Kyle Trask Is Done For The Season, Unless…

January 5th, 2022

“Don’t worry Kyle, you will get to play someday.”

Unless the unthinkable happens, Kyle Trask will finish his rookie season not taking one snap of football in the regular season.

That’s the word from Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians.

Today Arians was asked about resting players, provided the Bucs have a big enough lead Sunday. Arians laughed and said it is always his goal to empty the bench due to a big lead, not just this Sunday in the regular season finale.

Arians also was asked if he hoped to maybe get Trask in for a few snaps. The Bucs’ second-round draft pick has been inactive on gamedays all season.

No, Arians said, the Bucs don’t plan to activate Trask. Why? Arians explained activating Trask would eat up a roster spot for a special teams player. Clearly, Arians has no desire for Trask to be the No. 2 quarterback behind Tom Brady, and leave No. 2 quarterback Blaine Gabbert inactive.

So barring a horrible set of circumstances where both Brady and fan-favorite backup Gabbert get hurt, the next time Trask will be seen in public throwing a football will be in a preseason game in August.

(The Bucs no longer grant access to the general public for training camp practices. Since they won the Super Bowl, Joe guesses the organization has glossed itself too good and above being seen in the summer by the unwashed and those who don’t have the disposable income to buy season tickets. Yeah, Joe is still bothered by that and thinks that’s a direct slap in the face to long-time fans who suffered through the Lost Decade.)

  1. Mike Johnson Says:

    Trask. He still a Buc? Please find Brady’s replacement next season. Remember, Brady is only one big hit away. Trask is not the answer. Reminds me of Winstons backup..whats his name?

  2. Beeej Says:

    Is Ryan Griffin still with the organization?

  3. tbbucs3 Says:

    Wasted pick

  4. PassingThru Says:

    As I said on draft night, taking Trask instead of a CB was a major mistake. Lots of pending free agents at the end of the season, an older franchise QB, shallowness at CB, and an older guy like Suh means that you should try winning now rather than later.

    Trask looked like a late fourth-rounder prior to the draft and looked like a late fourth-rounder during camp. Unless Licht really believed Trask has the makings of a franchise QB after Brady, the pick never made sense.

  5. Mike Johnson Says:

    I was thinking of Mike Glennon.

  6. DBS Says:

    The only thing he needed to be doing this year was learning from Brady. The GOAT. He did not need to be on the field.

  7. Mike Johnson Says:

    Even stevie wonder can see trask is not Brady’s replacement.

  8. Swampbuc Says:

    Mike Glennon…………….


    Another Mark Dumbanik dandy. He sucked — and then got worse! Although he has a hot hot wife and double digit millions. For barely lifting a finger during his career. He can still get negative net passing yards in a game and then go out with a hangnail.

    Must be great to be Glennon.

  9. Biff Barker Says:

    Joe, the Glazers are only in it to line their pockets. They don’t care about the fans or the taxpayers who pay for their stadium.

    I wish we had some likeable owners.

  10. PassingThru Says:

    I wish I could backup Brady. I’d get paid a million or two, never play a down, and have the best seat in the house.

  11. Biff Barker Says:

    Joe, BTW it’s likely TB12 will hang it up after an early playoff loss. Trask will get his turn soon enough.

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    Passing Thru Licht really believed Trask has the makings of a franchise QB(or maybe more accurately Bruce and/or Byron thought so).

    Why do you think they drafted him?

  13. Go Bucs! Says:

    I hated this pick, we could have gotten depth instead of a luxury pick but then again I was all in with AB so I better pay attention and start saving for my lonely retirement

  14. adam from ny Says:

    umm…he never got started…

    and understandably so…

    imagine being a back up behind the michael jordan of football…

    you will sit, sit, and sit some more…

    hopefully he is being a sponge, and tom is hitting him with a super soaker full of knowledge

  15. PassingThru Says:


    That’s my conclusion, that Licht misjudged Trask as a franchise QB. And more importantly, the team had a weak CB position group and many free agents set to leave at the end of this season along with relatively small salary cap space. Even if Licht over-estimated the strength of the CBs, there were other roster spots he needed to fill due to free agency. It made no sense in terms of roster building, and it made no sense in a shorter term, strategic “win now” sense.

    Trask as a franchise QB? That’s a lotto ticket.

  16. BBro Says:

    Learn learn learn that was the plan

  17. SlyPirate Says:


    It used to be SOP to sit rookie QBs for 2-3 seasons before hitting the field.

