“That Has To Rankle Somebody”

Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Was Charles Sims forced to play too early from an injury or was he simply over-hyped?

Was Charles Sims forced to play too early from an injury or was he simply over-hyped?

It is the chicken-or-the-egg theory with Bucs’ running attack, or lack thereof last year.

As a team, Tampa Bay only ran for 1,375 yards. In. A. Season.

Doug Martin was hurt and ran with his head down, for the most part, and tried to bowl over linebackers making little effort to be evasive. Charles Sims — let’s be brutally honest here — was either over-hyped or forced to play too early coming back from a bad wheel, or both.

The magic of "America's Quarterback," Jameis Winston, rubbed off on the Lightning last night as Jameis was in attendance.

The magic of “America’s Quarterback,” Jameis Winston, rubbed off on the Lightning. Jameis was in attendance last night.

Damn.), Joe’s Twitter feed blew up with photos of “America’s Quarterback,’ Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, in a luxury box at the thrilling Lightning overtime win. (more…)

Help Is Needed

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015
????????????????????

Bill Polian wags a finger at those who believe the Bucs are a complete team.

Yes, the Bucs added a franchise quarterback in the draft, “America’s Quarterback,” Jameis Winston. Yes, the Bucs added a pair of rookie offensive linemen projected to be starters.

Also, the Bucs bought quite few second-tier free agents that not just add depth, but know Lovie Smith’s defense. (more…)
