Bucs must upset Falcons to bounce back from a pair of disappointing losses

TAMPA, Fla. -- Well, this was unexpected. On paper, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be 2-0. On paper, they faced quarterbacks with little name recognition -- backup Derek Anderson and back-to-the-backup Austin Davis -- and the Bucs still lost to the Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams at home. That's not good. On paper, the Bucs should lose to the Atlanta Falcons at 8:25 p.m...

Backup QBs make their marks in Week 2

Fans often make the backup quarterback the most popular player on a team - until he has to play. Then they see the warts and wobbly passes and wonky decisions that made him a backup in the first place. On Sunday, though, three reserves, including a third-stringer, got their teams wins. There won't likely be immediate calls for Drew Stanton to take over for Carson Palmer in Arizona...