    Rodgers and Brady are proof of this process.

    Steve Young failed miserably after being thrust into Tampa’s lineup, but later became a HOF sitting behind Montana for four years!

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This is no surprise……and we are fortunate it’s the case.

  19. Oneilbuc Says:

    Trask will have a chance to be the bucs quarterback for the future. I heard from the pewter report that they have been getting some good reports about Trask in practice. To me it’s a reason why BL said that he should be a starter on a team. We all know how BA feel about his starting quarterbacks looking over there shoulders and Brady know very well how the NFL business goes when it comes to age. And we know Brady is not practicing every day so maybe Trask is taking some reps sometimes times with the ones. I’m not saying that’s was a garontean but it could be. Trask had 43 touchdowns and only 8 picks and lead the NCAA in every quarterback stat in 2020. And don’t tell me that was because of Pitts because every quarterback that was drafted before him had weapons also. And Trask played in the SEC and go look how he played against ALABAMA in 2020 !! So what make some of yall believe it was a wasted pick or he can’t be the next quarterback 🤔 ?? No one has any proof but I get it if the media doesn’t blow you up than that means you ain’t good . And let’s also remember that Gabbert is trash and the only reason why he’s the number 2 is because he’s BA friend that’s a favor what BA is doing for Gabbert because he tried to go somewhere else but no other team wanted him that’s why he’s here and that’s a fact!!!

  20. PassingThru Says:

    Steve Young was an incredible collegian, had he gone to a major power instead of BYU he would have been a Heisman winner.

    I saw Steve Young during LA Express football camp. He was the real deal, an NFL starter going for some immediate payout in an expansion league. I thought Tampa Bay did a poor job developing him and gave up way too early.

    I admit I haven’t seen as much of Kyle Trask, but what I have seen hasn’t impressed me as a franchise-grade QB.

  21. DBS Says:

    It’s to bad what anybody thinks. He is a Buccaneer. Learning under Tom Brady. So if the owners and staff want it that way guess what?

  22. firethecannons Says:

    Honestly this draft pick and the draft pick of Roberto Aguayo are Jason Licht’s worst. No reason at all that is apparent for this pick. Possibly the Glazers demanded it. Anyway we could of used more corners in the second round–I know Paulson Adebo was available. Really ridiculous–so many other better picks.

  23. BT-Tampa Says:

    Who are the fools who say it is a wasted pick, without seeing him on the field? Didn’t Rodgers have to sit behind Favre for a season or two? How did that work out?

  24. tbbucs3 Says:

    Yeah because “learning under Tom Brady” is always a recipe for success.

    It seems to have worked out great for career backups like Jarred Stidham, Jacoby Brissett, Matt Cassel, and Brian Hoyer.

    Learning under Brady doesnt mean much if you cant do Brady things…..

  25. Buczilla Says:

    Good. Hopefully we won’t see Trask suit up in the regular season next year either. I have nothing against the kid and he seems like a good prospect, but I`m hoping that Brady plays next year and beyond.

    I’m not surprised by ownership. They aren’t in the same category of sleazebag that Culverhouse was prior to them, but they ain’t no angels either. I distinctly remember them extorting the taxpayers to get their sweetheart deal with our stadium and bet your booty that they’ll do it again in the near future. I hear a lot of nonsense that they do some good things in the community, blah, blah, blah. They damn well should! This community, along with TV revenue, etc. have made them multi billionaires. They’ve spent money on the team and have made a lot of good decisions lately though, so ultimately, that’s what I care about. After all, life ain’t fair, but karma is the great equalizer and everyone will pay their due in this life, or the next.

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    I wasn’t for the Trask pick, didn’t like it at all, absolutely would have grabbed a corner or another LB or offensive line depth — but anyone saying Trask is a bust, just shutup. You have no idea what he is at this point.

  27. tbbucs3 Says:


    For every 1 Aaron Rodgers theres a hundred Brock Osweiler’s…

  28. Sparky Says:

    Anyone here who claims to know anything about Kyle Trask as an NFL player is full of BS. He played a handful of snaps in the pre-season, there is not enough info available.

  29. DBS Says:

    tbbucs3 there is only 1 reason you are against this and we all know what it is. Has been since they let your boy go.

