Cutting Off The Head Coach

November 2nd, 2015
Mankins made a move

Mankins made a move

Joe’s trained reporter eye looks for all the details.

And Joe finds this one telling from yesterday’s victorious locker room scene.

After the moving and brief ceremony led by Logan Mankins to present a game ball to Kwon Alexander, Lovie is passionately addressing the club when Mankins cuts him off. And it was intentional, Mankins even raised his hand to redirect attention his way while Lovie was speaking.

Mankins then succeeds in interrupting Lovie. Not one Buccaneer in the video seems surprised, and Mankins gets out his message of “commitment from everyone” is needed moving forward.

Is it common for players to interrupt Lovie? Do players try to tweak the head coach’s message mid-sentence like that?

Joe has no clue, but Joe does know some NFL coaches would never tolerate that kind of thing.

  1. Defense Rules Says:

    Interesting catch Joe, and you’re right on. After Mankins said what he said about Kwon, locker room pep talk from Lovie needed to end there. Everyone was already ‘in the moment’ and anything else to the team as a whole said risks detracting from that. As a captain and team leader, Logan recognized that I’d expect. Lovie apparently didn’t.

  2. mhall85 Says:

    Uh, that’s a little overblown… I wouldn’t call that an “interruption,” especially after Lovie called Mankins forward in the first place.

  3. bryan Says:

    I caught it. Logan is a man. Lovie is a man. Lovie cut Logan off before he finished what he had to say. If Lovie is going to call on Logan to make a speech then he should let him finish it. I guarantee to a man neither had an issue with each other. They would be understanding that they just got a victory and that was an emotional situation. Joe, this post is an attempt to start nonsense. You are better than that.

    What nonsense? Joe observed. You decide. Simple as that. Joe’s watched hundreds of coach speeches in locker rooms. Don’t remember ever seeing a coach get interrupted and cut off.–Joe

  4. Bucco Brice Says:

    the headline is perfect…cut off the head coach indeed…the team has talent, the head coach? not so much…

  5. Tampa Tony Says:

    Now I can only hope Jameis waves off the punt team to show Loser Lovie who is really in charge

  6. Ed Says:

    Lovie was the one who called on mankins to talk in the first place. Say what you will about his game managment, player evaluation, or scheming where criticism is warranted. But creating a story about this seems like a reach.. Im sure it will get a chuckle out of some folks though.

  7. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    Lovie interrupted because Winston started the one team one heartbeat theam lol

  8. Getaclue Says:

    Some much needed leadership from a player. I’m sure mccoy was their with his hand raised for ten minutes so he could say something

  9. Getaclue Says:


  10. Mark Says:

    Lovie called Mankins over there to talk but you sure do love making something out of nothing don’t you? Whatever it takes to get some page clicks I guess.

    Sir, don’t be a doofus. If Joe only cared about page-clicks, then Joe would do a daily rumors column, run a bunch of TMZ-style stuff, and wouldn’t waste loads of time covering Bucs practices and traveling to road games. Joe would just sit around and type what most people want to read. Joe doesn’t operate like that. Joe write about what Joe finds interesting. Period. Re-read what’s written here, re-watch the video, and you’ll see Joe is merely stating facts. Don’t like it here, then it’s off to the thoughtless websites for you.–Joe

  11. LargoSamIM Says:

    I have a thought on why the Bucs DB’s seem to be regressing. Now, first off, it can not be for lack of coaching….. it is just too obvious that the group is not performing. Perhaps, its just the opposite….. over-coaching. It’s a pretty well accepted axiom that defensive players… seem to play better when they are loose, react, and don’t have to overthink…. t slows them down… and just a little bit of that goes a long way -especially with that position group. Unless they are continually put in the wrong coverage schemes (coaching) then I suspect that they need to stop thinking and play faster… they play like they are afraid to make a mistake ….. and that indecisiveness can be the result of overthinking…. just a thought….

  12. D-Rome Says:

    I’m ashamed of myself for clicking on this particular story. Lovie has the respect of all the players.

  13. ATrain Says:

    One win is not a Coach made…

    Lovie is listening though as you saw on 4th and 1..

    The players played hard because they knew what position Lovie was in.. Win or the Fans will revolt.

    The true test will be next few games see if the players continue..Or did they just want to keep the nice coach around for a little longer..

