Call it the Double-D Dance. And no, get your heads out of the gutter. This has nothing to do with bouncy, unwieldy objects in a clothing-optional establishment.
It was the Demar Dotson touchdown celebration. It was part-Beyonce, part Deion Sanders and all 6-9, 315 pounds of Bucs tackle Demar Dotson. (more…)
Just by reading comments on this here corner of the interwebs, Joe knows Bucs fans are staring at the ceiling deep into the night trying to figure out how the Bucs will replace departed left guard Carl Nicks.
One could argue the Bucs also had a hole at right guard after Davin Joseph departed. Consider one of the candidates to win a starting job, Patrick Omameh, not overly concerned. (more…)
A day off today for All-Pro cornerback Alterraun Verner is no big deal on the surface, but on a deeper level it’s not a good thing, given Verner’s learning curve.
Lovie Smith’s defense was foreign to Verner when he was signed as a big-money free agent in March. (more…)
Lovie Smith’s handpicked nose tackle, Clinton McDonald, has a shiny new Super Bowl ring, but the time isn’t right to share the “bling of the ring” with his teammates, McDonald said after practice today.
No, that won’t be good motivation yet. (more…)
It was another day of training camp for your favorite team, and Joe’s got all the sights and sounds of practice. (more…)

Recently, the Bucs let go of defensive back D.J. Moore who seemed perfect for the new defense under Lovie Smith because he played for Lovie in Chicago. Alas, he was waved goodbye to hours before training camp.
So it seemed there was some clarity in the secondary for the Bucs. Apparently not. Per Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, the Bucs are bringing back a familiar face: Anthony Gaitor. (more…)
Joe knows true Bucs fans, and NFL fans in general, monitor NFL Network daily, and not just to gawk at Molly Qerim’s overall goodness and/or Amber Theoharis’ legs. Any time there is football talk it is a good thing.
Sunday, Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp hosted live coverage of Bucs training camp on NFL Network. There (as well as on Saturday when Sapp regaled a handful of Tampa Bay pen and mic club members) he talked about how he thought the Bucs safeties would blow up in Lovie Smith’s defense. (more…)
There’s a reason Buccaneers have been getting super close to fans attending training camp. There was about 20 inches of shade on the practice fields of One Buc Palace yesterday, and defensive players managed to find it. (more…)
The explosion off the Tampa Bay defensive line from new nose tackle Clinton McDonald was evident to those watching practice yesterday, the first of the season in pads.
McDonald, however, is a quiet guy off the field, very reserved around media but an open book and intensely driven with teammates. (more…)
A major change this season has players more awake and ready for practice, says Doug Martin. (more…)
The Bucs and left guard Carl Nicks parting ways Friday shocked few Bucs fans. And it shouldn’t have.
Nicks had played sparingly in the last two seasons, his only years with the Bucs, and rather than wearing a helmet, Nicks often was seen wearing a floppy hat watching OTAs and minicamp from the sidelines this spring.
The same folks who were surprised Nicks couldn’t make a go of it are the same people who are surprised it gets hot in Florida in July. (more…)
But those baseball bats are a memory of the Carl Nicks that Bucs fans saw little of after he signed a massive free agent contract in 2012. (more…)
