Monday, October 5th, 2015

lovie smith 0511You heard this song before, it was December 15, 2014. Lovie Smith had proclaimed “true football fans can see we’re on the verge.”

Lovie was back singing a passionate sequel at One Buc Palace moments ago. (more…)

Ex-Bucs Getting Irked, Too

A former Bucs player was not laughing about Bucs LT Donovan Smith's jovial Twittering last night.

A former Bucs player was not laughing about left tackle Donovan Smith’s jovial Twittering last night.

Bucs fans are in a deep state of depression today, on top of the normal Monday blues. It’s ugly out there.

Yet another season appears to be down the tubes, another January spent trying to remember what winning a playoff game feels like. (more…)

Former Bucs tight end Dave Moore and Joe weigh in

The last standout game played by Mike Evans was November 16, 2014.

Same Mystery, Different Year

Monday, October 5th, 2015

lovie 0912“Right before the half, I didn’t want to put more points on the board. I didn’t feel like we could. Only thing that could happen was something bad then.” — Lovie Smith, following the second home game of the 2014 season.

That’s right. Last year’s words foretelling yesterday’s disbelief. (more…)

Bucs “On The Brink”

Monday, October 5th, 2015

season on the brink

Joe can hear the words ringing in his head.

“Playoffs? Playoffs! Playoffs?!

Those were the famous words uttered by former Colts coach Jim Mora in a postgame press conference when asked about his team’s playoff chances. (more…)

Kyle Brindza, Gone

Former Bucs kicker.

Former Bucs kicker.

Who didn’t see this coming down Central Ave?

The Bucs waved goodbye to a rookie kicker with worse aim than Mr. Magoo, Kyle Brindza.

Magoo was horrible. He was 2-for-7 in his last two games, including two extra-points missed! A high school kicker would be benched for that tripe.

Yet despite this, he has two of the five-longest Bucs field goals in franchise history.

Burned And Exposed

A Lovie Smith wish came true yesterday

A Lovie Smith wish came true yesterday

2015 Blame Game Shouldn’t Include Team Glazer

Monday, October 5th, 2015

LichtThe blame game is one of the easiest and most creative exercises on earth.

You almost can’t lose. There’s always an angle to hang blame. Heck, last week, an ex-Buccaneer blamed the disease known as Kyle Brindza on former Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik. (more…)

George Johnson Channels Da’Quan Bowers

Bucs DE George Johnson thinks he may have a stamina issue.

Bucs DE George Johnson thinks he may have a stamina issue.

It unnerved Joe when he heard defensive-coordinator-in-name-only Leslie Frazier say a reason the Bucs have not gotten much out of defensive end sackless George Johnson was because he is not used to taking so many snaps.

WHAT? (more…)

Local Columnists Hammer Lovie

Monday, October 5th, 2015

lovie smith 0729Joe knows one human who reads a printed newspaper regularly. That’s about it.

Going Turtle Explained

Monday, October 5th, 2015
Bucs WR Mike Evans explains why the Bucs didn't try for a touchdown late in the first half.

Mike Evans explains why the Bucs didn’t try for a touchdown late in the first half.

Late in the first half, America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, marched the Bucs down the field into the Panthers’ red zone.

The clock was ticking. Surely, with a No. 1 overall draft pick and a pair of twin towers at wide receiver, the Bucs would start taking shots in the end zone to tie the game at 17-17. (more…)

Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow

Monday, October 5th, 2015

lovie 1005

So the Bucs have reached the quarter pole of 2015, a good gauge to see how the team is doing.

In short, pathetic.

In fact, under Bucs coach Lovie Smith, the Bucs are in one of their worst periods in franchise history. This is not empty rhetoric. The numbers speak for themselves. (more…)

Takes jabs on Twitter.

Takes jabs on Twitter.

Ah, the age of social media. Only the dinosaurs, for reasons unknown, do not like social media as a whole.

Both the blessing and the curse of Twitter is that it is unfiltered. Raw emotion and candor are normally the tone of the day. (more…)
