collinsIt’s safe to say Bucs beat reporter Tom Krasniqi is no fan of Anthony Collins.

Krasniqi, who will debut a new weekday show with Ronnie Lane one week from today on WDAE-AM 620, gave readers a taste of his passion during a Bucs postgame show last night.

Joe heard this screaming, intense take and had to share.

“Speaking of awful. Oh, my God. Anthony Collins has to be the worst starting left tackle in the National Football League. He’s terrible,” Krasniqi bellowed. “Everson Griffen owned him [Sunday]. He steamrolled Anthony Collins. He looked like Chris freaking Doleman.

“And he’s lazy, doesn’t finish blocks, doesn’t play to the whistle. He’s lazy. And the problem, if you’re the Buccaneers, there’s nobody else behind him. So you’re stuck. This is the $30 million mistake you made. And he’s stealing right now from this organization. Stealing! The only thing missing from that transaction is a ski mask and a 45. Because it’s highway robbery at this point. He is killing this team at this point. Killing them. Worse than Kenyatta Walker.”

You can catch the full postgame tirade from TKras below. Joe suspects many Bucs fans will be shouting Hallelujah!

    It’s hard to disagree but I thought Collins was the one that Joe was saying was always the most emotional after a loss? How can you care that much and not finish your blocks?

    But I’m listening to the clip and it is nice to hear people angry, because I think most of us are angry. I know it’s not his style, but I can’t help but wish Lovie would yell and get into people’s faces when it’s deserved. Because the players aren’t responding right now.

  4. Richmondbucsfan Says:

    Yup noticed that yesterday as well. He gets assigned the best end rusher he has to be the best ol we have and he’s the worst guy! The lt from a&m looks solid!

  5. mac Says:

    I realize he doesn’t play tackle but this line as a whole is complete sh*t!

    BFD he called a black guy the “N” word… Ohhhhhhh nooooooo!!!

    Did you see Riley Coopers “N” word filled rant on YouTube? He somehow got a free pass but Richie gets the death penalty… Total PC BS…

    M. Johnson

    They’re all stealing relative to their play. And outside Goldson all acquired by Lovie and Licht. What a terrible indictment against them..

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We need to play Pamphile & Edwards……just put Collins on the bench….We have made some huge mistakes in FA thus far…..this is on Licht…..the only players that are just serviceable are Verner & Myers…..and barely.

    EDS, Johnson….the Mankins trade…..just not working out. I can understand one mistake but multiple errors…..Licht must be held accountable unless he is simply a figurehead…..then….its all on Lovie…

  8. bucsQcCity Says:

    Well yes he is and so are Goldson, EDS and Johnson.. It’s like Tampa has become the pre-retirement team: You go there, sign a hefty contract and just wait to collect all your guaranteed salary.

    Man I wish life was like that.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Move Dotson to LT & start anyone else at RT…..

  10. bucsQcCity Says:

    No Incognito please. This season is already a mess. The only player I’m willing to tolerate with an history is Winston.

  11. RastaMon Says:

    Point he blame where it belongs……L&L…..

  12. chocolatecvb Says:

    @Tampabaybucfan I second that! Move Dotson to LT. Time to start seeing what we have in Pamphile at RT. If we had a backup center I’d say bench EDS too. Might have been better to keep the old O-line at this stretch. I wonder if Donald Penn would’ve gotten handled off the edge all game like Collins did? Atrocious that guy is playing right now. Just horrid.

  13. phil Says:

    The biggest mistake was hiring Lovie and the second biggest mistake was putting him in charge of personal. He cut the best player on our team and the talk is about getting rid of more of our good players because we way to many good players on this team. The biggest problem this team has is Lovie and I don’t see it getting better until he is gone. I have no idea why anyone thought hiring Lovie was a good idea

  14. RastaMon Says:

    There is more than enough talent on this team to be an avewrage middle of the pack team……coaching void…FIRE LOVIE TODAY !

  15. flmike Says:

    It all starts and ends with Snuffy Smith…Fire his ass asap….

  16. Young buc Says:

    I miss big penn

  17. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I was with him until the Kenyatta Walker comparison. That is frankly hyperbole.
    I get it, we’re all peoed! But Kenyatta Walker.

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We are stuck with Lovie……all the calls for firing him are understandable….but will fall on deaf ears….Frasier will not be brought back…..Licht may be in trouble….We will have a new OC if Tedford can’t return…..
    All of these things will buy time for Lovie with the Glazers.

    Its time for the media to grow a pair…..they are letting Lovie push them around in press conferences…..like being cute with the QB situation or saying our running game was OK……BS!!! Lovie needs to be on a serious hot-seat with the media. The media are our representatives……sure we can speak with our wallets but the way the NFL is structured the owners can make money without high ticket sales.

  19. RastaMon Says:

    Lovie…needs to GO TODAY….what you see/have seen is all he’s got

    Lovie is in WAY over his head….I listened to his press conference yesterday and was underwhemled by his monotoned empty words…then by chance I listened to a long interview with #55 on all sorts of subject…a stark contrast in leadership and answering questions. Lovie is an empty suit that has been swept to this point in life by his association with the greatness of others. I don’t mean to be harsh…but that is what I see……

    I’m against firing Lovie because at one point we need to stop doing this. I’m willing to give 3 years to Lovie to get a playoff caliber team. I actually enjoyed that he did go for it on 4 and inches instead of booting a FG. Plus he lost its OC at the start of the season. Even bringing in someone wouldn’t have been much more productive this year. Right now we will either fire Warhop or replace 60-80% of the OLINE next year. Same with the DBs. Byrd admitted to have failed to coach them right but man our safeties are bad. Really bad. We have been a couple drops away of getting blown out again yesterday.

