Taylor Heinicke Gets Most Snaps

January 7th, 2021

Got most work today for WFT.

If the Redskins are down to their third-string quarterback (now second-string backup with the booting last week of horrible quarterback Dwayne Haskins), that can’t be good news for anyone but the Bucs.

Redskins coach Riverboat Ron Rivera said earlier this week he could go with rotating quarterbacks. Part of that is because Alex Smith is battling a significant calf injury.

Rivera may be using more of Taylor Heinicke than he envisioned.

Per Washington beat reporter Rhiannon Walker, Rivera said Heinicke had the majority of snaps in practice today, two days before hosting the Bucs in the Super Wild Card round.

Washington has a punchless offense as it is with Smith. With Smith sidelined, the offense is just offensive.

Heinicke. Sounds like a car repair shop or a cheap knockoff beer.

    Heineke is very mobile, but Pablo expects Bowles to send the house at him 😂😂😂 he is going to be running for his life!

  2. Mort Says:

    Weird. My schedule shows they are playing someone called the WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM. Yours must be from 1999 or something. Probably should get that checked out.

    our defense made nick foles look half way decent….gotta come out and dominate…

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Steady diet of Peyton Barber will do the trick for us.

    Skins stink

  7. GMC hater Says:

    Are we going to have this argument every time Joe mentions the redskins? Some people get offended over the stupidest things.

  8. Steven007 Says:

    GMC, it’s the principle of the thing at this point. There is literally, currently no pro football team called the Redskins so it’s disingenuous at best and purposefully provocative most likely. By the way, I don’t have a dog in this fight. I still mostly call them by their previous name when I’m chatting with friends, some of whom live in DC. But it is what it is. And it’s not the Redskins anymore.

  9. gbobucsfan Says:

    Nothing is guaranteed, I still remember when Vinny T rolled off his couch and looked like an All-Pro against us.

  10. An Erection For Sacks Says:

    This is not a good look for you, Joe.

  11. Mike C Says:

    Great thing about America, is I can call a turd sunshine if I want to. Joe can call the WFT whatevers he wants.

  12. Cannon Says:

    Can’t call it WFT. Looks too much like WTF.

  13. alton green Says:

    if Bowles to Atlanta doesn’t do something with that soft zone, ANY QB can look like a pro-bowler

  14. GMC hater Says:

    Steven, don’t see how it is provocative. Calling the the WFT sounds dumb and calling them The Washington Football Team is just needlessly long. I don’t care what people call them but complaining about it every article this week seems petty when there is so much to look forward to with the Bucs.

  15. Tye Says:

    If the team formerly known as the Redskins place all there playoff hopes on a 3rd string qb then so be it… the Bucs will gladly take the win and move on to whichever team is next…
    just don’t get any unnecessary injuries that may compromise the next game!

  16. buxszntkt Says:

    I think one Joe loved the protesters and the other Joe condemned the protesters, yes we know which is which.
    Nice catch though @ MORT, I missed it the first read.

  17. Wesley Says:

    Until he Daniel Jones’s us.

  18. Doctor_Berto Says:

    Got some serious snowflakes on this site, get over it. How do you get through life getting offended at the smallest things? No wonder our country is going to sh**!

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The soon to be Cleveland Baseball Team……Washington Football Team…..

    The Florida State University Football Team…….

    What would happen if you had a city with two teams with nickname problems

    The LA Football Team #1……The LA Football Team # 2…..

    As our friends Laurel & Hardy once said: “Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into”

  20. Steven007 Says:

    GMC, it’s provocative because the proprietors of this here website as they like to call it, know it will generate some back and forth with us posters. And it has. And it has prior to this. And it likely will until this playoff game is finished and we don’t talk about the team anymore. Anyways, I don’t care that much for the topic I was just trying to answer your question.

  21. Tye Says:

    Some of you obviously have no sense of toughness is the best way I can put it…
    in a time in America when people were tough and REAL, they would call the opponent of the next game everything under the sun but their actual name… We called it trash talk…

    Yes!… that was before the time of participation trophies when a player had to actually be good to earn a trophy and it meant something!

  22. Steven007 Says:

    Tye, That’s a charming metaphor but it has zero to do with the topic being discussed. Joe is not being tough by using the name Redskins in a football blog. Period. And what does REAL even mean to you in this context? If you bleed you’re real. Not sure what you’re trying to say.

  23. idiaznet Says:

    Just FYI Florida State isn’t changing their name. The Seminole tribe has given approval and have scholarships tied to the name. The person who is the mascot gets a scholarship via the Seminole Indian Tribe.

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    The Washington Redskins.

    There I said it!

    Still the Baltimore Colts to me.
    Riggins was and always will be a Redskin.

