Enough Gloating. Bucs Next

It may have been a win against the clowns, but that gives no one an excuse to focus on the previous sunday past 1pm Monday.

The Bucs are going to be tough to beat. They may not have an elite running game, nor a stable of wide receivers, but Freeman is mobile and streaky. Their offensive line can repel on occasion.

Their defense gave up over 300 total offense, including 256 passing to the division III Jets. Their offense might suck, but their are still professionals and can do damage, and TB should have done enough to win against them.

All this being said, playing in the evening on the road on grass in a brazing oven is going to test the Saints.

What matchups are going to cause us/them problems?

Just playing the Yucks in Tampa scares me.

Re: Enough Gloating. Bucs Next

They're a tough team at home and better than what they showed against the Jets.

We need to make sure we provide over the top help for whomever will be guarding Vincent Jackson. I'd like to see Vaccaro matched up with Jackson on some plays... that should be an interesting matchup. They're going to run Doug Martin like a rag doll on us... we need to make sure we limit the damage. Martez will be back next week so we'll have even more speed to use to create pressure. While Freeman is far from a great quarterback, he's more than capable of putting up a monster stat line. We need to keep him on his toes and not let him get comfortable.

Offensively, just play Saints football and limit turnovers. There's typically not much to complain about. We can score on anyone.

Mike Williams, WR is one to watch as well...

And that running game with Doug Martin as the workhorse can gouge fast...

Re: Enough Gloating. Bucs Next

Rob just needs to ask his brother what he did this week. But they can be a dangerous team. For some reason they just can't get it together. Didn't we shut them out last year? No reason why it can't happen again. I believe the defense will do what it's supposed to do. I'm actually more concerned about Drew. He's been slightly off on a lot of passes. Its weird. And this isn't something I just noticed. I've been saying it since after the Super Bowl. But I think we win pretty easily. 34-13.

Re: Enough Gloating. Bucs Next

Any division game is going to be hard fought. They do always seem to have our number especially at their house. It would be awesome to start the division 2-0. If we field the same team we did against ATL we got this. I expect to see a much improved offense over last weeks performance too.
