“I Just Started Running”

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

TCWilliamsMikeThe Bucs missed Mike Williams in 2013. Somewhat surprisingly, he tried to — and was allowed to — play through a difficult hamstring injury and was lost completely for half the season on injured reserve.

Many fans were down on No. 19 after his 2011 campaign (Joe was never in that camp.), but Williams bounced back in 2012, scored a big contract and proved to be a massive loss for the Bucs’ historically anemic offense this year. (more…)

Unacceptable Confusion

Monday, December 30th, 2013

Cerebral former Bucs TE Dave Moore weighs in on the Bucs’ preparation

Joe blasted the Bucs defense for not showing up yesterday. There was no resistance. Drew Brees, through three quarters, was 22-for-28 for 376 yards and four touchdowns. Brees is great at home, but not that great.

The Bucs’ allegedly good defense was invisible, giving up the booty to the tune of 35 points in those three quarters, and it was all on the defense. The Bucs offense was at least moving the ball and eating up clock during those first 45 minutes. (more…)

“Outplayed And Outcoached”

Monday, December 30th, 2013

Below is full audio of Greg Schiano on the Buccaneers Radio Network after today’s clobbering at the hands of the Saints.

Schiano says the Bucs were “outplayed and outcoached” and “sometimes in life you hit a bad patch.” Schiano also talks about the Leonard Leap and the seemingly wacky call of a fake field goal on a fourth down deep in Saints territory to close the first half.

First-Down Ugliness Is Killing Bucs

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

Brian Billick talks about the Bucs’ formula and why it’s not working

Bucs fans remember the old Tony Dungy offensive formula to win football games in Tampa. It wasn’t always pretty.

Former Super Bowl winning head coach Brian Billick knows all about it. He used the same philosophy. But Billick doesn’t think it suits the current Bucs under Greg Schiano.

Billick will call the Bucs-Saints game Sunday, and he called the Bucs-Rams game last weekend for FOX, so that means he’s been studying all things Bucs meeting with players and coaches. (more…)

Shaun King Challenges Bucs Fans

King demands higher standards

What would the Christmas season be without hearing from former Bucs quarterback Shaun King?

King, one of three quarterbacks to lead the Bucs to the NFC title game, offered many passionate takes this morning, including a call for fans to wake up and start being pessimistic. (more…)

“A Wretched Offense For The Bucs”

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Tampa Bay Times Bucs beat writer Rick Stroud is appalled by the Bucs offense.

“There’s no other way around it, whether you’re playing with a rookie or not, this has been a wretched offense for the Bucs,” Stroud says in the WDAE-AM 620 audio below. And Stroud also exclaims what appears to be disbelief that the Bucs had 10 drives Sunday for 11 total yards.

Joe knows someone’s head will roll for the NFL’s worst offense. That’s a given. Joe’s just not sure how many heads that will be.

Kaepernick Unplugged

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

The face of the San Francisco 49ers, quarterback Colin Kaepernick, talked to Tampa Bay media yesterday via a conference call. Joe is curious to hear reader feedback. It seems Kaepernick has taken on the personality of his head coach.

Joe Talks Niners, Coaching, Turnovers & More

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Joe ventured to the Hard Rock today this evening to talk all things Bucs with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620. Joe dove deep into the Niners game, the state of the Bucs’ offense, Greg Schiano’s future and more. Enjoy.

Execution & O-Line Play Is the Difference

Monday, December 9th, 2013

So how are the Bucs winning four of five games after an 0-8 start?

The answer isn’t rocket science, explained former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht on WDAE-AM 620 this morning. (more…)

Chucky’s Loss Was Revis’ Gain

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Bucs fans remember that Brett Favre was oh so close to wearing pewter and red for the 2008 season. Team Glazer, per numerous reports, was ready to take on Favre’s $12 million salary, but a last second change of heart by the Packers got Favre shipped to the Jets.

Ironically, it seems that trade had a huge impact on Darrelle Revis, the Bucs’ $1-million-per-game cornerback. (more…)

Joe Talks Draft, Pass Rush, Sullivan & More

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

Schiano Grilled And Drilled

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Greg Schiano went toe-to-toe on live radio. Everything from Josh Freeman to habitual failures were on the table.

Wow! Greg Schiano jumped into an old school radio grilling by Steve Duemig this evening on WDAE-AM 620. It was a powerful landmark interview that Joe will dissect later tonight and tomorrow.

Kudos to the head coach for fielding questions from his most vocal critic. Enjoy the entire audio below. The intensity and tension was flowing. The heat was on. It closed with Schiano saying the following:

“I know the tone of our interview today. There’s a lot of questions. I love the passion that you have. You’re the senior statesman of the Tampa sports world, and I appreciate your opinion. And I hope, you know, in this instance that we can turn it around and that you’ll say, ‘You know what, you were right Schiano.’ That’s what I’m looking forward to.”

“Well you better hurry up,” Duemig said laughing, followed by the two exchanging friendly-competitor farewells. It’s a must-listen.

“You Have To Look In The Mirror”

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

The leader of the New Schiano Order sat down with the Buccaneers Radio Network after today’s clubbing in Carolina to talk briefly.

Greg Schiano seems flummoxed by why the Bucs were bad on third down. “You have to look in the mirror as a Bucs team and say, ‘Why couldn’t we perform better than 1-for-10?’ Whether it’s the plays we have, or the plays we called, or the players not executing, I think there’s enough blame to go around.” …The full WDAE-AM 620 audio is below.
