“Where Are The Personalities?”

April 14th, 2019

Joe spent time with a handful of “casual” Bucs fans last night, guys who watch about 90 percent of Bucs games and pay close attention to the team during the season and during key offseason times, but definitely not year-round.

You know the type; guys who have no idea who Alex Cappa is or which Buccaneers skip spring practices.

After one guy asked Joe, “Where are the personalities on the Bucs?” The rest chimed in to agree. They don’t see a “personality” that excites them, or a guy they feel they absolutely have to watch play.

The consensus was that America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, used to be that guy. But the group was down on Jameis, not to the point where they want him off the team, but they’ve lost confidence and want to see him win and be consistent.

Interestingly, they felt Doug Martin was a guy they loved to watch, and there were Kwon Alexander fans in the group. Surprisingly, Jason Pierre-Paul didn’t move the needle with these guys. O.J. Howard seemed to be the guy they had most hope for in 2019, when it comes to being “that guy.”

Mike Evans? This group likes him, of course, but they were more fired up about DeSean Jackson and Ryan Fitzpatrick last year before he fell off the map.

So where are the personalities on the Bucs to fire up casual fans and be the face of the team? At this point, Joe supposes it’s the head coach until the team starts winning or a player captures the imagination of the NFL.

    It’s best there ARE no immediate personalities that emerge until the real football starts.

    Have the overall TEAM be the personality.

    A cohesive group of single-minded men and a couple women coaches.

    And no dog.

    If JPP doesn’t move the needle for these guys then that’s pretty much all you need to know about the value of their opinions. Bozos.

    Low standard bucfan confuses personality and passion with bad character… bucfan needs their guys to loose quietly and play the god card every 5 minutes. Talent, effort and everything else is ok if you just lose quietly and give the impression you care about their town when the cameras are on. Bucfan calls mediocrity legendary and yearly confuses popularity with greatness. Glazers have trained the sheep well. Bar is really low….

    A number of winning teams have ” Personality deficiencies”. I don’t give a rats asz about that. Lets see some wins huh? Good coaching will bring wins. Wins will put all of these needless conversations to bed.

    this 1,000,000%!!!

    We need answers from #3 in 2019. No more arguments that he was the sixth pro bow alternate, or QBR. I want CONSISTENCY AND SUCCESS IN YEAR 5!

    With the exception of them losing confidence in Jaymiss I’d have to say that they are a bunch of morons/fantasy football goofs.

    I will agree with Joe that BA is our current “personality” and that’s fine by me until we shed the quitters and start reaching our true potential.

    For all you, it’s all 3’s fault have forgotten this franchise has been rotten well before jameis arrived and will be rotten well after 3 is winning championships with a real nfl franchise. it’s hilarious that you hold a young quarterback 100% accountable for a completely inept organization but you same fools have given cancer93 a decade of free passes and excuses while he led the most embarrassing defensive units in NFL HISTORY!!!!! In the words of a TRUE LEGEND Ringo Starr from Caveman… BUCFAN DUMB!!!!!

  8. Not there yet Says:

    Guess you were talking to a bunch of people who had to take off their fitz magic beards after just a few games.

    Don’t care about personalities just wins and winning makes it easy for guys to open up and come out of the shell. Who cares about the personalities of perennial losers? Win and it will all come to light

    Draft Will Grier in the 3rd round

    So Joe was hanging out with the Glazers last night? Cool story!

  11. DanBucsfan Says:

    Well said tmax. I agree with you once again , Hopefully we can lock 3 up after this year and he can lead our team to those championships. They gotta crawl before they can walk and with all the issues on and off the field, its time to start walking lol. And although I don’t hate 93, I do realize its time for a new “leader” to take the bull by the horns on defense and bring the tough nasty step on you not help you up to this team.

    … after 3 is winning championships with a real nfl franchise.

    Are you saying Jameis is already one of the best QB’s in the league? You are kidding? Right? Are you giving odds that he wins championships?

    What are the odds in your mind to win an NFC or AFC championship? Or are you just saying his championship will be a division crown?

  13. DanBucsfan Says:

    Well said Tmax. I agree with you more and more lately. 3 is best thing to happen to buccaneers since we won super bowl. Still young and with better coaching 3 should start to show everyone ( even haters ) that he is our franchise Qb. But some don’t see it and wanna roll dice in draft year after year or think a journeyman Qb will be all pro after hand full of good games lol. And as far as 93, I like him and 3-4 years ago he was a game wrecker, I agree we need a new leader on def who brings that nasty dawg step on you not help you up mentality.

    On my phone and didn’t think comments went through, sorry guys

    @Joe … “At this point, Joe supposes it’s the HEAD COACH until the team starts winning or a player captures the imagination of the NFL.” B-I-N-G-O Joe!

    BTW, any significance to you mentioning Cappa, Winston, JPP, OJ & ME13 (in that order) but NOT including Vea or LVD in that list of current Bucs ‘personalities’?

  16. Arian Nation Says:

    How about drafting a young kid from Memphis that not only rushed for 22 TD’s, but caught 3 TD passes, threw another and returned a kick off for a TD.

    Instant offense equals instant personality.

    The fans will be chanting, “DARRELL, DARRELL, DARELL!!!”

    Sounds somehow familiar.

  17. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Jameis can’t do it by himself any more than Brady can.
    Need a running game and better protection from OLine.
    And most of all a D that can hold a lead.
    I think we have a coach that won’t whine to media and hold team accountable.
    Jameis just needs to cut down interceptions.

  19. rrsrq Says:

    Devin White will be that guy

  20. unbelievable Says:

    Lol if this story doesn’t sum up the sadness of the majority of this fan base / franchise, I don’t know what does.

  21. The Fighting Schiano’s Says:

    Coverduece nailed it.

    If these butt clowns felt kinda meh about JPP, NO ONE cares about their opinion. Between him and Crazy Carl Nassib, we finally saw some DE’s pressuring the QB.

    I’d imagine these same “fans” dont frequent this site either. We may all disagree at times but we’re fricking die hard.

    No more articles citing the opionions of these “pseudo fans” Joe.

    They’re not on your level OR ours.

  22. wideleftandright Says:

    Those folks you were asking questions to were johnny come lately types.
    They like the desean jackson types because it soothes there egos.
    there is plenty of personalities on the bucs.They just need to be all brought together and play as a TEAM.Not individual personalities.

  23. m0j0 Says:

    I’ll take the professional get it done types like Lavonte David, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, etc. any day of the week over D. Jax types.