  28. 68%fraud Says:

    The word redskins always makes me think of potato skins and that always makes me hungry So I’d rather not say it anymore. But not because of stupid pc, participation award generation

  29. adam from ny Says:

    it this heineken dude is the guy vs us, this game will be a joke


  30. pewterpirate99 Says:


    You soft candy ass pu$$ies really need to get a grip and thicker SKIN…….pun completely intended lol.

    They’ve been to the REDSKINS since their inception and I will call them the REDSKINS every time I refer to them. I refuse to conform to society’s softness and I sure as hell don’t give a rats ass about someone getting offended because of something so trivial.

    They’re a historic football franchise, get over it. If it wasn’t for the REDSKINS, the great Doug Williams wouldn’t of won a super bowl and been super bowl MVP. PENDEJOS LOL

  31. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    Joe is an instigator y’all know that.

  32. Joe Says:

    For those upset by Joe using Washington’s nickname (until they get a new nickname, it is still the Redskins), so it was perfectly fine for decades and then with a snap of the fingers it is all of a sudden an obscenity?

    Sorry, Roger Goodell doesn’t get to dictate Joe’s vocabulary.

  33. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    Oh and pewter pirate is a true patriot and historian and still refers to South Dakota as the Louisiana purchase ‘cause Dagnabit that’s what they used to call it. History and stuff I reckon.

  34. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Hell yeah Joe, sound reason but the sensitive crowd still won’t accept it.

  35. Mort Says:

    They did get a ne (albeit temporary) nickname. “Football Team”. Sorry that is so hard for you snowflakes to accept that the franchise has moved on and you haven’t.

  36. MamaP Says:

    It will be interesting to see what Joe calls the WFT when they get around to choosing a new name…

  37. Wesley Says:

    @Joe – But it wasnt perfectly fine for decades.

    LMAO, that’s adorable. When I say they’re a historic football franchise I mean as in NFL history. There have been MANY hall of famers that have played and coached for the franchise know as the REDSKINS, they’ve won super bowls. They’ve been a relevant part of the NFL history.

    Don’t try to turn this into something political or bring in your political views into this. Okay, F%CK SNARCKLE. LOL

  39. BucEmUp Says:

    If we play soft zone Im going to throw up

  40. Steven007 Says:

    Joe, with all due respect the Redskins is no longer there nickname. It was part of their official name obviously but is no longer. If you go to nfl.com or even Wikipedia you know which name they have there. I don’t think it’s a sensitivity thing, at least it’s not for me. But as a couple of posters have already mentioned, it’s simply no longer their name. As I said I use it in casual conversation too and I’m not offended by seeing it here but the fact remains it’s simply not the name of the team anymore. Or their nickname.

  41. I CARE NOW Says:

    Can we call them the Washington “Commies”?

  42. Wesley Says:

    Are you trying to make a point by using their old name? I’m just trying to understand why you would call them that knowing full well that is no longer the team name? I’m not offended, just seems a bit odd and completely unnecessary.

  43. I CARE NOW Says:

    Yeah the point is. Why do you care about the name so much?

    Here is a name you should care about


  44. Jeffbuc Says:

    Am I serious reading a bunch of grown men crying because joe called them the redskins. There name for the last 60 years. Everyone has to be offended for someone else. What a bunch of girly dudes we have in this world now. Redskins redskins Indian chief. 95% of true Indian Americans were not offended by the name and liked it. Pretty soon joe you won’t be able to say he or him. It will have to be the player said blah blah. Not he said.

  45. I CARE NOW Says:


    “Amen and Awomen”

  46. SB : Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    What Jeff just said.
    When they come up with a Real name I will start calling them that.

    None of us wanna watch a game w these people

  50. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    I still call the Chiefs the Dallas Texans? Is that wrong? 😎

  51. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    And BTW, if Joe ain’t changing his nicknames for Brady, Gronk, or AB, he ain’t changing his mind on the Redskins. Just sayin’.

  52. mg Says:

    Not wrong at all Bucs Fan Since ’76, I’d call it knowledge.

  53. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Damn, and I though this post was about their backup QB getting first team reps.

  54. BDub Says:

    Pewterpirate99, sounds like you’re still jacked up after storming the capital building yesterday. Calm down big guy. Save whats left in the tank for Inauguration Day. 🤦‍♂️

  55. Wesley Says:

    Just because something is one way for a long time doesn’t make it right. The term Redskin is just as bad as the N-word. Don’t even try to compare it with “Chiefs”. And in case you somehow didn’t know Native Americans have been trying to get that name dropped for decades. Come on Joe I thought for sure you were smarter than this.

