    Not much to say about this game; it showed where we are weak in the back up positions, especially at QB. No pass rush from our starters like all pre season so far, but 3 of the starters were out on Defense. So we have 2 touchdowns after 3 games; glad it’s pre season. Go Bucs!

    I don’t feel bad considering I just watched a game mostly between future short order cooks and UPS drivers…….in bad weather at that! Just kidding. Some good, some bad. Coach Koetter seems to think this team has more quality depth than any in the 3 years he’s been here. I didn’t see that tonight, but they’ve got two week to torque wrench a few bolts down. So I’m still optimistic.

    It appeared to me that the Browns were more interested in winning this game(?) than the Bucs. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many blitzes in a preseason contest.

      I’d like to see the numbers to confirm it but from what I have seen the Bucs D blitzed quite a bit this preseason. Far more than I would have liked because it helps other teams learn our blitzes. Remember last week when we had a few guys come in unblocked against the Jags? We don’t have the type of LB’s and safeties that can beat blockers with their strength or speed when the offense knows where they are coming from. This is the 2nd year in M. Smith’s defense that the league has seen for a long time. But he tweaks his blitzes a bit from year to year and I would have rather seen us save those for the regular season.
