Breakdown Of Monday’s Afternoon Practice

August 8th, 2011

Derek “Old School” Fournier of details what he saw at the Bucs afternoon practice Monday.

To reinforce a couple of “Old School’s” items:

* Derek disagrees with Joe as to Josh Johnson’s performance. Joe was looking specifically at throwing accuracy and Johnson was accurate when Joe watched him. Derek was discussing his play-making decisions. Joe did see one play that backs up what Derek said. There was a play that Johnson threw into traffic over the middle and it was an incomplete pass. LeGarrette Blount ran a wheel route in the flat and headed toward the corner of the end zone and was wide open. He was visible frustrated that Johnson missed him.

* Josh Freeman was simply spectacular in the afternoon practice. Joe has never seen this kind of accuracy from a Bucs quarterback. More important, Freeman was putting balls where defenders had no chance of getting to the ball.

    Great videos, love the updates. Is Grimm looking any better at these practices or does he still have his step to find?

  2. Derek 'OldSchool' Fournier Says:

    My frustration with Josh (Johnson) is that he should be able to see the plays developing and make the throws. He has the tools and has shown an ability to progress through his reads. He just seems to feel safer checking down and that will kill him.

    Let’s just hope Josh Johnson never has to be forced onto the field to make those throws. Let’s just keep Freeman upright, then we won’t have to worry about it.

  4. Joe Says:


    Joe hasn’t Grimm make any splash plays nor has Joe seen Grimm embarrassed either.

  5. Derek 'OldSchool' Fournier Says:

    Grimm just looks slow and that seems to be due to recovery. Each day he gets a little better. Only safeties to pop have been Sean Jones and Larry Asante
