“Keep Layin’ Bricks”

December 27th, 2018

How could Joe not share this instant classic from a Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend.

There’s really no other way to describe this other than it being pure entertainment, absolute candy and ice cream for football lovers who appreciate what Chucky accomplished as Buccaneers head coach.

Via the NFL Twitter video below, you can watch Chucky mic’d up on the Oakland Raiders sidelines last Sunday night.

Fantastic stuff.

No, intensity, one-liners and a love of rock music don’t make you a great head coach. But they sure make for great viewing.

    Joe are you F….ing kidding me??? Who give a flying F… about Gruden OR the Raiders!! Ship that is time I will never get back! Lay off the Jack Daniels dude!

  2. FortMyersDave Says:

    The only relevant stat about Gruden is 4 dash 12, his Raiders have under performed even more than the Bucs. I suspect that the Raiders will be fighting the Denver Elways for ownership of the AFC West basement for the next several years…..

  3. Dom is gone ... Licht Says:

    Keep Gruden off this site no Raider fans here. He destroyed this franchise with horrible drafts and bad free agents. What’s most pathetic is everyone after him has been worse !

  4. Resha white Says:

    Really !!! Lol who cares about what the lier is doing these days💩

  5. Doc Says:

    To Hell with the Raider’s, and Gruden( Mic that up.)

  6. Joe In Michigan Says:

    Entertaining stuff, it’s like Gruden thinks it’s Super Bowl 37!! Led Zeppelin, classic!!

  7. BrianBucs Says:

    Gruden should always be treated as royalty here because he brought the Bucs their only championship.
    Gruden knows he is with the raiders for the long haul, so he’s taking his time building the kind of team he wants, just like Jimmy Johnson did with the Cowboys who went 1-15 in his first year there.
    Gruden will have the Raiders in the Superbowl in 3 years, then regularly after that.

  8. Buc believer Says:

    @Brian Bucs…. Sir Jonathan Gruden can kiss my royal arse!!!

  9. BucLover727 Says:

    That loveable, crazy, abrasive, duplicative, a-hole has a charm to him.

    I think one day he’ll be less destructive, when he gets older, and may be a great coach.

  10. BucLover727 Says:

    That said, he dismantled what was historically one of the best defense’s EVER and unceremoniously ejected many beloved players like popcorn, and pretty much destroyed the positive system Dungy and McKay had built.
    Those were the days!

  11. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Exhibit B that BrianBucs is a football imbecile.

    Gruden step 1- lie, lie, lie. Check
    Gruden step 2-get rid of the best pass rusher in the league. Check
    Gruden step 3- underutilize and then trade your best WR. Check
    Gruden step 4-run good players and staff away with abrasiveness. Check
    Gruden step 5- convince idiots it’s all part of a master plan. Check

  12. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Gruden step 6- ?????
    Gruden step 7- World domination

  13. Dan Says:

    Hey all you mad at Gruden stop. He gave our pathetic team a super bowl. Was he the best coach no. But video of him is better than any coach we have had since so you can blame the Glazers he ain’t our coach again.

  14. Issaic haggins Says:

    Brian Bucs , The players will hate his white lying ( bad memory) ass in 3 years !!! The Guy is a head case that won with Rich McKays team and totally lost all players in year 3 . Total ego control freak that clearly showed he knows nothing about people nor football personnel while he was in Tampa !!! He has a pretty good dink and dunk offense but THAT is It !!! Wack Job, Head Case , liar, dishonest, 2 faced , Ego layden Clown !!!! That was to my surprise Actually Good in the Mon Night Booth !!!

  15. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    If you can’t appreciate Gruden, The only coach in this franchises history to not only get to, but win the ultimate prize in the game of Football, then wtf are you doing on this site?

  16. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    Heck I like the current dynamic with Gruden, I can observe him and all his crazy antics from afar and it doesn’t affect the franchise.

    Although to be perfectly honest, since firing him, we ain’t done a damn thing. So there’s that I guess.

  17. Howard Cosell Says:


    Exactly bro!
    I predict the Raiders improve exponentially next year.