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    WOW see my post on the thread below this one about the faces in the locker room while Lovie was giving his speech. Joe posted a pic from the locker room in his Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow section this morning and I studied all them. I don’t know what you guys saw in that pic but I saw players that simply don’t believe a word he’s saying. I posted it in the thread below this long before I even clicked on this article and read it. Now this article backs up what I saw in the picture. 3 guys looking at the floor, 1 looking at the wall and a GMC giving him an I don’t believe a word you’re saying look on his face.

    See what you see in the picture. Joe’s is bigger so the picture tells a 1000 words to me and I’m VERY good at reading faces. This D has no faith in Lovie, because it’s not working and they know it. Saw the same look from Melton on the sidelines during the 4th quarter yesterday.

    Think I’m BSing look at the picture.

    Better yet look at the bigger picture that Joe posted on the main page.

  15. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Mountain meet molehill.

    Though I’m sure the trolls will be more than happy to use it against Lovie.

  16. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    87, that is a huge stretch.

  17. Mike Johnsom Says:

    I don’t read much into this. Our BUCS won. And we true Fans will take it…anyway we can get it. Perhaps mankins thinks we are coming together as a ream. Maybe he sees a..rising spirit in the Bucs. Center Hawley says, We are very very close to developing something special with our Bucs. These guys been around. They know when a locker room is trying to..come together. Mankins felt moved by the effort on Sunday. And so should we. Just win Bucs. That’s all we beat up fans ask. any means necessary. Make us Buc fans really feel good on Mondays.

  18. bryan Says:

    What nonsense??? Taking a great moment, one where people are rallying around their brother and turning into the oldest child challenging the alpha status of dad. That NONSENSE!

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    Bonzai…I studied the picture for about a minute and a 1/2 this morning before I clicked the article. Look at the pic on the main page. Look at the players in the background. Does that look like anyone is listening to this guy to you? There’s no stretch at all. Then 3 hours after I’m studying that picture Joe puts up this article. That’s no coincidence to me at all. I’m not THAT anti-Lovie as some of the hardcore haters are in here. Just look at the bigger picture on the main page, then come back and tell me what you see in the picture.

  20. Pick6 Says:

    not sure everybody is looking that the right incident. it happens in the last 15-20 seconds of the video, not when he calls logan forward. it was unusual but i don’t know how much to read into it.

  21. DMAD1 Says:

    Quality lies there, pal. –Joe

  22. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    buc87, I see what you are saying and the fake guy is right there, send lovie and him out of town, I think there is a good nucleus that another coach could get out, Koetter is getting everything out of the offense and Jameis is going to be good, he looked like a young philip rivers or big ben yesterday with the way he was leading, but just need a new HC

  23. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    Did anyone catch Joe Hawley roll his eyes as he was getting the play call right before we took a knee before over time?

  24. mac Says:

    This team would be solid with a better head coach…

    Glazers please hire Matt Patricia as our new HC/DC and allow Lovie to return to his basement…

  25. Buc1987 Says:

    Dusthty…thank you for seeing what I saw. I thought it was just me, so I showed it to my wife as well. She came to the same conclusion as I did when she studied the picture. Like I said it could have been an older picture after a loss so I don’t know, but that’s what I took from the pic. For all I know guys were smiling after the picture was taken.

  26. road warrior Says:

    Didn’t get what Joe got out of this video and didn’t see what buc87 sees in one still shot. if you watch the video or any video of any locker room you will see the same expression on most of the players faces.

  27. unbelievable Says:

    Got to be honest, doesn’t look like he cut Lovie off at all. He was called up to talk.

  28. mike10 Says:

    Why wasn’t a defender/team “leader” (93) the one to hand the ball off?

    I don’t know, I’m glad Mankins is stepping up – that’s what we wanted when we got him – but it’s just weird an “implant” was the one to do it.

  29. mike10 Says:

    “implant” on the offense*

  30. Reach11 Says:

    Seems like a hate coach smith site more than a Bucs fan site. Also seems like there are a lot of folks who think they have done, could do or would do better. How about the apparent comraderie of the team after a tough loss on the road? How about the emotion and grit by our LB who just lost his brother and laid it all on the field? Those things (and more) are what I see in that picture and video. I could probably see the negative things if That’s what I was looking for in the first place. Keep it up Bucs! You’re getting better and gave at least one person joy and pride this week.

