Hello Joe Bucs Fan... is this the week the Bucs end the skid? If you look at the records, you could say, maybe. The Falcons are a major disappointment at 1-4, they've lost 3 straight, and they've got several front-liners injured.
But what have you seen from the Bucs that makes you think they're ready to win? They're still having trouble finishing off games, most recently losing another second half to the Eagles.
They lost two more players to surgeries, this week alone: Carl Nicks and Jeff Demps.
And the inconsistent offensive line can't create holes for Doug Martin.
Now Mike Glennon made improvement last week: 273 yards and 2 touchdowns... and there was a flash of running ability. Maybe there is some hope for the future...
Their history at the Georgia Dome isn't great; 1-4 over the last 5 years, although they won the season finale last year.
And they have a Thursday game next week against Carolina, so 2 games in 5 days.
It just keeps getting tougher for the Bucs, and the leash tighter on Greg Schiano. How long can he last?
