After the Texans game, I was ready to scrap up the season for my beloved team. It hurts to see the team as a whole get whipped like that. But after a couple of days to just reevaluate the rest of the season with a clear head, technically we are still in it. The opportunity for us to make a run for the playoffs will still be there for us to grab come week 17. Right now we can kiss the division goodbye. But the two wild card teams right now would be the Lions and Bears. You can look at their schedules and they both have it a little tough to close out. It sucks that we lost to both of those teams, but they have a record of 6-3. So we are 2 1/2 games back from both of them. We also trail the Cowboys by a game and the Falcons by a game who we both have to play and beat them. Obviously we need a little help from other teams and i think we will get some. Now all the Bucs have to do is win obviously. Now we are playing terrible. But if some miraculous way we can turn it around, and Freeman can start executing properly on offense and the defense can start tackling we can do it. We do have the Packers on a short week and we could upset them. I'm just being optimistic. But then we are left with the Jags, Titans, Panthers twice, Cowboys, and Falcons. Its going to be up to the Bucs to play better and take this wild card spot. But will they? I think so. I just hope I'm right.
