She Was Like, ‘Oh My God. Can You Do Something Good On TV?’

August 28th, 2017

Some Buccaneers are known for their motor.

So far, new Bucs defensive tackle Chris Baker is known for his motor mouth and televised pelvic thrusts on trees.

Yes, Baker has had a vacation-like journey through his 5 1/2-month tenure with Tampa Bay. Joe’s not diminishing what Baker has done, but there’s a lot he hasn’t done — or been asked to do.

“The coaches have done a great job this offseason keeping the reps down for guys like myself. I feel good,” Baker told WDAE-AM 620 last week.

Baker said he works his butt off and was upset by claims out of Washington that his work ethic is questionable. He said his nine-year-veteran status is proof he’s a worker no matter what anyone says.

Regarding Baker’s bizarre romance with a palm tree, as seen on Hard Knocks last week, Baker said his wife was not a big fan. “She was like, ‘Oh my God. Can you do something good on TV?”

Baker, who turns 30 in October, also added that he’s pleased to be one of the “belly bros,” a term he referenced on Hard Knocks. Keys, per Baker, are good eating and drinking “a couple of beers.”

    He has a point. He wouldn’t have made it 9years in the league if he was as lazy and garbage as u all crack him up to be. SMH

  2. Mike Says:

    This guy is a cancer.

  3. Mike Says:

    Way to go light….we’ve got some good character guys and team chemistry and now this scumbag…should have got Callais Campbell

  4. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    U sound stupid.

  5. DB55 Says:

    He’s too “real” for the tb faithful. His smile just not big enough. #Thug

  6. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Wish they could have got campbell but i like swaggy he brings some juice to the team through his mouth so far and I think he will turn it up on the field on gamedays….bucs need a djax and baker to get ray jay going

  7. Lord Cornelius Says:

    I’ve never seen this “Mike” guy post anything other than ridiculous negative bullsh1t about this team.

    Wtf are you doing with your life man? Get help

  8. Scottasuarus Says:

    I saw what he did to the tree on Hard Knocks. Big deal. It was lunch. He was trying to be funny. You would have thought he had molested a knot hole from what was published on JBF.
    The “knot hole” might have made more sense.–Joe

  9. chris Says:

    He’s a bag of Richards. 9 years and what? What’s he won? Other than being the biggest ass on Hard Knocks. I’ll be waiting on his first injury from being out of shape and his eventual release after a mediocre year and his mouth wears out it’s welcome

  10. RustyRhinos Says:

    I am glad for Mr. Bakers nine year NFL success. I want his NFL year number ten to be his best ever. I have watched him play when he has played it looks good. I want to see what he does in four quarters of a real game, not just his cameos he has put out in three preseason games.

    Go Bucs!

  11. Mike Johnson Says:

    We’ll see here come game 1. Seems like Baker is a game player..not a practice one. He sure does talk a lot of smack though. I’m just not that impresed with his play yet. He looks out of shape. But so did Sapp in his heyday. Only thing is..Sapp Delivered!

  12. Howard Cosell Says:

    Personally Howard would like to see a Peter King type preamble for any stories referencing Baker.

  13. Mike Says:

    I’ve been watching the team since 86- Forming my own opinions, which I thought this forum was for,

    I have a pretty good idea about the pulse of whats going on…and after honestly evaluating my own opinions over 30 years, they mostly ring true. I call stuff out quickly and consistently. one example…I told my two brothers we should cut ASJ a few weeks in to that fiasco

    I guess my opinions are negative when they don’t agree with yours.

    I think light is generally headed in the right direction but seems to shoot himself in the foot a lot and avoid glaring needs such as DE

    Thanks for your free personal advice though “Lord” Cornelius…

    One thing I’m not doing with my life…sitting in a chat room everyday calling myself “Lord”- seems slightly off to me, but what do I know?

    Such Hatred for the team. Its nauseating.
    Baker is 340. He doesnt like practice. Thats not uncommon for the really biguns
    He is a comedian,and makes it into comedy.
    You notice on the Hard knocks clip- the ” top Ten” list, that Coach Koetter is laughing too- when the crack about Baker not practicing 3 consecutive plays?

    I also know that from last weeks Hard Knocks- before he was light haertedly heckling the Jag Fans- that he blew up the jJag linemen?

