So the Super Bowl matchup is set. I'm not at all looking forward to the "Gruden vs. Raiders" hype I am sure to hear all week, as I think it means nothing and really couldn't care less.

As for the game itself, I think the Raiders offense plays right into the hands of the Bucs defense. Oakland doesn't run the ball, and the Bucs are an awesome pass defense team. The Raiders are going to put points on the board, but I feel confident the Bucs can stop their attack.

On the other side of the ball, the Bucs offense has been running smoothly in the postseason, including moving the ball well against the only defense in the NFL that can rival their own in Philly. The Bucs short passing game should be enough against a Raider defense that will probably stuff the Tampa Bay ground game.

Preliminary prediction: Buccaneers 28, Raiders 24*

*Prediction subject to change

EDIT: Damnit, Guru, if you could fix the title to Bucs vs. Raiders for me I would appreciate it.

Tampa Bay-Oakland is going to rule.

Can't wait for Media Day.

My prediction: Raiders 27, Bucs 21.

Well, this thread went from Bucs vs. Rams to Packers vs. Broncos. Now, that *is* a Super Bowl matchup, but not this year's (and, quite frankly, it's a Super Bowl the Packer faithful would rather forget). Third time's a charm?

hmmm...let's see...

Oakland likes to throw. The Bucs secondary is pretty damn good. The Raiders could run, but generally don't. Still...with Garner, Rice, Brown, and Porter, they're gonna score points. The Bucs offense is playing better than it has all year. The Raiders defense? Not so good, with all the injuries.

Maybe I could pick on who's gonna raise my level of aggravation this week: Warren Sapp, or anyone associated with Oakland who whines about Gruden leaving?

Eh...I'll pick on a whim. Oakland, 24-20.

I like defense. The Raider's defense is pretty good. The Bucs defense is great.

Bucs - 27
Raiders - 17

(Of course, I went 0-2 last week, so I've probably just jinx the Bucs!)

I'll go out on a limb and say:

Bucs 24, Raiders 17.

Well, maybe not too much of a limb.. might just be another trunk.

Gilbert Brown steals Rikishi's finisher, shredding Terrell Davis's knee but good. Pack 28-17...

...but at Return to Titletown II (big party parading Coach Lombardi's trophy around Lambeau Field), Holmgren and Wolf come to blows over who gets the credit. Build to a Holmgren/Wolf "briefcase-on-a-pole" match at WM (in Seattle...ha!), reffed by Bob Harlan. Favre does a run-in with the Lombardi Trophy, and clobbers...who?

The Vikings cheer for good measure, all except for Randy Moss, who weeps from his underground cage.

Raiders 21, Bucs 14

Just because Madden hates me, but didn't hate me qutie as much when I was the Raiders in 2002.

What were you drinking when you made this thread. I'm not talking about the title but your prediction. lol. Great this looks like the official SuperBowl prediction thread and we can't even get the correct teams on the title. We truly are a bunch of wieners

Raiders 24, Bucs 20. It's got a chance to be a real great game.

Initially it said Bucs vs. Rams, then someone thought they would play a joke.
