Far-Fetched Friday: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Miss the 2023 Playoffs

09/07/2022

Tom Brady finally seems to be done with it all, despite coming back from retirement, so far all the reports seem like a man who has no real interest in playing any more football. Combine that with the injuries that have ravaged the team, and I'm here to predict that the Buccaneers miss the playoffs.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at the NFL goat and his impending retirement.

Current super bowl odds have the Buccaneers as the second favorites to win it all, right behind the Buffalo Bills. And I understand why that is, the Tom Brady effect is incredible as he's proved time and time again over his illustrious career. However, the Tom Brady effect isn't as effective if the man is on sad boy hours.

I'm not here to comment on the divorce rumors or anything of the nature, but when the man misses 11 days of camp for undisclosed reasons then comes back and says he's got a lot going on, it might be appropriate to say his mind isn't all the way in football.

Take away the Tom Brady effect and what you have is a team with a brand new head coach, who will be relying on three new offensive linemen, and various injury issues through the roster.

I am here to predict that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers miss the 2023 playoffs.

Even before Chet Holmgren's season-ending injury, Banchero was the favorite to win the rookie of the year award, but I'm going to go a step further.

Once seen as one of the most promising young stars in the NBA, Washington Wizards big man Kristaps Porzingis has had injuries derail every one of his seasons since his rookie year.

If there is one overarching theme that sports teach us, it is that life comes at you fast. And when I say fast, I mean really, really fast. Just ask Newcastle fans.
