Buccaneers-Redskins one-liners

Buccaneers K Mike Nugent missed a pair of field goals during the 16-13 loss to the Redskins.

Gary Shelton of the St. Petersburg Times wonders why the Buccaneers settled for a field goal from the Redskins’ four-yard-line with 4:30 to play.

Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris defended that decision as well as the one to give the ball to RB Clifton Smith, whose fumble with less than a minute to play effectively ended the game.

Buccaneers DE Gaines Adams, who has struggled this season, had a sack and fumble recovery to set up the team’s only touchdown.

QB Josh Johnson’s debut as a starter went well in the first half, but his interception on the first Buccaneers drive of the second half opened the door to the first Redskins points of the day.

QB Jason Campbell turned the ball over four times, but his two third-quarter touchdown passes put the Redskins in position to win the game.

Said Campbell of the Redskins being down 10 at the half, “At halftime I was like, if we don’t pull this one out, I don’t know
what I’m doing Monday. I might
just hibernate
. You might not even see me for the rest of the week.”

Redskins RB Clinton Portis made the decision to put him in the lineup pay off with 98 yards rushing on 25 carries.

After P Hunter Smith went down with a groin injury, K Shaun Suisham averaged 26.7 yards on three punts. 

Rookie DL Jeremy Jarmon stripped Smth on the final drive, sealing the victory for the Redskins.

    Obvious conclusions
    1. Zorn decided to focus on the run for a change, redskins win. Still made a couple bad play calls, but did better overall
    2. Skins were supposed to win, Bucs are Bad with capital B. No conclusion to be drawn.
    3.Run the ball Run the Ball Run the Ball
    4. The way they ran the ball, it was obvious their most glaring need is some young big ugly linemen who can play.
    5. When Snyder finally realizes I am the best coach available, he’ll call me
    Signed J. Gruden

    Gruden stinks. Snyder needs me back to bring in a simpler yet more effective offense. Then we’ll win, I promise.
    Signed Marty you-know-who

    What Snyder needs to do is hire a real GM, then go up into his owner’s box and not emerge until after the postseason is over. He has no idea how to build a winning NFL team, and neither does Vinny Cerrato.
