Banking On The Bucs

May 17th, 2016
Bullish on Bucs.

Bullish on Bucs.

If you stay away from the projections of the numberscrunchers, there are a lot of positive vibes floating around the Interwebs about the Bucs and the 2016 season.

In some ways, if feels odd.

One such person who believes the Bucs are on the cusp of something great is popular sports radio and television personality Adam Schein. In a question-and-answer session hosted by the NFL — video style! — Schien fielded a question about the Bucs and a wild card in 2016.

You can view Schein’s response below. In short, he believes the best move Team Glazer made in years was giving Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht full control. Lovers of Coach My Scheme may want to put their fingers in their ears, however.

    LOL!!!! Somewhere BucBonzai is crying!!!! And just wait Bucs fans, We will all get a better picture from the players of what a Fiasco (described by the Incompetent one’s own players) the two years have been!!!! Once they see a real coaching and scheme that put them in position to win, they will start taking shots at coach my scheme during training camp!!!!!!!

    “Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the sleepers of the NFL”

    Gotta love that!
    Great commenting Adam Schien! And I agree Joe, it’s weird getting respect nationally. Bucs fan will have to get use to that. But won’t have any problems doing so I’m sure of.

    A wasp should take a shot at your upper lip!’ Every freaking post, tell us something we don’t know! Like I’m gonna take my head out my ass and not vote D TRUMP!

  4. Tampa Tony Says:

    Hmmmm I wanna believe but there are still a lot of questions about this team

    1-Can Jameis improve his accuracy and and decision making?

    2-Do the Bucs have enough offensive weapons?

    3-Can Mike Smith get this defense playing well enough to protect leads and not be awful?

    4-How will Koetter handle being a head coach?

    5- How do the young players progress in year 2?

    6-7 wins is what I’d expect as I don’t see the Bucs doing enough to help Jameis

    @realist….we’ll see…GO BUCS!!!

    Are you worried about Trump because you may have to get a job… Don’t worry Trump won’t be able to do away with all the handouts immediately… it’s really too bad though.

    Just getting incompetent Lovie smith and his unqualified Frineds and Family Staff out of town is good for a 2 to 4 game improvement. I’d like to believe the bucs have a shot at a playoff spot but WR is in bad shape in a big way. We don’t know which evans will show up, VJAX is old and slow, Murphy is a bum who should not even make the team. Humprhies and Bell are unproven projects and somewhere a grocery store manager has he eyes on Dontae Dye for when the CFL boots him.

  7. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    I really hope we get some WR help. Washington just released Andre Roberts. He could be a solid WR3.

    Don’t worry Trump won’t be able to do away with all the handouts immediately… it’s really too bad though..
    Yes! Let us hope if he gets elected he will do away with the corporate handouts sooner rather than later. No more billions in tax cuts for the petroleum industries, no more tax cuts for those folks making millions. Yes sooner than later please.
    I’ve been working since I was 13 I just hit 50 so please do not tell me I will need to get a job.

    Great News we are getting National sport news love! Now we need to earn that love.

  9. BigHogHaynes Says:

    @tmaxcon: since you got my name right I’ll address your concern #1 Trump is in my opinion just a Jack-Ass a rhetorical Jack-Ass, now for me I’m retired sir, for a working stiff I proudly say I only had four jobs in my life after a one year stint in collage, my last job was with FEDX (fork lift operator) put in 9 years there, so no sir I don’t fear Trump! It amasses me that when white people talk about our government getting rid of free stuff and hand outs that they only see Black people standing in line!! Such a hypocritical statement!

  10. Buc since '74 Says:

    Trump, Hillary, Mr. Magoo – puppet heads. The most powerful person on earth? We’ll never know their names. The President does NOT run this country. Men in Black run this country – or Free Masons if you will.

    And I digress. Just put an aggressive, attacking style defense in place and let’s roll. Oh – and please tell me Licht is looking for that veteran speed receiver.

  11. The Buc Realist Says:

    Wow, A national media member EXPOSES coach my scheme, and what does bighogheinous do??? He panics like lovie at halftime and pulls out the card then baits by painting everyone with his politics brush!!!

  12. Buccfan37 Says:

    Great that others are noticing and giving the Bucs some shout outs, not damning ones but positive ones. See, the hyper enthusiastic Buc fans have backup. Trump who? Oh yeah, the Bucs playing their winning trump card, the blasting trump-et waking people up to the former Barney Fife deputy Bucs morphing into the new sheriff in town busting NFL perps and bagging some wins, more than you think.

  13. Rrsrq Says:

    Read somewhere that said the question mark is Dirk first time head coach in the NFL, this is why I think he made a really good hire of Mike Smith who has the experience he can lean on, but it’s funny nobody is saying that about Adam Gase in Miami

  14. Bucsfanman Says:

    Preach it ’74!!! It hasn’t mattered in quite some time.
    I can’t read the post but I assume, based on comments, that it is disparaging to Lovie and complimentary to Koetter and Co.
    Lovie is gone. Koetter has not coached a single NFL game as HC. There’s a lot to prove one way or the other.

