    So the only time TEs don’t have a field day against us is when we’re being blown out….guess I’ll take the soft middle coverage every time…

  2. 2


    It’s nice when we have to think who was that disappointing. Barron and Wright were just as guilty as Verner and Banks.

    This is Jubilee Sunday. All is forgiven!Saw lots of bad, just not going to mention it! #nobuzzkill

    Holding call on Verner was a really bad call.

  5. 5


    Verner also had a couple of nice plays.

    We gotta figure out what’s up with Koenen. 35 yard punts are rough

  6. 6


    Verner was pushed down in the end zone. But I do agree that our secondary is allowing completions at an alarming rate. We seem to rarely defend a pass. I hope someone asks the question of Lovie if Koenen’s high but short punts were by design to prevent returns and allow for the coverage to get downfield. Agree with Fletcher being ill-suited for a Tampa 2 Mike linebacker. I was most disappointed with the Steeler fans, who, as I predicted, hit the early exit and missed the best part of the game.

  7. 7


    I am glad we got the win. However, Dietrich-Smith should definitely be on this list. For an experienced center to consistently get called for delay of game is inexcusable.

  8. 8


    I agree with this list 100%. Great job SR. I agree with not putting the OC/QB coach, C or QB on here for the delay of game penalties because we have no idea which one of them was causing this.

    We need a MLB or safety that can cover a TE. It’s as if they, Miller, Olsen, Cook, et al have been given clear passage through Buc territory. The very thought of Jimmy Graham gives me the willies. We need instinctive CBs that will play the ball instead of the man. We’ve got counter punchers who wait for the reception, then go after the man.

    It is not the scheme. This is the exact same scheme that Dallas (Marinelli) used to keep the Saints off the board using players that couldn’t even make the Bucs roster. A CB is a fighter pilot with the cockiness and attitude that attacks and believes that he can beat you. Sorry we don’t have those type-A attitudes on our team. Dallas just demoted Claiborne, Banks should take notice!

    Agreed with the TE coverage thoughts. Why do the LB’s always sell out versus the run at let the TE go free? That cannot be the way defenses are taught. If you have an assignment, stick to it!
