“It’ll Never Be This Clean Again”

September 13th, 2017


No dirt brewing at One Buc Palace, Dirk Koetter said at One Buc Palace this afternoon.

[UPDATED: 5:40 p.m.]

Koetter made it clear the Buccaneers are in great shape physically. The forthcoming injury report this afternoon, the first of the season, should make Bucs fans smile.

“It’ll never be this clean again,” Koetter said.

What sweet music to Joe’s ears that was. Joe was concerned mostly about Kwon Alexander, who injured his hamstring during a training camp practice. (Video here)

If the Bucs are indeed full-go, then they have more than enough talent to take down the Bears in Sunday’s opener.

[UPDATED: 5:40 p.m.] The lone Bucs player on Wednesday’s injury report was Devante Bond who had limited participation with a bum knee.

    LETS GO!!!!
    I’m so hyped about this weekend. Chicago sweet like Bear meat. Can’t wait to see this team in action.
    Every1 is super high on the Vikings right now and already marking it down as a loss, but let’s just remember that was the saints defense they were up against with a starting rookie CB and S. I guarantee that if we play like that this week, the same people who are so scared of the Vikings will come out and tell us to pump the brakes on the hype cuz it was only the bears.

    Not everyone gets caught up in that stuff. The vikes play again before us. Same people could be down on them by then. Each game is different. They all have to be played. If we knew the outcome we wouldnt watch. Go Bucs

  3. Dell Says:

    I expect rust, we have to make that up by being more physical at the los on both sides of the ball

  4. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Jack Smith? God that would be a huge bonus. How can he NOT play a full 16 straight games and get 10+ sacks lol?

  5. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard expects a rout of the hapless Bears on Sunday.
    Especially from the Bucs defense which will completely stifle the Bears offense.

    Howard heard Joe’s fearful comments on the Ira podcast.
    Relax Joe. Martin would be nice but the Bucs can win easily without him.

    for what it’s worth, this week gave time not just to kwon but also to some important role players like jacquies smith and devante bond. i’m sure kendall beckwith’s knee and ali marpet’s ankle don’t mind the rest either

    as i’ve said elsewhere, the bucs should have the league’s freshest legs for at least first 5 games of the season when everyone else’s bye week kicks in. what a great opportunity to build first half momentum

    This effusive praise is a bit much. Based upon what are so exuberant? We haven’t seen this team a game yet. If they’re great, that’s wonderful. But, what if they lay an egg? We’ll see. They’ve been hyped since the Super Bowl win and let us down so many times, I’m a bit jaded. Lots to prove to the fan base.

    Believe rich. Believe.

    Who can really know about Minnesota? Remember last year. They won their first five games and were league darlings on their way to a playoff spot.

    Then the Vikes had their bye and Uh oh…they lost their next four games after the bye and ended up finishing 3-8 after the bye missing the playoffs at 8-8.

    So who knows which Viking team we play? I will say Bradford is underrated when he’s healthy and has a decent OL. Apparently the Vikes have repaired their OL…they have at least one GREAT WR..a decent TE and a stud RB.

    I think Minnesota on the road will be a tough game for sure. But that’s the challenge. Gotta win some tough games to advance to the playoffs.

    I wouldn’t go anointing Diggs as a GREAT wr yet. Maybe top 15?

    ME Goat

    Accept your point but top 15 is really good…but perhaps great is hyperbole. 🙂
