The Debut Of TAMPA TWO — With Derrick Brooks & Ira Kaufman

September 7th, 2018

How patient can Dirk Koetter stay with the running game?

That’s just one question on the mind of Mr. Derrick Brooks in this inaugural episode of TAMPA TWO with Brooks and co-host and prized columnist Ira Kaufman.

Enjoy this inaugural episode, a joint venture of The Identity Tampa Bay and Next episode TOMORROW.

    Great first episode! If I may give some feedback it seems a bit to formal, why the suit and tie? Maybe a more casual setting with some more Ruckus but again wtfdik.
    You will see changes in the weeks to come. And you definitely don’t want to miss tomorrow’s episode. But what’s wrong with a tie? You do realize Brooks is a businessman and an executive and isn’t playing volleyball at the beach all day.–Joe

    Nice debut gentlemen.

    Can’t help wondering if Ira showed up in his casual wear and was deemed not up to dress code standards for video – so someone said – “Just have Ira wear Derrick’s jacket – its a little big but no one will notice”…

    Let’s hope this year’s theme song is supplied by George Thorogood and that the 2018 Bucs are “B-b-b-b-b Bad to the Bone”.

    Great observation Pickgrin!!! Haha!

    Keep it up JBF team! As a Bucs fan with limited team exposure, throw everything out at us!!! I, for one, will absorb it ALL!!

    Shout out to The Sage and D.B. #55!

    Great to see mr 55

  5. The Buc Realist Says:

    Why is the “sage” in Mr Brook’s closet?????????

  6. Doctor Stroud Says:

    It’s always great to hear from Mr. Brooks, one of the greatest Buccaneers of all time! But, “I Can Feel It In the Night”?! Clearly, the musical tastes are a holdover of the Mark Dominik regime.

  7. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    Uh oh. Brent Grimes doubtful on Sunday according to B/R…

  8. Chris in WA Says:

    It’s not just according to B/R. The official Buccaneers website listed Grimes as doubtful.

    Good to see 55 mixing it up more with the Bucs talk. As for our running game, how about we send some draft picks to the Steelers for Bell? Make a trade to the Steelers to rescind the tag and give the man a 4 year contract.

    Readers are talking football not stocks. Ijs fwiw

  11. Joe Says:


    So you put zero stock into what Derrick Brooks has to say because he takes a few minutes out of his very busy day and is wearing a nice shirt and a tie?

    Geez. smh

  12. Buc407 Says:

    This is awesome Great idea I love #55!!!!

    Nice Joe. But these need another camera angle or two, and a bed of music underneath to give these some energy. if you need an editor to take a crack at these let me know.

  14. RustyRhinos Says:

    Fantastic! I will watch every one.

  15. Season Is Over Says:

    Can someone please turn autoplay off? No one likes autoplay videos and I will never watch one out of spite. Each time you click on the homepage the video starts. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out this means that there will be less clicking on the homepage.

    Season Is Over:

    Not auto-playing for Joe on his Dell laptop or his iPhone.

    Love the first vid here guys!!! So good to hear from the legendary Derrick Brooks. All I’ve heard from anyone whose ever met him in person is that he is a genuinely good and kind person. That to me transcends anything one can do on the field, but combine that with consistently amazing performance on the field and you’ve hit legendary status!!!

    P.s. the vid didn’t auto load for me either on my pc or iPhone. Season is over it’s PICNIC: Problem In Chair Not In Computer

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    No full screen available??? Full screen option is right there. Joe is not getting any kind of autoplay but is looking into it.–Joe

    And PLEASE…no more autoplay! Makes it hard when I open in multiple windows to comment.

    The Miami Vice theme song was written and performed by Jan Hammer. Collins contribution was the song “In The Air Tonight”.
