Detroit Lions Instant Reaction
Every year in the NFL. It's a new team as far as goals go. We have one putting the fucker in offender. Welcome to the buccaneers observer. Pond Cases Ralph Phillips Fifteenth Two Thousand Nineteen What's supporter of. Yes boy list five. Yeah something like that Have you now also. You can thank me because I've worn the same shirt in the last four wins. I don't remember if I was wearing during the loss. But she's the reason why we won. Now you're welcome just doing in my part I've been wearing the same underwear. Good game good game. We dominated that game. There was a little little blurb there where I was like. Oh no they my come back. And that's what happened in the Jacksonville game and it's in that same period of time it's like when the opposing offense and just and then we have to react. Act to their adjustments. Well we're so used to the bucks. Losing Games like Senator Tail Yeah Two bucks. Twitter was melting down at that point. It wasn't the worst time scene but people had come to expect it. James Wisdom threw an interception on a second pass. When that happened I was like yes? He'll have four hundred your yeah. Let's get that it's true. I saw someone on twitter. Call it a good luck. Pick which is so true very accurate so just keep doing james someone else suggested maybe putting Ryan Griffin and the first series to avoid interception and then let James Coming later. I don't know if either because I think still needs to the riley interception. That was only one he had all the day though. So we got that going and for us. The Detroit lions came in they had five interceptions on the season. And I said well the probably double that in this game. I thought they'd get to. That was a total total. Oh domination in the first quarter we had fifteen rush yards to their six two hundred twenty one passing yards to their negative five. Just outrageous outrageous total yards was two and thirty six till one CODA yards is the first quarter nine. I down to one first down. Detroit got we had six twenty plus yard plays in the first quarter alone and they had zero. Obviously they didn't even have twenty yards by the middle of the second quarter. Winston instant had two hundred ninety one yards one hundred thirty six passer rating. He was fifteen of nineteen three touchdowns. Thirteen first downs. The lions had had fifteen total plays. We had thirteen first downs. They had fifteen total plays blow was one of five for five yards. He had a forty forty two rating. That was a the middle of the second quarter and of course right afterwards saying that is when they had their first drive that they could actually put together so they got like three first downs in a row. I think one of their first downs they had in the first quarter of the second quarter was because of the penalty on Santa's correct uh which that is the only metric where they beat us. We had nine penalties for seventy. Are they had to you for ten yards so they beat us there but in every other aspect we just crush him. Oh they did match are rushing. We had forty nine yards rushing gene and they have forty five so now great there. We also had twenty nine rushing attempts to their eighteen so we average one point seven or rush whereas they the average two and a half per rush assault Joe Books Fan Dot com put out an article immediately following a win complaining about our rushing rushing attack like desolate. You're going to focus on. We don't eat it which I was very satisfied with the comments on that article because everyone basically basically was saying that you know. He's been crying for run game for two three years of age Russia too. Now we got the best one in the league. They should just shut up well. Maybe they figure they're whining and gets the attention has been reinforced. This point condition. Yeah which speaking of our best edge rusher SHAQ BARRETT WITH HIS SACK Today tied Warren Sapp Record. That is so crazy I mean. Did you ever think you'd see the day. Yeah figure of one day. Warrants out was different to tackle. So that's a little bit more impressed. We know that's not a metric for uh-huh we'll get to that second but yeah shakhbut. He's just he's A. I was watching him most of the game. He was just tired crap out there it was. It was incredible Rashard. Pearman had a great game. Yeah well yards three touchdowns. Have you started him fantasy today. That was quite a gamble that paid off. You should've started U- I don't even have him. You should have got him. You'RE GONNA lose your first playoff game. I've been in the playoffs but about in your first playoff game this year. Yeah it's too much pressure on me without you in there Dr Sam Blaming Your Barrett Times. More in Sam's record in sixteen and a half sack's wake do games lapse. I'm Gary Well. Yeah Yeah but that brings me to the Carolina. Panthers got stopped the day by the Seattle seahawks. And if you didn't watch that game you you got to see Gerald McCoy called for penalty being offsides on third down and four which gave them a first down and they scored a touchdown. German was on the sidelines. Blinds like throwing his helmet all angry the hasten before that at the buccaneers that kind of passion right. Where was that good? I'm right but we're used to those kind of penalties from him right frequently and so much for him going to a contender. The Patriots Suck. Oh I saw tweet that we can lose Al and the panthers could win out and then we would still tie for second in the NFC south. I think we would still have second