This team showed great adversity yesterday. Now I know this game should not have been as close as it was and that needs to be fixed. But for this young Buccaneers team to come out and surrender a two score lead and still overcome adversity is an impressive feat and shows growth with this Bucs team. So many times in the past, we have watched our Bucs slowly self destruct and lose big leads and never get them back. Yes the Bucs should have blown them out, yes the Bucs still suffer from the kicking blues (as of yesterday), yes the Bucs didn’t get a sack against a lackluster Giants offensive lineman. But dammit, we won the game and at the end of the day that is all that truly matters. Finding a way to win no matter what is something we have missed for almost a decade.
Another thing to think about is the fact that the Bucs have an above .500 record past week 1 or week 2 in our case, for the first time since 2010. They’re things the Bucs must work on if they want to make the leap and make the postseason, which is something they have preached all off-season. But this win yesterday is something to be proud of, at least for now. Next we the New England Patriots on Thursday night right here In Tampa and you better believe that team is pissed off over what happened on Sunday. If we can somehow pull out the upset or even look good losing, then this year will Indeed be everything we thought it was. Well, hopefully that is. So enjoy this win while you can because in just 3 days we go back to war.
