    Re: Post Game Thoughts/Observations

    Pre 2005:
    - Great offense
    - Horrible defense
    - Horrible special teams

    Now:
    - Anemic offense
    - Great defense
    - Good special teams

    Hasn't changed:
    - STILL can't control clock
    - STILL can't come back (ie 2 minute drill)

    Dejavu:
    - Daunte's fumbles
    - Abandoning the run
    - Michael Bennett

    It seems like everytime we improve on one area, something else suffers... however week 1 in the NFL is full of upsets. Let's hope we can get past this hump =(

    2nd Half Def

    Man the D looked good in the 2nd half. Other than that 71 yd run, which doesn't matter (2 yds would have won the game for them) Tampa's longest drive of the 2nd half was 10 yds.

    Overall, other than our nickels getting beat 3 times for big gains on 3rd and long and Rod Davis filling in for an injured Cowart and getting beat, Tampa got zipo. Man this D is going to be good (if Cowart can stay healthy)

    Which brings me to one question. With Winfield and Smoot shutting down their guys, why don't we give a little more help to B Will and Ralph Brown?

    And the refs sure hurt us twice. Caddy's fumble on the 1st drive that was blown dead and Wiggins mystery pass interference call. If they don't call that penalty, we run the ball at the end of the game and kick a short FG for a 20-17 win.

    Re: 2nd Half Def

    Ya, I hate lookin at games with the woulda coulda shoulda attitude....BUt you make some good points..Our defense was Key to our terrible offense staying in their. In the 4th we sent tampa on some key 3 and outs. Our defense can only get better as we gel more, become more comfrotable. and get everyone 100% healthy.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Re: 2nd Half Def

    The game answered 3 key question marks I had on the paper. How much has our defense improved? Do we have a reliable FG kicker who can kick over 40 yds? and who is going to punt consistently over 40+yds.?
    Man, I'm really liking that Kluwe kid.




    No matter how bad my life gets at least I m not a Packer fan.

    Re: 2nd Half Def

    yah our defense bailed us out more times that i can count. espically that last one that we got, when Ralph Brown made that solid tackle leaving the bucs like 2 inches short. i'm so pumped about our D and STs, the offense will catch up so i'm not that worried, just got to get the o-line all on the same page and let them gel.

    Thanks Josdin

    Not to be a downer, just a realist, but let's wait and see how they do outdoors.

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