Buccaneers Wide Receiver Apparently Has a Knack for Scoring TDs When He Wakes Up Angry

In a shocking turn of events, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their fans have, apparently, discovered that waking up on the wrong side of the bed may not be such a bad idea. 

In fact, the practice seems to be doing wonders for Buccaneers receiver Trey Palmer, as evidenced by the rookie’s blazing 56-yard touchdown during Monday’s 32–9 wild-card win over the Philadelphia Eagles

Hours before his huge TD, Palmer posted on X (formerly Twitter) that he woke up feeling “pissed off.” As it turns out, however, the ex-LSU standout, believe or not, may have actually been tapping into his inner Bruce Banner and turning things up a notch when he’s angry.

The NFL shared a thread from X user @TheFFGator pointing out nearly identical Palmer posts ahead of Tampa’s Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 contests against the New Orleans Saints. Perhaps, not surprisingly, Palmer scored the second and third of his three regular-season TDs in those games, suggesting there may be more to his posts than meets the eye.

With the Bucs needing all hands on deck in the divisional round, who would’ve thought a key to the offense’s game plan could factor in Palmer’s unorthodox yet evidently effective formula to success.
