Bowers Still Not Practicing

August 26th, 2014
Da'Quan Bowers hasn't played football in 2 1/2 weeks after injuring his groin. Lovie  Smith said Bowers missed practice again today.

Da’Quan Bowers hasn’t played football in 2 1/2 weeks after injuring his groin. Lovie Smith said Bowers missed practice today.

Joe’s really getting sick of writing about Da’Quan Bowers doing nothing on the field. If he even makes the final roster, it’ll be surprising if he sees the field.

Keep in mind the Bucs have a firm, three-man rotation at defensive tackle, and Lovie Smith already figured out Bowers isn’t much of a defensive end.

    Any word on the final two cuts?

  2. Bucs Says:

    So joe has time to waste to write a paragraph about a person that’s not practicing. Your obviously not tired of it cause you wasted time writing nothing.

    @DHutch Danny Gorrer just tweeted out “it’s been real Tampa” so sounds like he is one of them. I liked him but he was never healthy

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Leave Bowers alone….he is the designated player to pick on Richie!!!

  5. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Damn, some people really just love to complain. Now people are actually resorting to criticizing the creator of the site for not writing long enough articles. Wow, some people really need help.

    Not looking good for DQ. Gholston can come inside in pass situations. Outside they will have English and Means.

    @Hawaiian Buc

    Stop riding! It was a nothing article about nothing. I have an opinion… right. He could have tweeted that lil info. Some people do need help…. you. Plus, the comment was for Joe… not for you to respond. Have a good one.

  8. Bucs Fan Says:

    Plus I love the site….that’s why I visit several times during the day and night. I can always count on Joe to provide the latest and the greatest. Plus I love the insight….not always one that I agree with but hey that’s life.

    Just cut this fool already!!

    Bowers is practicing what he does best……..

    Poor Joe.
    Bad day? They didn’t cut Bowers, and may still sign Incognito!
    I doubt it, since they have traded for two guards- but meybe . .
    And you know Rachael is married- right?

  12. Bob Says:

    Trade bait?

    @ Capt.Tim, Back from Davie Jones’s Locker.
    That’s just great! Beat a man when he’s down. Now we’re going to have to have a suicide watch for Joe.

    Bucs Fan-
    Hawaiian Buc is right, if you don’t like it go to another site and complain but the whole approach behind this site is to be outside the norm and non traditional.

    If it’s one sentence then who cares! But no one is making him or others come here – us long timers support the site and enjoy giving Joe a hard enough time but to criticize for what makes this site a demand is just moot.

    Find another complaint source not our site!

  15. Architek Says:

    Now back to business –

    Bowers will be gone soon, hope he’s got some music ready. As a matter of fact how can people complain about Freeing Rich but not utter a word about mistro?

    Bowers has and will not do anything this season. Based on his track record this is a wasted slot, I would take a risk on Free Rich rather than wasting time on Mistro!

  16. Capt.Tim, Back from Davie Jones's Locker Says:

    Hawk- (sigh) guess we better stake out the bridges!!
    I’ll take the Gandy.
    I dunno though- one more ” I hate Ritchie Incognito, cause he made a sissy Black guy Cry!” And , at best, he’s on his own.

    Worst Case, I roll out the red carpet, to the jumper station!
    Geez Joe, we All get it- you want to appear to be sensitive to issues like this.
    The problem you’ve ran into, is the most of us think Matin was a whimp, and Incognito hasn’t done anything wrong.

    But if anyone ask- we’ll all tell’em that Joe is one socially conscious dude!

  17. Capt.Tim, Back from Davie Jones's Locker Says:

    Bowers has pass rushing speed. It gives him a punchers chance if making the squad.

  18. Tackleblockwin Says:

    If Bowers gets cut I can see the Cowboys trying to get him.

  19. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Stop whining like a little girl then! Just like you, I can comment whenever the hell I want to. You whine like my 10 year old daughter. Wahh wahhh wahhh!!!! Doesn’t all the whining ever get old?

  20. Mac Says:

    Adios Bowers… now that Mark Dominik is gone there is no one left to protect you… one more Dominik draft pick down the toilet…FLUSH….

    I am glad we have a real GM now…

    Go Bucs!!!

  21. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Capt. Tim,

    As I’ve said, I don’t have a huge problem with the incident in Miami. However, he was out of line if you actually read the report. Yes, Martin may be a bit soft, but by anyone’s standards Incognito went too far. Yes the coaches asked him to toughen him up, but again, he went too far. Just because someone asks you to do something doesn’t mean there’s no boundaries. There are boundaries, and he crossed them. You can be insensitive to these boundaries all you want, but you weren’t there. It’s easy to say that when you aren’t the one getting harassed.

    The issues that I have with Incognito are due to his long history of disgusting behavior. I’m going to assume you don’t have a daughter, because I can’t imagine any father being okay with that. To say he hasn’t done anything wrong is despicable.

  22. mtm Says:

    The same issues every year with Bowers rinse and repeat.

  23. Bucs Says:

    @Architek and Hawaiian.

    I’ve around these parts longer than you think. My original comment was to joe so blow off!!! And for the little girl comment….have more respect for others then to start calling names. Being tough behind your comments mean nothing. Saying that to me in person would be different. That’s a coward move. So I’ll leave you both with this. GO BUCS. LOL. SMH

  24. Greg Says:

    Watch it Tim, the same PC Nazis will be coming after you next if you keep posting those crazy posts that will upset Obama’s new social order!

  25. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    I said you whined like a little girl. And if you whined like that in my face, I would say the exact same thing. I went to school with a bunch of Samoans, so ‘aint nothing you could do to me that hasn’t already been done. I can promise you that much tough guy.

  26. Capt.Tim,Back from Davie Jones's locker Says:

    Greg- that is an honest concern, in the world we live in.

  27. Jim Walker Says:

    Can anyone explain how Bowers makes more money than Lavonte David?
