The Kiss Of Death?

April 28th, 2017


This may make Bucs fans burp up their biscuits and gravy this morning.

On paper, the Bucs look to be a truly frightening offense this fall. The only puzzle piece missing is a running back.

Think about it: Mike Evans, O.J. Howard, Adam (Rudy!) Humphries and DeSean Jackson. Who is a defensive coordinator to double? Answer: Nobody. And instead, you start working over a rosary.

On paper, the Bucs may have never had a more dangerous offense (though Chucky’s Super Bowl team had a pretty frightening offense).

Yet this morning, when Joe just started to get over his draft buzz and come down off the 18 Coke Zeros drank last night, a Twitter from the former BSPN star and notorious FS1 gasbag Skip Bayless found its way into Joe’s timeline.

Hold on to your briefs.

@RealSkipBayless: Man, with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and now OJ Howard, Jameis should have a big year and Bucs will threaten the Falcons.

Virtually everything that comes out of this guy’s piehole is garbage. So this scares the hell out of Joe. It was a major buzzkill when Joe read it.

It almost feels like right now the Bucs have been cursed.

    Well really, what do you think he will say? It’s obvious to everyone the offense looks good on paper. Don’t believe in jinxes.

  2. The Graham Tram Says:

    Unrelated, but I’d love to read an Erv Kaufman recap of the draft party last night.

  3. Jim Says:

    I hate that guy.

  4. Fred E. Bucs Says:

    Even the dumbest sports minds get it right now and then. After all, look at the TBT sports staff. Now and then they stumble across the right answer. Not a lot…but it happens. Not a curse…a coincidence.

  5. al121976 Says:

    No curse, its just that nobody can disagree, its too blatant. I doubt you can find one creditable person out there who thinks the Bucs offense will be crap next year.

  6. Another J Says:

    A broken clock is still right twice a day!

  7. Dooshlarue Says:

    So Skip Bayless, NosBos and ASJ go into a bar and……….?

  8. gotbbucs Says:

    Not sure I understand the problem here.

  9. DB55 Says:

    Agreed! This guy is a moron but did he suggest we trade away Brate?

    Speaking of the Falcons did anyone see McKinleys “speech”. Lol omg. Hood rich.

  10. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Regardless of how ppl feel about him, it is a national sports commentator talking about the bucs and what may be in the future, need to get used to it with hard knocks and it should be something of pride that people are starting to think of the bucs as “that team”

  11. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    DB55, 1st thing Id do with ol Tak is give him a mental eval, that dude will be the NFC souths version of vontaz burfict, he needs to lend some of his desire to GMC

  12. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    I hope this team is ready for the hype because it’s coming.

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

    We enter the men’s room and see you holding Dave’s scrotum Summer. Now remove that gerbil from your arse. Skip can be annoying but he AIN’T dumb. Challenge the falcons??? Please the division is our, we ain’t done drafting yet.

  14. Gencoimports Says:

    This offense is way better than the 2002 offense.

  15. Doctor Stroud Says:

    @Joe(s): when this year’s draft is in the books, would you please analyze the drafts of our division rivals? I would like to get your take on how those teams, in particular, did. I know that you guys are working hard on other aspects of the draft, so no hurry!

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

    And Kwon gone pap the gadget man up twice a year Blake.

  17. go for the face30 Says:

    Im not a fan of Bayless, but im not sure what the problem is either. People all over are getting amped about the Bucs, it’s refreshing

  18. Pit Says:

    September cant come quick enough.D.Cook in the second with zay jones and we will kick some serious a**

  19. Tampabayucfan Says:

    Am I the only person here who thinks it’s not time to panic over our running game…..we have the draft, UDFA, FA, Trades & Martin……RELAX!!!

  20. OJ Da Juice Man Says:

    lol after this draft is finished and we start gearing up for hard knocks, you better get used to the super duper high expectations. Koetter is officially cooking with GAS! If this offence doesn’t blow then someone will need to be held accountable. I can almost guarantee we will be trading up in round 2.

