NFL Network: No Surgery For JPP; Neck Re-check In September

May 10th, 2019

It might be time to pull the plug on the Bucs career of Jason Pierre-Paul.

Yeah, NFL Network says JPP won’t have surgery on his broken neck. Apparently, he found a few doctors who said he could heal without it. Joe can’t blame the guy; surgery is dangerous stuff.

But the problem here for the Buccaneers is Tom Pelissero’s report says JPP will require a re-evaluation of his neck in early September. And if all goes well, JPP could be chasing quarterbacks again in October.

Frankly, what good is that for this season from the Bucs’ $14.9 million investment at defensive end? And that’s a best case scenario for JPP. What kind of football shape would he be in? He’s a freakish athlete, but there are limits — and he’s 30.

Joe wouldn’t blame the Bucs for moving on and maybe using some of the JPP savings to pick up veteran DE Allen Bailey off the street (six sacks last year), or to pay Gerald McCoy, or just banking the cap money and rolling it over to next year.

Joe likes JPP but is just trying to keep it real. The odds don’t appear to be in the Bucs’ favor. Then again, John Lynch’s bad neck in Tampa became four consecutive Pro Bowl seasons in Denver.

    if they do that to JPP might as well do the same with McCoy and bring in multiple players…shape wise I think JPP could have a couple of months of everything football conditioning and practice type routine other than contact,on his own, and when medically cleared be ready to go in a few weeks if sooner….still with the age of McCoy and JPP….lets just turn the page and go eyes forward

  2. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Tough call, one I don’t envy.

  3. LakeLand Says:

    JPP want the Bucs to keep him off the NFI list. He may come back strong like John Lynch, then again he may not. But we are talking $15 million here. That’s a whole lot of money for a cash strapped team.

  4. DB55 Says:

    The fact that JPP is willing to play after breaking his neck (crazy to me) but McIceCream won’t play after breaking his hand tells you all you need to know about the EX-leader of the defense.

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Banking the cap money for next year?…..are you serious?

  6. firethecannons Says:

    No! Keep JPP–the dude is special and will be next year and the year after. He is player who fights through adversity and is an extreme positive role model. It is unfortunate he is injured, Bucs need to double down on what we have and coach em up. Hoping JPP stays close over next 4 months to provide some moral support to the team. Absolutely believe JPP will come back–probably his neck fracture is not “serious” otherwise he’d be in a halo brace not getting discharged from the hospital within a few hours. No reason not to think he won’t heal completely.

    HE ISN’T LIKE ANYONE ELSE! do not give up on him, we are blessed to have him on our team

  7. LakeLand Says:

    It’s not like they are a playoff team with JPP

    But these are the Bucs

    A .500 season is like a Super Bowl season

  8. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    Do a new cap friendly deal with him for three years. Getting rid of him would be a huge mistake. He will be back stronger then ever just see how he returned from a few fingers blown off. The man is a beast!

  9. Todd Says:

    Worse case is November then and best case is September not too bad then

  10. Buc4evr Says:

    tough decision for the Bucs, but count on them making the wrong one… it’s a Bucs life. Lol. Seriously, at this point there is hope, so I would try to keep him.

  11. Jeffbuc Says:

    He will be back before you know it. The bucs will be doing great at that time. And everyone here that is flipping out in 5 short months will be saying if we are playing this good now imagine what are defensive will do next week when we get jpp back. We are going to be even better. This is the year. Like Aaron Rodgers said RELAX

  12. Ndog Says:

    Negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative negative. A GAME HAS NOT BEEN PLAYED, THIS SITE IS TURNING INTO TRASH. THIS USED TO BE THE ONE GOOD SITE TO RELY ON WHY DO YOU HAVE TO DESTROY IT! FOR GOD SAKE WE HAVE DEAL WITH BEING PISSED DURING THE SEASON CAN YOU PRODUCE ANY CONTENT THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY BE HAPPY ABOUT…… FREAKING RIDICULOUS AND WEAK.

  13. LakeLand Says:


    Maybe this worthless, waste of a NFL football team has turned their fans into negative fans. This crappy team hasn’t won anything in 17 years. No playoffs in 11 years.

    What is their to be positive about?
    Another Top-5 draft pick?
    Another coaching staff?

    The hell with this team!!

