Here are a few of my own observations from the first few series on both sides
of the ball:
-On the first play Tampa brought all their linebackers on a blitz to
stop Bannon, followed by a corner blitz on the second play...real cool
Raheem. I'm soooooo impressed by those fantastic run stops.
-Harris whiffed on that second play completely.
-Based upon McCluster's one play...I like what I see from him at running
back A LOT. Harris and Lilja both blocked nobody on that one, though.
-Greenwood looked pretty damn good last night..always around the ball
on special teams and defense, made a lot of tackles.
-On the first defensive play: Walters got driven back 5 yards by their
backup tight end, Gales got owned and shoved back, Tyson really held
his own against the double team, Studie did a nice job getting into
the backfield off the edge but missed the tackle, Demorrio missed a
tackle too, and Berry came in and cleaned it up (he's such a solid
-Toribio looked stout against the run on second down, Belcher too.
-On third down Tyson got a pretty damn solid push against a couple
guys, Bailey looked like he was depending on his upper body and arm
strength only (resulting in a meh push), and Lewis had really nice
coverage on that pass breakup.
-Third strike for Harris on the fumbled snap..I can see why the
coaches wanted to get a look at him now (not in a good way)
-Toribio on 1st and 2nd and goal looked good coming off the line, got some push.
-On the first play next offensive series Richardson tried to throw a
cut block and got pushed down, but he still got his man down so we can
call that one a wash I guess.
-O'Connell looked really good run blocking on first and second
down...impressive. Pope did a nice job run blocking too. Urban really
cleared the way blocking for TJ on his long run, pushing his guy like
20 yards downfield.
-When TJ got pushed out of bounds after the play, I read his lips
yelling "PUSSY!" at Grimm. Lmfao..
-If Jackie Battle doesn't get cut this year..I'll have to make a cut
too. (My testicles: off). My God he looked slow and useless. Stopped
in the backfield, then fumbles...BLEGH.
-O'Connell looked like a beast again blocking on that fumble. Pushed
Adrian Clayborn back a few yards, not bad for a (white) tight end.
Anywho, that's all I have time for now. This is my first post so hey
to everyone; I've been lurking since march of last year so I can say
I'm somewhat familiar with many posters already. Shoutout to H2E, I
hope you'll appreciate my racial comment. Also, I really have no clue what I'm doing as
far as formatting and whatnot goes in the posts, so any suggestions are welcome. Peace, guys!
