“He Is Not Even Close To Being Healthy”August 26th, 2013
Former Bucs guard Ian Beckles (1990-1996) was horrified by the Bucs’ offensive line play against the Dolphins on Saturday. Horrified!
Nearly every member of the line caught Beckles’ wrath this morning on the Ron and Ian show on WDAE-AM 620. (full audio below) Even returning Bucs stud guard Davin Joseph did not impress Beckles. A huge fan of Joseph, Beckles explained that he’s certain Joseph isn’t ready to play.
“He is not even close to being healthy. I played that same position and I watched him labor and really try to stay away from piles, so I don’t think he’s really confident with that knee,” Beckles said of Joseph.
The Bucs did some great things with their run blocking on Saturday, but certainly the pass blocking was atrocious. Joe’s starting to wonder whether Donald Penn’s significantly lighter frame is affecting his play.
