Training Camp Video: Bad Snap, Take 2

August 2nd, 2015


Of course, there surely are Zapruder film lunatics who will dissect the exclusive practice video below from last night’s downpour at the University of South Florida.

Joe’s already dissected much of the practice and offered uplifting and depressing video. (Scroll down the homepage.)

This is the last of Joe’s video: It’s the second botched exchange between Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, and Evan (Dietrich) Smith.

Joe sincerely hopes Jameis and the offense and coaches learned a valuable lesson last night. Day 2 of practice is today at 4:30 p.m. at One Buc Palace, weather permitting.

    I know it was raining and all, but damn Evan knock that shyte off..

    Let’s not go overboard. First day of camp in a complete downpour. Cut ’em some slack.

  3. Buc1987 Says:

    Jaboo…I’m sorry but Evan Smith is just about the only player on the team right now that I won’t cut any slack.

    Thanks for mentioning the time of the next one, Joe. I wasn’t sure when it was scheduled for (and we all know it will be delayed).

    As to Evans, I would be surprised if he gets much better. At best, maybe 66 percent fewer botched attempts when it isn’t raining. That means at least one per game.

    And last year, it cost us wins at the end of games.

    Enter Ali Marpet at the position he was really drafted to play. At least if he makes mistakes, it’s because he’s learning.

    I need to give Jameis Winston some props. While it is underwear football, I have noticed that he has shaved time off his release. It’s been out in no more than 3.5 seconds, which is a vast improvement over his old average of 4.5 seconds.

    If he’s improved it this much already, I think it’s fair to think he might get it down into the 2.5-3.0 range before the season starts.

    And that’s what Matt Ryann was under Dirk.

    21 yo rookie, day 1 of his on-the-job training, surrounded by 300 lbs terrifying human beings trying to eat him, monsoon conditions… Dude still stays composed… He’s a stud.

    Just thinking about that first day on the job makes me soil my pants.

    Go bucs!! Joe, thanks for getting us fans to this point of the season. I give you a hard time about the occasional functionality of the site, but the content you put out is top notch!!

    Evan Smith blocked well enough for positive scores from Pro Football Focus but he is the worst starting Buc’s Center in memory, but he is a serviceable Guard and needs to switch places with Marpet NOW. He can backup at Center if Marpet goes down.

  8. JabooBuc Says:

    87- to be fair, not sure from that video how you blame Smith for that (though I would assume so).

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I guess we’ll have to take Joe’s word for it that was a “bad” snap….although I really couldn’t tell that from the video…..maybe my eyes aren’t as good as others….

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    If it’s Evan Smith under center one would have to assume it’s his fault…

    Tony McDaniels was just released by Seattle… He is a very solid back up DT… I would rather have him on our roster over Bowers… I hope they grab him off the waiver wire….

  13. The original "Kevin" Says:

    Smith is on my cut list. I dont like his attitude. Something about the guy I dont like. Doesnt seem like he really gives a crap. Maybe Winston can win him over but bad snaps are not something a starting center should be having issues with.

    See mac now that’s the type of content I can respect bro.

  15. The original "Kevin" Says:

    I agree offer mcdaniels a contract. Keep bowers as camp meat

  16. Loggedontosay Says:

    Saturday recorded a record of rain that has not occurred in 42 years. What say you?

  17. mac Says:


    You had to know I was kidding about Evans…

    And I can’t stand New England…

  18. Buccfan37 Says:

    Do you know the Zapruder film was intentionally filmed and then altered to hide the sequence of events during the assassination of JFK. All of the other films made by bystanders were confiscated to protect the official story.

  19. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    😊I feel you mac.

  20. bucsbedabest Says:

    If Evan Smith can’t see his feet, how can he see the football?

  21. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh no errors on day 1!!!!

    Who woulda thunk it…
