Non-believers No More

January 28th, 2021

Joe is so loving this Bucs’ seven-game winning streak, a team record.

Every day feels like a party in the media with so many people connected to the team talking to the media.

Bucco Bruce Arians explained on national radio that the Bucs didn’t always expect to win prior to this season. It’s a condition known as a loser mentality. Joe would think about that more, but it’s too sobering and sad.

Safety Andrew Adams, who joined the Bucs in 2018, backed up Arians’ take during his recent visit to CBS Sports Radio.

“The key changes have been the confidence level,” Adams said.

“I just felt like each year the team’s confidence level has gone up and this year we’re very confident. We take the field, not with the sense of arrogance, but just with a sense of confidence that we’re going to win the game and everybody is believing in each other and believing in themselves, which I think goes a long way.”

Adams went on to say that when the Bucs struggled and fell to 7-5 this season, “nothing wavered” in the team’s preparation other than a greater focus on fast starts. “We didn’t strain or put any extra emphasis on one thing or another,” he said.

The Bucs lost since.

It is always said that teams must “learn how to win.” In the Bucs’ case, they were like a bunch of smart third graders struggling to read in a failing public school. Now Teacher of the Year Tom Brady has arrived, and it’s all good.

“He gets guys fired up,” Adams said of Brady.

Now the Bucs just have to take their winning mindset and execution into one more game. Then history will place them among the great winners of all-time.

    Covid exposure is my biggest concern. Got to be super careful these last few days before the super game. I think Bruce will have the team ready in all aspects. Should be fun!

    I’m pretty sure that you meant to say the Bucs haven’t lost since” Joe

    SB, don’t be too hard on Joe. We know what he meant. Joe is a kid in the Candy store. This is JBF history because never at this time has he been able to write about anything other than, draft, free agency or what if. Nope, his first time writing on JBF this late and his team is still playing. The saying I’ve been following all season is “Never Bet Against Tom Brady”.

    This two week break between games gives the media jabber jaws an extra week to get this team the exposure that eluded them in Super Bowl XXXVII.
    Maybe it’s me, but the one week break ( it’s happened only seven times) seemed like a rush-rush affair.

    @Casual Observer -You didn’t hear, COVID is no longer a thing since JoBamah took office. Look at how NY and Cali suddenly are no longer in lockdown. Hmmmmmmm. 100% dont have to worry about it anymore. Not that we ever did in the first place. Just saying.
