Flyin’ Zyon

November 30th, 2022

Excellent hustle.

This site should be 100 percent, 24 posts a day through the weekend about one of the biggest NFL coaching crimes Joe has ever witnessed when Bucs coaches fully gave away a key win in Cleveland (one of a few giveaways this year).

Right now there is nothing more important than Joe doing his watchdog effort to make sure this is not a repeat crime and the likely final year of having the greatest quarterback in NFL history flushed down the toilet — which the Bucs are very much in danger of doing.

The word “irresponsible” doesn’t begin to describe what is happening.

However, just to demonstrate Joe’s not a fully bitter man over the current state of the Bucs, here’s something wild that shows the athletic ability of Bucs rookie defensive back Zyon McCollum.

Yeah, McCollum isn’t reliable as a starting corner. Hey, he was a third-day draft pick from Sam Houston State. It takes time, grasshopper.

Pete Damilatis of NBC Sports got a video clip from All-22 of McCollum covering on a Bucs kickoff last Sunday. It’s one of the wildest videos Joe has ever seen.

McCollum is run off the field completely. In fact, McCollum is fortunate he didn’t run over Browns player(s) on the bench he was driven off the field so far. That didn’t stop McCollum from racing through the Browns’ bench area, well out of bounds, getting back on the field and damn near making a tackle at the Browns-20 before running the returner out of bounds.

You have to be some stud athlete to pull that off and McCollum sure is.

This is one of the most athletic plays you will ever see. Props to McCollum for not giving up on the play, and instead making a helluva stop.

That’s playing with heart and fire, man!

    Sadly that’s the best highlight of the game. Todd Bowles shat all over the place. Fire him now.

    I forgot I had this JBF page bookmarked. I saved it because I knew BL sucked. Bowles, I thought, would have done ok but looks like I was wrong about that.
    Most of these takes are truly ridiculous and did not age well at all.

    Nice. I saw a few other great plays but the end of the game took a whole lot away.

  4. Defense Rules Says:

    Must be missing something. What I saw was an inexperienced rookie take himself out of the play at the very start by taking himself out of bounds in the first 3 steps. I’m surprised at the Browns’ sideline players for allowing him to get through.

  5. SoFloBuc Says:

    Isn’t there a rule about that? I thought it was how many yard do you have to be back in before you can make a play on the ball after running out of bounds?

    Our punt coverage is woeful, but just a tad better than our KO return

    Armstrong is the worst special teams coach of all time

    How about we get a reel of Darden avoiding all physical contact on every return he has ever made?

    This team is a joke right now

  7. BucU Says:

    Great effort Zyon. That’s all I could muster here.
    Todd Bowles and BL have destroyed this team.
    Straight up.

  8. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    He got lucky that probably should have been a penalty. Good hustle though.

  9. Chuckstutz Says:

    Sure would like to see him as a returner!

    Can dardens scared ass.

  10. Mickman Says:

    The rule is best effort and most direct route back on the field. So yes there is a rule against someone staying OB and coming back in later to make a play. In his case he came back as soon as possible.

    The kid is going to be a good player for us….

  12. NEfan Says:

    He did what he was told to do, play conservative.

  13. Goatfarmer Says:

    Brian Flores or Eric Bienemy.

  14. matthew veal Says:

    Kid made the effort. Coaches need to learn that from him

  15. Winky Says:

    So that we might chronicle and recall this “crime” in future years, let’s give it a name.

    Brown stain.