  56. GMC hater Says:

    Are we seriously accusing joe of supporting riots and being racist for calling them the redskins? What happened to this comment section lol

  57. Coburn Says:

    Was this member of press actually able to observe it himself….? Cause I wonder if it’s a smokescreen

  58. Colonel Angus Says:

    Bucs should crush the Redskins. I do think the Redskins will keep it close early, but I expect the Bucs to put it on the Redskins in the 2nd half. The Redskins offense is pretty weak, although Antonio Gibson is a solid back. Think he is banged up though, I’ll have to check the Redskins site to see if he is playing. Bucs need to get revenge on the Redskins for that loss back 2005 playoffs.

    P.S. Redskins, Redskins, Redskins and Redskins. That is all. Go Bucs!

  59. Youngbucs Says:

    Wesley I agree with as a black man maybe I should start calling some in here crackers let’s see if I get banned. Redskins is to native Americans what the n word is to blacks. Shame on the joes for being simple minded it’s not a joke times are changing. Just because the name has been used for a long time doesn’t make it right. They have been fighting a long time for a name change respect it✊🏽

    Wiki Taylor Heinicke. He was an amazing college punter.

  63. Swampbuc Says:

    Bucs play down to their copmpetition.

    Trap game!

    Big pass rush coming.

  64. sgrd0q Says:

    It is a matter of time before the pirates of the world complain they are offended by the Buccaneers name.

  65. Jeff Says:

    I’ve seen 3rd string QB’s make the Bucs look like fools. This game is a trap and the Bucs can’t see it coming.

  66. Cobraboy Says:

    I agree with Jeff.

    This game is a trap. Ron Rivera knows the Bucs…and Arians…well. IMO, he’s one of the best coaches in the NFL, especially on defense.

    The Bucs OL will determine the outcome of this game. If they protect Brady, the Bucs will win. If they break down, don’t protect Brady, and start getting penalties, Brady is in for a long afternoon.

    I hope I’m wrong, but an 8pt. cover looms large.

    My gut feels like before the Bears game. The entire world was saying “Bucs for the big kill,” but the Bears are similar to the FTFKATR. The Bears, with a ferocious pass rush, took the wind out of Brady’s sails, and if I recall the OL was healthy that game. And Foles totally frustrated Bowles defense. Are the Bucs more talented than the Bears? Yes. Did that matter? No.

    I hope to see a healthy dose of 2TE’s and maybe Haig checking in on the edge.

    I would bet the under. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see a lot of points scored.

    Temp game time will be close to freezing.

  67. Cobraboy Says:

    @Youngbucs: please, call me a cracker all you want. Or any other name you choose. Just don’t make up slander and lies.

    The fallacy of your emotional plea is one has to care about the opinion of a person. In my case, unless I know you personally well, I have a terminal case of “Don’t Give a S#!t” about opinions.

    You and the rest of your Outraged PC Censorship Posse Control Freaks may lower the volume of public words spoken, but the Washington NFL team will always be the Redskins to me and dozens of millions of football fans.

    I guess your momma failed at teaching you the “sticks and stones” truism.

    Yeah, it’s a New World. I feeeeel* fortunate to have lived in the glow of freedom, liberty, and individualism in the old one.

    *a progism, as opposed to my usual “think critically of”…

    Haha Mort is in a big snowflake mood on a fine Friday morning, redskins redskins redskins

  69. UKBuccaneer Says:

    If the Washington football team had kept their nickname, then people would be quite right to say “Well I want to call them that” – but they didn’t keep it. It doesn’t exist. They’re the Washington football team now, and until they decide to change it.

    Yes, you’re free to continue calling them by their old title, in the same way that you’re entitled to believe Q-Anon, and you’re entitled to believe that Trump will serve a second term. But all of the above will make you out to be a bit of a fool.

  70. UKBuccaneer Says:

    It’s also a bad look to accuse others of being snowflakes or ‘soy-boys’ whilst simultaneously getting angry that a football team changed its name.

  71. Cobraboy Says:

    @UK: who is angry at the name change?

    I think it’s pathetic. It’s a show of capitulation to the PC Mob.

    If you’re part of that PC mob from Jolly Ol’, feel free to fly down and protest my lack of empathy for words live and in person. Just beware of the dogs.

    Yes, you guys/gals/xirs are snowflakes and thin-wristed, pasty, estrogen-infused soyboys. But everybody needs to be something, I suppose. At least wear your labels with pride. You earned them!

  72. UKBuccaneer Says:

    Cobraboy – “fly down and protest”? Are you actually trying to pick a fight with a guy on the internet? Are you twelve?

  73. Cobraboy Says:

    @UK: Of course not.

    As a Southern Gentleman, I would never pick a battle of wits with an unarmed xir.
