Joe Talks Coordinator Blues, Sticky Balls, Motivation, “Just Lose, Baby,” Lovie’s Future & More

December 9th, 2014

joe_mug_shotIt was time again for the popular “JoeBucsFan Hour,” when Joe dives into the cauldron with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620.

Whoa! There was no lack of fireworks this evening.

    Joe, your hilarious writing style is the only thing that keeps me watching bucs games in the abyss of a season we have found ourselves in. Team glazer needs to hire you as PR.

  2. Jim Says:

    Mike Evans is my only reason for watching.

    Be considered a loser after this comment….

    ” “If you’re going to lose, you have to lose because you can’t be in the middle of the pack. You either have to be great or you have to be bad to get a good pick.”

    @CS – Team Glazer knows how to find Joe. Of course, Joe only works for top dollar and access to the ladies that just missed making the cheerleading squad.

    Mark Cuban

    ” “The question I don’t think anybody has asked is, why don’t they pull a David Robinson and try to get Tim Duncan?” Cuban asked yesterday, alluding to the fact that the San Antonio Spurs once sat Robinson for a whole season with nagging back and foot injuries and ended up landing the No. 1 pick in the draft as a result of it. “We already specialize in a race to the bottom. More participants won’t change anything. They’re all high-profile participants.”

  6. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Is it really that bad of an idea to set the organization up for the long term by drafting another star and give Mike Evans, Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David even more help than they already have?

    At this point we’ve got all the leverage to right this ship.

    Don’t blow it!!!

  7. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    Thanks for posting the chat Joe, man I really think the Big Dog is happier when the Bucs are losing, gives him more to rile the fans up with and makes for better radio, but good show nonetheless. Big Dog is right about the Mariota/Winston debate though; the trust issue with Winston is gonna factor big. I think Big Dog a bit off the mark on already planning the 1st pick being Tampa’s; he forgets that the Titans could have worse strength of schedule and could tank as well as the Bucs and its not guaranteed the Bucs go 3-13 and muck up all the #1 plans especially with Anderson starting for the Bucs….. Nice dig at the end concerning Dilfer by y’all; I always wonder why Stevie hates the guy so much dating all the way back to the Creamsicle days; perhaps bad day at the links, Dilfer is a zero handicap….. Dilfer likes Winston as well, interesting…..

  8. SteveK Says:


    One should never approach a game to lose, but we should be playing the young guys.

  9. Todd Says:

    Just lose baby!!!

  10. Dave Pear Says:

    You’re quoting two Basketball guys where one superstar can increase your odds of winning exponentially.
    Football is a different beast. Ask Dan Marino.

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    It’s not where you pick…it’s who you pick!!!

    Hoping my team loses is just not in my DNA….and I’ve seen every single game since the beginning…..
    Sure I want Mariota or even Winston and I don’t want to trade up to get them….

    But….I want to beat the stinking Panthers and knock them out of the playoffs.

    So, I root fo the Jags, Jets, Raiders…..and next week I root for the Jags, Titans, Raiders & Redskins…

  12. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Welp we all know where I stand at this point in the season as far as tanking it. No need to rehash.

  13. DallasBuc Says:

    To hear this guy make excuses for McCown and Lovie makes my ears bleed.

    “As far as that’s concerned”

    Priceless. I like the Joes more if this is a real post.

  15. Jimbo Says:

    The Orlando Magic have been tanking games for 2 years hoping for high lottery pick. Although they haven’t gotten the Lebron James type player they have learned how to lose and be able to tell people they are trying to play the best players and getting away with it. Bucs need to play the “young guys” for “experience and evaluation purposes” the rest of the year. Then they need to take the certain first pick in the draft and get a franchise QB and hope Lovie can coach him.

  16. oldfart44 Says:

    Lee and Steve. Be aware that motivation is only one of many traits that a good coach elicits.

    Is it not possible that any coach might have some good traits but not all of them.

    Have you two ever coached? Played football? Just asking.

    Both. Of course motivation is only one element, but it goes for any manager of people/employees.–Joe

    Always enjoy listening to you on the radio but just wishes it wasn’t with Duemig. The guy has personal vendettas with people and spouts innuendo which makes him horribly unprofessional.
    The most laughable theory he had was that Freeman was ruined by Schiano and that the head coach released the info to the media that he was in the NFL’s drug program.
    Even now, when it has become pretty apparent to everyone that it was someone in Freeman’s camp who released the information so he would get released so he could sign with another team, he won’t admit that he was wrong.
