Tom Brady apologized to the Microsoft Surface tablet after the Saints' win, stating that his action will "probably inspire another meme on Twitter". In searching for the best (meme), here are a few: Meme 1 and Meme 2. Despite the topical potential, as a whole I was rather disappointed with the creativity of Twitter users.

It's true that the Bucs were without their top offensive weapons (Jones, Godwin) against New Orleans in Week 2, but expectations for the Bucs offensively need to be scaled down with the weak offensive line, and the lack of a top TE relief valve for Brady. Fortunately, the defense is playing at a high level and that just may be enough to get the team home field advantage through the playoffs.

The Bucs will be needing a starting QB for the 2023 season. Finding one at the bottom of RD1 seems unlikely, though Aaron Rodgers (2005 Pick #24) and Lamar Jackson (2018 Pick #32) show that it can happen. A number of QBs in CFB are starting the season hot, but to be sure there are some names that currently inhabit the reaches of QB draft boards who will work their way into RD1 contention by the end of the season.

BUCS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
