Miko Grimes Slaps Around Gregg Rosenthal

June 2nd, 2017

Take a public shot at Brent Grimes and/or Miko Grimes, and you’re going to get return fire.

And it shall come from Miko, NFL superwife of the Buccaneers’ No. 1 cornerback.

NFL.com Around the NFL chief writer and editor Gregg Rosenthal went right at the Grimes family in his recent piece identifying the top weaknesses for every NFL team.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: In the Grimes Media Power Rankings, Miko topped Brent last season for headlines despite Brent turning in one of the most randomly dominant seasons ever for an aging cornerback. Expecting Grimes to back that up at 34 years old is unfair, and the Bucs are very thin after their starters at the position. The team will be targeted in a pass-happy division.

This drew a flury of Twitter assaults from Miko to Rosenthal. They started here and, for now, ended here. The links take you to commentary that is NOT safe for young children or weak-kneed adults.

Joe loves Miko fighting back. After all, a guy like Rosenthal is influencing decision-makers across the NFL, and Brent Grimes is entering a contract year. Plus, Rosenthal was rather misleading saying Miko made more headlines last year. She was almost invisible all through the regular season.

And Rosenthal’s take that Grimes’ year was “randomly dominant.” What the heck is that? That’s just borderline ridiculous talk regarding a player who had just made three consecutive Pro Bowls.

    Gotta give it to Miko, she backed up her Twitter smackdown with some actual facts about Grimes. Rosenthal pretty much screwed up on this one.

  2. Lamarcus Says:

    Randomly dominant. That’s new. Today I go to work and tell my directs they are all randomly good at what they do. Fuk outta here.

  3. WESLEY Says:

    Who gives a crap what she thinks.

  4. Mike Johnson Says:

    I truly..do not like this woman.

  5. James Walker Says:

    Miko is REAL and speaks her mind. Not enough people like that in our BS politically correct era.

  6. thespiritof76 Says:

    Rosenthal made a perfectly fair assessment.

    Joe’s not throwing the race card into this, therefore, the rest of your comment was deleted.–Joe

  7. MDKnob Says:

    The gentleman with the black hat sitting directly behind Miko has a priceless reaction! You can just imagine what she’s yelling.

  8. LocalJoker Says:

    For all the Miko hoopla when Brent Grimes was signed, Miko has been a good Buc wife and well-behaved fan!

  9. BigMacAttack Says:

    I love her

  10. BigMacAttack Says:

    The Bucs are getting pretty slim in the weakness department and Grimes is definitely not one of the very few.

  11. Teacherman777 Says:

    I love Miko and I love Brent!!

    Anybody who hates her is just an intolerant bigot.

    She is a feisty and free Black woman

  12. Buc50 Says:

    I hear she makes(orders) the best birthday cakes.

  13. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Randomly dominant is a strange comment, but Rosenthal is a strange man. I think he was trying to say that Brent was really good but the National media never noticed. Rosenthal is a big Jameis fan and has been high on the Bucs. He’s right to not expect Brent to have an equal year to last season. I don’t think he meant any disrespect.

  14. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    Miko is real in all respects and despite needing to listen to Morgan Freeman’s advice on issues regarding race and opportunity in this country, she is a true passionate Alpha female. The truest and sexiest compliment to a true Alpha Male.
    And Rosenthal deserved every bit of flack she threw back at him and more.

  15. Lord Cornelius Says:

    lmao I love Miko

    “Brent Grimes is entering a contract year”

    ??? Joe?

    I thought it was a 3 year contract. He’s entering year 2.
    Nope. It was a two-year deal.–Joe

  17. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Joe where is the censorship on Teachermann ?
    I like Brent and I was worried about Miko last year causing problems.
    But she didn’t and her show is entertaining So I like her.
    But to say someone who don’t like her because of her Beligerant and foul mouthed style is a bigot wrong and offensive.

  18. Joe Says:

    Joe where is the censorship on Teachermann ?

    Not sure what you are referring to. Joe doesn’t censor folks unless they try to accuse folks of uncommitted crimes or actions, or they perpetually lie about Joe or go after Joe’s business partners or use certain words. Also, Joe (not you the commenter) is responsible for every single word on this website. So Joe has to exercise discretion. …

    Joe doesn’t give a damn who likes who or who doesn’t like what, but if one violates “Crimes Against Joe,” or uses foul language, or go after after advertising partners, then yeah, they get launched.

    Long live Miko Grimes. Real Ride or Die chic My G.. Salute.

  20. Pickgrin Says:

    Grimes will ball this year. Bet he’s got at least 2-3 good years left.

  21. holymoly13 Says:

    If Grimes plays like last year, I don’t care what any of them say.

  22. Maze Says:

    Miko is just awesome sometimes

  23. tnew Says:

    I hope he’s randomly dominant again this year.

  24. BucTrooper Says:

    It’s always obvious who watches and follows the Bucs and who googles them

  25. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’d like to sit within earshot of Miko at a Bucs game.

  26. Joe Says:

    I’d like to sit within earshot of Miko at a Bucs game.

    Am confident Bucs will be happy to sell you a ticket near her.

  27. Joeypoppems Says:

    Idk if Miko made more headlines and I wouldnt call Grimes’ season last year random. The rest I agree with. CB is pretty thin after Grimes and VH3.

  28. Buccfan37 Says:

    It looks packed around Miko in that pic. Standing up cheerleading is frowned upon from what I read here recently.

  29. tmaxcon Says:

    Love Miko… Can you imagine the player GMC would be if he had the spunk and determination that Miko has.

  30. Pick6 Says:

    “Want right at the Grimes family” is a somewhat extreme classification for an off-season filler piece by a certified Bucs believer in Gregg Rosenthal (the Around the NFL Podcast is a great listen, even in the offseason) where he acknowledges in a roundabout way that not many 33/34 year old CBs thrive in this league. Miko, as Miko does, takes light discussion by some dude who has a quota of articles to write during a dead part of the NFL calendar to keep his job and turns it into some sort of existential threat and responds with way-too-personal attacks. Nobody is making personnel decisions in this league on the basis of NFL.com write ups

    Props to Rosenthal for spotting the dominant season, most people people who cover the league would not use that strong of a term despite the pro bowl nod

  31. Pick6 Says:

    Went, not want

  32. Jpow010 Says:

    Not only is she gorgeous…who wouldn’t want her as your ride or die!
    True love is hard to find!!! Love her. Brent is a lucky man!

  33. Miko Grimes Says:

    Thx Joe!

    For those saying i went too far, i dont care! He picked a guy that came off an incredible season and said he wouldnt do it again. Say that when a guy doesnt wnd the season with a 99.9 grade!!! What has he seen this season that tells him brent wont be great AGAIN next year? Did he see flaws? If so, how come
    He didnt write about them? Does he not have to back up his opinion with facts? Randomly dominant? Four pro bowls, three of them in a row, isnt random AT ALL! And finally, he said i had more highlights than brent last year. WTF? I didnt say anything! People pick on my man all the time bc he’s quiet and they’re lazy! Well im not quiet! He dont wanna do the work of actually finding out what our teams weakness are, so what did he do? Pick on brent grimes! Not on my watch! Do your homework or get SCHOOLED by me! Period!
