Notes From Wednesday & Thursday Practices

May 30th, 2019

Our beloved Buccaneers continue to practice on the hallowed fields of One Buc Palace and inside the Glazer Shed, aka the on-campus indoor facility.

Spring practices, OTA Days 8 and 9, were in full swing yesterday and today. Unfortunately, the Buccaneers locked out the local media.

However, the fantastic news is that reporter Carmen Vitali was taking notes and providing a report. Joe read her analysis of the no-pads football sessions and summed up both days for you below:

Wednesday (indoors)

  1. O.J. Howard and Chris Godwin can catch and run, and they did that a lot.
  2. Rookie Scotty Miller made a diving catch.
  3. Ronald Jones made a one-handed touchdown catch.

Thursday (outdoors)

  1. Howard showed more skills and drive.
  2. Vernon Hargreaves had an interception in the end zone against an unnamed QB.
  3. Carl Nassib and Devin White show a lot of energy and enthusiasm.

This got Joe excited for the final day of spring practice (OTA Day 10) tomorrow at One Buc Palace, when Joe and local media will be allowed in.

Mandatory minicamp is next week. Will Jason Pierre-Paul come to watch?

    @Lord acorn

    That would be great, but I’ll settle for anything above .500 and a punishing D this year.

    Culture change.

    unnamed QB hmmmmm…..the intern needs to go work for the KGB bucs media

  12. K2 Says:

    Bucs hire Bucs Win coach and fire Bucs lose coach…to stay under the 90 coach limit.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Not only are they keeping the media out…..with 3 notes per day…..they are deliberately limiting the news……

  14. Waterboy Says:

    Hargreaves with an INT, fake news!

    Geez Joe: you got nothing on the Buccaneers fraudulent claim associated with the BP oil spill. ??? Joe wrote about this days ago. –Joe You gotta think this is on the mind of the employees (players) of the organization. Particularly, when times get tough…they will be more apt to quit. But I just remembered that this team consists of a bunch of thugs and washed up bets looking for a payday AND those people are quick quitters anyway. All of you need to simply Google Buccaneers BP. It is very sad!!!

  17. TrustingBa Says:

    Howard is going to have a HEALTHY career Pro Bowl year. Same with Mike Evans!!!!

  18. unbelievable Says:

    These summaries crack me up. But thanks Joe, I know you would prefer to be there taking your own real notes.

    @Pittsshore, you should try scrolling back a day or two.

    Pouting much?
    “Wah! They won’t let me watch!”
    Very unbecoming.
    LOL. Hey, Dave. Joe is happy to sit at home and drink lemonade and listen to NFL Radio. Joe would prefer practice, of course. The Bucs make their own rules and that’s just fine. –Joe

  20. DB55 Says:

    Will Jason Pierre-Paul come to watch?
    Bruh I was going to ask you this exact question. Is he required to come or will they let him stay home?

    Secondly, did the kicker make the kick?

    I love that they have an hermana writing the ota notes but man she loves cliff hangers.

  21. Jim Says:

    Interception thrown by an “unnamed quarterback”! Great concept! Hope this carries over into the regular season…

  22. Dave Pear Says:

    You’re kidding right?

  23. firethecannons Says:

    Thanks Joe–yeah–I look forward to your notes, if it wasn’t for that I would of lost interest in this team as I am now very far away. You are doing the NFL a service. Still having a hard time getting behind the Cardinals–I keep wanting them to fail–maybe once they jettison Steve Keim it will be like a whole new team.

  24. Bird Says:

    I can sense the sarcasm all the way from Orlando on joes response to the notes taken from the reporter aloud to watch .

    1- see spot
    2 – see spot run
    3- see spot take a dump

  25. WhatTheBuc Says:

    Even though everyone is kidding, it’s nice to see some positivity.

  26. SOEbuc Says:


    HEAR! HEAR! Bring back defense to Tampa Bay. Sad the NFL doesn’t allow punishing defense anymore, though. Making the playoffs would make me jumping for joy. Second round or further would have me at a 10+ extreme geeked level.
