Offense! Offense! Offense!

May 10th, 2014

bucs cheerleader 1117If you’re just waking up from an all-night, Friday-night bender, the Bucs’ 2014 NFL Draft is over.

They snatched six offensive players and not one defensive player.

Guys on the Bucs’ defensive bubble are breathing a whole lot easier today, guys like cornerbacks Leonard Johnson and Rashaan Melvin, as well as every Bucs defensive end not named Michael Johnson, given Lovie Smith’s history.

All these rookies will head to Tampa for rookie minicamp in less than a week. Joe will be there, of course, and stick with Joe through the rest of today for much more on the draft.

    Weapons! Weapons! Weapons!

    Sorry had to post that here too after seeing your title Joe. Can’t wait to see what this offense looks like in the regular season.

    Now about that O-Line…

  2. RastaMon Says:

    Lovie learned alot…stewing on the sidelines…under Tony’s 3 and out offense…..

  3. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I figured Clayborn was safe.

  4. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    If he learned a lot…why does he seem to be recreating the Bears offense that sucked?

    Don’t get me wrong, I like the picks, although the tackle is so-so. But there are a lot of similarities between several of these picks and several of his Bears players.

  9. Gusjackson Says:

    First time in franchise history

  10. bgoldoc Says:

    Actually Joe, it was 6 offensive players. No defensive player. Anxious to see what this offense will look like. Would also like more O lineman in second phase of free agency. Still worried about the guard position.

  11. Gusjackson Says:

    Buccaneers bonzai unless you have a time machine you can’t judge this draft, THE DAY OF THE DRAFT. Give it time damn

  12. MadMax Says:

    And this for ALL of the Glennon haters…..O line was purged, and we revived the Receiving core….so obviousy the big boys who really knew what to do were taking care of business at the helm! And Glennon is still here!!!!!

  13. Bucky1 Says:

    @ JOE May I respectively ask, where is the new drafted quarterback? I sincerely hope the Tampa bay bullies (I’m sorry, I should have said, the mike and pen club) will lay off and respect our players on the roster and give Lovey a chance to show us what he can put on the field.

  14. Couch Fan Says:

    Will be fun to hear Joe and his little buddy try to tear this draft apart for the lack of a new QB. LOL

  15. Blastoise Says:

    Next year will be QB and defense.

  16. lurker Says:

    glennon sucks, open ur eyes.

    Remember MG* plus VJAX -Doug Martin-mike Williams-Mike James+Tim Wright etc. scored 19.5 points per game (254 pts in 13 games), against the 2nd hardest schedule in the league.

    If the addition of ME + ASJ + CS+ revamped line adds only THREE measly points a game, the new Bucs offense would rank 19th, a tiny bit behind the Panthers.

    If the addition of those same players adds SEVEN points a game, the new Bucs offense would rank in the top ten in the league.

    What a great draft. Kudos aplenty for L & L.

    Even if you are not a charter member of the MGM like me, then you honestly believe that Josh McCown is better than MG8. This should make you feel even better.

  19. tonybucsfan Says:

    Hard to fathom that an offense that ranked 32nd in passing and 22nd in rushing needed a significant upgrade..

  20. lurker Says:

    our biggest disadvantage was, and still is, qb.

  21. MadMax Says:

    Ya, I overlooked Timmy, VJax and Dougy….but man what an additional bulk of talent added to those 3.

  22. PhantomVash808 Says:

    Fire the Cannons! Fire the Cannons!! Fire the Cannons!!!

  23. unbelievable Says:

    So far the only pick I’m not totally on board with was Charles Sims, not cuz I don’t like the player, I think he is a great talent and has a bright future.

    But, we could have used that pick on a more premier guard or other position of need, and still found a running back with great hands and speed in later rounds. Hell, I think Storm Johnson went in the 7th and that kid is a beast and a playmaker.

    And yet he’s still here. Heh heh.

  25. Bucky1 Says:

    @ Lurker I guess, reading all your posts we can safely say, you either are or want to be, the president of the Mike Gleenon Hate Club (although there is another who proudly proclaims his leadership).

    And so is Luke Stocker, what’s your point?

  27. tickrdr Says:

    Look at the evolution of the Offensive Depth Chart
    Start 2013>>>>>>>>>End of 2013>>>>>>>Start of 2014

    QB: Freeman/G >>>>>>>> Glennon/O >>>>>>>?McCown/Glennon
    WR: VJax>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VJAX
    WR: Williams >>>>>>>>> Underwood >>>>>>>>> Mike Evans
    WR3: ?????? >>>>>>>>> Owusu/Dawson?>>>>>> ?Tim Wright/Sims/?
    TE: Crabtree/Byham>>>>>>Tim Wright>>>>>>>>ASJ/Wright/Meyers
    RB: Martin>>>>>>>>>>James/Rainey>>>>>>>>Martin/Sims/James/Rainey
    OL: Released or traded 3 of 5 starters>>>>>>Dotson, Meredith, 3 FA’s, two picks, plus future FA signings, ?Nicks
    HC and OC: you get the picture.

    How can we not be better. LOTS better.
    Last two points:
    1) our overall schedule should be easier than last,
    2) of those 51 QBs drafted in the first round over the last twenty years, nearly three out of four IMPROVED their career QB rating compared with their rookie rating. MG8 should improve too with more coaching and experience.

    Can you say Mike Glennon Tampa Bay? Love how this pi$$es the MG haters off. But always remember as a hater it is better to be pi$$ed off, than pi$$ed on.

  29. biff barker Says:

    Since it took months for the Freepologists to stop whining, I would think that since many were charter Glennon detractors, you can expect about the same.

    He’s a better QB than the haters think and not as good as the mobsters think.

  30. Dougy balls Says:

    Fire the cannons !!!!

  31. lurker Says:

    “He’s a better QB than the haters think and not as good as the mobsters think.”

    this is accurate. we need improved qb play. mccown/glennon does not get that done. lovlic can’t fix the team in one season.

  32. lurker Says:

    also, bucs just signed qb brett smith qb wyoming as an udf.

  33. $acbuc$ Says:

    We need R.Melvin. We have to have two 6’2 cb on our squad to contest K.B. Kelvin Ben.

    Joe did you see how drafting giant made our NFC south rivals go all DB& Safety on us. lol
