Is being over .500 in December even a thing?

I think it's against the rules.

Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes (No. 24) is back practicing today.

It doesn't matter how it looks, the Bucs need to find a way to grind out a victory. It's time to establish a home field advantage. They've done a terrific job on the road, but to be a true contender, they must be a consistent winner at home.

A lot of respect for Hawks, it's going to take a terrific effort in all 3 phases. As Warren Sapp would say "time to put your big boy pants on for this game".

This is a good test.

Facing a top tier team at home, where we tend to struggle a lot. Winston vs that secondary. If we can somehow come out on top, then I will buy into the playoffs hype.

It's basically a must-win if we want a chance at the playoffs.

Looks like Pamphile has cleared concussion protocol and Grimes is back to full participant. This looks to be the healthiest we've been in a long time and going against a pretty banged up Seahawks team. I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about this game.

A win would be huge. Would be great for this team to get a 3 game steak going. Wish it wasn't the Seahwaks this week..

Pounded a weak Bears team. Big win against a top end team last week. Guys getting healthy this week. I think it's a perfect time to play the Hawks.

Agreed on the timing. They need to compete and win at home against an elite team to have any shot of making playoff runs. It would be great to see the Bucs as the bully on the field again. It has been way too long.

Do you believe in moral victories? I don't. You either win or you lose. However, if we can keep it close and give them a hard fought game, I think it will do wonders for this young team. This is prob the biggest game we have played in years. To come out on top would be YUUUUGE. Especially if Arizona beats Atlanta like I think they will. I already know I'm guna blow a few gaskets. I cant stand Seattle. They are my most hated team in pro sports. Went on their facebook the other day and saw multiple fans saying how they will be at the game representing the "12's". Where were they in 2008 and 2010? There wasn't a single Seattle fan in attendance. That's beside the point. If we come out and play mistake free football, we have a chance at winning this game. Keep Wilson in the pocket, convert third downs, I don't think its crazy to think we can win if we do those things.

I think he has one of the highest passer ratings in the NFL from the pocket.

Earl Thomas is out. That sucks for them but it's huge for us. Bennett and Procise are also out.

We've got Quizz, Grimes, Stocker, and Verner all as questionable.

Seattle is a bit banged up. But jimmy graham seems to have resurfaced to his old self. Wilson is on fire.

Seattle has one of the worst OL in the league. We need to generate some pressure and have lavonte spy Wilson. I'm worried about Graham against our safety play still.

Offensively we need to run the ball effectively. Even without thomas their secondary is tough to throw on. Winston just needs to keep progressing off these last few weeks. Martin needs to have a day for himself.

No prediction but I expect a close game.

The Seahawks have one of the weaker OLINES we've faced in recent weeks. I can see this game being close if Winston manages to protect the football. I'm not sure what to expect defensively though if we cannot get after Wilson. Graham and Baldwin have been Tampa Bay killers so I expect them to have a very busy day. Would love to see us win and shift the culture but I'm tempering my expectations.
