McCown: Consistency Is Primary Issue

October 16th, 2014

bobby rainey 1006There are plenty of bright spots in the Buccaneers’ 29th-ranked offense.

And this isn’t just Joe injecting happy talk amid the doom and gloom coming from all angles.

This week, Joe asked Josh McCown to identify good things happening in the offense. In addition to his scouting report on Mike Glennon, McCown was clear that he’s seen success everywhere.

“Guys at every position have showed the ability to make plays. It’s just a consistency thing. We gotta be more consistent. That’s the main thing,” McCown said.

Yes, the Bucs sure have been inconsistent, averaging a little more than four points in the first half of games this season says it all.

Dropped passes have been plentiful. Bobby Rainey had a big day but fumbles a lot. Jorvorskie Lane busted a big run but his number wasn’t called again. The pass protection has had great days and historically bad ones, and the run blocking effort isn’t always there. Glennon doesn’t play a four-quarter game.

But there are sure signs of success on offense. Joe wishes he could say the same for the defense.

    McCown is talking crap.

    You have the worst D in the game. You have to know how to play your position first to get consistent.

    He should join the Swashbucklers.

    Tired of all the excuses.

    ASJ had a good game. Martin was finally starting to look better with his new “one cut and go” approach. Mike Evans was productive. Glennon has been building on some of his success. The defense… well they did actually get better with their gap integrity in the running game as the game went on, unfortunately it was to little to late. With all that being said, There is still a lot of room for improvement obviously.

    Josh McCown…who is “we” and what can you do about it?

    “We gotta be more consistent. That’s the main thing,” McCown said.

  4. Andrew 1 Says:

    This is off topic, but I get the strange feeling that McCoy will not be back.

  5. Buc1987 Says:

    Andrew…so you don’t think things improved as the game went on because the Ravens let up on both sides of the ball? I do.

    @ 1987

    Combination of them letting up a little and us finally starting to get it together, I would say.

    OT…I realize I shoot from the hip and pop off here all the time….Just want to take a moment to thank Joe/s for providing the forum…and thank them for all the hard work they do putting these many articles a day together. It’s fun for us…but gezzo pezzo….alot of WORK for them…Thanks again..

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Anderw…oh okay. Well we’ll see how much they got it together against the hapless Vikings.

  9. DallasBuc Says:

    Joe- Why do you continue to ask McCown what he thinks and report on it? It serves no purpose. This guy may as well not be on this team he is so irrelevant.

    Beating the Vikings would do nothing for this team, they have to best teams on their schedule with potent offense and defenses to gain any confidence in this scheme. Some of these same players were much better last year, just wish they hadn’t lied about the learning curve because the fans would have been now understanding and even though the season is lost they can still turn the corner and be a better team going into next year

    I also want to thank Joe’s for this great Buc’s extravaganza of topic’s and comment’s known as JoeBucsFan. I don’t know who the competition is, but you must be leading it or gaining on it every day. Great job guys!

    I find it ironic that 7 teams have new HC this season… The Bucs went with the most experienced and have now been the most humiliated team in the league…. If the Vikings with their new HC blows out the Bucs then they made a much better decision at HC then the Bucs did!…

    The Glazers wallets will be very happy if McCoy leaves.

    Funny how every player that’s up for a new deal always
    ends up leaving and kicking ass somewhere else.
    Bennett and Zuttah come to mind.

    Funny too how character assassination in the media
    always precedes it.

    Or, our only real successes have come against teams in garbage time (ATL, BAL), a team whose defense is almost as inept as ours (NOLA) missing their stud safety, and an already average Pittsburgh defense down multiple starters. the problem really isn’t consistency, since they’re consistently awful when it really counts.

    I read this article on McCown and now I am farting smoke, what’s up with that?
