Super Bowl 2021 Tampa Bay is NFL champion for the second time in its history
PFor the second time in franchise history, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers They are at the top of the NFL. Tom Brady won his seventh ring in his first season since leaving the Patriots, coming to a team that had accumulated a lot of talent, but needed experience and confidence in the most important position. The GOAT arrived and they took the next step … and the next … and the next to take the Vince Lombardi trophy.
Since the 2007 season that Tampa Bay did not reach the Playoffs, 6th worst team in winning percentage. Only they and Cleveland missed those 13 seasons in the postseason. But in recent years, they were finding stars in the Draft.
It started in 2012, when they elected Lavonte David in the second round of the Draft. The heir to Derrick Brooks, he was one of the best of his position for much of the decade.
In 2013 they fired a starting defensive lineman in the fourth round, William Gholston. In 2014 and 2015 they took over three key pieces of their offense on the receiver Mike evans and the linemen Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet. In 2017 they were made with Chris godwin in the third round and the TE OJ Howard in the first, who was injured and missed the end of the year. They served the defense in 2018 and 2019 with Vita Vea, Carlton Davis and Jordan Whitehead, Devin White, Sean Murphy-Bunting and Jamel Dean, finishing the work in 2020 with the offensive lineman Tristan wirfs and the safety Antoine winfield Jr. 14 starting players in the Super Bowl were chosen in the Draft.
Before Brady’s arrival, they attracted three defenders who had been discarded by other teams, such as Ndamukong Suh, Shaq Barrett, and Jason Pierre-Paul. The first came after unsuccessfully hunting a ring with the Rams, the second could never shine in Denver behind Von Miller, while the third came out of the Giants after the fireworks incident that caused him to lose pair of fingers on his hand. Three key pieces to make the best defensive line in the NFL. And then Brady came along and brought in his friends for the offense.
Brady came to a team that had the pieces on offense and was the aerial attack with the most yards in 2019. And he brought with him Rob Gronkowski, in addition to a Antonio Brown already Leonard Fournette, who ended up being their starting running back after being cut by the Jaguars and that any team could take him, but no one wanted him more than the Bucs. TB12 dramatically reduced deliveries for Jameis Winston and posted 11 wins on the season, the second-most wins for the franchise.
After losing 3 of 4 games from weeks 9-12, the Bucs did not lose again. And as he himself would say Brady: They played the best game of the year to win the championship. As, the franchise, which remains the biggest loser in NFL history, has his second ring and Brady his seventh, more than any team.
