Bucs Have NFL Worst & Best On Pass Interference Calls

November 16th, 2019

Coaches talk a lot about complementary football, but this is not what they have in mind.

Nate Weller of Sharp Football Analysis has compiled date on pass interference calls and the Bucs have league leaders on both sides of the ball.

On the defensive side, cornerback Carlton Davis has four PI calls against him for 70 yards. That leads the NFL in total yardage given up to the dreaded PI flag. And keep in mind Davis has missed two games this season and was ejected early in another.

Mike Evans, however, is the king of drawing valuable PI flags this season. Guys covering him have been flagged six times for 113 yards. Deon Colts wide receiver Deon Cain appears to be second with 99 yards gained from two PI penalties against him.

Joe hopes Davis plays a little smarter, and that the Bucs get a little smarter by throwing more deep balls to Evans.

    Davis is physical AF and by far our best cover corner. He’s still very young and will improve every game. It’s a far cry from playing soft.

    They add a rule with the goal to get PI right more often and it has actually gotten worse. Adding rules does absolutely nothing to enhance the game and only complicates things.

    Yet whenever there is a problem they do not address the way they officiate the rules. They just add more rules on top of the existing rules.

    I don’t know what the thinking is behind adding so many rules to the game. The more they add and the more they expand replay they more controversy they add. It’s not the good kind of controversy for any sports enthusiast.

    Two of Davis’ “four PI calls” were total BS.

    Davis is not the problem with our secondary. If any single player is/WAS the “problem” it was Hargreaves.

    Hell, Hargreaves was rarely even in position to get called for PI – because he was ALWAYS trailing his man….

    I don’t recall Evans being called for pass interference yet this season. To his credit that seems a first this far along in the schedule.

    Davis and Dean are two peas in the pod–they both can play this game now–they got it figured out, now they need to tighten it up .

    I’ll take the athletic aggressiveness from CD any day all day. He will figure it out.

    The ME stats prove any QB would could succeed with ME due to this stat and his catch radius.

    JW = Fools Gold.

    Prove me wrong JW! I’m begging you as a fan. Beat the sh!t out our competition and stop the GDamn turnovers.

    Some of you make me laugh. Arians has it right…I do…the Bucs aren’t the darling of the league, and will never get calls like the Packers or NE do. Because we aren’t “Americans Team” in a league overshadowed by gambling and fan adoration. What ever made some of you think this was an “apples and apples” situation. The golden boy teams will always get the benefit of any doubt…and more.

    Here we go again. “Player X is horrible. Anyone can do what they do. He sucks. But hey, I’m a true fan so prove me wrong. Get me a win, ya bum. I’m begging…”. Absolutely ridiculous post on so many levels. Very funny. Go Bucs!

    Reach – JW is prolific. Scoring, Yds, Int’s. If you can’t see the Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde on the field like most of us do, then good for you. Root for your guy without seeing the whole picture.

    I have a different opinion, I see JW as a coin flip. Which one will show up on Sunday. Most often it’s both. Which is maddening, but it does not preclude me from rooting for him.

    You do you, and I’ll do me.
