Goodbye Swaggy

December 24th, 2017


Get the hell out of town!

There are a lot of things you can call shy, belly shirt-wearing, practice-hating, kicker-heckling, tree-grinding , non-contact-football-loving, chicken-wings-grilling, playing-time squawking, TV cooking star Swaggy Baker. You know, the guy who signed a three-year, $15,750,000 contract this spring (only this season is guaranteed)?

The one thing you cannot call Swaggy is “gutless.” That’s about it. Weak-minded, lazy, ill-disciplined, that’s just a few things Joe can think of just off the top of his head.

Swaggy’s season was all summed up in one play today. The Bucs had Carolina on a fourth down late in the game, fourth-and-three from the Bucs-3. And Swaggy jumps offside pushing the ball two yards closer, now fourth-and-one. Two plays later, Carolina scores the game-winner.

Swaggy this season has been maybe a step better and more useful than breasts on a two-by-four. The fact that this guy was signed and the Bucs passed on Calais Campbell makes Joe just want to throw up.

Swaggy’s guaranteed portion of his contract is up in a few weeks. Joe hopes for his sake he’s renting. And has U-Haul on direct dial.

    Who signed Saggy? That man should be fired too.

  2. DB55 Says:

    That penalty didn’t mean chit you still have to keep them out the end zone.

    Once again your hero ice cream McIceCream Tutti frutti rainbow sprinkle popsicle gave up a rushing TD over his gap. If I only had a nickel! But pro bowl HoFer ring of honor greatest ghost dt to ever play the game.

    Blame EVERYBODY and their grandmother but until you get a man to play DT you’ll never stop anyone.

    But please by all means let hear why Baker needs to go….

    Let him keep humping trees..I’m just disgusted with that penalty…

  4. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Better check with soon to be officially Coach Gruden before cutting players.

  5. Buc believer Says:

    And take Batman with you!

  6. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Fatty Baker and Mike Smith are both giving themselves high fives

  8. Pelbuc Says:

    The title should read “Goodbye Licht” as he was the idiot who signed Baker instead of Campbell. Please Glazers begin the housecleaning with Licht.

  9. D-Rome Says:

    Agreed with all of this. He should be sat for the final game. Worthless! Not sure what Jason Licht saw on the guy.

  10. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:


  11. Season Is Over Says:

    Swaggy has been the most consistent lineman this whole season.

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    So….everyone is blaming the defense?… about Koetter playcalling in the red zone?… about his clock management….we lost by 3 points. Sure the defense gave up the winning touchdown but we should have been ahead by 21.

  13. JonBuc Says:

    Defensive equivalent of Anthony Collins as a free agent signing. Licht’s Out keeps up the good work!

  14. MadMax Says:

    “Get the hell out of town!”

    Hell yes! Perfectly fkin fittin Joe!

  15. Defense Rules Says:

    @Gencoimports … “Who signed Saggy? That man should be fired too.” I’ll second that.

  16. Bucs14 Says:

    It is too easy to heap the blame on Swagbob Penaltypants. The problem is the undisciplined losing culture perpetuated by Licht, Koetter, McIcecream, Smith, and others. This team needs to clean house. Hell, call in a priest for an exorcism.

  17. InJameisWeTrust Says:

    Take Licht with you!

  18. Architek Says:

    Replace the whole DL!!!!

  19. Guzzie Says:

    Thank you for that play Swaggy the Bucs almost screwed up and won this game and ruined our chance to get Saquon Barkley, he is JWs Edge, Zeke,Gurley, Faulk type threat in the backfield, the only reason Barber looks good is compared to drug Martin, get our QB a stud RB and sit back and at watch all the wide open TDs JW throws, our defense sucks but get a lot of points on the board and watch the wins come in

  20. Guzzie Says:

    DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!! Yeah once every 10 years, great offense keeps defenses off the field and scores most of the points dummies

  21. DB55 Says:

    Sure the defense gave up the winning touchdown! Hard stop! The rest of your sentence is irrelevant!

  22. No_Bucs_Given Says:

    Ummmmm. It was still 4th down…

  23. No_Bucs_Given Says:

    You just hate baker. I don’t remember you doing this vs Evan smith in Green Bay

  24. Lakeland Says:

    When I mention the Bucs shouldn’t sign Chris Baker. These delusional fans was all over me.

  25. Lakeland Says:

    But the Bucs offense lost another game. The Bucs try to FG a team into submission. Over 400 yards of offense and 5 FG attempts. That’s why Jason Licht wasted a 2nd round pick on a Bum PK. They knew they needed a reliable PK, for their FG dominant offense.

  26. John Says:


  27. Joe Says:

    You just hate baker. I don’t remember you doing this vs Evan smith in Green Bay

    1. What’s to like about him, that he can grill wings? Now that’s a scary talent that can be used on the football field.

    2. Clearly you are not a regular reader of Joe. Feel free to use the (free) archives located in the upper right-hand corner.

