    Interesting stat from TB game

    The time of possession was almost dead even in the loss to TB.

    TB: 30:34
    V: 29:26

    That is amazing considering the Vikings only rushed the ball 12 times. Considering this was only an 11 pt. loss, imagine the unbalanced time of possession if the Vikings were controlling the clock with a running game.

    That is good. Like ive said, its weird that our defense kept us in that game. Im so used to our offense keeping us in the game. Imagine when our offense gets rolling with the defense which IMO can play even better then they did sunday. We will be scary!

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    That's cuz in the second half we held them to virtually nothing with our D. I believe after the first half they were up almost 2 to 1 in TOP.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    And if anyone gives you shit about Caddilac Williams you say


    [size=18px]"I'LL KICK YOU IN THE NUTS"[/size]



    And say, he averaged 2.9 ypc, and only rushed for 77 yards until he broke that 71 yard TD run. So he really got shut down.

    Also tell them we picked off their terrible QB twice, and we beat ourselves on offense and there is no reason we should have lost that game.

    Yeah, we actually dominated the game except for the three stats that count, turnovers, big plays on offense and ... of course ... the score.

    Dominated?

    Total Yards: Bucs 345 Vikes 248...take away the 71-yarder by Caddy and it is still 276-248 Bucs in yards.

    So how can you say dominated?

    I dont think he means offensive domination. But with the D we would have been ranked 7th in the league (minus the 71). Granted it is only one week of play but if you seen how we gave up 400 yards to the bears last year in one game and 325 in the other (ranked 32 on O) you could prob. see the huge improvement on our D this year.

    Overall we only gave up 3 huge gains (minus the 71 yard run with 1:50 left in the game), all of which were on our bench warmers (brown and williams). Brown fell down on his 1st play in the game and gave up 30 some yards, williams missed a tackle (went for 41 yards) and gave up a pass (on 3rd and 9 for a gain of 14), which led to 2 scores. Now take those big plays away and you didnt get over 200 yards on our starting D, and that is with us turning the ball over 5 times.

    Overall I think we played really good D, I dont think caddy should get all the credit he is getting from the media. They make it sound like he ran all over us, but he only averaged 2.9 ypc through 58 minutes of gameplay. Overall I think what won the game for Tampa was the play of our Oline.
