Yet on Sunday, Joe Flacco was throwing touchdowns with such ease and the Bucs defense was so pathetic, Joe couldn’t believe no fan threw a beer on the field in disgust, anger and protest. (more…)
Lovie Smith issued strong support for Mike Glennon today at One Buc Palace. (more…)
Yesterday at One Buc Palace, Joe asked McCown to comment on Glennon’s performance and share some of what he likes about the Bucs’ offense. (more…)
Bucs fullback Jorvorskie Lane has been popped by the NFL for violating its substance abuse policy and will have to watch Bucs games on TV like most fans, without pay, for his misdeeds, the Bucs announced today.
Lane’s suspension begins immediately and he will be eligible to return to the active roster Nov. 3, following the team’s game against the Browns. (more…)
Big-moneyed free agent Michael Johnson, the defensive and that was supposed to put the fear of God into opposing quarterbacks, has thus far been anything but fearful, unless you are Team Glazer cutting his checks.

Man, former Bucs guard Ian Beckles sure is rankled by the sight — and thought — of Gerald McCoy helping opponents up off the turf.
Win-now Buccaneers fans aren’t going to want to hear this. But it represents painful reality from arguably the most intelligent player on the Buccaneers’ roster. (more…)
Vincent Jackson is a strange mix. He’s a nice guy who does tons of laudable work for veterans and their families away from the football field, but rarely will he talk to reporters. He is sort of the George Hendrick of the Bucs. Good guy; no talk, though.

Thus far, Bucs right defensive end Michael Johnson has been a major swing-and-miss by head coach and overlord of football operations, Lovie Smith.
The very first guy the Bucs targeted in free agency, and reportedly dropped $24 million guaranteed in his lap, Johnson has largely completely invisible to date. (more…)
The Bucs have a questionable situation at offensive coordinator. Quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo, an NFL newcomer, has been filling in since late in the preseason.
Considering Lovie Smith often will say he’s always focused on improving the Buccaneers, Joe thought it was reasonable to ask the head coach if he’s starting the preparation process to potentially hire a new OC when this season ends. (more…)
