“That’s You”September 30th, 2013
Every week, the Bucs’ No. 3 wide receiver looks like an amateur. He had another drop yesterday and doesn’t seem to know where the chains are.
It’s not just Joe who bangs his head against the wall at the thought of Kevin Ogletree.
This morning, former Bucs guard Ian Beckles, co-host of Ron and Ian on WDAE-AM 620, took a break from insisting Greg Schiano won’t last the season to express disgust of Ogletree’s awareness.
“How many times does this guy run a route a yard short?” That’s not coaching. That’s you,” Beckles said.
Beckles explained that every receiver is coached to be aware of the first-down markers so it’s just Ogletree not being a smart football player.
Joe’s also not a big fan of how Ogletree doesn’t have much fight in him for a first down when he does catch a ball in front of the sticks. There’s no dive, no reach, little fight in the legs.
Joe thinks of the great efforts Preston Parker turned in on third down during the dreadful 2011 season, and that looks like Hall of Fame game film compared to Ogletree. The regression is everywhere on the Bucs offense.
