Packers At Bucs, Open Thread

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

So here we are, the Sunday before Christmas and it’s a Packers convention at the Den of Depression —  Green Bay South.

Hey, what do you expect? The Bucs haven’t given fans any reason to come to games this year and Packers fans are escaping the long and brutal winter of Wisconsin.

Bang it here for your thoughts during the game, no matter how many picks Aaron Rodgers may throw, no matter how many sacks Da’Quan Bowers may have.

As always, Joe encourages you to e-mail URLs of illegal video streams of the game among yourselves, but posting said illegal links here can and will get your run.

Go Bucs!

History Suggests Big Day For V-Jax

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

?????????

The only thing right about the offense of the Bucs is the wide receivers. Mike Evans very well may be rookie of the year and Vincent Jackson is quietly having a Pro Bowl-like season.

The outlook today appears grim with hotshot Hollywood starlet-shagging Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers coming off a bad game. Rodgers is lethal after bad game, not that he has had many of them. (more…)

Time For Michael Johnson To Appear

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

Joe gets the sense, though nothing has been confirmed, that Anthony Collins will never start at left tackle again for the Bucs. He may never play another snap.

Last week, Collins was, in NHL terms, a healthy scratch. He was benched for awful play, replaced by right tackle Demar Dotson. Collins seemed shocked. (more…)

Pass Protection Tips Served

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

TrayOne of many offensive struggles plaguing the Bucs is pass protection from running backs.

They’re just not very good. It’s made Joe appreciate veterans like Brian Leonard, D.J. Ware, Cadillac Williams and Earnest Graham in the backfield in recent years. (more…)

Bucs LT Demar Dotson discusses his move to left tackle in great detail.

Demar Dotson discusses his move to left tackle in great detail

Last week, after the loss to the Stinking Panthers, Bucs left tackle Demar Dotson told reporters he was flipped from his normal right tackle position on orders from “upstairs.”

To Joe, upstairs is a loaded word in NFL jargon. (more…)

Packers Are Far From Perfect

Jameis Watch: Michael Vick–Approved

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

jameis 1119Crab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, national champion James 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…)

Scouting Randall Cobb

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

A possible Bucs target?

Not everyone knows about the Packers’ other stud receiver, Randall Cobb, who should be a handful for the Bucs on Sunday.

The 24-year-old speedster has 76 catches for 1,076 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’ll be a free agent in a matter of weeks and reports out of Green Bay say contract talks have stalled.

Can Bucs Snap Rushing Drought?

Saturday, December 20th, 2014
When Doug Martin slashed through the Raiders defense in 2012, it marked the last time the team had consecutive 150-yard rushing days.

When Doug Martin slashed through the Raiders defense in 2012, it marked the last time the team had consecutive 150-yard rushing days.

At least in the past three seasons, no matter how deep the stable of Bucs running backs is, no matter who has been coach or offensive coordinator, the rushing game has revolved around one man.

That man’s name is Doug Martin. (more…)

Per the Vancouver Sun, former Bucs OC Jeff Tedford said he’s been “good to go for a couple of months.”

So former Bucs offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford, before the NFL season is over, before Christmas 2014, already has a new job. As many know, he is now the head coach of the BC Lions of the CFL.

Tedford suffered a heart issue in preseason and he was all but AWOL ever since. (more…)
