“RoJo, RoJo, Where Have You Gone?”

December 11th, 2020

Frustrated Bucs fan turns to song.

This will be music to many Bucs fans ears.

In more ways than one.

Bucs fans are so fed up with the Bucs not feeding Ronald Jones the ball (for reasons not quite clear) to help the offense snap out of its first-quarter doldrums, they have decided to perform music so the Bucs brass (Byron Leftwich?) hears their pleas.

Run the friggin’ ball with one of the more productive runners in the NFL, the lyrics say in so many words.

Week after week, Bucs coaches, if not park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking Bucs quarterback Tom Brady, speak confidently that the run game is critical and they need to feed RoJo more.

Yet on gameday, Bucs fans are assaulted with nonsense like having running backs carry the ball four times (total) in yet another loss as the Bucs seem to be crumbling (three losses in last five games) to the point of maybe missing the playoffs.

Loyal JoeBucsFan.com reader @pete_ukulele_punk (his Twitter handle), an expat who now lives in Germany, is running out of patience with the all-talk, no-do public schtick of the Bucs claiming they need to get the run game rolling.

So @pete_ukulele_punk decided to write a song, hoping the Bucs hear him and other fans when they holler, “Run the ball!”

Will the Bucs hear it?  More importantly, will the Bucs heed the words of those advocating for a more balanced attack that may further open up the pass game and thereby equate to more points?

The offense has seemingly been stuck for too long in second gear.

Pete may not be Eddie Van Halen, but his song tugs at the hearts of many fellow Bucs fans.

    Love it. Run his friggin azz!!!

  2. WiscoJoe Says:

    That was beautiful

  3. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Ron did no wrong?

    1) Dropping passes (although the one he caught vs. the Chiefs gives us hope)
    2) Fumbling after catching passes (at least 2 that I remember)
    3) Missing blocks in pass protection

    He’s good at running the ball. He has a lot of stuff to work on, though.

    How about this one? “If it wasn’t for Bunting, they’d be punting”

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I will say this……when Rojo breaks free, it is a thing of beauty….not sure if it’s the uniform…..or Rojo just looking really, really good.

  5. Tom Petty's Other Joint Says:

    Consistent run blocking wouldn’t hurt either.
    More times than not, There’s not much running room to be found.
    Rojo is magic when there’s room to roam.

    Joe in Michigan
    Don’t take life or yourself that seriously.

  7. PSL Bob Says:

    OK, we got us an anthem for now. It definitely encapsulates my thoughts on the subject. Agree with Joe in Michigan, however. He does have his issues at times. Hopefully, those will be corrected. In recent weeks, he’s had at least one catch coming out of the backfield that went for a TD – a thing of beauty!

  8. richbucsfan Says:

    Hmmmm, when a singer has to use the f-word and GD it’s not much of a song. Stupid lyrics. I get the point, but it sucks as bad as the Bucs offense.

  9. Joe in Michigan Says:

    The Coroner: Yes, I take myself too seriously. Thank you for your criticism, I’ll try to be like you from now on.

  10. gp Says:

    Wow, everyone’s a critic
    The man wanted to make a point and seeing as BA and BL don’t seem to be hearing us, he put it in a different format.
    I have my doubts, but maybe one of them will hear it and say “it all makes sense now, let Rojo run!”

    Oh, and BTW Richbuc, there is a large volume of music(?) on the airways that include those and other words that some may deem even worse. Some get bleeped and some don’t. You don’t like it, tune to a different station!

    It’s getting to the point that you can’t open your pie hole without offending someone. SMH

  11. Desertbucsfan Says:

    Run rojo run

  12. Todd Says:

    OMG that’s an INSTANT CLASSIC!!! 👏👏👏

    I can’t get the tune out of my head, nor do I ever WANT to get it out of my head.

    I have a new musical hero.

    Well done!!!

    Nailed it!

    🎤 DROP!!!

    Byron, are you tapping your toes to the beat of this song?

    Bucs fans sure hope so.

  13. SOEbuc Says:

    Still have to be smarter than the Dirk Leftwich classic run on first down EVERY time.

  14. Jason Says:

    Horrible song. No lyric about the Bucs being undefeated when Rojo gets 20 carries. Plus “gone” and “wrong” don’t actually rhyme!

    The above sentences are known as sarcasm lol.

  15. KnoxvilleBuc Says:

    I liked the pick of Rojo coming out of SC. He was young and a lot of upside. I don’t think anyone knew of confidence issues or how major his catching problems were. But he’s worked is tail off, bulked up, and kept his speed. While dealing with poor blocking in year 1 and some of year 2. Good for him to keep grinding away. He has some serious footwork and balance. I see that type of footwork out of very few backs in the NFL. He has some potential to be really good. Loved the song!!!

  16. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Some of you crack me up. Who is better at RB on this team than Rojo? Nobody, that’s who. He should be getting 20 touches a game minimum. Fournette and Shady are just along for the ride. They have done nothing spectacular for this team. Rojo is the future and more importantly the now.

    “Wow, everyone’s a critic.”

    Music was much better when lyricists used innuendo and double entendre as opposed to graphic language which requires no artistic ability whatsoever.

    ***Music was much better when lyricists used innuendo and double entendre as opposed to graphic language which requires no artistic ability whatsoever.***

    I agree wholeheartedly

  19. Jason Says:

    Where’s the ghost of George Carlin when you need him?

  20. richbucsfan Says:

    gp, your response to Bush’s coke is the opposite of what it was to me even though Bush’s is saying the same thing. Exercise: Sit down where it’s quiet. Stick your finger down your throat to cause you to puke up the alcohol. Rest for 10 hours. Take Tylenol to relieve the hangover. Then, take your computer and throw it into the Hillsborough River. There. Now, you will be able to live a contradiction-free life.

  21. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Great job Pete. That’s a classic!

  22. BucTooth Says:

    Buc’s talk the talk but can’t walk the walk when it comes to the run. I wonder what the first down play in the Bucs first serie’s going to be against the Vikings go ahead you can say it run up gut for 1 yard or loss of 1 or 2 yards nothings going to change with Brian Sandwich come on man.

  23. gp Says:

    Not at all richbuc.
    All I said to you was if you don’t like it, change the station.
    I know what I like and that’s what I listen to. That doesn’t change what is aired elsewhere.

    Once again

    It’s getting to the point that you can’t open your pie hole without offending someone.

    Excellent tune! Hat tip, pete!
