    Man, my Bucs are starting to get that Georgia porch dog look about them – mean and nasty! No way I’m bettin’ against these dudes. Bucs 35, Colts 17

    Colts will let the Bucs take an early advantage. They have been down 14 or more to Carolina, Atlanta, New Orleans, Tennessee, New England, and Buffalo. They have come back in all of them, winning a few and taking Carolina to an improbable overtime. They are resilient in Indy, so Tampa will have to be aware of that. The key is continuing to apply pressure and play offense. Special teams are strengths for both teams and it will be an important part of the game. Limit turnovers and keep Hasslebeck under pressure. Bucs get a late touchdown and win 31-20

    I often say that NFL football is more a mental than physical game. That’s why momentum can sway the outcome of games so much. Here we have a team in the Colts who, in spite of their modest record, realize they are still in contention to win their Division. There’s no doubt that they, unlike the Cowboys, believe they can still win without their star QB. Perhaps our defense can expose some age spots on Father Time and allow some doubt to infest their mindset.

    As for the Mighty Bucs; there’s two paths the team can take after the recent success. As youngsters, they can think they have already reached the mountaintop and allow complacency to cloud their vision of reality or see themselves as that Little Train That Could when it realizes “I know I can.” Woo Woo!

    Bucs lose a close one.33- 31 in hard fought game. Winston has great game but goes down to defeat. Martin gets over 100 and Evans too. Defense plays well but loses the game at the end.

    1. 7.1


      If Martin gets 100 yards the Bucs will win.

    Another close games. Bucs win by 4.

    I’m worried that Hasselbeck goes all Johnny U on us. Come on McCoy, go get him! You too Jack Smith!
