Another Reason To Abolish Preseason

November 3rd, 2019

So, about those hands…

Preseason is a total con. And too many fans lap up the propaganda.

Joe saw a groundswell of Bucs fans just downright giddy that this practice squad guy Tanner Hudson was promoted to the parent club and activated because of all the injuries to Bucs tight ends.

Why did people on social media and in the comments on this here site rejoice? Because Hudson caught passes in preseason. In the second half of preseason games. Against janitors, driver’s ed teachers and Applebee’s managers.

So what happened when Hudson got on the field the last two games with these hands that would make people forget Cris Carter? He dropped two touchdown passes where America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, hit him square in the hands.

Preseason is simply at best a tease and, in actuality, a fraud.

Preseason games should be abolished. There is neither a need nor a reason to have these damn things.

    by your logic Joe……should we have gotten rid of Mike Evans when he was dropping alot of passes too???

  3. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Maybe he just plays better at night. His daytime game sucks.

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Joe is off his meds tonight…..

  5. JimmyJack Says:

    Let’s see Tanner Hudson in last two weeks….no catches. Dropped 14 points.

    Don’t know what preseason has to do with it. Ya still gotta practice. Wierd stuff

    We..truly Suck to..Holy Hell and beyond. Stay tuned for..The Outer Limits.

    Right. Because Mike Evans has never caught an NFL pass before last week.

  8. Fire the fans Says:

    Anthem, what does this post have to do with cutting anyone?

  9. H8JWLveBucs Says:

    How long before Evans asked to be traded?

  10. buc15 Says:

    Hold it together Joe…you are loosing your ish tonight lol

  11. orlbucfan Says:

    Where is my earlier comment?? We need the preseason to weed out the new players. The vets can rest, but at the same time, they like it cos they can warm up for the regular season.

  12. H8JWLveBucs Says:

    Damn why can we have a Russell Wilson at QB

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Off subject but even though Devin White made a couple of rookie mistakes……he was in deep coverage on a pass and had a BS PI called….but, watch that play again when he ran down the Seattle runner from behind and stripped the ball…..he was at the line of scrimmage out of the play but recovered and ran down the runner……White has tremendous speed…
    He will be a great player for us.

  14. Petty Officer Buc Says:

    Mike Evans will not be on this team next year. Screencap this post and date right now.

  15. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I think white used to be a RB is highschool?

  16. Brian Says:

    Someone is triggered. Yikes.

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    That Devin White strip was actually too violent……it shot the ball out of bounds….

    And about Tanner Hudson & pre-season… we are blaming him for being so good in pre-season that he made the team…..and as our 4th TE was forced to start due to injury…..and he dropped a couple of passes…
    OJ has also dropped a couple…..he’s a 1st round pick…Hudson is an UDFA…
    Give Hudson some time…..perhaps next pre-season…..

  18. Buc believer Says:

    I guess they evaluated him and Scotty Miller together. They both SUCK!

  19. unbelievable Says:

    But all the geniuses steps d here kept saying g we could trade Howard and Brate because Hudson could do just as good of a job.

    Not so much it seems.

  20. Craig Says:

    We are stuck with Preseason until the next sit down between the owners and the NFLPA. The last encounter made preseason in ti=o training camp/

    The real problem is that he can catch Ryan Griffin passes, bit not jameis passes. I would almost beg to see what Ryan Griffin could do in a real game.

    The Bucs were up 21-7 and lost, something needs to change. A QB that can play a whole game might be that thing.

  21. adam from ny Says:

    cut him and sign don kernodle (the old awa wrastler) 🙂

  22. adam from ny Says:

    where tf is brate !?!?!

  23. TexBuc Says:

    We gave up 40 points and some are concerned with out QB who put up 34? Should not win a game if we give up 40 points.

  24. TexBuc Says:

    Brate has a rib injury.

  25. simsini Says:

    If Cam Brate was on the field, why did those plays target Hudson and not him?

  26. Mister Negative Nancy Says:

    Jeff Carlson preaches that the way a QB throws the ball greatly affects how catchable it is for the receivers. Were these preseason passes from Blaine Gabbert or Ryan Griffin?

  27. bucy Says:

    Actually there is a need, and it is to assess talent for bubble players on the roster… But since Licht has proven incapable of doing this I agree here in TB preseason is pointless.

  28. Bucamania Says:

    Tanner let me down. I was on his hype train. Dude looks like he’s never seen a football thrown to him before lol
