From Booger & Rich
Every Monday and Friday Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report joins Booger and Rich to give you the best Bucs coverage in the Bay Area. Today Reynolds took us through the tough Week 1 loss to the Jets.
Reynolds said that the Bucs weren’t ready to go Week 1 and places the blame on Greg Schiano, not Josh Freeman and not Lavonte David.
After interviewing several defensive players in the locker room, Reynolds said that no one blames Lavonte David for his personal foul hit on Geno Smith at the end of the game. He said that everyone on the defense has his back and knows he was just trying to make a play.
Tune in every Monday and Friday at 4:20pm to hear Scott Reynolds with Booger and Rich.
As far as the Bucs penalties, Reynolds said that some of the big hits by guys like Dashon Goldson aren’t a huge problem because they will intimidate receivers in the future but “bonehead” penalties like false starts and delay of games have to be corrected.
During the game, Donald Penn was upset at Josh Freeman on the sidelines but Reynolds said that Penn is an emotional guy and it was a moment of frustration. The confrontation hasn’t affected the relations between Penn and Freeman.
Reynolds said that Freeman wasn’t great but the lack of a tight end and the poor offensive play calling were bigger issues that may plague the Bucs over the next couple of weeks. Reynolds noted that the Bucs will face the Saints and Rex Ryan’s brother Rob Ryan who plays a similar defensive scheme.
