NEW ORLEANS — Not so fast, Tom Brady. This Tampa Bay Buccaneers stuff will take some time.

Brady’s much-anticipated debut in a Bucs uniform came with a reality check at an empty Superdome that gives pause to the predictions of some people that a Super Bowl is some sort of destiny.

Sure, it’s still possible that the Bucs can become the first team to host a Super Bowl in their home stadium. It’s only Week 1. Not time to overreact.

Yet the first impression clearly did not live up to the hype.

Brady threw two interceptions – one returned 36 yards for a score by Janoris Jenkins, another by Marcus Williams setting up an Alvin Kamara touchdown – to help dig the hole that the Bucs couldn’t climb out of during a 34-23 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The NFL’s oldest active player, Brady, 43, looked the part at times, while struggling to find a consistent rhythm. In completing 23 of 36 passes for 239 yards, he produced a ho-hum passer rating (78.4), was sacked three times and had as many picks as TD passes (2).
