Stylez White On The Bubble?

August 26th, 2010

Joe can’t believe what he’s hearing from Tampa Tribune Bucs beat scribes Woody Cummings and Anwar Richardson in the latest Bucs Beat v-log.

Both explain why the Bucs may be on the cusp of cutting Stylez G. White. Interesting stuff.

Joe absolutely can’t fathom the Bucs cutting their only proven pass rusher. Maybe he gets demoted, if the Bucs’ brass doesn’t like him anymore. But cut?

Richardson and Cummings targeted another big name on the “bubble.” Joe won’t spoil it for you. You’ll have to watch the video.

    I’d be shocked.

  2. tha truth is... Says:

    if he’s released, who in tha holy fluck gonna replace him. He’s our best D end, along wit tha most experience.

  3. lightningbuc Says:

    While there is nothing wrong with stating your opinion, that is all this is. I don’t think these two have any real insight from the Bucs for what they are saying. God, from everything we’ve been told, Clayton is an awesome practice player who can’t carry it thru to Sundays.

  4. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Actually, I’m not even going to watch their video…however I stated in the recent past that they should cut him. He’s simply wrong for this defense, and he’s getting up there in years. If we want an established line, we need them young and developing at the same time, or we need to hit free agency.

    I would not be surprised if the top 2 picks for us next year are safety and defensive end.

  5. Josh Says:

    joe why would the bucs cut there only legitimate defensive end and pass rusher? does not make any sense at all. There must be a trade brewing if bucs were to cut white. Dont think this is gonna happen though.

  6. Brad Says:

    I’ve heard Haynesworth is coming.

  7. RastaMon Says:

    hmmm…..if that is the way the feel about him and his future in the D’s plan….save him…play him…prove him….trade him before the trade deadline…..if not use him up this year

  8. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I hope we get some draft picks for them if they do get cut.

  9. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Everyone else is getting demoted, why not Stylez?? Demote a new person every day. Keep the streak alive !

  10. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    …and notify them all via twitter of course !

  11. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’m not surprised by this news. I think Raheem is not happy with the way his team played against the Chiefs and he is trying to light a fire under their @$$es, and they need it. I also think Rah has his pets and he probably is being unfair. Show me a Coach that is fair, and I’ll show you a losing team. We have all been critical of Ward, Sabby, Clayhands, Truebonehead, and some others, all with justification. It is nice to see Rah agrees in some cases and doesn’t want to lose again. I like his attitude, but now that Eric is starting to agree with Coach, I think we are in deep $h!t. They also may be targeting some DE’s that will be cut from some of the better teams, to replace Stylez(what a stupid name anyway). I think that Crowder & Bennett are coming on strong and may just take his job. I don’t see this as a great loss, but hope Stylez wakes up and plays better. We need maximum sustained effort from everybody all the time.

  12. safety Says:

    I don’t buy it.
    Too many stupid articles about the Bucs have come from the MSM lately, like ‘Ronde isn’t going to the Ravens.’ This piece of intrepid reporting has the same feel.
    What the hell is that all about, anyway?
    I’d bet dollars to donuts White starts for us all season long.

  13. Dew Says:

    Anything is possible. We have others of equal skill and more upside IMO.

  14. k_bassuka Says:

    The guy doesn’t practice hard, doesn’t want to be a leader of a young DL and is up there in age. He was alright last year but that was last year I hope he shows some fire Saturday if not cut trade bench him and let the development of the young guys continue.

  15. Tommy Boy Says:

    I refuse to watch the video because suggesting Stylez could be cut is dumb enough. I don’t want to listen to more crap reporting from the folks at TBO.

    Furthermore, I laugh everytime I see someone reference “upside” when talking about backup players. It makes me wonder if they are just regurgitating what they’ve heard talking heads say.

    Please Dew explain to me what you mean by “upside” and why you think Stylez lacks such qualities.

  16. Tommy Boy Says:

    Amen safety. I totally agree.

  17. BigMacAttack Says:

    So who’s going to the game? Anybody? I hate the Faguars.

    I don’t know what it is, but so many times Players get the nice contract and turn to $hit. It happens time and time again, and Stylez has gotten worse since he got his pay raise when Gruden was still here. I don’t see any excuse for not practicing hard. I like the Shanahan way, no prisoners.

  18. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Eric just hates Sabby , so now he is pretending it’s professional to call out players in the media, simply because he likes it.

  19. Bucnjim Says:

    All coaches call out players in the media! Media asks questions like is Sabby playing well? “NOPE” Will he lose his starting job “YEAH” simple as that. Parcell’s would call players out in the media and it worked!

    Speaking of media; Bengals getting ready to cut Antonio Bryant. Nice move dumping him off just in time…

  20. Posey99 Says:

    White has been our best pass rusher and he’s entering a contract year I believe… Cut him?

