Slight Interest In Suh

March 3rd, 2015

ndamukong suhThe NFL world was set abuzz yesterday when it was learned the Lions and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh broke off contract talks and the All-Pro will test the free agent market.

Bucs fans well versed in fantasy football flipped out on Twitter thinking there is a real chance Suh could be playing alongside Gerald McCoy next year.

On several levels, as Joe stated yesterday, that’s as likely as Team Glazer holding a topless town hall meeting on Clearwater Beach to answer questions about British kickball and why the hell there aren’t digital replay boards at the Den of Depression.

Count the “Custodian of Canton,” eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune, among those who find this Suh to be poppycock.

Joe snooped around yesterday to see if the brushfire on Twitter about the Bucs and Suh was pure smoke or not. What Joe learned is that, yes, just like if a hot chick sat at a table next to you in a beachbar, there would be a degree of interest in Suh at One Buc Palace.

However, all the hoops the Bucs would have to jump through in order to make this happen, and all but blowing up the salary cap as a result, makes the move about as unlikely as Joe taking that same hot chick home without paying (an hourly rate).

Joe remains sure Suh won’t wear a Bucs jersey in an NFL game next season.

    just because you can make it fit under the salary cap does not make it a smart move. 200 million for 2 players that play the same position is just bad business and flat out stupid. Now if we could do a swap for Suh and send McCoy to Detroit that would be awesome. I am all for that. McCoy good person just not the guy I want leading my defense. I want attitude and heart not Mr. Rogers. Plus I am not sold McCoy can stay healthy over the long haul. he has missed a lot of games.

    they’d never cough up that much dough.

    but it would be nice. suh could knock em out, and mccoy could brush em off and say sorry

    man, that is so harsh but yet so accurate.

    Ndamukong Suh & Gerald McCoy = Henry Thomas & John Randle

    swap GMC for Suh lol Detroit let the guy go for nothing…..I top 3 pick in the draft and they got nothing for him, that means that pick didn’t work out and it was a waste my friend but you have nothing to say about that head coach. there is no tackle in the draft that’s going to replace suh for that team and they draft to high. so glad your not in the bucs front office because your brilliant gm moves only hurt the people here who have to read what you post

  6. tmaxcon Says:

    bucs4lyfe — dude relax that is not what i am saying. you totally took it out of context. all i was saying is I would gladly give them McCoy for Suh. I was not playing GM. But to address your inaccurate post Detroit getting McCoy in return totally blows your rational since he was picked just below suh. Suh is a better player than McCoy and more durable but to say nothing in return you would have to send them Glennon for it to be nothing.

  7. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Booger McFarland built in excuse is the reason why things didn’t workout for him in Tampa is because Him & Sapp played the same position.

    Not realizing that what Monte & Dungy was trying to reproduce was a tandem that reached HAVOC in the Ole’ Black Blue Henry Thomas & John Randle. Those two undersized tackles destroyed quarterbacks for years.

    The Concept was for everyone to meet up at the quarterback-the same would apply here. Most people forget the same system produced Brad Culpepper were he road the bench for two years in Minny before he came to Tampa. Where in 6yrs he produced 33 sacks.

    Website still does not work on mobile….

    That’s odd, considering Joe had about 22,000 pages viewed via mobile yesterday and a few thousand already this morning.–Joe

  9. bucs4lyfe Says:

    suh is better than McCoy based on what? the fact that he is about to enter free agency lol. I understand where I went wrong on your post until you said that nonsense……SUH is a bully like player that is strong and relentless yea I give you that but from a technical standpoint dude has nothing which is why he’s going into free agency. he’s not worth the money he will command and he cant do what McCoy can

  10. Chef Paul Says:

    Even if it was at all feasible, Suh is a walking suspension. It’s only a matter of time before he gets an entire season off. Aint we already sick of “the guy with a nickname that doesn’t deserve a nickname” getting suspended all the time?

    I think McDonald is the guy you leave him where he is and you force competition at the 2 defensive end spots… one gets the automatic start, smith and Johnson should still have to earn the start. no one on a 2-14 team should be given the start unless your the clear cut probowl players of the team. if we are going to go after a big name player devin mccourty would give us more bang for our buck than suh would

  14. Luther Says:

    Hot chick sits next to you…ohh and ahh under your breath but you don’t touch. Same situation here. Way too expensive and we have other needs.

  15. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    That Defense in Minny went from

    LDT Henry Thomas
    RDT Keith Millard


    LDT Henry Thomas
    RDT John Randle

    When you’ve got a combination like this on the inside-There’s literally no way you can double team them both and protect the outside.

  16. TeeBeeFan Says:

    One of the favorites to land Suh per the NFL Network last night was Oakland. He would fit like a glove there. A dark horse that was not mentioned last night would be Washington. They need DL help and have money to burn. As we all know, Dan Snyder is very good at burning money when it comes to his pet project, the Skins.

    Stop trying to make sense to joe on this issue. He’s lost his mind on this subject plus his head is up jameis “you no what” sad indeed

  18. Jeagan1999 Says:

    I’d rather see the Bucs spend their money on other priorities. While a Suh/GMC D-line is fun to think about, we got too many other holes to fill.

  19. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Both Dungy & Monte was a part of the following defenses

    • Michael Koenen $3,250,000

    Total: 14,000,000

  24. Barry Bryan Joel all agree Says:

    Defense would be top 5 by adding Suh. #IMO. Who would you rather have at 20 million a year, Revis or Reggie White….I mean Suh?

  25. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Both – Mankins & Dietrich-Smith
    • Could be replaced w/ draft picks (We have 8*)

    Koenen could be replaced by someone in the National Rugby League

  26. ddneast Says:

    If all you idiots want Suh so bad, the smart thing for the Bucs to is to have a trade for at least a No. 1 waiting in the wings for McCoy, sign Suh before trading MCCoy and then trading him.
    In essence the Bucs have gained an additional No. 1 pick by buying it.
    By some miracle, they are already well stocked at the position and have other more pressing needs elsewhere.

  27. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    No reason to talk tough bruh.

    You wouldn’t be calling folks idiots in a bar.

    Lol,-Y’all talk that sh*t on this blog— because yawl know you can without any repercussions.

    This sh*t is all in good fun-No reason to cross the line.
