    Just jumped out the COPO and walked in the building. Mr. Licht a.k.a crater size b@!!$.

    Great NEWS Joe!! COMPETITION. Its what our Bucs need more of in training camp. The more the merrier. Just means a lot of people are gonna have to work there tails off. And we all know, somebody outta nowhere will shine and make the team. I absolutely love it. Let loose the dogs of War. it will all sort itself out.

  3. Pickgrin Says:

    Good luck 2016 UDFAs. A few of these guys are likely to make it. Maybe just 1 or 2 – perhaps as many as 4 or 5.

    The longest shot not listed here…our chances at a winning season this year. Hopefully this year, as soon as GMC gets injured, everyone will FINALLY STOP living in this current fantasy where It’s ok to draft a kicker in the secoind round when you only have 3 DT’s on ur teams roster…and ALL OF THEM FINISHED LAST YEAR INJURED. Wonder why Carolina’s D line never has a drop-off no matter who’s on the field…oh yeah, they actually draft one each year b4 the 3rd round, and then also will turn around and take our cast-offs and use them to get sacks against us…It’s A BUCS LIFE

  5. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    Buc4lyfe79, you sound like you want GMC to get injured so you can say you were right. Calm down, enjoy the spring (summer?) and try to enjoy the time and build-up leading to football. I know, it’s hard for me too.

  6. BucFan20 Says:

    Welcome and Good Luck to all.

    You are the little train that made it up the hill saying “I think I can’t…I think I can’t.” Oh but that train never got out of the station eh.

    Everybody is entitled to their opinion but when it’s as negative as yours people might remember and when the Bucs win and Aguayo saves a couple games with FG’s you realize we’ll expect you to man up and admit you know nothing!

    If the Buc’s don’t win 9 I’ll be back to admit my mistake.

  8. SCBucsFan Says:

    One of them is the Auburn RB that chose to enter the draft early because his mom is homeless. Hope he at least makes the practice squad.

    I am not defending Buc4lyfe79 but GMC has been hurt or plays hurt every single year… It’s not if GMC will be hurt it’s when. By playing in the pro bowl and not resting his injury or getting it fixed he proved that it’s all about him and not the team. GMC is just a pay check cashing smiling face who disappears when his teams needs him most in 4th qtrs or on 3rd down. Those are the facts…

    Hawaiian buc save your defense it’s tiresome and full of holes.

    Wifey said I woke up this morning screaming “Charles Johnson, Charles Johnson” man I think it’s time to lay off JBF for a while. I guess it’s better for me to wake up like that than Jameis. Smh

  11. buc89 Says:

    Tmaxcon, couldn’t disagree more with you about GMC. The games I’ve seen, he plays 110% every player like a true leader.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    “Hawaiian buc save your defense it’s tiresome and full of holes.”

    lol Classic!

  13. buc89 Says:


  14. Buc1987 Says:

    buc89…watch him again. There is NO leader in him. None, zilch, zip, nada.

  15. Head Ball Coach Dirk Says:

    Tmax. According to that logic then lvd kwon Clinton and everyone else is garbage on the defense and collecting checks as well. Where was lvd on third downs and the game on the line?…when you give me one example we can also collect an example of gmc coming thru here and there also.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying gmc is sapp but he’s top 4 at his position in the nfl and that is saying something. He’s not being dbl teamed on every play or anything but when the game is on the line and lovie is rushing only 4 then who do you think the o line will focus on?

    Now that we have a legit d coordinator that can actually devise and adjust a gameplan then maybe, just maybe it will creat more opportunities for our playmakers to come through.

    All these guys whining and crying need to get the bitter bears outta their butt and remain cautiously optimistic. It’s an exciting time to be a buc fan right now. We’ve been burned way too much in the past few years but with the coaches we have now and the players whom are excited and hungry it’s rather refreshing.

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    A UDFA kicker would be the longest shot…….

  17. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    Tmaxcon – My point is buc4lyfe just couldn’t wait to be proven right about this season being short on DTs, and almost seemed to be wishing injury on GMC serious enough to sideline him for the sake of being right.

    That’s a nightmare to most Buc fans – just didn’t seem to be for buc4lyfe, ijs.

