Believe It!

December 11th, 2016

big-stickIt’s time to believe.

It is one thing for the Bucs, in the words of the great Warren Sapp, to “choke out” bratty Jay Cutler, a dangerous quarterback but with the mentality of a tired cocker spaniel.

It’s one thing for the Bucs to choke out Russell Wilson. A gifted quarterback who doesn’t yet have the long resumé of some of the best whoever played. Good, excellent, yes. Great? Get back to Joe in six or seven years.

It’s one thing to choke out Philip Rivers, a talented, dangerous quarterback, though he may be a tad overrated.

Then comes Drew Brees. The future Hall of Famer is one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever take a snap. He’s a first ballot kind of guy. There are few better than Brees, no matter what era of the NFL.

For the Bucs to choke out all four of those quarterbacks in succession is some sick, sick, sick defense.

Both you and Joe were sweating, face it. It was the two-minute warning. Brees had the ball and only needed a touchdown to win. He’s done this countless times before. On the same field in fact. Brees has scored so many times in the final minutes, it’s like Wilt Chamberlain walking into a packed Los Angeles disco.

Yet the Bucs choked the great Drew Brees out. No touchdown passes. The Bucs have never done that to Brees before.

Joe thought sure the Bucs were going to lose. The offense was stuck in the mud. Sooner or later, you give Brees enough time – BOOM!

Only thing was, the boom was lowered by the Bucs defense.

It’s time to start believing folks. You don’t choke out the likes of Cutler, Wilson, Rivers and Brees in unless you’ve got something working and working quite well.

One game is a fluke. Two games is a trend. Three games is a pattern. Four games is a friggin’ statement!

Carry that big mother@#$ing stick!!!

    Sorry but I think Conte lost his job to Tandy.. he always seems to be in the right place at the right time when he’s been tagged. He may not have the size speed combo the coaches and scouts crave. But he has “It” above the shoulders.

  11. Shane Says:

  12. Warthog Says:

    Man Tandy gonna make me lay down the cash for a 37 jersey huh?!? Chris Who-te?

  13. Warthog Says:

    Watch out QBs – they call him Keith the Thief!

  14. OneBuc55 Says:

    Koetter took full responsibility during the post game press conference “the offensive play caller needs to do a better job”…The Saints put up a hellava fight as always…the difference is this team finds ways to win, instead of finding ways toe lose…Let’s Go Bucs…Beat Dallas

  15. SoDakBucsFan Says:

    I thought the same thing here we go again Brees is going to throw it down our throats but the defense came up big today. Luv it. Hope Tandy keeps the starter spot he deserves it. Go BUCS!!

  16. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    The sign of a good team is no matter how it struggles still finds ways to win. The Bucs have now become a good team.

  17. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Btw some of you guys shouldn’t wear those shirts. Gonna get you in trouble with the ladies! Lol!

  18. Mike Johnson Says:

    I..will not become a believer unless we can beat the COWBOYS. If we beat the Cowboys I will say on this website..We are a playoff team! I’ve seen this team disappoint before. I’ll remain..Cautiously Optimistc for now.

  19. Buc1987 Says:

  21. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    BigHog, there is still time to hop in the Titans train. 6-20, 88 yards ring a bell? HA!

  22. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Any word on who is going to replace Mike Smith as defensive coordinator? That dude is as good as a NFL Head Coach next year.

  23. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Worst defense in NFL to best. That doesnt happen just because you add ayers grimes and hargreaves, lovie = one of the worst coaches we ever had
