Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 158.
Weather: Per, temperature at kickoff is expected to be 91 with moderate humidity under sunny skies with little to no wind. This will hold steady through the game with a chance of thunderstorms towards the end of the game.
Odds: Per, Steelers -3.
Outlook: If all goes well for the Bucs this should be a close, low-scoring game. The Steelers have yet to score an offensive touchdown in regulation yet, which is stunning in today’s NFL that they could rack up two wins, especially since they forced as many turnovers as the offense had first downs last week in a win over Tennessee. That’s because the Steelers defense is frighteningly good. They smothered Matt Ryan and Michael Turner in the first week and drove Vince Young out of the game while holding Chris Johnson to less than 40 yards rushing last week which doesn’t bode well for Josh Freeman and Cadillac Williams. If the Bucs are going to win this game it will be the same way the Steelers won last week: force turnovers for a short field for Freeman to work with. Freeman claims he has studied the film of the crazy blitzes employed by Steelers mastermind defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. But seeing first-hand and watching on film are two different animals. Freeman said the same thing last year against the Jets and the crazy blitzes of Rex Ryan and Joe remembers the very first play from scrimmage Freeman threw a pick. If the Bucs somehow pull off an upset, it’s not outrageous to believe they could be playoff bound. A loss should not send the team into a tailspin. This is one of the best defenses of our generation. There is no shame losing to a juggernaut like this. For more on the game, please watch Derek “Old School” Fournier’s game preview on
Fun Facts: The Steelers are 9-0 when James Harrison has two-plus sacks in a game. … The last time the Bucs beat the Steelers, the Bucs defense made Kordell Stewart cry. … Hines Ward needs two TDs to move into second place on the franchise’s all-time list. … The Bucs are 13-0 when Cadillac Williams has at least 22 carries. … Tampa Bay’s Kellen Winslow leads the NFL this year with eight third-down receptions.
Bucs inactives: Kareem Huggins, Rudy Carpenter, Myron Lewis, Maurice Stovall, Michael Bennett, Ted Larsen, Niko Koutouvides.

    Hey Derek – GREAT VIDEO pre-game analysis. Man this dude should be working for the Tampa Tribune and not EyeRah. The difference is EyeRah has a NICE tan and Derek – you look like a smurf! Or maybe you look so blue and sickly because you viewed that picture that Joe posted of the Steelers Cheerleaders?

    COME ON MAN!!!

  13. Mr. Lucky Says:

    Joe where did you get that picture of the girl anyway? Did she fly down to Tampa to cheer for the Steelers? What’s she gonna do eat the Bucs?

    Speaking of which did they use a C150 Cargo plane to ship her fat azz down here? Damn just drop her into Tampa Bay and the resultant tidal wave will wipe out Davis Island and St. Petersburg!

  14. sensiblebuc Says: says Lumpkin is in…Huggy Bear is out.

  15. Josh Says:
