Questionable for the Buc's today: WR Antonio Bryant (knee), WR Michael Clayton (chest), and WR Joey Galloway (groin). QB Jeff Garcia is probable (Calf/Pinky/Pocket book).

Questionable for the Saint's today: RB Deuce McAllister (knee), CB Mike McKenzie (knee), and RB Aaron Stecker (hamstring).

Today marks the start of the regular season... Thank goodness it's back. I couldnt be more psyched up for today's action. Here's a couple things I'm interested in seeing:

Will the Defensive Line be able to supply the necessary pressure to let the LB's and DB's do their thing?

Is WR Joey Galloway 100%? How will Antonio Bryant look today? Will Dexter Jackson get looks with the offense?

Will the the offensive line be able to carry the load Davin Joseph has left behind? Can Earnest Graham make the defense respect him and not put added pressure on our feeble QB?

Who's going to be that third down possession receiver? My money is on Ike Hilliard, with Stovall potentially giving him a run for his money. How much of Mike Clayton will we see today?

Are the Saints really as good and improved as the entire media thinks they are? These questions will be answered today...

Go BUCS!!!!!
