Yes, the Post is reporting that Sanchez is bothered that he isn’t starting.
Yes, the Post is trying to make this a big deal.
Guys…. it’s not. Who wouldn’t be upset when told they would not be able to play against a 1-11 team with the 28th ranked defense in the NFL?
Sanchez will be fine. The Jets will be fine. No golf clubs will be used here; no 911 calls; no porn stars…. well, Sanchez will be left in NYC while the team is in Florida….
Anyway, here’s the gameplan for Sunday:
3. Score often.
Through the first 10 games of the season, the Bucs allowed 168.9 rushing yards per game. At that point, Coach Morris took over defensive calls from Coordinator Jim Bates and over the last 2 games (Atlanta and Carolina), the Bucs are down to 116.
We will see if the trend continues when Thomas Jones and the 169 yards per game Jets come to town.
Will Clemens in at QB, look to the running game first; the running game second; maybe a screen pass or quick out third; and the running game fourth, fifth and sixth.
Will Schottenheimer try to fake out the Bucs (please no) and pass early and often (please no). The Jets like to mix it up (please no) and surprise its opponent (just run the ball).
Bucs QB Josh Freeman threw for 321 yards with 5 picks last week against Carolina.
Bucs RB Cadillac Williams had 92 yards last week and is averaging 4 yds. per rush this season.
Bucs WR Antonio Bryant had 116 yards last week and has 476 yards on the season. TE Kellen Winslow leads the team in yards with 633.
On Defense, Barrett Ruud is the Bucs top LB with 75 tackles and figures to be involved with Thomas Jones often.
CB Aqib Talib leads the team with 5 INTs.
