Props To FOX Sports’ Jason McIntyre On Bucs Prediction

May 7th, 2021

Jason McIntyre of FOX Sports.

Joe has to give a man props for having solid intel and strong sources.

So it is with Joe’s good friend Jason McIntyre of FOX Sports. The TV and radio personality, often seen on FS1 as a substitute teacher of sorts for show hosts on siesta, McIntyre popped on Colin Cowherd’s show “The Herd” seen weekdays on FS1 for his regular segment called “Tomorrow’s Headlines… Today.”

McIntyre discusses the top sports stories of the near future. And on his April 16 appearance,, McIntyre noted he had heard the Bucs were heavily researching Florida quarterback Kyle Trask.

For McIntyre, the rumor appeared to make all sorts of sense and he ran with it, as you can see in the FS1 video below.

McIntyre noted that Trask has all the qualities Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians likes in a quarterback: Accurate, strong arm, big dude that can hang in the pocket.

Nice job Jason!

    Okay we drafted Trask and he has a golden opportunity. I hope he learns a lot from the goat and feel great for him and his mom. Can we please go back to talking about the players that are actually going to play? The defending super bowl champs led by the greatest QB of all time… I promise I won’t call him Kyle Trash anymore. Oh and next time I see J-mac’s journal I will pay more attention.

  2. Joe Says:


    You might have to suck it up for a few weeks. The players that play aren’t doing anything. The guys who may not play are doing a lot (getting drafted, doing interviews, attending minicamp in a week).

    Besides, when Joe does write about players who do play (like Antonio Brown) readers chew Joe’s arse out about it.

    So Joe has decided he will continue to do what he has always done: Bucs players who make news will be written about. If people don’t like that, they can turn to lesser sites that have about half the content and stories Joe has. 🤷‍♂️

    Besides, there is no more popular player than the backup quarterback (not named “Blaine Gabbert”). Throw in the fact Trask is a Gator, and well, readers are interested in that. You may not be but trust Joe, he sees what is and isn’t getting eyeballs.

    Joe is not a newspaper. He believes in writing about subjects fans care about.

    Joe throwin shade left and right. LOL.

  4. Iamabuc Says:

    No Joe is telling it like it is….the kid is a Gator, therefore; homeboy. It’s news and a lot of people in the state of Florida got their eyes on that move as insignificant as you may see it. Sorry pal.

  5. TampaTown Says:

    Wow finally! Great job Joe now drop the mic

  6. westernbuc Says:

    A guy nails his prediction and says Arians loves a QB and oh look we drafted him to learn behind the goat. Maybe he ends up being something, maybe not. Either way, Joe would be doing a disservice to his readers if he didn’t cover him just because, god willing, he isn’t going to play this year. If you guys want daily updates on starters in early May, get an Instagram account. But I will warn you, it’s boring

  7. Medicated Pete Says:

    My eyeballs will be staring DAGGERS thru Jason Licht for the next 3yrs while this 2nd Rd pick sits on the bench. If we need DB depth/help later this season, I’m going to barricade myself inside a liquor store

  8. Jason Barker Says:

    Medicated Pete,

    You might be calling Licht a brilliant GM if Father Time comes crashing in on TB12 like it did Manning and Brees. Manning’s last hurrah was plagued with noodle-armed balls. It may not be this season (fingers crossed), but in the next few seasons it’ll happen midseason. It’ll hit the team like a ton of bricks and you’ll be glad that we had a plan in place.

  9. Buczilla Says:

    I’m cool with the Trask pick, but most of what I have seen and read on this kid is all over the place. For example, I’ve heard that he has got a noodle for and arm, a gun for an arm, or just an average arm. If he’s good enough for Arians, he’s good enough for me. No way we take this dude without his blessing.

  10. DingleBerry Says:

    Stop saying he has a strong arm when that flat out isn’t true. One need only to watch Kyle Trask throw the ball on film with very poor velocity.

    This guy is not going to be able to fit the football into a football sized window 20 yards down field in the NFL.

    Trevor Sikkema is one of the biggest Gators fans in the world and is a UF alum who makes his living evaluating talent for the draft network and even he doesn’t understand the selection of Gator great Kyle Trask or taking a QB thats going to sit for 2-3 years when we are trying to win another Super Bowl now.

