We’ve only had success at this level one other time and it was 20 years ago. For 20 years plays like Joe Jurevicius and Ronde Barber against the Eagles and Brooks sealing the Superbowl have stood unchallenged as the biggest plays in franchise history.
It’s pretty surreal to realize that SMB getting that pick, Scotty Miller catching that bomb before the half, Whitehead blasting guys into fumbling all over the field… those plays are now right there with those made by the old guard. The kids are alright!
The difference Wirfs has made for that OL is amazing! Cappa had a great season as well. Stinnie has done a good job filling in for Cappa, in some huge games against good teams. Hell, even everyone’s favorite punching bag Donovan Smith has stepped up when the stakes are highest. Winfield has had just as big of an impact in that secondary as Wirfs did on OL. SMB has shown he has some game in him, and the lights aren’t too bright for him! 3 career playoff games, and 3 INTs?? Kid is playing with confidence right now! The experience our young players are gaining this season is invaluable! Tom has this team expecting to win every game. We’re FINALLY seeing a winning attitude out of our beloved Bucs! I expect that same attitude to carry over to next season and beyond! We’re beating some really good teams without playing up to our potential.. Let’s hope the government gets this virus under control, because I’d love to see this team with a full, legit offseason! It won’t be easy, but I fully expect to win this Super Bowl!! We’re finally a team other teams don’t want to play.. Great time to be a Tampa Bay sports fan!! GO BUCS!!
Says who? I agree with you about Barber’s return but it’s been 20 years. How many Bucs fans today have never even seen that? We can argue about specific rankings all we like but the fact is the plays from last Sunday are just as big, if not bigger, to an entire generation of this fan base. They are now Bucs lore just like the ones way back when.
