“Cam Ain’t Got No Sense”

July 12th, 2017

Astute scouting.

Wonderful tidbit buried inside a cool feature on Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes and his colorful wife, Miko.

This coming from Jack Dickey of SI.com.

The piece details the relationship between Brent and Miko, how they met, and how they are so good for each other. A true NFL love story.

Dickey’s story also documents just how smart Miko is when it comes to football. She’s not the normal WAG of an NFL player. She’s fully invested in Brent to the point that she studies and is very knowledgeable about both football, and Brent’s skills. Dickey noted that Miko often texts Brent at halftime of games with either encouraging words or advice. One such example was the season finale last year when the Bucs hosted Cam Newton and the Stinking Panthers.

Miko basically had a called shot and she was dead-on correct in her observation, which helped the Bucs to a win.

To this day, Miko still texts Brent from the stands every game at halftime, relaying her scouting report and suggesting adjustments. In the Bucs’ final game last season, against the Panthers, she texted Brent to say that Cam Newton would try to pick on him in the second half: “U look bored . . . Stay ready bc u know Cam aint got no sense. Been hit too many times upside the head.” In the third quarter Grimes jumped a comeback route and returned Newton’s throw 31 yards for a touchdown. Afterward, Miko posted their texts along with video of the play on social media and scored it with B-Rock and the Bizz’s novelty rap song from 1997, “My Baby Daddy.”

LOL That’s just beautiful. Even Miko believes Newton might be a tad overrated. The fact she smelled Newton would try to lull Brent to sleep by targeting a rookie, Vernon Hargreaves, so much that he would try to catch Brent napping is hilarious.

And yeah, Brent Grimes got hosed on not being selected to the Pro Bowl. Miko, indirectly, seemed to blame this on the NFL suggesting Brent is too nice of a guy and if he was outspoken or pushed the envelope like Aqib Talib or Richard Sherman, Brent would be a household name.

    Right, because if she wouldn’t have told him that he would of never been able to make that play. She is like the Buc realist, if you post enough crap you will hit on it sometimes. Then you can come back and self promote. Joe fell for the bait and Miko get her own article.

    Love Miko lol that’s awesome

    Real live ride or die.

    @Dewey Selmon,

    Fair enough, but if you actually read and listen past some of the craziness, you would know that she is actually incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to football. I agree with you that she probably had very little to do with Brent actually making a play, but she actually does study film and knows a ton about the game.

    She knows her sheet.

    Haha some people just can’t handle a girl with that kinda heat and emotion. Never seen a pro football wife constantly bring the fire and support on full display for all to see. Come on HBO put a camera on her please

  7. Bucsfanman Says:

    I like her, and I think she’s right about Brent. Loud-mouths Talib and Sherman benefit greatly from scheme and a fantastic supporting cast. If I had to pick Talib or Sherman I would give the edge to Talib because he plays more man-to-man coverage than Sherman.

  8. Dewey Selmon Says:

    @Hawaiian Buc, you are right she does know football, so does every other spouse on the Bucs. And here we are talking about a spouse instead of the Bucs. That was my point about my post. I’m just not big on self promotion.

  9. Joe Says:

    That was my point about my post. I’m just not big on self promotion.

    If you aren’t going to promote yourself, who is gonna? Generally, people who hide themselves in closets don’t succeed.

    Oh, Miko was a monster distraction for the Bucs last year, wasn’t she? Remember when the Bucs signed Grimes people bellyached how she would destroy the Bucs? LOL Distractions. Junior high school nonsense.

    Right just sit down and shut up woman. Get a grip

  11. thespiritof76 Says:

    I will be so damn glad when the season starts and we don’t have to suffer through this stupid fluff.

    Especially from a trash like that.

  12. thespiritof76 Says:

    Here is a prediction you can take to the bank:

    The first Buc arrested this season ?

    This “lady”.

  13. BucTrooper Says:

    Miko is the biggest enigma in sports. You want to tell her to shut up, but she pulls stuff like this. She will fall on the sword for her man, but makes a spectacle doing so…. there’s so much GOOD she does, but you gotta put up with a lot of BAD.

    I’ve never been so confused about my opinion for someone … ever.

  14. BurgDweller Says:

    Miko is awesome but I got to say, that text didn’t really reveal anything of scouting value. Just telling him to be ready which as a pro, he should be every snap regardless.

  15. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    Everybody here talking sh*te about Miko & bellyaching about being torn on your opinion of her don’t know her, where she comes from, ever walked a day in her shoes from birth, and seem to forget that she could give a f!ck less about any of our opinions either. There are still men who haven’t been raised to believe you get a trophy for participation aka Lions or Alpha Males, and Lionesses or Alpha females as well. I’d take a lady of her caliber any day because I already married one and she dam sure knows how to be a lady when it counts, and ain’t no whiny little b!tches from this column could handle either one of them any day of the week. Here’s some tissues for ur issues, now cry little babies.
    And @Joe, you forgot to include beautiful in your description of Mr. Grime’s wife.
    GO BUCS!!!

  16. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    Why is no one giving Joe props for this being the first “Cup of Joe” in a couple of days? Miko looks good in this pic.

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    I expected a degree of fireworks from Miko from the start after reading about her before Brent played a down for the Bucs. Outside the salty Bucs Uncensored episode which I liked she seems great and I enjoy her takes. Keep them coming Miko.

  18. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “you are right she does know football, so does every other spouse on the Bucs. ”


    Complete and utter nonsense. Think about what you wrote. You think all the wives watch film? The majority don’t know any more about football than a rocket scientists wife knows about rocket science.

    So I read grimes is calling it quits soon (almost did this off-season)because the NFL makes him dress accordingly….. ok?…..

  21. grafikdetail Says:

    Miko is the GOAT!!

  22. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Hawaiian. I said knows football, never mentioned a thing about watching film.

  24. James Walker Says:

    Love Miko!

  25. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Love her!! As a fellow Gemini, like her..love her even more! my woman crush!

  26. richbucsfan Says:

    she’s an interesting personality, but let’s give her credit…instead of just watching the game and staying focused on her husband, she actually took notes and did video. That takes some concentration. Glad she’s with us.

  27. GenocideD Says:

    I follow Miko on instagram and she’s always posting videos of her smoking blunts. I think this crosses a line and is disrespectful towards Brent which puts him in a tough spot with the NFL and the Bucs organization and other teammates. Anyone else agree?

  28. THETRUTH Says:

    Is anyone bothered that he’s reading text at halftime. Which is like what ten minutes. Aren’t coaches making adjustments?

  29. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! Girls don’t know anything about football.
