Stroughter Offers Bold Comments

October 25th, 2009

The Bucs most consistent, dependable wide receiver, rookie Sammie Stroughter, offered some pointed yet accurate and welcome words on the Bucs radio network after the Bucs loss to New England.

“You can’t keep spotting teams points and playing catch-up,” Stoughter said. “We want to pound the ball. But when  you are starting off in the hole, it’s hard to do that.

“We are not getting the breaks. You have to keep fighting.”

Stroughter noted how Johnson was having a terrible time against Bill Belicheat’s defense, not that a quarterback in his fourth NFL start ever would (cough, cough) but stopped short of saying Freeman should be the starter.

“Johnson couldn’t get it going,” Stroughter said. “But he stayed calm. That was a bright spot.”

    Why won’t someone just admit it. This team is perhaps the weakest of the weak. IT has a rookie GM, a rookie HC it fired it’s OC 10days before the season, and cut all of its leaders…………………0-16 would be logical.

    Joe has consistently wrote over the past two weeks how horrid this team is.

    Joe doesn’t know when/if the Bucs can win a game this year.

    Joe would suspect they may have a shot after the bye week, only because they have a week off — the players SHOULD NOT be given a week off. Joe suspects part of the contract with the NFLPA allows the players to have a week off at the bye, no matter how shitty they are.

    If Freeman starts, how can anyone with a straight face say they expect the Bucs to beat the Packers?

    “Johnson couldn’t get it going,”

    Not this game nor any other he has started. It must be true that he is nothing more than a back up if in all his starts he can’t even find a way to move the chains enough to get at least more field goals if nothing else. If his era is over than Awesome, let’s see what else we have so that we give ourselves a chance to pull out a win before all our chances are wasted on playing players that are causing more harm than good. 3 int and the 1st one a pick 6. He threw as many TD passes to their team as he did his own!!! Mediocre QB if That!!!
