Yeah, Rattay's ONE touchdown in the red zone vs. the #31 defense was REAL impressive....NOT.

The goober rag-writers at it again.

And the 3 4th quarter TD's vs. a team with a 24-3 lead was nice.  Then when we had a chance to win it, where was Rattay then?

More ad nauseum.

Rattay isn't the savior, but there is no doubt that we should have gone to him sooner rather than later considering how awful Grads was playing.

We should have gone to him sooner than we did. I honestly felt sorry for Gradkowski being in there the way he was, it was like punishment almost...

NO!

In starting Grads, we were able to get a glimpse of what he was capable of.  rattay is not in our future plans PERIOD so why start him...

Ratty needs to leave so people hear can STF up about him.  He is worthless, He is pathetic, and we should want no part of him...

Start Rattay against the Ravens or NE or another good team on our schedule and you guys would be calling for his head too!

In reviewing the Cleveland game, Rattay didn't look very good at all, despite the victory.

haven't had a chance to see the game yet, but looking at the stats and the drives that were made, it certainly seemed like our offense would've looked no better than it has all year if we'd played a respectable defense.

But compare his performance to Gradkowski's performance in the Bears game.     That tells it all.

What difference does it make with playing Rattay instead of Gradkowski?

With Rattay, were a 6 or 7 win team, still not a playoff team because we simply arent the same defense we have been in the past. Atleast by playing Gradkowski we know where he is at and what he needs to do to improve, rather than let him be a 6th round pick who never gets a chance other than some preseason snaps.

It tells all about some very limited action. It doesn't tell anything about anything beyond that game.

Who says Grads couldn't have done well against a prevent defense and not 8 or  9 in the box.

IMO, Rattay has shown what he is-a mop up Qb at best. Certainly not a starter.

It appears now , if Rattay would have been the number 2 QB the Bucs would be in the playoffs. It's not fair to Monday morning QB but seems like a bad move starting Grads over Rattay.

Hey, four more wins and we would have been right in the playoff race! NFC is weak.

You know it is hard to win in the NFL period. Just look at the upsets that happend this past Sunday and that will tell it all. Didnt the bears almost lose the the lions? I think so, so what deos that say about thier defense? Ratty scorched the browns. he threw one bad pass and it got picked off big deal. every QB throws a bad pass. we were in the red zone 4 times and came away with 6 points. that is is oonly thing that i can say bad but its not just on him at that point.

Gruden went for it on forth down and he got stuffed because the o-line got no push up front. the other one was the pick where he says the ball slipped out of his hands. Now Ratty has played 6 quaters and the offense has scored 50+ points. that to me says he playing to good ball either way you like it.

I know it is some of you that hate him but give the mad credit he's making plays and keepin the offense on the field. Did anyone notice that we didnt even punt the ball unitil late second or even the third quater?
