Rich Gannon Hops On Josh Freeman Bandwagon

October 29th, 2010

Now Joe knows Rich Gannon isn’t exactly Rachel Watson. He’s not a Bucs cheerleader for a variety of reasons. The Bucs crushed him in the Super Bowl, Derrick Brooks ended his career shortly thereafter and then the Bucs jettisoned Chucky. Gannon is an avowed Chucky acolyte and close confidant of the former Bucs Super Bowl-winning leader.

So when Joe heard Gannon, with his co-host of “The Blitz,” Adam Schein, heard exclusively on Sirius NFL Radio, sing the praises of the Bucs and specifically Josh Freeman, it took Joe aback.

Adam Schein: The Bucs travel to the desert and if they win in Arizona, that’s a huge win for our Buccaneers, Rich.

Rich Gannon: They are learning how to win. They are learning how to win. Josh Freeman, this kid gets it. I really like what I see from him. He takes care of the football and he makes good decisions. There’s not a guy I’d rather have in the league in the last two minutes of the game than my guy Josh Freeman.

Wow. Pretty strong compliment from a guy not necessarily known for tossing out praise to the Bucs in any form.

    EXACTLY My thoughts BMA… EXACTLY.

  3. JDouble Says:

    Screw both of those yahoos. They are both Buc hating douche bags and they’ll be right back to hating after our next loss. We don’t need them.

  4. George C. Costanza Says:

    Schein mighta been saying “our Bucs” tongue in cheek. Gannon, I think, is completely sincere.

  5. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Now that Dungy is gone, perhaps the media will stop hating on the Bucs.

    Personally, I think they’re a bunch of bandwagoners.

    BTW, Gary Sheldon has not made an appearance at One Buc since Morris got the better of him and called him a loser. Now Raheem has taunted Sheldon publically…said that Gary is hinding because he’s afraid Morris saw the article of hate he wrote.

    How much do you want to bet that Sheldon comes out if we lose this next game?

    Nice we get a little love from Gannon and Schein. Always liked those guys! I think Raheem’s statement about “best team in NFC” was cool! Especially liked the”yeah,I said it!” follow up! Statistics and giving a sh?t about Gary Sheldon is for looooooosers! Raheem rocks- Gary needs to know his Role!

    I love that Gary Shelton hasn’t shown his face LOL…. He looks like Walter Brimley (the Oatmeal guy) , Shelton sucks and I can’t stand his videos he talks so slow…. Im loving the exposure the Bucs are getting, Raheem is taking pressure off of the team and putting it on him


    Excellent photo choice, Joe. Bravo.

    Capt Tim,

    Is that in “Know your role and shut your mouth, jabroni”?

    Raheem can always get a job as a stand up comic. I also like how he played the refs last week. He knew they were screwing him, but he’s in it for the long haul, and what better way to win them over, than the way he did.

    Nice way of jumping onto the bandwagon Schein…after so many trashings you did over in the offseason, but of course being 4-2 will get so many bandwagoners coming out of the woodwork! Go Bucs!!!! Bucs Fan since 1995…
