Redemption Sunday AwaitsSeptember 9th, 2013
The sun had yet to rise over Tampa Bay when Joe typed this, but Joe already can hear the sports radio meltdown underway. Last night, postgame call-in tirades were seemingly orchestrated by the Mike Glennon Mob, but the daggers this morning are coming after Greg Schiano for the Bucs’ sloppiness and uninspired offense.
Yes, the loss to the Jets was one of the most heinous in team history. No question. However, if the Bucs beat the Saints at home Sunday, then the Bucs — literally — will sit alone atop the NFC South if you factor in tiebreaker considerations. The Falcons lost in New Orleans yesterday, and the Panthers in Seattle. And Atlanta and Carolina don’t play each other next week.
So there you have it. Keep calm. Keep perspective. Don’t let angst destroy your Monday.
A win on Sunday and the Bucs get complete redemption and Bucs fans will celebrate a division leader.
