Bucs ready to go at The Stick
I refuse to call this stadium Monster Park, so it will heretofore be known as Candlestick Park (in the blog, at least).
Anyway, the teams are down on the field getting ready for kickoff. Mike Nolan even broke out a suit today. Must be a big game (not!).
Here are the lineup details for Tampa Bay. Fullback B.J. Askew didn't make the trip, so he's obviously inactive today. Byron Storer makes his second consecutive start in Askew's place. Elsewhere, linebacker Ryan Nece will be inactive. He's been nursing a groin injury the last couple weeks.
The remaining inactives are RB Ken Darby, DE Patrick Chukwurah (hamstring), G Dan Buenning, TE Keith Heinrich and DT Greg Peterson. The emergency quarterback (No. 3) is Bruce Gradkowski. Meanwhile, defensive end Greg Spires is active and should see some time in place of Chukwurah.
I'll be here all afternoon posting in the comments section below to do a little give and take with everyone. Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to post any comments on your minds.
