Titans Watch: 36 More Days

August 8th, 2015

Gerald McCoy offered a glimpse into his preparation.

Sure, the Bucs’ offense is breaking its collective butt to find an identity with a new offensive coordinator, a new system and a 21-year-old rookie quarterback.

But life is different among the guys wearing the red training camp jerseys.

Those are the members of the Bucs defense, and Joe’s talked Tennessee Titans with a handful of them. For those emerging from a deep hibernation, Tampa Bay opens the regular season at home against Tennessee and Marcus Mariota on Sept. 13.

The Titans have a decent offensive line, and Joe asked Gerald McCoy when he’ll begin — or began — studying the intricacies of those opponents.

“When the schedule was released,” McCoy said Thursday. “That’s when you start studying. You can never start too early.”

Now that’s the right answer, and one that should fire up any Buccaneers fan.

But It’s not the answer Joe got from every defensive player. No, not every guy is firing up his iPad or Surface to watch game film when the schedule comes out in April. And that’s ok.

    John McNulty is the Titans QB Coach,Jameis Winston will be more advanced as a passer this season than Marioita. I think the Bucs defense will frustrate Mariota, and Jameis will have his way with the Titans Defense.The Bucs will win this game and go on and have a good season.

  2. Jody Says:

    I’ll put money on all you Winston lovers. He will suck bad in NFL. Cost us games and set franchise back 5yrs. $500 to any takers he loses against titans?

  3. Jody Says:

  8. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’m still trying to decipher that response.

  9. Fsuking Says:

    Long live Jameis! 20 years, 20 undefeated seasons, 20 Super Bowl MVP’s, only players to be inducted into the hall of fame while still a player! I don’t feel ridiculous saying that on this comment board cause Jody is on here too

  10. Stanglassman Says:

    I would love to take you up on that Judy. 500 straight up to win. I’ll take Winston and the Bucs all day. I’ll double it that Winston will be the better QB 3 years from now.

  11. Stanglassman Says:

    Looks like you have 3 takers on that bet so far. I want confirmation on this if you are taking it or backing down.

  12. John McKillop Says:

    @Stanglassman Jody seemed pretty cocky until the offers to take him up on the bet came in. Put up or shut up Jody!

  13. Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Would love to know what other username Jody goes under? Is barry back? Realist?

  14. Willy D Buc Says:

    Where’d Jody go….?

  15. Buccfan37 Says:

    Jody doesn’t have two nickels to rub together.

  16. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    I will bet $50 that Jody won’t pay his bets when he loses. Any takers?

  17. cmurda Says:

    Hey, where did Jody troll go?

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    Jody…is robert 9 by the way.

    Robert…someone is taking you up on that bet and you disappear. I’d take that bet in a flat hot second if I could trust someone as yourself to pay up. Which I can’t.

  19. bucnuts Says:

    Hell No!! Earth to Jody??

  20. JabooBuc Says:

    Wow! I guess that’s the way to get him to shut up. Take his bet and he’s outta here. I suspect there’s a whole host of us that would be willing to take that bet Jody.

  21. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    D@$! Where he at,man that’s a sweet lick.

  22. Mo Downs Says:

    While contrary opinions can often stimulate interesting discussions, civility should also be seen as a sign of respect for your parents or a cry for help because of the cognitive dissonance you suffer.

    Employing a self-filter can be helpful when engaging in social intercourse with strangers. Consider it to be a sign of maturity rather than an act by others to suppress your right to express your most vile thoughts.

  23. Buc1987 Says:

    I just looked at my Jameis jersey and smiled.

  24. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    “hole everyday”😁now I like dat.

  25. Dave Pear Says:

    Are you a chick or a dude?
    If you’re a chick..then you’ve got some big balls making that bet.
    If you’re a dude….then you’re a dumb SOB and why do you have a chicks name?

  26. Dave Pear Says:

    Why do you have a chicks name?
    And I wear big boy pants.
    And before I take that bet.
    How are you going to pay me?
    You don’t seem trustworthy to me.

  27. Stanglassman Says:

    I know this kind of bet. It’s a heads I win tails you lose. Big man will try to collect from everyone if my some miracle she wins or just disappear when the Bucs win. Look- if you really want to bet exchange info with each of us or just admit your mouth might of got a little bigger than your wallet.

  28. Jody Says:

    My info was on here!!! Give me yours bet is on.

  29. '74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Jody comes to a Bucs site to complain about our new quarterback and say he sucked in college and will keep sucking. $500 says this clown is a 12 year old girl who clearly has never seen Winston play (who was damn near a consensus #1 overall pick by all “experts”) and is just mad at the world because her mommy took her Bieber poster down. That’s fine Jody – keep looking like a fool, because you hold zero credibility here with your moronic comments.

  30. '74 Bucs Fan Says:

    You know what Jody – why don’t you enlighten us with some further explanation for your comment:

    “Winston sucked in college” – care to explain that further? Maybe some stats to back it up? INTs, sure did last year – lost one game. What college quarterback was better? Mariota – because he can scramble? RJ3 is a better athlete with a much better arm – and how’s he dong? Keep in mind that college speed doesn’t mean jack in the NFL. Oh and your QB might want to be able to read a defense, because that’s kind of important.

    So what is it Jody? Why the hate for Winston? Please share…

  31. BamaBuc Says:

    Joe I don’t post a lot but please put that boys info up so the guys can collect.

  32. '74 bucs fan Says:

    Arguably the top 5 QBs:


    All excellent at reading defenses and knowing where to go with the ball. None are speedy scramblers. Scramble tells me you couldn’t read the defense worth a damn and had no option after your first wr option was covered. You can keep your scrambler Jody.

    Go Famous! Go Bucs! Bye Jody!

  33. BamaBuc Says:

    ^^^^ Here here. Cheers mate.

  34. bucsbedabest Says:

    Jody Says-

    You said “My info was on here!!! Give me yours bet is on.” Where is your info?

    Here is mine –

    Rob Roy
    1426 Green Oaks Dr
    Arcadia CA 91006
    Phone # 626.355.4486

    If this is for real we should both send our $500 to a neutral party to hold. That person would then send the money to the winner. Money should be sent asap to confirm bet? Let me know if you agree?

  35. Stanglassman Says:


    I wrote the same thing last night but didn’t post it. Re: Neutral party holding the cash and info. This- I posted my info yet it is nowhere to be found crap doesn’t cut it for me. Until she agrees to exchange info and give cash to a neutral party it’s all just sh1t talk. I have my cash ready and will give it to Owley, StPeteBF, Nate or Lakeland someone who has been around and can trust. Otherwise it’s not on because I will pay if I (unlikely) lose and I can’t say the same for Jody.
