“Shockwaves Throughout The NFC South”

April 23rd, 2013

shaun king PFTFormer Bucs quarterback Shaun King recently called for rockstar general manager Mark Dominik to be relieved of his personnel duties. However, yesterday King praised the totality of the Darrelle Revis trade for the Bucs, though he said the move for Revis is “not the ideal way to build a championship team that’s going to be consistent over a long period of time.”

King, one of three quarterbacks to lead the Bucs to the NFC Championship game, said this is a true “win-now” move for the Bucs and he’s felt the “shockwaves throughout the NFC South” via his national work for NBC Sports Network.

Joe will bring an intriguing draft nugget later from Kings’ appearance on WDAE-AM 620. But you’re welcome to listen to his entire interview below.

    Shaun King the hyperbole machine is at it again. Yawn.

  2. Corey Says:

    Why must you continually refer to him as “one of three quarterbacks to lead the Bucs to the NFC Championship game”? Shaun King didn’t lead the team anymore than Martin Grammatica did. He’s a media hack that makes his mark with inflammatory comments.

    Drives me crazy!

    When I look at his face all I see is a box of donuts.

  4. OAR Says:

    More like Shaun “baker’s dozen” King is “one of the two quarterbacks not able to lead the Bucs with number 1 defenses past the NFC Championship game”!!

    Joe? Please, at the very least, acknowledge that King obviously says the most controversial things possible to get attention. His opinion is not respected by anybody. I understand he generates page views and long comment sections (which are also page views) but he really has no credibility. He was simply a “part” of a team that went to one of three NFC Championship games for the Bucs.

    You don’t trot out Shelton Quarles or Derrick Brooks as “one of three middle/outside linebackers to lead the Bucs to the NFC Championship games” so King shouldn’t get that treatment either.

    I normally approve of your nicknames and I think they are entertaining but calling Shaun King a QB that lead the Bucs to anything is simply slapping that amazing defense in the face.

    I guess I just have to ask why you feel the need to roll out that line every time he is mentioned because I just don’t understand it. It obviously drives every single one of your readers nuts. There is literally no one that agrees with that statement. (Other than maybe the almighty Shaun King himself.)

    Why Joe? It is your blog and you don’t need our permission to do as you please (or to explain yourself) but I really just want to know. I am not trying to call you out or troll. I just want to know. (As I am sure others would as well.)

    Dayum that guy eats ALOT !

    King!!! plz talk with your mouth not with your butt. Everything came out from his mouth was BS.

  8. Youpeoplearesodumb Says:

    Not to mention that fatso started only 5 games that year. Trent started 10 before he got hurt and Eric Zier started one. That was Trent’s team to borrow a line from all those Gruden haters who say it was Dungy’s team

    The only shockwaves are the ones created when King gets out of his car and his feet hit the floor. The move to grab Revis was worth every penny. Just look at all the wasted picks we have had in the first two rounds over the last 5 years or so. If Revis is half the player he used to be, we will be much better defensively. Our entire defense from d lineman to linebackers to db’s will benefit from his ability to shut down the opposition’s best receiver. Go Bucs!

  10. RCH Says:

    Shaun King one of three quarterbacks to only play six games in the Bucs regular season and was not able to put up 12 points with the number one defense to get past the NFC Championship game.

    Quote the moron, evermore!

    Joe is having fun with us. Next time don’t respond to any mention of King’s name. Nobody! Then Joe will stop. He knows King has zero fans or followers. This is ire invocation at its best.


  12. Brain Says:

    I actually agree with what he’s saying. Trading for Revis wasn’t an ideal move because of the cap hit and loss of the additional 3rd round pick (as compared to drafting the star yourself with your 1st rounder). However, we don’t live in a perfect world and we were in desperate need of corners, so the move makes perfect sense. Turning down Revis would’ve been like turning down Calvin Johnson for what amounted to Gaines Adams, Arron Sears and Sabby the Goat (yes that apparently happened).

    Seems to me like King supports the move but is still trying to take a critical angle, which is responsible sports analysis imo. I usually find his stuff worthless though.

    Shaun McBurgerKing: “You wanna build a championship team? Draft players with rediculously small hands!”

    Hell, the only thing this stuffed nose manatee can build is the perfect cheeseburger. His secret: small hands…

  14. tonytwocents Says:

    one of these days, we’re gonna hear a soundbyte from King with a speaker in the background asking if he “wants that supersized?”. with king saying, “hold on Ron, hell yeah I want want that supersized! but back to the Revis trade….”

    Sean King is a narcissistic jerk.
