Galloway kicking the goal post after a sure touchdowns says everything; he isn't too happy with his current QB.
that dosent say he isnt happy with our QB, it could sa "there is a bug right here i need to get it before we all get eatin!!"  or  he could have been upset with himself for not catching it, or for the defender batting it down....

either way, our QB has broke recods comming out of college, and will continue to do the same if he get a better QB coach to help him with his weaknesses.....
his arm strenght is there, its just making the ball land in JG's hands one way to prove that is look at his distance on long throws and how low they fly....they zoom in there, pretty flat compared to others who arch the ball more....maybe he should do that....arch it with more of a lead on the reciever...











and to ALL-da-way:

that was a guess for an answer, but what i was getting at with it is the wat he runs super fast to burn the CB's then slows a bit to recieve the ball..........thats what im seeing....just like when Caddy, FINALLY got out of the line on a run, then he slowed down???? he could have burned those big guys and ran it for another 10 yards or so out of the sideline...



Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.

He def doesn't have a strong arm. If he did the Roy Williams Pick wouldn't have happend and Galloway would have scored. I have watched and rewatched the plays, the throws are not late, they just get there late because of arm strength. The Bucs will never consistently stretch the field with Gradkowski.

Grad's passes look like Brad Johnsons I can throw a better spiral than Grad's.

I've been using the BJ comparison lately, and its especially evident when Grads goes through his progression. Many of you boo Gruden when on 3rd and 13 Gradkowski throws a check down to Pitt. Brad would do the same thing (except for the fact that Brad was 100x more accurate).

Grad will be a servicable backup. but he is no way the future QB of this team.

Don't bad mouth BJ----without him we don't have the Lombardi.  Do you remember the Chicago game he didn't play cuz of cracked ribs?  We won that 1 with D & Grammatica.

Guys, Grads has a decent arm.  Not a great one, not the best.  A bit on the weak side by NFL standards no doubt, but within the range he needs to be successful.  There is a ton of stuff rookies need to work on, and it will be worked on.

By all rights, this guy should be getting mauled out there every play.  He should be by FAR the worst looking rookie out there.  His stats should be awful.  He should be getting eaten alive.  Even if you don't see anything you like in him, just the fact that he's hanging in there and not signifigantly different than the 2 rd 1 QBs there now, should tell you he has SOMETHING working for him...

And God knows it's not a great recieving corps or o-line

You need arm strength and accuracy to be successful.  Bruce may be able to get the ball downfield far enough but that's usually when he just rears back and wings it.  Then the accuracy suffers.  He just doesn't have the natural arm strength.  Doesn't mean he can't get it done but he can't make Favre like improvisations and have any strength and accuracy downfield.

Gruden when on 3rd and 13 Gradkowski throws a check down to Pitt. .

It is called the west coast offense .  Please learn the game of football.

Some of this has to go back to the OC. Galloway is our best threat, Grads is our best QB (no matter what you think of him at this moment in time it is true). Grads can't reliably hit Galloway on passes his brain tells him are there. You have to find other ways to get Galloway the ball in places where Grads' strengths are amplified. The short cross for RAC options shuold be basic of any old school WCO. Why isn't that in there? Grads would be fine on that sort of option, we still keep Galloway involved and hopefully produce more consistent results.


Galloway is getting old and he is on two bad knees, so slants and changes of direction are not his strong suit, and neither is catching in traffic.  Basically Joey is a one trick pony at this stage of his career, a GREAT vertical threat but nothing else.

Galloway has shown he will drop passes or not even attempt to catch passes going over the middle.  We all know he is more like a #2 WR but he is technically the #1 WR for this team but like MJS said Galloway will be what he mainly has always been about.  He will catch some short passes no doubt but asking him to make his living over the middle will not happen.
