Bucs fans are hanging on to some kind of confidence in the team

It’s really not fun anymore.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Bucs fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

I have to be honest. Getting the pulse of the fanbase is really cool. Getting to see how you all feel about the team was supposed to be a good thing this season with such high expectations. Well that didn’t really go as planned.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fanbase has damn near lost faith in the team. The players can’t execute, the coaches — specifically head coach Dirk Koetter — can’t coach, and they just can’t win.

There’s no reason to be disappointed in the fans because of how they feel. In fact, we might as well join their rage at this point.

The graphic below shows the steady and consistent drop in fan confidence.

The Bucs head to New York to take on a Giants football team that has struggled all season long. If Tampa Bay loses, I suspect this confidence ratings poll may hit the negative range.
