Smoke, a Barber, mirrors, and a 62-yarder

I’m calm now.

I’ve yelled myself hoarse, and I’m home alone. (Must be football season.)

Now that the adrenaline has flushed from my system, I’ve encountered a few sobering thoughts…

Passing yards, rushing yards, offensive big plays, and time of possession – all went the Eagles way. The Eagles clearly outplayed the Bucs. The Bucs offense scored all of 6 points, despite having pretty good field position all day – on less than 200 total yards of offense. The Bucs defense gave up something like 500 yards of offense to the Eagles – which included a ridiculous 52-yard play featuring 4 missed tackles that almost ended the game. Statistically the Bucs got KILLED.

And yet they win by two.

You take the win, but it’s nothing to brag about.

Give the gift of words.
