“A Very Susceptible Position”

September 10th, 2022

A student of the NFC East and a brother of a Bucs legend sees a glorious Buccaneers win on Sunday night against the defending NFC East champion Cowboys.

Retired Giants Pro Bowl running back Tiki Barber joins his famous Bucs brother Rondé every week on a gambling show run by Vegas-based SuperBook Sports. The Barber brothers make picks and often disagree. This week, they’re in lock step for different reasons.

Rondé is very focused on the Bucs rolling because he thinks they improved in free agency and the draft, and he because the Dallas offense won’t be able to keep up with the Bucs’ 30-points-per-game machine.

He loves Cowboys game-wrecker linebacker Micah Parsons, but Rondé doesn’t think Parsons will be able to do enough wrecking to keep the Bucs’ points total down.

Joe was more interested in what Tiki had to say since Rondé has become such a Bucs homer as their preseason TV analyst.

Tiki Barber says it’s overlooked how Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is entering the season on the hot seat, and there’s a ton of pressure on the Dallas offense yet they’re down weapons. Dallas will neither handle the pressure nor the Tampa Bay run defense, Tiki believes, leaving them in “a very susceptible position” to get overwhelmed by the Bucs.

Joe agrees with Tiki on various fronts. And in a tight fourth-quarter game, Joe would pick Tom Brady over Dak Prescott, but certainly with a Dallas team under the microscope before the opening whistle.

    This is all sorts of wrong. DOSE NOT ANYONE SEE how horrible we will be because we have a rookie Right Guard.

    Please everyone. PANIC NOW, we are DOOMED!!!

    I need someone to hug me and a safe space to cry in. Maybe a comfort animal or two or 5.

    I mean for real guys, we have a rookie RG that no one on the planet has ever seen play and our coaches have no idea what they are doing/seeing.

    COME ON PEOPLE, we will be lucky to win 1 game. Much less a game against the best team of all time, AMERICAS Team

  2. CrackWise Says:

    Yes, I know it’s the Left Guard, thats the point. When our RG gets hurt we will have TWO ROOKIES on the line

    dominate, run the damn ball

  4. BucsfanFred Says:

    I think we’ll be good enough on the online, tho I fear another loss.
    Apparently, the BUCS don’t see anyone who would justify cutting a current player for.
    Stink on STs and you may just find us a spot for another OL spot.

  5. BucsfanFred Says:

    We’re not gonna just run the damn ball unless we get way out in front … Or the cowgirls simply can’t stop the early few attempts.
    I think their run defence is at least average or better.

  6. BucsfanFred Says:

    Play action

    If you think crack makes you wise today, you better get a brain scan. One man doesn’t make or break a team. We have far more stars on our team than supposed duds. I don’t even think we have any duds (if Dardone has really improved).

  8. Crickett Baker Says:

    Furthermore, I think you forget how many men (including Gronk) we had injured and not even on the field last year. Yet we somehow still won the division! You Debbie downers need to remember.

  9. BucU Says:

    The Buc defense is completely healthy and ready to explode. Proven stars EVERYWHERE. I believe they’re going to cause havoc.
    They have Parsons. Wipty do.

  10. D-Rok Says:

    Bucs win by 4 (easily), despite Crackwise enduring a frontal lobotomy with a healthy Rx of diphenhydramine hydrochloride.

    Geez, bro – chill, the Bucs got this one.

  11. Bucs Win Says:

    The Bucs will dominate from start to finish.

  12. David Says:

    I agree. The Buccaneers pass rush and secondary are going to be better and their run defense so far this preseason has looked fantastic.

    Honestly I don’t think the cowboy stance ….. But, it’s the first game of the year. Sometimes they are sloppy with a lot of mistakes, they have new lineman in the middle etc. In the long run the Buccaneers will be much better than the Cowboys but in the first game of the year It could be close. I will still take the Buccaneers by 7

  13. George Says:

    Cowboys sack total will be approaching double digits

    Licht has done nothing about bringing in some legitimate offensive line talent

    What a waste of Tom Brady talent

  14. Craig Says:

    Could be a blow out by the Bucs, but I think not. Bucs by 6, because Dallas only has one starting receiver that anyone has ever heard about.

    Dak is always slightly out of phase in the first game, lots of completed dinks, but no working long game, It will be worse without Cooper or Gallop. Zeke will be spinning his wheels.

  15. Redeemer Says:

    This certainly isn’t the cowboys the bucs saw a year ago. They are depleted on the offensive line, and at wide out. As long as Bowles is judicious with the blitz, I don’t see how Dak can push the ball down field. First game is always hard to predict. Parsons always has potential to wreck a gameplan. I’d run right at him, and get him on his heels.

  16. Goatfarmer Says:

    I will be doing cartwheels to be 1-0 late Sunday night.

    Wanna bet georgey boy

  18. Buc king Says:

    People who make light of 2 rookies playing for a non mobile qb..honestly don’t understand football n weak links

  19. Chris Tucker@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Cowboys are now a one receiver team. Only Cee Dee Lamb remains.
    We all saw what happens to a one receiver team Thursday with the Rams, who only have Cooper Kupp Left.
    We will kill the Cowboys, and look for Julio Jones to do it.
    Julio Jones is back, he is healthy, and he is ours!

  20. Buczilla Says:

    Bucs 31 Dallas 17. I’m going to put my faith in the people who say that we have a good secondary and that Dean isn’t helter skelter and injury prone AF. 😜

  21. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    If the first half turns out to be like the Rams game because the line can’t handle the rush just don’t take an entire half to figure it out. Look what happened when Brady finally had time. George you’re a complete waste of the Joe’s talent on this website. We always gotta have legions of gloom and we haven’t even played the first game yet!

  22. Alvafan Says:

    Bucs win 28-13. Bucs come out in the no huddle, score a couple of touchdowns early, then go smash mouth to protect Brady and control the clock. The defense dominates and win the turnover battle 4 to 1. Only bright side for Dallas is a special teams score. Brady’s in the kneel down when time expires.

  23. Old School Nole Says:

    I am so glad that some of you are not involved with personnel decisions. It’s like Jason Licht had a stroke or something and is now incompetent. We will be fine. Every single player in the league was at one time an unproven player making their first start.
