Miserable Offensive Line

November 27th, 2014

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

One would have thought that when Tampa Bay purged just about every capable offensive lineman from its roster last spring, that the concept was to improve, not to get your skilled position players maimed.

Joe wonders how four 2013 starters were tossed overboard, and all found a way to start and produce with other offensive lines – two for playoff-bound teams. Maybe Bucs overlord of football operations Lovie Smith was a bit too quick to pull the trigger? [read more]

A lot of Tampa Bay fans want to throw so many players in the chilly Gulf right now; Joe is sure they don’t know where to start.

Bucs Getting Better, Says Marvin Lewis

November 26th, 2014

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Remember what may have been the most drama-filled Bucs offseason?

It was when Father Dungy was launched and Team Glazer hunted for a new head coach, the man who eventually was Chucky, because Team Glazer found general manager Richie McKay’s offerings unsatisfactory.

Fun times, especially when Team Glazer made a deal with the devil [Al Davis] for Chucky. [read more]

Bucs defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier believes Mark Barron’s successor at safety is a big reason why the defense has improved.

Bucs defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier sure seemed more upbeat than usual today in his weekly press briefing. Maybe it is because of the looming Thanksgiving holiday, which he termed “great” with emphasis.

Or, it could be his defense is no longer wretched. [read more]

Chucky Back In Coaching Mode

November 26th, 2014

chucky 0506

The world’s greatest coach, who just loves football and loves to talk football but doesn’t want to coach football, is back at it.

Chucky participated in a promotional video for GoPro to show how much the video camera can help high school football programs.

Naturally, Chucky broke out his fired football coaches schtick as if he is some martyr. This drives Joe nuts. Get over it, Chucky. [read more]