  30. DG060 Says:

    Licht and Ariens completely screwed up that pick. EVERYBODY knows it was a disaster pick except for the 2 guys that actually make the decisions.
    How is that possible? They just pissed away a perfectly good 2nd round pick.

  31. Teacherman777 Says:

    CB, OLB, NT, DT, DE (3-4 DE)

    We got cute with Trask.

    We should have built legendary depth behind Suh and JPP and Vea and Gholston.

    We needed another CB to be#4 (not Cockrell (who I want as our #6 CB eventually)

    We could have used an another OLB to develop with Tryon-Shoyinka.

    Or the biggest NT in the draft to backup Vea.

  32. PassingThru Says:

    Anyone who thought Trask was the answer needs to have his eyes checked (look at Trask’s poor mechanics) and have a better understanding of where the team is heading due to age and free agency.

  33. tbbucs3 Says:


    Actually my reasoning is weak arm strength. (watch the film), a very bad training camp and meh leadership qualities.

  34. Jerry Says:

    The Bucs went all in in Free Agency for this year’s run. That’s why they re-signed everyone and kept all 22 starters. The draft was supposed to be for the future. No one thought the defense would play subpar all year. No one thought the team would be decimated by injuries. Most of these draft picks were never supposed to see the field this year.

    Perhaps it wasn’t the best strategy.

  35. Red86 Says:

    Brady sat behind Drew.
    Rodger behind Farve.
    Mahome behind Smith.

    It’s not always good to throw rookies out into the fire early. It’s a big reason we were in such a playoff drought. No role model in the QB room for Freeman and Winston. Wonder would they be different people and player had they had a veteran to start while they sit a year or two? Team starting rookies at qb often struggles with few exceptions.

  36. DBS Says:

    You Know NOTHING about him or his qualities. GTFOH.

  37. Rod Munch Says:

    I will agree I thought his arm strength was very suspect coming out of college, but in preseason he made some NFL throws. In the preseason he also still was doing some of those soft college touch passes that will be INTs in the NFL, but it seemed like they’re trying to coach that out of him, and as he threw the ball harder, his accuracy got worse. But I think that can be fixed, as long as he shows he does in fact have an NFL arm, and his isn’t great but is at least acceptable, with reps and time he can get his accuracy back I believe.

    In any case he was very much a project pick. If we went QB, I preferred Mills, which looks like the right pick right now, but I didn’t want any of them. The idea that we just signed a vet, that people said was washed up, and rode him to a SB, that should give you an idea of how to handle things in the future. Stop with the lottery tickets, just get proven guys other teams have given up on, and put a very good team around them. Wasting a 2nd rounder on a QB that might get some snaps in 2024, it’s just stupid. But that doesn’t mean he’s a bust, we don’t know that yet.

  38. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    i don’t like BA plans, in general. Cause he dont have a clear one. Trask is going to be on his own, hopefully he can grab/steel from TB12. he got NOT good chances right now.
    Tom is the GOAT, un-replaceable, period. He is very competitive, dont expect to give much.
    QB #2 is taken by BA terrible choice Gabbert; but as long as BA is here, he and like 90% of coaching staff are protected under BA umbrella.
    So for Trask to have a chance, multiple variables have to work on his advantage.
    Right now he got NONE.
    Hang in there, opportunity is coming…..

  39. Defense Rules Says:

    There aren’t that many QBs in the NFL who are true FRANCHISE QBs. Relatively few can truly carry a team like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers & Patrick Mahomes can. Most effective QBs learn to ‘play within the system’ kinda like Mac Jones has up in New England. Nothing exciting, but the Patriots have managed to meander to a 10-6 record this season with a rookie QB at the wheel.

    Kyle Trask MAY end up being in a similar mold when his time comes, depending on how the Bucs develop as a TEAM going forward. There are many ways to build a winning team. I suspect that Brian Billick & his 2001 Super Bowl champion Ravens would agree … as would Trent Dilfer.

  40. PassingThru Says:

    Poor mechanics + weakish arm = long-term prospect

    That doesn’t mean QB bust, it means QB that should be selected in a later round. To be fair, I like Trask’s intangibles. But with that package, he’s a mid-round pick.

    In terms of the team’s immediate needs, you have a HOF QB with a presumed shelf-life of two seasons, a large number of holes to fill with pending free agents, an aging DT, and limited salary cap money. There’s no mystery, that second round pick should have either shored up a weakness like CB, or investe in a position where you anticipate free agent bleed.

