The first 10 years of the rivalry has been marked by aggressive play that lasts long after the whistle. During that time, the Buccaneers have accumulated 141 penalties for 1,208 yards. The Falcons have fared slightly better with 113 penalties for 966 yards. Of course, the majority of pushes, shoves and punches go unflagged.

2003 Sets Precedent

In 2003, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers set the tone for the years to follow. In the two games against Atlanta, Tampa Bay racked up 17 penalties including four face-masks, unnecessary roughness, roughing the kicker, and roughing the quarterback calls.

The Atlanta Falcons were not innocent victims. Atlanta Falcons LB Arte Ulmer was ejected during the second half of the two teams' second meeting for unnecessary roughness. This back and forth would continue no matter either teams' record.

 

Allen Rossum's Eyeball

In 2005, there was a controversial incident when visiting Tampa Bay swarmed Atlanta's kick returner Allen Rossum. Rossum emerged from the pile holding holding his eye. A melee ensued, and the Falcons were penalized.

Later in the game, Falcons' linebacker Demorio Williams exacted revenge by poking Tampa Bay RB Cadillac Williams in the eye.Two other Falcons would also be fined for offenses in that game.


 

Welcome To Hate Week

In 2008, Atlanta's rookie quarterback and rookie head coach got their first taste of the rivalry. Tampa Bay befuddled Matt Ryan and repeatedly knocked him around. Mike Smith got himself noticed when he had to explain to the referee that Tampa Bay committing two separate penalties did not mean that they were offsetting.

Smith's red-faced explanation was quite a spectacle from the then relatively unknown coach.

It's hard to hate any NFCS team.

bullshlt..... that smug look is easy to HATE



I understand the HATE for ATL...but Mike Smith is smug? That's a new one. Seems like a "HATE"-fueled reach.... ;)

There is no reach there. Dude always has that "i know something you don't know" look on his face and i HATE it!!

Like what? How to have 5 straight winning seasons... ;)

C'mon now, we know careers are made in the post season. If that guy doesn't do something this year, he may soon be unemployed.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Isn't that a Marty Schottenheimer quote?

No, no no. The BEST team isn't the team you have a rivalry with. It's the one who gets your blood up every time you play them. The one where you're guaranteed at least a couple shoving matches and maybe a punch or two thrown.

By far in the NFC South, that team for the Bucs is the Panthers. The teams hate each other. Always have since they were put together in a division.

Wasn't Marty fired after a 14-2 season? Something tells me Smith will suffer a similar fate.

It would be good for us if they fired Smith. They would plunge right back into mediocrity.

I think they are headed there, with or without Smith.  A lot of older players on that team. Signing Steven Jackson shows they are going for all the marbles NOW.

Well, only three more years of putting up with Gonzo...


Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

I wouldn't think that your favorite team with your favorite QB would concern you...
