If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em

May 6th, 2021

New Bucs S/LB Raven Greene.

In a real devious, devilish way, Joe is snickering like some wack job you see wandering around alone in a Walmart parking lot.

Why is Joe doing this? Well, reading about all the drama in Green Bay between the Packers and drama queen Aaron Rodgers, who is threatening to retire if the Packers don’t trade him, Joe gets a nasty sense of satisfaction. If Rodgers follows through with his threat, it would be the Bucs who chased him from the game!

(Or, if Rodgers retires, the road back to the Super Bowl just got one step easier.)

Also, Joe is snickering that one of Rodgers’ teammates is now an ex-teammate and a new Bucs defender. Yesterday, the Bucs signed safety/linebacker Raven Greene.

Former Packers beat guy and current The Athletic NFL columnist Bob McGinn for years if not decades was one of the top X’s and O’s writers in the NFL. So when he sees a good player, it’s worth taking his analysis to the bank. And McGinn yesterday wrote Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht made a sneaky good move by signing Melrose Larry Greene.

Moe Greene is indeed out of the lineup a lot. Per Pro-Football-Reference.com, Greene has played in only 20 games the past three years. Less than half-a-season per year.

It’s intriguing that Greene was regarded as a nice defender before being derailed by injuries.

You have to wonder how many other Packers will follow Greene out of town with Rodgers bellyaching that he is going to throw in the towel?

But hey, if you can’t beat the Bucs in the playoffs, may as well hop on the Super Bowl bandwagon.

    “Greene has played in only 20 games the past three years.”

    Damn, to put that in perspective, Vita Vea has played in 34 games in that timespan. He’s missed another 12 games on top of that. That’s a lot of missed games.

    Even on the bench this guy may prove valuable to us by providing intel should we meet up with the packers again this year.

    Not sure where linebacker came from ? The guy is 5-11 197 lbs. i will call him a safety
    Will he take adams 4th safety spot?
    He can play special teams too
    Sounds like he needs the joey galloway treatment. Gonna be tough if you have to show how tough you are on special teams

    Man…those last 2-3 special team spots are gonna be a battle to the death.

    It took awhile, but slimy Sean Payton signed Jameis to pump Bucs info

    I never realized Rodgers was a prima donna. Guess I wasn’t paying attention.

  10. bucnole Says:

    Rodgers is more like a crybaby – he soooo sensitive
    Hope he goes to the AFC so he can play KC more often

    This is what stupid people believe. We are going to sign a backup 3rd year safety to get intel on a team we beat twice last year. Even if the intel thing was legit… teams don’t sign defenders for intel. Any decent offensive coordinator can tell you EXACTLY what a defense was doing on every play.
