As all football fans wait for today’s Super Bowl, Joe brings you, courtesy of the NFL and its Internet partner Hulu.com, a Super Bowl nine years ago that Bucs fans had keen interest in: the NFL’s No. 1 defense vs. the NFL’s No. 1 offense. Defense wins championships.

As a fan-base, we had a saying that went something like this, “we make good quarterbacks look really bad”. It wasn’t just our run against Garcia, McNabb and Gannon. We did it all year. We need a defense that gets back to that. That was fundamentals and talented players. I could see it happening.
Ahhhh, memories. So sweet.
And I still don’t see that Jerry Porter maintained possession of that ball on the TD in the back of the endzone. That was not a TD. Even with the BS TD, Bucs defense 21, Raiders offense 15.
Goose bumps man. Goose bumps. I miss those guys so much. Derrick Brooks, Sapp, Simeon, Ronde, Lynch and Alstott feel like family to me. Our current team could learn so much just from watching that video. Some of these guys we have could learn a thing or two about heart from those guys. If there was any thing to describe that team, it was HEART. They had it man.
Does the current Bucs roster have anybody on defense that could play with that Superbowl winning defense other than Rhonde. No way. That’s what’s killing this franchise no talent. See Pop Star/Glazers.
The 2001 superbowl champion defense team players were aquired when? 1999, 2000 No in reaility they started collecting them from 1996 no 1-2 year big plan to collect all the players needed to get to & play in the superbowl. I think the armchair / boosterchair / highchair GM’s need to take a moment and reflect on that. And before you get your pannties in a wad, coach Dungey didn’t draft 99 or 55 that was the coach before him, who chose a fast undersize LB from FSU and took the risk of drafting a fast alleged pot smoking DT from the U. Those where gifts in new coach’s players. We had those two and 47 play several years together before they became elite…. Give our new coach some time with players he inherited and a few draft choices of his own and we could be playing for something in Feb again.
