Frazier Delivers Decisive Love

November 24th, 2014

leslie frazier 0603Joe always finds quick reactions telling.

So it’s worth sharing Leslie Frazier’s thoughts on the Tampa Bay secondary tonight on the Buccaneers Radio Network, via WDAE-AM 620.

Asked by Total Access host TJ Rives to comment on the defensive backfield, the Bucs’ mild-mannered defensive coordinator went right to Johnthan Banks love.

Frazier said Banks is “the guy who’s really stepped up.” He went on to say the second-year man has been a catalyst for growth.

“He’s the guy who has really helped our secondary to improve. To see the maturation of Johnthan within this system kind of mirrors” [the improvement of the entire defense,]” Frazier said.

Keep in mind Frazier was an excellent Bears cornerback with 20 interceptions in just 49 starts. At 26 years old, his career was ended by an injury in the 1986 Super Bowl. He knows what he’s looking at.

Another Dominik-Schiano man, 24-year-old safety Bradley McDougald, was the other player singled out by Frazier.

Joe loves seeing young guys leading the charge on the Bucs’ defensive improvement. Solid defensive play through the final five games would at least help close the open wound of this season.

    Leslie seems like a really nice guy. Having said that, in my best Howard Cosell impersonation….
    Down goes Frazier!

    Watched Lovies PC today and I can’t believe he’s still talking playoffs.

    I agree, when your win percentage is less than .333, you need to STFU and try to win a damn game.

    I wish the next time I hear Lovie talk playoffs, that Jim Mora Sr. pops out and says, “playoffs!!! You kidding me!?”

    Smh it’s a Sucs life

    He does we just don’t see it. Plus most of us do that exact impression when we hear it. I’m sure the report who asked the question responded in the same manner. Playoffs? You talking about playoffs?!?

  5. Patrickbucs Says:

    Is he really still talking playoffs? That should make everyone feel that much worse. If we were a 500 team we would actually make the playoffs. I wish someone in the media would tell him to drop it.

  6. DB55 Says:


    It up on

    Not only is he still talking about the playoffs but does so in the most arrogant condescending manner possible. Like how dare you suggest we are out of the playoffs.


  7. SteveK Says:

    Lol, 2-9.


    How about a single win, and then another one in a row?

    Gotta be kidding me,
    C’mon Joe, please post about the Lovie says playoff hog wash.

    Machine was roasted far worse for far less.

    Machine= Schiano

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson react to Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel’s reported involvment in a fight and how it impact’s his future.

    go johnny football!

  10. Patrickbucs Says:

    1) Lovie show form of dignity and stop talking about the f$$in playoffs, it’s embarrassing.

    2) what ever Shefter has to say, tuck that away in a deep garbage dump.

    McDougald was brilliant in run defense yesterday.

  12. Please Says:

    Saints suck, Bucs will STILL be 2 games out of first place… which is closer to the playoffs than nearly every “in the hunt” team the networks always show. So, yeah, he SHOULD be still talking playoffs.
