High Flying Josh McCown

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Undaunted by the millions Connor Barth lost last year because he got hurt playing in a charity basketball game, new Bucs starting quarterback Josh McCown put on a basketball uniform recently to join Anquan Boldin and other NFL players in a hoops game for the Pahokee, FL, community.

NFL Fan Pass produced a highlight reel, and McCown is the featured baller. (more…)

Mocking Derek Carr And The Bucs

Is Derek Carr a reach for the Bucs?

Is Derek Carr a reach for the Bucs?

Joe is convinced the Bucs will draft a quarterback next month in the NFL Draft. Whether it is Johnny Football in the first round, Derek Carr in the second around, Jimmy Garoppolo in the third round or Aaron Murray in the fourth round, Joe isn’t sure. Only time will tell.

Joe is willing to wager (but not much) that the Bucs will have a new quarterback come early May. (more…)

Tired of all the mock drafts? Joe is. This site monitors the mockers and grades them for accuracy. In short, Bucky Brooks should never be allowed to do a mock draft again since he is working for NFL.com. [The Huddle Report]

This is a unique request. [CraigsList]

NFL Network: Bucs Primed For Round 1 QB

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

lovie and lichtSmokescreen or the pulse from a true insider?

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, who as a league employee has a pipeline to everyone in the NFL, was talking tonight about how the Bucs are thoroughly primed to draft a quarterback in the first round of next month’s draft. (more…)

Looking For Road Graders

Might the Bucs trade back and nab Notre Dame G Zack Martin?

Might the Bucs trade back and nab Notre Dame G Zack Martin?

Joe has typed several times over the past few weeks that he’s not all that enamored with the offensive line of the Bucs. Anthony Collins is a nice pickup and is a fine pass blocker, but Collins has never started eight games in a season much less 16. That is a red flag to Joe. (more…)

Mocking Gabe Jackson At No. 38

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Gabe JacksonJoe realizes there are plenty of BSPN faithful among us, people who believe that if a BSPN mouthpiece says something, well, it’s as if Moses is talking at Mt. Sinai. It reminds Joe of those old EF Hutton TV commercials of his youth.

So in the spirit of the BSPNites, Joe will reveal the latest from helmet hair draft guru Mel Kiper, who behind a BSPN pay wall revealed his latest two round mock draft this afternoon. (more…)

Not Good Odds

How Jeff Tedford develops the offense will determine if the Bucs continue a nasty trend for teams that spend a lot in free agency.

How Jeff Tedford develops the offense will determine if the Bucs continue a nasty trend for teams that spend a lot in free agency.

Yes, the Bucs made a major splash last month when the team broke out the Team Glazer checkbook and ran out of ink, they were cutting so many checks. No team has overhauled its roster more with new signings and waving goodbye to old starters. (more…)

“Incredibly Difficult”

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Greg Cosell of NFL Films weighs in on evaluating Johnny Football and finding a QB fit in the draft

The Buccaneers’ quest for a franchise quarterback (yes, Mike Glennon Mob, the team still yearns for one) is a puzzling effort for a few reasons:

First, offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford’s offense is a complete mystery. So the type of QB the Bucs covet is unknown. Second, Lovie Smith guaranteeing 34-year-old journeyman Josh McCown $5 million after cutting him a few years ago adds to the confusion. And third, it’s unknown what kind of commitment Lovie Smith is willing to make to the position.   (more…)

More Quarterback Freefall Nonsense

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

WR Odell Beckham at No. 7? Really?

In this Season of Smoke, aka the 10 weeks leading up the NFL Draft, it amazes Joe how expert analysts who quickly will tell you the NFL is a passing league all about quarterback play now somehow believe a long list of QB-needy teams will pass on a quarterback in the first round.

Joe puts no credence in this popular nonsense. Forget about the Bucs for a minute, Joe will be stunned if the Jaguars pass on a first-round QB with the No. 3 overall pick. (more…)

Josh Freeman’s Last Stand

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
atomic bomb

Joe expects an ugly ending in some way between clock-challenged Josh Freeman and Giants drill sergeant coach Tom Coughlin.

When Joe learned yesterday that former Bucs outcast quarterback, leaky, sleepy Rip Van Freeman, was signed by the Giants, Joe laughed for about five minutes. To Joe, this transaction is either a desperate attempt to revive a freefalling NFL career or a sinister power move by a suit with the Giants. (more…)

Doug Williams No. 5

No. 5 Bucs player of all time?

A fun countdown that Pat Yasinskas has on ESPN.com is the “top five” Bucs of all-time. Not that long ago, one would have been hard-pressed to come up with five off the top of one’s head.

Now, one has to think long and hard who would be in the top five of all-time Bucs. To start the fun, Yasinskas has former quarterback Doug Williams as No. 5. (more…)

Report: Freeman To Sign With Giants

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

josh freeman 0403

Future Hall of Fame coach Tom Coughlin appears to be ready to place his trust in former Bucs franchise quarterback, sleepy, leaky Josh Freeman.

BSPN is reporting Freeman, 26, is about to sign a contract with the Giants following his workout yesterday in New Jersey. The reason Joe references Coughlin’s “trust,” is because Eli Manning’s health is a bit of a question mark. Freeman is not just training camp meat in this situation. (more…)
