This stat says it all

... Tampa Bay's Carnell "Cadillac" Williams rushed for 82 yards on 23 attempts. The Bucs are 8-0 when he carries more than 20 times.

I hope Gruden and Co. are aware of that. It couldn't be spelled out any more clearly to me. We don't have the youth on defense to have them out on the feild all day. We don't have the experience at QB to be airing it out all the time. And above all, when we run, we win.

When you talk about what the college football experience is all about, that's it. Auburn is the epitome.

The WCO and Gruden's variant of it will ALWAYS have the short passing game that is viewed as equivalent to the run. That's why a mobile QB with excellent accuracy is ideal for this scheme.

And the short passing game end sup getting substituted for the run even more when the OL isnt opening holes and we are constantly in 3rd and 8s all day.

Absolutely.  And ther'es absolutely NO correlation between leading in the second half and the number of runs you call.  PLEASE let's fire Gruden and make WDE our coach!

The Bucs are undefeated when the QB takes a knee at the end of the game. So, we should just do that every game and we'd never lose!

Or, maybe we take a knee because we're ahead, just like we run the ball because we're ahead.

Personally I agree with you dude! He was gashing them in the second half. We had a couple of thid down tries ( third and 2, third and four ) . Both times he takes him out of the game and once threw to Alstott for a loss. The Eagles were not stopping Cadillac. To run the hell out of him like the beginning of last year and now use him sparingly...I don't get it. He wants the ball and the more that Gru runs him it opens up everything else. But it's Gru's world!!!

They've also never lost when they've scored more points than the other team...

Or when Matt Bryant kicks a field goal over 51 yards...

I don't think they've lost while my good luck shirt is in the wash either.  It was wet last week, and I didn't wear it this week to keep the mojo up...
Sucks to not be wearing Bucs colors on sundays....
