    I hope you guys are correct, but I am worried about an upset here. JW has to stay turnover free.

    I expect us to be rusty and will take a couple series to get in the groove. Bucs win.

    All that matters is the 4th Quarter Score at the end of the game. My Prediction is Tampa 31 & Bears 17. I say HP throws for 400 yards. But Defense has 2 picks with 1 score. Fire the Cannons. Go bucs

    Hard to guess a score I didn’t get see Bears week 1. We were in middle of a hurricane and didn’t watch much football last Sunday. Lol. I still think we are a better team overall and we are at home. We should win by at least 10 points. Not sure if the extra time helps or makes them rusty. Either way I don’t think we blow them out likel last year. Will take time to get rolling. Will see today I guess I’ll be in my West Club seats ready!

    I’m not worried about the offense here at all. I’m not worried period.

    To me the real test is whether our defense is ready to rumble. If they are, I smell a shutout against the Bears.

    I’m terrible at predictions .. my hope is a 28-0 score at RayJay today.

      It should have been 29-0, so you almost nailed it!

      1. 5.1.1


        Yeah …. was yelling at the TV …. don’t let them score! Preserve the shutout! Didn’t work.

        But I’ll settle for the result! Great defensive effort … if the offense had just been able to sustain a couple of drives in the second half, they could have pitched a no-hitter.
