“That’s A Decent Football Team”

November 12th, 2020

Sunday’s opponent, the Panthers, are an unpredictable bunch.

They lost their superstar during Week 2 and proceeded to win three in a row without him before losing four in a row.

That’s rare in any NFL season.

The superstar is running back Christian McCaffrey, and he returned last week but it didn’t push the Panthers into the “W” column. And now McCaffrey is out. (Thank you, football gods!)

So how good or bad are the Panthers at 3-6? It’s an interesting question and one former NFL QB and current SiriusXM NFL Radio host Brady Quinn took on this week.

“[The Panthers] are kind of into that Bengals and Chargers category, where that’s a team that’s been really competitive this year. I don’t know that they’re necessarily that much better than their record, but that’s a decent football team,” Quinn said.

For those wondering, the Bengals and Chargers each have two wins while Carolina has three. Of course, the Bengals and Chargers have rookie quarterbacks while the Panthers have a veteran and former Pro Bowler in Teddy Bridgewater. They’re all bad teams still figuring out what really matters in the NFL, which is winning.

If the Bucs are anything close to what Joe hopes they are, they must beat the Panthers on Sunday. There’s no other way to say it. If the Bucs fall to 6-4 with three division losses, well, then they’re probably a year away from realistic Super Bowl dreams and possibly on their way to a season that will disappoint much of the fan base.

Go fight like hell and win it, Bucs!

    I see this game as a MUST win for us. It will not be an easy win, even with McCaffery out.
    Carolina played the Chiefs within an inch of their lives, and are really starting to Gel as a team.

    We need to have Todd Bowles turn the defense loose….play man, play aggressive, blitz, blitz…..linebackers & safeties….

    As for the offense….run, run, run & play action….

    Totally agree! Don’t want a white knuckle win, even though we’ll take it. However, I’d much prefer a dominant performance to show everyone, including myself, that last Sunday night was just a fluke. Perhaps they all took sedatives before the game to calm them down. I don’t know, just please don’t do it again.

    @Evolvinbucfan….. I’m with you right there..the whole team (to include the HC/OC/DC) must just f@cking show that they know what they’re doing…..for Christ sake!!!

    BA shouldve said that last sunday…

    panthers actually play better and harder when Mccaffrey is hurt. Bucs need to win by 1 or 40. Just win guys.

    Teddy Bridgewater is underrated especially here at JBF. He was a winning QB at Minnesota…a winning QB at NO…and if Carolina gives him time to throw the ball he’ll carve us up like any competent professional NFL QB.

    I just hope our pass rush shows up big time.
