I re-watched the game and I'm even more convinced that the Bucs scouted our game preparation @ IMG...

There are several examples of the Bucs defense having an uncanny ability to diagnose the plays we were going to run, especially the "gadget" plays, which makes no sense, except when you consider that we probably spent the majority of the time in the walk through last week going over the plays we don't typically run and any other wrinkles.

One of the most glaring examples of this was early in the game. Cam takes the snap and fakes a pass out to the flat, then pivots to run with the ball while DeAngelo begins to trail him to set up the option sweep. The Bucs defense didn't bite for a moment on the fake pass to the flat, they totally ignored it and converged on Cam... as he pivoted he found himself surrounded by 4 defenders who basically ran to a spot and waited for him.

I would call the Bucs defense lucky if this only happened on one play, but there were several more examples of this kind of "astute" defensive play by the Bucs throughout the first half. When we flipped the script in the 2nd half, the Bucs didn't seem to be nearly as good at reading the play we were going to run... but the damage had been done, you could see our offense was shaken by the fact that Bucs seemed to know our plays better than we did.

There were several examples of poor execution on our part, I'm not making excuses, but it's pretty clear to me that the Bucs had some extra intel on our gameplan.

The problem is people think we are a 13-3 team and got beat by a bad bucs team.

We are a mediocre team with a sophmore QB who is still learning the game and learning how to be an NFL QB.

Both of our lines are pretty bad. We have 1 good player on the defensive line with the rest mediocre players.

We have 2 great players on the OL with one of them getting older by the minute (Gross), with the rest mediocre, horrible, and a rookie.

It all happens on the lines and until we can fix those 2 major issues we will always be a mediocre team.

What? I thought the D-line did great Sunday. Martin had 95 yards but needed 24 carries to get it. Hardy and D. Edwards each had a sack. Alexander had 2 pass deflections and CJ had a pass deflection. Don't see how you can call that mediocre.

The O-line did get hammered pretty bad though. Still a lot of overreactions. First game of the season. I don't think the OL will consistently get beat this bad all year long.

6-10 last season, 10 poins in game one. Unless proven otherwise, this is not a good team

We are going to see pressure on the o line every week from now on - the bucs showed every other d coordinator in the league what it takes to beat us and Cam.
