Camp Cupcake Day 20 Practice Notes

August 19th, 2021

Yeah, there were fights today. Lots of them. There were also excellent plays made by both teams. Some quality athleticism out there today at One Buc Palace.

The highlights:

* Chris Godwin catches a Tom Brady pass in the far right corner for a touchdown — one-handed.

* Brady tries to go to Antonio Brown but Chris Jackson is all over him with good coverage. Incomplete.

* Brady tries to go to Godwin over the middle but
Kristian Fulton gets a hand on the pass.

* Mike Evans catches a pass from Brady beating Caleb Farley.

* The Brown-Jackson hassle happens.

* During one-on-one drills, Titans receiver Fred Brown shows some quicks as he shakes Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting on a couple of short routes.

* Brady to Rob Gronkowski down the left sideline. Crowd roars. Gronk has only been around for a year and already he’s a fan favorite.

* Brady threads the needle between two Titans defenders to get a pass down the left seams to Tyler Johnson.

* Ke’Shawn Vaughn up the middle but there’s no room to run.

* That skid mark on the grass is what is left from Caleb Farley trying to guard Gronk. Brady throws to his long-time pal for a touchdown.

* Evans hauls in a deep pass from Brady along the right sideline for a score.

Bucs Defense 7-on-7

* Pick! Mike Edwards intercepts Ryan Tannehill. The way Edwards has played this training camp, if he isn’t careful he may just find himself as a starter.

* Tannehill waits and waits and waits and finally decides to roll out to the right and dumps off to Tory Carter in the right flat in front of K.J. Britt.

* Racey McMath finds an opening over the middle and Tannehill hits him right in front of Edwards.

* Fred Brown catches a Tannehill pass in almost the exact same spot. Edwards had good coverage on him and Joe thought Edwards had a pick but the ball found its way into Brown’s hands.

* Playing from the left side, Joe Tryon blows past Titans blockers and races to Matt Barkley. Had there been normal hitting, Barkley would have been plastered.

Bucs red zone!

* Brady to Gronk left side.

* Brady to Brown deep, but the ball is off Brown’s hands. He had shook off a defender and gotten behind the defense down the right seam.

* On a crossing pattern from right to left, Brady connects short with Giovani Bernard and he turns it up-field and races for six.

* Brady tries to hit Godwin in the back of the end zone, Godwin cannot quite come up with it.

* Brady to Playoff Lenny who runs to the goal line. Joe cannot tell if Playoff Lenny was out of bounds as he neared the right front pylon or not.

Bucs defense

* Tannehill completes a pass to Nick Westbrook-Ikhine along the left sideline. Carlton Davis had coverage.

* Westbrook-Ikhine catches another pass from Tannehill, this time up the middle.

* Hey, it’s Luke Stocker! The former Bucs tight end, drafted by former rock star general manager Mark Dominik in 2011 is still around and playing for the Titans. He catches a pass going up against Carlton Davis up the right seam.

* Tannehill completes a pass over the middle despite Devin White getting a hand on the ball. White is not happy. Joe could hear White grunt standing 100 yards away.

* Stocker catches another pass from Tannehill, this time short and underneath.

    The “Nosepickers” weak Bucs Secondary is already giving up completions. No surprise. More to come.

  2. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Thanks for the info, Joe. The Titans have a good team, the joint practices will make both teams better. Lovie didn’t want them, though. Or refs at practice. Simple as that.

  3. Joe in Michigan Says:

    BradyBucs: Do you know anything about NFL football? Teams normally complete between 60 and 70% of passes attempted. So yes, DB’s on every team give up completions.

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Any punt return activity?…..

  5. Swampbuc Says:

    BradyBucs — are you already drunk? Seriously? “Nosepickers?”

    Stick to whiffle ball or some sport more to your end of the spectrum.

  6. SB Says:

    @Swampbuc……..I am thinking more along the line of professional knitting for Brady Bucs

  7. JimmyJack Says:

    BradyBucs, well you got the pickers part. We also got one of those today in case you missed.

  8. Mr.B Says:

    Sounds good to me

  9. Irishmist Says:

    Other than Lavonte, Luke Stocker may have been Dominik’s best pick.

    Hey hey hey now!! I’m the resident drunk here! 😂

  11. tampabuscsbro Says:

    Yeah but Irishmist Dominik is still called a rockstar around here even though every bit of common sense says differently.

    Same with how the bucs should have drafted Johnny Football instead of Mike Evans.

  12. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Will Gholston over Luke Stocker, IMHO.

    Wow, no one is mentioning Softie93?

  14. Mickman Says:

    Hey Joe in Michigan…60-70 percent? It’s Tannehill and Barkley, not Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers. It isn’t never a good sense to see the Titans Offensive do well passingl. They are a running team of which I see not run attempts. Bradybucs has a valid reason to be concerned.

  15. Joe in Michigan Says:

    If they were able to measure someone’s heart at the Combine, JPP would’ve been the pick at number 3.

  16. BradyBucs Says:

    Joe in Michigan,

    I know A LOT about NFL football. Enough to know that our Secondary (namely Davis/SMB/Dean) are the major WEAKNESS on this Team.

    I’m one of the few that has paid attention to their play and hasn’t gotten drunk on the “Gravediggers” overhyped Kool-Aid. These guys will continue to be a defensive liability with a major progression.

    So funny how all the Kool-Aid drinkers don’t like to talk about how Heinicke TORCHED our weak secondary in that WFT wildcard game, as well as other QBs did for most of the regular season.

  17. BradyBucs Says:

    *Without a major progression.

  18. A Real American Says:

    Nothing about Blaine?
    What the hell?

  19. Steven007 Says:

    Brady Bucs, we won the Super bowl. Really not that much to complain about. Preemptively complaining about a secondary that played lights out the last quarter of the season is really reaching. Why would you do that before the season even starts? Simply to be contrarian? Weak sauce dude.

  20. Joe in Michigan Says:

    BradyBucs: Since you know a lot about the NFL, you know that the rules favor the offense, and you know even average QB’s complete 60% of their passes. So you know and agree with me that all DB’s give up completions in the NFL.
    Since you know about the NFL, you know that the Bucs won the Super Bowl this year. With the same DB’s you’re whining about for whatever reason.
    What part do I have wrong and you’re right about, BradyBucs?

  21. Patrianakos Says:

    Joining the pile-on:
    Devin White did not play the wildcard game. IIRC, the kid had all day to throw. These things are not unconnected. WFT is on our schedule this year. We shall see.

  22. Beeej Says:

    Is Justin Watson even allowed to practice anymore?

  23. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Heinicke’s stats: 26-44, 59%, 306 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
    Although I never heard of the guy before that game, he played a good game, showed a lot of heart. If you put any other QB’s name in the stat line, would you say he TORCHED a defense?
    Did you see SMB’s INT in this game?

  24. Joe Says:

    Is Justin Watson even allowed to practice anymore?

    Not until doctors let him.

  25. kyle Says:

    bradybucs has to either be an idiot or retarded? pick your poison

  26. Joe in Michigan Says:

    I’ve seen decent posts by BradyBucs, I just disagree with him on the Bucs secondary. I’m sure he wanted the Bucs to draft Caleb Farley, you know, the guy that gotten eaten alive in practice. It happens, especially in the NFL.

  27. Swampbuc Says:

    BradyBucs knows the NFL, folks. Really, you know, holding Tyreek Hill to bumpkus in the Super Bowl is a sure sign of scrubbery. Cut them all and bring back Biggers and Myron Lewis.

    What a maroon!
