Joe just shakes his head about the Bucs’ defensive. Poor Gerald McCoy. The dude gets no help from his teammates. If the Bucs had any kind of pressure from the edge, imagine how fearsome GMC would actually be.
Bucs coach Lovie Smith is nearly as nauseous as Joe is about the lack of an edge rush. Lovie believes if he can’t get pressure on the quarterback, then the defense will never live up to its hype.
Want to know why the NFL Network’s Mike Mayock is the best in the business at breaking down the draft? Here, courtesy of Joe’s good friends at WDAE-AM 620, is the audio of Mayock’s end-of-combine press conference.
The guy is an absolute machine. For a full 18-minutes Mayock fields questions about players better than Joe polishes off colds beers on a Friday night. It is impressive.
When Joe wrote this morning he would try to overwhelm you, here is another example. Joe got a chance to talk to “The Professor,” John Clayton of ESPN, this morning at the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Clayton doesn’t buy that having the No. 4 quarterback in a four-team division means the Buccaneers can’t be successful. (more…)
Joe’s not f’ing around at the combine. Joe landed one of the biggest of big NFL media insider fish right away this morning when ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, just as he was about to go on set to air a report or some such thing, gave Joe a few minutes of his time to talk Bucs.
One nugget “Mort” dropped on Joe is that Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon has some other NFL owners with their briefs in a bunch. (more…)
It was time again to sit down for an hour this evening with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620.
Joe talked a bunch about Mike Glennon, Greg Schiano and the Browns, trading up in the NFL Draft, and more.
In a rare moment with the Tampa Bay pen and mic club, Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazer discussed the hiring process of new Bucs general manager Jason Licht.
Among the nuggets Glazer offered were how the process of hiring Licht took place, how many candidates Team Glazer interviewed and how new Bucs coach Lovie Smith was involved in the process. (more…)
The tone of a man’s quotes aren’t always clear in print. Stuff can get fuzzy in the translation from voice to type sometimes.
Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times joined WDAE-AM 620 this morning to detail his recent chat with Darrelle Revis and where Revis’ heart and mind was when he criticized the New Schiano Order. (Full audio below)
When Joe sits down to talk all things Bucs with Tampa Bay sports radio icon Steve Duemig every Wednesday on WDAE-AM 620, you just never know where the conversation will go. It’s kind of like Joe’s writing on these pages — predictably unpredictable. You can listen to yesterday’s entire audio below.
Lovie Smith landing as the 10th head coach in Bucs history wasn’t too much about Xs and Os, says Bucs icon and 2014 Hall of Fame finalist Derrick Brooks.
Team Glazer could not longer tolerate the New Schiano Order. (more…)
Adrian Clayborn and Da’Quan Bowers should be talking big with their play and not their Twitter accounts, so says former Bucs guard Ian Beckles.
The popular WDAE-AM 620 radio host wagged a finger of shame at Clayborn and Bowers for their jabs at the New Schiano Order following its demise. Joe already brought you Bowers’ plea for good coaching, but Clayborn also yearned publicly for personal change. (more…)
Gabe Gabriel was a football operations staffer and scout with the Chicago Bears when new Bucs coach Lovie Smith ran the team. He offered insight this morning on the “Ron and Ian Show,” heard on WDAE-AM 620, as to what made Lovie click in Chicago and what his weakness were.
Gabriel also explained what the hiring of Lovie before a general manager may mean for the power structure at One Buc Palace. (more…)
What impact will the Lovie Smith regime have on the young defensive talents on the Buccaneers?
That’s unknown. But former Bucs quarterback Shaun King believes it will be remarkable because Raheem Morris and Greg Schiano were not ready for their head coaching jobs. Lovie will deliver a stunning change, King says. (more…)
