Bucs Training Camp Already Underway

June 29th, 2019

FOX-13, the wise TV channel that employs JoeBucsFan.com columnist Ira Kaufman on its pregame show during football season, also has a reporter who is all over the Buccaneers beat.

He’s Kevin O’Donnell, who also is known for hunting down players outside of One Buc Palace.

O’Donnell did just that this week.

He found a handful, plus former Tampa Bay linebacker and current Redskins captain Mason Foster, busting their butts with the help of trainer Yo Murphy, the retired Bucs receiver.

It’s an organized effort, not some sort of touch football and beer session.

“It’s been rough all week and all summer really, but that’s indicative of what it’s going to be like during training camp,” said Ali Marpet, who added that his true off time is in the winter, not this time of year.

    Sad but unfortunately true.

    Marpet said most of his down time comes in January and February. I’m about tired of that bullspit.

    Lol @ go bucs

  5. Dreghost Says:

    it was great to see Ali out there grinding along with Nassib!
    Hopefully other players are doing the same on their time off, winners mindset should never be ok with losing and it seems Ali is working his butt off to be a winner

  6. JimmyJack Says:

    Ooops I’m usually good for reading all the comments before I post.

    Pretty funny gobucs72 that we both got our nerve hit with the same line.

    That’s reality for all players except playoff and wildcard teams. It’s as much on the coaches and owners that hired these pathetic coaches in the first place. Did anyone think Dirk koetter, lovie smith, Greg schiano and raheem Morris scream playoff caliber coaches? If so the problem is your delusional. BA screams playoffs and success everywhere he’s been, not his fault the fan base has a loser mentality. It would be a waste of his time to try and convince any of you when his record speaks for itself. You complainers can’t be season ticket holders. It would be dumb to pay for tickets for something you act as if you hate.

    I applaud everything positive these players are doing, stay healthy, out of trouble, come back in shape and don’t be that guy. Gonna be the most interesting season in a long time because most of us with common sense knew dirk was a loser even after the 9-7 season

    we shouldve kept foster

  9. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    I’m impressed with how light footer Ali Marpet is for a big white guy.

    In the old days, OL men would gain 50 Lbs in the off season and then work to sweat it off in training camp.

  10. JAB83 Says:

    He realized what he was saying as he said it.

    He then said but not this year!!!

  11. JAB83 Says:

    “This time though, its mostly about training.”

    Just saying, if the big man wasnt miss speaking. He was calling out his teammates. They are preparing for a Super run. Hopefully it plays out!!!

  12. Mike Johnson Says:

    Say Ghost of DH.. Ali is a good football player regardless of color. Thats one of the best things bout the NFl. It ain’t bout color. Ists about the color of Winning.
    And our color has been Pewter Losing. We..need to change that…immediately
    if not sooner.

  13. Scottish bucbob Says:

    Yo Murphy, the great Scottish Claymores receiver.👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  14. BringBucsBack Says:

    “Practicing in Tampa gets you ready for training camp (practice) in Tampa.” Of course it does Ali.;)

    Where are the other o-linemen?

  15. mark2001 Says:

    So he is telling us the way it is…and some guys have a hemorrhoid. Lighten up guys… he would like to be busy in January more than any of us…it would mean big dollars as a baseline. Yes BBB…you asked the most important question. The question you guys should be asking is, where are some of the other linemen, most of all the current crop of under-performing players vying for a starting job on the O line.

  16. Thunder_Sack Says:

    “…along with a bunch of former Bucs.” 58 second mark.

    Was that Donald Penn?!

  17. tmaxcon Says:

    Marpet is just another average player low standard bucfan slobbers over while collecting basement titles

  18. #1bucsfan Says:

    Sorry T your wrong again just like you are about ever other player you cry an moan about. Marpet has bin ranked a top 10 guard by a bunch of diff analysts players and coaches. You couldn’t be more wrong. Guess what an nobody cares about his feel good story either coming from lower rank college team an how the Bucs brass tried to screw him up by playing him at 3 diff places on the o-line yet he still excelled at each position. You have to be one really negative guy to not see that. Which you are because he can’t win us games all by him self makes him no good in your eyes sorry this is a team sport it takes more than 1 above average lineman to win games man

  19. YoungBucs Says:

    Can we just get an unethical china doctor to make 10 more clones of Marpet please.
