Overall Grade: B+
Q4 Grade: A
Within the last few weeks, we've seen drastic improvement in Doug Martin's receiving game. He has learned how to maximize the yard-after-catch, evidenced by his two catches for 32 yards off of short dumps offs.
Major props go out to Dallas Clark, who took a short reception for a first down. Need I mention it was 4th and 10?
Super major props go out to Dallas Clark again, who scored his first touchdown as a Buccaneer, bringing his team within a touchdown of the tie.
The offense had two beautiful drives in the fourth quarter, and came literally an inch of tying. If Vincent Jackson had just kept that foot in bounds...
Q3 Grade: B?
On the first drive of the quarter, Vincent Jackson made two clutch for 42 yards, using his size to make plays on the ball, plays that smaller receivers would have no chance of making. It should be noted as well that he made a NINETY-FIVE YARD CATCH!!!
Doug Martin has continued his dominance, while the offensive line has continued its mediocrity, allowing Bucs running backs to be hit behind the line of scrimmage on a semi-regular basis.
What really killed the team, was failing to score after Jackson's mega reception. You can blame the offensive line/playcalling for that one.
Q2 Grade: B
Wow, Doug Martin has been forcing missed tackles left and right, and is really making up for an offensive line that hasn't been too sharp when it comes to run blocking. The offensive line has also struggled with pass protection, as sophomore Cameron Jordan has had a very good day so far rushing Freeman.
Q1 Grade: B
Congrats to Tiquan Underwood on his first career touchdown. Congrats to Doug Martin on his new career-best rush, a 36-yard touchdown sprint.
