“Mooch” Is Big On The Bucs

February 28th, 2011

Many Bucs fans seem to forget that prior to Team Glazer landing Chucky in a monumental transaction that resulted in a Lombardi Trophy sitting in the lobby of One Buc Palace “Mooch,” Steve Mariucci, then the coach of the San Francisco 49ers, turned down advances from Team Glazer to coach the Bucs.

A few months later, Mooch’s Niners got trampled by the Bucs at The CITS as the Bucs rolled toward Philadelphia and the NFC Championship a week later.

So it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Mooch, now an analyst for the Man’s Channel, the NFL Network, is high on the Bucs.

(You know the type that doesn’t have the NFL Network: it’s the same kind of a low person who hosts Oscar parties and serves guests spinach dip and wine coolers and can pick some nondescript person called “James Franco” — whoever the hell that is — out of a crowd.)

Bucs intrepid multimedia maven Scott Smith is part of the Bucs contingent in Indianapolis at the glorified track practice NFL Combine and Smith grabbed Mooch for some thoughts on the Bucs.

“I like where the Bucs are headed. Raheem’s second year, they’ve made great progress. Systems are in place on both sides of the ball. They know what they want to do scheme-wise so they know what kind of kids fit their systems.”

Mooch said this is the case because the Bucs already have a franchise quarterback in Josh Freeman. As if reading from a script, Mooch said, “It all starts there.”

Where has Joe heard that before?

Maybe it’s a good thing for Smith that Mooch doesn’t like the Bucs as much as he does Marisa Miller.

    I always liked Mooch, his thoughts seem to be right on most of the time.

    Nice jabs at the Oscars Joe, pretty funny.
