Gameday Tampa Bay

August 29th, 2012

Preseason Week 4

Bucs at Redskins

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

TV: WTSP Channel 10. The game also will air on the NFL Network at 3 p.m.

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); SiriusXM Channel 134.

Weather: Per, expect clear skies throughout the evening with a temperature of 77 at kickoff with the temperature dropping gradually to 72 at game’s end. There will be virtually no wind.

Odds: Per, Bucs +4.

Outlook: Preseason is a tedious time for football fans. It’s games that do not count and glorified practices; a giant tease. The worst tease is the final week of preseason, tonight for the Bucs, where camp meat (future truck drivers, high school teachers, bartenders and insurance claims adjusters) play the bulk of the game. All but a handful of players who will see action tonight will be on the Bucs roster come this weekend. There are still a few things for Bucs fans to watch before they fall asleep. Who will burst the bubble? Will Leonard Johnson be able to beat out Myron Lewis? Will Cody Grimm beat out Larry Asante and keep a job? Will Mossis Madu be able to hang on to the roster? How about Sammie Stroughter? Mistakes tonight very could mean a ticket out of town Friday. Everything will be magnified for those clawing for NFL checks next week, and beyond.

    fyi, got that preseason live last week. it’s da bomb yo!

  3. Gus Says:

    @Mark Blount and Martin will both play some. They will split carries during the season.

  4. MadMax Says:

    My guess is Blount and Martin will see limited play. I wouldnt be surprised if Martin isnt playing at all. I imagine Madu and Smith will take most of the carries. I hope they sit most starters. Its time to evaluate the back ups. I’m hoping Jermarcus Hardrick (Yoshi) can step it up on that right side of the O Line. He’s a great guy (BIG too) and I hope he makes the team.

    At this point I’m just hoping for no more injuries. This is not a game I plan to keep on the dvr.

    I think Myron Lewis will actually beat out Leonard Johnson……………. for a spot on the Redskins. I really would like this to be the last time I see that guy flopping around, making effeminate faces and jestures, and being burned by all comers.

    This is lame I don’t care if it counts or not we are not even close to being ready. Play newno line and josh! If they get injured now or first game still bad they need the work

    There’s only one reason to enjoy playing the Redskins, and that is that Joe dusts off the photo of this goddess.