place because we have the Tiebreaker Lewis said. That's very exciting. Second in the division. There's really no way frozen to get second in the division and Atlanta. They're four nine. They're playing San Francisco today. We're watching that one now. I'M GONNA put myself on the back so I called that we'd be second in the division. Of course I thought we'd be fighting with New Orleans for the division title. Oh my gosh. There was a kick return with Atlanta and the returner pushed his own guy. I down back on top of that. Anyway you know. I don't know that you really didn't pick house has because it's all the podcast. We got our picks in writing. But that's not good with you because okay you keep mentioning They asked Bruce Arians about him today in the press conference and he said you're darn right. He's coming back next year or or something he laughed. He said he's not going anywhere. That's good to hear that. Yeah definitely I think this whole team really likes the coaching staff and all that lose people it. It worries me but at the same time. I'm kind of confident that they'll be able to people out of the guys that we need to keep yeah. I think there's a core group that we need to have and and I think that everyone likes to play a wants to be here so but definitely you could tell this as a team on the rise. Yeah and they all have really good. Chemistry mystery and relationships like there wasn't instagram post from Vida Film and they call him bigger. All I guess and then Vida is Sufa. They have nicknames for each other and they were joking around and laughing so it was cool. It just seems like there's a lot of camaraderie there. He's got a lot. Yeah which they really showed up today Sean Murphy. Bunting got his pick six in his hometown. THIRD-ROUND DETROIT third interception option on the season leads the team and interception crazy. I never would have guessed that his seventy interception return was the fifth longest by any player in the NFL this season and the longest by Buchan ears. The player since Mason foster returned eight five yards for touchdown versus New Orleans in two thousand thirteen crazy Mesa Foster Mitt Romney went to redskins. I liked him him and it got cut this year. Yeah ugly jibs whistle the first player in NFL history with two four hundred fifty plus pass your games consecutive -secutive. The only one to ever do it. Dad Is Insane. We knew play in a league with the likes of drew brees and Air Rhonda's and Matt Ryan and no one's ever word on that before o'brady released gunslinger. Yeah Philip rivers craziness and James had a pretty good day went twenty ninety eight forty two which is almost what David Blau went. He went twenty four forty three but Davis had four hundred fifty eight yards four touchdowns one interception and had reading of one twenty four point nine. He got sacked twice Moga ties twice to Blau. Yeah he had two hundred sixty yards six yard average compared to Timothy Winstons ten point nine yard average prepares Blau ended up with a fifty four point four rating. Compared the James Winstons. One twenty four point nine right. He threw no interceptions and had no touchdowns and two interceptions phenomenal within. So with Chris Carlin getting hurt in the game. The the big ones the sideline white man Whitehead Scotty Miller also James Through completions to eleven different receivers receivers ishmail high high. He got one three yards third down conversion to if I recall that correctly hunts and he got hurt but he had a reception for fourteen yards. That's right I said that's a head injury concussion protocol which is interesting. Because we've talked about this all year long one of the positives with the buccaneers is that we have not been hit the injury bug. And then we've got all these hamstrings Mike at Mike Evans last week. And then this week Chris Godwin which. Ba said it does not look good same. Same thing he said was Evans. So I don't know what's going to happen there but and then Whitehead Scotty Miller said. Maybe they're pushing them too. Hard at practice actus. Maybe so he said he's going to get with the sport science people. NC Ex but you know it's it's happened at the end of the season. If you'RE GONNA have it happen this is done. You know if you're not going to play offs and bring in some guys that can take place not Louis. I want to see what happened to Ryan. Jensen was this was in the second quarter minutes. Yeah he got hurt with off the silent he was pissed he was like purple and then they had offered was taken snaps when Winston rely on the field and we call a time out and they were just like practicing briefly warming up and then came back out and he was like no play. The coaches were like trying to holding back and he just went back out and then I read a tweet later in the game that said that his upper her arm was wrapped pretty tightly so I wonder if that was it but yet he was pedsed and then there was one point on the broadcasts. You can see him fighting with defensive. Lionel pushed off. I just love him to one day. David had a great game to tackle for a loss. There they were great. Great tackles and then it. Didn't you have an interception that got call myth for penalty that was on. JP The penalty will go. Yeah he had had eight tackles seven solo two fouls one past defendant. We had quite a few TSA fails we had four five five six seven seven. TNL's yeah good stuff grapes. Yano days that bunting pick six in the fourth quarter when they were making their comeback that yeah they're in Stewart and twenty