PewterReport.com and Westshore Financial present the Pewter Nation Podcast, a weekly audio hour of news, analysis and inside scoop on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers delivered with a dose of humor and insight from Bucs beat writers Scott Reynolds, Mark Cook, Trevor Sikkema, Taylor Jenkins and Matt Matera, who also serves as the show’s producer. Look for the Pewter Nation Podcast each week on PewterReport.com for your listening pleasure during the 2019 season.

In a special edition of the Pewter Nation Podcast right before New Year’s Eve, we are joined by two great guests. The first guest, which this entire podcast revolves around, is Bucs starting right tackle Demar Dotson! The other guest on the show is the host of the former What The Buc Podcast, Derek Fournier.

With the season over, Dotson is now an unrestricted free agent. Does he want to keep playing or does he plan to retire? If he keeps playing, would he like to stay with the Bucs? Dotson tells us all about how he feels about his future playing days for 2020.

Dotson has a ton of great stories over his years playing for the Bucs, and tells one hilarious story about his first couple days of practice as an undrafted free agent. He has another great one about one of the toughest players he’s had to block against in game, and the toughest teammate to play against in practice.

It wouldn’t be a Bucs related show if there wasn’t a discussion about Bruce Arians and Jameis Winston. Dotson broke down what makes Arians different then the other coaches that he’s had here, and expressed how much he liked playing for him this season. Dotson described the players and coaches relationship as a family atmosphere. When it comes to Winston, Dotson tells us how teammates truly felt about him in the locker room, and if he thinks Winston will be back next season. Stay tuned to find out his thoughts in the new Pewter Nation Podcast.

  1. Demar is really one of the good guys that has endured a lot of losing. I hope he is back for another year if at least to mentor any rookie tackle and hopefully a play off bound team.

  2. Good pod guys. Nice to hear Grizz and Matt_69 make some salient points towards the end there…

    This captured our, as a fan base’s, perplexed feelings towards the Jameis dilemma very well. WTF are we going to do except buckle in and ride it out on the FO’s decisions in the off season? This off season, and next year, are going to be wild as fans.

    Cookie. Glad to hear you somewhat back to Earth, giving some valid reasons JW should be cut some slack on this ATL game. It was weird hearing you go Rambo on him a week or two ago…

    Regardless, go Bucs!

  3. In other news, the final NFL ranking of Quarterbacks in the 2019 season came out today. Guess where Winston finished with his QBR? I will give you a hint – it was in the bottom 10 of starters.

    He was 7th from last – with an 84.3. In comparison, Ryan Tannenhill was #1 with a 117.5. Also, the hated Mitch Trubisky had an 83.7 – or only 0.6 points behind Winston. Yes, Winston threw for over 5000 yards and 30 TDs, but all those pick 6s and interceptions doomed him to be one of the worst rated QBs in the NFL this year. The others doing worse were the Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen (80.0), Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (78.8), Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton (78.3), Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins (76.1), and Steelers quarterback Devlin Hodges (71.4).

    What about the QB the Bucs let go – Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick? Well, he did better than Winston playing most of the games in Miami this year. He had an (85.5) and cost a lot less. Not saying they should have kept him but the Bucs really don’t have a starter on the roster it appears. I bet the tape proves that to Arians and we are looking at someone else next year behind the center. At the absolute most we get a very short contract with Winston if they cannot get a QB they want.

  4. Stats are for losers bro. Your not even coming close to comparing apples to apples with what other QBs are asked to do compared to Winston. So your point is Tannehill and Trubisky are better because they have higher QB rating never mind they are throwing short easy passes and not pushing ball down field? I sure wouldn’t take either over Winston but your entitled you your opinion and stats.

    • You are entitled to your opinion of course. The stats generally speaking show which quarterbacks are efficient, and which ones are not. You don’t see people clamoring to keep the bottom quarterbacks do you?

      Winston is an oddity for sure, but he was penalized heavily in the QBR because his rate of turnovers is unheard of in modern football (after 2000). By the way, Tannenhill who you say ” throwing short easy passes and not pushing ball down field” you could not be more mistaken. Who has the highest yards per pass in the NFL? Tannenhill. His longest pass per game completed? Here is the list.
      Against Yards
      Houston 51 yards
      New Orleans 41 yards
      Houston 60 yards
      Oakland 91 yards
      Indianapolis 40 yards
      Jacksonville 65 yards
      Kansas City 52 yards
      Carolina 35 yards
      Tampa Bay 26 yards (ironically, only two games were his longest pass less than 30 yards)
      LA Chargers 38 yards
      Denver 25 yards

      These were not all a dump off pass and than run for another 40 yards or more. He executed in all levels of the game. The difference with Tannenhill this year is he had a line to give him time (something he never had in Miami) and he did not get hurt. When he was not hurt in Miami, he was fairly effective. Not being hurt with the Titans he had a career year.

      With the Tribisky you are correct – he is totally a dink and dunk player and I won’t argue that point. However you generalized and with Tannenhill – particularly this year – he was not that at all. The Titans weakness is not their quarterback anymore with him back there. Their weakness is their coverage unit. The team with the worst coverage in the playoffs would be the Texans however. They picked up Vernon Hargraves III off of waivers and he has been as ineffective as ever there as he was in Tampa. A total of 21 tackles in 6 games. A total of 2 passes defended. A total of 7 TDs given up. Everyone in Tampa should have celebrated when he was cut.

    • One more comment – to show I am not making up Tannenhill being a deep ball passer, here is what Yardbreaker printed today on him:

      Ryan Tannehill, Titans

      What he does best:Big plays

      Since Tannehill took over for the ineffective Marcus Mariota in Week 7, the offense went from mundane to explosive. Tannehill has developed an excellent rapport with rookie receiver A.J. Brown, often hitting him in stride and watching him run away from a defense. Brown has 778 receiving yards (20.5-yard average) in games with Tannehill, who a great athlete and can break big runs on his own.

  5. Dotson is such a cool dude, you can just tell he’s a genuine, good person.

    I hope he’s got some more in the tank because I’d love to see him back in Tampa and retire as a Buc. If not, I hope he goes to a team that has a shot to win and a fat check for him.

    He’s been one hell of a good football player for Tampa and I believe he’s been underrated And underpaid his entire career.

    Thank you Demar, we appreciate you more than you probably know.