  41. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Passing thru

    Ryan Griffin has had an awesome career/ life… and nary a bruise or scratch!

  42. Listnfrmafar Says:

    DR, you forgot Josh Allen the best example. Here’s a good one, Brady leaves, BA retires and BL gets a job at Clearwater Beach Community College as a backup QB coach. How’s Trask feeling then? Hey, Oneilbucyall, I answered your post on the Lovie thread.

  43. PassingThru Says:

    Mac Jones was very refined in college. I thought Mac Jones was easily the most NFL-ready QB out of the draft last season. He didn’t have as high of a ceiling as the other first-round QBs, but he had the highest floor of all. And that floor was NFL starter.

    Trask wasn’t close. I liked his intangibles, he was a gutsy competitor in college. I didn’t like his mechanics, and some of that affected his arm strength and accuracy. Some QBs can clean up their mechanics and improve quite a bit, most do not. That’s what makes Trask a gamble, and more of a mid-round pick.

  44. PassingThru Says:

    Ha, true Jmarkbuc… and he has one of the best seats in the house.

    What a life!

  45. BradyBucs Says:


    The Bucs most likely won’t make it back to the Super Bowl. The Defense just isn’t good enough and now we have key injuries on Offense.

    Brady got out of the shadows of Belichick and won a Super Bowl on his own, all with one of the most losing franchises in sports. A true FAIRYTALE outcome for Brady that will forever be part of his legacy.

    Brady came back because we returned all 22 starters. We “bet the farm” to structure deals in a “high risk” way to bring everyone back to make another run.

    IT DIDN’T WORK OUT. Despite the 12-4 record, this Bucs team is probably only the 3rd or 4th best team in the NFC, let alone the NFL. The Defense is just too banged up and our secondary just isn’t good enough in a Passing League.

    COUNT ON IT… BRADY IS DONE after this season.

    Realistically, even though I hope I’m wrong, I don’t see us getting back to the NFC Championship game. We probably win the first round and lose the 2nd round.

    Brady will announce his retirement shortly thereafter and then…


    Trask will get a chance to start and a lot of our Vets will not be brought back. Godwin will most likely sign as a free agent with another team.

  46. BradyBucs Says:


    LOLZ at your “Trask Scouting.”

    “I didn’t like his mechanics, and some of that affected his arm strength and accuracy.”

    Accuracy issues? Dude had a 68.9% completion percentage after settings records at Florida for his senior season. He was one of the most accurate passers that year in all of college football.

  47. HC Grover Says:

    Except for Wild Man that draft was a waste of time and money.

  48. PassingThru Says:


    Did you see some of that camp tape? He was having a rough time, throwing INTs and incompletions. He wasn’t getting much into his throws either, and take a look at the sloppy footwork. This isn’t college where guys get open by several yards. In fact, if you really paid attention to stats you’ll see plenty of guys with so-so arms with 70% completion rates. And those guys never make it as pro QBs.

  49. Onetrickpony Says:

    Totally agree with you

  50. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    @”…Some QBs can clean up their mechanics and improve quite a bit, most do not. That’s what makes Trask a gamble, and more of a mid-round pick….”
    I really don’t understand at all “the mechanics” of a QB, seems we got plenty here that do.
    I divide the QBs in two big groups:
    a)wheelers(running like crazy from sideline to sideline)
    I like the fact that Trask is NOT a wheeler.
    As far as mid-round pick, he almost was third-round. Thats qualify him for NOT high pick in the draft.
    Soon he shall have chance to prove himself.
    That will happen if BA re-retired and/or TB12 retired. I would like him to be #2 with Tom…seems unlikely.

  51. PassingThru Says:

    Mechanics refers to how you throw the ball, not the mobility.

  52. captivajim Says:

    Really a shame – it is a wasted pick ..we really needed to use pick for DB

    Guess BA sees Gabbert as the future..But If Brady retires–BA will then quit & leave the problem to someone else ..who knos -maybe BL will sort it all out

  53. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    @”..Mechanics refers to how you throw the ball, not the mobility..”
    Must be something very hard to see if a QB has it or not; looks like our scouts missed it in case of Trask. Dang!

  54. DBS Says:

    Go back from 2016 to now and see how many CB’s and safeties we have drafted. Guess we should do it every year until we get it right. OR maybe sign some.