  31. OneLove Says:

    Another ridiculous TMZ type article to get “haters” to try and make something out of nothing. Ascribing ludicrous motives to Joe’s work is petty, lame and hurtful. Sorry you are so reading comprehension challenged.–Joe

    Now we have people pretending to be “experts” on reading facial expressions on still pictures!! Thanks for the good laugh on a Monday Morning…

    “It’s as simple as that” – Lovie Smith

    “Changing coaches about halfway through a rebuilding effort is a recipe for perpetual failure.” – Johnny “America’s Commenter” Dejay

    “If Lovie don’t no how to coach so be it… Hard to believe he would get a job offer and you wouldn’t…. Wonder why??? Your idiots that’s why…” – JAB83

    “So my advice would be, yes, it’s okay to throw things at your TV when your team has a monumental collapse like the Bucs did on Sunday in Washington. But take a deep breath and understand that it is only going to get worse if you continue to jump from one coach to the next.” – Peter King

  32. bryan Says:

    Reach11! Amen Brother!

  33. Howard Cosell Says:

    Trading Mankins would be the height of stupidity, shortsightedness and cheapness. It’s obvious to anyone with a modest IQ that Mankins has a lot to do with the O-lines success and offense’s resurgence.

  34. JAB83 Says:

    Hmmmm Joe….

    Lovie gave Logan the floor and inner jected his thoughts cutting off Logan…. Not the other way around….

    You must have a MSN reporters trained eye….

    Or perhaps you are still caught up in the tizzy of BUCS fevor after a win that you failed to realize… Logan was trying to finish and agreed with the coach adding “from everybody” to punctuate the coaches point!!!!

    Simple as that…

  35. Bo Says:

    Joe reaching on this one…

  36. JAB83 Says:

    OK 87….

    Your officially an idiot, your sofa king we taught it. Mentally challaged people look down on you….

    Your not a Troll I will give you that
    Your not a Fan of Depression I will give you that

    Your just a straight from the basement idiot….

  37. Bo Says:

    Joe must have an ego problem caused by a small genetic package.. “Boo hoo, no one talks louder than me!”

  38. bucrightoff Says:

    Seeing as you’re mentally challenged JAB83, do you look down on 87?

  39. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    I think Mankins is asserting himself as the ALPHA DOG and team leader and maybe he sees that players are not totally listening to lovie and I thought in the past there have been player only meetings of get togethers to smooth things out and perhaps mankins was just showing that kwon is on the front lines putting it out there everyday and mankins knows that and wants kwon to always know that they are brothers whereas lovie may be gone soon

  40. Capt. Tim Says:

    1987 and Dusththy.
    The two of you are seeing ofd visions, because of the depth and location of where you normaly keep your heads stuck.
    Pull’em out of your asses fellas, then everything will look normal

  41. TAC Says:

    I noticed this also, but also noticed when Mankins was saying he was personally proud while talking to kwon, you hear Lovie inject himself into the convo with “we all are”, cutting off Mankins.

    I don’t think there is a big power trip thing, but the entire episode showed Mankins as the real deal, heard you guys talk a little about him and his Oline leadership, but that was team yesterday.

    BTW, it takes great Leadership to allow Mankins to step into that role, Lovie loses nothing by letting those guys take that and run with it. Just step aside, and let them go. That locker room looks like it belongs to Logan Mankins.

  42. DB55 Says:

    I wish they would both get cut off. Looks like Koetter and Jameis are going to take over this team regardless of what the Glaziers say or do. Lovie kinda reminds me of Bowden before he retired. Kinda like “yes sir great but can you go stand over there and eat your popcorn”.

  43. tnew Says:

    I may be reaching, but how saw this was Mankins, trying to bridge the gap between, offense to defense and trying to make this a team thing. If the defensive coordinator (head coach), gives it, not nearly as big of deal as the team captain.

    Directly made a plea to all of the team to bring the level of commitment that Kwon did on every play. I say this as a moment of unity rather than divisiveness. Also, this is Mankins, fully showing his commitment to the process at Tampa.

  44. Buc1987 Says:

    Jab83…I’m not the one that kept making idiotic statements last night that Lovie turned into an offensive coach while he was in his basement. That was you.

    I’ve already told that to 6 different Buc fans NOT on this site. They’ll all cracked up and said what an idiot.

