Ok so, these are the stats for the bucs going into last nights game at Carolina. 95.6 Rush yards allowed per game, 1 Rushing TD all year
Yesterday that same 4th ranked bucs defense gave up 299 Rushing yards. 299 and 4 rushing TD's.
Now im not gonna deny that the Panthers have two great runners but it looked as though Tampa just could not tackle multiple times a runner was hit or had multiple people hit them and they did not go down. I don't know if it was the cold or something but it did not look good at all. In the 4th Quarter Warrick Dunn had about 800 dropped passes.
Successes of the week:
Jeff Garcia- A Player who on paper looked pretty bad but managed the game well.
Antonio Bryant- He had a career day, and one spectacular catch but it was to bad they lost the game anyways.
Carnell Williams- He didn't play particularly well but he did get a nice touchdown.
Failures of the week:
Warrick Dunn- He did not run well and dropped multiple passes at key moments in the game.
The Buccaneers Run defense- It looked like it had no clue what it was doing, nnot a good game at all
