The last time Tom Brady and Alex Smith were in the NFL Playoffs, things were a little different. Tom Brady was a Patriot. Alex Smith was a Chief. WFT was called something else. The Buccaneers were eight seasons deep into a playoff drought.
Brady’s first season in pewter and black has snapped a playoff drought that has spanned since 2007. Smith, who returned to the field this season after a career-threatening leg injury, will start under center in a playoff game for a franchise that hasn’t seen postseason football since 2012.
BRB, this is your Bucs-WFT Wild Card thread. Enjoy!
