Desperate For A Quarterback

February 25th, 2022

The recent words from Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians propping up 2011 first-round draft pick flop Blaine Gabbert as Tom Brady’s successor have given quite a few Bucs fans the shivers if not hives.

Just taken on face value, this Gabbert talk just drips with desperation. And one man who would agree is heavy metal-headbanging Jason La Canfora of CBS. In a recent column, he ranked teams “most desperate” for a quarterback.

La Canfora has the Bucs second on his list.

Life comes at you fast. Going from defending a Lombardi Trophy to waving goodbye to Tom Brady is a lot to swallow. And even with their cap issues, and a roster purge, there will still be abundant talent here and the NFC South will be up for grabs. Could they be the landing spot for Wilson or Rodgers? Still would have a lot to offer. It obviously worked out well for TB12 there!

Joe thinks we can forget about drama queen choke artist Aaron Rodgers. Reports are that he wants $50 million from the Packers. A year.

For Tom Brady, Joe might swallow that. For a guy that regularly gags in the playoffs, has a less than ideal record in warm-weather sites and hates the turf at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway, Joe will pass on Rodgers and his puking/shatting ways.

Joe is almost willing to embrace Carson Wentz. And hey, if Arians is such a wizard with quarterbacks, is free agent Mitch Trubisky really worse than 32-year-old Gabbert?

    I don’t know? We do have a Super Bowl-winning Head Coach who apparently is willing to put his legacy on the line and endorse Gabbert as this year’s starter.

    Who am I to question his logic?

    …and I’ve only stayed at the Holiday Inn Express twice in my life 🙂

    The Gabbert thing with BA is just Coach speak. The Bucs are desperate and Jason is trying to work a deal for a starting QB. No way is Gabbert going to be the Bucs starter next season. If he is then waive goodbye to any thought of signing quality free agents.

    Drama queen Karen Rogers does like to💩🛌 in crunch time it does seem… more times than not. It must be a karma thingie.

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Buckle up Buc fans…..we may just have to suck it up with Gabbert……but I’d at least go out and get one of these to compete with him.

    Bridgewater, Mariota, Winston, Trubisky, Flaco, Dalton, Fitz….or any number of experienced on the street cheap vets.

    With Brady. Never without Brady.

    Gabberts a backup for a reason but I will say this in the few garbage time games that he played in when TB12 was taken out gabbert didn’t look all that bad but again this was in garbage time against bad teams. If Oline stays in tact we bring Godwin back sign Lenny honestly besides jaymiss this offense has a ton of talent and insert any QB and we should do good

    Transitioning from Brady to Rodgers would be like transitioning from a TB12 sponsored Hollywood party to a Panchakarma butt cleansing Grateful Dead concert- different but interesting…

  8. Buc50 Says:

    Rodgers is not coming here especially with his salary demands. We are still paying for Brady this coming year.

  9. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I had to laugh when Aaron Rodgers talked about his Panchakarma butt cleansing.
    He can be so full of Shiit sometimes, a good Panchakarma butt cleansing can only be good for him.

    Obviously BA stepped in it committing to comeback later to find out Brady said see ya wouldn’t wanna be ya. Now Superbowl winning Succo Arians has to step up and actually coach or let BL do it so he has someone to throw under the bus when he fails. BA’s only chance is if Brady gets tired of performing monagea toi sex scenes with Jane Fonda and Sally Fields. Betty White was slated for Lily Tomlins role but had another engagement.

    We are probably going to have to keep most of our draft picks to replenish the roster, I’m not sure I see a trade for a QB happening unless it’s like a 3rd rounder for Wentz or JG.

    Someone like Trubisky or even Jameis are the cheaper one year options through free agency. I personally would prefer Trubisky because he was in a truly awful situation in Chicago on the offensive side of the ball anyways, and he didn’t turn over the ball like crazy like Jameis. He is accurate and can move, he just needs a fresh start in my opinion. He struggled with the deep game like most young QB’s do, and with basically a year off, he is likely to have improved. It would just be a one year prove it deal, and that’s likely what every team would be willing to offer to him.

    Texans are going to want the farm for Deshaun Watson, and I don’t think we can afford that anymore. We need cheap effective draft picks all over again.

    I’m also a Trask fan, but he’s going to need a great roster around him. In particular, we are going to have to firm up the running game on offense and passing game on defense.

    I’d keep Godwin and Carlton Davis over everyone else, but I think we might only be able to keep Godwin, and have to look to cheaper out-of-house free agents and young draft picks. I think next year is largely a transition year, and 2023 we will have a genuine chance at a Super Bowl again if we play this offseason right/manage finances properly.

    We already kicked a ton of money down the road last year, if we do it again this year, you are asking to go right back to where the Bucs came from: the basement of the NFC South.

    Wait and see if Wentz gets released and then sign a FA QB and not Gabbert.

  13. Anonymous Says:

    I’m not wanting to get in the middle of the FSU- UF school fiasco but I went back and watched games on YouTube that Trask played in and it went head to head with the top rookie QB’s in the league including Burrow, Mac Jones and other very good top teams. He did have a dismal bowl game against the Sooners but many of his top offensive players didn’t player due to possible injury and they heading to the draft. I say play both he and Gabbert and see what we have rather than going after something that may not be better that what’s here now.

    I always thought AR had something up his butt……. know I know.

    Why everyone so worried about Cap Bucs can Create over 60million in Cap space for this season Chill out y’all

  16. Anonymous Says:

    Agree Jordan, give Trubisky a shot. Remember he beat us pretty good couple years ago. Let him battle it out with Trask and Gabbert….

  17. Brandon Says:

    Gabbert should be brought back no matter what. He knows the offense. Whether we sign or draft a QB, Gabbert taught Brady the offense and knows it backwards and forwards. Ideally we sign another veteran to come in and compete with Gabbert and push Trask. Vets that could be had without breaking the bank that I like are: Jacoby Brissett, Mitch Trubisky, Carson Wentz, and finally Jameis Winston. Wentz would be most expensive both in having to trade for him and salary… but Brissett is solid, Trubisky still has untapped potential and has had success in the league… and Jameis knows the offense and might have matured a bit.

  18. Buczilla Says:

    I completely agree with that last paragraph. The vaunted qb whisperer should be able to make a scrub qb look at least decent.
