ESPN: DeSean Jackson Will Be A Buccaneer Barring A Last-Minute Breakdown

March 9th, 2017

Sound the alarm!

The #WeaponsForWinston gang has started celebrating.

From the Twitter fingertips of ESPN uber insider Adam Schefter, wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be a Buccaneer as long as there is no last-minute breakdown in his contract negotiations.

Don’t screw this up, Bucs! Joe is not concerned.

The field has now opened for America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston. No longer will teams get to ignore what lurks opposite Mike Evans, better known as Josh Huff, Russell Shepard, Bernard Reedy, Cecil Shorts and Freddie Martino, he of the velvet-lined lounge at the Vero Beach Ramada Inn.

Now the Bucs’ offense has juice. (See this story from Joe earlier this year).

Jackson may not have a lot of years left at 30 years old, but he has at least two.

Joe’s just excited because this move is as much about pumping more big plays to Mike Evans than anything else. Joe really believes Evans could challenge for the first ever 2,000-yard season with Jackson playing across from him.

    rather have Shep…how does this prima donna help team chemistry with a big fat payday? 🙁

  2. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    Oh yeah!!!keep it going Bucs

  3. Q Says:

    Welcome to tampa desean….and looking forward to seeing the movie all eyez on me you produced…GO BUCS

  4. Barbaric Says:

    I’m not crazy about a 30 year old Jackson, but this definitely gives us more flexibility in this coming draft. Really hope we target Cook, Howard or mccafrey in the 1st. Feel like either one would provide flexibility and pose match up problems.

  5. BucswinBucswin Says:

    It was reported on Good Morning football and the comments they made about Jameis was awesome .

  6. Vincente Says:

    Great news. Very happy to hear this first thing this morning

  7. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I am not worried about DJAX’s ego. Koetter and #3 are no nonsense no b s kind of guys. I believe they’ll work with him just fine.

    One thing a WR absolutely, positively has to have is the support of his QB. If he alienates his QB no more balls in his direction. Although the way Koetter handled ASJ in training camp shows that no matter how high the draft pick..or FA…Koetter will play only the best players. DJAX will be fine.

  8. Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Been waiting to point this out…. with the signing of DJax, Jameis will break the 5,000 passing yard mark. Then, on to the playoffs for our first playoff win in years

  9. Larrywoods3 Says:

    Can someone please remind me how old joey Galloway was when he became the fastest buc we’ve seen? Jackson has shown repeatedly that he hasn’t lost a step so chill.

  10. jthv Says:

    Galloway was 33 and had lots of injury history when he was brought to Tampa.

    DJax is 30 and has a few bumps but nothing major.

    Both with electrifying speed, I don’t understand all this “yea but he’s 30” talk.

  11. Buc Fresh Says:

    Great day for Bucs fans

  12. Miko Says:

    he wont be much good if he’s hurt or sulking all the time..Garcon would be better..A Pro..

  13. kobe Faker Says:


    Acquiring Jackson has created alot more running lanes with the safety not being in the box

  14. Matthew Says:

    Team chemistry is a overrated cliché fans & teams use to dismiss guys they don’t like or want. Those Bucs super bowl defenses had several (unreported) fist fights on planes; to include the known one Sapp/Lynch getting into it; yet they still managed to cave people’s heads in on Sunday. Desean sans his early contract squabbles and occasional hair-brained fumble is a flat out game breaker. Kirk Cousins should pay him a percentage of his salary, as should Pierre Garcon. The only reason they got their numbers is because Desean kept the defenses at bay and made them respect his speed. He will be a electric cable on the field the Bucs have not had since Joey Galloway; except Desean is a better version of old Grey Beard Galloway. For the first time in Bucs history we may have a high flying offense. Great signing if they can get this done.

