Tristan Wirfs Talks Fruity Pebbles, Virtual OTAs, Tom Brady’s Cell & More

May 11th, 2021

The best right tackle in football plays for our beloved Buccaneers, and he also is a rather interesting guy in a simple sort of way.

Tristan Wirfs was talking recently on the Cup of Joey podcast where he addressed the early stages of the Bucs’ virtual study in their offseason program.

First was reviewing practice tape, Wirfs said, followed by re-watching the Super Bowl to study technique and finish.

Joe hadn’t considered there is no next-day film study after you win the Super Bowl. Everyone’s partying; nobody’s breaking down the tape. So it makes sense that Bucs coaches finally got to it.

Next up in virtual OTAs was a week of play installation.

As of the podcast recording, Wirfs made it clear he would be staying in Iowa City and working out at the University of Iowa. There, he said, hang clean lifts are cool. They are not done at One Buc Palace, Wirfs said, and he enjoys them and old-school-style pumping iron.

A popular breakfast for Wirfs is yogurt and bacon, he said. (Joe presumes the quantities are enormous.) A day-off breakfast, however, is all about private label Fruity Pebbles called Fruity Dino-bites, Wirfs explained. Apparently they taste better and are cheaper, and come in a giant bag.

Of the recent photo that circulated of Wirfs carrying a fallen tree around on his back and neck (see below) Wirfs explained he was dared to pick up the tree. But Wirfs misunderstood, he said. Those who dared him thought he would just squat and pick up one side rather than the whole fallen tree.

Is Wirfs texting with Tom Brady a lot this offseason? Not a chance. ”I don’t have his number,” Wirfs said, noting that his buddies are always asking him for Brady’s number. Wirfs did say Brady would shoot him Instagram messages during the season.

In conclusion, Wirfs said he loves offensive line coach Joe Gilbert, as well as chewing tobacco.

    I’m a Captain Crunch man myself. I do however use the same Malt o Meal brand he is talking about. For Captain Crunch it is Colossalberry Crunch.

    Chewing tobacco is a blast but it destroyed my adrenal & saliva glands after 25yrs. Good luck w/ that.

  3. SB~LV Says:

    Hope he learns to put better fuel in his machine

    Sounds like something from "The Munsters."

    there needs to be a joe gilbert appreciation post on joe bucs fan! all the time in the podcasts we went on about how his line almost got andrew luck killed. maybe it was luck or maybe it was the players? either way he never got a fair intro when bruce arians brought him in but he is partly responsible for the entire offensive line improving over the last two years and deserves the recognition as his name was stained with that whole andrew luck colts comparison.

  7. Pickgrin Says:

    Love this guy – but picking up heavy, awkward objects because someone “dared” you to is NOT thinking long term. Neither is lifting weights in a manner which (for good reason) is not allowed at your place of employment.

    Somebody needs to get through to this young man that the difference between a 12 year career at a high NFL pay scale and a 6 year career (cut short by a nagging back injury) is way more than $100 MILLION DOLLARS.

    someone tell this kid he has enough money to train in the bahamas for a week…lol…

    BAHAMAS BEACH>iowa forest

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Fruity Pebbles? Really? Why can’t we just call them Alternative Lifestyle Pebbles? When will the hate stop? I’m offended.

  10. Mort Says:

    Shut up Rod. Good grief. It’s a cereal. Don’t bring your stupid political ideas into this.

    Dude probably needs to get with a nutritionist though if he’s eating fruity Dino bits, bacon and chewing tobacco I assume the dude wants to have a long and productive career as opposed to a flash in the pan career.

  11. Buckaroo Boozie Says:

    Same goes for those racist CoCo Pebbles… when will they SJW wokers stop these Fascist Corporations 💩

  12. Cobraboy Says:

    I’m not sure the TB12 diet could maintain Wirf’s immense mass and strength…

  13. Steven007 Says:

    Cobra, avocados are high in fat. He simply needs to eat a lot of them… And/or drink them when appropriate ala TB.

  14. bojim Says:

    Mort, he’s kidding.

  15. Robert Says:

    Mort has a stick up his a$$ (or something)

    Rod was funny!

  16. JimmyJack Says:

    Happy belated Birthing Persons day to Rod Munchs mom……oops i meant birthing person.

  17. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Soon to be the best starting LT if my dream of dropping the Durable One comes true.

  18. Darin Says:

    Hey Morto get a grip. Life’s not so serious. And if he wants a long productive career he will continue eating whatever he wants and lots of it. Check out some former o linemen who got a nutritionist. 100 can come off like that

  19. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Why not Fruit Loops? They must still make those. Frankenberry anybody?

  20. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Good one, Rod.

  21. JGhotier Says:

    Rod Munch’s comment 😂👌🙌

  22. Sport Says:

    That’s weird, he can’t do meaningless max out hang clean lifts…..I wonder why?

    On second thought…no I don’t…unless you are training for the Olympics it doesn’t fit in the training regimen.

    He’s a beast, I want him healthy for a decade. He will learn one way or another its not conducive to long term success.

    In BA I Trust!

  23. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Brady needs to call him and explain diet and lifestyle to Wirfs.

  24. Cainishere Says:

    I respect Wirfs but these stunts he keeps doing can and eventually will injure him. He is strong I get it but jumping out of pools and picking up trees and mountains will catch up to him. I wish he would just chill on all that stuff. It’s bad enough he lifts incredibly heavy weights he doesn’t need to destroy his back.

  25. Cainishere Says:

    Mort woke up and realized someone peed in his cheerios. Ruins a man’s day.

  26. SOEbuc Says:


    What is Tom gonna tell him about only having one sack all year by Khalil Mack? All these guys have said Donny is the strongest on the team for a while. I wanna see Wirfs, Don, and Vita throw up some weight together.

  27. David Says:

    Love him! But….
    1. Nothing beats Cap’n Crunch berries
    2. Lose the chewing tobacco dude. People get jaws removed, lip, tongue, throat cancer from that crap. And… It’s F’ing disgusting

  28. Jeff Says:

    hang cleans are not meaningless…they are a power exercise. That is why he can jump out of a pool and overpower blockers.
