White Tiger Sighting

July 30th, 2010

Joe came across an interesting nugget while surfing the net, rounding up Bucs news last night.

It seems former Bucs receiver the White Tiger, Joey Galloway, is in the news, and for all the right reasons. Per Rick Maese of the Washington Post, who covers the Redskins for a living, Galloway began Redskins training camp as the team’s No. 1 receiver, so Maese twittered Thursday, via TheRedZone.com.

Yes, that Joey Galloway, 39-year-old wide receiver Joey Galloway who failed at his last stop with the Patriots and has caught a total of twenty passes in the last two years.

Yeah, the White Tiger is 39, but he’d still be starting if he was with the Bucs. Joe wonders what that high school offensive line coach would have done with the White Tiger if he was still around?

    If Gruden was still with Galloway, he would trade him for an older reciever. I dunno, meybe Lynn Swann or Drew Pierson

  2. nick Says:

    Speaking of……How the hell do the Bengals plan of getting Ochocinco AND TO on the same field at the same time? Must be some kind of new thing they’re going to try

  3. Capt.Tim Says:

    Who, by the way, would immediately have had enough of Lil Chuckys demeaning coaching style, and would unite the team in a laydown revolt! That action, being one of the first signs of the apocalypse, would trigger world wide catastrophes. Soon life on Earth would end! The Glazers foresaw this, and dumped the Lil guy just prior to the end of all things! Whew, that was close! He’s gone Joe, and needed to be! Let it go, let it go . . .

  4. BucnJim Says:

    The over/under before he quits or gets injured is five games. If they are losing I’ll lower it to three.

  5. eric Says:

    If Galloway was healthy, Chucky would probably get yet another 1000+ yard receiving performance from him.

    After all, Joey and others had their best years under Gruden.

    Wonder what he could have done with Brandon Marshall, AB, and Holmes?

    History would suggest a Division Title and a Super Bowl run.

    But nooooooooooooooooooooooo we gotta be happy with maybe 6-10 if were lucky as hell.

  6. oar Says:

    Say what you want about Galloway, but he had over 3300 receiving yards, averaged nearly 17 yards a reception, and scored 23 touchdowns from the ages of 34-36 with us. Most impressive is they were passes from Chris Simms, Brain Griese, Bruce Gradkowski, Tim Rattay, and Jeff “no-arm” Garcia. Funny how Gruden seems to be able to ressurect WRs careers.

    BTW CaptTim as quick as some are to defend/like Gruden, you seem to always be the first to “hate” on the man. Give it up. Let it go, right?!!!

  7. Capt.Tim Says:

    Ok, I got one more! I shouldn’t reveal this, as it is Classified information, but just prior to Grudens release, the Glazers recieved a priority document from the Commissioner. It stated, that if the Buccaneers signed one more player over 35 yrs old to start, they would be removed from the NFC south.. They would now be the first team in the NFLSD – “National Football League Seniors Division”. As the profit sharing for this league had not been resolved, ownership was forced to make changes as required to remain in the NFL. Don’t tell anyone where you heard this!

  8. BucnJim Says:

    If we had Marshall and Holmes he’d be on the bench pouting like he was in New England.

  9. BucnJim Says:

    I see what the Redskins are up to! They are getting themselves ready for the NFL senior division. I can’t wait to see how many of these guys are still on the field after say game 8.

  10. Capt.Tim Says:

    Yeah, I don’t know what I’m thinking! I’m all excited about Benn and Williams, but we coulda had a 39 year old guy! Man! We sign him, we are in the SuperBowl hunt for the next 24 friggin years!!! Retirement age is 63 yrs old, right! Wow! I think a player doesn’t even hit his stride til 40!! Meybe we get Riger Staubach in here and let’em grow together! You know, build Chemistry and timing while learning over the years! And where the hell is Jim Brown these days! Gotta have a couple runs left in him ! Hmmm, that ones not as funny, because it’s probably true! Yup, that’s the ticket! I see trophies in our future!

  11. oar Says:

    CaptTim, I see you have found a firstmate for your canoe. Hope you guys don’t tip it over patting each other on the backs! You now canoes aren’t for dancing!

