My Friday Breakdown: Playoff Edition - Bucs vs. the (Red)Skins

I've missed you people. Seriously, I have. After studying the playoff situationals, I was preparing for a bye week and ready to face Seattle next week at the Ray Jay. Unfortunately, the officials at the NFL League saw fit to pencil TB (Tampa Bay) is as the #3 seeders. That's fine. In fact, I look forward to this meeting versus your "football" team.

NFL League Playoffs: The Tampa Bay Buccanneers (Super Bowl XXXIIIX World Champions, NFC Southern Champions, Winners of 11 games, etc.) vs. skins.

Where? Tampa Bay, Home of Raymond James Financial Group Stadium

When? This weekend.

Televised? The game will be televised locally. I'll have to check the national listings. I don't have cable.

Wheather Forecast? Chili with a chance cold weather.

Commentators? Yes

Overview

Well, it's evident to me, as it is to other diehard football fans, that the Redskins have benefitted from a soft, easy schedule in the last couple months to allow them this little breath of fresh air to breathe. Unfortunately for fans of the gold and white, the Bucs will be a vacuum cleaner and suck all the air from the lungs of the Skins.

On the other side, the Bucs are peaking in stride. Chris Simms appears headed for Canton after his performance this season. Gotta thank Phil for those jeans.

Gibbs vs. Gruden, mano e mano, head to head, face to face...a coaching dreamer's dream.

The word is that the Pewter Pirate fans will be issued battle flags. Oh...this should turn out to be a good one...if you're into shalackings.

When the Pewter Pirates have the ball

After viewing the gamefilm, researching, analyzating the X's and Y's, and jotting down numerous notes on mismatches, I see a glaring strength on the Pewter Pirate offense...and that is Mr. Joseph Galloway. The man is a rich man's Santana Moss, but faster and with better hands. It also helps to have a rocksteady QB in QB Chris Simms. The word is that Joe and Chris are best friends, so look for them to look for each other out there on the gridiron. Matt Bowen will definitely have his hands full for sure.

The (red)Skins' defense has many holes starting with the defensive coordinator. Sure, they've gotten after a couple porous, yet horrible offenses, but they haven't faced the juggernaut that is Jon Gruden and his undenyably geniousical offense.

When the (red)Skins play defense...

LaVar Arrington will need to be on his best game. He'll be matched up against Anthony Becht and/or Alex Smith with Alstott and Cadillac coming out of the backfield. This is when the inopportuned Skins find out what happens when you neglect the FA (Free Agency) period during the offseason. Arrington needed some help at linebacker. Michael Barrow, Dexter Coakley, etc. were all available for pickup, however the "genius" Gregg Williams decided it was better to field the JV squad instead. Look at where that has gotten them...in the playoffs without a home game.

Shawn Springs and the other CB look to shutdown Michael Clayton and Ike Hilliard. Unfortunately for the skins, Chris Simms is playing lights out and has the security blanket of Michael Pittman at his disposal.

Speaking of Pittman (MVP), I look for him to have at least 20-30 touches with Cadillac coming in for mop-up duty in the early 3rd quarter. The Redskins defense just doesn't have the squad or the resources to defend Gruden's offense.

Summarization

The Pewter Pirates will be tempted to look ahead to the game in Detroit, but Gruden will have these guys ready to face an opponent of any caliber, even the Skins.

Predictions

Simms: 23-24, 317 yards, 2 TD's, 0 INTS, 0 picks

Pittman: 12 rushes for 87 yards, 2 TD's, 0 INT

Cadillac: 13 rushes for 93 yards, 2 TD's

Galloway: 11 rec. for 119 yards, 3 TD's

Brunell: 2-18, 83 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 2 picks

Portes: 17 rushes for 52 yards, 1 TD

WR: 7 rec. for 42 yards, 1 TD

Final Score: Buccanneers 24, Redskins 10

I have to admit I love your "New Math" method of scoring.

Dude that's awesome, you made my morning. Seriously, that's some of the best comedy I've seen in a while. What are you doing, wasting your time on this board. You're the next Dave Chapelle so start acting like it.

My favorites are:

- Simms: 23-24, 317 yards, 2 TD's, 0 INTS, 0 picks

So, Simms will have both no INTS and no picks! What a great day that will be.

- Portes: 17 rushes for 52 yards, 1 TD

Is that the sea of Portes? Oh, you meant Clinton Portis, the running back who had 148 and 144 yards against your D in the last two meetings. But this time, during the hottest streak of his career, the Bucs will hold him to just about nothing.

Genius, pure genius!

One more thing -- if Pittman has 2 TDs, Caddy has 2TDs, and Galloway has 3 TDs, isn’t that 7 TDs? Yet the Bucs only score 24? What, will they be docked 25 points for the gay pirate?

This is definately a canidate for the dumbest thread ever!

My eyes began to water after the words, Redskins and "soft schedule" were in the same sentence along with the Bucs and "peeking in stride".

A whole paragraph on LaVar, one sentense on Spring and that's it??? Come on man, our leaders on D are Griffin, Washington, Taylor, etc. That is who we need to be on top of their game, no LaVar.

he doesn't even know the status of the players on the team that he supposedly follows, how do you expect him to know Redskin players?

A bit over the top, but funny.

NFL League Playoffs: The Tampa Bay Buccanneers (Super Bowl XXXIIIX World Champions, NFC Southern Champions, Winners of 11 games, etc.) vs. skins.

My favorite part, where you hyped up the Bucs so much and couldn't even capitalize Skins. :laugh: Nice job.

You called your own team "Pewter Pirates."

Pewter Pirates.

That sounds so ridiculous that I don't even need to continue.

When he first said that a few weeks ago, I think it was Bubba who said "Pewter Pirates" sounded like a couple of drag queens going hunting for antiques... :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

what roman numeral is XXXIIIX? Do you mean XXXVII? So are you trying to go to Super Bowl XL or XXXX? Because i definitely think the bucs can get to Super Bowl XXXX since it doesn't exist. Is this why the bucs ticket password was BUCSPLAYOFF? Did they know that would probably still be too hard for buc fans to remember?

Anyways, we all missed you here, too. All that needs to be said is - SEAN TAYLOR MAKES JOHN LYNCH HITS LOOK LIKE A WATER BALLOON TRYING TO BREAK A BUNKER. He was hurt last game - if Galloway likes walking he won't go across the middle.

Enjoy your quest for Super Bowl XXXX; i know we'll be in Detroit at Super Bowl XL.
