Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs NO (12 / 8 / 144 / 0 rec)

Jackson finally put together the game many are accustomed to seeing from the big physical wide receiver. Jackson beat the Saints in pretty much every way on Sunday. He caught long balls, short balls, and got yards after the catch as well. Jackson made a brilliant move on a 12-yard out route and slide to make a catch, however wasn't touched by a defender. He leaped to his feet and scampered for an extra 10 yards. The most impressive part of Jackson's day has to be the yards after the catch aspect. In addition to the play described above, Jackson caught two 7-yard hitches and turned them into 40 combined yards. Jackson ran every type of route as well. He caught hitches, slants, crossing routes, back shoulder throws, and even a 35-yard catch on a busted play circus grab. At the snap, Jackson broke off the line and ran a post, Glennon scrambled to his left all the way to the sideline, twisted his body and threw a high spiral back across the field. Jackson adjusted his route and simply sprinted down field. The ball fell into his arms as defensive backs converged, but he held onto the ball after taking a few hits. Jackson played very physical at the line of scrimmage, getting off jams easily and winning balls in the air against overmatched defensive backs.

2014 Week 6 vs BAL (13 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)

Jackson was overshadowed by his teammates in Sunday's tilt with the Ravens. That's not to say they didn't look Jackson's way in this game. In fact, they desperately tried to involve Jackson in the offense, but the Ravens did a great job in coverage. Jackson while only hauling in four receptions, saw thirteen targets on the day. Jackson couldn't shake free of the Ravens coverage on Sunday. He was able to free himself at the line with physical moves to get by the jams, unfortunately the blowout made the Bucs one dimensional and the Ravens adjusted accordingly. Many of Glennon's passes were errant. Some of the targets were basically throw aways in Jackson's direction that were scored as targets. Jackson did have a highlight reel catch late in the first half. From midfield, Jackson got an easy outside release on the corner, slammed on the breaks with a nice double move and shot back up the sideline. Glennon lofted the pass high but a little too far inside as Jackson was outside his receiver. Jackson adjusted and cut in front of his defender making a basket catch. The defender reaches in and jars the ball loose as Jackson falls to the ground but he gathers the ball back in after a bobble for a 33-yard gain. Jackson's final stat line looks as though he took a back seat to the Bucs' other receivers in today's game plan, but he was the most targeted receiver and the Ravens had the advantage of rolling coverage to Jackson because they knew the Bucs were in pass mode down 35 points early. Overall, Jackson played well, but didn't have a big statistical day.

Buccaneers | Bucs not shopping Vincent Jackson (Mon Oct 20, 05:29 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson's name came up over the weekend in reports that the team was fielding phone calls from interested teams, but head coach Lovie Smith said Monday, Oct. 20, that the team isn't interested in trading their star receiver.

Our View: The Jackson don't have many weapons on offense. They couldn't really afford to get rid of Jackson.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson sits out of practice (Mon Oct 20, 02:18 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (undisclosed) did not practice Monday, Oct. 20.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson on trade block? (Sun Oct 19, 12:09 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson has received trade interest from other teams, and the Buccaneers are open to anything even though they love Jackson.

Our View: This sounds more like a "what if" than a real story about Jackson's future. The list of players that have garnered trade interest from other teams is probably very long, and most teams are open to anything in theory.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson not capitalizing (Tue Oct 14, 05:27 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson is fifth among wide receivers in targets (60) but has converted just 25 of them into catches.

Our View: He currently has a 43.1 percent reception per route run rate. That is well below the league average of 65.4 percent. With only one drop credited to Jackson, it shows that the Bucs QBs (mostly Mike Glennon) are off then throwing the ball at the big man.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson likely to go (Sun Oct 12, 11:11 AM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) is likely to play Sunday, Oct. 12.

Our View: Jackson has generally played well through injuries in the past. He could draw Jimmy Smith, a young corner on the rise, but Jackson is still worth a play as at least a WR3/Flex.
