Yes, the Tampa Bay offense averages a little more than four points in the first halves of games. It’s reprehensible.
Joe might recommend a witch doctor or a team of strippers massaging players in the pregame locker room. But de facto offensive coordinator, Marcus Arroyo, wants answers. (more…)
It’s the popular “JoeBucsFan Hour,” your favorite hour of intense Bucs talk. Joe joins the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig, at 5 p.m. Listen live at 620wdae.com.
A thing that irks Joe is that the Bucs are led by someone and built by the same fellow who is believed to be a defensive wizard. The man’s name is Lovie Smith.
Make no mistake: Lovie oversees all football transactions. A player is not signed; a player is not traded for without Lovie’s stamp of approval. (more…)
In his postgame eulogy Sunday, Bucs coach Lovie Smith dropped a line that implied the Bucs simply don’t have the horses to do battle with the big boys of the NFL. That’s not a far-fetched notion, the way the Bucs have been alley-beaten.
When Bucs stud defensive tackle held court after the game, he said the Crows attacked him like they didn’t give a damn about any other player on the Bucs defensive line. (more…)
How does that happen, and why does it continue through an entire first half? (more…)
Joe will give Raheem Morris credit. The man was unafraid of change.
Heck, in his first season, Raheem fired his offensive coordinator in August and changed his offense. Three months later, he fired his defensive coordinator and radically changed the Bucs defense. (more…)
Many Bucs fans were irrational the way they attacked the offensive line. Joe thought it was lazy to lay all the blame for Doug Martin being a shell of his former self on the O-line. (more…)
No, the Bucs offense didn’t remind anyone of the “Greatest Show on Turf” during the seal-clubbing by the Crows Sunday.
Frankly, even if it did, it wouldn’t have mattered anyway, the way the Bucs pass defense treated Crows wide receivers as if they had the shingles. (more…)

Bucs fans will want to listen to this audio of Joe interviewing Bucs defensive tackle Akeem Spence in the Tampa Bay locker room after the game yesterday. You can just feel the frustration oozing out of him.
Spence, in a very candid interview — which Joe greatly appreciates — explained how the Bucs were not prepared for Crows quarterback Joe Flacco’s three-step drop, that the defensive line was helpless as a result, and that the Bucs actually know Lovie Smith’s precious defense. (more…)
Despite all the Bucs’ question marks, the No. 1 question surrounding the team — and one that will drive the team’s future — is at quarterback. (more…)
Joe has a range of emotions about the Bucs after their second seal-clubbing in a month yesterday, this time at the hands of the Baltimore Crows. It was one of the more pitiful beatdowns Joe has ever seen.
Not one emotion spinning in Joe’s head is positive. The Bucs are in a complete and total collapse, whether it be coaching or player evaluation. (more…)
