QB Insanity Is Spreading FastMarch 5th, 2014
Why is Joe feeling like he’s in the minority when it comes to the Bucs’ quarterback situation?
Is it so hard to see that the Bucs are one of only two teams in the 16-team NFC that have a massive question mark at the most important position on the field?
Jiminy Christmas! The Mike Glennon Mob is going national.
Bucky Brooks, a former NFL player who now serves as part of the NFL Network’s draft guru team that includes Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah, is out with his latest mock draft and reasons (somehow) that the Bucs will pass on Teddy Bridgewater with the No. 7 overall pick.
Here’s Brooks’ order:
1) Jadeveon Clowney (Texans)
2) Jake Matthews (Rams)
3) Johnny Football (Jaguars)
4) Sammy Watkins (Browns)
5) Greg Robinson (Raiders)
6) Taylor Lewan (Falcons)
7) Anthony Barr (Bucs)
8) Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings)
This is almost as wacky as Shaun King’s take yesterday that claimed Johnny Football is a poor fit for the Bucs and they likely would pass on him at No. 7. King believes Bridgewater will be the No. 1 overall pick and the only QB taken in the top 7.
Joe can’t be more clear. The Bucs would be nuts not to draft Bridgewater in this scenario. Nuts.
Team Glazer is always reported to be involved in monumental Buccaneers player decisions, at least through the past five years. Joe strongly advises Team Glazer to get a handle on the possibility that Bridgewater and/or Johnny Football could be sitting there for the taking at No. 7. Schedule a staff meeting now. Bang on a table. Make sure Lovie Smith and Jason Licht have their quarterback priorities in order.