  14. Bird Says:

    Best case scenario is 4-6 months with rest
    That’s best case.

    Broken neck and he plays in trenches. What happens when a player lowers their head and pops him In the chest and his neck snaps back.
    He’s 30.
    For us older folks it’s harder and harder to get thru certain injuries. I have blown out disks in neck and back and still play sports but it hurts . Some days it hurts to lay in bed. And mine are non contact sports.

    Just imagine playing at highest level in one of the most violent sports.
    Too risky and they can save some money
    It’s a fractured neck they are saying is gonna heal.
    Yah . If he wasn t playing football then I would agree.

    Time to let him go.
    Sucks. He was such a good player with heart.

  15. Ndog Says:

    So cry about it you freaking baby. Grow up, sports is supposed to be fun, if you can’t get excited in the freaking off-season what’s the point?

    I’m excited about having a great young QB, WR, ILB, TE a very good LT, LG, RB, TE, DT, S and hopefully 2-3 goods corners from the 5 we have drafted over the past few years. Lastly we have a 2 time NFL coach of the year on our sideline, how many teams can say that? Attitude is a choice and this site and many of it’s posters choice is to be whiney little babies. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, give me binkey you freaking crybabies.

  16. Lamarcus Says:


    Ppl are mad right now cuz we drafted a MLB. Not a dlineman and what BA said about GMC

    So we get these sour stories. Joe, you got to let it go man. It’ll pass man. Every story you wrote since probably you found internally they wanted the MLB…. every story has been ending with Doom of something. I get it. I got the nerve to talk because I talk crap but I come here for some hope since you started 2008 or 09? This is the first time I’m seeing this. What’s going on?

  17. LakeLand Says:

    No one crying over this MINOR league team. This is the Big Boy League, the NFL. The Yucs are BOTTOM FEEDERS. They don’t belong in the NFL!

  18. LakeLand Says:

    The two female coaches they hired are probably their best coaches


    Welcome to Sucksville, USA

  19. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    No Lamarcus you and the admin isn’t mad about a MLB… some of us, like me, wanted it. To those who didn’t get your panties out of a wad and stop whining. Maybe, just maybe, you were wrong with who you wanted.

  20. Ndog Says:

    What proves people morons is that they don’t know their history. We drafted a DE Gaines Adams over Luke Keukely due to the NEED of a DE even though LK was clearly the better player and BTW the player I wanted. How did that work out? It is simple you go with who you believe is the best player and Licht had done that time and time again. He is clearly not always correct but I would much rather have too much talent at one position than overdraft crappy talent at all of them.

  21. Lamarcus Says:

    But anyway. Seems JJP could be cut bait. So unfortunate and bad timing and even worse luck. Especially with GMC lingering.

  22. Cubano Bucanero Says:

    Well that was fun while it lasted

  23. LakeLand Says:


    All of this back and forth debate during the offseason

    And the Bucs will suck as usual

  24. Jeffbuc Says:

    Ndog I’m with you this use to be the best site. Could read comments have fun listen to what other bucs fan think. And it use to be the same thing we were all angry over the obvious. Now it is 3-4 guys joe let’s hijack the comments with there negativity. I wish he would also put a stop to 3-4 commenters. We don’t need to here there same tire rhetoric over and over. Like you said it is the offseason time for every bucs fan to be optimistic. But no we have to read the comments of these 3-4 chicken littles. I wish joe would just ban them. I don’t he realizes how bad those 3-4 cancers piss everyone off and make them not want to come to this site. You would think on a true bucs only website you could come here to feel good but now it is negative negative negative. Everyone just whines and complains. I get so pissed coming to this site hearing all these stupid comments. But yet there is no other site like this so I keep coming back. But joe needs to realize for every 1 of me there are ten others … Jeff, why exactly do you read the comments? It’s like Joe going to Five Guys and ordering the veggie sandwich, why would Joe do that? He wouldn’t. Most readers don’t look at the comments. There is plenty of positive on this site daily. The archives tell the story. –Joe

  25. T REX Says:

    Dump him. Now.

  26. LakeLand Says:

    A 5-11 team is in cap hell

    And fans are talking about being positive


  27. Jeffbuc Says:

    Ndog I was with you until you said we drafted Adams instead of kuechly. Then go on your rant on how you new linebacker was are biggest need that year. But sorry to be negative towards you. But we drafted mark Barron in that draft. Not a defensive lineman. Not that it makes it any better that we chose Barron over kuechly.

