Losing Streak Broken

September 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.

    That’s the third player so far I’ve heard repeat Schiano’s “16 game season” philosophy. That’s an obvious sign that they are buying in. I never once heard a player say they were going to take off their underwear and put their face on people during Raheem’s tenure.

    Well done Greg Schiano.

    Breathtakingly different from last year.

    Maybe it was the coaching…….:)

    The only issue I saw is that Larsen gets overwhelmed on some pass plays. Bull rushes by big strong DT will give him issues like on the one holding call he had. Other than that the OL played well, on another note I really miss Davin Joseph because there weren’t many holes for Martin to run through. Go Bucs!!

    as the season goes on they will have to execute more in the passing game to be successful. The offense makes me nervous.

  7. Oahubuc Says:

    @rross, me too. We’re going to have to put up way more points against much better defenses.

    Refreshing to see what a good disciplined team looks like. Even the players seem to be impressed with their new system. One game in
    and it shows just what an amateur Raheem was at HC/DC. THis kind of
    team is what will fill the stadium once again. Congrats to the players & the Coach!
