Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier lauded MLB Mason Foster’s play Sunday

Joe knows there are two distinguishing characteristics of Bucs fans:

1) They love players with names they recognize, no matter how little gas is in the tank, no matter how horrible they may be, no matter how ill-fit they may be on the Bucs. It they know the name, he must be good. (more…)

Lambs backup QB Shaun Hill was, as Charles Barkley would say, "turrible" in the Lambs season opening loss to the Vikings.

Lambs backup QB Shaun Hill was, as Charles Barkley would say, “turrible,” in the Lambs’ season opening loss to the Vikings.

Just like last week, the Bucs will face a backup quarterback Sunday when the St. Louis Lambs blow into town.

Last week, as we all remember, the Bucs couldn’t take advantage of facing the dangerous Derek Anderson who outplayed Bucs quarterback Josh McCown.

With the Lambs, their quarterback situation is a complete and total mess. (more…)

Stop Clobbering The Offensive Line

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

McCownfumbleLast year, the Panthers held opponents to 16 or fewer points in 10 – Ten! – of their 16 regular season games. They had a smothering run defense and the led the NFL in sacks. What exactly was expected from the Bucs’ offensive line Sunday?

The reality is they weren’t that bad. (more…)

After injuring his ankle last week, it is unknown whether stud Lambs DE Chris Long will play against the Bucs.

After injuring his ankle last week, it is unknown whether stud Lambs DE Chris Long will play against the Bucs.

When the Lambs come to town Sunday, they will involuntarily give the Bucs a break. Too bad Tampa Bay got the same break last week and blew the chance.

For the second week in a row, a Bucs opponent will be without its starting quarterback. (more…)

The loss of Michael Bennett got a new twist today

The loss of Michael Bennett got a new twist today

Letting beastly young defensive end Michael Bennett walk away to Seattle after a nine-sack season in 2012, a season in which Bennett also was dominant against the run, is one of the more puzzling moves/non-moves in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history.

And this morning, former Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik made it sound like that critical call wasn’t his decision. (more…)

When fan favorite tight end Luke Stocker arrived to training camp, many Bucs fans were counting the days before he was released. Stocker was loathed by Bucs fans not so much for the fact he was always hurt, but he had the misfortune of being drafted by former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik.

And, as is well known from these irrational folks, if Dominik drafted you, then you were a bum. (more…)

Bucs DT Akeem Spence explained, from a defensive lineman’s perspective, the Bucs may be catching the Stinking Panthers at the right time.

Just like it is a new look for the Bucs offensive line, so too will it be a new look for the Stinking Panthers offensive line. The biggest difference will be the void of Jordan Gross, the stud left tackle who retired.

To fill that void, the Stinking Panthers moved over starting right tackle Byron Bell. Nate Chandler, a converted defensive lineman, is penciled in to start at right tackle Sunday. (more…)
