VIDEO: Blitz Eats Up Sweezy; Jameis Completes Deep

August 3rd, 2017

Right guard J.R. Sweezy

If you read Joe’s detailed practice notes today, you saw a reference to America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, with a 20-yard completion to Mike Evans in 11-on-11 work this morning.

Not so fast.

That’s the nature of training camp action. It’s often deceiving because quarterbacks don’t get hit and defenders avoid them, but the film never lies.

Below you’ll see the completion by Jameis to Evans. Nice throw. But you’ll also see right guard J.R. Sweezy get eaten up by a linebacker blitz. In a real game, Jameis gets mauled here.

After watching all of training camp, Joe’s glad today the Bucs offense doesn’t have to face the Bucs defense on opening day.

    Was Sweezy any decent in pass blocking in his SEA days or just a run mauler?

  2. Defense Rules Says:

    Saw a report earlier today that Ryan Tannehill got injured yesterday (same knee as last year it said). In an article in the Miami Herald, turns out he apparently didn’t have surgery (ACL & MCL) on it then, but chose the stem cell approach instead. He did walk off the field without help, so most likely it was just precautionary.

  3. Joe Says:

    Mostly run

  4. Oj "I Got The Juice" Howard Says:

    Believe it or not I’m more excited to see the defense this season

  5. Baz Says:

    Per the Miami Herald, Tannehill is dealing with a hyperextension at minimum, and could have PCL damage. Also, the team hasn’t ruled out a torn ACL. The results of the MRI should be in this afternoon.

    While I don’t wish ill on anyone, Tannehill has always seemed like a pompous jackhole. A story even came out a couple of years ago of him making fun of the salaries of the players on the practice squad… really dude? Classy.

  6. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    ……..can’t really see the interior lineman from a side angle……hard to judge blocking assignments and gaps


  7. Lord Cornelius Says:

    I hope Tannehil is healthy so brent grimes can get a pick 6 for Miko

  8. tmaxcon Says:

    nothing would have been better than grimes snagging a pick from Tannehill but he’s done.

    never get’s old watching jameis against blitz

    Yeah I had to re-watch this like 5 times just to try and make sense of it lol

  10. Dano Says:

    Sneezy was known for being a run mauler in Seattle not for his pass protection. I’m still worried about Jameis getting hurt.

  11. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    We shouldn’t be shocked.
    Sweezy always played sub par in pass pro.
    He’s a converted college defensive lineman; for Pete stake.
    Where he excels is the running game.

    Sidebar: If he struggles too much in pass pro. I wonder how long it will take for Koetter/Licht to insert Caleb Benenoch.

  12. tnew Says:

    Sweezy blocks air in the video. But we don’t know the responsibilities here. The back could have been equally at fault here. Not sure who that was but there was a huge hole between the tackle and the guard. Not sure why the back didn’t favor that side. The back never even glanced that way.

  13. tnew Says:

    As a bonus.. watch what Marpet does with his man.

  14. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    For all you who swear you know about this man’s pas pro ability I dare you to watch his last season in Seattle against the Rams both games. He man handled donald in pass pro and basically makes they’re entire d line stop rushing when in front of him. I dare you to watch.

  15. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    I use them as an example because they suppose to be one the league best D lines.

  16. Locked In Says:

    I hope Tannehill is Ok. Backup QBs always seem to play like all-stars against us. Oh wait, that was the old Bucs!

  17. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Thanks nole, saved me some research. at least if he has problems it will be in #3’s line of sight. I think he will be ok.

  18. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Besides, we will be running the ball in the 2nd half with a 2td lead! lol

  19. 813bucboi Says:

    screw that….you think mia fans are saying they hope jameis is healthy and full go week1….I hope he’s banged up just enough to miss week1….did you see moore vs the steelers?….dude was seeing ghost….

    plus it will be a little easier to game plan for…if tannehill is out for week1, then you know they will try to stick to the run game…plus jay ajayi has a concussion….I hope we feast!!!!!!…GO BUCS!!!!

  20. James Walker Says:

    Hope Tanny gets better. I want to beat a 100% fins team.

  21. BucEmUp Says:

    @defense rules – I wish nothing bad on anyone…but if the dolphins lost tannehill, his backup Matt Moore is a damn good QB in my opinion. He hasn’t really been given the no.1 spot on any team and every chance he gets to play he performs well. I’ve never been a tannehill fan and if he was hurt it may be a blessing in disguise for Miami. It would probably be better for the Bucs week 1 chances if Matt Moore stayed on the bench. Miami is just too stupid to see it.

  22. Mo_Downs Says:

    Beware the wounded Dolphins. If they have nothing to lose, we have everything to lose.

  23. DEFF JEFF Says:

    seriously you’re showing and critquing plays from practice….LMAO!!
    you have no idea who’s responsible for who

    It’s like that time Evan Longoria fouled off a pitch during a batting practice

    I appreciate your enthusiasm but c’mon man…que Allen Iverson quote please
    Based on this logic, Joe shouldn’t even watch practice. C’mon.–Joe
