You know what time it is, Nation. Our Silver is polished and our Black is pitch (not exactly sure what I meant by that). Basically I’m saying its game day. But you knew that already.
What you might not know is what Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach Greg Schinao would discuss if he had a radio show. Or what kind of a music career Vincent Jackson would have if he went R&B instead of pro ball.
To get answers to these pressing questions we reached out to Josh Hill the editor of The Pewter Plank. Put it this way, if the Bucs are your crack then my man Josh is Nino Brown and Pewter Plank is like that massive trap house from New Jack City. So sit back, relax and get ready for another exciting Sunday of Raiders football.
Q: If Greg Schiano were a radio talk show host what would his show be called and what would some of the topics be?
A: Taking a Knee with Greg Schiano. In this inspirational and upbeat show, Greg Schiano gives you kind life lessons while teaching you how to better yourself. Join him as he discusses how to make the perfect cupcake, grow the most delicious garden and how to create the perfect decorations for the holidays from materials you already own. You know, because he’s such a nice guy and in no way intimidating.
Q: Who will have more combined yards Sunday: Josh Freeman & Doug Martin or Carson Palmer & Darren McFadden?
A: I’m leaning towards somebody in the stands streaking and getting more yards than all four. But in all seriousness, both of these defenses are pretty shoddy at best which means we could see a shootout, but we’ll likely see a lot of dropped balls with the occasional spectacular catch or drive. It’s not going to be pretty but I’m edging towards it being pretty much even when it comes to total yards between the four.
Q: Better color: Orange Creamsicle or Pewter?
A: I, nor has anyone, really had an issue with the creamsicle theme. The only thing about those throwbacks is the homoerotic pirate winking at you, because nothing says we’re coming for you more than a gay pirate. That being said, the Pewter is kind of a bland color that only matches with a few colors, luckily ones the Bucs picked out. It’s s tough call, as I love the old orange but the new set of colors (are they still new per say?) have really stuck with me. I’m sure if you tune into Greg Schiano’s radio show he’ll discuss this topic and tell you what colors perfectly accent one another.
Q: If Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson were a 90’s R&B group what would their name be and what would be the title of their hit single?
A: Balls Deep, and I imagine they’d dress just like Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg did for all those SNL videos. And they wouldn’t have just one hit single, they’d be hitting it again, and again and again. The way it would work is Jackson is the mega star, the one all the ladies want but Williams is the one with the talent and when the band breaks up, he goes on to have the hit solo career. But while they were together they were changing the face of music and raking in awards.
And finally the most important question of all…
Q: Mike Williams: Start or Sit?
A: Start. Everyone’s still focused on Vincent Jackson, and historically this season when that’s happened Williams has scored. He’s a deep threat and he’s needed another guy to take coverage off him and when the Bucs got Jackson, I knew this would all happen. Eventually defenses will shift and focus on Williams, but then that means Jackson’s unaccounted for. That hasn’t happened yet and the Raiders are going to struggle a bit with Williams much to the benefit of those who own Williams.
