Gameday Tampa Bay

Preseason Game 4

Redskins at Bucs

Kickoff: 8 p.m.

TV: Locally, WFLA-TV Channel 8. Outside the Tampa Bay (and Washington, D.C.) TV market, the game will be broadcast live on NFL Network. (Rebroadcast scheduled for NFL Network Thursday at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 a.m.)

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (WDAE-AM 620 and WFUS-FM 103.5 in Tampa-St.Petersburg region); SiriusXM Channel 108.

Weather: Maybe you haven’t heard, but there is a tropical storm warning in the Tampa Bay area. Winds will pick up as the game grows longer, as the center of the storm in the Gulf inches toward the Florida coast. In short, stay home and watch it on TV unless you like to sit in a monsoon. Per, temperatures will remain in the mid-70s through the game.

Odds: Per, Bucs -3.

Outlook: Who can play in the slop better than others? That’s about the only thing to get out of his game. If a kick returner can hang onto the ball and get any decent return, whoever that person is may have a leg up on a 53-man roster spot come this time next week. Third-string and possible future second-string quarterback Ryan Griffin should get more than a half to play. But to be honest, Joe doesn’t know how anyone can glean any analysis of a quarterback who is playing in a monsoon. This game really shouldn’t be played since everyone is trying to stay healthy. The Bucs have enough practice and preseason tape on players to make an educated decision on who stays and who goes without needing to wallow around in the mud like a bunch of hogs in a pen, which is basically what tonight’s game will be. Preseason games are pretty much worthless as it is. Watching soon-to-be beer truck drivers, school crossing guards and aluminum siding telemarketers try to play football in tonight’s deluge redefines the word “worthless.” The lone objective of this game is to stay healthy. No Bucs player remotely thought to be in contention for a starting job should take one snap tonight.

  2. Buccfan37 Says:

    It is fun to sit in a monsoon, what? you’ve never did it and enjoyed it. I hope the rads in this rain are not too high.

  3. Defense Rules Says:

    @Joe … “This game really shouldn’t be played since everyone is trying to stay healthy. ” BINGO!

  4. Dave Pear Says:


    Tell that to the 22 or so guys sitting on the bubble trying their best to make this team.

  5. DB55 Says:


    I give you permission to post a pic of my wife. You’re welcome, I mean thank you!

  6. tmaxcon Says:

    stunning picture. speechless!

  7. Dave Pear Says:

    Is this young lady a Washington cheerleader?
    Don”t you usually showcase our opponents best on these threads?
    Regardless…She shore is purdy.

  8. Dave Pear Says:

    I wonder what would happen if you yanked on that little anchor?

  9. Joe Says:

    Is this young lady a Washington cheerleader?

    Of course.

  10. Dave Pear Says:

    Dang it man.
    Bye Bye Rachel Watson.

  11. mike n Says:

    Any chance this game gets rained out / canceled?

  12. Mike Johnson Says:

    I”d luv to see a win tonight. But I’d even luv better to be with the dame pictured here…instead of watching the obese young lady across the street from me mow her lawn.

  13. Dave Says:

    Can’t believe the NFL is going to play this in a foot of water and mud. A meaningless game.
    Where’s the massive concern for SAFETY?
    They should have moved it indoors tonight in St Pete! LoL

    Either way, I can’t watch this game of scrubs and hope they do not play any starters at all!!

  14. LakeLandBuc Says:

    22 players will get cut after this game, and a lot has to do with their performance tonight. How in the hell can you judge someone performance while playing in a rainstorm? SMDH .Oh yeah the Dreadnaughts are the top ranked team in 7A after Fort Lauderdale St Thomas lost to Miami Booker T Washington.

  15. Dave Pear Says:

    We’ll find out who the “mudders” are.

  16. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I feel some injury settlements happening after this game!😉

  17. gilhealy Says:

    Funny stuff, Mike Johnson. I laughed out loud. Enjoy the view.

  18. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    Land Ho!

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Watching soon-to-be beer truck drivers, school crossing guards and aluminum siding telemarketers along with Insurance Claims Adjusters, Hooters Cooks, mattress movers (Mike Williams)……assistant high school football coaches, grad students, and…..most importantly future Sports Blog Writers……

    They should have a Job Fair after the game……

  20. orlbucfan Says:

    They’ll stop this one if they get a few whoppers aka sky-to-ground-lighting. No way is anyone getting fried/electrocuted. Hey Joe: where’s a decent cyber link to get TBay weather updates? No snark–thanks! Go Bucs But Not Fried!!

  21. Dreambig Says:

    Just watched Kenny Bell’s pressconference on the Bucs site. He is looking forward to playing in this game to finally catch a break. I now officially feel bad for the guy and wish him the best of luck.

  22. stanglassman Says:

    Is anyone else concerned about Coach Koetter getting rolled up on the sidelines ala Shawn Payton. Koetter legs have zero muscle mass I don’t know if he has recovered fully from the off season operation on his hip.

  23. Dooshlarue Says:

    Her mother was a mudder.

  24. Kevin Says:

    The tarps juat and this field has some of the best rated conditions in the league. I thinks its going to fine guys

  25. DWE Says:

    I used to date her but kicked her to the curb since she was not a buc fan

  26. lightningbuc Says:

    I’d give her the best 5 seconds of her life.

  27. theodore Says:

    @Love and Warrick Dunn Good one!

  28. DWE Says:

    Thus the name lightning Good one

  29. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    They need to sit every starter on the team. There are going to be uncontrolled hits, sliding, hard hits, reckless hits and lightning…this is going to be horrid.

    I would rather our guys sit.

  30. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    SMDH – At anyone who would say – that this game is unimportant or meaningless.
    Do U know how many hours – these young men have put into training? How hits they’ve took – injuries they’ve endured – just to get to this point?

    All for what? So U could set back and speak ill – will of their final audition?
    LIFE LONG dreams will be FOREVER dashed tonight. So give these young men the respect their do. For at least trying to achievve their goals.

    I seriously hope they go out their and have the best f#%King time of their lives.

  31. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I’m saying sit the starters. Not the backups.

  32. Dave Pear Says:

    LUVMYBUCS drops mic and takes a bow.

  33. Chris Says:

    I personally like the brunette hooters girl in the white bikini Joe features from time to time in the a.m

  34. wesley Says:

    Thanks for the spank material Joe! Holy crap is she hot.

  35. Chris Says:

    I would wipe the sweat of Mike Johnson’s lawn mowing neighbor for some quality time with her..

  36. Dooshlarue Says:


    The one above is nice but I hear you about the brunette in the white bikini.
    I’m glad the pics are zoomable, because if you haven’t noticed, she’s got a sweet one!

    Well done, Joe!

  38. SB with Jameis Says:

    I like when Joe puts this one up but he doesn’t anymore.

  39. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    LUV that how I feel after a revamped coaching staff,a second year off the offense and mean looking new defense and folks come on here and act appalled when I say we are Superbowl contenders.

  40. SB with Jameis Says:

    What up Nole my brother!? I can’t say we are SB contenders just yet. If Spawn and VH3 turn out as advertised I think we are playoff contenders, but I think we are still a few pieces away. John Clayton said after last years draft that he thought we were only two good drafts away from being perennial Contenders. One more draft, smart head office moves in Contract structuring and I think we are dynasty bound.

    Stop drooling over my lady fellas it’s impolite.
