Look for the Pewter Nation Podcast each week on for your listening pleasure during the 2019 season.

The final score might have said that the Bucs won 13-12, but the starters on offense did not look like a unit that is prepared for week one of the regular season. Head coach Bruce Arians said that the offensive line “got their asses kicked” and the group agreed.

With plenty of discussion on how the offensive line is a big problem for the Bucs, the guys did point out that quarterback Ryan Griffin has earned this second string job despite the injury to Blaine Gabbert.

Along side recapping the full contest, we also look ahead to a couple of roster decisions such as Justin Watson and Andre Ellington, and who will play quarterback for the fourth preseason game since Griffin won’t be. Stay tuned for a fun post game recap.

What I am certain of is that Watford is a lock to make the roster, because sooner or later he is starting on the line at this rate. What I am also certain of is that the Bucs will scoop up two veteran OL as well to join Watford and will be waiting in the wings.

Overpaid OL that can’t play NFL average is not cool. Cappa was confused by the stunting but that isn’t surprising. Veteran OT’s like Dotson and D. Smith being rag dolled is not cool.

Let’s see. I only screamed about drafting OL for the past 3 years. But sure, JL knows better then little ol’ nobody me. I mean all his success and all. I mean it’s so smart to build an offensive team that cant run the ball… or protect the QB. And man all those plays VH3, Noah, and Aguayo have made these past few years. Or Vea, MJ and Carlton. Ronald Jones anyone? Maybe he can block for himself. Just disgustingly mismanaged. And I say I can do a better job than JL and people laugh. Keep drafting kickers and DBs… Read more »

offensive line continues to play poorly and the team does nothing to improve the situation.

I told you guys last year that Nacho was better than McCoy.
