Geno Hayes Likes The “Concoction” On Defense

May 29th, 2010

If Bucs video guru Scott Smith keeps up the quality interviews on, he’s sure to be horsecollared by BSPN in a matter of days.

Smith’s ultra laid back style just works very well in the cozy chat sessions the team is doing with various players. In the latest sit-down, lightning fast Geno Hayes strolled into the spotlight.

Among the many highlights, Smith confonts Hayes with the interesting fact that three of the Bucs’ 2010 draft picks are older than Hayes, who enters his third season and turns 23 in August. Viewers also get to watch Hayes get hazed during a previous season; The ritual had him taped to the goal post and harmlessly abused by Matt McCoy and Adam Heyward.

Hayes also gave his take on Raheem The Dream and the post Jim Bates defense.

“Raheem’s a great chess player. You know, he understands the game,” Hayes said. “He’s taken what he’s learned from guys like Jim Bates and Monte Kiffin and he’s making his own little, you know, concoction with it. So it’s coming out good. And when he took over last year, it was good because everybody knew what to do. …Read and react. Read and react. It’s quick. You know, you get one step, one read, and you’re gone. He puts you in the right position to make plays. It’s up to you to make the play.”

Hayes, along with Aqib Talib and Tanard Jackson, is one of the guys the Bucs surely are counting on to up his game to the next level and maximize his immense talent.

While the young trio of defensive tackles must mature quickly, Joe believes Hayes, Talib and Jackson equally need to improve and take a step closer to their first Pro Bowl-caliber season for the Bucs to show significant improvement.

    So basically, if the players are out of position IT’S RAHEEM’S FAULT! LOL, I knew it.

    No wonder why we continued to get torched on rushing plays… over pursuing, being out of position… Raheem gets the cred… thanks Geno.

    I like this kid alot. I hope he has learned to surround himself with better people, and I’d really like to see him put on 10lbs of muscle…but I like him.

    It would be pretty cool to carry on the tradition Mr. Brooks started with FSU linebackers. I could see Hayes and Watson locking down the OLB spots for years to come.

    If Hayes, Talib, and Jackson all become pro-bowlers, or pro bowl caliber, would that make Allen a little less of a dumb ass in the drafting department?

    Joe here,

    Absolutely, Eric.

  7. Louie Says:

    Didn’t we hear the same things last year about Bates defense?

    I’m not falling for that crap again until I see it succeed on the field. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Wow, I would be really careful with Hayes. Had several missed tackles last year. He needs some time to become a solid linebacker first. Last year, he was just an inconsistent one that made splash plays once in a while.
