The Future Is Now In Pewterland


My local area of Tampa-St. Pete was a bit fired up over the Bucs 14-5 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. (Yes, 14-5 is a very rare score for an NFL game, with Sunday’s game only the 2nd such occurrence in NFL history.)

I was telling friends before the season that if the defense began to gel, the Tampa Bay squad had a very good chance at being a good team. I was recommending the defense as a fantasy pick early on in the season, but that was back when they were giving up a lot of points to their opponents.

A win against the Chargers in San Diego gets the Bucs to 7 wins and 5 losses with four games left in the regular season. If that happens, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Tampa Bay makes the playoffs THIS season, ending a nine season drought.

I think it’s a safe bet that most people didn’t see them making the playoffs this year, so the future might be here for them sooner than anyone thought.
