Jeremy Trueblood Will Not Get Wally Pipp’ed

November 2nd, 2010

Joe decided to take a brief moment from his grueling day banging on a keyboard to enjoy Raheem Morris’ radio show, heard exclusively on the Bucs radio network, locally in the Tampa Bay area on WDAE-AM 620.

During the show, which accepts callers, one Bucs fan was giddy like Joe and other Bucs fans about the play of right tackle James Lee in the win over the Cardinals, who was starting in place of injured Jeremy Trueblood.

The caller asked Raheem if Lee’s play meant that Trueblood will be sitting on the bench when he is healthy to suit up again.

That’s not happening, per Raheem.

While waxing poetic about the play of Lee, Raheem quashed any rumors of Trueblood losing his job when Raheem said emphatically that “Jeremy Trueblood is our starting right tackle.”

    Coach speak.

    Lee probably played better on Sunday than Trueblood has in his 5 years here in Tampa

    I just watched the game for a second time, this time paying attention to the lines and not following the ball. Damn, Lee is nasty! He was manhandling the Cardinals all game long. I get it that you don’t want Trueblood to lose his job due to injury, but I have a feeling they are going to find a way to get Lee on the field again. If we lose Trueblood this offseason, we will be just fine with this guy.

    What in the world is going on, is not like Trueblood is a good, heck not even decent RT, he is a bench player in most teams specially those with winning records.

    Maybe Trueblood should be “injured” for one more week. Wouldn’t want to aggravate it…or he could be an emergency backup.

  5. Kevin Says:

    Lets see what Coach does when Trueblood gets the next 15 yard penalty at the most crucial point of the game.

    Pipp actually got hit in the head with a ball and developed a chronic head ach 2 weeks after Lou Gehrig replaced him a first base. Its still a great uban legend.
