I hate to be this negative only 3 games into the season, but have you looked at the Bucs schedule lately? The only game we might be favored the rest of the season is the Carolina game at home.
I know it’s early, but does this years Bucs team look any different than last years Lions team? Our quarterback situation is a mess, our defense can’t stop anybody, and we don’t really have any game changing talent. There’s obviously a lot of season left to play, but this team needs to win this game.
Washington lost to Detroit last week and has to be reeling right now. Washington’s offense has looked terrible this year so this could be a great game for our defense to get on track. This game should give us a glimpse of how the rest of the season is going to go.
If Josh Johnson can inject some energy into the Bucs offense, they might be able to jump on the Redskins early and kick them while their down. A win here and we might give us some hope that this team can at least be competitive for the remainder of the season. However, a loss on Sunday would give everyone in Tampa even more reason to give up on this team.
