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!!!!
