Losing Streak BrokenSeptember 9th, 2012
Last year Joe was no less than sickened by what was referred to as football the Bucs played during their heinous 10-game losing streak.
Stunning lack of preparation. No emotion. Pathetic fundamentals. Dismal execution. An offensive gameplan seemingly devised by someone who had been at Hooters all afternoon. An ole’ defense.
This is all history now, thanks in large part to the Bucs handing the stinking Panthers their collective hats with a smelly deposit inside.
Jeremy Trueblood is one who battled through the horror of last season and, while he couldn’t shut down the smile on his face, he’s trying to put Sunday’s win in perspective.
“Winning feels a lot to better than losing but we have a long way to go,” Trueblood told Joe. “Each is a one-game season and we have 15 to go.”
The was a game that got offenslive linemen geeked. Carl Nicks was once seen jumping up and down like he cashed a winning lottery ticket on a physical YAC by Vincent Jackson.
“It’s a fun way to close out a game,” Trueblood said. “I’m sure the left side of the line takes pride in that. It was pretty awesome.”
Joe is confident Bucs fans took a lot of pride with that type of win as well.
