Sunday, 6:50 p.m.

In the middle of December, a football team is supposed to show how much it deserves to be in the NFL playoffs.

Sadly, the Bucs did.

They are supposed to show the mettle of their defense, and the efficiency of their offense, and show how they match up against the lesser teams of the NFL.

Unfortunately, the Bucs did.

On Sunday, the Bucs looked like a team that was fooling itself as far as the post-season goes. They scored only 17 points against the worst defense in the league. They could not stop Drew Brees. They could not avoid penalties. They could not make third downs.

And in the end, the Bucs could not win.

mediocrity and reality return to Ray Jay. A lack of talent and lack of intelligence. So, if they go 6 – 10, is that a successful season? Yes and no.
