    I was going you guys how Anger was doing in camp. Apparently, pretty good.

    Winston looked good, but he targeted Evans too much. Very solid first drive, but he blew the touchdown by trying to force it to Evans. Then again, he and Evans need to get that play down, so practicing it in a game might be a good thing.

      I also think those uncreative fades had something to do with it being the preseason and the team not wanting to show much on film. i.e. They did some good things to move the ball down the field. It being preseason, there isn’t anything to be particularly gained from actually scoring 7 instead of 3, so you just toss a couple no thought jump balls and take the TD if it comes, but don’t sweat it if it doesn’t. I have a feeling our red zone offense will be incredibly deadly this season, and it won’t be because of an endless stream of Evans fade routes. But why show anything we’d like to use in that area of the field later? There’s no upside in it, really.

    Where was Chris Godwin? One catch? Was he targeted more than that? Seems like you guys expected him to get a lot of attention, and he didn’t seem to be in the script much.

    Winston’s focus on Evans is understandable, however, how do the coaches evaluate other receivers if Winston does not throw to them. Chris Godwin, Brate and Howard were ignored. Disappointing game plan and the Bucs seemed flat and unimpressed. Bad sign for a team with high expectations…looked like the old Bucs to me.
