Koetter Runs Off ASJ

June 9th, 2016
Involuntary early day off from practice.

Involuntary early day off from practice.

Folks, when a talented second round draft pick is not considered a first-string player after two years in the NFL, it is either because he is playing behind an All-Pro or there is something else brewing.

Well, that brewing came to a head today for third-string tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Better known for his Capt. Morgan preening and fastballing a football out of the end zone when tackled short of the goal line than any play he made on the field, ASJ was run off the OTA practice field today at One Buc Palace per the fingertips of long-time Bucs beat writer Woody Cummings.

This is just unbelievable to Joe. Look, someone really, really, really has to have their head up their rear end to get run off of an OTA practice field and told to hit the showers. Joe can’t remember this ever happening in an OTA practice much less a real practice. Unreal!

Joe almost wonders if ASJ is now in danger of being sent home permanently by the Bucs. The only legitimate NFLer Joe can recall getting cut in OTAs is leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman by the Giants in 2014.

It seems ASJ’s head is wherever Freeman’s head is.

    Great, if he gets cut he will go to the patriots and be a in the hall of fame.

    But the dude is a baby, after looking at his twitter you can tell he is immature.

    Lets go Brate!

  2. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    I’m not shocked that ASJ is having issues, I’m shocked its RIGHT NOW. I hope he realizes this opportunity is close to ending but with a tweet that said “MOVING ON!!!!” I’m not sure he gets it.

  3. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Koetters weeding out all the “me guys”. Trade him for a 6th, lets go Brate!

  4. I know why Says:

    Is he Lovie’s fault or not? 8-24 must be lovie right? He’s the reason anything bad happened, right Realist? 2014 is turning out to be the worst year in Bucs draft and free agency ever. That’s saying a lot. Whew

  5. Obliviousone Says:

    You would hope this would serve as a wake up call for ASJ but clearly he doesn’t seem to get what it is to be a professional. From his antics on Twitter to his complete and utter lack of production on the field he seems to be his on worst enemy. I’d hate to lose someone with as much potential as he appears to have but if he isnt making the team better and isn’t putting in the work, how can you justify keeping him?

  6. Joe Says:

    Is he Lovie’s fault or not?

    There were significant signs before he was drafted he was going to be an interesting (ahem) selection that the Bucs were fully aware of. Can’t say anything more.

  7. tmaxcon Says:

    Where’s the asj defenders that were going off last week that he was not not a mentally weak punk.

  8. Clodhopper Says:

    Oh for effs sake. We’ve got something special brewing here and hes gonna be watching it from home knowing it was pure laziness that made him miss out.

    We all saw this crappy attitude when he posted his stupid Captain Morgan pic AFTER they chewed him out for it. Some dudes just can’t get out of their own way

    After he was told to hit the showers, ASJ started twittering. smh

    Tim Wright is still available, right?

    Where can we go to find out (ahem) what was so interesting?

  11. The Buc Realist Says:

    If The Incompetent one was still here, he would not have been sent off the field. And that was why there was no accountability the last 2 years!!!! And I bet JW3 clapped the loudest after ASJ87 hit the showers!!!!!

    I stand up and applaud Head Coach Koetter!!!! This is the wake up call!!!!! This is the Flag being planted!!!! Incompetence will no longer be tolerated!!!! And if Joe did the same with the commentors then ” i know why” would be sent away as well!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!! I could not be more proud at this moment!!!!!!

  12. Joe Says:

    Where can we go to find out (ahem) what was so interesting?

    ASJ would be one of the three sources. Can’t say the other two.

  13. 813bucboi Says:

    boy I tell you….dirk sure seems like he knows what he’ doing and I like it….games still have to be played and won but in my T.O. voice,” that’s my coach”…lol….hopefully asj has a Vernon Davis like wake up call, gets his act together and be the great player we all know he can be….GO BUCS!!!!

  14. Name Required Says:

    He has yet to show me anything of substance. Same with the Great Luke Stocker. What’s with keeping bad TEs on this team?

  15. Miko Says:

    trade…his name’s too long anyway 🙂

    Um, I don’t think that’s exactly JW3’s style.

  17. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Hopefully he gets his head straight and isn’t cut by the weekend. We need him to ball out this season.

  18. unbelievable Says:

    Joe we would all like to know what these pre draft sources were…. Or at least what the concerns were… I don’t remember any of that pre-draft.

