As impressed as i am with our D...I think we need to wait and see what we have a little later in the season. You really don't know much after 2 games. I must say it's looking very good so far!

The dude is all over the place and pancaking people, something he didn't do last year, esp in run defense.

Timmons is special.

Extra thought: Timmons, Farrior, Woodley, Harrison. Is there ANY better in the league? Scariest group in the NFL.


Has to be the best linebacking core in the league.

I know that IF is the biggest word in the dictionary, but what IF we still had Porter and was using Farrier as a backup?

Harrison,Porter,Woodly, and Timmons
HOLY S H I T

The D is playing out of its mind. It has to because the offense is simply pathetic at this point.

7 Turn overs and the O didn't put the game away...

RUN
RUN
PASS
PUNT

Good enough to beat two teams who were favored to beat us.

We just need to stay healthy.

I'm glad someone brought this up; the forecast for Sunday calls for 89 degrees. Depending on the heat index and if the thunderstorms hold off until late afternoon, and if the Bucs bring their A game, this could easily turn into a repeat of Week 2, especially if Batch has to deal with Hills and Scott missing every other blocking assignment.
