“I Guess I Got To Step My Game Up!”

May 22nd, 2012

As Joe sweats like zoo animal at the Bucs OTA practice today, Joe thought he’d share this stray nugget from manbeast Bucs guard Carl Nicks, who Twittered out his reaction to being named to the Top-100 Players of 2012 by his fellow players recently.

Nicks checked in after his All-Pro 2011 season at No. 76 in the NFL, but that was down from his ranking last year. It seems Nicks took this as a wake up call rather than an opportunity to complain or pat himself on the back.

@bigbrickhouse77 – Man.. It’s an honor to be on top 100 but I dropped like 25 slots!… I guess I got to step my game up!

Joe loves the attitude. And one of the few happy offseason thoughts for Joe is imagining LeGarrette Blount and Doug Martin pounding the rock behind Nicks and Davin Joseph and Jeremy Zuttah, a definite upgrade from Jeff Faine.

If Greg Schiano resurrecting the ’72 Dolphins offense works, Joe won’t have to worry much about the shaky Bucs defense. It will rarely be seen on the field.

    That is crazy talk … Blount and Martin behind Nicks and Joseph .. Cant wait to see that in action in the 4th quarter when every yard counts X3.

    Nicks is a BEAST!!!

    Best free agent signing of the season, by any team. 2’nd best signing is Vincent Jackson.
