Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

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…)

Will Vikes Fix Bucs’ Pass Rush?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Bucs DT Akeem Spence talks Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater and rushing the quarterback.

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…)

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

“Gerald McCoy Is Not An All-Pro”

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Joe likes how real Gerald McCoy is. Ask him an honest question and you get an honest answer. Joe really appreciates candor.

So Joe was more than impressed yesterday when GMC, speaking before a large gaggle of the local pen and mic club, stated flat out he is unworthy of postseason honors he has received in the past. (more…)

Crows Only Worried About GMC

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

GMC explained he was a marked man Sunday.

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…)

Akeem Spence explains the Meltdown on Dale Mabry Highway yesterday in great detail.

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…)

Anthony Becht Questions Playcalling

Monday, October 13th, 2014

GlennonsackJoe never understands why some fans claim former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht, now an analyst on the Buccaneers Radio Network and, is too pro-Bucs and won’t criticize the team.

Those bitter fans just aren’t paying attention. (more…)

Danny Lansanah Not A Lucky Man

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Bucs OLB Danny Lansanah dives over the goal line with his pick-six last week in New Orleans.

Bucs OLB Danny Lansanah dives over the goal line with his pick-six last week in New Orleans, his second in three games.

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.

Lansanah’s play has been so good, he has replaced Casillas as a starter. (more…)
