“Put On The Superman Cape”

November 14th, 2010

Joe loves listening to legendary Bucs play-by-play man Gene Deckerhoff whether Joe’s at the game, on the couch, the next day — anytime.

Among his many talents, Deckerhoff pulls off being a total homer announcer with incredible style and grace.

Well, Deckerhoff got the blood pressure up when LeGarrette Blount ripped apart the Panthers during the Bucs’ third posession of the game.

Blount for 12. Blount for 24. Blount for 3. Blount for 17. Bount for 17 again for the acrobatic touchdown pictured above.

“Roar Buccaneers fans, roar. No. 27’s delivering the mail. …Put on the Superman cape!” Deckerhoff screamed.

Of course, Blount found his kryptonite with a critical fumble two possessions later, and the Panthers clearly game-planned pretty well to stuff him in the second half.

But the kid is a load, and Joe is incredibly impressed considering he’s still new to the offense and went undrafted.

Joe found himself fantasizing during the game about Rachel Watson the Bucs drafting a big time running back next year to pair with Blount.

    We need a fast, change of pace back. Huggins has proven he cant stay healthy enough to last more than a few snaps so i think the draft is where we’ll get one.

    Sign who we need to sign and worry bout getting the defense up to par in the draft.

    I was watching the Michigan/Purdue game yesterday.. and if Ryan Kerrigan is available for us to get (even if we have to move up), that guy is a beast. Would be the perfect DE to get.

    R U Serious about drafting a RB?

    With all the problems on the defense if the Bucs use a draft pick on anyone higher than round 4 it would be a waste.

    I don’t think they need to draft a “big time” RB to pair with him. He is a work horse. They need a 3rd down burner to spot him about 10 carries a game while he gets 20. They might have that in Huggins already, we are not sure because of injuries.
    They need a DE (or two) in the first 3 rounds.
    They also NEED a MLB with an attitude and run stuffing capability.
    They also NEED another safety.

    Those would be my top 3 picks.

    ROunds 4-6 would be a RB and two O-Lineman
