Bucs: Davin Joseph Not Infected With MRSA

October 30th, 2013

Joe brought word earlier today of a report that all-around good guy and Bucs offensive guard Davin Joseph also was inflicted with the MRSA staph infection, which has permeated the Bucs locker room.

Well, this brought a swift, quick and adamant response from the Bucs.

In no uncertain terms, Joe was told by a highly trusted source at One Buc Palace that Joseph is not battling MRSA. The Bucs “strongly” deny this report and are “emphatic” there have been but three players who contracted MRSA. We all know who the three players were.

You may resume your colorful but misguided theories about how Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik is responsible for world hunger.

    If I’m Joseph, I’m blaming my non-performance on MRSA, crabs, headache, fever, foot fungus, bad breath, gum disease, and diarrhea.

    “…but I’ll be ready next year!”

    Duemig never makes things up. At all. There has been times he has gotten bad information, but he never makes things up. I only agree with him about 35% of the time when it comes to opinions, but Big Dog usually seeks out more than one source before running with a story.

    Like I said, sometimes he is fed bad information but he tries to double check things whenever possible. He is one of the few radio guys that does.

    Sadly, it’s just a ‘dump on the Bucs’ season in\for a variety of reasons.

    Truth is, if Schiano wasn’t stubborn and adaptable, we probably would have much better success in spite of what has happened thus far. As a coach, you have to adapt your schemes and team rules to the players.

    Unfortunately, he is not adaptable. If only the Glazer meeting they told him to adapt or else…

    Nobody expects us to beat the Seahawks, but stranger things happen.

    See how reliable unnamed sources are?
    Thinking some one got spanked 🙂

  6. THETRUTH Says:

    hmm …was big dog leak of Freeman medical issues, he does have sources to spread the word and best friends with Free..no one wants schaino out more than him, since schiano wont kiss his butt..

  7. Eric Says:

    He is only responsible for the hunger that churns in the Buccaneer Nation for a decent product.

    That is bordering on starvation after five lonnnnnnnnnnnnnng years.

    Especially after we were promised steak and have gotten some kind of moldy outdated spam.

    Let’s see how the offseason goes…….

    We shall see.

  9. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    I don’t know about world hunger, but, I do know what he isn’t responsible for: Responsibility.

    Even personnel is now being blamed on the coach.

    The Teflon Dom strikes again!!! 24-47 and counting.

  10. bucsfan13 Says:

    Duemig Strikes again! I agree with THETRUTH who says Duemig isn’t responsible for all the “leaks” just to submarine Schiano!

  11. bucsfan13 Says:


    Name another GM currently employed as a GM with a worse record? Please do tell!

  12. Joe Says:


    Jeff Ireland springs to mind. And he just received a contract extension.

  13. lightningbuc Says:

    Big Dog laid a big, steaming pile of poo-poo with this unsubstantiated nonsense.

  14. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Unless my math is off:

    Ireland – 41-46

    Dominick – 24-47

  15. Tim Says:

    Joe he is responsible for world hunger! Just look at him he ate everything!
    Oh crap he’s skinny, must be Sally Struthers fault.

  16. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    I did some research a few days ago and couldn’t find any GMs who had a similar win % and were still employed by that team.

    All had been fired except Buddy Nix, who retired (someone clarified the retirement for me).

    ^ Dominick is responsible for the last 6 paiful years of Buc Football. 24-47 is Dom’s responsibility.

    If Schiano is ousted, then Dominick should be packaged with him.

    Who is accountable for 24-47, not a 10 sack player since Simeon Rice, and failing on a Franchise QB? Our GM’s goose should be cooked before or at the same time as Schiano’s.

    It would be completely foolish to entrust the GM with another 6 years, 2 coaches, and 5 losing seasons.

    We are not even a completitive team right now. We are the “laughing stock” of the NFL, and Schiano is only the skin of the problem.

    Down goes the Rockstar, boom goes the dynamite.

  18. SCKelly22 Says:

    Lol Joe. Just remember this the next time that you get on someone for talking down big dog. I was listening yesterday when Big dog said, he knows for a fact that he has it. Really now……

    Almost makes Penn’s whining look substantiated for second.

    ^awesome! totally agree! well said!^

    “The mission is to continue building this team into a lasting contender and to bring championships back to the Tampa Bay area,” Dominik said.

    Mission not-accomplished.

    Mission total failure.

    Time to go.

  22. Eric Says:

    “Coach Schiano is a bright, meticulous teacher who knows how to get the most out of his players,” said Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik. “He built and ran a pro-style program at Rutgers, and he’s a defensive-minded coach whose teams have always been characterized by toughness and a physical style of play.”

    Wrong, wrong wrong………………………..time to go.

  23. Natenazty Says:

    I don’t understand how all the FACTS that have been put out by Bucs fans on these comment pages can ALL be generalized and catagorized as “misguided theories”. Just because you don’t agree with a piece of factual information does not mean it then becomes “theory”. I don’t like the fact that the earth is round. I want to think that it is flat. They need to stop writing that misguided round earth theory in those damn textbooks! Damn theorists!!! LOL/SMH

  24. ClassieFreddieBlassie Says:

    If the Glazers hope to recover any respectability from this mess, Dominick has to go. Two monumental failures at head coach, allowing the coaching staff to grow into a small army and an overall losing record with boatloads of talent should make the decision easier. Freeman had 4 years to prove himself and failed and was sent packing. With that rationale in mind, Dominick has had more than enough time (and spending money) to prove himself. Buh-Bye.

  25. sho-nuff Says:

    next excuse for why yet another high priced player sucks on this team….

  26. sho-nuff Says:

    be careful SC you’re in that cliques crib…..

  27. Ichangedmyname Says:

    All 28 posters in the mob are out for blood right around Halloween Joe! Be careful!

  28. SKelly Says:

    I’ll be careful. Joe can take a joke.

  29. Eric Says:

    Believing a GM is lousy who has a 24-47 record, with more losses coming, is hardly misguided.

    However, clinging to his status as a rock star in the face of monumental evidence to the contrary is.

  30. Greg Smithwick Says:

    Yeah, you know what? Here’s the thing: When PROFESSIONAL journalists (in print, TV, and radio) get fed bad information, you know what they do with it? NOTHING.

    Saying Duemig got “Fed bad info” does not even begin to excuse this. Where are the standards? If he were an ‘actual’ reporter or journalist, this could be grounds for firing.

  31. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    He only needs one 16-0 season to be 7 games under .500, and almost to Jeff Ireland’s level.

  32. Bobby Says:

    See…that’s why I take ‘anonymous sources’ with a grain of salt. So much of it is total BS.

  33. JS Says:

    “Unless my math is off:

    Ireland – 41-46

    Dominick – 24-47”

    oh snap

  34. BigMacAttack Says:

    The only illness Joseph has is Noblockitis. He is pretty much ate up with it.

  35. Joe Says:

    @GregSmithwick – The “grounds for firing” is a tough charge. In a newspaper environment, typically a reporter with a anonymous source story would have to run all details of the source past a couple of editors, and they would approve the story. … You seem to be assuming Duemig isn’t able to back up the information and the source isn’t credible.

  36. Greg Smithwick Says:

    Perhaps, Joe…But short of an editorial decision, what did he do to verify the information, himself?

    Firing is perhaps too strong…But there would definitely be accountability for a story running on unverified information.
