Titans Watch: 26 More Days

August 18th, 2015

McCLuster Joe’s already called opening day against the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 13 in Tampa a “must-win.”

It’s not a must-win for the standings. Duh. But it is necessary for the psyche of a fanbase that’s hasn’t seen a home victory since 2013, and compares Jameis Winston to Marcus Mariota.

Leave it to the lousy Titans to be confused by how to use one of their top free-agents last year, Dexter McCluster, the pride of Largo.

Joe hoped McCluster, the do-it-all running back/returner was on the Bucs’ radar last season, but that didn’t happen. Instead, the 2013 Pro Bowler, who’s still just 25 years old, signed with Tennessee for about $4 million per year and little guaranteed money.

Now, McCluster is publicly begging for the rock, reports The Tennesseean.

“When people say, ‘How do you use this guy?’ or they claim they can’t use him, I say, ‘Just let me play,’” McCluster said. “That’s all I ask: ‘Let me prove to you what I can do.’ ”

Last season he had 26 catches for 197 yards, 40 rushing attempts for 131 yards and 22 punt returns for 155 yards. He had the fifth most catches on the team and the third most rushing attempts.

    I look forward to seeing you all at Peggy’s for this game. (that bar is 600 yards from my house, lol)

    Oops, I just read the fine print, you are doing the Oldsmar location, not Palm Harbor.

    If we don’t cover on special teams any better than we did last Saturday night….anyone returning against us should scare you Joe!

    Dexter was a rb at Largo. And believe it or not, L Johnson was a qb! Needless to say our offense was very fast and dangerous using a read option.
    Johnson also played safety, so im really surprised he hasnt gotten a look there. He just doesnt have the speed to play corner.

    It’s hard to believe that all of us die-hard fans are wanting football so badly that we are this excited to watch the 2 worst teams in the NFL play each other, lol

    You should partner up with that Bus company again!! You might want to cover all bases and have that bus ready for the one way trip to the Sky Way, just in case!!!!!

    Maybe Tennessee had a tank job going last year themselves, but the Bucs out tanked them. They would probably have taken Mariota if picking first anyway.

  8. White Tiger Says:

    Speaking of lousy…have you seen the Buccaneer offensive line and defensive confusion?

    Should be a heck of a game…Mariota seemed to fair about as well as Jameis – and he ran against the first team defense – and threw a couple of laser shots – along with HIS interception. He accounted

    …for a scoring drive…
