“Harping On That Since Day 1”

April 13th, 2014

willl gholston 0310So what’s going on inside Lovieball after new head coach Lovie Smith has spent seven days with his team?

More clues and comments are dribbling out, and the de-feathered “Hawk” offered a couple of chirps to Buccaneers.com.

Dashon Goldson, the former All-Pro safety and current target of Roger Goodell, spoke in this video about how there’s huge emphasis on getting to quarterbacs, saying the new regime has been “harping on that since Day 1.”

Boy, wouldn’t that be a breath of fresh air, a Bucs team striking fear in quarterbacks. Joe hasn’t seen that raw fear since Greg (aka Stylez) White burst onto the scene in 2007, with eight sacks and seven forced fumbles in part-time duty.  The Bucs were No. 1 in the NFL against the pass that season and had the second-ranked defense in the league.

How much is Lovie emphasizing pass rush? In the same video, Bucs defensive line coach Joe Cullen said of the Bucs’ D-line. “We have to be the leaders of the organization,” Cullen said. 

Also interesting to Joe was Goldson saying he felt the Bucs’ new strength staff was doing some “pretty intense” stuff, seemingly more than he’s used to. Goldson is a bit of a workout nut, so that’s a great sign.

    Go BUCS!!!

    Works for me.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Our Defense will be very tenacious!!!

  4. brandonbucfan Says:

    The way the game is today putting pressure on the QB cannot be emphasized enough. Teams are passing more than ever on first and second down and the pressure can get you where you want them..3rd and long or maybe even a turnover.

  5. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Heard recently that our Beastly Defensive End Adrian Clayborn is in great shape. Gonna be great to see him healthy again. Should be a key part to our rotation this year.

    GO BUCS!

  6. Oregon Buc Says:

    They will also rotate more to have fresher guys in the fourth quarter. GMAC and Clayborn would have to play 60+ snaps a game. GMAC had to wave his hand to get a breather.

    @Oregon Buc: Having an offense that can hold onto the ball for long drives will help that tremendously.

  8. Maze Says:

    Will be looking to draft this new and improved Bucs defence for my defending fantasy football team. L&L need to add another pass rusher and a corner in this draft to hopefully bring this defence to the next level.

  9. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @Oregon Buc

    IMO would be wise to drop GMC’s play count to around 800. Keep’em free for the whole season.

  10. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Drop GMC’s play count to around (800) per year/ (50) per game

  11. RastaMon Says:

    Stunt those QB’ silly Lovie !

  12. kevin Says:

    Yeah…teams are passing more than ever on first and second downs….except greg schianos offense the last two years.

  13. Oregon Buc Says:

    @tristanberry: We will have fewer 3 and outs with Tedfords offense. Gonna be fun to watch the offense for a change.

    @luvmybucs: McDonald and Spence will ease the load for GMAC. Think about the Seahawks D line rotation. Around 30-40 snaps max each. Bennett still had 8 sacks.

    Season will be fun to watch!!

  14. kevin Says:

    And maybe with clayborne off the leash we will finally see his game take off. Still skeptical on bowers but I think claiborne will be much like mccoy. He will be a huge part of our success on defense when used PROPERLY!!!!

    I tried to speak to you diplomatically but it seems that you don’t have a clue what was being said. So, I have decided to make it plain. YOU ARE A PERVERT. YOUR LANGUAGE IS PERVERTED. YOUR GIRLIE PICTURES ARE PERVERTED, YOUR MIND IS PERVERTED, AND YOU SPREAD YOUR PERVERSION LIKE A CANCER. Whatever it takes, I think you are going down. You can’t keep on this path without a horrible end. You write an article and you put your perversion in your sports articles. Last week my wife and I were in a local family dollar store and noticed a SI Swim Suit issue at the front counter. Do you know what we did? We called headquarters and they removed it from the store. I am going to find a way to have you removed in the same way. I don’t know how long it will be but there are decent people out here, families, teens, children, and wives that don’t appreciate your gutter language, mind, and pictures. You are a first class sexual pervert. Someone like you needs to be locked up and throw the key away. You are going down. That is a promise.

    A few things. One, there is no chance whatsoever that JoeBucsFan.com would get anything but a PG-13 rating from the Hollywood movie ratings body. That is undeniable. Joe is far less “perverted” than the majority of morning radio shows on the PUBLIC airwaves, stations in partnership and ruled by the federal government, aka the FCC. As a citizen, I’m proud to hear that you used your influence in a private business and had the SI swimsuit issue removed. Congrats. That’s what communication is all about. It’s the American way. But to come here and vow to get Joe locked up and issue threats. That’s far more “perverted” than anything that comes off Joe’s keyboard. Surely there are much bigger perverted fish for your fryer than Joe. –Joe

  16. gotbbucs Says:

    A defense that doesn’t try to use Clayborn as a stand up OLB would be a great start.

