No love for the defense on here?

Wow, unreal. The defense held it down today. One TD and 2 FG's for a team with an excellent offense. Carson didn't look comfortable for much of the game and that's attributed to this defense. They were flying to the ball, making sure tackles (except Bolden's wiff on C Johnson), and putting hats on the ball. Loved the energy today and hope it continues....

JasonOfthetower:
Definitely love for the D. FINALLY. We saw some old fashion Buccaneer defense out there today. They tackled well, they got some pressure on Palmer, they stuffed the run. The only thing they didn't do was cause turnovers...dropped three picks today (2 by Bolden)

DanTurksGhost:
Defense played very well, with a few exceptions. Very stout against the run. The three dropped INTs were disappointing, it could have given the young QB a short field to operate on, which could have made the game less close than it was. Credit the offense for helping the defense, too. They controlled the TOP, which any defender will tell you is critical to allowing them to play at a high level.

All good points.  Still a few missed tackles, which was frustrating, and missed turnover opportunities, but definitely back on the right track.

karen anderson:
Maybe they need to be called out more often!

OpTiOnMaStA:
When they get pressure on the opposing QB and they stop missing very makable tackles then they will get love from me.

They played a much improved football game today but I refuse to lower my expectations of this group. It isn't fair to them, and this game was still not up to par.

Boid Fink:
Gradkowski won the game for the Bucs. (sarcasm). ::)

Exactly, KeeponBucn.  I agree with your topic. ;D

He did throw the winning TD pass, on fourth down, no less. So that has to count for SOMETHING, unless you're a Simms apologist.

OpTiOnMaStA:
It was a great team effort today. The team won, not any individual players. Our QB came through, our OL came through, and our defense came through when they needed to. It was really a great team effort and team victory.

Why does it have to be one or the other? If Grads played that great of a game the Bucs wouldn't have been in that position.

I'm not discounting Grads play, I love the way he operated this offense AGAIN. Clayton wasn't even the 1st option on that play. Just because a Buc fan says Grads played average, for a rookie in his 2nd game it wasn't average, doesn't mean they're a Simms whore.....
