"I don't do Pro Days, we send our scouts to those. I would rather spend my time watching film. The eye in the sky never lies. Functional Strength and athletic ability are the first things we look for in a college prospect." - Mark Dominik, Buccaneers GM
Dude. Every single one of us was rooting for the team. It's not like we wanted them to lose. We just didn't think that we would have won against the Saints.
This is still a team that a LONG WAYS TO GO. They need more talent all across the board. We are playing with a QB well past his prime with no clear answer at the position. Just think about that.
Be honest with yourself and answer the question, did you think they could honestly beat the Saints. No one thought they could. The Hawks defense had been horrible, our QB situation sucked, and the running game nonexistent.
Our defense stepped up in big ways at times, our QB played probably one of the games of his life, and the running game was able to seal the deal. Things that no one could have forseen.
So go ahead call us out for thinking that the Seahawks were better off losing. They probably still were. But this win justifies beating the Rams, the Hawks accomplished something that no one thought they could do. If we had lost, it would have been pointless to win that game against the Rams.
Of course the Hawks have a chance in every game they play. Score starts out at 0-0 and this last weekend shows why you play the game.
But still, I don't think it was embarrassing of us to be talking about the draft implications when they were the most interesting thing immediately after that game. Not talking about the Saints, who we already played, and everyone in the country knew everything about the Saints-Seahawks matchup. What else was there to say?
