Parrish Gets Big Vote Of Confidence

October 30th, 2012

Roscoe Parrish doesn’t look like a good punt returner anymore like he was four years ago, but the leader of the New Schiano Order thinks otherwise.

Speaking on WDAE-AM 620 last night, Greg Schiano said he expects big things from Parrish in the second half of the season, and the head coach says he gets a special feeling when Parrish catches a punt.

“I do think Roscoe is the guy to do it. I think he’s experienced. He’s still got a lot of pop to him,” Schiano said. “You know, I get excited when he fields it. I kinda feel like something could happen. It hasn’t yet, but I think it will.”

Joe also gets excited when Parrish fields a punt. But it’s not for what might happen next; Joe’s only excited because Parrish, in fact, fielded it.

Joe hopes as much as the next fan that Schiano’s evaluation is correct and 30-year-old Parrish can revive his glory days with the Bills in 2007 and 2008, but Joe’s not seeing a dangerous punt return game in the Bucs’ future until they can address it in the offseason.

    I get stressed, lol.

    Parrish Makes The Tim Brown of ’04 look good in the punt return dept. I hope he proves me wrong…he was good in Buffalo once upon a time.

  3. Vic Says:

    Desperation pickup. If he can stop fumbling then that’s good enough the rest of the way

  4. Dano Says:

    He makes me nervous. Bucs return game doesn’t get talked about much,
    but dayum it has been pitiful so far. They need to do something!

    The video HITS ! It is very well recorded, and Parrish has good pitch. He should sing more! I hear he has a new, hit song in the making called “I am old, and I’m slow, don’t hit me no mo” ?

  6. Ladyz Says:

    Wonder if his eye sight needs to be checked. Fumbling could be caused by depth perception.

  7. lightningbuc Says:

    I get excited when he signals for a fair catch!

    When Miguel’s in Miami, riding through Upton in a convertible Mustang, he jams out to:

    Rollin in my 5.0
    With my ragtop down so my hair can blow
    The girlies on standby
    Waving just to say HI
    Did you stop?
    No–I just drove by
    Kept on pursuing to the next stop
    I busted a left and I’m heading to the next block
    That block was dead
    Yo–so I continued to A1A Beachfront Ave.
    Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis
    Rockman lovers driving Lamborghinis
    Jealous ’cause I’m out getting mine
    Shay with a guage and Vanilla with a nine
    Reading for the chumps on the wall
    The Chumps are acting ill because they’re so full of eight balls
    Gunshots ranged out like a bell
    I grabbed my nine–
    All I heard were shells
    Fallin on the concrete real fast
    Jumped in my car, slammed on the gas
    Bumper to bumper the avenue’s packed
    I’m tryin to get away before the jackers jacke
    Police on the scene
    You know what I mean
    They passed me up, confronted all the dope fiends
    If there was a problem
    Yo, I’ll solve it
    Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it
    Ice Ice Baby

    “when Parrish catches a punt” is the key. Talk like this usually means he will be cut soon.

  10. Capt. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Punts are harder to catch than kickoffs. On punts the ball spirals and is affected by the wind, kickoffs are usually flipping end over end and usually land deep in the endzone resulting in touchbacks. Punts are usually shorter than kickoffs so there is less time to react once you catch the ball. The NFL punt return average is only about 11 yards per return. 11 yards is not a big enough reward to risk losing focus on catching the ball trying to get a headstart on the coverage team. If the returner would concentrate on securing the catch first and then fell to the ground would be better than taking their eyes off the ball looking for an open lane. Sure there is the 1 in 50 chance he could break it to the house, but the odds are still an 11 yard return avg. The risk outweighs the reward, especially since our offense has been efficiently moving the ball downfield from anywhere they start. Just catch the ball.

    Joe, with Blount almost ineffective, why isn’t Mike Smith activated and why isn’t he fielding KOs and punts as he did in preseason, is there a problem?

    Joe is equally perplexed.
