“Growing Chance” For Josh Freeman

September 3rd, 2015

It used to be all about No. 5 in Tampa.

Josh Freeman was the guy. He was the 22-year-old, do-it-all quarterback who lit up the NFL with 25 touchdowns and just six interceptions for a winning Bucs team in 2010. [read more]

GMC, Lovie and the Bucs’ future.

What is the floor for the Bucs this season?.

Joe has written time and again this year’s Bucs are a six-win team. The Bucs were 2-14 for a reason.

This team needs players, and starting three rookies on offense, including two on the front line and another at quarterback, which may pay off big time in the future, very easily could cause speed bumps in the early going. [read more]

September 2nd, 2015

bucs cheerleader 0918Perhaps the clash between Marcus Mariota and America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, will draw a beer-soaked sellout to the stadium on Dale Mabry Highway in 11 short afternoons.

Regardless, this Bucs-Titans ticket is getting a lot hotter. [read more]

Free agent cornerback Tim Jennings doesn’t seem overly excited to sign with Bucs if he needs to snooze.

So yesterday, free agent and former Lovie cornerback with the Bears, Tim Jennings, paid a visit to One Buc Palace to see if he and the Bucs would be a good fit. [read more]

The Henry Melton Experiment

Test run at defensive end.

Test run at defensive end.

Joe isn’t sure what has Bucs fans freaked out more: The prospect of America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller, Jameis Winston, being maimed or the continued years-long struggle to find someone, anyone, to get consistent heat on an opposing quarterback.

If Bucs fans can see the problem in a drunken daze on 70-inch HDTV, trust Joe, so too can Bucs officials, including defensive shot-caller Lovie Smith. [read more]

TV Ratings Dip For Browns-Bucs

September 2nd, 2015

Convincing non-believers.

On Aug. 15, the debut of Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, was quite an event across the Tampa Bay area on WFLA-TV, Ch. 8.

TV-ratings numbers were extremely strong, but the euphoria has not sustained. [read more]

Gerald McCoy responds

Three-time Pro Bowler or not, Gerald McCoy can’t find love from former Bucs guard Ian Beckles (1990-1996).

Lovie slams brakes on quick return.

It seemed like a few weeks ago that Kenny Bell not only was a mortal leadpipe lock to make the final-53, he may have been the No. 3 receiver.

Now, on Sept. 2, there is doubt if Bell even makes the final-53. [read more]

Top 10 Defense?

A massive turnaround for Lovie's defense this fall?

A massive turnaround for Lovie’s defense this fall?

Even though the Bucs got pounced on by the Brownies last weekend, it’s easy to forget the Bucs had five 3-and-outs on defense. Not too shabby.

Last year, the defense started horribly. It did improve, but to be honest, it had nowhere to go but up. [read more]

If NFL offensive lines are really as bad as some believe, then Lovie should be able to develop a pass rush, no?

Yes, yesterday, Joe brought word from various sources that the Bucs may not be nearly as bad on the offensive line as some believe after watching the jailbreak that was the Cleveland pass rush Saturday.

For example, spreadsheeters of Pro Football Focus contend the Bucs are no worse than sixth-worst during this preseason along the offensive line, without factoring the Bucs started two rookies (who will only improve) and camp meat (who won’t start in the regular season). [read more]
