RoJo On Pace For 1,148 Yards Rushing

October 9th, 2020

Before last night, it had been five freakin’ years since the Bucs had a running back deliver back-to-back games of 100 yards rushing or more.

In October of 2015, Doug Martin reeled off three consecutive games busting the 100-yard plateau.

Last night, Ronald Jones continued his stunning season with 17 carries for 106 yards against a good Bears defense, including another explosive run (37 yards) for the second week in a row.

RoJo is on pace for 1,148 yards rushing this season, and he’s averaging 4.85 yards per carry after two strong games to finish the 2019 season. What planet has Joe landed on? Apparently, it’s Planet RoJo.

Tom Brady praised RoJo for his hard and explosive running after the game, as did Bucco Bruce Arians.

It sure would have been nice to see RoJo get more touches, especially at least one on the Bucs’ three-play, 11-second turnover drive late in the first half that led to a Bears touchdown.

    Ndog stance means 2 things


    Every bad QB play was not jameis fault for last 5 years


    Every play in last year is Bradys fault

    “ oh but you guys didnt like him like jameis. You guys are meanies”

    First of all Jason Ñocht has made some amazing decisions in selecting certain players and Rojo is a feather in his cap so far, NO BREAKAWAY SPEED which is very hard to have if you are a BUCS RB. You see, Buccaneers RBs have been trained since they were very young,,,,, NO MATTER WHAT, if you get past the safety slow it down a liiiiiittle bit. We can’t have you go busting out house calls. I’m mad at everyone and everything Rn. YES …. WIRFS YES DEAN IS BIG and PHYSICAL and stands toe to toe with today’s monster receiver challenging the ball 🏈, but the SEAN MURPHY BROWN CMOOOOON GUY!!!!!! If he takes his head out his ERRRRRR!!! And plays tighter coverage on the sticks I mean even Todd Bowles couldn’t stay calm as he lectured the AIRHEAD again. This is the game guyz NO BLAMING THE REFEREES…. champions don’t allow outside forces to prevail and impact the final score. yes the calls were SOOO UNFAIR….. but so was NORMANDY in WW2. Not tryna compare the two butt just remedy that big game players overcome guys. They overcome and they sense the moment. They RISE!!! Some guyz out there just don’t have that it’s just not in them. This secondary NEEDS VEA and now he is GONE!!!! This secondary needs JPP and apparently as Joe said HE IS HURT! SHAQ is back down to earth 🌍…… SUH he is grinding Bros he is really Grinding…… Devin White???? He is a BOG TIME LINEBACKER in the making but GUYZ THIS SECONDARY NEEDS THE TONY DUNGY MODEL!! SAPP and RICE and all the rest of that DLINE….. there just was NOOOOO EDFORT ON JASON LICHTS PART TO BUILD FROM THE INSIDE OUT…… BUILD FROM THE TRENCHES BY STACKING PASS RUSHERS AND OLINE….

  5. AwShbucs Says:

    Love how you still havent even mentioned how disgustingly the Bucs were jobbed by the officials in this game.

  6. Clean House Says:

    Could have had 150-200 tonight poor play calling not sticking with him more

  7. adam from ny Says:

    rojo the mini earl campbell…

    running hard with disregard

  8. teacherman777 Says:

    If he was given 25 carries, we would have won!

    Horrible play calling!

    Give Brady the same powee to call plsys like Manning.

    Brady is older and better than Byron.

  9. adam from ny Says:

    i said win 1 out of 2 vs. the bears and packers…

    back against the wall now, but a win in 10 days solves this debacle

  10. Bobby M. Says:

    Rojo is running well, much improved….with that being said, if Fournette gets up to speed on the playbook AND healthy, I like Fournette every down. I think they run very similar but Fournette is a more fluid receiver….IMO. Rojo’s hands are not good and Brady utilizes the RB as a receiver frequently.

  11. Ndog Says:

    Hey Bird stop making excuses.

    Sound familiar?

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Finally, Rojo is getting carries & Rojo is getting yardage……Finally, Joe has come around….for now.

    But, we know Rojo can run….he’s done it before our very eyes…..if it stops, it will be because the holes aren’t there….again.

  13. Brandon Says:

    It was clear last season that our young CBs were gonna be good and that RoJo could be a good RB if given the chance. Going into the season, hordes of doubters wanted every veteran CB and RB signed. That’s not how you build a team. We signed Fournette and over half of our fan base said to move Fournette to start immediately… some said to cut RoJo.

    Keep in mind, RoJo is 23 years old… the exact same age Cadillac Williams was when he was a rookie… except RoJo is in his 3rd NFL season. Everyone is so quick to criticize him and apparently forget that Cadillac was a complete liability as a pass catcher… they also forget that after he entered the league with three straight 100 yard games he only had five more… for the rest of his career. Ro Jo is very good, potentially one of the best RBs we’ve ever had… and most of you clowns wanted to run him out of town. Don’t forget that.

  14. Cannon Says:

    My biggest takeaway from last night was “why didn’t we run Rojo more”?

    Dude was killing them at 4-5 yards a carry.

  15. Bucsfanman Says:

    Cannon- Me too. Against a team KNOWN for its pass rush, we dropped back 40+ times. Makes no sense to me.

  16. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    TOLD YOU!!! Anyone who knows football (pewter report everyone) knew Rojo would be successful after last year!!!

  17. Bird Says:
