The Second Round Curse

December 25th, 2018

For years, even during the Chucky administration, the Bucs have been cursed with second-round picks.

Rarely this century have their second-round picks amounted to anything. The names are like a sordid Who’s Who of Ghosts of Bucs drafts past.

Just think of the names. (The bad) Dexter Jackson, Sabby the Goat, Roberto Aguayo. That’s enough to hit the egg nog a few times today just to try to make your memory go blank.

Well, Greg Auman of The Athletic has some information that will make any Bucs fan do a facepalm.

And there you have it. Anyone that thinks the Curse of the Second Round Picks is over should think again.

Besides, talk about a Christmas present. Stewart, RoJo and Spence are getting paid decent Team Glazer loot to watch games just like the rest of us.

    Three names says it all

    Bruce Allen
    Mark Dominik
    Jason Licht

  2. Topcoach1978 Says:

    With Jason Licht body of work how are the Glazers still even considering keeping him??? Yeah Dirk is bad but Licht is worse!

  3. donuts Says:

    Doug Martin ran for 100 yards tonight also. Bucs need to clean house and if they (new regime) decide to move on from Winston I am ok with that too.

    bye felisha

  5. Stevbobucsfan Says:

    Maybe that’s what the Bucs need, a better talent evaluator is this the scouts job the GM or both joe?

  6. Pick6 Says:

    Arron Sears, Barrett Ruud, Arrelious Benn, and you can probably pencil in Donovan Smith’s name onto that sad list unless the next coaching staff rescues his career from the current nosedive. i’m certain i’m missing a couple more

  7. Joe Says:

    Arron Sears and Arrelious Benn were actually not bad picks.

    Sears went mental. He was a damn good lineman until he developed issues (CTE?).

    Benn was one of the Bucs’ best receivers in 2010 (the last time the Bucs had 10 wins) until he blew out a knee. He was never the same after that.

  8. Waterboy Says:

    Benn was about to breakout before that injury. I was at that game in DC when he was having a big game before going down.

  9. Tom S. Says:

    The Bucks have been cursed with bad GM’s. Bad GM’s missfire on premium picks and build losing football teams. The answer to the curse lies in Mark Dominik 28-52 and Jason Licht 27-52.

  10. Tom S. Says:

    Ugh I apologize for the autocorrect on Bucs*

  11. tmaxcon Says:

    I bet the curse goes all the way back to the dungy the clown and the overrated McKay. They could not field a high school offense while wasting whyches defense

  12. Krojen Says:

    Yeah Licht is so good in the draft it offsets how bad he is in free agency. Wowie.

  13. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Jameis needs to learn how to draft.

  14. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Jameis needs to learn how to QB first

  15. SteelStudBuc Says:

    Hahaha he needs to learn how to count playclocks

  16. Whatinthebuchappend Says:

    No , jameis needs to learn how to grow up and also keep his hands to himself first.i feel since the beginning of 2015 that I have definitely seen enough of him at QB for the bucs ! I’d rather not watch this crap show with him anymore & realistically folks we can do just as good/bad with a new GM /coach/QB next season as we can do with giving one , two , or three of these knuckleheads another go ! Our Meathead of a GM has made some pretty piss poor picks in front of some studs , our knucklehead of a coach we all know can not game manage or adjust or put a consistent winning formula out on the field ” we have no identity ” and mr.magoo is so inept that when he tries too little we lose & when we all see he tries too hard we lose ! Let’s get a GM and a coach with a plan & they can go get a QB THAT CAN RUN THIER SYSTEM to a T….worth a shot

  17. John B Says:

    This is exactly why we are where we are – just a pathetic showing for decades in one of the easiest rounds to be successful

    Yet, wouldn’t surprise me if 2 of the 3 end up on another team and play for 10 years- cuz it’s a Bucs life we live

    Merry Christmas!!!🎁🎄

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Don’t forget Daquan Bowers……sure he played, but he didn’t play very well….not worth the 2nd round. And that goes for Price also.

  19. EA Says:

    Oh yeah another guy, Austin seferain Jenkins.

  20. AlteredEgo Says:

    Dexter Jackson…Appalachian State
    4.33 40 yard
    he is only 32 now

  21. down in the dirt Doug Says:

    The only way you keep Licht is if he agrees to form a committee to select free agents.Our new president of operations should also be on that committee.

  22. RustyRhinos Says:

    Tmaxcon, who knew Monte Kiffin was Floyd Peters. Thanks for that great information.

    Merry Christmas and safe and happy holidays to all.
    All I want for Christmas is to Win.
    Go Bucs!

  23. Season Is Over Says:

    Keep reaching to save Licht. No one is buying it.

  24. SOEbuc Says:

    Way to many idiots that think the Glazers are going to kick Licht to the curb after next week. A LOT more to being a GM than drafting. And he’s come through with plenty of good draft picks if that’s what you think it is. JPP for a third round pick and Nassib laying on a corner in Cleveland begging for change? Turns UDFA into all-stars? It’s this entire organization, not just Licht, that makes this team suck so badly. SELL! SELL! SELL!

  25. MTM Says:

    Licht is ten times worse than Koetter.

  26. Doctor Stroud Says:

    In order to break the Second Round curse, the Bucs need to break the GM Curse, the Head Coach Curse, the QB Curse, the Defensive Line Curse, the Offensive Line Curse, the Kicker Curse…

  27. BigMacAttack Says:

    Watching the Bucs play is enough to make a Nun curse.

  28. JDR Says:

    2016 we could have taken Derrick Henry and vonn bell instead of Spence and Aguayo… mind boggling.

  29. Destinjohnny Says:

    Let’s get mad at dirk because Jason can’t draft