    This is really disappointing though. We had lot’s of talk about his injuries and mental attitude (he’s only 23, right?) last week…

    I can forgive the injuries, after all it’s not like he’s trying to stay injured, and Lovie didn’t help him out with the fanbase by saying he was almost ready every single week.

    But you’re in the NFL now son, we’ll give you a season or 2 to grow up. But now it’s time to act like a man. If Koetter kicked him off the field, than this kid has attitude problems far worse than many of us thought. It’s too bad, he could be a monster on the field….

  19. 813bucboi Says:

    @realist…you just cant get enough of lovie….he must have skipped you in line while signing autographs…or maybe he braked on a yellow light and made you late for work….maybe your wife said he was cute….I mean damn….everyday its the same ole BS with you…you better hope and pray dirk doesn’t fall flat on his face…if so your head will be on a platter….GO BUCS!!!

  20. Joe Says:

    Hopefully he gets his head straight

    He’s now on his third year of making numbskull mistakes. Not sure that is going to change. Question is, how much more patience do the Bucs have? Guessing — just a guess — he gets this season to get his head screwed on straight but after today, who knows? He may not make it to his third season with the Bucs.

  21. Cobraboy Says:

    Unless he has an cranial-rectal implant reversal performed, he won’t be the first talented guy to severely underachieve in the NFL.

    Maybe a sit-down Come to Jeebuz meeting with Winston and some others are in order. The guy has way too much talent & physical skilz to pi$$ away…for his own sake if nothing else.

    Better to know the dealio now than in September…

    I also applaud Koetter demanding accountability with no excuses accepted.

  22. 813bucboi Says:

    @ben…I agree…realist has no clue…I bet when practice was over jameis was the first to talk to asj…not a hey man whats up talk…but a hey man get your head out of your a$$ we need you talk…GO BUCS!!!!

  23. Joe Says:

    Anyone ever notice al the videos and photos on social media of players hanging out together outside of One Buc, but rarely do you see ASJ with any teammates? Not sure if that is a snapshot or not.

  24. DB55 Says:

    Tim Wright is still available, right?
    Nope! He cleared waivers and then the Lions put him on IR. 🙁

  25. rayjay1122 Says:

    This guy is a bigger bust than Dolly Parton’s chest. Run the bum out of town!!! Vitale, Brate and even Stocker are all better than ASJ anyways. He is to the TE position what Freeman was to the QB position except Freeman did not live in the trainers room and at least wore a helmet on game days instead of a floppy hat and flip flops.

  26. The Buc Realist Says:

    @813bucboi and “ben the gabuc”

    This is what they call a “teaching moment”!!! after that door closed if JW3 and/or Head Coach Koetter and a quick lecture of why he was just removed, then that was a huge opportunity lost!!!!

    You will know your job!!! You will put in the work!!!! Mental mistakes will not be tolerated and you will not be on the field to commit them!!!!!

    if that was a game it would have been 2nd and 15!!!!!! Unacceptable!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!! Go accountability!!!!!

  27. Clodhopper Says:

    “ASJ would be one of the three sources. Can’t say the other two”

    Three people involved and no one leaked? That has to be a record for the best kept secret in the 21st century!!

    I thought ASJ and Jameis were tight from the beginning. Maybe not the case anymore?

  29. destro44 Says:

    I’d love to see ASJ get his head together, but honestly I think shipping him out for a bag of football’s might send the message to the team that coach won’t stand for this kind of player. Of we do cut bait I think Stocker, Brate, and Vitale are a good group of team first guys.

  30. rayjay1122 Says:

    ASJ did not know what he is doing because he was probably arguing with fans on social media when he should have been studying his playbook. The guy really upsets me because he has the physical tools to be a great TE but you can’t compensate for a lack of common sense, durability and heart. That pretty much summarizes ASJ.

  31. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    You sound like Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket. Hopefully you are aware that this kind of treatment may work well on young soldiers in boot camp that need discipline, but it’s the exact opposite way you treat hard-working NFL players.

    If you need to say that kind of stuff to an NFL player, he really doesn’t belong on your team, or anyone else’s.

  32. Mike Johnson Says:

    As I’ve said before, ASJ will be on a short lease this season. Its produce or go fishing. Same with Bell. If a player cannot stay healthy in the NFl his durability/suitability are all in question. The best ability in this league is..Availability..and production.

