    maybe coach Rah should give the speech he gave at the end of the vikings game,at the beginning…I was ready to run through a wall when I heard it.

    Why would the Colts vs Bucs MNF game be blacked out?! It’s on ESPN, a national network.

    The Saturday Night Game against Dallas in December is on NFL Network, so I don’t understand why that’d be blacked out either, as that is also a national network.

    They can be blacked out locally.

    As to the Bucs slow starts…I remember the day (under Trent Dilfer, Shawn King, etc. when the Bucs started strong and lost games in the second half. I like this much, much better.

    And I think expecting the defense to do well at this point is not a fair expectation. 3 of the guys up front have played a total of 2 games in an nfl season…and it all starts up front. They’ll take time to get better.

    At the start of every year, the Bucs start slow. We see major areas that need improving, and they usually fix them within a few games. Expect longer for the defense, but the offense should get better.

    HOWEVER…be happy with a win this week if it happens, but expect a loss. I think we’ll split the games with atlanta and our team won’t be good enough to win until the next time we play them.

    If we win, I will be VERY happy…if we lose I’ll just shrug it off.

    Yeah, it looks like Anwar was the victim of a paintball fight.


    You live in Texas, right? No Bucs games will be blacked out for you.

    All home games — no matter what network carries the game, no matter if it is preseason or regular season — are subject to the NFL’s blackout rules.
