Bucs Opponents Are 14-5October 6th, 2013
Like many Bucs fans, Joe’s trying to rationalize maintaining hope for the 2013 season. The Bucs must be able to find ways to win games and stop being a league laughingstock. This is not a rebuilding year.
Joe found a little hope today watching the Cardinals punish Carolina 22-6.
Joe really thought Carolina, coming out of a bye week, would bring more to the table. But they, like the Bucs, were thoroughly abused by the Arizona defense. With New Orleans staying undefeated and New England losing its first game today, Bucs opponents are now a stunning 14-5. The 2-2 Jets play at Atlanta on Monday night.
So perhaps one could look at this season to date and see a Bucs team that ran into tough matchups — and good teams — and choked a couple away.
Yes, Joe’s spinning. But the 14-5 mark is too big to ignore.
The 2-3 Eagles head to Tampa next Sunday. A couple of things are certain: the Eagles are going to stress the Bucs defense and Mike Glennon must play big on third down to give the Bucs a fighting chance.
