Bucs = Brutal

September 28th, 2009

The disgust in Joe Henderson’s fingertips comes bouncing off of the computer screen. The Tampa Tribune columnist can no longer remain silent.

The Bucs, Henderson writes in so many words, are a horrid team.

After three quarters, just before head coach Raheem Morris pulled ineffective quarterback Byron Leftwich and replaced him with “career backup” Josh Johnson, the Giants had 326 yards in total offense to 35 for the Bucs. New York had 21 first downs to Tampa Bay’s 1.

The Bucs have played badly before but I honestly can’t recall a game where they looked completely helpless like they did in this one. The Giants simply lined up and ran over them, five and six yards at a time. There was never a sense, even at the start, that the Bucs had a chance.

Reading the column thoroughly, Joe was particularly impressed with Henderson’s tasteful use of the phrase, “seal-clubbed.”

    This debacle may be the worst loss in Buc history. I cannot recall a worse game in the 30+ years I’ve been watching Buc Football.

    You are obviously talking shit, T-bone…I have seen the bucs do this before…Something better change, I didn’t expect the to be 3-0, but I want to see something that indicates they are going in the right direction…

    Tampa got “buc-clubbed”. Seals are soft, helpess, and cute.

    Well now that I think of it the Bucs are soft on defense as well. Yesterday the Bucs looked helpless and …nah there was nothing cute about yesterday’s loss.

    Well 2 out of 3. Better numbers than Bryon “flat footed” Leftwich put up.

    Jon, sorry man, you are coach of the decade. If you had a good talent evaluator and would have listened to him you would still be here (and this team would have had a chance)
