Gruden is not going to be a Volunteer.  He is a Swashbuckling Pirate in Pewter and Red.

Next Topic.... the Detroit Lions

Yeah they are 0-10... but they beat us last year... and I hate playing a team with nothing to lose...

They will be in Cover-2 vs us the whole game... with Cadillac sub 100% and Graham out... Dunn wont be able to run all over them like other teams have.  So Garcia will have to throw in tight windows the whole game... I strongly expect a win but I dont expect the Bucs to cover the 7+ point spread.

We might have Jermaine Phillips returning and Gaines Adams will be 100%, so I dont expect much of a whimper out of the passing game from Dante.  However, I do expect Kevin Smith to have a decent game against our Run Defense, which might not be as pumped for this game.  Also Geno Hayes is a huge loss... he comes in and always gives a strong effort off the bench to spell the LB Corps... hopefully others will fill in nicely...

Gruden has really stressed to the team that this Lions team is going to be a stiff challenge, mentioning that they game Minnesota, Miami and Carolina tough games despite losing.  This will be a game won by special teams and coaching, and well my friends, the Bucs have that advantage.

Win #8 Here we come... Go Bucs!!!!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers [11/21/2008]

There is nothing to be afraid of.  The Lions are well on their way to 0-16 this season.  I grew up in Detroit and lived in Tampa up til recent.  The Buccs will cover the spread x2.  I dont think you realize how bad the Lions really are.  There is virtually "0" Defense in Detroit, and now they have another new QB who is "learning" the "system".  The Lions are not wounded, their dead. 

The Buccs have the secondary to keep "megatron" in check so enjoy the free victory this week.  It should be plesant payback for the embarrassment they caused you last season.

Just a few stats to help ease your fear.
1.  The Lions are 1-17 dating back into last season where they beat the Chiefs, another winner.
2.  The Lions have the #30 pass "D" and the #28 run "D".  Thats what happens when you have a bunch of 2nd team players pretending to run   the "Tampa 2".
3. The Lions play the undefeated Titans four days from the Buccs game.  They are looking past the Buccs to a more important game....thats a joke.....but then so are the Lions

Dont worry, Itll be a blowout.

Im also frightened of this game because the lions, at 0-10 have nothing to lose so they will go all out (Maybe there just hoping for a draft pick).