    Just ask Clayborn how much he enjoyed that BS last year.

  17. gotbbucs Says:

    @David Williams

    Is somebody forcing you by gun point to come to this website?

  18. BucNasty!!! Says:

    @Oregon Buc

    Luv Seattle rotation, and backend support.

    But when comes to Defensive line rotation; Carolina’s takes it.


    1st wave
    • (DRE)-Greg Hardy
    • (DRT)-Star Lotulelei
    • (DLT)-Kawann Short
    • (DLE)-Charles Johnson

    2nd wave
    • (DRE)-Mario Addison
    • (DRT)-Dwan Edwards
    • (DLT)-Colin Cole
    • (DLE)-Frank Alexander

    *DLE-Wes Horton
    *DLE-Frank Alexander

    Players get injured, they just plug guys into the rotation

    Wouldn’t that be great to have goldson at mlb?

  21. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    @ David Williams
    Perhaps you should consider converting to being Amish..no Internet to tempt you. If that doesn’t work consider going to one of my favorite sites..thechive.com. KCCO brother.

  22. Kevin Says:

    @ David Williams….REALLY???? This site is far from perverted or gutter. I mean REALLY??? I feel sorry for you man…I mean it’s all good to have your own beliefs and morals, but you act like joe’s running a porn site here. It’s sports. Didn’t you notice every single NFL game with the cheerleaders dancing in skimpy clothing EVERY GAME???? And the family dollar removed the SI swimsuit magazine for ya huh??? GOOD FOR YOU MAN!!! Just so you know they put it right back out as soon as you walked out the door. This is weird….where did this come from??? It’s called entertainment man. If you don’t like it….DON’T LOOK!!! GO TO CHURCH, CUT OFF YOUR CABLEAND INTERNET, GO TO WORK AND NEVER DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT BECAUSE IF YOU DO, you will be greeted with this kind of stuff just about everywhere you go. HOLY HELL I THOUGHT MY PARENTS WERE BAD. I would have had to run away for sure if I grew up with you.

  23. Bucnjim Says:

    Yep! In short this is a site for MEN and of course women are more that welcome. If you’re not a Man then no this is probably not for you.

  24. tmaxcon Says:


    Pewter Report is probably a better fit for you with their constant Faith and Christianity posts…

    Joe Keep the ladies coming my man!!!! Make it rain!

    Especially the dark haired with red top you posted a few days ago… my favorite by far.

  25. tmaxcon Says:


    David Williams post is attacking all of us who enjoy the finer things in life.

    I know there is a lot of verbal sparing and down right attacks over the Johnny Football vs Glennon Mob going on. Maybe we can all come together to assist a fellow buc fan in dire need of some old fashion entertainment. Again, I know it gets a little hostile (which I find hilarious) on these pages some days that being said, I hope everyone in the long run wants the same thing and that’s another super bowl.

    Anyhow, here is my suggestion, have you post one of those donation pages similar to your Birthday Donation page so we can assist Mr. Williams in enjoying life a bit. Call it Williams Lap Dance fund or Wake up David it’s a wild wild world fund… I bet we can raise enough funds for back to back to back Lap dances…. Start slow with the basics…. Girls, Girls, Girls transition to Pour Some Sugar On Me and end with Cherry Pie… I am sure that will loosen Mr. Williams up a bit. Maybe if he’s lucky Cinnamon, Ebony and Harmony will give him an encore. If he’s lucky.

    Just trying to help a fellow buc fan in need. Even though he attacked 98% of red blooded males that I have ever met. again, just trying to help.

    “We will have fewer 3 and outs with Tedfords offense. Gonna be fun to watch the offense for a change.”


    Exactly what offense is that??? We are down 2WRs and half an offensive line, and not enough high picks to fill the needs. We will have zero offense this year. Jason Licht and lovie took care of that.

    I understand most of it, but it is what it is.

  27. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    We should give David Williams a try out… maybe he can fill out need at WR….

  28. tmaxcon Says:

    relax bonzi the sky is not falling…

    The offense can’t get any worse than 32nd that they were last year. thankfully the raiders are dysfunctional enough to ensure the Bucs are not last again especially if Schaub turns a performance like he did last year. Plenty of time for bucs to address the oline after draft cuts, training camp casualties etc.. and grab a wide receiver in the 2nd and 5th rounds.