  55. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Joe, I don’t know how you do it, but to get all of these retired GMs and head coaches commenting on here is the best man. Kudos to you. Best website ever.

    “Poor mechanics”? Not a single commenter here would know poor mechanics if they looked in the mirror. I think most you are Winston holdouts. There’s your poor mechanics right there.

  56. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    BTW Gabbert’s career completion rate in college was around 55%. And I think he’s in the last year of his contract. Whether you like it or not, Trask is likely #2 next year. And there’s a reason nobody wants to put Griffin on the field.

  57. PassingThru Says:

    That’s what’s sad about this site Joe. Some very passionate fans, and too many folks who don’t know squat the game. They’re easy to identify, they don’t talk football, they only talk about fans.

  58. Defense Rules Says:

    PassingThru … Mac Jones ‘played within the system’, just like Tua did. Excellent receivers, strong running game to back him up, beefy OLine to protect him, all under the ‘control’ of an excellent play-caller. Jones’ strengths were excellent decision-making & accuracy IMO (sounds a lot like Tom Brady even when he started with the Pats?).

    Trask has several things going for him that I like: (1) 6’5″ & 236 lbs (can’t teach size); (2) 2-year starter at a major SEC school; (3) TD-to-INT ratio is not that shabby (69 TDs to 15 INTs). And oh ya, he’s ours for 4 yrs at a cost of just over $5 mil. IF he works out, we got an incredible bargain (2nd Rnd or not). IF he doesn’t, that’s chump-change in today’s NFL.

  59. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Obviously I hope you’re wrong, but I think you’re right.

  60. PassingThru Says:

    Defense Rules

    I noted that Mac Jones had better receivers and a superior offensive line, but there were traits that were first-round worthy. He had very good mechanics, he was a very rapid processor, in that he found an open man quickly (yes WRs helped, but that response time was impressive), he had an excellent touch as his ball was very catchable, he had incredible, totally unflappable pocket presence in that he kept his field of vision upfield yet sensed peripheral pressure, and did you see how he baited D linemen on screens? He had QB maturity beyond what you’d expect out of a college senior, and yet Mac Jones had only started for one season. That’s impressive. That resonated NFL starter. What I had trouble ascertaining was arm strength. That’s what is tough when you look at college QBs with feathery touches: How much of that is excellent touch, and how much of that is a lack of arm? I saw some nice intermediate-deep passes, and he looked like what I call a bucket thrower, he could sink a ball into a bucket at a distance. But could he get enough behind the ball to go further? That I couldn’t tell as those are the kinds of things NFL workouts expose.

  61. Listnfrmafar Says:

    DR, being in NE quite a few fans compare Jones to TB12 because they want a Brady. This is the major difference, he recently played in 3 what are considered big games the first being Buffalo in Buffalo, Pat’s won but Jones was allowed to pass all but three times, the second Indy and 3rd Bill’s at NE where in both cases he pissed down his leg. Proving he is still a rookie and plays like one.

    For those thinking Brady is babysitting or developing Trask, that’s up to Trask. If any of you really want to know how TB12 ticks go on ESPN+ and watch Man in the Arena, the first episode describes how.he was up Drew Bledsoes arse learning everything he could. Point being if Trask doesn’t have the work ethic Brady could give two shats.

  62. BBro Says:

    No one has any idea what may of happened and one damn good thing is Brady played. And what’s all this bad draft talk the guy hasn’t even been on the field. I did read that he came in for an injured Florida qb and after that no other qb had a chance at the position he Trask was that good. So before cutting someone’s legs out from under them don’t you think they deserve a chance to prove their self. I would say most the negativity is probably because he Trask didn’t attend someone’s favorite college if the truth was known.

  63. JimmyJack Says:

    Passing Through. Its kinda hard to judge Trask when they clearly brought him in to be a developemental player. Its like saying Cappa was a bad pick in his rookie year. We didnt draft these players to start.

    I dont know why you think drafting a QB is not a smart way to build the roster. Kinda a important position for me…….Im glad to see the Bucs make a move that shows they are thinking about life after Brady.

    And forget about drafting a CB. They were looking at OL after they passed on Trask and took Hainsey, after that they took a WR. We didnt take a CB til last few rounds…..CB didnt seem to be high on their radar.

