Licht Got His Man

April 25th, 2019

Strictly an ILB.

It seemed from the way Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht spoke, he could have run his team’s draft from Hooters at Clearwater Beach. [read more]

No Excuses From Jason Licht And Bucco Bruce Arians

April 25th, 2019

No. Joe doesn’t like the Devin White pick at No. 5 overall.

Sure, he might be an excellent player, but he’s going to have to damn near be a superhero to be worth that pick on a team in need of defensive linemen. [read more]

Devin White Highlights

April 25th, 2019

LSU linebacker Devin White

The Bucs inexplicably decided to be only the third team in the past 26 years to draft an inside linebacker in the top-five.

This guy better be the second coming of Ray Lewis to pass up on Ed Oliver and Josh Allen.

Bucs Buck History; Pick ILB

April 25th, 2019

New Bucs ILB.

In a passing league, the Bucs decided to hit the way-back button to the 1970s.

With stud pass rushers Ed Oliver and Josh Allen on the board, the Bucs chose inside linebacker Devin White.

Don’t ask Joe to logically explain this.

The LSU linebacker should start right away. In the proud Bucs tradition, they are allergic to pass rushers.

NFL Draft, Open Thread

April 25th, 2019

Among the thousands of daily readers here, less than 1 percent like to share a comment or two, or 10. So Joe is firing up a draft-day open thread so you folks have a place to collect your prognostications — and be praised or laughed at later.

Have fun. Play nice. It’s not that hard.

Dominik Thinks Bucs Keep GMC

April 25th, 2019

Curious prediction.

Many folks inside and outside of NFL circles believe the Bucs will soon part ways with stud defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

The man who drafted GMC isn’t on board with this concept. [read more]

Hideous Bucs Drafting

April 25th, 2019

“I’m going to Vegas next year Ed and you will still have to deal with all of those [email protected]#$%^&&cking know-it-alls in Tampa. Jiminy Christmas!”

Report: Bucs Will Address Pass Rush

April 25th, 2019

Bucs GM Jason Licht.

The fun part about the draft is speculation, drama, and hope all rolled into one. Combine all three in a handful of hours, and you have a full day (so long as it also includes Joe’s good friend Alcohol). [read more]

The Soft Side Of Bruce Arians

April 25th, 2019

Smooth operator.

Joe has decided to document highlights of Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians captured when he coached Arizona during the inaugural season of “All or Nothing,” a “Hard Knocks”-like miniseries by NFL Films that follows a pro or college team throughout a season and is exclusive to Amazon Prime. Joe hopes these highlights will help Bucs fans learn what to expect from the 12th coach in franchise history. This series of posts will appear periodically until the days leading up to the draft later this month.

Bruce Arians can cuss with the best of them. But one reason players seem to bond with him is deep down, he cares for them. [read more]

The Bucs And Elgton Jenkins

April 25th, 2019

Yeah, tonight’s the big first round of the NFL Draft, but Joe’s not expecting fireworks.

Barring a special trade offer, the Bucs will sit tight and, hopefully, do the smart thing and draft a defensive lineman.

Joe’s already more focused on Round 2. [read more]
