushed 24 times in the match, he was beaten 12 times. The Chiefs they had a hole-filled offensive line, with both of their tackles knocked out with injury. There is the key to the game.
The game was left to duty, but because Chiefs they did not show up. I can even say that Andy Reid he didn’t have his five senses engaged in a game of this importance, because I never saw adjustments to help him Mahomes had more time. Distractions like the one on Thursday night because of the mess your son got into will surely have taken away his sleep.
For now the Bucs they are champions, congratulations. There is no evil that lasts a lifetime. They had the wisdom to bring the best in history who, even at 43 years old, was able to change the narrative of the franchise. That coupled with the talent of the team give us the champion of Super Bowl LV. For the history.
