Kwon Is Still Making Defensive Calls

Kwon is always on

Kwon is always on

Joe sure hopes the Rams did not bug Kwon Alexander’s couch on Sunday.

The Bucs’ rookie middle linebacker started serving a four-game NFL suspension for an ingesting an energy drink that had too much, um, energy in it.

Alexander can’t have official communication with the Buccaneers but can talk to players. He also can stay fresh and mentally ready.

Speaking on the Ronnie and TKras show today, Alexander explained that while watching the game from his couch, he was shouting out the defensive calls to stay fresh — over and over screaming them out.

Pretty cool.

Alexander also said he’s agonizing to play again but was impressed by what Bruce Carter delivered in his absence.

    Better be glad they aren’t playing against Bill Belichek this week he would have had the couch bugged, the phones taped and a video recording any hand signals he may have been doing while watching the game.

    Didn’t Belicheat videotape Bucs back when Dungy was coaching? Good thing old Kraft has got his cheatin’ back covered. Kwon is going to be a monster next season. Go Bucs–Champs in 2016!!

    I wonder if Josh Freeman is still calling plays?

    Perhaps Shaun King could join Kwon & call the offense… Kwon would win.

    “Shaun King, one of two Buc Quarterbacks that lost a NFC Championship Game when his defense gave up 9 points.”

    I called a play from the north end zone last week. I said ASJ is open. Actually, he was being covered one on one with Browner. Jameis completed an easy pass. We got the same look often during the game since they were stacking against the run. I wonder why we didn’t try to exploit the mismatch again.

  5. The Buc Realist Says:

    Instead of making calls, I wish he was handing out “energy drinks” , Then there would have been more sacks and Int’s!!!!!! come on Kwon, put on a disguise and mix the gatoraid up!!!!!

    Brees picked our secondary apart on sunday. It was pretty painful to watch. He didnt all out torch us but you just knew when he threw the ball someone would be open. Zero pass rush all day….wish they would have threw some blitzes in during the first quarter and before we were down 14- 0. When they start off with a lead its great….but it always seems like it takes being down by 2 tds at the minimum until the staff decides to make some in game adjustments. Thought thise blitzes srarted coming a little late. Vjax getting hurt didnt help the game either

    Ya I think most teams have exposed the Saints defense (Browner mainly) but the Bucs failed to pounce on it.

    That’s a nice story to read. I’m sure he’s not the first person that’s ever had that kind of approach, but it’s good to see him have that level of passion, that commitment to his craft and that sort of desire to keep his game fresh. I can’t help but think that the example that his fellow rookie QB and LVD have set for him have put him on a good path to come back to training camp ready to set the league on fire.
