ON THIS DAY - SO CLOSE …. BUT SO FAR 23 January 2000 -  Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6  St.Louis Rams 11 Click here for the detailed game screen, pictures, statistics and video highlights This was the second time the Buccaneers had reached the NFC Championship game and once again, just like the 1979 season, the Rams were waiting for them and held Tampa without a touchdown and hence also one game short of the Super Bowl.   And here comes the annual gnashing of teeth over the Bert Emanuel play near the end of the game which unfortunately was the right call and did not “cost the Bucs victory”.  But it is still annoying all the same.
THE 2016 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Nearly 1,000 Buc fans from around the world voted in our 2016 awards and the first winner to be revealed is for the Offensive Player of the Year, Mike Evans.  This was one of the closest awards but Mike Evans took 49% of the votes compared to the 47% for Jameis Winston and hence the third-year receiver wins his second title in three years.  The only other player to receive multiple votes was Cameron Brate.   THE PREVIOUS WINNERS 2016 Mike Evans 2015 Doug Martin 2014 Mike Evans 2013 Vincent Jackson 2012 Doug Martin 2011 Davin Joseph 2010 Josh Freeman 2009 Cadillac Williams 2008 Antonio Bryant 2007 Jeff Garcia 2006 Joey Galloway 2005 Cadillac Williams 2004 Michael Clayton 2003 Keenan McCardell 2002 Brad Johnson 2001 Keyshawn Johnson 2000 Warrick Dunn 1999 Mike Alstott 1998 Mike Alstott 1997 Mike Alstott 1996 Mike Alstott 1995 Errict Rhett 1994 Errict Rhett 1993 Craig Erickson 1992 Reggie Cobb 1991 Reggie Cobb 1990 Gary Anderson
