“All Of Us Is Open”

November 29th, 2012

This somewhat disturbing link to the “SoundFX” video of Sunday’s Bucs-Falcons game includes conversations among receivers and Tony Gonzalez on the Atlanta sideline.

Now Joe realizes many receivers assume they’re open on every play, but it was still troubling to hear the flow that led to Gonzalez saying “all of us is open.” And considering Matt Ryan completed a staggering 81.3 percent of his passes Sunday, it’s hard to discount the concept that the Bucs aren’t covering well across the board.

Joe hopes the Denver receivers feel a little more Buccaneer breath as they run their routes.

    all of us is illiterate

  2. Meh Says:

    We need to draft a corner with every single pick this offseason. I’m only half joking.

  3. stevek Says:

    We lack talent and depth within the entire roster, especially on Defense.

    This is quite simple, our 2 starting CB’s are history. One was picked 20th overall, and has been a headcase until he was finally shipped out, and the other is suspended for the next 4 games.

    We struggle getting the to the opposing Quarterback.

    Why didn’t we make a play for Jonathan Joseph 2 offseasons ago? Intead we cashed out after getting a punter.

    So, this problem we are in, is all on our front office. We are unable to undue 9+ years of ownership neglect in one season, but we are making progress.

    I wish we would have spent on some additional FA’s prior to this past offseason. CB Jonathan Joseph is worht the $7,000,000.00 that Wright is pissing away.

    It’s amazing they only lost by one. I think the Bucs are facing their biggest challenge this coming week.

    Many Buc fans are still having nightmares about that Monday night game where Peyton picked them apart.

    Even if the Bucs can acquire the best CB in NFL history, the other team will just avoid him. They need balance on defense and it starts with the DL. They have spent heavily at those positions and have very little to show for it.

    good thing he is a HOF tight end….his grammar is horrible.

  6. Justin Says:

    This is commonplace on the sidelines of any football game at any level. After a few completions EVERY wide receiver/tight end thinks they are open on EVERY play.

    Now, still we have major issues on the back end of our defense. Those guys are due for a solid game. Maybe this is it this week.

  7. Ramdog Says:

    After that he said “ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US”. LOL. Must agree with Stevek Joseph is a beast I was reading another website about last years’ free agents here is what they said about the Wright signing – this is an exact quote mind you.

    Eric Wright, CB, Lions. Age: 27. — Signed with Buccaneers (5 years, $37.5 million) WTF!? –

    they had him ranked as the number 39 free agent corner of last year. We probably overspent a tad. According to profootball focus he is a little bit better than Biggers.

  8. NJBucsFan Says:

    Honey Badger is declaring according to Bleacher Report…if he’s cleaned up, do you think he could be a Buccaneer Man?

    I’m concerned about him…possible Pacman Jr. or possible Cris Carter after he cleaned up.

  9. McBuc Says:

    What makes you guys think Joseph wanted to come here, or that he would make a big difference. Granted, nothing could be worse than what we are seeing, but those two big money FA corners the Eagles have are not making a difference.

  10. k1ngAdroc Says:

    I am a buc fan through and through but I don’t think this will be the week that our back end gets right. Our backup CB’s are playing their hearts out but they are over matched in a relatively new system while going against a well-oiled machine with a coach on the field and 2 great tackles.

    This week, no pressure on Payton = loss and possibly an embarrassing one at that. i’ll be there tho, rooting our Buc’s on and hoping for best. GO BUCS

    That is somewhat disturbing … to English teachers everywhere.

  12. Fredoary Says:

    On INSIDE THE NFL last night Julio Jones is mic’d up and keeps repeating… “I run by him and he’s just standing there…” referring to the guy who was supposed to be covering him.

    I wonder if anyone important watches these shows…

  13. OAR Says:

    Open?….The football’s like a one-man cold to Clifford Franklin. Clifford Franklin’s the only man catchin’ it, Clifford Franklin’s the only man comin’ down wid it.

  14. stevek Says:


    Joseph would have “wanted” or “considered” to come to Tamap Bay, if our greedy owners “showed him the money”…

    Why do we overpay for a moron CB with Talib size problems, and half the talent?

    Why did we lay an egg two offseasons ago, sign a freaking kicker, and then force our hand to pick up Haynesworth. Our owners need to spend this offseason again, and utilize the salary cap to win some damn games, and win some more talent in the offseason.

    Fact: Glazer Boys like soccer more, and they are more vested in it. I can’t be mad at that, but they should have still stepped it up over the last 9 years.

    There used to be a waiting list for season tickets, but since they turned their backs on their responsiblity as owners, we can’t sell out.

    CB Jonathan Joseph should’ve atleast received communication about coming here back before 2011. Rememeer, we were once 10-6, and tie breakered out of the playoffs. Who is to say if we utilized more than 55% of the salary cap, that we have the talent to make the playoffs?

  15. bucfanjeff Says:

    We be 32nd in pass defense, they be a reason you’s is open.

  16. Ian's Gay Lisp & Ron's Drinking Problem Says:

    Hey Tony…..it’s “All of us BE open”

  17. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Although Schiano hit home runs with Sullivan, Bostad, Byner & Cox I believe we’re gonna need a new DC and a new DB coach next year. DB coach for sure. These guys are not being coached up as they should and I believe Ron Cooper was way overrated coming out of LSU. LSU still has a top-20 pass defense this year even without Cooper. Compare that to Wisconsin’s loss of Bostad…they went from a dominating o-line to a horrible one in just a single season without him. I believe Cooper is part of the problem here.

    Before you go ranting like you know what you are talking about, how about you get your facts straight.. During that off season Tampa ACTIVELY pursued Johnathon Joseph and even showed him the money. He declined and went to the more super bowl ready team at the time. That year Tampa went after lots of FA’s but who would want to come here when compared to other perennial playoff teams?

    You fail to realize not a players chase dollar signs, some actually do care about hoisting the Lombardi trophy..

  19. BigMacAttack Says:

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments about his statement. I have numerous things I wanted to say too, but hoped to avoid the ramifications. Excuse me now, I have to get back to conversating with a client.

  20. Kyle Says:

    1) They were referring to that one play, not the entire game. Coverage was actually better than it has been at other times this year.

    2) Who says we didn’t go after Joseph two years ago? There’s no way to know for sure.

  21. Pete Dutcher Says:


    Just curious…what makes Joseph so good? He has only had 2 complete seasons his whole career, and one of them he only started 9 games. His last complete one was back in 2009.

    He’s only had more than 4 inceptions once (6), and had 4 only twice.

    I really do not see how he is a step up from Talib or Wright.

    So far as CBs, it’s not like they didn’t draft any. They took Talib, Biggers and Tandy in 3 of the last 4 drafts, along with taking 3 DBs over the last 3 years.

    I can’t complain about the last draft at all. Yeah, I was hoping to have CB addressed but shoot, Barren, Martin and David with the first 3 picks was fantastic.

    They also at least made the effort and went after Wright…along with whoever else we don’t know about.

    The way I look at it, I figured they couldn’t fix everything at once. This team is doing remarkably well considering the holes that need to be filled.

    I would like to see DT (Miller’s spot) addressed with better quality, CB and OT addressed in the next draft personally.

    And I would LOVE to have a competent backup QB in the house, cause if freeman goes down, this team is screwed from all directions.
