Bucs’ Opener Postponed

We’ll have to wait a bit longer for the Buccaneers to kick off their season.

 

This morning, the NFL announced it is postponing the Bucs’ opener against the Miami Dolphins until Week 11, due to Hurricane Irma.

 

Both teams originally had their bye weeks scheduled for Week 11.  Now, they’ll both have to play 16 games in a row.  Not playing in Miami was a no-brainer.  But why couldn’t the NFL move the game to another location?  There are many other stadiums that this game could’ve been played in on Sunday.  But no, Mr. Goodell and his team decided to take away the bye week, putting the Bucs (and Dolphins) at a disadvantage when November rolls around.

 

That said, I hope everyone in Florida stays safe this weekend.  That is the most important thing.
