Senseless Mistakes “Baffling” To John LynchSeptember 16th, 2013
Legions of Bucs fans heard the disbelief in TV analyst and Bucs icon John Lynch’s voice yesterday. “Baffling that this happens at this level,” Lynch said of the Bucs’ repeated pre-snap penalties for the second consecutive game.
Lynch uttered that after Demar Dotson’s failed to
toes on the line up on properly at the line of scrimmage. Dotson’s procedure penalty negated a 73-yard touchdown to Vincent Jackson.
For Joe, the Bucs getting another delay of game call to start a drive was tops among the “baffling” lack of discipline on display in the loss to the Saints.
The teamwide sloppiness is on the coaching. Greg Schiano said so himself. Joe can only suspect that players are not being drilled enough in certain areas and there is no fear of accountability for the screw-ups.
If stupidity and/or a lack of awareness are the only causes, then that’s a tough thing to fix at this point in the season — and still beat top opponents like the ones on the Bucs’ schedule.
Good luck fixing everything, Coach.
