Leftwich Benched! Josh Johnson To Start

September 28th, 2009


Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune reports that Raheem the Dream has benched Bryon Leftwich and Josh Johnson will make his first NFL start at Washington Sunday.

Joe wonders what (who?) changed Raheem the Dream’s mind? He said emphatically yesterday that if changes were to be made, it would not start with benching Leftwich.

Could it be Raheem the Dream was told who to start Sunday? Given how strongly he supported Leftwich after yesterday’s horrible loss, Joe believes it to be a fair question

    Hey about time. Raheem is coaching by consensus now! Joe please confirm this as I need to make sure that JJ’s insurance policy is paid in full.

    Also according to that link:

    “Morris suggested other lineup changes may be coming, as well. Though he didn’t specify positions, he said there’s a good chance some players will give up snaps to others in the coming weeks.”

    Could this be the end of Gaines Adams as well? Don’t worry Gaines I’ll call Kenyatta Walker and see if the 2 of you can be roomies in the Bucs Bust-of-Fame Dorm

    Well at least that is a sign that the Bucs are trying to make an effort to better themselves.

    If JJ is not up to par after a few games put in Freeman and give him a chance to prove himself. At least by the off-season they will know who may be worth keeping and who needs to be removed!
    The stats from that last game was imbarassing for lack of a better, stronger more harsh word.

    Glazer boys are pulling those strings pretty hard. Too many empty seats. Maybe JJ can build some excitement and keep fans from jumping ship.

    Joel Glazer takes the snap, hands off to brian Glazer and he’s hit behind the line. Look there’s Malcom putting on the helmet………