    The team loves him. Believe me, if he was a total slacker- they wouldn’t.

    I swear- some of you think football is practiced under extreme military discipline. Its not. Ever.
    Its a game. These guys bust their butts, butt there is always alot of teasing, joking, pranking.
    Its a game , for Petes sake!!
    Quit acting like its the gestupo!!
    Judge Baker when it matters. Not during a bunch of irrelevant Preseason games

  15. Destinjohnny Says:

    Since he weighs 360 now do we need Stevie t?

  16. stu Says:

    Ghost Part II

  17. biff barker Says:

    For me, it’s best to see what this guy brings when the game scores count. OK so he likes to clown around some, it’s preseason right?

  18. Bucsfanman Says:

    Thank you Capt. Tim! You would’ve thought that these FOOTBALL PLAYERS were paying these critics’ rent or something!!!
    Baker don’t put bread on my table and as long as he’s on the team and contributes, I’ll be rooting for him.
    BTW, did you say it was OK for them to joke around?! Surely you meant everyone BUT GMC, right?!

    Its amazing how the Fans- most of whom didnt have the talent or dedication to make their junior high Team- seem to try and hold some of the worlds greatestest athletes to standards they could never achieve.

    Hows your Job site. Noone allowed to laugh or joke? Noone allowed any free time? Just work, then go home and study Work?

    Some of you are jokes!
    These guys can do things that you couldnt do on the best day of your life. Plus they have maintained a dedication and level of excellence that 90% of you underachievers never achieved. Otherwise you’d be the one getting Watched- instead of the watcher.

    Football players are competitive beyond belief. Other than that, football is part game, part Job.

    The only ones screaming about harder practices, lazy players,etc,- are thr overweight coach jockeys- that cant touch their toes if their life depended on it.
    They convince themselves that somehow- they are part of the team.

    You pay for your admission, to see these elite athletes perform.
    Thats it. Contrary to what you think- unless you played proball, you have no clue about it!
    You dont know enough to judge talent, assess work ethic, or coach.

    We can talk about how the team played, or how we think they’ll stack up against the next opponent.
    Anything more than that- you are deluded yourself

  21. Capt.Tim Says:

    – in Washington, Baker was a 3-4 defensive end.
    I bet he will be here alot, too
    Our two Samoan guys are gonna be NTs

  22. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “…was upset by claims out of Washington that his work ethic is questionable…”

    Clearly not upset enough to actually do some work and prove them wrong.

    This guy may end up being good, but I have a stronger feeling he is a complete waste of a roster spot.

    Watch him get injured out of the gate.

    “Its amazing how the Fans- most of whom didnt have the talent or dedication to make their junior high Team- seem to try and hold some of the worlds greatestest athletes to standards…”

    That’s just silly. You are going to tell me there are not any great football minds who never played football? People who know the game?

  24. Capt.Tim Says:

    – Im saying ,that if you havent been in an NFL Lockerroom-as a member of the team, then you cant speak for the attitudes in that lockerroom.
    The way these elite Athletes interact with each other, isnt the same as a lot of couch jockeys think.
    They have great respect for what a man brings to the field. But pro lockerrooms tend to be pretty loose. These guys are under a lot of pressure and scrutiny.
    They appreciate guys who “lighten the mood”

    Baker isnt a cancer. Hes got years and years of proving it on the field.
    They look like they welcome his humor. A bigun with a sense of humor wont hurt the team.
    Its the selfish, angry players- that blame everything on their teammates- that are cancerous to a lockerroom.
    See the T.O. File

    Capt Tim’s rules for blogging….

  26. Dave Says:

    He’s a happy go lucky guy from what I’ve seen.
    So what?
    Like McCoy, that seems to rub some fans the wrong way. They want every football player to just come across extremely intense one had a percent of the time. Not everybody is wired the same, who cares. If He doesn’t pan out on game day, then fine, but don’t hang the guy because his personality isn’t like Ayers

    “Baker isnt a cancer. Hes got years and years of proving it on the field.

    What I saw on hard knocks is that his goofing around started to rub off on Winston, and Dirk had to jump all over Jameis to get him to get serious.

    That’s what I call a locker room issue for Baker.
