“It’s Like It Went From Pluto To Mars”

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Ronde Barber already has written children’s books, and Joe can’t wait until Barber gets around to penning a look at the four Tampa Bay head coaches he served under.

That’s going to be chock full of gems. (more…)

Lavonte David No. 7

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Joe knows it really irritates many Bucs fans that stud linebacker Lavonte David got snubbed for the Pro Bowl last year. Joe doesn’t give a damn about the Pro Bowl at all, but still, it was an embarrassing omission.

It was such a slap in the face, it seems as if national NFL types have sort of used David’s slight as a crusade to not let this happen again. (more…)

From LSU To Stopping Gerald McCoy

Carolina has bigger guard issues than the Bucs

Many Bucs fans struck themselves with hammers the moment running back Charles Sims was drafted in the third round back in May. These fans wondered how the Bucs could do such thing when they had pressing needs at guard and a strong stable of running backs.

The Panthers, however, went guard in the third round and snagged LSU beast Trai Turner and dropped him into their starting lineup. (more…)

The Bucs' Super Bowl champion weighs in

The Bucs’ Super Bowl champ weighs in

New Bucs nose tackle Clinton McDonald, the man with the Barry White pipes and a shiny new Super Bowl ring, doesn’t like to compare anything about his time with the champion Seahawks and his new team.

He doesn’t like to go there. But Joe got McDonald to dip his toe into those waters in the happy postgame locker room in Buffalo. (more…)

Target: Cam Newton

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
If the Bucs had a pass rush, they could persuade Stinking Panthers QB Cam Newton from doing his Superman schtick.

If the Bucs had a pass rush, then they could persuade Stinking Panthers QB Cam Newton from doing his Superman schtick.

Only a few days ago the Bucs learned the projected starting opposing quarterbacks to start the 2014 season were less than 100 percent. First, Sam Bradford is out for the season, again, with a blown knee. Then there was Cam Newton.

The franchise quarterback of the Stinking Panthers suffered a hairline fracture of a rib. This is one of the most painful injuries a guy can have and, for a quarterback, it’s even worse. Every time he throws, unless Newton is shot up, he will know it. (more…)

Gerald McCoy Welcomes A Threesome

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

gerald mccoy 1207Film don’t lie. Go back and watch film of Carolina-Tampa Bay games last year and you’ll see Gerald McCoy getting triple-teamed — when he’s not getting double-teamed.

Joe asked McCoy about whether he expects the same treatment on Sunday, and McCoy had a lot to say. (more…)

Josh “Deep Ball” McCown

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

That’s right. Your Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave journeyman Josh McCown the fattest contract he’s ever seen to rifle balls downfield and go toe-to-toe with Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton.

Well, that might be a stretch, but a stat pumped out this week BSPN seems to back up the premise. (more…)

Cheap Shot At ASJ

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

One of the many impressive new Buccaneers is rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Yes, Joe is impressed with he can do on a football field, but more so, Joe is overly impressed by ASJ the person.

Joe will never forget when after a practice in training camp, Joe remarked that ASJ sure seemed like he had a good practice, ASJ looked Joe straight in the eye as if Joe spit on him and said, bluntly, “I didn’t come here just to be good.” (more…)

The actual starting right guard likely knows his status, but he will live incognito, if you will. (more…)

Lovie Sets All-Pro Standard For Mason Foster

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Joe realizes many Bucs fans hear the name Luke Kuechly and bang their head against the nearest wall because in 2011 the Bucs drafted Mark Barron but could have had Kuechly, who landed in the middle of Carolina’s dominant defense.

The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year is everything he was hyped up to be. (more…)
