It Seems 10 Wins Won’t Be Enough

November 24th, 2010

Generally, if a team wins 10 games, a wild card berth is pretty much a lock. That may not be the case as eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune explained in a recent version of the Bucs TBO question-and-answer feature.

Q: Do you think the Bucs have shot at making the playoffs this year?

Jarrod, Fort Polk, La.

A: In this much-publicized race for 10, it is suddenly becoming clear that 10 wins may not be good enough for a playoff berth in the NFC. To qualify, the Bucs would likely have to be one of three teams from the NFC South to get in, and three teams from the same division don’t advance to the postseason very often. Still, there’s plenty of time for the Bears and the Giants to fade. If the Bucs go 10-6, I think they’ll get in.

Joe would be absolutely chagrin if not in need of a three-day bender if the Bucs racked up 10 wins and missed the playoffs. That would simply be horrible.

The mantra of Raheem Morris was “The Race To 10.” Even at this late stage, 11 wins isn’t so crazy of a thought.

    F.Y.I, the 2008 Patriots went 11-5 and didn’t make the playoffs.

    11 wins may not be enough for us either.

    Ira is an idiot. He just said he didn’t and then did think that 10 wins will be enough in the same freaking paragraph. Way to go out on a limb Ira.

    God I hate the sports writers in this town.
