Bucs-Broncos live from Mile High



We're here in the press box at Invesco Field on a beautiful day in Denver. Before we get into some of the ins and outs of today's game, a little news.

Jeff Garcia is now the No. 2 quarterback behind Brian Griese, with Luke McCown the inactive third quarterback. If you read the St. Petersburg Times last week, you knew that indications pointed to the Bucs making a change in their quarrterback lineup.

With Griese having thrown six interceptions in the past two games, he's clearly been put on notice that he's got to be more consistent. This has to be a sign that coach Jon Gruden is at least willing to make a change if he deems it necessary.

As for the other inactive players, the one mild surprise is that tackle Anthony Davis is not active. That doesn't seem like a big deal, I realize, but it's interesting because there really isn't a backup tackle active in the event Donald Penn or Jeremy Trueblood went down. In a related matter, Davin Joseph is active, which tells me he's definitely playing.

As we told you last night, safety Sabby Piscitelli (elbow), WR Joey Galloway (foot) and FB B.J. Askew (hamstring) did not make the trip.

I'll be here throughout the game to answer your questions and share some thoughts and analysis. See me in the comments section below.
