Best Bucs Monday Night Thread

BREAKING NEWS (and a bit of good news at that)- Jason Campbell will make his first start for the Skins next week in replacement of Mark Brunell against the Bucs.

Two Previews for your perusement: Sticks and Fanhouse.

Also, 3 starters on the defense in addition to Brian Kelly are out for tonight's game.

I will not be liveblogging this game but you can find a liveblog at the Fanhouse here. Dave, the Panthers blogger, has a live blog here.

Halftime Update: Theismann is actually making some sense, good play calling by Gruden (and by Kiffin on the defensive side) but Grads is holding the offense back from at least ten more points. As I have previously pointed out Grads has struggled throwing the deep ball. Ike Hilliard must be upset about USC's BCS ranking cause he's having his best game as a Buc. Ronde Barber and the play calling are the reasons the Bucs are in this game.

Final Score: Bucs 10, Panthers 24
Panthers win the Puke Bowl, and keep their playoff chances alive. Bucs lose and look like a lock for a top five pick.

Random Side Note: How much must it suck to be the Official Bucs photographer right now? The Tampa Bay Organizatiom, following much the same guidelines established by China and North Korea, only posts flaterring pictures on its website. Because if you don't post negative pictures then maybe the fanbase won't realize your team blows....