  15. nate_tweetz Says:

    Like the signing… DeSean doesn’t have to be (and won’t be) the #1 WR. He is a great complimentary player to Evans. His speed will allow more single coverage for Evans and his speed should help Jameis increase his percentage on the long ball. DeSean is hard to over-throw. I still believe they need another stud TE and RB. If they are able to address those positions, our offense will be set as far as weapons go.

  16. tmaxcon Says:


    Who cares about team chemistry if the team has no talent and losses every week… All that family BS and good guy crap has never won a single game. The team captain choir boys led by GMC embarrassed themselves for the last five years…. Talent wins on Sunday all that good guy crap us meaningless rehotoric for losers.

  17. nate_tweetz Says:

    Great kick and punt returner too!

  18. Rojas Says:

    Don’t let him leave Tampa today without signing !

  19. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    He won’t be a mental case on the bucs the locker room is way to strong! Washington is a mess locker room and office!

  20. DB55 Says:

    Dear Djax

    Don’t pull a Sweeney. Welcome to Tampa. Would you like some crow stew?

  21. Dan McGraw Says:

    Every time he’s on the TV he’s hurt. Is it just me or does a 510 170 pound 30 year old wide receiver making huge money scare anyone else? Glad we are getting speed but seems like a big ?

  22. stu Says:

    Not a fan of this signing…poor bridge FA

  23. Cobraboy Says:

    With a drop of ink, the Bucs running game will get significantly more effective.

  24. g720 Says:

    Hope Winston can throw a better deep ball to Jackson then he has shown the last couple of years. Jackson will be great if the ball can get to him!

  25. Another J Says:

    NFL Network just reported it as official!

  26. Lunchbox Says:

    Now pick up Dede Westbrook and Cook/McCaffery, and no one will be saying we’re slow on offense for a long time.

  27. d-roca Says:

    He averaged 24.5 yards per catch the last 6 games of last season. I dont care if he is 40. We have needed someone to open up the middle of the field and running room for backs for years. We got him. Excited. Go bucs

  28. kobe Faker Says:


    2017 nfc championship game

  29. Chucklehead Says:

    Swapping Vjax for Djax. Hopefully, in the twilight of his NFL career, Djax is coming here to play his a$$ off and not just pad the retirement fund with Glazer loot. This could be huge (kia style) for this team!!!

  30. g720 Says:

    Winston only complete 32% of his passes more than 20 yards. Hope he can improve there or he will be only a decoy.

  31. Midnightstroker1 Says:

    See you at voluntary workouts djax???

  32. Another J Says:

    Sundays just got a whole lot more interesting, For the offense!

  33. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    I gotthe BBQ simmering for me and DB55s crow…but i will wait to take a bite and apologize to licht

  34. Broy34 Says:

    January 25th, 2017 at 1:19 pm
    I don’t believe DeSean Jackson will sign with the Bucs.

    Why in god’s name are people of the mindset they know what millionaires are gonna do?

  35. Tampa Tony Says:

    Still need 1-2 more weapons on offense

    2017 is no excuses for Winston, Licht will give him weapons now he needs to Protect the ball and win some damn games

    Go Bucs

  36. pabucsfan Says:

    To all the people complaining about him always being hurt then how did he have 1000 yard seasons three out of the last four years? Also he hasnt really been a diva since his early days in philly. Just think about how much better he is than what else we had the last few years and get excited about that. He is exactly what this team needed. Explosion. We dont need him to come in and catch a bunch of balls per game we just need him to make those few big plays a game and open things up more for Evans and the run game. Im more excited about what this does for Evans and the run game than anything else. One last thing. To anyone who isnt excited go watch his highlights from last year and you will realize we didnt have any of those types of plays last year.

  37. Q Says:

    Lets bring blount back….blount and rodgers ….im liking our post season chances in 17

  38. tmaxcon Says:

    Bucs NEED DIVAS and driven winners…. The good guy expirement was a complete and total failure. More djax types less McCoy’s and bucs will be a winner

  39. Buc1987 Says:

    Adding Jackson to the O instantly puts our team in the playoffs, but wait there’s more to be added.

