Tony Dungy shares a long hug with Mike Alstott after his Buccaneer Ring of Honor induction ceremony. "Mike and I came here together," Dungy said. "I just told him how proud I was of not just him but the whole group...what you see here, the people in the red and pewter, fired up about the Bucs — they made that happen."

FitzMagic runs out, but QB still throws for 411

Bucs QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, whose "FitzMagic" was the talk of the NFL the first two weeks, struggled early with three first-half interceptions Monday night but still managed to engineer a late rally that came up just short in a 30-27 loss to Pittsburgh.

Ryan Fitzpatrick's comeback attempt falls short as the Bucs fall to the Steelers 30-27. He rallied them back from a 30-10 deficit, but those three interceptions in the second quarter may give pause to a Bucs brass thinking of giving him the reins for another week. To be fair though, this offense hasn't seen that kind of pressure yet (players alluded to this when I spoke with them in the locker room) and he did make some nice throws on those touchdowns to Chris Godwin and Mike Evans.
