One of the leading touchdown scorers in team history, Dave Moore will share his insights Monday night on the Pewter Power Hour
After defeating the Minnesota Vikings, 41-14, on Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 3-3 heading into a difficult game at Lambeau Field. Like many of his teammates, tight end Dave Moore has seen this before.
Of course, he's also seen an 0-5 start, not to mention a 5-0 beginning and just about everything in between. You see, Dave Moore has been with the team since midway through 1992, making him the longest tenured Buccaneer currently on the roster. Moore has been teammates with Vinny Testaverde, Alvin Harper, Santana Dotson, Reggie Cobb, Mark Carrier, Jackie Harris, Trent Dilfer, Errict Rhett, Hardy Nickerson, Brad Culpepper, Keyshawn Johnson and Simeon Rice.
Oh, and Dan Marino, but that was in another life, a long time ago, when Moore played part of his rookie '92 season with the Miami Dolphins, who drafted him in the seventh round.
Since then, Moore has seen the Buccaneers transform from league doormats to perennial playoff contenders. What he has not yet seen, and what he and his teammates desperately want to experience is a berth in the Super Bowl.
Can the Bucs realize that goal this year? Perhaps the domination of Minnesota is a sign that the team is closer to making it happen than it appeared a few weeks before. Perhaps we could get a better feel for Tampa Bay's chances by getting the inside perspective from Moore, the long-time Buccaneer veteran
You can do just that tonight. Just one night after the big win over the Vikings, you can talk directly to Dave Moore and ask him whatever is on your mind.
That's because tonight, at 7:30 p.m., Moore will appear on the Pewter Power Hour, the unique call-in show on Buccaneers.com that allows fans to speak directly with prominent figures from the Bucs' locker room. Tampa Bay fans who would like to have a one-on-one conversation with Moore need only call the Pewter Power Hour's toll-free number on Monday evening and wait to be connected with the veteran Buccaneer.
The Pewter Power Hour's phone number is: 1-866-783-2680.
The concept of the show is simple: Every Monday, you have the opportunity to make a free phone call from anywhere in the United States and find on the other end a guest directly from the Bucs' locker room. Before Moore, such Buc big-timers as Warrick Dunn, Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Mike Alstott, Ronde Barber, Kenyatta Walker and Martin Gramatica have appeared on the Pewter Power Hour (visit the PPH Archive), spending anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour sharing frank opinions directly with fans. Across the nation, Tampa Bay fans can tune in to the audio stream on Buccaneers.com and listen to the frank discussion of pressing team topics.
This week, it's Moore's turn. If you want to talk to him about his touchdown against the Vikings, or perhaps the team's improved run-blocking or the Green Bay game ahead, this is your chance.
It's the Pewter Power Hour, and Dave Moore will be there. Will you?
