Miami’s Broken Secondary

October 8th, 2021

The Bucs’ depleted and battered defensive backfield has company this week.

The mighty (once mighty?) Bucs offense will face a Dolphins’ secondary on Sunday with starting cornerbacks struggling to practice 2020 All-Pro Xavien Howard and Byron Jones.

Howard had a shoulder injury but practice fully on Wednesday. Yesterday, he was limited with a groin injury, presumably a fresh one. Jones has quad and Achilles issues. He was limited in practice yesterday.

The Bucs, of course, counter with a flurry of receiving weapons and great protection for Tom Brady. The Dolphins have a nothing-special pass rush (7 sacks) as part of their 25th-ranked defense.

Let the slaughter begin!

    Don’t look past the Fins. Even the Jets can win a game from time to time. Each game needs 100% focus. Run the damn ball!!!! LFG!!!!

    Pete plays TB12 two quarters then sends him to the showers

    Bucs will down the ‘Phins faster than pill-popping, Natty Boh binge-drinking, Rojo-peeved, Trask-bashing, meltdown-having, Monday-morning-quarterbacking @Medicated Pete can down a growler of Natty Daddy.

    Don’t overlook the Dolphins, Brady has struggled against them in the past. Though his oline is better as well as his receivers. Sphinx QB’s not so good but we saw how defense made Mac Jones look like pro-bowler last week. Maybe a good coaching plan will help, nevermind, Bucs do your best.

    We both have broken secondaries…..but only one team has the top passing offense……big advantage, BUCS!!!

    Bucs also have 7 sacks, there is no gimme game in the NFL. That being said hope we can get ouroffense humming and the sunny weather this game is a plus. Gonna be a good day for some Bucs football.

    Mike Evans goes a buck and a quarter this week. And 2 TDs.

  8. Buc4evr Says:

    Never ever underestimate the Buc’s ability to play down to lesser opponents. Hope this is not another trap game.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Miami is terrible, too much hand ringing here. Bucs 34 Fins 10.

  11. SlyPirate Says:

    Expect big games from AB and Godwin. They need to be fed.

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    We need Tom Brady to throw a bunch of TDs and start inching closer to the single season record. This is the week to do it.

    How cool woul it be to have a Buccaneers QB in the record book above Manning Elway and Marino? 3 years ago this possibility would have been laughable.

    “let the slaughter begin” there you go again! You’ve said the same thing (except rams) every week, and the Bucs could very well be 0-4 (except for a few plays that went there way). Give it a rest, this is the NFL!

    Just want to see a clean game by the Offense,
    and the Defense to settle down at least some anyways.

    Brady with Clean Jersey,
    and not a bunch of turnovers by offense = a double digit win.

    But we will see.

    GO BUCS!!!!

    27-24 Bucs.

    Never overlook any team in the NFL. It’s like playing Alabama every game quoted a prominent coach. We need to win the games we should win. But be careful. Play at the highest level.

  17. Bojim Says:

    We need over 30 points.

  18. 1sparkybuc Says:

    I like feeling like the Bucs can beat any team in the league. I don’t like feeling like we could lose to any team in the league. A few blow out wins would boost my confidence. Our pass defense is a joke. Hopefully our D gets healthy and remembers how to play soon.
