Maybe Good Enough For A Ticket

November 14th, 2010

Veteran columnist Gary Shelton talks about how the Bucs are winning ugly but the offense is starting to gel well enough that maybe the Bucs are good enough to “buy a ticket” in this St. Petersburg Times video.

    Who even cares anymore? Im too busy watching the Bucs win football games to give a snit if anyone buys tickets. The NFL can’t screw me out of seeing my team on Sunday.

    If this team starts winning , I’m not sure what it will do for ticket sells , but I DO know that it will cause hell well to freeze over, and pigs to grow wings….

    Anyone else feel a chill?

    Yep, that’s about right.

    Steelers, at Bengals, at Ravens, at Cardinals, at 49ers, and the NFC South which includes the Super Bowl Champs?

    Not an easy schedule.

    I thhink we are pretty comparable to the 2008 lions. They came off seven wins and all puffed up and went 0-16.

    SO, 2-14 sounded right? We’ve won games against some teams on the “not so easy schedule”. I think at 6-3, they can get a bit “puffed up”, coz these guys seem pretty focused week to week on one game at a time.

    Sorry, but I just have to laugh at what some were saying in preseason. I understand “reality” and “prove it on the field”, but sometimes you have to see “potential” and “progress” and understand “patience”.

    If this is winning ugly I can’t wait to see how exciting its going to be when they are winning “pretty” games.

    Remember back in the Dungy/Shula/Steckel/Christianson days? Those were some ugly wins. That defense was exciting to watch but the putrid offense made for some boring and truly ugly games. I was happy about it then and I’m happy about it now. A win is a win. 6 dash 3.

    I heard “the commish” comment on attendance last night. Stating that someone has to be held accountable for the lack of a crowd. The Glazers will have to make moves in the organization if the attendance doesn’t improve. He insinuated Raheem’s job was on the line if it stayed like this. Isn’t it our own fans fault for not being able to see whats going on with this team and getting excited about it? I understand the lack of TV. But real football fans find a way to either see the game or get excited about the team through other avenues. I don’t understand how a big name coach would magically put money in the peoples pockets and fill the place. It seems ridiculous to say that we would rather see a big name coach than Raheem and his constantly improving, young team. Raheem needs an extension.

    I agree, Rah is doing a great job. If someone told me this is where we would be in the preseason, I would have had tears of joy. But now we are 6-3, I’m getting greedy and want something more than progress. But it feels satisfying that I have the option to be greedy.

    BamBam, thanks for that. Keep posting the quotes of those morons.

    And BTW… remember that talk of K2 being washed up? What happened to all that? I predicted he would get his TD yesterday and show us he is still a beast, which he did.

    I was at the game, and attendance is growing. I used to think it was our piss poor fan base, but I think Joe is right about the Tampa bay economy being the real reason. Most fans do not care who the coach is, at least not when the team is winning.