  12. eric Says:

    When Benn or Williams string together three straight 1000 yard seasons, and lead the league in ypc, give me a call.

    Untill then they are unproven rookies in an offense with an unproven QB with a known idiot as coach.

    Yeah, that is gonna work out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Joe Says:

    Ochocinco AND TO

    Guilty pleasure watching that. Trainwreck waiting to happen.

  14. oar Says:

    BTW I never said we should have kept him, only he gave us some good years. All while he was here. Funny how you are such a “true Bucs fan”, yet you rag on the ex-players and the ex-coach like they were the plague? Did you rag on them when they were on the team, then? Cause, if so, then you are a hipocrite. Or did you have this same attitude you have now about your beloved Bucs then too? Or did you hope they failed then, cause that’s what it sounds like. I bet the former.

  15. Capt.Tim Says:

    You know, there’s just a cruelty there that breaks my heart! ” ifgalloway was healthy, Gruden would get another 1000 yds out of him!” join me in that little senario, shall we! ” ok, Joey, run crossing pattern over the middle! And hold on to the ball! That safety is gonna tear yer head off!” ” What! I don’t care about the athuritis in yer neck! Put that walker down and catch the ball!” ” No , Joey, the doc said the pins in your hip are holding up fine! Now go make me proud!” ” that’s it!, you got it., now LOOK OUT FOR THAT SAFETY!! ” oh no, MEDIC!”. “has anyone seen Joeys contacts or dentures lying around here?” listen, I respected Galloway a ton. Nothing but respect!! But JESUS CHRIST!! 39!!! Bruce Allen is up to same old, same old! But at some point, isn’t sending old men out ta get creamed by 25 year olds just “seniors abuse” ain’t none of you guys got a heart! That says bad things about the skins, when their top threat is drawing a pension- NOT the Bucs!

  16. oar Says:

    CaptTim, Way to swirl around the barrel! Maybe it’s the Ale barrel? LOL! I say good for him, if he stays healthy and plays. It isn’t you getting hit out there by said 25 year olds, so what does it matter?
    BTW It’s time to take off the “big boy underwear”! Training camp is here. You know what that means? Football season right around the corner.

    As for the Bucs or other teams and any ex-players, just five words – We will see soon enough!

  17. Capt.Tim Says:

    Eric-” unknown Wrs “, blah blah, ” unknown Qb”, blah blah, ” I love Chucky Sooo much”, blah blah, “idiot coach”, blah blah! Well, with all the idiot fans in the Slow squad, I’d say the universe is in balance! Shame to waste a great team on a bunch idiots, right?

  18. Capt.Tim Says:

    Oar- Good God man, it’s almost Christmas! Where’s yer compassion for your fellow man! Keep that attitude up, Mister, and you’re getting visited by 3 ghost on Christmas Eve! Lol! I know it’s not me getting hit by 25 year olds, but you wouldn’t want some Capt Tim sized Lugghead whacking yer Grandpa up side the head , would ya? That’s kinda how it felt watching the Bucs play the last few years- like watching a bunch a punks beating up a grey panthers rally. Enuff ta make a sensitive guy like the Capt. Get a Lil tear in his eye! Yer coach shouldn’t be the youngest guy on the field! I’m just saying! Most teams kinda gently push the old fellas out the door, before they get crippled. Mode of operation around here was- fill the Gatoraide cups with Prune juice, and send’em out there! Oh, the inhumanity of it all!

  19. BucnJim Says:

    I’ll go out on a limb here and say the Bucs will not only have a better offense, but better defense and overall record than the RedSeniors. Any Takers? Let’s check back after week 4 of the regular season and see how we are doing. If I’m wrong I’ll be the first one in line; if you guys are wrong then I don’t want to have to come looking for you.

  20. Capt.Tim Says:

    Oar- oh yeah! Football is almost here!! I already took off my “big boy underwear”, and “put my face on Somebody!”. And as soon as I get of the Orient road Stockaide, I’m heading to the Bucs Sat. Practice! Man, I gotta quit taking things so literally, or quit drinking in the mornings!- hmmm- not so literally it is!

