3. VINCENT JACKSON DESERVES IT
What do the Tampa Bay and Arizona offenses have in common? Elite receivers on their roster who deserve more. Yes, I’m comparing Vincent Jackson to the great Larry Fitzgerald. You’re welcome. No really, it’s the least I could do. And since your season is all but over why not go out with a bang? Especially because if the Cardinals don’t make the playoffs Larry might be buying a one way ticket out of the Valley of the Sun. So… help a brother out, would ya?
4. BECAUSE YOU’RE THE BETTER TEAM
That’s right. I said it. And if I said it it must be true. Sure I could say other things. “The Saints have Drew Brees on their roster and your quarterback is JoJo the Circus Boy.” Or, “Tampa Bay is to NFL Football what Keanu Reeves is to dramatic acting.” But I’m not saying those things. No, I’ve decided to put in print that you, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are a better professional football team than The New Orleans Saints. And look, nothing happened. I feel fine. Wait. I think I just went blind in my right eye. Uh-oh…
5. BECAUSE SHIANO, THAT’S WHY!
Greg Schiano is great, isn’t he? From his blockhead expressions to his neanderthal approach to the game, he never ceases to entertain. What will the NFL do without his patented kneel down torpedoes or his oft discussed… his um, oft discussed um… Okay maybe that’s the only thing he’s known for, but wasn’t it funny when he got NY Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin all hot and bothered about it? And what better way to keep this goon around than by booting the big dog of the NFC South out of the playoffs?
Look, we know it’s not likely. Heck, it’s darn near impossible. But just know that if you somehow pull this off it might just be because you had an extra 6.5 million fans rooting for an underdog to shock the world. We believe in you Tampa. We hope you believe in yourselves. Go Bucs!
Sincerely, Arizona Cardinals Fans.
