Dane Fletcher Talks Starting, Talib

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014


New Bucs LB Dane Fletcher

Back at the NFL Owners meetings, Lovie Smith said he primarily signs free agents who can be starting players, in part, because that’s what good free agents want to know when they are being recruited. These guys want playing time.

Lovie sees newcomer and former Patriots LB Dane Fletcher as one of those guys. (more…)

No Pressure On Louis Murphy

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Louis Murphy suddenly could be the Bucs’ No. 2 WR and is living his childhood dream.

When the pride of Lakewood High School, wide receiver Louis Murphy, was signed by the Bucs during free agency, it seemed like a smart move. Bring in a seasoned veteran who was still young who had starting experience. Great addition of depth.

Then came the trade of No. 2 wide receiver mattress-in-the-front-yard, stripper-pole-in-the-living-room (allegedly), blade-in-the-thigh wide receiver Mike Williams to Buffalo. (more…)

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

alterraun verner 0318New Bucs Pro Bowl, big-money cornerback Alterraun Verner spent his first four seasons in Tennessee, and Joe, like many Bucs fans, doesn’t watch much Titans football.

So yesterday Joe set out to ask new Bucs wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins (a three-year teammate of Verner) just what Verner is like to play with. The “S” word came out, as it usually does when you talk to those familiar with Verner. (more…)

Plenty Of Time To Adapt

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

lavonte david 1201Lavonte David, the stud Bucs outside linebacker, is a laid back dude off the field. He’s the kind of a guy who goes with the flow. So now that he’s experiencing a coaching change for the first time in his NFL career, David is far from freaking out about the changes at One Buc Palace. (more…)

Loaf Grades Arriving This Morning

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

NNew Bucs cornerback D.J. Moore played for years in Chicago under Lovie Smith. So before yesterday’s inaugural practice under the new Bucs regime at One Buc Palace, Moore was one of the few Buccaneers who really knew what to expect.

He also knew what was coming after practice. (more…)

Tim Wright Expecting Bigger, Better Results

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
This just in: Tim Wright finished 12th in receiving yards for tight ends in 2013, most for any rookie.

This just in: Tim Wright finished 12th in receiving yards for tight ends in 2013, most for any rookie.

Just about as long as Joe has had this corner of the Interwebs up and running, Bucs fans have been absolutely obsessed with the tight end position. Joe is confident many Bucs fans would rather have a decent tight end than a decent quarterback.

Joe is constantly peppered with questions on Twitter about who the Bucs will draft/sign to upgrade the tight end spot. The sad thing of it is, these same fans don’t want to hear the truth: that the team currently has a budding star tight end already on the roster. (more…)

Joe’s Last Word For Some Mobile-Only Readers Of

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

joe_mug_shotDear readers,

Joe is aware that a small percentage of mobile-only readers of experience redirects at times when viewing via their smartphones.

It’s a problem that Joe is working on, and it’s also a problem that has been an issue for several major websites, the NBC family of sites, among others. Thankfully, Joe has such a gigantic readership (730,000 visits last month alone) so he gets what feels like lots of complaints. However, those complaints are not something Joe will address any longer. Responding to them specifically wastes Joe’s time — time that is much better spent on covering all things Bucs.

Again, Joe is working on the issue with his technical gurus and has been for many weeks. Also, Joe has plans in the works for mobile readers that could lessen the impact of this issue and, for some, remove the issue altogether.

Regardless, Joe hears the pain that some of you are having. Sorry. Life is very smooth for most readers, and great for all off the smartphone.

Please trust that Joe is doing his best for all readers.

From here forward, every time the issue is brought up to Joe via Twitter or in the comments section, Joe will respond by sending a link to this post.

Go Bucs!
