Davin Joseph Throwing Bodies To The Ground

August 20th, 2013

Buccaneers Camp FootballAs down as Blistergate has many Bucs fans, Tampa Bay faithful should be uplifted by what’s happening at the other guard position.

Davin Joseph is progressing well. Yes, Joe heard Joseph talk on the subject, and Joseph practiced intensely the past two days. But Joe’s more excited by what he hears Joseph’s teammates saying about him and his surgically-repaired knee.

Take the Bucs’ resident strongman, rookie nose tackle Akeem Spence. He got his first taste of Joseph this week and was blown away.

“Davin, he a beast. Yeah, he a beast. Gerald used to tell me. Before, you know, I looked at [Joseph] and I just didn’t see it and then I lined up against him yesterday. He threw me to the ground,” Spence said. “The guy is good, man. I got a lot of respect for him.”

Gerald McCoy explained to reporters today about how Joseph has been sort of his personal training partner through past training camps and about how excited he was to have Joseph getting after him again. Per McCoy, he and Joseph have a rule where they agree to go at each other 100 percent and not hold back, all in the name of improvement.

Joseph also told Joe about how he gained inspiration through his rehabilitation remembering how Cadillac Williams — twice — fought threw the same torn patellar injury with a smile during the daily grind at One Buc Palace. Joseph said attitude, like Cadillac’s, is the key to a successful recovery.

Will Joseph be ready for opening day and the grind of a full season? Joe’s got a lot more hope than a week ago.

    “Blister Gate” Good one Joe!

    Ready to see Joseph go into full beast mode.

    RUMORED: Davin Joseph complained of heartburn.

    After sitting out one of practice, the Bucs medical staff found the Alien chest-burster living in his esophagus.

    He will likely miss 5 weeks after they put his insides back in.

    Joseph, Nicks, & Revis are starting to look like the arrows in Zeno’s Paradox: always getting closer & closer, but never quite getting there.

  5. Oahubuc Says:

    Joseph is underappreciated by many. He a beast alright.

    About time we get a glimmer of hope. At least we know the Muscle Hamster can run right.

    I know a lot of people are sad about Nicks maybe missing the opening week. But truthfully i would much rather have him miss the first couple games. Maybe even go on the PUP list and come back for the final stretch of the season as healthy as can be and maybe the inspiration that can take us into the playoffs. I would rather have that then him getting pushed in early getting injured again and out for the whole season.

    The first half of the season isn’t THAT brutal and we have a really strong team starting out. I can be ok with Missing Nicks the rest of the line is still intact and Larsen is at least semi decent.

    more than anything i am just happy to ave at least Davin back to start the season! Nicks will be there when he is ready and it will give our offense a nice boost!