  28. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Jeffbuc the attitude on this board starts at the top. Soon as White was drafted it’s been a constant theme of bash everything. Things aren’t all roses with this team for sure but negativity is encouraged, and rewarded, in here right now.

  29. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Lakeland you are to this board what you think the Bucs are to the NFL

  30. geno711 Says:

    Does Joe know whether the Buc’s team doctor has had a chance to do his own review of JPP?

    I sure hope that JPP has a full recovery and is able to play the game at a high level again whether it is with the Buc’s or someone else. Sounds like he is going to be all right. I am not hearing anything about any Halo device, or any cord compression or spinal cord involvement, or any disc displacement.

    Also, Pelissaro saying that he will be checked in 4 months just seems lacking detail. I am sure that he will get x-rays and MRI’s every month. Now the doctors might have told him no physical activity surrounding his neck for 4 months but if the healing goes well, they may/will see complete union within 8 weeks. (It has been 1 week).

  31. Jeffbuc Says:

    Ndog and you called people morons because they don’t know there history. Then state a historical fact that is wrong and not just a little wrong. But the guy you said we drafted had already passed before like was drafted. You were only off by 6 years. So just a tip never state you guys don’t know history and then be off 6 years in bucs history. Gaines Adams was drafted in 2007 like in 2012. People went from middle school to college in that time frame.

  32. ARGH_M8E Says:

    This team is down to one eye, one leg, and missing a hand… But still an eye patch, a peg leg, and a hook from being anything. Arrrgh it’s a BUCS life!!! Shhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeee-it!!! Get it together!!! PLAY FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!

  33. LakeLand Says:

    I’m the most accurate psychic in America

    I pick the Yucs to lose every year

    And I’m the Nostradamus of the sports world

  34. Jeffbuc Says:

    Sc buc fan I agree that’s what I am talking about. The message board last year begged for tmax to be banned. Then finally he banned him only to allow the next day for him to return under a different name. Then allows him back this year. To say the exact same things verbatim he was saying two years ago to get banned. He says the same thing every post and pisses people off yet joe does the koetter way of mentioning him in a recent article. Joe did the koetter to Jackson move to tmax made him the captain. Rewarded him for his bad behavior. But will bash koetter for doing the same thing.

  35. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Lakeland it’s spelled psychotic not psychic

  36. geno711 Says:

    Lakeland most academic sources have suggested that Nostradamus’ predictions are vague and useless.

    As are your comments on this site.

  37. Bird Says:

    Ndog blasts people for not knowing football like he does.

    Adams over Keukly


  38. Race to 10 Says:

    This site wont give fans a glimmer of hope

    If it takes 5-6 months to heal explain again why it’s a problem to get reevaluated in 4?

    You insinuate the team isn’t very good but cut jpp to save 14 mil and do what exactly? Team wasn’t good according to you with jpp what could possibly be done with it to change your assessment just curious?

    I say RIP off the bandaid and cut both jpp and Geraldine because 90% have nothing but negativity and zero expectations of a good season

  39. Ndog Says:

    Sorry I got mixed up in my anger I was thinking of when we passed on AP for Gaines or when we passed on Aaron Rodgers for Caddlic Williams and on and on. The point is still the same don’t pass on great players for need and yes people who don’t get that are morons regardless of my mistake I’m anger and frustration. I just cannot understand how people can be slamming the White pick and neither he or Allen or Oliver or Williams or anyone else has played a freaking preseason snap. Heck I was on record saying my favorite player in the draft after Williams was Oliver but dang I’m not going to rip our brand new rookie before he plays a snap. People hate on our own players day one and then this website says their”mentally weak” or this team ” doesn’t know how to win”, I wonder why when their forced to play in front of the most mentally weak fan base in all of sports. Well guess what this fan bases most popular site doesn’t know how to be a decent fan since that’s what they claim to be. You know I believe the Browns are getting way more hype than they deserve but it’s not fair to call us Cleveland south cause they have MUCH, MUCH better fans than we do and I was born and raised in Tampa so that kills me but it is true.

  40. Ndog Says:

    Congrats I made mistake Bird that’s the first time you’ve had anything on me buddy so enjoy it. Nobody’s perfect I was pissed and got my players mixed up and it will probably happen again some time but between now and then I will nodoubt prove the likes of you wrong triple the amount of times you see me make a mistake.

