Every Monday Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report takes you inside One Buc for the best Bucs coverage in Tampa Bay. He joined Rich Herrera and guest host Steve White to bring you the latest.
Josh Freeman signed a one year deal with the Vikings and Reynolds said he was talks with about 10 teams before settling on Minnesota. Reynolds said we’ll likely see Freeman starting very soon for the Vikings.
Reynolds said that Freeman’s replacement, Mike Glennon, played fairly well in his first start but needs to build some receiver chemistry with Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson. Reynolds also said a better running game from Doug Martin and perhaps Jeff Demps would help take some pressure off the rookie QB.
Reynolds said there seemed like there was some relief now that Freeman is finally gone. The team seems to be refocused and there’s a revenge sense around One Buc because of the Bucs last second loss to the Eagles last season.
Reynolds said you would think the Bucs will need to fill Josh Freeman’s open roster spot with a tight end since Tom Crabtree is still injured and Tim Wright seems to be there only option.
Steve White noticed on film that Carl Nicks is playing better and Reynolds said that Demar Dotson has been the most consistent offensive lineman this season for the Bucs. Dotson was an undrafted free agent and Reynolds said he’s turned himself into a true starter.
Early reports are that Michael Vick won’t play Sunday against the Bucs and Nick Foles will likely start. Look for the quick offense to be scaled back a little because Nick Foles is not nearly as athletic as Vick.
