Rare Look At A Highly Contested Catch

September 11th, 2019

Lost in the sloppy, sloppy Bucs-49ers game on Sunday was a heck of a catch, and a unique camera look provides the average Joes from Clearwater Beach to downtown Lakeland a tremendous look.

Joe’s got the video below. It appears at the 2:15 mark of a Mic’d Up feature on Chris Godwin.

Players and coaches talk all the time about contested catches. Well, Richard Sherman covering on Godwin’s 10-yard TD grab certainly qualifies as contested. It was a tremendous throw by Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, and an even better catch.

Joe has watched Godwin work tirelessly at these types of catches. It’s what’s made him a No. 1-caliber receiver in the NFL.

Below this new video is a shot Joe took at training camp in 2017, after watching Godwin and Todd Monken work on this day after day.

    I like those videos. That was a great catch. Wonder why we can’t get more of that.

    Godwin is as professional as one could be. He is the Anti-diva. Love that guy!

  3. BigHog Says:

    I don’t like saying it but this guy is slowly becoming…dang I don’t like saying this…slowly becoming FAMOUS’S FAVORITE TARGET!! All receivers need to steep up tomorrow nite!! POUND THE ROCK! BUCS WIN BUCS WIN!!!

    Ungodly Godwin,,,,,slowly and quietly becoming a superstar and justly so. He’s a class act on and off the field. Godwin personifies the reason that in spite of all the corruption, I still follow the Bucs/NFL football.

    Evans is no diva either neither are Brate or OJ…..we’ve done a good job of building a very talented WR corps of solid citizens.

    “My Dad and I

    Went over the 2018 3-13 Arizona games led by offensive Coord My Leftfoot

    We looked at each other and shook our heads

    Same identical damn pass routes and playcalling

    49ers, playing Leftfoot twice last year knew exactly what he was going to do

    No separation, No open recievers, 5/7 step drops, no rhythm and consistency, no rollouts or moving the pocket, no quick routes putting pressure and sacks by the off line

    Jameis couldnt throw downfield because the recievers are covered and the sheep wants him to throw the checkdown when the pocket is caved in?

    My Leftfoot is terrible and his calls and scheme is destined for failure”

    Now that’s a good article Joe. Love the videos.

    Just saw on NFL network that the Bucs power rankings dropped from 29 to 31 just barely in front of the Dolphins. Brings up a thought: will he Jags/Bucs/Fins combine for 10 wins this season?
    ****this just in: Kay Adams stated that she was under the influence when she stated “don’t sleep on JW”. She meant to say don’t fall asleep next to him.

  9. Hodad Says:

    Yes it was Jameis’s best throw, and for a TD. Notice he was on the run, and outside the pocket. With the poor play of both our tackles, maybe we should be running more counters, and roll outs where Jameis seems to be at his best. This new staff was supposed to put players in a better position to win. Jameis in the pocket on 5, and 7 step drops with this O line is not putting him in a winning position. More like digging his grave.

    Would you please post the video of the pass to Barber (Sherman).


  11. jjbucfan Says:

    ^^agree show this^^ that way you can see that Barber was supposed to turn outside, not inside as HIS COACH Bruce Arians said, hot read always turns outside he said.

  12. Brandon Says:

    Kobe’s son is dumber than Kobe. Who let this idiot reproduce? BTW, I knew he was full of crap when he claimed he’d leave. He’s never gone, he’s JoeBucsFan’s version of herpes, you think he’s gone but keeps flaring up when you’re not expecting it.

  13. BringBucsBack Says:

    It appears that Sherman has retained the Seahawks’ philosophy of “hold them every play, they won’t call it EVERY time”. He holds on every single play. The approach works, they didn’t call him on every single play. Scoreboard.

  14. tickrdr Says:


    I thought Arians said that ME13 was the “hot” read on that play.
    Barber ran to the 31 yard line and turned inward to his left. If, indeed, he was three yards “TOO DEEP”, and should have been at the 28 yd line, then WHY did Sherman catch the ball flat-footed at the 33 yard line?

    Godwin is a treasure— hard-working, tough, smart. He’s developing into one hell of a player.
