Where The Safety Started

October 23rd, 2011

Joe’s reaching for something to soothe him after this horrible “home” loss to the Bears in England. And since there’s no more beer in the fridge and Rachel Watson didn’t ring the doorbell, Joe’s going with the photo above to bring him a fleeting moment of happiness.

The Bucs’ first-half safety was a thing of beauty to put them on the scoreboard and grab some confidence. Ronde Barber got the final credit, but it all started with the mountain in the middle, Frank Okam, as this picture shows. Roy Miller started today alonside Brian Price, but it seemed that Okam was on the field when the Bucs defense was at its best — standing tall on the Bears’ final six possessions.

    Good username bad suggestion. Morris is the right coach. He motivates younger guys and keeps the locker room emotionally steady. After a win, he says it’s another step, after a loss, he says to move on. We’ve already bounced back from losses twice. We can do it again. BIG game in NO in 2 weeks. We’ve had their number last 2 years in their house an we beat ’em thi year with injured players. Get T-Jax in shape, Blount and GMC back and we’ve got a great game.

    Season’s not over by a long shot!

    GO BUCS!!!

    Okam is a keeper. And to all the so called fans who want rahs head, just go away please. What do you expect him to do without a running back and center? There was no reason to get a freeagent when we had two good backs. There was no crystal ball tO know we would need one and with the exception of the frisco game this team has done very well considering the youth, injuries and schedule. If we had a washed up coach we would have been done when the season started. I love this team and what it’s about and I love the growth we’ve seen in three years. Sorry for the grammar and all I’m using a retarded apple product. Go Bucs!!!

    Why does Roy Miller play as much as he does? He is the 4th best tackle on this team – maybe. He is so slow off the ball it doesn’t matter how strong he is. I realize he was drafted for Bates’ scheme but he is definitely upgradable.

    Ive been behind rah through thick and thin, and i will continue to support him as long as he is HC of the bucs. But i am tired of the lack of execution and discipline which falls on the coaching staff. The talent is obviously there but i just feel raheem coddles players to much and theres not enough structure. I believe a more experience head coach can take this team to the next level. JMO GO BUCS!!!

    Mount Okam-
    I am loving how the DL is shaping up. If the 2 deep of the DL can get and stay healthy. Is there much drop off when there is a rotation of McCoy, Price, Miller, and Okam?
    I hated this loss. However the sky is not falling. Chicago isn’t exactly a bottom of the barrel team. This was not another 48-3 type thing. It wasn’t pretty but there was a chance at the end of the game and it just didn’t work out.

    Hey, I’m glad as anyone we got the Safety. It’s a fun play to watch and a rare occurrence in the NFL… BUT, coming off an INT by T-Jax with a nice return and being in scoring position to giving up an INT the very next play and “settling” for a Safety is a far cry from what would have made me happy. They should have pushed that in for a score. A TD there and the final score is different. The win/loss columns look different. Uh-uh, not gonna be happy about that Safety, should have been a TD.

    Big plays from Okam. Bad plays from LB.
