    Sure wish Charles Sims was available. I think he’s gonna bring another dimension to our run and pass game. This is the game ASJ steps up….7 catches for 120 and a TD. Hopefully, this is the game where we come out slingin it….this is not the team to be running into Haloti Naga(sp?) over and over. TE’s and Rb’s are gonna have to be heavily involved in passing game, IMO.

    Charles Sims can come back next Monday following the Ravens game and will be allowed to practice with the Bucs for the next two weeks before he is activated according to the rules of IR-to-return.

    He can be activated for the Nov 2nd game with the Browns at which time another player must be released from the 53 man roster.

    As BuccanAy said, it’s tough to run inside against that 350 pound NT so there’s really no point in trying. So when they spell him, that’s when you call those inside run plays. Quick tosses and pitches to the outside should be more effective. The delayed inside handoff we do time after time hasn’t worked yet. Somehow, I think are run plays are being tipped. Our RB’s are getting hit in the backfield for a reason.

    Macabee: I thought Sims’ injury wouldn’t be healed until the middle to end of November in spite of the rule allowing him to return to the field sooner. What’s your recollection?

    “our” not “are” run plays. No way to edit. Don’t want the Language Arts professors patrolling here to gig me.

    scubog,

    Not trying to rush Sims back, referring primarily to the IR rule and when he is eligible to return.

    And yes I do recall that when injured, it was forecast that he would be out 12 to 14 weeks. But if you recall, he was injured at practice on Tuesday August 11. That was almost 4 weeks before the season started. Just speculating, that would put him at week 9 or 10 of the regular season.

    Anyway, as usual I was referring to an update from Rotoworld which I linked below. I want Sims to return when he is fully healed and can contribute!

    It sounds like we are all on the same page that running the ball is not how we’re going to beat these guys. Actually, I don’t think we’re going to beat any team running the ball until we have a 400 yard passing game. Teams are going to stack the box until we prove we can not just beat, but embarrass them passing the ball. I think we have the weapons and pass protecting O-line to do it, but the weapons have to get healthy (Evans, Jackson, AJS) and Glennon has to get more accurate on his deep sideline passes. The weapons should be healthy after the bye week so I expect the passing to increase a lot then.

    I THINK OPPONENTS WILL START RESSPECTING THE PASS MORE IN UP COMING GAMES IF GLENNON KEEPS PLAYING LIKE HE HAS WHICH AT THAT POINT WILL OPEN UP THE RUNNING GAME.
