Brief Thoughts On Monday PracticeAugust 8th, 2011
Joe doesn’t usually post after 11 p.m., but what the hell? It’s training camp and as Ahmad Black told Joe tonight, it’s game week.
Just a few brief thoughts on practice:
* Josh Johnson was pretty damned accurate. Later, Joe has a video from “Old School” who ripped Johnson for checking down way too much. Joe wasn’t looking for that. The plays Joe watched, Johnson was getting the ball right to where a receiver wants it.
* Joe noticed the following but read Shaun King Twitter this as well: Earnest Graham was “explosive.” King was right. Joe can’t remember the time Graham was running like this in practice much less a game. He really stood out.
* Kregg Lumpkin is getting a boatload of carries and is doing a decent job. Sadly, Joe kept mistaking him for Allen Bradford because Lumpkin had his jersey rolled up and Joe could only make out an “8.”
* Josh Freeman was sick today. Just sick. He was rifling balls through the defense, just carving up the defense at will. Not only was Freeman accurate, lethally so, he was putting the ball where defenders had no prayer of making a play. Joe has never seen a Bucs quarterback slice through a defense like Freeman did today.
It nearly took Joe’s breath away, but we all know only Rachel Watson could render Joe speechless.