    Sprinkle in a few more weapons this off-season and watch out.

    This just made my Thursday!

  40. DB55 Says:

    And now for the oline. Lots of loot tied up on skill players which will do us little good if we don’t protect Jameis.

  41. SCDevsFan Says:

    If we win his attitude will be great – if we lose, well, you know. Same as the fans. I’m banking on the playoffs next year.

  42. Afrobuc Says:

    Great news. We have another true playmaker in the huddle now. BTW, how much $$$ do you think Adam Humphries wants to give up his #11 jersey to DJax?

  43. Buc1987 Says:

    If I ran a 4.35 I might become a diva myself and you’re right Tmax.

  44. tmaxcon Says:

    Humphries needs to surrender the jersey as fast as GMC surrenders the booty every run down…

  45. Dave Says:

    They still need to draft a wr in the first couple of rounds.
    Love this but worried about health.

    Shepard (re-sign!)

    …. what else?
    A rookie and
    VJax return?

    That would be good to me

  46. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Awesome! Opposing defenses can’t just worry about Evans now!

  47. Name Requred Says:

    Instantly changes the offense to elite status. Running game opens up, and the ball gets spread all over the field. Now let’s draft some DBs and DLs and stomp the competition!

  48. Guzzie Says:

    Hump doesn’t need to surrender 11, DJax was 10 in philly, double down and draft John Ross in the 1st, then take Joe Mixon and his 4.43 speed in the game 2nd

  49. Rrsrq Says:

    Let’s ride out

  50. Lord Corn Says:

    Kobe I am with you on the OJ Howard train

    He’s my #1 want r1 but we may have to jump the Titans to get him

  51. Buc1987 Says:


    With Jameis Winston? OMG.

  52. Rojas Says:

    I think Djax goes back to number 10.

  53. Rrsrq Says:

    There will be YAC in Tampa

  54. Guzzie Says:

    Speed for days

  55. Buc1987 Says:

    With Jackson I myself could be the RB for the Bucs and get a 1000 yards.

  56. Broy34 Says:


  57. Matthew Says:

    For those still anti-DJax per ESPN Stats and Info:

    Since 2008, Jackson has:
    – 37 50-yard receptions
    – 21 50-yard receiving TD
    – 26 50-yard TD overall

    All are most in the NFL in that time.

    Hush now; its a great signing. Go Bucs.

  58. RawBucFan Says:

    Great signing!!! Hopefully DT Hankins next..any possibility?? I much prefer him over Baker who I would consider a consolation prize. If we keep Quizz, Robinson, McDougald & Shep it will have been a free agency success. Then focus on the draft!!! Playoffs & more are there for the taking.

  59. tmaxcon Says:


    Lighten up Frances bucs won’t win until cancer93 is gone…

  60. Jonzey Says:

    Don’t get Ross after he ran the 40 he was hurt(leg). We need Cook a change of pace playmaking runningback. We can get a WR in the 2nd round, because it is deep or the 3rd.

  61. rayjay1122 Says:

    So I guess it will be something like this.

    WR1 ME 13

    WR2 D. Jax

    WR3 Adam Humphries

    TE C. Brate

    Not bad at all if you ask me.

    I still would say with a deep WR position in the draft we could use a top 3 round pick on one.

  62. tmaxcon Says:


    Get over Ross he is fragile and will not translate to nfl…

    Bucs need reliable football players not draft picks with multiple knee issues before thier first snap. Ross speed is useless on IR

  63. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Adam is really only ‘reporting’ what was reported by someone else yesterday. In other words, he’s stealing credit.

    That said, if this turns out to be true, it is not his age that concerns me. He may be a bit of a diva, but not nearly so bad as Brandon Marshal.

    What does concern me is his lack of production. People point at his yards per catch like its the only thing that matters. What about TDs, total yards? 1,000 yards is not the benchmark anymore. 1,200 is. Look at the good WRs. It’s a passing league now, and Jackson barely managed to get 4 TDs in each of 2 years and only just barely broke 1,000 yards in one.

