Still An Important GameDecember 29th, 2012
It’s the last game for the Bucs tomorrow. There will be no January games. No postseason. Freefalling the past month took care of that.
But don’t dare tell any of the Bucs, much less Greg Schiano, the game Sunday against the Dixie Chicks is not important.
Take Michael Bennett for example. He’s looking to continue his solid season. A free agent in a matter of days, Bennett is looking to cash in big time and a solid game Sunday will only add to his suitors.
“It is important because it is the next game and an opportunity to show the coaching staff what kind of players we have for next year,” Bennett told Joe. “It is definitely a building block game so everybody should play hard no matter what.”
Bennett dismissed any notion that he is looking ahead to hitting the NFL lottery in the coming months.
“I mean, it is just the next game for me,” Bennett said. “I’m trying to do the best I can to try to win. [A new] contract comes when it comes. I’m not worried about that.”
