One week after looking like a real good football team, the Buccaneers crashed down to earth against the 49ers. And out of all teams, the Niners?! In a game marked by inefficiency on both sides of the ball, Tampa Bay let Frank Gore run all over them and they made Alex Smith actually look like a real good quarterback. With New Orleans on the horizon, it looks as though Tampa may be destined for a 3-3 record and a major slip down the NFL Power Rankings. —Jose Martinez
