on 4th an 1.5 yards, you move Donald Penn to Center, Trueblood to right guard, and Chris Carter at left guard, and you QB sneak up the middle and hope for the best.  Those are the three biggest guys we have.  If Garcia cant squeeze out 1 measly yard then dont bother playing in the NFL.   Calling two play action passes from the two yard line is so typical of the Bucs, that even Carolina knew it was coming.  just get the freaking two yards, you have 4 tries to do it.   if you fail, then you got Carolina on their own 1/2 yard line.

This is like the back up QB is always better argument ... if Garcia does what he is supposed to do and hits Smith in the numbers and Smith catches it ... there's no complaining ... they didn't so now it's a bad play call ...
But you have to call plays to players' strengths, and throwing touchdown passes is not Garcia's strength anymore than catching jump balls in Darren Sproles' strength.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Dude were trying to keep his frail azz in the pocket.  Now you wanna run him up the middle? [banghead]

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!
