Vincent Jackson Is The Anti-Kellen Winslow

January 20th, 2013

Former Bucs tight end Kellen Winslow was an incredible talent. He also had an incredible ego.

Always demanding the ball, pouting when he wasn’t targeted, even if the Bucs scored a touchdown, it was all about K2 when he was here. Practice? Nah, gotta spin some discs poolside in Vegas, man.

So the Bucs sign Vincent Jackson and jettisoned K2, the Bucs’ passing offense — for fantasy football types — blew up like never before.

So, unlike K2, who is still unemployed and quit on the Patriots — yeah, Winslow couldn’t be bothered by winning because he would have had to have played for a hardarse, not a enabler — and went on a famous “toes on the line” screed, Vincent Jackson lauds Bucs coach Greg Schiano and wants to be his best recruiter, so he told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

“I couldn’t be more impressed with Schiano and his staff, the way they were able to come in here in one year, coming from the collegiate level to dealing with professionals,” Jackson said. “I know (Schiano) has some background in the NFL. But as a head coach, to take the reins the way he did, get his message across, get guys to buy in the way he did under totally different circumstances from years prior, he did an excellent job with that. He’s a lot of fun to play for. He’s a competitive guy, and he’s going to make sure you’re as well prepared as you can possibly be.

“I would tell (free agents) it’s a top-notch organization; it’s a top-notch structure. We have a great coaching staff here. They’ve built a system and a feeling of family and continuity, not only with the team itself, but I think they’ve done a great job in the community as well.”

Now this is what Joe calls a class act. It appears, thanks in part to Jackson reworking his contract, that Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik will have some monopoly money to play with in order to entice free agents to Tampa Bay (a cornerback or two?).

With a guy like Jackson, and Joe is sure Gerald McCoy as well, talking up the Bucs in Hawaii among the game’s elite, this cannot be a bad thing.

Meanwhile, Joe guesses while taking a break from watching football on this Championship Sunday, K2 is grumbling at his dog for not getting him the ball.

    too bad the fans here can’t be “top-notch” and supportive.

  2. Brandon Says:

    I definitely wouldn’t consider Jackson nor Nicks reworking their contracts proves much. He does say the right things to be a class act, but the contract rework put a lot more money in Nicks and Jackson’s already deep pockets due to sizable increase in taxes this year.

    The last sentence is priceless!

  4. Smitty Says:

    ^What Jesse said^…I LOLd.

  5. PRBucFan Says:

    I have a feeling this offseason is gonna be another great one and guys like VJ and Nicks are going to help attract some of the top notch FA’s available.

  6. Saskbuco Says:

    Hey Joe I’m sure you know but John Garrett hired as new WR coach

  7. Jimbo Says:

    Just find a QB…please!

  8. Kryq Says:

    Buccs hire John Garrett to be Wide Receiver coach.

  9. PRBucFan Says:

    Dissapointing hire IMO

  10. SacBucs Says:

    Joe I said in a earlier post that if the stinking dixie chicks make it to bowl we are the toughest division..Since the reformation, each of the teams in the South has been there. No other division can say that.

    Luther the loser its you Mr.I have the best opinionz! YOU And Punk Rock Bucfan..Throwing the idiot word around..Thats childish lil gurls.

    To all the kids on this site that insult real fans..You remind me of a kkk saying racsist stuff in the convience of your sheltered homes. Bring that shh outside cowards! Im color blind.

    Sorry Joe they dru first blood!

  11. Andrew 1 Says:

    Lol Joe, great one liner at the end there. lol

  12. Morgan Says:

  13. George Says:

    To the complainers… what reason do you have to already complain about the Garrett hire? So you know more about this than coach Schiano? OK, got it.

  14. teacherman777 Says:


    Totally agree.

    The fan base must do more to help our team. Loyal like Packers fans. They are the best in the league. Always classy. I guess its a small city thing.

    Go Bucs!

  15. PRBucFan Says:

    Just read the article on ESPN Dallas and it seems like the fanbase couldn’t wait for Garrett to leave town.

  16. BigMacAttack Says:

    Yeah, good one Joe. Lol

    I know nothing about Garrett but its another position filled rather quickly. They must like the guy and him liking the Bucs because its a lateral move that doesn’t say much for his (soon to be gone) brother. I can see Chucky taking the Cowboys in 2014. Still can’t believe Marinelli didn’t hold out for a DC gig.

  17. BigMacAttack Says:

    Erin Andrews is hot

  18. PRBucFan Says:

    Based off the comment section that is

  19. Andrew 1 Says:

    @ PR

    if the fans on the Dallas Website are anything like the fans on this website then I would listen to the complete opposite of what their saying and say that it was a good hire. lol

  20. Yar Says:

    Seems like John Garret is a pretty smart guy, got out of Dallas when he got the chance.

