“I’m Pretty Successful Against Jay Cutler”

September 4th, 2017

Recounts history vs. Dolphins QB.

Earlier today, winning Bucs coach Dirk Koetter was non-committal when discussing what exact role new safety T.J. Ward would play against the Dolphins to open the season.

If the Bucs open the season against the Dolphins.

When the King of New Port Richey, the Custodian of Canton, prized JoeBucsFan.com columnist and Hall of Fame selector eye-RAH! Kaufman, asked Ward about his history facing bratty Jay Cutler, now quarterbacking the Dolphins, Ward’s face lit up.

“I’m pretty successful against Jay Cutler,” Ward said. “I win about every time. It is true though, even in Cleveland. , beat him every time. I expect to beat him here.”

Ward’s first statement is true. He did beat Cutler about every time. “About” being the keyword.

In Ward vs. Cutler (Browns/Broncos vs. the Bears), Ward is 1-1.

In a 38-31 Browns loss to the Bears and Cutler in 2013, Ward actually had a fumble return for a touchdown. Two years later playing for the Broncos against the Bears and Cutler, a 17-15 Denver win, Ward had an OK game with five tackles. He has yet to pick Cutler.

Joe hopes Ward — if he plays Sunday — finally breaks his interception drought against Cutler.

    Hopefully our DL & LB’s will sack his azz ’till he can stand up and walk off the field …keep it in front of you TJ…

    If we can’t beat Cutler we have many issues!

    I think if we come out slow…Cutler could be dangerous. He’s a streaky player that we need to rattle his confidence and timing early. Ball control on our side would also help but Jameis will need to be in rhythm. Generally that’s not his style but he did look efficient in the preseason

  8. Cobraboy Says:

    I really like this new guy. He makes a strong trio at safety, some good depth there.

  9. NOSBOS Says:

    Two comments stood out to me #1 “I’m a starter i expect to start. #2 what Mike Smith does is similar to what wade phillips does in denver. Oh and let me add #3 my hamstring feels fine. I expect to see him on the field first defensive snap.

    Well Mr.Ward, welcome to Tampa, where we see cover two every down and are not allowed to breathe on the receivers until afyer they catch the ball. Its a tampa tradittion and a sin to even think of playing any other way. You and the other safties will recieve all blame for every slant route completion although the offense knows we run it every play and pick.it apart. BEST OF LUCK BUDDY!!!

    His presser was really good. One of my favorite dude’s on the team just based on that.

    He tears up with what I think is tears of joy when he starts talking about why he is hear and the guys he will be playing with and against.


    If those guys lock down the back end of our D the DL will feast all year long… In fact Im calling it now… We are gonna have TWO 10 sack guys and 2 of 3 others knocking on the door… KA will when Defensive Player of the year with GMC hot on his heals….

  12. JAB83 Says:

    *2 or 3…………. KA will “WIN” DPOTY….

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    BucEmUp…cover 2 every down? Wtf are you talking about?

  14. Kstoges Says:

    I was just in another article saying it JAB83 our defense came into its own end of last year and they were pretty damn good adding a guy like this who is really freaking good and watch highlights he’s not dirty but he talks smack and gets in players heard he’s literally perfect for purchase secondary and team he puts our defense almost over the top I say almost Bc one more D end would put us really over but regardless you guy are going to love TJ he’s a complete monster one of the best in the business really is im hyped as hell

    You better know it baby hit man 43 welcome 🏡 it’s all about making them walk that plank whenever and or wherever we ain’t takin no shawts

    We need to blitz all season.

    Send Kwon or LVD on every 3rd down.

    They are BULLETS.

    So, now lets destroy some QB’s!

    QB’s are normally scared souls, that’s why sacking them sucks their spirit!

    Hit em up! All day!

    Lets knock Cutler’s spoiled, Vandy, frat boy a$$ out the game!
