The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wasted no time finding success with Tom Brady as the team’s starting quarterback last year.
After a dominant performance over the final eight games of the 2020 season – including in the Super Bowl over the Kansas City Chiefs – expectations for the Buccaneers are sky high again. In fact, some believe the Buccaneers will finish the 2021 season without a loss.
Don’t count ESPN’s Mike Greenberg among them, though. He thinks Brady and company will lose when Brady make his return to Foxboro against the New England Patriots.
“If you think Brady wants to win that game, Bill Belichick would give up all of his rings to win this game,” Greenberg said during a segment on ESPN’s “Get Up.”
Here’s more of what Greenberg said, via NESN.com:
“Bill Belichick is going to throw the kitchen sink at the Buccaneers. Brady has already won a Super Bowl since. Bill Belichick is the one who wants to win that game. That’s the spot that Tampa is finally going to lose.”
It’s a bold prediction from Greenberg, especially considering the Buccaneers will likely be heavy favorites when they travel up north.
Cam Newton and Mac Jones continue to battle in training camp, but neither is close to as good as Tom Brady right now.
It will take a herculean effort from the Patriots defense to win the game.
