Flu-like Bug Gripping Bucs

September 20th, 2017

Bring back the Schiano-era hazmat team — and Joe isn’t kidding.

Bust out the Lysol, hand sanitizer and surgical masks.

A flu bug is running through the Bucs roster, Dirk Koetter said today.

The list of victims? Stay tuned for the injury/illness report coming soon. Joe is guessing Gerald McCoy will be on it, based on the way McCoy looked in the locker room before practice.

Joe also heard a fellow beat writer say Jacquizz Rodgers played through a bug on Sunday against the Bears, though Joe cannot confirm. And it was known Evan Smith was stricken last week.

Not exactly good timing for this with the team about to pack an airplane to Minnesota.

Hurricanes, guys living in hotels, flu. What next?

    New locker room flu?

  4. 407buc Says:

    Don’t they get flu shots?

  5. danr Says:

    Yeah. Those have a track record of working flawlessly.

  6. danr Says:

    Also cdc recxomends getting it ‘by late october” not many people have gotten it by now.

  7. Rod Munch Says:

    The flu? Who gets the flu when it’s 94 degrees outside?

  8. Rod Munch Says:

    danr – Most people don’t need the flu shot and much like in the hurricane you have panicky Pete’s that go around buying up all the supplies when it was 100% unnecessary and thus they limit the supply to people that might have needed it (like the dolts who went out buying up all the water and gas and then leaving the state, taking the water and gas with them). Elderly and children should get the flu shot, but if you’re a normal healthy adult you don’t need it and you’re just using up the supply that should go to those that need it.

    Got mine already, but it’s mandatory for us military folks. Get well Bucs!

  10. Getaclue Says:

    I haven’t had a flu shot in over 20 years, I also haven’t had the flu

  11. Buc50 Says:

    Rod, you are totally wrong. I’m healthy but I get the flu shot. When I DON’T get the shot, I usually get it and I’m down hard for a week or two. Most people can’t be away from their jobs due to unplanned illness. Get your Flu shot people.

    Victory again for our Bucs!!!

    I’ve never had a flu shot or the flu…….it’s all about genetics and as simple as washing your hand’s

    Rod, if your entire point is that the media hypes up hurricanes, well congratulations on noticing something that has been happening for the last 20 years.

    In case you were unaware, a ton of people STILL don’t have power. In case you didn’t know, a ton of people suffered tens of thousands of dollars in damage to their homes, some lost them completely. In case you hadn’t heard, lots of people were out of work for several days if not longer, and have lost out on wages that they probably need to live and support their families.

    You should really just stick to commenting about football, you actually have some knowledge of that. Other issues? Not so much.

    Wash your hands you savages!!!!

  16. NFLNut Says:

    One of my relatives is an R.N. and REFUSES to get a Flu shot under all circumstances … I have never had one and I think I’ve only had the flue once in the past 20+ years …

  17. Oxycondoms Says:

    There is a large amount of tamiflu prescribed every year those people probably wish they had the flu shot . That being said this could be a stomach flu which has nothing to do with what the flu shot protects against

  18. SOEbuc Says:

    It’s not the flu it’s just a cold. You don’t play an entire NFL game (Jaquiss Rogers), with the flu.

    Michal Jordan Flu Game:
    He tallied 38 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, and a block while collapsing to the bench and chugging fluids to replenish his weakened body at every timeout
