you know its possible.

I have to look up stats of the last 5-6 years.

in order of teams that have beaten us in that time period probably looks something like this:

Carolina
Tampa Bay
Atlanta

Meaning Carolina has beaten us the most in that time span, followed by Tampa, and Atlanta is at the bottom.

stats dont lie.

Bucs may be tougher at home. They also may be reeling from the loss for a while.

Seems like coaching karma.

Thanks for dropping by. Good luck.

I wouldn't be one bit surprised if it wasn't us and Carolina fighting it out for 1 and 2, and the dirty birds struggling to stay ahead of Tampa.

I just don't think Atlanta has the Mojo to overcome a handful of tough losses. It's a reflection on their coach IMO.

I cant make much out of the Falcons defense in week 1, but if their O-line is going to be this problematic, they may be in trouble, they going to run into better pass rushes than what they saw today, this was close only for the fact it was a division game.

I felt bad for Lavonte David. It's tough to watch a grown man cry.

But I'm not gonna lie, I was happy the Jets won.

Re: Greetings from Tampa Bay, again

Congratulations on the win.

Feels exactly like last week for us.

Our coach played not to lose, and so of course we lost in the final seconds.

I'd wish you good luck the rest of the season but you ARE our division rivals, so I'll just wish you an injury-free season the rest of the way and let the rest sort itself out.

Glad to see your secondary has recovered from the Eric Wright experiment and moved forward, ... NFC South is gonna' be tougher then I thought this season and I want to see how you guys stack up vs Can'tlanta & Carolina. The Bucs are definitely not a walk-in-the-park.

Your QB is playing like he doesn't want to be there, no motivation, and it might be affecting the lockerroom ... just a hunch.

Are you really in the West Indies? Lucky dog, .
