The Dunkaneers II

June 12th, 2020

Remember when the Bucs were compared to a college basketball team by Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht?

It came after his first draft. Already with a tall receiver like Vincent Jackson, Licht drafted Mike Evans (one of the best draft picks in Bucs history) and Austin Seferian-Jackwagon in the first two rounds?

On paper, the Bucs had three skyscrapers who could go up and get the ball.

Licht suggested they would sky so often to grab lob passes from Stewart McClown that the trio would be known as the “Dunkaneers.”

Yeah, that didn’t work out so well.

Well, former Patriots guard Damien Woody of BSPN seems to think the Bucs are the newest version of Phi Slama Jama and Evans will be the next Darrell Griffith, Dr. Dunkenstein, and park-violating, home-invading quarterback Tom Brady will be the benefactor.

In a recent edition of “Stay in Bed,” Woody discussed how he thinks Brady will be rejuvenated by his new teammates.

“As far as Tom Brady is concerned, listen, I think this is the best group of skill position guys that he has probably ever played with in his entire career. A bunch of guys that are like basketball players. They have a wide catch radius and I think Tom is going to be in a great situation. His numbers are going to explode this year.”

It’s fun to think about but Joe confesses to cringing while hearing Woody try to resurrect one of the saddest periods in Bucs history. Those Dunkaneers finished the 2014 season dead last in the NFL.

But Joe does agree with Woody’s point. Not since Brady had Randy Moss has he had a receiver like Evans. And with Gronk on the field, that’s two guys with a shot at snagging a pass thrown anywhere near their street address.

    They finished last but drafted a future HoFer. Mike went off with McClown as a QB 12 TDS 6 1k+ yard seasons only him and Moss have done that and now he has Brady holy Crap he should end the season as #1 WR in all NFL my bet.

    I know old man Brady is going to be 43 this year, but I’m still going to be disappointed if he doesn’t put up Tecmo Bowl like numbers.

    All ME has ever done is make every QB he’s ever played with, including college, look like an all star.

    Godwin has tremendous effort and unusual maturity for a young player.

    If Tyler can keep his effort level what it was in college and learn from these two machines, we are loaded.

    In BA I Trust!

    [That’s simply inaccurate. Woody invoked basketball in his take. Unfortunately, can’t post YouTube videos on here any longer otherwise would. The video is on YouTube. See and hear for yourself. — Joe]

    This really could be the best receiver corps Brady has ever had. Evans, Godwin, maybe a resurgent O.J. and a fairly healthy Gronk? Better than he has had since the Randy Moss hookup. We DO need RoJo and Vaughn to produce in the passing game to be really successful though.

  7. SB Says:

    I never draft a QB before the 7th or 8th round but this yr I am taking Brady in the 4th.

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    I kinda feel a little sorry for my fellow Buc fans. Such hype, such anticipation. But the proof will be in the pudding. Brady is on his downside. Bellacheat knew when to hold’em and when to fold’em.

    Brady will put us in position for a legit playoff spot….I honestly believe Gabbert could pull off a Foles like role if called upon. This team is stacked with weapons, a promising defense, more experienced kicker….I believe an EFFECTIVE game manager can get you in the playoffs. We don’t need passing yds….we need wins.
