I can't believe more people haven't been discussing the season-opening popcorn fart in 2005 since Fiz brought it up in the OP. We were a much better, more talented team than the Saints* (who were also one of the worst teams in the league that year) and we couldn't beat them. Then two weeks later we lose to a Dolphins team led by Gus Frerotte, scoring 27 points on our defense. Sandwiched in between those two blunder games was a win against the defending super bowl champion Patriots where we limit Brady and the offense to 10 points.

This was my reaction to the first quarter of the 2005 season

talib has done a very, very good job against steve smith over the past couple of seasons. has he gotten a touchdown against them since the monday night game in 2008? (maybe one, i think in 2009, but that was against some dipshit nickel corner, and even i could see the mismatch from the stands, and even matt moore was able to make the TD throw on the quick slant.)

that was 2010 on a 4th and short play. the bucs sold out against the run and yeah it was a quick slant that smith took to the house.

don't forget entering the fourth quarter up 19 against a poo green bay packers team on monday night football only to watch them score 16 unanswered points before we finally got a stop and won by 3.

tampa secondary scares the poo out of me. they're going to surprise people. i'm not even remotely comfortable going into this game.

It depends on how much Cams accuracy and discipline has improved. If Steve Smith is healthy we will have targets for Cam.I think the underneath routes will be there if we take what the defense gives

Forgotten fact: That game was actually played on the surface of the sun.

Besides losing the SB '08 was the worst for me... I was sure we were going to make a deep run into the playoffs and maybe even win the SB. The stars seemed to be aligned for us, we had 9-7 Arizona at home on a rainy night.

That loss and the announcement from Peppers the follow Saturday were devastating, biggest swing from a high to a low that I've experienced outside of losing the SB.

The Green Bay monday nighter in 2004 was one of the low points. I'll never forget smitty rolling around the ground with his leg broken. That season ended almost as soon as it began.
