“Love It”

January 29th, 2019

Stoked about the Bucs.

Bucs fans, how dare you not get excited about your team! Why, even a popular radio and television personality anchored in New York City is geeked for your Buccaneers, baby.

And that man’s name is Adam Schein. He’s the host of “Schein on Sports,” heard weekday mornings on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, “Time to Schein,” seen weeknights on the CBS Sports Network and “That Other Pregame Show,” seen Sunday mornings during the NFL season on CBS Sports Network. Joe caught up with Schein briefly as he was racing between his radio show to his TV show production meeting today at the Super Bowl Media Center in downtown Atlanta.

Joe asked Schein for his take on the Bucs signing new coach Bucco Bruce Arians and Schein raved about the move by Team Glazer.

“Love it!” Schein told Joe. “Love it for Jameis. Love the staff he has put together. Love Todd Bowles. Absolutely energized about what’s next for the Buccaneers.”

Joe thinks most Bucs fans are in agreement with Schein. The Bucs seem to have hit a home run with Arians.

Soon, we will learn who Arians believes is the wheat, and who he believes is the chaff.

    its always good on paper….lol….BA and his staff are an up grade from the staff that produced back to back 5win seasons thats for sure…..


  2. Robert Says:

    love the hires, the staff, the dicisive nature of getting it done quickly.

    oh, and no more excuses for crabman. BA BETTER HAVE A BACKUP PLAN!

  3. Destinjohnny Says:

    At some stage do u need good players or am I the crazy one ?

  4. diggler Says:

    I was so underwhelmed with this coaching change. Still, very underwhelmed. Where was the splash?! Just a bunch of retreads trying to put the band back together. Yikes.

  5. Iamabuc Says:

    I get the feeling about these new hires and all that, but here we are again in the yearly “we look good on paper” narrative. I’m holding all my enthusiasm for preseason games. Once I see the first 3, I’ll now were we stand. Sorry but it’s a true bucfan life…..anyway I’ll always Go Bucs!!

  6. The Buc Realist Says:

    To hear some of the sheep and local media, you would have thought they hired the greatest staff in the last decade!!!!!! I guess “stars aligned” is code for, “they were all unemployed”!!!!!! But some can sheep can relate!!!!!! Word on the street is that 813bucboi has had his “stars align” multiple times as well!!!!!!!!! Some have to wonder is how this great staff that finish 3rd, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the division that was not as strong as the NFC South!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The 2019 season will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. martinii Says:

    IMO this new regime will turn several average players into good players, eliminate a few over the hill or dysfunctional players, and add a few surprises. I think the strength in the Arian era will be letting players play to their skillset while developing a winning culture.

  8. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Just saw a pretty crazy stat on Rojo:

    He had 44 yards on 23 attempts in 2018, but he had 47 yards after contact.
    7 receptions on 9 targets.

    That’s not enough touches at all to get any guy going.

    Not counting on anything from him but damn it would have been nice him get a better opportunity for touches with any decent blocking

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’d better watch out….I may get so excited I’ll “Up-Chucky”

  10. Lord Cornelius Says:


    The NFC West at that time had 2 SB contenders in the Seahawks & 49ers. And the Rams were easily as good as the worst of the NFC South any given year.

    It’s debatable which division during which time was stronger IMO.

    BA never was 4th I see in those 5 years; which is where the Bucs typically sit. We sure as f*ck haven’t been top 2 in a long time.

  11. Tmax big brother Says:

    He looks like Jeff goldblum

  12. Lord Cornelius Says:

    “The 2019 season will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    What are the “answers”? Because this is the most meaningless prediction of all time without context lol.

    That the roster really is horrible? That 5 wins is what we should be expecting relative to talent?

    How are you trying to spin this all into an “I told you so” that you crave down the road?

    When we turn over a lot of the roster are you going to say “See Sheep – I told you this roster isn’t good enough?”

    If we do really badly will you say “See Sheep those coaches were unemployed for a reason like I said”

    If we do really well will you say “See Sheep I knew we needed to move Gerald McCoy and draft DL” or relate it to some random thing you wanted that you can correlate to the success after the fact?

    Where are you exactly going with this man?

    At this point you have said so much sh1t that you haven’t said anything

  13. ChipBuc Says:

    My God diggler what a negative person you must be. Almost every losing nfl team would love to have a 2 time coach of the year, trying to turn their team around. I guess anything short of Belicheck or Reid won’t impress you. Try to be a positive person once in awhile, you might like it.

