Dont take the Raider game for granted, Cable will use the Gruden Davis story to motivate his team and they did show signs of life last week. If the Raiders do get on the same page they have alot of talent and would love to crush Gruden for the Boss.

Tampa gave up 38 points to Carolina and 41 to the Chargers two weeks later (yeah 7 on on INT return); did Monte Kiffin already leave for Tennessee to coach for his son? Does Tennessee still want him?

look this team is exactly what I thought, WEAK at most positions. Does this team deserve to be in the playoffs? about as much as Brooks deserves to be in the pro bowl!!!!

This team does not deserve a playoff berth. They have played absolutely horrible on both sides of the ball for 3 weeks. A win in any of those games and they are in. Pathetic for sure. This is coming from a huge Bucs fan by the way.

Well Put!

Good article. Same old story, but very eloquent.

If the Bucs don't make it maybe a new defensive coordinator will not be enough for a coaching staff that has admitted time and time again that they could have done better this season.

Its been a long time since the Bucs have competed for the conference.....

I cant believe im sitting here at the end of the season wondering WHERE DID THE DEFENSE GO IN TAMPA........ I just dont get it, same players as the first 12 games and the last 4 have just been horrible...... What has happened can anyone please tell me.... I just dont understand how we collapse like this at the end of the year and its NOT THE OFFENSES FAULT..... AHHHHHH nothing more frustrating when you have a great first half of the seaon only to see your team not make the playoffs..............
