Playoff Lenny Already An All-Time Bucs Playoff Star

March 11th, 2021

Playoff Lenny 

Each year the Bucs pump out a statistical review of the previous season.

Being that the Bucs just won the Super Bowl, this review is way cool.

Joe (thankfully) stumbled upon it in a spam folder last night and one thing jumped out.

Playoff Lenny has played in four Bucs postseason games and wasn’t exactly a huge factor in the passing game, and didn’t go full-blown Terrell Davis, but he was damn good, efficient. Yet Playoff Lenny is 54 yards short — or an OK playoff game away — from being the Bucs’ franchise postseason leader for yards from scrimmage.

This really shocked Joe. Initially, Joe thought Mike Alstott would have had a lot more scrimmage yards than 502. Same with Warrick Dunn (387).

Guess this demonstrates just how prehistoric and plodding the Bucs offense was before Chucky arrived. And with no passing attack to worry about back then, defenses seemingly just worried about shutting down Alstott and, to a lesser degree, Dunn.

    One and done, go get White. Holds SB record for most reception 15. I guess that means he can catch.

    Hoping to get Mike Evans and Godwin on this list next yr too – I, absolutely cannot stand Keyshawn. Not a true Buccaneer, is never a part of any get-togethers with the 2002 team, (because nobody liked him especially Sapp) and frankly just his voice, his demeanor, just the way he talks or argues on his awful espn show, bugs me. He is extremely GRATING to me. I can’t wait until he’s wiped from every conceivable receiving list

    Lombardi Lenny had a good run. If he stays it would be good. At the same time James White has great Chemistry with Brady. Atlanta sure does not like him after he scored the game winning TD in the huge comeback in the Super Bowl. GO BUCS!!!

    Haha, that’s a lot of hate for Keyshawn. For some reason, my most vivid memory of him was watching him run onto field from the Carolina bench when Chris Simms’ spleen exploded in a game. I think he scored a big touchdown that game too.

    I trust Licht to make the best decisions with these difficult choices facing him.

  6. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Like Joe…was somewhat surprised myself then realized the Buc playoff resumè was rather light ( other than 2002 of course ). Dunn was done too early with the Bucs ( returned for a victory lap when the team was lousy again ) and Alstott was typically kept to low yards by the Eagles.

  7. Chris Thomas from Heaven Says:

    Everyone on this team stepped up in the playoffs & it was like the perfect wave coming together

  8. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    I’d love if he wanted to come back but he’ll cash somewhere else, why wouldn’t he. He has his ring. Now get more money. I’ll always appreciate what he did here but someone will pay for the playoff run, it won’t be us.

  9. Alaskabuc Says:

    I see the Chiefs just cut both their starting tackles. Aren’t those the same missing tackles they blame losing the super bowl on?

    Mark Alscott

    I think it shows how important Fournette was on our playoff run. I know we are resigned to let him go in FA but we might think twice.

  12. Cainishere Says:

    Leonard is a good back no doubts there but much like Shaq, he could care less who he plays for as long as he is paid the most money possible. I hate to be negative about players like he and Shaq but players like Keyshawn, Shaq and Lenny are players who want the money and the rest doesn’t really matter.
    Players with that type of mentality do not need to be on a selfless team like the Buccaneers.

  13. Buczilla Says:

    Gosh that’s sad

  14. Steve Gaudreau Says:

    To be fair running backs have a short shelf life in the NFL, injuries can end a career. It sucks but it’s the nature of the game. I can understand why Lenny would want to be paid good money cuz in the long run he’ll be able to afford a good life dealing with the pain that the body has taken during his career. Guys like Earl Campbell can barely walk anymore so I can’t blame any of those guys wanting to make as much money as possible before their career passes by.

  15. Bucanero Says:

    I hope he takes a discount. I like that he has no issues with ball security.

  16. HeyItsAdam Says:

    Passing on Dalvin Cook buried the offense in one-dimensional predictability for half a decade. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE.

    I’m tired of hearing the “RBs have a short shelf life” mantra. Today’s backs are not the bell-cows of the 80s and 90s and LF had a fairly light load this season. Personally, I think LF excelled in the playoffs BECAUSE he was part of a split with Jones.

  17. Joe in Michigan Says:

    “Playoff Lenny” to “Laid Off Lenny”? Just kidding, I thank him for his contributions in 20′-21′, and wish him well in all future endeavors.

  18. gotbbucs Says:

    You’ll never see Arians sign a RB to a big contract. Never.

    Doug Martin should have been a good enough lesson for Licht.

    Unless your offense is completely built around the running back, it’s a three or four year window and you find a new one.

  19. gotbbucs Says:

    He averaged 3.8 yards behind the same offensive line that Ronald Jones averaged 5.1 yards.
    Fournette is a dime a dozen running back.

    Signing Ryan Succop is ten times more important than signing Fournette.


    James White White averages 4.0 yds per carry and he’s a 3rd down back.
