Signals Point To Cody Grimm Being Iced OutMay 11th, 2012
The way new Bucs coach Greg Schiano has put a clamp down on information about what his defense will entail this fall, it’s easier for Joe to acquire a cell phone number for Rachel Watson.
Earlier this week on an NFL.com podcast, Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik let some information slip when he all but stated Ronde Barber will be starting the season at safety.
Without trying to ascribe a motive, surely Schiano plans to start No. 7 overall draft pick Mark Barron as well.
This leaves Cody Grimm out in the cold.
Could it be that the Bucs have doubts about Grimm’s ability to bounce back from his second season-ending leg injury in as many years? Joe’s of the mind the Bucs should be.
Look, Joe has nothing at all against Grimm, a really good guy with good genes. He’s what everyone likes in a football player: gritty, fundamentally sound and not afraid to stick his nose in a pile. But to have a defensive back suffer two serious leg injuries; two years ago breaking an ankle and last year tearing the meniscus and MCL in his right knee.
Joe finds it strange that so many Bucs fans have piled on Gerald McCoy for not being able to stay on the field. Like Grimm, GMC himself has suffered two season-ending injuries in his first two seasons yet these same fans are willing to give Grimm a pass.
