Former Bucs guard Ian Beckles talks about Richie Incognito coming to Tampa Bay today

“It’s Not Just Guards”

Monday, August 25th, 2014

A prominent former Buccaneer weighs in

Joe felt bad for Tampa Bay fans watching the opening minutes of the Bucs-Bills game Saturday. The offensive line was bad, Jacksonville bad, Sean Mahan and Keydrick Vincent bad. Perched in the Buffalo press box, Joe swore he could hear the screams of agony.

Thankfully, it got better in the first half. But how much better? (more…)

Stinking Panthers QB Cam Newton is not healthy.

In 13 days, the Bucs will host the Stinking Panthers at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway to kick off the 2014 season. Since Lovie Smith was hired in January, he has been talking about, emphasizing, demanding, pleading, praying, willing that the Bucs get more pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

If Lovie needs more incentive for his defensive front seven to hit and punish QB to start the season, it is here. (more…)

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Joe caught up to the newest Buccaneer in Buffalo

Last week’s phone call came to new Bucs guard Rishaw Johnson while he was in his car en route to work at Chiefs headquarters. “You’ve been traded to Tampa Bay.”

Bucs OC Jeff Tedford talks more about his offense.

There was always a perplexing nag in the back of Joe’s mind with all the jumping up and down at One Buc Palace about running an up-tempo offense, excitement as if Joe coerced Rachel Watson to join him on a private sunset cruise in the Gulf of Mexico. Was this mysterious Jeff Tedford offense going to be revolutionary?

Apologies, but Joe never asked. But Ronde Barber did. (more…)

Stop With Glennon-To-Rams Nonsense!

Monday, August 25th, 2014
Barring an absolutely unreasonable offer, Bucs QB Mike Glennon's is not playing for the Rams.

Barring an absolutely unreasonable offer, Bucs QB Mike Glennon is not on the trading block.

Joe just couldn’t believe it. Yesterday, it didn’t take but 10 seconds for it to happen. The instant the news came across Twitter that Sam Bradford’s days in St. Louis have essential ended, as the Rams quarterback suffered another season-ending knee-injury; Joe got a question about the Bucs trading the quarterback of the future and the quarterback of the past but not the quarterback of the present, Mike Glennon.

Joe’s head almost hit the keyboard.

(Bradford is due $16 million next season in the last year of his current contract with the Rams. The Walmart-heir-by-marriage who owns the Rams, Stan Kroenke, would have to be drowning in Budweiser to cough up that kind of cash on a guy whose career is shattered.) (more…)

Sunday, August 24th, 2014
