Bucs Flunk

Your Bucs flunked Chucky.

Your Bucs flunked Chucky.

Bucs fans aren’t the only ones who think the Pewter Pirates stunk up the joint royally this weekend. So too does Ross Tucker of SI.com. Tucker, a former NFL player, now has a regular column for SI.com. And he gives the Bucs a great big fat “F” for their performance Sunday.

Losing four in a row was bad enough, but the manner in which they lost is especially troubling. A prideful defensive unit built on veterans like Ronde Barber and Derrick Brooks came unglued over the last month of the season. Teams seemed to run at will against a Bucs squad that never recovered from a Monday Night drubbing at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. Even after that debacle, the thought of the Bucs losing three in a row, including the last two at home to San Diego and Oakland, was hard to fathom.

Joe’s only problem with Tucker’s analysis is he later plays lazy journalist and tries to blame Monte Kiffin’s departure as the reason for the tank job.

Come on Tucker, you get paid big bucks working for SI.com. Take five minutes of your time and do a little research, will ya?
