..... and none of them involve Josh Freeman or Mike Williams.

#10 Talib's pick 6
#7 Hayes' hit plus Ruud's interception
#2 Blount's 46 yard run

Freeman has his most complete game of the season and highest QB rating......ignored.

Mike Williams first 100+ yard reception game......ignored.

Mike & Mike mid-season awards, Bucs as surprise team and Raheem Morris and Bellicheck as best HCs.

Under the radar has vanished. The Bucs are in the spotlight.

This team still has issues, but they're easy to overlook when so many things are going right.

Atlanta has to feel a little uneasy right now.

It's nice being above the radar for the first time since... oh... 2005.  I'm still a bit worried about the Falcons; we've been annihilated by teams with winning records this season.

Blount will make a difference, and the whole team has gained confidence in themselves. A rematch would not produce the same result. The Bucs have impact players they haven't even used yet.

My point here is that the Bucs are much more than just Freeman/Mike Williams.

Having a running game is a tremendous advantage.  Olson looks a lot more competent when we're not facing 3rd and 8 on every set of downs.

This is what's meant by the term ''getting better as the season goes along.'' It's exciting and at some point we'll make the jump and beat elite teams too. Hopefully it happens now and not later.

I feel you, but the Falcons have struggled to win quite a few of those games, if we can establish the run game and control some clock I believe we can atleast keep the game close going into the 4th quarter.

The fowlgoons caught the Saints when they were struggling. They have not been a dominating force. They are strong at home, but not unbeatable. The Bucs have the weapons on offense, and one of the best defensive backfields in the league. The run D is improving and STs is a team strength. We can win this game. You can see the confidence building week after week.

I'm happy to see all the other plays getting attention, but honestly that Freeman throw is getting overlooked and I can't understand why. That was an absolutely ridiculous, 99% perfect throw that probably about 5 or less QBs could hope to make. Half of them couldn't even get it that far.
