    Well like the villain in the movie, Chucky was killed off today. No word on what city will see a sequel. Maybe the sequel of the Chucky series should be call the A-Trains' Revenge... [​IMG] Here is the wire story...Buccaneers fire coach Jon Gruden, GM Bruce Allen

    1 hour ago

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) â€â€￾ The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired coach Jon Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen after the team collapsed following a 9-3 start and failed to make the playoffs. Gruden, who helped lead the Buccaneers to a victory over the Oakland Raiders in the 2003 Super Bowl, was Tampa Bay's coach for seven years before being dismissed Friday. Allen was general manager for the last five seasons.

    The Buccaneers were tied for first place in the NFC South heading into December, but finished with losses to Carolina and Atlanta on the road and San Diego and Oakland at home, where they had been 6-0. One more win would have landed a NFC wild-card berth.

    The 9-7 record this season left Tampa out of the playoffs for the fourth time in six years.

    Gruden's a caste slut all the way except for QB, and there he was a ridiculous "mad scientist," shuffling different white guys in and out of the lineup and keeping upwards of five and six on the roster at the same time. They actually played three whites on defense this past season but the o-line went sumo and I'll always remember Gruden for screwing Mike Alstott and various white receivers (Danny Farmer and Chas Gessner among others).


    The Bucs didn't do much for six seasons after winning the Super Bowl in Gruden's first year there,though the '07 division title was unexpected after several years being out of contention. You can be sure some team will throw a lot of money at Gruden to be their coach, though it may be too late now for '09 (Rams maybe?).
