Get Ready For The Secondary Spin

October 11th, 2009

Buccaneers Eagles FootballEnough already.

Somebody needs to come out and say the Bucs’ secondary stinks. Let Joe be the first. Now Joe’s talking about the unit as a whole.

The excuses seemed to finally be all gone against Philadelphia. Tanard Jackson was back. Aqib Talib and Ronde Barber were coming off strong games, and Sabby Piscatelli had settled down after a horrific start to the season. The Bucs’ defense was even playing better as a whole.

But all that didn’t mean crap. The Eagles immediately went after Elbert Mack for a 51-yard touchdown to Jeremy Maclin, and came back again to Maclin who caught Will Allen with his pants down for a 40-yard TD. And Joe can’t remember any big hits by the secondary today.

Every week it’s a big play or two, or three.

Joe’s going to cover his ears when Raheem The Dream and Jim Bates talk about the secondary this week. There’s really not much to say, other than these guys aren’t very good right now.

    Joe, I read some comments on buc-em about players walking away from raheem while he was still talking to them ,did you see anything like that and what if anything do you make of it

    He just said on his radio interview, “We can’t let people get behind us.” Ok, onto 0-6.

    I know I saw players walk away from Bisaccia (sp?). They should be walkin away from Jim Bates, players or not they need to do something about the secondary even if it means altering his system cause they obviously are struggling to limit big pass plays, they’ve killed us.

    To be fair. We could have a Collection of probowlers back there and they would suck monkey nuts. If we get to the QB in 5 seconds it’s a miracle and mist of the time we’re asking the secodary to cover for 5-10 seconds. Impossible in the NFL.

    That said, our secondary sucks monkey nuts.
