  1. He seems to be over the mental issues, which is great. You’ve got to admire how mentally tough he is to come back from something so horrendous.
  2. Preseason week one: Bucs @ Dolphins

    We tried that experiment his rookie year and I don’t think he saw the field. He has the physical skill set, but safety strikes me as being a tough position in this defence, so it would be a tough transition.
  3. Preseason week one: Bucs @ Dolphins

    I agree that he likely makes the team, but given his much hyped ‘improvement’ over the offseason and our relative lack of depth, I expected him to be more or less a lock. I like him on specials, but if one of the younger guys (Whitehead or Stewart) can contribute to the same level on that unit, he’s on the bubble.
  4. What if Manning went to Dungy instead of the other way?

    The 99 defence was better than the 2002 version. We just had absolutely nothing outside of Dunn and Alstott on offence.
  5. Preseason week one: Bucs @ Dolphins

    He got targeted and exploited at times last night. If I’m OCing against this defence, the first thing I’m doing is locating Smith. It wouldn’t shock me if he’s off the roster by game 1.

    I wouldn’t go as far to say the Bert Emanuel call cost us a place in the Super Bowl. 25 yards was a long, long way for that offence.

    Griffin looked quite good last night, as did Sergio Bailey. We’re ridiculously deep at receiver. Hopefully we can stash Bailey on the practice squad.
  8. Preseason week one: Bucs @ Dolphins

    I’ve only seen the first half of our game, but there was nothing there for him. We look to be doing a lot of inside zone type plays and rolling it back to the backside B gap, but he typically just got stuffed. Barber looked good though.
  9. Preseason week one: Bucs @ Dolphins

    He was taking check downs and making decent, quick decisions. One pass was a bit wayward, but the other incompletion was an early decision to get rid of the ball. Cautiously optimistic that he’s no longer going to try to play hero ball.

    The app is life changing. Even if it’s impulsive, it’s still one of the best decisions you’ll make this year.
  11. Question of the day 8/6 (Bucs Fandom?)

    I get to claim the decade though ;-)
  12. Question of the day 8/6 (Bucs Fandom?)

    91 though, so not far behind you guys!
  13. Question of the day 8/6 (Bucs Fandom?)

    Some of us were born in the 90s...
  14. Preseason week one: Bucs @ Dolphins

    Does he not have some hamstring soreness too? I can’t see Quizz being ahead of him come game 1.
  15. Question of the day 8/6 (Bucs Fandom?)

    The first game I ever watched was the 1999 NFCCG. The Rams were favoured, so I decided to support the underdog and that’s been me since. The highlight was the Super Bowl, though the 2003 MNF game v Philly was a highlight, as was 2005 and 2007. We’ve had very little to be excited about since the collapse in 2008. In terms of stories, I did both London games (not recommended, the atmosphere is terrible and you’re surrounded by people who all think they’re edgy because they're British and watch a minority sport. I’ve been to Ray Jay for a game once and it’s funnily enough out biggest win in a decade (Chicago 2016). I’m over next August, so hoping to get a preseason game in.
