Conspiracy Theory Fueled

December 6th, 2018

Missed practice again.

Thursday’s injury report for the Saints-Bucs game on Sunday has been released and you may read into the following what you wish.

After missing last Sunday’s game with a bum thumb, Bucs wide receiver DeSean Jackson missed his second straight practice today.

Now Joe understands there is a perception out there that the Bucs have quietly “Keyshawned” (meaning placed on ice the rest of the season) the Bucs’ speedy wideout and that Jackson has already played his final game in a Bucs uniform.

After the season, Jackson can be released without any salary cap ramifications. Jackson is currently in the second year of his three-year contract.

It has been a rough year for Jackson. He went on national television and pined for journeyman backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to be the starting quarterback. He later asked for a trade and was rebuffed.

Then, Jackson learned that America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, not his choice to start, would resume his spot in the lineup and then Jackson came down with a thumb injury.

Now if the conspiracists are correct, it’s fair to assume Jackson wouldn’t be at One Buc Palace. But Joe saw him in the locker room Wednesday, albeit it very briefly, which is a rare sight.

Joe isn’t ready to buy into the conspiracy, but Joe can see how folks are connecting the dots. It sounds logical.

Also highlighting today’s injury report for the Bucs is that starters Gerald McCoy, Demar Dotson and Carlton Davis were each limited in practice. And Jason Pierre-Paul did not practice for the second consecutive day.

Saints star receiver Michael Thomas, who had been nursing a sore ankle, has returned to practice and fully participated today.

    I never root for injuries, but have to shamefully admit to being a little disappointed that Michael Thomas was fully back to practice today lol

  2. Lord Cornelius Says:

    I learned everything I needed to know about this guy when he was tweeting selfish sh1t after the best team win of the entire season.

    Players really should just not tweet lol.

  3. buddy Says:

    Get him the hell out of the building. He has been and always will be a cancer. Joe all you media members had a hard on cause he showed up to workout with Jameis during the summer in Tallahassee, well truth be told he was there 1 day took a picture to post to socials and he was out. FIRE MEJAX & #KLUELESSKOETTER!!!!

  4. Fire Light Says:

    DJax act is up. He’s been a bad teammate and wate of money. His thumb prolly got hurt sticking it up Fitz ——-

  5. JimmyJack Says:

    He is our 6th best revieving option if you count O.J.

    Who really cares about this stiff?…….Oh but yeah he is publically crying about about his own team. He is forcing us to give a rats ass about him.

    It goes wayyyy beyond this.
    I was hoping with all of your resources – you would speak on some of them.
    How about faking an injury when he doesn’t get his way?

  7. LUVMYBUCS Says:

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    Who cares? The big question we all should be asking is..Do we have a chance against them Saints?

  9. JimmyJack Says:

    Jackson is surely the worst teammate we have. I would love to hear some quotes from other players and what they think about Jackson.

    Then we can play investigator and between the lines like Joe is always trying to do.

  10. Dooshlarue Says:

    Why didn’t we trade him before the deadline?
    I don’t care if we were offered a 6-7 th rounder, we should have moved him.

  11. 813bucboi Says:

    and folks said players are still fighting for dirk….lol….lol….lol….lol….

    @buddy…i agree….

    make both of them walk the plank!!!!!!


  12. Tampa Bay Demon Says:


    To be honest, I just always thought DJax would get it together and relish the opportunity for the first time in his career to be a veteran leader in the locker room. — He certainly has the ability to do so.

    Unfortunately he chose not to go that route. It’s too bad.

  13. Joe Says:

    Fire Light:

    LOL 🙂

  14. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Dooshlarue Says:
    “Why didn’t we trade him before the deadline?


    The Denver Broncos could sure as hell use him now with the injury, but unfortunately it’s too late.

  15. Rojas Says:

    Haha Fire Light.

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Surely someone should know the truth of the matter with Djax so we don’t need to speculate……but actions speak louder than words…..if he’s not playing and it’s some BS thumb injury…..that speaks volumes.

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    Don’t throw him under the bus, the guy has trade value this offseason – and if the team blasts him all they do is diminish his value. Anywho the thumb deal gives the team a legit reason to place him on IR if they wanted to – and they haven’t, and to me that tells me everything. If they really think he’s a cancer in the locker room or on the field then just put him on IR and send him packing back to California and awaiting the offseason trade, but the fact they keep him around, I think, means they want him to play again, probably because if he can play again it should help his trade value.

  18. tmaxcon Says:

    don’t blame djax because he can’t accept losing as easily as low standard bucfan led by cancer93….

  19. The Real Malloy Says:

    I had a bad feeling about him when we signed him. Saw what he is capable of like 3 or 4 times this season.

    Cut bait. Godwin is a star in the making.

  20. TBTeddy Says:

    Hopefully if he returns he’s humbled by the teams ability to win without him. I love when Jamies spreads the ball around and our team usually performs better. DJackson has been acting like spoiled lil bitch and I’ve always liked him as a player but he’s too old to be walking around pouting.

  21. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    It’s Jamies fault he can’t complete a deep pass to D-Jax, you guys wanting to get rid of djax are idiots

  22. JimmyJack Says:

    7423…..If you gonna call me a idiots maybe you could give me a compelling reason to keep Djax?

    Otherwise your just blowing hot air.

