    Tonight (Tuesday) I’m watching WR Corey Davis/Western Michigan at Ball State. Davis is a deep ball threat the Bucs should take a long look at in the 2017 draft!

    You want explosive plays, ya gotta have explosive players!

    Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck was Bucs WR coach under Schiano in 2012. Bundle of energy – fun to watch!

    Agreed with Coach Smith that without pressure by the front seven, the back four are eventually going to get hammered. Especially when the other team has a couple of very skilled, very big receivers being covered by our little guys in the back. The week before, our backfield looked like heroes, but the front seven were gettin’ it done. Then against the Raiders, Carr had all the time he needed to pick us apart in the second half and the OT. We had the same issue last season, with poor pressure by the line and yet most of the blame for the 70+% pass completion rate by Bucs opponents was laid at the feet of the backfield. Not that we had no issues with the backfield at all, but when the front seven, and particularly the D line is doing their job it makes everybody look good.
