Playoff Lenny And The Rumble Heard Across Tampa Bay

January 24th, 2021

It wasn’t Ronald Jones’ day, but it sure was Leonard Fournette’s.

The late-summer signing that had Joe doing cartwheels down Dale Mabry Highway has been the workhorse January hero in the Buccaneers’ backfield.

Today it was Fournette protecting the football and rumbling for 55 yards on 12 carries, but it was Fournette’s now-historic touchdown run that was the jewel of the game for the Bucs offense.

Joe’s got the Twitter video below for all to enjoy again and again.

Fournette’s hands failed him a bit in the passing game, but he still caught five balls and by far remains the Bucs’ best option out of the backfield.

Joe has long doubted Fournette would be back next season as a 26-year-old expensive free agent. But maybe he’ll be more desired by management that it appeared a few weeks ago.

It sure is nice to have a true every-down back who can ball.

Playoff Lenny, we love you!

    Playoff lenny

    I need to eat crow. I was down on him but he stepped up in playoffs

    Rojo looked like he was running in quick sand. He has to be hurt or something.

    We cannot play in a stadium called the Den of Depression! It’s time for a rename!!!!

    Roger’s hugging Brady was about sincere as if Trump hugged Biden at his inauguration. Sorry Aaron just another so so overrated QB that can’t win the big one. GO BUCS!!!

  6. Miller5252 Says:

    Forny tried to do his best Beast Mode run and did it pretty dang good!!! They just need one more game from him and we’ll hoist that trophy we deserve!!

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Except for that TD by Fournette…..our 1st down runs were stuffed all day…..
    Then, we go with empty backfields….???/???

    Oh well….we made enough plays on both sides of the ball to win.

  8. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    The D is the reason we won this game!!! Back to back great performances against great offensive teams by our D. Great dress rehearsal for the the ills or Chiefs in 2 weeks!!!

  9. J Dubb Says:

    The problem with Rojo is that the play calling is crap when he’s in the game. As soon as he comes on the field, everyone knows it’s a running play. Fournette gives us diversity which makes us more effective.

  10. Listnfrmafar Says:

    You may see more breakout runs if BL mixed it up a bit but not complaining. I will eat crow I was down on Lenny as well. That’s the difference of a vet versus rookie. Total team effort. Lenny just another veteran leader.

  11. Formally Tampa 2 Says:

    We lost both of our safeties, and the offense stepped to compensate.

  12. Mitch Says:

    Bonzai Joe retired that moniker at the end of the regular season.

    We are in the super bowl. I think your complaints about the play calling should be lessened.

  14. FairMinded Says:

    Said it at the time and I believe of the greatest runs in all of Bucs history!

  15. Go Bucs! Says:

    Nothing to complain about! Jason Licht earned his money this year.

  16. Go Bucs! Says:

    Best back to back plays on team history- Godwin’s catch and Lenny’s run!

  17. Godlovesbucs Says:

    Man, what a game. Fournette looks so fresh this postseason. I like our 1-2 punch. Rojo, AB, Winfield, and Vea all get 2 weeks to rest up and be ready for THE SUPER BOWL!!!!

  18. rrsrq Says:

    The pack sold out to stop the run, because they knew they could be had, so there were very few holes period, but I gotta give Lenny some love

  19. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I will also fall on the sword. Fournette stunk most of the regular season, but he’s Playoff Lenny playing for a contract.

  20. Pruritus Ani Says:

    Can’t say enough good things about the team. Sure is nice to be in this spot. Agree with what others have posted. Jones doesn’t’ seem to be himself but at least Fournette has stepped up.

  21. J Dubb Says:

    @geno 711

    Sorry, was not meaning to sound too harsh. I am as exuberant as anyone that we are finally there and the playcalling on a whole has been good. Just trying to point out the difference between Rojo and Fournette, that a little more play action when Rojo is in the game would make his running more effective.

  22. BREVARD BUC Says:

    Playoff Lenny!

    What a beautiful monicker! Even if it was self given, still a classic!

  23. Robin bell Says:

    How about them Bucs one more bozsGo Brady and the BUCS

  24. Coburn Says:

    Yeah Rojo is fine… We just become too predictable when he was in. Every first down he was in was up the middle. No play action and didn’t even keep em honest by trying to throw a ball his way

  25. ModHairKen Says:

    That TD run was one that will be shown for many, many years. Give us one more game this year, Mr. Fournette. This is for immortality.

    Then go get that money. You’ve earned it.

  26. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    Yes sir he played his tail off today!! I’m a big Rojo fan but Fornette with his experience in this league played much better today!! … Rojo doesn’t have the patience that Fornette does! He wants to hit the hole hard… Fornette was VERY patient running the ball tonight and made a couple really good ones… I think against the chiefs Rojo gets 100 yards… Mark it down I said it first… KC (looks like they’ll win) is really aggressive up front and that’s perfect for Rojo style

  28. unbelievable Says:

    Just stop running every single first down, and playoff Lenny and RoJo will both explode.

    Offensive playcalling today was troubling. Especially the 2nd half. Nothing but bombs and 1st down runs. WTF?

    We did what we needed, which is all that matters of course. Just feels like there’s so much more potential in the offense. Also those Brady INTs… yikes.

  29. Ufcguy32 Says:

    Still too predictable, still shooting ourselves in the foot with drops i think I counted 7 at least. These catches were easy with the exception of the one slightly high to evans….you gotta freaking make that catch. Evans had a horrible game. Godwin great catch easy drop again. Fournette easy drops at least 2. Third and short….my God Byron your so damn conservative on first but u chuck it 50 yds on a running down ….this has to stop. Move the chains thats it. We truly are our own worst enemy most of the time. Just stupid. I’ve never seen a talented do such stupid things on easy plays that really are easy fixes. That being said happy we won but if u want to beat kc….you can’t have these mistakes. Defensively you better get Mahommes on the ground and listen to what Romo said about kelce. He literally told everyone how to beat this offense.
