Day 2: Minicamp Notes & Observations

June 17th, 2015

Winston Glennon

Joe sweated his footballs off today at One Buc Palace, Day 2 of mandatory minicamp. Joe’s got your need-to-know below.

*Drop! Wide receiver Rannell Hall.

*It’s America’s Quarterback, and Jameis Winston is working with the first team. It didn’t start pretty. First snap is a near pick by Alterraun Verner, jumping a route on Austin Seferian-Jenkins. The next play is an interception by Lavonte David. Terrible throw.

*Players serenaded to the tunes of Ace Hood.

*Glennon steps in and completes first pass with second team to Donteea Dye.

*It’s an underwear football non-sack of Glennon by Larry English. Would have crushed him in real game.

*Glennon, in shotgun formation, changes play at line and then hits Luke Stocker.

*Ronde Barber and Shaun King are in the house studying practice.

*It’s so hot and sunny, King is slathering on sunscreen of all things, not to mention a pale-face like Joe needing protection.

*Mike Evans skies high for a pretty pass from Glennon in 7-on-7 work. Next play is a near pick on Glennon from linebacker Jason Williams.

*Jameis comes in with a low slant throw to Donteea Dye. Next up is a nice catch bye Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Bucs defenders still trying to slap ball away even after whistle blows.

*Jameis clearly goes through progressions and hits Stocker with a laser.

*A Bill Walsh-type pass! Jameis throws open Tavarres King with a dart over the middle.

*Bruce Carter tries to jump a Jameis throw and got a finger on it. Incomplete.

*Johnthan Banks covering Robert Herron proves a mismatch in favor of the defense.

*Defenders noticeably swarming today, like wasps coming back to the nest.

*Man, Mike Glennon sure looks comfortable. Strike to Seferian-Jenkins.

*Rookie Kaelin Clay was drafted to return kicks, but he sure has some sharp footwork in the receiving game.

*Who? Tight end Evan Rodriguez is covered by Verner and Jameis can’t squeeze in a pass.

*A little rollout for Jameis, not seen much in camp, complete to Adam Humphries.

*Sweet pass from Jameis to Seferian-Jenkins, who makes a basket catch.

*Ouch! A rare underwear football injury moment. Carter appears to have the wind knocked out of him in a collision over the middle. He was closing on Humphries.

*11-on-11 begins. Jameis throws a bomb on left sideline to Vincent Jackson, but V-Jax wasn’t running deep. Welcome to June.

*Glennon complete in left flat to Bobby Rainey. Joe needs a replay. The design of that play was very intriguing.

*Major Wright and D.J. Swearinger are the first-team safeties. Yesterday, it was Bradley McDougald and Chris Conte.

*Scramble! Jameis is on the move to his right. Of course, nobody is allowed to touch him and he is no Mike Vick with his legs.

*McDougald gets a hand on an errant Glennon 20-yard pass. Glennon comes right back, rolling right and hitting Rannell Hall in stride, but Hall needs a juggling catch to hold on.

*Swearinger and leaner, stronger Doug Martin have a long foot race to the end zone at full speed. Fun to watch. A couple of fast dudes there. Martin didn’t gain ground, but didn’t get caught. There’s a lot of energy late in this practice. Could be the cloud cover that arrived after 3 p.m..

*Seferian-Jenkins flashes studly hands on two plays in a short span. Just stay healthy ASJ. What a potential weapon.

    I’m excited Joe!

    “Players serenaded to the tunes of Ace Hood.” Lol I like that Joe! Sounds like a less than impressive day from Winston. Hopefully that’ll help ignite his fire to stay at it until he’s where he need to be.

    Speaking for Pablo

    *Who? Tight end Evan Rodriguez is covered by Verner and Jameis can’t squeeze in a pass.”

    Now Pablo knows his chance of having a Buc with the last name ending in Z is remote….OK, impossible (since Aaron Hernandez found guilty)…..but to say “Who” is really rubbing it in to Pablo. Pablo is a nice guy….loves everybody…and is very friendly….can’t Pablo catch a break? Pablo want’s some brown on the Bucs….What can Brown do for you?….Plenty, Pablo says!!!”

    That was bacon grease.

    Joe you are getting me excited and aroused!! About to go off on tmaxcon’s face!!

    “Jameis throws a bomb on left sideline to Vincent Jackson, but V-Jax wasn’t running deep.” sorry I’m a little confused was v-jax supposed to run deep here? or was jameis not on the same page as him?

    “The design of that play was very intriguing.”
    THAT is what I like to hear.
    Thanks for the teaser, Joe.

  9. Bubashep Says:

    Joe, first of all I love these updates – I don’t know if this has been asked before, but can Joe or someone that knows tell me if most of the plays during these drills are pass plays, because that is what it sounds like from these updates. Seems to me that if most of the plays ran during these no-pad scrimmages are pass plays, then the db’s would have a rather large advantage that they normally wouldn’t have if it was a practice in pads or during a real game.

    How about the punters

    Indoor practice facility. Bacon grease, lmao. Sun screen on a black guy, rotf. At least Winston is getting picked by the 56th best player in the NFL.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    That’s a helluva lot of bacon grease…

  13. WS99 Says:


    I got a half gallon of Hennessy and a case of Heineken with your name on it bro. Let me know when you ready. I’m not a cleaning guy so I won’t renig on you. You heard??!?!?!

  14. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    LOL @ WS99

    @ Joe

    Good stuff! Keep up the great work. Its was damned hot. I got home to a 98F garage. Stay thirsty AND safe my friend.

    Sounds like Glennon is groving to Koetter’s Offense. Hope JW3 can keep pace. Competition is good. I’m sure he will prevail in the end.

    Thanks again Joe(s)!

  15. Jon Says:

    Bet you enjoyed the Ace Hood Joe haha thanks again for keeping us in the loop

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    99…lol you don’t have to do all that. It sure would be nice to hear back about that jersey from Erik the cleaning guy though.

    Still waiting and the draft has been over for how long now?

    I check my e-mail every day and still no reply back, even though he apologized for not getting in touch with me quick enough….and then POOF he’s gone.

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    Liked the recap. Sounds like Glennon is proving his trade value in the practice sessions. Or good backup QB. In that pic MG looks much taller than JW.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    I want Glennon to turn into our own Drew Brees – Phillip Rivers type of situation.

    I guess it won’t happen if he never sees the field though.

  19. WS99 Says:

    That’s exactly what will happen to the bottles “Poof gone”. The bottles are in the bar chilling just so you know. But I can’t spend $1500 a week on weed like you so there’s that sorry bro. Rotf

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL That was only $120 a week sometimes more. Either way it was a much needed $500 jolt of money every month that was much needed.

    In other news…from Tomahawk Nation.

    Where’s my jersey Erik?

  21. Destinjohnny Says:

    Glennon is out playing number 3

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Check back in August Johnny boy. Check back then.

  23. Owlykat Says:

    Love your coverage, Joe. Sorry it was so hot for awhile today. I know Winston suggested the Bucs need an indoor practice field. I think that would help our team be a lot fresher during the season. That idea of the Bucs getting an advantage by sweating to death in practice and OTAs sure didn’t pan out last year!!!

  24. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol same posters always here.

    Yall are consistent I must say 😉
