“He Caught The Ball Fine”

November 6th, 2020

Great news!!!!

Chris Godwin caught balls at practice today and Bucco Bruce Arians said it’s very likely he can play on Sunday night.

“We’ll see how sore it is tomorrow,” Arians said this afternoon. “I’m pretty sure he’ll go. … He caught the ball fine.”

It’ll come down to “how much pain he can he tolerate,” Arians said.

Arians made it very clear that Godwin is cleared to play and is not at risk of further complications playing with his surgically-repaired finger.

It seems the new Godwin splint Joe wrote about worked out well. Arians made no mention of Godwin dropping balls or appearing limited.

Godwin broke his finger playing against the Raiders two Sundays ago, a game in which he caught all nine balls thrown his way.

    Just amputate the finger if necessary……..fewer digits works fine for JPP…..

    @Tampabaybucfan Ronnie Lott approves this message.

    Man. I’m just not real confident but he’ll play if he can.

    If Godwin, Evans, AB, and Gronk are all on the field at once, no way the Saints can cover them all. Should be a big night for Brady. It should also open up the running game. Let’s just hope that the D can throttle Brees enough for us to outscore them.

    Guessing he’ll shoot it up with something, tape it to a finger and wont miss a beat.

  8. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I always feel better when Godwin is playing.
    He almost always gets those hard yards.

    Go Bucs!
    F the Aints!

    Evans, Godwin, Gronk, AB, Etc. Aint’s are going home down in the division. Get um Bucs Full throttle..Prime time..

    I would expect him to play more outside than usual, as he probably won’t be asked to block much. Perhaps they move Evans inside more this game or split Gronk out.

    Excellent news! Now put a splint on Marpet’s head and lets go!!

    I imagine Cam Jordan to be the type of guy to grab Godwin’s bad finger and twist it.

  14. SOEbuc Says:

    Idiots. How much pain he can take? Him and Mike can take pain doesn’t mean they’re close to physically healthy. If he does go, I had a wet dream about this formation the night we signed AB.

  15. H3lp Says:

    I just wish they would have found some help at the o line that way he could have more time for the 4 horsemen to get open lol

    Except for the better bank account balance, I truly would not want to be Dennis Allen (Saints D. Coordinater) right now having to game plan against Brady, Godwin, Evans, Brown, Miller (not there yet in consistent production as the others, BUT THAT SPEED 🤯) and of course Gronk. They can’t double team anybody, or else will get eaten alive!

  17. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Joe Haeg will do just fine subbing for Ali Marpet. No, he is not Ali, but I’m not too worried.

    Seeing Evans, Godwin, Brown and Miller out there gives me some real encouragement … some #@%* hope! … might even be called faith! Not to mention seeing RoJo and Fournette in the backfield. Oh, yes, there will also be be Gronk, Brate and Auclair lending support.

    Now about our defense. … 😆 Need I say more!

    Go Bucs! Beat ‘hell out dem stinky Saints! Take the mount’ top!

    Against down and dirty Sean Peyton? That nasty SOB will have them target his hand to take him out. Use him as a decoy sure but I won’t expect much from Godwin this game nor should we really. Better to have him healthy for the stretch run
