**We've reached the final day in our countdown of your Top 20 All-Time Fan-Favorite Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Pounding his way to #2 on the list, one of this season's two Ring of Honor inductees, the A-Train, Mike Alstott.

Alstott is well remembered in Tampa Bay for trucking over opponents, breaking seemingly dozens of tackles every time he touched the ball, and his insatiable nose for the end zone. Alstott's 71 touchdowns are 25 more than anyone else in Buccaneers history and his 432 points scored place him third on the list in team annals. In fact, Alstott is the only player in the top seven in points scored that is not a kicker.

Alstott's highlight reel is a long one, full of big hits and goal line dives and up-the-gut intensity that defined his play. Beyond the highlight reel, his numbers also tell the story of one of the best players to put on a Bucs' uniform, ranked second in rushing yards, fourth in receptions, fifth in starts, and first in TDs and rushing TDs.

Here is what some of you had to say about naming Mike Alstott your favorite Buccaneer:

  • "Mike Alstott played the game with all his heart and never gave up, never went down without a fight. That is football at its finest."
  • "Mike Alstott – Never seen a player spark a crowd the way he did. Not only my favorite Buc of all time but my favorite football player."
  • "When we needed magic, he would put the team on his back and do things on the football field that nobody thought was humanly possible."
