Yeah, the bucs thrive in cold weather...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tampa_Bay_Buccaneers

While the Bucs played well in 2000 and 2001 and made the playoffs in each season, they were unable to fulfill their primary goal of a Super Bowl victory. The wild card spots that Tampa Bay earned forced them to go on the road for their postseason opener in each year, and both road games took them into frigid Philadelphia to play the Eagles. The two losses also continued an unusual losing streak for Tampa Bay: they remained winless all-time in games played when the temperature was less than 32 °F (0 °C).

https://thetandd.com/news/cold-weather-history-follows-bucs-to-nfc-title-game/article_a6780e6a-cab5-55a4-adf2-7aa761930fb8.html#:~:text=The Bucs%2C who travel to,2000%2C twice in the playoffs.

The Bucs, who travel to Philadelphia for Sunday's NFC championship game, are 1-21 in temperatures below 40. 

Never said they thrived in cold weather.  Actually, your last comment proved my point... notice the "1"?  Every year it was "the Bucs have never won when the kickoff temp was below X°, but every year that number got lower because they would eventually win a game.  The goal posts kept moving because the Bucs kept doing something that didn't fit the narrative, so the narrative had to change.  Then it became, as you stated, "they are 1-X in temp below X°".  Also, did you notice how your links are almost 20 years old?  You don't find it odd that if you do a google search on the Bucs record in cold games, there's really not much after 2003.  Little tidbit about that NFC Championship game that you so boldly noted... the temperature at kickoff was 26°.

 

The same is being done with Brady.  It was, "No 40 year old QB ever made it to the Super Bowl".  Then Brady did it.  So, the narrative changed. "No 41 year old QB ever made it to the Super Bowl".. then Brady did it.  So the narrative changed again.

No one is trying to crown Brees.  Most people are saying he's washed and can't throw downfield.  And that's absolutely true.

I've heard over and over, from tv and radio people, talk about the Saints as their Super Bowl favorites.  So stop with "No one is trying to crown Brees".

Yeah for sure...had I wrote:

"Looked young, fast & lucid"

Now that would be a fantasy statement.

People would think you're just nuts there... because he wouldn't look young and was NEVER fast.
