A day after the critical Pittsburgh game, Pro Bowl RB Warrick Dunn will discuss his play with Buc fans on the Pewter Power Hour


RB Warrick Dunn will speak out with Buc fans on Monday night's Pewter Power Hour

Warrick Dunn may be surprisingly powerful for his size, but the 5-8, 190-pound back has been to two Pro Bowls primarily because he is so difficult to pin down.

Lightning-quick cuts, well-timed spin moves and an extra gear in the open field make Dunn one of the NFL's most elusive running backs, a home run threat somewhat in the mold of Barry Sanders.

Off the field, Dunn is no more easy to pin down, preferring a quick trip home to a commercial shoot or a press conference. He's one of the few Tampa Bay Buccaneers stars not to have a radio show or a regular segment on a local newscast. Though well-spoken during interviews and cordial with the media, Dunn generally avoids the spotlight.

So he is at once the brightest of Buccaneer stars and one of the lesser-known figures for the team's fans. That makes him the perfect guest for the Pewter Power Hour.

On Monday, October 22, at 7:30 p.m., Dunn will appear on the Pewter Power Hour, the unique call-in show on 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 Dunn need only call the Pewter Power Hour's toll-free number on Monday evening and wait to be connected with the team's leading rusher.

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 Dunn, such Buc big-timers as 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 and listen to the frank discussion of pressing team topics.

This week, it's Dunn's turn, and he'll be taking calls just a day after taking hits against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Raymond James Stadium. The Bucs-Steelers contest, a critical one for Tampa Bay's playoff hopes, figures to be a showcase for two determined running games, so Dunn's performance may play a large role in the game's outcome.

Whatever happens on Sunday against the Steelers, you can talk it over with Dunn on Monday night. It's the Pewter Power Hour, and Warrick Dunn will be there. Will you?
