Hey, you know how the Tampa Bay Bucs are a surprising third overall in our ratings so far this season? Well, it's going to be tough to stay there with harder opposition coming up... not to mention that they'll now be without their starting free safety for the rest of the year. Not for an injury, that we would understand. No, it is because he's an idiot. Tanard Jackson just got dinged for his third time breaking the league's substance abuse policy. Not PEDs, folks. Recreational drugs or alcohol. He's suspended for 16 games, so the rest of this year and then the first two games of 2011.
Better yet, this could mean the return of Sabby Piscitelli to the Bucs starting lineup. Rejoice, Tampa fans. By which I actually mean, "do not rejoice."

Bill Connelly takes a look at the early-season S&P+ outliers and whether his eyeballs agree or disagree with the stats. Spoiler: Alabama is underrated. Alabama! Underrated!
