    63 pressures in 4 games….. Good thing Josh is big because he will be taking plenty of hits.

    Derek- Your referencing PRO FOOTBALL FOCUS?????!!! Haven’t you heard that Thomas 2.2 has completely discredited PFF since they have the gall to actually rate Gerald McCoy as a good player? Per Thomas PFF’s stats are all useless. Just thought you’d like to know.

    Great Review…I think your right, I don’t think San Fran has played an offense line and running back as physical as what we bring.

    I will be there in person cheering on our squad!!!!

    Great game breakdown as usual Derek. These guys play hard, and it will not be easy for Tampa to beat them, at home. I also heard the radio interview of Josh Freeman when he said this is the best front 7 Tampa will face all year. He may be right, they are 3 and 1 so far.
    Still, I see Tampa winning a close game.

    The one damn good preview as always Derek. I heard you say McCoy could have a great game, how good is the interior of 49ers’ O-line in pass protection?

    yeah he also said davin joseph is not a good player …… tampa bay fans dont support profootballfocus

    Thanks guys.

    @Tampa2Ali – To boycott a source of data because their reports do not favor a player seems silly.

    I was surprised by their rating on Davin (as I am a big Davin fan) and am working on having one of their lead analysts on the show to discuss.

    @Jonny – Their whole line is suspect but again, the Right Side is weakest. Since Bennett took advantage last week and put up that film, my suspicion is that they will be sliding protection to avoid that and leave even more room for GMC.

    Derek- Is there any real surprise they rate Joseph and Trueblood so poorly? Seriously when you look at how unstoppable Blount is once he is past the line of scrimmage, shouldn’t he be going for 100+ yards in just about every single game if the vaunted “maulers” on the right side of our line were actually opening up holes consistently. Blount object gets his yards in spite of the crap run blocking this line does not because of it. The are good o-lines in this league behind which Blount would probably be threatening to lead the league in rushing yardage. The Bucs line is clearly not one of them.

    I do think Davin has pass blocked fairly well this year as opposing d-tackles haven’t really gotten any pressure.

  9. Derek 'OldSchool' Fournier Says:

    @Beckles – From what I can see, we employ drastically different approaches in blocking first to second half. I have a buddy who is a line coach who I will interview next week to get the difference clear as I try not to speak out of my arse often. I honestly think that Joseph is playing pretty good football and Trueblood may be having his best year as a Buc. That being said, Trueblood is what he is.
