Hargreaves Gets His Helmet Ripped Off

May 7th, 2016

HargreaveshelmetThere’s no contact allowed in rookie minicamp, so why was first-round pick Vernon Hargreaves’ helmet ripped off his head this afternoon?

Of course, there’s no instant replay for Joe and the rest of the media to watch. But Joe can say Hargreaves, playing inside, jumped a short route and snatched a pass out of the air with an impressive burst on the hard-thrown ball from tryout QB Phillip Ely.

The receiver kept fighting for the ball and Hargreaves ended up getting mauled, mugged and molested on his way to the turf. His helmet was ripped off but he held on.

Dirk Koetter liked the result, so he said after practice.

“Vernon Hargreaves made a beautiful interception on an option route out there. Quarterback was a little late and he cut in front of it, made a nice play, but there’s guys making nice plays on both sides of the ball and we just have to temper everything with just helmets on,” Koetter said.

That’s what you get when you ask guys to play pretend football but still compete for their dream jobs. Regardless, everyone is healthy and it was a good clean practice.

    Who was the WR?

    Hopefully he pisses a lot of WRs off.

    Man dismiss the a-hole that mugged my dawg. Send this brainiac to the dolphins camp.

    Get Ready Bucs fans for VH3 to fight like that for Every pass thrown his way.

  6. SB with Jameis Says:

    The one thing I can promise from 3 years of watching this kid is….If he fails it Will Not be for lack of confidence, compassion, and hard work. He has all that in Spades. He is going to give Pewter and Red ALL he has!!

    On a different note, R.I.P Mrs. Shakur.

    Sorry about the link Joe. I am not trying to usurp or upset you. Just a sad day for the Tupac listeners for the last three decades.

  9. Tom Edrington Says:

    When I saw the headline, I thought someone stole VHIII’s head-gear ……

    Dude she died like Monday night… Welcome to this week! Lol

  11. Jjbuc Says:

    Hey Nole- no way, keep that WR that is willing to fight for that ball on a bad throw by his QB, we need that around here, right??

    SB with Jameis

    I was just thinking about Her & Assata earlier – thank you for bring that up


    Rest in Peace Mrs. Shakur

  13. SB with Jameis Says:

    @LUV…..good to C u man. I hope all is well with you and yours. I don’t look at the National news much up here. Only Buc’s sites on my computer daily. We don’t even have cable or satellite. Just keeping it as real as I can in this rural Paradise!

  14. SB with Jameis Says:

    Going to watch Capt. America: Civil War fellas. Peace out. And GO BUCS!

  15. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Dag bro I’m really out of touch I had no idea she passed. Funny thing is I was sippin a liitle Henny about an hour ago. For no reason at all I poured out some. Guess something wanted me to pay a tribute without my knowing as to why. Pac 4Ever my favorite all time. One of my greatest idols when I was teen-ager.

  16. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Jbuc Its one thing to fight for a ball its another thing to be beaten by a superior football player and grab his head gear and hang on to it until it comes off the man’s head.

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This is the time of year that no news is good news…..we don’t need any freak injuries or “incidents” from any of our players….

  18. Dave Says:

    Exactly. Keep that WR around fighting for a job.
    And kudos to VH3

  19. Jjbuc Says:

    Nole- I do agree, but Joe reported late throw, not that WR was beaten. In my eyes, he was fighting to save his QB and he doesn’t care it was our 1st rounder, nobody is going to punk his QB. That shows heart, also ahows he is not in awe of first rounder, no one is gonna take way his chance to make it. I love it. Now come July/August…things become different.

  20. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    The thing is jbuc I’ve never seen that before in my life. A WR snatch CB helmet off. I wouldn’t care if it was against undrafted free agent. My question would be “what exactly are you doing bro”.

  21. SB with Jameis Says:

    “Achieving a 15 yard penalty is what the WR was doing Nole.

  22. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    SB I swear you beat me to that. I swear I was about to pose that question bro.

  23. Buccos Says:

    So glad we finally got a Gator to take over our defense. We got Miles running offense and special teams but a Gator is going to take this defense back to the promised land. Go Gators!!

