Spurlock Shining; Hope Lost For Clayton

August 21st, 2010

A simple out route and some great body control sent Micheal Spurlock to the end zone with a 53-yard touchdown to the give the Bucs a 10-7 lead against the Chiefs, who still had their A-team in the game.

Spurlock had two more catches, one late in the game off a great adjustment to a Rudy Carpenter pass over the middle.

Joe just sees Spurlock as a hard-working playmaker whose return ability truly makes him extraordinarily valuable, especially when the Bucs’ best returner has a questionable melon and a crabby hammy.

How can the Bucs afford to toss this guy aside?

With Mike Williams looking like a natural stud, Arrelious Benn sure to make the roster, plus Sammie Stroughter and Maurice Stovall, Joe wonders whether veteran Reggie Brown and Spurlock will be Nos. 5 and 6. It makes too much sense.

Clayton was out there tonight running on special teams with the second and third-teamers, and trying his best for a team that clearly looks quite happy to send him to put a Team Glazer check in the bank one last time.

    So Joe, what was the “official” attendance announced by the Bucs, and what is your best guess to the actual attendance tonight? Also, doesn’t seem like Ward lived up to his promise earlier in the week eh? Like I said earlier this week, the guy has no heart and is worthless–he got his money and quit!

    What a great throw from Johnson! And what a great route run and catch by Spurlock! Hopefully, this will spell the end for Michael in Tampa Bay.
    If Spurlock does this on a consistent basis;

    Say, bye-bye Clayton!

    I’d guess there was 25 to 30,000 there. Clayton dropped his first pass, although it would have been a tough catch to make, but it hit his hand so he had to drop it.

    Ward totally sucked and Kareem is better. Ward can’t find the hole. It may be easy to spot where he should run up in the stands, but he runs scared and heads in to his blockers’ butts. I think he goes with Clayton.