    So here is my prediction (bookmark this):
    Darel Walker will be the better WR for the Bucs than Jackson.

  64. Broy34 Says:


  65. tval Says:

    Stop worrying about the draft. Monster signing for jameis and mike

  66. Dirks Great Granpappy Says:

    tmax cmon brotato chip
    you rip gmc saying hes soft and been apart of the losing culture which is fair but now you claim hes bad at the run? lmao what are you smoking

    all of those losing crappy teams you claim he has been the leader of actually led the league in run defense

    zero credibility for you my friend

    what a tool to randomly out of no where bring up gmc in a desean jackson FA signing post

    get over yourself man. gmc is a buc whether you like it or not and all your claims are immature
    now youre going to respond by saying “show me the plays hes made in the 4th qtr dur dur dur”

  67. Jonzey Says:

    Broy34 who is TKAX

  68. Joeypoppems Says:

    Bonzai he isnt our #1 guy. How many teams in the league have two 1200 yard WRs? Dont out so much stock into stats.

  69. lurker Says:

    since 2008…lmao

    he was 22, and now 30

    hopefully not another wasted freeagent signing just wasting money

  70. 941BUC Says:

    Great!no get some depth at Oline to ensure Jameis stays vertical enough to get the ball to Jackson and Evans!Draft Mccafrey in the first if cook is gone and get Howard in the 2nd or trade up to the 1st and get him.can you imagine Howard Berate Evans Jackson and Mccafrey in the line up?

  71. Matthew Says:

    Bonzai you are too enamored with the counting stats while ignoring countless coordinators, coaches, and film buffs who’ve explained over and over why Jackson’s mere presence changes offenses. He effects the game even when he’s not getting the ball, because he forces the defense to account for his mere presence on every snap. Safeties cannot sag in the box, nor can they put #2 CBs iso on him without the fear of him going 90 yards. Look at his “Yards Per Catch” as well as the Redskins/Cousins record when he was unable to play. The fall off for both Cousins & Redskins is dramatic. We are no longer in the days of “box scores”, there’s plenty of great sites/flim break down guys who will show you why DJAX is so dangerous even without touching the ball.

  72. Joeypoppems Says:

    And I just dont understand how you can make that statement about Walker lol. Now you expect Walker to be a 1200 yard and 5+ TD WR? Cmon man lol

  73. tmaxcon Says:

    Dirks Great Granpappy

    I guess you missed DB55 stats on run Stuffing. Gmc is hardly a factor in the run game. He lays down faster than a crackwhore

  74. Jonzey Says:

    Walker is not a top WR, you can not compare him to D.Jax not even close

  75. Dirks Great Granpappy Says:

    lol tmax

    you claim he was the leader of those defenses and those defenses were consistently in the top 5 in run defense in the league(pass d gives me the shivers thinking about it so please no one bring up the pass d) but youre telling me the leader of that defense didnt actually contribute to the leagues best run defense

    its moronic and juvenile

  76. Gencoimports Says:

    Not my first choice, but I’m happy with it. I’ll be even happier if the Bucs draft a WR early.

  77. Matthew Says:

    Honestly depending upon what it would cost, I’d love to see them target Torrey Smith; which would solidify the WR corps 1-5. Allow the Bucs to go BPA in the draft at places of need or depth at: LB, OL, DL, S, RB

    We don’t need any additional HUGE signings in FA, as the best teams don’t build through FA. They add a piece or two, than add cheap depth & focus on the draft. If we can snag maybe an additional starter than just wait for the market to settle & add cheap depth this will be a successful FA period.

  78. Blake_bucsfan Says:


  79. Mojiska Says:

    Let’s keep the convo on d jax and the o. Tmax will not change his opinion on mccoy, and although I disagree with it, I admire his conviction. Most people already have a pretty set opinion on the matter, and it will not change either way.

