Eight Points Left On The Field

November 25th, 2012

The inability of the Bucs to convert this Gerald McCoy fumble recovery into a touchdown loomed large.

Here’s why Joe is going to need several brews to fall asleep tonight (and no, it has nothing to do with a lonely Bucs cheerleader wanting comfort on a chilly night). The Bucs all but gave this game away to the Dixie Chicks.

First there was the near-touchdown on the Mike Williams bomb to Vincent Jackson. The play seemed to be in slow motion Jackson was so open. Williams eventually got the ball to Jackson who was tackled at the three-yard line after juking out a would-be tackler.

Then the Bucs, for reasons unknown, couldn’t put the ball in the end zone. That was four points right there. Joe couldn’t help but think of the bomb Jackson caught against New Orleans but was caught from behind and the Bucs too failed to get six and lost to the Saints in a tight contest.

In the irony of ironies, Dixie Chicks coach Mike Smith this week spoke in glowing details about how the Bucs were so good at turning turnovers into points. When E.J. Biggers flattened Matty Ice forcing a fumble┬árecovered by Gerald McCoy, the Bucs couldn’t muster a first down and had to, again, settle for three.

The Bucs lost by one, after leaving as many as eight points on the field.

    And the overthrown pass to Mike Williams wide open at the front of the right side end zone on third down.

    Come on guys…. all games between good teams come down to one or two plays. To be fair, Atlanta left points on the field too. Like a missed 22 yard field goal. They also dropped an easy interception on the bucs second td drive. This wasn’t like the stoval game. We didn’t give the game away…we couldn’t stop the falcons when we had a six point lead. That’s it. We played well but got beat by a better team.

    Free had an iffy day. We left a good 21 points and a no brainer punt on the field. Atl left some on the field but we left more. Great game that we should’ve won. Should’ve could’ve would’ve right. Gooo Bucs!!!

    I thought freeman played well. He missed the one throw to Williams but other than that, he did well. 21 points left on the field? I disagree.