  23. AZBucsFan4Lyfe Says:

    Sure didn’t look like his thumb was bad on Instagram…..LOL

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    #7423 – But Winston has literally connected on deep passes to him this year… Anywho I agree that the people who say cut Jackson are idiots, but his salary and role and the salary cap situation makes it very unlikely they keep him around. Plus he’s always dinged up and that’s not exactly going to go away. As for the morons saying cut him, he might get as high as a 3rd from a desperate team, like his old team the Redskins. That, I believe, would require D-Jax returning and playing and being healthy at the end of the year, but it’s possible as not everyone has a depth chart at WR like the Bucs do.

    Also you keep D-Jax around as an insurance policy, lets say for example the Bucs did somehow pull off a miracle and get into the playoffs – then I’d want D-Jax on the team, at the very least returning punts as opposed to Hump who loves to fumble punt returns and put the team in terrible field position. Even if D-Jax just ran routes as a decoy and returned punts he’d be a huge asset to the team. Now I think the likelyhood the Bucs get into the playoffs are somewhere between 0% and 0.00001%, but there’s no reason to push the guy out the door early, they have to pay him either way so keep him around and active if you think he can play again this year.

  25. Dapostman Says:

    To the Buc fans who want to keep Mesean why would you want to keep a player who doesn’t want to be a Tampa Bay Buccaneer? Employees who don’t want to be ‘here’ usually don’t give you your moneys worth. Put him on IR and try to trade him before the draft next season. If you can’t deal him then cut bait. Younger guys are ready to up their game.

  26. tmaxcon Says:


    NO PLAYER, COACH OR FRONT OFFICE EXECUTIVE WANTS TO BE A BUCCANEER….. Tampa is the black hole of the NFL. careers come to drown in the bay. owners don’t care and are incapable of fielding a respectable product. bucs will get whatever coaching candidate who DOES NOT have another option

  27. ben Says:

    It’d not Djax fault Winston is not an accurate qb throwing to receiver in stride which is his job.

  28. SOEbuc Says:

    Don’t care at all. This entire team got better as soon as this b!tch boy stopped playing. I really want to see Justin Watson get some more reps if we’re gonna have a problem resigning Hump in FA.

  29. Season Is Over Says:

    The Bucs are holding onto him out of sheer greed. They have no respect for themselves whatsoever. The team never suspended Winston for his numerous antics and everyone still have to wonder if he has learned his lesson. If a fan can understand the ramifications of these two decisions I would like to see what the Bucs would say. In fact, I hope the Joes ask Koetter point blank why Jackson is here if he said he doesn’t want to be. This is what journalists from any other city normally do instead of ignoring the issues and blindly speculating when you have the opportunity to ask. Yellow journalism.

  30. SOEbuc Says:

    Jameis just has too strong of an arm to connect with a 5’10” guy down field. He should of been rotating #2 and #3 WR running crossing routes. Koetter must have the same play design for D-Jax and Godwin in the #2 spot cus he was always running 10 yard out routes. Shame shame we know your name Dirk.

  31. SOEbuc Says:



    You know how in every major professional sport they say “it’s a business”? That is a total BS word for who’s gonna give me the most money.

    Joe said:
    Then, Jackson learned that America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, not his choice to start, would resume his spot in the lineup and then Jackson came down with a thumb injury.

    You forgot to mention that before the thumb injury sidelined him, Me-Shaun Jackson came down with a severe outbreak of 3/4 effort on his route running and an acute case of alligator arms.

  33. JimmyJack Says:

    Winston+Djax=Oil and Water

  34. JimmyJack Says:

    Djax+Fanbase=Redmeat & Hungry 🦁

  35. DayOnePaul Says:

    There are two kinds of front line free agents.

    Men who move to a new team and bring their dedication with them. Let’s see…Hardy Nickerson, Vincent Jackson, Simeon Rice. That list is short.

    Then there are the guys who generally get over-paid to come to a struggling franchise, and their best effort is manifested when they run to the bank on Fridays. Lets see… Chris Baker, JR Sweezy, Aulterraun Verner, Jeremy Stephens, Robert Ayers, Chandler Cannizaro, Ghost Johnson, Alvin Harper, David Boston, Brent Grimes, Patrick Omameh, and that list goes on and on.

    Be aware Buc fans. The chances of a front line free agent coming here and exceeding expectations shows a poor track record.

  36. Wesley Says:


  37. Cobraboy Says:

    If Winston could throw the long ball with any consistent accuracy we would not be having this discussion, and DeSean Jackson would be a Buccaneer idol…like the first three weeks of the season.

  38. Dapostman Says:


    Mesean Jackson did nothing in week 3 vs Pittsburgh. You see Mesean is a one trick pony and it worked the first two weeks. Mesean has a career 56% completion rate and he catches less than 4 balls a game. He won’t be missed.

  39. SenileSenior Says:

    Is Tmaxcon paid by someone to stir up dissension and bad feelings toward each other among Buccaneer fans.

    Is someone trying to sabotage JoeBucsFan?

    Just some random thoughts. Pardon my ignorance. ;N)
    Go Bucs!!!!!!

  40. bucy Says:

    You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting.

  41. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Such another in a long line of poor decisions by jason licht signing djax, who is a great WR and is #1 ability is to get deep and the #1 weakness of jameis is to throw deep

  42. BUC IT Says:

    I really don’t want to see Djax on the field again for the bucs. I think he has had a bad attitude about Jameis all along and honestly I just think playing Godwin ahead of him fits us better.

  43. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ Agreed, BUC IT. — playing Gumby ahead of him is better.

  44. VFL98 Says:

    He is a loser. Have no respect for guys like him. He doesn’t deserve to be mentioned again.

  45. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Alvin Harper, anyone?

    Do you remember?
