Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The mess that is the Miami Dolphins organization continued to deteriorate Monday, despite owner Stephen Ross speaking for the first time on the matter and announcing a new committee to look at the state of the team.
Many Miami Dolphins players spent part of the last week talking about how the scandal that has enveloped the team would help galvanize the team and get them to play better starting against winless Tampa Bay.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are winless no more, and they can thank the Tennessee Titans for helping them finally getting their first victory this season.
The Dolphins are dealing with major distractions. But can the Bucs use that to win their first game?
Lost amidst the ugly story surrounding offensive lineman Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin is the team still has to prepare for Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without two starting offensive linemen.
The legendary comedy “Blazing Saddles” featured the line, “What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here.” While that line was uttered in the 1970’s, it perfectly fits the state of college and pro football in Florida.
The 2013 Tampa Bay Buccaneers came into the season hoping to ride a big offseason of moves into competing for the NFC South title. It’s safe to say though that the wheels have completely come off that ride.
Only two teams have ever gone winless for an entire regular season in NFL history, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the 2008 Detroit Lions. This year, two teams remain winless roughly half-way through the season, the Buccaneers and the Jaguars.
Each year, Florida’s high schools and colleges are loaded with talent that routinely dominates high school and college football. The same can’t be said for the state’s three professional football teams.
The losses are mounting and the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers are running out of explanations for why their season has gone sour and what they can to do to turn it around.