    Who here agrees with Jab83 that Lovie transformed himself into an offensive minded coach while in his basement? Jab seems to think the O is playing so well because of Lovie. Do you agree? If so then that makes you an idiot as well.

    That has GOT to be the most idiotic thing I’ve ever read on this site in the last 4 years. Jab83…after he gets fired you can go with him too and you won’t be missed by many.

  45. D-Rome Says:

    Glazers please hire Matt Patricia as our new HC/DC and allow Lovie to return to his basement…

    LOL….Belichick’s coordinators in the Patriots era have all failed as head coaches.

    Romeo Crennel? FAIL.
    Charlie Weis? FAIL.
    Josh McDaniels? FAIL.
    Eric Mangini? FAIL.

  46. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Big fan of yours, Joe, but I also feel that this post was misleading. Your description of the event simply does not match what happened in that video. Absolutely no head coach in the NFL (or any leader for that matter)would have had an issue with what happened there. Mankins was invited to speak and he was supporting Lovie’s message. Regardless, I remain a big fan. 🙂

    You might want to re-read what’s actually written — and shown in the timeline mentioned related to the video. Joe simply noted facts. They’re not often popular around here, and Joe is fine with that. But don’t claim to be seeing/reading something else. –Joe

  47. bucrightoff Says:

    The Lovie trolls really are something aren’t they 87? I mean the Glennon Mob I get, young player who really hasn’t had a chance in a decent situation. Maybe he could turn out great, unlikely but there’s some potential for it to happen.

    The Freemanites? I mean they had Schiano, and even if that was wrong and misguided, you could I suppose make an argument Schiano’s style messed with Freeman’s head and threw him off.

    Lovie Smith just coached NFL game #167. I mean he is what he is at this point, and that’s been on display through his mostly dismal tenure here. Yet the Lovie trolls would have you believe we are blessed to have one of the top 5 coaches in the league. Tons of evidence strongly suggests otherwise. Yet onward they march.

  48. TAC Says:

    87, I think Lovie does deserve some credit in the development of the rookie QB. I think his job is tied to the continued development of JW, and that includes the entire Offensive development. Koetter is doing a great Job, and Lovie is the HC.

    I think the defense gets fixed sometime in the future, but it sure hasn’t been as fast as I thought. And the regression of players is what is baffling. This is supposed to be the most simplistic scheme to play according to past greats, but great current talent still looks lost 75% or more of the time.

    Currently, I’m just suffering on through the season, and looking for anything that is improving on the D side, and appreciating the play of the Offense.

    This has always been a bend don’t break defense, capitalize on mistakes, while limiting the big plays. NFL rules have changed, so that is out the window at times.

    But there was improvement yesterday, and that was red zone, after the bend. The Falcons made mistakes, and the D capitalized, thank you Kwon. We just need some more play-makers.

    I get pissed off also, and reserve the right to complain and call for heads anytime I want, and don’t worry about what anyone on here says, well except to play within the rules of the admin, lol.

    Keep up the fire, so to speak, don’t let others affect you, they are buc fans too.

  49. JAB83 Says:

    And this is why i dont talk to stupid Trolls

    He has done what yall wanted him to do as a coach but yall are all to busy stroking one anothers…….. egos??? Over who said what first or predicted that or blah blah blah look at me everyone… That y’all forget the BS y’all say as quick as you say it unless something happens and you suddenly become right…

    Y’all want a good coach for a change vs different coaches every other year right!!! Guess what you have one… If y’all stop letting your egos get in the way you will see this… You question if the game has passed Lovie because he can adjust to today’s game….

    The only thing having a hard time adjusting around here is y’all egos…. It really is painful hearing you we taughts… I wish yall would just keep your opinions to yourselves when you don’t have anything good to say!!!!

    So if the game has passed Lovie and he can’t adjust to today’s game.. How is it in less then two years he has come in here and hit two grand slams of a draft and put together a foundation on offence that we have never seen here in Tampa!!!! EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE FLYS IN THE FACE OF YOUR OPINIONS OF HIM….

    This must be why y’all hate him so much…. Imagine what he will do with the next two drafts!!!!

    But you Mouton’s rather be right and have him be what you believe he is so you can say… See see see I said this would happen….

    And that’s the difference between us Fans of Inspiration and you flakes…. When we are right we just move on to the next thing… We could careless who said it because are egos do not run our lives….

