Sick Swaggy Anchors Injury List

September 21st, 2017

Kwon is sidelined

Dirk Koetter said today he wasn’t playing doctor, but there’s a documented case of “influenza” on the Bucs and that means the ill party is banned from One Buc Palace.

Only two players were listed on today’s injury report with “illness,” defensive tackle Chris Baker and defensive end Jacquies Smith. Both have not practiced the last two days.

Gerald McCoy (ankle) was back on the field on a “limited” basis today. Brent Grimes (shoulder) was again limited. Kwon Alexander hasn’t practiced all week as he nurses the bad hamstring he claims on Twitter is just fine.

Linebacker Devante Bond was back practicing at full strength, so it looks like he’ll make his 2017 debut in Minnesota.

    Hate to sit Kwon but that’s probably a wise decision long term. Besides, I like the way Beckwith hits people.

    These are times when you see how good you’re team is. Young guys, good luck to them both.

  3. HarlemBuc Says:

    @Tampabay… lmao good one dude. I’m definitely coming down with that one. Better start making some more noise on the stat sheet this week.

  4. Bill T Says:

    Idiots both of you. If DC runs up the middle for over 100, then call out Swaggy. Until then, button it. Games are won by points, not stats.

  5. BUCLUV55 Says:

    Bill T, you nailed it!

  6. NOSBOS Says:

    Wit a HUGE HAMMER.

  7. Lord Cornelius Says:

    lol this is the only fan base I’ve seen that obsesses so much over DT stats

    Anybody who thought when the bucs signed swaggy they were signing a sapp, john randle or mean joe are funny. Swaggy is taking up space on that line. I do know skins fans hated to see him leave. Lets be patient before we turn him into enemy number 1.

  9. Mike Johnson Says:

    Swaggy just gettin out of practice. But he will..perk up..come game time and do his job.

    Beautiful! A long list of really good post!
    From Bill T down, all spot on.
    Biff had a good point, too!

    All of his critics will learn the hard way. If Bsker doesnt play, Davin Cook will have a big day!
    McCoy is our only consistent pass rusher. They gotta send him every play. If the Nose tackle cant hold his pisition, thrn there is a gap.
    Baker held his spot very well last week/ just like Coach Koetter stated. And he would know better than anyone!

    Only site I can imagine, where you team holds a good running team TO 20 YARDS, and people act like the Nose tackle didnt have a great game.
    Even after the Coach praises himi

    Diagnosing these ailments from my air conditioned office far away from One Buc Place, I can say for sure that it’s not proprioception!

  12. DoNUTS Says:

    DT may be the hardest position on DEF to eval because so much of it goes unseen. The trenches are only known by those who dare to roam them. I gave Swagg a good grade; he was getting doubled at times and still pushed the pocket slightly. He does need to get in better playing shape and its no team secret; give it time. Look for him in stat line during week 4-6 as his reps will increase if he doesn’t get dinged. He has history with the G-skirts so splash time! I think Ayers and him have this game marked on their schedules and are planning to crush Eli. It could get ugly as their Oline is swiss cheese.

  13. BigMacAttack Says:

    Rest them all. The backups can handle it and the offense needs to carry the load. Think long term and take the time to put the injuries to bed.

    Ugh, sorry about all those spelling errors.

    Joe,.. am I allowed to comment here or not?…just asking…my comments don’t go thru…dont know what I did wrong, I always behave…sorry If I messed up, was unintentional…

    Shanahan and McVey seem like such better play callers than Dirk.

    Dirk needs to start calling better plays. Offense has been meh dating back to the middle of last year.

    Time to prove he’s one of those coaches capable of being a HC and calling plays. Not everybody can do it.

  19. Ptwalk Says:

    Some of yall need to get to know the sport better, before be you start criticizing.

  20. JameisDungy Says:

    Tell me what I don’t know?

    Is Dirk’s play calling not a bit stale? Are Shanahan and McVay not better play callers? They had very successful offenses last year at their previous spot.

    I’m not saying Dirk is a bad play caller. He was really good when he was just an OC. However, since becoming HC the offense has been average. Not all of that is Dirk’s fault. However, how many times can fans call up the first down run. How many times can we struggle in the red zone and not point it out?

    Also Pierre Garcon is balling. Lets hope Desean Jackson can get rolling..

  21. JameisDungy Says:

    Dirk’s offense since week 11 last year.

    21 (Lavonte David had a pick 6 to get it to 28)
    24 (against a HORRIBLE Saints defense)

    This year
    22 (int for a TD got us to 29)

    ITS TIME Dirk gets this offense calling. Way too much talent this year.

    Mike Smith and the defense has been carrying this team. Now that would be fine if this was a Lovie, or even Mike Smith HC’d team. This is a Dirk/Offense team.

    This offense needs to start rolling.

  22. Skipper Says:

    Jaquies Smith again on the injury list, what’s new?

  23. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Execution is the key to good offense.we could have easily had 14-21 extra points.
    The play calls to Sims on the wheel route and the throw to jackson in the end zone are good examples. There was also another throw in endzone to Evans that did not get completed.
    That said I would love to see more use of OJ and Godwin in this offense,As the
    season rolls, expecting more from these players.

  24. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Jameis supporter and all but he needs to be more consistent with the deep ball because it will be there all year and has been one of djax highlight plays throughout his career

  25. tnew Says:

    JameisDungy… What has our record been over that stretch?

    I’ll help, since that first game you mentioned, vs the Chiefs we are 6-2.

    At the end of last season, who was hurt? How limited was the play calling sheet?

    Charles Sims ended two Bucs drives last week and I question Koetter’s love for the young man fairly publicly. But as the head coach, he is first and foremost responsible for wins. I for one believe his play calling is different as a head coach, he is a bit more conservative, but thats not all bad.

    Bob, agree 100% on OJ80, its hard not to use him so much as a blocker, because he is so dominant at it. The challenge is when you make him a receiver, you take away from what might be his best strength. I swear you could put 30 pounds on him and he would be an all pro left tackle. If you could get 40 on him it would be no doubt.

    Godwin, played a sketchy game. He got his number called twice in the red zone. Both times he ran really poor routes. One he broke off, Winston had him continuing the route, the other, he got needlessly engaged with the DB, both times could’ve been TD’s, especially the second one. I am high on Godwin, but he can’t turtle like that. Both times he just looked lost.

  26. McBuc Says:

    Actually last weeks game had plenty of first down plays that went to the air. Also on plays on third and short when most teams hit the ground JW went for the long ball. Last year they had ME and CB, this year they have added more weapons. Last year is over, time to move on. Nitpicking the play calling in a blowout game after a hurricane and a long break is just sad.

    Not like they’d miss ‘Swaggy’.
