I give the bucs only about a 50% chance of scoring on offense.

if they get the ball 8 times, does that mean they score on 4 of them?

I am going 34-3 Panthers.

 

The mood down here is gloomy as it has ever been.

The Bucs put up 23 on the road last week.  Glennon is a rookie but he has a good arm and decent weapons.

Seriously, if nick foles and Matt Ryan can both put up 31 points, so can we.

Let's just hope we don't lay a dud like Rivera is capable of doing.

Rivera to his credit hasn't laid an egg this year IMO he's coached us to success the players haven't executed on a few different plays. Seattle we still had Godfrey good coverage but always seems to be one step to slow like on the TD. And then Dwill fumbles our chance to close the game. Buff we all know Rivera wouldn't have gotten scored on at age fifty if he was out there on the field Josh blew that simple. Az Rivera didn't drop a Td and a first down, another first down on fourth down etc. Dude has us playing lights out since day one to me this season and we don't really notice it based on his past DUDS I understand but when I speak on him know I truly give him mad credit he's on his sh*t this year

Combine the factors:

 

1. Bucs look like a medic ward

2. Our players are looking for revenge for last year, especially on defense

3. Rookie Quarterback for Tampa

4. Muscle Hamster out

5. Greg Schiano is the Janoris Jenkins of likable coaches

 

That's not to say we will score a bunch on this defense, though.

 

Prediction:

 

Panthers 20

Bucs 3

 

yep.

 

people keep talking about how the bucs are fighting for some respect and their first win and acting like we really don't have any reason to come in their fighting or might not come in doing it, but the truth is the team that we saw fighting the rams just a few days ago just doesn't look like the same roller coaster team we've been seeing for the past couple years.

 

both teams are going into this game fighting for some respect (if the bucs have any fight left in them), but one team is pretty much thriving and definitely trending upwards as far as this season go. the other team just gets uglier and uglier.

 

one thing i am completely confident in is that the panthers won't be taking this game lightly. they'll come out swinging. i feel like the bucs will probably come out swinging as well, but i think that the panthers will do more with their punches because i think they're in better shape mentally and physically.

We make rookie Qb seem like the next Montana.

I don't give a damn how we win, as long as we win.  Also, no significant injuries.  Need all the healthy players we can get.

it was against the falcons, tho.

 

they've given up 14 passing TDs so far this year (tied for 25th and only one less than jaxville and buffalo who have given up the most) and have only had 3 INTs (again tied for 25th and only one away from the 2 worst), 14 sacks (tied for 25th ...with the bucs, btw), and QBs throwing at them have a rating of 104.7, which is the second worst in the league only behind jaxville.

 

so...glennon looked pretty good last week, but it was against one of the bottom feeders in pass D this year.
