Good-Bye, Trindon Holliday

October 31st, 2014


Last week, the Bucs were all jacked up about their new, accomplished, plucked-off-the-street returner, Trindon Holliday.

Now he’s gone.

In a flurry of bottom-of-the-roster moves today, the Bucs bounced Holliday (waived with a hamstring injury). It’s unclear whether it was the same bad hamstring he had with the Giants before they cut him earlier this season.

It looks like practice squad call-up wide receiver Marcus Thigpen could be the return man in Cleveland, though Joe suspects Bobby Rainey will get the call.

Greg Schiano spent most of 2012 searching for a reliable returner. It looks like Lovie Smith is doing the same dance.

    It’s amazing how much time this staff has spent dicking around with this position.

  3. bucs911 Says:

    Maybe the Bucs should cut a bunch of coach’s after the season too.

    SH*T SHOW!

    Go Sucs!


    Oh well…The search continues………


    They released Page the other day….

    And the Bucs didn’t want Devon Hester!!! Guess it really doesn’t make a difference because with the way they are telling Koenan to kick the ball high because our coverage teams are so terrible our punt returner is constantly around the 10 yard line anyway!!!

    Hey brandonbucsfan, if you were rally a fan you would know the Bucs I did want Hester, they were simply outbid by the Falcons.
    Some fan.

    LOL – That was funny HawaiianBuc.

    1 buc fan is right. Another swing and miss. Liar Smith sold it, we bought it and then bam. Joe at some point does the media just look at LOvie as talking out both sides of his mouth and not care anymore what he says? So call is sportsmanship but at least with coach rah and Schiano they gave real answers.

    did you ever see a guy rowing a boat with only 1 oar in the water and going in circles?
    somehow this reminds of that.

  16. Upthegut Says:

    Lovie – go sell used car on Leeman Bennets Lot!

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    At this point Lovie is just grasping at reaches. No treats, I think it’s all tricks.

  18. Another J Says:

    Lovie Smith fails again…

  19. willie d Says:

    I hope browns pick up Page and he kicks your asses…end of story, Too bad you have TJ fujakima or I would not follow this team at all. I feel sorry for you people in the Bay.

  20. Zam Says:

    Hester envy

  21. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Eric Page should never have lost the job. All the other positions of need, they just had to mess with one that was at least solid?

    If we end up with the #1 pick next year, watch Lovie spend it on a kick returner 😉

  22. willie d Says:

    he probably will be like Andrew Hawkins, go to Canada for a few and hopefully will get another chance. Your coach seems pretty smug and petty not giving last years starter a chance when he has had better stats than everyone who has returned the ball last year for the Bucs or this year in this situation(injuries and poor performance) is a slap in the face to EP and all other players should take notice.

  23. Depressedbucsfan Says:


    Yea we were outbid by the Falcons but I highly doubt we would have been if we would have just kept out old offensive line. Sh!t as bad as they were last year this O-line is making them out to be a group of hall of famers lmao. Of we didn’t spend the millions of bottoms of the barrel backup offensive linemen we could of had one of the most feared offense with actual treats. How f!cked up is it that we are not even half way through the season and we are already looking at should of could of situations and hoping for a worse record than Oakland to be able to nap Jameis Winston. Man how far the mighty have fallen over the years.

    No, thanks for the tip. Workaround: Just hit your home button then browser icon. Voila.

  27. DallasBuc Says:

    So Eric Page still not good enough for LovieDovie’s road show?

  28. Capt.Tim Says:

    Dang! We’ll never make the SuperBowl now!

  29. Willie D Says:

    EP was as stud at Toledo, he had a terrible injury his rookie year. He was a top tier return man last year with better stats than anybody that has returned a kick for the bucs this year and anybody that was in the league last year on this team. Lovie has blown hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to replace him with inferior players and wasted draft picks(sheppard and herron 8 catches between them). EP could replace both and return kicks. Maybe we could have more O-line or DBs, that would be great. I knew Holiday would be hurt, how did Lovie not? JOE JOE JOE please address this. just the handling of this situation is a microcosm of how lovie handles this whole team. JOE said many times how Page had great hands, could take a hit and looked like the class of the return competition during camp.

    Since we are a joke this year and never make any news on ESPN except for how terrible we are why not put Micheal Johnson back to return punts? At least it would liven things up, he could FINALLY earn some of those Glazer Millions he is getting for just showing up and it could be entertaining for fans. Not to mention the look on the other teams special players squad trying to tackle him.
