Tampa Bay won the "Gruden Bowl" against the Oakland Raiders in 2002, but dysfunction ensued after the Super Bowl. There was reportedly a rift between coach Jon Gruden (pictured in 2005) and general manager Rich McKay. Moody wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson was deactivated for detrimental conduct in November. And the Buccaneers suffered a bunch of injuries. They lost their final two games and missed the playoffs at 7-9.
