“Champs On 3”

July 29th, 2013

It’s hard to imagine a Glory Days Bucs fan wouldn’t get a grin out of this NFL Films video.

Apparently caught up in the training camp spirit, NFL.com rolled out this video of a mike’d up Chucky at 2003 training camp.

Chris Simms seems to have had a much tougher road than Mike Glennon.

    This is gold! I can’t even imagine that the Raheem era practices were remotely close to this atmosphere and terminology.

  2. Bucfever40 Says:

    No doubt Drew, that gave me some serious goose bumps, coach Gruden knew what the hell he was doing, Raheem was a joke, what were the Glazers thinking!

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I don’t care if Chucky was lucky….I don’t care if it was Dungy’s team….I will be forever grateful for Jon Gruden & our precious SB Victory.
    Many teams don’t get there & when they do, they don’t win.
    When we got our chance….we tasted VICTORY.

    Anybody ever notices how close Schiano’s voice sounds like Grudens voice? To me they sound very similar. I’m tone deaf anyway.

    I’m with all of you… I don’t care how they got it done, I’m just glad they did. Provided me with the BEST experience of my life (and debt that took a while to pay off… lol). I will never forget that weekend in San Diego, the NFL Experience, and Qual-Comm Stadium that incredible Sunday. Thank you Buccaneers, thank you Jon Gruden, Sapp, Brooks, Barber, Lynch, Alstott, etc. etc. After all those years of ridicule from other fans, that one game made it all worthwhile.

    He went to the playoff with Chris Simms as QB. If that is not offensive genius, I don’t know what is.

  7. Joe Says:

    For those who didn’t notice, Raheem is in this video, and Shaun King gets praise from Gruden.

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Plus added 10 new players or someone once told me like 13 new players to the offense prior to the SB season. So it was part Dungy’s team and part Gruden’s. Also added my cousin a LS as that’s always important too. LOL Never realized how important a long snapper is until that season my cousin played, I watched every damn snap.

  9. Theodore Says:

    That’s why having a good RB is so important. Half the plays are simply “Martin run left”, “Martin run right”, and “Martin up the middle”. 🙂

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    @Theodore …yes and all this talk about Freeman this and Freeman that in the offseason. When all that matters is Dougie.

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Buc Realist

    We didn’t go to the playoffs with Chris Simms….this was a video from Summer 03…..after the Superbowl
    You need to brush up on you Buc facts…..
    Are you really a Buc fan or what?

    ***Please note that I didn’t call you an idiot like others***

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    ^^^ LOL

  13. Joe Says:

    @TampaBaybucfan – Hate to break it to you, but we did go to the playoffs with Chris Simms. Should have won the game, too.

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    We went 7-9 in 2003 Joe how did we make the playoffs?

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @Joe….not in ’03…..it wan’t until 05….

  16. Joe Says:

    Yes, but the_Buc_Realist never mentioned a year. Not sure why you assumed

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    video must be from 04 then?

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    Okay but in your article you said the video was from 03 and Simms was not even on the team yet.

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    Or was he 3rd string? Now I’m confused.

  20. Joe Says:

    Simms was drafted in 2003

  21. Buc1987 Says:

    Wait not 3rd string he was drafted in 04…thanks google. Joe your article is wrong.

  22. Vic Says:

    Poor Joe, dealing with so many readers who can’t read

  23. Joe Says:

    Jimminy Christmas, Simms was drafted in ’03

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    Okay 2003 then S.O.B. this is confusing. Your right and I’m wrong damn you google!

  25. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL @Jimminy Christmas…I say that all the time since Gruden used to say it.

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    Tequila and blogging do not mix well. I should stick to A.M. blogging only.

  27. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Joe….Buc Realist needs all the support he can get.

    Please note that I didn’t call him an idiot like others do.

    Nevertheless….I’m not quite sure Gruden is such an offensive genius.
    His superbowl defense scored 21 pts.

    Too bad he didn’t get to manage Shaun King

    “Shaun King, one of two Buc Quarterbacks that lost a NFC Championship Game when his defense gave up 11 or fewer points.”

  28. Buc1987 Says:

    Please note that I didn’t call him an idiot like others do.

    ^^^ please note that was what I was LOL’ing about

  29. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Buc 1987

    I’m so glad you noticed I didn’t call Buc Realist an idiot.

    I cut him some slack because its possible he just can’t help it…

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    Then let’s just call Gruden a motivation genuis then, because I never saw anything innovative in any of his offenses as a Bucs coach. May have been an offensive genuis for other teams just not ours.

  31. Herb Says:

    What ever happened to Simms and Galloway? Steve Duemig guaranteed that they would be superstars after they left the Buc’s. He constantly harped on the fact that Gruden was unfair to them.

  32. Joe Strummer Says:

    I am become death, destroyer of championship caliber football teams…
