Do You Believe In The Bucs?

October 14th, 2010

NFL Network

The NFL Network’s Total Access gang of Rich Eisen, Daryl Johnston and Rod Woodson discuss if the Bucs are for real or not in this NFL Network video.

Johnson seems to be a bit skeptical. Woodson isn’t exactly drinking the Kool-Aid yet but he’s intrigued. He believes the Bucs “statement game” is fast approaching.

Watch the video and let Joe know your thoughts on the trio’s observations.

    Well if beating the Saints this year makes a statement then what statement did the Bucs make last year when they beat the Saints? Lol

    It is nice for us Bucs fan to see our team at 3-1……… At least until you break it down and realize that their 3 wins are over teams that are gimped up and struggling great this season…… Those teams did about as much to lose as the Bucs did to win and they did barely at that though their opponent struggled!

    I remain highly skepticle until the Bucs win over a healthy and winning opponent…. A win over the Saints would be great but their again even they are without their 2 main RB and some Defensive starters and struggling compared to last year….. If taking advantage of teams being down gets the Bucs a win then good…… At least they are not continually exposed and embarrassed like they were in the Steelers game!!!

    They may not have won their games convincingly or in style but whether they win any more or not they have 3 and that is better than none like last year at this time!!!

    Bucs are doing great and I hope it continues, but the sad truth is that there is probably trouble on the horizon. The Bucs secondary has created a lot fo turnovers with no pass rush. That equals bad QB play by our opponents. Not going to stay that way for ever. I think the Bucs are last in the league in run defense. That got them 3 wins last year. They were joined at the bottom of the run defense list byt the Chiefs and the Bills. Not good company. Unless something changes quick, the Bucs are going to struggle in the future.

    Oh . . and the Bucs have been relatively injury free so far.

    Jeez you guys almost sound upset that we’re beating the teams we CAN beat but still might be too young to beat the elite teams. Heaven for bid we ride that out this year to 8 or dare i say 10 wins bc of our schedule.

    Listen, the saints this week are another one of those teams, we cant stop the run to save our lives but they cant run it ether. Their RB’s this week are Ladell Betts and Julius Jones who were good like what 4 years ago?

    If we can contain brees and put some points up we have another real shot at a win this week. Not saying we will, but quit being a bunch of freaking curmudgeons .

    Jeez, this young team gets better with every Victory. This isn’t the past, with a bunch of old guys trying to hold on! Quit worrying about the Stats. We are playing to our strength- shutting the passing game down. We are playing both safeties and Geno Hayes full time in pass defense. That is gonna hurt yer run defense. It’s also gonna winn Football games!!! I’ll take 10-6, with a low ranked run D, over 3- 13, with the number one ranked Offense and Defense in the league! Raheem says it best- statistics are for LOSERS! Have faith, he’s proven that he knows what he’s doing! It’s stupid to talk about easy wins! There aren’t any in the NFL. Quit worrying and enjoy our 3-1 Buccaneers- if they beat the Saints, we start talking Playoffs next week!

    I heard an interesting comment on NFL Live on ESPN tonight. They were talking about the Vikings/Cowboys game and how it’s really a must win for both. The thing that was said was “Which one of these coaches has the players behind them? Which one has the players believing in them?”. That got me thinking, because every player on the Bucs seems to back up the coach, seems to believe in him. Cody Grimm gave Morris the credit for the Pick 6. They all believe in him, they are behind him. Is this the reason for the 3-1 record? If so, how much more can they get out of that? We all know the mistakes that were made by the coach and GM last year, but if they still have the locker room, how far can this team go? Is Morris a good coach more because of his ability to motivate his guys than his ability to speak at a press conference? Just a comment that got me thinking, guess we’ll see where it goes as the season plays out.
