Revis Says Bucs Know How Good They AreOctober 9th, 2013
The men practicing football over at One Buc Palace are not Jaguars. The Bucs are losing but they’re not having the spirit beaten out of them and they’re no laughingstock, says Darrelle Revis.
The Bucs’ $1 million-per-game cornerback says the Bucs know how close they are to being 3-1, so that’s what’s got the attitude right in the Bucs’ locker room.
“We could have been 3-1, you know,” Revis said. “We really felt that [only] New England really legitimately beat us. I mean, I think that’s the thing you can pull out of the whole situation is, and I think that’s what makes guys positive and keeps them rolling and not sink and fall into the trap of saying, ‘Oh, we’re 0-4.’ … We’ll be fine. We’ll win some games. We’ll rack some up. We’re not getting outclassed. We’re not getting outcoached. You guys see the games; they come down to a couple of plays, man, one or two plays.”
Joe gets what Revis is saying; Bucs players know how close they are. Just like Falcons players know how close they are to playing winning football.
Unfortunately, close doesn’t count.