  11. AKicknTheBucNuts Says:


    Trask has landed in the Ideal situation!!!

    Where’s the coverage on this breaking news?

    There are no articles about his ideal situation with the Bucs.

    If only someone would write about the ideal situation Trask is in with the Bucs.

  12. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Not every QB is Patrick Mahomes who can immediately get of the bench and start the first season. Many successful QBs had to sit a year or two and slowly learn the system and the speed of the NFL before playing. I personally like the mentality to groom a QB and have him sit as a backup before starting. Too often teams destroy the confidence of a young QB by throwing him to the wolves.

  13. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Still don’t like the Trask pick for the following reasons-

    Assuming Trask sits for a year or 2 and learns under Brady, by the time he does play significantly the team may have up to 50% turnover of players or more- very likely many FA players will leave when Brady retires- and the next 2 drafts will likely be the end of the rounds.
    I am sure Trask will have some great games, but he will have some poor decision, turnover games as well when he first gets playing time- ok, that’s expected.
    Another player could’ve been chosen this year with the 2nd pick that contributes now while the team is great.
    Trask may have a great future, but the future is now because the Bucs are not rebuilding…

  14. Cobraboy Says:

    @Alabama: didn’t Mahomes sit for a year?

  15. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    wasted pick

  16. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Joe, do a story on Trask’s favorite color. I’ll read it. As long as the story is related to buccaneers or buccaneer football, I’ll read it. Keep it up Joe. Damn the critics.

  17. Bucanero Says:

    Ok Joe, it is Traskmania season, I hope the Glazers sell a lot of jerseys they deserve it after opening their checkbooks to keep the band together. Glad you’re getting clicks. Can’t wait till real football season

  18. Jaymiss Pick6 Again Says:

    About Trask – which is it…strong arm or not? My guess is strong enough. But what’s the truth?

  19. Hodad Says:

    Tough crowd Joe, keep up the good work.

  20. SufferingSince76 Says:

    A lot of the posters are making a good case for skipping the comment section. I’ve never heard such crying and whining before. If you guys were half as good at player evaluation as you think you are, you would be working for an NFL team.

  21. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Joe didn’t claim Trask had a “big” arm….Mcintyre did… have others.
    Others have said it wasn’t a strong arm…I guess we’ll have to see.

    I don’t have any problems with multiple articles on Buc players….especially the ones without monikers yet.

  22. Baby Grace Says:


    You keep saying just watch the “film.” I have watched his “film” in games as well as his pro day. He doesn’t have a rocket for an arm, but it is better then many and plenty strong enough to make all the throws. Also has good touch and accuracy. The biggest myth of all is that he is a bad athlete. He is not a great athlete like some QBs today, but he is not a slug like some say. Watch his pro day throwing dimes off misdirection and roll outs.

    Will he be a great pick and our QB for the future? Who knows for sure? Nobody! All I’m saying is he has a much better tool box then some are saying especially you. If you say you watch “film” to make your analysis of both Trask and Tryon then I would suggest you get some glasses or see a Shrink!

  23. Pigsueybucsfan Says:

    Baby Grace AMEN . GO BUCS!

  24. Buccos Says:

    Trask led the NCAA in touchdown passes. This is a pretty good resume builder. I don’t know of anything that would be better for a kid coming out of college. That is pretty much the number one stat. All we can hope for is that trend continues in the pros. I’m sure that a guy with his size should have enough arm strength with the right mechanics and Bruce Arians is not a bad guy to be starting his career with as his coach. Arians and Licht seem to know what they are doing to me.

  25. Buczilla Says:

    Great point Buccos. Leading the NCAA in touchdowns while playing in the “big boy” league of college football is no joke. Arm strength reports on this dude are all over the place, but everything that I have seen/read on him has mentioned that he has written the very least, above average accuracy. Arm strength, 40 time, etc. means nothing if you can’t consistently hit your targets. (Waves hello to Jameis).

  26. Ne+ bucs fan Says:

    I also have heard different things about his arm strength scouting report was accurate passer not the strongest arm but I guess we’ll see
