I love how reporters always think they are smarter than the coach’s. If the coach’s ran their teams according to what the reporters suggest, the first time it totally crapped the bed the reporters would be all over the coach for being influenced by outside sources and they’re not smart enough to run their own team. …sometimes it’s the media who can be your biggest adversary.
Seahawks released CB Antoine Winfield. We should claim him. He would be a perfect fit for the slot. He is above average against the run and has enough speed and agility to defend short passing routes. Atn his age he can no longer defend one on one on the outside but perfect for the slot or maybe convert to safety.
Too old? lol Barber played last year at a high level at 37. Winfield was ranked second best in tackles behind Sherman last year. Considering the lack of depth, and the fact that he could play the slot or convert to safety on a one year stop gap deal wouldn’t be a bad ideal. Just his ability to read offenses gives him credibility. Imagine Winfield on the field at the same time as Revis, Barron, Goldson, and Banks.
Was just rewatching some of our games from this preseason. Not a doomsday kinda guy because of meaningless preseason performance but I couldn’t help but notice how often we’re dropping very catchable balls this year. Joe, in your attractions with players, have you got any indications that it’s due to a drop off in coaching from our WR coach last year?
@Bonzai, its hard to do right now….all I know is we had better come out firing on ALL cylinders in taking this Jets game serious. If we dont, Im going to be even more sad. If we lose that game, I’ll be driving to Tampa to talk Raphael from jumping off of the skyway!
RBellBuc …some dude at the game in my section asked me this on Thursday. He turns around and says. So ah what do you think? I said think about what this game? He says yah that and the season. It took me about 20 seconds or so. I shrugged and said ya know I really don’t know. Of course my mind at the time was soaked down in beer and the crappy preseason game that I was witnessing. Then I just told him if you would’ve asked me 3 weeks ago I would have confidently said 11-5 division champs and now all I got for ya is I don’t know. Maybe it’s all the preseason games and the lack of anyone trying at all out there on the field that made me say it. So now I’m going into the season thinking a cautious 10-6 or 11-5. It could be homerism. Again I don’t know. The Jets game should give me a better idea though, even though it is the Jets.
@1987,Like I said,Josh Johnson was never given enough of a chance to prove himself and you want to throw up some stats from a handful of games he was thrown into,how is that any kind of counterpoint,duh,you need to polish up your comprehension skills and then come back and visit us.Why don’t you throw up some stats from the 5 year love affair you’ve had with michael jackson wannabe.
In all reality, you could say the Bucs are historically consistent, and this season should be no different than any other seasons for us fans. Every year I feel the same way as I do right now. I’m never sure what to expect at this time of year. I’ve been a Buc fan for a very long time and the franchise has been more of a roller coaster than Freeman ever has in his short career. We have been consistently bad for so long that even a team full of eight probowlers was countered by a poor preseason. Where I was excited about our chances four weeks ago I am now not so sure where we stand now. We have to be really good to just compete in our own division or be so so and end up at the bottom. I can’t definitively sit here and say I know for sure. I hope people don’t think that makes me less than a fan.
“@1987,Like I said,Josh Johnson was never given enough of a chance to prove himself”
He’s been given plenty of chances to prove himself after being drafted in the 5th round. The Sacramento Mountain Lions gave him a chance. So hey he did have his shot there. Did he even become the starter for them?
@911bucs…that and the fact that is was the 4th game full of 3rd stringers. I was there and there was practically no season ticket holders in my section that were there in the 1st game. There was also a lot of people dressed in plain clothes, like they were just given the tickets from someone. I got up to take a piss in the 2nd quarter and there was tons of fans just hanging around chatting not even watching the game. Kind of like they just came to the game for something to do. I’d say about 60% of the people there were dressed in plain clothes.
RBellBuc….and people always forget the fact that Denver had a great D that year that kept the team in games so Tebow could look like the hero at the end of the game. Once again of course SOME people think the QB is the one person that makes the difference between winning and losing. That includes Buc fans who witnessed one of the greatest defensive teams in NFL history.
