I agree, the offense needs help but I'm thinking the Raiders will go to rebuilding the rush defense because they're ranked 28th against the run. If they can't get someone in FA, they'll go to the draft because Sapp is old and Burgess is their only pass rusher.
That's true. Tommy Kelly looks ok, Burgess is good and the rest of the line needs to go. Sapp is wasted, he still can be effective, but not as an every down player... but I still think that they need to rebuild the offense first. The defense is easier to rebuild...

I saw the highlights and what made me take notice more than Gradowski's play was that horrible roughing the passer penalty on Cincy that most likely set the GW drive for the Bucs. I mean, how was that roughing the passer? It seemed as if Bruce was ducking to shake off the Bengals DE, not going down on purpose. And that wasn't even a big hit. I think that sequence helped the Bucs win this one. Don't know, that was just a horrible call. And as Marvin Lewis added, "I guess we have to cuddle him down."
That was a bullsh*t call, true, and we probably would have lost the game without it... so I'm happy it happened that way. Much appreciated.

Yep, that's why the Cards are the Cards... The most impressive choke job of the season so far... even bigger than the Eagles against the Giants.
Actually, the way Chicago won this game was really similar to way we won a lot of games during our Superbowl season. Well, except for the returns... we never return anything for a TD. Never.
btw, records already updated (as always, let me know if I did something wrong). What a week, pawno, 4-9... You need to stop picking Oakland to win any game.
