It is regression because while we started off last year just as bad, we finished strong. We looked really good the majority of the time in that last 5 or 6 games. We showed improvement through out last year and we were a much better team at the end of the season than we were at the beginning, despite the injuries.

So I am not comparing the first 7 games this year to the first 7 last year. I am looking at how we finished last year compared to how we have started this year.....and it is obviously a regression. We have looked closer to the 2009 Bucs than the 2010 Bucs.

In our 4 wins we looked like the 2010 Bucs...In the 3 losses the 2009 bucs...this team is Jekyll and Hyde.....just like we were last year at this point. This bye week comes at a great time and hopefully we can duplicate our solid performace from the second half of 10' and at least be competitive and exciting to watch again on a consistent basis.


Hell, brees might not be as accurate as manziel.

I think we looked like the 2009 Bucs for three quarters of the Vikings game, and the Colts game.

The biggest difference is the sharp increase in turnovers and penalties. I would argue our defensive improvement has been a major reason why we're 4-3 instead of 2-5. We can be a good team but not good enough to withstand 8-10 penalties a game and 3-4 turn overs a game. When we protect the ball like we did last year we can beat top caliber teams such as the Saints.

I'm waiting to see if we can a game by 10 points or more.  I'd like to see us put away an opponent early and not get a a 4th quarter heart attack by barely beating any opponents.
