Joe disagrees with a former Buccaneer

Joe’s a big fan of former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht, who’s a busy man working for ESPN and the Buccaneers Radio Network, but Joe had to disagree with Becht this morning.

Speaking on WDAE-AM 620, Becht drew a line in the sand stating it’s outlandish to think Bucs coaches lost confidence Josh McCown yesterday. (more…)

Lambs Quarterback Doesn’t Matter

Lambs starter Shaun Hill was limited in practice today and Lambs coach Jeff Fisher declared him a gameday decision.

Lambs starter Shaun Hill was limited in practice today and Lambs coach Jeff Fisher declared him a gameday decision.

When preparing for the Lambs game Sunday, the Bucs know any of three quarterbacks could be playing.

As Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Twittered today, starter Shaun Hill, who inherited the job from injured Sam Bradford, was “limited” in practice today and Lambs coach Jeff Fisher declared Hill would be a gametime decision. (more…)

“He Is Definitely Missed”

QB coach Marcus Arroyo confessed today that the Bucs do miss Jeff Tedford (above) — contrary to previous claims by Lovie Smith and some players — as Tedford recovers from having heart stents implanted.

Ever since Bucs offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford took a medical leave of absence to have heart stents implanted, and subsequently has been slowly trying to get back in the swing of things at One Buc Palace, Bucs coach Lovie Smith and most players did their best to spin Tedford’s absence as no big deal.

Joe simply didn’t buy it then. And didn’t buy it Sunday when Doug Martin looked Joe straight in the face and forcefully said Tedord’s absence did not have an effect on the offense against Carolina. (more…)

Lay Off Mason Foster!

Bucs DC Leslie Frazier lauded MLB Mason Foster's play Sunday.

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 Quarterback Situation A Mess

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…)

Bucs May Catch A Few Breaks

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014
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…)

“There’s A Lot Of, You Know, People Involved In That”

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…)

Outcoached By Mike Shula?

Gerald McCoy weighs in on the defensive struggles

Gerald McCoy weighs in on the defensive struggles

Gerald McCoy had heavy praise for the blocking schemes and performance of the Carolina Panthers yesterday.

Jiminy Christmas! The more Joe listens to Buccaneers talking, the more Joe is believing the unthinkable, that Mike Shula outcoached Lovie Smith. (more…)

Reborn Luke Stocker

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

luke stocker

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…)

“It’s Going To Be Tough”

Thursday, September 4th, 2014
akeem spence 0827

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…)

Less Than 10 Sacks For Johnson = “Fail”

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

michael johnson 0805Former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht, a fixture on the Buccaneers Radio Network, has studied the Tampa Bay defense and believes it will be special, but he wants to see more of – and more from — Michael Johnson.

It seems everyone is waiting for the big-money free agent defensive end with just 3 1/2 sacks last season to show up. (more…)
