St. Louis at Tampa Bay

Sunday 09/23 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Tampa Bay -3.5 (+103) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

Tampa Bay, 4-12 last season, is off to a 1-1 start and coming off a big win over the Saints last Sunday. They shut out New Orleans' once potent offense for nearly three full quarters. Pop Quiz: What are the two words that Philadelphia residents least want to hear? Answer: Jeff Garcia. Think they wish they still had him? Really a bigtime bonehead move to let him go in the offseason. McNabb is still hurting - you don't return to top form in less than one year after an ACL. If they had Garcia, they could have been using him. Instead, they are 0-2 and have nowhere to turn. Anyway, back to the Bucs. Garcia has played good thrown for 444 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He's a good fit for Gruden's West Coast offense. The more he plays there, the better he'll get. St. Louis has started 0-2 at home and now embark on a five game road trip. Ouch. So far, teams are taking Stephen Jackson out of the passing game by blitzing Bulger to his side (forcing him to stay in and block). Bulger has already been sacked seven times and Jackson hasn't yet gotten 100 yards on the ground. St. Louis looks completely baffled and emotionally down. We like the Bucs here at home, high off a big upset win, to handle the Rams.
