Who I like - Tampa Bay edition


Two defenses that have given up a combined 41 points in their first two games will meet Sunday in Tampa.

But one is for real and the other is a product of having played the Browns and Panthers.

The Steelers are 4 1/2-point favorites over the Bucs Sunday and that seems like a layup, particularly with Charlie Batch at quarterback.

What's that? You think I can't be talking about the same Charlie Batch who threw for 25 yards in two and a half quarters last week.

Batch's numbers would have been much better had his teammates helped him out a bit. He threw some nice passes, moved in the pocket well and got the ball to the correct receiver.

The touchdowns will still be tough to come by. But with the way the Steelers defense is playing, it doesn't matter.

Take the Steelers to win, 20-6.

i think these buc fans are underrating charlie batch. he's no ben, but he's proved in the past to be clutch when needed (and when not injured)

i have to admit though, i hold my breath everytime i see charlie take a hit/sack

We finally have a full weeks stability and can gameplan around a QB who's a veteran and who's been here for a long time. Charlie knows this offense more than anybody and if Tampa doesn't respect his arm, Charlie can put it there. He should open up Mendenhall. This will be our offensive breakout game. We reach the endzone TWICE offensively.

I have an uneasy feeling about this one. I don't like being the favorite. The Bucs could take this as a statement game.

Steelers D has got to play lights out again on the road.

Take solace in knowing this is Week 3 and not Week 15. That will make a HUGE difference on whether or not the D can play lights out. Lucky for us, they're healthy.

On another note:

I am kind of looking forward to seeing this Freeman dude play as well. I've yet to see him play in a game though what I have seen, he looks somewhat legit.

Against... suspect D's.

Not really sure he is going to be able to handle what is thrown at him. Don't really see their run game getting anywhere either.

17-9.

Wallace and Mendy get on the board.

I look forward to seeing what Freeman has, but he is still a 1 and a half year starter. He has not proven he is better than Ryan ( who is legit) or Young (who is a talented head case). He has never seen a LeBeau D.

Hopefully this kid won't get his mojo crushed under the weight of this Defense.
