Just Win BabyAugust 26th, 2014
The vote yesterday was eye-opening and depressing. Bucs fans just don’t care.
Joe has long believed that Bucs fans, if they recognize a name no matter his background or worth, no matter what type of defense or offense he played in, think a recognizable name would better the Bucs.
That is the only logical reason Joe can gleam from widespread celebration of news Lovie Smith was bringing in sleazy Richie Incognito for an interview. Fans recognize the name, so he must be good.
Has Incognito ever left a team, college or pro, voluntarily or in good standing? And how is it Incognito, if he was so talented, never found his way onto a roster of a good team? Strange, no?
Well, one who really is both depressed about the news and disappointed in Bucs fans is former Bucs defensive end Steve White. The local sports media cult celebrity spent time this spring as a coaching intern with Lovie and seems downright in the dumps that Bucs fans are welcoming Incognito with open arms, as if he holds the secret key to a Super Bowl win.
Kinda seems like some Bucs fans are so starved for a winner that they’d take Charles Manson right now if he could block good. Damn shame

White, who played for the Bucs in every season Father Dungy coached the team, probably is wondering what is happening to his team. Joe can’t imagine the beloved Father Dungy ever thinking of bringing Incognito into the fold.