    Back to d jax, I would much rather him than drafting Ross. I think we still need to add some more talent in fa (nothing HUGE, but a safety, maybe linemen, maybe cb not named bouye) so we can truly draft BPA. I just don’t want any major holes going into the draft so we can get who and what positions fall to us.

  80. Broy34 Says:

    Jonzey aren’t you the guy who said the bucs had an easy schedule last year? I’m not positive. And it’s quite clear i meant Tmax. What are you 12? Go bucs. Time to grab a dt/RB and draft the other. Here we come division title

  81. Bama Rich Says:

    JW must get better on his deep passes to make this a worthwhile signing

  82. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    DB55 OL is right now….and a competent safety and then draft d cook or mixon

  83. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I’m having a dream that Vincent Jackson comes back at 100% and regains his form. Dont wake me up!

  84. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Mixon !!!

  85. Matthew Says:

    Really great stat breakdown of Cousins deep ball passing with Desean vs Cousins deep ball passing without Desean. Also puts Jameis numbers up there as a comparison; DJAX is a errant ball eraser:

  86. DrHoagy Says:

    DJax isn’t all that is needed for a playoff run.
    Now add a running back, a Swiss Army Knife RB that can run routes and play from the slot on occasion, run between the tackles, etc. , then fill in the OL a bit more and the O will be fine. Add another DE to pressure the QB, sign or draft a safety and then we can talk about a playoff run.

  87. BurgDweller Says:

    Finally getting the Desean Jackson Gruden should have drafted.

  88. CalBucsFan Says:

    Go with Shepard, the guy performs and does everything asked of him, and if that’s not good enough then the Bucs need only ask more!

  89. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Cabo get my credit or what? Not looking so crazy now. DJax was in Orlando and nobody believed me

  90. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Can I ^^^

  91. Broy34 Says:

    Evans I applauded you yesterday. It was well done. Despite all the “Florida doesn’t get smog morons”

  92. SOEbuc Says:

    I was worried before that he might be one of those older guys that get big a fat paycheck and then not put in 100%. But now I think he will cus this is a team that looks to be on the rise and can possible begin to get deep into the playoffs in the next few years.

  93. The Buc Realist Says:

    Where are the numbers???????

  94. SCDevsFan Says:

    Next target?

  95. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Now go draft a WR for him to groom, just not John Ross.

  96. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m at work. I’ll get back at y’all at lunch.
    Until then y’all can post my crow below

  97. Joeypoppems Says:

    I believed you 🙁

  98. Oxycondoms Says:

    This is probably a better pickup for Evans ego as well. I can see him being more accepting of a proven veteran getting paid this much then someone like a Pryor

  99. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    I believed you Goat. I just wanted you to be wrong so I could get your house.

  100. lurker Says:

    mike florio:

    However, one source with knowledge of the situation recently told PFT that Jackson’s camp doesn’t view Jameis Winston as a franchise quarterback, yet. There are other guys whom they would regard as better passers for now; one of those teams could have an edge.

  101. tmaxcon Says:


    It’s business and a big boy world. If Evans get’s butt hurt over a salary he is not mentally tough enough to win championships. Evans knows the bucs need talented receivers to help him.

  102. lurker Says:

    mike florio:

    Also, the habit of the Buccaneers to not provide signing bonuses could help another team secure Jackson by putting a large bag of cash with a dollar sign on it on the table today.

    I’m not saying he definitely won’t be a Buc. I’m saying that the reports of his expected signing with Tampa necessarily send a message to anyone else who otherwise may be waiting and waiting that the clock is ticking and the door is open.

  103. Eric Says:

    It could be a great thing, provided the man doesn’t run backwards on punt returns, then fumble, or drop the ball on one yard line while celebrating.

    It really should help the offense.

    Now imagine plugging in Cook……

  104. Kobe Faker Says:

    Conner Barwin in Pewteur 2017

    great motor/ will get 8+ sacks next year

  105. Steven007 Says:

    Glass half empty:

    He’s 30, he’s injury prone, he’s a diva, he flashes gang signs during photo ops, etc.

