“We Had A Slow Day Friday.”

December 13th, 2009

Joe hopes the Glazers are reading JoeBucsFan.com today, or at least listening to the Buccaneers Radio Network.

Josh Freeman just confirmed that the Bucs had a crappy practice on Friday. “We had a slow day Friday,” Freeman said on 620 WDAE-AM following Sunday’s blowout loss to the Jets.

CBS color analyst Rich Gannon, during the first quarter of the game, blasted the Bucs for what he observed to be a lifeless practice on Friday. “They weren’t going full speed,” Gannon commented.

Joe feels bad for stating earlier that Gannon might have been pounding the Bucs mercilessly to indirectly prop up his buddy Chucky. (Sorry, Gannon. Joe owes you a Caybrew.)

As for the lame practice on Friday, being so weak that a rookie quarterback takes notice no less, Joe can not excuse Raheem The Dream.

So many pundits and intelligent observers keep praising the Bucs for continuing to play hard. Did the offense really play hard today?

And Raheem the Dream spouted all through the preseason that his team would practice harder than any in the league. “Because we have to, ” Raheem The Dream once said.

Shame on the Bucs for not being ready for the 6-6 Jets, and their first home game in three weeks.

    The Miami Dolphins are now 7-6.

    It showed. The players packed it in with little effort offensively. We were playing for the #1 pick and it showed. I firmly believe the owners and front office want to be quiet and sly, but they want the #1 pick and the only way to do that is to lose. In that regard, they get an A+ for this game. Kudos. Suh, here we come.

  3. Paul Says:

    This is unacceptable, I’ve heard similar things throughout the season and off season about half-assed practices. Remember all the canceled practices in the offseason?

    The team has neither discipline nor direction. As fans we have no hope until we see the buzzards circling the Coach’s Office.

  5. Greg Says:

    Joe, just this Friday you were saying that the Bucs could only hurt themselves in the long run if they won this game, so with that being said, why do you say shame on the Bucs for not being ready? A loss is exactly what you were wanting.

    Joe here,

    Greg, never said I wanted them to lose just that a win might be worse in the long run. And I clarified that further in the comments for that post. Would never root for the Bucs to lose. That’s not what was written.

  7. Greg Says:

    Joe, gotta tell you that when I was sitting in the sun getting blistered watching this team go through the motions, I was thinking the players must have read your article and decided to take it upon themselves to ensure we keep the #2 pick! I know you wouldn’t deliberately root for the Bucs to lose, but today was pathetic, and another $450 wasted!

    Practice? You’re talkin’ ’bout practice?
