Joe knows many of you have a throbbing head this morning due to various factors. As a result, to help you ease into a lazy Sunday morning, Joe has more notes from the unexpected night practice for the Bucs at the University of South Florida campus yesterday

* Maybe because the Bucs wanted to try to get as many plays in before the rain came, the early part of practice was non-stop, hurry-up offense. And “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, was especially sharp, slinging the ball to Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Mike Evans and Doug Martin in traffic on successive plays.

* Bruce Carter tips away a Jameis pass that he tried to force underneath.

* There was a Robert Herron sighting. And he caught the ball! Jameis rifled the ball to Herron who caught the ball (!) in stride for a big gain over the middle.

* Mike Glennon threads the ball between double-coverage to Tim Wright.

* Tight end time for Jaboo. In successive plays, he hits Brandon Myers and then found ASJ slicing through the defense over the middle. Just based on underwear football in the first training camp practice, it appears Jameis is fond of throwing to ASJ.

* So far, there hasn’t been one run. Joe counted a grand total of four runs Saturday night.

* If not for underwear football, Glennon would have been chewed up by several defensive linemen. Speaking of defensive ends, William Gholston, playing left defensive end, was putting serious heat on Glennon on each drop back.

* Jameis overthrows Tim Wright over the middle and the pass is nearly picked.

* ASJ goes low over the middle from the right side to dig up a Jameis pass. On the next play with ASJ moving in from the left side, Jameis literally hits ASJ right square in the hands and the ball bounces off as if it hit a brick wall. Couldn’t have thrown that pass with any more accuracy.

* As referenced yesterday, (this repeat’s for you, Mike Glennon Mob) deep down the left sideline, Glennon completes a back-shoulder fade, perfectly — in heavy rain. It may very well have been the prettiest pass Joe has ever seen Glennon throw.

    Though clearly a backup to JW, Glennon has been underrated. Had no OC or OL, to speak of, last year. Glad we still have him; injuries happen.

  2. JabooBuc Says:

    Joe, thanks for all that you do. Love the updates. Do you know if they have already decided to practice at USF today given the high % chance of rain today and the condition of the practice fields at 1 Buc?

  3. Joseph Mamma Says:

    He’s got to be one of the best backups in the league. Now we just need out starter to be one of the best in the league.

  4. Joe Says:


    No changes to schedule (yet).

    Thank you!

    I would of never known of any of this if I didn’t read it here. Sounds like fun even in the rain.

    “Though clearly a backup to JW, Glennon has been underrated.”

    One of Mike Glennon’s biggest issues is that he easily gets flustered in games. He just can’t take game pressure in the pocket. His accuracy gets bad and his feet lock up. He takes forever to throw. And when pressured he makes bad decisions.

  8. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    That, and he has no fire.

    I can’t stand players who say “I lead by playing.”

    Leading is more than that. Especially when he doesn’t even do that well.

  9. The Other Side of the Coin Says:

    It occurs to me that Winston may be the best thing to happen to Glennon. He may be learning how to be confidently aggressive in his play. Fearlessness is a good quality to have. Something he seemed to lack so far in his career. Needs to be tempered with skill and experience of course, but is an essential quality for a good quarterback.

    Thank you Joes for all your hard work and consistent updates. That’s what makes this the best Bucs site out there.

    I am excited to get out there and watch some practices. With 2 pass catching tight ends and 2 elite receivers we could revive that dominate patriots offense they had. Maybe just maybe we could have a decent slot guy in Kenny bell as well. Aw man, too much friggin excitment!

    William Gholston, playing left defensive end, was putting serious heat on Glennon on each drop back. It is great hear that Gholston is putting pressure on the QB. That month long camp for DE he just attended sounds like it is paying off. He is already one of the best DE against the run. If he can pressure the QB..look out!

    ASJ dropped another pass? I do not care if it is raining, he had two drops last year with only 21 receptions? Whats that? One dropped pass 10% of the time. Time to hold on to the ball and break some tackles ASJ.

    Is Robert Herron faster than Kenny Bell?
