The Tyler Johnson Revival

September 26th, 2021

Joe was glad to see Tyler Johnson re-emerge today as a capable and dangerous weapon in the Bucs’ passing attack.

Tom Brady even went to him in the end zone in the fourth quarter (uncatchable ball).

Johnson got six targets and hauled in three for 63 yards. He seemed in good sync with Brady, as well. The timing looked good.

Through the first two games, with Antonio Brown available, Johnson played just 20 snaps total and had one catch for five yards. Today, Brown was out on the COVID list.

Johnson standing out really highlighted the Bucs’ sick depth at receiver, but Joe was more impressed by Johnson’s readiness. He turned 23 last month and has overcome screwing up and coming to 2021 training camp out of shape.

Joe still remembers The Lost Decade and Bucs receivers who never really looked the part. Johnson, a fifth-round pick, certainly isn’t one of those guys.

The Bucs got kicked in the teeth today by the Rams, but Joe’s seeing plenty of positives — on one side of the ball.

    Time to move Scott Miller down the depth chart

    We need to trade one of our Wrs and a late draft pick for a solid CB. Do any of the 0-3 teams have a solid corner?

    Tyler Johnson looks really good…..

    Look at DeSean. He’s a one trick pony and it hasn’t worked out so bad for him. Man I dislike him very much and seeing run along the goal line and laughing at us on the other sideline for whatever reason pissed me off. Dude is a cancer and hope he does to the Rams locker room what he did in Tampa. I hope we get healthy and light their asses up in the playoffs.

    Yep…DeSean was pretty pouty ( per usual ) until he got a courtesy td when Edwards slipped on the turf. Him and McVay acted as if they had just won a Super Bowl.

    Wasn’t DeSean taunting on his TD? Bunch of bullspit. He is the last guy I want to see showboating against our Bucs. I really loathe him for what a pis( poor effort he put forth when he was here.

  11. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    As for Tyler Johnson, I loved the pick. I was disappointed in him for most of his rookie season. I believe he arrived today and knocked the little dust mite (Miller) down to #5.

    D Jax had a monster game after hadn’t been heard from, Matt Gay doesn’t miss any kicks and Raheem Morris called a helluva defensive game…. Next week expect Brady and Gronk to do the same, also ride ROjO and see what happens

  13. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Too bad Johnson’s not a corner; could have used him there today

    Peace, out ..

    Need to trade OJ for a DB!

  15. JWBUCS Says:

    Tyler Johnson really did perform well today…

  16. Nutterbuccer Says:

    Johnson will have his time to shin. I love Godwin but with him and Carlton Davis free agents both next year I don’t see him staying. Have to keep Davis. Johnson could very well be our number 2 next year depending on what AB does……Too much passing today. We didn’t even try to run the ball. Need to run the ball and set up play action thats what we do the best.

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    Should get more time over that stupid midget Scotty Miller, who, just before halftime, decides he’s going to jump around and lose yardage making for a really long FG attempt.

    Miller, you’re a fast guy, in a straight line, you’re fast. You have ZERO agility however. The team should never throw another screen to you, and you shouldn’t try to juke anyone.

    personally i think mcvay wanted to throw djax in the bucs face…

    it was a way of playing out the bucs…

    he’s an nfl insider, so he knows the whole story of djax vs the bucs…

    he got off throwing djax down the bucs throat…
