Heroes On The Offensive Line

September 10th, 2021

Take a bow, Donovan Smith.

But really, the entire Bucs’ offensive line deserves major love for tonight’s performance.

How many times was Tom Brady sacked? Zero.

How many hits did Brady absorb? Just two.

That’s damn near perfect for a largely immobile quarterback who attemped 50 throws.

General manager Jason Licht should be conferencing calling Team Glazer and screaming, “You like that?!?!

Joe can’t wait to watch the reply and study the fun. Yeah, Dallas doesn’t have a ferocious rush, but they have a little talent up front and DeMarcus Lawrence is among the best edge rushers in the game.

The O-line didn’t fumble or play soft defense. They just did the most important job in Tampa; protect Brady.

Joe even thought the push in the running game was pretty good, too, and it was the running backs that left some yards on the field.

    And against a usually solid Dallas D line too. With the exception of a few penalties, nice job O line.

  2. Leighroy Says:

    Let’s be VERY clear that no one is calling anyone about anyone’s performance tonight asking if they liked it!

  3. Ash Says:

    They need to throw that run scheme into the trash and light it on fire and stop throwing the ball to Lenny please

  4. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Not worried about offense. But our D must do better.

  5. Bird Says:

    Yah. 4.2 seconds release helps too

    With how crappy everything went with rest of game

    You knew bucs were in good shape cause brady got the ball at the end
    All he needs is a minute and change
    He is the GOAT and not a farm animal
    The other monikers are honestly pointless

    That dude had no run game. No defense and turnover after turnover

    So much fun to watch

    Maybe a cb would have been a better pick then a QB that can’t help the team this season dean was awful

  7. Blue Ocho Says:

    Hey Joe – please share your thoughts on the continuous 1st down runs and Brady shaking off play calls more than a few times. Still, uncomfortable with Leftwich but I’m trying to hang with him.

  8. Swampbuc Says:

    Gregory is good. Micah is excellent.

    Don Smith was an idiot on the false start, could have cost them the game.

    The whole team needs to get over themselves and go back to basics.

  9. Bird Says:

    And how many times did brady call off plays from the sideline at the end
    He is running the show. We are in good hands

  10. Sport Says:

    Spot on Joseph! They did a great job tonight.

    There are many ways to win. It’s so nice to see them go in our favor consistently.

    The injuries on D are going to be an issue….

    Go Bucs!

    In BA I Trust!

    Dallas is a much better team than last year.

  12. Leighroy Says:

    And let’s not pretend though that a 64th overall rookie 4th string CB would have been the saving grace tonight.

  13. RioDeJaneiroBucsFan Says:

    The OL was amazing and Gronk is a hell of a blocker. And the RBs really left some yards. But one thing I can’t understand is why every single 2nd and short BL calls a play from the shotgun.

  14. Long John Says:

    Out coached this game.

  15. HC Grover Says:

    Rojo is over rated.

  16. firethecannons Says:

    Playoff Lenny got the start and the finish–he was better tonight!

  17. jiminph Says:

    Where is the running game?

  18. Beeej Says:

    When Rojo had the ball punched out, that was like the fifth drive in a row to start off running up the gut, and they pounced on it
