Message boards are fun as long as the people you're posting with know football.
As I have pontificated for many years, the NFL is the "Great Humbler." I would use HTML but some mod with too much power disabled it. And,...message boards are a great release of tension in these hard obama-times. There is some serious hurting going on unless on SS or any kind of welfare.
So it's fun to talk football and get our minds off the rough times we're going through today.
The great humbler has visited the Bucs and Falcons. He's similar to the grim reaper,...long black robe with some kind of weapon that slices the pride out of idiot Falcons fans for one. Bucs fans have been knocked down a bit too, although their expectations weren't as high as the Falcons.
This weekend will define the Bucs and Falcons. The Falcons should win and probably won't. I will address that at a later date. The Bucs should lose and probably will give the Packers what they don't want. I will address that now.
The Bucs still have a serious defense regardless what happened last Sunday. The Bucs are extremely physical and I would bet there's some Packers offensive players feeling some pain come next Monday morning. This will be a statement game for the Bucs, win and you're still in it,...lose and you're out of it boys. I will suggest to the Packers this,...forget about a perfect season and come out of this game healthy. They won't take my advice unfortunately. Their QB will scramble from pressure instead of throwing the ball away, a mistake imo. The Packers will *try* to dominate the Bucs, which is another mistake. How do I know this? LOL shhhhhhh, some of us know football.
