Joe knows he’s going to get slapped around for this, but what the hell. Here goes:
The Bucs defense played solid ball Sunday. Yes, the Vikings’ final, tying drive in the fourth quarter was a kick in the nuts. Still, Joe was impressed with what the defense did as a whole. [read more]
Pre-loss film of Minnesota revealed clear opportunity for the Bucs offense against the Vikings. And the Bucs attacked the Vikings’ weaknesses but failed miserably.
Xs and Os guru Dave Moore, the former Bucs and Bills tight end, dove into the failures in detail. [read more]
And that brings Joe to the man who now seems to be the coveted quarterback prize as the Bucs try to build a Super Bowl contender. [read more]
Tomorrow, Joe will compare results here to the same poll a few weeks ago
The Bucs are so miserable on their offensive line right now that an immobile quarterback like Mike Glennon is the not wise choice at QB, says one prominent former Buccaneer. [read more]
Settle in at 5 p.m. today for the fiery “JoeBucsFan Hour” with Joe and the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620.
Grab a cold one (not while driving) and enjoy the fun.
Joe guesses he might be one of these guys who likes to slash his wrists. Why else would he watch a replay of that abomination of a football game between the Vikings and Bucs again?
But there Joe was, like a moth to a porch light, watching the replay on NFL Network. [read more]
Yes, the Bucs cut Mike Kafka yesterday and sliced Eric Page from their practice squad. Is the Page move an indicator of Tampa Bay’s new faith in returner Trindon Holliday, who was not special in his Bucs debut Sunday? [read more]
The way the Bucs have been playing, maybe as awful as Joe can remember, Joe has been having flashbacks to the notorious Sabby the Goat, the former Bucs safety who made Mark Barron look like Ronnie Lott.
If there was a bad angle to take, Sabby knew it. If there was a way to make a bad tackle attempt, Sabby knew it. If there was a way to make a penalty, Sabby knew it. Often, all in one play. [read more]
So who was that guy not named “Johnson” getting pressure off the right edge Sunday?
It was not overlooked by coaches that little known defensive end Jacqueis Smith had a significant impact. [read more]
Sunday was painful. Joe honestly cannot remember at any time he went to an NFL game and wished he wasn’t there. Except last year when Joe got roped by friends to go to a Jags-Lambs game. Sober no less! Joe even had to drive.
One point in the first half Sunday was like watching a couple of old ladies hitting themselves with handbags in an argument over stitching or some such thing. [read more]
Yes, the rumors were out there; teams have contacted the Bucs to see if wide receiver Vincent Jackson is available. There are also reports running back Doug Martin might be trade bait, which makes Joe laugh out loud.
Just what general manager is going to pick up Martin’s contract when the same GM could sign a guy off the street for considerably less cash and get the same production. Joe would be shocked if Martin got traded. [read more]
Bucs news forthcoming.
This FSU running back Karlos Williams sure seems like a swell fellow. [BSPN]
Marshawn Lynch is a douche. [TMZ]
Bears GM calls out bratty Jay Cutler. [NFL]
Lamarr Houston is a clown. [BSPN Chicago]
Avoiding what might have been never-before-seen outrage from Joe, Lovie Smith told media today that changing starting quarterbacks on Sunday is not in his plans. [read more]
Joe would hope the good folks at One Buc Palace would, through seven games, have an idea who is dog meat and who is prime rib. The eye in the sky doesn’t lie.
Since the Bucs are fighting for the top pick in the draft, and the team seems to get worse by the week (holding the Vikings to 13 points in regulation is nice, but this is the Vikings). Joe would hope the Bucs have determined by now who can play and who can’t; who they can develop and who they can’t. [read more]
