Breathe in, breathe out. Repeat. All is not lost this year. The Buccaneers and Panthers sent their “B-teams” on the field Monday night as the Bucs steal one in Charlotte to remain unbeaten in the NFC South.
It was ugly. Very, very ugly. Yet, somehow the Buccaneers found a way to squeak out a win in Charlotte for the first time since 2012, coincidentally the last time they beat the Panthers. Dirk Koetter had some extremely questionable play calls especially at the end of the game, but a win is a win and going 2-0 in the division – both games on the road – is a huge boost for this team going forward. Let’s pick six, shall we?

Roberto Aguayo Goes From Goat To Hero?
No. Absolutely not. Yes, he made the game winning kick, but he missed two before that and is 4/8 on the season. He’s not getting a pass because he finally got his act together and did his freaking job. Jon Gruden’s story about
was an eye opening one as well as entertaining. I wonder if he shared that with Koetter before the game because I’m sure Koetter feels the same way.
