Bucs = B+

December 23rd, 2009

Joe was as happy as the next Bucs fan with the solid win Sunday — until he realized Nebraska defensive tackle/manbeast Ndamukong Suh was likely gone.

It seems some people were positively giddy over the Bucs win, like Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com. who graded the performance of the Bucs Sunday with a B+.

The Tampa Bay defense looked like the Tampa Bay defense again. That unit had three second-half interceptions to lead the Bucs. Josh Freeman was steady and threw a touchdown pass.

Joe believes people need to start checking themselves. Sure the win was nice and the Bucs have showed improvement. But this was the Seahawks the Bucs just beat for crying out loud.

Remember one of the turnovers came as a result of one of the biggest bonehead plays Joe has ever seen: Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck falling down, pitching the ball to no one in particular deep in Bucs territory.

    Seattle quit in the second half. The win was not fun.

    Thanks for injecting a bit of reality in the win Joe. I didn’t think it was possible, but the Bucs played a team in more disarray and more uninspired than any team I’ve seen in a while. We need to realize that we typically won’t get a teams best effort (ala GB), but Seattle’s was beyond horrible.

    with all do respect joe as i love ur website and frequent it daily. The Bucs arent the bucs of old but had we loss that game dis site would have been talkin all kinds of shit about how the bucs couldnt beat Seattle. Its like no matter what they do its still not enough. Dont get me wrong im as pissedoff as the next man about how the season has turned out but cum’on man they won. why are we talkin about the negative along with the positive why not wait til they lose to talk da negative but we won. So in short we won the game so lets enjoy the win reguardless of who it came against because had we loss we would be another laughin stalk.
