Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicked off the Greg Schiano era with a dominant 20-7 victory over the Miami Dolphins in their preseason opener on Friday night.
Buccaneers101.com has gone back over the game and here are some of the highlights from the defense:
They showed some quickness and ability to attack, but the pass rush still isn’t there. Tampa Bay had a league-worst 23 sacks last season and there weren’t many things pointing to an improvement against Miami.
Defensive end Adrian Clayborn was solid against the run and put a big hit on a Miami tailback in the first half. Backup defensive tackle Amobe Okoye showed great awareness by tipping a Matt Moore pass in the first half that lead to an interception by linebacker Lavonte David.
However, the D-line committed too many penalties and needs to work on not jumping offsides on hard snap counts.
There were still a few missed tackles, but this group looked much improved from last season. Middle linebacker Mason...

Chad Johnson was arrested for alleged domestic violence outside his home after allegedly head-butting his wife during an argument.
Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has gone on the record in regards to why the team cut Chad Johnson in a presser that was televised on the NFL Network.
Philbin assumed a stance that painted a picture that the decision was based on a “body of work” that was put together “both on and off-the-field.”

Well that was quick. Miami Dolphins defensive captain was a guest on the Sid Rosenberg show on 640 AM in Miami and had some strong opinions on the teams decision to release wide receiver Chad Johsnon following his arrest for domestic violence on Saturday night.
This can’t be going over well with new head coach Joe Philbin, whose decision it was to cut Johnson. He first major...
John Jerry entered the offseason as the projected started at right guard, with Vernon Carey gone. Jerry, a 2010 3rd round pick, was drafted to be a starter by this point. However, he struggled in offseason practices and soon fell below Artis Hicks, who was a backup in Cleveland last season and heading into his age 34 season. They also signed Eric Steinbach, heading into his age 32...
According to Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post, the future of wide receiver Chad Johnson is currently in doubt as a member of the Miami Dolphins.
“Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson’s standing with the Dolphins remained in doubt Sunday following his arrest Saturday night on a domestic violence charge stemming from an altercation with his wife,” reported Volin.
We get it. Vincent Jackson is happy to be out of San Diego and with the up and coming Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that happiness doesn’t give him the license to make outlandish statements about his new quarterback.
We’ve been down this road once, but that time it was with Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. And as absurd as it was for Flacco to state that he’s the best quarterback...
The Greg Schiano era officially started last night with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking the field for the first time under his guidance. I have attended Buccaneers training camp this summer and some of the same things I’ve witnessed in practice, showed up on the field last evening against the Miami Dolphins.
The Buccaneers have stated repeatedly this offseason that they want to...
As you probably already know, Chad Johnson of the Miami Dolphins was arrested on domestic violence charges yesterday. Luckily for him he was able to get in front of a judge early this morning (in some states he would have been in jail until Monday, oh the horror!). Bond was set at $2500 in a very quick hearing as you can see in the video below.
I’m interested to see how this plays...

Gonna be an interesting episode of hard knocks this week, after Chad Johnson was arrested. Remember what he said last week?
For those who don’t have twitter accounts or are dead to the world on weekends, Chad was arrested for allegedly head-butting his wife which...
So the Miami Dolphins decided to part ways with wide receiver Chad Johnson on Sunday in the wake of Johnson's arrest stemming from a domestic battery incident involving him and his wife on Saturday night. This was supposed to be the time when we would see a revival of a career that had fallen on hard times last season in New England. Johnson was probably going to be the Dolphins...
Innocent until proven guilty right? That theory does not apply when you bring unwanted attention to your business.
The Miami Dolphins are completely within their rights to cut Chad Johnson because he made a mistake that they do not want affiliated with their team.
The league has reported that the 34-year-old has already cleared out his locker at training camp.
Even if his account...
Well the Chad Johnson experiment didn’t last long in South Beach.

The move immediately makes HBO’s Hard Knocks more excited but leaves the Dolphins with Davone Bess...
