New, comments

The Locked On Bucs podcast airs some grievances through two preseason games that may be causes for concern down the line.

On the latest episode of the Locked On Bucs podcast, David Harrison and myself air out a few of our concerns through two preseason games.

No, no one is hitting the panic button yet, but there are a few things that can quickly become habit rather than outlier. If they become habit, it will cost them big plays - and big games - come the regular season.

No, Ronald Jones II has not looked good thus far. There is a lot of excitement and high expectations surrounding the second round pick, but as of now Peyton Barber is the clear cut number one guy. Meanwhile, RoJo needs to trust himself - and his teammates - more.

On the other side of the ball, Kwon Alexander did not have a good game Saturday in Nashville. In fact, a lot of the defense took bad angles, missed tackles, and looked out of sync. The defense has to be able to clean these things up before week one gets here as they will have the tall task of keeping the vaunted New Orleans Saints’ offense in check to allow Ryan Fitzpatrick a chance at stealing a win.
