The five things to watch, according to Roy Cummings:
Derrick Ward vs Kareem Huggins - IWill Derrick Ward bring his a-game or will Kareem Huggins continue to show him up?
Bucs run plays vs pass plays - Will offensive coordinator Greg Olson continue to use a balanced attack?
Z slot - WRs Reggie Brown, Arrelious Benn and Michael Clayton have another chance to claim that spot. None have yet made the case.
Quarterbacks - The Bucs could be forced to open the season with Josh Johnson, or maybe even Rudy Carpenter, at quarterback.
Third Cornerback - In the Bucs' defense, the third corner is almost like a starter. Biggers has been the best of the three players fighting for the job. Can he keep it up?
