How Horace Copeland replaced Alvin Harper
Yes Bucs fans, it's a winning start
The defense does the ultimate bend-don't-break
The Bucs opened Sam Wyche's fourth season with a win on the road in Philadelphia thanks to a monster game from Horace Copeland and two TDs from Trent Dilfer. Little did anyone realise that would be half his total number of scoring passes on the season. Making his debut as the Eagles' offensive co-ordinator was a 33-year-old Jon Gruden.
