Da’Quan Bowers Counts His BlessingsAugust 29th, 2014
The Bucs, thus far today, have cut 12 players in their quest to get to the league-mandated 53-man roster by tomorrow at 4 p.m.. It looks like 10 more will meet the Grim Reaper in the coming hours.
As as the sun begins to set on the Gulf of Mexico, turning the western horizon brillant shades of red, orange and pink, one playe is giving his thanks to a higher authority for such beauty, and for his own good fortunes.
Tonight may be a restless night for Da’Quan Bowers for it could be his last as a Buccaneer. Bowers, many believe, is on the proverbial bubble, and he turned to Twitter in sort of a public sigh of relief this afternoon..
Tough day for a lot of good players, by the grace of God I haven’t experienced it. Prayers out to the men who are unemployed now

The only thing Joe believes possibly saves Bowers is one of Lovie Smith’s Holy Trinity of football: sacks. No, Bowers doesn’t have many. But Lovie has spoken about how he believes Bowers’ quickness used at a defensive tackle slot on sure passing downs could create a mismatch, and thus, the advantage for the Bucs to put a quarterback on his back.
Of course, Bowers has been hurt much of preseason, so Lovie hasn’t had much of a chance to put this theory into motion.
Bowers’ weeks on the sidelines have given others chances to usurp him on the roster, Lovie has said. We will know in the coming hours if that happened or not.
