Pissed Off Tom Brady Press Conference Transcript

The amount of headline attention garnered by Tom Brady’s post-game press conference yesterday is surprising. It was even picked up by TMZ, whose sports interests generally revolve around scandals and untimely deaths.

Would it be as news worthy if it wasn’t Tom Brady?

Probably not.

It seems to have grabbed as much or more attention than the game between Washington and Tampa Bay itself. That’s a bit of a shame when a bottom five team just beat the defending Super Bowl Champs. Read More

Loser Papers: 2021 Edition III – WFT Over Tampa Bay Bucs

It’s been a while since there has been an edition of Loser Papers here at THN. It’s a long story as to why – we were offline for a minute.

We’ve always enjoyed having a look at some of the funny things that get written in the press the day after a team is beaten by Washington. It’s harder and harder to call it “Loser Papers” because often there are no newspapers in that market anymore!!!

Still, we endeavour to find funny, often dire things said about the competition when they lose to Washington.

Here are a few examples from this week’s third win of the season:

Washington Vs Tampa Bay: How To Watch, Listen And Inactives

This match-up features two teams coming off of a bye week. The Washington Football Team and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers both lost the last game of football they played, and both will be looking to get back on the winning side of the ledger today.

Tom Brady has thrown a league leading 25 touchdown passes. He has a 5:1 TD to interception ratio. Not bad for a 44-year old quarterback. The Bucs are 6-2 but lost a tough division battle against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. They will be ready to play.

Given that the Washington defense is 27th in the league against the pass, it could be a long day for Football Team fans. Washington is looking to snap a four-game losing streak and get back into the thick of things in the NFC. Hopefully they can put on a good performance to honor Sam Huff, who passed away on Saturday.

The Loser Papers – 2018 Edition VI

With the victory over the Bucs, the Skins took a two game lead over the rest of the division, despite devastating injuries along the offensive line. Although they gave up ample yardage, the defense stiffened in the red zone, and took the ball away four times. Surely, this was a game this Tampa Bay team should have won. Let’s find out from The Tampa Bay Times what happened:

Cardinals Put Cog in Redskins Playoff Hopes

After four lead changes in the second half alone, Carson Palmer hit J.J. Nelson with a 42-yard pass with less than two minutes remaining, to take a 31-23 lead and put the game away for good. In the process, the Redskins lost their grip on the second wild card spot as they fell to 6-5-1; and coupled with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers win, put the Redskins on the outside looking in, as they drive for the playoffs over their last four games. You can check an American site that offers updated NFL lines for this week’s pertinent playoff match-ups.

Palmer threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns on the day, but second year running back David Johnson was the difference maker.

He not only scored twice, but led all running backs in carries and yards (18 for 84), while simultaneously leading all receivers in both receptions and yards (9 for 91). He scored one on the ground, and one in the air for good measure. The Redskins didn’t appear to have an answer for him all day. Read More
