Not that long ago, winning wasn’t expected at One Buc Palace. It was demanded.
Division titles were expected. The team had loftier goals than merely getting to .500.
Oh, how things have changed. (more…)
Since the moment Stinking Panthers quarterback Cam Newton got tossed around in his truck earlier this week from an accident, Joe has heard Bucs fans moan that the Pewter Pirates will now have to face Newton’s backup Derek Anderson.
Why would Bucs fans be scared of such a thing? Anderson, really? Yeah, yeah, yeah, Joe knows Anderson picked apart the Bucs on opening day, specifically targeting tight end Greg Olsen. (more…)
The Buccaneers’ stable of running backs is just fine.
A former Buccaneer says Tampa Bay is well set at that position and puts this year’s running game failures on the blocking in front of them. (more…)
Joe just cannot believe how long the past 12 months have been, and how much has happened, starting with a new coach, new general manager, new assistant coaches and tons of new players.
Even the most ardent pewter-colored-glasses-wearer must admit virtually every major player transaction, but a scant few, has been a major swing and a miss. (more…)
Bucs legend Derrick Brooks didn’t like what he saw Sunday in Detroit — early in the first quarter.
That’s right. Brooks watched the Bucs-Lions game with his trained eyes and was ready to throw in the towel after a couple of series. (more…)
Bucs overlord of all things football, Lovie Smith, spoke from the One Buc Palace podium this afternoon and said Gerald McCoy did not dislocate his knee cap yesterday. That was the claim after the game from ProFootballTalk.com. (more…)
ProFootballTalk.com claimed it was a dislocated kneecap. (more…)
The Bucs offense is miserable. Joe doesn’t think that statement will shock any Bucs fan. In fact, most Bucs fans might just be trying to forget the Bucs offense.
Whether it is turnover-prone Josh McCown or slumping Doug Martin or the troubles of the offensive line, there are a myriad of reasons. But the receivers are not why the offense is lame. (more…)
There are so many things to gripe about this year’s Bucs, one would have to be able to count far higher than 12 to list everything that’s gone wrong. It is enough to start drinking. But let’s save that for tonight.
One bright spot is Danny Lansanah. He has come a long way, from a bubble player who came from the UFL, to starting at linebacker. (more…)
It seems Bucs fans have reached their boiling point after Tampa Bay did its best on offense to lose a very winnable game against the Bengals.
The defense played just fine. The offense, well, it was like watching a Three Stooges flick at 2 a.m. after about eight beers. (more…)
First, why can’t anyone on the Bucs count to 12?
Isn’t there some coach’s grandson who has nothing better to do than whine about when he will go to Dairy Queen the Bucs could hire to count to 12? (more…)
From the time Joe played for a former NFL player who counted among his mentors Tom Landry, John Madden, Gene Stallings and Lou Holtz, Joe has always believed a good football coach adapts to his talent, to the changes in the game and is open-minded.
It’s great to hold firm to core beliefs, but football is cyclical. Good football coaches learn something new almost every week. The game is always changing. (more…)
The defense is playing well. They held the AFC North division leader to two scores today, and that was without stud linebacker Lavonte David.
One bright spot has been the play of Danny Lansanah. Playing in David’s spot, Lansanah racked up 14 tackles today, to lead both teams. He also had three tackles for loss. (more…)
Yes, super-talented, 24-year old quarterback Robert Griffin, III, has been benched and many believe his days in Washington are finished.
The Buccaneers, to be kind, could use a new starting QB. (more…)
