1-on-1s were dominated by the defense. Rico McCoy overpowered Rendrick Taylor despite giving up 40 pounds and two inches to him. Taylor arrived on the team with a lot of hype about his versatility and strength, but this is the second day in a row he got beaten 1-on-1 by a guy who he should be able to control.
Dekoda Watson has been using a spin move on everyone he goes up against. Even though it has been effective, at some point he has to learn a different technique. His success with that one isn’t going to last forever. But on Monday, he got by Jerramy Stevens and John Gilmore with it.
Jeron Mastrud looked like shit Monday. Lots of drops and lots of getting beaten on blocks.
Josh Johnson to Sammie Stroughter on a long touchdown. Sabby Piscitelli couldn’t catch Stroughter in a foot race to the endzone.
That turned out to be one of Johnson’s best plays of the day. He had an off day, missing several receivers.
The defense is coming to expect that end-around by Arrelious Benn. They’re not going for nearly the yardage they were earlier in camp.
Ooh, trick play. Cadillac Williams takes a handoff, runs to the outside and then passes the ball back to Johnson who passed it to Maurice Stovall. It kind of reminded me of the play in the NFC Championship game a couple years ago where J.J. Arrington passed the ball back to Kurt Warner.
The Bucs piped in crowd noise on a goal line drill to distract the offense. It worked. Several false starts.
No matter how old he gets, Ronde Barber will never stop blitzing the quarterback. He times those things perfectly.
George Johnson is a guy to keep an eye on. High-motor guy at defensive end. There’s little enough depth that he could find himself in a good position with the team if he keeps up the effort.
Another two-a-day on Tuesday. The morning practice was canceled so the team could go see a movie. Raheem Morris chose “The Other Guys”, so obviously this is a punishment for a poor practice yesterday.
