Winslow On Opening Day?

June 8th, 2013

Joe’s still pissed at arguably the worst pass interference call — and most costly — in Bucs history.

Remember Kellen Winslow, Jr.?

He was the Buccaneer who pouted after a Preston Parker touchdown. He was the man who didn’t want his “toes on the line,” the man who preferred mixing CDs to working for the New Schiano Order, the man who quit the Patriots, the man who gave the Bucs two darn good season and one poor one, the man whose Bucs touchdown was stolen by game officials, which seriously changed Buccaneeers and NFL history, the guy who told Joe to stop calling him Sergeant.

Winslow is now heading to New York Jets camp, so reports

Joe sure hopes Winslow finds a way to land on the Jets roster and play on opening day against the Bucs. That would have some great potential entertainment value.

    Man I am with you Joe. I would love for him to be on their roster opening day. Just an added bonus.

  2. Couch Fan Says:

    I remember that play. We were robbed but we didnt disserve to go the playoffs that year. We were nowhere near as good as our record indicated.

  3. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Geno Smith and the Jets may just send us home losers, so we should not get too overconfident!
    Winslow can be a dangerous receiver, who will be on a mission.

    Couch fan,

    deserves had nothing to do with it…you can only play the teams on your schedule…the bottom line is we shouldv’e been in the playoffs that year…It pissis me of that Tampa Bay always seems to be on the tail end of those calls remember the Bert Emanuel catch/no catch SMH…I even saw a few of those this season as well…The Redskins game in particular made me sick to my stomach…It’s seems like every time we made a play on RG3 the refs negated it with a …The Mark Barron scoop/slam still erks me…

  5. Oahubuc Says:

    This will make opening day all the sweeter. The Jets are rapidly taking over for the Redskins as the NFL’s graveyard.

  6. BucKing 3 Says:

    Mr. Winslow meet Mr. Goldson…

  7. Couch Fan Says:


    I disagree. According to the rules we shouldn’t have been and we weren’t. Karma has a way of kicking us in the ass sometimes. We weren’t a playoff team. Though I do agree with you that we usually seem to draw the short straw most of the time.

  8. Bucfever40 Says:

    Chris@apple-If you really think a rookie QB and a has been Winslow is going to beat Reavis, Goldson, Banks, Barron, David, McCoy, Bowers & Claiborne, then you really have NO faith in this year’s revamped Bucs defense, there’s no way the Jets win this game, and I’m open for bets!

  9. Cody Says:

    My buddy (who actually is a Falcons fan) seems to think that the refs/league was trying to send Schiano a message because we went (Hulk Smash) on the Giants when they were trying to knell to end the game…He thinks and I agree that the refs cost us 2 or 3 games this year with questionable flags…but it is what it is; just another day in the life of a Bucs fan…That’s why I have respect for every Bucs fan out there cause it’s never been easy being on…we are classic underdogs…we’ll always have to knock out the champ cause we’ll never when by decision if you know what I mean…

  10. Cody Says:

    sorry for the typos guys; just woke up…I love rainy days….

  11. TimBucTwo@OneBucPalace Says:

    Mr. Winslow meet Mr. Barron ….epic!!!

  12. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    K2 is a perfect fit for the Jets. What an absolute circus that team is.

  13. Rrsrq Says:

    Can u see it, Give Me the Damn Ball II in NY, starring K2 and either Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith or whoever

  14. TrueBlue Says:

    I’m guessing that playing football pays more than disc jockey.

  15. TrueBlue Says:

    By the way, is it Win slow, or Wins low?

  16. Couch Fan Says:

    I think Sanchez would start crying if Winslow screamed at him for not getting him the ball

  17. Mean D Says:

    Winslow is finished. He won’t even make that crappy roster.

  18. Bobby Says:

    So Couch Fan, if our record in 2010 was 10-6 and you say we weren’t as good as our record indicates…could it be that last year we weren’t as bad as our record indicates or does that only work one way??

  19. Couch Fan Says:

    We were absolutely as bad as last year indicates. We were a on and off team. With a horrible pass defense. The 10-6 team got the benefit of coming from behind against a lot of bad teams. We would of got bitch slapped out of the first round. I’m sure you will disagree though and say we had a fantastic team.

