What’s The Sales Pitch?

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

JohnsonJust like the Bucs are in no position to get rid of productive players, Tampa Bay also shouldn’t waste another nickel — or valuable developmental snaps — on proven unproductive football players.

This is why Joe can’t grasp why the Bucs would keep defensive end Michael Johnson. (more…)

The cutting season has begun. Just yesterday, several name potential free agents were tossed aside by teams whittling payrolls in order to keep star players.

Move On From Suh

Pass.

Pass.

Joe isn’t sure if some folks are just mentally trained to follow football focused solely on fantasy football, or if they recognize a name and immediately think the player is a must-get because, ‘Hey, I recognize the name.’ (more…)

Chopping Block

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

The free agency dinner bell rings March 10. Just around the corner. Hope you grab your popcorn.

Of course, it isn’t just free agents that will find new homes around that time. Involuntarily, so will a lot of overpriced veterans, as clubs slash cash to either get under the salary cap, or free up funds for a spending spree. (more…)

With the free agency dinner bell ringing in 13 short days, allow Joe to remind Bucs fans of that famous Lovie Smith quote from January 2014:

“Just as a general rule, you know there’s a reason why there is a salary cap.  And we want to use all of our resources to get as many good football players in here. It’s kind of as simple as that. We want to be right up; we don’t want to have a lot of money in reserves. No one does. I mean you want to use money to get as many good football players. And it takes money to get good football players in here. So that’s our approach.” (more…)

Will Bucs DC Leslie Frazier be smiling with an upgraded secondary this fall?

Lost in the talk of the Bucs finally getting their franchise quarterback is that there are other areas on the team that need help, too. This may come as a surprise for a team that was 2-14. (more…)

Former standout University of Colorado quarterback Joel Klatt, who also played professional baseball, is one of the more unsung analysts around. Joe’s definitely a fan of his work on FOX Sports 1.

The free agency dinner bell rings in 14 short days

Early last preseason, Lovie Smith and Jason Licht advised Bucs fans to stop panicking about poor offensive line play.

The rest is history. The Bucs’ leaders, one could say, panicked themselves a few weeks later and made a deal with the devil. (more…)
