“They’re A Team That I’m Sure Is Going To Be Playing In January”

September 29th, 2020

Now this Bucs endorsement comes from a very credible, no-blowhard guy who is very intimate with the Buccaneers.

Who would know Tampa Bay better than the guy who just studied them for a week, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio? The 62-year-old defensive guru guides the winless team that was beaten down at home by three scores Sunday against the Bucs.

Fangio hopped on SiriusXM NFL Radio yesterday for his weekly spot and sounded like a beaten man. Without being asked, he talked about the Bucs with great reverence.

“They’re a team I’m sure is going to be playing in January,” Fangio said.

Again, Joe listens to Fangio weekly and he’s not the kind of guy who throws that kind of love out there freely. So Joe was impressed by Fangio going there in September. And of course, Fangio knows how good his Broncos might have been if they weren’t ravaged by injuries to their best players.

NFL Radio host and former NFL safety Solomon Wilcots is in the same boat as Fangio. Wilcots was ranting about the Bucs being good and it’s obvious that they’re nowhere near as good as they will be later this season.

Enjoy the love, Bucs fans.

    I gotta admit, I almost felt sorry for the Bronco’s offense. Our blitz package was just annihilating them. On almost any single play, there were 1 or more guys breaking free.

    We haven’t done anything yet. Beat the Chargers and we can say we won the first quarter of the season. Other then that, .500 ball don’t mean squat.

    Win or Lose – The 24 hour rule is back in play a OBP.

    Now comes the true challenge. Continued improvement and peaking win the games are more competitive.

    I’m with you WhoCares:

    Gruden would break up the season in Quarters.
    If the Bucs win on Sunday they won the first quarter of the season otherwise the first quarter was a failure.

    Let’s not forget, Fango just lost his 3rd game in a row, so saying we are a playoff team makes him look a little better.
    That said, I think we are a playoff team, but we still have room for improvement.

    I’m soaking up all of this positive and success after Over 12-13 years of misery!!!

    “Vic Fangio is top 5 defensive minds in the NFL

    He knows what a playoff defense looks like

    he also knows BA/BL twins will be the downfall and reason we cant come out of the NFC

    Realty bites. We beat two of the lowest ranked teams. We lost to the one pretty darn good team we have played so far. Packers coming up in a few weeks will be a huge test. So will the Ciefs later on. In between will be teams that are notably week, and others that are relatively equal to us. The key will be to beat those teams that look much weaker and split with those that are relatively equal. Of the last 6 games only the Chiefs and Rams have strong teams. That means if we can get 6 or 7 wins in our first 10 games, we should have an excellent shot at the playoffs.. The Packers and Saints are likely the best two teams out of the next 7 we play. Win the other 5 games we would be at 7/3 with only the Chiefs highly favored. and Rams about even. The other 4 games are the Vikings, Lions and 2 games with the Falcons. On paper if the Bucs stay healthy they should be playoff contenders. Losses to the Packers and Cihiefs are probable. We should be favored orr even with the rest. Our defense is quite capable of keeping us competitive against all but the Packers, Chiefs and maybe the Rams or Saints. If the offense keeps improving we make the playoffs. IF the offense does not keep improving we will be a n early round playoff team at best. But if the offense keeps improving look out! The running game is the weak link in my opinion. But 10/6 is doable with better offensive play.

    Its all about staying healthy. The defense is solid and has some depth. But the offensive is another story. This team definitely could be playing in January if Godwin and Brady stay healthy.

  19. Leighroy Says:

    This astute “top 5 defensive mind” must also be sure when on the calendar week 17 falls this season?

  20. Karma Says:

    We are beating the teams that we should be beating…a huge step up from the years past.

    I am looking forward to playing the Aints and cheese heads and Mahomie to guage how good we are and how far from greatness.

    Go Bucs!
