Bob Bostad Has Work To DoAugust 24th, 2013
OK, so Joe knows the Dolphins have one of the better four-man defensive front in the NFL. They should have pressured Bucs franchise quarterback Josh Freeman Saturday night in South Florida.
But that doesn’t mean the Bucs needed to pretend they were
Jeremy Trueblood turnstiles.
The Bucs’ offensive line, thought to be a strength, was miserable in pass protection. Donald Penn, in the best shape of his life, has given up three sacks in the last two glorified scrimmages preseason games. Gabe Carimi showed just why the Bears unloaded him on the Bucs on passing plays.
There was more, but Joe is too disturbed to list the gory details. Joe knows the Mike Glennon Mob was worked into a lather in the third quarter, but goodness gracious, Joe Montana would have had a bad game with all the drops and ole’ pass blocking.
With Carl Nicks out indefinitely because of his MRSA (he is doing well, but probably needs some time to get back in football shape), it sure seems the Bucs offensive line, thought to be an asset, needs some coaching up.
