January 26th, 2015

jameis and jimboCrab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, former national champion Jameis Winston, the pride of Florida State University, continues to look like a much better quarterback prospect than Mike Glennon and Josh McCown.

It’s Joe’s daily nugget on the Jameis Watch, celebrating the best quarterback to wear No. 5 ever in the state of Florida. [read more]

The 12-Year Anniversary

January 26th, 2015

Bucs fans know greatness intimately. That’s one reason why so much of the fan base walks around ill.

Our beloved Buccaneers haven’t been good in a while, and it’s been 12 years since the team was great — 12 years ago today. [read more]

Ronde Barber Paints Rosy Picture

Bucs great Ronde Barber believes the near future is bright.

Bucs great Ronde Barber believes the near future is bright.

Joe admires former Bucs cornerback Ronde Barber. How could you not? The future (hopefully) Hall of Famer did everything the right way and, as a broadcaster, doesn’t often pull punches.

However, in a piece broadcast last night on Sunday Sports Extra with Barber talking to local raconteur Dan Lucas, Barber not only pulled punches, but seemed to wrap himself in a straight jacket when discussing the Bucs. [read more]

Overanalyzing

January 26th, 2015
Bucs fans are doing way too much reading between the lines to figure out the future.

Bucs fans are doing way too much reading between the lines to figure out the future.

Tampa Bay fans are eager for their team to rise from the ashes like a phoenix to burn the NFL next year.

Despite playing a lot of close games, the Bucs are a long, long, long way from being a good team. Way too many holes, including the most important, quarterback. [read more]

Spreadsheeters Not Fond Of David

Spreadsheeters were not overly impressed with Bucs OLB Lavonte David this season.

Spreadsheeters were not overly impressed with Bucs OLB Lavonte David in 2014.

Joe brought word last week that stud outside linebacker Lavonte David was trying to get both his name and likeness out there for deserved recognition.

In fact, David is going to the Valley of the Sun this week to press flesh with NFL movers and shakers, and likely take a trip through radio row, and the makeshift studios of the NFL Network, Fox Sports 1 and BSPN, as well. [read more]

The One That Got Away

January 26th, 2015
Seahawks DE Michael Bennett -- who the Bucs let walk away for no good reason -- ride's a cop's bike in glee after defeating the Packers in the NFC title game last week. Joe hopes to talk to him tomorrow.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett — who the Bucs let walk away for no good reason — ride’s a cop’s bike in glee after defeating the Packers in the NFC title game last week. Joe hopes to talk to him tomorrow.

As you are reading this here corner of the interwebs, Joe is en route to Tampa International Airport where he will board a plane for the Valley of the Sun and Phoenix, as Joe makes his annual trip to Super Bowl Media Day.

Joe will be in downtown Phoenix (no, the event will not be held at the birdcage the Cardinals call home in Glendale, due west of Phoenix) to catch all the hoopla, hysteria and, yes, hotties flaunting their wares at media day. [read more]

Controversy!

Somehow, Bucs TE Kellen Winslow got called for pass interference on this touchdown play, which cost the Bucs a playoff berth and changed NFL history.

The NFL loves controversy. And controversy equals drama, and the NFL loves, loves, loves drama.

Fans slam their fists on bars and claim they hate drama, but no, fans love drama. Nothing gets eyeballs to the NFL like drama.

The ball-fondling in New England? Perfect timing. Perfect! [read more]

2014 Draft Grade Redo

January 25th, 2015
Catching a football in his rookie year was more the exception rather than the norm for WR Robert Herron.

Catching a football in his rookie year was more the exception than the norm for WR Robert Herron.

Joe knows in the fast-food, drive-up, Twitter, instant-everything world we live in, fans cannot rest until they see a draft grade in the waning minutes of a team’s spring draft. Bucs fans are no different.

Joe always believes it is unfair to grade a draft until three years have passed. By that time, it is clear what a player is or can be. [read more]
