Suprising Stat For RoJo

December 13th, 2020

Impressive stat.

Bucs fans who have been hooked by the “Ballad of RoJo” will love this stat on the third-year running back.

And Joe has to be surprised as hell by it.

As Joe has stated many times, Joe wouldn’t wipe his rear end the day after wolfing down Taco Bell with the PFF tribe’s grades. What a racket!

However, the PFF tribe does a nice job of jotting down stats. And this is one example.

We know RoJo enters today’s critical and potentially season make-or-break game with the Vikings with the fourth-most rushing yards in the NFL. And this is for coaches who way too often either panic and bail on the run, or for reasons unknown pull the ball out of his hands in the fourth quarter.

RoJo has never impressed Joe has a Derrick Henry-kinda guy who breaks tackles and pounds defenders at an elite level. Guess Joe better reassess.

The PFF tribe has the top four running backs with YAC, or yards after contact. And take a wild guess who is No. 4?

That’s right. RoJo!

Now this is very impressive. The only thing Joe would like to see RoJo do regularly is take a handoff to the house. Oh, he did that once already, 98 yards. But that’s unreasonable to expect to see again.

Earlier in the year when the Bucs beat the Stinking Panthers at home? Leonard Fournette housed a 46-yard run in the fourth quarter to ice the win. That’s what Joe would like to see more of from RoJo.

Of course, RoJo cannot do that if he doesn’t have the ball in his hands, you know?

    Love Rojos hard running style. Not afraid of contact. His pass blocking sucks and needs to work on pass receiving. That’s why they keep pulling him. You can’t whiff on the blitzer and get your QB killed. They need to use him more around the goal line. He needs to work to become a more complete back.

    Run .. run.. run .. old school football shows up on EVERY playoff winning team… off topic a bit I read somewhere this week “a scribe or talking head” said Rojo is a better back than Dalvin Cook… I bet that is on the Vikings bulletin board.. look for Cook to have a big game!

    Kinda hard to take it to the house when you only get 4 carries

    You know the rb doesn’t block right??? Too many times he’s hit at the line and doesn’t even have a crease to slide thru. Down field blocking isn’t always great so there’s that. Rojo does a lot with what he’s given at times. That 98 yarder is what happens when great blocking and the defense was playing something totally different from what we gave them. He proved right there and that 34 yard screen pass against the Chiefs he has what it takes to house the ball. If the coaches and Brady would stop punishing him because of a mistake he made he would have over 1100 yards right now.
