“We Don’t Fear That At All With This Group”

May 29th, 2020

Anyone watch Rob Gronkowski’s debut on “Game On!” the other night? Joe did.

All this recent pop culture attention for the Bucs has value, general manager Jason Licht explained.

The seventh-year GM told the Tampa Bay 55 podcast that the hype and spotlight enveloping the Bucs is all good, and Licht said he looks forward to how the Tom Brady/Gronk effects will get other Bucs characters and talents noticed.

“They’re going to bring out personalities in our other players, too,” Licht said.

“And I think that the nation is going to see that Lavonte David is a pretty damn good linebacker. You know, that’s just one example. I think our offensive line is going to be, people are going to find out it’s a little better than the perception is. So, you know, it’s exciting.”

Fear of the spotlight becoming too much for the previously off-the-radar Bucs, Jason?

“We don’t fear that at all with this group,” Licht said.

What a wild ride this 2020 season should be, one of the most fascinating Bucs reality shows in many years.

    Well now that Cappa has come into his own as a player and we don’t have an aging right tackle who is a liability in the run game that was good for a drive killing penalty a game, Our O-line is actually poised to be one of the better units in the game.

    Last year i’d say that we were league average. This year we could legitimately have a top 5 O-line.

    87- long time old friend. I am not telling you what will happen rather speculating based on science and what has already occurred. Everyone wants there to be a season and I am at the top of that list but I cannot ignore what is actually happening. The owners and NFL execs are going to push the power of positive thinking publicly but prepare for all outcomes. They also have the longest runway. Wanting a season to happen and needing to keep people safe may end up being mutually exclusive.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled program….. I’m confident that most of the Bucs players will thrive in this newfound spotlight. Energy level on the field is going to be through the roof.

    Can I buy a week one ticket to be in the middle of the LVD defensive pre game speech? The thought of Shaq, White, and David is already got my heart pumping battery acid.

    Joe deleted about 30 comments here that were Sickness related and not about the Bucs. –Joe

    It’s a shame you didn’t take the time to read what I posted before you deleted it Joe. I posted a great idea to save our season and have it start on time. I now understand why you did it. No problems. I guess the Saints are allowed to be discussed because of Jameis. Go Bucs!!!