  14. The Buc Realist Says:

    @lord of corn

    The Bucs were 2nd in the division in 2016!!! Was that so long ago? But 49ers were only good in his first year, after that they would have been 5th in the NFC South!!!!!!!!! and the Rams were not any good until the BA last season!!!!!!! he did do alright against a good seahawks team that was solid thru his tenure. 4 wins 5 losses and 1 tie was the record against the Seahawks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. BucEmUp 7 Says:

    Destin Johnny heres what it boils down to.Everyone is so stuck.on one or the other when it comes to why this team failsnyear in year out..Its like a bunch of hillbilkies with pitchforks screaming “sheep” at each other. One side thinks its the GM and the talent, the other side says it’s the coaching.

    Every team needs talent upgrades and every year every team makes changes. To say the bucs dont have holes would be moronic, but same goes for the majority of the rosters out there. The Bucs need talent upgrades without a doubt, but had Bruce Arians been the coach the last three seasons with yhe same gm.and same roster the results would be better.

  16. 813bucboi Says:


    check your facts man!!!!!!!….nfc west was one of the toughest divisions when BA was HC!!!!!!!!!

    this staff is an upgrade over the previous incompetent staff and that not even up for debate!!!!!!!!!!…..BA is better than dirk as HC and/or OC!!!!!!…..check his resume!!!!!!!!!!

    “real” bucs fans want to know why you wanted to retain a HC that went 5-11 back to back years….lol….

    “real” bucs fans want wins!!!!!!!…not excuses!!!!!!!!!!


  17. stpetebucsfan Says:

    @Lord C

    Realist likes to use “alternative facts” because he is a stable genius. If you wish to know what a football genius he is just read his posts. LMAO

  18. Loyaltotheend Says:

    Educated fans realize Arians was successful with qbs when he called the plays and was directly involved with their development something he won’t do here

    Arians is trying to get paid and get his guys paid that’s it

  19. 813bucboi Says:



    he’s setting himself up for failure….again…lol….

    he hasnt learned yet…..after week1 win vs the saints he was all i told you so 813…..after week2 win vs philly he was i told you so 813….this staff will get us to where we need to be…..

    then the “L’s” started to mount up and he became silent…..then he started taking shots at the roster….

    imo, BA wont give him the benefit of satisfaction…..BA will cut/release players that we already expected to be shipped out…..we’ll draft decent and the staff will develop them…..winston will play well….and the “W’s” will start to pill up….

    i’ll send him a kango that matches his skirt!!!!!!!


  20. 813bucboi Says:


    you think he wont be successful because he wont call the plays?….lol….

    dirk called plays for winston…was he successful?….did he develop winston?….

    c’mon man…lol….educated fan you are NOT!!!….lol…


  21. Locked In Says:

    LC “spin this all into an “I told you so” that you crave down the road?” LOL! crave…

  22. Loyaltotheend Says:


    So when was Arians successful where he didn’t call plays?

    There is no track record of him being successful without calling plays

    I’d be more confident if turning Jameis into a consistent qb wasn’t left up to Clyde Christensen and Byron Leftwich

    Just common sense

  23. Bob in Valrico Says:

    @Bucboi ‘
    Your incessant campaign to blame everything on the coaching staff is getting
    There are many facets to the game you choose to ignore. It is up to the players to play their best and respond to coaching. No coaching staff can win when you have 83% turnover to touchdown ratio. Do you really think Brent grimes and
    DJAX responded to coaching. How about Swaggy Baker, T J Ward ?
    A GM has to put quality players on the roster . Licht’s signing
    free agents like Anthony Collins, J. R. Sweezy, Swaggy Baker, T J Ward,
    DJAX, andMitch Ulrein are just a few of his signings that failed to help the team.

  24. The Buc Realist Says:

    WOW 813bucboi is either a liar or delusinal and/or both!!!!!!!!!!!! I usually just step over crap and never look back, but you are telling way too many lies!!!!!!!!!!

    The Buc Realist Says:
    September 9th, 2018 at 4:24 pm
    Hold them accountable!!!!!!

    What a game plan by the coaches!!!!! Huge game from Fitz and the rest of the offense!!!!! Coach Smitty gets kudos as well for pitching the shutout in the 3rd quarter with the duct tape defense!!!!!! That was the deference!!!!!!! Coach Smitty got the rook’s and new guys stand up for a quarter!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    how is that “status” woe now!!!!!!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    None was pointed at you, It was at Joe, and all my post have been in moderation since, ( and some don’t even show)!!!!!!!!!! I have always said that the roster was bad, even when your boy loser lovie was losing with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE difference was that classless clown lovie was in charge of the terrible roster and picking them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now you can go back to being the tard that you are, and when Joe approves this hours later you can read it as well!!!!!!!!!!!

    The 2019 season will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. 813bucboi Says:


    mike bajakian and monken couldnt hold CC and BL’s jock strap…lol….

    bajakian was unqualified and monken had his play calling dities stripped mid season….then given back with no improved results…..

    leftwich has been learning from BA since his days in PITT…..and he’s a former NFL QB….

    but i guess we’ll both have to wait and see….