  21. Andrew 1 Says:

    VJ was great for us this past season, but I think a dominant TE would go along way to having a consistently explosive offense while also being a security blanket for Freeman. A TE who can who can catch AND block extremely well is something we have been lacking here for a long time. someone like Eifert from ND would be great.

  22. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’d like to see the Bucs get Martellus and Michael Bennett signed up. I think that would take care of the TE situation. Don’t know if Dom will but an OT in the first round would be nice. I like Fluker as they said and it would be a solid pick for RT. I hope Dom fills as many holes with FA’s as possible.

  23. BigMacAttack Says:

    Alex Smith looks totally dejected on the bench.

  24. PRBucFan Says:

    As long as the new TE doesn’t become JF’s new target to stare down resulting in picks like Winslow was lol…

    I’m stoked about this offseason. I like the McNulty hire, not excited about this one at all though.

    DB coach is who i’m wondering most about, I hope we really score big there.

  25. George Says:

    PRBF – I don’t care what the Dallas fanbase thought of him. People don’t like the appearance of nepotism. I care what his rep is with coaches and players. I also trust Schiano’s judgement over fans who make snap judgements. Bitch and moan, bitch and moan.

  26. PRBucFan Says:

    Yup, couldnt be more right bitch and moan bitch and moan lol 😉

    P.S. What would you consider yesterdays article about McNulty

    Bitching or moaning???

    According to you that is…

    Your right everything is cotton candy, care bears, and rainbows all the time.
    My bad, for not considering what you care about.

  27. BigMacAttack Says:

    PBRFan, I’ll drink to that.

    By commenting on other peoples’ posts you are actually stalking (by some accounts).
    LOL……smiley face!

  30. PRBucFan Says:

    Ya’ll have a goodnight.

  31. SacBucs Says:

    Punk Rock F#$k fan do you have a life..Somebody died and made your opinion religion! Nobody likes you or your opinion punk…

    I came off my acid trip to say that!

    Joe looks like we can cheer the dixie bitches lost it! No cigar!

  32. Andrew 1 Says:

    woot woot. so glad those stupid falcons lost. serves them right for how their fans act.

  33. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    Joe, does the SF win put Doug Martin in the Pro Bowl?

  34. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Joe, Excuse me for being off topic. But can someone please tell me why Frank Gore is so disrespected. Dude has been with the 9er’s doing the rough times. Losing year after year.

    And the finally make it to the big show. And not one reporter gives him the mic to speak his peace WTF.

  35. Saskbuco Says:

    Don’t know how the Garrett hiring will be, just remember him from hard Knocks ALL over Martellus Bennett, not sure if that would away him one way or another about tampa. Either way I can’t see him leaving the giants and some team will over pay him for one good year and many frustrated disappointing inconsistent ones.

  36. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Oops, they finally give him the mic…lol

  37. SacBucs Says:

    Somberobro..then these bums your trying to protect started stalking me long ago..Now im back to return the favor.

    Andrew 1 is a follower he started that bitch shh too.
    Along with: luther the loser, punk rock, pewter power, hawaii 50, miguel, have a rice day, and all the misfits that throw insults around.

    So mind your business!

  38. FlBoy84 Says:

    Glad to see Martin is making the Pro Bowl as well.

  39. Andrew 1 Says:

    @ SacBucs

    you dont have to worry about me “stalking” you any more as I will completely ignore you from now on. your to easy to diss and are not even worth it.

  40. Sam Says:

    Just to make it offical
    Joes watching the Pro Bowl thisyear
    3 Bucs made it in if im not mistaken?

  41. Pewter_Power Says:

    Anybody else seeing this great man to man coverage Talib is playing on Boldin? Just asking….

  42. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Yeah, we talking about Talib

  43. Andrew 1 Says:

    @ Pewter Power

    Yea, its to bad he could only do that for 1 quarter as he has been knocked of of the game with that infamous hamstring problem that he routinely had with us that caused him to miss a lot of time for us. The guy is just not reliable on or off the field. yea, sure, he will tease you into thinking hes great but that never lasts for very long. Im glad he is off our team.

  44. SacBucs Says:

    Antdrew all you did was prove my point..Your a post stalker! My post are for joe or real buc fans.

    Diss me..lmao..lil girls can’t diss me! Your throwin racial slurs like the kkk again ..sitting at home! What a coward… My turn!

    I told all you Maggotrons to ignore my post from the GATE! Insulting my writing is not going to make me angry.. I yaint from round cheer! You can have the Kings English I need Rosita Stone!

    Professor Keen Been!

