It’s Too Late Tonight To Be Writing These Things

The Bucs will celebrate the ten-year anniversary of their Super Bowl victory (and the last time they won a playoff game — true story) next Sunday during halftime of the Eagles game. There is a long list of attendees who are scheduled to make it, including Jon Gruden who has to get right back on a plane and get ready to call a Monday night game (and, apparently, not get introduced as the new Vols coach. Bite me, Chucky.) Sapp, Brooks, Lynch, Rice, Alstott, Brad Johnson, Pittman, Jurevicius, and over 40 more have committed to attending. One notable absence is Keyshawn Johnson, who, when asked, said that he had better things to do. I’m just kidding. No one asked because no one gives a shit about Keyshawn anymore.

They’ll bring the Lombardi trophy out and Gruden will hold it up like he did ten years ago and make a small speech thanking the team and the fans. It will be cool and all and I never get tired of seeing footage of that season, but man, it really reminds me that the Bucs haven’t even come close to that kind of success since then. I don’t think the Patriots had a celebration last year of their ten-year anniversary of the 2001 Super Bowl win. Why? Because they’re still going to Super Bowls.

Sorry, I don’t mean to go negative here. It’s been a frustrating day and I really just want to see this team back on top again. I think they’re on the right path and am optimistic. And even though it won’t mean much if they lose this game tomorrow, it will really mean a whole lot if they win it. It might salvage this weekend for me. And when you think about it, I think you’ll agree that it’s really all about me.

Fuck Keyshawn. He looks like a giant 8 year old.

Well, I could have done without that 2nd half.

Playoffs are getting real iffy with this loss and the Seahawks winning (thanks replacement refs).

I’d love to see this game played with the 10 Bucs players who are on IR and 2 new CBs. Next year, Bucs will be a Superbowl contender.

Don’t forget that the Bucs have had the Saints’ number in New Orleans in recent years. A four-game winning streak to end the season is a strong possibility.

I said it last week, that beating the Broncos in Denver would take a mircacle and that the next 4 games are all winnable. Predicted 10-6 but no playoff berth. Which is just fine, as they are way ahead of schedule. Next year, who knows, but I think they will be better. Some things we always know about next year: There will be key injuries, someone will get old, someone will improve and some new one will impress. We still need a WO, like Johnson. Need 2 CBs, a DT, an OT and OG/C (backups), TE and a relief back and better backups at LB. With this coach, I think the improvements will outpace the setbacks just as long as the team stays young.

I’m starting to get a little worried about underestimating the Eagles or Rams – those games are setting up as classic traps the way I hear people talking. How many consecutive games can the Eagles drop? statistics would say that streak has to end sooner than later. Plus we always seem to get burned by QBs with very little game tape to study (Cody Pickett anyone?). Then the Rams are quietly playing competent football against the 49ers twice in 3 weeks… Hope I’m wrong, but the 2 home games are gonna be tougher than I think people are giving the Eagles/Rams credit for.

That’s 12 guys–you’d never sneak it past Peyton.
