2011 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Season: It’s A Wreck

Buccaneers Gab Featured Contributor Chris C.

Think of a car that has been totaled.  Or rather, think of the 2011 Bucs, and then try to think of an analogy that captures them.  My guess is that a totaled car will be the least gruesome of the images that come to mind.

There is no need to rehash the grisly details.  We’ve seen them; they’re seared into our collective frontal cortex.  What we want to know is: How did this happen?

Think of the totaled car.  Sometimes the accident that produced a wreck is easily explicable: the driver was, as we say, “under the influence.”  The first thought we have, thus, is that perhaps the drivers of our team have not been in their right minds.  Olson calls an end-around, to Benn, which has never worked, on third and two, in the red zone, during a crucial drive, and loses twelve yards.  Question: Which game am I talking about?

It would be tougher to say if we hadn’t just witnessed it as the centerpiece inanity in a 38-19 blowout loss to the lowly Panthers.