  45. Bucky23 Says:

    Bucs need to sign Jarius Byrd to play free safety. Him and Barron would be pretty scary in the back end of our secondary. Love Ronde and he should be welcome back because he has deserved that. He isnt gong to be able to play forever and Jarius Byrd is a big time playmaker. 18 Int in 4 seasons.

  46. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    First of all, comparing anything that’s ever been said on this site to the KKK is ignorant and downplays the horrible actions of the KKK. I don’t know or care what race you are, but that statement is so stupid, you should truly be ashamed of yourself.

    And besides, no one is insulting you. You continually come on here insulting people, yet claim others are doing the same to you. Nice way to prove a point. You’re a complete joke, and nobody takes you or your empty threats even remotely serious. No one is scared of you and your Internet tough guy approach. We are all just laughing at you, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. That must drive you crazy, huh?

  47. SacBucs Says:

    Hawaii Five O its all because of you! First of all I can’t stand bully’s PERIOD. WHO THREATEN YOU OR ANYBODY.

    sounds like you will stand up in court for horrible people..
    Your the first one..

    Everybody heres the reason! This dude right here. He is the one that dru first blood!

  48. PRBucFan Says:

    @Hawaiian Buc

    Amen to that,

    I think it angers him that we don’t respond to him, at least I don’t acknowledge the kid anymore.

  49. SacBucs Says:

    I came on this site to put my two cents in the buc bank along with all the other fans..And the first time i wrote a post silver spoon showed up to give me a english lesson. Ya f,ing grammer cop. So its personal..Im clear if you wana kno my race..Hawaii! Tuff is what im not usso! I did some years in the dungeon if that will help.

    My kkk reference was a joke but i see it got to you..
    You are the internet thug professor.

    Get to me lol..I dont control things i let things flow. Im not a dictator.. free will rules.

  50. SacBucs Says:

    Respond to me! Don’t ever respond to me! I didnt ask for anybody to respond..Only Joe! He has and if he never says another thing I’m satisfied with my life! I don’t want people like you to respond.

    I have never tried to be apart of your farternity…The posters that have been here the longest think they have the right to attack the newcomers.. Thats what i have noticed!

    This site has been under my nose for years!
    If I wanted to talk to fans it would have to be fans like Big Mack Attack. He has been on for months.. Miguel too..

    Chip Kelly is going to take this league by storm..The eagles has the perfect players to duplicate what he had at oregon.
    Watch! How many of you know it alls will man up and apolgize to Guels. Nunya

    Heres why i said mackattack..I wanted marcellous bennet when he was released by dallas. I said to myself we shood scoop rolando mcclain when he was determental to the raiders with games left to play..Said put him in the middle..make mason play sam..6’3 backer who covers, tackles and intelligent..agreed

  51. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’m flabbergasted.

    I would like to thank my manager Phil and my agent Bob. I’d also like to thank Diana Ross and to all my fans, thank you. This is such an honor. I will treasure it for all time.

  52. HolyBuc Says:

    Gill Byrd is available, father of Jarius Byrd, was the assistant DB coach for the Bears last year. Could be interesting hire.

  53. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Oh no!!!!! I’m so scared! I’be been messing with a convict! Oh gosh, I better go into hiding.

    But to be completely honest, I may need a translator. You are speaking a dialect of stupid that I’m just not familiar with.

  54. Andrew 1 Says:

    @ Hawaiian

    lol.Hes so stupid he makes stupid people everywhere look like geniuses. lol

  55. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Watch out Andrew 1, he’s going to come back at us with another incomprehensible post that is going to leave us all both laughing and shaking our heads. That’ll learn us.

  56. J 2.0 Says:

    Why is everyone picking on SacBucs. The voices in his head are telling him that the “longtime posters” are ganging up on him. Can’t we all agree that this is just a new name and persona for an old poster?

    Back to the article, as I awake from a long day of daydrinking and football watching (at some unholy hour I might add) I read this and have to say Jackson is a breath of fresh air hear in Tampa. I hope he does some recruiting and helps bring in some more Buc Men.

  57. Eric Says:

    Kellen is a bitch. Seahawks brought him in when he had nothing. Worked with him on saving his knees but what happen?

    Oh not much a TE you can use a few plays a game wants like 8 million. And he refused to negotiate. And he has the balls to say “you did a vet wrong man”. Well case in point. Look at Sydney Rice. Seattle pays him alot of money. A lot. And he was injured for the better part of the last two years. He had a great season last year but suffered from knee injuries.

    Seattle could have said “yo lets renegotiate your contract..” But they did not. They let him go to an offsite facility and let him get some non surgical treatment. Now his market value is very diminished but did Seattle do him wrong? Hell no.

    Kellen Winslow is a bitch. A premadona and an under achiever.
