“There’s Friggin’ First-Rounders All Up And Down The Roster”

October 17th, 2021

The Jason Licht Effect?

It sounds like Richard Sherman is a little humbled by his new suroundings.

Speaking after the Bucs’ Thursday night win on the podcast that bears his name, Sherman was asked about the Bucs’ stunning depth.

He said fans can see it with their own eyes, and then he started raving.

“There’s friggin’ first rounders all up and down the roster,” Sherman said. “There’s former Pro Bowlers, All-Pros up and down the roster. There’s All-Decade team all up and down the roster. Even the guys who aren’t any of those things are really talented players.

“Offensive line is incredibly sound. Ryan Jensen played a fantastic game the other night. Tristan Wirfs and Donnie [Smith] at the left tackle, they’re are playing fantastic. Ali [Marpet]. You know the whole line is playing really well and that was a really talented front [in Philadelphia]. They aren’t easily handled. They did a great job of giving Tom time. I don’t think he was hit in the game, outside of that one play on that interception when they got into a shoving match. I think that went viral.”

Sherman should be impressed. Joe has written that if somehow the Bucs win another Super Bowl this season, Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht might have a fast-track to the Pro Football Hall of Fame for building the deepest NFL team in the history of the salary cap era — and perhaps the Super Bowl era.

Joe just hopes Sherman remains happy and eager when the Bucs get healthy in the secondary, which should relegate him to the bench.

    He might be fine on the bench. Collecting a check for providing leadership

    I like Sherm also for his experience and possibly being a presence in the locker room but it sure does look like he is long in the tooth on the field.

    Side bar – hoping the Jags lose 27 in a row to eclipse the Bucs 26 in a row record.

  4. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Urban Liar is a terrible coach

  5. Dewey Selmon Says:

    The record remains intact. Owen26

  6. Buczilla Says:

    Licht has made some downright horrible picks, but some amazing ones too. His free agency/trading record is outstanding lately as well. It’s great to see and I’m glad he’s on our side. 😜

  7. Christopher Schiefen Says:

    Wow, Licht in the HOF, I like that. Seeing the Cardinals, Rams, Chargers, and Chiefs falter bodes well for us too this year.

  8. CalBucsFan Says:

    Come on Joe! Once Sherman gets in game shape, he’s a starter and Bucs WILL go to the SB!

  9. Omiyari Says:

    In no way would Sherman be relegated to the bench when then secondary gets healthy again. He is outright better than all of them.

    Overall, I am a Licht fan but 2 Super Bowl wins for a GM is not an automatic enshrinement into the NFL HOF.

    Plus he will always be remembered for the 2nd round kicker that could not make it through two seasons.

  11. August 1976 Buc Says:

    LOl Hey Geno, yes he picked Roberto lol
    but J Licht will always be the GM that made the greatest free agent signing in history of North American Sports and maybe even globally sports wise.

    It is good to get an honest opinion from longtime outsider like Sherman. Outsider no more, and very glad he is on the Bucs, Sherman is going to make a long time impact on the young secondary of the Bucs. It is good to have a Summa Cum Laude from Stanford on the Bucs roster.

    GO BUCS!!!!!