    Don’t give up hope sir!

  29. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    tmaxcon, I am a devout, spirit-filled christian and I probably am in the top five in number of daily visits to this website. I’ve seen nothing from Joe that was perverted.

    While the comments about Manziel “pulling” were slightly offensive, perhaps I’m more tolerant because I am myself a writer. I believe in freedom of speech and of expression.

    The way I see it, Joe owns the website. He can do what he wants with it.

    “David Williams” can’t do a thing. Especially since there are plenty of porn sites that do much worse.

    While Joe and I are different types of writers (I write fiction), I completely see his point of view. He formed this sight, I imagine, so that he could freely express himself.

    And, please remember, not all God-faring men are like “David Williams”.

  30. NoFlyZone Says:

    I hope Bowers steps a big step this offseason, given he is completely healthy. I believe Clayborn is in for a strong season because he should be healthy and hungry after all that took place last season with his talents being wasted.

    While our D-Line has not played a down together yet, I do believe that with the new staff in place, they can be dominant. I don’t know if we will shock anyone but if the team can gel with the new pieces, we could be in for a great season.

    “Relax bonzi the sky is not falling…The offense can’t get any worse than 32nd that they were last year.”

    Well…you got me there. Worse we can do is a lateral move.

  32. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Here’s a question…if the offense had been healthier…under Glennon…would they have been better?

    What if a polarizing QB was in, like a Manziel?

    Injuries killed the team last year.

  33. tmaxcon Says:


    i am a little confused by your post. I was not being hostile or mocking Mr. Williams religion in anyway. I hope that is not what you are suggesting. I would never attack anyone’s religious beliefs.

    I was being 100% serious… Not sure if you follow PR but Scott has been posting several posts that have came under criticism for the extensive use faith based or Christianity language. Just thought he would be better off reading articles their.

    Tolerance is a two way street though and no way shape or form are any of the pictures joe posts xrated or perverted. Racy maybe but not crossing the line in my opinion. I understand that each individual has their own line in the sand, if you will that being said I HATE THE PC POLICE WITH A PASSION…. RESPECT AND TOLERANCE CAN GO ALONG WAY… If someone does not like it dont visit. simple as that.

  34. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    I totally respect your position Bonzai., I have my own spiritual beliefs,..but I always have the the same question when someone tries to interject their position (not you)…. who are they to sit in judgment of me…who are they to try to sit in judgment of me..based on their belief, how would the “Almighty’ feel about someone else sitting in judgment of me..

  35. tmaxcon Says:

    Bonzi, I don’t see the potential in Glennon that others do. does not mean he is a bad guy I just feel he is not the right guy to takes us back to the big one. I think he’d be a solid back up. My fear of him starting is he would tease us simple as that. win just enough games not to get canned but not enough to win the big one. No one and I mean no one on this site regardless of how important or smart they think they are knows how any of these quarterbacks will turn out. for every brady 6th round reference I can come up with a Ryan leaf example. Teams actually were on the fence who was better Manning or Leaf remember that. It’s a crap shoot to say the least. no one can predict how a player will act once his some cash in his pocket nor can injuries be predicted. I guess that’s what makes these debates so passionate yet entertaining.

  36. Eric Says:

    Lovie really ought to be able to get this defense on a turnover machine roll, as he did in Chicago.

    Gonna be a really fun season.

  37. Maze Says:

    Got the SI swimsuit issue removed from the dollar store. LMAO. Get a life you wierdo…

  38. teacherman Says:

    @David Williams

    You are really uptight.

    I think you are the sexual pervert because you REPRESS sexuality like a pedophilic catholic priest.

  39. flmike Says:

    @David Williams
    Along with your religious freedom comes my FREEDOM FROM YOUR RELIGION. I like naked ladies, I like smokin weed, I like rock and roll and I’m prolly goin’ to hell, but you know what, those are my choices to make, not yours to make for me.

  40. biff barker Says:

    Joe, I’m not sure why you even responded to Jerry Fallwell’s idle threats.

    Clicking a link is a choice just like faith is.

  41. Manzielski Says:

    I believe the new Pope has admitted that Hell really does not exist. Never did. They were lying. Lying is far worse in my book than looking at young girls in bikinis.

    Then you have pedophilia. I would never let my child go to an over night bible study camp or join the scouts. I never tried to put an end to religion or scouting, just my opinion.
