How Do The Bucs Stack Up?

April 30th, 2014

The Bucs sure have made this offseason go somewhat quickly, even if Joe has been waterboarded with mock drafts until he finally waved the white flag and circled the return of Jack Bauer and 24 next week on his calendar and not the draft.

The pollution, both digital and electronic, that these mockers have littered our life with is out of hand, and Joe is calling for the FCC to step in and put a moratorium on these things for the public well-being.

It is getting to the point that Joe thinks “mock” should be George Carlin’s eighth dirty word.

When a popular mocker at a large sports website tries to tell Joe he doesn’t care about accuracy, then Joe has no use for him and his, um, work. What else is he typing that is inaccurate or is written without regard for accuracy?

(Memo to mockers: If you don’t give a damn about accuracy and do mocks for “entertainment,” then at least do yourself a favor and have a disclaimer on your work. Otherwise, you are misleading people and, frankly, you look like a clown. This does not include Joe’s good friend Justin Pawlowski, who puts his heart and soul into mocks and Joe very much appreciates his work.)

In this BSPN video, former Bucs assistant coach Herm Edwards and Jim Basquil look at how the Bucs’ offseason stacks up against the rest of the teams in the NFC South.

    “That’s right…Derek Carr.”

    Talk about a huge reach. He’s not worthy of selecting in the top 10.

    This time of the year is all about speculations and smoke screens. Mock drafts are no different. When it comes to the draft even Joe speculates. Its entertainment. This is just a guessing game according to smoke signals…

    …By the way Connor Shaw is coming to Tampa.

    Watch out! Dat’sJoe’s boy! Gonna get banned from site…lol…just kidding Joe. Don’t ban me! Lol

    Won’t need Carr per Lovie McCown is a good QB that can win us a lot of games, Glennon is an EXCELLENT QB (cap for emphasis for the MG8 career backup/trade him for a 7th round faction), and Kafka is a good QB. Bucs have a franchise guy already

  6. Owlykat Says:

    Lovie is just pumping up Glennon so he can get a better draft choice when they trade him next Thursday just like we fatten up Turkeys for Thanksgiving. In talking about what they are looking for Lovie replied Athletic and speed. That certainly isn’t Glennon!

  7. jo_mama Says:

    We have the potential to get the best QB Available.

    Trade Our First Round Pick to the Patriots and get Ryan Mallett.

    He is the Best QB available and has worked on Bill Belicheck and Tom Brady for 3 years.

    This is the best move we can make.

  8. Bucfan#37 Says:

    Glennon looked good for a rookie, to me that much was clearly evident. I laugh at the geniuses who say otherwise. The mock drafts I ignored, except those by posters to this site.

    Carr is the best QB in this draft. If you don’t think so you don’t know QBs.

  10. GlenninGrad Says:

    While Glennon wasnt a spectacular rusher, Schiavo told him not to run. He had one or two rushes for fairly good yardage and was pretty decent throwing on the run imo.

  11. Tristan Berry Says:

    I do think Shiano’s poor organization was a hurdle Glennon struggled to overcome in his first season. A rookie shouldn’t have to face that situation, but many rookie QBs find themselves in exactly that situation all across the league every single year. Accordingly, I think Glennon is a much better quarterback than we saw last year. I also think McCown is a much better QB than Glennon right now. I also think we can get a quarterback in this draft that’ll be even better than McCown after a season or so of grooming by a top-notch staff.

    Where does that put Glennon? I have no idea. Glad it’s not my call.

  12. beeric Says:

    Glennon is going to be swept under the rug by 32 GMS if he’s not traded. That’s just reality.

  13. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol People say the stupidest things. Thats also reality.

  14. Bogiedr Says:

    Jo_mamma, Matt Cassel is the original Ryan Mallet … How did that work out? If not Johnny Football, then one of the three SEC qb’so should be the target. McCarron, Murray or Mettenburger.

    Pretty decent at throwing on the run? Sorry but your opinion is meaningless then. Did you watch a single game where he tried to run to his left? He couldn’t even run, let alone throw the ball! He just fell down. Or took a sack. Or both.

    I’m not anti-glennon, I say give the kid a chance, he played decent for a rookie, and sometimes made some sharp throws. But let’s not make s(p)it up. He was NOT good at throwing on the run.

    OT…but this is too funny…both mel kiper and tobin are wrong in the end…..and the Buccs were licking mel’s chops and drafted Trent Dilfer.
