Next Three Opponents Are A Combined 4-10October 8th, 2013
If the Bucs can’t win two of the next four games, then Joe believes that could seal doom for the New Schiano Order.
Tampa Bay’s schedule was, on paper, brutal to open the season; those Bucs opponents are a stunning 15-5 combined.
But now the Bucs take on three NFL bottom-feeders in three consecutive weeks — home for Philadephia (2-3), at Atlanta (1-4), and back home for the Panthers (1-3), before heading to Seattle. The Bucs absolutely have to find a couple of victories. There are no excuses.
The second half of the season isn’t exactly filled with juggernauts, either, with St. Louis, Buffalo, Carolina, Miami and Atlanta on the docket.
One victory feels miles away, unfortunately, the way the Bucs’ offense has sputtered. That written, Greg Schiano needs to find a way to play .500 ball the rest of the season. That’s not too much to ask of a team that has all the winning “components” in place.
