While statistically not one of the best quarterbacks for the Bucs during the decade, Brad Johnson was the QB for the Buccaneers' best season in team history.
Johnson took over in 2001, leading the Buccaneers to a 9-7 season, starting every game——the last Buccaneer quarterback to do so——and a playoff berth.
As that season ended in a loss in Philadelphia, costing head coach Tony Dungy his job, Johnson would have one of his best seasons statistically under the new coach, Jon Gruden.
Johnson's 2002 season, where he threw for 3,049 yards, a team-record 22 touchdowns, and six interceptions, culminated in the Buccaneers' Super Bowl victory over the Oakland Raiders.
Johnson was back in 2003, starting every game, throwing for 3,811 yards, and breaking the record he set the previous season with 26 touchdowns.
Johnson would struggle at the beginning of 2004 and would be benched for Brian Griese, never starting another game in Tampa Bay again.
Johnson would finish his Tampa Bay career starting the most games of any starter this decade, 49, was 26-23 as a starter (3-1 in the playoffs), threw for 10,940 yards, 64 touchdowns, and 41 interceptions.
Even though it ended poorly, everyone will remember "Big Bad Brad" as the quarterback of the decade for Tampa Bay.
