Not only did the secondary improve from this simplification/practice, but the dline improved. You know the Dline got much more sacks than usual; but, I’m thinking they also improved due to this simplification.

We lost one starter; but, we’re likely to gain another – at linebacker

I was saying “go for the two point conversion” in the first half tds.

Use the kicker for the kickoffs, and two point coversion for the extra point after a Td. Betcha we make more than not.

One more thought(I think) – an interesting Qb to compare with Winston – Blake Borttles. Bortles was drafted a year ahead of Winston. I mean, “who would you rather have?” It’s Jamies hands down.

Good podcast, y’all.
I predict Bucs pick a QB in the first three rounds of next year’s draft. Time for some insurance or maybe more.

Impressed with the level of effort – basically a shutout in the first half and the first 9 points by the Browns were off the offense. Hopefully the medical reports on Kwon reveal less than a torn ACL. Would be a tremendous loss. Still need a kicker, the “redemption” didn’t matter as he created his own drama. Winston was what he is, an average quarterback – better than half the league, but 20 million?? QB has to be a point of emphasis in the draft – unless he increases 25% plus the rest of the season or becomes the second… Read more »

One more thought – I’m thinking the Bucs don’t do nearly as many screens to slow down the passrush at the beginning of games – like the Patriots do.

The jury is in! Winston’s “fatal flaw” is his decision making. He has demonstrated this consistently over his NFL career so far. He lacks something in his internal makeup, something intangible, and that something is also called judgment. Over his college and professional he has consistently demonstrated bad judgment off the field as well. We have been waiting for him to grow up for four years now. The question is what are his quarterbacks coach and/or his head coach doing for him as a professional quarterback? Someone needs to “jump down his throat”. Someone needs to come down hard on… Read more »

I like you guys. Sound like a lot of fun to have beer with and talk football. Nevertheless, you guys contradicted A LOT in today’s podcast. You can’t call the Cleveland Brown defense THE BEST IN THE NFL in takeaways, which is fact… that means they are the most opportunistic defense in the NFL so far this year… you can’t say that and then mock them as the Browns being the same old Browns OR be hyper-critical of Winston’s turnovers. That’s just too much paradox, guys. Too much contradiction in your judgments. Our team deserves all the credit in the… Read more »

Trevor, you forget the fumble by Brate, the strip sack bc of Smith, the drop by Howard, his multiple scrambling and making throws, his 4/4 on the last drive for a winning FG. An average kicker makes a 40 yd FG, an extra point and we are not even talking about the mistakes in overtime.

Trevor, let me ask you a question. How many QBs in this league can consistently throw 50+ times a game, with not threat of a running game, when the defense knows you are going to pass, with a suspect OL, and not make one turnover? JP Peterson said on his show today, when Winston throws 35 times or less the Bucs are 9-2. That means in those games, they had a running game, the Defense played well, Winston is not playing from behind. Why on multiple occasions, 2nd and 4, they go 5 wide without a RB in the backfield.… Read more »
