“Drink A Mountain Dew!”October 29th, 2012
Think the drug suspension of Aqib Talib and the likely looming four-gamer for Eric Wright doesn’t upset Bucs players? Former Bucs tight end and current network radio analyst Anthony Becht says it does.
In fact, Becht could barely contain his disgust on WDAE-AM 620 this morning.
Becht, who played for the Chiefs in 2011, said the thought of a guy popping a banned Adderrall makes him shake his head.
“You put that in your mouth you know there’s a huge consequence with that,” Becht said, referring to all players knowing the list of banned substances. ”Are you trying to stay up for a meeting? Drink a Mountain Dew or a cup of coffee. You might as well stick a needle in your butt and take steroids because you’re getting the same consequences.”
Becht went on to call out E. J. Biggers and Leonard Johnson to put the offenders where they belong. “Go win those jobs [Biggers and Johnson] … and maybe you keep them.”
Outside the emotion of it all, Becht said he believes Biggers and Johnson have flashed enough this season for fans to be hopeful they can be starters.
Joe appreciates Becht bringing his what-if-I-were-a-still-a-Buccaneer take to the suspension of Talib and, likely, Wright. It lets Joe know how pissed off many other Bucs must be.
After all, Greg Schiano repeatedly talks about how hard his “Buccaneer Men” work. And no hard-working man is pleased to have his teammate let him down intentionally.
