Sure he needs to do a better Job, but it has been the defense that has been the downfall this year.
I live in Tampa, and I am not a Gruden lover, but who else is out there? He did win the division last season when nobody expected them to compete.
you just contradicted yourself... you are saying 2002 Bucs and Oakland were BOTH built by Gruden? Or you you mean Callahan took Gruden's Raiders, just like Gruden took Dungy's Bucs.
Gruden was great at calling plays for vets who can take advantage of tricky plays and formation shifts, but he is terrible as a coach and a decision-maker.
The only reason the Bucs won the division last year was our sissy schedule. Just to remind you, we barely beat Detroit (their winning TD was called a no-catch by replay), we beat Washington on a questionable 2-point conversion by Alstott (where he probably wasnt in), we LOST to the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers, and were SHUTOUT by the patriots.
