No Kudos For You, Piscitelli

December 9th, 2009

Remember that 66-yard bomb to Steve Smith on Sunday?

Smith beat Elbert Mack late in the game to help the Panthers seal the game.

It looked like Smith simply beat Mack in one-on-one coverage. Bucs beat writer Stephen Holder, of the St. Pete Times, even reported it was one-on-one coverage. But it wasn’t.

Raheem The Dream himself chuckled on Monday when Buccaneers Radio Network host T.J. Rives suggested Sabby Piscitelli made a great play to tackle Smith and save a touchdown.

Per Raheem The Dream, Piscitelli was supposed to be in double coverage on Smith and should have been there in the first place. “You know we had the double of Steve [Smith], you know so Sabby kind of should have been over there a little bit.” Morris said while chuckling.

Joe continues to be amazed how inconsistent Piscitelli is. This is his first healthy season as a starter, and he just isn’t improving.

    Piscitelli is a slightly average player. He misses a lot of tackles and is late helping over the top often. I hope we find someone to replace him soon. He is someone who would better serve us as a full time special teams player or an empty roster spot.

    He’s a free lancer…all the athletic ability and lacks discipline. Play within the system Sabby. Put Lynch back there and move Sabby to CB.

    No Suh, must draft Berry just for replacing Sabby.

    Round 1: SUH
    Round 2 pick 1: DB (probably safety)
    Round 2 pick 2: WR
    Round 3: LB or DE
    Round 4: OT

    No way they pick berry in round one when SUH is there. SUH makes the entire line and all the DBs and LBs better. I understand how valuable Troy P in Pitt is or Ed reed in Baltimore is and Lynch was here, but none of them mean anything if you don’t have a line.

    Both sides of the ball ALWAYS must be built from the inside out and the weakest link on defense right now is the D-Line. Offense it is experience and WR.
