Personal Narrative: The Bucs Team

Improved Essays
This team showed great adversity yesterday. Now I know this game should not have been as close as it was and that needs to be fixed. But for this young Buccaneers team to come out and surrender a two score lead and still overcome adversity is an impressive feat and shows growth with this Bucs team. So many times in the past, we have watched our Bucs slowly self destruct and lose big leads and never get them back. Yes the Bucs should have blown them out, yes the Bucs still suffer from the kicking blues (as of yesterday), yes the Bucs didn't get a sack against a lackluster Giants offensive lineman. But dammit, we won the game and at the end of the day that is all that truly matters. Finding a way to win no matter what is something we have missed for almost a decade. …show more content…
They're things the Bucs must work on if they want to make the leap and make the postseason, which is something they have preached all off-season. But this win yesterday is something to be proud of, at least for now. Next we the New England Patriots on Thursday night right here In Tampa and you better believe that team is pissed off over what happened on Sunday. If we can somehow pull out the upset or even look good losing, then this year will Indeed be everything we thought it was. Well, hopefully that is. So enjoy this win while you can because in just 3 days we go back to

    And for Rake, he wishes that he could take back what he did during halftime of the 1987 championship game and also what he never told his players. Sometimes it takes a very long time for one to recognize when one needs to express something one has been holding back. When one realizes that one cannot change, one regrets forever being in that situation in the first place. When Neely was in high school he never thought that he might regret playing football. He did not regret it until he blew out his knee in a college football game that ended his career forever.…

    “You’ll always be too small, you should quit.” Those words have stuck with me and will stick with me until I prove him wrong. It started in youth football my second year of playing and i was kind of nervous about playing and i wasn’t very gregarious. My coach didn’t help with that at all. My coach was one of the most intense and hardest working coaches in the league are first game was coming up and he was pushing us to are absolute limits out on the field which was not the best idea in my mind because we were undefeated so far this year and we had our toughest game coming up and we all knew we had a chance at the championship this year but he still pushed us until we were bending over gasping for air. The only thing that made that day better…

However, we managed to leave these events behind and began to work on our future to become a better team. Although we had a rough start to the season, we knew we had a chance if we could get a good start in the playoffs. The decision…

    Failure is expected, and it is because of failure that perseverance and determination show in additional attempts at success. The more often a person fails and takes a second chance, the stronger he or she becomes, and his or her chance at ultimately succeeding and reaching his or her goal increases dramatically. Without failure, success would not have any meaning, and the achievement has a greater significance if it required hard work. It is also through mistakes and upsets that the right way is learned. When I was not chosen for the elite softball team I tried out for the first time, I was upset, but after working hard all winter and getting selected for a second team, I felt accomplished.…

    Apparently my team was the only team who had no club players and 6 out of the 11 players were rookies. I knew this season wasn’t going to be an effortless one but that wasn’t going to cease the fact that I would lead the team into the playoffs. I quickly knew I needed the support of others to get the team going. After tiring practices the team was ready to face the first matches. The first match came by and the team was a mess we created opportunities but the ball wouldn’t go in and we lost 3-1 which would be our only defeat.…

    The game did not start the way we wanted it, we played terrible the first four innings, making many errors and mental mistakes that cost runs. The game was starting to favor the other team by a staggering amount, and it was looking like our hard work during the season was about to mean nothing. Then we staged a comeback and started chipping away at their lead. We took the game to extra innings which gave us another chance at winning the big game. Then it took…
