Tampa Bay Buccaneers Make History With Youth Movement

Just one quick note here before tuning into Monday Night Football to see if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playoff chances are bolstered by a New Orleans loss tonight against the Falcons. On Sunday, the Buccaneers easily dismantled the Seattle Seahawks, 38-15, to improve to 9-6 and guarantee a winning record. The Bucs, who have started 10 different rookies, are the first team since the 1970 merger (excluding the 1987 strike season) to start at least 10 different rookies in a single season and have a winning record. Remarkable stuff from Raheem Morris, his staff, and the whole crew of players who have done their part in turning the Buccaneers franchise around in a hurry.
