Jamon Meredith Hoping To Build

October 17th, 2012

When Joe got a chance to chat with Bucs right guard Jamon Meredith today, the South Carolina product was unmoved by his performance Sunday if not tight-lipped.

Meredith is the latest in the revolving door of starters on the right side of the offensive line. Unimpressed with the play of Ted Larsen, Meredith started at right guard Sunday against the Chiefs, largely receiving high praise for helping keep quarterback Josh Freeman’s jersey clean.

Meredith told Joe he needs a lot of work before he reaches a level of play good enough to lock up the starting position.

“Of course I have to improve, everybody has to improve,” Meredith said. “It was not pretty [Sunday], but not bad. I have to build on it.

“I am happy I was playing and I am happy the good Lord kept me safe and I am happy my coaches and teammates believed in me,” Meredith said. “Myself, I want to do better and try to get better every week.”

Joe pried, but was stiff-armed, when he asked Meredith what he needed to work on, specifically, to improve his game.

“I really don’t want to say that because I don’t want to tip everybody to my weaknesses,” Meredith said.

If Meredith can improve his play to his standards, it will go a long way to the Bucs having depth on the offensive line, with former starters Jeremy Trueblood and Larsen riding the pine.

    If Meredith is less than spectacular Trueblood should at least get an opportunity to see what he can do. Although, if we are switching to a more pass happy, deep throw offense then Freeman will need all the time he can get.

    Either way, I hope we absolutely SMASH the Saints at home in the creamsicle uniforms! GET EM!

    His biggest weakness is that he’s a ROT playin RG. In the Preseason he was playing too tall and on passing downs was getting blasted.

    I believe his weakness is pulling on run plays, as he looked as inert as a thick turd in preseason.
