Meh

Still the best player on the team.
I’ve had some things to do today, so I haven’t been able to get to the write-up of yesterday’s game [sic] yet. I usually have things to do on other days as well and generally get to posting at least something about the game by now, but I’m just not fucking motivated. It was uncompetitive, uninspired and doesn’t inspire me to write. Even bad games give me something to write about, and while this game definitely was bad, it was bad in a completely boring way. Do you want to know how bad it was? I almost found myself rooting for the Panthers. They were just playing fun football. A double pass to the quarterback? Who doesn’t love those? It was fun to watch.

So, I’ll get to the write-up soon. Probably tonight, maybe tomorrow morning. But I just can’t dredge up enough give-a-shit to put off other real world things to do it right now. This may be the first time in the life of this blog that I probably could do it, but just choose to put it off. And if I, a Bucs blogger for the last several years, feel this apathetic, imagine how the casual fan feels who is trying to decide whether or not to attend a game.

I disagree with Sapp and even Scott for the first and only time in that I believe as a fan I am entitled to say “my Bucs” and WE suck. I don’t put on the uniform but I do watch the games and buy the gear and thus in my thinking a fan is part of the “team”.

Having said that, Raheem is done. He was out of line with Price, HIS defense is 31st in the league. He is on pace to lead one of the worst defenses in team history. And nobody wants to play for him.

Scott, the Bucs gave you nothing to really blog about, so I completely get why you may want to sit this week out. Our team radically under-performs, which is the worst position to be in.

Jeff Fisher, please?

If they suck, they suck and not saying so doesn’t help. The effort they have put forth this year has been at best inconsistent, and they are being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars. So, why should I put forth effort when I have to pay to watch these games? I am done with the Bucs for this year. Nothing they do matters to me from here on out. That’s not being fair weather, that’s just being relistic.

Don’t blame you at all Scott. Usually when the team is playing poorly I’ll show a little frustration with the occasional “god damnit” or “what was that?!” but I found myself quietly chuckling during the game. I’m only 30 so i wasn’t around for the original yucks but the way I feel now must be what those people felt back in the 70′s. It’s almost comical. Only bright spot I saw was Bowers.
Go Bucs?…

I suppose all we can say is YUCK, or maybe YUCK, YUCK, YUCK.
For those players that can after this year…tell your agent you want to abandon ship…for the rest, well, tell your agent you want to abondon ship. It isn’t gonna get any better with the Glazers’ tight pocket book and hand-me-down coaches.

The game marked a first for myself as well–first time I’ve ever put the Christmas lights up on the house the first weekend of December, like my wife always wants. I got started at halftime.

For the first time since i’ve supported this team (and i sat through the entire 3-13 season) i can say that i am actually embarrassed to be a fan of the tampa bay buccaneers. Until now when we’ve sucked it was because we were young or inexperienced or we had a tough schedual. Now we suck because the players no longer care. And who can blame them when their head coach is so desperate to cover his own ass he tries to make a scapegoat of one of the best players on our team?!? Where was this no-nonsence stance when talib (a convicted fellon) did the exact same thing in london?

For my part (and i can’t believe i’m going to say this) i hope we lose to the jags next week. A win would just continue to cover up the fact that there is something seriously wrong down in tampa.

We need to get these last 4 games out the way and get a decent draft pick to start filling the many holes in our lineup. We need to abandon this rebuild through the draft strategy (nice idea dom, but it failed) and finally bring in some free agents to add some experience that we are sorely lacking. We need to get 2 co-ordinators and a head coach who understand this team and plays to our strengths, who can mentor these young players and not befriend them. And finally we need to get some heart back in tampa, some sort of passion and drive. The only way we will fill this stadium and get our fans back is if we give them a reason to love bucs football again.

The idea of building a young team around a solid ground game is sound and proven over NFL history. What a team needs to make that work is a defense that can stop the other guy, and a passing offense that is efficient. We have neither. We are among the worst in yards and points allowed and we have way too many drops on offense. This year has exposed all of our weaknesses.
