Gameday Tampa Bay

October 26th, 2008

Bucs (5-2) at Cowboys (4-3)
Week 8
Kickoff: 1 p.m.

TV: FOX, WTVT Channel 13.
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 118.
Weather: Per, fantastic weather with temperatures in the mid-70s at kickoff rising to 81 toward the end of the game under sunny skies.
Odds: Per, Dallass -2.
Outlook: The Cowboys are sitting ducks for the Bucs. This is a team that is in the midst of circling the drain. No Tony Romo means the menacing Bucs defense will have a new target and a familiar one: Brad Johnson.
Some “experts” claim Johnson, the former Bucs Super Bowl-winning quarterback, knows the Bucs defense and will pick them apart. This is one of the best jokes Joe has heard in weeks.
Johnson is 40-years old. He never had much of an ability to throw the long ball. He threw three interceptions against St. Louis. The Lambs’ defense is not even remotely close to the same league as the Bucs. Additionally, since Johnson can’t throw deep, look for the Bucs to give up the long pass and dare him to throw deep.
Since Johnson is slightly more mobile than the pirate ship at the CITS, the Bucs will likely blitz all game long.
In short, if the Bucs don’t win this game, Chucky should be ashamed to show his contorted face all next week.
