I was pretty damned depressed by the disgusting showing from the Steelers vs. the Browns on Sunday night, but if I were a Bucs fan I would be suicidal after that Colts comeback. They seem to be handling it well, though.
Just to clear something up- I hear a lot of people grousing about the Simeon Rice call at the end of the game that gave the Colts a second shot. First, the Bucs did not deserve to lose the game after that hideous letdown (21 pts in five minutes- c’mon). Second, by rule, the call on the field was correct:
16. A defender who takes a running start from beyond the line of scrimmage in an attempt to block a field goal or point after touchdown and lands on players at the line of scrimmage.
As my brother stated, you can argue that the rule is stupid (ala the ‘no-fumble’ rule that cost the Raiders vs. the Patriots two years ago), but the call on the field was correct. He ran several yards, jumped, and landed on people- precisely the definition of leaping.
