The Logjam At 2 Wins

November 17th, 2013

The streaking Buccaneers are now tied at two wins with the Falcons, Texans and Vikings. Those teams are sandwiched by the one-win Jags and the three-win Redskins. Eight teams have four victories, including December Bucs opponents, the Rams and Bills.

It’s the race for position in the 2014 draft!

Joe’s rooting for the Bucs to win out, go 8-8 and shock the world … but a top draft pick wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize.

The good news is the Texans and Jags still have two games against each other. The bad news is the Bucs’ brutal strength of schedule will work against them. That’s the top tiebreaker among teams that finish with the same record.

It’s a quarterback-heavy draft class. So even if the Bucs pass on Johnny Football roll in 2014 with Mike Glennon, there could be some extraordinary trade-down options with a premium draft pick.

    Dude, really, the Johnny Football pick would be such a waste. Give it a rest.

    2-8 is not exactly something to be proud of or laugh about Mr. Rockstar

    Not even having a .400 win percentage in 5years isn’t something you’ve earned the title “rock star” either. More of a moron thinking he can build a defense from the secondary.

  4. Paul Says:

    We started to fall apart big time again in the 2nd half and they started walking all over our defense. Didn’t look much different than the Seattle game. It was 38 to 6 at one point and they almost came back. Big plays were made by individual effort, not scheme. Fire this joker already.

  5. Tony Says:

    But the Redskins have a ‘franchise quarterback’, that’s impossible that they only have 3 wins.

  6. Chris Says:

    Paul it’s called garbage stats. Please. You’re just looking for a schiano sucks/fire schiano excuse.

    A: It’s only 2 wins

    B: Against weak teams

    C: Can you really pin a multi-year franchise future on Glennon?

    Look at the past: Shawn King comes in mid-season and makes it happen. Freeman comes in mid-season and makes it happen. Many other rookies have netered mid-season and made it happen only to fade out when the whole season rests on their shoulders. Why, the mid-season entry represents a lower pressure ERA situation. The losses aren’t theirs. They’re just coming in to stop the hemmoraging.

    We shouldn’t be sold that Glennon is the future based on 2 wins against mediocre teams. If we have the chance to draft really high,w e go for the best franchise QB option available. We could have a rockstar back-up QB regardless of the situation. Then we can trade the better one for future picks. But don’t let the opportunity of a high draft pick in a deep QB draft go by.

    6-10 would be the best case scenario. Gives the Bucs a decent pick without the pressure of a REALLY high pick. Wouldn’t want them to do something incredibly stupid like, say, draft Johnny Manziel. Though undersized college football phenom is probably the best bet. How’s RG3 working out? 3 options: DE, Linebacker, or OT is the smartest choice.