  33. Joe Says:

    I thought ASJ and Jameis were tight from the beginning. Maybe not the case anymore?

    Thought so too. If you’ve seen a picture or video of them together since January on Twitter or Instagram or Periscope, please let Joe know.

  34. tmaxcon Says:

    those of you that are using the word trade need to wake up. An injury prone mental midget who has done NOTHING in the league has ZERO trade value

  35. tmaxcon Says:

    in this pathetic world of gender neutrality maybe ASJ just needs a hug and to be allowed to use the Womens restroom

  36. University of Seffner Says:

    ASJ will probably be released in a matter of hours.

  37. DB55 Says:

    I haven’t seen them together at all lately.

    And I thought today would be a boring day. #drama

  38. DallasBuc Says:

    That draft guru Licht’s 2014 class is looking less and less impressive. Better hope Mike Clayton Evans sprouts some hands with a grip. Maybe now some of you will slow down and gain some healthy skepticism of our GM. This guy is hardly proven. Your chances of drafting well go up when the stars of incompetence line up to give you the first overall pick at a time when shamefully Trash McCown is your current starter and Winston is available.
    Nothing is proven in Licht’s record.

  39. destro44 Says:


    Seriously, we traded Tim Wright twice. Other teams will take a flyer on an obviously talented physically guy. I’d imagine a conditional 6th rd pick could easily be had, but if the guy is a football cancer I’d bee happy to trade him for a Nacho vender.

  40. Pickgrin Says:

    Get it together ASJ. Hopefully this incident is just a blip on the radar and the guy will take it to heart and get “serious” about football. Bad sign to start year 3 though considering that he’s only been available for less than half the games played over his 2 years in the league. He’s had plenty of “extra” time to study his playbook considering it was handed to him about 16 months ago.

  41. tmaxcon Says:


    I am a licht fan but you are right that draft class is looking pretty damn pathetic depending on what happens to Mike Clayton this season. Now that 13 has a proven WR coach and not an unqualified personal assistant I am hopeful that coupled with the incompetent and ignorant lovie smith gone 13 will improve.

  42. Pawel Says:

    On ASJs twitter pic is that druglord, cant think of his name right now. Poor dude hanging out with Josh Freemans friends.

  43. Another J Says:

    Can we pick up Nick O’Leary from the Bills practice squad?

  44. JonBuc Says:

    If only Ass-J played half as well or hard as Wright. Wright was a former undrafted receiver …this turd was a very high 2nd-rounder. Hopefully the second round swoon of the last decade or so won’t happen to Spence or the kicker. * Wright actually has a torn ACL I believe…

  45. Bigbucben Says:

    Asj has until the end of training camp to get his ish together. Why do you think they drafted Vitale? Vitale needs to beef up a little bit, but his potential looks nice.

  46. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I love it.

    I have hopes that ASJ will turn things around, and maybe Koetter doing this to him will open his eyes. ASJ is on his last opportunity with this team. I would think he’d be doing his very best.

    Makes me wonder if something else is going on with him that we don’t know about.

    On the other hand…Koetter is REALLY impressing me. Him doing this at this point in the off season sets an example. He wants the best from his players. He wants them prepared.

  47. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Another J Says
    “Can we pick up Nick O’Leary from the Bills practice squad?”

    I would love to have Nick O’Leary, but we really don’t need him. “Superback” can play tight end better than ASJ.

  48. destro44 Says:


    I’m willing to give Licht a pass on that draft class for one reason, when he was hired he used Dominick’s staff because there wasn’t time to hire and then scout before the draft. Perhaps he was working of the same Intel the “rock star” used. Could explain the failures of many picks from the previous years as well.

  49. Louis Says:

    Is there aa way to suspend him w out pay, and retain his rights? No pay check will fix his attitude…he is effectively holding out, as such no pay! Maybe his baby attitude just needs a spanking after all

  50. LakeLandBuc Says:

    A LOT of Jason Licht draft picks will fall by the wayside. During the 2014 draft I wanted Aaron Donald in the 1st and Allen Robinson in the 2nd. Oh well

  51. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Hate to make comparisons but ASJ reminds me of Kellen Winslow Jr. with his immaturity level, Joe.

