I also have been impressed, but next week will be an important game. It will be an excellent gauge for the team's progress. The Bucs are 4-4 and are playing for their season. If the Bucs lose, they go to 4-5 and drop a couple of games behind the WC contenders. If the Bucs win, they keep pace and keep their dream of the playoffs alive.
Next week will be a playoff game for the Bucs. If the Texans have indeed turned the corner, they will go into Tampa and beat the Bucs. If they beat the Bucs, they go into the bye 7-3 and begin the final stretch with confidence. If they lose, they go into the bye at 6-4 and have doubts.
