Hello Joe Bucs Fan...
Sunday's game with the Eagles is as close to a must-win game for the Bucs as they're going to get. Yes, they're only 1 game back of the 2nd Wild Card spot in the NFC, but there are only 4 games left. And there are several teams in the hunt. Losses just won't cut it in December.
The Bucs should beat the Eagles. They are a bad team, in a tailspin, on an 8-game losing streak... much like the Bucs last year.
And the Eagles will be starting a rookie at quarterback in Nick Foles. Still the Bucs have to mount some pressure. There hasn't been much the last several games.
And the Bucs must recapture that high-octane offense, going up-top to the weapons, and Doug Martin running through and around defenders... back to that 35-point-per game offense.
Plus, the Bucs should be able to take advantage of the good vibes at Raymond James Stadium. It's the 2002 Super Bowl Team reunion. It could be a magical Sunday at the Stadium.
I'm Dave Wirth... and I'll see you at the game.