    I guess this is a rebuilding year

  21. RastaMon Says:

    I could give a flying F about the Glazers finacial comment to Lovie….I have seen and heard enough from Lovie to understand he simply can not deliver…time to move on….Joe Madden could finish out the year will a better record than Lovie….

  23. HawaiianBuc Says:


    You have no idea what got Incognito in trouble do you? It had nothing at all to do with the N word. It’s one thing to not know it, but quite another to rant about it as if you do. Google is your friend.

  24. ElioT Says:

    T-Kras rules!

    Collins needs to take all that money he’s stealing and get that FU*KING Parasitic twin of a MOLE!!!! removed from between his eyes and then GTFO of town!


    Thanks for NOTHING!


    GO Sucs!


  25. John McKillop Says:

    @Phil, I agree, no coach should have total control over personnel. Coaches coach and personnel people find the players the to fit the coaches system. I am originally from Chicago and can tell you from experience Lovie is a terrible talent evaluator, never had a good or even decent offensive line, the brand of football he coaches is not conducive to winning in todays NFL. As far as evaluating talent, you have to look no further than the trade he made for Gaines Adams when he coached the Bears. God rest his soul, but Gaines Adams didn’t do anything for the Bucs in three years, yet Lovie saw something in him. This is how Lovie is and he isn’t going to change.

  26. BucFan20 Says:

    I can’t help but look back at all the people that were happy we got Lovie. A real coach. How fast they turned. Again. Everyone knew when he blew up this OL and replaced it with the players he did major questions were asked. Like they were know for pass blocking only? Well turns out they can’t even do that. We knew these were not starters but STILL brought them in to start. So why is anyone surprised this is a mess on offense? And the Pro Bowl does not mean a damn thing. If it did LVD would have been there. So to claim you should have a great defense or offense because of Pro Bowl players is lame. This team is a mess and will be for a long time. So get use to it.

  27. biff barker Says:

    Congrats to TKras and Night Train on the new show. Enjoyed them together on1040.

    That said, what can break the cycle of losing here?

    The Glazers will be told that it is experience and continuity.

    That’s fine. But they did not factor competence into the equation.

  28. pick6 Says:

    so, sad, and this was lovie’s absolute best shot. he scouted the entire league for one year with no other distractions, and this is what he came up with.

  29. mac Says:

    @ Hawaiian

    Don’t really care… We need anyone who can play worth a shit and he still can for a very cap friendly price…

    Give him a chance.. He is a dick… I get it… But sometimes you need dicks to fuck both pussies and assholes… Have you ever seen Team America? Come on man!!!

    I agree with Ronde Barber “He does not deserve the NFL death penalty”…

    I hope your not a Mike Vick fan… After what that animal did…

  30. mac Says:

    @ Hawaiian

    I hope your not a Michael Vick fan after what that animal did to those dogs…

    Do you think what Incognito did matched the atrocities of Vick?

    Or that his words were any more idiotic then Riley Coopers?

    I agree with Ronda Barber “He does not deserve the death penalty”.

  31. mac Says:

    Ronde not Ronda…lol

  32. Another J Says:

    EDS, Collins, Mankins,Michael Johnson are all very expensive mistakes that can be traced back to L&L.

    How may more loses do we have to take before L&L fix the mess that is Marcus Arroyo?!

    Arroyo has to be the worst excuse for an offensive coordinator in the history of
    the NFL, He doesn’t do our crappy offensive line any justice with his beyond terrible play calling game in, and game out!

  33. HawaiianBuc Says:


    I’m not a Vick fan. I don’t even begin to see the comparison.

    Incognito is a locker room cancer. Everywhere he has been. He’s literally been kicked off of 3 teams since college! Do you know how hard that is to do? He’s just not that good of a football player to be worth it. If he were a great player, he would be playing. That’s plain and simple. Saying the N word had absolutely NOTHING to do with why he isn’t playing. No matter how much you want that to be the case, it just isn’t. But just keep on believing it.

  34. McBuc Says:

    Fools gold, I guess he was right after all. Lol.

  35. Bannor Says:

    What new show? Who are they replacing?

  36. Brandon Says:

    Said it before and I’ll say it again, he is more suited for RT. Move him to RT and Demar Dotson (who is far more suited for LT) to LT.

  37. ElioT Says:


  38. sho-nuff Says:

    two things you avoid in an athlete..fat which equates to lazy and stupid….this roster is loaded with both of these liabilities….

  39. Andres Says:

    Hahaha awesome. The Kenyatta walker comparison is brutal BRUTAL! The media is the fans way to hold these clowns accountable. You should try sticking up for us instead of trying to sell us your ASJ spin dood he’s not very good just admit it. Catching the ball sometimes and fumbling in the clutch are not the signs of a good TE. His blocking is disgusting right now as well. TE should know how to block right?

    I feel bad for the Glaziers they just got robbed for almost 100mil talk about a robbery by the 2 down wonder. The great Geraldini and his famous 3rd down disappearing act!

  40. cmurda Says:

    Unless Anthony Collins plays on offense, defense, and special teams, I’m not even going to hear him being pegged the goat. This team sucked in all 3 phases of football. How about stopping the Vikings on their final drive with the rookie at the helm. Was that AC’s fault too? Did he rip the ball out of ASJ’s hands?
