No, I'm not kidding.  In an off-season that is expected to see a lot of available quarterbacks looking for new teams it sounds like the Buccaneers are preparing to replace Tom Brady with Blaine Gabbert.

Tampa Bay's head coach Bruce Arians laid the groundwork for that earlier this week.  He talked up the 32-year-old veteran's skills while also pointing out why he hasn't had much success in the NFL.

From Tampa Bay Times:

“People may not like the overall record, but Blaine had eight head coaches and eight coordinators his first eight years,” Arians said. “He beat Jacksonville their best year and beat Tennessee their big year for us in Arizona. And he’s been in the system now. I don’t have a problem there and let Kyle continue to grow. Either one. (Gabbert) has never played with a team this good. He’s got all the respect in the locker room that he can have.”

Imagine going from Tom Brady to Blaine Gabbert.  Bucs fans are already contemplating this reality and don't like what they see.  You can't blame them.  It's going to be a rough transition if they roll with Gabbert.
