Tim Jennings Deactivated

October 25th, 2015

tim jenningsWhoa!

Is Lovie Smith sending a message to starting cornerback Tim Jennings and the rest of the Buccaneers?

The Bucs released their inactive list for today’s game and Jennings was a surprise inclusion.

QB Ryan Griffin
CB Tim Jennings
S Keith Tandy
DT Tony McDaniel
T Reid Fragel
TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins
WR Russell Shepard

As Joe noted with video evidence right after the Jacksonville game, Jennings clearly loafed on the field, giving up on a key play.

Joe will update as more information is available.

    I can’t believe it. The play by TJ was so poor that even Lovie could not overlook ” His Guy ” while wearing the deepest shade rose glasses.

  2. MadMax Says:

    Go to bed Tim!

  3. Warren Says:

    Are Tandy and McDaniel injured? Sucks we don’t get ASJ back yet

  4. Buc1987 Says:

    Where are you Jenning’s lovers at now? Peeps were in here defending this guy over the last 2 weeks telling us what a stud he actually is and we were the idiots….

    Please come in here and tell us again how dumb we were and we just don’t know how good Jenning’s really is, because we don’t know football and all that jazz.

  5. The Buc Realist Says:

    But who will commit all the Pass Interference every other play now????

  6. Bucnut2 Says:

    I am glad TJ is deactivated. I want to see the rookie number 38. Can remember how to spell the name.

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Realist someone will make up for that with a few hands to face or encroachments.

  9. John McKillop Says:

    @Buc1987 LoL, agree with you, I said two weeks ago that Jennings is barely back up quality at this point of his career. He has been awful, I think the only reason he ended up here is because Lovie is the only one to offer him a chance.

  10. MadMax Says:

    Get em 87! Truth!

  11. Dave Says:

    This mean Banks is good enough to start today? And keep Verner at nickel. That’d be outstanding.

  12. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wait. If Banks or Verner are in hot water, how can they be starting?

    Seems some false assumptions were made by certain people.


    I believe that is the word I’ve been using.

  13. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Although…I wouldn’t have started Banks this week. I would have eased him in throughout the game…just to test his health and see if his head is ready after time off.

  14. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Here’s a question…what if Banks injury re-asserts itself? Who will step in?

  15. JAB83 Says:

    Good move by Lovie… Clearly Timmy needed a wake up call… Regardless of his poor performances his career has been a noble one and he could be an asset heading down the stretch… Assuming he gets he head out of his…. Yeah, good call coach, if this don’t wake him up and get him back on track next time out time to make a trade and get us a some competitive help…

    Great timing for this to happen!!!

  16. JAB83 Says:

    Oh and just for fun…. FYI Marcus M is out do to injury… Good call on the draft to coach!!!!

  17. JAB83 Says:

    Nice Fox interview with Ronde and JW… The cult hero spell is taking full effect!!!! Terry B has converted!!!!

  18. Capt. Tim Says:

    It probably says, That former pro bowler Tim Jennings was hurried into this defense, without adequate time to learn the different terminology, or to adjust to the Florida Climate. Which aint easy.

    Meybe hes just forgot how to play.
    Ussually, a goid players doesnt just suddenly Suck
    My guess, Lovie told him to say in Tampa, study the terminolgy differences, and aclimate by running some wind sprints on the beach.

    If he is as good as he used to be(recently!), we need him.
    Instead of just hating the guy, lets give him the benefit of the doubt.

    After all- he didnt injure Banks- then rush here and jump in the starting line up
    It was a move of desperation. And not Jennings

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This just could be a move to give Jenkins more snaps….

  20. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    I have only defended Jenkins from Joe!

  21. John Ensch Says:

    I’m tired of seeing this defense lose games for us. The defense blew another one. Thanks Lovie great job.

  22. gg720 Says:

    Please deactivate Lovie and then this team has a chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Jenkins Sucks Says:

    Jennings and Jenkins are turds. They both need to go flip burgers. Get rid of them and find some guys on a practice squad that actually want to work.
