In the 11th hour, Tom Brady will save the day on the Big Ben Doomsday Clock

Even if Ben Roethlisberger wants to try to come back Tom Brady style, that ain’t happening. He was the epitome of a shot fighter last year. While the Pittsburgh Steelers made the AFC playoffs one last time with him as their quarterback, this team is going nowhere until they find the heir apparent. Unfortunately, this is a bad quarterback class, even if you love Pitt star Kenny Pickett.

So to give the six-time Super Bowl champions a seventh Lombardi Trophy, why not call up a guy who is looking for No. 8? For one year, Brady could hold his own in the AFC North. While there are no guarantees he would get the Steelers back to the Super Bowl, a lot of their perpetual nonsense would dissipate with The GOAT taking over the quarterback room. Just look what he did in Tampa.

The only thing that would be crazier is if the Steelers go into 2022 without a future at quarterback.

If Jimmy Garoppolo is too handsome for Tampa, bring back Tommy and the boys

Unless Bruce Arians wants to hand over the reins to Kyle Trask or see what Blaine Gabbert can do under pressure again, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to address their starting quarterback position aggressively with Brady walking away. Unfortunately, they don’t have a good draft pick, the free agent market is bare and are we sure they want to trade for handsome Jimmy Garoppolo?

While Garoppolo was selected by New England to literally replace Brady, he does not have The Patriot Way in his sails taking over this Mötley Crüe. Don’t kid yourself. No amount of Malik Willis Liberty tape will solve the Buccaneers’ quarterback issues heading more than aggressively begging for Brady to come back. If they do a good job convince, they’ll get Rob Gronkowski, too.

Beggars can’t be choosers, but these Buccaneer beggars will have a big choice to make soon.
