    Lost in the Super Bowl accolades is the job Jason Licht has done. Dude has run circles around Mayock and Gruden.

    "Well done, Jason Licht.

    The Buccaneers general manager has kept a low profile throughout much of the 2020 season, and perhaps that is a habit borne of ducking so many insults from years gone by.

    He did not get a lot of the same plaudits or huzzahs of Super Bowl general managers of the past, and there are logical reasons for that. To begin with, his report card from 2014-17 is spotty, and the team’s record was dreadful. And it’s at least worth raising an eyebrow that his personnel decisions grew noticeably more successful once Bruce Arians became the head coach.

    How about 2020? Joke all you want about how hard it was to spot Tom Brady on the scrap heap, but Licht is the guy who signed him and won a Super Bowl.

    Now consider the draft. You might quibble about offensive players, but was there a better pick on the defensive side of the ball than Devin White in 2019? And of the four or five offensive tackles supposedly worthy of first-round status in 2020, Tristan Wirfs had the best rookie season of them all.

    But the bottom line is this:

    No general manager has had a better run of acquisitions the past two years. And, honestly, I don’t even think it’s close."

    Let’s start with the free agents. Was there a better signing in 2019 than Shaquil Barrett? He was a part-time starter in Denver, came to Tampa Bay for a modest $4 million salary and ended up leading the NFL in sacks.

    Problem is he has no track record to stand on. Couple that with what happens in games, and well, you know.

    Imo, more on the coaches. I know how Arians operates. It was the same way out here. He'll go back to drafting Vernon Hargraves top ten without guidance.

    How it is lost? The Ring is proof that the GM crushed it. How else does it happen?

    That's the most relatable Brady has ever seemed to me and I hate him slightly less for that... and for that I hate him.

    When the fan ran on the field, I told my kids of when Mike “Mad Dog” Curtis hit a fan that ran on the playing field.

    When asked why he did it, he replied “The way I see it, he was invading my place of business,” he explained. Videoof the incident remains, and Curtis later wrote a book titled, “Keep Off My Turf.”