    Glass half full:

    He’s a “young” 30, he still somehow ekes out 1,000 yard seasons, he helps the running game and passing game from day 1, he gives this sloth like offense something it hasn’t had since Grandpa Galloway: speed.

  106. Matthew Says:

    I’m not saying something but I could be saying something so I can’t be wrong but I could also be right; which if I am I will definitely take credit for, unless I’m wrong than I never said anything.

    Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Adam is really only ‘reporting’ what was reported by someone else yesterday. In other words, he’s stealing credit.

    I respect you, Bonzai, but this analysis is really just silly.

    DeSean Jackson in Pewter on the field changes every DC’s game plan against the bucs, period.

    There will be no more doubling Evans, shutting down #2 & #3 with average CB’s & LB’s, and stacking the box with safeties. History. Jackson immediately makes the Buc running game…and play-action…MUCH more effective. AND makes Evans maybe a 1500+yd. receiver in the process. No way a team can double both. And THAT opens the TE underneath.

    I can’t believe you posted that.

    So here is my prediction (bookmark this):
    Darel Walker will be the better WR for the Bucs than Jackson.

    Depending on the rest of FA and the draft, he may not even make the PS.

  108. Trubucfan22 Says:


  109. Trubucfan22 Says:

    1000 yards and 4 TDs is all i would expect out of a #2 WR. Let Mike Evans continue to be the stud, while jackson can be the speed compliment to help ease up the defenses.

  110. Cobraboy Says:

    I don’t know what happened to the html codes above. Sheesh…

  111. gotbbucs Says:

    Takes the top off and instantly gives the running backs an extra three or four yards between the safeties and the LOS.

  112. unbelievable Says:

    Bonzai must be smoking some good ish this morning…

  113. Bucsfanman Says:

    A blind man can see that this helps the Bucs. Stop trying to steal my positivity!!!

  114. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Yeah Bonzai has some weird obsession with Derel Walker. Idk what it is, but he’s been saying that He’ll be our 2nd best receiver for weeks now.

    I’d say its more likely that he does’nt make it through preseason cuts.

  115. Xandtar Says:

    We needed somebody.

    By definition anyone who makes it to free agency without being franchised has some issue that any one of us in the stands can criticize.

    Every free agent signing is a roll of the dice, people get hurt in TC, the player turns out to be a Fat Albert-level bust, etc.

    But sometimes, just sometimes, when you roll the dice you hit your number just right and pull in the pot.

    Let’s hope that this signing is just that, hitting the jackpot.

  116. Pewter Lou Says:

    I saw someone wrote that they would rather have Russell Shepard???

  117. lurker Says:


    mike florio or some dude named matthew on joebucsfan


    what is the history of free agents in the licht era, again?

  118. lurker Says:

    let’s hope if this signing happens, it is a reasonable gamble.

  119. celly Says:

    Still would’ve preferred Kenny Stills, but I trust Licht.

    I think would still not prevent us from drafting a WR in the first 2 or 3 rounds. In recent years, Licht has made a big FA signing and then drafted a player at that same position (bridge FA). I still hope Corey Davis is still available when we select. Otherwise, I’d be OK with an OL in the first round and then a WR in the 2nd, if that’s how Licht has them graded out.

    I may be in the minority, but I would still love to have Mixon in the 3rd or the 4th.

    He’s paid his dues (and will pay more once he gets some money) and deserves a second chance. If you believe in America, then you believe in the legal system.

  120. Matthew Says:

    Considering Mike Florio just runs a aggregate site where he uses “actual reporters” information & regurgitates it for content we’d both be credible by virtue of me just having a twitter account & RT reporters info. Only difference between me/florio sans audience size, is I don’t pretend to break news (sans when I let everyone know Martin’s Hamstring wasn’t right last year via a source).

