The Bucs are in a funk. The poor outing against NYG that led to the blowout loss against the division rival Saints, with 1st place in the NFC on the line, may now be leading to a blowout loss to the last place Panthers.
Marpet has already been ruled out again and the guys just spent 8 hours on the tarmac at TIA dealing with “mechanical issues”. 8 hours that could have been spend getting rest, going through their last meetings, and nourishing thier bodies… wasted on a tarmac. I wish it weren’t true, but I can feel this loss coming way down in my gut, and it isn’t going to be pretty.
This is the time to breakout the lucky jerseys, hats, etc. We can’t lose this one. But it feels inevitable. 😞
I was wrong and I can stop thanking God (and rojo). This win means a lot more than could be taken at face value if you consider all the adversity we’ve faced all week: coming off two poorly played games, closing the facilities early for the storm, losing marpet, spending 8 hours on the tarmac last night, BS roughing the passer penalty on a key sack in the 1st half… speaks volumes to where this team is going to go.
