Dominik Has Little Faith In Bridgewater

Friday, April 18th, 2014

TCDominik11Given the widespread disdain for the scouting talents of former Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, Joe suspects the following will have some Bucs fans wanting to draft quarterback Teddy Bridgewater immediately.

Dominik took to the BSPN airwaves today to pour a bucket of cold water on Bridgewater’s potential. (more…)

“It Was Always Uptight”

Lavonte David talks about the difference between Greg Schiano and Lovie Smith.

Lavonte David talks about the difference between Greg Schiano and Lovie Smith.

There is a long list of casualties of college coaches who came to the NFL and either wore out their welcomes or just plain flopped. The recent success of Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh had, then-Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik and Team Glazer hopeing there was a trend and they were hopping on the bandwagon. (more…)

Drafting A Wide Receiver

Might FSU WR Kelvin Benjamin be too heavy and too inconsistent for the Bucs?

Might FSU WR Kelvin Benjamin be too heavy and too inconsistent for the Bucs?

Yes, the Bucs need a receiver. It’s even more important than ever to draft one after the trading of mattress-in-the-yard, blade-in-the-thigh, stripper pole-owning (allegedly) Mike Williams. Joe would fall over backwards if the Bucs didn’t draft a wide receiver at some point three weeks from now.

A lot of people are banging a drum for Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, who is basically a clone of Vincent Jackson. Joe loves the guy but, with a draft so deep in wide receivers, taking Evans at No. 7 is a reach when there are so many other strong wide receivers that can be had later in the draft for better value.

Jonathan Casillas

An interesting nugget dropped by lean-looking Mason Foster to media this week referenced his fellow starting linebacker from 2013, Schiano-man turned Lovie-man Jonathan Casillas.

Casillas is healthy now after minor knee surgery last fall, and Foster explained Casillas is currently the lead dog in the Buccaneers’ linebackers room. (more…)

Gruden: Coaching Will Make Johnny Football

Grudenlook

Gruden is sold, provided the coaching is right.

Father Dungy, longtime mentor and friend of Lovie Smith, already has expressed his faith in Johnny Football.

Now Bucs icon Chucky is taking his Johnny Football love a step further than his usual I-love-everybody rhetoric. Chucky, as chronicled by NFL.com, is all but guaranteeing Johnny Football’s success if he gets strong coaching. (more…)

Friday, April 18th, 2014

The intensity is heating up on the weekly JoeBucsFan Hour on WDAE-AM 620. Joe joined Steve Duemig last evening for the weekly showdown, and all kinds of heated Bucs discussion was on the table. Enjoy!

Derrick Brooks And The Hall Of Fame

Friday, April 18th, 2014

derrick brooks 0201aAll NFL fans like Joe are chomping at the bit for the draft get to here. It is 20 painful days away. Can’t get here soon enough.

But there’s another event Bucs fans are drooling over to arrive, and we have all but forgotten about it while in the fog of endless mock drafts. That is the induction of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014, which takes place 15 weeks from tomorrow, Aug. 2. (more…)

High Flying Josh McCown

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Undaunted by the millions Connor Barth lost last year because he got hurt playing in a charity basketball game, new Bucs starting quarterback Josh McCown put on a basketball uniform recently to join Anquan Boldin and other NFL players in a hoops game for the Pahokee, FL, community.

NFL Fan Pass produced a highlight reel, and McCown is the featured baller. (more…)

Mocking Derek Carr And The Bucs

Is Derek Carr a reach for the Bucs?

Is Derek Carr a reach for the Bucs?

Joe is convinced the Bucs will draft a quarterback next month in the NFL Draft. Whether it is Johnny Football in the first round, Derek Carr in the second around, Jimmy Garoppolo in the third round or Aaron Murray in the fourth round, Joe isn’t sure. Only time will tell.

Joe is willing to wager (but not much) that the Bucs will have a new quarterback come early May. (more…)

Start your day with the Morning Cup of Joe from HootersCalendar.com. And don’t forget to visit HootersCalendar.com for the 2014 calendar, amazing videos, pictures and cool gifts. It’s Joe’s second favorite website.

Bucs news forthcoming.

Tired of all the mock drafts? Joe is. This site monitors the mockers and grades them for accuracy. In short, Bucky Brooks should never be allowed to do a mock draft again since he is working for NFL.com. [The Huddle Report]

This is a unique request. [CraigsList]

Joe never knew one could get so aroused by eating Wendy’s and sitting in front of Walgreens. [WPBF]

Cops should know better than to disrupt a man who is, um, well, in the middle of dancing with himself. [NBC-2]

The Secret Service vs. Mr. Met. [CBS New York]

Model shoots hoops in attire you don’t normally see basketball players wear (and wouldn’t want to). Bravo to the photographer for picking just the right camera angle! [TheBigLead]

The Rays are just a hot mess right now. [RaysIndex]

lovie and lichtSmokescreen or the pulse from a true insider?

Looking For Road Graders

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
Might the Bucs trade back and nab Notre Dame G Zack Martin?

Might the Bucs trade back and nab Notre Dame G Zack Martin?

Joe has typed several times over the past few weeks that he’s not all that enamored with the offensive line of the Bucs. Anthony Collins is a nice pickup and is a fine pass blocker, but Collins has never started eight games in a season much less 16. That is a red flag to Joe. (more…)

Mocking Gabe Jackson At No. 38

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Gabe JacksonJoe realizes there are plenty of BSPN faithful among us, people who believe that if a BSPN mouthpiece says something, well, it’s as if Moses is talking at Mt. Sinai. It reminds Joe of those old EF Hutton TV commercials of his youth.

So in the spirit of the BSPNites, Joe will reveal the latest from helmet hair draft guru Mel Kiper, who behind a BSPN pay wall revealed his latest two round mock draft this afternoon. (more…)
