Gameday Tampa Bay

November 15th, 2009

Week 9
Bucs at Dolphins
Kickoff: 1 p.m.
TV: WTVT Ch. 13, DirecTV 709
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 158.
Weather: Per, it will be hard to improve on the weather. Glorious Florida football afternoon under sunny skies and 80 degrees at kickoff. Temperature is expected to remain steady throughout the game with gentle breezes.
Odds: Per, Dolphins -10
Outlook: Finally, the Bucs got a win last week. Rookie quarterback Josh Freeman got his first start and when he played in a shotgun formation, he was fantastic. When Freeman took snaps from center, he was Dilferesque. Joe expects the Dolphins to blitz early and often. Given the fact the Dolphins are banged up in the secondary and have two rookies playing there, it’s possible the Bucs try to take advantage of that. Key to this game will be the Bucs running game. If the Bucs run well, the Bucs keep the ball out of the Dolphins hands. It’s simple, but despite the Bucs racking up three interceptions and six sacks, the defense still gave up a terrible amount of yards. The Bucs cannot count on three interceptions and six sacks every game. So a solid rushing game by the Bucs will be critical. Keep in mind Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter feasts on the Bucs with seven sacks in three games.
Fun facts: The adorable lass above is Dolphins cheerleader Fabiola Romero. Readers with a keen eye should recognize her. She was one of the three original Florida State Cowgirls along with hometown girl and Bucs traitor Jenn Sterger, who took off her filthy Jets clothes and no longer works for Gang Green. Simply put, Fabiola is… fabulous!
