Mold For Jameis

October 15th, 2015

Won't take cheap shots other teams' defensive scrubs.

News that Michael Koenen, last year’s Tampa Bay punter, spent most of that season in agony with a debilitating disorder very likely caused by mold is just icing on the cake that was the Chase for Jameis.

Joe now has an excuse to find some St. Pete beach hottie willing to dabble in body shots at noon on a Thursday afternoon. NFL scribe Alex Marvez talked to Koenen and broke the story today. Here’s a snippet:

But last October, Koenen began feeling constantly ill. He couldn’t complete a Friday practice and took pain-killers before playing in a game 48 hours later.

“At first it felt like flu symptoms,” Koenen said. “Then one day my back and neck tightened and I was aching all over. I felt nauseous all the time. When I was sitting in my truck driving, I couldn’t lean forward to pick something up off the console. It was just terrible.”

Koenen’s a 30.3-yard gross average on seven punts in losses to Cleveland and Atlanta last November was 7.5 yards less than his career mark. In only three other games during his previous nine seasons had Koenen posted such a low figure.

“It’s hard to punt when your hips won’t go anywhere,” he said.

What’s important is the Bucs knew Koenen, who had a statistically horrible season, was messed up yet didn’t replace him. (You can read more about that via the link above).

Now why would the Bucs not replace a punter that can’t physically punt? Hell, Lovie Smith told fans real football doesn’t start until November and Koenen was messed up before that. Lovie was even telling fans the Bucs were players in the NFC South playoff chase.

Keep in mind last year’s kicker, Patrick Murray, was a punter in college and had a strong leg. But he never got a shot while Koenen struggled.

Joe can only conclude one thing: the Chase for Jameis was on, and the Bucs were going to do whatever they could get away with to win it.

    Then who is lovie chasing for this year, or is this just a bad coached/team ??????

  2. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    It’s so obvious if you stop and think about it

    Kennedy assasination in ’63
    Lovie Smith born in ’58
    63-58 = 5
    5 alien bodies recovered at Roswell
    Plus one Michael Koenen spore-infested drink = 1
    1 is the number of the pick the Bucs wanted in order to get Jameis

    This makes so much sense it’s scary

    Step 1 – Spore infested drink
    Step 2 – ???
    Step 3 – Profit!

    Look guys I am being honest here, I can only drink Aquafina because other brands of water i get sneezy and catch flu, must be the bacteria in the water that our immune system rejects, i dont know.

  5. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Creamsickle you have forgotten one important part of your hypothesis, who deflated the footballs and who gained from it….the grassy knoll has nothing on the gassy players lounge at one buc….you are definitely on to something…carry on sir carry on sir carry on

  6. DefenseRules Says:

    CreamsicleBananaHammock … When you explain it that way it all makes perfect sense. Oh wait, there were really 6 alien bodies recovered at Roswell (although the government only admits to 5). There must be more to the story than meets the eye.

  7. DB55 Says:

    Don’t ever question Lovie smith. He is a professional and will always play the people who give the bucs the best chance to win. (Cough cough)

    “Kennedy assasination in ’63”

    Well if you talk to some people they would tell you that Jameis was probably the shooter on the grassy knoll.

    Doesn’t matter if he wasn’t born yet. He’s the devil don’t cha know.

    JFK murder who dun it? All I know is it was not the patsy who said he was not the patsy.

  10. Buc Neckid Says:

    I smell a Lawsuit!
    Was it at One Buc?
    MRSA one year Mold the Next????

  11. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers! Where kickers come to die!

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Buc Neckid …no it wasn’t at One Buc. It was at his own home from PH water. Yes he is suing the company.

  13. BuccoDav Says:

    Whatever happened to Tynes’ lawsuit for MRSA? After the news of Daniel Fell’s infection I was wondering if the source might be from Tynes’ days with the NY Giants… MRSA in the Meadowlands wouldn’t surprise anyone.

  14. unbelievable Says:

    LOL @ Wyoming. That was a good one!

  15. Supersam Says:

    There something wrong with your theory Joesph, we’re playing even worse than last year, so what are we chasing for this year? Could it be that this is just a really bad team? Lol

  16. passthebuc Says:

    Watch out for which you wish, you might just get it.

    we did and ??????????????????????????????

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    Supersam …I think our o-line looks 10 times better than last season. Yes I said 10 times. We’re running the ball better than last season as well. So there is improvement.

    The D…well that’s looks worse than last season…

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo loves mold….Pablo has been living in mold infested homes and sleeping on mold covered beds for years…..sometimes Pablo snorts mold for recreational purposes….Pablo has mold on his mustache as does Pablo’s wives. Pablo thinks Koenen is just a pu$$y for blaming mold for his weak leg. All three of Pablo’s legs are very strong….and moldy”

  19. Tiny Tim Says:

    Winston is not a good quarterback. His mechanics are off and his brain is complete mesh.

  20. Supersam Says:

    Agree, we are running the ball better. The defense has clearly taken 2 steps backward, which is baffling because these are all men who were brought in that “know Lovies system”. Even Lavonte David looks to me like he’s actually regressing.

  21. buc15 Says:


  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Yes Tiny….and you’re stuck with him for the next 3 YEARS!

  23. Tiny Tim Says:

    #29 QB Rating in the league. Most of his stats are garbage time and/or dink and dunk passes. #Bust

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    Tiny Tim is right! Marcus is waYYY better than Jameis.

  25. JAB83 Says:

    JFK to 9-11 Documentary….hmmmm the trail runs deep indeed what and interest documentary!!!!… No connection to the BUCS however… They don’t run to deep… Chances are they just ran aground last season

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    Tiny…check back in THREE years!

  27. Buc1987 Says:

    Typical Bucs fan expecting an all pro from a rookie…

    I just can’t fit
    Yes, I believe it’s time for us to quit
    When we meet again
    Introduced as friends
    Please don’t let on that you knew me when
    I was hungry and it was your world
    Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes you do
    You make love just like a woman, yes you do
    Then you ache just like a woman
    But you break just like a little girl.

    @1987 – We are not expecting an all pro from a rookie..just a QB better than or at least equal to, the one picked right after him..

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    bucsbedabest…Once again check back in 3 years!

  31. Buc1987 Says:

    Winston’s QBR is 77.6 through 5 games. He’s had 2 games of over a 100 QBR.

    Mariota’s QBR is 99.7 through 4 games and most of that comes from playing the Bucs with a 158 QBR. Outside of the Bucs game he’s yet to have over a 100 QBR against any other team. Oh and he threw an INT last week late in the game to seal the Titans defeat.

    So I’d say JW is playing as well as that guy in Tennessee and in some games better than MM.

    Let’s see what Super Mario does this week, see if that 99.7 rises or lowers. They’re playing the Fins with an interim coach and all @ home.

    Most Buc fans DO expect all pro’s from rookies. That’s just the way it’s always been, and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon. There’s a reason why they say Ali Marpet looks really good for “a rookie”. Majority of rookies usually don’t set the league on fire in their first season.

    Then you ache just like a woman….

    The punter kicked the ball back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left.

    LOL Mayhem

    This has to be by far my all-time favorite comment on JBF and I’ve been reading this blog since 2009.
