Exactly one year ago today.

Figured I'd try something every few weeks this year and take a look back at the 2009 season and quickly compare it to the 2010 season.  No, I won't be bringing you videos of 1976, but in order to appreciate the growth of the team, and the whole "rebuilding" process that I have been talking about, it might do us some good to look back at the crapfest known as 2009. 

Exactly one year ago today, the Bucs were dismantled by the mighty (?) Buffalo Bills 33-20.  The Bills.  Yes, the team that struggles to do anything remotely positive (sorry Bills fans).  It was a rough game, especially considering the butt kicking Dallas gave us a week before that at home.  0-2 with no direction at quarterback, no running game, no offensive game plan, and a defense that looked blindfolded.

Fast forward a year and the Bucs are now 2-0, with a clear leader at quarterback, a running game that isn't flashy but is just productive enough to be functional, a game plan that include the run (who would've thought that would ever happen), and a defense that has figured out we aren't playing two hand touch. 

On year, two more wins, two less losses, and some big steps in rebuilding the franchise.
