Captain’s Table/Walk the Plank: Buccaneers Ground Eagles


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 32-9 on Monday Night Football to advance to the divisional round against the Detroit Lions. That can only mean it’s time for Carter Brantley’s “Captain’s Table/Walk the Plank” column. Enjoy, and Raise The Flags!

Captain’s Table

Anthony Nelson

We can dance if we want to. We can leave your friends behind. ‘Cause your friends don’t dance. And if they don’t dance. Well, they’re no friends of mine.

The Cowboys

What a wonderful tradition this country gets to experience every year. Watching “America’s Team” fail on the biggest stage on an annual basis. Witnessing Jerry Jones lose his mind. It’s enough to make me tear up and be proud to be an American (where at least I know I’m free…). 

The Buccaneers in the first quarter

What a dynamic start. Just amazing stuff all around. Defense was applying pressure. Offense was dealing and looking like it couldn’t be stopped. Chase McLaughlin was booming. 

Chase McLaughlin

Speaking of the best fucking kicker in the history of football, how about my boy Chase? Give him the Brinks. He’s been money all year, and Monday night was no different. 

David Moore

Turned into Jerry Rice Monday night, and it was Moore’s birthday, too. Happy b-day Mr. Moore. 

Cade Otton

As many drops as he had, he was also getting open. A lot. And hey, he hauled in more than a few. 

Trey Palmer

What a burst of speed. Could he be the answer for the Buce’ true #3 wideout moving forward? It sure would be nice for the Bucs to draft another EDGE guy or an interior offensive lineman in the first and second rounds next year. 

Walk the Plank

Cade Otton

I mean, the drops were brutal. This man couldn’t hold onto a damn thing. What the fuck dude.

The Bucs’ o-line

I know Philly’s d-line is really good. I get it. But man, everyone except Wirfs was putrid. 

Baker Mayfield and throwing the damn ball away

What are we doing here, are we trying to win games or are we trying to get a good completion percentage? 

The Bucs not bringing in Kyle Trask at the end of the game

I know, I’m nitpicking here, but things could have gotten really stupid. Don’t risk it. Philly had given up. Let Trask hand it off for a few plays.
