Gameday Tampa Bay

December 24th, 2011

Week 16
Bucs at Panthers
1 p.m.
TV: WTVT-TV in Tampa, DirecTV 711.
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 136.
Weather: Despite it being Christmas weekend, the weather up north isn’t bad whatsoever. Per, temperatures will be somewhat moderate. Kickoff conditions will be 54 degrees and will only drop slightly through the game with a temperature of 51 expected by the final whistle.
Odds: Per, Bucs +7.5.
Outlook: Does anyone expect anything but a blowout by the stinking Panthers? The Bucs are in one of the worst tailspins Joe has ever seen from any NFL team. And look who pops up next on the schedule but rookie Cam Newton looking to break Peyton Manning’s rookie passing record of 3,739 yards. Yeah, the asinine lockout really hurt a rookie coming out of a spread-option offense, huh? Chalk the lockout as yet another weak excuse to enable the Bucs’ inabilities to fix problems. Add to the fact that Steve Smith will likely be going up against struggling E.J. Biggers, this very well could be a beatdown by the Panthers.

    Upon further review, the evidence suggests that we should not be hatin’ on everything about Carolina!

    I have a feeling that Carolina will score 40+ today.

    Scares me to think how many points Newton will put up today . Be nice to see Bucs play like they care but I seriously doubt it .

  4. Garv Says:

    I want to see who supports Raheem and josh Freeman enough to show it on the field. I want to see who care like Cam Newton cares.

    Merry Christmas!

    Chidi Ahanotu wrote a scathing report on Josh Freeman on Pewter Report. I have sensed Josh was arrogant. I guess other are seeing it to.

    @TempcoPest – I gave up Pewter Report, but that is interesting about Josh Freeman!
    My Football Buddy from Miami don’t like Josh, says he looks like Ronald McDonald.
    Go figure, he’s from Miami.