    Lol Grudens strong personality sure intimidates a lot of Tampa people. Yeah, he’s a d*ck but if you treat him right he’ll be your d*ck. Right now he’s Mark Davis’

    Really happy for Gruden and I think he made the right choice

  18. Howard Cosell Says:

    Gruden knows he is with the raiders for the long haul, so he’s taking his time building the kind of team he wants, just like Jimmy Johnson did with the Cowboys who went 1-15 in his first year there.

  19. adam from ny Says:

    nah, he was not good in the monday night booth…he caused tirico to lose years off his life, and ran jaws right out of a job…the napoleon complex has a stronghold on this very successful man…you’d think he’d be beyond that, but evidently he is not…

    #WakeUp #GetWokeToGrudenShenannies

  20. adam from ny Says:

    Coward Blowsell will always be the MNF king to me

  21. Howard Cosell Says:

    Lol you guys are completely triggered by Gruden

  22. adam from ny Says:

    yes these fans are so angry at gruden..i’m not…it’s just evident that he’s an ahab

  23. Howard Cosell Says:

    How much fun is Gruden having in that video?
    Imagine the media circus if he actually has a winning season!

    espn will become egpn

  24. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    I thank Gruden for our Super Bowl but he ruined his good favor by dismantling this team and leaving the cupboard bare. Just as he is doing in Oakland, football has passed him by and only those who cling to the pst think he will be successful for the Raiders.

  25. denjoe Says:


  26. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Gruden micd up is entertaining………but he’s not a buc and the superbowl was over 14 years ago……..everyone has moved on Joe except for the ones still living in the past.

    I’d rather hear our bucs micd up…….this a bucs website……not raiders.

  27. denjoe Says:

    Doug looks good, behind a line that can actually run block.

  28. ben Says:

    Gruden is the best coach bucs ever had !!!

  29. adam from ny Says:

    chucky has to win in oakland…he’s no longer the young good looking guy with funny expressions…he’s older with jowls and a meaty head…so he’d better win…pretty boy youthful looks only get you so far…

    he’s a pretty good coach and should do ok over there…i have a funny feeling in about 2-3 years we will see the bucs playing the raiders in a superbowl rematch of sorts…

  30. DB55 Says:


    Can you imagine Chucky and Famous Jameis together?

    Chucky would say Led Zeppelin and Jameis would say no coach let’s call it lil uzi vert.

    We’d be champs in a year.


  31. RealBucFan Says:

    Joe, I love and respect what ya’ll write here, great stuff, Ira Kauffman is royalty here. But Joe, your regular posters for comments, I dont think they are Bucs fans. I read thru these on your articles and I laugh at 90% of it. I do believe Tampa has the dumbest fan base in any sport, they cant support anything without crying about something. To the guys or gals who post idiocracy here, stop, look in the mirror, your not Joe, you never will be. Support your team, and stop crying like a baby. Joe sometimes I’d like to take that rock Gruden talked about, and throw it at some of our wannabe fans.

  32. Mike Says:

    Really happy to see Dougie being lifted up and appreciated doing well. That made my night. Our coach is sad and uninspiring.

  33. cmurda Says:

    Oh come on. Let’s not be so sensitive. The drivel that Gruden spits is pure Gold. Decent football coach, bad talent evaluator, hasn’t met a QB he didn’t like. That said, I’m glad we didn’t get him especially when rebuilding is necessary.

  34. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    This is Joe’s website. He can post whatever he likes. If you don’t like it, feel free to leave.

    On the topic of Jon Gruden, he’s always fun to watch, especially his first year or so. Then he commences to destroy a team. In this case, he’s already started doing that.

    Notice how the fans are embracing him, even at 4-12?

  35. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Damn, we as BUCS fans are just pissed at the world right now, and it has never been more evident than in this string of comments.


    There is nothing wrong with taking a moment to reflect on Jon Gruden (aka Chucky) and what we accomplished with him in winning a fricking SUPER BOWL.

    Are we saying he was perfect or that he should be here now? No.
    Or that you should be rooting for the Raiders? No.

    Just REFLECTING on something DAMN GOOD
    that happened to the BUCCANEERS in 2002.

