Still Little Love

September 24th, 2018

Not yet sold on Bucs.

If the Bucs want to be thought of as a division title contender, they need to keep winning.

That’s the sentiment from the breakfast table of “Good Morning, Football” the popular weekday morning show seen on NFL Network.

Today, the gang of co-hosts (Kay Adams, Kyle Brandt, Nate Burleson and Peter Schrager) debated who will win the NFC South. Shocker: No one picked the Bucs.

When the discussion was just about finished, Schrager (who Joe believes in a closet Bucs fan) asked aloud, “Are we sleeping on the Bucs?” Schrager pointed out no other NFC South team is currently undefeated.

Burleson basically said the Bucs have earned their sad reputation as NFC South doormats by years of losing in the post-Chucky era and to change perceptions the Bucs must keep winning.

“We want to see more,” Burleson said. “We have to see more. [Tonight] is a great test. The Bucs have a chance to go out there and continue doing what they have been doing and that is shock everybody. FitzMagic is real and I believe in FitzMagic. He’s going to play at a high level. DeSean Jackson is playing unbelievable.”

You can watch the full discussion here. The Bucs chatter starts at roughly the 3:50 mark.

Joe cannot really argue with what Burleson said. Two games aren’t going to change many minds when the Bucs have a well-earned rep for farting in an elevator.

    First off, ripping ass in an elevator is awesome.

    Secondly, we beat the saints in their house already, and the saints beat the falcons. The panthers just look awful this year. I’m not sure how other years outcomes are worth a hill of beans when evaluating the 2018 Buccaneers. The Bucs are in first place alone atop the division. Respect that.

    Well we are making some progress. Now at least the pundits are looking for excuses to justify their lack of respect for the Bucs.

    That’s a new development…used to be you could say the Bucs suck and folks would just shrug and say what else is new Mr. Obvious?

    This team is easy to cheer for in terms of personalities and stories on this roster. Of course there is one blemish that needs some polishing but if we keep winning and Jameis is the QB who delivers that too will pass.

    The morning crew broke out Fitzmagick T-shirt’s this morning. That’s showing love.

  4. Boogie Nightz Says:

    Really Nate!? You wanna see more huh? I guess knocking off the defending NFC South champs and the defending SuperBowl champs aint good enough for you when no one (including me I’ll admit,) saw this coming. What a worthless freaking scumbag! I hate this show starring these Saved By the Bell clones from the year 3000. Bucs fans! Screw the national media and just bang it here on JBF. We don’t need them to validate us! WE ARE THE HEART THE BUCS AND WE ALL WE GOT AND THATS ALL WE NEED!! LETS GOOOOOOO!! FIRE THE CANNONS!!!!

  5. Boogie Nightz Says:

  7. NJBucsFan Says:

    That Kay Adams…..

  8. teacherman777 Says:


    Donte Jackson, the 2nd round CB drafted by the Panthers out of LSU had TWO interceptions yesterday.

    Donte Jackson has 3 interceptions already this season.

    We drafted MJ stewart to be a nickle?? Hes a 4.56 guy. Not a burner.

    Donte Jackson ran a 4.3.

    We drafted Ronald Jones, a third down speedback who cant catch or block that runs as upright as Legarrette Blount but weighs a hundred pounds less.

    And Carlton Davis, a press man specialist.

    We play zone.

    Donte Jackson was the pick.

    I called it. Check the archives.

    Good Morning, Football is one of my favorite shows, but my NFL app won’t stream live anymore…it;s not just me. People all over have had the issue for over a month.

    Really, I’m thinking about cancelling as a result. What;s the point in paying for something I’m not getting?

  10. Alphabucfan Says:

    Fire the cannons right at anyone who doesn’t like the Bucs lol it’s bin a rough 12 years or so watching our team suck could be worse (browns fans) lol but we’ve become so use to losing that it makes winning that much better. Real fans stick with their teams thru thick an thin an don’t just hop on the bandwagon wen we start winning. Let’s rip down the steel curtain tonight go Bucs

  11. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    As long as we have a backup in there, they will not take us. Too much uncertainty.

  12. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    teacherman777, what is the point in crying over spilled milk? The draft is long over with. all of the picks made the team. That does not mean they should contribute right away.

    And the speed thing? How many times have we seen players stats from the combine not translate the same to the NFL? So Donte Jackson looks good so far. He’s having a great rookie year so far.

    That doesn’t mean Stewart or Davis or even Jones won’t have great careers. By your standard, the Bucs should have never taken Ronde Barber and he was a bust as of his rookie year.

  13. Dewey Selmon Says:

    teacherman, everyone on this board has make correct predictions. The rest of us have moved on, There is no re-draft.

  14. Kobe Faker Says:

    “There is something alittle odd with Peter Schrager…

    I see alittle Marv Albert in him”

    Kobe Faker

  15. SOEbuc Says:

    This crew thought the 5-11 Bucs were going to win the Super Bowl after hard knocks last year

  16. Big Stinky Says:

    We will find out if the Bucs are for real tonight. Can we beat a good Steelers team desperate for a win? I hope Fitzpatrick can do it again because the Steelers are probably going to score 30+ points. It looks like our defense still isn’t ready to keep a team under 20 points. Can’t wait until 8:15 tonight. #GoBucs

  17. Ghingus Kwon Says:

    mmmmmmm, Kay Adams……dreamy

  18. gman Says:

    If the Bucs want to be thought of as a division title contender, they need to keep winning.

    How insightful

  19. Phil Says:

    Kay Adams is the only star the NFL Network has.

  20. D1 Says:

    Teacherman or teacherwoman?

    That’s the kind of thing my wife does, I make a decision and if it works …crickets.
    If it doesn’t, it’s because she said we should have done this instead.

    That’s fine if you’re a woman, it’s just part of the deal, for a man…..It’s unacceptable and an offense against the natural order established by millions of years of evolutionary biology.

    Call Dr Respino immediately for an appointment.

    When you’re paying for the groceries , you’re the one responsible for the dinner.
    IOW, you’re not right about the pick or wrong because you never had the power to make the decisions.

  21. BigMacAttack Says:

    Yeah, I agree, still a long way to go. A lot of games to be played and you have to stay healthy (for the most part) to win. The Saints and Falcons both look real good and they won’t lose many games. I’m not on the Carolina train because Cam is a D-bag. I could see the NFC South put 3 teams in the playoffs if the Bucs keep winning with Fitz. Chicago will be a tough game and the Falcon’s receivers are as good as the Bucs’. They need to win tonight and stay in control.

  22. BucAllNight Says:

    Does anyone know FOR SURE which color jerseys we are wearing tonight… also where is this info found weekly?

    Go Bucs!!! 3 -0

  23. Crayhopper Says:

    That woman has tons of sex appeal.

  24. Gman Says:

    Not that it matters one bit…but we are wearing red

  25. SB Says:

    Nate Burleson is an Idiot!
    Does he not even WATCH Football. The Falcons are 1 and 2! In LAST place you Dolt!!!!
