The Buccaneers’ No. 1 receiver, 21-year-old star Mike Evans, hasn’t taken his foot off the gas since working out with Randy Moss this spring and joining America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, for a summer chemistry session in Tallahassee. (more…)

The Countdown: 20 Worst Buccaneers Personnel Moves Of The Past 10 Years — No. 8

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015
"Wait till you see what this guy has cookin' for 2013, Mr. Glazer. He's a Buccaneer Man."

“Wait till you see what this guy has cookin’ for 2013, Mr. Glazer. He’s a Buccaneer Man.”

It’s the countdown feature you’ve all been waiting for. Not really, but on the heels of last year’s award-winning “20 Worst Buccaneers Of The Past 10 years” feature, Joe had to deliver.

A list like this is highly subjective and toxic. Fits of rage were common during production meetings at JoeBucsFan.com world headquarters. Scared interns soiled their pants. Full beer bottles were smashed, and a treasured Rachel Watson poster was accidently destroyed. But order was restored.

Current and former general managers and head coaches might not like what’s coming, but it had to be done. This is what happens when your team is 30-70 in its last 100 games. (more…)

Lavonte David: No. 5

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015
Elite tackler.

Elite tackler.

‘Tis the season of lists! There is a list for quarterbacks. There is a list for defenses. There is even Joe’s list of hottest Bucs cheerleaders (Do you really wonder who Joe has ranked atop such a list?). (more…)

Jameis Not The “Face” (Yet)

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015
Not yet.

Not yet.

Joe knows that before the draft, the thin-skinned, scared midwives who curled up in fetal positions and sucked their thumbs at the thought of the Bucs drafting a quarterback, much less “America’s Quarterback,” signal-caller Jameis Winston, howled in protest. (more…)

Martin Cannot Break Tackles

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015
No longer can break tackles?

No longer can break tackles?

In the dog days of July, after folks have finished blowing off fireworks, it’s research time, as NFL teams all but shut down their facilities.

So the spreadsheeters have been working overtime at Pro Football Focus as the dawn of training camp is within sight. (more…)

Morning Cup Of Joe From HootersCalendar.com

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

hooters 2015.0721Start your day with the Morning Cup of Joe from HootersCalendar.com. And don’t forget to visit HootersCalendar.com for the 2015 calendar, amazing videos, pictures and cool gifts. It’s Joe’s second favorite website.

Wanna know why Joe doesn’t give a damn how many people are in the seats at the Den of Depression and why you shouldn’t either? The NFL distributed $226.4 million to each team last year from its various rivers of revenue. So, multi-billionaire Stan Kroenke, how it is you are taking a bath playing in that perfectly fine downtown dome in St. Louis? Attendance is such 1970s economics. [PFT]

Arguably Joe’s best high school football game came against the Freeburg (Ill.) Midgets. Thankfully, the krauts in southern Illinois don’t cave to made-up controversies by bored reporters and the politically correct. Don’t like the nickname? Don’t go to the games. [Belleville News-Democrat]

Packers president says the preseason is too long. Hallelujah! [NFL]

So Bruce Almighty says Redskins season ticket holders will get injury news before the NFL? Just a hunch, but NFL warden commissioner Roger Goodell may have something to say about that. [BSPN]

This is like something out of a comedy movie. [Vine]

Bucs rookie LT Donovan Smith posing with fellow Penn State product, the fetching Colleen Wolfe of NFL Now.

Yes, Bucs fans have little fingernails left, as they have been gnawing them and sweating over the very real possibility the Bucs will start three rookies on offense this year.

Then again, those three likely rookies, “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, left tackle Donovan Smith and right guard Ali Marpet, are an upgrade over the drek that played those positions last year. (more…)

What Were OCs Seeing?

Why did opposing offenses run so many two-back sets against Leslie Frazier's defense?

Why did opposing offenses run so many two-back sets against Leslie Frazier’s defense?

Yes, in the salad days leading up to training camp, Joe is scouring for Bucs news in places where there is no Bucs news. This is one of those cases. (more…)

Jameis Is Not “Hype”

Monday, July 20th, 2015
No hype.

No hype.

A week from Saturday begins the last stand of the Mike Glennon Mob. That’s when training camp opens and if the quarterback of the past and the quarterback of the future ever hopes to be the quarterback of the present and lead the Bucs, this will be his final shot.

That’s if you actually believe there is competition. (more…)

The Heat Is On

Monday, July 20th, 2015
Under heat.

Under heat.

When training camp begins a week from Saturday, it will be hot. No kidding, it is Florida.

But no, not just that. Bucs fans will be singed from the heat coming from “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston. (more…)

“Pride” Will Play A Major Role?

Sunday, July 19th, 2015
Lovie

An ex-Buccaneer weighs in

Joe and Bucs fans can argue all day long about whether Lovie Smith is on a hot seat, whether he must hit a certain number of wins in 2015 to keep his job.

But what is Lovie feeling? (more…)

No Need For Musical Chairs

No need to mess with Kwon Alexander's head by changing positions.

No need to mess with Kwon Alexander’s head by changing positions.

Bucs fans for years have had irritable bowel syndrome when it comes to safeties.

Obviously, Sabby the Goat was the perfect example but in latter years, the likes of Sean Jones, Mark Barron and Hawk Goldson have kept Bucs fans on the bowl for longer periods than expected. Those safeties have basically been bad hotel toilet paper. (more…)
