    I agree with this list SR. You captured everyone that stood out to me during the game.

    Evans is no fluke. He has that something special that the great ones possess. Barring injury, we are looking at a star. Nobody can single cover this guy.

    Today, for at least one game Josh was elite. Those two deep passes to Evans were a thing of beauty. Given time to throw, He can wing it.

    Look at all those defensive player. Fantastic! Defense wins games and it was proven again today.
    Go Bucs!

    Nice list Scott, but how can no OLineman make the list….they gave McCown all day to throw today, opened nice holes for Sims (who showed us why he was a reach 3rd round pick)….against a decent (admittedly not great) Skins DLine…

    I thought Dashon Goldson had three pretty thumpin’ hits with no penaties. Nice to see clean, solid impact hits like that.

    Evcen the punter laid one inside the 5.

    This list is missing Major Wright who again was in on several tackles and did a good job covering. (See Owlykat, I like Gators when they deserve recognition) But what was most impressive to me wasn’t a player, it was the attitude. From the opening kickoff until the final seconds “ticked off” they were “ticked off” and finally played with some swagger. The defensive line fed off of each successful harassment of RG (Three and Out). You could almost hear a “So this is how it’s done” from the front four. As Johnthan Banks said, it made it easy for the secondary. A coverage group that featured two CB’s who were only recently brought to the team.

    This is the Bucs team I was expecting to see from week 1! Out the gate they came after it, harassing the qb, the rb (although missing several tackles in the backfield) and taking shots on offense and I believe this can be the beginning of something…seems like when the defense gets off to a good start like they also did on Pittsburgh’s first drive, the entire team feeds off of that and plays with some swag and attitude…even the punter got in on the good play…need to clean up that tackling tho, Morris got way too many yards after contact…sucks tho, I was set to be on the field for the national anthem and hold the flag but my daughter got sick and I pulled out Saturday…figures

    I agree with the list, but there are a couple of unsung heroes that deserve honorable mention – CBs Crezdon Butler and Brandon Dixon. They are among eight Bucs players who had tackles Sunday that were signed off waivers/street since the start of the season. When was the last time — before Sunday — that Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson combined for five catches for 41 yards? The Bucs actually finished the game with backup Brandon Dixon getting more defensive snaps (37) than starter Crezdon Butler (35). Butler had a career-best 4 tackles – as many as he has had in any of first 4 NFL seasons.

    Wait. Jorvorskie Lane gets a Most Impressive, yet the Run Blocking is on the disappointing list? How the heck does that happen? 2 blocks = most impressive? I crossed my fingers twice when McClown threw the ball and both were TDs. Does that make me most impressive too?

  11. 11


    Defense continues to improve since the Barron trade and the offense is finding some flow. Dont look now but the Bucs appear to be getting better, tackling and ST aside. Keep Grinding Bucs Good Win.

    Great win. It’s nice to see the fight in any team when they are virtually eliminated from the playoffs…Oh wait…The NFC South is so bad they actually are only 2-games back…Go Bucs!

    What about Orie Lemon? He had three (3) solo tackles on special teams! That resulted in an average starting point at the 22 yard line for thecRedskins. Orie Lemon played his heart out!

  14. 14


    Actually, the Bucs are three games out of first because they lose EVERY tie breaker; therefore, they have to have a better record than every other team in the division.

    Most impressive..Only one individual player should be on list Mike Evans. McCown was good but not impressive. Lots of QB’s could have made those throws to Mike. I think the next impressive is the entire D-Line. They are the big reason the Redskins could not get anything going and why the LB’s and CB’s played well. The O-Line was good but run blocking was terrible. If Evans wasn’t playing the offense would be dismal at best. If our D-line continues to play the way they did we may have a chance to take the division at 7-9!!lol

    I enjoyed watching Smith yesterday. He’s making a case for some more playing time.

  17. 17


    Agree with list but wouldn’t say Banks having solid year. Solid game yes, but I’ve seen him be way too inconsistent to say solid year.

  18. 18


    You list the “run defense” as most dissapointing but list 5 of the front seven as most impressive. Seems contradictory unless you are blaming the safeties for the bad run defense.
