A “W” For The Offense

August 4th, 2017

Enough was enough

All the talk of the Buccaneers defense winning repeatedly against the offense was real through six days of training camp. But that changed today, and that’s not just the opinion of a reporter prowling the sidelines.

This likely was the best camp day for America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winson, Dirk Koetter said confidently after practice.

And it was rather obvious.

Speaking on WDAE-AM after the morning session, Gerald McCoy admitted the “offense definitely got the best of defense and called it “a really good day for the offense.” Competition has been great in camp, McCoy added and very healthy within the defensive line.

Kevin Pamphile had a different take on the offense’s victories today. They were pissed off. That was his sentiment, though he used nicer terms on the record.

“What we want to do as an offense every day is win the day. And we haven’t been doing it the first couple of practices,” Pamphile said. “We put it to ourselves that we had to dominate today and come out strong… and continue tomorrow.”

Tomorrow is the Bucs’ fourth consecutive day in pads. The grueling grind of training camp is in full swing. What a great timing for a pick-me-up by the rabid Stick Carriers who will be attending by the hundreds (thousands?).

    Completely normal for the defense to be ahead of the offense early in camp, in particular when you have a bunch of offensive changes like new key players, a couple of rookies, moving a guard to center, getting a guard in there that hasn’t played in a year, etc.

    Can we just skip pre season and avoid any possible injuries!

    Mike10 … still convinced it’s a double-edged sword. If you don’t practice balls-to-the-wall you’ll never know your true potential. If you do practice all-out, you run the risk of injuries as we’ve seen. Personally, I trust this coaching staff & team leaders to walk that fine line, fully recognizing that NFL football is a violent sport & that injuries happen.

  5. Shane Says:

    I’m sure the offense is keeping it pretty vanilla against the defense so the defense should be winning most of the time.

    Defense, agreed.

    I have little doubt that this coaching staff has the experience to waiver between too much and too little.

    I can’t stand the Dolphins, but seeing Tannehill go down yesterday just gave me cold sweats thinking what if..

    Time to start finding the magic on offense.

    We have the weapons – But it all starts up front.

    WDAE is dead to me until Ron Diaz apologizes.

    I haven’t listened to WDAE in a long time….in fact Ian was still on the air with Diaz. The ONLY reason I could tolerate that show was Ian. Diaz is an egomaniac a former morning rock star who read too many clippings from his early days.

    What has he done? Just curious as to why you feel he needs to apologize.
    I’m not surprised given his huge ego just curious about what he’s done now?
