LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Colleague and friend Sal Paolantonio had a message for me this morning as we waited for Tampa Bay general manager Bruce Allen to talk.

"Put this in your blog,'' the television reporter said. "After not getting Brett Favre, the Bucs are going 5-11.''

That's a pretty harsh prediction for a team that went to the playoffs last season and I'm not sure I agree.
