Jackson Consistency Could Equal Victory

October 24th, 2013

NFL Network analyst and former fullback Heath Evans went to the game film to blast Vincent Jackson. Here’s video of the NFL Network segment.

Evans details three instances in Sunday’s Bucs-Falcons game in which Jackson didn’t get the job done — a drop, a should-have-caught ball, and a fumble. (No, he didn’t include Jackson’s inexcusable personal foul in the end zone.)

On the upside, Evans says more consistency from Jackson could translate into a Buccaneers victory.

There is a load of pressure on Jackson. Given the state of the Bucs offense, Tampa Bay almost has to have an extraordinary game from Jackson in order to compete. It’ll be interesting to see if the Panthers routinely double team him tonight.

    The one guy on this team that I’m not going to blame for all these losses is Jackson.

    Maybe if someone else on the team could produce a drop or two in a game that he had 2 TD’s and 138 yards wouldn’t be so glaring.

    The penalty in the endzone was pretty boneheaded though.

    Too funny how dropped balls, penalties, and fumbles are often mistaken for poor play calling or game planning.

    Right on D-money I agree. I don’t disagree that Jackson has had a case of the drops and what not though. Ideally you’d want that cleaned up, but he is literally the ONLY guy on offense that is producing. In fact, outside of Lavonte David and a 100% Revis he is probably the Bucs best player. Hard for me to rail on that guy. The people that I despise at this very moment in time is every single person on our overrated/overpaid, and under performing Offensive Line. After the Quarterback they take with the second or so pick in the draft (Mariota, Manziel??) they need to work on the trenches the rest of the draft. In my opinion.

    Heck, as bad as Freeman was, he had 2 or 3 passes dropped for TDs alone.

    Jackson has never had great hands. We knew that when we signed him. Of all the troubles on this team, singling out Jackson of all people is the height of stupidity.