  52. biff barker Says:

    Often coaches leave these “getting the mind right” matters to the vets Problem is Joe, if he’s the dirtbag in the corner, the senior guys in the locker room might rather see him go then stay.

    Not good.

  53. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Not even going to speculate if ASJ is into Winslow Jr’s drug level…

  54. Buccaneers Says:

    Bold move by Koetter and it’s about time. Jenkins had no business on the field on that final game last year, yet he was out there and showed why he didn’t deserve to be. I keep hearing the word accountability in this thread and there has been none on this team for a while now.

    Koetter still has much to prove but demanding accountability is a great place to start especially with ASJ.

    Yet some of y’all need to calm down about wanting to cut or trade ASJ. If he can’t man up and act like a pro then yes. Cutting him now would send a bad message and vibe to the rest of team.

    A HC should set a tone that players are expected to learn the system and give full effort. And they should also set a tone that they will support each player. Cutting a player after one mistake(under his watch) would just make Dirk look like a b**ch to the rest of the team.

    Hopefully Koetter is sitting at his desk later waiting with some great advice for Jenkins and hoping that ASJ takes it upon himself to seek out his coach.

  55. Buccaneers Says:

    I’ve stuck up for Lovie Smith a few times because there are a lot of inaccurate critisims flying around about him.

    This is a situation here, however, that highlights a major reason why he deserved to get spit canned. He let ASJ bring nonsense onto the field on Sunday’s. Lovie never benched him which was well overdo. ASJ is a perfect sample of Lovies lack of accountability but the torrent amount of mistakes show that the lack of accountability stemmed much further then just Jenkins.

    I’ve got a wait see attitude about Dirk. This is one of the first real things us fans can look at to judge Dirks style and demeanor and I freaking love it……..I’m so sick and tired of seeing garbage, lack of fundamental, football only to see it go unaccounted for and only repeat itself. I trust that if any one player is sending us to the medicine cabinet for the pepto on Sunday’s……that the problem will be corrected or the player benched and we won’t have to suffer through the broken record like has been for years now.

  56. Papa578 Says:

    Trading this rascal would send a strong message. Get the mind right and the arse will follow.

  57. Bucsfanman Says:

    “in this pathetic world of gender neutrality maybe ASJ just needs a hug and to be allowed to use the Womens restroom”

    Classic! LMFAO!

  58. 813bucboi Says:

    @realist….careful now….we all know what happened to schiano when he tried to teach accountability and discipline….

    funny how now that lovie is gone your saying player need to be accountable….that was the case last year but the lovie bash gang always blamed the hc for players penalty….the problem is/was some of the players are either immature or lack high iq football knowledge….and a little of both….GO BUCS!!!

  59. Buccaneers Says:

    No papa. Trading him would send a bad message. A team is almost just like a family. ASJ has some close friends on the team. Trading him over one mistake is going to upset some of the players on the team. It would send a message that Dirk doesn’t know how to handle problems. Any player or any employee in this would wants to feel like their boss has their back. Dirk needs to support ASJ and all his players here……..not just get to scalping them after a single error.

  60. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Let the coaches coach…..that’s finally happening……Koetter will either make ASJ the great player he can be….or he’ll bench him until he is…..either way, I don’t think he will be cut. There certainly would be a trade market for a player with 2 year’s left on his rookie contract.

  61. 813bucboi Says:

    @buccaneers…I think lovie holding asj out of the line up for weeks after he was medically cleared falls under the bench category…the only thing lovie would say is that he’s not ready or he’s getting there….he wasn’t ready mentally…that’s why he was held out for so long…and when he returned, he show he potential but still acted like a child…as he is now…

    lovie is not the type to throw a player, especially a young player under the bus….for all we know lovie could’ve chewed him out behind closed doors….GO BUCS!!!!

  62. The Buc Realist Says:


    But coach my scheme did not!!! After all those weeks of saying that they will fix penalties week after week, the players said that no emphasis was ever taken!! that is was just business as usual!!!! Players said this!!!!!!!!



  63. simpleasthat Says:

    what a jerk.

  64. Bucsfanman Says:

    I love how this conversation “devolved” from ASJ getting the boot to the eternal Lovie-fest! Lovie’s not here anymore!
    Accountability AND consequences! These guys are professionals and we need to stop treating them like babies and more like men. Case in point……ASJ.

