Adrian Clayborn’s Hit IllegalSeptember 15th, 2013
Joe knows Bucs fans went wild over the personal foul called on Adrian Clayborn’s hit and sack on Drew Brees. The zebras believed Clayborn went for Brees’ head and the flag came out.
Bucs fans erupted both on Twitter and in the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway. After the hour-long lightning delay where lubricated fans got more of a chance to fuel up, Joe was honeslty thinking there would be a disturbance of some sort the crowd grew so unruly.
It was like a power play at the Ice Palace when a penalty is called against the Lightning and the crowd boos throughout the whole penality. That’s what it was like at the Bucs game following that call.
However, former director of NFL officials and FOX NFL analyst Mike Pereira saw a far different result than what many Bucs fans saw.
@MikePereira: Correct call on the hit on Brees – though it’s very close. Lynch is right — err on the side of safety when you hit the QB high.
Bingo! It’s not how you blast a guy, it is where you blast a guy. Bucs coach Greg Schiano and his staff are going to have to teach their defenders to hit lower. Dashon Goldson, among others, has vowed to continue to be physical, and that’s good. Just drill their arses in the ribs, man.
