They were so close. They had hung on for so long, you'd watched the time ticking down and you'd just started to believe that the little Bucs could derail the mighty Ram offensive machine. Then came that TD pass to Ricky Proehl, the replay reversal of Bert Emanuel's "catch" followed and it was all over.
