The Pain In Joe’s StomachSeptember 15th, 2013
Joe realizes many readers here lose sight of the fact that Joe is a crazed Bucs fan.
Joe’s actually loved the Bucs for decades. Joe even almost got fired in 2007 for leaving his former office early (consequences be damned) to see the Bucs lose to the Giants in the playoffs in 2007. That’s how much Joe loves the Bucs.
Joe’s mentioning this now because Joe is really having a hard time stomaching the Bucs’ first two losses of this season. They didn’t have to happen. They’re making Joe ill. It sucks to be a fan of a team that repeatedly kicks itself in the balls. Joe wants to shut down this site for a day and drink mass quantities of beer. (Don’t worry. That won’t happen.)
It’s one thing if a team lacking talent is sloppy and foolish, but it’s another thing when it’s a Bucs team like this one — one with a load of talent on both sides of the football.
Rockstar general manager Mark Dominik did a strong job stocking Greg Schiano’s cupboard this season. But the coach isn’t cooking up much worth eating. Sure, some of Schiano’s recipe looks great, but ultimately the stew is sour to the taste.
This is a damn rough night to be a Bucs fan. Joe feels for the Bucs faithful.
