“Less Glamorous” Bucs Will Be Tough

October 21st, 2011

Joe’s been surfing the daily rags in England of late hoping to get some tidbits on the Bucs but about the only thing Joe learned is that the sites are littered with kickball coverage.


But today Joe found a nugget in the London Sun, in which a bloke by the name Mark Wood — reporting from Chicago no less! — interviewed former Bears coach Mike Ditka who seems to like the Bucs despite the fact the Bucs, in Woods’ words, are “less glamorous.”

“I like Tampa Bay. They’re kind of old-fashioned — they don’t score a lot but they don’t give up a lot of points either.

“They got a good young quarterback, they got a great young running back, they got some good receivers.

“It’s an interesting team. The other day they won methodically — it wasn’t anything beautiful just boom boom boom and they did what they had to to win. It will be a tough game for the Bears.”

Joe figured tone of the Brits would be about pop and sizzle of the game between the Bucs and Bears and far less to do with football.

Rubbish indeed!

    ^Came in to say what SensibleBuc said…I LOLd, and can’t decide if you meant to do that. Some of this has been so glaringly ragey, it almost HAS to be a put on.

    Also, reading you post the word ‘bloke’ is almost as funny as reading Raheem’s reference to the ‘pitch’ conditions at Wembley, yesterday.

    Hopefully this American football match won’t turn out to be a big bag of wank. Look for the Bucs to kick seven shades of sh-t outta the Bears. Wankers!

    The only reason were not glamorous is because Olson continues to hold this offense down. I believe it has a tons more to offer and we should be scoring 30 points a game. The fact he didn’t use Blount more and he should be going to Benn alot more than what he does. In addition K2 should be featured more. I have to think Raheem would growing tired of close games every week. The Saints game should not have been close but Olson got conservative (which is why we start slow) after we got the lead. Freeman will be a superstar only when Olson decides to quit handcuffing this offense. This is just one fans opinion.
