The Tony Dungy era began with five straight losses and a 1-8 mark entering November. Typical old Bucs. But then something strange happened - the Bucs started winning. An overtime win over the Raiders led the team to five wins in their final seven games. The Mike Alstott-led offense and Monte Kiffin's first season as defensive co-ordinator saw the Bucs began to turn the corner. At long long last. Even ESPN began to start calling them "The Bucs and not the Yucks" after their road win in San Diego.
