SB Nation Reacts: Confidence, the 600th touchdown ball, and a Bucs curse

The fans have voted, and confidence in the team remains high.

The Buccaneers are comfortably sitting atop the NFC South division with a 6-1 record. Although an interesting first quarter of the season included a loss to the Rams that forced fans confidence to dip a bit, fans have come back around as they seem to no longer be concerned with the team.

In the latest SB Nation Reacts poll for this week, Buccaneers remain extremely confident in their team heading into Week 8 this Sunday against the Saints.

In another poll this week sent out to SB Nation NFL fans, the question centered around Tom Brady’s 600th touchdown ball that wide receiver Mike Evans had handed to a fan following the reception in the end zone. We all know by now what happened later as a team representative had to negotiate with the fan who got the ball to get it back.

Fortunately there are still some good people left in the world as 69-percent of fans who voted said they would return the ball.

And finally, another poll relating to the Bucs this week asked Tampa Bay fans if all the injuries in the Buccaneers secondary was related to perhaps some kind of reverse Madden curse on the team as Brady was on the cover of the very popular EA Sports game for this season.

Only 9-percent of the fans think the injuries are related to the ever-dreaded Madden curse.

Hey, I’m sure the fans think as long as Brady’s arm isn’t cursed then they’re good.
