Bucs Coaches Don’t Like Their Receivers

If the season was to start today, Maurice Stovall would be the Bucs No. 3 receiver.

It seems Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune has confirmed what Joe suspected when Raheem the Dream began to talk like a high school student in heat over NRA spokesman Plexiglass Burress.

Joe figured there was something wrong with the Bucs receivers, otherwise Raheem the Dream wouldn’t get all wet over the punk Burress, or even float hints he was interested in washed up Marvin Harrison.

Richardson spoke with Bucs receivers coach Richard Mann and Mann pulled no punches.

Bucs receivers coach Richard Mann said Maurice Stovall and Brian Clark are the leading candidates for more playing time when he was asked on Tuesday.

“Right now BC [Clark] is looking OK. Again, I haven’t seen BC play in a lot of games, but I think a lot of that is because he had to wait his turn. … Now BC’s time has come. Now it’s time to step up and grab one of those spots and right now I think he’s on schedule.”

Mann said receiver Dexter Jackson has shown signs of progress, but still needs to evolve.

“He has a long way to go, but he’s gotten better at being a receiver,” Mann said. “The return stuff, I don’t know anything about that, but he’s gotten better as a receiver.

This still doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to Joe. If the Bucs are happy with Bryant and Clayton, both of which got hefty pay raises since Raheem the Dream was hired, then why fret about the position so openly?

Or is Mann suggesting that he can’t find a way to get both Bryant and Clayton on the field at the same time? Where have we heard that nonsense before?
