These Bucs Are For Real

Raise your hand if you thought the Buccaneers would be 7-3 after 10 games in 2010? Hell, raise it if you thought they’d have seven wins if we included the preseason too? Those of you with a raised hand - liars. All of you.


No one saw this coming. No one. The media billed it a rebuilding season. Peter King of Sports Illustrated penciled in two wins for the lowly Buccaneers. Raheem Morris was the lowest paid coach in the league and the only thing he had less of than money was respect. Everyone knew that this team was destined for 3-13… except nobody told the Buccaneers.


Here we are in Week 10 and the Buccaneers are 7-3. The media is stunned, Peter King is eating his words with his coffee, and Raheem Morris may be coach of the year. That’s right, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 7-3.


Ladies and gentlemen, the debate is over; these Buccaneers are for real.
