Barber Feels Like Bucs Will Win Every WeekNovember 17th, 2012
Does any Bucs fan feel like a loss is coming in Carolina on Sunday?
Joe doesn’t know one, other than Josh Freeman-basher Boomer Esiason calling a Panthers upset on CBS Radio this week. And that fact alone is evidence just how far the Bucs have come.
A year removed from a total collapse fans expect a third consecutive road win against a division rival. Even Ronde Barber says he’s a total believer.
“Here we are three weeks in a row feeling pretty good about ourselves. It’s one of those things where a team starts getting some confidence and, you know, you feel like you’re going to win every week,” Barber said on the Buccaneers Radio Network. “I don’t know if you ask everyone else that they believe that, but for me these past couple of weeks have really felt like this is the week where we’re going to just keep rolling regardless of what happens in the game. And that was the really the case [against the Chargers.]“
Joe has to imagine Barber has plenty of equally confident company in the locker room.
The Bucs don’t yet have a championship swagger about them on the field like the glory-years teams did. Maybe a great team doesn’t need one. But Joe suspects the Bucs just might start showing some of that swagger in Carolina.
