Tennessee Titans KTE: Tampa Buccanneers Skill Positions

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquired Jeff Garcia in the offseason via free agency.  The Tennessee Titans saw Garcia last year when he played for the Philadelphia Eagles. Garcia threw 48 passes that day completing 26 of them in a 31-13 win for the Titans.  Garcia went on to lead the Eagles to the playoffs and is playing pretty well this season.  He is completing 67% of his passes and has 4 TDs with no INTs.  He has good escapability.  The Titans will need to try and keep him in the pocket.

The Buccaneers running back position has been devestated by injury this season.  Cadillac Williams is out for the season.  Michael Pittman is out for the next 6-8 weeks.  Earnest Graham will be the Buccaneers starting running back on Sunday.  He has ran the ball pretty well this season averaging 4.1 yards per carry.  They also signed Zach Crockett this week.

The Buccaneers really only have 2 receivers who have done anything this year.  Joey Galloway has 18 catches for 306 yards.  That is 17 yards per catch if you are scoring at home.  He is obviously a big play guy.  Ike Hilliard leads the Bucs in receptions with 23.  He is questionable for tomorrow's game with a shoulder injury.
