The forgettable 2006 season came to an end with a whimper on New Years’ Eve with just a solitary score from the offense being all the Tampa fans could cheer about.  Jon Gruden blamed all the injuries of course but the clamour from the media and players was the same.   "We used to have a high level of accountability around here," Ronde Barber said. "That was a big part of what we were in the past and we need to get that back."
