High winds and spotty thunderstorms. The field will be wet, undoubtedly. This could be a rough day for Medlock, but, like kicking in Heinz, we really shouldn't judge him if he misses one in 10-12 mph winds. I wouldn't mind this turning into a slug fest as I think our running offense and defense are going to be better than the Bucs'. Plus, rain would help overshadow some of our deficiencies in the secondary.

I just hope we can brave the elements and escape injury free. Actually, come to think of it, the weather might be the determining factor in holding Stewart out of the game. A wet field combined with trying to come back from an ankle sprain is bad business.

It'll also help as it won't be quite so hot out there if it rains. We've always seemingly had trouble with the Tampa heat.

Gallagher... You just helped me set my fantasy roster 2 days early. Excellent point in regards to Stew as well.

Keep in mind It's FL, and weather here changes by the hr. will be keeping a close look at this on Sunday. Already have Tampa added on my weather.com app

stew playing would be great in a grind-it-out ground game, but his talents are worth more down the stretch. no need to play him on a wet field if that is indeed the case.

if this comes down to a sloppy mud game i think we win easily.

LOL at the roof cleaning buccaneer for saying that we would be at a disadvantage due to the heat.

Now Freeman is going to be even worse at throwing the ball.

I've been to Panthers opening season games where temps were 97 degrees. So at least it will still be in the 80s in Tampa, could be alot hotter. I don't care to see alot of rain, if any. And definetely no thunderstorms.

I little bit strange that they are playing an east coast team at 4pm. It is usually 1pm. Tampa is so backwards..

Yeah, I think we always play at 4 when we play in Tampa don't we? I don't get it.
