Did The Team Overlook The Bucs?

Saints**, Falcons both swept us last year and the Giants the SB champs

I don't want to criticize, but I think that's the calmest I've seen Cam after a loss since he started. I know he's maturing but it just seemed like once the game was over they was already focused on going back home for the Saints**. The whole play calling was just bizarre, like we still was in the pre-season. Man I hope we win


I also saw Beast post-game interview, he seemed more happy about coming back than the loss, which is understandable but its like damn you just lost to the Bucs

Overlooking and/or looking forward is in my opinion much much worse than simply getting outplayed.

I certainly hope that is not the case. .

I think we out to the Bucs with the same gameplan we used last year against them. The Bucs have pulled a full 180 however though, not in terms of talent, but in terms of mentality and playstyle.

The team should forget about going down to Tampa early in the week. I don't think that helped.

I think the bottom line is Tampa employed the only game plan they could have to beat us. They then executed that game plan perfectly and won.

Cant say the team overlooked them, but can say more than a few on this forum did the 38-10 (and the like) game predictions and all the talk about how easily we would trash them. It never fails to amaze me how folks who have no inside information, aren't a part of the organization, and only know what yahoo/espn/ misc. news outlets spits out, or otherwise their own loyalty, can say with such confidence that we will win against such and such team.

That's why I love this place..its always good for a few laughs. :D

YES. Lafell stated in an interview afterwards that the team remembered the beatdowns they gave the Bucs last year. The coaches and players thoroughly expected to go down there and have their way with them.

I put the entire loss on the coaching staff for not having the players prepared and for not making any adjustments.

And I hate to hear Charles Johnson say "we will bring more intensity this week". Why is it always DEs that have motor problems? Shouldn't you bring 100 percent intensity every Sunday?

Correct. The Panthers out-talent the Bucs. They were out-coached and out-game planned. Thus, 0-1.

If you did, I wouldn't blame you. I would have overlooked us as well.

[/quote]meh...i had confidence in my team. they had the talent to do it. they didn't.

i'm not going to apologize for that prediction nor do i feel dumb about it. i still think they could have done it and i think they probably can the next time they meet. now we know what to expect and plan for and we'll be playing at home. 38-10 is more likely then. we should be able to do that.

I overlooked them badly, I was 1000% sure we would destroy them. The way the Panthers played they def overlooked them.

Our o-line got raped and the play-calling and Cam's decision making were below par. We fans certainly overlooked the Bucs, but I don't think our team did. So much can happen in FA during the offseason to either hurt or improve a team, the Bucs made the right moves, and we got Tolbert.

From here on out I think we'll all be looking closely at our o-line play. Who would have thought that Wharton would have been so important?

Oh and start TD already, it's getting silly watching him on the bench. /rant.

Not me. I sure didn't.
But i know a lot of homers who thought we were going to destroy y'all easily.

I did think we were going to win but not by much. We didn't even stayed in the game. The scoreboard say nothing bout the game.
