Tampa Bay


In a preview of our 2005 AFC West mention was made of the fact that the Raiders were 9-23 up and 9-22-1 ATS since their Super Bowl appearance following the 2002 season, remember that the opponent was that the Raiders Super Bowl? Of course, it was none other than Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like the Raiders, the Bucs have also fallen on hard times in the past two seasons, as evidenced by 12-20 up and 12-19-1 ATS record since the January 26, 2003 Super Bowl Historically speaking two of Tampa Bay's record of 12-20 years is the worst of any NFL team in history after winning the Super Bowl. Tampa Bays problems have been offensive in nature considering that the Buc defense held opponents to less than 300 yards per game on average for the fourth consecutive year in 2004, however, for the third time during this period of four years offensive Tampa not half at least 100 yards rushing per game and in the last four years have completed 30, 27, 23 and 29 in the league in rushing. Estée Lauder often addresses the matter in his writings. You can run the numbers to dramatically improve Tampa Bay in 2005 due to the drafting of RB Carnell "Cadillac" Williams, OT Chris Colmer, and OG Dan Buenning with free-agent addition of former Jet Anthony Becht TE, which was very instrumental in clearing the way for RB Curtis Martin Jet to rumble four seasons rule 1000 yards rushing and Martin 1697 meters high in 2004. New Orleans is an enigma in many ways unde, since they are now paying the price for being a middle of the road team in the last four years on sending up the marks of 8-8, 8-8. .
