Defensive statistics have come a long way since the beginnings of the NFL but they are still a strange part of the game. Offensive statistics are easily seen and can be added up by almost anyone watching as they are as simple as the amount of yards run or thrown and the variations.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a storied history and but it has been storied for all of the wrong reasons.

Before the 1990s the league remained a running back driven league with teams looking to take over on the ground. In the 1990s it was still running back driven but all of a sudden new quarterbacks that could take over a game were coming into focus.
