Bucs-Cowboys one-liners

Dallas stuck to its plan of a balanced offense Sunday, on their way to a 34-21 victory.
The Cowboys’ run defense struggled, however, allowing RB Cadillac Williams to rush for 97 yards on 13 carries and No. 2 RB Derrick Ward to generate 62 yards on 12 attempts.

Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins, who struggled last year, wasn’t a liability in coverage Sunday, although Orlando Scandrick will start Dallas’ Week 2 game.

Cowboys RB Marion Barber dominated in his closer role, picking up three fourth-quarter first downs and scoring from six yards out to seal the 34-21 win.
Bucs WR Michael Clayton’s 93 receiving yards Sunday were his most since Week 13 of his rookie season.
Due to communication issues in the secondary, the Bucs surrendered four pass plays of 40+ yards in Sunday’s loss.
Bucs CB Ronde Barber admitted that those plays “absolutely destroy(ed)” Tampa’s chances of winning.
Joe Henderson, of the Tampa Tribune, predicts many more losses like Sunday’s for the “rebuilding” Bucs franchise.

    Scandrick should have started week 1, Jenkins looked lost out there….

    Really Ronde? You sound as insightful as that kooky brother of yours. Hey speaking of Tiki, I think I have found out his real aspiration, Speaker of the House. Tiki apparently is the only one who can go one on one with Nancy Pelosi in a blinking contest. That dude looked like he was sending out secret messesages while doing his on the field thing at Giants stadium. Poor little fella had to kiss up to Eli in an interview too. Hilarious! Tike you deserve it.

    Pro Bowl play out of the secondary ! And to think coach Morris was a DB coach??

    We seriously need to address our run defense….with the Giants and brandon Jacobs coming to town.

    This may be the first time in years where the Bucs offense outplayed the defense. Our defense was abysmal and I attribute it to one person…Sabby Piscitelli. He was seen trailing the receiver on 3 of the 4 big plays. He looked completely lost. If Raheem doesnt make a change next week we will be in for another defensive nightmare. Tanard Jackson’s adsence is sorely missed. Upon Tanard’s return, Flip and he need to remain in the safety spots with Geno, Barret and Quincy bringing up the LB corp. That was a frustrating game to watch.

    Largely ignored has been the performance of the Bucs’ QB. Overall stats sound ok but don’t include the number of time Leftwich overthrew wide open receivers. At least twice they were wide open for gimme scores. Some turkey will probably say L needs time to get used to the offense. Choke on it turkey.

    “Joe Henderson, of the Tampa Tribune, predicts many more losses like Sunday’s for the “rebuilding” Bucs franchise.”
    –verb (used with object)
    1. to repair, esp. to dismantle and reassemble with new parts: to rebuild an old car.
    2. to replace, restrengthen, or reinforce: to rebuild an army.
    3. to revise, reshape, or reorganize: to rebuild a shattered career.
    The Bucs are not rebuilding yet, they are still demolishing or dismantling the team.

    Piscitelli sucked in this game, sucked in the preseason, sucked last year, and would have sucked the year before that if he hadn’t been on IR. When are they going to pull the plug? I know the guy was a 2nd rounder, but then again so was the phenom Dexter Jackson, who is brokering mortgages now in several convenient Bay Area locations.
    Tony, are you watching? Care for some more charity work straigthening out some other miscreants?

    Leave it to the quarterbacks coach thrust into OC duties to put up more offense than the “Genius” Gruden….
    Now, if the Bucs can muster up some defense and special teams (their strengths prior to this year)…
    Piscitelli, you are a cocky SOB, but you suck at football!

    You missed one.
    Tony Romo had a career day in his first NFL game without Terrell Owens, passing for a career-high 353 yards at over 13 yards per attempt, and a passer rating of 140.6.

    I bet he wont have a carrier high against a real D…aka Giants.
