TAMPA, FL. – There has been a lot of talk about which team can be deemed as the best squad in the NFL in the 2021 season. NFL stats show teams like the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and Las Vegas Raiders as all worthy candidates for the title of “league’s best team”.
But at the end of the day, when speaking of which team has the most merits to do the title of best squad in pro football, most signs still continue to point towards the defending Super Bowl Champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Before the season started there were already talks about how realistic the possibilities of Tampa Bay going undefeated throughout the season were, with a lot of football experts and analysts all seeing the reality of that scenario happening vividly.
Now, after having their first loss of the season coming via the LA Rams in LA, the Bucs have gotten right back to doing what they do best, dominating on the football field and showing everyone why they’re the team to beat once again. But is what the Bucs are doing enough to consider them the best team in the NFL? Here we bring you two reasons as to why considering Tampa Bay as the best football team in the league is justifiable.
The Never-Ending Tom Brady Effect
Tom Brady could play until he’s 100 years old and he would probably still be able to put up top-caliber numbers for a QB in the league. He could play in a team with his grandkids and he would still probably be not only the best Brady on the field but the best player all around.
His effect in the sport of football is undeniable and what he has done for the Buccaneers organization since leaving New England just goes to prove that you could have Brady play with a team made up of potato sacks and they would still be favorites to win week in and week out.
After joining Tampa Bay, Brady took this team and automatically made it a contender for the championship, all while giving bonafide Bucs stars like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin a true chance of playing for a championship-caliber team.
Not only was Brady able to make Tampa Bay’s football culture a winning one, he backed it up by bringing a Super Bowl win in his first season. Now, in his second season, it seems like Brady has not skipped a beat and has no intentions of stopping in his quest of leading Tampa Bay to yet another Super Bowl title.
His numbers throughout the first few games of the season have become clear indicators of Brady’s intention to continue dominating in the league as well. With over 1,300 passing yards, 10 touchdown passes and only 2 interceptions, Brady is clearly the driving force behind Tampa Bay’s overall favoritism to repeat as NFL champions once again. In simple words, Tom Brady automatically makes any team he’s in a top tier squad in the league, Tampa Bay being the perfect example of that.
On Offense, On Defense, This Team Is Rocking All-Around
Anywhere you look in Tampa Bay’s roster, you’ll find players that are becoming more and more important for the team’s functionality as the season progresses. First and foremost, even before the season started, Tampa Bay managed to pull off a move that is not usual in Super Bowl-winning teams.
The Buccaneers were able to resign all 22 of their starting players from their Super Bowl win over Kansas City once again, meaning that all of the players that made up the best team in the NFL were coming back to run the team all over again. If that move was any indication of what was to come for any usurpers for Tampa Bay’s throne as NFL champions, then what the Bucs have been doing since the beginning of the season is proof enough that they weren’t kidding when they put the league on notice that they were coming back for the title this season.
On offense, for example, former Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown has finally found the perfect team to try and stage a career comeback. If you add him in a mix of receivers with the likes of Chris Godwin Jr., Mike Evans, and Rob Gronkowski, it’s pretty clear that if there was ever to be a top-caliber supporting cast, Tampa Bay would have the best one around.
On the rushing side of the ball, while the heat is yet to come, Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II look like once they get going at the same level as the rest of Tampa Bay’s offense, they will become one of the most dangerous and damaging RB duos in the NFC. Lastly one of Tampa Bay’s biggest keys to success, their offensive line, is still showing why they are considered one of the best in the league, allowing Brady and company to do on offense as they please with relative comfort.
On the defensive side of the ball, having studs like Lavonte David, Devin White, Shaquil Barrett, William Gholston, newly signed Richard Sherman, and others have been working out just fine for Tampa Bay as this defense looks like it hasn’t lost its groove from last season’s dominant form.
While there have been moments where Tampa Bay has allowed more points scored on than usual, as the season progresses and the team continues to gain more and more playing time, this defense should come to its full senses and strength once again and become one of the main reasons as to why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are considered one of the best, if not the best team in the NFL this season.