    But politics? Really?!

  15. Wausa Says:

    I do think this team has some holes that need to be addressed:

    Safety(2), WR(1), DT(1), SLB(1) and we probably need to upgrade our center position also.

    However, I think most underestimate how large of a step Jameis is going to take this year. To put things into perspective he could be starting his last year at Florida State in 2016.

    I’d be surprised if the Bucs are not in position to make the playoffs once we hit December

  16. The Buc Realist Says:

    I loved how Adam Schein just laid the lumber to coach my scheme in that 30 second video!!!! True professional Mr. Schein!!!!!!

  17. BigHogHaynes Says:

    I’ll admit I hit a card in my pocket, but Joe many do you have //TheBucRealBigot//

  18. BigHogHaynes Says:

    But how many do you have // TheBucRealBigot //

  19. The Buc Realist Says:


    Maybe, Just maybe, coach my scheme was just a bad coach!!! has that thought came a crossed you??? Or does it make more sense that National media and thousands of other just have hidden agenda’s according to you!!!!

    By the way, it was funnier when BucBonzai used “The Buc Racist” last offseason!!! I am sure other will agree as well!!! LOL!!!!

  20. BigHogHaynes Says:

    @TheBucRealBigot// I believe in freedom to think as I please. I never called you a racist, and let me state this the two years LOVIE was here his teams were below sub/par. I’ve stated that before, but no I would not call him a bad coach, he just didn’t get it done here!

  21. GhostofTedford Says:

    At Bucsrealist and Tmaxcon.

    People like BigHogHaynes do not look at the overall body of work, they see an opportunity to push a perceived social injustice. If lovie was white he would be in full agreement with both of you.

    Go ahead BigHogHaynes, refute my statement.

  22. GhostofTedford Says:

    It’s been 25 minutes Hoggie, what are you doing, conferring with Al and Jesse on how to respond?

  23. The Buc Realist Says:

    I just have to tell everyone, I have watched this video at least 10 times!!! and have broke out laughing everytime!!!!! And Adam Schein completely hit the nail on the head!!! Its like he had a source inside the locker room!!!!

  24. BigHogHaynes Says:

    @GhostofTedford: I’m here to answer all questions, now his body of work here in Tampa, he didn’t get it done, but was he headed in the right direction, if you change Coaching-Staffs with a 6 win team and say they are going to be a play-off team this year, then I summit LOVIE at the very least be given some credit for the young talent on this team, I’ll say it again no he didn’t get it together in the two years he was here. By the way if LOVIE were white I don’t think I would have to worry about him getting a third year. Sorry I was late with my answer but I had to make a run to the free-stuff store !!

  25. Kevin Schmidt Says:

    Obama won’t let there be an election if Trump has a large lead. He’s done way to much to get things how they are…why you think he’s letting terrorists into the country…he’s preparing to start war on American soil. I will be SHOCKED if SH!T doesn’t hit the fan so he can declare a state of emergency, but I’m just a conspiracy theorist.

  26. Kevin Schmidt Says:

    In other news…GO BUCS!!!

  27. BigHogHaynes Says:

    So before Obama became President, and the country was going to hell in the fast lane, what were your thoughts then! Just asking?

  28. Buccaneers Says:

    @BigHogHaynes-You do make some good points. But what’s the deal with all this political mumbo jumbo? This is sports dude, an escape from all the garbage in the world. Mixing the two is very unbecoming when there is no direct corilation.

    Of course you may say whatever you wish but I do think your opinions would be more receptive if you just stuck with the topics at hand.

  29. Kevin Says:

    The whole world is going to hell in the fast lane, but at least 8 years ago I didnt feel like everyone except americans were the biggest thing america was worried about. We want to help everyone else before we fix us??? Stupid. I want more security in our country. Not saying a good job was being done 9plus years ago but its just unthinkable where its gone since then. I want someone whos going to take action and stop giving free handouts to anyone who wants to run over here and plants some seeds. Frustrating.

  30. BigHogHaynes Says:

    @Buccaneers: going back over this particular post I see where it can be said that I started trying to push a political issue (truth or lie), I get your point and it will be well taken

  31. The Buc Realist Says:

    Great!!! Now we can get back to discussing football, and how lovie is a buffon!!!!

  32. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’m a conspiracy realist too.

  33. Mike Johnson Says:

    I gotta give it to you’s joe. You know how to..bait’em up and feed. Just hope you feed’em if the..golden boy does not deliver. There seems to be a couple..Lovie bashing threads per day to keep readers riled up and feasting.
    Old Buc Realist wets his pants every time Lovie is mentioned. I notice there are about 5 posters here who..Light up every time Lovie’s name is mentioned.
    Its like..Gotcha back Joe..we’ll take it from here. Guess you guys won’t stop until..all the meat is completely eaten off of old Lovie Dubbie’s Bones. You are almost there. So Feast on!
