Dashon Goldson Embracing ChallengeOctober 31st, 2013
Seattle’s chamber of horrors may just be the worst place for visiting teams. Hopped up on massive amounts of caffeine and, well, other tailgating products, Seahawks fans are raucous, rabid, nuts, loud.
Bucs safety Dashon Goldson played at the chamber of horrors (tip o’ the cap to eye-RAH! Kaufman for coining that phrase) many times in his years with the 49ers. He’s used to it. So, as Goldson stated yesterday with the Bucs’ pen and mic club, bring it on.
It isn’t just the famed Seattle 12th man the Bucs are facing. The Seahawks are arguably the best team in the NFC. And the winless Bucs are, naturally, major underdogs. Goldson embraces the challenge.
“That’s always the beauty,” Goldson said. “When people don’t give you hope and pick you to lose and you go out there and surprise everybody, there’s no better feeling. It’s up to the guys in this locker room to get that done.”
Now Joe cannot sit here and predict a win. Joe isn’t the type to hit the bottle this early in the morning, after all. Stranger things have happened though. Joe isn’t sure there was one Bucs fan in 2009, who predicted Josh Freeman would make his first start and beat the playoff-bound Packers.
That was a true shocker. Joe isn’t sure this year’s Bucs have that in them.
