Joe was back in the steel cage with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio this evening for a slightly abbreviated version of the hour on WDAE-AM 620.

Joe had all kinds of things to share.

Enjoy the audio below.

    Joe(s) great show once again. You are/were right once again. Keep on edumacating the masses.

    The only reasonable thought for letting Doug Martin walk is that Jason Licht is actually planning on spending some big dollars on Jason Pierre-Paul, Oliviar Vernon and Steve Smith? Which I doubt, but you never know. How many games did Doug Martin win for us last year? Put it this way, does anyone understand how many games we will lose this year without him? The reason why Martin was successful was because of his yards after contact. I would bet whomever his replacement is, even if it is Sims full time, will not produce the same because of not being elusive. Martin makes his OL look good. The only other reason not to re-sign him is simple. The Glazors are to cheap.

    I was driving home listening to iheartradios 640 big dog and heard the JoeBucsFan guys on the radio. I can honestly say that for me the “BIG DOG” show was a big whoopie doopie doo. This has got to be the lamest radio show on 640. With this is my second time listening to this program and first to hear the jbf guys (you do a good job). Is big dog always monotone. The Atl sports radio is way better even if i have ro hear mostly falcons news

    Godzilla is right.
    Simms is good. Martin is great. Martin is in his prime – 3 more years before hits 30 JOE, so I don’t get why you keep spouting off about him being 29 in a couple years…. Who cares?? That’s a couple years from now!
    He’s in his prime eth low miles snd no major knee issues.
    He is explosive and elusive, way more than Simms.

    SIGN DOUG MARTIN 4 years 26 mill.

  9. Dave Says:

    About the combine, one of the biggest tells is who did they talk to more than once?
    JOE? Any insight there? Do you know if they talked to DE Spence more than once snd did they investigate him?
    How about Buckner or Lawson or Dodd?

    Every mock out there has them taking Hargraves CB at 9.
    I don’t buy it. I think they absolutely must go DE

  10. Joe Says:

    I don’t get why you keep spouting off about him being 29 in a couple years…. Who cares??

    Jason Licht for starters.

  11. Joe Says:

    About the combine, one of the biggest tells is who did they talk to more than once?

    Only way to truly know is for a player to spill the beans, which is what Donovan Smith did with Joe last year.

    Joe was told that the Bucs spoke with every player there.

  12. Joe Dunn Says:

    RustyRhino – – not sure how often you have listened to Duemig on 620 (not 640) but his show is considered by most the BEST on Tampa airwaves . . .

    Other shows talk about all kinds of crap other than sports, or the host has an annoying voice, or doesnt know crap about the subject(s). Or, you can’y pick up the signal if you are more than a half mile from their station.

    I suggest you listen some more . . . when it comes to football, hockey and golf, I have heard no better expert on the local airwaves in my 20+ years of listening. Chris Thomas had the best TALENT on air I ever heard, but he is no longer with us and he did NOT play any of the major sports.

  13. Dave Says:

    Thanks for quick answers Joe!

    I understand they care about Doug M being 30 soon but it’s 3 years away.
    I would think they could sign him for 5-6 for 4 years.
    Well worth it.
    For that reason I can see why they didn’t want to franchise him for 11 mil.

    Regardless, a lot of Buc fans will be pissed if they don’t sign him. They have the money, he’s still young, he’s one of the best in the nfl and knows the offense.
    Just dumb if they let him go.

  14. Guzzie Says:

    Hey joe what’s you feeling bout Ezekiel Elliott if Martin leaves would he be a 1st round target

  15. Dave Says:

    One last thing on Martin—

    Yes, RBs can, for the most part, be interchangeable, but only on an established team. In my opinion, they are too young of a team to try to change out crucial parts.

  16. Dave Says:


    No. No. No. No. No.
    Not a chance. They need DE and CB.
    And no RB is worth round 1.

  17. Dave Says:

    You were talking about Mario Williams… That’s a free agent they absolutely should throw money at. He has 3 more dominant years and a chip on his shoulder right now.

  18. Joe Says:

    Hey joe what’s you feeling bout Ezekiel Elliott if Martin leaves would he be a 1st round target

    Would fall over backwards if the Bucs drafted a running back at No. 9.

  19. Guzzie Says:

    One of top backs for the next 8 years or Martin for 2 years someone that can be jwins edgerrin James and grow up together or another 1st round defensive end bust

  20. Guzzie Says:

    Best player available with the least amount of questions just a thought

  21. Buc Neckid Says:

    I know that the BUCS have TONS of Money,
    But I don’t know if I buy the whole
    “they did not franchise tag him, they don’t want him” logic.
    They just don’t want him at $11 M or whatever the exaggerated number is for one year and then do this dance all over again next off season trying to sign him to a Contract.
    I understand both sides of the argument
    But I just don’t think that RB is as valued a position as it once was and the days of a ONE Feature back offense are all but over in the NFL.
    Martin IS worth a new contract.
    And is worth a Contract that honors his value to the team.
    And that is what is being determined by both sides right now.

  22. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Economics fellas. The Bucs could not franchise Doug without incurring the wrath of the league. By all accounts, the tag number is twice the current fair value of marquee backs. Plus, they’d be paying a guy for two years only to get him for one.

    From Doug’s perspective, he does not need to sign now. He has time to see what the market will bear. Hopefully, the market is not ridiculous. If it is then he’s gone. If it’s not then the Bucs should match it and maybe laden the contract with some performance and team accomplishment incentives.

    The one thing they cannot do is let him leave for a fair value deal elsewhere. We can’t keep letting our young talent go and expect to ever achieve greatness. The NFL does not and never has worked that way.

    Joe Dunn,
    This was my second show in its entirety. I actually listened to 620 from 8:30am to 5:58pm when I finally changed from my work truck to my personal vehicle, a 700s. I will give Mr. Duemig and the whole station another several listens while I roll with Atlanta area traffic at work.
    I was typing in my phone in accident induced bumper to bumper, stop and stop traffic. Sorry about the 640 and other issues there, it looked close. I started out from work at a nice 53 degrees got home at a chilly 40 when I finally posted I thought it already had.
