Ryan Jensen Discusses Going “To The Moon”

August 6th, 2021

Goal in 2021 is to reach championship level quicker.

We live in an age of celebrity astronauts. Where filthy rich guys like Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos decide to play John Glenn and get in a glorified Big Storm Brewing beer can and blast off.

Bucs center Ryan Jensen is sort of like that. He too has already moon-gazed but didn’t have to crawl into a beer can. He only had to wrestle nose tackles.

The Bucs’ center spoke with the local pen and mic club yesterday and briefly touched on the magical championship run of the Bucs and how they got hot at the perfect time.

It was as if Jensen and the Bucs were lifted into outer space, he said.

“Everything just kind of clicked,” Jensen said. “Not having a traditional training camp, not having the traditional OTA, preseason games, stuff like that and having a new quarterback, I think everything just started to click for us.

“As you can see, when it started to click, we went to the moon, and I think that’s just something with any offense every year. Eventually, you have to get that jell in and you have to start clicking.

“For us last year, we clicked at the right time and for us this year, we want to consistently play that way.”

Well, everything is certainly pointing up in just about every imaginable way. The team is excellent with sick depth at several positions.

Oh yeah, and championship experience.

Last night on Twitter, prickly Pete Prisco of CBS Sports was asked of all the teams he has seen thus far, which ones stick out.

Prisco said there is one.

    Ryan Jensen has really stepped up his game. After the first few years with the Bucs and the knucklehead penalties he would get for being overly aggressive. It is good to be aggressive, very good to be that, but not if you are getting stupid penalties because of it. After the Chicago mess of a game last year, Ryan really cleaned up his play. He is still very aggressive, which any fan wants the players to be, but without the dumb penalties. He is one of the best centers in the NFL. When you watch the highlights of Jensen that Brian Baldinger put out last year, you see and awesome player. Just ask the Saints Ancilone, he was pissed off at Ryan, becuase Ryan was blocking him into the third row of the stands lol. Other times Ryan is finishing a block 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. Again Ryan is one of the best centers in the NFL. Ryan “Big Nasty” Jensen

    Those dumb low earth orbits aren’t even really space. I love the idea of going to space, I love the idea that it can be tourism and that all starts with billionaires doing it first, then over the next 20-years, you’re at the point where anyone can do it. But SPACE… not low orbit. One of the people on the Bezos flight, the old lady, said she was pretty disappointed as they didn’t really get that high and the view wasn’t even that impressive — and then it’s over in what, 7 minutes? Pretty lame. Keep pushing those rockets higher and get the floating time up to around 15 minutes.

    Anytime someone talks about space tourism I think of that show Avenue 5.

    I anticipated something like this. If they go too high, they would bounce off of the dome.

    Took me sleeping on it to figure out who he reminded me of. Love Jackie Gleason, but with those bright orange pork chop sideburns, I’ve got to go with Fat Bastard from Austin Powers.

    I hope he doesn’t kick my arse.
