Bucs Loss Nearly A Historic Fail

September 28th, 2009

It would have been fitting had the Bucs broke out the orange jerseys yesterday.

Josh Johnson saved the Bucs.

No, he didn’t lead the Bucs to a win.

No, he didn’t score a touchdown.

But Johnson’s drive to tease Bucs fans with a score late in the game kept the Bucs from perhaps their worst offensive game in team history, so reports Vacation Man of BSPN.com.

The Bucs finished with 86 yards of offense and Johnson’s one drive left him as the leading passer (36 yards) and leading rusher (15 yards). The only times the Bucs had less offense was in a blizzard at Green Bay when they had 65 yards on Dec. 1, 1985 and when they piled up 78 yards against the Falcons on Nov. 27, 1977 to run the franchise record to 0-25.

Kind of ironic that the Bucs are bringing out their throwback uniforms later this season. They’re already playing like the Bucs of old.

That’s a frightening concept. Joe tried not to chuckle yesterday that for all of Raheem the Dream’s boasting that he would use the brutal Florida heat as an ally and have teams wilt under its sun, actually backfired so terribly the opposite occurred.

    Hold on a sec.

    Let’s not taint the return of Buccaneer Bruce with the idiotic leadership in charge of the Bucs right now.

    I don’t want to hear the baloney, “Oh, if they hadn’t brought back the throwbacks, we would have done fine.”

    Yeah, right. Nothing can help these clowns. Let’s not blame anything on wardrobe.

    Attention Glazers
    My wife and I have been season ticket holders since the inception in 1976. Unless
    you do something to substantially improve this team between now and the next renewal period there will be two more empty seats.
    If you have any conscience you will start cleaning up this mess now and the first step is to issue a credit applicable to next years ticket purchase for failing to deliver a reasonable product in 2009. As a long standing ticket holder, I have endured many woeful performances, yet we held on as there was a hint of better days to come. This regression is enough to make me puke!
