Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is ready to cheer on her husband Tom Brady as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship this afternoon.

Bundchen posted four pictures to her Instagram account to show support for Brady and the Bucs today. Additionally, she called in some reinforcements to cheer their team on. The model made sure to include some of the family’s dogs as part of their “cheer squad.” The family has four dogs, but Bundchen only included their two larger dogs in the photos.

The two adorable pups are Lua and Onyx, and Lua – the brown and tan dog – is evidently Brady’s favorite of the bunch. Bundchen dressed both of the dogs in Tampa Bay bandanas, while she herself sported her husband’s Bucs jersey. The model, and their canines, are hoping for a Buccaneers victory today in Green Bay.

Brady is one win away from heading back to the Super Bowl once again. If so, it would be his tenth trip to the big game after playing in nine Super Bowls with the New England Patriots. The star quarterback has won six titles out of his nine attempts.

“The cheer squad is ready over here!!! Let’s go papai! Let’s go Bucs!!! ✨✨✨ A torcida aqui está pronta !!! Vamos papai! Vamos Bucs!!!” she wrote on Instagram.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady Not the GOAT To Everyone

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is widely considered the greatest QB of all time by many. However, not everyone agrees, including arguably the greatest NFL player ever in any position in Jerry Rice.

Rice is still going with his longtime San Francisco 49ers teammate and quarterback Joe Montana over Brady. It’s understandable since not only were they teammates, but Montana is one of the few quarterbacks that has the track record to stack up against Brady. Montana led the 49ers to four Super Bowls and won all four of them. He also took home three Super Bowl MVP awards. Before Brady entered the league, most considered Montana to be the greatest of all time (GOAT). Yet, Rice is sticking with his guy.

“It’s a whole different era, and I would go with Montana any day because he was Joe Cool, and he was in an era where he was not as protected,” Rice explained. “I’m going to go with Joe Montana because, like I said, it was a different era. Not taking anything away from what’s happening today, but you look at the game today, the way it’s played, you look at how receivers are protected.”

Rice has a point. Numerous NFL rule changes over the years have been put in place to protect quarterbacks. The game itself has changed as well with more reliance on quarterbacks throwing the ball than pounding the ball with running backs. 3,000 passing yards in a season used to be considered stellar, but now 4,000 plus has become the norm. The eternal debate over who is the best quarterback ever rages on.
