Gameday Tampa Bay

December 12th, 2010

Week 14
Bucs at Redskins
1 p.m.
TV: WTVT-TV in Tampa, DirecTV 708.
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 158.
Weather: In case one hasn’t been monitoring the news the past day or so, the weather up north is positively miserable. Per, the game is expected to be played through a constant rainstorm with the temperatures barely getting out of the 40s with a stiff 16 mph wind that is expected to increase throughout the game. Folks, that’s horrible weather. A snowstorm is better than being soaked in the cold with a nasty wind.
Odds: Per, Bucs -3.
Outlook: Simply put, if the Bucs cannot win this game, they have no business being in the playoffs. Despite the awful cold. Despite the constant rain. Despite the stinging winds, it doesn’t mask the fact the Redskins are an absolute train wreck. Donovan McNabb has virtually no one to throw the ball to, sans an overrated if not over the hill Santana Moss. The Redskins have no rushing attack to speak of. Their best defensive lineman just got run from the team. To quote the great former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington, the Redskins defense is “weak in the belly.” The Redskins have no business winning this game. If the Bucs are a good team if not a playoff team, they need to overcome the elements, man up and put the Redskins out of their misery. Run. The. Ball. Run it! LeGarratte Blount. Cadillac Williams. Earnest Graham. Shove the ball down the Redskins’ throats early and often. If there was ever a game that begged, pleaded Bucs offensive coordinator Greg Olson to run the damned ball, this is it. Rotten rush defense combined with horrible weather. Run. The. Ball. Run the ball early. Run the ball often. If the Bucs lose this game, then there’s no business talking playoffs nor does this team have any business discussing playoffs. If the Bucs lose this game, it’s time to start looking at the draft.
Video: NFL Films looks at the Bucs-Redskins. … TBO suggests the Bucs are all about No. 5. … Slur-hurling Trey Wingo, Mark Schlereth and Herm Edwards of BSPN are all giddy over Josh Freeman. … good guy Stephen Holder and Rick Stroud break down the Bucs-Redskins game in this St. Petersburg Times video. … Jason Reid and Mike Wise make their predictions of the game in this video.
Fun facts: Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has a touchdown in each of his last three games against the Bucs. … Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong has a 20.7 yards-per-catch average. … GMC has three sacks in his last three games. … Mike Williams leads rookies with seven touchdowns catches.

    We Should Win This Game But With Greg Olsen Calling Plays You Never Know

  3. Pete 422 Says:

    Justin, hopefully turn, hand the ball of to Blount and compliment with high % passing along with a shot down field or two.

    Justin f,
    You think, the reason we lost the games we lost, was due to Greg Olsen’s play calling? Probablly should re-watch them then again.

  5. McBuc Says:

    OAR has a good point…The play calling has been pretty good this year.

  6. bucfanlostiniowa Says:

    Yep GregOlson is great as long as you like pass-run-pass-punt every set of downs

  7. Buc You Says:

    if the Bucs lose its no biggie, afterall they already are overachievers.

  8. McBuc Says:

    The play call does not matter if the players do not execute. You can not lay all of that at Olson’s feet.

  9. Teddy Says:

    Look, this is all really cool chatter about what should be the Bucs 8th win of the year, but you’re all overlooking the really important question:

    Where do we get more pics of that Redskins cheerleader???
