I think the Bucs could have played the Ravens close. I don't think we are as far away as some here believe. Flacco was every bit as maddeningly inconsistent as Freeman was up til his contract year. Guess who is in a contract year next year.
Im not saying we will win the Super Bowl, but Freeman can grow up very fast; we shore up the secondary, and everyone gets healthy, we are gonna be in it next year. Go Bucs!
