“He’s A Freak. There’s No Other Way To Put It.”

September 30th, 2010

Even the most casual Bucs fan can see Kellen Winslow stand out on the field, displaying extreme athleticism and focus on the ball.

It’s even obvious during practice. He’s exciting with mad skills.

Sadly, Winslow only has 11 catches this season, way off his 2009 pace, and he’s a tad behind his NFC South brethren, Jeremy Shockey and Tony Gonzalez.

Joe expects some breakout games from Winslow, and the Bucs will need that, if they are to compete against solid teams this season.

While Winslow was pretty quiet on Sunday, he did turn in a phenomenal one-hand grab on a tipped ball thrown by Josh Freeman early in the game. On a scale of 1-1o, the difficulty there was 11.

Raheem Morris was asked about that play and Winslow’s impact during his news conference yesterday. Raheem is smitten with his tight end soldier

“He’s a freak. There’s no other way to put it. He makes plays that I don’t coach. He makes plays that he just has that inate ability to make a play,” Morris said. “But he’s awesome. He’s a freak, man. He brings energy to our football team like no one else.

You know, we all joke about him a little bit. I see Geno [Hayes] out there doing the Kellen routes today because we missed him on the practice field. He brings us a different type of energy and a different type of flow, and a different type of playmaking ability.”

With all that ability, Joe would like to see the Bucs get him more involved. There is no reason to save or baby Winslow. He’s in his prime. He’s got limited life left on his knees. Let him loose all over the field.

    Winslow and Mike Williams are going to help each other out by opening things up for the other, that is if we ever establish a running game…. Go BUCS

    Seriously, Joe, when is Kellen gonna earn enough respect to lose the obligatory “soldier” reference?

    I’m sure you wouldn’t want to be haunted by something you said as a 19 year old.

    Your jokes are lame and stale: CITS, The “Too Hebrew Sounding” King David Show, The Soldier.

    I don’t mind you cracking wise, but you’re beating dead horses…You’re worse than Larry Miller

    (Here’s where Joe tells me I can go somewhere else if that’s how I feel 10:1 odds)

    Hmm Joe, lately most of your articles are good reads, but not good from discussion/argument point of view.

  7. admin Says:

    Joe here –


    Contrary to popular belief, Joe writes what he feels, not to create hysteria and gazillion comments. The passionate wild discussion surely will return naturally soon. The Bucs and their action dictate that, for sure.

    FireGregOlson – Look, pal. Joe killled the “Sgt” reference to Winslow over a year ago. If you click on the soldier link above, it is MORRIS who called him a soldier just a few weeks ago. It’s not a joke. It’s how the coach referenced the player. …And why is it “haunting” him. There’s nothing wrong with it. The guy said it all fired up in the locker room with his brain all wired from the game, not in some college newspaper interview while sipping Snapple with a hottie campus paper reporter.

    And right on cue, if you don’t like Joe’s writing/sense of humor, you know what to do. 😉

    LOL!!! All of the Above!

    Look Pal…. Crack me up!

    This is like freakin Cheers, where everybody knows your screen name.

    “Well ya see, Norm, it’s like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine ! That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers.” — Cliff Clavin

    Wonder if the freak will make it to the dynasty.

  14. admin Says:

    Don’t think so, Eric. He’s one of the few “now” guys, a gold brick on the path to lasting contender status. …That’s why they should just get all they can from him now. — Joe.

    It’s “innate”

  16. FIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    I stand corrected Joe.

    I apologize. I didn’t do my due diligence by clicking the link.

    Will you ever forgive me?
