Hello Joe Bucs Fan!
The Bucs will have 9 days to prepare for this next game, at Seattle... but will it help? The Seahawks, at 7-1, are among the NFL's elite. They are so much better than the 0-7 Bucs, and Century Link Field is among the toughest places to play; those folks are loud!
Add to it the fact the Bucs will be missing 4 offensive starters from the beginning of the season: Josh Freeman, Carl Nicks, Doug Martin, Mike Williams. And a rookie QB will lead them in Mike Glennon, against the second-ranked defense in football.
Do the Bucs have a chance? Sure, there's always a chance... but honestly, probably not.
Greg Schiano said he and the coaches decided they are asking Glennon to do too much, but without Martin running and Williams receiving, how many more offensive weapons are there? The Seahawks will double Vincent Jackson, and that will just about do it.
The Bucs will have a couple of chances the second half of the season to get that first win. This week won't be one of them.
