This is a blow for the Bucs, but I’m not sure it’s the kind of blow that will matter as much as some think it will.
Let’s not pretend like Antonio Brown is the superstar that he once was while playing for the Steelers.
Is it bad for the Bucs that Brady is down another weapon in the receiving game? Sure, but it’s not impossible to overcome.
While I like the Packers to win this game, I’m not sure Brown’s absence will make much of a difference one way or another.
Brady is incredible at adapting to the talent around him, and there are still plenty of weapons for him to sling the ball to.
You can catch the game at 3:05 EST on Fox.
