Loving Carl Nassib

November 5th, 2018

Big fan of Browns’ castoff.

It seems Bucs defensive lineman Carl Nassib has a new friend.

And this is what you call a friend in high places. And that would be no less a public figure than Mike Florio-arguing, L.L. Bean-wearing, Second Amendment abolitionistparrot-insensitive, chewing-with-his-mouth-open, soup-gulping, California train-romancinganti-football proliferationouthouse-admiringairline-nappingsteerage-flyingYogi Berra-worshipingurinal picture-takingvideo game-playingTaylor Swift-listeningpickpocket-thwartingBucs-uniform-frowningAllie-LaForce-smittenBig-Ten-Network-hatingpedestrian-bumpingolive oil-lappingpopcorn-munchingcoffee-slurpingfried-chicken-eatingoatmeal-lovingcircle-jerking, craft beer-chugging, cricket-watchingscone-loathingcollege football-naïvebaseball-box-score-readingNPR-honkfilthy-hotel-stayingfight-instigatingbarista-training social activist Peter King, star of NBC Sports fame.

In his weekly column this morning, King scolded the Browns for giving up on Nassib.

Why did the Browns cut Carl Nassib? Are you telling me they’ve got four better pass-rushers than Nassib? I call crappola on that.

Well, one team’s crap is another team’s ribeye steak. Nassib, through eight games, has three sacks. Given the standard Bucs fans are conditioned to, set by the Bucs organization in the post-Chucky era, three sacks through eight games is like the Bucs have Reggie White on the roster.

At least Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht FINALLY broke down and got this sorry organization a pass rusher last spring when he stole Jason Pierre-Paul from the Giants for a third-round pick.

That’s what Joe calls some general managing.

    Is it just me or does the fault with this team lie more in Lichts hand then dirk, honestly think dorks a decent coach just Jason tried to get to cutesy at times instead of really addressing the needs. Yeah we got talent but that’s not gonna cut it when you don’t qualify deth behind it

  3. Kevin Says:

    Food for thought: He was next on the Bucs big board during the Aguayo pick.
    Clearly a better pick, but funny enough that we ended up with him anyway.

  4. DBS Says:

    How about “From the frying pan into the fire”.

  5. Joe Says:

    He wasn’t.

  6. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Watch the replay of the Samuels TD reverse. If Nassib had hustled he could of had the tackle. Same goes for Vea.

    Draft Misses: Hargreeves, Spence, Aguayo, MJ Stewart, McNichols, Kadeem Edwards, Kevin Pamphile, Kenny Bell, Kaelin Clay, Ryan Smith, Beneoch, Devonte Bond, Noah Spence… don’t think it’s too early to call Ronald Jones II a miss, I think we can add Jameis Winston to the list as well.

    Hits: Mike Evans, Ali Marpet, Chris Godwin, OJ Howard, Donavan Smith (serviceable LT)

    Jury is still out on: VV, Carlton Davis, Whitehead, Justin Evans, Beckwith and Kwon, Capa

    Not a good draft record after the 2015 draft class, he has to be as good as gone.

    Licht. The man who has drafted 3 Dlineman in his ENTIRE tenure. Spence- an undersized DE, Stevie T- a 7th round 350 lbs DT, and vita another oversized DT.

    Licht- the man who drafts a qb that throws picks, and surrounds him with 6 pass catchers and no running game forcing that qb to throw 40+ times a game. Always trailing due to a terrible defense. Bravo.

    The guy has stimulated the economy with more glazer money than any GM. Find me a good signing not named Brent Grimes. His drafts are brutal.


    Vea might not of got him but I watch vea fly down the field n almost save a touchdown that nassib gave up on 15 yards back. Vea got a motor on him for a big man. I like nassib but he gave up on that play

  10. pelbuc Says:

    Spicoli is spot on! I would only add all the FA blunders to Licht’s sorry resume. First order of business is to get rid of Licht and get a real football operations guy this season to give the organization a head start.

  11. LakeLand Says:

    DT BJ Hill, the guy that the Giants drafted with the Bucs pick

    Is playing a thousand times better than Vita Vea
    Hill looks like a franchise 3-4 NT

    Can the Bucs secondary coaches develop these guys for the NFL?

    Vea looks like……a man on a mission for his next meal

  12. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    Man the Joe’s are heated… And they should be. I could be mistaken but that’s the first time I’ve read the words “sorry organisation” on this site when it wasn’t in the comments. Heads are about to roll, baby!

  13. ChanEpic Says:

    Spicoli – Ronald McDonald Jones is definitely a bust when one considers when/where he was drafted. We drafted a Running back in the 2nd round who cannot catch, block, or run. That’s the very definition of a bust.

  14. spicoli Says:

    ChanEpic – I agree, usually with RB they either have it or they don’t. There aren’t too many late bloomers at that position. I would just throw in the whole 2016 & 2014 (other than ME13) draft class as a bust.

  15. rrsrq Says:

    Not calling ROJO a bust yet, look at the Colts Marlon Mack, in his second year he has had a couple of 100 yard gains, first year he was invisible

  16. ChanEpic Says:

    rrsq – To each their own but I’ve seen NOTHING out of that guy worth picking in the 4th round let alone the 2nd. If he were a 4th-5th-6th rounder I’d be with you. And hold most of my anger for Licht because he picked the 2nd rounder with 5th rounder talent… AGAIN. And even if he has potential, playing for Klueless Koetter will ruin him. Dude cannot even beat out P. Barber and HE hasn’t had a long (over 30) yard rush yet, this season has he? Holy crap…

  17. ChanEpic Says:

    I just looked it up, P Barber hasn’t had an over 25 yard rush IN HIS CAREER and our 2nd rounder “Home run threat” can’t beat that out?????

  18. Easy Says:

    Nassib is a beast and plays his tail off.

  19. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Where oh Where is Noah Spence,

    I did not see him on defense,

    Smitty did not like his stuff,

    Still can’t see the field with Duff,

    Or maybe he just cant dance?

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Carl Nassib is cool. Loved him on Hard Knocks, and not because of his financial advice, which was actually flawed.

    I liked him because of his effort. Know who also has a lot of effort? Bully. Joe Dirt.

    They need to get him some experience. Cannot do worse, because since Kwon got injured, MLB has been a major weakness.

  21. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    GhostofSchiano Says
    “Where oh Where is Noah Spence”

    Do we really care? If he’s no good, then I would rather NOT see him.

  22. Joe In Michigan Says:

    I guess you guys missed the reverse that Carolina ran, and Nassib could’ve had the tackle, but he was dogging it? I understand, it was only one play…But one play can cost you a game.

    SARCASM – another Licht wasted draft pick. I swear if I didn’t joke about this stuff I would cry. So depressing to love this team.

    “That’s what Joe calls some general managing.”
    He missed on so many guys for our defense! He was bound to get one right eventually! Also, buc are 22-42 under his “general managing.” Sporting News has him as the 30 of 32 GM’s (https://www.bucsnation.com/2018/6/16/17470764/sporting-news-jason-licht-ranks-30th-among-general-manager-bucs-buccaneers).
    Clinton McDonald, Mike Jenkins, Alterraun Verner, Henry Melton, Michael Johnson, Sterling Moore, Bruce Carter, Robert Ayers, Beau Allen, Mitch Unrein

    At least the Glazers have buckets of money coming in. As Jerry Reed sang, “They got the gold mine, we got the shaft.”
