Harsh Words For BucsSeptember 11th, 2013
As Joe has pointed out, the day after Week 1 slate of Sunday NFL games each September is what Joe refers to as “Overreaction Monday.” Fans of losing teams pull their hair out.
But the way the Bucs played so sloppy agasint the Jets, Bucs fans have never been this crazed this early in the season. Seriously, Joe knows a respected TV producer locally, a sane, reasoned man, who now believes the Bucs could start the season 0-7.
That’s how wild fans are right now, up in arms. Still, the hardhest critique Joe has read or heard came from respected NFL scribe Mike Freeman, who now types for Bleacher Report. Freeman, who made his bones as a beat writer for the Jags years ago and recently worked for CBS Sports, is starting to believe that no NFL team is more morbid than the Bucs.
He gave his Week One grade for the Bucs – an “F.”
I thought the Raiders were the least talented team in the NFL. It might be the Buccaneers. They are disgustingly bad, and I think it’s only a matter of time before there is a revolt in that locker room against the head coach.
Wow! Least talented in the NFL? Consider the Bucs have the likes of Doug Martin, Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Darrelle Revis, Dashon Goldson, Lavonte David and Gerald McCoy on the roster.
If Freeman truly believes this, then he must believe the Bucs’ roster must really be low-rent. Jimminy Christmas!
Joe has read scores of missives ragging on the Bucs from the team’s fans, but none have come close to the damning three sentences Freeman wrote about the Bucs.