  41. Coburn Says:

    It’ll be a other beckwith and even sweezy or cal nicks situation. Stick a fork in him. He’s done. And Yeah he can do some conditioning before taking hits but try doing squats and thr like with a broken neck. . I guess he could try front squats.. but he’s going to be limited and likely nevwr quite the same

  42. Ndog Says:

    Heck maybe Spence, Barret or the rookie take advantage of this opportunity and break out. You never know sometimes all it takes is a opportunity. It happen with Kwon he got a chance and became a productive starter.

  43. Jackwagon Says:

    For all those saying what the worst case scenario is here, the WORST case would be to dignify the prognoses of these 3 witch doctors JPP paid to then tell him what HE wanted to hear, then re-evaluate in September, find out they really were just full of it and his neck didn’t heal, THEN NEED the surgery anyway, gone for the season!

    So for a cap strapped team, not gping to the playoffs, cut him loose NOW for a dead money hit of $7.5 million while we can still make some mediocre alternate plans, and MOVE ON. Then cut GMC, pick up whomever suitable thru roster cutdowns. MOVE ON…

  44. James Walker Says:

    Well, he has a history of coming back from injury.

  45. Joe Says:

    For all those saying what the worst case scenario is here, the WORST case would be to dignify the prognoses of these 3 witch doctors JPP paid to then tell him what HE wanted to hear, then re-evaluate in September, find out they really were just full of it and his neck didn’t heal, THEN NEED the surgery anyway, gone for the season!

    You make a good point. But in the end, Bucs doctors will have to clear him. Just because JPP may have found some legit doctors or Haitian healers doesn’t mean the Bucs’ medical team will agree.

  46. Wesley Says:

    Think they need to move on unfortunately.

  47. Ndog Says:

    I give you guys are right let’s just forefit the season tonight.

  48. Pryda...Sec147 Says:

    No Risk it No biscuit!!!!!

    Go Bucsss!!!

  49. Miller5252 Says:

    I’ve only been on this site for a very short time but been a Bucs fan for a long time. What I don’t get is the hate for White…. ok he’s not the player you wanted or the d line player available in a stacked d line draft. I see the people calling GMC was not a leader, weak, not the player we needed but we draft a person with a leader attitude and known to make his team better….. why is that wrong to draft a guy that’s baller and a leader even though he’s not your guy and Tampa could really use a true leader to build around. Yup, a lot of bad luck seems to follow the Bucs but it would be nice to see some positive stuff about some of the players before we even see how they play. Glad I found the site…..but let’s see some more good things like the guy who is blind in one eye that could be a baller.

  50. Buccernutter Says:

    If he’s not cleared by doctors before week 1 or at least close, we can cut him without financial responsibility, right? Since it occurred off the field.

    JPP’s doctors opinion won’t matter in the end.

  51. Bird Says:

    Ladies and gentleman

    I give you Ndog
    Only ever made 1 mistake . He literally just said that.
    He is usually right / all knowing/ just all around amazing person.

    What a hypocrite. Talk about negative. Pretty sure you ripped into McCoy for being garbage earlier last year. Ripped into coaches …etc etc.
    Just don’t criticize Jameis cause then you are an idiot.

    Ndog. – you are the best bruh

  54. Buc1987 Says:


  55. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    The Bucs should move on but Licht Weight won’t. He traded for JPP and it’s one of the few non-disastrous moves he’s made in 5 years of grinding the Bucs into the ground.

  56. dcbucsfan Says:

    put him on PUP list, shave off some cash from the non-football related injury clause and bring him BACK.. easy call for his type of proven player caliber! what the hell is wrong with ya’ll?

  57. FireJasonLicht Says:

    You can tell who just became a Bucs fan. The ones talking about stay positive. In positive that we will be picking 1st next year and that this whole clown ass regime will be gone I’m positive about that!!

  58. PriMech54 Says:

    Time for all the neurotic panic ridden Buc fans to eat crow on this one. I’ve been beating this horse since the news broke. Dude’ll be fine and Bowles will send his dogs to get after it in his absence, then he’ll come back in or around weeks 6-8 just in time for that tough road stretch.

