“You Shouldn’t Even Be In This Room”

July 30th, 2017

Instructing rookies.

Way cool clip that HBO released for “Hard Knocks.”

By now, Joe hopes that fans understand what “Hard Knocks” is because Joe has written about it so much. You know, the NFL Films-produced reality series on HBO featuring the Bucs this summer? The first episode is Aug. 8.

Many fans have never seen the show, partly because it is on a premium cable channel. Well, in a clip recently released by HBO, it is a perfect example of what “Hard Knocks” is: a behind-the-curtain look at how NFL teams build.

The clip below features winning Bucs coach Dirk Koetter addressing all the rookies, including rookie free agents, upon their arrival to training camp.

Koetter basically details how each one of them will get an opportunity if earned and they better be prepared when their number is called. The clip ends with words that are likely still ringing in the rookies’ minds this morning.

Joe won’t spoil it for you. Feel free to watch below.

    And even more important than ASJ87 learning a lesson, is that the Head Coach laid the law down!!!! All the players no know that the bar has been raised!!! That all the mistakes of the last 2 years will now not fall through the cracks!!! That instead of the lip service that the last regime said and did nothing, Now Action will taken and swiftly!!!!

    So excited for the new year!!!!!
    Go Bucs!!!!! And Go Beer!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Pickgrin Says:

    LOL – that “repost” contains exactly the phrase that perfectly describes all of the “Rhealist’s reposts”. They are all big fat “No knows”…

    SPBF’s comment in the last thread was on cue –
    Rhealist’s ego is bigger than Trump’s

    Get over yourself dude

    As to Coach K’s message to rookies – Perfect.

    If your not expecting to make a difference. Go find yourself…….

    The tide is right… This ship is sailing…. ALL aboard…. Fans Of Inspiration grab your ore’s…. When we get out a little ways we can set the sails and enjoy the ride as our worries pillage the enemies and destroy their hope….

    Tried not to do that, really tried, but JBF search engine would not yield the vid I was searching for. Tried many different search terms, but to no good end. Had to resort to a Google search (oh, the SHAME). to find even that. Trust me, I despise the MSM for a lot of reasons, and not just for football news either. Maybe the Joes web dude could tighten that search engine up some. Just sayin’. Go Bucs!!

  12. The Buc Realist Says:


    here ya go!!!!!! the comments are funny!!!!!!!!!

    FYI you can google search with “subject” joebucsfan then you can use the “tools” to zero in on JBF stories!!!!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Jimbuc2 Says:

    Nice try, but no sale. Does not specifically show Godfather Dirk ushering off ASJ Jackwagon, as I was looking for. I saw that particular link and found it wanting in support of my original contention. I am hardly a web newbie, having authored several web sites of my own. Maybe you shouldn’t be like a certain White House aid spouting off about “Sucking their own co#k. Peace out and Go Bucs!!!
