Hope For Tim Jennings

October 19th, 2015

tim jenningsThe oozing sore at the Bucs’ cornerback position, hand-picked veteran Tim Jennings, is not Sabby The Goat bad.

Jennings seems to know exactly where to be on the field, explains a great source familiar with the Bucs’ defense.

Joe’s talking about former Tampa Bay defensive end Steve White (1996-2001). White breaks down Bucs game film like no other, and puts in the time on every game. During his appearance last week on WDAE-AM 620, White explained that Jennings actually is playing the position properly when it comes to his positioning and responsibilities — nearly 100 percent of the time.

White wanted it clear to fans that Jennings is just not making the plays, not functioning within the scheme.

The pessimist Bucs fan would say this is evidence that 31-year-old Jennings is washed up and his heart isn’t in football any more. The optimist would say this is a good sign, that Jennings will bounce back and doesn’t need to be coached up.

Joe just wants Johnthan Banks back to replace Jennings.

    Jennings will know exactly where he is when he is on the bench also….

  2. BucMania Says:

    When is someone going to ask Lovie about Banks? It’s like he’s forgotten under Lovie when the rest of the world is dying for him to get back.

    So, he is in the right position but just can’t cover or tackle…..perfect! That makes me feel so much more confident in him.

    On a pleasant note, for all of us fortunate enough to be in Tampa, what great weather last night and today. Love the fall!

    Its time for adjustments.

    Jennings may know exactly where he needs to be , but hes never there. Like when he got burned on the deep pass in the fourth quarter. He new he needed to run after the catch was made but decided, Nah, let someone else run after him.

  7. DallasBuc Says:

    Let’s hope he doesn’t need any effective additional coaching because he isn’t going to get from Incompetent Lovie Smith.
    Fans are dizzy from swirling the drain.

    Its Capt.Tim.
    So, ok Tiny, it is very easy to hack someones ID.
    I believe you


    Ok Joe. Here is the idiot who is posting under my name. How can we as JBF posters have healthy debate with one another when you allow a person use the same screen name? Then this idiot has the stones to post on the very thread I was posting on last night!!! Fix it!!! Be a man joe and acknowledge this. This is not a good look for your site.

    I could buy what Steve White is trying to sell if you didn’t see Jennings trying to cover the reciever but while he is running he is actually fading away from the receiver creating a huge coverage gap. That is NOT playing his position properly. There are other times where he just stops covering his guy, presumably because he has reached the end of his area of responsibility, but if you do that and there is not another Buccaneer with in 20 yards, does that really make sense? That scernario might not actually be his fault but is sure makes him look really bad.

  10. Jason McLaurin Says:

    This guy needs to be moved to free safety ASAP. White is dead on and the defense has played tougher since starting Jennings but hes still hiving up the big plays that sting but with his knowledge of our defense he can stop some big plays that Verner and Banks give up as a safety plus he still has speed and coverage ability.

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    Tim Jenning’s is not qualified to be a backup. Thee end.

  12. BucUToo Says:

    Yeah, he was in position to tackle TJ Yeldon too, but he planted both feet flat, and ended up getting run over…multiple times. It doesn’t help to be in position if you dont make the damn play! Even my 16 year old nephew who plays high school ball was calling him out on his poor tackling technique. On one play, he had Yeldon dead to rights on a huge loss. Only to be stepped on like a doormat on the way to a big gain. Not to mention the loafing as Joe has already pointed out. Jennings needs ride the pine for a bit.

  13. Jeff Says:

    Jennings is right where Lovie wants him. 15 yards off the ball with enough time to react to any and all catches that will happen in front of him, no matter the down or distance. It’s lovie’s way or the highway, folks. If it can’t be stopped with the cover 2 than it simply can’t be stopped . Case closed.

  14. Capt. Tim Says:

    SILENCE, Tiny Dim

    As stated. After all your constant belly aching- The Capt wanted to see if it is possible to hack someones acvount- or if you were just a lying idiotic Troll.

    Now- The Capt has seen for himself
    It is possible to hack someones account.
    And Tiny Dim is a lying idiotic Troll.

    Glad to put that to bed!

  15. Capt. Tim Says:

    And while you can Hack someones account, Thats not what happened to Tiny Dim
    Hes a troll, trying to flip the script!

    At least Bucnut owned up to his comments

  16. "that guy" Says:

    ive said it before, and it eels good to have Mr. White confirm my analysis. jennings is a good corner for a tampa 2, and a good mentore for young players of that position coming into the leage.
