COACHING TAPE – WEEK 11 (11/20/08)

BUCS OFFENSE VS. VIKINGS DEFENSE

Bucs ran offensive plays, and gained 363 total yards
Bucs 5-12 on third down conversions – They got in the red zone 5 times, and scored only 1 TD
Gruden a lot of shifting and motion to create the illusion of sophistication
Bucs failed to convert on 3rd +1, and 4th + 1 on their first series
Dunn 36 yard catch on 3rd + 3 on first quarter FG drive was vintage Garcia: He couldn’t see the throw to Bryant in the middle of the field because of all the big bodies in front of him, so he left the pocket and extended the play; His movement broke down the defense and Dunn worked with him to find an open area down the right sideline – Garcia at his best
Bucs version of the “Wildcat”: Direct snap to Dunn in the shotgun, He was flanked by FBs Askew and Cook with Garcia split left – Dunn2 yards

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games.
