New Englanders just can't seem to get over the fact that Tom Brady left the Patriots after 20 years with the organization. Even a Rhode Island Roman Catholic bishop took a shot at the six-time Super Bowl champion.
Diocese of Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin couldn't help but dis Brady's Super Bowl chances with the Bucs while also praising Robert Kraft at the same time for auctioning off his Super Bowl LI ring for charity.
Bob Kraft is auctioning a Super Bowl ring for charity. Very admirable indeed. But is it true that Tom Brady bid on it because he knows it's the only way he'll get another ring?— Bishop Thomas Tobin (@ThomasJTobin1) May 22, 2020
Brady's Buccaneers currently have the fifth-best odds at winning Super LV on their home turf at Raymond James Stadium, according to BetOnline, and it's not hard to see why.
The 42-year-old quarterback teaming up with the offensively minded Bruce Arians at head coach should bode well for Tampa Bay. In fact, Bucs general manager Jason Licht said Brady and Arians are a "perfect marriage" for his squad going forward.
You also can't forget about the extremely talented offense Licht has managed to put together for the 2020 campaign. On top of convincing longtime New England tight end Rob Gronkowski to come out of retirement and play in Tampa, Brady will have Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Cam Brate and O.J. Howard to throw the ball to this coming season...and don't forget Licht added some protection for Brady by drafting offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs in the first round.
So while Tobin may believe Brady's Super Bowl LV title chances are slim to none, the Pittsburgh native may want to be criticizing Kevin Colbert and the Steelers instead.
