“Inventory Of Consistency”

December 4th, 2021


Yesterday on NFL Network, a debate broke out over what team the talking heads have the most faith in to do damage down the stretch.

James Palmer, who has covered the Bucs quite a bit the past two seasons for NFL Network and attended last Sunday’s game in Indianapolis, said his choice is simple. He has the most faith in the Bucs.

Why? Well, Palmer likes their depth that got them through key injuries to Sean Murphy-Bunting and Carlton Davis and foot-rubbing, car-littering film guru tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Now that those guys are returning, look out, Palmer said.

“What did we talk about before the season? All of those starters returning,” Palmer said. “Really, what that did was supply them with a lot of depth.”

That depth, Palmer said, gave the Bucs an “inventory of consistency.”

Joe thinks Palmer is right on the money. The Bucs survived all of these injuries and it appears Davis may play Sunday. What a perfect time to get healthy: December.

You can see Palmer’s full take in the NFL Network video below.

    Being a hand to hand combat instructor I don’t like having to ‘come alive’ in the bottom quarter of the fight, but I also know that is often part of the formula.
    Everyone would like a debilitating move early on in the fight but sometimes your opponent or your health forces you to Wait for your chance!
    It is all about seizing the moment then.

    Well, it seems like it’s gonna be a revolving door. Seems to me like someone gets injured every week in practice or a game. So if it keeps up revolving we should be okay with “next man up” continuing to work well.

    We can’t afford any more losses at safety with Edwards suspended and Whitehead hurt. Every game we squeak out a win in this crippled state is a gift.

    If the Bucs still have the “it” factor for a very deep run this year it should be evident in these next three games. That is, pretty complete games without the stupid penalties and turnovers (yes, Brady too/especially). They need a decisive win in ATL, beat BUF at home, and put NO away handily. I am optimistic on this–they can do it. But we shall see.

    I think Tom Brady will be the key for a deep run m in the playoffs. He has not looked like his previous self since the Washington game. Dinks and dumps have dominated his performances lately. And poor throws to open receivers seem much more common for some reason. He has short armed a lot of throws lately with ball way too low at receivers feet or in the ground. Just not looking like the precision passer we are used too. And the long throws almost non existent. This team will only go deep in the playoffs if Brady regains his down the field precision throws. Drinking and dunking will not be dominating against good teams. Three and outs and short drives will really hurt against strong opponents.

    Be careful. The injuries may not be over…yet.

    Still a lot of football to play.
