This Just In..winning ugly still preferred to losing pretty

In a world where we look for perfection in every corner, the Bucs cant win: Except on the field! Bucs fans will have to wait another week to win pretty, because Tampa Bay won the game just a few second into the game with Bobby Rainey's 80 yard TD run that was the longest run of any kind in Bucs history!

Warrick Dunn, Ricky Bell, Mike Alstott, Earnest Graham, Michael Pittman, Jerry Eckwood, Lars Tate, and Cadillac Williams could not do what 4th string running back Bobby Rainey did. No Buc had ever run so far on one run, especially for a TD, it beat Pittmans 78 yard TD run against KC in 2004, but that wasnt the last attempt to rewrite the record book.

The offense continues to fall asleep after its halftime break, but the defense is starting to take over the Bucs, especially the back 7. No team takes the ball away like the Bucs defense, tops in the NFL with interceptions. To say the secondary has been remade would be the greatest understatement. By adding Goldson, Banks and Revis to secondary that finished dead last last year, the Bucs have reinvented themselves.

The offense however is a different story. A wall they to have appeared to have run into, especialy QB Mike Glennon, who finished with abnormaly putrid numbers, especially if you take away Vincent Jackson's TD catch. With the Bucs draft pick slowly fading away (they would pick 9th if the draft were today) Glennon appears to be the answer defacto.
