“We’re About To Shock A Lot Of People”June 3rd, 2013
Donald Penn may not be as large as some have claimed, but he does talk real big.
When Joe talked to Penn last week, Penn said emphatically of his beloved Bucs, “We’re about to shock a lot of people [this season].” He went on to say media and fans need to be focusing on the greatness of the team and how offseason moves have “put us above the level.”
The use of the word “shock” stood out to Joe, especially considering most observers (outside of Las Vegas) already believe the Bucs have a playoff-caliber roster.
In Penn’s world, does “shock” mean winning the NFC South, winning a playoff game, rolling out a top-5 offense behind a bruising offensive line?
Joe’s not sure what would constitute a “shock” to most Bucs fans. But Joe knows a revived pass rush, a top-10 defense and a division title sure would take Joe by surprise.
