Josh Freeman = Jeff Driskel?September 21st, 2013
Bucs fans always used to moan that the Bucs never got any attention from national media types. Well, the past couple of weeks, Joe can never remember the Bucs getting so many words typed and spoken from scribes based out of New York, Bristol, Conn., and other points beyond Florida since the team played in the Super Bowl.
And little of the content has been good.
This is what happens when you choke away a pair of wins — one of which came in sheer stupid fashion in the media capital of the world.
How bad has the deluge been? It’s even coming from non-NFL circles.
As Joe is wont to do on football Saturdays, he lounges in his leather couch and soaks up as much college football as a human is allowed. Despite today’s slate of games being dreadful and unappealing, Joe still got up and watched the college football pregame shows.
Joe just happened upon FOX College Saturday hosted by leggy Erin Andrews. The panel discussed the wretched woes of the Florida Gators offense and quarterback Jeff Driskel’s struggles inside the red zone when Andrews invoked the Bucs.
“It’s like watching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their defense is just balling. I feel sorry for these guys because the offense is not helping them out at all,” Andrews said.
Andrews then made a face as if she was about to toss her breakfast across the table.
Now Joe isn’t going to go so far as to compare Bucs franchise quarterback Josh Freeman to Driskel, who looks completely inept at times.
To Driskel’s credit, while he may struggle mightily, he’s getting the job done off the field with his cheerleader girlfriend.