  36. Kenny Says:

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVED every second of that video. God I miss Gruden. Haters gunna hate…. Raiders are going to be a force to be reckoned with in a few years with all dem draft picks.

  37. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    I love how the pic creates the optical illusion that there are flames coming from the Super Bowl trophy. Good stuff.

  38. Gruden4President Says:

    Love that man. He will have the Raiders in the playoffs before we go and thats sad.

  39. Bucsfan3 Says:

    Wow that brings back the nostalgic feels. Keep laying bricks JG!

  40. Gruden4President Says:

    We’re missing that mans passion for the game on this team. Specifically love how he ends it with “Lets Pray!” Anyone that doesnt have love for this man and what he did for this our franchise s not a real Bucs fan. 4 division titles and a Superbowl is all i need 2 say.

  41. Eric Says:

    Great find Joe, thanks for posting it.

    Gruden is a great coach, as will be proven when he turns it around with the Raiders.

    Already playing much better in the second half and Carr is getting it.

    Go Chucky, I see another ring in your future.

    As for the ingrates around here, you know how they are, which is probably why your in Oakland and not on the sidelines here.

  42. Bucsfan77 Says:

    The only thing Gruden gave us was the Raiders pay book, he didn’t win the SB on his coaching, he won it on the back of Kiffens defense pure and simple. He even stated so win he hoisted the trophy, he then said watch what he does the next year. .. same thing he did to the Raiders, dismantled the team.

  43. Joe Says:

    The only thing Gruden gave us was the Raiders pay book, he didn’t win the SB on his coaching,

    Warren Sapp will vehemently disagree with that.

  44. Eric Says:

    Tampa has such an interesting fan base.

    The only thing they hate more than losing is winning.

  45. TOM Says:

    Chucky will have the Raiders in the playoffs long before Bucs. Also I predict he’ll have the Raiders in the Super Bowl within the next five years.

  46. Bucsfan77 Says:

    The only thing Gruden gave us was the Raiders pay book, he didn’t win the SB on his coaching,

    Warren Sapp will vehemently disagree with that.

    I’m not saying he gave us the actual play book, but he knew their weaknesses and knew how to exploit them. Sure Sapp would say that he was a egotistical trash talker ever since he was in high school in Apopka, yes he is one of the greatest DT in NFL history. Yes Gruden game planned and won the SB, but if it was any other team I don’t think it would of been such a lopsided game. That team was not Grudens, if we had kept Dungy i still belive we would of won anyway, that defense was too complete for any team to handle.

  47. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Eric Says:
    “Tampa has such an interesting fan base.
    The only thing they hate more than losing is winning.”


    Well said, Eric. Wow, I have to admit that I am a bit taken aback by a lot of these comments today.

    With the UNREAL amount of losing that we as BUCS fans have had to endure since the beginning of this franchise…. you would think that more TB fans would hold in absolute REVERANCE the years that meant so much to us, with wins, playoffs, and a Super Bowl.

  48. Bucsfanman Says:

    Boy am I a fan of revisionist history! Apparently some of you have forgotten what it took to get the ONLY Bucs coach in our history with a Championship ring.
    Gruden should never have been fired. Yeah, I said it. He had issues, no doubt, but he has passion and is a WINNER.

  49. Buccluck Says:

    LOVE JOHN GRUDEN MAN! Always have always will. Regardless of what any haters wanna say he brought us a super bowl championship and I think he’s a hell of a coach! Wish him the best of luck!

  50. Rod Munch Says:

    I’ve always enjoyed Gruden – at least when he wasn’t destroying what McKay and Dungy built so he could sign Charlie Garner and every mid-30s injured offensive lineman in the land.

    Anywho “shut the f@$@ up” is a great comment – I’m shocked the millennial d-bag didn’t burst into tears when he wasn’t praised for his catch.

  51. Rod Munch Says:

    Really entertaining video, thanks for sharing. I think if Dirk did a mic’d up when the refs kept telling him how many timeouts he had left Dirk would be saying thank you, and can you remind me again in 15 seconds – also maybe explain how delay of game works and how, as a head coach, you can use timeouts to save your team from getting a delay of game.

    Dirk, you won’t be missed.
