The Oakland Raiders stunned many experts and fans like myself by scoring 17 unanswered points in the second half and sending Tampa Bay down to defeat and out of the playoffs. Michael Bush who is essentially a rookie after rehabbing all of last year from his broken leg suffered as a senior at U of L rocked the Buccaneer defense for 177 yards on 27 carries with two TD’s. Bush is an outstanding back who has speed and at 6 ft 1 inch and 245 one huge load for any defensive to bring down. I could not understand why he was not playing more with the ongoing injuries to McFadden and Fargas but maybe next year we can use him more and dump Fargas.
Same with interim coach Tom Cable, I thought he did a good job and should be given the head coaches job full time and let him finish what he has started. Shoot he even looks like what a Raider coach is supposed to look like,
The sweetest part of the game was at the end when Tampa Bay’s fans booed them off the field. What did they expect dropping 4 in a row in December.
