“The Chemistry Is Key”

November 17th, 2013

Darrelle Revis says he sees the intense work, sometimes after practice, that Mike Glennon and Vincent Jackson put in together and how that’s clicking, and it reminds him of what he saw in New York. 

Speaking to Joe after the Bucs win today, Revis said those two remind him of how his old Jets teammates, Chad Pennington and Laveranues Coles, logged endless hours building chemistry during Revis’ rookie season.

“The chemistry is key,” Revis said, speaking like a man who understands the unspoken edge a QB-receiver combination can gain.

Jackson also spoke about the extra time and work with Glennon to improve timing on deep balls and capitalize on the 1-on-1 coverage when it comes anywhere on the field.

That chemistry was evident today as Jackson flashed his Pro Bowl form with 10 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown. The Bucs targeted Jackson 12 times, leading a much improved success ratio versus previous weeks.

For Joe, it was eerie how much the Glennon-to-Jackson combination today looked like Josh Freeman-to-Jackson through much of last season. But it was a new look for the 2013 Bucs.

    except that Glennon also hit the short and medium passes, sometimes we forget how many times that JFro-6pak went 3 and out until the 4th quarter. In fact, Was there ever a time back then that an offense was up 2 touchdowns back then???

    I like this chemistry better than Adderall…or was it Ritilin?

    I wonder if the team still hates Schiano or won’t play for him? That’s the biggest BS of the entire season so far, bigger than MRSA, and bigger than Freeman.

    You guys see Freeman start today for the Vis? Me either….

    In other news Glenmon had a 137.5 passer rating today. Did Freeman ever break 100?

    My sons have Freeman jerseys btw…
