YESTERDAY IN BUC HISTORYAugust 26th 2016 - Something different!I am not going back to look at past pre-season games today! I want to enjoy last night’s excellent Buccaneer performance so here is Adam Humphries’ punt return touchdown during the second quarter.The normal daily look back at past games will resume tomorrow so apologies to all the Robert Claiborne fans out there who wanted to see his 1993 touchdown against the Browns that would have run.My thanks incidentally to all the people who post positive comments about these highlight clips on the BUC POWER Facebook page. We have had some interesting discussions in recent days over some of the plays with even the players involved adding their memories of the particular moment. I have a lot of new ones lined up for when the regular season flashbacks begin next week.

BUCS 30 BROWNS 13 - A ROCK-STAR PERFORMANCELet’s just check some of the things I wanted to see from the game against the Browns:-Some kind of decent offensive performance - CHECKThe passing game in shape - CHECKGood protection for Jameis - CHECKThe ball being spread around amongst the receivers - CHECKOn the defensive side, some pressure from the front four - CHECKRoberto Aguayo - nothing less than a perfect night is going to be enough - CHECKThat’s more checks than a Magnus Carlson World Championship chess game - the offense was just spectacular with Jameis passing for over 250 yards in the first half alone. Because that was all the playing time the first string needed - they were that good.Aguayo was perfect, the defense had eight sacks and the new video scoreboards at Raymond James Stadium had enough Buccaneer highlights to keep Tampa Bay fans around the world happy beyond their wildest expectations.Yes it is only the pre-season and yes it was only the Browns but the third pre-season game is the one that most people take notice of. And that performance on the field by Dirk Koetter’s squad last night will have earned them a lot of national attention.