  65. Buccaneers Says:

    Bucboi-Go back and watch the last five games from last year…..Wheter or not ASJ started is invalid. In each of those games Jenkins gave great reason to not be given a snap in the next. Yet, he was on the field in the Chicago game,for example, only to dance like a fool for a meaningless losing touchdown with 11 seconds left……….in front of an embarrassed dejected home crowd none the less.

    This continued game after game with no relent and, seemingly, no care from the HC. He had no business on the field for any of those games unless his antics were a thing of the past. The antics continued and personally I didn’t care to root for him. The HC is responsible to present a product to himself, the owners and the fans that we can……at the very least……not be disgusted by.

  66. Buccaneers Says:

    Bucsfanman-Typicall I don’t like to bring up Lovie unless it’s warranted. In this case I do feel that Lovie Smith is important.

    That’s because Dirks discipline of ASJ shows a major difference between himself and our former HC. It kinda brings some light to some of the differences we can expect to see on this team from what they have been in the past year.

  67. Buccaneers Says:

    At the exact moment that Joe submitted this article was the same moment the trash an arrived at my home for collection……..Not a coindence!

  68. tmaxcon Says:


    Today’s society frowns on treating men like men especially masculine men.

  69. Bucsfanman Says:

    I get you Buc but I’m trying so hard not to dwell on it. Yes, there is a difference. It’s a BIG reason he’s gone.

  70. Bucsfanman Says:

    I need a tissue!

  71. 813bucboi Says:

    @Realist….so your point is?….they both got canned…you prove me right….the issue is some of the players…

    @buccaneers….Jenkins has nothing to do with it….you said lovie would’ve never benched asj…I stated lovie did bench him by leaving him inactive for 4 weeks….

    lovie tried banks, verner, moore, Jennings, Jenkins and jude….there was no one else to play that would’ve gotten better production….that why we signed 2 FA’s cb’s, drafted the best pure cover cb and signed a bunch of UDFA’s….obviously licht saw it was the talent level that needed to to addressed….who was playing so good that you would’ve left in?….our best cb last year was sterling moore…beside him everyone else was trash and it wasn’t because of the system….GO BUCS!!!!

  72. Buccaneers Says:

    Bucboi-ASJ disgraced himself and the team week after week to finish out last year. Lovie made the decision to keep letting Jenkins trot onto the field and embarrass himself and fans…….IMO it was a mistake and Lovie should have kept him off the field as discipline. I don’t care about the weeks he was inactive. The lack of disciple towards Jenkins antics on the field is a completely different scenario then when he was an inactive after his injury. Lovie did not hold him accountable for his foolishness on the field, it’s basically a fact.

    There’s plenty of coaches in the NFL that would not have allowed ASJ to continue with the arctics he displayed week in and week out at the end of last season.

  73. DB55 Says:

    The real question is, did Koetter order a code-red? Did you Koetter? DID YOU ORDER THE CODE-RED?

  74. 813bucboi Says:

    @buccaneer….he was a healthy scratch from the line up because he was benched….after he continued to act stupid that’s when we started to see brate….lovie made the decision to bench asj after he was completely healthy for 4 weeks….lovie benched him for 4weeks….

    benching is when a player is completely healthy and the coach decides not to allow the player to touch the field whether its for improper behavior or the game plan….just because lovie didn’t walk up to asj while he was sitting on the bench and tell him to hit the shower on national tv during a game doesn’t mean he didn’t get benched….the man didn’t see the field and everyone wanted to know why….

    it funny because people like @realist had their panties in a bunch and calling lovie incompetent for not playing him after he was healthy….now we see why…lovie isn’t as incompetent as some make him out to be…GO BUCS!!!

  75. 813bucboi Says:

    @buccaneer….we can agree that asj is very childish, immature and needs to grow up to help this team because the kid has talent…but I rather have brate who is not as athletic as asj but works hard puts the team first and is serious about his profession….GO BUCS!!!

