TAMPA — Well, that's about as vintage Bucs as it gets. The Yucks, if you will.During the game: two interceptions, two fumbles, two missed field goals.After the game: plenty of shrugged shoulders, grim faces and blank looks.Everything about Tampa Bay's 16-3 loss Sunday to Washington was Bucs circa all the time. All that was missing was John McKay being in favor of the team's execution.Add it all up and it's another loss to throw on the pile. And while this loss doesn't officially end the season, it pretty much puts the Bucs on the exit ramp to nowhere. Again.Another season seemingly down the drain. That's why the Bucs need to go back to quarterback Jameis Winston. Like right this second.Enough of Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Fitz-magic is over.This is nothing personal. This is strictly business. Fitz is a good man. A class act. And not a terrible quarterback. If you need him for a game or two, that's fine. But he's not the man to save your season. Or your job, Dirk … [Read more...] about This should be Bucs’ next turn on the road to nowhere
Turn in the road
Within this notion of hindsight and the present is the human tendency to look back on past events and declare resulting chains of events to be obvious. This is, of course, too easy when you already know what happened. True prescience is about seeing things before they happen and living them in the moment. In life — and with the Minnesota Vikings — this is much harder. Sometimes a sign of what is going to happen next is clear. And sometimes we just want to think it's clear in order to fit a narrative. This all brings us to the 27-6 Vikings' loss to the Bills on Sunday and what, exactly, it means in the grand scheme of things. Was it a warning sign that everything is about to crumble and the Vikings aren't what we thought they were? Or was it closer to a fluky bump in the road for a team with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations? To gauge such things, looking at history — understanding backwards — can be helpful. But in the case of the Vikings, it really only muddies … [Read more...] about Vikings’ debacle vs. Bills: Sign of bad things ahead or a bump in the road?
0 Have your say This is not the competition where Leeds United want Marcelo Bielsa to hang his hat and few of these players have been responsible for taking the club to the top of the Championship. But the division knows now that Bielsa’s model is not finished or infallible.A bump in the road was always coming, irrespective of Leeds’ searing rise to the top of the table this month – the only question was how long it would take to arrive. Bielsa felt it in the second round of the Carabao Cup last night, beaten 2-0 by a Preston North End team who played for 60 minutes with 10 men but made too easy work of reaching the third round. A red card for Ryan Ledson should have sent Preston out but it was Leeds who spent the tie shooting bullets into their own foot.Round three for Bielsa had a certain appeal, presenting the chance to reacquaint himself with old friends. What chance Manchester City or Tottenham Hotspur when Preston are paired in the draw … [Read more...] about Phil Hay’s Verdict: Bump in the road sees Leeds United come a Carabao Cup cropper
