Another “Cheap Shot” By Akeem Spence

November 15th, 2015

akeem spence 0827Interesting video has emerged from New Jersey on Akeem Spence.

Bucs fans remember how Spence had a truly moronic roughness foul late in the Giants-Bucs game last week that gifted the Giants a first-down on their closing drive. A Giants punt was forthcoming on fourth down with the Bucs trailing by only five points, but Spence’s selfishness wiped that out.

However, that wasn’t the only time Spence lost his cool. Former Giants four-time Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee was part of a video breakdown of the Giants’ O-line play in that game, and he noted what he calls an ugly “cheap shot” by Spence. It’s all in the video below. You might have to rewind the play at least a few times.

Giants lineman Weston Richburg sees Spence’s cheap hit and jumps in to drill Spence. You’ll then see Kwon Alexander throw a shot to the face on Richburg. Officials’ flags were not flying.

It’s over, but the play highlights the lack of discipline on the Bucs, who are on pace to set a new NFL record for penalties in a season.

(Also, Snee isolates how Gerald McCoy is the focus of any O-line because of his greatness.)

Enjoy the video below.

    love the talk from opposing teams with evidence of gerald mccoy being double teamed and game-planned for.

    Lovie Smith will be the coach of the Browns next season if fired!

    McCoy being great is a laugher …this is player talk that is all

  5. Newbucsfan Says:

    I think Tampa better recognize what kind of coach they have in coach smith. Don’t be fooled by certain people in Tampa, national media know what the real is. You can have Koetter as your next HC(the one who called terrible games at the start of the season until Lovie reigned him in). BE CAREFUL what you wish for.

    So he gets mad at spence for crossing the line but later he says that when he does it, its just trying to win? What a hypocrite. Hate those giants since the kneel down game.

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We should have one big giant fight with the Cowgirls and get it out of our system…..then play clean and beat them.

  8. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I didn’t see a thing wrong there.

  9. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    The play was still active. Right? Until that whistle blows, they keep playing. Spence was doing his job so far as I could tell.

    Other than getting caught at a big moment… This is the “nasty” we are all wanting is it not??? So I think Lovie and JW played the old good cop bad cop with him… Lovie only jumped in his grill because it was bad timing for something like this…. Then JW told him I love the fight just choose your battle s wisely…. Over all I have no problem with these kind of penalties because it sends a message far beyond the one play or game….

    I can remember #99 getting all kinds of silly penalties. The only difference is he would turn around and get a sack or turn over or tackle for a loss…. Here’s to being on the right track with the D

    I smell a shut out coming!!!! Hope its today

    I thought the play was still going? Either way, it was a shove from behind. Not hitting someone in the knee with a skillet.

    Are you commenting on the right thread? You’retalking about Lovie getting fired and this post was about a “dirty” play from Spence.
