Just a quick aside, especially after that Brady Buc logo:

If Brady suddenly looks like, for example, Peyton Manning in his last year in Denver, will that be a) proof that age finally caught up with him b) further proof that the Bucs are inept or cursed, or c) both?

The Broncos won the Super Bowl in Manning's last season with them so...

Yeah, but the Bucs don’t exactly have that Broncos defense, either.

 

Well, few defenses in history have been as good as that Broncos defense, but the Bucs defense was actually top five in efficiency last season and had, by a mile, the best rushing defense in the entire league.  I want to say they may have even been the best defense in the league the last five or six weeks, but I can't find verification.  They were put in a lot of bad spots by Jameis' turnovers.

Yeah, Brady to the Bucs seems strange on the surface, but this team is actually trending in the right direction for the first time since the Bush administration. They’ve basically been a quarterback away from having a potentially great offense for a few seasons now. I think Brady might show everyone just how miserable Jameis Winston really was.

Going to have to be tough against the run facing McCaffrey, Gurley and Kamara twice

Sure, but they held McCaffrey to 110 total combined yards in their two games against Carolina last season and Gurley to 70 when they played the Rams.

 

I'm just saying their defense is way underrated.

 

On an unrelated note, I was really wanting to pull for the Bucs last season now that I live near Tampa but just couldn't because of Winston.  Now he's gone and it just feels like it would be so bandwagon-y because they brought in Tom Brady.

Let’s face it there really is no good excuse. 

Nike is a billion dollar company. I refuse to believe they don’t have the technology to produce a specific color. They can, they just CHOOSE not too.

I wondering that if it is a few year cycle, could the Buccaneers have forced Nike's hand to try to replicate the 97-13 shiny pants? I know these executives are not fashion experts but if they wanted to get this look closer to the first pewter set, they could express that. I would think that Nike could accommodate. I don't believe the "we can't make this fabric" claim.

Probably, and after a long fight, Nike would likely have ended up outsourcing like we saw with the teams that kept their old Ripon uniforms after the switch.  I honestly have no idea what goes into making a "color", but I'd imagine that Ripon still has the formula saved somewhere, and if not, there's other makers that could be tried.  Maybe Martin (if they still make that stuff.)  Nike is really just paying to put their logo on things - not sure if they care if they actually make it.  If anything, it's good for them to outsource, since the crap that they make tears so easily.
