THE PESSIMIST: “Win Now” Move Is RightNovember 9th, 2011
THE PESSIMIST is a diehard Bucs fan whose negative writings appear occasionally on JoeBucsFan.com.
His views surely do not necessarily reflect those of Joe. However, Joe sure gets a kick out of them.
THE PESSIMIST felt compelled to emerge from his self-imposed lockout to comment on this glorious Albert Haynesworth signing, just in case the man with the worst work ethic in the NFL is back on the street soon.
Congratulations, Mark Dominik, for taking your underwear off, putting on your big boy pads, and putting on your win-now Chucky face.
THE PESSIMIST and real fans have our hearts and wallets in this game to win at all costs immediately — not play some fantasy lasting contender game that banks on players maturing perfectly and nobody getting injured. You like fantasy football? That’s fantasy football.
Real football is building the best possible team to win now, the kind of stuff fans of the Falcons, Saints, Jets and others lap up like starved dogs.
THE PESSIMIST is sickened by Bucs fans that would rather see Roy Miller act like Sean Mahan against the Texans, or have Da’Quan Bowers or someone else play out of position, rather than see if the Bucs can motivate Haynesworth to get after it for half a game or more.
Haynesworth is the best available option for the Bucs in this game. Period.
If Raheem can’t motivate Haynesworth for Sunday, then Raheem isn’t the man he thinks he is. Because THE PESSIMIST guarantees that Raheem is fired up and bouncing off the walls getting ready to deliver his famous core beliefs to Haynesworth in the morning — like Haynesworth never heard it from the last two old, stuffy coaches previously trying to motivate him.
This is your moment, Raheem. Shine, brother, shine.
For everything this signing represents for this year and beyond, THE PESSIMIST considers Haynesworth the most exciting thing to happen to the Bucs since they put their balls on the table and drafted Da’Quan Bowers.
