Ok, so what is making this offense so weak? Is it Gruden's playcalling? The lack of running plays called? Gruden's obsession with game planning for Galloway? Or is Garcia and Griese's decision making? Or is it our receivers? And what happened to our tight ends last Sunday? They didnt do squat.

I'm so tired of watching this offense. I feel like Shaun King and Tony Dungy are still here!!! Seriously - Bert Emmanuel is Clayton, Graham is Alstott and Ike Hilliard can play Jacques Green and Warrick Dunn can play Warrick Dunn!!! Ugh

Im going with QB play all the way.

A defense on the other side that was called out all of last week and that happens to get paid to play as well?

....for the most pass attempts with 304.  The other team is NOLA. That's an average of 38 att per game.  But while the Saints are #1 in passing yards per game (314ypg), Bucs are #14 (220ypg).


The Chiefs defense is last in the league in rushing D, allowing 197 yds per game and 14 TDs on the ground.  We better run the ball, early and often.. No more shotgun passes on 3rd and less than 4yds

KC is allowing over 400 total yds per game and just over 27 pts per game.  They are 2nd to last in scoring offense, averaging a mere 14 pts per game.

No excuses this Sunday


Even this GARBAGE team can score 14pts...

another fun stat:

from today's trib:
Sunday's 172 yards marked the lowest output by the Cowboys during a winning effort in the history of a franchise that began play in 1960.


Just like the 05 playoff loss against the Redskins was the lowest game yardage output by a winning playoff team in NFL history

ugh, yeah that might have been worse since the 'skins scores all came from turnovers IIRC

This is true to an extent, but there's no excuse for the inept play in the red zone over and over.

Yeah, just hate it when people give the other team absolutely no credit or blame for what happened on the field that the Bucs played on...

the cowboys are giving up an average of 23 points a game and were without many key players.

As has been noted over and over again, receivers WERE getting open but the lame azz QB play couldnt get it to them.

   We found out our O'line isn't quite all Pro yet...

That is probably one of the best defensive efforts ever, win or lose, against the Cowboys. And at Texas Stadium, too... Ironic the defense laid a yellow carpet for the Cowboys to march to their only TD.
