Sapp Is “Excited Again”

April 24th, 2016

sapp_strutBucs icon and prolific unofficial team spokesman Warren Sapp has been been spending lots of time around town lately, including coaching youth in Pasco County this week.

The prolific eye-RAH! Kaufman was out in Hudson yesterday talking to Sapp.

Kaufman shared on Twitter that Sapp is all-in for America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston.

@ikaufmanTBO – Warren Sapp on Jameis Winston: “We’ve got a quarterback. The reason we’re going to get excited again is because we’ve got a quarterback.”

Joe loves Sapp, but Joe can’t ignore that Sapp moved all-in for Josh Freeman, too, even after Greg Schiano benched him after three games in 2013.

Sapp also ripped Mike Glennon in a tense exchange with Joe at the 2014 Super Bowl, but then Sapp reversed course on Glennon during the 2014 season and thought he was “the man” and Lovie Smith would realize it.

Joe, of course, loves Jameis, but Sapp’s hardly has been on the money when it comes to Bucs quarterbacks.

    I was Hudson ALL FREAKING DAY yesterday Joe.

    Damn. Might of finally got my jersey signed now that I heard he’s been a little more relaxed about crap like that these days.

    I’d be like. I’m Ryan Benjamin’s cousin. He played with you on the SB team. He coaches at River Ridge High School here in Pasco now.


    Damn my modem went to crap and my autistic teen went ballistic without her oxygen(internet) so I had to travel to my mothers for the whole freaking day and I was stuck in HUDSON for about 8 hours. Hudson.

    Joe how do we find out about this stuff before it happens? Someone had to have known he was going to be in Hudson. It was probably in the paper which I don’t read anymore or something like that.

    Sapp’s prowess was in putting QB’s on their backs…not being a good judge of their abilities or character…If he was any good at excercising good judgement…yeah.

    Hey man he is human I love sapp wish he was still on NFL network.

  4. Destinjohnny Says:

    A lot of 99’s opinions on players have more to do with race a lot of the time.
    Not all the time though

  5. Kevin Says:

    This is more than about just the quarterback and his skill level. Irs also about his enthusiasm and how infectious his will to win has spread throughout the team. You can feel things will be better moving forward

  6. DallasBuc Says:

    Sapp was all about incompetent Lovie Smith too…

  7. Tampa Tony Says:

    The Joes thought Manziel was gonna be good as well. So I’d ignore both Sapp and the Joes when it comes to qbs

    It was more Schiano than Freeman in 2013….tough schedule, and a couple games Freeman had the game won only to see (Schiano Man’s) defense give up the booty and the rest is history. I bet the Glennon Mob is ready to call for Glennon again if we get off to another slow-start, lol. What people saw/see in Glennon, I have no clue….he’s a good back-up, and we’re lucky to have him, don’t get me wrong.

    I enjoyed watching Sapp kill QB’s for us. THAT’S IT. He’s not a particularly bright or educated man who gives a rat’s arse about the opinion of an egomaniac with poor judgement.

    Who anointed him as “unofficial team spokesman”? I listen to DB55 or Ronde.
    I’d pay attention to Warrick Dunn and Alstott…but Warren Sapp had ONE talent..playing football. He won the freaking ovarian lottery and was blessed with a fast twitch body on a giant frame…he didn’t even have to work that hard…his story is NOT compelling…other than he was BLESSED with freaking amazing talent and a HORRIBLE character and personality.

    I’d like to see him go back to Apopka and disappear!

    4 more days. I’m stoked!!!

    Sapp was a great player and always entertaining as a TV personality. No filter on the man. He has always said what he thought. I found that refreshing in a world where being PC is valued over truth. Sapp was fun even when he was serious. I miss him and Dandy Don Meredith too. Both were always good for a laugh and a gem or two about the game. Hard to beat that combination. One could be a jerk and the other was always a charmer, but they both made the game fun. Turn out the lights……the party’s over…

  12. BucsFanInTokyo Says:


    Spot on. Well said. I do not have to look up to guys that play as character role models. Not everyone can be like Lee Roy Selmon. Sapp kicked ass on the field and was much more entertaining than the NFL Network’s current line up of talking heads.

    Dandy Don was awesome on MNF!

  13. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Sapp was a great player, but as an analyst he’s not even worth listening to.

  14. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Not saying Sapp was accurate, just entertaining. You could always tell he loved playing and talking about the game. He loved his job. That’s what made him fun to watch.

  15. DemBoyzFromDaBay727 Says:


    “99”s opinions are more based on race.”

    LOL what the he’ll is that suppose to mean? He was biased toward Freeman who was half honky and Mike Glennon with you don’t get any whiter than that so where is your comment pointing towards?

    Let’s keep the racist card out of this l, Sapp has never been known to be racist. Cmon.

    “Joe loves Sapp, but Joe can’t ignore that Sapp moved all-in for Josh Freeman, too…”

    I think all of us did at first. I know I did.

    Freeman’s fall was unexpected for all of us. Yes, there were some that thought he wasn’t good enough…but even they felt he could at least get better over time, at least to a serviceable point.

    His meds messed him up, and I blame his doctor.

    My wife has epilepsy. She’s from Virginia, so we moved up there for a year and a half a while back. The doctors were so horrible that she went from having 7-10 minor seizures per month to 15-20 major ones per month. All because the doctors kept playing with her meds.

    We ended up having to move back to Florida, and it took surgery on her brain to repair the damage done during that period.

    I reveal this piece of personal information to illustrate how a single doctor, or even several doctors, can screw a person up…badly. They are told to cut meds/costs, when people’s lives depend on the right combination and dosage. They treat patients like lab rats.

    What we learned about Josh Freeman is that his doctor switched his medication, causing him to get suspended. That switch is also what caused behavior changes, because he was fine until his last year in Tampa (mentally). Josh trusted his doctor. The meds made him sluggish, sleepy and unfocused…causing him to over sleep and not perform well. Over time, the effect became worse…probably because his doctor adjusted/increased the dosage of the new med.

    Since then, he’s probably switched doctors and returned to his original meds, but the time spent on the bad one could have damaged him, like meds damaged my wife. Thankfully, her brain surgery fixed most of the issues…but Josh may not have that option.

    It’s a really sad story.

  17. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    I agree. “White boy” here…and I’ve never…NEVER…seen or heard Warren make racist remarks.

    If he hates on anyone, or bullies anyone, it is equally distributed, lol.

    “Sapp was a great player, but as an analyst he’s not even worth listening to.”

    I liked him. Preferred him. A Sapp – Gruden teamup would be awesome.

    By the same token, I can’t stand Jim Rome.

    Maybe its because Rome talks smack he can’t backup. Sapp talks smack and CAN back it up.

    I still remember that instance when Rome ran his mouth to the wrong player and the player dove across the table and started beating on him.

  19. Owlykat Says:

    Loved Sapp as a player and he was entertaining on TV but he is no better a judge of talent than Lovie and he has bad character issues.

  20. Mike Johnson Says:

    My dad always said, Old no 99 will take you home everytime (Couse he was referring to brother Jack Daniel no 9) Hate him or not, Sapp has earned the right to comment on our Bucs. Oh how we long for another no 99 type player for our Bucs. Man could dominate a game and turn its tide.