  64. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Man, you just accidently poked a finger into a festering sore for this old fan. The Glazers plus the money factor stiffed the long suffering fans who stood behind the team during the previous 11+ years of woe. Bandwagon fans who have the wherewithal are filling the previously empty RaJay seats. It is harder, but not completely impossible, to get tickets now. (The same thing happened after 2002 so it was no shock this time. Add the pandemic and it is now going on two years since I’ve watched a home game from our stadium.) We are all “grown ups” here and accept reality, each in our own ways.

    I remain a raging Buccaneer fan no matter what. I WILL find my way into Raymond James Stadium sometime during our next season. I guarantee that.

    Go Bucs!!! Let’s get that Two-fer!

  65. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I’m with you, DBS. Only next year, maybe, do I anticipate seeing and assessing for myself what we have in Trask.

    I will be a fan after Tom Brady retires. I am loving every minute of the present era, though

    Go Bucs!

  66. PassingThru Says:


    Yeah I know, and that’s how I see Kyle Trask. My problem is that I disagree with using a late second-round pick. Part of it is that developmental QBs should be taken later, but most importantly, look at the team roster. You know the Bucs are going to bleed free agents this season, why not get a kid with a cheap rookie deal to replace one of your anticipated free agent losses? There really isn’t that much cap space after this season, less than most folks realize because there’s now some dead money that soaks up salary cap. Even with some creative accounting, there will be some key losses in personnel. And last but not least, the Bucs have a HOF QB who, at the time of the draft, had two years of anticipated shelf-life left. Get players who can make an impact now, while that Super Bowl window is still open.

    To me, the toughest positions to draft are QB and CB. I get CB draft failures, they’re kind of common. But that doesn’t mean you don’t try drafting one, or even better, two CBs (yeah it hedges the bet, and besides it was a weak and shallow position group). That’s where I thought Licht should have gone.

    Joe even called me out on draft night (good call Joe) on that belief, and I appreciated it because I wanted to air my reasons. Anyway, that’s my reasoning.

  67. Buc4evr Says:

    Kyle Trask = Trent Dilfer. Huge mistake. When Brady retires, the Bucs better be ready to sign another veteran, because Trask will plunge the Bucs back into another decade of despair.

  68. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I am not supposing that Trask has the base talent that Aaron Rogers had. Rogers did sit on the bench behind Brett Favre for a decently long time. Favre made it it clear that he saw no reason to help Rogers with his development at the time. (Hard-core Packer fans had the luxury of seeing Rogers as a potentially worthy successor which he has proved to be.)

    The Buccaneers franchise is an entirely different type of organization in a different situation. I believe Brady is the type of guy who will help Trask to develop his potential.

    I also have faith in the judgments of Arians and Licht in drafting Trask.

  69. Defense Rules Says:

    Listnfrmafar … ‘in Buffalo, Pat’s won but Jones was allowed to pass all but three times’. And that’s what I meant by ‘playing within the system’. That game plan didn’t call for Mac Jones to throw the ball 40 times like he did against us in Game 4 (he did manage to complete 31 against us for a 77.5% completion rate, so I guess he’s not truly ‘terrible’). Instead the Pats ran it 46 times against Buffalo for 222 yds & won the game 14-10. Strange gameplan because in the 12 games prior to that Jones had been averaging almost 32 pass attempts per game, and had been completing about 67% of those. What was important is that it worked. Unpredictability has always been a Belicheck trademark though.

  70. LakelandSteve Says:

    Who the hell is Kyle Trask? He plays for the Bucs?

  71. Oneilbuc Says:

    Again a bunch of bashing of Trask and no facts to back it up!! And guess what they said the same stuff about Brady, Montana, Wilson, Dak , Carr , Josh Allen, and teams pass on big Ben including the bucs !! 43 touchdowns and 8 picks over 4,000 yards and that’s playing in the SEC!!! So tell me why he can’t be the franchise quarterback for us ??? Oh that’s right yall believe Brady is playing until he’s 50 lol 😆 😂!!

  72. Listnfrmafar Says:

    DR, that strategy in Buffalo almost backfired in a big way. How was Belichick to know Buffalo would miss a 23 yd field goal and not convert on two back to back drives inside the Patriots red zone? He didn’t or he wouldn’t of called a timeout with 1:37 left in the game. Josh Allen unlikely missed two wide open receivers on 3rd & 4th down to win the game. Sorry but that was not having confidence in your QB to win a big one.

    Imagine hating a guy before he’s even appeared in a regular season game. You lynch-mobbers are epic. Give the kid a chance and hope we don’t see him for a few years.

