Jesus, stop with the New Orleans game crap.

What, one good deep throw?  That's enough for you hopefools to hang your hat on, but like the realists on this thread, I won't be convinced Grads can throw an accurate deep ball until he does it more than once every three games..



Actually Gradkowksi had  four good deep throws in that game.

Well we will see this Sunday! I hope to god he gets off, I just fear that too many people are quick to grab on to anything that comes along, we'll see, time will tell. Go Grads, Go bucs!!

 ???


Aside from the 52 yard pass to Galloway, he didn't complete anything longer than 23 yards. And Pittman got most of those yards after the catch..

Actually passes over 20 yards are considered deep.   ;)


2-10-NO18 (10:55) B.Gradkowski pass deep left to J.Galloway for 18 yards, TOUCHDOWN.

3-5-TB38 (7:54) B.Gradkowski pass deep left to J.Galloway ran ob at NO 40 for 22 yards.

2-2-TB46 (4:18) B.Gradkowski pass deep right to J.Galloway to NO 2 for 52 yards (J.Bullocks).

1-10-TB35 (4:05) B.Gradkowski pass deep left to J.Galloway pushed ob at NO 47 for 18 yards (F.Thomas).

2-4-NO41(3:24) B.Gradkowski pass deep right to I.Hilliard to NO 3 for 38 yards (M.McKenzie).

Gradkowski 4TD/1 INT

Simms 1TD/7INT


Any questions...

I love Simms, but no one can deny that the passing game has improved dramatically in the turnover department...

Simms went 0-3 and Gradkowski went 2-1.  What does that tell you - Grad is better!

I wouldn't say it makes Grads a better QB.  Just a better fit in this offense, really...

Stats are records don't really tell the whole story.  Simms was stinking up the shop for sure this season, and we have improved since Grads came in.  When you are god damned awful the only way is up, so winning two close games isn't much to hang you hat on just yet.

Simms wasn't suited to the WCO, and Grads seems a very good fit.  He just needs to build on his promising start and he should be just fine.

Gradkowski throws like Shaun King when he throws deep. His trajectory is too high and he's not accurate. He is mobile and decisive. We need a QB that combines the best of Gradkowski with the best of Simms. Rattay is not in contention. That only leaves McCown as a possibility, and we really don't have enough evidence to make a judgement right now. After a few more losses with Gradkowski, I would like to see if McCown can be a better compromise. Simms is as good as gone and Gradkowski is not going to get any stronger.

We could also sign Favre for the next year or two, until we find a QB without an obvious handicap. Right now McCown is the only unknown option.

Too early to make any predictions on Grads, and with coaching his mechanics and timing can be changed to get a little more power on the deep balls.  He has actually thrown some intermediate throws with plenty of zip on them.  If the only thing he is going have missing from his game is a bomb of a deep ball, I think Gruden will live with it.