  20. Joe Says:

    Well-played True Blue!

  21. Eric Says:

    The jets are a grown man team.

  22. Vincente Says:

    Yeah go to the jets so Barron can light yo ass up game 1 in Tampa!

  23. scubog Says:

    Now that’s a real Buccaneer fan. Thinking certain victories are not deserved but all defeats are. Wow, talk about lacking typical fan qualities. I’m truly amazed. I get it though. He’s not a football fan as his moniker clearly points out. He’s a fan of furniture to lay on in a prone position with full command of the flipper and little else in his life. Perhaps if you actually had been at that Detroit game you would have a different point of view of that bogus penalty.

  24. Tampa2 Says:

    Why do a lot of Mr. spaghetti stain on their t-shirt sports fans think everything is a conspiracy? Reminds me of the type of people that think the NBA is fixed. (because shooting 3’s and what not is such an easy thing to do, the players just manipulate when they make or miss them!) Or it”s always the refs fault. Yeah that’s it! Some people just seem so off the wall stupid, when I read some comments I want to punch myself in the face. But yet, I continue to read comment sections of articles so maybe I’m the dumb one.

  25. John Says:

    Fans, never count on a win before the game starts. Jets don’t look scary, but that’s the wrong mind set before you play. In the NFL, the worst team can win.

    As far as Winslow, who cares if is or is not with that team. This is just one of sixteen in the regular season. Just win, and leave the drama to the media.

    Drama can kill teams. My examples are the JETS. (Sorry, fireman ED, (NY fans desire more.)

  26. travis Says:

    I was at that game against the lions. When that flag popped out, everyone assumed it was on the defender for his blatant holding of winslows arms. Not for winslow breaking the hold for an amazing over the shoulder grab.

  27. Paul Says:

    I think when the Ref that threw his hat under Ogletree in the endzone was our payback.

  28. Couch Fan Says:


    Do you ever plan on enlightening us with some spirited debate or do you just always plan on coming in late and trying to bash people for giving there honest opinion?

    I have said nothing that makes me less of a fan you moron. Feel free to believe in fairy tales and rainbows and that our team is the best in the world. I live in reality and I will call it as I see it.

    Oh and btw if you bothered to read instead of just running your fat mouth, you would of seen I said that we were robbed on that play.

  29. Paul Says:

    We had an extra player to account for in 2010. Josh Freeman. He doesn’t run anymore so everyone can drop back now.

  30. Paul Says:

    That not a fan bs is just bs. Everyone here is a fan. Raging doesn’t make you not a fan. He’s prolly disappointed that we didn’t dominate. That’s how I feel. Close wins are all good, but I want us to destroy in every game or I’m disappointed. I’m talking, Sapp coming through, no helmet, warrior, smashing into Favre, jamming his finger on Sapp’s corn row. What’s wrong with that?

  31. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Winslow hurt his chances when he went to the press with complaints.

    Paul, I’m curious. What is the most exciting nfl game you have ever watched? Was it a blowout or did it come down to the wire.

    NFL fans like close games because it means it is competitive. As a team fan we always enjoy seeing our favorite team dominate. But the better games come with tough wins. So far as watching other teams play.

    Sure. I would love to have the Bucs destroy every team like a juggernaut. But realistically that will never happen. Ever. The best any fan can hope for is a good competitive game each week. Earning the wins against strong oponents.

  32. PRBucFan Says:

    “the man who gave the Bucs two darn good season”

    100% agree, I loved him as productive TE.

    He was tough and was going to go after the ball with physicality every time.

    Off the field, he kinda turned me off to being his fan

  33. scubog Says:

    Couch: Resorting to name-calling huh? Were you at the game or on your couch complaining that the game wasn’t on local TV? Plain and simple that was one of the worst calls I’d ever seen. As Travis pointed out, we all thought it was defensive pass interference. I read this site early in the mornings when the posts are already a mile long from the previous day. I only comment on the “fans” who think their wisdom is measured by the height of their criticism and rarely if ever take a positive spin. To say your favorite team didn’t deserve the few victories was a little much. The Freeman debate runs on adnauseam. No need to enter that fiasco. No one thinks everything is fairies and rainbows except Elton John, but it’s not all clouds either. Criticism is far more credible when every once in a while there is a little praise.