  21. oar Says:

    CaptTim, With that thinking and attitude there would be no veterans in the league. Hell, might as well make it the NFOCFL(National Fresh Out-of-a College Football League). No thanks! Oh well, I guess I’m more ole school than most.

    BucnJim, I’m afraid, no matter what the outcome, there won’t be much of crow eating from either side. I for one, like mine grilled! LOL!

  22. oar Says:

    CaptTim, Good stuff and remember you can steer(navigate, should please the Capt) those vessels from both ends! lol

  23. MichiganBucsFan Says:

    What would Gruden do with Galloway if they were still here? Did you guys forget that Gruden was the one who fazed Galloway out of the offense when Antonio Bryant got here? I don’t think Gruden would have kept Galloway around either. But if he was here we would have either AB, Holmes, Boldin or Brandon Marshall here. I’m content with watching Benn and Williams (hopefully) become stars. That’s what the reality is right now, so why not just embrace it!

  24. Gary Says:

    Galloway was good for us, but he had no heart at all in the end and was let go for good reason.

    Anyone could get a 1000 yd. season out of him when all he did was out run the CB on straight go routes. Thats all he did. I never saw Gruden come up with creative routes for him to run… always a foot race. But I ain’t hatin’ on Gruden because thats all he would do. He was too pussy to run across the middle. So Chucky went with his only option.

    Him starting for the skins means either he is finally healthy and back to his old Buc days form (in which case he will be injured soon enough) or the skins don’t know he is finished and/or scared. McNabb will find out the first time he throws an inaccurate pass that forces Joey to adjust that he is no #1 anymore.

  25. Capt.Tim Says:

    BucnJim- that’s funny, but you diffinately gotta come looking for ’em. When the slow squad is wrong( All The Time!), they scatter like Cockroaches !

  26. FIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    Capt Tim is a tool

  27. JimBuc Says:

    Eric said:

    “If Galloway was healthy, Chucky would probably get yet another 1000+ yard receiving performance from him”

    🙂 🙂

    No need to respond to Eric’s comments. He does just fine on his own.

  28. JimBuc Says:

    If you read a little deeper than Joe’s article, Galloway ran with the first team so as to send a message to the younger WRs. Let’s not all get crazy now. Well, except for Eric, he cannot help himself. I mean we are talking about a WR.

  29. Capt.Tim Says:

    Joe” yeah, the white tiger is 39, but if he was still with the Bucs, he’d be starting” . Um, Joe, he’s not still with the Bucs because we, um, fired him! I’m may be wrong, but I think we fired him , cause he’s to old! Is this like the ole “Monte Python” skit- ” kill him!” “No, Make him King!” . . . He’s gone,Joe, let it go. Let it go . . .

  30. thomas Says:

    Settle down kids! Here are the facts:

    1. Joey is too old and brittle to be very effective today;
    2. For a few years, he was productive and dangerous here;
    3. Even at 39, he would still be our #1 receiver until he breaks down;
    4. This team right now has one of the worst receiving corps in the league;
    5. This team would be improved by the addition of a proven player at the position (although not Joey);
    6. I am not sure that Olson would know what to do with a better receiving corp;
    7. We still dont know if Freeman can consistently hit open receivers;

    Conclusion: Uh Oh! Can we beat Cleveland? If not, here comes 0-3 and the wheels will start wobbling.

    BTW -someone posted – we can beat the Steelers with Lefty! Wellwe couldnt beat the Falcons with Redman or the Panthers with Matt Moore or the Jets with Kellen Clemens – so dont be so sure.

  31. Capt.Tim Says:

    Firegre- oh,whatever. Yeah, meybe! But a 6’5″, 325lb tool is handy ta have around sometimes!

  32. oar Says:

    CaptTim, 325lbs? Man you don’t captain a canoe, you captain a pontoon.

  33. Javier n Wimauma Says:

    Did you idiots even watch the games when Galloway was tearing up?

    Joey Galloway may be the greatest Buccaneers WR we have ever had.

