“Most Comfortable Quarterback Of The Weekend”

November 26th, 2012

The forked tongue of former Bucs guard Ian Beckles began jabbing the Bucs defensive line this morning during the Ron and Ian show on WDAE-AM 620.

Beckles called Matt Ryan “the most comfortable quarterback of the weekend,” and Beckles remains perplexed as to why Gerald McCoy and friends can’t generate more pressure.

Beckles used hyperbole (or he missed parts of the game) saying not one defensive linemen upset Falcons QB Matt Ryan all day yesterday. But inaccuracy aside, his point was clear and accurate; the Bucs D-line had a substandard day.

Joe dove into the same point yesterday. Despite all the wacky line stunts and the unthinkable two-man rush on third down¬†that aren’t their fault, the Bucs defensive line didn’t win overall¬†in the trenches. Michael Bennett wasn’t very much contained, and McCoy and Roy Miller are¬†playing at¬†least a quarter-notch below what¬†they were¬†earlier in the 2012 season.

Regardless, the Bucs defense did enough to win yesterday against the high-powered Falcons. It was the Bucs offense that left an awful lot of points on the field.

    So we came within a point of beating the 1 loss Falcons without any pressure from the D-Line?

    That seems pretty impressive.

    I question why Joe, obviously the best Buccaneer news site around, would waste his time paying attention to anything Ian Beckles would have to say. There is another local sports station that is heads above anything that Ian could ever attain. Commish?

    Gay Lisp Guy brags about “shenanigans going on in the Skank” room (I’m sure his WIFE & DAUGHTER are proud….smh). What that Horse-Molester says….means ZERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Snook Says:

    Am I missing something? Did the Falcons score 55 yesterday? Our offense lost this game. Not the defense. They are who we thought they were.

    And we let em off the hook.

    Bucs are desperate for 2 good CBs. I mean White 1st round and Jones 1st round. Biggers 7th round and Johnson undrafted, who did you think would win. I feel they played good, but come on Defense get off on third down. Too many times Falcons converted on 3rd down. That’s what hurts us the most. Hell if Dominik drafts only CBs and DEs next draft I won’t be sad.

    Ian has a point here. Our D-line hasn’t generated good pressure in awhile and Atlanta doesn’t have the best Oline. Wasn’t it Gerald McCoy who told Sheridan in the beginning of the season to stop all of those stunts and just let them rush straight? My lame opinion is that Sheridan gets too cute and clever. Just let our 4 man rush do their job and they prove they’ll get the job done.

  7. J-villeBucs Says:


    I couldn’t agree more. Sheridan needs to let them do there thing that way we can see if it’s his paly calling or players.

  8. SensibleBuc Says:

    I’m completely disagree with you guys J Ville & Miracle. We’ve seen what this line can do in a straight rush system the past 3 years and we’ve been 29th or lower every year in sacks. This year we’re 28th lol. It’s the players

  9. buccanay Says:

    We have ZERO depth, less than zero actually. With the CB situation, and the inability to get off the field, and no real d-line rotation, our guys are totally GASSED towards the end of games, when the pass rush really needs to step up. McCoy is being doubled the majoriy of the game and he get VERY few plays off. I thought Shiano/Dominik made huge mistake by not keeping/adding D-line depth earlier this year. At one point, we had 3 DE’s on active roster and 9 CB’s. Take a look at the Giants, they have 7 or 8 legitimate starters on the d-line.

    Obvioulsly, we took a huge hit losing Clayborn, BUT, I’m not sold he’s the pass rushing force we need, actually IMO, we dont have that “force” on our team yet. Dont think taking a CB is a slam-dunk by any means, at least, I hope it isnt’. BPA between CB and DL for first 5 rounds, IMO.

    I love Ian and I believe he has some valid points. He is definitely catching up to Diaz on the birthday challenge.

  11. Sneedy16 Says:

    To me I think Gerald McCoy and Roy Miller is beat up and tired. Roy Miller haven’t played a full (healthy) season in years and McCoy never played a full season. They probably needs to adjust to a 16 game season. Next year with a full season under the same DC they should great.

    Dave Moore exposed this guy in an interview the day after Gruber was inducted. Ian was indignant as to why fans didn’t come out to support #74 on his day and D. Moore asked, “Did you make it to the game, Ian?” Uhhhhhh, no. SLAM! And this guy played with Gruber for years. Tells you all you need to know about him. The guy is a phony, from start to finish.

    I love to read some stupid things people here say about our CB’s. QUICK!!! APRIL!! DRAFT A CB!!! So that means Barber came out of college and day 1 became a starter, went to the Pro Bowl year 1, and everyone here knew he would be Hall of Fame ?? Get Real!! LJ has been thrown to the lions and done a hell of a job so far. Yes he needs more coaching and game time. Biggers is better than last year. That’s coaching and system. Barber needed and got ALL of that while people were calling for his head. Was the same with Lynch. Draft is Pick and Hope!
    When every teams CB’s make every play and make no mistakes let me know. Even Pro Bowlers Screw up. And yes even they LOAF after a missed tackle and it’s to late just like RB and LJ.

    Why does anyone bother getting worked up about what Ian Beckles has to say. It makes him feel good to trash our Bucs D-line because it makes him feel relivant. I mean, after all he wasn’t much more than an after thought on the Bucs roster while riding the coat tails of Buccaneer Hall of Famers’. I say, let him have his soap box. That’s about all he’ll ever be known for.
