Gameday Tampa Bay

September 14th, 2008

Dixie Chicks @ Buccaneers
Week Two
Sunday, 4 p.m.
TV: WTVT Channel 13.
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 107.
Weather: Typical late summer weather along Florida’s central Gulf Coast. Temperature at kickoff is expected to be 90 under partly sunny skies with a chance of thunderstorms near the end of the game. In other words, good beer drinking weather for the tailgate crowd. Joe is thirsty just thinking about it.
Odds: From Bucs -7.
Outlook: It’s ridiculous to call the second game of the season a “must win game,” but there’s no question the Bucs don’t want to fall two games behind in the NFC South after only two games out of the chute.
Last week the Bucs blew a golden opportunity by not playing with their strength, that being the running game. Now Chucky has since said he was at fault with lousy play calling but it’s easy to say that after the fact. Is he really sincere or is he just trying to bullshit people? Sunday should tell.
The Bucs defense needs to reestablish itself as one of the fiercest in the NFL by hammering Dixie Chicks rookie quarterback Matt Ryan.
To paraphrase Lou Holtz, this ain’t no Georgia Tech.
