Love Is In The Air

Bucs fans are hugging their bedtime teddy bears firmly these days as the Bucs are reworking their roster like a local Hooters replacing the help after a May college graduation.

New defensive backs, new offensive linemen, a new quarterback, new defensive lineman, it is an incredible whirlwind of activity at One Bucs Palace short of a cheerleaders practice.

Bucs fans are so giddy, the only people irked are the Josh McCown Deniers.

Count Adam Schein among those throwing month-late Valentines. He penned his latest piece for blowing kisses to Bucs general manager Jason Licht.

LOVE: Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut Revis … sign Alterraun Verner, Michael Johnson and Josh McCown

Lovie Smith was never paying Revis $16 million a season — it didn’t fit his system. Also, Lovie wasn’t the one who traded for Revis in the first place, so cutting him was a no brainer. Tampa Bay smartly replaced him with my guy Alterraun Verner, who fits like a glove. Michael Johnson is another defender in the Lovie mold — a strong run stuffer and pass rusher on the edge.

And Lovie wanted a veteran quarterback to lead a group that he believes is ready to win now. I’m a noted Mike Glennon fan, but again, he was brought in by the old regime. Josh McCown is logical, and the experienced signal-caller played great for Chicago a year ago.

Right now in the middle of March where most people have green beer on their minds and most of the country is hoping for the end to an seemingly unending winter, it’s easy to get worked up for the moves the Bucs have made.

How they pan out, we won’t know for a good six months.

    Its not that the fans know this roster is playoffs calibur. Its that we knew the old roster did not fit, work, and played well together

    Fix this mess Lovie, and Be a Legend!!!

    There is still a long way to go until this is over…..sit back….relax and enjoy the show!!!

    Better fix the O line and add some speed @ WR or the offense will be no better than last year. As you noted many times before we still have the 4th best QB in the division. Not sold that McCown is much of an upgrade @ QB just someone Lovie was comfortable with. BTW why haven’t we heard from Tedford ???

    Joe you need to relax with your love of Beer, have love for your Liver instead, it probably needs a rest.

    Dietrich-Smith and Sanders would round out this free agency nicely for us and leave us with no gaping holes prior to the draft. That’s what I’m talking about. Dominik & Schiano should take notes on how it’s done, in case they ever get NFL jobs again.

    Bucs release Donald Penn according to Bleacher Report

    Joe –
    It appears you are on the fence about the decisive moves of our new leadership. Let me say this, it’s good to cautiously optimistic but by golly how about some excitement or hope for a better team.

    We have been bad for so long and it’s just outright sad!

    Here’s to hope for winning – Joe I promise if we win more your site won’t degrade!

  9. Kirk Says:

    No news from Joe that Penn has been released?

  10. A Corey Says:

    After cutting Penn this afternoon how much money are we under the cap?

  11. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Film must have shown Lovie and Licht etc, how bad we truly sucked, because they have almost totally just rebuilt our team.
    Now, with a few choice players in this years draft, we can become respectable again!
    I am excited!

  12. MadMax Says:

    yup, Penn is gone
