Will Tampa Bay D shut out Seahawks?

Ok sorry, you're right. The center stepped on Brunnell who then fell back into Portis as Brunnell was tryin to hand the ball off. Thus, the ball slammed into Portis' chest and ricocheted off for a fumble which was then recovered by TB for the touchdown.

Anyway, the point was that TB's only score came from a complete blunder by the Skins offense.

It was the offense's fault, not the defenses, that Tampa lost to the Skins. They held Washington to 16 and scored the majority of the points. Tampa will be a good starting D this year, though Seattle is looking like one of the least favorable matchups.

The over/under on the Seattle/TB game is 37 - the second lowest this week behind only the Pitt/Balt game (at 35 1/2).

I think that the TB D is getting way too much respect. It won't be a shootout because both defenses are pretty decent but I expect them to score combined, over 40. TB will not be able to shut down the Seattle offense.

TBs linebackers are still pretty solid between Brooks, Quarles, and Gold. I think their secondary is actually pretty suspect. They have Ronde Barber who I have always felt was overrated, and after that you are talking about some pretty marginal DBs and safeties.

Feel free to start SEA's WRs with confidence.

Tampa won't shut Seattle down, but I can see them containing Seattle to an extent. After Portis' long run, they did a nice job of shutting down the running game. Don't under estimate this defense. I do expect Seattle to put up 20+ points however, and either K-Rob of D-Jax is going to have a big game.

Ahhhhhh, just enjoying the Hawks love...you know, it's kinda nice when your team doesn't suck. Not a feeling Hawks fans have had a lot.

The problem for the Tampa defense is the Tampa Offense. The Defense is going to be on the field a lot in this game as Seattle's defense will be getting a lot of three and outs.

The best player on the Seahawks this week might just be the punt returner if you are in a league that rewards return yardage.

Seattle should still score quite a few points. I'm even sitting the Tampa D in favor of Buffalo (@Oak).
