Chalk The Bucs Up For A DeuceAugust 31st, 2010
Per TBO.com, heralded Sports Illustrated NFL scribe Peter King unveils his NFL predictions tomorrow and the Bucs will check in with two wins, as in a 2-14 record in 2010.
No word yet on whether King thinks the Bucs’ defensive mastermind/head coach will earn a third year after a two-win season (though King did tell Joe in an exclusive interview earlier this year that if the Bucs were not “significantly” better, King has his doubts about Raheem’s return).
If Joe could corner King over a bowl of oatmeal, of which he’s so fond, Joe would like to know why he thinks the 2010 Bucs are worse than last year’s edition.
Joe’s just not seeing that.
The only thing Joe can figure is that King looks at the Bucs’ second rate corps of receivers and running backs, and a second-year QB, and just can’t imagine how things will get better. Also, King can’t have much belief in the Bucs’ head coach.
It doesn’t take much coaching talent to land a couple of Ws.
