you're underestimating the Bucs defense.

and i certainly never said the Bucs will win easily. they really haven't won easily at all this year, aside from the Falcons game. like i said, they look great on paper but still haven't completely rounded the corner as far as putting a game away goes. i think that'll come very soon though.

we have worked our asses off for every single first down let alone win.....the falcons game was an acception for sure......

I was talking to one of our Eagle fans on deck today and he, who tears us up all year long, agreed that we're getting it done with a bunch of "no-names", "cast-offs", or "dinosaurs".......I see someone posted yall's IR list...ours is pretty horrible too!

NFC Super Bowl representative, I love the optimism especially from a Dolphins fan...
Not so sure about that, although I think we can give any team a fight with Garcia at the helm, McCown will be exposed IMO if he continues to play even though he played so well last week. There is little tape on the guy and difficult to prepare for I am sure, but now there is a whole game on him recently...

Thanks for registering on deck, hopefully everyone can begin chiming in here as well!

One sign of a good team is to win games you should have lost.The Saints should have won last Sunday,but thanks to Sean Peyton and Reggie Bush,the Bucs got a chance to slam the door!

Not only has a previous poster underestimated the Bucs D but the nation wide media circus as well.

Remember it was our defense the one and only "Tampa 2" in 1999-2000 that showed the NFL how to beat the "Greatest Show on Turf". Compared to that team, these new Cowboys are wannabee's.

We have the pieces in place to beat the 'Boys, we only need consistant pass rush to do it and that's saying something about the so-called "feared" or "dominate" Dallas offense.

Bucs D > Dallas' O

The Bucs normally rush four and don't blitz very often, is that true?

That has been the style that Monte Kiffin and his Tampa 2 scheme has used for years but this year we've been blitzing alot because our D-Line didn't show up until recently. (Thankfully)

We can do both very well, which makes us even more dangerous. If the Bucs offense can post a 10-14 point lead by halftime or third quarter, the defense we have this season is unbeatable as long as the offense can get some late game 1st downs. We can't rely on our defense to stop every drive in the second half without getting some help from our offense. No team can.

We used to be able to rely on our defense back in the day like that but times have changed. We don't have numerous HOF type guys like Sapp, Rice, Quarles and Lynch anymore to go along with Barber and Brooks.

His Special teams work is too much dance, not enough run, but that gets rectified quickly when it starts.

Looking very forward to this game folks. We have had a lot of Gaines 'haters' and many of us pointed to Mario of an example of the fact that it takes time normally for D Lineman to hit their stride. He has been coming on strong and was a key contributor to what was called earlier the "Reggie Bush Gift". Error is still on Reggie, but that hard upfield rush busted that play.

Loooking forward to a good game. We will be discussing it tonight on "What the Buc? if you folks care to tune in (it will be inthe second hour as we do our preview).

Personally, I've been saying that PBuc isn't a bad player as some Houston fans chose to remember him (obviously he didn't play very well for us). But I still think a big receiver can be a difficult match up for him. I'm hoping that A.J. will have a big day for us.

How is Tanard Jackson doing? He's definitely very athletic, but has he been able to make all the reads correctly?

Last game Andre faced him he had 6 receptions/115 yards/1 touchdown in a victory over Oakland in 2004.

Win or lose this weekend, doesn't matter much to me this season. But do me a favor, if you meet the "Cowturds" in the playoffs, kick their "arsses" (pirate slang ) for us. Thanks!