  21. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Nos there you are. Glad your still alive buddy

  22. BUCBOBARGO Says:

    So far SO GOOD! CAN’T WAIT to see which running back we get!! Then it’s ALL DEFENSE…The stronger we draft & free agent our defense, the better our offense will be……I am CAUTIOUSLY excited…
    It’s fun to be a bucfan again….

  23. JonBuc Says:

    Shannon Sharpe needs to provide a crack-back block on this Lil’ Buckaroo.

  24. LargoBuc Says:

    We’ll be fine. What else would Bayless say? Even he can’t contrive a narrative that spins our draft pick negatively. At worst they could play it off non chalantly considering its the Bucs but even that’s a stretch. In all we had the top offensive player fall into our laps and it has to be considered a win for us. Even listed us as “winners” in their draft “winners and losers”.

  25. ARGH_M8E Says:

    @FuNkYxMuNkEy – Hahahahahahaha!!!!!

  26. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Joe…you are just full of silliness today. Just what did you drink last night? Or did you double up with some other…recreational products?

  27. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Okay, who hacked Nole’s account? We all know the Coast Guard is currently searching for his body under the Skyway.

  28. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Get a grip on yourself Joe. You are wrong, and you have beem wrong for months.

    The sooner you accept it the better.

    EVERYONE thinks this is a great pick. All except the hardcore Dalvin fanboys like yourself.

    You’ll come around eventually. Just like you did with Hump.

  29. ARGH_M8E Says:

    The draft party was epic!!!! The commish throws a hell of a bash;). Sheeeeeeee-it, OJ MF’N HOWARD…. Who got dat juice?!!?! We do we do!!!! Who got dat juice?!!?? We do we do! Oooooooooooooooo Yeeeeah!!!!!!!!

    Game on and… F**k the Falcons!!!!!

    Oh snap, almost forgot… Hang in there Nos, ur boy is still on the board but keep that hotline on speed dial playa… Just in case!

  30. ARGH_M8E Says:

    My bad… he’s getting mocked up to the other Bay @33

  31. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    For our sake I hope you’re right Nos. Not really worried about it though.

    Because even though I still whole heartedly believe that Cmac is going to be a beast, Once we’re done address our O with this draft, they won’t be able to hang with us in a shoot-out.

  32. DallasBuc Says:

    You drink Coke Zeros?…and on draft night no less?
    Party hardy

  33. Not there yet Says:

    He’s usually pretty accurate except when talking about the cowboys tim Tebow LeBron James or anything football related. Other than those topics lol he’s ok. Just don’t root for the bucs please no curses

  34. tdtb2015 Says:

    “It was a major buzzkill when Joe read it.”- Joe

    So what’s the purpose of sharing it with us?

    More Nonsense….I forgot. Is nonsense day today. Lee your post today are reaching new lows. It’s almost like going LIVE on draft day.

    WTH is going on here?

    Lee we still love’ya!

    LBK- Lee Buzz Kill

    See you next week!

  35. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    So what’s the problem Joseph? What did he say wrong? Is it because he said we’d only threaten the Falclowns? They are the reigning NFC Champs you know who once again took us to the woodshed right? Until we are in the playoffs and they’re not all we can do is threaten them. I can’t stand the weak, sniveling, bassless viice having and testosterone free (wo)man like everyone else but he did say Fameis should have a big year you know. Come on Francis lighten up!

  36. Brandon Says:

    I’m sure he’s said great things about New England and Seattle the last few seasons. You’re giving this moron way too much power over your happiness. Just do what everybody else does, and don’t watch his stupid show… if he has a show.

  37. Yancey Says:

    All these “toys” men nothing if you can’t block it up

  38. Erik w/ Clean Athletics 'The Kwon Alexander of Bucs fans' Says:

    Joes, were u guys possessed by the soul of Lavonte David when writing this weak a$$ article?

    C’mon man (michael irvin voice)

  39. LakeLandBuc Says:

    This was the weirdest draft I have ever seen. Alabama was suppose to have 5 1st round picks and 3 Top-10 picks. But CB Marlon Humphrey was the first to come off the board at 16. Dalvin Cook wasn’t the only player to fall. Johnathan Allen fell to 17, O. J.Howard fell to 19 and Ruben Foster fell to 31 and Cam Robinson hasn’t been drafted. The biggest loser of the 1st round is Mike Glennon. He went from a sure starter to a questionable backup in a few hours. Ryan Pace even said at his Presser that Mitch Trubisky was his Franchise QB.

