Finger Pointed At Bucs Tackles

November 3rd, 2016

demar dotson 1216For the second consecutive season, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, is the most hit QB in the NFL.

A former stud NFL offensive linemen is pointing fingers.

With Tampa Bay playing tonight on Thursday Night Football, NFL Network is filled with Bucs chatter. One of those talking was former Browns and Giants center Shaun O’Hara, a three-time Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl champion.

You can see the video here.

O’Hara called out Bucs tackles Donovan Smith and Demar Dotson for allowing too many hurries. And don’t go calling O’Hara a Bucs basher. He’s quite level-headed and Joe’s talked to him privately on a couple of occasions.

Joe believes those hits on Jameis are very much on Jameis’ decisions and the playcaller, Dirk Koetter. Of course, the O-line gets its share of blame.

Perhaps all the hits finally have gotten to Jameis’ head and affected his accuracy?

    Its hard to throw when you ribs hurt!!!!!!!

    NFL 2017 Bucs Draft, Wr, TE and safety!!!!!

  2. tmaxcon Says:

    Joe it’d be a lot easier for Jameis to make better decsions if he had better choices…. I like D. Smith and think he can be a great lineman in tampa but NOT at LT… Dotson is just a pathetic excuse for a football player and a walking penalty machine. never should have been extended.

  3. The Buc Realist Says:

    Wr and then TE. then consistent running game, and then pass blocking are more pressing concerns than the QB right now!!!!!!

  4. unbelievable Says:

    Did anyone notice Winston’s play went significantly down after he took that hit in the head trying to run for the touchdown?

    Concussion? Just saying…

  5. grafikdetail Says:

    someone on either ESPN or NFL Network noted that the play calling was not helping winston or the line when almost every pass play is a 5 or 7 step drop… almost zero 3 step drop or quick developing plays

  6. Defense Rules Says:

    Shaun O’Hara hit our problem exactly on the head: our OLine, particularly our 2 tackles, are marginal at best. Agree with tmaxcon that Donovan Smith would be better suited at either RT or G for right now (not sure). Dotson is just getting beat time and time again, and getting Jameis rushed or killed in the process. Bucs have TONS of needs, but filling some of those is going to have to come through free agency. Finding 3 draft picks to start is quite unusual it seems, and we’ve got a LOT more holes than that. Time for Jason Licht to find some quality players or move on.

    I believe the condition you are referring to that might be effecting Jameis, is referred to as “DCS.” David Carr Syndrome in NFL circles. Anyone want to bet what THE most single and repeated piece of advice older bro Dave gave to younger bro Derek??? Pretty sure it concerned not holding onto the ball…

    Joe you’re a funny guy. “Perhaps” as he limps to the sideline.

  9. cmurda Says:

    The video was okay and there wasn’t anything to disagree with but then again, there really was no insight there.

  10. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    I’d fix the line first, before anything else. He was inaccurate to start the season, if you recall, before any of the big hits although I’m sure they don’t help. We need about 6-7 new guys on offense to really be competitive we can get most of them in the spring so we should be n good shape a year from now.

  11. evolvingBucfan Says:

    any who, Looking forward to honoring John Lynch tonight!!!

  12. cmurda Says:

    In order to get rid of the ball quickly, one must have receivers be open. Otherwise, we will find ourselves with pick 6’s happening. The receiving core needed a boost. Most fans, including Joe, were clamoring for this since the offseason and before the draft. It seemed to make sense to kick the tires on Rowdy Roddy White but somebody should have been brought in. I won’t even mention trading up to the 2nd rd to draft a kicker. Oh wait, look at that. I did mention it.

    JW holds on to the ball WAYYYYY too long.

  14. 813bucboi Says:

    hits can take an affect on the qb no doubt….but jameis has been missing targets since week2….its not like he’s rg3 or Russell Wilson…he’s not a smaller qb…he’s a pretty big guy….bottom line is everyone is the organization has a hand in the blame….dirk, smitty, licht, the glazers, GMC, LVD, Jameis, the medical staff…EVERYONE….GO BUCS!!!!

  15. Warrenfb12 Says:

    IMO Dotson has been getting worked lately. The flags on both of them have been bad too.

  16. duthsty rhothdes Says:

    Well maybe jason licht gets a 10 yr stud OT instead of VH3….licht is the probkem

  17. Bucsfanman Says:

    You can NEVER have enough competent offensive linemen, ever! That said, it’s a fair statement to say that we need improvement at EVERY position.

  18. Kobe Faker Says:

    Tampa Bay Bucs are the Jacksonville Jaguars without the talent

  19. Chris Says:

    I rewatched the game. Smith at times, I mean just beaten like a drum around the edge. Sloppy footwork, I will take back some of my criticism of Jameis. But…. the bomb to Evansbin triple coverage, a guy ope around the fifty. We need him to go through his progressions and make the right reads when he does have time.

  20. evolvingBucfan Says:

    who wants to smile??

    had to post it in case some one hasnt see it

  21. evolvingBucfan Says:

    Honoring John Lynch

  22. duthsty rhothdes Says:

    Licht and bucs had chance past 3 years to build a dominant OL and licht swung and sucked at drafting and at the FA market… 2 years ago he could have had Lael Collins and also Tre Jackson then this year you have Laremy Tunsil staring at you and licht drafts VH3, a non need right now, build inside out, licht builds from K to out of tampa hopefully

  23. LakeLandBuc Says:

    I said they should have drafted Laremy Tunsil.

  24. JimBuc2 Says:

    Lots of complaints here about our O line. Justified, I’d say. So, why is Dot getting the reps when UCLA road grader Caleb Bennock is available? Just sayin’… Dot costs us at least 2 holds a game, always at the worst possible time. Last I heard C. had a calf strain. In training camp. Let’s see what this dude can do.

  25. James Walker Says:

    I wonder if Marcus Maye will be on the board when the Bucs pick in round 2?
