Bucs Must Beat Ex-Buc/Super Bowl Goat

October 9th, 2016

remmersThe Bucs should be salivating right now, just like Von Miller was in February.

Tampa Bay gets to face Mike Remmers, the Panthers’ right tackle who will be starting tomorrow night at left tackle when the Bucs face Carolina on Monday Night Football.

Remmers, at right tackle, single-handedly helped Miller win the Super Bowl MVP trophy.

With Michael Oher out against the Bucs, Remmers shifts over to protect the blind side of Derek Anderson, who is filling in for Cam Newton. Of course, the Bucs are hugely depleted at defensive end, with Robert Ayers and Noah Spence unlikely to play, and Jacquies Smith and sackless George Johnson out for the year.

But there’s got to be a way to exploit Remmers, right?

Remmers, 27, is an undrafted Greg Schiano man. He was on the Bucs’ practice squad in 2012 and 2013. Carolina made him a full-time starter on opening day last year, en route to the Super Bowl with a significantly re-tooled O-line.

Joe just can’t stomach the thought of the Bucs having a hard time exposing this guy at left tackle.

    This game will be won by the better offense. If that isn’t us then it is time to start tanking for the draft. Sad but true.
    I think Jameis throws for 4 TD’s tomorrow night. If he can’t do that on prolly the Worst secondary in Football then we have all been fooled

  2. Thibs5599 Says:

    Time for Howard Jones to step up and show some of that pass rush he had last year. Also Channing ward and lambert, 2 young Un drafted free agents that are hungry to make a name for themselves….tomorrow night is the time.

    All I know I this is going to be the best Sunday since week 1

    Joe, who is going to expose him? We have nobodys going up against NFL veterans. This d line is going to get completely dominated. Derek will have all day to throw.

  5. Seminole Bill Says:

    Once again, a mediocre player on the other team will have an all-pro game. I’m a die-hard Bucs fan who is tired of watching second and third-stringers come out and play like legends. If Coach Smith is reading, can we please, oh please, put some pressure on Derek Anderson?

    Blitz ! Early & often !

  7. Go for the face Says:

    Somewhat analogous to saying: “Wellllp, if Bill Gates can read/write code, then so can I!” I dunno – just because Von Miller can do things, it doesnt mean one of our anonomyous defensive ends can

  8. Doctor Stroud Says:

    I agree with Seminole Bill. Articles like this are bulletin board material for players on opposing teams. The minute that they are singled out, you can almost count on them looking like Pro Bowl/Hall of Famers/All World players against our team.

    At least from what I’ve read this week from some of the Carolina Panthers fan sites, they don’t do this. Cat Crave, what I might call the brother site of this one, rightly argues that the key match up will be the Bucs receivers v. the Panthers secondary. They expect the Panthers to win but the game to be “competitive”, but notice how they don’t give our players bulletin board material, unless you want to note that VJax is totally forgotten as a receiver who will “lead” the Bucs.

    “Rookie corner James Bradberry, who started all four games to this point will also be unavailable on Monday night. In his absence either rookies Daryl Worley, Zack Sanchez, or the veteran Robert McClain will be on the field. Receivers Evans and Adam Humphries lead the Buccaneers through the air and will be anticipating being able to stretch the field against whoever is lined up opposite them come game time.”

  9. BucTrooper Says:

    Look for Remmers to have a career day.

  10. Ghostofschiano Says:

    Howard Jones. Will Gholston. This is YOUR opportunity. This is YOUR chance. Step up. Must win? Hell yes.

  11. Fred E. Buc Says:

    Not to be a downer. I really hope the Bucs win. My lifelong fanship and $10K annual season ticket coast proves it. But the Bucs are a punching bag for every team ailing over the last five years to get well. And if it’s a nationally televised game, it’s always blowout fashion. ALWAYS. ONE exception was @MIN in 2012. 2000 FREAKING 12. Best motivator. The Falcons, whom the Bucs soundly beat today couldn’t even fill LB spots but beat the SB Champs today. Okay, so listen up Bucs–YOU HAVE NO EXCUSES WITH INJURIES. Let that burn in. C’mon man, let’s get to the Buy week 2-3 and nurse back to health. Go Bucs!

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Is there a Von Miller on the Bucs Joe?

    If no,t then who are you looking to get exposed? This guy or the lack of Bucs pass rush ALL SEASON LONG!!

    I could start tomorrow night at QB for the Panthers and probably not have a grass mark on me. I might not complete much, but I know I’ll have all MNF long to throw on the Bucs. All night!

    But I digress. I see the Bucs actually showing up tomorrow. Can’t see the win though. It’s foggy trying to see through another string of Bucs losses to start the season.

    We’ll be okay in this game. It won’t (can’t?) be a beat down. I think it will be a good watch for Bucs fans is all I can say for this one.

  13. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    If Remmers plays the same exact game that he did in the Super Bowl, Anderson won’t have a Buc within 5 yards of him for the whole game.

  14. LargoBuc Says:

    If our o line plays like they did the first three games we have a chance. Then it’s just a matter of how accurate will Jameis be.
    As for our pass rush, its just non existent. Its hard to get pressure when we are healthy, let alone with so many injuries. Mike Smith has a tough task tomorrow night.

  15. pick6 Says:

    which bucs should be salivating? Jacquies Smith, Robert Ayers, Noah Spence, Gerald McCoy, and Clinton McDonald are all too busy recovering from injury to salivate over an O line matchup, and the guys left behind will just be hoping the equipment guy spells their name right on the back of their jerseys
