The 2003 season ended with a whimper and a cast of back-ups playing for the Buccaneers as they went down to a meek loss in Tennessee.  Brad Johnson threw three inteceptions and even a brief revival led by Shaun King went nowhere during the fourth quarter.  What had finished so superbly the previous year in San Diego would end so disappointingly here with many big-name Bucs including Warren Sapp, playing their final game.
