Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Monday, September 28th, 2008
Noon CST, FOX
This is an open thread for the game.
Inactives from NFL.com:
Packers inactives: QB Brian Brohm (3rd), SS Atari Bigby, RB Kregg Lumpkin, CB Al Harris, FB Korey Hall, T Breno Giacomini, WR James Jones, DE Jeremy Thompson.
Analysis: WR Jordy Nelson will serve as the Packers’ No. 3 wideout with Jones out of action.
Buccaneers inactives: QB Jeff Garcia (3rd), QB Josh Johnson, FB B.J. Askew, LB Matt McCoy, G Davin Joseph, T James Lee, WR Joey Galloway, DT Ryan Sims.
Analysis: QB Brian Griese will continue to start in the absence of Garcia. WRs Antonio Bryant and Ike Hilliard are nice fantasy options, especially with Galloway inactive.
As expected, Packers starting S Atari Bigby, CB Al Harris, and FB Korey Hall are out for this game, and rookie 2nd round pick CB Pat Lee will play in his first NFL game. Hopefully Woodson, Collins, and Rouse are all feeling good, and the loss of Harris and Bigby won't be a big deal.
If someone had said to me that Davin Joseph and Joey Galloway were the two best players on the Bucs' offense, I wouldn't have argued. They are still playing well without them, but it sure doesn't help them.
I was really psyched last week for Dallas and was expecting a big win, but this week I'm really worried. Maybe that means a win for sure since my gut is trending wrong.
