From the Armchair: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Week 9

How do you blow a 21-0 or 21-7 lead? Coming out in the 2nd half and imploding on yourself, that's how!

Rookie Mike James rushed for 158 yards and also threw a touchdown pass. But none of that really mattered because the Bucs lost. 

Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, matters since it is just another L.

On the bright side (and this just occured to me) Buccs aren't the only 0-8 team, so there's that.
also: the "xperts" claim the Buccs will win at least 1 game this season.

Yeah, I don't know what they were thinking with the Bucc calls. It seems this team can play for 30 minutes at a time, but, not a whole 60 mins. It's like they got scared seeing all those points on the board. *smh*

They played really well...I hope they're able to take away some good from that game moving forward. If it hadn't been my team they went up against, I would be wishing they had won.

And hey...if the Seahawks could play like the Bucs for the 1st half and the Bucs could play like the Seahawks the 2nd half, we could have one hellaciously dominant team on our hands!

It helped that the Seahawks decided to give Marshawn the ball more in the 2nd half too. Seattle tends to go the way of their run game, especially with the tackles out. Seahawks D shored up in the 2nd half too. Credit to the Bucs - they played their asses off - but Seattle made adjustments and play calling got better for them in the 2nd half as well.

That was just sad.
