    As much as I want us to win, I don’t see this happening as we are very weak at the available DL positions. I think we are going to get blown out. Winston is a River Boat Gambler and will throw interceptions when we get more than 8 points behind; he wants to win the game and I can’t blame him for taking those chances. I sure hope I am wrong! Go Bucs; prove me wrong!

    1. 1.1


      I didn’t mean my statement to be something negative about Winston as I am a big fan of his. Go Bucs!

    Scott, I understand you don’t want Pewter Report to seem to be negative against the team. You really have pointed out the reasons why we should lose the game and will be lucky as heck if we win. We aren’t going to be able to match the Falcons offensive power this go around because the DL is just too weak unless Lovie sends the calvery to sack Ryan.

    As Winston becomes more seasoned, he’s going to be able to win games that you might think the Bucs should lose. It’ll depend on whether he’s hot, but I think the Bucs have a solid chance at winning this game. They’ve gotta go in pumped and fired up. Is ASJ playing this week? This isn’t the old Bucs that automatically fade at the end of the season. We’ve got a QB now that is a fiery leader and will get these guys going… This is where the rubber meets the road with all of those pre-draft comparisons.

    I’m looking for some signs of a true home field advantage. So far, that really hasn’t been the case. We play better in hostile environments. We got the turnovers last time. I doubt we cando that again. Hopefully Jamiscan light them up enough to win again.

    Too many DL out or teetering. Jenkins probably will not play either and even if he did he is going to be out of shape game wise. This game is important if there was any hope of actually having a winning season, and a win here would be amazing for Team Confidence. I think Bucs lose it in a close one.

    We here in Bucville are used to losing and thinking a win is only possible if the defense can stop the opponent or the opponent suffers a streak of bad luck and the mighty Bucs luck out and get an undeserved victory in spite of themselves. That was then, this is now. Now the offense can win games. The Falcons across the board are no better than the Buccaneers. They rolled up the 500 yards of offense on a secondary that is no longer the group on the field. RB Devonta Freeman, who I wanted to draft, is the main one to stop. In the past it seems it’s players other than Julio who give us the most difficulty. Guys like Hester, Gonzalez, White and others. Our defenders just need to play smart and avoid these costly penalties that are aiding the opponent. On offense it’s the same tact. Don’t aid their relatively weak defense by senseless penalties and turnovers. In short, don’t beat ourselves and Bucs should come out on top.

    It won’t hurt if Dougie Williams lifts the curse either. Both times he left we had the whammy put on us. Coincidence?

    Let’s hope I-75 gets jammed up by the departing disappointed Falcon fans after the 3rd quarter.
