Former Bucs OG Ian Beckles said it plain; “if Jameis goes down, your looking at two wins”. Id like to put an addendum to that statement….
We know what Blaine can do in the NFL, but the statement that Ryan Griffin hasn’t played one snap in the NFL is meaningless, every QB has that moment. Griffin has progressed to the point where he looks sharp in every preseason game running the offense.
Yes, its preseason, and its against future Publix grocery baggers, but that also makes up his supporting cast too. It’s even.
In a regular season game, Griffin would have the Bucs starting offensive line to allow him to get crushed, er, protect him while he passes the ball.
Mike Evans would be catching balls. So would Howard.
While were at it, just give Bucs TE Tanner Hudson a spot on the roster. The NFL is moving toward receiving Tight Ends as passing rules open up the passing game. Hudson or Brate would give Bucs trade bait.
