Bucs what they're saying; by the numbers

What they're saying

@TomWJones Would hate to be a wide receiver trying to make the team based on this game.

@TKras Ugly football displayed by the #Bucs tonight. In every aspect so far. Yikes

@FunkyWhiteGuy Are we gonna #SiegetheDay from Hermine?

@PaulFox13 Miserable weather for #Bucs game, but nothing compares to Monsoon Game at the Old Tampa Stadium, December 16, 1979

@CBrueyWFTV I always loved playing football in torrential downpours as a kid. It's not very entertaining during week 4 of the @NFL preseason

@CKurtzman Devin Hester its Jason Licht

@jclark3355 This team not built for rain
