C'MON TAMPA BAY. YOU CAN DO IT!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had another embarrassing loss on Thanksgiving. The 38-10 whooping they received from the Dallas Cowboys has left them with a 3-10 record. If they lose their games against Chicago, Atlanta, and Seattle, they could end up with their worst season since 1991. I really hope they pull off a miracle in the coming weeks. Otherwise, you're gonna have a lot of season ticket holders considering selling their tickets for good.

Tampa Bay Bucs Skin Washington!

How about that second half! And that final quarter. Way to go, Gradkowski! You, too, Cadillac! The losing streak ends and Tampa Bay will have some mo going into Thursday’s game in Dallas. (Which they’ll need, considering that the Cowboys are riding pretty high after busting the Indianapolis Colts’ winning streak.) Wouldn’t an upset there give us something great to be thankful for on Thanksgiving?

Bucs Get to Put Redskins' QB to the Test

The Washington Redskins have decided to put their team in the hands of a new quarterback, and Jason Campbell will make his first NFL start here. Campbell is no stranger to this corner of the world, having set the record for wins (31) and appearing in four college bowl games while at Auburn. I hope we make him feel welcome and also give him a serious lesson about the difference between the NCAA and the NFL. (Alas, that's a lesson our rookie QB Bruce Gradkowski has been absorbing all too well.)

If Miami Can Hunt Down the Bears...

There's another NFL team in Florida that has caught up with Tampa Bay to arrive at this point in the 2006 season at 2 wins, 6 losses. That would be the AFC's Miami Dolphins, who had to upset -- on the road -- the formerly undefeated Chicago Bears.

We didn't manage a win against the buoyant New Orleans Saints yesterday, but I think we could copy Miami and slay the Carolina Panthers in their Bank of America Stadium den. That would make for exciting Monday Night Football, don't you think?
