Rucker pays Tampa a visit

Interesting tidbit out of the Tampa Bay practice near Orlando, Fla., on Monday afternoon: The Bucs use a dummy made of pipes to simulate a defensive lineman when the quarterbacks work on passing drills. Last week, the dummy was fitted with a Rod Coleman jersey. Monday, a Mike Rucker jersey was on the dummy. Here’s a link to a slide show that includes a photo of the Rucker jersey:

For the Bucs' sake, I hope they don't go by the caption on the Rucker dummy picture... whoever wrote it identified the #93 jersey as being Julius Peppers.

I checked out the link to see the Buc's pipe rendition of Rucker and noticed the caption has the name wrong. They credit the No. 93 as being Peppers'.

Just like the Bucs to mix up Ruck and Pepp...in a few weeks they'll get a good double dose of both and will probably end up even more confused.

I say they make a hit on Chucky Gruden like Mike Teis got, wait til he gets close to the action and lay him out....leave it to those idiot Bucs fans and writers to screw up the numbers in the caption....Maybe Pep will leave a more lasting impression of his number in their first meeting.

September 24th the D-Line can properly re-introuce themselves to the confused Buc's offense.

That stupid contraption reminds me of a scarecrow. At least the folks at the Tampa Tribune have corrected their mistake -- the caption now reads "Mike Rucker." Give their editors credit for being wise enough to read our comments and learn something from it.
