Did The Bucs Get Hosed?April 21st, 2017
It’s almost like a little boy was told to go to his room without dinner for complaining that mom served pork chops again.
Last year the Bucs were curb-stomped by the Dixie Chicks at home on a Thursday night, embarrassed before a national television audience.
It was the turning point of the season.
Four days before under the brutal Florida sun, the Bucs played damned near five quarters in an overtime loss to the Raiders.
While fatigue was certainly a factor against the Dixie Chicks, Joe wonders if the Bucs complained about not getting a bye week before that Thursday night game and, as a result, were punished this year?
When the 2017 schedule was released yesterday, it showed a nasty week to open the month of October. The Bucs will host the Giants Oct. 1 at 4:05 p.m., and four days later, they host the Belicheats on a Thursday night broadcast on CBS.
Thursday night against the Super Bowl champs four days after playing a 2016 playoff team in the evening? That’s ugly, folks.