  59. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Another draft pick, a 3rd, basically wasted…it’s the continued failure of drafting and wasted draft picks that have this team as a cellar dweller

  60. Pete I Says:

    Well, at least Ndog isn’t talking about how great Jameis plays, that is where he’s really delusional. A broken neck is not a 4 month thing… Bet he doesn’t play a down in 2019 for anybody. Chasing QB’s in October…Unlikely!

  61. El Buco Realisto Says:

    This will be interesting to see if JPP straps on the helmet, Plays a couple of snaps during the regular season, then after the game, hear how his neck hurts, and how he will need surgery!!!!!!!!!

    That’s how you pocket an extra 7 million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My neck from all the head shaking from all the bad decision gm light weight has made!!!!!!!!!!!! Do I have a case?????????????

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. Defense Rules Says:

    Love JPP and chances are decent that he makes it back at around the 5-6 month point; let’s say by after the BYE – optimistically. So we then have a 30 year old 4-3 DE coming off a fractured neck who hasn’t practiced in Bowles 3-4 defense like EVER. And we’ll have SOMEONE on the roster holding down his starting spot who undoubtedly wouldn’t be nearly as good as the player that JPP has been. Wow, talk about messy. And risky.

    NFIs stink, but THIS ONE stinks more than most because of WHO it happened to and WHEN it happened. For what it’s worth, JPP makes about $1 mil PER GAME and he’ll miss probably at least games at the start of the season. Bucs have the OPTION to not pay him under the NFI clause for time missed. Personally I’d rather see us KEEP HIM but reduce his salary be $6 mil then use that to pick up the best replacement DE we could find. Doesn’t help pay for the rookies I know, but that was never JPP’s problem or fault. At least this way we HOPEFULLY pick up a decent replacement who can help us while JPP heals up… AND BEYOND.

  63. Tom Edrington Says:

    Love it — everyone’s a doctor; everyone probably thinks they can do a better job with the site than the Joe(s), and so forth and so on…..

    I gotta go with that day back in the late 70s when the press guys at a John McKay conference started sounding like commenters on this site and McKay calmly declared:

    “Gentlemen, you know nothing about football….”

    and with that he left the room……one of my most memorable moments….

    The Joe(s) do a wonderful job of providing constant content for digestion or indigestion, it’s tough coming up with new stuff, but they are thorough and consistent……they can’t help it that the franchise is stuck in the mud…

  64. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Years ago, when the Buccaneer message board shut down, all the people from there migrated to various websites to get their fix. I tried a few at the time, and settled here because at the time, Joe ran the website with class.

    Just up until a year or so ago, he had the standard of avoiding propaganda and making sure he had some real information before sharing it here. It meant being behind the eight-ball a few times, but at least we knew there was always meat to what he shared.

    I came here mainly because even though some of us disagreed at times, Joe did not allow multiple usernames, and the haters/trolls were limited. We all mostly respected each other.

    These days, as soon as rumors start, we see them here. No validation required. Your opinion stated as fact. –Joe Is it wrong? Matter of opinion. But I liked it the old way. These days, there are users who have 3-5 names to comment under, Your opinion stated as fact. –Joe and they use this to create the illusion that many here agree with what they say.

    I think that if Joe would once again implement the one username only policy, things would vastly improve here. Again, your opinion on Joe’s policy and/or enforcement of policy, stated as fact. –Joe

    But my real concern is this: People left the alternatives because they became infected by the sort of things we see here now. They came here to get away from that stuff. Clearly, it worked for Joe, because just look at how the website popularity has grown. But those other websites were popular once too. One even published a magazine in print because it was once the goto place to be. But they lost that. The question to ask is: Why?

    Frankly, Joe could turn off the comments here and little would change, other than Joe having more time to spend on what 99.5 percent of the readers care about. –Joe

    I don’t intend to leave this place, but I have to admit it has been on my mind from time to time lately. And if I am thinking it, then others must as well. If that happens, all that will be left are the haters and trolls. How will that affect the websitre popularity?

  65. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    On topic, I do not believe JPP is intentionally dragging this out. I believe he knows his body and fully intends to return at the start of the new season. The whole October timeline is a conservative estimate. Sometimes people heal faster, sometimes they heal slower. JPP has always been a fast healer.

    It is not a mistake that the evaluation will be in September…which is when the season starts.

