April 15th, 2014

Man, I just don’t get it. Lovie’s stifling these guys’ verbal creativity. We never would have won a Super Bowl if I couldn’t have called Simeon and Keyshawn mother %#@$^&’s every day. You think I could have had Chris Simms take us to the playoffs without ripping him a new assho*e every other %$^&’n minute? It’s unnatural, man.”

After a regime of Buccaneers cursing out the head coach and not being punished (see Talib vs. Raheem), followed by a regime that had rules for room temperature but not naughty language, change at One Buc Palace is significant on the potty-mouth front. [read more]

GMC Was A Lure For Michael Johnson

April 15th, 2014

It sure seems like Lovie Smith is putting a lot of pressure on free agent signee Michael Johnson to help revive a too-long dormant pass rush.

Johnson welcomes the responsibility but, he admits, part of the reason he chose to play for the Bucs was the prowess of defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. [read more]

Gerald McCoy explained that what’s new this season will look very old

Don’t think the Bucs are going to run the Glory Days, Tampa-2 defense as their core defense?

Well, Lovie Smith hasn’t changed much, says Gerald McCoy. It’s been all Tampa-2 study all the time at One Buc Palace this past week. [read more]

Joe has gone on record stating second-year defensive lineman Will Gholston could be a break out player for the Bucs this season. Judging by his rookie year, all signs point to Gholston being on every NFL offensive lineman’s radar. [read more]

McCown Talks About Drafting A QB At No. 7

April 15th, 2014

johnny football 0120Of course, Joe had to ask Josh McCown today at Bucs headquarters whether he spent time with the former college quarterbacks that visited One Buc Palace in recent days.

McCown talked about his brushes with Johnny Football, Teddy Bridgewater and Jimmy Garappolo, and he went on to explain his approach if the Bucs drafted a quarterback on Day 1 of the NFL Draft in 23 short days. [read more]

Michael Johnson Channels Simeon Rice

April 15th, 2014
New Bucs DE Michael Johnson spent much of Tuesday morning studying Simeon Rice.

New Bucs DE Michael Johnson spent much of Tuesday morning studying Simeon Rice.

Doctors throughout the Tampa Bay area were flooded with calls on Mondays last fall from patients who needed to re-up their blood pressure meds because the Bucs were so impotent at getting to opposing quarterbacks.

It was appalling for Joe as well, as he had to numb himself on Sunday nights with copious amounts of adult beverages to wash away the memories. [read more]

Mike James Is Running, Cutting, Ready

April 15th, 2014

mike james 1104Talented second-year running back Mike James stood before media today at One Buc Palace and was all smiles. His broken — and repaired – ankle is feeling great.

Looking rocked up and chiseled — James said he’s 232 pounds – he talked about his future and the loss of the offensive line behind which he was so successful last season. [read more]

Joe talked about leadership with McCown at One Buc Palace today

Starting quarterback Josh McCown talked about his approach to the new Bucs season this afternoon at One Buc Palace.

And Joe liked how McCown explained that his lauded leadership ability doesn’t mean he’s forcing anything or making speeches just because all eyes are on him as the starter out of the gate. [read more]

Mike Glennon’s Brother Ranks The QBs

In Stroud we trust?

Johnny Football impresses Glennon

Sean Glennon, Mike Glennon’s brother, was cut by the Vikings in 2009 after a solid quarterback career at Virginia Tech, where he was once the MVP of the ACC Championship game. 

Nowadays, Glennon, 28, checks in as a football analyst on Delaware sports radio, 1290 AM. And it’s no surprise that he watches plenty of film and likes to break down quarterbacks. [read more]

Quick Turnaround?

Is GM Jason Licht molding the Bucs after the Cardinals?

Is GM Jason Licht molding the Bucs after the Cardinals?

Lovie Smith and Jason Licht have stated publicly that Bucs fans don’t deserve another rebuilding stage. Given the fact the Bucs haven’t won a playoff game in 12 years, not since Chucky hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy aloft in victory, that’s a damned long time. [read more]

Only One Speed For Joe Cullen

April 15th, 2014

Joe recommends the latest “Meet The Coaches” feature on Buccaneers.com. Scott Smith goes deep with new defensive line coach Joe Cullen, Gerald McCoy’s sixth defensive line coach in five years.

Cullen, whose voice could land him in Mafia films, hits on a lot of topics in the roughly six-minute video, which prompted Joe to dive into further research. [read more]

Going After A Defensive Linemen?

April 15th, 2014
Joe expects DL Will Gholston to play a key role this fall.

Joe expects DL Will Gholston to play a key role this fall.

Joe wonders how many Bucs fans were thrown out of bars across the Tampa Bay area when they hurled beer at TVs after watching opposing quarterbacks have so much time in the pocket to throw. These QBs could have clipped their toenails and not been sacked.

Poor Gerald McCoy. He may be the best defensive tackle in the game and he got absolutely scant help trying to breathe on a quarterback. So when Bucs coach Lovie Smith took over, he wasted scant minutes (seconds?) in beefing up the defensive line. As a result, Joe thinks the defensive line is just fine. [read more]

Mike Glennon’s Future

A pair of BSPN types believe Bucs backup QB Mike Glennon is trade bait.

A pair of BSPN types believe Bucs backup QB Mike Glennon is trade bait.

The Mike Glennon Mob has come to grips with the fact their hero, barring injury to Josh McCown or the Bucs not drafting a quarterback next month (something Joe will lay cash that the Bucs indeed will do) will not start for at least two years.

That doesn’t mean the MGM has given up hopes that Glennon will someday rescue the Bucs from their postseason winless purgatory. [read more]
