VIP NFL Football's Dirty Dozen | The worst Pro Football teams against the spread coupled with bonehead decisions.
The Tampa Bay Bucs are often called the Yucs for obvious reasons. They should be considered the poster child for all Dirty Dozen polls in the NFL.
Way back in the time machine Coach John McKay used to come up with hilarious one-liners to explain the ineptness of the Bucs. Upon ending a 26-game losing streak, McKay’s remark was vintage, “Three or four plane crashes and we’re in the playoffs.
Well, there were no plane crashes Thursday night against New England, but there were plenty of missed field goals in the atmosphere. Not one, not two, but three from Tampa Bay field goal kicker Nick Folk. Not a Folk Hero in a 19-14 loss to the Patriots, but certainly a Folk Zero.
