Warren Sapp: That was an embarrassment to a very proud organization
The Bucs lost 31-13 at home to the Panthers and looked terrible all night. They barely did anything offensively, and they struggled to stop the Carolina offense. They even went for it on 4th and 10 at their 16 when they were down 28-6 with just under eight minutes left.
The entire performance was a joke and you could hear the disappointment in Sapp’s voice as he spoke on the NFL Network set following the game.
“That was hard to watch, that was hard to watch,” Sapp said. “That was an embarrassment to a very proud organization who has dug itself out of 0-23 and just put ourselves in position to where we can hang up a world championship banner and we played some great defense. I’ve never seen a team go for it inside their 20 on 4th and 10. Just tells you we have no chance of winning this game.”
Sapp is one of the greatest players in the Buccaneers’ history. The team went 0-14 in its first season and lost the first 12 games of the next year, meaning they were 0-26 to begin their history. But they became successful after Tony Dungy took over in 1996 and won the Super Bowl under Jon Gruden in the 2002 season. They expect to be a lot better than they have been.
This is the second season under Greg Schiano. They went 7-9 last season, but things have looked like a disaster all this year. From the Josh Freeman situation to the MRSA cases, little has gone right for the Bucs. There’s no wonder they’re 0-7.
