The Roscoe Parrish ExperienceOctober 26th, 2012
First it was Preson Parker continuing his fumbling, bumbling punt return ways into the 2012 season. Then it was Jordan Shipley costing the Bucs dearly in Dallas while replacing injured Sammie Strougther.
And now Bucs fans have the Roscoe Parrish Experience.
He fumbled once last night, nearly a critical early turnover against Minnesota, and struggled mightily to field two other punts. He can’t even blame the wind in the old Hefty bag dome.
Parrish was a guy who had a great returner career, but the Raiders cut him in the preseason after multiple cough-ups.
Maybe Parrish can right his ship, but the Bucs have gotten a solid sampling of his work, and it’s clear he doesn’t have the jets or hands he once did.
Joe’s not sure where the Bucs turn next. Is anyone on the street? The trade deadline is Tuesday.
For those wondering, Run Michael Run Spurlock ran a punt back 28 yards last week to set up a score for Jacksonville, his new home after the Chargers cut him earlier this year. Joe’s wondering this morning why Spurlock wasn’t given a shot in the New Schiano Order, or a real chance in 2011.
