Why was HOUSTON so different from NEW ORLEANS? It’s an F Word!

Hoping for a lift, the Bucs were let down on defense after the last missed FG. They must mature past that. I’m hearing a lot of chatter on the radio waves about how the Bucs lost so bad to the Houston Texans, so much that I have to wonder which channel they were watching. Could it be some fans think the fish helmets are Tampa Bays Team? Or “Bay Area” meaning San Francisco...
