Joe’s head is about to explode from things being written in recent days. It boils down to there is way too much time between the NFL Scouting Combine and the draft. [read more]
Joe never understood the vile hatred too many had for former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik. Yes, it took him a while to learn the NFL ropes, but once he did he was just fine.
Sadly, he was Pearl Harbored when leaky, sleepy quarterback Josh Freeman went mental. [read more]

So how down on the Bucs offensive line is former Tampa Bay tight end Anthony Becht? He’s talking about a fifth-round pick stepping in and possibly starting at center or guard. [read more]
What’s fair and just is not the NFL’s top concern. [read more]
Back at the NFL Scouting Combine, Joe talked to Penn State left tackle Donovan Smith and shared that Tampa Bay already talked to Smith several times.
Since then, Smith, a true manbeast at 6-6, 338 pounds, climbed draft boards and is looking like a second-round pick. [read more]
In recent weeks, NFL Network’s top draft guru, Mike Mayock, has really turned on Jameis Winston. Not sure what got into Mayock but it is getting comical.
Joe gets why Mayock had a bug up his rear end about Winston for the longest time, and it is a fair issue — Winston’s behavior off the field. Again, that is fair. [read more]