four. He had an interception with four minutes left but they reversed it looked to me like like a ball. Never hit the ground. I mean it could have but I just didn't see enough on the replay where they couldn't overturn it. Yeah I need to go back and look at it because I just saw the one time when I look at showed at one and usually they're very strict about overturning. It's not I think that they could have made the case for four. There's not enough there so it just has to stand. That was my analysis. I saw it. Didn't look to me like you could see the ball hit. The now's my point his arm of the way. So I don't know what angle they had where they can actually see that not from the broadcast angle. Anyway David also caused caused a fumble at two minutes and forty seven forty seconds left that was recovered by Devon White. That was awesome. Love to see that he was not he going to fall now blowing trying to pick that thing back by then all the lions fans were gone which I get. That stadium was empty. I now I feel for lines fans man. I've always had a soft spot for them. I like Matt Stafford and it was really weird. We had a little the two minutes left. We got the ball we victory formation with Ryan Griffin out there and then we did it four times turn it over on downs. They had thirty five seconds left or something like that. They did the kneel down here but still never give up like that. I don't think I think it sends the wrong message to the team. That's what it was. The Chicago game name was last year with Qatar. That's what I said. Last six minutes left he started around the ball round the clock out and we were down twenty points or something. I can't remember and he he just gave eh six minutes left and I said that's it. He's you know he's GonNa lose a team like that you can't you have to fight and fight you know and even even when you're down to three scores wars of thirty five seconds left you go. You never know what's GonNa Happen in full moment. You never know I mean the Atlanta Falcons got three E. onside kicks. Yeah couple weeks ago. One was called back penalty but they got to to write back to back and Matt Ryan when out there in late in awe. I'll be surprised if they hang on him this at the end of the year. He's just had a really crappy. Happy Year what do you think about Janus game but I think the I think either in debt. Oh most definitely there are some things he needs to improve on. Of course. He's he's always needed to improve on these three things up said to we drafted by it with the rest of the team. Rallying around him other snapping snapping up exactly offensive. Line did good today. I was shaky there to start off with but you know you get plenty of time to throw in Nice pockets. But the defense is really stepping up and in making up for Timothy Winstons deficiencies right like that. Interception didn't Detroit gets the ball backing. They go three now. They actually lost. George they got an interception us lost five yards three plays and then put it back to himself to didn't really happen. And Tamers t be able to overcome losing and Mike Evans. And then Chris God win Roy Mike Evans played with Johnny Manziel in College. And it was completely evident that Mike Evans was the reason why Johnny Manziel played as good as he did to. That fell and weren't playing together. You could tell who is carrying that tandem. You can't say that about James Winston now. You can't say Mike. Mike Gavin hasn't played two games. Now and James Winstons put forward and fifty plus yards two games names these past that anybody anybody can catch the ball. James Woods is going to get you the ball so you can't blame. You can't say the receivers are what makes Jameis Winston and I would have to say it's the exact opposite wisdom's making receivers. Although Mike Evans I think he could probably if you could make Johnny Manziel look you can make anybody look Yeah Oh yeah. He's absolutely an elite receiver. Yes yes he is. And you know the combination between Hill and Jameis Winston. You've been for the next few years. That's that's GonNa be an unstoppable duo and that we got Chris Godwin in there which I love Godwin because he is so physical does not look like he's. There's a lot more slender than Mike Evans. Says I feel like like Mike. Adams is a little bulkier and Chris. Evans just looks very lean by Chris Chris Christie team. I wish the shield in there did we ever tell this story about going and seeing the store on one anyway now and that's story for another time. Maybe the off season Glossman Trade Chris Collin he does not look like a physical player but he is so hard to take down he has constantly philly breaking tackles evading tacklers. It's really impressive. Like Mike Evans. He is big but he slow and he can get tackled. He's he's not a yarns after the Cat Guy Goggin as we haven't had one of those down plus Chris is a great blocker you know. He's very physical he's out there you know. He's not a Julio Jones level blocking but he's out there doing a good Dang job I think he likes contact depression too because he doesn't look like receiver but he really is Chris. God we're GonNa out was a shame because there was a stamp posted on the twelfth right before the game that Chris Godwin has seen the most targets without a single drop to seasonal one hundred thirteen targets and he has not passed yet really second in the NFL where he was second in the NFL with twelve. Hundred twelve receiving yards and nine touchdowns so hopefully he'll be able to come back and answer the