  66. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    El Buco Realisto Says
    “This will be interesting to see if JPP straps on the helmet, Plays a couple of snaps during the regular season, then after the game, hear how his neck hurts, and how he will need surgery!!!!!!!!!”

    There is nothing in JPPs past which suggests he would do such a thing.

    I get being skeptical after the guys we’ve seen brought into Tampa over the years, but JPP is a different animal altogether.

  67. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Only Tampa fans would whine and moan for an elite player for a decade, and then want to cut him after a year.

  68. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “I think that…”

    Is not stating opinion as fact. The words ‘I think’ clearly make it a matter of ‘opinion’.

  69. Pete I Says:

    Bonsai is back wasting bandwith again…JPP is a fast healer…hahahahahahaha

    From a neck injury? Good luck with being a fast healer on that…

  70. Eric Says:

    Maybe I’m nuts but this seems like a much better prognosis than anticipsted.

    Might get back on the field this season. No surgery.

    Go bucs.

  71. Costa Rica John Says:

    You have to keep JPP. More than likely he will play this year. Even if he is a third down guy for a couple games while he gets into football shape. He is the best pass rusher the Bucs have and they need to keep him as long as they can. Go Bucs!

  72. Jackwagon Says:

    EVERYONE KNOWS…(and it was implied above as that was also what I was referring to) that at any point the Bucs medical personnel are the ones who make any definitive diagnoses across the board with all resulting ramifications. EVERYONE who is a football fan of any team, knows THAT.

    This very issue…seems to be a central theme often in threads around JBF. JBF’s worth to the Buc fan of any sort….is for information ABOUT THE TEAM that we fans, AFTER checking with all other available sports media outlets, we DON’T already have. Breaking Bucs news. Perhaps additional insights here and there. It certainly is not for washed-out perceived condescending rhetoric about “football 101” stuff.

    Bring the fan who spend voluntary free time here, Bucs’ breaking news, and the affiliated therein.

  73. Jackwagon Says:

    No WordPress objectionable characters in the above post, so as many here including myself has said, get this sign-in off moderation…girls. Your “feelings” aren’t part of this business. Be a professional ladies.

  74. DBS Says:

    Bet your bottom dollar if it was Jameis you would be 100% ok with it. Then figure a way to keep him here for next year to be evaluated again.

  75. James Walker Says:

    They said he career was over after the fireworks accident as well. Look how that turned out. I wouldn’t write him off quite yet.

  76. BigMacAttack Says:

    JPP will be fine. The injury isn’t that severe and within about 90 days, he’ll be ready to go. Don’t make a rash stupid decision and cut the best player on your defense. If anything, Jason Licht probably holds out hope on many players for longer than he should. JPP blew half of his hand off and you think a hairline crack in a neck-bone will stop him. Fat chance. Don’t make another Bennett type mistake again.

  77. wideleftandright Says:

    Heres one reason why the Browns fans are more tolerant with their team.

    Team Win —Loss Pct all time
    Cleveland 469 — 490 ( .489 } 469 divided by 68 yrs = 6.89 wins per

    Buccaneers 260 — 415 ( . 385 ) 260 divided by 42 yrs = 6.19 wins per

    If you have been a fan from inception and you see the same scenario over and over then im sure you understand the fans angst.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.

    The price of tickets arent unreasonable but per win are extremely high.

    My man Petey D. aka Buccaneer Bonzee…(jelly) bellyaching to the Joes because people light him with his own nonsense. Tough typing his way on the comments while crying “foul” on others. The absolute best part is the threats to maybe leave…but of course never does. Roaming gnomes, frisky fairies and his granny jumping on a trampoline are just a few of his “strengths”.

    Bottom line—JPP has earned the right to have us wait a few months.GM has not produced at more than an eight million dollar level.RESTUCTURE OR CUT HIM LOOSE!!!!IMPORTANT TO LET GM GO SO THAT HE CAN REGAIN HIS HONOR.

    I luv all of you guys eternal optimism. I’ve been there..done that..repeatedly over the years. Only to be disappointed, Sooo I’ll wait and see the product on the field. Winning franchises know..they are gonna at least have a above average worst. But us? We hold on to prayer beads, and voodoo dolls
    hoping things will change. I got off the roller coaster long ago. I’m a Bucs fan. I just don’t..hold my breathe. Because I know..its a Buc Life baby!
