Falcoholic Podcast: Bucs Preview with Trey Downey of Bucs Nation

Just how deep and talented are the Super Bowl champs? Ridiculously so.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Atlanta Falcons John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

No NFL team wants to start their season 0-2, yet the Falcons face that proposition as they travel to Tampa Bay to take on Tom Brady and the defending world champion Buccaneers. While we all know who Tom Brady is and what he can do (even at 44 years old), the story of the Bucs goes far deeper.

I was joined on the podcast by Bucs Nation podcast host Trey Downey to give us a deeper look at our division rival and why they may be even better this year than they were in 2020. Topics include:

  • Whether or not Tom Brady has slowed a step (he hasn’t)
  • The plethora of top receivers he has this year in Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown
  • Oh yeah, that Rob Gronkowski guy has tagged along as well
  • The running backs and why this may be the weakest position on the offense
  • The stout offensive line and which (if any player) may be the weak link here
  • The emergence of Vita Vea and pairing him with a ridiculously deep defensive line
  • The underrated linebacker corps
  • The cornerback situation and why there could be opportunities for Atlanta on Sunday
  • So much more

As always, you can find the podcast wherever fine podcasts are available or you can listen below:
