Mike Glennon’s Brother Ranks The QBs

Johnny Football impresses Glennon

Sean Glennon, Mike Glennon’s brother, was cut by the Vikings in 2009 after a solid quarterback career at Virginia Tech, where he was once the MVP of the ACC Championship game. 

Nowadays, Glennon, 28, checks in as a football analyst on Delaware sports radio, 1290 AM. And it’s no surprise that he watches plenty of film and likes to break down quarterbacks. [read more]

Quick Turnaround?

Is GM Jason Licht molding the Bucs after the Cardinals?

Is GM Jason Licht molding the Bucs after the Cardinals?

Lovie Smith and Jason Licht have stated publicly that Bucs fans don’t deserve another rebuilding stage. Given the fact the Bucs haven’t won a playoff game in 12 years, not since Chucky hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy aloft in victory, that’s a damned long time. [read more]

Only One Speed For Joe Cullen

April 15th, 2014

Joe recommends the latest “Meet The Coaches” feature on Buccaneers.com. Scott Smith goes deep with new defensive line coach Joe Cullen, Gerald McCoy’s sixth defensive line coach in five years.

Cullen, whose voice could land him in Mafia films, hits on a lot of topics in the roughly six-minute video, which prompted Joe to dive into further research. [read more]

Going After A Defensive Linemen?

Joe expects DL Will Gholston to play a key role this fall.

Joe expects DL Will Gholston to play a key role this fall.

Joe wonders how many Bucs fans were thrown out of bars across the Tampa Bay area when they hurled beer at TVs after watching opposing quarterbacks have so much time in the pocket to throw. These QBs could have clipped their toenails and not been sacked.

Poor Gerald McCoy. He may be the best defensive tackle in the game and he got absolutely scant help trying to breathe on a quarterback. So when Bucs coach Lovie Smith took over, he wasted scant minutes (seconds?) in beefing up the defensive line. As a result, Joe thinks the defensive line is just fine. [read more]

Mike Glennon’s Future

A pair of BSPN types believe Bucs backup QB Mike Glennon is trade bait.

A pair of BSPN types believe Bucs backup QB Mike Glennon is trade bait.

The Mike Glennon Mob has come to grips with the fact their hero, barring injury to Josh McCown or the Bucs not drafting a quarterback next month (something Joe will lay cash that the Bucs indeed will do) will not start for at least two years.

That doesn’t mean the MGM has given up hopes that Glennon will someday rescue the Bucs from their postseason winless purgatory. [read more]

Spence’s Legal Woes Will Linger Into Summer

Akeem Spence

Bucs defensive tackle Akeem Spence did not commit the allegedly brutally heinous acts of having a mattress on his front lawn, a stripper pole in his living room, a sibling’s knife in his thigh, or hosting a loud house party. But Spence was pinched by Alabama police in January for allegedly barreling down the highway at 100+ miles per hour with a chunk of weed.

Today, Spence was scheduled for a “bench trial” in rural Alabama. [read more]

Options at Wide Receiver

Josh Norris of Rotoworld.com believes Vincent Jackson needs help from a drafted wide receiver

Yes, the Bucs loaded up on defensive players in free agency. The Bucs went from an OK defense to maybe a top-tier defense with Lovie Smith taking over the reigns.

If anyone can build a strong defense, it is Lovie. So Joe believes the defense will be just fine. It is the offense that needs talented bodies. [read more]

First-Round QB Less Risky Than DE

April 14th, 2014

Even with all the media coverage of the NFL, there still exists a secretive blossoming underworld inside many franchises. It’s a world where spreadsheets and hard drives and stats geeks try to craft an edge with information. 

The Bucs hired their own master of numbers this year, Tyler Oberly. So Joe finds it interesting that Mr. Oberly shared an analysis earlier this month from his old website, TheSidelineView.com. [read more]

Another national insider claims Lovie is lovestruck

The smoke continues to seep out of One Buc Palace, and the odor reveals the Bucs are hunting for a quarterback in next month’s draft. And some paid to read the smoke are convinced the target of the hunt is none other than Johnny Football. [read more]

“With The 69th Pick In The NFL Draft …”

April 14th, 2014

CyrilRichardsonReinforcements have to be coming to bolster the Bucs’ offensive line. It has to happen.

The O-line, right now, is far too thin. Here’s the breakdown, in case you forgot.

Thankfully the Bucs have time, and one full-time draft analyst believes Tampa Bay is likely seeking a gigantic target in the third round. [read more]

Forget The Past

Forget 2013, Lovie says.

Just thinking of last season, Joe’s stomach turns a little and generates acid reflux. Or maybe that was the Crown and Coke Zero Joe was drinking last night?

The 2013 season for the Bucs was enough to turn anyone’s stomach. Losing the first eight games, watching leaky, sleepy Rip Van Freeman go mental and try to tear apart the locker room, the MRSA, the list goes on. It was so bad it shouldn’t be forgotten. [read more]

QB “Strategy” Or QB Freefall?

April 14th, 2014

Could it be that every single quarterback in the draft will be on the board when it comes time for the Bucs to pick at No. 7 overall?
