#HMB 259 - Return of Fitzmagic
Hey gang, welcome to the week. It was a tough one for the return of the man, myth and near legend Ryan Fitzpatrick. He took over the starting Quarterback job for the Bucs for the time being and it didn’t even up great on Sunday, although he had a pretty dang good game stat wise. Threw for 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. My prediction for a Bucs win was dashed almost immediately when the Panthers opened up a can whoop ass in the first half, scoring 35 points and putting Fitz “far behind the 8 ball”. God I hate that phrase…
So what’s the deal? The real problem is the Defense and Special Teams. You can’t give up 35 points in the first half and expect to win that game. The D is abysmal, like historically bad. The Kicker was pretty good yesterday but he hasn’t been this season and the Bucs appear to be cursed at that position since the STAPH saga and releasing Matt Bryant (who kicked a game winner against the Bucs a few weeks ago). The season appears to be a loss at this point. They just can’t win with the Defense they have now. As great as Fitz has been I think it’s time to just see if Winston is the guy for the future. Play him the rest of the way and see if he’s worth that 5th year 20 million dollar option or if it’s time to clean house and start over once again. It’s hard being a fan of this team, they’ve been so bad for so long and there just doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. They acquire lots of talent but can’t get the wins.
Anyhoo, this week on the pod we talk about Fitz being back, Hillary Clinton has a sense of humor and we aren’t adult enough to celebrate the children’s holiday of Halloween. Check out the pod here, tell a friend, rate and subscribe. Thanks and I like you more than a friend.
