Earlier it was said that the Buccaneers are a good team trapped in the body of a stupid one. Late in the team’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the emphasis was heavily on stupid and one single play epitomized the Bucs season perfectly. down 23-14 with a chance to get back into the game against the Niners, Tampa Bay attempted a trick play on a kickoff and ended up fumbling the ball away for a San Francisco touchdown.
It was a rough day for the Bucs that highlights the mistakes and frustrations of the lost season they’ve suffered through under Greg Schiano this year. The fumbled kickoff play isn’t the worst thing to have happened to the Bucs this season but it’s just one of many stupid mistakes they’ve made that have put them in the deep dark hole they’re in currently.
This kind of Keystone Cops routine the Bucs have been running all year is getting thin and the mistakes are getting worse than (or as common as) the MRSA the team’s dirty facility has given to half the played that step foot in the football crater in Tampa Bay.