    I will no longer be reply to Idiots or Trolls… Fans of Depression I will continue to try and work with…. You other donkeys will go away on your own

  50. ATrain Says:

    One Love I wish you would stop hiding and just let everyone know your true Identity…


  51. Buc1987 Says:

    Lovie Smith transformed himself into such an offensive minded coach in his basement so much that he decided to take over defensive playcalling for Leslie.

    Lovie Smith transformed himself into such an offensive guru while he was in his basement that our offense looked putrid last season.

    Lovie Smith is such an offensive minded coach that they may as well just fire Koetter right now.

    TAC…you’re correct Lovie is not only a great offensive mind, but he’s also been very instrumental in JW’s development. Fire the QB coach and Koetter. We don’t need them.

    Sing it with me everyone…

    There’s nothing HE can do that can’t be done
    Nothing HE can sing that can’t be sung
    Nothing HE can say but HE CAN’T learn how to play the game
    It’s easy

    There’s nothing HE can make that can’t be made
    No one HE can save that can’t be saved
    Nothing HE can do but HE can learn to be you in time
    It’s easy

    All you need is Lovie
    All you need is Lovie
    All you need is Lovie, Lovie
    Lovie is all you need

    And this is why i dont talk to stupid Trolls

    But people are nice enough to talk to a stupid troll like you. Perhaps give a little, get a little?

  53. Buc1987 Says:

    bucrightoff….correct and the first beatdown that Lovie’s D takes this season. NONE of these people will be anywhere to be found for days afterwards. They didn’t see all the fumbles and boneheaded plays that Atlanta made like you and I did. All they saw was Lovie Smith and ONELOVIE calls him a genius even. That’s how much they paid attention to the Falcons sloppiness and then the Bucs letting a 17 point lead slip away. Also letting a 24 point lead slip away the week before and the TWO blowout losses that happened last season. None of that matters ya see. Because Lovie is a genius.

    When Lovie’s gone, I truly do hope they go too. The #1 reason why I didn’t even want to come here all last week was I didn’t want to get into fights with the ignorantly blind Lovie supporters. It’s one thing to root for the guy. Yah sure root for him, I do too, because that means I’m rooting for my team. BUT the over the top love for this clown after everything we’ve seen so far from this defense is just dayum astounding!

    Now it’s onto well Schiano and Dom screwed this team up so much it’s going to take Lovie time. Yet they forget that only 10% of the current roster on the team is from Dom-Rah-Schiano. The whole dayum team is Lovely’s product.

  54. Buc1987 Says:

    Jab83…I’m TEN times the Buc fan that you are. Yes you read that correctly TEN times.

    Where are you sitting at the next game? I’ll buy you a beer or 2 or 3 or 4 because one can’t possibly be sober and come up with the notion that Lovie transformed himself into an offensive minded coach in 1 year.

  55. DB55 Says:


    I thought we weren’t supposed to feed the tools, I mean trolls? I’ve never actually read any of his comments. Be careful stupidity can be contagious.

  56. TAC Says:

    87, I don’t say this often to anyone, but when you start putting words into what I write, then you deserve what you get.

    You are a blithering clown, and emotional wreck of an idiot.

    I tried to let you out of this:

    “I’m going to hold my breath, not watch any games until Lovie is fired little school girl BS”

    Guess what you high heeled clown shoe wearing mofo, you don’t matter, lol.

    You have emotional needs of feeling your opinion matters to everyone, guess what clown, l don’t give a f what your opinion is, and know mine is worth nothing also. I hope the Glazers don’t ever do anything based on what I write on this fan site.

    You are on the same tirade now as you were in your freeman ballsac swinging era. You were a clinging freemanite, who was wrong then, and may well be wrong now.

    After all that, I still appreciate you as a fiery bucs fan though, lol, and know you will be there when the time is right in the future.

  57. Buc1987 Says:

    And Jab…it has nothing to do with being right or wrong or being able to tell you I told you I was right. If he gets fired next week or a year from now I would have no reason to gloat. It actually sucks really. I don’t want this team to hit the reset button, scrap 50% of the roster and start all over again. That’s a recipe for disaster in most cases. In Lovie’s case it’s become apparent on too many situations. I never called for his firing last season, not one time. But I’ve seen enough to realize what the negative Nancy’s were talking about all summer long.

