Jackson Hates Losing; Loves Team, FansOctober 13th, 2013
Bucs star wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a pair of touchdowns this afternoon. That is the highlight of the day for the Bucs.
Jackson was quite candid about the Bucs losing ways and how he is trying to keep his head up as the team circles the drain both on the field and endures the never-ending drama that circles One Buc Palace.
“There is not a lot of positive feelings right now about where we are at,” Jackson said. “Only thing I can take away from this game is that we have a young quarterback who is doing a great job. He is very impressive. He is handling the game well right now and will only get better. He stands in there with great confidence and will be a great leader.
“There are things I know we can do better.
“You almost look at it as a challenge. You embrace it. We want to be a Cinderella story. You always hear about teams that went 9-7 and got into the playoffs, 8-8. Whatever it is. All we think about is the next game. All I think about is the awesomeness of playing in this league. I love this team. I love this fan base. I will go out there for the love of the game.”
Yes, miracles can happen and Joe is proud that Jackson is hoping for such a long shot that would be unprecedented in the 21st Century NFL.
This team has too much talent to be winless in late October.