  74. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – I remember the first preseason game that Rojo played in, I want to say @Cinncinnatti, you had idiots here saying he was bust — after the first preseason game! Those same idiots are the ones that were mad last year when we signed Fournette, saying we didn’t need him, he’s a bust, Rojo needs to get all the carries.

    The people calling Trask a bust, when they haven’t even saw him, are just the same reactionary morons that always make stupid comments and have zero consistency on anything, and they generally just repeat whatever someone says on the radio, or in whatever fake news newspaper they read, etc.

  75. DaBux Says:

    When Trask learns how to “wax on, wax off” properly as TB12 teaches him, then and only then should he start.

  76. Eddie Marz Says:

    Give Trask a break. Maybe he’ll get the TB12 kit and change his whole future, just like that kid who couldn’t run from Michigan. GOBUCS !

  77. The Chef Says:

    Tom Brady was 4th string QB in New England in his first season. You never know.

  78. Buccos Says:

    I believe that the Bucs had to draft a quarterback in the 2nd round and they felt like Trask was the BPA. When you have Tom Brady as a private tutor for a young QB how can you not take one high in the draft. What are you going to do draft a QB in the seventh round and waste Brady’s experience on him. You only have a guy like Brady once. You have to try osmosis on the most talented and most similar player available.

  79. Craig Says:

    I see the names on many who say Trask is a waste are the same as those who said Brady was washed up when he was signed.

    I think Trask will be better than fine. I am not sure, but he has a lot of intangibles that work in this league.

    He has the same drawback as Brady, not real mobile. He sees the field well enough that he can get rid of the ball quickly and has good accuracy in the middle range, just what Arians likes in a QB.

    If he fits for the next coach, I don’t know.

  80. Anthony Says:

    First I understand about timing and all that. So Bruce doesn’t want to
    Rest players because of timing. Then I guess he’s elated that the Bu s aren’t a 1 seed

  81. Rob Singer Says:

    More importantly: Read AB’s lengthy statement he and his atty. put out tonight. The guy DIDN’T QUIT–he was THROWN OUT…and because he couldn’t play due to pain in his ankle. And he has texts between him and Arians and him and the GM along with an MRI to prove it.

    Arians LIED and should be fired. AB should be brought back next year. Mental issues my ass. An overly dramatic exit for sure, but how would YOU feel if your boss kept trying to force you to play when you couldn’t?

    What BS they tried to feed us.

  82. Chuck Ellison Says:

    There is a lot of people on this thread that seem to want Trask to fail. I don’t understand why he is considered unworthy of the draft pick we took him with. I do know that Florida has never produced great NFL QB… But Trask does have the basic skills that could be a champion under the right system and conditions. The problem is, these coaches will all leave when Brady leaves. So Trask year of learning might all be for naught if Brady retires at the end of this playoff run.

  83. BuccaneerScotty Says:

    kyle will be the qb next year and y’all will love him BA and Brady along with all these one year guys will be gone its going to get blown up

  84. HB Says:

    Trask could thread the eye of a needle in a pitch black room. The only picks he threw were in his last bowl game against Oklahoma on a Gator team that already shot their “load.”

  85. Capt.Tim Says:

    I said it, when they drafted him. He was a huge waste of a pick.
    I wish we could up draft night comments

    Licht and Ariens completely screwed up that pick. EVERYBODY knows it was a disaster pick except for the 2 guys that actually make the decisions.
    How is that possible? They just pissed away a perfectly good 2nd round pick.
    How exactly do you know how this is gonna turn out?

  87. Hodad Says:

    Joe, I never thought we’d see Trask this season. What I would’ve liked you to ask is how is he developing behind the scenes?

  88. Vin Says:

    Trask is gonna be the best QB to come out of 2020 draft. Steelers should try and make a trade for him.

  89. Oneilbuc Says:

    Vin . No Trask should be the future of the bucs at quarterback!! How much longer do yall think Brady is playing ?? The bucs would be stupid to let Trask go without giving him a real chance to be the starter !!

  90. LongtimeBuc Says:

    The Gator offense between Franks and Trask was like night and day. It was literally an instant change from the moment Trask stepped onto the field. You Gator hating morons haven’t even seen enough of his work to form any kind of sound assessment of his prospects for professional success. Deny it publicly all you want, deny away, you know damn well I’m right. Fools.