  28. Mike Johnson Says:

    I like Swaggy. HE’s probably a great guy to party with. But Swag is Buc history after next week. Swaggy will Swag somewheres else. Somebody will pick him up though

  29. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Jason Licht has no business being a GM in this league letting donald penn walk to this swaggy guy

  30. Rrsrq Says:

    Swaggy, will be a leader on this defense next year

  31. ElioT Says:

    Everyone on that sorry excuse for a D-Line was laughing and grabbing a** on the sidelines at the half, LOSING the game.

    On the other side, Luke Keuchly was pissed, looked like he wanted to kill someone while up three points.

    The Bucs are a perfect example of a physically talented but extremely mentally weak football team.

    Fat F**k Baker is the poster child.

    McCoy got his first quarter sack and disappeared (f**k the excuses).

    We’re on the threshold of hell here folks.

  32. Defense Rules Says:

    @EllioT … “The Bucs are a perfect example of a physically talented but extremely mentally weak football team.” Well, at least you’re half right Elliot. This T-E-A-M certainly has some physically talented players, just not enough of them to win more than a handful of games each year.

    And Guzzie, Licht isn’t going to draft a RB in Round 1 this year, just like he didn’t last year. If a top-tier DE is there, he’ll be our top pick. If not, DT or CB will get picked. 2017 showed that great RBs can be had in the 2nd or 3rd Rounds, IF you’ve got a decent OLine to run behind. Without a good OLine, no RB is going to excel for a whole season. Personally, I want to see us grab either DLinemen or OLinemen of a CB in the top 4 rounds this coming year. That’s what’s killing us right now, and that’s what our priorities need to be.

  33. No_Bucs_Given Says:

    @joe the poster.

    been here a long time and seen the hate. Ignorant comment.

  34. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Add John Lynch to the list of GMs that know how to builda winner

  35. not there yet Says:

    We already knew the defense gives up in the final drive every week which is why you get touchdowns over field goals, game should not have been that close. They held them to 254 yards total and still lost. I’m not mad if this is what it takes to get these horrible coaches outta here. These games are meaningless once your out of the playoffs race. If the head coach won’t be aggressive enough to go down swinging then they should lose. Coaches are to blame period. Did you see where he got that penalty. No faith they were going to stop the Panthers and everyone acting like they would have without that penalty needs to stop and wake up lying to yourself

  36. adam from ny Says:

    swaggy did us a favor…he helped up pick a drop higher in the draft…throw this dude a box of hostess treats for his move…

    in fact a friend said the reason swaggy jumped is because newton dropped a hersheys kiss out of his jock strap onto the field…swaggy sniffed it out as a pre dinner snack and simply couldn’t hold back…

    imagine swaggy arriving at the chinese buffet on fowler and finds the doors locked?…just picture him pulling at those doors to get in…

    i hear swaggy lives in mccoy’s comic con man cave and sneaks up stairs every night to raid the fridge when the the mccoy’s have butter their last rolls of the evening

  37. adam from ny Says:

    but seriously, get mccoy help or let him go get a little success elsewhere…

    also everyone raves about our backers…very often when the other team has a succesful play, look at david or kwon…they are out of place and just kinda standing there watching the action in some of balanced stance…i kid you not on this linebacker analysis…

    watch out if we fix the front and back end…then start crying “our linebackers are the weakest link”…it’s a bucs life yall

  38. adam from ny Says:

    typo ^^^

    some off balanced stance…

  39. James Walker Says:

    If I were Campbell I would take half the money to not be a Buc.

  40. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Bucs 14’s “Swagbob Penaltypants” is the nickname of the year.
    Well done sir.

  41. Doctor Stroud Says:


  42. Samsung Says:

    93 jumps off sides all the time and Joe just blames it on his quick get off

  43. NFLNut Says:


    WHY is anyone upset with Swaggy? Is he a horrible player? Of course. Was he an utter waste of money? Certainly.

    HOWEVER, he just SAVED the Bucs from winning a meaningless late season game and losing the #5 pick in the draft and dropping to around #11.



  44. NFLNut Says:


    ^ Never mind, forget the #5 pick … I just got home and saw the 49’ers beat the Jags … we are now in line for the #4 pick … SWAGGY BAKER SHOULD BE EVERY BUCS FAVORITE DEFENSIVE PLAYER RIGHT NOW … send the man a box of donuts!

    If we lose on the road next week against the Saints, the draft order will be:


    With the 4th pick we should easily be able to draft either star DE BRADLEY CHUBB or stud RB SAQUON BARKELY or Jalen Ramsey’s clone, the versatile CB/S MINKAH FITZPATRICK … or TRADE down for a package of picks to stock our roster!

    Had we won this meaningless game against the Panthers we could have dropped to #11 or so and ended up with an okay CB or DE like Ken Webster or Clellin Ferrel but thanks to SWAGGY BAKER’s ineptitude, we could get a future HOF type player!
