“Check With The Ref”September 16th, 2013
Leave it to former Bucs tight end and 15-year NFL veteran Dave Moore to add superior Xs and Os insight into the messy, impotent Bucs offense.
Speaking this morning on the Ron and Ian show on WDAE-AM 620, Moore voiced his frustration at the Bucs’ multiple pre-snap formation penalties. Moore said preventing those screw-ups are as simple as asking a referee or official on the field whether you’re lined up correctly. “Check with the ref,” Moore implored.
Simply stated, Moore said all Demar Dotson, Mike Williams and others had to do was call out to a nearby zebra and ask if they were lined up legally. Players routinely do this, Moore said, and NFL officials always oblige.
Joe heard this and further wondered why the Bucs look undisciplined and undercoached.
