Losing to the 2-9 Jaguars was simply not expected of any time let alone a defending champion but this inter- state loss really cemented the decline of the Buccaneer franchise from the heights of San Diego.  Not a lot of offense, no defense when it really counted and all in front of a national TV audience on a Sunday night.  . ``It's looking bleak,'' John Lynch said when asked about chances of making the playoffs. ``It may not be possible.''
