Eagles 31, Bucs 21December 9th, 2012
The Bucs got spanked by a rookie quarterback and a crappy Eagles team.
Joe can’t sugarcoat this garbage outcome to a garbage team.
For the first time this season, the Bucs started a game slowly, blanked by a lousy defense in the first half behind ugly quarterback play by Josh Freeman. That’s two straight clunkers by No. 5.
The Bucs rallied back but couldn’t keep away from dumb penalties, 12 men on the field — didn’t that happen twice last week? — and couldn’t make a play when they needed one. Danny Gorrer will be kicking himself for a long time.
The Bucs are a talented football team that is now a losing football team, and one that has a lot to prove to its fans in these final three games. The Bucs were a good team a few weeks ago, but not anymore.
