As he promised weeks ago on “10 Sports Extra” with Joe’s friend Chris Fischer, stud Bucs outside linebacker Lavonte David arrived in Phoenix, site of Super Bowl XLIX, to roam through radio row yesterday and go through the car wash.

David had made it clear he wanted to start marketing himself to stop these galling snubs from Pro Bowl honors and All-Pro teams. (more…)

Did Darrelle Revis Backstab The Bucs?

Thursday, January 29th, 2015
Numbers show the Bucs may not miss Darrelle Revis.

Darrelle Revis’ handlers blew up two trade deals the Bucs had on the table, claims CBS Sports.

Fascinating what can happen when solid writers have a week to sit down and probe NFL contacts, coaches and executives to dig up a juicy story. And heavy-metal-headbanging Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports did just that.

La Canfora pieced together a story on just how All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, shoved out the back door by the Bucs last offseason, turned up on Bill Belicheat’s front door. (more…)

jake plummer

Of all the people Joe never imagined running into at the Super Bowl media center in downtown Phoenix was none other than former Bucs (?) quarterback Jake “The Snake” Plummer.

Folks may remember how Plummer, then with the Broncos, led Denver to the 2006 AFC title game, where they were blitzed by Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers, arguably Big Ben’s best game as an NFL quarterback. (more…)

Jameis Watch: The Godfather Stands Firm

jameis 1103“Crab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, former national champion Jameis 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…)

Dan Quinn Talks To Joe

Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, believed to be the new Dixie Chicks coach, is mobbed by reporters yesterday at Super Bowl media day.

Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, believed to be the new Dixie Chicks coach, is mobbed by reporters yesterday at Super Bowl media day.

In some ways, interviewing a subject is like a boxing match. No, there are no punches thrown (usually), but a subject often tries to rope-a-dope and dodge questions with empty or evasive answers.

The reporter tries to work the subject into a corner to deliver a question the subject cannot dodge.

That was the case yesterday when Joe interviewed soon-to-be Dixie Chicks coach Dan Quinn. (more…)

A national NFL analyst revisits his breakdown of Bucs first round pick Mike Evans prior to the 2014 draft.

Joe has been fortunate to talk annually to scouts and NFL types about the draft. One doesn’t need such access to understand how the draft is such an inexact science.

Even a drunk in a bar can tell if a general manager bats .500 in the draft; folks in Canton are polishing a bust for the man. (more…)

Former Bucs DE Michael Bennett — who the Bucs let go for no good reason — answers questions at Super Bowl Media Day Tuesday.

Of all the former Buccaneers — and players with Bucs connections — in Sunday’s Super Bowl, Joe wanted most to talk to former Bucs defensive end Michael Bennett.

Now starring for the Seahawks, Bennett, who the Bucs let walk away for no good reason, is now playing in his second Super Bowl in as many years.

Reminding Bucs fans of this all-time colossal personnel error is enough to make Bucs fans so mental, they want to go outside and start throwing rocks at cars. (more…)

The NBC Sunday Night Football analyst will, of course, be part of the Peacock Network’s hosting of pregame and postgame talent Sunday. And Harrison loves to talk defense, including safety play. (more…)

The Blind Can See Bucs Need A QB

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015
The quarterback play by the Bucs was so awful, not even Bucs QB Josh McCown could watch.

Bucs quarterback play was so awful, not even Josh McCown could watch.

The poor Bucs fans who threw out hundreds (thousands?) of dollars this year to watch dreck perceived to be an NFL team are appalled at what became of their Bucs. Joe can totally understand.

Hell, Joe was watching Bucs games for fun and work, and even they were painful. The play of turnover-prone Josh McCown was so awful, Bucs fans wanted to rinse their eyes out with battery acid. (more…)