  76. cmurda Says:

    I’m not sure which part bothers me the most. The fact that ASJ hasn’t locked down the #1 TE position easily or the fact that the media got a hold of the fact that ASJ was run off for “not knowing what he was doing”. Koetter clearly sees a problem between ASJ’s ears. Quite frankly, I’m not surprised. We are that much closer to being able to officially label ASJ a bust. I question a few things with ASJ including his passion for football. He doesn’t seem to be committed. I won’t blame injuries on the guy. Sure, if he isn’t committed to conditioning, that could assist in leading to injury but it’s a stretch to blame injuries on ASJ. That’s the only free pass he gets. It’s also extremely interesting that Koetter would be so blunt as to say he’s getting run off the field for being in la la land. Koetter might be saying not to read too much into this but I am choosing to read too much into this. Rarely will a guy that is supposed to be a starter get run off the field in OTA’s; much less a coach just flat out saying the reason is the guy is clueless. Koetter could have chosen to play it politically correct by giving a vague reason but he chose to be concise and to the point.

  77. Tarzan Says:

    The dude has potential, or he did. This kid is injury prone with a very childish attitude. If he does not get his way he wines about it. Either he gets his act together or cut him. Brate has made all the right moves and is what is going to help this team in the future.

  78. LakeLandBuc Says:

    We’re talking about PRACTICE, let’s not make a MOUNTAIN out of a MOLE HILL.

  79. Lord Cornelius Says:

    “Lovie made the decision to bench asj after he was completely healthy for 4 weeks….lovie benched him for 4weeks….”

    Lot of bad info going around here.

    1. Lovie should have placed ASJ on IR. Dude was not completely healthy for 4 weeks while not getting played. After the season reports came out that his shoulder was much worse than Lovie ever alluded to. It was a joke that he was week-to-week with the injury he had. And we all bashed him for being soft. There is no evidence Lovie benched ASJ for attitude. If anything he hurt his reputation with how he handled his injury because everyone thought he’d be back any week.

    2. Someone said something like the 2014 draft was the worst ever? Lmfao.

    Mike Evans, despite some drops in a few games, had a great year still. He’s the most talented WR the Bucs have ever had in my opinion. Could definitely be one of the top 5-10 guys in the league for a long ass time.

    ASJ may be a bust. We’ll find out.

    Charles Sims was one of the best #2 RBs in the league last year and a huge pass catching weapon. Not bad for a 3rd rounder at all. That’s a hit.

    Kevin Pamphile, 5th round, is a successful rotational Offensive lineman that could start at a variety of positions and likely a cornerstone of our O-line for years to come.

    They say 3 starters from a draft is a very solid draft. If ASJ turns it around we basically got 4. Even if he ends up a bust ME/Charles Sims/Pamphile make that draft average at worst.

    Look around the league. Most teams don’t get 3-4 starters out of every draft. Your standards are not realistic.

  80. BigHogHaynes Says:

    @Realist: what players said that, name them, I’ve learned you like to just say stupid stuff and think people are sheep, you now have that ALL-WORLD COACHING STAFF, now is the time to do some coaching and some teaching something you say FRIENDS&FAMILY lacked, the video-clip says it all, all players eyes were on ASJ no one and I mean no one was looking at COACH K. It’s not gonna be an easy ride COACH K, you made the right move now don’t be stubborn (LOVIE) go get in his face, lay down the law, and get his ass back on the field. Teachable moment sure it is but it’s a two way street, wouldn’t want fans to think you were one/way or the highway like LOVIE ….. SHOW AND TELL just a game I play when I wanna say I
    Love you, show me and tell me that you fell the same way too!

  81. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    The one thing I don’t understand is how, after a season in this offense, he doesn’t know what he’s doing. This sounds like more than just not knowing all of the plays. Maybe I’m missing something.

  82. Buccfan37 Says:

    ASJ might prefer another team to play for, if he does and the drift is wafting that way, then he becomes another castoff Skunkaneer.

    The guy is soft.. don’t know why either..n

  84. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    BigHog, I do remember players saying that about Lovie and the penalties. That was one of the first things to come out.

    “He’s now on his third year of making numbskull mistakes. Not sure that is going to change. Question is, how much more patience do the Bucs have? Guessing — just a guess — he gets this season to get his head screwed on straight but after today, who knows? He may not make it to his third season with the Bucs.”

    Yes, but if Dominik was the GM he’d have 6-8 more chances….

  86. Buc1987 Says:

    BuccaneEric75…yep, but they’ll still be in denial…

    It’s a color thing man. You don’t have to say it but I will.

    Realist …you took them to school today.

