Grim News For Bucs FansSeptember 16th, 2013
As Joe pointed out earlier, when an NFL team starts out at 0-2, there is just a 12 percent chance of said team making the playoffs.
Joe asks that you brace yourselves for the following piece of information from unofficial Bucs historian Joey Johnston of the Tampa Tribune. Based on Bucs history, the Bucs playoff chances in 2013 are already toast.
@JJohnstonTBO: For 16th time, #TBBucs have started 0-2. Made playoffs only once with that start, but that was 1982 strike shortened season (5-4).
Wake Joe up if you must, but this isn’t a strike-shortened season.
So it seems the season is already over and the only thing left to figure out is where the Bucs draft? Man. Joe just wants to crawl into a fetal position and nurse a bottle of Bushmills the rest of the day and into the night.
Joe cannot tell you how depressing this news is. It’s Sept. 16 and, if history is a barometer, the season of hope is dashed. And Joe has a history degree.
Welp, Joe will let the cat out of the bag. Before last spring’s draft, Joe was having a beer with WTSP-TV, Channel 10 executive producer Matt Sinn and told Matt that Joe would lay a little cash Schiano would draft Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron in 2014, who would be a perfect Schiano-like, manage-the-game quarterback, schooled by Nick Saban on discipline.
