Bucs On Cusp Of Historic Collapse

December 22nd, 2008

Just like Antonio Bryant's critical fumble against the Chargers, the Bucs are watching their playoff hopes slip away.

How bad was yesterday’s loss? Well, consider the Bucs are about to make history as pointed out by eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.

And it’s not the type of history a team wants to make.

Since the NFL realigned into eight four-team divisions in 2002, all 36 of the clubs that opened at 8-3 or better went on to earn a playoff berth.

But since starting 9-3, Tampa Bay has dropped three consecutive games and now the Bucs need a win Sunday, plus some brotherly love from Philadelphia, to secure the NFC’s final postseason seed.

As Joe wrote early (very early) this morning, Bucs fans now must become Eagles fans for a day, if the Bucs are to make the playoffs.

Please, someone pass Joe the Pepto Bismol.