    P.S. All NFL players play hurt, almost no regular starter plays 100% all year. It’s a rough sport. I’d say almost any of the commenters on here probably wouldn’t be able to tough it out an entire season on the team. Props to GMC for toughing it out. I hope he starts and plays most of the season as close to 100% as possible.

    Head Ball Coach Dirk

    GMC is not top 4 top 7 maybe but he’s paid like top 2 and plays like top 20… sorry being a nice guy does not make up for lack of production or making players around you better. it’s nothing but excuses for McCoy and they way he acted last year was a joke. Winston’s press conference was directed right at the former face of the franchise. Your in denial if you don’t think he’s been hurt or plays hurt every single year.

  20. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Dominique is Warhop’s nephew…so that should be good..he should be able to make the team..

    I personally like luke Rhodes..he’s very good with his new Buc fans on Twitter…even responds..I like him..

  21. tmaxcon Says:

    Ben the Ga Buc

    if he was really injured as bad as the excuse makers want to give him credit for he should NOT have played in the pro bowl. His injury excuse when right down the toilet the first snap he took in a meaning less game. He would have received his pro bowl bonus for just being selected to the meaningless event he did not have to play to get his bonus… selfish move on his part. a team guy would have not risked further injury in a meaningless game

  22. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    tmaxcon – maybe he just wanted to play some “postseason football.” Maybe he was feeling pretty good by the time the Pro Bowl was played. There was a bit of a layoff there. Or maybe he’s full of ish?

    Bottom line – GMC getting hurt where he has to be on the bench an extended amount of time is bad for the team – WAY WORSE than not spending a draft pick on a DT.

  23. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    2nd bottom line – who cares if GMC wants to play in the pro bowl or not? If a football player says he was playing hurt, in some capacity, I believe him.

  24. "That guy" Says:

    Look at the picture, that my friends is the face of a hustler.

  25. martinii Says:

    UFDA”s intrigue me. There is always a chance of getting a Michael Bennett or a Demar Dotson. I am surprised with the new rookie wage scale that so many undergraduates come out early. I read where 30 underclassman went undrafted. They are long shots now but about 26% of them will start on Sunday sometime in their career.

  26. Pittbucfan Says:

    It wasn’t drafting a k in the 2nd rd that bothered me, it was giving up 2 picks to go get him. Our depth is, well, not deep. We need all we can get. But I will say, a good kicking game can pull victory from the jaws of defeat. IMO.

  27. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Well, other than Roddy White, that’s all the news until August. I’m out.

  28. McClorasMaddenDaddy210 Says:

    Damn @PittBucfan
    Stop it man! How can you not understand that we traded our 3rd round pick to move back in the 2nd round by way of 9th to 11th
    Trade that have us a extra 4th round pick
    Damn it Jim we went from 3rd back to the 2nd
    Get it?
    Tighten up

  29. ElioT Says:

    Really, really, really needed another quality DT on this roster. If any one of our three current DTs (all were injured or on IR for the majority of 2015) gets injured in 2016, what are we going to do? Pull Bowers off the Golden Corral dish room?

    Seriously, those of you not concerned about this D-Line are f**king idiots and don’t know anything about football.

    I love Spence, but a 6’2″ 250lb rookie isn’t going to plug all the holes.

    I know it’s early but we are extremely thin on the interior of this defensive line and our ends are unproven, green, injury prone (Smith)

  30. ElioT Says:

    I’m sure Licht realizes this, I just wonder what the plan is. Passed on so many good DTs in this draft.

  31. Power Vapor Says:

    Tackle Dominique Robertson makes this team. Just checked his YouTube vids and proday. 6’5″ 305 lbs very strong and fluid in passblock. Could possibly play Guard.

  32. Seminole2374 Says:

    The giving up 2 picks for a K nonsense has to stop. It was 1 4th round pick and the BUCS entered the draft with 7 picks and exited with 7 picks. Aguayo was predicted to go as high as the 2nd round and as low as the 4th by most who projected him in the draft. He’s a once a generation kicker and his finishing as the NCAA all-time leader backs that up. He was better than Janikowski and that dude went 1st round. This isn’t some chump pick guys and gals. BUCS have lost games due to kicker issues.

    Fans may not like the depth on the DL, but if Licht, Koetter, DC and DL coaches all felt like what they have is good for this year, then not sure why the fans can’t get behind their team instead of bitching and complaining. Go BUCS!
