I love watching Grimes! The first play to OJ Howard, Grimes is outside on Godwin and hurdles a safety to stay in the pursuit.

We got “someone young” and let Donald Penn go to Oakland and more Pro Bowls. I hope Dotson has his first Pro Bowl year, myself, with “someone young” ready to step in if there is an injury.
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, Cover 3: Are Yards After Catch Mandatory For WR Evans In Bucs Offense? 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Sixth on that list is a great place to be. Remember, he has “fixed” his problem with dropped passes. Also, remember that Winston was throwing the ball with an injured shoulder for much of last year. If he has to slow down or stop to catch and secure a pass, so be it. If he was running a lot of WR screens or short routes and not picking up…[Read more]

You should run the numbers on TDs per RZ pass attempt. For TD per RZ pass attempt, Winston was among the best.
But,his RZ pass attempt numbers were pretty low.
As the Bucs were good at getting to the RZ, does that mean they ran too much in the RZ?

Depth! Depth! Depth!
It is the only way to be sure you have what you need once injuries (and suspensions) come along. And, if all goes well, you are left with trade value.
Trading Humphrey or DJax could help the team if the depth is a great as it hopes. Drafting Justin Watson and binging in unsigned rookies is a great part of maintaining…[Read more]
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, Bucs Monday Mailbag 5-21: RoJo Versus Kamara, Salary Cap, Contract Extensions 1 month ago
For a healthy season, Blount and Martin made a dynamic RB combination behind a decent healthy OL. Barber and RoJo have more potential than that if the OL is up to it.
Yes. Once or twice a week outside to acclimate over the summer. But, mostly indoor to improve performance.
During the early part of the season, the break from from the heat for practices could be a game winning factor.

It starts with the OL. Have we done enough there?

I am glad that the bleeding is sending a message. I like TE Howard. But, to take him, they passed on the best OL players in the draft. And, more unforgivably, they seem to have just passed on Andrew Whitworth who went to the Rams and the Pro Bowl – again. So, rip those scabs of and bleed them good. Jensen and Cappa seem like moves in the…[Read more]

I know that Watson was only a fifth round pick. So, I see that he might not have the skills to be on the field a lot as a rookie. But, if Watson has much success at all, it should make create more opportunities for Evans.
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, Monken On Bucs 2017 Red Zone Offense: “We Absolutely Chose To Suck” 1 month ago
Seventh most red zone opportunities is impressive.
But, why the success rate was twenty-fourth needs a lot more insight than, “We chose suck.” Maybe he wants to break them down before he builds them up. But, that seems pretty like a pretty crude approach for an NFL professional. I hope that there is a point-by-point plan to correct the…[Read more]
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, Bucs Draft Analysis And Draft Grades: WR Watson 1 month, 2 weeks ago
His route tree may be limited until he is coached up. And, it may always be limited. But, I think that he is the best deep ball threat right now. He has DJax speed, and I think that he can catch a ball from Winston that is not quite on the money.
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, Bucs Draft Analysis And Draft Grades: LB Cichy 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Cichy has great instincts. The knock on Leon Jacobs was that he does not have the instincts. I really like Cichy. If he head Jacobs speed, or vice versa, it would be the icing on the cake.

I watched the Pitt-Miami game. Miami mostly avoided throwing at him. He got beat for a TD late in the game when the guy running down the seam faked to the flag and took it to the post. He bit too hard on the fake and got turned around. But, he mostly looked pretty good. The Hurricanes were ranked number 2, and Pitt upset them. He was not a…[Read more]
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, Bucs Draft Analysis And Draft Grades: CB Stewart 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Any idea why they did not go with S Justin Reid with one of these second round picks? I guess they just thought that CB was the bigger need, which is hard to argue as Grimes could retire or miss some games like last year. I think that we could be fine with the safeties we have. But, from a best player available perspective, it seems…[Read more]
Freeman Strickland commented on the post, (UPDATED)Bucs Add WR Watson From Penn 1 month, 3 weeks ago
I am not a Winston hater. But, his balls do not always exactly hit receivers in their hands. So, I liked this about the scouting report and NFL.com:
“Makes late contortions to the ball to bring it in”
With his speed, he should be a deep ball threat. So, considering the misses between Winston and Jackson last year, this also sounded…[Read more]

He stayed in and finished the Iowa game when he tore his pectoral muscle. And, his pro day performance indicates that he has almost completed his rehab from the ACL tear.
I think that he is going to be a steal. I believe that he may be a better in the middle run on running downs than Kwan. He is big enough to challenge Beckwith as starter on…[Read more]

Doing that about once a week to break them down is fine. But, do it too often and they never really recover; it just wears them down. Time and again, Tampa coaches have tried and failed to use the Florida heat and humidity to make super players. It just does not work. The idea that what does not kill you makes you stronger has some real limits…[Read more]

Philadelphia won the Super Bowl by being strong up front on both sides of the ball.
So, in the spirit of, “Build the trenches!”, use the 38 pick for the powerful Will Hernandez for LG with the versatile Josh Daniels as plan B.
Next, spend mid and late round picks to move up from the 53 pick for safety Justin Reid. He is the nex…[Read more]

Liked the film of James better than that of Fitzpatrick or Ward, and would like to have him on the team. But, DL rotations that do not let up have been a key to recent Super Bowls.
McCoy ran a 5.04 40 with 23 reps on the bench. Weighing fifty pounds more, Vea ran a 5.10 40 with 41 reps on the bench. Wearing a telemetry vest in practice, he…[Read more]