staff if not. He's had a really good head. A great year. Put Tim up there with the with the elitism in the game. The ten long has played for the Tampa. Bay buccaneers. All of them were over twenty yards for the Detroit. Lions only had three plays ladies that were over twenty dollars how they only had nine plays that. Were overtaken unbelievable. All we had over ten twenty plus your incredible so we had more twenty yard plays than they did ten years ten plus yard place. Well Wanna I WANNA give a shout out to Britney one of the captains of the Tampa Bay buccaneers cheerleaders. She has gone to the pro bowl. How do they select that person and no idea idea well good for Brittany represent had they set the pro bowl? WHO's GonNa win the players? Keep out in kidney any spell and I think that's how well the player or the fan voting only thirty percent of the total votes right. It's the players the right. I don't Allah. How Fares put all the popular contest India? Because I mean if Evans Godwin Berit Winston and and Vida don't go to the pro ball. It's obvious it's all popularity and we know they're not going to go to the pro bowl shack definitely needs to go. Mike Evans definitely needs to go. Oh beat them. I don't know that many defensive tackles it or nose tackle. Our position is defined right to once you have that good a stance you know air. On course he's GonNa go check better go. They've sack leader and now he's been the sackler all year I think he's he was tied for a little while he might have fallen down in half at one point right I think so. That's quite impressive. Man or teams impressive. Continue their fun to. Why even announcer said even now said that I liked it when Lavar David made one of T. f. l.? I think it was a hit on that tight end. And it was like you could hear the head on the broncos. They replayed it. And what are the announcers. We're like listen to him. He's jacked and ages going off and the announcer was. I was just going on about how it's awesome to see that when a player gets like that so it was cool. Well our next opponent is the Houston. Texans that's going doing to build a Saturday guys about this because yesterday I felt like my whole day was just sitting around woodland my thumbs until the last point off your from. Yeah you know and we were talking about this earlier that normally at this point during the season we're not excited for the Games. We're just excited for them to be over because normally they're so bad at this point in the season where it is ready. I was excited for the game today. Tale you almost hit it. Exactly you predicted could forty two seventeen. The score was thirty. Eight seventeen so cops kudos to you. You said thirty to seventeen so if we're going by prices right rules island over over thirty to twenty one thirty to twenty one. I should've just let you give me more props. Shut my mouth so yeah. I can't pretty close the Houston. beat the Tennessee Titans today so they are trying to win their division right. It's still close. The titans are only one game down on the Texans but they're coming to the buccaneers. Yeah I know last two home games we are done with rogue gains. We finished five and three on the season on the road road. Yeah we had a good run and we. We got a lot of mileage to do this. I think most in NFL history ridiculous. They need to make the Patriots do that next year as punishment for other teams. Yeah we watch the video of the Viagra for and the bengals security guy. He was filming and they were like. What are you doing there? You can't you can't okay. Here's the thing does. The Patriots really need help beating the right not to be the Bengal things out because anyone thinks with the bucks needed to beat the bengals. I don't think so. Come on us to in Texas to come into the House fighting. They'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA be fighting playing for. I guess the play for Deandre Hopkins was held pretty well today right yardage region staff. Yeah with the Texans so you know maybe we can get a blueprint from that but they did win so watch some film on the Texans as weak the close close game twenty four twenty one with Houston beating the Tennessee. Titans deandre Hopkins ended up with a six or seven hundred nineteen yards no touchdowns though that's really the difference. There can still hawked all the touchdown throwing two or three receptions three targets gowdy at thirty five yard five yards yards in two touchdowns Deandra. I'M GONNA leave isn't a first round of the playoffs so don't forget. The game is on Saturday. One PM. Elm You'd get worried out all the buccaneer fans diehard they're gonNA know but there are some people out there who are not going to be aware of that so let lemesurier late everybody now be nice to have a a pack stadium the the Choi Lions only half fifty six thousand people show up in their sixty thousand was sixty five hundred sixty five thousand and it didn't uneven look like that much now. That's their official. The official paid numbers. But like I said a lot of a lot of corporations buy season tickets then. People don't go so so next week should be a pretty good barometer for where we are at WE'RE GONNA go in limping because of all the injuries I think our defense is really gonNA have to step it up. Not that they haven't been stopping it up but this is a different caliber team than what we've seen in the last few weeks we were to in six at week. Eight eight nine nine we gave us but and we are seven and seven now lost one day and that was against. It's