Comfy Kyle

October 13th, 2019

Gerald McCoy recorded four official quarterback hits today, the same total as the entire Buccaneers roster.

That’s not the way to beat a backup quarterback.

Comfortable Kyle Allen had no big worries today dropping back for the Panthers, outside of drops by his receivers and two Bucs sacks — one for Carl Nassib and a half each for Ndamukong Suh and Vita Vea.

It’s a little stunning how well the Bucs stuff the run but just cannot generate pressure without Shaq Barrett heroics that were missing for the second consecutive game.

Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is all about blitzing but they just don’t get home often enough. And either he can’t adjust or just doesn’t have the horses, or offensive coordinators have caught up to Bowles. Allen, an undrafted backup, was a cool and composed 20-of-32 for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

Again, he’s a backup.

Marcus Mariota and the typically anemic Titans offense is next in two week.

    More Licht misses and issues. Look at all his draft misses, and look at the fact this franchise refuses to address pass rusher. They got luck with Shaq for 4 weeks, and they traded for JPP. Other then that, where oh where are the sacks?

    We su¢k. Also a big thanks to Ira Kaufman for jinxing us again

    If only.

    I guess Winston practicing throwing balls from his back with 3 defenders on him still didn’t pay off this week. Keep practicing Jaboo surely there’s a way to win games and throw TDs from your back, knees and a pocket that stays clean for .02 seconds. Go visit Wilson and see how it’s done.

    It’s called a game plan, the young QB is given quick reads and throws, he sees man coverage and knows where the ball is going, no second guessing, no dancing around behind the line, passes are out on time. If this all seems like a foreign language, it’s ok you’re a Bucs fan and haven’t seen it in a long time.

  5. Petty Officer Buc Says:

    We’re back to the Greg Schiano defense of 2012. Best Run defense and worst pass defense. Of course in a passing leauge, the other team will take the easy passing yards any day of the week.

    GMC was in our house today and quite often. We blitz because our Defensive front 4 is not that good. And good teams have answers for all out blitzes. I said Licht should have left with Koetter. We don’t just suck..we stink.

    No pressure….

    But blame the DBs….lol..

    The defense played well enough to win today. It’s tough when you’re offense keeps turning it over. I rewatched everyone of Jameis’ sacks and feel like he holds the ball too long.

    1st sack -> Marpet got beat

    2nd sack -> On 2nd and 17 right after the Marpet sack, had a clean pocket early but looked like a play with long developing routes that didn’t come open before the pressure got there.

    3rd sack -> Had a clean pocket took too long to make a decision and get it out

    4th sack -> Had a CB blitz coming off the right side as a free blitzer didn’t read it quick enough and get the ball out

    After 4th sack Carolina brought pressure on an obvious passing situation and hit his arm leading to the 2nd INT.

  9. Waterboy Says:

    I stopped paying attention during the last 3 sacks but based on what I see Winston isn’t decisive and takes too long to find his hot routes when pressured.

    No o-line.

    No d-line.

    No secondary.

    No run game.

    Wildly inconsistent QB.

    Sounds like a recipe for success!

  11. DBS Says:

    Draft talk 2020 has begun . And who is in charge? Why the man who said he would only coach the Brown’s. And the talant here was fine.Lapdog will not be in charge.

  12. DB55 Says:

    I saw Winston hit oj on a hot route and he couldn’t even catch the pass. I don’t think you guys know what you’re seeing or talking about. Regardless doesn’t even matter.

  13. Waterboy Says:

    Yep OJ did drop a 3rd down attempting to make a 1 handed catch that he should have had. I don’t remember what the score was at that time but they were already in a hole from at least 3 turnovers by that point.

  14. BUCLUV55 Says:

    Oj couldn’t catch it because it was behind him. Bad placement on a hot throw.

  15. Coburn Says:

    Well wasn’t able t catch it but I thought on highlights it looks like some heat was coming… just got rid of it quick. Such a contrast to Winston where I was constantly shouting get rid of the damn ball fool.

  16. DB55 Says:

    NFL caliber receivers! the ball doesn’t have to be perfect everytime! If it hits your hands you need to make the play!

    See Allen’s TD pass to Curtis Samuel, almost intercepted but the RECEIVER made a play to come down with the TD.

    Why is that so hard for some of you to understand?

  17. Capt. Tim Says:

    Glad next week is a bye week!
    Bucs dont get to depress and embarrass me next Sunday!

  18. Fire Goodell Says:

    Daniel Jones threw 3 picks against the Pats Thursday night.

    No surprise that Belicheat can figure out rookie/backup QBs but we cannot.

  19. Colorado Says:

    Say it with me-


  20. Bejesus belt Says:

    Unfortunately Jameis is the 6th best quarterback in the nfc south. So this year we will not draft a pass rusher because we will need to draft a quarterback. Here we go again.

  21. TeethingBrat Says:

    Lol!Maybe If people buy more season tickets and if more people show up to the games it will help change the culture. LMFAO!!!!

  22. Rob Tanner Says:

    Marcus Mariota Got benched today, so wrong on your last sentence.

  23. Ed Says:

    Indecisive is the best description of the QB of the Bucs. Kyle Allen showed the Bucs fans that you don’t have to have a gun slinger in today’s NFL game. Timing is so important to make sure the ball is where its supposed to be and the receiver is ready for it. No matter who coaches the Bucs they havn’t been able to help Winston break his habit of waiting that millisecond too long to make his decision, then to make it worse the mechanics of him gearing back and releasing it slightly late. Sometimes it works because he can make up for the slower ball delivery with extra velocity but when under pressure and pocket is collapsing is where he doesn’t make the quick decision. After 5 years as an up and down quarterback, its time to relook the postion. Can anyone honestly say that a quarterback whose career has more turnovers than touchdowns gives you a chance to win games?
