    NE will win this game but if the score is close with something like 24-21 it would not surprise me although I expect a 21 point win

    The Bucs had a good shot to beat Carolina last week but found a way to lose despite having played with heart for 3 quarters - Seemed like they gave up on D after coming back to tie the game once Delhomme made a few good passes.

    I'd say the Patriots are considerably better than the Panthers, but that's just me...

    Well the Eagles were considerably better than the Raiders last sunday too


    Any given sunday,like Berman says "Thats why they play the game"

    On another hand I have no idea why St. Louis will show up to play Indy this week - that could be a 59-0 carbon copy,The Rams are only a shade better than a top NCAA team at this point :)

    The Bucs are going to shoot ourselves in the foot more than a couple of times (like the Eagles did) in order to win on Sunday and I can't see that happening. Short of a catastrophe, we are going to win.

    Not quite on topic, but still...this thread needs some classic quotes from the Bucs original HC, John McKay!

    Probably the most famous:

    One I hadn't heard before, but I think it just became my favorite:

    Coach Morris should probably take some notes! :D

    I really see no problem with fans of a bad team to be thinking they will win this week,Thats cool by me

    Better than some fans alienating thier team when they are down - Pats fans would be more likely to jump ship more than most other teams fans if they were to suck in a few years,The more you win,the more spoiled your fans get.

    Didn't the Falcons have a decent tight end? His name escapes me. I don't recall him doing much against the Pats.

    The Bucs are giving up 28 points a game on the average over 6 games to offensive juggernauts like the Redskins, and scoring 14 points on the average against a fairly weak schedule. I saw the pre-game for the Bucs four weeks ago before the Giants game, and one of their biggest supporters (local media) sounded like he couldn't make a credible argument as to how the Bucs might beat the Giants.

    I could see the Titans remembering their 13-3 selves and therefore posing a threat. The Bucs have been bad going back into last season, and do not seem to be improving. Short of filling the Patriots' water bottles with a fine English stout and getting the entire team liquored up during the game, I would be flat out amazed if the Bucs manage to make this game interesting.

    The one player I always feared when the Patriots played Tampa Bay was Mike Alstott who almost always had great games against us,Alstott was a stud FB,The team never really filled his position well after he retired.

    Galloway was always a scare to play against when he was 30 years younger :) - and I always liked the way Warrick Dunn played which was hard nosed running for a little guy.

    I don't either. The funniest reponses were from those fans who knew that the Bucs didn't stand a chance outside of a miracle.

    That miracle would be in the version of turnovers,If the Patriots protect the rock they will not lose but fumbles and interceptions always give the inferior opponent opportunities to win. - Like I said,no turnovers by the Pats and they win by about 21

    I agree. Those guys could play (I remember in 2005 the game against the Bucs was a big deal and I was very happy when the Pats thrashed them).

    The Bucs were good . . . once upon a time.

    Also Firing Gruden who I think is STILL one of the best HCs in the game this decade was beyond stupid and a big mistake.

    Guarantee you if Gruden were HC this team would have AT LEAST 1 or 2 wins by now.

    It will be nice to see a qb that hands off a zillion times. Haven't seen one of those in a while. I love it when the Pats go up against caretakers, they make my afternoons alot more relaxing.

    I kind of laughed, but I'm seriously questioning if the OP on the Bucs board has some sort of mental illness.

    I mean, it's one thing to hope for a victory. Or to think you might have a chance (if a million things go your way). But to openly declare victory like that is just...sad.

    I really loved the bit about the Pats weakness of covering TEs. Someone ask Tony Gonzalez how easy it was...

    So I spend every January and Febuary 40 miles south of Tamper, deep in Bucs country. In past seasons discussing football with the indiginous tribes this is what I get when discussing playoffs, "Bucs aren't in it" and "Brady? Don't like him; he wins too much" Go figuah.
