After limping all the way home from the West Coast six days earlier with a 48-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers sticking in the back of their minds, the Bucs looked more like the Saints.

You know, three on the road is hard; but the schedule makers didn't do us any favors scheduling a division rival and prime challenger to the division on the third leg of a three-week straight road trip...

Those guys have all got to be from Long Island, NY and work for ESPN

Not to mention the next time we play Tampa, they have a bye week to prepare for us.

Thanks NFL. We're gonna kick their ass anyway.

The NFL has a finger in the outcome of a season. Who gets to do this scheduling anyway? The Patriots front office???
