“And That’s The Thing; He’s Not Afraid”

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Rookie running back Ronald Jones under the watchful eye of RB coach Tim Spencer

Dirk Koetter is a tough guy. No question about it.

But while he is one of the most fearless coaches in the NFL (hey, if you start Doug Martin like Koetter did in 2017, then you’re one fearless SOB), there is an element of football where Koetter will take no chances. (more…)

Raw Emotions, Disappointments, Deep Questions & More; It’s Your JoeBoltsFan Podcast With Tom Lang

Friday, May 25th, 2018

And the season, she is over. Oh what could have been, right?

That’s the hard part about the way it ended. If our Bolts aired it out – like Game 7 – and came up short, that’s one thing. But looking back on the whole of the Eastern Conference Finals, can you really say the Lightning left it all out on the ice? A frustrating edition of the JoeBoltsFan Podcast, talking the sins of Games 1 & 2, getting by with just enough, and do coach and/or captain need a second look? Bolts fans, we stick together, but let’s keep it real too.

Many thousands have enjoyed the JoeBoltsFan podcast with Tom Lang, lifelong Lightning fan, Clearwater native and popular personality at ESPN Tallahassee. And this is the second-to-last episode of the 2017-2018 season.

Bucs fans know Lang from The ScuttleBucs podcast, but do not fear, Lang knows his beloved Bolts inside and out.

There is a sect of Bucs fans that for reasons not entirely clear stomps their feet on the floor so hard they spill their Bud Lights into the crevices of their La-Z-Boys while hollering how inaccurate Jameis Winston is.

It happens whenever America’s Quarterback fails to connect on a pass.

The PFF tribe disagrees.

Impressive as practice closed today
