So doesn’t it make sense that the Vikings, a team with a good defense and a struggling offense, might try and see if the Bucs have figured out this quick-release riddle? (more…)
It’s like a hemorrhoid for Joe that flares up every fall and nothing doctors can do, short of carving the thing out, will subside the damned thing from September through December.
That NFL-hemorrhoid is the Bucs’ pass rush. As Joe wrote earlier, how many freaking draft picks, how many high-priced free agents have or will the Bucs have to go through before they find a guy to record double-digit sacks? (more…)
During a week when Lovie Smith is preaching a “mentality” change, quite a picture was painted yesterday of the defensive hunger the Bucs should have.
Former Tampa Bay starting linebacker Ryan Nece, a rookie on the legendary Super Bowl team, explained what a guy like Teddy Bridgewater coming to Tampa used to mean. (more…)
It’s almost that time of the week again, when Joe joins the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig, of WDAE-AM 620.
The spirited and popular “JoeBucsFan Hour” resumes at 5 p.m. Listen live online at 620wdae.com.
Joe likes how real Gerald McCoy is. Ask him an honest question and you get an honest answer. Joe really appreciates candor.

How does that happen, and why does it continue through an entire first half? (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…)
Those bitter fans just aren’t paying attention. (more…)
The failing Tampa Bay running game was one of the topics Pro Bowl left guard Logan Mankins addressed on Friday with the Tampa Bay pen and mic club. (more…)
One of the few Bucs bright spots is the play of outside linebacker Danny Lansanah. The former reserve got a chance to play for injured starter Jonathan Casillas against Atlanta and had a pick-six.
Most Bucs fans didn’t see that because it came in the fourth quarter of one of the worst debacles in franchise history. By that time, Bucs fans had shut the game off and already were drinking heavily.
