This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, Bucs fans. The Bucs have a chance to make it to the postseason for the first time since 2007. We’ll all be paying attention to if they can finally get off to a fast start, but at the end of the day, the Bucs have beaten the teams that they’re supposed to beat, and this falls into that category.
Just like last week, the Bucs need to feed their best playmakers. Get Mike Evans the ball and keep throwing it Antonio Brown’s way. The Bucs showed how talented they can be for a half of football, now extend that to a full game. Tampa Bay’s defense has always played better with a lead, so it’ll hunting season for Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul if they can get start off better. With Christmas the day before the game, it would be a nice late present to clinch a wildcard spot and focus on playing football in January.
<p>Lions have screwed the Bucs out of a playoff game before. Terrible no call. </p>
<p>I hope they smash the Lions, but any given Sunday. Bucs need to stop shooting themselves in the foot. One day they aren’t going to be able to muster a comeback. They need this game. </p>
<p>They also need the Saints to lose. </p>
yepp, even twice. that megatron TD sent packers into the postseason and they went all thevway. simply unforgivable!
I said it already but it requires repeating: the pressure is completely on the Bucs and their coaching staff. The Lions have nothing to play for, except tape next season.
This is a game that is completely about coaching getting these guys prepared and ready to face that enormous pressure to make the playoffs. If they lose this, honestly, Brice Arians needs to be fired after the season without a doubt. This team is loaded. No reason to look as bad as they have. That is on coaching. Completely.
I don’t know why I’m so nervous right now. Guess it’s because I’ve been a Bucs fan since the beginning and I’ve gotten my hopes up so many times through the years only to be let down and disappointed. In the situations they should excel and thrive, they tend to fall flat no matter the faces on the team. Hopefully this is all worrying for nothing today! Let’s go Bucs!
