Mr. Punt Block

November 22nd, 2013

If Bucs commander is remembered for anything in his days as Bucs coach — no, not his one-way, get-out-of-town feud with DJ Toes on the Line, not his staying above the fray in the leaky Rip Van Freeman soap opera, not the MRSA mess — it will be punt blocking.

In Schiano’s short times with the Bucs, the team has been the best in the NFL at punt blocks. The Bucs lead the NFL with four punt blocks since the start of the 2012 season.

Of those four punt blocks, Dekoda Watson has three. Naturally, Watson leads the NFL in blocked punts during that same time span.

In fact, Watson is one of just two players in the NFL with multiple blocked punts since the start of last season. The other is Houston’s Bryan Braman, who, incidentally, is also a linebacker like Watson.

Now Joe finds all of this punt-block focus cool, but Joe just wishes the coaching staff would have the same passion and mindset about drilling quarterbacks . Then maybe the Bucs might have a few more wins this year.

    What good is drilling QB’s when you are bound to get a 15 yard penalty for hitting them too hard? Hell, if your hand touches their helmet it’s a 15 yarder.

    Don’t have the DE that can get there, that is why they were running so many stunts to create confusion. Biggest need of this team is DE!

    Please check our record in games where we have blocked a punt under Schiano.

    I think we have won them all.
