Spence Strikes Fear In QBs

September 19th, 2017

Mind games.

What a difference the fear of an edge rush can make.

Now Joe has consistently written how he is harnessing himself from getting caught in the trap of Week 1 overreaction. And yes, Sunday was Week 1 for the Bucs.

The Bucs throttled the Bears. They should have. The Bears are terrible.

Remember the week prior when the Bears looked to have had the Dixie Chicks on the ropes to open the season? Well, a week later, the Dixie Chicks blew out the Packers showing why they are the defending NFC champs and the Bears came back down to earth and dropped a turd on the field of the Den of Depression.

“Gumby” Noah Spence had a sack that caused a fumble. My God, what an edge rush can do. But it goes further than that, said NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest.

In reviewing tape of the Bucs’ beatdown of the Bears, McGinest said Gumby and Gerald McCoy (who McGinest called a “Tonka toy”) were in Mike Glennon’s head and just hearing those guys breathe caused Glennon to attempt ill-advised throws, which led to both incompletions and more importantly, picks.

The full breakdown is below.

    C’mon Jac Smith – we need ya buddy.

    Spence, GMC, Ayers and Smith lined up on obvious passing downs is going to create all kinds of problems for Olines if we can ever get them all on the field together.

    It’s the Dawn of SPAWN.

  3. Drew Says:

    @Joe… they had to make the reference to Gumby. Now I’ll spend the rest of the season looking for Pokey on the field.

  4. NOSBOS Says:

    Joe the pack didn’t have any tackles and clearly don’t concern them selves wit a run game.

    Jaq coming back healthy and looking like his usual old self would be so freakin sweet with him and Spawn. But would you p-p-please tell me how my killa Kwon is doing. I am so freakin’ scared. It was the hamstring that kept him off the field at the end of OTAs and now it seems to have returned.

  9. DB55 Says:

    Gumby? Nah dawg spread the word his name is SPAWN. THEY TOOK EVERYTHING FROM HIM NOW HES BACK FOR REVENGE. That sounds a lot more badass than gumby. We only have one soft guy on the line and it ain’t SPAWN!

  13. bucsfan24 Says:

  14. pick6 Says:

    pass rush didn’t get home often because of the short dropbacks but the front four absolutely disrupted the passing game.

  15. NOSBOS Says:

    Make no mistake bros they gone become real familiar real fast with these names. No worries.

  16. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Spawn has returned from hell and is on a mission against Satan sacking QBs

  17. Casey Morgan Says:

  19. DB55 Says:

    Yes Nos it’s a insult if you ask me. Where is Howard Jones? Cut George Johnson and sign Jones.

  20. The Buc Realist Says:

    Hmmmmm and to think how down Joe was on NS57!!!! Good to see Joe see the light on a player that just makes consistent splash plays!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Lord Cornelius Says:

    What’s weird Realist is I don’t think many fans have ever been that down on him. I think most of us have just been happy and excited with his play since week 1 of last year

    I remember after the Bears Falcons game…which the Bears should have won if any WR could hang onto the ball…showed one of two things.

    Either the Falcons were disinterested in playing an inferior team…or they had an SB hangover after the choke. Well watching them pretty well manhandle a good GB team tells me there was no SB hangover and the Dixie Chicks were simply bored in Chicago and brought their “C” game. When they come to play Atlanta is stout and the biggest roadblock we face in trying to win the NFC South.

    Spawn is going to be great…and our rush is just beginning to hit it’s stride. We were set up to stop the run not rush the passer against Chicago. We didn’t do a ton of blitzing that I could see and when we did it appeared they were more of run blitzes to stop the Bears talented backfield before they could get started upfield.

    Let’s see how we do against Dalvin and Bradford.

    Yo Nos I got that P.O. Box number for ya.

  24. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Well Willie might have got LVD’s name mixed up,but he was spot on how the rush
    ofMcCoy contributed to the big play of McClain.

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    What does calling someone a “Tonka Toy” even mean? I had Tonka Toys as a kid, but I don’t get how that equates to how Spence played. That and Gumby are awful nicknames. What are good nicknames? Joe Dirt and Muscle Hamster.

  26. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    @Rod Munch

    Well first he was calling Gmc a Tonka toy. And I would assume its a way saying he’s a bulldozer or steam roller or any kind of industrial truck that are also made into toys for kids.

    As for “Gumby” which i agree is pretty lame, that originated from Mike Smith, after one practice session, Smitty was marveling at how flexable/ bendable Noah is. Which again I would assume is a reference to Noah’s ability to bend around the edge with as much speed and ferocity as he does.

    But yeah Spawn is just so much cooler.

  27. unbelievable Says:

    It is Spawn.

    The Stick Carriers easily make that name stick over Gumby.

  28. HowardCosell Says:

    Best Bucs DE since they let Michael Bennett walk for no good reason.

  29. Dooley Says:

    Gholston looked good too, maybe not against the pass but there’s definitely value in exploding offensive linemen, dude looked like MamBearPig

  30. Brandon Says:

    Why is McGinest the only one up there that doesn’t look like a stupid little kid up there in a suit and tie and deck/tennis shoes on?
