One of the great comeback games in Bucs history and so far two games have been chosen to air on NFL Network as part of the best games of the week.
Houston vs. Jax (IMHO the best game of the week) and....
Dallas vs. Cleveland (IMHO not as good as our game). Dallas of course has a huge national following and seems to get spots in the top three games of the week frequently.  It will be interesting to see which is the third and final game picked:
Chicago vs. SF? Pitt vs. Baltimore? Indy vs. NE? Or the Bucs vs. Carolina.

NFL just had about a 10 minute interview with Dallas Clark.

Outside of the ending, and the fact we are Bucs fans, that was not a great game of football.

It was 14-10 with 8:55 in the 2nd Qtr.  It was then 21-10 with 6:00 in the 4th Qtr.

It was probably the best comeback, but certainly not one of the best games.  In fact, they probably helping us out by not showing it.

It's a joke. But it is what it is. If they beat the good teams they will become more "popular". As in they will be more talked about because they have to talk about them. If they keep it up and win some games that people say they shouldn't, they will get more talk. However big markets like Dallas and NY will always get talk. Bottom line is they bring in the most money. Tampa will always take a back seat when it comes to media talk. Unless they have to. If they keep it up. They will.

i know most dislike the show, but ESPN First Take has also been talking about freeman and Bucs regularly the last week or so.

So far given the shaft again by NFL Network

Not concerned. Due respect goes to teams who've shown they can win consistently and the Bucs have a ways to go.

On "Gameday Final" everyone except Michael Irvin picked the Bucs as the team that will emerge from the potential NFC wildcard teams. Irvin picked Dallas, of course. Everyone on GF was impressed with the Bucs win, and in particular with Freeman to VJax for the tying TD and Freeman's winning toss to Clark. The comment was made (not exact, but very close): "Folks, we're witnessing a talented young team coming of age right before our eyes".

A tough road ahead, but I don't think too many teams want to play the Bucs right now. Love the fight, confidence and swagger in this team right now.

Actually, we are winning more consistently than Dallas, so I'm not buying that argument.

Just imagine how much national coverage our young Bucs will get if we manage to beat ATL this week, then go up to Denver and hand Peyton Manning's Broncos an L.

I'd have this team as a lock for the playoffs then. It would be awesome to see.
