“That’s The Guy I Aspire To Be Like”

June 2nd, 2021

Ironic words from Scotty Miller.

The Bucs’ speedy deep threat is steaming with confidence after breaking through last season as a big-time player and arguably the favorite deep target of the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL.

That kind of success and a Super Bowl ring is enough to get the attention of former Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib, host of the Catchin’ Fades podcast.

Miller explained to Talib that studies and yearns to be the next … wait for it … DeSean Jackson, the former Buccaneer receiver yet to be indicted for thieving countless millions of Team Glazer loot.

“That’s the guy I aspire to be like,” Miller said of Jackson. “I think I can do similar things that he can. So I love watching his film and trying to learn different things that he does. Because he’s a smaller guy that plays big and can run by people.”

Yes, Joe realizes Jackson is one the great receivers in NFL history. Only 40 men have more receiving yards, and Jackson career is continuing with the Rams.

One irony of Miller’s comment is that the draft pick the Bucs got for unloading Jackson to the Eagles is the one they used to draft Miller in 2019. And then there’s the fact that Jackson was a cancerous presence on a Bucs roster — and a coaching staff — that wasn’t strong enough to handle him.

Of course, Miller is Jackson without the ego and attitude, even if he told Aqib Talib that he’s likely faster than D.K. Metcalf and Tyreek Hill.

Millers said he ran a 10.5-second 100-meter dash in high school when he was just 140 pounds. Miller said he’s sure he can run at least 10 seconds flat now and would love to see anyone in the NFL challenge him to a race.

    He has respect for someone who has excelled, DeSean Jackson. That is an admirable trait to have. Let’s just consider that in this era of tearing people down.

    Look I love scooter but 10 seconds flat? Dude, that’s complete utter B.S. I know a lot of jersey wearing, hero worshipping adults will believe literally anything that comes out of an athletes mouth but 10 seconds flat is qualifying for the god damn Olympics, and if you’re 10 now then there’s an ok chance he’d have ability to shave .015 off to have a chance to compete for a medal which is utterly laughable. Additionally – Tyreek Hill may be a terrible human, but I really wish people would stop saying they’re faster than him. They are not. No one in the NFL is until he gets old. 40 yard dash means Jack crap in the 100 for one, and he is the only human in the NFL that has come close to Olympic qualifying speed running in the 10.1’s in HS, which btw is much MUCH faster than 10.5 in a foot race

    Gofortheface. I just want to see Scotty race with Cheetah, so one way or the other it is settled. lol, Just do not blow out your hammy Scotty. GO BUCS!!!!!

  7. BillyBucoff Says:

    Last I checked John Ross is faster than both of them.
    He can’t even latch onto a team so who cares?

    Speed is desirable but doesn’t mean $hit if you cant catch.
    Scotty has straight line speed yes, but Jackson he will never be, because he IS NOT a good route runner.

    Now Darden on the other hand can do it all.
    Its why we moved up to draft him, higher than Miller went BTW.

    Its why Miller doesn’t return punts.
    Its why Miller doesn’t return kick offs.

    Usually 3rd year receivers who are good go off in year 3.
    I’m expecting to see the opposite with Miller.
    Way too many better players on this team.

  8. Bucsfanman Says:

    I must’ve missed something because I don’t see where Scooter said anything about politics.

    True. Miller is not a complete WR. However, he does have speed and he CAN catch. As to Darden, we’ll have to see.

  9. Eddie Marz Says:

    Love Scotty Miller. Wants to be the best he can be. Bring it! GO BUCS!

    Can’t fault a guy for dreaming!!!

  12. Hodad Says:

    So what’s his 40 time as of today?

  13. sauron's eye Says:

    Best #4 WR in the league! We are loaded!

  14. Youngbucs Says:

    Jackson knew the previous QB was all talk. He let it be known I’m not justifying some of his actions meetings and such. He was trying to force a trade he wanted out can’t blame him.

  15. Hope springs eternal Says:

    Poor Scotty. Everybody knows white boys can’t run or dance. Just joking by the way. The kid can outrun a db that doesn’t take him seriously. But so far he is a one trick pony. Should be working hard on running routes to up his game.

  16. Mitch Says:

    @Youngbucs yes you can blame him. Just because a situation isn’t what you wanted or thought it should be doesn’t give you license to be malicious and try to destroy other peoples career.

    Desean is a bad dude, and one day after he retires Joe will reveal what he did behind closed doors at One Buc.

  17. Louis J Glasser Says:

    I would love to see a true fastest competition for all claiming to be faster than…I remember watching the fastest competitions in years past, and it’s a great series of races

  18. Buczilla Says:

    How about a race between Scotty and Devin White?

  19. Mike Says:

    Scotty doesn’t have to be faster than any other WR. He just needs to be faster than any other DB.

  20. sasquatch Says:

    This isn’t news. When we drafted him, looking at the video of his college games, many of us saw DeSean Jackson… unless you only see race – some were saying he was the next Adam Humphries. Not at all. He’s always been a DeSean Jackson style player.

  21. Scooter Says:

    To Bucsfanman: look in the mirror. u always get ur anti-American shots in. I’m guessing ur on a half hour lunch break fighting with Hamas.

  22. Oneilbuc Says:

    Youngbucs how many yards did Jackson get in Phill the year he left? Lol lol 😆🤣😂

  23. webster Says:

    Lebron pea brain? How many production companies does he have? How many sports agent companies does he have? How many shows/movies has he the executive producer? How many schools has he built? The man who has warren buffet on speed dial is a pea brain?. No that would be you with your alternative facts but thats how it is. Social justice, social justice. Whether you like it or not, it is needed.

    Agree with you 💯 % Webster 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
