When: 1:00pm Est Sunday
The Playoff push begins NOW. I know we say it all the time, but this is a MUST Win. This game sets the rest of the season in motion. We lose today and you just know the season is pretty much over. We win decisively today and you may wanna book some Playoff Tickets. The Falcons have a two game winning streak going, but they are clearly beatable. QB Byron Leftwich will get the start today, having not started the past two games (in which the Falcons won). There's no way he'll be in any kind of rhythm and to make sure he's not; Gaines Adams, Jovan Haye, and Greg White will have to put pressure on the QB early and often.
We need this win in the worst way. QB Jeff Garcia can hush critics and restore confidence in his fan base with a consistent and error free performance today. Hopefully the Center-QB exchange will be on point today....
For the Bucs:
Questionable: RB B.J. Askew (ankle), LB Quincy Black (hamstring), DE Patrick Chukwurah (shoulder), WR Michael Clayton (ankle), RB Earnest Graham (ankle), RB Michael Pittman (ankle), T Jeremy Trueblood (shoulder)
Out: DE Greg Spires (calf)
For the Falcons:
Out:WR Joe Horn (hamstring)
I can't wait to watch this game. This Bye Week felt extra long for some reason. We certainly needed it though.
