    Would add Adam Humphries, who caught every ball thrown at him and hustled for first downs. I think at times they had him in as Evans’s sidekick intead of Dye. If so, well-deserved. Humphries may have the Bucs secon-most reliable pair hands after Sims. I’d like to see more of Sims at wideout, too. Dye is really just a deep threat decoy on 99% of his snaps. Should rotate him back to the practice squad and give someone else a chance.

      Ranell Hall is waiting for the call…

      1. 1.1.1


        Rannell Hall was plucked off our practice squad by the Cleveland Browns last week. He now plays at the factory of sadness!

    How about Dotson, he didn’t screw up once!

    Agree with you about Stocker and I only know one person who constantly harps about Stocker.
    The has added weight and looks like a tank and seems to have shed his early injury problems.
    Also feel Humphries should be on this list. The young man catches virtually everything thrown his way and doesn’t do anything stupid ala Dontea Dye and ASJ.
    Are secondary just stinks are our defensive line has been decimated by injuries.
    Where have you gone George Johnson.

    Stocker is a joke and he is a TE folks, best stat line to date “Stocker catches his second career td pass” ah, in 4 yrs in 4YRS, lol whatever

    Gholdston is good against the run problem is he plays DE and only has 3 sacks now if your a DT with that stat line then bravo but as a DE your suppose to rush the passer, 3 sacks this yr sucks for a DE, maybe move him inside

  6. 6


    I like Sims everytime he is on the field he makes things happen as My fav coach would say “brings the juice”

  7. 7


    LOL. jongruded. LOL.
    Also, Gholston is to tall to play DT. Height/weight distribution isn’t good for that position.

    JonnyG can’t even give credit when it is due. How about some love for our deep snapper De Paola and our punter Schum? They’ve been consistent all season.
