Rolling Offense

October 29th, 2020

Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians.

Offense sells tickets and defense wins championships.

That was a saying for decades in the NFL. Thankfully, we have evolved as a society and embraced the fact if you don’t score points, it’s hard to win a scoreless game.

A reason the Bucs are favored in some circles to be playing a home game in the Super Bowl come February (?) is the Bucs are scoring points.

The NFL put out a release today that offenses in the NFL have never been better, setting a record through seven weeks with 5,329 points scored, up from 5,145 points scored last year.

And given the Bucs’ history of having beyond woeful offenses, even when the team was good, the following blows Joe’s mind:

Guess who leads the NFL in scoring? That’s right. The Bucs. Tampa Bay, led by a middle-aged quarterback, has scored 222 points through seven games.

What a time to be alive!

  3. Red Skeleton Says:

    Bucs lead the NFL in point differential at 80. This means the Bucs are winning on both offense and defense!!!! Lets sell those tickets and win the Championship.

  4. LVMYBUCS Says:

    I never really cared about wining or losing it was more about how we won and lost. BUT STILL WINNING IS FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bucs will be wearing the red jersey’s for the first time this season. About Damn Time, lol

  6. Casual Observer Says:

    Don’t want to get too carried away. The Raiders were in the game until the 4th. quarter. But the Bucs do seem to get better as the game progresses. A good trait.

    Been wearing my 99 jersey out of the house a lot more….

    Let’s keep rolling!

    Warren Sapp only wanted the offense to score 17 a game (which would be 119 through 7 games, a little more than half of the current rate.)

    I would caution Buc fans about getting too giddy about the 5-2 record: I still smart from Sam Wyche’s famous “Five-Dash-Two” proclamations in 1995. That team ended the season 7-9, set the NFL record for fewest TD passes in a 16-game season (5), and Wyche got the apple and roadmap.

    So far the Bucs have only had two major injuries. Other teams have not been so lucky.

    What a time to be alive indeed. And we old dudes are getting double pleasure watching an old dude put it on the opposition…made even more delightful for we old people when someone writes us off.

    I’ve never been a Brady fan until he came to the Bucs. He always seemed a little smug to me.

    I’m over it. Anybody written off this season for being old and over the hill…in fact many were making these statements based on last year when he didn’t have the Oline and NO receivers….has a right to be smug! Put that in your pipe and smoke it says Tom. Alas he puts the boring stuff in his pipe but he has done an incredible job of preserving his body and honing his skills.

    Brady not just setting historic precedence as the GOAT with six rings…he is clearly a trailblazer when it comes to using scientific training and diet combined with talent and an obsessive will to win that keeps his STILL focused after all these years.

    TB12 can be smug. He’s earned it.

    It does feel pretty awesome. Let’s hope they keep rolling on both sides of the ball!

  12. Cannon Says:

    The Bucs may not have the best record at 5-2, but the way they have won each game has been very, very convincing. We aren’t just squeaking by opponents… we’re absolutely crushing them.

    Green Bay and Las Vegas are two of the stronger teams in the NFL (particularly Green Bay). Our Bucs made them look silly.

    The Rays could learn from that saying. Had they scored 3 runs more per game they woulda won the series. Guess that’s what happens when you have no fans in the stands and you can’t afford top tier hitters and are forced to have a roster full of sub par hitters who strike out more than a than they hit. That’s why I like the NFL and it’s parity with the salary cap. The Bucs could afford some of the best players out there and now that all those pieces are starting to gel, these boys are becoming the Chiefs of the NFC! Last year in spite of the excellent offensive outputs none of us thought we were even 3 or 4 pieces away from having a championship caliber team, but look at us now. Now as long as they don’t start feeling themselves and stay focused and stay the course we can see that trophy coming home.

    Just our lousy luck in Tampa, the Lightning win the Stanley Cup, the Rays make the World Series, the Bucs score the most points… and nobody gets to see it.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if the Bucs are the first team ever to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium, only to have no fans there. Tampa Bay Luck.

  15. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    The offense is scoring just over 31 pts per game, they keep it up Bucs will score over 500 pts. W W W O W W W ! ! ! ! ! That would be amazing!!!

  16. JimmyJack Says:

    I love Scotty Miller. Look back at some of them catches he made and it unreal. He makes amazing plays on the ball. I almost wonder if he can keep it up……..Scotty needs to get better and stronger fighting off coverage. Hes gotten manhandled several times. Hes benifited from a few calls but when those go away hes gotta find a way to evade physical defenders.

    The best thing i love about Scotty right now is his eye for the sticks. He has a natural ability to find the 1st down and find a way to get it. He plays very tough as a posession guy. I love it!!

    GO BUCS WOO!!!!

    @Sesteprenelicus – nothing stopping the fans from surrounding the statium and cheering from the outside. Not ideal but would be cool to see!

    As Jameis said, “I can ball”.
