Bucs No. 31October 16th, 2013
The Custodian of Canton, eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune, has seen the Bucs up close and personal this season more often than Joe and apparently is appalled by the state of the franchise in 2013.
How much have the Bucs turned eye-RAH!’s stomach? In his recent NFL power rankings, Kaufman has the Bucs below every team in the NFL save for the moribund Jags.
31. Tampa Bay Can the Bucs stay focused amid all the carnage?
Carnage? The carnage has yet come to One Buc Palace. If the losing continues, then one has to think Team Glazer will get involved. At that point, folks, you will see carnage.
At that point, there won’t just be carnage, but upheaval.
To paraphrase Kaufman in a recent radio interview, Joe is here to tell you that the Bucs are nowhere near as miserable as the Jags. Ten days ago Joe saw the Jags with his own eyes in person, sober no less (Joe got roped into driving by his friends back in the Land of the Corn). The Jags are woeful beyond words. Each time Blaine Gabbert takes a snap from center, he wets himself.
In fact, John Madden last week, in his weekly appearance with the one and only Chris “Mad Dog” Russo on SiriusXM, said he coached against the winless 1976 Bucs and the current Jags team, which he watched earlier this season in Oakland, is “on par” with the 1976 Bucs and he laughed in amazement how any front office type actually tried to put together the motley crew known as the Jags.
So if the Bucs have much better talent, and yet are believed to be as bad as the Jags, it is clear evidence Tampa Bay is not being properly coached up.
