Chris Godwin Gets “100 Percent” Label

November 17th, 2022

Great chatter from Todd Bowles!

After watching the film of Sunday’s impressive Bucs victory, head coach Todd Bowles didn’t hold back when talking about the progress Chris Godwin 11 months after blowing out his knee (ACL) and 10 games of the regular season.

“He looks 100 percent now,” Bowles told the Buccaneers Radio Network. “He’s out there doing everything he [was] doing before he got hurt and you’re just happy to see it.”

Godwin had one of his best games of the season Sunday, with 6 catches for 71 yards and his first touchdown of the year, and he looked a step more explosive.

With a bye week here, the great news on Julio Jones  and Mike Evans on the cusp of history, the Bucs receiving corps is in outstanding shape.

What next? Russell Gage’s hamstring healing and Scotty Miller stopping his kangaroo jumps?

    And OBJ’s injury happened a couple months after Godwin’s

  2. SteveK Says:

    Lmao, kangaroo jumps for Scotty- hood one Joe.

    I think of Dr. Evil, “Scotty, No.”

  3. GABucsFan Says:

    kangaroo jumps, now that is funny, but accurate.

  4. D-Rok Says:

    In Scotty’s defense, the dude has leaps. Wonder if they have ever tried him out on fades/jump balls? He can elevate for a short quick guy.

    Godwin looks pretty good to the eye test. Perfect timing!!!

    GO BUCS!!!

  5. Redeemer Says:

    It was always going to take time. Too bad they didn’t understand that, and played him week one. If him and Julio can stay healthy, bucs could be very dangerous in the playoffs..

  6. SPARKY Says:

    I don’t care if Scotty jumps, just hang on to the ball when he comes down.

  7. Casual Observer Says:

    We’re getting the band back together. As an elite a corps of WRs ever seen. Just watch.

  8. SPARKY Says:

    Actually, Scotty has come up pretty big the last two games. With our fragile receivers it’s nice to have him around. And he really is our only deep threat unless Julio keeps going.

  9. David Says:

    We have the quality receivers, the GOAT, White running the ball, the offense is in great shape
    We need a dangerous return man for kickoffs, a Devin Hester type that can light em up and put a spark in the team
    Go Bucs
    We got to stack the wins now

  10. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Scotty looked like a sniper got him.

  11. BucU Says:

    Russell who? Never heard of him.

  12. Allen Lofton Says:

    Scotty needs a kangaroo kick in the Grong to stop jumping needily and missing after catch yards

  13. Irishmist Says:

    If the NFL schedules us for a game in Australia we should be all set.

  14. SB Says:

    I agree with KentuckyBuc.
    I told my son it looked like I had just shot him with a .50 cal from 1,500 yards.

    I really needed that laugh 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣😂

    TNF aaron Jones runs–reminds me of Jordan Whitehead blowing this kid all the way up. NFC championship game , aaron Jones sidelined after a couple Whitehead tackles caused a fumble–what a huge loss losing Jordan Whitehead–he was solid.

  17. Buccos Says:

    Scotty just assumes that he will be overthrown. He forgets he is playing with the GOAT

  18. Goatfarmer Says:

    Too bad 100% of Todd is 45% of a real head coach.

  19. Ed McSherry Says:

    When Scottie’s targets can seen as comedy relief, that’s when you know the team’s playing well.

    I’ve been post here for a couple of years or so under “Ed,” but recently there’s another poster using “Ed;” so I’m adding a last name (Ed McSherry) to prevent “confusion in representation” of submitted-posts.

    Usually the software of a site won’t allow two posters using the exact same name, but I guess this one does.

    Great! Maybe now Godwin’s knees will quit buckling every time Brady throws one his way. And kangaroo Miller will quit jumping every time Brady throws one his way. Never seen anything like it. Brady’s head must be exploding trying to win a super bowl with these characters.

  21. Defense Rules Says:

    Goatfarmer … ‘Too bad 100% of Todd is 45% of a real head coach.’

    I’m thinking you might want to go to bed earlier Goatfarmer so you don’t write little quips like that. Dual-hatting most head coaches is the kiss of death IMO. Not letting them pick their own staffs falls into the same category far as I’m concerned. And injuries are never an excuse, but they can be a reason for tough times IF your team lacks experienced DEPTH like ours has up to this point.

    Todd’s got this defense playing at a high level right now (#3 ranking allowing 18.3 PPG), and actually playing quite consistently on the season despite injuries. IF you disregard the 41-point Chiefs game, we’ve averaged 15.4 PPG in those other 9 games, which would rank us as the #1 defense well ahead of current leader Denver BTW.

    I’m hopeful that the offense is coming around & starting to gel now that some of our key starters (like Godwin & Julio) are getting healed up, BUT … we’re still just 5-5 at this point, with 4-6 Falcons on our tail. This team isn’t good enough to put it on cruise control & relax. Tom Brady has made a career of getting his teams to peak at the right time. Hopefully he’s got 1 more in him.

  22. Proudbucsfan Says:

    Scottie “Scooter” Miller has no confidence in his own hands is the reason he’s jumping and cradling the ball. He has always tried to cradle the ball most catches

  23. orlbucfan Says:

    DR, +27 on your comment as usual. Sometimes, I think Gf’s goats stole what’s left of his brains ‘cept goats aren’t meat eaters. I’m going to harp on this, but ever since LVD called that meeting, Bucs have won both games. With Hicks back in, VV and JTS are balling. So’s White. Glad Ungodly CG14 is getting back to his old (!) self. ME13 is banged up, and needs the supporting cast. I hope the cheap shot by the Aints that knocked Ungodly out taught this smart player to watch out for that crap. One game at a time, and thank the football gods for the Bye Week!

    I will never understand the Joes love for scotty miller. Dude is a bust and is still living of the high of the NFC championship game TD he had. With that said great pun btw of him and those ridiculous jump catches. Only the Bucs seem to acquire trash like this. #ItsABucsLife