  26. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Since 1976, last season was the only time I can remember not being excited and optimistic about the coming season and that was because of zero significant changes in the coaching staff (Smith mid notably). I am every bit as excited this year as I was with Jon Gruden hire. Can we win the super bowl this year? Who knows, but why not? The offense Gruden inherited was just as anemic as the defense Arians inherited and look what a few strategic changes accomplished. Hell yes I’m excited. I can’t wait!

  27. 813bucboi Says:


    ive said numerous of times players have to step up….and they did play better on the defensive side of the ball once smitty left…..

    but i cant blame the players if they are being coached by incompetent coaches and continuously put in position to fail….and arent being developed….so i guess spence is just a horrible player right….he forgot how to play after his rookie season…..

    these coaches never adjusted when things went wrong…..winston/fitz throws a pick on a deep ball to a wr and what does the OC/HC do on the next possession?….throw another deep ball….lol…

    djax, ward, grimes and baker were surely coach-able until they arrived here….i wonder what happened….they werent being coached properly, didnt beleive in dirk and we now know why….he is not HC material….strong minded players saw right thru him and ran right over him….

    no doubt licht made some whiffs but yall acting like every player he drafted and every player he signed thru FA were all lousy players not worthy of being in the NFL….lol….

    were you satisfied with the coaching and development of the players under dirk?….did he deserve to get fired?…..


  28. AKickInTheBucNuts Says:

    BA and his staff bring Hope. (real Hope)

    Something that’s been missing here for years.

  29. BrianBucs Says:

    Love my Bucs, but not overly excited yet. More cautious optimism.
    Will be excited when I see improvement on the field. Right now it’s just all hype

  30. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Tell you what. If the losses mount up(again) BA’s cockiness and tough guy persona will wear thin with fans. We once gave Dirk a Godfather painting and turned rabid on him within 2 years.

  31. 813bucboi Says:



    its not even worth going back and fourth with you…..

    your a fraud and BA will expose whats left of you!!!!!!!!

    spin all you want buddy, but you cant spin those back to back 5win seasons!!!!!!


  32. tmaxcon Says:

    BA biggest hurdle is the glazer clowns not the game of football nor the job but overcoming the incompetence that is the Buccaneers organization that is going to be tough especially for a fragile old man.

  33. The Buc Realist Says:


    Nope, and they got fired like I said they would last offseason!!!!!!! and those 10 wins in 2 season were brutal!!!!! but even worse and hopeless was trying to watch hapless incompetence of loser lovie smith with those 8 wins in two seasons!!!!!

    I know reading and comprehension is not your strong point, But I said for mos the the season that new coaches will be brought in to fix JW3 ( I thought the gm would be replaced, I was wrong on that)

    and that they should have started the rebuild last year with trading out old gmc and others to get a younger faster “D” !!!!!!!!!!!!! Where was I wrong!!!!!!!!!!

    The Buc Realist Says:
    July 16th, 2018 at 10:39 am

    name anyone else that has had 5 good games in a row!!!!!!! And you are wasting time with this joe!!!!!! Jw3 is going to get the coaches and gm fired after the year, then the new coaches and gm will be told to “fix” jw3 and to sell the fans on a “fresh start”!!!!!!!!

    The “real” fans want the world famous JBF confidence poll for JW3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Bucs 14 Says:

    Why do I feel like Charlie Brown lining up to kick the football Lucy has placed? Every year hope builds anew for this Bucs fan, only to be crushed by about the 4-5th game of the season. This year I am not going to believe the hype until I see differently next season. So Lucy, I ain’t gonna try to kick the football.

  35. Bob in Valrico Says:

    The coaching staff made some mistakes, especially on defense. And Dirk had only one tool left to fix Jameis. He benched him and IMO finally got through
    that he had to protect the ball better. This is Jameis ‘s responsibility as it was his responsibility to Play up to the expectations as the number one pick in the draft.
    Turnovers were an issue he also had in college. Suspensions and poor play
    after returning from suspension are solely on him. Franchise QB’s have a
    standard to live up to and so far his potential hasn’t been fully realized.
    As for all the free agents I mentioned you can’t prove that they were coachable
    elsewhere ,I think not, because they were let go by other teams. IRA reported Baker was lazy. He couldn’t handle doubleteams and was pushed into LB’s TJ Ward was let go by Denver by his coverage skills were not good enough. I could go on about how Jason Licht failed to do the proper vetting for the players he selected in free agency.
    As for Noah Spence ,he has two serious injuries to his shoulder that held him back. Spence main skill is the speed rush. Don’t really know if its because of the injury or him trying to play at different weights in different seasons. I will say this, for him to be an complete DE he needs to develop a bull rush and be able to stop the run both of which he has struggled at.
    As for the coaching staff, change is needed but I will put some on the blame on both the players and Licht’s poor evaluation of talent and character. This was a bad roster and the coaching staff has to have better players who are willing to be developed.
    To be fair What Koetter did have a hand in coaxing good seasons out of Doug Martin ,Charles Sims, and Jameis in his first season. 9 Wins is far better than
    the previous coaching staff accomplished in two years.
    As for the deep ball Jameis needs to spend more time in the offseason
    fixing his mechanics to throw the deep ball from the pocket as well he does on the run. Jameis needs to step up and meet expections. IMO he let both the team and coaches down with his inconsistant play and suspension.

