Thank You, Mrs. Miller!

February 1st, 2021

The story of Scotty Miller’s breakthrough season, including his NFC Championship bomb of a catch, has a layer few Bucs fans are aware of.

In a very cool story on, it’s explained that when Miller was struggling to find a quarterback for regular training in the early days of the pandemic, he found one at home.

Miller’s love, decorated college gymnast Jenna Rizkalla, stepped up to the line of scrimmage.

Well, you learn a lot about your loved ones during a time of crisis, and Miller was about to discover that woman he would soon marry had a rifle for an arm.

“I kept on telling him to back up farther and farther, and I kept hitting him,” Rizkalla said with a laugh in a phone interview with NJ Advance Media last week. “A lot of people don’t believe how strong my arm is, but luckily, we have it on video.”

And, so, a pandemic routine was born in Tampa, with Miller running his routes and Rizkalla slinging the passes in their backyard or at local fields. They kept that up nearly every day in the spring and summer … until the new guy got to town.

“I was really starting to build up my arm strength during the pandemic,” Rizkalla said, “but now Tom’s taken over for me.”

How cool is that!

Joe will let the short video here do the talking. Rizkalla cranks out a 33-yard pass below.

    Great way to prepare for what we thought we was getting: noodle arm. But it turns out we didn’t

    she’s got all skills!

  5. Hawk Says:

    It took everything she had to get it 33 yards, but that’s still 23 yards farther that Brees can throw.

    I can think of a few teams that need the services of Jenna Rizkalla!

    I think we’ve found our QB of the future!
    She’ll never get sacked, and if anyone ever does, LOOK OUT!

    Hey Joe,

    I know it’s early in the day, but from your media point of view, do you think that the COVID protocols for things like today’s media day might carry into the future?

    Gotta be better ( less hassle) for players. Eliminates mindless questions, I would imagine. Will have to wait until tonight to see.

    Just curios what you think

  19. NotTampaTom Says:

    yea but can she scramble around and extend plays?

    Just show a brief video of any woman and the scumbags sink to the bottom. Have some class and respect for Mr. Millers’ wife you freaking assclowns.

  26. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Love that pony tail!!! Nice throw too

  27. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Now that she’ll have to compete with men who identify as a woman…..she can beat most of those sissies…….

  28. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    That was a cool story! Loved the video proof of her arm. On top of that she looks like a real sweetheart.

    Happy for both of them!

  29. lambchop Says:

    Jenna’s got a gun
    Her whole world’s under shotgun
    From lookin off safety’s for fun

  30. Travis Says:

    That’s a hell of a catch, well done Scotty!

    The reception was good too

  31. David Says:

    Damn. That was a pretty effortless 30 yard throw right on the money.

    Dare I say Winston would’ve overthrown it? 😂

  32. Hawk Says:

    @ David
    With Scotty being the only person out there, there’s still a ’30/30′ chance that Jameis would throw a pick.

  33. Owlykat Says:

    Next year we will likely see more of Jameis than we want. The Saints’ Coach has been training Jameis on how to avoid turnovers. If that is successful watch out. Jameis can make long throws and is a good runner as well.

    That’s awesome, thanks for the story Joe!
