By at least two touchdowns, Bucs coverage was the most read stuff in Creative Loafing Tampa Bay’s Arts & Entertainment section. I’ve been proud of our young football writer’s fandom and willingness to put all-too-real takes and score predictions out there. While it was hilarious to see Gronk’s condo sale make headlines, it was Antonio Brown, Gronk and quarterbacks—but not necessarily Brady—that took up up all the air.

Antonio Brown is promoting his music while running from the Tampa Police Department

Tampa Police Department (TPD) issued an arrest warrant for Antonio Brown stemming from a November domestic battery charge. And, while the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer wide receiver-turned rapper was still on the lam earlier this month, he’s been using this time to promote his new music.

‘The unit is a dump’: Gronk now knows what it’s like to rent in Tampa

One of the more appealing things about four-time Super Bowl champ Rob Gronkowski is he really does pull off the “normal guy” persona, and it just so happens that getting screwed by a shitty landlord is one of the most normal things that can happen to anyone in Tampa.

In October, Gronk’s former downtown Tampa rental, a 4,462 square-foot penthouse in the Towers of Channelside complex, went on the market for $5.4 million. But now Gronk went on social media to say the place is a “dump,” and he doesn’t want to be affiliated with the sale.

“It was the only option at the time,” said Gronk in the post. “The whole unit needs to be redone. The owner is trying to rip people off/he is not a good guy. Stop using my name to sell it.” Gronk isn’t the first (and he certainly won’t be the last) person in Tampa to reportedly experience the wrath of a negligent landlord.

The five most likely quarterbacks for the Tampa Bay Bucs next season

A month before Brady ended his 40-day retirement, Bucs columnist Carter Brantley went off on potential QBs for Tampa Bay. We can just run the same article again this offseason, right?

Tom Brady will come out firing after last week’s embarrassing loss

After getting beat by Cleveland, Carter was right about TB12—it just took a miracle fourth quarter drive to make his prediction for a win come true. Pretty sure Carter said Tampa Bay would win the Super Bowl this year, too.

When it comes to Kyler Murray being the next Bucs QB, never say never

We’re all for this social media conspiracy to bubble back up.
