“It’s The Ultimate High”

September 26th, 2011

"You see that touchdown pass to Mike Williams, Jaws? That's Greg Olson takin' one right out of my old fuc*n playbook. Did I mention Tampa's running my plays? Earnest Graham will tell you. We called that Z-major cannon gully white zip-tie x-box roger nickel doosh zizz. Olson calls it 94Z, but it's the same damn play."

Everyone’s fired up to see the Bucs next week on Monday Night Football.

Why Joe’s even heard of fans running out to Best Buy to buy screen cleaner to catch every inch of the game online.

The excitement of the national stage isn’t lost on Raheem Morris, Ronde Barber and Donald Penn.

Barber on Monday night being special: It absolutely is. It’s the only game in town that day. It’s a big game. You know everybody’s watching. You get all day to sit around and think about it. You know what else has happened on every other game across the schedule. … You gotta treat it like every other game. You can’t treat it like something special. And that’ll be my message to the young guys.

Penn on Monday night: It’s the ultimate high. You’ve got to be ready for the moment, man. You’ve got to grasp that moment. Everybody in the world is going to be watching. You gotta grasp that moment. That’s the game you love to play in. That’s the games you love to play in. It’s a big difference. A lot of people don’t know about Buc football. We’re going to try and show them next week. I’ll be hear to answer questions from the younger guys.  We haven’t done well on Monday night, so hopefully we can turn that around. 

Raheem on his old boss in the house: You love the stage. Yeah it matters, man. You’re the one team playing and everybody else is watching. We end early on Mondays so we can watch Monday Night Football. We got Jon Gruden coming back to town. We got the old boss comin’ to town, man, we gotta have have a good showing. He’s watching me. He’ll be up in that box. I gotta make him proud. Monday Night Football is huge. It’s big. It always has been.

    Your Chucky captions always make my day!

    “doosh zizz” love it.

  5. Snookau Says:

    Why was Gruden’s playcall terminology so complicated anyways? I never understood that.

  6. Dave Says:

    As Rome would say GRRRREEEEAAAAAT caption.
    (and no, I do not care for Rome much, but I give it up to his interviews, he does a good job with them)

    Same game plan against Colts as it was for ATL on Offense: Run Blount 20+ times. Then run him a few more times.

    As far as Defense: get after Painter like they did Matty Ice and the Bucs win.

    They should have better numbers from the secondary though because they won’t have to sell out to stop the run like they did with Turner. That was why the LBs gave no underneath help most the day to the DBs.

    Against Indy, I think they should be able to handle the run game and cover a little better.

    Of course the BIG key is getting ahead so Freeney and Mathis don’t have a greenlight. penn better be ready for Freeney because I have a feeling Stocker will be helping trueblood on Mathis ALOT.

    Caption is hilarious!!!!!

  8. stimpy Says:

    The ATL game should have gotten as much hype as the MNF game.

    Ill have to check the piggy back [wife] to see if i have enough for the game.

    “jiminy christmas, Jaws. How do the Bucs expect to win with all these young guys? Where’s the White Tiger? Tim Brown? Grandpa Garcia?”

  10. Jrock Says:

    rofl that caption, seriously, lifted my spirits

  11. Blkdraft Says:

    I hope the Bucs will be wearing the all Black Jerseys on MNF..I can’t wait!!!!!

  12. BamBamBuc Says:

    That caption is priceless….. Olsen calls it 94z, love that. Gruden’s terminology was always ridiculous.

  13. bucsalltheway Says:

    Did he run a play during the superbowl called I don’t know what I’m doing but this is dingy’s defense and I’m gonna take credit and never return..gruden was the label on dungys recipe.

  14. gotbbucs Says:

    i dont know which will be worse, listening to brian billick make it obvious why he’s not an nfl coach anymore or listening to jon gruden talk about qb play as if he knows what he’s talking about. i think i’ll choose the mute button.

  15. Architek Says:

    I don’t care about Gruden and I look at him like a politician

  16. JohnL Says:

    That photo caption is disgusting…just like

    the rest of this comment was deleted as it insults your friendly host. Joe doesn’t come to your house and insult you. — Joe

    @Architek – The only politician associated with the Bucs is Dominik.

  18. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Why don’t you grow up and get a sense of humor. I have no problem with Gruden and I think the caption is hilarious. I would just about guarantee you that even Gruden would think it was funny.

  19. tony2cents Says:

    If Gruden was a politician, I’d see him as George W. He wasnt liked while in charge, but after he left, he kinda grows on you. I wouldn’t mind hanging out with Chucky and G Dub watchin some games in W’s mancave in Crawford munchin on some special brownies.

    Bruce Allen is more like Cheney. he’ll forever be disliked.

  20. m wesley Says:

    Hey Thomas,what class this young coach is showing.Please dont just post when we loose,it makes me think your not a fan.I really like that.

  21. Fish Says:

    Love the caption, Joe.

  22. Fish Says:

    Um, yeah, get over yourself JohnL.

    What all black uniforms, the Bucs have never played a game in black, that I know of. Have I been attending Bucs games in an alternate universe ? If I’m wrong about this I’d like to know when they did.

  25. McBuc Says:

    I remember black jerseys in one game a long time ago. I think it was the late 90’s…Then again, I may be remembering them selling black jerseys. They are cool looking. I am pretty sure they had one game in them, but for the life of me I cannot recall when and who they were playing.

  26. rhenry Says:

    The Bucs have never wore black jerseys in any game. This is not a guess but a fact. They did/do sell them as well as some silver versions.

  27. flmike Says:

    If I am not mistaken, the league only allows 3 game jerseys per team, dark, light & throwback.

  28. McBuc Says:

    rhenry…Then that is what I am remembering. Sometimes the mind plays tricks on itself. FLMke, that makes good sense as well. I have seen people wearing those pewter jerseys as well.