  21. BamBamBuc Says:

    All I gotta say is if they cut him, I’m gonna miss his interviews. He’s a funny guy. Doesn’t practice hard, doesn’t do a lot of the things you’d like to think a professional would do to be prepared to do his job, but gotta love his sense of humor. Who knows though, Bennett has played pretty good, and may be pushing to get that spot.

  22. BigMacAttack Says:

    Raheem is getting better in his press conferences. His rambling has gone way down and it sounds like he has been getting coached for public speaking. He even referenced it once about talking too fast especially about defense which he said he loves. I just hope like hell they don’t keep Clayton. Hopefully Peanut will do well Saturday and not get cut, but I want to see Spurlock make the team. I think he’s earned it, and only Mike Williams has played better but it’s close. Big test with Jones-Drew and our run stopping. Rah said starters will play the whole first half, which is good. JJ has to settle down and make some plays. Freeman could be Week 2, but I don’t think they will say that. It’s a 3 week injury pretty much which to me is Week 2. If JJ is playing well, I wouldn’t take a chance on Freeman.

  23. Gatorbuc15 Says:

    I understand that White hasn’t been a great leader at times, but I still think he is one of our better, if not the best, defensive linemen the Bucs have. The Bucs cannot afford to cut him. He’s just too good.

    A big plus about him, is that he can still get better.

  24. gotbbucs Says:

    i really see no reason to cut him. we do have some really promising looking young guys that they may not want to chance losing on waivers. if nothing else, styles is a good nickel rusher.

  25. ZeroExpectations Says:

    k_bassuka spoke the truth:

    “The guy doesn’t practice hard, doesn’t want to be a leader of a young DL and is up there in age. He was alright last year but that was last year I hope he shows some fire Saturday if not cut trade bench him and let the development of the young guys continue.”

    Amen to that.

  26. eric Says:

    Perhaps we should have drafted a DE instead of two DT’s?

    Or perhaps addressed the glaring need in Free agency?

    Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah nobody good does stuff like that!

  27. Javier n Wimauma Says:

    Trade White, Clayton and Ryan Sims for Albert Haynesworth… Bruce Allen take that and by off loading those salaries, we can stomach Haynesworth salary.

    Also, is there a mole in the Bucs lockerroom or something?

  28. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Bucnjim , Parcells was Parcells. There are few like him. Most can’t get away with that. The quickest way to lose a locker room is to start talking trash about guys to the media.

    The question wasn’t “is sabby playing well” , the question was, “what do you think about sabby being upset with his benching”…he then went out of his way to bash sabby, when the smart simple answer would have been ,” good, i want competitive guys and they should all be mad when they get sat down”….then if need be you can call sabby into your office and set him straight in private. That is what Dungy would have done.

  29. Patrick Says:

    Oh, wow this just keeps getting better! Who gives a rats ass if he’s not practicing well? Hasn’t he always been like that?? Not good in practice, but good in the regular season? Tell me, how is cutting our only proven pass rusher going to help this team?! Yeah, yeah… let’s just turn to one of these undrafted rookie free agents that have “UPSIDE”. What a joke. As fans, we have to be forced to just have all of this hope in a bunch of people that probably wouldn’t even make another roster. I mean, any of those guys with “upside” or “potential” would be lucky just to match the production from Stylez.

  30. ZeroExpectations Says:

    Who gives a rats ass what Dungy would have done.

    Is Dungy God?

  31. ZeroExpectations Says:

    FYI… somehow Patrick and myself both used rats ass within the same posting of a comment at the same time? BUT, I am not Patrick. So, that was weird.

  32. ZeroExpectations Says:


    First of all, the goof changed his name to Stylez.

    Second of all, he isn’t that great, and can’t even show up at practice.

    Third, he’s 30 and has a multi-million dollar contract.

    Fourth, he was once too, an undrafted free agent.

  33. ZeroExpectations Says:

    I think we should all be totally honest with ourselves here:

    The Glazers are trying to off load the multi-million dollar contracts.

    And considering Clayton, Ward and White all have million dollar sums that could help team Glazer pay off their ‘other’ football team in the UK, then cutting those older guys who are not part of the future is a good plan financially. We gonna lose anyway. Lets save the Galzers some money.

    Maybe this is a test for Raheem and Mark: “Cut these guys and you may stay around for a third year boys”…. “oh goody, goody!!! I’ll take a 3rd year as the head coach of an NFL franchise at ANY cost. Yessir! What ever you say sir!”

  34. Patrick Says:

    @Zero Expectations

    Wow that is pretty weird!

  35. ZeroExpectations Says:

    Too late Pat, you are now Zero as well. Muhahahahaaa! 🙂

  36. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    “Who gives a rats ass what Dungy would have done.

    Is Dungy God?”

    No he is the son of God , along with Tim Tebow.

  37. Tampa2 Says:

    Didn’t stylz come from Jay Gruden’s Arena team in Orlando? And he worked as a stock clerk at Best Buy over there too. Bennett is doing some things at Stylz Position and may well beat Stylz out. With Raheem, ya never know!
