Will Miller Time Equal Jameis Time?

October 8th, 2015

roy miller 0930-pngOne of the great unspoken mysteries of the 11-win Greg Schiano regime could come back to haunt the Bucs on Sunday.

Joe’s talking about Schiano saying he really wanted defensive tackle Roy Miller to return in 2013, after the Bucs sported the NFL’s No. 1-ranked run defense. But Schiano was denied by a more powerful force. (Joe recommends the link. It’s a neat piece of Bucs history. Believe what you wish. It’s a mystery. Perhaps the answer lies in whoever kicked Michael Bennett out the door at the same time.)

Miller made his way to Jacksonville in 2013 free agency. Not only did Miller sign a two-year contract, he inked a second deal with Jacksonville in December, a four-year, $16 million payday.

They love Miller in Jags country. And at 28 years old, Miller, a third-round pick of former Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik in 2009, is a key cog in the Jaguars’ stout run defense.

That’s a huge key on Sunday, as the Jaguars have the NFL’s fourth-ranked run defense. And the Bucs are relying heavily on pounding the rock with Doug Martin.

It sure smells like Jaguars head coach and defensive guru Gus Bradley will make Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, beat him through the air, especially after Jameis played so ugly last Sunday.

    So far the past 2 seasons have made me long for the MRSA-riddled Schiano era.

    Does anybody else go back and read the comments of the link Joe refers to in the articles? It’s painful to see how wrong most of us were. Look at poor Bobby’s comment (2nd comment)

    Most of the time when Dom makes these moves we end up with an upgrade. I think Spence will be better than Miller. Foster is an upgrade over Ruud and Martin is certainly an upgrade over Cadillac. Dom has a knack for knowing when the wheels are about to fall off of a players career. He has, however, been snake bit with players he drafts getting injured.

    The only accurate point and it’s debatable is Martin. It’s not your fault Bobby. I probably would have said the same thing back on August 26, 2013.

    It’s funny you said that, because I went back and read the comments too. On certain articles I’m scared to look because there’s no telling how wrong I might have been, lol.
