Five Snaps & A Trip To The Doctor

October 31st, 2021

Joe’s not a medical professional, but Joe is not really sure why Rob Gronkowski even suited up to play today.

The Bucs have a bye next week and 32-year-old Gronk was coming off busted ribs and limited practice time.

It felt like it was rushing a guy with a history of falling apart physically for no good reason — against a physical Saints team on fake turf. And yeah, Joe referenced all this before the game.

Gronk was on the field today for five snaps before exiting the game with back spasms. Again, Joe is not doctor, but it sort of makes sense that a guy favoring his ribs for weeks might tweak his back if he wasn’t 100 percent.

Joe just hopes/prays Gronk is fine and this is all a big nothing. Joe would hate to think of a little Halloween excess being felt in December,

    Totally agree Joe and I have a bad feeling he might be done done though? Oh and where was the other Joe that’s plays on defense ? Crappy loss, but I think that motivates Tom and the Boys.. LFG !!! Go Bucs

    omg jameis is now doing a smokey “crutches in the air” locker room dance, celebrating the victory like the saints won the super bowl…

    gotta bust into these fools between the white lines when they come to ray jay…

    BA should say on the podium:

    “come see us in our back yard…soon…real soon”

  4. adam from ny Says:

    why do these saints act the fool after the recent victories over the bucs…

    and film it to show to the entire world…

    they don’t do this after every win…just vs. the bucs…


    or tell me i’m wrong

    We should stop dreaming that Gronk will be back playing after bye week. We just have to deal to the idea that he is injured for the whole season and the bucs will just have to win or lose without him.

    They were celebrating the fact that their donation to the Ref union paid off!

    “He was begging to go in so we let him in.”- Arians

    What the hell is that??? Sit this guy till he is able to play football and I now don’t know when that will be.

  9. Buc and roll Says:

    Gronk will always be there

    in the end

    in the playoffs

    when we need him

    Gronk put himself at risk for getting back in the game. His loyalty to the team is commendable. He is more of
    An asset to the team
    When he is fully recovered. 🏈
    Thank goodness he didn’t reinjure
    Ribs thst weren’t fully healed.
    Please pace yourself in your recovery.
    You’re in our prayers. You are missed, but would be greatly missed if you were injured & unable to finish the season. .
    Be kind to your body. You have a CHOICE.

    Hey Gronk wanted to play to beat the saints. They probably would have if he and Brown were playing. We’ll see them again at home and whip their as-. GO BUCS!

  12. Daisy Says:

    Gayle, you said it all

  13. bojim Says:

    I think about 100 of us said Gronk shouldn’t play.

  14. Karen Says:

    I agree with Captain Dan AND Gayle. I thought the officiating was all over the place. Of course, so was the defense. Get some much-needed and deserved rest, guys. We’ll be waiting to cheer you on the other side of the bye week!

  15. Philanthropist Says:

    bucs is not that good. The team is very undisciplined from the coaches to the goat himself who i admire so much from Boston to Tampa. The goat was greedy and in a rush to be home with his kids. All he had to do give the ball to four-letter and got a field goal

  16. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    Captain Dan – Thank you for saying what I’ve been saying ALL season … The refs are one sided and call bull crap penalties against the Bucs but I watch the AINTS OLINE hold our Dline almost every play. And holding Mike Evans on a lot of plays
