Buccaneers Beat Themselves, Fall To 1-3
By James Yarcho
Welp…a quarter of the way into the season and the Buccaneers are an all too familiar 1-3. The problems remain the same, yet have not been addressed nor fixed.
Pathetic. Putrid. Uninspired. Unfathomable. Disgusting. These are some of the words that come to mind when you think about the Buccaneers’ performance against the Denver Broncos. Yet another loss at home for a team that couldn’t get out of their own way. The defense, for once, stepped up and did just about everything you could’ve asked of them while the offense were the ones who couldn’t get their act together. Let’s pick six;
Six Topics Suitable For Discussion
Don’t Let Charles Sims Run Anymore.
He’s not a running back. Period. He is lucky to gain one yard on a carry up the middle and – as I’ve been
– he’s only effective in space. He can’t make anyone miss at the line, he has now garnered the label of turnover prone, causing three turnovers in as many weeks. This is why
needed to be re-signed. This is why
is vital to this team. If you can’t finally understand that, no one can help you understand football.

Six Numbers To Consider
-4 – Number of yards the Buccaneers offense had in the third quarter. And yes, that is a negative symbol.
156 – Total minutes in weather delays in Bucs’ first two home games.
1 – Receptions by Adam Humphries following back to back career weeks
1.9 – Yards per carry by Charles Sims. Not cutting it.
3 – Buccaneers wins in their last 19 home games
7 – Career rushing touchdowns by Jameis Winston, second all time behind Doug Williams (13)
Six Ways Your Time Would’ve Been Better Spent Than Watching The Bucs
6.) Learning how to knit
5.) Taking all the neighborhood kids to Chuck E. Cheese
4.) Listening to cheesy romance novel audio books
3.) Painting your garage
2.) Watching that garage paint dry
1.) Binge watching anything on Netflix. Literally anything.
Six Key Performers
Again, this is where I’d list the top players for the Bucs. Outside Clinton McDonald, Will Gholston, and Gerald McCoy (before he was injured) no one deserves praise after this one. This team is a dumpster fire.
Six Super Bowl Favorites
1.) Denver Broncos – This team has no weakness
2.) New England Patriots – 3-1 without Tom Brady? They’re on a mission
3.) Pittsburgh Steelers – That Philly game was a fluke. They’re dominant
4.) Seattle Seahawks – Back on track and heating up.
5.) Green Bay Packers – Off this week, but still extremely dangerous
30.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Lucky to beat Cleveland or Tennessee right now. In fact, how’d they beat Atlanta?
