Buccaneers fans have lost confidence in the team

Biggest drop in confidence across SB Nation blogs.

Well, for the second time in as many games, the Buccaneers looked like they didn’t belong on the football field with their opponent. Especially the defense.

Following last week’s 48-10 loss to Chicago, not only did the Bears beat any potential confidence out of Tampa Bay, they have demoralized the Bucs fanbase. Fans had lots of confidence heading into Weeks 3 and 4. But it seems like many have already lost hope.

Below is the graphic for the confidence rating. Talk about a disturbing drop.


The confidence rating after Week 4 dropped 72-percent — the biggest difference across all of SB Nation. Getting embarrassed will do that.

Fortunately, the Buccaneers enter the bye week with a chance to correct things. If they don’t, have to wonder how much worse things will get.
