“Hawk Radio” Reveals Anthony Collins’ Fire

October 3rd, 2014

Joe loves “Hawk Radio,” aka Total Access with Dashon “Hawk” Goldson on the Buccaneers Radio Network.

Why? Because it’s not some sterile, washed out boring, vanilla, toe-the-company-line player or coach show.Hawk isn’t afraid to deliver, and host Ronnie Lane asks good questions. What a concept!

Last night, during the WDAE-AM 620 broadcast, Lane asked Hawk whether there was anything different about what was said in Saturday night team meeting before the thrilling Steelers comeback win.

Hawk said he didn’t want to touch on private team happenings but “I’m going to let you in “anyway.”

“There was some things said. One of our players, Anthony Collins came in, you know, I guess he was feeling some type of way about [the Atlanta game] and the team and what’s going on,” Hawk said. “And he said what he had to say, and it was true. He was telling guys, ‘you have to play out here and you’ve got to play with passion.'”

Hawk went on to say Collins shared experiences from his Bengals days and delivered the message that despite the road game, “we gotta bring our home fire to the end.”

” He kicked it off, man. He kicked if off Saturday night, came in Sunday and it just carried over.”

Joe has written before about how Collins appears to be one of the most emotional players on the team after a game — moved to tears after the Rams loss and jacked up in Pittsburgh.

If (big if) the Bucs season turns around with a win in New Orleans on Sunday, one possibly could trace the turning point to Collins’ team address.

    Nice jinx in the end there Joe…I know you said “if”.

  3. Buc1987 Says:

    And another thing…I think I can make Collins cry. Bring him to JBF and let me have go..

    Love it. Need guys playing with passion and bringing others along with them. It’s the single reason fans miss Sapp and idolize him despite some who have negative things to say about the guy (some deserved I suppose)….that infectious unbridled fire he put into everything. It was beautiful to watch. Saw flashes of the old gang tackling Bucs in Pittsburgh. Loved that pic of Bowers going airborne! Need more players with passion for the game like Sapp and Collins

  5. John Valenti Says:

    I love it! What the Bucs might lack in talent or depth, they can make up for with attitude and effort. Bucs D gotta put pressure on offenses and either create turnovers or atleast get off the field on 3rd downs.

  6. Gooberville Says:

    What? No way!! You mean you don’t want to give all the credit to Glennon? Shocking, I mean he did complete 50% of his passes.

  7. Andrew 1 Says:

    That’s good to hear, but he needs to play a lot better than he did it Pittsburgh. He did not have a very good game. I look for him to rebound in New Orleans though.

  8. Lunchbag AL Says:

    I get the feeling GMC and the gang (Dline) are going to bring it this week. Along with LD54….

    Our D is going to be the key this week.

    One of the biggest mysteries in the wasteland that is local sports radio is how in the hell does ronnie lane have a job? He’s just about the worst “sports” announcer in the market, and that’s saying a lot considering the lack of any intelligent commentary locally.

    What the status of the Hawk for Sundays game

  11. DWE Says:

    The game against Atlanta brought me to tears also.

  12. NJBucsFan Says:

    Think Prater comes in for a tryout?

  13. JT Says:

    Passion. Passion for my home team. Passion for the team I love with all my heart. I love seeing the team fired up playing their @sses off leaving it all on the field. I haven’t seen that from The Buccaneers in years. It feels good.

  14. kevin Says:

    I LOVE IT!!!!! LOVE THE FIRE MAN….BEST KIND IF PLAYER TO HAVE OTGER THAN SKILL SET. Someone emotional that gets angry….gets fired up. Bout time man this is refreshing to read about!!!

  15. Flmike Says:

    Prather, no, there is something deeper going on with him, you just don’t let a probowl kicker loose who is not only good from 50 & out, but very good, and rely on a rookie, not when you have the cap space.

    What the status of the Hawk for Sundays game

    Evans and Goldson are out.
    Barron, Foster, McCoy, ASJ and Michael Johnson are questionable.

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    Ronnie Lane has been on the radio since, well Adam and Eve.

  18. phattitudes Says:

    Nice. I like it Joe.

  19. ddnesst Says:

    Ronnie has a great radio voice. Should probably try doing some Barry White. Nice to see we have someone with some fire in his belly on the offensive line. Perhaps there is hope that Mankins and Collins can shape this line up.
    Running against New Orleans and gashing them like Dallas did would be a step in the right direction.
    On to New Orleans.

  20. MigMac Says:

    Great write up Joe. We all need to be fired up. Only thing I didn’t like was the low blows by some dorks, Gooberville your name says it all.
