Time: Bucs players may think they’ve gone to football heaven.

Referees: Craig Wrolstad and his band will work the game. And by Sharp analysis of football, home teams are struggling with Wrolstad and his outfit working the game. Additionally, Wrolstad and his gang are used to having an itchy trigger finger for the setter’s brutal penalties, including the whole first flag of the game last year when the Bucs hosted the Eagles in the playoffs. Otherwise, Wrolstad and his team let them act as referees.

Outlook: Joe hopes Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich gets the message. Last week he had one of the most irresponsible game plans Joe has ever seen from an NFL player. The Bucs had lags all over the Pittsburgh secondary and Leftwich instead decided to do the one thing that gave the Steelers a fighting chance: run. Mike Evans had an entire target in the second half – one! This loss was on Leftwich, plain and simple. The Bucs can’t [email protected] and lose this game. If the Bucs do it, Joe could jump out the window or play tag in traffic. If Leftwich pulls off the same stunt today as it did last week, Bucs shooters need to seriously consider upsetting the offensive side of the ball in a desperate bid to salvage the season. To paraphrase Jack Buck, the Bucs wouldn’t have a losing record with a healthy Tom Brady, would they?

Fun facts: How bad is the Stinking Panthers attack? Only 22.2% of his plays, according to Sharp Football Analysis, result in a first down. This is the lowest rate in the league. And on top of that, they dropped receiver Robbie Anderson and Christian McCaffrey, two of their best weapons. … The Bucs are the only NFL team that hasn’t allowed a touchdown outside the red zone.