    This guy was ALWAYS catching long TD bombs. Are you clowns serious?

    Do I need to pull up all of his long TD bombs and point each and everyone out to you delusional clowns?

    Keyshawn didn’t do what Joey did. Neither did Green, Anthony, Kevin House, Michael Irvins side-kick… I would say the list goes on, but unfortunately, as far as WRs go in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers history, it pretty much ends there.

    I tell you what, for all you haters of Joey the best Buccaneers WR Galloway, I’m gonna pull up his great successes as a Buccaneer.

  34. Jonny Says:

    White Tiger is old as dirt and has lost his skills. Time to move on.

  35. JimBuc Says:

    Thomas — you would not know a “fact” if it bit you in the arse.

  36. JimBuc Says:

    Javier is Eric.

  37. Capt.Tim Says:

    Oar- that is both sad, and true:( but the capt. Is in great shape . . At around 280-290. Futher depression.

  38. BucnJim Says:

    Can you take your other two personalities Rahdom & Javier with you. Your ridiculous statements are slowing down the mentally stable fans on this site. Good luck at the asylum…..

  39. eric Says:

    I suppose we could ask Chucky, but he is busy polishing his Super Bowl Trophy.

    Meanwhile the dream is gazing at the gold star he won in the tenth grade for his “best self” presentation.

  40. Capt.Tim Says:

    Raheem is thinking that it’s great to be an NFL head coach. Chucky is thinking that it sucks he got fired, and is no longer an NFL headcoach

  41. ac3 Says:

    good one eric! my secretary is drafting your contract for stand up as we speak…

  42. Grudenite sighted! Says:

    Eric: Chucky will likely polish his one and only SB trophy for the rest of his life. Teams that fire coaches usually have bad rosters and Gruden’s patchwork can only get those teams to playoffs once every 3 years at best.

  43. Gary Says:

    LOL… I’ll give you that one Eric.

  44. oar Says:

    Sighted, You know you might be right? It did take a couple of years for Gruden to turn around the 4-12 Raiders to SuperBowl contenders. You remember the Raiders #1 offense that we played in the Big One, right? Same Raiders(really Callahan) that didn’t change that said offense’s playbook. Remember we knew all thier plays, cause they were Gruden’s playbook. Sometimes, you guys act like he is/was the worse coach to walk the face of the earth.

  45. Patrick Says:


    “Raheem is thinking that it’s great to be an NFL head coach. Chucky is thinking that it sucks he got fired, and is no longer an NFL headcoach”

    Chucky is not an NFL head coach right now, because he is choosing to be an NFL analyst, which he really enjoys!! And he’s also coaching his son at the same time. If he quit ESPN tomorrow, along with coaching his son’s school team, he would have a job in the NFL very fast! idiot!

  46. Patrick Says:

    NFL commentator i meant

  47. thomas Says:


    Any reference to you about my interpretation of fact being different than yours I believe is the HIGHEST praise. Because I view you as the least credible and least factual Glazer, Rah Dom – biatch that I have ever heard comment on any buc website!!

    So,thanks and please keep being critical and I will know that my commentary is spot on! You are my barometer of realistic, if you freak out and call it hate – then I know I have hit the sweet spot because you CANT STAND THE TRUTH punk!

  48. thomas Says:

    Did anyone see this part of the Penn article on PFT?

    “The Bucs have been notorious of late about avoiding big-money payments in the offseason, which has done nothing to quiet rumors that ownership is spread thinner than a small square of butter over an entire loaf of bread.” Avoiding having to pay $ in the offseason? What?Where is their cash?

    Also, I guess that holding out wasnt so idiotic, destined for failure etc for Penn. I guess the kids realized that w/o Penn a horrible start was inevitable. Good for Penn and Freeman as well – nobody can argue that this offense had a chance with Dotson protecting freeman.

  49. eric Says:

    So glad that Donald got his money out of these guys. IMO he earned it.

  50. Pete Says:

    Send him deep….uh.. or throw him a receiver screen….

    don’t get me wrong, I like Galloway.