    My larger point was you kept posting gibberish from Florio that provided no specifics. He literally talked out of both sides of his mouth (there MAY be other suitors for DJAX, but he still may sign with Tampa because someone who may or may not be from DJAX camp agent, brother, mother, 6th cousin removed)…uh terrific; that brings a lot to the conversation Florio. I was making fun of how useless his analysis is at times. Its content for content’s sake. bleh

  121. Dano Says:

    Just by having DJax on the field, the run game will improve. No more 8 men in the box! Howard or Cook for me in the first rd.

  122. Dano Says:

    More pass rushers please!

    If we draft Orange Julius and McCaffrey not only will Fameis throw for 5gs we’ll have a top 5 offense. OJ is a beast and MacMac can run and catch in the slot then with Action Jackson and Godzilla13 man……….HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW????????? Cousins never had that saying right.

    I am sure it is more than audience size…but u keep that great source.

    I was just posting interesting stuff from Florio. He is not the only one who said it will probably happen, but… the Joes did that very thing.

    Some day your prince will come.

    Whhhhhhaaaaat noooo

    Calais Campbell is talking to broncos after agreeing with jags? No way, can’t happen. Some would say a possibility is talking outta both sides of your mouth and should not happen.

    Damn Lurker or is this florio’s bruner account ala Skip Baylee’s; don’t be so sensitive regarding a benign critique of a hackey sports aggregator. Florio’s statement on desean was useless; it provided no specifics & allowed him to be right no matter the outcome. The only thing more useless was you regurgitating it & getting defensive that someone dared question the great Mike Florio. Cheep up buttercup, the message boards can’t hurt you if don’t log on to them.

  129. lurker Says:

    Lol. I am not hurt in the least. I am used to the a$$clowns on here.

    You claim Florio is overrated, the only difference between him and u is audience size, and that u made a correct call on a hamstring, touting a source. Wow. U r trying to make something outta nothing, but u should be used to nothing by now.

    His statement was basically it is not over until he signs. He also pointed out why desean would look somewhere…that the bucs don’t provide signing bonuses usually and his team don’t think James is a top qb yet.

    Snore…sorry but u are just not worth the time anymore and don’t register at all on Florio’s radar vs him being what u strive for.

    Could have fooled me my man. I posted a light-hearted poke at Florio (didn’t even mention you) & you’ve chosen that injustice could not stand, for whatever reason (maybe he’s your dad, sugar daddy, or you have his poster above your bunk bed). You tried to make it personal for some reason.

    The audience size was a ‘joke’ to fact that his site he runs is an aggregator & which is the equivalent of passing along others information. Its a joke because, retweeting Adam Schefter makes me no more of a reporter breaking news than it does Florio; just the audience size. The Martin thing was again part of the joke, as people on these boards saw when I posted it…I passed it along with hilarity; and it turned out to be true. Hate having to explain jokes to dense people.

    I’m not a reporter, don’t make my living covering sports so your critique of “of me not being on Florio’s radar” could not possibly mean any less. Its okay you got super into your feelings. I’m sorry you took a minor dig at a minor sports personality way too serious. It’ll be okay my dude, the world will keep spinning & I’m sure Mr. Florio will one day respond to those all those fan letters you’ve sealed with a kiss. Never stop believing in your dreams.

    Aww, c’mon guys, get a room already! I actually thought Mathews first Florio impression was amusing and spot on. That IS who he is. But I also appreciate lurker’s (cool screen name, btw) pointing out the axiom of it never being over until they sign. Florio could do that a bit more gracefully, but he doesn’t and so he always comes off the way Mathew mocked in his initial rant.

    DJax is a cancer plain and simple. By week 2 he and Winston will be exchanging words on the sidelines. He’ll be mailing in plays left and right. Shaking his head at repeated inaccurate throws. I want weaponsforwinston as well but i believe his accuracy issues. Will not get better. 65% passers stay in the league. 60% passers don’t.
