Heeeeeeee's back! Can you say pie in our face? Congratulations, Trent Dilfer. You showed the ultimate class and perseverance since you left the Bucs. You made this Trent doubter a Dilfer fan.
Good Luck in the Super Bowl. Are you a free agent next year?

I just want to thank Coach Dungy for sending my favorite quarterback home to the Tampa Bay area. Go Dilfer! It's too bad we have Shaun King instead of Trent Dilfer. Just think, if we had kept Dilfer and (Mike) Shula, made the additions to the offensive line and Keyshawn Johnson that we did, we would be in the Super Bowl. Thanks, Coach Dungy.

Last year I went to Las Vegas for Super Bowl XXXIV. While there, the consensus of most people was that if Trent Dilfer was Tampa Bay's starting quarterback, the Bucs had an excellent chance of being champion. I applaud Trent Dilfer for the way he took the move to Baltimore, knowing he was going there in a backup role.
As have many quarterbacks in the past that left Tampa Bay for greener pastures, this is another slap in the face for the Buccaneers and Tony Dungy. The Ravens were worse offensively than our Buccaneers and he brought life to an anemic offense. I have always been a Trent Dilfer supporter and wish him the best of success as a permanent fixture in the Ravens organization.
