Greetings from Tampa Bay
 
Some of you will get to know me over the next few days, some may not. I gotta say though, it's nice to be around knowledgeable , die-hard football fans again. And no worries, I'm not going to spend my entire time here to making your lives as miserable as possible like I did the Panthers fans. I got it in for them like you all do Cleveland. I DO welcome a jest here and there because after all, is football not a game of pride? And those 2 rings since 2006 deserves a lot of respect. You have certainly have mine.

I'm looking forward to talking some football and I'm looking forward to the game! Gimme a shout Steeler Nation!

Yup, come on over. I'm still not gonna feel too boastful with maybe Charlie Batch starting and some injuries piling up.

If the Steelers dont score on defense or special teams, they arent gonna put much on the board this week either. I was hopeful for a 2-2 start, but with that already secure......anything else is gravy.

Welcome aboard! Like Tony said, Bucs fans have shown up well so far...glad to have as many here as want to come over to enjoy the upcoming game with us.

I too was just hoping for 2-2 while Ben was out, and now that that is accomplished I can sit back and relax a little. Ok that's a lie, come game time I'll probably be as worked up as ever lol.

At any rate, I'm looking forward to the game. I don't get to watch a lot of Bucs games, so its great to hear about what our team will have to prepare for from the opposing teams fans.

Here's to a good game Sunday! :drink:

Sorry, but the Steelers defense is going to stomp your young QB into submission. He has never seen a defense like this one. Whether the Steeler's offense can score is a whole nother thing. So I make no predictions on who will win. But be very scared that your QB will make it through the game in one piece. They made Matt Ryan and Vince Young both look like scared high school kids.

Agreed, it's gonna probably come down to a game of field goals for us... if you even let us get that far. I'm still confident that this game is winnable for my Bucs. With Ben on your offense I give us a snowball's chance in hell against you guys. I figure you guys win like 20-7 or 20-3. With him out I imagine we match up A LOT better, at least offensively. And call me nuts but I believe we can still win the game but it would probably be something like 10-7. I said to the Panthers fans, "It's not about us being a better football team, it's that you lost your QB, your new one has a concussion and your best player is now playing for the Bears.. thereby our team is better matched against you." You guys have the defense but with Ben out... there's still some hope for us.

I don't expect much running out of us because your d-line will probably manhandle our o-line all day and I know Cadillac is gonna get stomped like a ****roach on the brand new tile floor. Josh Freeman is gonna have to win this for us. Can he do it? I'll give him a vote of confidence because he somehow finds ways to win and he has won the improbable games for us before. No offense to you guys but I trust him a hell of a lot more than Charlie Batch or whoever it is you'll be playing. It'll be an ugly win for sure if we get it. But then again you have to take those wins and win those games when your opponent is at such a major disadvantage. The odds are probably 70:30 in favor of the Steelers, but of course that's what all the talking heads at ESPN gave us to beat Cleveland and Carolina. Both are 0-2.

But Cleveland at 0-2? What's the surprise there? HIYO!

Another Tampa fan here greetings to the Steeler fans! Born in Ohio grew up a Bengals fan (I know I know) but escaped to Florida in 85' and became a Bucs fan after Culverhouse.

Looks to be a good game next Sunday...may it be injury free.


Good luck to ya.

Greetings Steeler Fans and fellow Buc Fans,

2nd post. Just dropped to show support for Swashy's post. Bet you thought it was Terry Bradshaw. Shows what you know. All kidding aside, It's simply to get the Buc name in there in addition to recognizing your teams history. That Bradshaw guy sure had a habit of turning my TV screen Black and Yellow at playoff time back in the day.

I have a funny feeling your D will leave our boys a lttle bruised up. It's a good thing they have the bye for Game 4 to recover. Any team can beat any team on any given day. We'll see what happens

Here's to a good game , no injuries.

Go Bucs
