With a back up quarterback, and Michael Turner hurt, Atlanta was ripe for an upset by the under performing Buc’s. Tampa Bay led until the last play of the game when Chris Redmond hit Roddy White on a 5 yard slant pass to put Atlanta head with 23 seconds on the clock.
For most of the game the Bucs outplayed Atlanta sacking Redmond five times, one turnover, and a blocked punt.
Buc’s fans did not know what to think when earlier this week the Buc’s management basically fired defensive coordinator placing Raheem Morris in charge, who switched back to the vaunted cover two defense.
Now 1-10 the Bucs are insured a strong first round pick, too bad there are no coaches in the draft, since this seems to be the biggest need to fill.
Josh Freeman, had a total reversal from last weeks game at New Orleans where he was coming off a four turnover performance, Freemans final numbers were a respectable 20 of 29 for 250 yards. Kicking although much improved was key in the loss when Connor Barth missed a 51 yard field goal with 2:30 left on the clock giving Atlanta the ball on the 51 yard line giving Atlanta another chance to keep there record perfect in the Georgia Dome.
