The Bucs had five sacks in the first half against Pittsburgh. Awesome!

The Bucs have five sacks throughout the 13 other halves of football they’ve played. Ugly! (more…)

Joe’s asking for your help

Perhaps trying to spare Bucs fans a Halloween weekend horror in Cleveland, officials at the FOX affiliate in the Fort Myers-Naples TV market will not air the Bucs-Browns game Sunday.

Despite legions of Tampa Bay faithful in their audience — the northern edge of their signal is just south of Sarasota — they have opted to show the Cardinals-Cowboys game instead.

What a travesty this is for Bucs fans in the area, and Joe is asking for your help. (more…)

Jameis Watch: Bucs Scouting Boss In Louisville

Friday, October 31st, 2014


Crab-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.

Perhaps that’s why the Bucs sent their top-dog talent evaluator to Louisville for last night’s big Seminoles-Cardinals clash. (more…)

Home Dominance For Brian Hoyer

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Johnny Manziel, Brian HoyerThere’s a big reason Browns fans aren’t screaming their lungs out for Johnny Football to replace Brian Hoyer at starting quarterback.

Hoyer has been dominant through four Cleveland home games. (more…)

Defense Gradually Improving

Friday, October 31st, 2014
Lavonte David and the Bucs defense had a good outing last week. However, several Bucs say there is a long road to travel still to become a good defense.

Lavonte David and the Bucs defense had a good outing Sunday. However, several Bucs say there is a long road to travel to become a good defense.

Yes, Joe thought it was a kick in the nuts the way Tampa Bay lost to the Vikings. A rookie quarterback drives his team down the field for a game-tying field goal to get into overtime, where the Bucs coughed up the ball, and the game.

A decent defense does not let a rookie quarterback do such a thing. Still, holding an opponent to a mere 13 points in regulation more often than not will win you a game. (more…)

Bucs Will Chill In Cleveland

Friday, October 31st, 2014

The mythical home-field, hot-weather, Tampa advantage doesn’t help the Buccaneers, so Joe’s not going to be one bit pessimistic about Sunday’s weather forecast in Cleveland. (more…)

Mike Glennon Is Getting Shell Shocked

Friday, October 31st, 2014

When Joe was a kid, before he knew what a two-hole was or even how to hold a football properly, Joe learned something about football from his old man that was as true then as it is in 2014. “It’s hard for a quarterback to throw the ball when he’s on his arse.”

There have been strange calls from former Bucs who make a living in the TV industry, those who have called for Tampa Bay starting quarterback Mike Glennon, the Bucs’ quarterback of the future, to be benched for turnover machine Josh McCown. (more…)

This is like 40 years old, but a Playboy interview with Joe Namath is unlike any NFL athlete interview you will read today. Namath talks about craps games with the mob, bookies, his war with Pete Rozelle, blondes, Johnny Walker Red, Bear Bryant, how he almost left football to play baseball for the Cardinals, and a Pennsylvania boy playing college football in the Jim Crow south.

Jameis Watch: Open Thread

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Joe’s scrapping the traditional “Jameis Watch” in favor of an open thread to chat all things Winston and NFL Draft during tonight’s Florida State at Louisville game.

Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. from Cardinal Stadium. BSPN has the broadcast.

Bang it here tonight with all your thoughts on crab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, national champion Winston, the pride of FSU and a likely Tampa Bay prize in the post-McCown era. (Tomorrow, the Jameis Watch continues when another former Buccaneer weighs in.)

Tampa Bay Browns

In recent years, the model franchise for ineptitude has been the Cleveland Browns. A woebegone franchise with a rich history, the Browns have gone through coaches and general managers like Joe goes through 12-packs of Bud Light.

With new coaches and staffs, one thing (until this season) remains constant in northeast Ohio: losing. (more…)
