April 24th, 2014

When Demar Dotson stands up, he is one large man. Part of that is the Bucs offensive right tackle stands a whopping 6-9, 315. He’s a friggin’ billboard.

Dotson, one of the nicest guys Joe has ever dealt with, is also the last man standing from the 2013 offensive line. Gone is Donald Penn. Gone is Ted Larsen. Gone is Jeremy Zuttah. Gone is Davin Joseph. Carl Nicks remains in toe purgatory, relegated to watching practice from the sidelines. [read more]

Gerald McCoy appeared this morning on what sometimes is a terrible show, NFL Network’s “NFL AM.” When that show is co-hosted by that empty-head Nicole Zaloumis, she totally drags the show down to an unwatchable level. All she wants to talk about is friggin’ dancing. Otherwise, she rarely opens her trap.

At least with traffic-stopping hottie Molly Qerim, she knows football and is an asset to the show (in more ways than one). [read more]
