D.J. Swearinger Took A Victory Lap

November 11th, 2018

Thriving in D.C. Bitter at Bucs.

Redskins stud safety D.J. Swearinger clearly has some bad feelings about his time with the Bucs and let loose a little of that inner rage after today’s beating of the Bucs.

First, Swearinger did a victory lap around the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway after the final whistle. He said in the happy Skins locker room that it was to thank Washington fans and to heal memories of losing here with the Bucs.

Joe asked Swearinger what he would tell Bucs fans who don’t understand why he was launched after seven games in Tampa during the 2015 season.

Swearinger, 27, with his trademark chip-on-his shoulder tone, was happy to respond.

“I’d tell Bucs fans I never got my fair chance here in Tampa. Once I was the fifth-string safety here in Tampa,” Swearinger said. “Whatever reason that was, you know, but I learned from that. I learned from that. I seen the other side from, you know, starting two years in Houston and then coming here and playing a couple of games and sitting on the bench. I definitely learned the other side of things. I wouldn’t change it for the world. But you know, [the Bucs] lost a good player and they seen that today.”

After Swearinger talked to the media throng in the locker room, Joe chatted with him 1-on-1 at his locker. Joe’s a Bucs history guy and Joe’s goal was to find out whether Swearinger put more blame on Jason Licht or Lovie Smith for his departure.

Let’s just say Lovie might not want to run into Swearinger in a dark alley.

Swearinger has 11 interception since the start of the 2016 season.

    Winston will be singing the same song.

    Mason Foster, Adrian Peterson and Swaggy too.

    Countless other but hey wtf do the Bucs know

  2. orlbucfan Says:

    Who cares? He wasn’t anything to get excited about when he was here.

  3. Lovie Smith Says:

    I’m right here DJ. You didn’t have a good week of practice so you had to go.

  4. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Who cares? The Bucs history is littered with bad personnel decisions. Swearinger wasn’t the first bad decision here and won’t be the last.
    You could easily build a team of Pro Bowlers/ Super Bowl winners who are Buc castoffs.
    Life is too short to spend on this BS. Go have a beer and relax, it is what it is.

    Our offense sucks!
    Our defense sucks!
    Go Bucs! Go Bucs!

    Blame Jameis!

  6. Pete I Says:

    Well at least somebody did at Ray Jay

  7. AfrikaThaRapper Says:

    Wasn’t he the guy getting all of those penalties for targeting/ illegal hits?

  8. rrsrq Says:


    you forgot special teams, they suck too

  9. Dover Buc Says:

    What a shame!!

  10. BB Says:

    Lord 11 picks it would take the whole Bucs team five years combined to do that this man must be the greatest defense player of all time

  11. Mike Johnson Says:

    I don’t get to excited about this crap. Many players have left the Bucs..and other teams and done well. Getting cut or dropped by an NFL team can be the ultimate alarm clock for those who really want to play in the league. So..Good for Mr. S. I’ll probably be LMAO if and when Jameis leaves. Because he is..going to come back and bite us square in our A’s!!!!!! He’ll probably win a superbowl elsewheres. Just like other Qb’s have done on us. I aceept my..BUCLIFE BABY!!
    Lets se what next year brings.

  12. LakeLand Says:

    Mason Foster and DeShazor Everett should have joined him

  13. Darin Says:

    Not sure how some of u dont get it. He is prob gona be all pro this year. Top few safeties in the league. As a coaching staff u have to notice the talent and put these guys in position to succeed. I dont blame him for bein salty. Id be too. These coaches this team has had over the last decade have been beyond horrendous. I hope the Glazers hire someone to make the coaching hire this time. Its imperative someone can lead a team of grown men.

  14. JimmyJack Says:

    No players ever live up to their potential in Tampa.

    Is it coaching or do other cities have magic and luck?

  15. Bculaw Says:

    Maybe the personnel isn’t the problem here….

    From one “coach my scheme” to the next. On both sides of the ball. Forget about putting your players in position to succeed. It’s all about making your antiquated scheme work here in Tampa.


  16. Coburn Says:

    Yup probably would have somehow found a way to suck here. .. said same thing about Derwin. Coaching is juts terrible and don’t put guys in position to succeed, play to their strengths, or develope them

  17. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    Mike Johnson Says:

    and when Jameis leaves. He’ll probably win a superbowl elsewheres.

    Yeah, that’ll be happening…

    … right about the time that pigs fly.

    Oh, and Pink Floyd concerts don’t count.

  18. Clarence Says:

    You could have a long career as an nfl pro personnel scout by following this simple rule: if they were cut by the Bucs, sign them lmao

  19. BigMacAttack Says:

    Many of Licht’s busted free agents (tons btw) had good seasons before they came here. Can’t lump them all into a single category, but for the most part it says the coaching here has been complete garbage. Some just wanted a fat paycheck and loafed, but no one likes losing and the Bucs are all about losing. Losing is their M.O. and what they do best. How much more do the Glazers really need to see unless they don’t care anymore either? If anyone is getting paid the big bucks, it’s the Glazers. They are raking it in, even with all the empty seats. Everyone gets paid, there’s no accountability and the reason incentive to win just isn’t there. The big thing is that none of them really care about the fans because they all get paid. Garbage Team with Garbage Mgmnt.

  20. BigMacAttack Says:

    I apologize to everyone for defending Fitz and saying he could carry this sucky team. And Donovan Smith isn’t even a decent backup LT.

  21. Mike Says:

    This is the clown show

  22. Wesley Says:

    Dude was a bum.

  23. K_Bassuka Says:

    Why played him when we had the greatest safety in football in Conte 🙄
