--------------------------------------------------------------

DOUBTFUL for the Giants:
CB Sam Madison (stomach), C Shaun O'Hara (knee)

CB Kevin Dockery (hip), LB Kawika Mitchell (knee), DE Dave Tollefson (concussion)

PROBABLE for the Giants:

This is IT, the Playoffs are officially a Reality for our Bucs...

We are definitely going to miss LB Cato June, but I feel Ryan Nece will do a fine job filling in and to be honest I think we didn't use Cato June correctly this season.

Greg White (8 sacks), Gaines Adams (6 sacks), Jovan Haye (6 sacks), Kevin Carter (3 sacks), Greg Spires (2 sacks), Chris Hovan (1 sack), and Patrick Chukwurah (1 sack) MUST pressure QB Eli Manning in order for our Defense to do what it does = Create Turnovers

Giants RB Brandon Jacobs has over a 1,000 yards rushing this season, so LB's Derrick Brooks, Barrett Ruud, and Ryan Nece will have their hands full. Game Guarentee: S Jermaine Phillips knocks Jacobs off his feet and out of the game for a series

Our young Offensive Line will have its hands full against the Giants Defensive Linemen in Osi Umenyiora (13 sacks), Justin Tuck (10 sacks), Michael Strahan (9 sacks), and Fred Robbins (5.5 sacks).

Chris Berman, The Swami, from ESPN's NFL Sunday Countdown Crew picked the Bucs to beat the Giants 23-19... Time will tell
