Chris Pressley Has Left The Building

Chris was so mad he was released that he went home and shot his television.
I’ve been waiting a year to use that line.

But no, seriously, the Bucs released Chris Pressley today in order to make room for Derek Hardman, the man with the name all the ladies love.

Derek Hardman had a particularly busy stretch on the practice field this week, filling in…

I cut the quote off there because it made me laugh. Come on… “Hardman”, “stretch”, “filling in”. It’s hilarious, right? By the way, I’m 13-years old.

But I guess the Bucs are one Jeremy Zuttah ankle away from having some depth problems on the offensive line, so they needed to bring someone in. The other thing this implies is that Erik Lorig must have impressed in his duty at fullback if they have the confidence to release Pressley while Earnest Graham is still nursing a gimpy hamstring. I saw Lorig finish a block last week to the ground and beyond. It was like he was trying to push the dude through a trap door in the grass. I don’t know if that was the proper technique for that particular play, but I like his enthusiasm.

I like what you did with the Headliine. The bucs have no problem messing with players 50-53 on the depth chart throughout the season.

Man, all I’ve got is the 10 minute highlight reel on NFL “On-Demand” (although I haven’t looked on NFL.com for the game admittedly) so I don’t know that I saw that Lorig block. Seems like every Fill-in-the-blank-Converted-to-Full back experiment I read results in a shitty fullback, but I hope this is the exception.

Maybe we are planning on playing all no-back sets.

Too bad Hardman didn’t play against Chris Long yesterday.
