Maybe you're thinking about flag football?[/size]

Today's NFL is the same thing.


What are the important positions in the NFL?

4. Realize guards don't matter

A guy on a message board says they don't matter, but coaches that get millions to make decisions spend draft picks and big contracts on them. Hmm... Who to trust?

Outdated philosophies. And I get paid to make football decisions too. Big ones.
Everyone, introducing Mr. Matt Millen.

I think we are in great shape with our des. We have clayborn, who has proven to be around a 7 sack guy on the left, where possibly he will be going against lesser tackles. We have MJ, who is proven to at least lovie, and is a pretty complete player. And then we have the two potential guys in means and gholston.  Throw in a hustle guy like Solomon, or a guy like sutton for competition and we are in a good position this year imo.

I keep hearing good things about sutton.

JBF / Yasinka's POV...

Historically, the Bucs have been just miserable in returning kickoffs for a score. When was the last time you heard of a team going 31 years without a touchdown on a kick return?

That was the case with the Bucs. The franchise went 31 years (and damned near 32) without a kickoff return for a touchdown. The drought was finally snapped when “Run Michael run” Spurlock broke through with a 90-yard return for a score at home against Atlanta, Dec. 16, 2007.

To date, the Bucs have taken just four kickoffs to the end zone, and Spurlock has half of those. The last return for a touchdown was when then-rookie Sammie Stroughter burned the Chiefs in 2009.

In a borderline desperate attempt to get points off of a kick return, ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas notes the Bucs are trying out just about anyone on the roster to solve this franchise plague.

Speaking of kickoff returns, it looked like the Bucs were auditioning half their roster Monday. When the Bucs worked on that area, eight different players took turns lining up as return men. In addition to Demps, Eric Page, Chris Owusu, Charles Sims, Solomon Patton, Skye Dawson, Robert Herron and Lavelle Hawkins took turns returning kicks. Page held the job last year, but the Bucs clearly are looking at all alternatives.

Joe is confident that Bucs coach Lovie Smith would love to have Jeff Demps return kicks. Demps has made two of the highlight plays of training camp thus far with his Olympic speed. But there is a problem: Demps is still having ball security issues. For every splash play he has made in camp, he puts the ball on the ground a couple of times.

If Lovie trusted Demps as a return man, then he wouldn’t be trying out half the team as a kick return guy. On kickoff returns, if you cannot hang on to the ball, you are all but giving teams — at best — an easy field goal shot.

Even Joe knows giving away easy points often leads to losses in close games, especially against good teams.

Those of you who stood up for JFF claiming he's a winner and a playmaker and will be the next great NFL QB are as blind as the GM, scouts, coaches who think that TB's hands are to small even though he's never show a problem throwing or holding onto the football. You all get exactly what you deserve. I'll sit here and smile.

Smile for what? A few days into training camp? LMAO.

I don't care what either one does since they're not Bucs. But you might want to wait a little bit before before doling out crow.

Exactly.

From reports I've seen, drops are pandemic.  All of them need to towel off or hit the jugs machine...

I appreciate a report like this , unlike Alldaway who just decided he would see what he could complain about.

Stop complaining about his complaints.
