Who Wants Out?

December 22nd, 2015
Lovie will find out who wants to play.

Lovie will find out who wants to play.

One can sense some have tuned out Lovie Smith. Just about every team not in the playoffs has a player or two (or more) looking for the exit sign.

The fact the Bucs lead the NFL in penalties and regularly get roasted by rotten quarterbacks strongly suggests the message from Lovie is not getting through to some (or maybe it’s the wrong message?).

In this BSPN video, among many good tidbits of information, former NFL executive Joe Banner explains the guys who want out of Tampa Bay will become rather obvious these next two games. Banner also talks about how to fix the Bucs.

    @Tiny Tim – Well, at least your web name tells everyone in advance not to expect too much in the way intelligence/common sense when you manage to make your fingers work on a keyboard.

    Time to go back to bed Tiny Tim. You exceeded your brain capacity and are exposing yourself as a complete moron. Leave the commenting to those who are capable of understanding the meaning behind the numbers that so confuse you.

    They’re going to change the phase to “Stats are for tiny tims”.


    Is there any evidence that players have started tuning out Lovie or is this just speculation? I think the players realize this is a young up and coming team.

    Anyone who wants glennon over Winston at this point is watching a game thru a sheet

    Lol completion % get some wrs who can catch then come back wit that

  6. Fsuking Says:

    I agree with everything negative directed towards Tiny Tim, especially the much needed assaults on his intelligence.

  7. LargoBuc Says:

    Jameis has done what I had hoped he would do. He has made everyone around him better, more specificly the oline and running game. But for Koetters vertical attack to work against good defenses, we need our oline to improve their pass protection, especially the tackles. Donovan Smith has overall been decent, and he has time to improve that aspect of his game. But we absolutely need an upgrade at rt. Unfortounately, the group of incoming fa’s dosent look too promising.

    Actually, Tiny Tim isn’t as dumb as you make him out to be. Washington Post has number of drops by team, and the Bucs are #10. So all of this excuse making for Jaboo about drops is greatly exaggerated. #2 team with the most drops is the Patriots – I wonder if Brady cries about drops.

    Jaboo is decent, but he’s nothing beyond that yet.

  9. Sick of Lovie Says:


    Brady also has about a 120 more pass attempts this season than Jameis. Not to mention Brady also has a defense that actually succeeds at getting ball back in his hands. More possessions = more opportunities.
    Oh, and we are trying to be a run first team and have a more balanced scheme, so when we have several drops in a single ge it hurts. Especially when most of them come on 3rd down.

  10. Couch Fan Says:

    I keep thinking back to the article Joe posted a few weeks ago on Mike Evans drops and how the coaching staff said “they dont talk to him about them because they know he’s tryinig.” If this is the mentality our coaching staff has then how who’s to say they also dont talk about penalties with their players either?

    It’s Christmas…..lets cut Tiny Tim some slack…

    Tim Cratchit — better known as Tiny Tim — is the crippled youngster in the 1843 Charles Dickens story A Christmas Carol. Tim is a sickly little boy who walks with a crutch; his father, Bob Cratchit, works for the wealthy miser Ebenezer Scrooge.

    Perhaps we should pity Tiny Tim…..he apparently has named himself after the character.

    He might win offensive rookie of the year. He’s far better than decent for this stage in his career.

    Sorry you’re still bitter about the draft. Have anymore OJ comments, in reference to Jameis in Tallahassee?

  13. OneLove Says:

    Most of the players “tuning” out Lovie Smith probably won’t be able to START on other “competitive” teams anyway… Good Riddance!!

  14. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Most of the players left on the field are playing for contracts and careers. This is the only chance some of them will get to stick in the league.

    I’m not too worried about anybody tuning anybody out because of #3. I think all of our “head cases” are on offense..ME and ASJ and #3 will keep them in line.

    The Defensive scrubs that are currently filling out much of our roster are playing their butts off in the hope of at least sticking as a depth player next year. Many of them will probably be out of the league but if we can discover a few keepers all the better.

    What happened to tiny tim? Joe your prologue is misleading. Prologue is a word that should only be used with great piece of literature. Irony is good too.

  16. Dave Says:

    Basically they have some DEs who don’t get it. They also have a bunch of DBs that have no clue how to play a zone and aren’t talented enough to play man.
    Good riddance to all them.
    New DEs and DBs in FA and draft.
    A new WR plus Murphy and Bell come back.
    Just about the whole O Line comes back. Most LBs and DTs. The RB group.

    I wonder what they get for Glennon. I’m guessing he is traded for draft pick as SO MANY teams ended up starting QBs that were worse than Glennon. I think they can get a 3rd for him.