    Lord Cornelius,

    I definitely agree with you so I don’t want my retort to be taken the wrong way but…. several team don’t need to get 3-4 starters and instead are providing depth. Some of the depth on several teams in several different years was better than our starters. In all honestly, as you said, we can’t truly judge the 2014 class yet. ME looks absolutely legit and seems to have that desire that seems to elude ASJ in my opinion. I think Pamphile was a great pick and I also agree with you on Sims. The question mark is ASJ. Let’s hope that he proves me wrong and he gets fired up by Koetter sending him home today etc. My brain keeps telling me he’s a lazy bust.

  88. Buc1987 Says:

    cmurda…a 2nd round bust. That just stings me.

  89. tmaxcon Says:

    Sims is not a starter neither is pamphlet or asj for that matter. I’m a licht fan but that was a 1 starter draft. It’s a reach to list those backups as starters. Valuable role players yes starters no. Sims was picked to high for the teams situation at the time period.

  90. Buc1987 Says:

    I defended Schiano his entire second season. When he got fired I dropped it cold. Not this guy BigHog though. Lovie means more to him than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So there HAS to be some other reason why. Is he family? Probbalu not.

    So I have to be the one to come out and say it….seeing how he pulls his race card out every now and then for no good reason.

  91. Capt.Tim Says:


    I’ve said it several times
    And dont know HOW it got past the interview part if the draft

    The guy is dumb. Thats the inside scoop
    Hes just bone dumb- and isnt gonna make it in the NFL.

    Dont start laughing! Pretty sure most posters here are to dumb to play in the NFL

  92. Buc1987 Says:

    Lovie has been gone for FIVE months for ef’s sake. Fans will continue to bash him long into next season and beyond.

    Defending him however 5 months later speaks volumes to me… 🙂

    Don’t push me ’cause I’m close to the edge
    I’m trying not to lose my head, ha-ha

    It’s like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder how I keep from goin’ under

    – Grandmaster Flash

  93. Capt.Tim Says:

    And if you are still talking about Schiano
    Or think he had any clue of what he was doing

    Then you are definitely to dumb for the NFL
    Because Schiano was waaaaaay to dumb for the NFL
    His schemes made this team a laughing stock

    You, Schiano, and Sefarian-Jenkins all belong in the
    NFDL- National F*ing Dumbass league


  94. LordCornelius Says:

    Hell even 3 significant role players that sign 2nd deals is a decent draft. Pamphile is likely a starter tho eventually. Sims plays enough snaps to basically be the equivalent of a WR3 / slot WR which ppl consider a starter.

  95. Buc1987 Says:

    There ya go. Capt Tim can testify how much I defended that idiot. Right up until he got fired. Then I dropped it and had high hopes for Lovie. That’s what FANS of the TEAM do. They don’t hold onto an old coach 5 months later.

    Capt Tim as you clearly can’t see as usual I was using Schiano as a reference. Yet you spun it into something else as usual for your own incoherent idiotic rant.

  96. Buccaneers Says:

    We’re not even in TRaining Camp yet. Football hungry fans have a story here to really go off on. At the end of the day we are making a mountain out of a molehill. Jenkins will have plenty of chances to let his game define him, not this type of garbage. And I trust our Coaching staff wil give him the chances to rise above this, along with any needed guidance.

    Yet though, ASJ has been nothing short of a complete disappointment here in Tampa. I would love nothing more to see the next ASJ story to be the coaches or players praising him for working so hard, or making great plays on the field…..or a story about Joe telling us how determined and furious he appears.

    The fact is that ASJ has a huge body and it’s beautiful to see him dominate the seam and carry the Bucs down the field. This offense has great potential with him. The potential is so much greater with ASJ(at full potential) then without him. It is just so disappointing to not have him on board with the Same mindset as, say, Winston.

    I’ve seen all I can stomachs of the “bad side” of Jenkins. It’s high time to see the good side!!! It has to be right NOW though!!! Make or break year for Jenkins!!!

    BTW, buckrealist has ruined the use use of exclamation marks on the entire site…….thanks for destroying a very useful tool to use when typing. Ya jittbag

    ASJ is a bust…. – DoNUTS in 2015

  98. Capt.Tim Says:

    Buc1987- that wasnt aimed at you. Its aimed at the posters who never miss an opurtunity to sing Schianos praises.
    There are some above you

  99. The Buc Realist Says:

    What we learned today Buc Fans, is the start of the Head Coach Koetter era!!! this is him putting his stamp on this team!!! This is the changing of the culture!!!! Rest assured you will not hear of the D-line having parties in the locker room if the lose!!! To Coach Koetter I stand up and applaud!!!!!!

