Live blog -- too bad no Tampa WRs will show

Joey Galloway is playing for New England and neither Antonio Bryant nor Michael Clayton, Tampa Bay's starting wide receivers, are playing for the Buccaneers tonight.

So the Dolphins rookie cornerbacks may have to wait until the regular season for their first serious NFL test.

(Yes, I know New Orleans is a great passing team and Miami finishes the preseason there next week. But let's face it, the Saints aren't going to let their starters play too long in the final preseason game.)

So this is bad news. But it is also good news.

At minimum, both Sean Smith and Vontae Davis are getting broken in sloooowly. Remember that last week the Panthers kept both Steve Smith and Muhsin Muhammad -- their starters -- on the bench.

Anyway, the live blog starts in the comments section below. Let's get to it.

The d-line is just getting manhandled. Mando, remind them not to forget their purses on the way home

we are getting pushed around up front

Anyone seen the dolphins? These r the scrubs right ?

What's going on????

No pass rush

Is our defense awake tonight

Tampa has a very good oline

Coverage sack.

finally, some pressure. Thank you Mr. Langford.

OMG!!!!!!!! WHERE IS THE PASS RUSH!?!?!?!?!?!?! Finally!!!!!!!!!

Int int

Come on. Get the darn ball on the ground already!!!

QAM radio guys are ripping the pass rush & the safeties......what are the teevee doods saying?

We get ZERO loose balls. That has to change come September 13th.

There we go, Bucs get lucky twice, a blocked punt and a forced fumble on one elongated drive, not bad TD or not

Mando, man what are you talking about. The defense stopped them if not for a play that never!!! happens we'd be seeing the wildcat now

Hold them to a field goal after the lucky break tampa got


JT looks old, puffing and no pressure.

On third down, Leftwich looks left, looks right, looks left again. And I'm in the pressbox going nuts.

where the QB pressure on leftwich????

tv guys dont know crap....strike one for anderson. was that a hold on the fumble play?

Leftcawitz has had all day to day.

Good thing their qb sucks

If Leftwich was any good we'd be down 7 right now

Sean Smith did a good job hanging in there. But that drive was piss poor pitiful!

watching leftwitch at QB for the Bucs sadly reminds me of when we had a bunch of C average journeymen QBs. Thank you Pennington and Henne.

man what a lucky bunch of losers the bucs are

thank God Leftwich sucks.

bonehead play on the blocked punt, makes our defense have to stay on the field for all that time and get gassed on the opening drive, thanx special teams!

Think how poor the pass defense is considering the QB and how brutal TB's receivers are...not good.

gibril made some needed stops. cobbs and langford's stock went up. anderson in the rear view...

If I'm a Bucs fan I'm worried about Leftwhichs accuracy and happy about the small spark Cadillac has shown after all those injuries

Tv says their Punter never had a punt blocked in 320 punts. So good for us there at least

thats was not good if it was good qb it would be a td

Not impressed with D thank god Leftwich sucks!

C'mon Ginn...

good job teddy!

there u go ginn!

Ginn returning kickoffs? At least he didn't run out of bounds

Nice speed on Ginn Jr.

I propose that the NFL change the blocked punt rule so that if it doesn't advance past the yardage needed for a first down that the receive team takes possession of the ball.

Keep Ginn as a KR, he seems to use his 5th gear more then he does as a WR

His toe was out of bounds ;)

A 3 and out here will be pretty depressing.

That first drive was a bit dissapointing, but it gives a chance to see if the can settle it down after a fluke start.

TD or bust here. We need to respond to a pretty bad first drive on D.

Who's starting opposite Ginn? Bess or Hartline?

soulja , how are you holding up ?

Armando, where do you rank tampa oline ?

I'd rather not have our one receiver have 12 men flying at him at full speed a few times a game



was that guys name trueblood. LOL

Charlie Anderson = Leon Lett

not the best way to start


Wow...That was terrible...No pressure and the secondary was lost...Crowder shifted and picked the wrong hole...Terrible

Uh oh

coverage sack not a good start

receivers are still not getting open.
