From the Crow's Nest

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman's bandaged thumb catches attention of New Orleans Saints | St. Petersburg Times
Stephen F. Holder - The Bucs have faced some scrutiny since Thursday's revelation that QB Josh Freeman sustained a minor sprain of his right thumb but was not previously included on the team's injury report.

'Foolish' penalties irk Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris | St. Petersburg Times
Rick Stroud - The record will show the Bucs have lost games to the Lions, 49ers and Bears this season. But the truth is they've beaten themselves.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Quincy Black has been hardened by life | St. Petersburg Times
Rick Stroud - Growing up poor on the south side of Chicago, Quincy Black learned to adapt. If the water was too cold for a shower, he'd warm it up in the coffee pot.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been very inconsistent | St. Petersburg Times
Gary Shelton - They are a good football team. Sometimes. (HansDat note: this sounds familiar...wonder whose inconsistencies will hurt whom this week?)

Reinforcements on the Way |
The bye week has apparently served the Buccaneers well, as they are looking forward to the possible returns of several key players from injury on both offense and defense.

Let the Race Begin |
The NFC South is as tight as it has ever been at the season’s midpoint, and Tampa Bay and New Orleans will start the second-half chase with their second meeting in just a few weeks
