Jeff Tedford = Artist

Friday, July 25th, 2014

The Bucs’ GM explains

Of course nobody knows what the Jeff Tedford Buccaneers offense will look like. The man is an artist. Artists know no bounds. They’re not locked in a traditional box. Their creativity results in free expression that will tantalize, surprise and bewilder.

Joe sort of learned all this from Bucs general manager Jason Licht. (more…)

Worst 20 Bucs Of Past 10 Years: The Aftermath

Friday, July 25th, 2014

No, leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman wasn’t worthy of the dubious list.

Yes, the recent “The Countdown: Worst 20 Buccaneers Of The Past 10 Years” was very popular.

But in some circles, it angered Tampa Bay fans.

It wasn’t like Bucs fans did not enjoy guessing who would land on the dubious list. They were mad because [insert a player's name] was not included, or at the top of the list, even. So Joe decided to explain why those whose absence irked many readers did not make the list. (more…)

Austin Seferian-Jenkins Ready To Roll

Friday, July 25th, 2014
Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins declared himself fully recovered from offseason surgery.

Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins declared himself fully recovered from offseason surgery.

For the most part, even to the Tampa Bay pen and mic club, rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a mystery. Not only was he recovering from foot surgery to stabilize a fracture during Bucs spring practices, ASJ rarely attended.

University of Washington is on a quarter system and the school’s schedule was a conflict. Per NFL rules, rookies whose college hours conflict with OTAs or minicamps cannot participate.

Joe knows Bucs general manager Jason Licht liked his tight ends prior to the draft (in particular, Tim Wright) but ASJ had really wowed both Bucs coach Lovie Smith and Licht big time while they studied pre-draft film. (more…)

Dream About To Happen For Mike Evans

Bucs WR Mike Evans chose an interesting workout partner this summer to prep for training camp.

Bucs WR Mike Evans chose an interesting workout partner this summer to prep for training camp.

The man Bucs general manager Jason Licht tabbed “Godzilla” is ready to rock and roll across NFL fields as his namesake did Tokyo. Bucs wide receiver and seventh-overall draft pick Mike Evans is ready.

The first round draft pick held court, briefly, with the Tampa Bay pen and mic club as he arrived at One Buc Palace for his first NFL training camp. Evans noted a few things that opened Joe’s eyes. (more…)

Morning Cup Of Joe From

Friday, July 25th, 2014

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

Bucs news forthcoming.

Joe realizes cops have rotten jobs and they have to deal with all types of parasites, but this is out of hand. [TheBigLead]

It’s time people begin taking matters into their own hands. If your friend/relative is stupid enough to have a wedding in the football season, then they should not expect you to attend. This practice of weddings during football season is not only rude, but crass (no, bye weeks don’t count). [Eleven Warriors]

So let Joe get this straight: To try to dodge a traffic ticket, you call 911 and report you are about to get gunned down in an attempted murder? Creative, yes, but really ignorant. [Brevard Times]

The winning streak is so Rays. [RaysIndex]

Jason Licht Channels Joe Namath

Thursday, July 24th, 2014


Right now for Bucs fans, thinking of the offensive line is enough to induce chugging bottles of Mylanta. It makes Joe thirsty, too, but not for a chalky indigestion elixir.

The Bucs, as of 6 p.m. last night, fully expected hobbled guard Carl Nicks to show up today. He didn’t; he has an excused absence to tend to a family issue. Nicks, as we all know by now, has a bum foot, specifically a bum toe, and has played sparingly since coming to the Bucs in 2012. (more…)

Bucs coach Lovie Smith explained how he turned negatives into positives this spring.

Lovie Smith explained how he turned negatives into positives this spring

Players not able to participate in practices, OTAs or minicamp? Fans just go absolutely bananas. “Cut him! He can’t hack it!” the fans scream.

Of course, Bucs coach Lovie Smith would want players to participate in all workouts and. Rather than dwelling on the negative if guys are sidelined, Lovie believes he can turn a negative into a positive, so he said this afternoon while addressing the local pen and mic club at One Buc Palace.

Three Named In No. 3 Receiver Competition

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

chris owusu 070Tampa Bay has a pile of receivers on the training camp roster, 13 to be exact, make that 14 if you count the man who could be the best receiver on the roster.

But general manager Jason Licht only served up three names when asked a question about the competition for the No. 3 receiver position. (more…)

Nicks Is A No-Show For Training Camp

This surely comes as a surprise. (more…)

The Long Walk To Start Camp

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

It was right about dawn and Joe wasn’t sure if Gerald McCoy had just gotten out of bed or was being gangsta when he showed up at One Buc Palace in a stylish red robe. Somewhere, Joe Namath was jealous.

Bucs players made the long, tortured walk from their cars and white team-sponsored passenger vans to One Buc Palace, knowing what the end of the walk means. (more…)

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

The dubious countdown is over. And the winner/loser was known for playing very, very scared.

Final judgment day is here.


Carl Nicks And The Bucs

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Bucs GM Jason Licht spoke about the status of G Carl Nicks yesterday.

Yes, the subject of the week is Carl Nicks and that ugly toe of his. This even seemed to surpass the fact the Bucs were reporting for training camp.

Yesterday, after his town hall meeting hosted by Joe’s good friend, “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig, heard live on WDAE-AM 620 and held before a studio audience at Clear Channel Tampa headquarters, Licht spoke to reporters about Nicks’ status. (more…)
