Trust me: Stay away from the comments.

Williams, Petitgout Lost for Season

Tampa Bay looked very impressive going to 3-1 today, but it was a costly victory. Cadillac Williams tore his patellar tendon, and left tackle Luke Petitgout tore his ACL. Both are done for the year.

FO Mailbag: Do Bad Teams Win 56-21?
