    I would much rather see the Bucs resign Brawlin Hawley at Smith’s numbers and cut or trade Smith.

      Me too. I like Hawley’s spunk. For Horse’s sake I hope Gottschalk fares better with Panphile at his side in this game if he gets the nod at center. I want to see if he can match up physically since he’s under 300 pounds.

    If we beat KC that would be a huge win. I am not expecting a win I am just hoping we can keep it competitive and Jameis balls out again.

    I like our chances at KC if our defense of Sunday is still there against KC, and if Doug Martin is anywhere near 100% (he said he was at 90% just before the Bears game). The best offense in a road game is a strong running game and a strong defense. Jameis will still get his passing game going regardless, with the receivers he’s got now.

    Funny how so many commenters here on this site were down on Gottchalk after the Bears game, his first NFL start in a big home win and a strong offensive performance. Obviously you have a different view, Scott … and in fact, so does Coach Koetter, who strongly praised Gottchalk yesterday in his presser. He wasn’t so high on Benenoch’s play. For a third stringer center in his very first NFL game, I thought Gottchalk did very well. The fact that Jameis got sacked four times is not unusual – he’s taken a lot of sacks this year, partly due to O-line issues and also partly because he often holds onto the ball too long.

    The best way to reduce the number of sacks on Winston is for him and Koetter to start using a lot more quick, three step drops and short passes to keep the ball moving while tiring out the pass rushers. And run the ball more often than we have been lately with our depleted running back corps. Then as the defenders start to get gassed, let’em have it on the longer pass plays.

      Another factor associated with Winston holding onto the ball too long is that also exacerbates our issues with holding calls.
