Truly fantastic interview here that Bucs fans — new and old — will want to see. (more…)

Injuries Killed 2010 Class

Saturday, January 31st, 2015
Former Bucs DT Brian Price never recovered fully from a freak injury early in his rookie year.

Former Bucs DT Brian Price never recovered fully from a freak injury early in his rookie year.

It is often said, and Joe agrees, that it takes three seasons to fairly assess whether a draft class was any good.

However, in this microwave, DVR-rewind, drive-through age we live in, few want to wait three weeks much less three years for anything. (more…)

Derrick Brooks is putting on the pressure

Crab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, former national champion Jameis Winston, the pride of Florida State University, continues to look like a much better quarterback prospect than Mike Glennon and Josh McCown.

It’s Joe’s daily nugget on the Jameis Watch, celebrating the best quarterback to wear No. 5 ever in the state of Florida. (more…)

“It Meant A Lot”

LeGarrette Blount talks to Joe at Super Bowl Media Day

LeGarrette Blount talks to Joe at Super Bowl Media Day

LeGarrette Blount is a superstar these days, far removed from the days of Commander Schiano not knowing how to use him.

Now he’s the big, nasty, sometimes misbehaving running back on the AFC Champs playing for a Hall of Fame head coach. (more…)

“Whether You Intend To Or Not …”

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Mike BajakianSo how will new Tampa Bay quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian drill and guide the mind and body of Jameis Winston a shiny new Buccaneers rookie quarterback?

Joe’s got some insight. (more…)

“A Complete Jerk”

Rodney Harrison of NBC Sports invoked the notorious Ryan Leaf in discussing the Bucs need to draft a quarterback.

Rodney Harrison of NBC Sports invoked the notorious Ryan Leaf in discussing the Bucs

Yes, Joe brought you the explosive words from Phoenix for Dashon Goldson, delivered by former Chargers and Patriots safety Rodney Harrison. It was blunt and it was passionate and it was not pretty.

But it wasn’t just Goldson that had Harrison’s attention. (more…)

Trading Down

Friday, January 30th, 2015
Eagles strongman Chip Kelly would have to trade away his team to get the No. 1 pick from the Bucs.

Eagles strongman Chip Kelly would have to trade away his team to get the No. 1 pick from the Bucs.

A segment of misguided Bucs fans really believes the Bucs should trade down in the draft. Really, it’s true.

For reasons Joe cannot grasp, the team is in position to rid itself of the ball and chain that has kept this franchise in the lower reaches for far too many years, and address its most important and glaring need. (more…)

Steve Mariucci Talks To Joe

Friday, January 30th, 2015

steve mariucci

Man, yesterday was a zoo at radio row at the Super Bowl. And Joe learned something: Handlers of every two-bit celebrity (not to mention the real celebrities) DO NOT like reporters.

These suits have no use for reporters. The hired guns treated Joe and others like mosquitoes, swatting at them and shoveling their clients from radio table to radio table. A reporter wanting questions just screws up everything for them. (more…)

Davin Joseph Questions Dotson Relocation

demar dotson 1216Demar Dotson has been an almost average right tackle on an underperforming offensive line for two consecutive seasons.

And now your Tampa Bay Buccaneers want him to shift to left tackle — as he approaches his 30th birthday. (more…)

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

The dot connecting sect of the Marcus Mariota Gang erupted in glee yesterday when Adam Schefter became the second BSPNer in recent weeks to knight the Oregon quarterback as the first overall pick in April’s draft.

Never mind that Mariota hasn’t been interviewed by the Bucs. Never mind he has a bum shoulder. Never mind he hasn’t had a pro day. Never mind he has never diagrammed a play for the Tampa Bay. Never mind the NFL Scouting Combine is a month away. (more…)

“That Defense Will Get Eaten Alive”

Thursday, January 29th, 2015
Favre

Brett Favre offers an intriguing take

Joe was very intrigued to hear of Brett Favre’s recent commentary on old school Tampa-2 defense.

And, yes, Lovie Smith is running old school Tampa-2. (more…)

O-Line May Not Be That Bad

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Spreadsheeters don’t think the pass blocking of the Bucs was all that horrible.

Joe has stated before he would not be shocked if the Bucs replaced four of their five starting offensive linemen.

Apparently, those who make a living with Excel spreadsheets have other ideas. The nerds over at Pro Football Focus banged out data on pass blocking for every NFL team, and if you think Josh McCown was a garish turnover machine, well, you may be wrong. (more…)

Schefter: “Sights Set” On Marcus Mariota

Tim Wright Talks To Joe

Former Bucs TE Tim Wright, now a member of the Patriots, talked about his days with the Pewter Pirates, some of the most turbulent in franchise history;.

Former Bucs TE Tim Wright, now a member of the Patriots, talked about his days with the Pewter Pirates, some of the most turbulent in franchise history;.

One of Joe’s favorite players is in the Super Bowl this Sunday. Naturally, he’s not playing for the Bucs.

Tight end Tim Wright was used for trade bait to lure he-left-his-heart-in-New England barbecue pitmaster guard Logan Mankins. Since, Wright has continued to develop as a fine NFL player and Mankins is still searching for that elusive spot in Florida for a barbecue. (more…)
