Vinny Curry Has A New Fan

August 27th, 2018

Vinny Curry is in a constant battle

New Bucs big-money defensive end Vinny Curry is feeling the heat and is taking action.

Offensive linemen want drill him into the ground and there’s a massive urgency at One Buc Palace when it comes to wins. But Joe, however, is being literal here.

Curry admits that he’s in a daily battle with the Tampa climate.

It’s been so intense for Curry that he’s now got a big box fan in his locker at One Buc Palace. Today it was plugged in and on the high setting blowing right at Curry from two feet away as he mowed down chicken and talked to Joe. The Bucs hadn’t even practiced yet.

Back in the spring, Curry, 30, pointed to the sun after a practice and told Joe it would be his greatest challenge, adapting to the weather.A New Jersey native who spent his college and pro careers in the northeast, Curry had a little fear in his voice back then. And now he admits to battling the heat when others around him don’t.

Joe’s not about to say a guy adjusting to Tampa weather after five months is a red flag. That’s not fair.

But it is in Curry’s head, and that could be a factor in some of the early home games on the Bucs’ schedule.

    Vinny’s a pro … he’ll find ways to adjust & have a great year.

    People go to the home games for a suntan and return home with a sunburn. The heat always touted as an advantage for the Bucs… not so much.

  3. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    This Sounds like more chances for Will Clark, who I really like and continue to see him improve. Rotation is the plan so Curry will get his breathers and be fine. The defensive line looks so much better from this time last year. What a relief.

  4. Deminion Says:

    was it Raheem or Lovie that said something stupid about wearing the white Jersey at home is an advantage?

  5. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    New fan…LOL!

  6. Radsy Says:

    Curry will be a massive part of our defense this year. I’m cool with ~5 sacks if he holds the edge as well as I’ve seen from him in th preseason

  7. Pickgrin Says:

    It’s like the ultimate desirability factor in home buying – but with a hot weather football twist:

    Rotation, Rotation, Rotation

    Somehow the heat seems to have worked against us….not for us…..this year we are at NO, have a 1pm with Phil, MNF….then to Chicago…\
    So, only one home 1pm game….

    We have depth on the Dline, so we should have an advantage there…..

    And, look at it this way, Vinny……if you would have stayed in Philadelphia…you’d still be playing at 1pm in Tampa.

    Ill be glad when the fraudulent fourth preseason game is in the books.

    Enough already NFL.

  10. Godeep66 Says:

    I bet he would be willing to jog 5 miles to deposit the game check at the bank.

    The fastest way to adapt to an areas climate is to eat locally grown foods. Try Ruskin Tomatoes or Plant City strawberries or hows about some citrus fruits!!

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    Suck it up Bucs. The sun beats down on everybody. It is an advantage if you don’t let it get to you.

    If you can go 100% on every single stinking play in this nasty ole heat you know you are going to find somebody on the field bogging down and letting the heat get to them.

    You go 100% all game long just to find that one play. If you are playing to win that’s exactly what you’ll do.

  13. JimmyJack Says:

    Not like the heat has ever been a advantage anyways. We let teams come into Tampa and we let them set the tone and tempo……the only time we’re ever setting the tone at home is when were missing field goals or fumbling the ball away or doing something stupid.

    We haven’t had any players on this team that care about the franchise. Til we ever figure it out it will be the same comedy show at Ray Jay on Sundays.

  14. BucEmUp Says:

    I was born and raised here. I hate the Florida heat and I live the low and cod weather. Some people are just built different.

    Stay hydrated he will be ok

  15. Pryda... sec147 Says:

    It’s only going to make him stronger I think he is fining to be fine after a few games in the heat

  16. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    It’s been stupid humid this summer throughout the northeast. Not many teams up here are getting a break from raunchy temps during training camp. It’ll be relevant come October.

  17. TampaTown Says:

    No doubt the home opener will be hotter than he!! and tough for fans and players alike. Hydration is key which means after every two beers have a water or small Gatorade or both. Can’t wait for all the Eagles fans to show up in their jeans and player jerseys then pass out with heat stroke. Seen it many times. Last time we played them at home early the Eagle fans were on the floor lining the tunnels to get some cool air. They think they don’t have to drink water until
    they wake up looking at sky. Adjusting to this climate is real but I agree I think it’s in Vinny’s head alittle bit.

  18. Bucs55 Says:

    If he’s having a hard time with the heat imagine Vea at 345+ and has not been able to do much in training camp .

  19. Irishmist Says:

    Put his cup in the freezer an hour before game time.

    Yeah it might be rough on the Philly fans but I remember enjoying when we were in the Central Division.

    We sucked at the Old Sombrero and there were always loads of available great seats at good prices.

    Now for someone in Green Bay where tickets are literally passed down in wills and it’s EXPENSIVE to get a ticket…a winter vacation in Tampa…cheap tickets to see their team…sometimes impossible at home to even get in…they and their brethren from Minneapolis and Chicago loved coming South in the late fall.

    They would rent their convertibles..ride around with the top down…soak up sun at the beach…and then show up at the Sombrero totally burnt to a crisp. I loved it…but then I must have cruel side to me. LOL

  21. SOEbuc Says:

    This year after year of record breaking heat from the “hoax” of global warming is only going to get worse.

    Glazer family have been so stupid for so long when it comes to sun light and heat coming down on Ray Jay. I’m not saying pay for a totally renewed roof, but I’ve been saying for years they should at least do what the Dolphins have done and have shades above the east and west sides of the stadium. Maybe have some AC units blowing down on fans. Nothing wrong with adding more to one of the best stadiums in the league.

    Hopefully the Glazers read JBF or tell them of this idea next time you talk to them Joe. Tell em this Bucs fan and many more will be buying tickets. Guaranteed.

    I have to laugh about this.
    When I was a kid growing up in Mississippi none of my black friends parents had air con at the time.
    It didn’t bother them a bit.
    It would be 100 plus degrees and they wouldnt break a sweat.

  23. Gruden4President Says:

    @DestinJohnny where in MS did you grow up? I go to school @ USM in the Burg

  24. Proudbucsfan Says:

    Lol” I moved away from Tampa for 20 years and now have been back for 8 years. I’m a welder and wear long leather sleeves, welding with the hot sun beating on me. You never get use to it. You just gotta tough it out and make sure you take in the right mix of electrolytes and water. Stay tough Vinny.

    Lived in Hattiesburg when I was a kid
    Then moved to destin
