I was just thinking how the heat played a major factor in the eagles game with tampa (i,e; McNabb vomiting). Does anyone know what the forecast in tampa will be this weekend? I hope Sean runs the daylights out of the team for all the mistakes, penalties, and turnovers because they will need the conditioning for this weekend. Kinda scared of Tampa, they have been playing well and this game makes me nervous. Although every game makes me nervous (its like I'm playing or got money riding it or something).

What is the status on Duece? I'm one of those die-hard duece fans, who think as long as he gets 20-25 touches a game, WE WIN. Duece will need to be ready conditioning wise, which may be a problem nursing the knee and hamstring. One other thing, Lets please go deep more often!!! Didn't Tampa's cb-Kelly go down with an injury a week or two ago?

80 is the projected high for Sunday... So it will be hot on the field, but not like the 110 or whatever it was on the field for the Philly game...

[IIRC] ESPN Radio was saying McNabbs vomiting was due to a long night at the bar... somebody's birthday I think.

I live in Tampa and it has been getting cooler lately. I am not saying that it is going to be cold but I would assume it is not going to end up like the Philly game

Since we practice in virtually the same environment as TB, is it really an advantage to TB? Didn't the Saints just do a full pre season in that baking sauna that is Nawlins? No advantage to the Bucs.

Yeah I don't think the heat is too much of a factor when you have two teams that are from basically the same weather environment.

Philly practices in Philly...you know, up north. We practice down south. Not a factor.

No problem, we are getting our awesome winter weather right now. A little cooler.

Sunday will be upper 70's low humidity and clear.

Will we be forced to wear our black jerseys? That will make it hotter, but also need to know which to wear to the game.
