Jags Loss Makes Dotson Want To Spit

RT Demar Dotson was anything but smiles when he spoke of the level of Bucs offensive line play Friday

Joe is confident many Bucs fans share in Demar Dotson’s disgust. Bucs fans watched the offensive line last Friday and wanted to hurl.

Dotson, the lone member of the Bucs’ offensive line who played reasonably well, watched the film more than any Tampa Bay fan and left that experience searching for Scope because he had such a bad taste in his mouth.

“No doubt about it,” Dotson said. “We put bad film out there and film don’t lie. Guys have to get better, this football team has to get better so we have to go out there and get better.

[Saturday against the Dolphins] is the first opportunity to get back out and prove ourselves from that last game and get that taste out of our mouth and we need it. We need to get out [there] in front of all of our home fans and show we can play better football than what we played last week. It is an opportunity to show the whole nation… that we are better than that.”

There is not much more to say about how wretched the offensive line was last week. It was obvious to all.

The cool thing is that happy-go-lucky Dotson is angry about how awful the Bucs’ front line played against the Jags.

After practice today, Lovie Smith noted that everyone on the team should be angered by the level of play.

    I think this will be one exciting preseason game, Lovie told the fans to be “patient”.But a lot of fans are on the edge of already throwing the whole season away if the Bucs offense looks that bad again. A lot were expect good times and playoffs and then they saw fridays game.

    This is almost one of those must win games, but it is a must look good game. so much is riding on this game for fans.

    @Realist – I feel like your handle is meant to be ironic, given your take on most things. The second preseason game is a “must win”. WOW!!! You’ve set the mark my friend.

  3. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    for a lot of fans yes, its a must win ( more of a need to look good than a win) or they will check out.

    I thought that L&L have to rebuild a gabage roster (thx popstar) and it will be year 3 when we see “real” results.

    I said the bucs were terrible last year and enjoyed every game because they were who i thought they were.

  4. That Guy Says:

    Don’t bother reading the “Realist’s” comments. Just imagine a series of loud wet farts, brought on by his mother’s chili.

  5. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    @that guy

    your dead wrong, Mom’s chili does not come around until the first cold front comes. when it does you can have the first opportunity to pull my finger.

  6. Patrick in VA Says:

    @That Guy – I feel like a fart that is both wet and loud has likely made the transition and is no longer a fart

  7. Patrick in VA Says:

    This is the kind of high brow comments you get when you come to JBF folks

  8. Harry Says:

    You crack me up. “pull my finger”

  9. BFFL Says:

    After watching the game again I observed that Glennon got the ball out quickly and in rhythm compared to McCown. Glennon did a much better job playing within the system and not trying to do too much. I know this is not a popular thing to say because most of the blame belongs on the OL, but I guarantee you Tedford noticed it. If McCown does not correct this and Glennon continues to impress, then I hope Lovie will make the switch sooner rather than later.

  10. That Guy Says:

    Patrick gets it.

  11. Patrick in VA Says:

    Way to get off topic TBBF.

  12. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    no, BFFL gets it

    lovie and tedford are being foolish if they don’t start to give some first team snaps to Glennon.

  13. Patrick in VA Says:

    Sorry, bffl. Should’ve double checked

  14. Bobby Says:

    must win game??? Dude, they use these games to evaluate talent. They don’t game plan. They need to improve and find someone who can play guard but they don’t need to win ANY preseason game.

  15. FanOfBucs Says:

    I love that Dotson cares and ain’t shy to call out the performance if his line mates.

    Leadership from Dotson! Keep ’em in line Dotson!!

  16. BFFL Says:

    @ Patrick

    Sorry to get off topic but I had nothing to add about the topic of farts.

  17. jo_mama Says:

    I don’t care if we lose all the pre season games. As long as we look good and can evaluate the talent or lack there of that we have.

    I want to have a clear starter at QB and not have to make a shift mid way through the season or even at the end.

    I’m not expecting to make the playoffs this year. In fact I would be happy with a 6-10 season at this point as long as in the losses we kept it close.

    New Coaching Staff, New QB, Young Team, History of being a Bottom Dweller the expectations are low but what we don’t want is dismal.

    Just to see how bad the bucs are as an Organization lets look at our Past Drafts.

    2008 – No one left on the Team
    2009 – No one left on the Team
    2010 – 1 Gerald McCoy


    2008 2 Players Mayo and Slater
    2009 3 Players Chung, Volmer, Edelman
    2010 2 Players Mcorty Gronk (Plus Hernandez)

    If you want to be the best you need to compare yourself to the best.

    The Pats have 7 Players left on the Roster Compared to our 1. Would have been 8 if not for Hernandez inability not to kill people in his back yard.

    They also had two of our players last year Aqib Talib and Blount.

    The its obvious the Bucs are doing something wrong.

    It makes me want to Spit too.

  18. Couch Fan Says:


    I agree with you most of the time but did you really enjoy every game last year? Ouch.

  19. Louis Friend Says:

    BFFL and Realist – one completely vanilla sample from preseason game #1 doesn’t tell the tale for either QB. They are both still question marks. Glennon 13 games in 2013 gives him more starting experience than McCown over the last few years (feels weird writing that) – so I think oddly enough McCown needs more time on the field than Glennon does.

    It’s kind of bizarre, to me at least. This great guy, field coach, leader, etc – he doesn’t have enough recent game experience to really feel in control of an offense right off the bat. 35 or not, he needs more time to work out his own jitters and screw ups.

    I know that looks weird on the surface when recalling McCown’s *illustrious* veteran experience. But I don’t think mental reps as a backup can really prepare a man to walk in as the field general from day one. It’s a difference experience, and I really don’t know that he’s ready to go at full speed. He needs more reps with real bullets flying.

  20. Louis Friend Says:

    I’ll add a caveat to the above and say that if McCown is really stinking up the joint through game 3 – then I think Lovie should rethink his ‘QB of the future’ statement to maybe ‘QB of the present’.

    Glennon isn’t going to walk on water, but after the crap he went through last season he can’t be anything but better in 2014. We hope.

  21. The Ether Says:

    Joe(s), you need to upgrade this site with some ‘thumbs up’ ‘thumbs down’ options for a lot of these jokers…

    Your site gets hits… and so you get comments… Why not raise the bar on the quality of comments, so we dont have to sift through the ignorant and the inbred to get to some rational reactions…

  22. VancouverBucsFan Says:

    Thumbs up/down great idea.

    I don’t know why the organization can’t pull the trigger on a trade!!! We need better o-linemen… Enough with the we want a champion stuff… Show me don’t tell me!

  23. FanOfBucs Says:

    +2 on the thumbs up/down feature!

  24. Patrick in VA Says:

    @ether & friends – it was admittedly, and acknowledged, low brow conversation and I apologize for making you hit the scroll button a few times before you could get to the very serious business of discussing what we all think the Bucs should do about their o-line. Buc management is in dire need of our guidance and what we have to say certainly matters so we’ll take our attempts at camaraderie and fun elsewhere. That way you guys can get to the business at hand.

  25. Jim Walker Says:

    Dotson has unlimited potential. He has the tools and the talent. I think he had a pro-bowl season last year. Let’s hope he plays at that level again and gets the kudos he deserves.
