Urging Bucs For “Hard Knocks”

April 7th, 2017

Stoked for the Bucs.

It seems the Bucs have a new high profile fan who isn’t shy about pushing the team into the national consciousness.

“Good Morning, Football” co-host Kay Adams (“Don’t ask me about my business, Kay”) has recently been very vocal about her new NFL crush, the Bucs. Yesterday, Adams beat the drum, claiming the Bucs must be featured on “Hard Knocks,” the NFL Films-produced reality series seen each summer on HBO.

(Sorry to be repetitive, but Joe continues to be asked: No, Joe does not know the date HBO will announce this year’s featured team. Last year, HBO announced on March 23 it would feature the Rams. Today’s date is April 7.)

“I’m going to go with the Buccaneers,” Adams said yesterday on her weekday morning gabfest seen on NFL Network.

“You don’t need [boisterous coaches] when you have personality like Jameis Winston, like DeSean Jackson who just might drop a rap album in the middle of training camp. We have to see how [Jackson] fits in and buys in to a young QB trying to get wins.

“I want a team on the ups, trending upwards. They won six of their last eight games. … This is a team that is right there. I think this is a contending team in their division.

“Then you might have Adrian Peterson joining them or Christian McCaffrey… but some interesting things might happen in the draft for them, who knows? If McCaffrey is down there, it would be truly amazing.”

Adams’ co-host, good guy Peter Schrager, believed “Hard Knocks” could turn winning Bucs coach Dirk Koetter into an NFL household name.

“I it think would be a great opportunity for Dirk to show who he is,” Schrager said. “He is candid and an unfiltered coach who would be great for ‘Hard Knocks.'”

Adams added she thought for many, Jameis is misunderstood and appearing on “Hard Knocks” would open people’s minds about Jameis.

Joe agrees wholeheartedly with everything the two said, and more. Yeah, the Bears are likely to be a strong contender to be featured on “Hard Knocks” because they have a massive following, which is why that garbage team is always on Monday Night Football. But as Joe has written, outside of Mike Glennon — quick! — name one player on their roster.

There may not be a more boring team in America than the Bears. Outside of the greater Chicagoland area and Bears fans who are scattered all over the place, the nation would snooze through a Bears-featured “Hard Knocks.”

The Bucs would be a riveting team to watch on “Hard Knocks” due to all of their personalities and storylines.

    And if they draft Joe Mixon, can Doug Martin go through training camp with team? Can Sapp come in the building and be on the sideline? That would ramp up the show, I might have to subscribe to HBO.

    Hmmmm. Looks like JBF has a thing for Kay Adams. No prob. Go over to TBT and we find Tom Jones has a thing for Joe Buck. SOME things are wrong from the start and only get worse.

    Don’t like the idea – too distracting

    Kay is a cutie! Would love to see the Bucs on Hard Knocks! And this is the right time to do it.

  5. ClodHopper Says:

    Mmm another Kay Adams pic. Can’t tell what’s an article and what’s a Cup of Joe page. I think Jameis revs her engine. Who could blame her? He seems to have that effect even on straight men!!

  6. Phil Says:

    There is nothing better than watching Kay Adams talk Buccaneer football.

  7. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    She is sure a cutie, and she likes the Bucs, what’s not to like.

  8. Patrickbucs Says:

    Clinton called for it hours before the strike was ordered. Sure some of these comments would be along the same political lines.

  9. BurgDweller Says:

    Kay is a fine looking woman and she likes the Bucs. Can we say dream girl!

    O Kay! FOOTBALL WITHDRAWAL IN FULL FORCE. Kay is pretty dope, not gonna lie. However, I’m ready for the DRAFT!!! Somebody wrote this is torture… Isn’t that the truth. Boredom has set in. My chick thinks I’m reading and then I’m like “BABY, WE GOT CURTIS SAMUEL IN THE 3RD, HE SLIPPED!!!” She’s like wtf?! Yup, football withdrawal, I HAVE IT. BIG. Mocking and joebucfaning for my football habit.

    So I know Mock drafts are exactly that, but you’d be stoked if that ever happened, ya (Samuel in R3)?! LOL, HE’S A HIGH to mid 2nd round talent. I say scoop him with our 2nd (if he’s even there) then add a BIG RB like Perine or Forman! Means you could shoot for the BEST Defender available or OT in the 1st. Logic being, BEST DEFENDER, obviously or you have better blocking if u go OT & speedster Samuel can also play RB, MATCHUP NIGHTMARES… Just think about that formula for second. Could be prettty tasty, just like……….. oK, that’s it! HBO, bring it on or don’t, either way I’m good. Added entertainment if we get it, no BS if we don’t.

    Joe, do you think that by writing several “reasonable” articles in a row about this woman, we will forget about your vulgar lap dancing article? Damage is done bud, image is tarnished. Disgraceful. Hope she reads that one day and let’s you have an earful.

    Vulgar really…. Turn your man card in snowflake…. Lap dances are true American art. not vulgar in any way. Lap dances are one of the true win-win for both entertainer and fan… Your pathetic. Rock On Destiny

  14. tmaxcon Says:

    I am truly shocked. i just can’t recall ever visiting a sports site and reading a Lap Dance labeled vulgar. this has really upset my Friday. i knew this country was gender-neutral but WTF…. Even if you don’t partake in regular lap dances which is a shame the local economy is very important after all but let’s just say you don’t, I don’t think I ever have met a man that would use the term vulgar publicly. Might not drop a hundo after work tonight but not label it vulgar. What are you Mike surely not human… Am I am missing a new label

  15. tmaxcon Says:

    mike you can’t label a great american traditional art form like a lap dance vulgar and not have to answer for you stupidity… don’t drop vulgar without explaining yourself… screwed my entire Friday afternoon up realizing I share the planet with such a prude individual who could disgrace such a great american tradition. explain yourself fool

    bears might top last year’s rams in terms of snooze factor, not easy to do. you’ve got John Fox who seems to live on the tony dungy end of the Personality Spectrum (nothing wrong with that, just doesn’t make for must see tv), a starting QB in Glennon who is somwhere on the Nick Foles end of the Charisma Spectrum, and then to top it off you’ve got an overall roster that is probably somewhere below the Jaguars end of the Talent Spectrum

    all the star power has left that locker room – remember Forte, Marshall, Briggs, Urlacher, et al? what remains seems like one of the blandest assemblies of human beings in the league. again, nothing necessarily wrong with a bland organization…unless you are trying to make a TV show about them

    I think Cleveland will be the pick. a crapload of rookies and 1st year players learning the league, a pretty dynamic and passionate coach, position battles everywhere, and they can’t possibly be concerned about the stigma of Hard Knocks setting them back vs last year or derailing a would-be playoff run.
