Keep The Streak Alive

October 30th, 2010

Joe’s not alluding to the Bucs’ four-game road winning streak in the headline above.

No, Joe’s talking about an ugly Arizona Cardinals stat that Joe just can’t get out of his head.

Here it is detailed by Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic in a Bucs-Cards preview:

Cardinals key stat

25 – That’s how many possessions the Cardinals have had with Max Hall at quarterback. They have one touchdown in that time, a 2-yard fumble return by tackle Levi Brown. The Cardinals are ranked last in the NFL in four offensive categories and are tied for 30th in turnover ratio (minus 7). There are many other ways to tell how bad the offense has been but you get the idea. 


Joe is flabbergasted how pathetic the Cardinals’ offense has been with undrafted rookie Hall under center. That’s 25 possessions and they only punched in one score by a tackle picking up a fumble. Yet he’s still the Arizona starting quarterback.

The Bucs’ defense might expect a gift QB like this on Christmas, not Halloween.

Joe has to believe Raheem Morris is smart enough to find a way to stop the run Sunday, especially with a lame threat at quarterback and Beanie Wells, not Stephen Jackson, starting against him.

If the Cardinals run the ball down Bucs’ throat in the first half, Joe’s literally going to launch into a profanity-laced tirade rivaled only by those of the Jim Bates era.

The Bucs should be able to hold Arizona to 14 points or less and generate some turnovers.

    The cardinals have a mediocre defense that sometimes doesn’t show up at all. And that fluke, fumble your way to a TD was the only offensive TD of the games in which they beat the Saints. It was really the luckiest win I have ever seen. And the reason why Max Hall is still the quarterback is because Derek Anderson is really that bad. I really would be shocked if Anderson is still hanging around the league by next year. He is a total meltdown artist. Oh btw, the have managed to give up 41 points in two separate losses to the Chargers and Falcons.

    Agreed, put nine in the box if you have to, haha. Make Hall throw it and stuff that run. Steve White was talking about moving Roy miller over to undertackle and putting Ryan Sims in at NT when McCoy comes out. I think that would be a good run stuffing combo right there. Cant wait for Sunday!! Go Bucs!!

    I expect at least 1 pick 6 tomorrow and “everybody” in the box to stop the run.

  5. Buc You Says:

    It will be hilarious if the Bucs cant stop the run tomorrow. Downright hilarious.

    Hey, Buc yourself, it’ll be hilarious when you are the first double award winner ever on “JoeBucFan”! Winning both “Racist” and “Douche” of the year! Yer mom should be proud! Lol

    Not really. They are ranked 27th overall, and they are 32nd against the pass and 29th against the run. Their D is actually worse than ours.
