Tampa Bay Browns

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

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…)

“You ain’t no Derek Carr, buddy.”

The man some Bucs fans are missing these days, left tackle Donald Penn, weighed in with a take on leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman and Mike Glennon recently.

Big Game Coming For Mike Evans?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Yes, Joe was as surprised to read the following as you might be.

The Browns have the best pickoff artist in the NFL. Tashaun Gipson and his five picks lead the NFL. He has eight picks in his last 10 games and three in his past two games.

In other words, the guy is on fire. So it would help Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon to stay away from this guy. (more…)

Glennon Burying Nose In Brees Clues

"Details, my son, details."

“Details, my son, details.”

The quarterback of the future has a little something going this week that he relishes.

You see, Mike Glennon studies loads of film and that work is a extra special when it’s a team like the Browns. But why? (more…)

Break Out The Two-Minute Offense

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

The Bucs coaching staff, in particular the offense and, of course, Lovie Smith, always talks about starting fast on offense.

But the only fast thing about the offense is how quickly it gets off the field after yet another three-and-out series in the early minutes of games.

In the second half, especially in crunch time, the offense appears to have life. (more…)

THE OPTIMIST: Finished Product Is Coming

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

In these unsettled times of devastating Bucs losses, constant change and growing pains, Joe thought it would be wise to bring back THE OPTIMIST.

THE OPTIMIST is Nick Houllis, a Bucs fan and an accomplished writer whose steadfast allegiance to the Buccaneers goes back to the 1970s. Houllis is the founder, creator and guru of BucStop.com, a place Joe goes to get lost in time via Houllis’ stunning video collection.

THE OPTIMIST will shine that positive light in your eyes. Some will love it. Some won’t. … Of course, THE OPTIMIST’s opinions are his alone and are not influenced by Joe. (more…)

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Much like the Vikings’ Everson Griffen, the Browns have their own dangerous, late-blooming pass rusher, former Super Bowl hero Paul Kruger.

Dunkaneers Dead?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Bucs WR Mike Evans seemed to imply the "Dunkaneers" offense left with former offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford.

Mike Evans seemed to imply the “Dunkaneers” offense left with former offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford.

Remember how we heard all about the “Dunkaneers?” You know, the new brand of offensive football with the Jeff Tedford-led Bucs offense?

You remember, don’t you? Where quarterback Josh McCown heaves the ball deep and lets the taller than tall Tampa Bay receivers (Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins) just go up and get it; sky over cornerbacks for those long passes? (more…)

Free Agent Repercussions

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

When Team Glazer hired Lovie Smith in January, ending a months-long courtship, one concession Lovie must have had from Team Glazer was an allowance and freedom to spend big time on free agents.

While we are not quite at the halfway point of the 2014 season — the Cleveland game this Sunday will be game No. 8 — thus far the Bucs’ new free agents haven’t exactly been lottery winners. Let’s take a quick look: (more…)
