Agreed. We could have all the pass rush in the world...it wouldn't matter if the offense can't sustain any sort of a drive.

the funny thing is that we were overly cautious with him last year due to his knee and now it sounds like we are being really aggressive with his rehab this time around. very risky.

Maybe. However, what stories the media runs with, might not paint an accurate picture of how the staff plans move forward with Bowers.

I have all the faith in the world in our medical staff. If they let him play, it will be because he is ready.

I agree. If he was truly feeling good and confident about getting back on the field this season, he would not have said that.

We tend to read a little too much in to what these guys are saying.  They're NFL players, not politicians.

The decision resides between the GM and the physicians.  Not the coaches.

"If they feel like they want to save me, I’m fine with that either way.”

This tells me he is not ready. If he felt ready to be on the field, I don't think he would have worded his statement like that. \

Agree. Also doesnt make me feel good that all of this is coming out after Clayborns injury. Coincidence??

The fact that they aren't politicians makes them much easier to read. When he says he's ok with waiting till next season if they want to save him....that sounds like he isn't very sure about playing any time soon.

If we aren't playing 500 ball when they decide to bring him back I'm not sure it's worth the risk unless he's better than 100%.

If the staff didn't think there was at least a shot of him playing in the second half, they would of IR'd him already. I think we see him in action some, in the second half.

Not sure if our staff checks out potential draft picks because everyone on the d line that dom picked is made of glass.

I read it more like Bowers has had several discussions with team about it and is well aware of his situation. Either they shelve him for next year, or play him this year..

Who knows....





It is a new day in TAMPA BAY!    GO BUCS!!
