Clean Living For Tom Brady

October 3rd, 2022

So how bout that Buccaneers’ offensive line, Coach Bowles?

Tampa Bay’s head man was talking about it today on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Co-host Pat Kirwan, the former Jets linebackers coach and personnel chief, was sharing with Bowles that he liked what he saw from the Bucs’ O-line on film. The pass blocking was very much on point, Kirwan said, adding that Tom Brady’s pocket movement and sliding were excellent.

Bowles was asked for his “bright spots” on the game film and he went to the O-line, too.

“They did a decent job. You know, the guys are gelling together pretty good. There was a few pressures in there but for the most part they kept him upright,” Bowles said of the O-line. “And [Brady] threw the ball pretty well. Having some healthy receivers back, I thought the passing game was finally getting” on track.

Not only have the Bucs invested many tens of millions in wide receivers, they also have an offensive line that consistently seems more successful at pass blocking than run blocking.

Joe sure hopes the Bucs play to their strengths on Sunday against Atlanta.

Despite all the angst about the Bucs’ passing game, Brady ranks third in the NFC in passing yards, and Matt Stafford will need more than 300 yards tonight to pass Brady.

    STILL HAVE TO RUN THE DANG BALL to control the clock and keep you D Fresh. We don’t want the GOAT going all ATM and collecting GARBADGE yards every game.

    Our Oline is obviously better when D Smith is playing……..It looks like Brady rushes his throws sometimes……he also is very careful not to throw picks….so he throws it where only his receiver can catch it…..that results in more difficult catches and incomplete passes.
    But, we look solid.

    I’m wondering what will happen with Hainsey for the next two years when Jensen is back……one of the best backup centers in the league….
    I would suspect he could also be a backup guard or tackle.

    Game was over at halftime. Silver linings are for losers. They got whipped.

  4. Bucamania Says:

    Ok well Chris Jones was blowing up Goedeke and the Bucs only had 3 yards rushing.

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    I’m watching the game again…..and we are getting beat again.

  6. NashvilleBuc Says:

    The most painful part of the game was watching every single Chief with the ball drag 10 Bucs for 10 yards.

  7. RightOnMan Says:

    Todd bowles is 28-43 as a HC.

  8. DoooshLaRue Says:


    See if you can count how many times he and one other DL lined up in the neutral zone.
    No excuses….. but it’s ridiculous it didn’t get called.

  9. Beeej Says:

    Two times Lenny got stuffed in the backfield was because Otton either missed his block or got pushed back. Can’t believe Rudolph has slipped enough that he isn’t still a capable blocker

  10. Buc king Says:

    Only reason we lost that game is defense…
    I put blame where it should go..
    Defense was horrid on all levels.
    Teams will run on us now..

  11. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Someone should asked bowles and this coaching staff one question. Do you feel you where outcoached last night? Do Bowles and leftwich know how to make adjustments during a game? I think Bowles is not head coach material. I kept saying in the offseason have they done enough to improve in the secondary? They brung everyone back that got burned at times last year.

  12. Beej Says:

    I’m not sure how better coaching could have stopped their straight-ahead power running game. They were even blowing Vita off the line

    Damn, hard game to watch. Out coached bad on defense. BL stepped up yesterday and made adjustments. Stopped running it every first down, thank god. Quicker passes and some up tempo. I think giving up some rushing yards is fine as long as you tighten up against the pass and are able to stop the run when it counts (short yardage, end of the game, goal line). But the Bucs couldn’t stop a run, pass or trick play yesterday to save their lives.

    The Bucs, where former good players go to collect one last check before they hit retirement. Play 1/3 of the season and be out injured the rest.

    Litch and company blew it big times this year. Lot of pain ahead when we lose half our team to free agency and are without a quarterback.

    Season over boys. Let’s all just accept it and move on.

    It didn’t have to be this way.

  17. PassingThru Says:

    I call Bull Excrement. The O-Line wasn’t even adequate. Brady was taking snaps in the shot gun, then dropped back an additional steps just to make short passes. Those type of throws are made on 3 step drops. The O-Line is crappy.

  18. BigMacAttack Says:

    Rashad “Ronald Jones Jr.” White needs to stop thinking and just play football. He looks timid to me scared.

  19. Seattle Buc is back in TB Says:

    Leftwich should take some lessons from Eric Bieniemy on rushing play design. A million times more creative than our basic line up and snap the ball offense.

  20. Redeemer Says:

    Brady threw what, 27 passes in a row? Something like that. The Chiefs are doing what seemingly everyone is doing. Two high shell, no big plays. A lot of those completions and yards were garbage. The game was over at halftime, like View said The Chiefs allowed all the underneath stuff.

  21. SOEbuc be Says:

    THE BANDWAGON SHOWING UP BIG TIME JOE!!! 2-2 with close score games against two FHOF QB. Our defense got whipped bad, but the previous three games were lights out and now they’re all over JBF hating like some kinda “Brady hater.”

    One thing for Byron because this running situation of his has been a mess for too long and that’s the truth…CAN VAUGHN GET ONE F#CKING CARRY BYRON?!!! If anyone can find a hole and break out it’s him. Lenny has the power, not the speed and I know RW is four games in but he’s trash up the middle.

  22. Bucs since 76 Says:

    We need to quit trying to make someone a kick / punt returner and find someone who did in college or better yet in the pros then cut Darden

  23. steele Says:

    Film doesn’t lie. The OL has NOT been impressive. Run blocking poor after wk.1. Pass blocking marginal at best, Brady pressured even if he isn’t hit. Not much space or time in the pocket. He has to rush in many instances.

    I don’t see this improving until Jensen is back, D Smith is better and/or they make some moves. They’re letting the young guys get mowed down, and they are paying for it.

  24. Old School Bucs Says:

    All these coaching experts on joebucksfan. At the end of the year I expect to see a lot of coaching applications on the owners desk! With all these experts here the owner will have some hard decisions to make. Especially after this team goes to the superbowl agai!!!
