Jackson Hates Losing; Loves Team, Fans

October 13th, 2013

Bucs star wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a pair of touchdowns this afternoon. That is the highlight of the day for the Bucs.

Jackson was quite candid about the Bucs losing ways and how he is trying to keep his head up as the team circles the drain both on the field and endures the never-ending drama that circles One Buc Palace.

“There is not a lot of positive feelings right now about where we are at,” Jackson said. “Only thing I can take away from this game is that we have a young quarterback who is doing a great job. He is very impressive. He is handling the game well right now and will only get better. He stands in there with great confidence and will be a great leader.

“There are things I know we can do better.

“You almost look at it as a challenge. You embrace it. We want to be a Cinderella story. You always hear about teams that went 9-7 and got into the playoffs, 8-8. Whatever it is. All we think about is the next game. All I think about is the awesomeness of playing in this league. I love this team. I love this fan base. I will go out there for the love of the game.”

Yes, miracles can happen and Joe is proud that Jackson is hoping for such a long shot that would be unprecedented in the 21st  Century NFL.

This team has too much talent to be winless in late October.

    There were idiots last week saying Jackson was done and had lost a step. Someone said we should trade him for Kendrell Thompkins. Nice call guys.

  4. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    Nice one Hawaiian. Many posters, Joe included were all about trading VJax last week.

  5. Jim Says:

    The only reason Jackson should be traded is he deserves to have a ‘team’ around him.

    This from the guy that said Freeman was a top 5 quarterback. I appreciate his hard work, but I’m not looking to v-jax for particularly accurate assessments at this point.

    Holy Crap! Jackson, the team captain, talked to the media? Must have been drinking again.
