Vincent Jackson Likes Bucs’ Direction

May 19th, 2012

Whenever Joe thinks of the grotesque 10-game losing streak last season that resulted in the jettisoning of then-coach Raheem Morris, Joe usually has to gulp Mylanta.

Bad fundamentals, horrid tackling, matador rush defense, fumbles, interceptions… Joe doesn’t know where to being — or end!

Now the little bit Joe has seen of the New Schiano Order, Joe has been impressed with the style of practices, attention to detail and stressing of fundamentals.

It seems wide receiver Vincent Jackson is impressed as well. The big fish of the Bucs free agent shopping this offseason took to Twitter and boasted about the team.

@VincentTJackson: What an amazing week at One Buc! We are steady [sic] becoming the team we want to be. Plenty of work to do, but this is gonna be a fun journey!

Now remember that Jackson comes from the Chargers where the team was expected to be in the playoffs and often went deep in the playoffs. So if Jackson likes the direction of the Bucs thus far — though it is still very, very early — this should be a good sign.

Certainly the Bucs receivers will get better with the addition of Jackson, that much one can pretty much take to the bank.

    Its not against the rules that the best two players on the roster are experienced free agents?

    cuts are coming. what potential free agents do you think we should and will sign if any? also what shocking cut do you think we will make?

    this is a good sign. military style practice is and always will be the way to go. i would make them run till they all puked. then make quincy do suicides all day everyday. they would be sorry if i was there coach that for sure.

    Maybe Vincent Jackson finally feels like he has a cast of playmakers around…the charges was always good but he only had Antonio gates really helping him. We have weapons they can’t double cover him and mike Williams so someone is gonna get off always…so excited

    I can, LadyZ…It was last summer, after the 10-6 season 🙁

    I thought the great perennial pro bowler and playoff participant lagerrette Blount made our offense unstoppable – wait – Blount is neither.

    I agree let’s pin our hopes on a successful player like vj

  10. Stevek Says:


    Blount is still a decent RB.

    We lacked offensive talent/coaching.

    We should be better on both fronts.

    Blount can become a very important piece to puzzle.

    No telling because who knows who will be cut by other teams in the coming months?

    Joe is pretty sure Bucs fans have seen the last of Dezmon Briscoe.

    Thomas 2.2 – I’m glad to see you not crying anymore. Still sour I see though…

  13. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    When Blount proves himself this year Thomas will pretend his above comments were never made.

    Signing Vince Jackson was great, because we must see this year IF Josh Freeman is the QB we think he can be.
