    They have a very formidable defense, this wont be a walk in the park with or without Bradford. Hopefully Bradford will be out. I would like to see us establish the run more, maybe give Barber more carries.

    They have a formidable defense but establish the run?

    This is the wrong game to establish one thing or another. You have to exploit weaknesses as they arise and be unpredictable.

    I'm all for establishing the run but it needs to be against teams like Arizona and the Jets, maybe even the Giants.

    It seems we are having a little luck currently, Bradford likely won't play and I don't think they can win without him this week. Meanwhile the Giants who we play next week, who have a terrible OL, will face Philadelphia and their dominant front 7. We could be facing a battered and bruised 0-3 Giants team. Personally looking at our schedule I can see is starting 8-2 or 9-1 heading into the ATL game.

    ^ I was thinking the same thing. 9 wins going into December, if we take 2 of the next 3. Nothing wrong with a little luck every now and then. We have certainly dealt with bad luck before lol. I just saw that the Viks kicker has missed 2 EP's. What the hell is the deal w/ all of these kickers?

    @Bwall- how do I change my picture, or set my image next to my name, like most of you have? I haven't changed mine since we drafted Lavonte lol.

    I think the biggest mistake any of us can make is to start projecting wins against teams with injuries and if certain players are playing or not.

    This is the NFL and it is professional sports.... Anything can happen.

    The mindset we should have as fans and the mindset The Bucs players and staff should have is to pick out the weaknesses that the Minnesota Vikings Football Team have and exploit them.

    I am not sure why we are looking past any team. What if we obtain injuries? What if we play like garbage on the road or at home on a sunday? What if it's raining and we are playing a top end front 7 and its pouring rain and we need to run the ball 80 percent of the time and can't?

    We need to focus on Minnesota and Minnesota only. They are 1-0 in their new building and there not going to give away that 0 for a Bucs Team who hasn't made the playoffs in a decade.

    I strongly suggest against telling other people what to do. This is a forum and we can choose to talk about whatever we like. Players need a singular focus, it makes no difference what I as a fan say or think.

    You're one of the newest posters here, handle your own business.

    This is a forum for people to post. Being new to post is irrelevant. Desean Jackson is a new buccaneer this year, does that mean he is the slowest player on the team? No. He is the fastest. As I have stated dozens of times, I observed this forum for years. Just because I wasn't officially signed up means zip squat.

    You guys can project what you think we will be or what we could be 9 games down the line. Biggest mistake anyone in sports and in life make is projecting an end result and not enjoying the destination along the way.

    Even as a fan all I want is a repeat performance of last Sunday and a road W at a tough Minnesota team in their new building and going 2-0 in the NFC.

    Don't care about New England in Week 5 or New Orleans in week 17.

    Let's do what it takes to get this win in 4 days.

    Simple, really.

    Buddy you need to relax. I called a few of you out because u dont look ahead and say we r gonna get 8 of the next 9 games and put them in the win column. Dont do that. Its bad karma. Take a bit of criticism and own up to the fact that its not intelligent to project wins in professional sports because we all know we could be an injury away or a bad day at the office from losing a few. Simple mindset. Relax, relax, relax.

    Are you comparing yourself to Desean Jackson lol? I wont be playing on Sunday, so it really doesn't matter what my mind is on! As far as karma, I don't believe that my thoughts will change anything for this teams performance. So we are simply not on the same page there.