    I was Josh Freeman’s BIGGEST supporter on this site in the summer of 2013. I told everyone that they were wrong about Freeman. This happened daily and we got into scraps left and right on here. 3 games into the season I had seen enough and wanted him benched. When you’ve seen enough, you’ve seen enough. Perhaps you haven’t reached that point yet. Perhaps you never will.

  58. Buc1987 Says:

    TAC….I don’t watch the defensive side of the ball anymore and that’s the truth. I literally walk out of the room. My wife calls me when the O is back on the field. Someone is actually going to have to tell me if this defense gets better, because I can’t watch that pile of dung. Not dung actually there is about 4 decent to good players on the D. LVD, GMC, Banks, and Kwon. That’s it!

    I never put words into your mouth at all. That was my opinion when I said we should just fire Koetter and the QB coach if Lovie is so great at developing QB’s.

    I don’t give a rats crap what people think of me or my opinion. I’m like what Joe always says. Buc1987 writes about what Buc1987 cares about. It really has nothing to do with anyone elses opinion because about 75% of the time I don’t care about their opinion. Why wouldn’t someone want to stay away from this site after that Skins game when we still had people on here making every excuse they can for Lovie after that debacle?

  59. TAC Says:

    “That was my opinion when I said we should just fire Koetter and the QB coach”

    Crazy talk.

    “if Lovie is so great at developing QB’s.”

    I’m not going to lie, I had no faith in Lovie’s ability to develop, or better put really, to “allow” the development of a rookie QB. My concerns are no more, he is doing a great job, and I appreciate what he is doing. If you think he has nothing to do with that, then so be it, our opinions differ. Mine is he has everything to do with that, or allowing that to occur under his watch. It all matters, whether he is the HC at the future Superbowl, or not.

    I’m sold on JW, and everyone there counts in his future development, all of them, including the grocery buyer, and dinner cooker Lovie Smith.

  60. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Thanks for the reply Joe! I think it is awesome that you engage your readers openly and fairly. Here’s what I take issue with:

    Joe wrote:” Joe’s trained reporter eye looks for all the details.
    And Joe finds this one telling from yesterday’s victorious locker room scene.”

    That statement implies that you are drawing some kind of conclusion that only a trained reporter would spot. I’m saying that I’ve seen all that behavior before… In locker rooms, board rooms and other team environments. There is nothing there that a coach or leader would take issue with, even though you’re drawing that conclusion at the end with your closing statement.

    From what you wrote, I expected to see something much more confrontational or even disrespectful from Mankins. (I am glad that wasn’t the case.)

    I think your choice of words, in this case , leads the reader astray.

  61. loggedontosay Says:

    You made that up Joe.

  62. 813bucboi Says:

    COME ON MAN…the man gives us a win and most of you still aren’t satisfied…just support the team regardless of what happens…progress has been made from last year…remember last year the d didn’t start playing well until week 8..with the offense ahead of schedule we will be in good position for a 8-10 win season…heck after last year I would be happy with 6-8 wins….GO BUCS!!!

  66. Chris Says:

    Irresponsible journalism here. I dont care what you say Joe, this is a common media trick to make a story out of nothing when you cant find anything else to talk about. This sunday was the most positive sunday Bucs fans have experienced in a while and, I imagine with your pessimistic outlook you must be very uncomfortable without having something negative to talk about, so you stirred up this nonsense, nonsense that nobody other than you is even talking about. This is pathetic Joe, and you can argue it as much as you want but we (the fans) are the reason you have a job buddy, so instead of insulting people who disagree with you like a 12 year old, how about be a man and take some constructive criticism, stop trying to find negative story lines after such an amazing game. Now Ill sit and wait for your childish response

    Sir, since 2008, Joe shares what Joe finds interesting every day. You don’t have to like it. The day Joe cares about readers’ opinions is the day Joe will hang it up. Joe will not sit around and care about offending people, because every post offends someone. Joe approaches every day the same way. Joe writes about what Joe finds interesting. Joe writes loads of positive Bucs content. There are archives here. Feel free to look at every post since the Atlanta game was finished and add them up. As for this post, Joe presented pure facts, and offered an opinion. That’s not irresponsible. –Joe

    Its an opinion from the mind of pessimist, looking for something negative to say. If you found this interesting, then that just shows how lame you are doesn’t it? and the whole ”I dont care what anybody thinks of me” bit, is that why you take time to respond to these comments? lol You’re journalism is a joke joe, an irresponsible joke at that
