Stinking Panthers DT Star Lotulelei gives his takes on Bucs players.

The cool thing about having an NFC South rival in the Super Bowl is that Joe got a lot of feedback about the Bucs from the Stinking Panthers at Super Bowl Opening Night. One such player was stud defensive tackle Star Lotulelei.

Joe got Lotulelei to dish on Ali Marpet, Doug Martin and America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

JoeBucsFan: When you went up against Ali Marpet the first time, did you say to yourself or to Marpet, “Dude, you were D-III?”

Star Lotulelei: Marpet? Nah, there are a lot of players like that in this league. It doesn’t matter where you went to college. When you make it to the NFL, you are in the NFL and everyone is on the same level. You are going to get the best out of everybody.

Joe: Did Doug Martin’s bounceback year surprise you?

Lotulelei: No man, he’s a tough guy. I played against him when he was at Boise [State]. He is a great player, he’s a tough runner.

Joe: Jameis Winston often says the beatdown you and your defense put on him early in the season in Tampa was a wakeup call and turned his rookie season around. From your point of view, what skills or traits do you see in Jameis that makes him a talented quarterback?

Lotulelei: I think he is going to be a special player in this league because of what he can do. He can make all the throws and he can run. You put those two together; he’s going to be a great player. I mean, he’s in our division and we are going to face him every year twice a year. It is going to be tough. [Cam Newton and Jameis] they are going to be going at it for a while.

    Hey give Joe a break. It’s got to be a rough day being nice and friendly to those butthole panther players. lol. It’s a tough job and probably gets harder to be friendly when the worlds biggest butthole, Cam walks by.

    I find it hilarious yet not surprising that some of the same idiots that play the Character card consistently and have issues with Jameis are the first ones to take shots at Joe for posting feel good articles about bucs. I find the PC hypocrites so laughable.

    Of course, no current coach, player, broadcaster or team executive is NOT going to give an honest opinion on any subject that is related to a team, coach or player. Instead of dropping comments to Joe why don’t you skip the article and do something positive with your time.

    Thnaks for the content related to our favorite team Joe.

    The new faces of the NFL. I hear skeletons rolling in graves already. Hahaha!

    Have or will you talk to cam. I was to hear him talking about the messiah.

    After Carolina wins the SB, only Atlanta in the division has no trophy, how befitting. Manning riding off into the sunset with a win Sunday is just too ugly for me to contemplate.

  8. Joe Says:


    No Cam interview.

  9. Mike Johnson Says:

    Congrats to the Panthers. Unlike us..they stuck with their coach despite him having losing seasons. And now they are..reaping the rewards of BUILDING a good Defense. I mean, one could argue our Bucs last 2 drafts have been offensive.

    He should have been a Buc. The year we mysteriously traded for Revis, is the year a division foe grabbed a franchise player.

    Don’t quit you day job Dominik > you suck!
