A bunch of important Tampa Bay sports types (not including Joe) had their annual gathering last week to apparently high five each other, dine well and pound scotch on the rocks, and give each other awards while dressed in fancy suits and sneakers.
This year, the “Sneaker Soiree,” as it’s known, also featured a roundtable chat with new Bucs general manager Jason Licht, plus Lightning head coach Jon Cooper and Rays skipper Joe Maddon. (more…)
Bucs defensive linemen weren’t allowed to touch — and certainly not hit — anyone during spring practices, but Bucs general manager Jason Licht didn’t hesitate to name the D-line as his standout bunch of the recently concluded OTA and minicamp sessions.
It’s the season of reading between the lines, so Joe finds this quite significant. (more…)
It’s Joe’s weekly chat with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620, about all the Bucs happenings of the day.
O’Dea was more elusive than Devin Hester. (more…)
Derrick Brooks’ induction into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor should have been enough to get you excited to attend Game 2 of the Buccaneers’ 2014 season. But now there’s a new incentive, a Brooks bobblehead doll for every fan in the house.
The man who led the Bucs to the NFC Championship game after the 1999 season, former Tampa Bay QB Shaun King, also spent a season alongside Josh McCown in Arizona.
McCown was “the guy” for the Cardinals back in 2004, and it didn’t go too well for him. (more…)
It’s Joe’s high-energy, weekly hour of all-things-Bucs talk with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620. Enjoy the audio below of Wednesday’s action. Joe’s gets after it again next Wednesday with Duemig, too.
So what do defensive coordinators facing the Bucs do when Jeff Tedford lines up two big, pass-catching tight ends, two dynamic gargantuan receivers, and Doug Martin and rookie Charles Sims in the backfield?
Now close your eyes and think about smooth-hands Sims breaking off in motion and lining up in the slot. (more…)
Here’s every last word from the media session today at One Buc Palace with Buccaneers starting quarterback Josh McCown. (more…)
Now Joe always hears about a rotation for defensive linemen and how it is important for the Bucs because the early weeks of the season are played under the brutal west-central Florida sun. Guys are just zapped from the heat.
But the term “rotation” is in the vernacular of Bucs general manager Jason Licht when referring to offensive tackles, as well. (more…)
Former Bucs quarterback Shaun King was a busy man this weekend. The NFL analyst for NBC Sports Network, which you enjoy weeknights with the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, the great Mike Florio, was at Radio City Music Hall.
As he returned to Tampa today, King, only one of three quarterbacks to lead the Bucs to an NFC Championship game, took some time to discuss football, including the Bucs, on Ron and Ian, heard locally on WDAE-AM 620. (more…)
Very interesting pre-draft nuggets in this WDAE-AM 620 interview of longtime NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.
The ESPN talking head broke the story of Josh Freeman being drug tested, and now “Mort” explains he’s learned that potential Bucs target Johnny Football has scored extremely high marks in extensive psychological testing that NFL teams rely on heavily. (more…)
But then what? Would Matthews, new left tackle Anthony Collins or Demar Dotson move inside to fill one of the Bucs’ apparent holes at guard? (more…)
