"They were really frustrated," San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis said. "I mean, I felt like they gave up. That's what I saw. I was trying to tell, I think it was Barber, 'Get your guys, get your guys. Y'all got to play harder. Y'all got to play harder.' "

Don't worry, the players play hard at the end of the season for Raheem.    It just seems they don't at the start of the season.

Your link doesn't work so there no way to tell if this was in the first quarter or with 2 mins left in the fourth quarter.

I see nothing wrong w/ packing it in when you're down late in the game -

There are other battles to win later in the season.  You just have to move on.

   They were looking ahead to New Orleans. If they win that game, they'll be atop the NFC South...

In a lot of sports, players let up if they get so far behind that it would be impossible to come back.  Sometimes the opponent lets up and doesn't run up the score.  Sometimes its best to guard against injury, and back off.  I have no problem w/ the Bucs doing that - as long as it wasn't early 3rd quarter.

injuries are more likely to happen when you aren't playing hard.

It's too bad the Colts didn't give up in 2003 like the Bucs did Sunday.

I've heard that a lot....maybe that's why so many Buc players were being carted off the field.
