Time For A Football Fix

Yes, the Bucs held OTAs for three days at One Buc Palace. Only one of those practices was open for the gazing eyes of the Tampa Bay pen and mic club.

That doesn’t mean no one was watching.

Thanks to the fine folks at Buccaneers.com, they have highlights of all OTA practices this week in a nicely packaged video. Joe believes this will give you a football fix on this lazy May Saturday afternoon, albeit underwear football.

    Buy your tickets!

    That’s what the Bucs are telling fans with this video.

    Jameis is magic.

    So is Bowers still on the team if he’s saying he HAD no fun in Tampa? Can’t find anywhere it says he’s released, but that comment implies that he’s gone.

    it may only be me but from looking at this video there wasn’t was single receiver thrown too that look like they had any kind of breakaway speed or even above average speed, hope it’s just my eyes playing tricks on me

  4. Andrew 1 Says:

    Nm he is gone. Wow that’s how much Bowers meant.

    bowers plays for the saints I believe….he seems like a dude that would say something like that, it was no fun watching him play that’s for sure. it’s kind of funny bowers in new Orleans and clayborne in Atlanta, the o line should dominate the line of scrimmage on outside runs directly at those two

  6. Jason Says:

    Bowers tried out for the Saints, but he’s still unsigned

  7. Mike10 Says:

    Bowers tried out at their rookie mini cAmp

  8. LargoBuc Says:

    I thought Clayborn was decent when healthy. Not very fast though buy he has strength and can go for 60 minutes. Hopefully Johnson will be an upgrade at what the other Johnson brought last season.

    F#!k Bowers. What a bum

  12. Buccfan37 Says:

    Bowers sure had ample chances to prove something, anything but in the end delivered a big fat zero.

  13. Owlykat Says:

    We have plenty of speedy WRs this year who have good hands too: Murphy, Bell, and Clay. Herron is plenty fast too but showed stone hands last year. If he isn’t way improved this year, he is toast. I wouldn’t mind seeing Sims try out for Slot Receiver too, especially if our Big Back at 241 pounds as an unpicked in the draft starter in our backfield and we have three other Veteran Running Backs too. I think our top TE is going to get a lot more throws this year and we will have a triple tower receiving corps going for us too. If the OL is greatly improved this is going to be a very competitive team that Joe and the rest of us will be proud to watch.

    I didn’t know Bowers said that, but was listening to moving the chains with Jim n Pat, interviewing Michael Johnson, he said the same thing about finally having fun on defense again in Cincinnati, but the host were trying to get him to rip on Tampa ,like mentioning appreciating a place when you’re gone, like Tampa was so bad, it made him appreciate Cincinnati. He also must’ve hated the facilities here as he mentioned how he definitely appreciates Cincinnatis equipment room…..really? I thought the Bucs had world class facilities , and the host were cracking up at the Bucs not even having the basics, a total bash on the Bucs (especially Pat Kirwan ), like Johnsons failure had nothing to do with him, and Cincinnati fans feel he’s the missing link. (Insert joke)

    I agree Clayborn was solid when healthy, the biggest knock on him is his durability. I wanted to see what he could do last season in the cover-2 where he wouldn’t have been forced to stunt so much or cover WR’s. Bowers is a whole different story I seriously doubt he’ll even be on the Saints roster when the season starts.

  16. Mathias119 Says:

    I love the passes that showed defenders diving at the ball but were just out of reach as they hit the receiver’s hands. That’s pro placement.

  17. Jim Says:

    Bowers is now doing what he loves most. Type this into Youtube and see Da’Quan’s true calling: _hBh9rSnqzM

    “it may only be me but from looking at this video there wasn’t was single receiver thrown too that look like they had any kind of breakaway speed or even above average speed, hope it’s just my eyes playing tricks on me.”

    Wow. It’s weird how people see things differently.

    What I saw was this…kept their eyes on the ball UNTIL they caught it, but remained on the move, resulting in yards after catch.

    How long has it been since we’ve seen that?

    From what I recall, WRs would sometimes turn away to run before they fully caught the ball, or would hesitate just after catch and get hit.

    Now, I realize it is early in the training program, but to see this change so soon…that is a great sign of the improvements Dirk is making.