  40. Architek Says:

    Skip is trash.

  41. LakeLandBuc Says:

    2015 all over again for Poor Mike Glennon, it seems like the guy can’t catch a break.

  42. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    ^Ryan Pace is a straight up doofus.

    *pays 40 million for our Back Up*

    *trades away 5 picks to move up 1 spot for a QB that SF didn’t even want*

    All I can say is thank god we have a competent GM.

  43. Architek Says:

    Tom Jones = Skip Bayless.

  44. Brett Says:

    I miss him next to Stephen A. Smith. They are very entertaining together, and not so much apart from each other.

  45. USFBUC Says:

    Overall the division just got a little bit tougher. The Falcons pick was a good one, the Saints made two smart moves, and our pick was the best of the division. The Panthers I think worst case got potentially one of the best slot WR in the NFL but I will wait to see if he can be a full time RB.

    Other than a hot wife and millions upon millions of dollars for very little NFL work and wear & tear. 🙂 I know what you mean though LLB. I’m still stunned by the Bears folly. Pay sticker price plus for Glennon then handover multiple picks to a team who didn’t even want a qb. John Fox must be campaigning for an earky retirement package. I feel a fake Fred Sanford/Jeff Tedford heart attack coming on!

  47. bucs_365 Says:

    Joe sez:
    “Virtually everything that comes out of this guy’s piehole is garbage.”

    Yeah, but the same could be said for the lunatic running the country, but you’re his biggest fanboy… so no need to worry.

  48. unbelievable Says:

    Man, one of the Joes (Lee) is really in a tailspin today, huh? i haven’t seen this much nonsense on JBF in quite some time.

    Kiss of death because some know-nothing talking head from BSPN says our offense got better? Talking about trading Brate, like we can’t have 2 tighends on the field at the same time?

    Maybe come back tomorrow and try again? Get some sleep. Or some pot. Something to help you chill out man…

  49. unbelievable Says:

    lol 365!

  50. Defense Rules Says:

    @RealSkipBayless: “Man, with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and now OJ Howard, Jameis should have a big year and Bucs will threaten the Falcons.” Lots of players look good on paper (or whirlpool, whatever) but getting a team to put it all together and become DOMINANT is obviously very elusive. Guys underperform, injuries happen, Lady Luck dumps on your parade … whatever. Bucs have excellent potential … in players AND coaching staff … but we still need to make it happen on the field.

    Like Baron von Richtofen was quoted as saying: “The duty of the fighter pilot is to patrol his area of the sky, and shoot down any enemy fighters in that area. ANYTHING ELSE IS RUBBISH.” I suspect that Dirk Koetter would agree with the Baron 100% when it comes to winning & losing.

  51. R.O. Says:

    Im going to start guessing who was the contributing writer.. No doubt this was Lee. Same as the Brate is Trade Bait story….

  52. Mike Johnson Says:

    Deeyham Joe..Why you giving up on Martin? Martin is going to come back and have a blockbuster year. Mock my words here. And I don’t think we go running back in the 2nd. We go O line or Defense.

  53. Conte Piscateli Says:

    The guy is an idiot, but even a broken clock is right twice a day

  54. PRBucFan Says:

    Did you purposely forget Brate?

  55. NFLNut Says:

    I love Skip! I think he is actualy required to take the view that is opposite “common sense” on ESPN … that’s his whole job and he’s great at it.

  56. BigHogHaynes Says:

    lol 365 ….as white guys would say ” I can feel the burn”!!!!!!

  57. Rod Munch Says:

    Jameis is 3-1 versus the Falcons, and in the one loss he left the game early but had 260 yards and 3 TDs with no turnovers.

  58. ARGH_M8E Says:


  59. Kevin Says:

    I can’t stand that guys face let alone what he has to say…
