Four Sacks And A Looming MRI

November 14th, 2016

Spence talks hunger, injury.

No other rookie defensive end has more than the four sacks racked up by Bucs rookie Noah Spence.

Spence is producing despite a bad shoulder.

It’s not just Joe or Spence talking about his injury. Dirk Koetter acknowledged it before the Bucs-Atlanta game two weeks ago.

Yesterday, after Spence’s strip-sack of Jay Cutler in the Bucs’ blowout of the Bears, Joe asked Spence where he is with his shoulder.

“I mean, I feel it from time to time,” said Spence, struggling to explain how it’s a affecting him.

Spence he’ll address it further with “an MRI after the season. “I’ll see after that,” he said.

Major props to Spence for gutting through and working toward being an effective situational pass rusher.

Regarding the Bucs’ approach to the Bears game, Spence said his teammatees made a strong collective effort to put there foot down last week. “We’re not going to lose at home no more.”

    Great athlete, smart and plays with a fast motor. I watched Lenored Williams, Mcfee and others. Make no mistake J.W for the most was one demionsonal and shredded a good fast Defense that’s well coached. For the first time we were clicking on all Cylinders for the first time this year in Mike Smith’s Defense. We are getting healthy, was that a game that we are going to build on or just a great game we played???

  4. Jason Says:

    Would like to see him play more than just a situational player, hopefully that starts next year.

    He better not wait too long after the season for surgery if he needs it. Get it done and over with so he’s good for training camp.

    His best move, the rip, is his strongest. No doubt limited. I hope he can keep his development coming. Needs a little bulk but not much.

    Trey Flowers also has 4 sacks for NE, the 4th round pick that we gave them for a 2 year rental ( Logan Mankins).

  10. briandorry55 Says:

    Leonard Floyd has 5…but I guess he’s technically an OLB.

  11. Lord Corn Says:

    813 you made numerous 3-13 predictions. You said you’d take a bet on that but didn’t follow through.

    I’m down with this clown. Have a fun life trolling the Internet

  12. 813bucboi Says:

    @lord….get a grip man….im a die hard bucs fan….I just want to see us beat a quality opponent….pounding your chest because we beat the bears is like doing back flips because we beat the 49ers…..we beat a team that we were suppose to beat….now we dirk have this team prepared to play vs a quality team in kc?….will smitty and the defense prove they can play well vs a good team?….will we get blown out again?….will you and @realist make up more excuses?….time will tell….GO KAP GO MIKE DIRK=JIM TOMSULA….GO BUCS!!!!

  13. Lord Corn Says:

    Not pounding anything. Terrible interpretation of simply being called out for ur moronic trolling prediction

  14. Lord Corn Says:

    Oh and we weren’t supposed to beat the Bears according to oddsmakers that just saw them dominate a 5-1 Vikings team before their bye. But that doesn’t fit ur narrative

  15. 813bucboi Says:

    we beat the bears….enough said….don’t worry….dirk is still on pace to becoming the next JIM TOMSULA…..GO KAP GO MIKE….GO BUCS!!!

    Everybody needs to chill we still have a long way to go Improvement takes time We areb going to have to be patient. I still think Coach can get the job done. Give him a little time and less injuries.

  17. LovieBall Says:

    Playing through an injury and still beasting. Next year he is going to have over 10 sacks.

  18. Dave Says:

    All I know now is that sack strip he had…. he is damn fast. A couple moves over the next year and he is going to be a monster

    So Cancer93 has not infected him yet?
    Thank god.
    I imagine the conversation from ol’ Softie would go like this:

    “Man, if you be hurt, you need to stay out the game my brotha………let me get you an ice cream and then we can pray…….and of course still get paid.
