It’s early Authentic Ryan Smith Jersey , The fourth and final preseason game is officially in the books, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-10. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see Jalen Ramsey matchup against Mike Evans, but we saw other players fighting for jobs.The Buccaneers finished 2-2 this preseason and just by the eye test have looked much better than they did this time last year. One thing that I have noticed throughout the preseason has been that overall, the Buccaneers special teams were performing much better. During the regular season last year, Tampa Bay was consistently terrible on special teams. From kickoffs, to field goals Youth Justin Evans Jersey , to kick coverage, it was all wildly inconsistent.Part of the problem was that their kickers last year, both Nick Folk and Patrick Murray didn’t have the leg power to get touchbacks or put the opposing team in difficult situations. In fact, Tampa Bay ranked 31st in the league in touchbacks with only 27 last season. With new kicker Chandler Catanzaro handling kicker duties, in the previous three games this preseason, the Buccaneers were tied for first with 11 touchbacks.Heading into Thursday night’s game, Buccaneer opponents had returned the ball on seven separate occasions this preseason and Tampa Bay has handled all of them considerably well. The team ranked fifth in average return yards allowed with 27.4. Again http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-chris-godwin-jersey , it’s a subtle thing, but special teams are extremely important in this league and can often win and losefootball games. The field goal kicking situation is still to be determined, but add in the Adam Humphries 109 yard return and I think the Buccaneers have shown signs of a strong special teams unit all around.Dotson continues to progress as second preseason game approaches While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers first team offense performed exceptionally well during the teams first preseason game, they were missing a key piece. Starting right tackle Demar Dotson was held out as the team continues to ease him back into action from his off season knee injury. Dotson, when healthy, is arguably the teams best offensive lineman and will certainly be a huge factor this season for Tampa Bay. Head coach Dirk Koetter gave some positive news today on Dotson and assured everyone that the veteran’s injury was not worse than previously reported and that the team is just being cautious and easing him back into action.“No, he’s right on track. He could’ve played last week if we needed him to. We don’t need a guy that’s in his 10th or 11th year to play in preseason O. J. Howard Jersey ,” Koetter said. “Look around the league, there were a lot of veteran players that didn’t play in preseason one.”Demar Dotson, according to PFF, gave up the second fewest QB pressures (minimum of 400 snaps) last season with a total of 14, so he is clearly a huge part of the Buccaneers offense. Like Koetter said, it wasn’t overly important for Dotson to play week one, but you would like to see him take at least a few snaps this upcoming week. The team clearly has a plan for Dotson Authentic Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , but Koetter was very brief on that plan and was non committal on whether or not Dotson will Play Saturday. “Yeah, I do know, but I’ll let you in on that a little later. Dot’s progressing fine. We’re easing him in as I said,” Koetter said. “He’s going in 11-on-11. He’s out there right in the middle of it. I’m very confident that Dot’s good to go.”Dotson has been practicing in 11-on-11 for quite a few practices now, so I would anticipate him playing on Saturday night even if it is only for a series or two.
