Congratulations Mr. Brooks

Lost in yesterday's game is that it was Derrick Brooks 183rd consecutive start for the Bucs. Brooks ties a franchise record set by Paul Gruber, who would be a lock for the Hall of Fame if had played on some better teams (Gruber not Brooks). Brooks will likely set the record with a start against the Cowboys on Thursday.

Ronde Barber also has a chance to set a Buccaneer record if he intercepts one more pass. Barber currently has 31 interceptions.

One Buc who will definitely not break any records this season is Simeon Rice. Before his injury Rice had a shot at setting the franchise sack record for the Bucs, which is held by Buc Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon (78.5). Rice currently has 69.5 sacks in a Bucs uniform, but there is the possibility that Rice will not get the chance to improve on that mark. Unless Rice agrees to lower his team-high cap figure there is a good chance Rice will be cut.
