Was Sean Jones Loafing Again?

December 12th, 2011

Joe’s heard the “loaf” term tossed around One Buc Palace. Not loaf, as in what Donald Penn might mow down with a pound of sliced roast beef, but “loaf,” as in players giving up on plays.

Supposedly, the Bucs berate and punish players for such acts.

Loaf talk rumbled when the Bucs were torched violenty in San Francisco, and then there was more public loaf chatter after the Bucs got belted in the face at home by the Houston Texans.

For Joe, it was obvious Sean Jones was a loafer against Houston.

Joe doesn’t have an exact definition of how the Bucs define a loaf, but Joe thinks Jones was at it again yesterday. Check out this NFL.com highlight by clicking here. You’ll see Blaine Gabbert tossing a bomb, which was caught behind Jones in centerfield. Jones then chases the receiver headed for the end zone and appears to slow down and look at E.J. Biggers trying to tackle the guy, before Jones then decides to try harder.

Feel free to give your take on the play in the comments, but for Joe this was a “loaf” by Jones. How do you step off the gas when the guy who beats you is near the end zone and your teammate is trying to take him down?

Before the game on the Buccaneers Radio Network, rockstar general manager Mark Dominik talked about how he wants to see the Bucs be a “pursuit team” on defense with “four, five, six guys swarming to the football.”

Apparently, Jones doesn’t read those emails.

Surely, Jones isn’t in the Bucs’ future as the “lasting contender” era marches on. Joe’s not seeing the harm in planting Jones on the bench the rest of the way.

    Yeah I saw him do the same thing .but Raheem said on that play Jackson forget about what coverages he was in …. Imagine that he forgot . Wonder if he can pass a drug test . But no we give him a extension .

  2. Bobby Says:

    I’m not a Jones fan at all. I want to see Ahmad Black in there and see what the kid can do. I mean what’s the excuse for not seeing more of Gaitor and Black…..we might lose???

  3. TheProsUseAdvoCare Says:

    Jones was definitely not running full speed and avoided initial contact when he saw biggers was closer. Bench him.

  4. Mike419 Says:

    Yea that was a loaf no doubt

  5. Bucs Babe Says:

    Wow just wow….disgusted with the “effort” I’ve seen this year, what can be done about this?

  6. lightningbuc Says:

    The last seven games have been one big, steamy, stinky “loaf”.

  7. Jrock Says:

    Dude is expendable and, easily replaceable. I’d like to see what we have in Ahmad Black… then again, I’m a pretty big Gator’s fan (football has not been kind to me this year).

  8. RichinNC Says:

    What is really sad is that the guy loafing is leading the team in tackles. Maybe he is just tired from all the tackling.

  9. Patrick Says:

    I badly want the Bucs to win on national TV on Saturday, but I’m afraid if they do it’ll keep Raheem here

    Ladies and gentlemen, your 2011 Buccaneers! (Un)official team motto: You get what you pay for.

    lets see what black can do, and the linebackers on the practice squad also because at this point im sure young guys who are fighting to make the team will play better that what we have now

  16. thibs5599 Says:

  17. jeff g Says:

    Phuck Sean Jones. Thank you again Joe for the Paradise Limo yesterday to Jackonsville great time crappy team.

  18. knucknbuc Says:

    Been saying this all year in the beginning of the year through the season and now the end. Jones is a scrub and shouldve been benched a long time ago. He sucks and gives up play after play. Yea sure tjax forgot the coverage morris. I think your trying to stick up for this bum thats been playing ss for you all year and has been a loafer. Put his A$$ on the bench where he belongs and play black at least he’ll give maximum effort.

    The NEW Tampa Head Coach will make a lot of Buc’s Yunemployed next year after he watches film.

  20. the_buc_realist Says:

    Joe, you know that Dominik’s guys will not be put on the bench, Not when Dominick is filling out the starting line up card every game.

    How do you think Lumpkin is still on this team???
