The Buccaneers came out to play on Sunday, dominating pretty much every statistical category against a young, banged up Redskins team.  The final score of 20-17 doesn’t really show the way the Buc’s controlled the ‘Skins, as the Buc’s got more yards, first downs, and controlled the line of scrimmage.  So here is a Report Card for the Bucs:

 

Quarterbacks: C

            Bruce Gradkowski had an average day, 14 of 21 for 178, 2 TD’s (one on a lucky bounce) and a crucial INT on a drive deep in Redskin territory.  He has shown more and more that he can stand in the pocket and take a hit, and deliver the ball where it needs to be.  Without the early drops by receivers, he would’ve been over 200 yards.

 

Running Backs: B+
            We finally found the A-Train, and he gave us some solid carries early, but failed to punch it in on the goal line.  Cadillac also failed to cross the goal line, but he had his best game this year, topping 100 yards, and he continues his streak.  The Buc’s have never lost when Caddy gets 21 or more carries.

 

Wide Receivers and Tight Ends: C-

            Many different guys got involved catching the ball, but once again, Joey Galloway is the only one who can bust a big play.  Several drops in the game might have cost us in such a close score, and can’t help a young QB’s confidence.

 

Offensive Line:  B

            Pass protection broke down a few times, but they controlled the line on many occasions and helped this team pick up first downs.  The goal line push, however, was depressing.

I agree with the grades, except I think QB should've been a bit higher.  He had rating of 104, was 14/21 with 4 drops, meaning that 66% of his passes were complete and almost 90% were on target.  That's better than a C, I'd say, despite the INT.
