Yes, Joe understands Tampa Bay area sports fans are depressed by the huge morning void in local drive time sports talk radio. It’s in a sad state, but Joe understands why.

Still, even with the “Mike and Mike Show” now piped in by way of Joe’s friends at WDAE-AM 620, there was actually Bucs chatter squeezed in-between all the David Ortiz verbal fellatio this morning — which must have been fingernails to the chalkboard for all Rays fans.

Yes, really, there was Bucs talk!

But that was only because the Bucs played on Monday Night Football, a mutual BSPN property like the “Mike and Mike Show.” If BSPN does anything well, it pushes its own brand, stained though it may be.

Former Bucs assistant head coach and current BSPN talking head Herm Edwards spoke about the Bucs last night and was very impressed with Carolina was punched in the mouth with the run game.

“Tampa Bay had gotten away from that run,” Edwards explained. “They go into that stadium with Jacquizz Rodgers, a guy they just picked up. [Dirk] Koetter had him in Atlanta. And they ran the ball right at ‘em! Right at the strength of that defense. …

“I was saying, ‘Is this a football game or is this a 9-on-7 drill?’ [The Bucs] ran the ball nine times [in a row], are you kidding me?”

Edwards later wondered aloud about nine rushing attempts in a row, “Who does that?”

Apparently the new-look Bucs. That’s who.

The Bucs chatter begins at the 26:00 mark right here.

    LOL, Aguayo hit that last winning field goal, because he heard he would get verbal fellatio from David Ortiz, if he did.

    Herm Edwards is becoming “crazy uncle Herm”. And I like it.

    We did have some success early….but our overall success in the running game is because we didn’t turn it over and they did…along with a pretty solid defense that kept the score close allowing us to have a balanced offense.

    No more sports radio in the morning for me
    No interest in hearing not tampa sports talk every day.

  5. Tampa Tony Says:

    9 times in a row showed me Koetter doesn’t trust Winston.

    They had a game plan!! Go to Carolina get in a shoving match, give max effort on both sides of the ball!!! Great job by the coaches, getting both sides of the ball to keep pushing no matter what happened last night!!!!

    Morning radio wasn’t very good when it was local. More Rays talk that anything else, even when the Lightning were in the middle of the ECF they were getting 10 minutes or less of coverage… I turned the fak out after that.

    When Jamies forced that ball to Evan (almost picked) with Myers wide open for a first down Koetter was like, ah hell na, I need to save my job, Rogers come here…

  8. DB55 Says:

    Not the first time Koetter started with 6 runs. He did it last year too. Whatever works.

    That focking hilarious

    Then when Jameis threw that gorgeous pass to Evans for what became the tying TD, and was perfect on the game winning drive, Dirk was very thankful.

    Congratulations Mr. Rodgers! It’s about time that we have a ‘feel good’ story of an unheralded player doing well for us. I was sick and tired of hearing about how the Panthers CBs were doing well in spite of the fact that they were signed off the street in late September or promoted from the practice squad.

    well coached run game is all I have to say. They executed it nicely

    We needed to ground and pound. Our WRs can’t get open. Running the ball opens up passing lanes off play action. It gives the WRs a chance to get open from time to time. It was ugly, and I understand why some call it bad playcalling. I was also frustrated watching it live. But after the game as I reflected back on the good win we just got, I realized that when you aren’t having a lot of success throwing the football, you need to establish the run. We got away from the run the last 3 weeks and we had some terrible outcomes. The first half and the final drive we ran the ball awesome. And we got the win. We need to do that more.

    We showed the NFL that the bucs can win games without Jameis throwing the ball 50 times a game. We still have a run game and it needs to be respected. The past 3 weeks, we did not respect our own run game and neither did the defenses. It caused Winston troubles in the passing game and it showed on the scoreboard. As they say, you open up the pass game with the run game.

    Our WR”s are like 7-Eleven , they stays open. Jameis just continue to overthrow them, how can you overthrow 6’5 wide open trees?
