The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the best team in the history of the NFC*, look to remain undefeated at 6-2 after ingesting the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday. The Bucs have crushed the best the NFL has thrown at them, obliterating Jim Brown's Cleveland Browns, Norm Van Brocklin's Los Angeles Rams, Ken Anderson's Cincinnati Bengals, an all-star team from the future called the Carolina Panthers, and Paddy Driscoll's Chicago Cardinals.
The Falcons, meanwhile, are 0-2 against teams from Pennsylvania.
Bucs QB Josh Freeman recently sent his 2010 MVP award, retroactive 2009 Rookie of the Year Award, and 2011 Comeback Player of the Year and Most Improved Player awards to Canton, Ohio, which has renamed itself Tampa, Florida for the rest of the season.
Tampa rides an infinite two-game winning streak after one- and three-point manhandlings of otherwise undefeated division leaders. The 1972 Miami Dolphins, who annually celebrate the first loss of each season's final undefeated team, have already hand-delivered their champagne collection to 4201 North Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, Florida and gone into the wilderness, crying out while eating wild locusts and honey.
The Bucs have also played a pair of exhibition games for charity against the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints. A good time was had by all, and plenty of money was raised for some really great causes.
Falcons head coach Mike Smith explained what a great honor it will be for Atlanta's thriving Georgia Buccaneer Fan Club to get to see the team in the recently expanded Georgia Dome, as the GBFC has been unable to even reach Raymond James Stadium due to miles of traffic caused by the many heads of state and rappers who jostle for tickets each game.
* Apologies for selling the Bucs short, but the National Football Conference has only existed since 1970.