  24. Buccos Says:


  25. Buc1987 Says:

    Yes, yes the gators have been just so successful these past few years. So glad we got a gator. Let’s get more of them. No your team does not deserve a capital G gators fans.

    Please improve our secondary. Most importantly…. our pass rush first, because that’s all I really care about right now with this team.

  26. SB with Jameis Says:

    Half of the ‘G’ators secondary went in the first round this yr 87. Im sure that is over your head but I expect that from myopic Seminole fans like yourself. Tabor and Maye will both go in the second round next yr so ask yourself what is ‘successful’ for a team’s defense.

  27. SB with Jameis Says:

    Tabor and Maye will both go in the First round next yr”
    Dam Jack Daniels typing on a Sat. nite!!

  28. ManzielMadness Says:

    LOL Nole or not… The UF Defense has always been good. FSU has done well since Fisher took over, lets wait and see what Mac can do with a real qb.

  29. SB with Jameis Says:

    OK……..in my non-defense, who drinks on a Saturday night? I am a true animal. Wait…………….let’s make sense of that.

  33. MadMax Says:

    Feeling you with all of that 87….lets see. I’ll tell you though, Ive got a good feeling about this kid. And you know how much I am critical and how I scrutinize. This kid will fight for us.

  34. MadMax Says:

    Btw 87, as always I got your back. Lets chill people and try not to get too personal. I LUV everyone on here….especially LUV…..

  35. MadMax Says:

    Man, were you guys posting about Prince passing? Sorry, im late to the thread, but I grew up on him and that one impacted me, Glen Frey also. I have my personals too Ive lost just this year. Is what it is, we’ll get through or join them.

  36. Luther Says:

    Exactly @MadMax…Prince was way bigger than Tupac and Biggie put together.

  37. McClorasMaddenDaddy210 Says:

    Lol easy @Luther
    Your namesake was the greatest of all time
    I’m QUITE sure @NoS-BoS is speaking truth here, as far as rap…tighten up
    YO JOE!
    GO BUCS!!!

  38. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Daddy210 I couldn’t have said it any better bro.😊

  39. Howard Cosell Says:

    VH3 = Darelle Revis v2.0

    Am I homering out? We’ll see when the season starts and receivers have to deal with the Florida boy. He’ll make you hangout, just you and him, on a tiny tropical island in a no-fly zone.

    Glad to see VH already rolling like a solid 1st round pick.

  40. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I think this pup gone be special Cosell,feet and hips are so fluid. Couple that wit a mean @$$ vertical. And a swag to match. Yea I can sniff and smell some of that Revis spit.

  41. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I just can’t understand how some can’t see how crucial this defense is about to be. When you have at least one premier CB that changes the entire dynamic of your defesne. Add in Mr. Hayes and his new star pupil Spawn man we about to be hell on some people. These young gunz about to make the LVDs and GMCs of the world jobs so much more easier.

  42. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Its why I choose not to compare this team in any way to the team lets say that won the superbowl. Why,because this team is about to be explosive on both sides of the ball. I’m saying it now in two season’s we will be the bully team of the entire league yo.

  43. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    At least the WR fought for the ball. Yes, in this case it may have been a penalty, but at least the WR has heart and isn’t lazy.

  45. DavidBigBucFan Says:

    A receiver fightjng for the ball is what we need not watching the ball go right into the defenders hands then run off off complaining about some perceived interference. Hargreaves jumping routes is a great start.

  46. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Sealed and delivered Bonzai☺

  47. DemBoyzFromDaBay727 Says:

    Sorry Nole Fans you’ve might 9f had the better all around team lately but NOT a better defense. The gators D has dominated the SEC the last three years. And sorry LUVMYBUCS but we’re talking about this decade. We had the best secondary in the nation two years In a row.

    it must be nice playing in the soft @$$ ACC. I would love to see how the Noles would fare playing opponents like LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M and Tennessee every year instead of cream puffs every year.

    And just like @MANZIELMADNESS said, let’s see what coach Mac can do now that he finally has a QB. The rivalry will be renewed very soon. Can’t wait to Gator chomp on sum Seminoles…. <<<fsu
