Bucs Losing Ground In NFC South

After suffering a 17-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have now fallen into sole possession of third place in the NFC South despite a 7-4 record. While the Bucs were in third place before the game even started, they did have the same record as New Orleans for several weeks. The Bucs are now two games back from the Atlanta Falcons (9-2) and one back from the Saints (8-3). The Bucs still have one game against each team, starting next week when the Falcons come to Raymond James Stadium.

In the playoff picture, the Bucs are behind the Saints for the fifth seed and are battling with the Green Bay Packers (7-4), the Philadelphia Eagles (7-4), and the New York Giants (7-4) for the sixth seed. If the playoffs were to start today, the Giants would get in as the sixth seed over the Bucs.

    The experts at NFL.com have the BUCS rated as the 14th best team in the NFL. I think we need to look at the big picture and see that the Bucs are coming on strong at the perfect time. They were ranked at about #29 at the beginning of the year and here we have the youngest team in the NFL ranked at #14 and fighting for a playoff spot. What a tremendous accomplishment! If Raheem Morris doesn't get coach of the year I don't know who should get it. He has done a remarkable job with this group of young men. I really look forward to watching this team grow for the next decade. We have at least one more superbowl in our near future.

    Guess What. The PLAYOFFS ARE NOT starting today. The other teams have just as much a chance to lose their games. ANY Given Sunday!!! Why even bring it up PR. You never gave the BUCS a chance to be a playoff team in the first place!!!

    I am disappointed in Wolf Heard and PR for their focus on the NFC South rankings. The BUCS are not competing with the Falcons or Saints for the playoffs. At 7-4 we are competing with the Packers for the final playoff slot and they are 7-4 as well. The Ravens are an elite team and losing to them, on their field, should not be a disappointment. PR is making this loss out to be a major setback!!! Three more wins and the BUCS will reach their goal and they can certainly win 3 out of their last 5 games on the schedule. GO BUCS!!!

    This weekend is a must win game if we are to have any hopes at a playoff push. Then we still need to beat the lions and seahawks at home and the redskins in washington all 3 are winnable games. I don't think 10 wins gets us in.

    This was a very good team and we lost. It's not the end of the world. Bucs will still end up with a winning season after being number three in the draft this last spring. We have a foundation that will continue to grow and mature and we will watch these future stars bloom for yrs to come. To me this is much better than I ever thought I could have expected after last yr.

    How about renaming the blurb to: If the playoffs started today, Bucs out! What you say Wolf?

    That's probably rightthat we are third until we beat either the Falcons or the Saints or both of them. Go Bucs! One win at a time!
