Speaking of the Panties, didn't they used to have some trolls that hung out around here? Honestly, I can't remember the last time I saw a Panties troll on this board. Seems like it's all 'Team of the Week' trolls, St Anger, Buc-Man, & Jonny Buc, and that's it...

Tampa has a good record. That does not make them a good team. Think in terms of causation. Is it possible to be a very average team and have a good record?

When you look at our wins their wins, the gap between these two teams is much wider than two games. We are 3-2 against 5 teams that many consider Superbowl contenders (Saints, Eagles, Steelers, Ravens, Packers). Against similar teams the Bucs are 0-4 (Saints, Falcons, Steelers, Ravens).

Common Opponents: Falcons 212-139; Tampa 147-173

Common Opponent Summary: Falcons outscore Tampa by 65 and give up 34 fewer points. So much for the Bucs firm defense and the Falcons liability. Feel free to check my math below. I could have fat fingered something. Sorry for the formatting...looks better in the edit box!

+1 for the breakdown. But I think every division game is a potential dogfight. Even the Panthers have the potential to play strong defense and run the ball well.