the saints team very proud. I'm happy happy with another. Isn't that a full month of being proud and welcome my chest out mccullers hours with no humility December is a good month for the bucks finally for the play offs but yeah terroists kind commissioning month. If we would've won that giant's Game Bruin won the giants game and the Tennessee game both two games. We should should have won the giants game in particular because we only lost that by put literally and we'd be right in it we'd be right in the middle of the hunt but a spilt milk. We're GONNA get football team. They're entertaining to watch the beating people. Silly look at hope especially for next year. Just imagine what do with a full a few upgrades or just a full year in the system. Yeah yeah everybody getting more used to each other heavily. We've got a lot of continuity to keep people our any that's going to wrap it up for us if you want to stay. Listen to Bruce Arians Post Post game press conference. We'll have it at the end of the podcast here. Great Game Today Been Fun to watch. It's good to see us. Beat down another team always enjoy that we played well. I think I think you're going to be hearing US talked about all off season as the team to watch. So buccaneers fans. Hold your head up high stick chest out wait colors proud and till next time box another game. That always ebb and flow in a ballgame. We kind of gave up to broken place. Got Him down there but then our defense. I really rebounded well. And ABC's on just the pick six and pretty much puts it on Ice Jason. We get another stop and James Sits. Obviously Chris's down with another hamstring Scotty got a hamstring when he scored scored his touchdown and can't say enough about the guys ish jumped at narcotic I downplay and hug we'll see how he's GonNa hit injury so he made a big play. I mean other says okay though intercepts show. Let's go. Let's go win the game and so I thought James Pay really really well. He saw the hottest a little bit late in. The guy made a good play on it record before when he starts sixty per year. Yeah I thank you know. There's more good than that. That's what we've been looking for the whole time you know and You know I think the biggest thing for me was to give up any points. We we turn the ball over inside to fifty this nothing defensive starting to grow up a little bit sudden change defense and protecting him a little bit better it gains by. Yeah I think with injuries that occurred in game Can't say enough about the guys like I said I don't Care What Your Jersey numberous when you have. That buccaneers and plug on your helmet. There's an expectation level of play when when you step out on the field and its whether if you want to practice squad last week or if you've been a backup tackle or backup nose. Guard the level of expectation doesn't change out there and do something to win the game. Yeah I'm surprised this law I really am. I guess with Chris in my cabinet ears the head. It was hard but you know he. He had a great ball game that last one was great thrown catch and we had him earlier And we got hit right when we get ready to go get him. I thought he had a long ninety nine but I can't say enough about nine John. There's always some some butterflies and you know I didn't see the walk in the back but they always your the Labor. They lost everything. Just where we're practicing were forming on Sundays and There'll be a big test now with. We'll see WHO's left for Houston on a short week. You know we'll be talking about to our sports people about it. Maybe I've overworked them in practice the receivers because we need the reps are quarterback needs the reps wchs and so we run a little bit more than this time of year. That I would probably like to do that. Are we need to reps James in the. I think there's some discomfort. I don't know how much pain but there's discomfort you know. He got used to the glove real quick and guys guys did a good job of making that thing for him him. uh-huh huge huge play. The you know they kept thrown to the guys can't catch it finally through the one guy that can catch and it went to the house. I mean deans means got easiest to get goes through his hand. Caught in ways at one Then it was a big play in the game. Big playing the game. The good Ol knows this Friday watching Friday's Friday's practice with the glove and the brazen The fact that he wanted to play speaks volume of him. Todd order because we had that eight more SASS out there. We go but this kid did help the jobless scrambling and but yeah I mean. That's a huge record islands. I don't I don't think we can look that at all. That's that's that's big time suse which Tucker spot aw came off the edge and it looks like both guys missing. They finally rushed push. Push them into to sue and he got him on the ground and I thought he's going to get the ball out but Long and then you get a penalty. That's good you were giving. Uh Yeah. It's everything I mean. What what we're trying to finish out on a on a positive note and with all the guys had to step up in this ball game especially offensively it means a ton Does not look good but yeah can you. He was close today. You know tried to move. Elliott Elliott Bull rushed him and he couldn't handle it so that was it. Aw knew for sure being going they were uh-huh going anywhere. Those fantastic you know. Just just give them one and let's go play when the human that first quarter was lights out and everybody was on the money and You know so yeah. I can't say enough about it.
