    There’s more than that after that complete beating. At this point I’m for making sure these guys are all healed before they play again. Go Bucs!

      BTW, I like the signing of Ward because he is better than anything we had at safety, but he was nursing an injury when he was with the Broncos, is part of the reason they released him. I think his leg is going to be a lingering issue this season, but hopefully he fully recovers for next season. To me Ward’s signing highlights what a disappointment J. Evans has been so far.

    the injuries were just starting to get comical today. With the list of players not playing to start, let alone got injured, this was a worst case scenario.
    A strange day of football all around today in the league. Ofcourse te Falcons would get a call that would slow them to win, seems to always benefit them. But guys the rest of his division is down. The saints still don’t have a defense and can look absolutely horrible. Hope these injuries don’t linger as having no buy week is something we al knew would haunt us at some point.

      I think the hope is to sit some of these guys for some games and give them a chance to heal, while hopefully still winning enough games to eventually make the playoffs. Can we outscore our opposition enough to overcome an injury riddled defense? I don’t know…hope so, but I don’t like the pressure it puts on Jameis. If not, we should at least find out if some of these guys that we think have so much potential can step up and play like defenders or inadequate backups?

    It’s early, but no bye week and this amount injuries, and to key players after 2 games is not not a good sign for rest of season. Sucks really. Had high hopes for Joe season but this is not a deep team and that showed today. I still think we are weak at DE too. Nobody that can really apply pressure. Oh we see what happens next week. Bad day for sure.

    No one has said it yet…so I will. Horse collars, head shots to Brate, Evans and Humphrey…questionable low blocks…offensive pass interference. Sure Minnesota had fewer penalties….because they wouldn’t call them on the Vikings. Time for full time refs….these guys were bad jokes and should be fired. And they are in fact, detrimental to the league, because if they allow these kind of hits, Pro Football will be following in Professional Boxing’s footsteps. What good are they if they don’t protect the integrity of the game?

      How the head shots weren’t called today is beyond me. Especially the one with Brate. The guy literally jumped into his head. The officials were absolutely poor today.

      A lot of bad calls and non-calls in that game, most in favor of the Vikes. Seemed like the DBs were interfering on most throws to our receivers.
