Adrian Clayborn Speaks

November 13th, 2011

Bucs rookie defensive end Adrian Clayborn had a few things to say from a somber Bucs locker room after the game.

“We need to show for the whole 60 minutes and play like we want it, not just for a quarter or a half a quarter. I don’t want to throw anyone under the bus, we’re just not playing the way we need to play.

“Practice always goes well, that’s how it goes. I’ve never had a bad week of practice. Just have to bring it to the game. I thought we had a good game plan. I guess they had a better game plan.”

    I have to ask…what part of the 60 minutes were the Bucs playing in?

  2. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Saw the same issues with Dungy’s team in the early years…they’ll turn it around. Just maybe not by the end of this season.

    why dont you go choke some of guys taking plays off talib jackson black..

    @j lynch

    No man, Jackson’s done ok. Black and Talib have been horrible.

    Jackson and Barber are really the only good players we have on our D. Maybe Clayborn. That’s about it. Price too, but he’s real injury prone. Same with McCoy.

    I see many players unwilling to lay their bodies on the line. Ian talked about that this off-season and yes this team appears to be on the soft side except a few player or two (Clayborn or Joseph). Freeman routine throws are inaccurate, there is an obvious disconnect on offense. Back to square one.

    This team has lost 3 in a row and looked very bad doing it…..I can already tell they are going to be blasted in the media all week for quitting, lack of effort, and basically anything else a professional athlete should take very personally

    And they have the Packers coming up. It will be very interesting to see how this team responds. It will be very telling as to whether or not this team, Rah and the front office are on the right path or not. I’m not expecting them to come out and dominate the best team in the league, but seeing them flying to the ball, playing smart physical football would be very encouraging. I hope they finally start to play angry

  7. Architek Says:

    I agree. Talib and Black have been painfully bad at their angles and pursuit. I am watching the 49ers and Giants battle and these guys are physically going at it. One thing I noticed on edge rushing plays, the Giants are so fundamental because they are cutting down the lead blocker and forcing the play to the next defender. Thats picture perfect and makes the lead blocker hesistant to throw blocks and also prevent multiple defenders from being taken out of the play by one devastating block. I don’t see the Bucs taking challenges and banging. So discouraging because the coach can’t make them do that.

    Contrast that statement to what Geno tweeted after the game.

    No excuses, No Regrets!

    I tweeted him back I “regretted” staying until the end of the 3rd qtr. 🙂

    LOL @ Drew…thats a CLASSIC!

  11. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Nice dew! All I have been hearing is excuses and every second and dime spent on this team is regrettable.

  12. Bucnnole Says:

    Sean Jones is a joke. He’s going to be disappointed the U.F.L. went belly up because that were he deserves to be. He sucks.

  13. Baja Alabama Says:

    “I guess they had a better game plan.” No sh!t

  14. Oahubuc Says:

    Funny, the announcers didn’t think our practices looked very good at all. It was Rich Gannon, but still. Did anyone mention the possibility that they might be badly coached?

  15. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Our game plan was: “youngry”

  16. FIRE RAH! Says:

    @2.2 youngry is no longer a word for this team. Remember its yougly? GOOO YUCS!!!

  17. simeon Says:

    how bout the just show up to the game, maybe start with 10 minutes before we talk about playing 60 minutes.

  18. eric Says:

    This team doesnt resemble dungys in any way shape or form.

  19. gotbbucs Says:

    this isnt even a competitive team anymore.

  20. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Good Lord, how much longer will we have to tolerate this ?
    Tampa is no longer even competitive anymore.

    Tampa is in a race all right, a race to not finish last in the NFC South.
    Don’t forget, Cam Newton and the Panthers are soon coming to a Theater near you.

    So called youth is not an excuse for lack of effort, lack of character, lack of discipline and flat out quitting.Apathetic, cheap owners, bad coaches and players are stealing the fans’ money. I WAS a fan since 76 but I could care less if they move the Bucs somewhere else because no fan should be subjected to this garbage every Sunday. Maybe once the Gkazers realize fan anger has turned into apathy, they will sell or relocate. Until they get serious about putting a winning/competitive product on the field and get rid of the hood at One Buc, the fans are throwing their money away and should stay away.

    First priority after starting a franchise on Maddon 11 last year was to fire Raheem Morris. Can’t tell you how awesome and liberating that felt. It’s funny and sad at the same time. 🙂 Can’t wait for the next era of Buccaneer football.

  23. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Plbuc: you have it mostly correct. We only want the Glazers, Rah and Dom to leave (actually I would settle for the Glazer sons and Rah). Leave the team, players and Dom behind for owners who wont treat the team like an ATM.

    You are totally correct that any fan spending $ on this is just throwing it away. These Glazers hope to win without spending the money. Last year’s soft schedule set us back.

  24. Plbuc Says:

    Papa Glazer did what it took to win and got rid of a great coach,( Dungy) when he couldn’t get past the 1st round of playoffs. His sons went the opposite direction and we now know that “building through the draft” was a big snow job and football talk for we are not spending money on the Bucs that can better serve Man U. This franchise needs a total culture change from top to bottom. Coach Dungy not only taught football but also character. Gruden’s teams never quit. These coaches reward lack of effort and off field issues.What does it tell you when the player displaying the most effort today was recently arrived Haynesworth.
