Maybe The Bucs ARE The Best Team In The NFC

They're 5-2, folks.


I know there's lots and lots of reasons to doubt them. There's recent history of being awful. There's the way they're winning games now which would seem to indicate that there's some luck involved. And I'm sure there's statistical analysis that indicates that they're just not very good. Still, there's that record of 5-2. That's as good as anybody in the NFC and it's a lot better than teams like Minnesota and Dallas that were supposed to be world beaters this season. MaybeCoach Rah-Rah was on to something (as opposed to just on something) when he said the Bucs are the best team in the NFC. Even if the Bucs are lucky and not that good, if the teams that are supposed to be good are sucking wind, who's to say they're not good enough? They're 5-2, folks! Halfway to 10 wins with a pretty favorable schedule ahead


So at what point do we drop our skepticism and say they're for real?
