Bucs Beat

The dropsies are back



Jon Gruden constantly laments the number of dropped passes during 2006, when the Bucs were done in partly by numerous dropped balls by receivers and backs.

And there have been a few days during training camp when the Bucs reverted to last season's habits. Well, Tuesday was another one of those days.

Gruden2_4 We saw drops by a litany of receivers today, including David Boston, Chad Lucas, Maurice Stovall and Cadillac Williams. And, afterward, Gruden expressed continued frustration with the issue.

"Unfortunately we had three of four dropped balls today, and we did that last year in games," Gruden said. "I'm a big believer that what you see on the practice field you're going to see on Sunday. Unfortunately, (what happened) today is not what I want our players to be associated with. We have to make those plays, and that's just the bottom line."
