Bucs home opener underway
Sorry to be a little late getting online, a result of wireless connection issues.
Here at Raymond James Stadium, the Bucs are underway against Atlanta. Aqib Talib just had his first career interception, and the Bucs are in business at the Falcons' 20.
LB Derrick Brooks made his 194th consecutive start today, despite a strained hamstring. Brian Griese got the start at quarterback as promised.
The Bucs' inactive players today include WR Maurice Stovall, who has a shoulder injury. Michael Clayton is in the lineup after sitting out last week. Also inactive is RB Michael Bennett. Jeff Garcia is the emergency (third) quarterback.
For the Falcons, DT Grady Jackson is inactive, though it isn't clear why. Whatever the reason, the Bucs catch a break there.
I'll be here throughout, posting in the comments section just below. Feel free to join.
