60-40 Split For “Slippery” Joey Bosa

December 3rd, 2016

BosaIn this post, Joe combines information delivered inside the Bucs locker room and a scouting report this morning by Dirk Koetter.

During Thursday’s award-winning Ira Kaufman Podcast, iconic Kaufman shared that Demar Dotson told him film study of dynamic rookie pass rusher Joey Bosa reveals he’s been bouncing 60-40 between rushing on the right side of the line and the left. Therefore, the Bucs will be keeping their eyes wide open.

With 4 1/2 sacks in six starts since settling his contract dispute, Bosa is versatile and the real deal.

“Bosa, you know, he’s unique. He’s long. He’s slippery at the line,” Koetter told SiriusXM NFL Radio today. “He wins right at the line where a lot of guys win deeper at the tackle set.”

The winning at the line stuff scares Joe a bit. Though they’re good pass blockers, Donovan Smith and Demar Dotson aren’t known for recovery speed.

Koetter also raved about how the Chargers are one of a few NFL teams that gets consistent pressure with a four-man rush, featuring sacks leader Melvin Ingram (6 sacks, 10.5 last year) off the edge opposite Bosa. The Chargers run superior pass rush games to free one of them up, Koetter said.

Not a stats guy, Koetter said Ingram and Bosa have combined for 27 QB hits. America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, leads NFL QBs in hits absorbed.

    Ingram is a linebacker. Melvin Gordon is their RB

    Next week the RB is Ingram (Mark).

    Last time Donovan Smith went against Joey Bosa, he beat him for 3 quarters in Penn State vs Ohio State 2014 (see the Youtube video) – actually pancaked Bosa on the 2nd play on film.

    Smith got hurt late in the 3rd quarter and left the game with Penn State owning a 14 point lead. OSU came back in the 2OT to win the game.

    This Sunday I don’t know who will win, but Donovan is not “scurred” of Bosa, that’s for sure! Lol.

    My prediction:
    Rodgers and Martin show on offnse and it’s time for Hargreaves to get a iNT.

  8. Dewey Selmon Says:

    I’ll take Spawn over Bosa in pass passing thank you very much!

  9. Dewey Selmon Says:

    rushing! dudes. pass rushing!

    No worries about JW being hit so much. JW leaves it all on the field for his team. He is willing to take that extra hit if it can yield a positive result. More than a few of our bigger plays have resulted because JW extended the play and found a receiver late. Many of those hits are because of this factor and not because the O Line failed.

    J. Banks cut by the Lions and they out M. James on the practice squad. Wonder what’s up with Banks?

    Pawel I’m really excited about new two headed monster in DM and Rodgers. As far as VH3 is concerned,people must be studying his film and deciding not to make it they’re business to challenge him. I haven’t noticed anyone targeting him lately.

  13. Lunchbox Says:

    Don’t forget, Winston is the most dangerous QB when he’s chased out of the pocket extending plays. Not saying Bosa and Ingram won’t get some hurries and maybe even a couple sacks, but Jameis will make his plays too. But key for us I think will be a steady ball-control offense that keeps Rivers and his offense off the field. Honestly not worried about this matchup as long as we keep up the intensity we’ve been playing with the last few weeks.

  14. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    LOL, I guarantee you that Donovan Smith will be reminding Bosa that Penn State beat Ohio State this year.

    Bet you we could have drafted him and Spencer’s if we wanted to but instead we got a kicker 😑

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    Unlike Trump’s fake swamp draining, the Bucs must really drain the Chargers.
