Bucs... oh Bucs... My lament:
Finally score some points, finally play some defense... manage a 1 point lead with under 2:00 left...
3rd and about 5 - the Panthers have used all their time outs... a 1st down wins the game...
Deep to Galloway!?
I'm as big a Gruden fan as there is, but the people in Tampa calling for his head got some serious ammunition on that one... maybe Galloway was just supposed to draw double coverage off of the underneath guys and Simms threw it to him anyway... who knows.
Next thing you know we're punting - and Kasay (great for my fantasy team...) seemed to have a lock on fieldgoals over 50 yards. a little over a minute later it's over.
And Chris Simms is out for probably 2 months... ruptured spleen (removed last night), happened during the game... and the kid kept playing. Wow.
Oh geez yeah, the fork has already been stuck in the Bucs. 0-3 and they have a tough

Looking at their schedule, let's assume their going to beat the Redskins and Browns, and let's say they surprise 2 good teams at most.
With that, I project a 4-12 season.
