Joe advises you to use the best in town, Craters & Freighters of Tampa.

The Henry Melton X-File Grows

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

MeltonRemember when Lovie Smith directly instructed Joe not to read much into Henry Melton practicing at defensive end because, per Lovie, Melton only practiced there because somebody probably needed “a blow?”

Yeah, well, Joe never bought that. And Melton started at left defensive end last night. (more…)

Man, it was like Joe was watching two different teams. Ten days ago, in their first at-bat of the 2015 preseason, the Bucs didn’t look better than they were last year.

"America's Quarterback" sure seemed at ease the past two weeks playing behind backup center Jeremiah Warren.

“America’s Quarterback” sure seemed at ease the past two weeks playing behind backup center Jeremiah Warren.

Jameis caught by cameras off the field pumping up his fellow Bucs.

Last night, as with all home games, Joe was in the press box. There, Joe has to get out of his seat and crane his neck to see a TV replay of the Bucs play during a telecast, and there is no audio (for obvious reasons as folks are working). So often, fans will see (and hear) more on TV from home than Joe ever will. (more…)

Did Jameis Black Out?

“America’s Quarterback” seems so much comfortable with Jeremiah Warren at center.

Joe isn’t being off the wall here.

Doug Martin takes a handoff from “America’s Quarterback.” Joe thinks it is safe to say the “Muscle Hamster” has returned. Photo courtesy of Buccaneers.com.

Joe had heard Doug Martin say how he is healthy and ready to rock and roll this year.

Then again, what did Joe expect Martin to say, he wanted to barf on Evan Smith and get cut?

So Joe was skeptical entering the preseason games of what Martin could do. (more…)
