Hawk Radio Highlights

November 7th, 2014

Dashon-GoldsonThe most chill hour of radio in Bucs history was back on the WDAE-AM 620 airwaves last night, Total Access with Bucs safety Dashon Goldson and Ronnie Lane, aka Hawk Radio.

Again, the show felt like a couple of cats kickin’ it with some top-shelf brandy and talking football as they awaited a knock from classy ladies on their door.

Joe’s got the highlights:

*Hawk’s health isn’t there yet. He’s been doing extra running on his day off to get his wind back. But Hawk’s wants it clear he’s not making excuses. “Don’t get it twisted. I don’t feel right. I know I’m not right. But I’m going to get there. Please believe it.”

*Film don’t lie, says Hawk. “It’s just not going how it’s supposed to. And it shows week in and week out.”

*Defensive improvement is obvious, especially over the past two weeks, Hawk says. “We just gotta finish games at the end of the day. … That’s the part that’s been killing us, the finish part.”

*Major Wright is not as fast or physical as Mark Barron but smarts are his great strength.

*On the Browns’ game-winning touchdown Taylor Gabriel, Hawk said Alterraun Verner simply lost track of his man.

*As Joe wrote earlier, Hawk wasn’t on the same page when it came to Gerald McCoy calling out his teammates.

*Hawk said it took years to play as a team in San Francisco before things kicked in and they were in the Super Bowl.

*Hawk says Lovie is all business outside of cracking a joke here or there. Referring to Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco, Goldson said his old coach was a little more “amped up,” sometimes even coming into the locker com and playing a little defense in games of locker room basketball.

*A “show-and-tell” session at a Bucs position meeting featured Hawk bringing in some of his high school game film to impress his teammates.

*Hawk revealed “I cried” when he went to junior college in rural Kansas, a massive “culture change” for a kid who only lived in L.A. and occasionally visited family in New York City. He explained academics drove him to junior college, where he straightened out. “I was always in class, doing tutor sessions.”

*Mark Barron calling the Bucs’ defense “passive” for him as a safety was not a comment Hawk was down with. Hawk speculated Barron was used to such different approaches at Alabama and under Greg Schiano.

*Bucs have to stand tall Sunday against a division opponent: “They can’t come into our backyard, kicking our balls around jumping in our pool, you know what I’m saying,” Hawk said.

    Like an old school Cincinnati pimp sippin Cognac, sitting on a chair, chopping game surrounded by a cloud of Newport cigarette smoke and a bunch of bad bitche$! “Know what I’m talkin bout. “

    Well, since the season is halfway over, I sure hope you get in game shape sometime say around the 14th or 15th week, you know what I’m sayin.
    Just start making plays
    and earning your pay.
    Talk is cheap and
    yo plays been weak.
    It’s time to put up or shut up
    and when you tackle
    keep your head up.

    I like hawk seems like a cool guy. Wouldn’t mind smoking weed with him you know he be cheefin.

  8. Chef Paul Says:

    You’ve already had someone come into your house and take the remote and change the channel. I guess coming into your back yard and kicking your balls around, and jumping in your pool sounds like the next step.

  9. DooshLaRue Says:

    You are spot on Chef Paul.
    And the Hawk’s instinctual response to being dissed like tnat should be a drive by.
    Know what I’m sayin?