    I’m your idol, the highest title, numero uno
    I’m not a Puerto Rican, but I’m speakin so that you know
    and understand I got the gift of speech
    and it’s a blessin,
    so listen to the lesson I preach

    Special Ed, I got it made!!!

  100. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    It’s just great to see 87 and the Realist get along and come together for a common goal. I have tears in my eyes right now.😢

  101. Capt.Tim Says:

    Dont get yer drawers in a wad

  102. Kevin Says:

    Goodbye crybaby. Hello guys who like to put the work in.

    Go Bucs!!!

  103. Buc1987 Says:

    Sorry man, my drawers have been in a wad for 3 weeks now. 2-3 hours of sleep a night for the past 3 weeks starts to wear on you. Got some Ambien coming my way tonight. Crossing my fingers.

    My body hurts. I was just telling my wife, that man football players must feel like hell on Monday mornings and I know how they feel too. I feel like I’ve went 9 rounds with the greatest of all time. I’m also quick to snap at just about anyone and everything. My wife’s ready to strangle me in the middle of the 3 hours of sleep one of these nights.

    Oh Ambien please work!

  104. Buc1987 Says:

    BuccaneEric75…we do make a good team don’t we?

    Who would have ever thunk it?

    Oh never mind I’m crazy, but I’m NOT The Buc Realist crazy.

  105. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    87, LOL! The Lovie thing just isn’t going to die for a while. The way I look at it, the free-agents we brought in (not all) were a lot of Bears and Cowboys. That sounds like Lovie. We drafted all Offensive players. That sounds like Licht. That’s where I’m at right now.

  106. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Hey, who wants to watch ASJ meltdown in real time?


  107. The Buc Realist Says:


    That is terrible!!! I hope he has a real friend to tell him to put the phone down log off!!! He is hooked more than bighogheinous on a lovie comment thread!!!!!

  108. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    @realist, I hope Jameis is calling him right now and telling him to STFU

    This is the kind of stuff that gets you cut. The guy just invited a fan to his place of work for a fistfight. Unacceptable

  109. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    WOW! I can’t believe that clown. I’m embarrassed for him.

  110. The Buc Realist Says:

    I took a quick peek at the time line and saw that there were other post too!!! Maybe they need to add a course at the rookie symposium of how not to hooked!!!!

    Serious ASJ87, They sheep, We Lions!!!!!

  111. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    The Bucs better dust off that emergency plan they had for Winston. We’ve found a use for it! Lol!

  112. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    And now he’s threatening to beat up a dudes wife


  113. Bigbucben Says:

    CreamsicleBananaHammock . Man what is wrong with this him? He’s actually arguing with hecklers on Twitter. Yea this isn’t good man. Aaron Hernandez without the murder cases and production. Straight IMMATURE!

  114. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Nothing here to talk about absolutely nothing important being said!

  115. Bring bucs back Says:

    I always questioned this draft pick. We needed/need sooo much on this team. Wasting 2nd round picks will kill any franchise. Hope that trend doesn’t continue.

  116. Buc1987 Says:

    Does Koetter know about ASJ’s twitter rants? If nolt perhaps he needs to be made aware of this. The Glazers as well.

  117. 813bucboi Says:

    @lord….what serious injury did he have?….it didn’t require surgery….it wasn’t a torn cuff like gmc…..he had a bruised should that healed…that’s why he didn’t go on ir….he wasn’t seriously injured….lovie kept him out for a reason….his attitude….lovie benched him for weeks because he still displayed a me first attitude…..GO BUCS!!!!

  118. The Buc Realist Says:


    you are so far off the mark!!! He was injured and could not lift his injured arm over his head!!! Kinda makes it hard to catch wouldn’t you say!!!! But he elected not to have the surgery that basically wraps torn muscles together!!! In those weeks he could run routes in practice to stay in shape. That is how he “practice” but was scratched during games, in hopes that other teams would prepare for him!!!!

    Much like when Joey Galloway had a broken bone in his foot and could only run in a straight line, but the story was that Coach Gruden did not know how to get Galloway and Bryant on the field at the same time!!!!!!
