“The King Of Hustle” Crushes With Two Sacks

September 19th, 2010

Joe’s fired up for defensive end Tim Crowder, who Joe was lobbying hard for in the preseason.

Turning in his typical high-motor performance today, Crowder grabbed two sacks, one which led to the key Matt Moore fumble and turnover in the fourth quarter. On that play, Crowder was rushing off left end and Kyle Moore, who recovered the fumble, had moved to rush inside.

Crowder also had the final tackle on the Bucs’ late goal line stand.

During one of his daily news conferences last week, Raheem Morris called Crowder “The King of Hustle.”

A “Jim Bates guy,” the Bucs snatched up Crowder last September after he was cut by the Broncos, where he had a strong rookie season in 2007 under Bates.

Again, Morris plays the right card keeping Michael Bennett inactive.

    Bucs made that look very easy. This team may be better than even I hoped!!! GO BUCS!!!!

    Crowder was brilliant ! He may have ended Matt Moore’s pro career with his sack of him.
    Fox is under a LOT of pressure from the Panther Fans to win, or else! He was looking for an excuse to put Claussen in, and now he has. He will stay with Claussen all year, to protect his job. Then he can blame it on a rookie QB. Poor Matt Moore, he CAN be a decent QB. I watched him beat us in Tampa, pick us apart. But that was then, Tampa is a VASTLY improved team, 2 and OH baby! If we upset the Squealers next week, look out. Raheem did a GREAT job coaching this game. Watching game film on Crowder is gonna frustrate Pittsburgh, who do you double ? Our D Line is coming into it’s own. Pittsburgh will really test us, but remember, we just beat Panthers worse then Giants did!

    I’ve liked Crowder over Moore since the get go. I hope he gets the start next week against the Steelers.

    The Quincy Black sack was Perfect. I bet Steve White will have his say about that one. AWESOME!!

    Quincey Black damn near killed Moore on that sack. Wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the reason Moore was pulled was because he suffered his second concussion in two weeks.

    I liked Crowder down the stretch last year, and was a bit miffed when they handed the job to Kyle Moore. Now, Moore has done fine so I understand that he is worth being in the lineup. And, having Moore/Crowder/White in rotation means they don’t know if Crowder is on the left or right, if Moore is outside or inside, is White a down lineman or standing up, and is Black coming or not? Gotta love the versatility they’re showing. Crowder is a great talent to have on the team when combined with the other 5 or 6 guys.
