Revis Thinks The Bucs Are CuredDecember 8th, 2013
Oh, these Bucs had demons and monsters living under their beds.
Winning was light years away six weeks ago. Hell, the Bucs seemed to be professional losers, but it all changed fast.
Darrelle Revis thinks the answer is simple.
“I remember when we were in the slump of losing, I was just saying, ‘One win cures everything.’ And once we got our first win, I think this team really got used to, ‘Hey, hey, we know how to win now,’” Revis said today. “So I feel like it was that kind of thing. And we just kept on rolling; we got three in a row, we actually lost one last week and we won this one. You know once you get on a winning streak, that momentum can go for a while.”
Joe’s heard the same kind of stuff from various Bucs leaders.
Dashon Goldson said today the gelling just took a little too long.
“We just got tighter as a team,’ Goldson said. “We started to understand what we had to do. We started to zero in and focus more on our assignments and playing as a team. That was one of the things we stressed out of training camp that we had to play together and understand what we’re doing on defense. Guys started to zero in and lock in on what’s important.”
Now Joe will believe the Bucs are cured of their bad streaks under the New Schiano Order as long as the team doesn’t reel off three losses in a row to ring in the new year.
That just can’t happen.
