Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report takes you inside all of the turmoil at One Buc with Rich Herrera and guest host Steve White.
Right now Doug Martin is on pace for 400 carries and Reynolds said that the Bucs will have to do something to give Martin a break. He said look for some of the backups like Mike James or Jeff Demps to see some work. Reynolds said it’s no surprise to see defenses stack the box against the Bucs and we can expect more of the same for the rest of the season.
Greg Schiano had some defensive comments during a meeting with season ticket holders and Reynolds said the fan response has been very negative. It came across as arrogant and Reynolds said it seems like the comments were unnecessary considering Schiano’s record as the Bucs head coach.
Reynolds said that Davin Joseph doesn’t look like a Pro Bowler so far this season but the bye week could help him rest his knee and will hopefully have him improve his play.
With Josh Freeman released, Reynolds said this gives Mike Glennon a clear chance to step up and be the QB of the future for the Buccaneers. Reynolds said he would not be surprised if the Bucs went out and tried to find another QB to eventually back up Mike Glennon like Ryan Mallett or David Carr.
Reynolds also said that Ahmad Black’s release may have been more personal and may have involved off field issues rather than his play on the field.
