    Those are good defensive numbers when you already know what they are going to do????

      It OBJ man, most defenses can’t stop him regardless of knowing his routes, he’s one of the best WRs in TJ league. The Bucs did about as well as you can hope for against him.

    I think he is playing great. He is just getting bad press because Mike Smith has them giving the WRs a lot of space pre snap because he knows they have no pass rush

      But if there was a lack of pass rush, wouldn’t you want you DB’s pressing at the LOS to disrupt timing and give your the line another second to get to the QB? I just hope Mike Smith doesn’t catch the Lovie and remain stubborn and doesn’t adjust this because Brady and Co. will feast on that much real estate being given up.

        I do not disagree that playing the DB’s so far off is clearly not working. I am only saying that I think Hargreaves is doing the best he can with the task he is being given.

    Well, they threw the ball pretty damn well and we never sniffed an interception…so I am pretty terrified to see what happens tonight if we don’t know the Patriots receivers routes before they run them.

    The headline reads like this is some sort of scandal. But it’s just that the Bucs coaches and players did the kind of homework we’d expect any team to do. I’m pretty sure this is standard for everyone.

    A non-story story.

      I do think it was a good job by the coaching staff to know what the Giants were going to do offensively, but I think it’s a story because I agree with Bucco63 and BrianDorry55. What happens when we play an offense and don’t know what they’re going to do? We knew what they were doing for the most part on offense and barely won…at home.

        I also don’t know how well the coaching advantage will carry going forward because according to other websites the Giants offense has been predictable going back to the end of last season.

    Hargreaves played poorly in my opinion, how bad will he play when he does not know the routes?

    I haven’t been as hard on Vernon as most as CB in the NFL as a rookie is TOUGH. And we did him no favors last year. However-I watched Showtime’s Inside the NFL last night and saw their coverage of the Bucs game this weekend. After a TD drive, Eli is celebrating with his offense on the sidelines and smiling like a kid on Christmas then says “we’re attacking 28 ALL DAY!”. That’s when I knew-we’ve got a problem. If you haven’t seen the footage-I recommend checking it out
