“Believe It Or Not, He Does So Much”

November 27th, 2013

Joe’s already written that he’s no fan of Keith Tandy’s game. So Joe’s excited about the return of Dashon Goldson this weekend. But Tandy was a big part of the Bucs’ stout secondary play in Detroit. He followed Greg Schiano’s orders of keeping his “depth” and came away with a key pick of Matthew Stafford.

Goldson raved about Tandy last night on the Buccaneers Radio Network on WDAE-AM 620. Suspended for the Detroit game, “The Hawk” talked about Tandy’s versatility and his quick transition from college cornerback to safety, among other topics.

While listening, Joe felt like Goldson was wagging a finger of shame at Joe.

“He can play. You know what I’m sayin’. We look at him as one of our key players. Believe it or not, he does so much for this team. You don’t notice,” Goldson said. “It’s good to see him succeed on this football field now. Steppin’ up with guys being down or just stepping up period. You know, he’s a good player. We never look at him as a slag, you know. He’s got his hands on what, two balls since I’ve been out. That’s good. Steppin’ up, man. I appreciate that, man. He holdin’ it down.”

Joe’s happy for Tandy — and happy Goldson will be back for what’s sure to be a physical battle in Carolina.

    I hope the “Hawk” teaches Tandy how to stand in and thump a reciever for him because Goldson can’t stand more personal fouls….
    Although, if he has one more to deliver, I would like it to be on Cammy….perhaps while he’s doing one of his antics after a first down. Something very violent and flagrant….then Tandy can step in again for Goldson’s next suspension.

    No unnecessary roughness penalties either. Know what I’m sayin’?

    Joe what is it about goldson that’s you like so much? He’s not even a top 10 safety. Overpaid and puts our defense in bad situations with dumb penalties. Tandy has outperformed him in his 3 starts than Goldson in 8.

    To be fair Tandy can’t afford the kinds of fines Goldson can so he’s gotta play more cautious. $30,000 ain’t much to Dashon, but thats a ton to Keith.
