Buccaneers play their first preseason and home game in 2012 as they host the Tennessee Titans. Bucs are coming off a  win 20-7 at Miami, while the Seahawks defeated the Titans 27-17 in Seattle.

Buccaneers leads the preseason series over the Titans 6 games to 2, but the Tennessee defeated Tampa Bay in their last preseaon meeting 27-20 at LP Field in Nashville back on August 9, 2009.

Titans, and Oilers franchise, though, lead the overall regular season series over Tampa Bay 8-2, and have split their last two games 1-1, home and away. Titans defeated the Bucs in their last meeting at LP Field by a touchdown 23-17 in Nashville, but the Bucs defeated the Titans by a field in a nationally-televised game at Ray Jay 13-10, back on October 14, 2007.

Chris Myers and former Buc player John Lynch will announce the TV game play-by-play and analysis, for WTSP CBS 10 on tape delay beginning tonight at 11:30PM Eastern Standard Time. WTSP Sports Director Dave Wirth will also report from the Buccaneers sidelines at Ray Jay during the game.

Bucs/Titans game will also be replayed on the NFL Network tonight at 12:00AM, 10:00AM Sunday Morning, Wednesday afternoon at 1:00PM, and Friday morning at 10:00AM, all Eastern Times.

Gene Deckerhoff and Dave Moore will also announce the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter T.J. Rives beginning with ore-game show at 5:00PM, and the game coverage at 7:30PM, simulcast on flagship stations WDAE 620AM 'The Sports Animal,' WFUS Country 103.5, and the Buccaneers Raio Network.

Partly cloudy skies with scattered thunderstorms is forecast for tonight's 7:35PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff at Raymond James Stadium, along with the monsoon conditions at 87 degrees, feels like 95 degrees, 63% humidity, 40% precipitation, and western winds at 6 miles per hour.

Visiting Titans will dress in their light blue jerseys, with white pants, while the host Buccaneers will dress in their matching white jerseys and pants.

Josh Freeman will start and lead the Bucs at QB. First and second unit of veterans in both the offense and defense of both teams will continue to play by the end of the first half, before the rookies, reserve and signed veterans and free agents enter the field, and set the course of the rest of tonight's game as at the same time, showcase their talents in front of the fans, and continued evalations by the coaching staffs ro earn themselves into the final 53-man roster. First major cutdown for all NFL teams is 80 players by Ausgust 28.

NO injuries to the Bucs players, as both teams play on the field at Ray Jay with the replacement officials, and also as many of the rookies and signed free agents and veterans earn roster spots for the upcoming regular season.

Wand searches now required for fans at Buc home games


TAMPA — Security screenings that for six seasons forced Tampa Bay Buccaneer fans to submit to patdown searches at the stadium end today — replaced instead with sweeps from magnetic wands.

The required wandings at Raymond James Stadium were announced Thursday by the Tampa Sports Authority. They begin with the preseason game against the Tennessee Titans at 7:30 p.m. today.

With exceptions for medical reasons, fans who refuse to be wanded will not be let in the stadium, the authority said.

"We're optimistic that as fans get accustomed to this procedure, it will result in less time in line and smaller crowds at the gate prior to kickoff," said Mickey Farrell, operations director at the stadium, in a statement. "And as always, we encourage fans to give themselves a little extra time when planning their arrival."

A pilot program began at the end of last season at several stadium gates, said Barbara Casey, a spokeswoman for the authority.

"The response has been very positive. Some people don't particularly like to be touched," she said. "Everyone wants to come and feel safe and comfortable. We are just trying to facilitate that."

If the Bucs sell out a home games, there will be 270 wands in use, Casey said.

Ending the patdown policy comes years after the sports authority won a lengthy court battle to keep the practice in place.

In 2005, the NFL mandated patdowns for all its team venues.

That same year, Bucs season ticket-holder Gordon Johnston filed a lawsuit calling the patdown an infringement on his Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure. Local courts agreed with him. But when the case climbed to higher appellate levels, panels ruled that anyone who had bought a ticket had agreed to a patdown search. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case in 2009.

Johnston, 67, a civics teacher at Tampa Bay Technical High School, said Thursday he hasn't been to a game in five years.

"Definitely, wanding is better," Johnston said. "Now, I'll consider going to some games."

Wand searches, which are used to detect metal, will be mandatory for all fans except those with pacemakers and other heart issues.

With the change in policy also comes a change in funding, Casey said.

The NFL purchased the first 100 magnetic wands. And Casey said the sports authority, a public agency, has an agreement with the Bucs that the team would pay the costs of anything over the price of the patdown searches.

That means the majority of the cost of converting to magnetic wands was absorbed by organizations other than the TSA.

Johnston said that's good news.

"I didn't like that the taxpayers had to pay for something that the NFL decided was necessary," he said.

Eric LeGrand will be doing the coin flip. That should be inspirational. Noticed a lot of LeGrand jerseys being worn at most of the preseason camps by fans.

What to expect from the Titans: Quarterback Jake Locker will get his turn to start after coming off the bench in relief of Matt Hasselbeck last week in Seattle. It’s a big game for Locker, who’s expected to play 20-25 snaps, or close to a full half. The Titans would like to see better results from running back Chris Johnson, so he’ll get more carries than last week. Defensively, the first-teamers will be on the field longer than they were against Seattle. Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said there’s a chance he might make sure a few backups — possibly cornerback Ryan Mouton and safety Robert Johnson — get some work with the first team.

What to expect from the Buccaneers: Quarterback Josh Freeman played one series in Tampa Bay’s win over Miami in the preseason opener. Freeman is expected to play an additional series or two against the Titans, along with the rest of the front-liners. First-year coach Greg Schiano wants to use the game to evaluate backups, however. After sitting out last week, first-round pick Mark Barron, a safety, is expected to make his NFL debut. Tight end Dallas Clark and cornerback Aqib Talib are also expected to play after sitting out the preseason opener.

Good to hear John will do the play-by-play. I'll probably watch on tape delay tonight at 11:30
