Earlier this week, Bruce Arians turned a few heads when discussing the possibility of handing the reins to Blaine Gabbert in the post-Tom Brady era.

"People may not like the overall record, but Blaine had eight head coaches and eight coordinators his first eight years. ... (Gabbert) has never played with a team this good," he said.

Will the Buccaneers really move ahead with longtime, veteran backup Blaine Gabbert?

The NFL world is discussing the idea via Twitter right now. Let's just say fans aren't exactly thrilled about the idea.

"Imagine going from Tom Brady to Blaine Gabbert," one fan tweeted.

"Blaine Gabbert isn't THE guy, but he's A guy," a fan wrote. "I don't think he'll lose the game for them, but he certainly won't be putting the team on his back and leading a comeback anytime soon."

"Breaking news: The bucs have been eliminated from 2023 playoff contention," one fan said.

It'd be quite the story if the Buccaneers went from Tom Brady to Blaine Gabbert. It'd especially hurt considering Tampa Bay has been rumored to be interested in adding a premier quarterback this offseason.

"Bruh how did they go from trying to get Wilson and watson to gabbert," a fan tweeted.

Blaine Gabbert is no superstar, but he'd be expected to lead the Buccaneers to the playoffs this upcoming season. Tampa Bay has too good a roster to simply throw in the towel due to Brady's retirement.

Should Blaine Gabbert get a shot to lead the Buccaneers offense this upcoming season?
