“The Problem Is His Effort Stands Out”

December 18th, 2011

Joe can at least feel a pocket of warmth in his heart thinking about Adrian Clayborn and his relentless motor and 7  1/2 sacks, including a sack and a forced fumble tonight.

The Bucs haven’t had a defensive end with that many sacks since Stylez White had eight in 2007.

But the downer is that Clayborn is such a standout on the field when he’s primarily right now a hustle player. Buccaneers Radio Network analyst and former tight end Dave Moore got to the essence of this point about Clayborn after the game when he said, “The problem is his effort stands out.”

Moore went on to praise Da’Quan Bowers’ effort and say Clayborn’s other teammates need to look within themselves and raise their intesnity to put out some good film in the final two games.

    Clayborn doesn’t deserve to be stuck on this team.

    I’d rather they not show up then to try and put stuff on film. Who cares what they put on film. It will not help their cause to get picked up by some other team!

    Clayborn’s the only player I respect on that D. He’s earned his money.

    he needs a supporting staff around him inside lineman heavy rotation every good team has that luxury. Ware wouldnt have 6 sacks without the personnel he has around him all he has to do is beat one guy and take three steps to attack the quaterback. The thing that really sucks is that the Glasers are not going to do a damn thing about it.Every team in the nfc south is building a competitive team a mixture of youth and veteran players all producing. Accept the Buccaneers they had time to scoop up a few linebackers in free agency to give Foster an example of how to produce at the mic position Polsnosky would have been a good fit

    Ruud would have been a great mentor for Foster. But he was blamed for having to make the tackle 5 yards downfield every play and let go. Not much consideration as to why Ruud had to make the play downfield, especially the fact that the runners blew by the D-line in 2 seconds to get to Ruud. I would love to have seen Ruud at middle calling the D, while Foster was on the outside. A few veteran’s these last couple of years would have helped some of the rookies tremendously. Especially in the case of Ruud/Foster.

    There are a ton of reasons why Morris should be replaced, but nobody ever gives the guy any credit for personally lobbying to retain both Cadillac and Ruud. You can’t tell me Pinalto is more valuable to this team than Gilmore, because I see it on the field every time New Orleans plays. While inexperience is a big problem for Morris, a bigger problem is that because of his stature, he has no pull in this organization. Gruden had his way, but he’s had to accept whatever is handed to him and make do with it. It is one thing to not give the team the weapons that they were promised, but it was criminal to take them away!

    Bennett was a monster on the field last night. 3 tackles all for losses, a QB hit, 2 pressures and a sack on 36 snaps. It doesn’t get any better than that, folks. Irf he is healthy he should absolutely be starting on defense. He is our best defensive player. Heck, he is the best player on the team this.
