TD Catches All Around

August 2nd, 2010 photo by Kyra Hallett

Like any football fan with a pulse, Joe enjoys watching receivers go one-on-one with cornerbacks in drills.

But let’s get real; without a pass rush and the receiver getting a chance to make multiple moves, it’s not exactly a fair fight.

So Joe wasn’t ooohing and ahhhing when Arrelious Benn made Ronde Barber look bad for a touchdown. Mike Williams and Michael Clayton also had TDs in that specific drill. But Joe’s blood was pumping when Barber made a great break on the next pass to Benn for a sweet one-hand interception.

It’s practice.

Not that training camp isn’t a godsend, but Joe’s already itching for some real football. The preseason opener against Miami on Aug. 14 can’t come soon enough.

    Preseason isn’t REAL football.

    I think I know how you feel, I get suckered into every year (this year included). First I can’t wait for training camp, then a couple days go by, and I realize I have to wait 2 weeks to watch a game, and I can’t wait to see them line-up on the field. Then the first 5 minutes of the first preseason game is played, and I realize I must wait 4 more weeks to watch games that count, and I can’t wait for that.

    I fall for it EVERY YEAR!!! I LOVE FOOTBALL!!!!

    Hey Joe, help a loyal reader out! Dying for some Myron Lewis news! Anything happening with him or E J Biggers?

    @T in O-Town……. you are 100% right.

    That’s why cutting back from 4 to 2 pre-season games is a masterful idea.

    And an 18 game season? I’m in!

    I watched a pre-season game I think it was on The NFL network. They had talking heads who talked about football most of the game and only showed a fraction of the plays. Someone should have smacked the producer in the head.

    Hey Joe, instead of calling Clayton the blocking icon what about a true year round name like Mr August? So every September the Bucs put Mr August on the shelf till’ next year. A true practice player.

    Benn looks like a linebacker to me. Nice.
