  • this was a good superbowl

    in this superbowl it was a defensive vs offensive super bowl the leagues number one defense vs the leagues number one offence and like the saying goes defence is what wins the championships and that is how it went the raiders started to score but the bucs just total shut them down the rest of the game they were intercepting passes and just scoring and the bucs wanted it more then the raiders and got them ther first superbowl win for the bucs and a big loss for raider fans .warren sapp and simmion rice played really well in that game.moreless
  • I usually don't root for the Bucks, but 48-21!?! Insane!!

    Like I said, I'm not at all a Tampa Bay Bucs fan, 'cause I like the Cowboys, Jaguars, Texans, etc.: all those, and watching a team like the Bucs bores me to death, kinda. But when a team that went: 3-13, or 4-12? Last season, it's surprising to see them win this Super Bowl, and by a big blowout like this, 48-21 over the Oakland Raiders. According to this Super Bowl book I own, it looks like Derrick Brooks made quite an impressive performance in Super Bowl XXXVII. The Raiders might of scored first, and the Bucs may of only scored 3 points in the first quarter, but after that, it was ALL Tampa Bay. 17 points in the second quarter, 14 points in the third quarter, and 14 points as well in the fourth quarter. Incredible.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Tampa Bay Coach Jon Gruden: This is a great defensive team. Against the forward pass, they say bring it on. That's what they like to defense. We can rush the passer and play pass defense.

      Tampa Bay Coach Jon Gruden: By God, his is Tampa Bay's night. We're World Champions and we're going to enjoy it.

    • Tampa Bay Safety John Lynch: Going down as one of the greatest defenses wasn't one of our primary objectives, winning the Super Bowl was. But we're a prideful group and we've always said you've got to win a world championship. We'll leave that for you guys to judge, but I would think we'd have to be one of the great defenses of all time.

      Tampa Bay Safety John Lynch: Coming from where we came from as an organization and all the ridicule and heartbreak, and the evolution of a playoff team and everybody saying we couldn't take that next step. But we took that next step and we're world champions and nobody can ever take that away.

    • Oakland Quarterback Rich Gannon: Obviously, it was not our night. I give a lot of credit to the Buccaneers, they played a great game. We were just absolutely terrible. It was a nightmarish performance. I think we had only three first downs in the first half and we were just completely out of rhythm. We just couldn't generate much offense.

      Oakland Quarterback Rich Gannon: Turnovers absolutely killed us. It was a very, very long night for the Raiders.

    • Tampa Bay Owner Malcolm Glazer: "1 want to thank Coach Gruden for what he did. He came from heaven and he brought us to heaven. We were waiting for the right man and the right man came - Jon Gruden.
