Bowers played more than half the Bucs’ defensive snaps by Joe’s count, but the fourth-year defensive end didn’t show up on the stat sheet. [read more]
Joe repeatedly cautioned fans all offseason that it is virtually impossible to win the NFC South title, let alone a Super Bowl, with the worst quarterback in the division.
Therefore, Joe painfully and loudly ached and trumpeted for the Bucs to draft a quarterback with “franchise” potential because every other viable QB option was a waste of time.
In the spring, Josh McCown and Mike Glennon represented hoping for a football miracle at the position. So the smart move was to recognize the need at quarterback and attack it in the draft. That didn’t happen.
Now, in McCown, the Bucs have the fifth best quarterback in the NFC South. Yes, Joe would take Panthers backup and Bucs killer Derek Anderson over McCown.
Joe is finished hoping for the McCown miracle that Lovie Smith banked on. Once again, it’s time for the Bucs to make a decisive, smart move at quarterback. It’s time to relegate McCown to the bench permanently. [read more]

A former glory days Buccaneer joins a longtime NFL personnel man in being completely stunned by the ineptitude and poor technical play of the Buccaneers defense. [read more]
Outside of Danny Lansanah’s pick-six, Joe can’t think of a damned thing that went right Thursday night. Trailing 56-0 at one point — the worst deficit in Buccaneers history — the alley-beating was the nastiest Joe had ever seen delivered.
Something must change. You can’t just do the exact same things and expect a different result. That was appalling. [read more]
That’s the assessment of longtime NFL personnel man Chris Landry, who has worked as an assistant coach and scout for Bill Belichick, coordinator of the Titans scouting department, among other positions in pro and college football.

Greg Schiano was supposed to be a defensive guy, having been a defensive coach all his adult life. He never trailed a team by 56 points in a game, at least not in the NFL.
Raheem Morris, long considered by many Bucs fans as simply nothing more than a baffoon, had his share of beatdowns as a Bucs head coach, especially in his final season. Raheem, who learned the hard way it is hard to control a team when you are at the bars, never trailed in a game by 56 points. [read more]
When an NFL team trails its division rival by 56 points, it doesn’t matter how much confidence a coach has in his system; it doesn’t matter how smart he may think he is at talent evaluation; doesn’t matter if he believes winning ways are just around the corner.
Changes must take place. [read more]

It appears that scenario has been pushed up considerably. [read more]