  36. Defense Rules Says:

    @813bucboi … “but i cant blame the players if they are being coached by incompetent coaches and continuously put in position to fail….and arent being developed.”

    Wow bucboi, I see you’re still mired in your ‘Which came first, the chicken or the egg quagmire’. Was it that the coaching was so miserable or that some of the talent they were trying to develop was just meh at best? And the answer is … YES. The coaching no question left a lot to be desired, BUT … the talent they were trying to ‘coach up’ was lacking in a number of position groups.

    Playing ice hockey in college I tended to be rather aggressive (years ago the saying was “I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out” … you can figure it out bucboi). Playing aggressive hockey was fun, but I ended up in the penalty box far too often for coach’s liking. He preferred ‘smart hockey’ as he said (apparently getting the daylights beat out of me didn’t qualify as ‘smart hockey’ to him either … who knew). I’m convinced that our Bucs haven’t been playing ‘smart football’ and we’ve paid the price in terms of losses. We beat ourselves far too often. There’s no substitute for talented, highly motivated players who exhibit superior discipline & great judgment out on the field, but there’s also no substitute for quality coaching. The two are inseparable.

  37. Defense Rules Says:

    StPete … Did you read what tmaxcon just wrote about BA? … “going to be tough especially for a fragile old man”. Careful tmaxcon, you treading on thin ice when you call BA an ‘old man’.

    Remember … “Old age & cunning will overcome youth & skill every time”. (He’s all yours now StPete … your turn).

  38. BucThis Says:

    Is anyone getting the feeling that “Realist” and “Bucboi” are the same person with different “names” consistently arguing with himself? I mean it’s entertaining….and either you are the same person or you both need to get a room…

  39. Defense Rules Says:

    @Bob in Valrico … “To be fair What Koetter did have a hand in coaxing good seasons out of Doug Martin ,Charles Sims, and Jameis in his first season.” Had forgotten all about Charles Sims. I used to like him as a ‘situational back’ but often felt that Koetter asked him to do things that really weren’t within his skillset (like run between the tackles?). But his 2015 stats were quite impressive IMO … 4.9 YPC on 107 rushes and 11.0 YPR on 51 receptions. Almost 1,100 combined yards on 177 combined rush/pass opportunities. Also had 4.7 YPC in 2017 (he was only healthy in 2015 & 2017 … only got half-seasons due to injuries in 2014 & 2016). Still, Sims was an excellent pass blocker IMO as well as being good in space. Never did understand letting him go, and then keeping RoJo & Wilson & Rodgers as our primary backs behind Barber.

  40. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Good story DR. This team lacks some quality players to execute properly and limit untimely penalties. You can’t make up for lack of toughness in football with senseless penalties. This team needs an infusion of talent on the O line,D line,
    RB and back 7 and Licht hasn’t put us in a very good salary cap position to
    fix our problems overnight. Wish BA all the luck in the world. But I really think
    we may need a Christmas miracle to right this ship.

  41. Dreambig Says:

    Holy crap, we have heard this story every few years since Gruden. Now the only game in town is wait and see. Fool me once ….. Fool me 5 or 6 times … well ….

  42. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Sims was cheap insurance, funny he got an injury settlement. Thats a novel idea, wish we could done that for J R Sweezy or Mitch Ulrein.

  43. Todd Says:


    I bet you’re the type of dude who goes to your kid’s first play at school and leaves saying, “I was underwhelmed with the acting, the directing and the core story line.”

    If you’re underwhelmed with BA and the staff he put together, you’re not worthy to call your self a Bucs fan. Couldn’t believe it when I read your post.

    Who would have OVERwhelmed you? “Hey, we should have hired Mike Smith as HEAD coach and out Dirk back at OC!”

    Seriously, try not to be such a Debbie Downer. I think you wrote that just because you want some negative attention. Well, it worked. Now go engage with an Oakland Raiders forum or something. Perhaps they’ll impress you more than arguably the greatest coaching hire in Bucs history.


    Give me a break.

  44. TOM Says:

    To listen to BA he would like to keep everyone. Stay tuned.
