Do you guys realize going into tonight's MNF game, Tampa Bay is ranked #1 for points scored against, and #5 in Total Yards allowed?
Jacksonville (3 games) and Patriots (3 games) have fewer points allowed.

Manning will adjust that a little next Sunday.

It probably will be short lived, but what about the rest of the schedule?  Our schedule will get easier if you believe it in the second half of the season.  But then again, in the NFL you can't count out any team.  Look at Cleveland.  Wow!  They've been playing competitively since getting rid of Frye.

Week to Week guys....and this week is going to be very tough to get a victory...but in years past our defense has proved to be high octane offense killers.

Just not ones that practice against the Tampa 2 everyday.....wait a second, the Rams did.

1sparkybuc.  You don't go by points allowed, you go by pts/game and yards/game.  If you do that, then his rankings are correct.

Obviously a team that has played 1 fewer game should have less points(talking about good Ds here.)

When a team leads in points allowed. That is the true barometer of how good a team is, IMO.
23 seconds from a shutout versus the Panthers.



The BUCS are gonna surprise people this year!
