“He Most Obviously Dominated”

August 14th, 2017

You beloved Bucs practiced against the Jaguars in Jacksonville today.

Even though Lovie Smith was dead set against practicing against another team, it is a beneficial process.

As Dirk Koetter has said, simply the lack of predictability from the opponent is great work, as is the bonding of the team on the road at their downtown Jacksonville hotel.

Joe was not at practice today but will be there tomorrow.

Per Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com, who reviewed practice on his Buccaneers Insider show with Casey Phillips, offered his three “favorite things” out of today’s session.

*On the first play against the Jaguars, DeSean Jackson beat his man in 1-on-1 coverage and caught a bomb from America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston. The defensive back was beaten early, per Smith, and simply couldn’t close the gap in the sprint to catch Jackson on the route. Perfect pass by Jameis, as well.

*Noah Spence was impressive in 1-on-1 work against the Jaguars offensive linemen. “Of all the defensive linemen, he was most obviously dominated both of his snaps,” Smith said.

*Nick Folk was 5-of-6 in the field goal period, including one kick from beyond 50 yards.

Stick with Joe for more from today’s session.

    Not bad for a “rotational player” huh Joe!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That is good news.
    I think the Jags have a very strong roster, but their problem is their QB is horrible.

    Hell yea, Noah. Watch the play where he stopped the runner in the backfield from the other night. It was textbook speed rushing around the LT who didn’t have a frigging chance in the world of stopping him.

    Apparently Ryan Smith had a strong day as well as Beckwith. Both guys who struggle last week.

    “from the pic above , looks like our gm took some reps too”

    I wonder if he would be an improvement at RT??

  8. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Yea man Buc.com says Beckwith had two picks today.

    If Jags D can stay healthy, they have huge potential to be suffocating. Throw in the rookie RB from LSU and you might see glimpses of old Buc ball. Bortles is literally the modern day Dilfer. When your QB is also your opponent…..its tough. They have weapons at WRs and RB…..Bortles should be able to manage a game with that lineup. If he cant….he’s done in Jacksonville and his career will be nothing more then managing losing seasons for teams tanking for top picks.

    In other words he will be Josh McClown????^^^^^^^^^ LOL

    “When your QB is also your opponent…..its tough.”

    LOL – and don’t we all know it. Hell it was just over 2 1/2 years ago that we had plenty of that going on around here. About 35 year’s worth….

    How can Noah Spence not be our full time starter at DE??

  13. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    ^^^^^ run defense

  14. Kobe Faker Says:

    Spence is a Tweener

    “Mexicans are taking our jobs”…..first in tampa and now here in Chicago

    Connor Barth

    “Build that wall! He will shank it”

  15. NFLNut Says:

    The title says Spence “most obviously dominated” but the quote in the actual article says he was “most obviously dominated” which means Spence got dominated by the Jaguars OL, so which is it? I assume it’s the former which would be great news and that the quote in the article is a typo?

    WHOA, wait a minute!!! is that Tom Coughlin in SUNGLASSES? WTF????

  17. Buc Dat Says:

    Sounds good Buc Nation!!!

  18. USFBUC Says:

    Wausau and Bobby M – I agree with you both about the Jags. That team is setting up to be a good team if Bortles can get it together or if they can find a good QB. They are a great team for us to practice against.
