Thursday Practice Notes & Observations

August 14th, 2014

Trainingcamp1stretch

The final public training camp practice of the season was this afternoon at One Buc Palace. Lightning delayed things for a bit, but Joe stuck it out and sweating and soaking it all in for your reading pleasure.

Here are your highlights and lowlights:

*Your first team right guard is Patrick Omameh. Left guard is Oneil Cousins.

*Floppy hat duty for Mike Jenkins. Limited work for Alterraun Verner.

*Charles Sims is out nursing a tweaked ankle. He’s got the walking boot on.

*Bucs are in “underwear football” mode. No pads today. Not with a game on Saturday night.

*Mike Glennon throws in between Mike James and Tommy Streeter. Ugly-looking miscommunication.

*Glennon has a pass tipped by the immortal Kip Edwards.

*Terrible Glennon overthrow to Mike James.

*Bucs are trying more screens than usual today. They’re not fooling the defense and they look a little clunky.

*Juggled but not caught near interception by Michael Johnson of Josh McCown. A dumpoff pass to Louis Murphy.

*Leonard Johnson rips away a short McCown pass from Skye Dawson. Incomplete. Nice play.

*Lots of work on running plays today. Always odd to watch when there’s no hitting. Jeff Demps gets to flash his speed. Center Evan Dietrich-Smith is always hustling.

*Fullback Jorvorskie Lane rolls for big gain over right tackle. #UnderwearFootball

*Tim Wright with a nice adjustment on a Mike Glennon pass in the air. Later Wright is busy with the first team.

*Seferian Jenkins gets deep behind the Bucs’ zone defense and McCown hits him 30 yards in stride. Great zip on the pass.

*Biggest crowd road of the day. McCown to Vincent Jackson. Pass is complete after Rashaan Melvin nicely broke it up, but not enough to stop Jackson from finding away to haul it in. Nice concentration. Lovie Smith is sure to moan again that his defense had its hands on a ball but didn’t force the takeaway. VJax does Deion pose last few yards.

*Doug Martin’s hands let him down. Tough catch, but he missed a chance to impress on a 15 yard pass.

*There’s ASJ again with a catch and run — and angry run.

*Deep go route, complete! McCown to V-Jax. 40 yards.

*INTERCEPTION! Johnthan Banks. Miscommunication between Mike Evans and McCown, who fired a strike to Banks. He’ll never get an easier pick.

*Yo, Tim Wright: You can’t run without the ball, son,

*Lightning warning siren sounds and ends practice.

Stick with Joe through the evening for so much more out of today’s practice.

  2. Joe's Liver Says:

    Why the f*ck is Oneil Cousins getting first team reps AGAIN? He is arguably one of the worst lineman in the entire NFL. Played extremely poorly last year in CLE and our first preseason game, this is the first thing thats fkn blowing my mind by the coaching staff,

  3. Bucdon Says:

  5. Mac Says:

    What happened to Chase Daniels starting… wow that didn’t last long.

    I’m shocked…

  6. Legarrettes Blunt Says:

    Joe what is your impressions of Glennon in year 2 training camp? I’m not a member of the Mike Glennon Mob I am just wondering how he looked, because from what I have read he has thrown a lot of interceptions and has had many miscommunications throughout camp.

  7. Mitch Says:

    Anyone see that Larry English, former 1st round pick from the chargers, was signed? Anyone know anything about him?

  8. Buccfan37 Says:

    Glennon sounds like he reverted to the anti MGM’s pleasure. Will the real Bucs please stand up? Good job Joe for sticking it through the unpleasant weather.

  9. SteveK Says:

    Mitch,

    He sucks.

  10. SteveK Says:

    Glennon is going to be a damn fine QB for our Bucs, in due time.

    Listening to the BigDog, funny as hell that he hates Glennon so much but he thinks Freeman should be back in the NFL.

    Glennon> Freeman.

  11. Jason Says:

    “Charles Smith in a walking boot”… that supposed to be Charles Simms?

    Joe what is your impressions of Glennon in year 2 training camp?

    Better.

  14. ATLBucsFan Says:

    Thanks Joe for the camp updates. A joy to read.

  15. SteveK Says:

    @Joe,

    Do you think our opening day, starting, OGs are currently on the roster?

  16. Bill Byrne Says:

    Nice job Joe for all your work. I am not worried about our offensive line until after the third pre-season game. By then, we will know who’s in or out.

    Thanks Again Joe.

    —————-

    You’re shocked that the Kansas City Chiefs backup QB isn’t starting for the Bucs? I’m shocked you don’t know the guys’ name is Jace Daniels.

    I’m surprised he didn’t do better. He usually has his best days when he can’t be tackled.

  19. Jaycee Says:

    Me thinks Joe doesn’t read the comments. That’ just Jaycee’s opinion.

  20. JonBuc Says:

    Larry English was picked one spot ahead of Josh Freeman in the 2009 draft. He’s a DE/LB “tweener” that flamed out in San Diego. Fringe player at best is my guess…2009 1st rounders are for the most part duds just 5 years later…

  21. DB55 Says:

    @bonzai – points

  22. VancouverBucsFan Says:

    Sounds like a rough day for Mr. Glennon…
    I’m excited to see the Lovie give Mr. Cousins ample opportunity. He may not yet have lived up to the pro bowl expectations many fans have placed upon him, but I’m optimistic that playing time and experience will help him grow. Have faith people. I think he’ll get better in due time. I’d love to see an upgrade yes I’m sure we all would but sometimes you just gotta roll with the punches. Instead of dogging people and focus on the negatives, focus on the positives. Hard work, focus and maybe GMC showing him all star opposisition may just make him better. Same with dietrich-smith beside him as well. Play the cards youre dealt, you just might win.

  23. Joe Says:

    Not unreasonable to think, no.
