    Not Trask or Gabbert!

  2. ClodHopper Says:

    Let Russ fire the cannons!

  3. Buddhaboy19 Says:

    Jimmy G is a winner. I think you can win with him, obviously. 2 NFC championships and 1 super bowl. Get him

  4. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Why not mortgage the house for Russell Wilson? None of these guys will get us to the promise land.

  5. Oxycodoms Says:

    Can you put andrew luck as a choice

  6. Caleb Says:

    This list is depressing. Hopefully other.

  7. Gunnin4Ya Says:

    Deshaun Watson should have been on the list.

    Sac up and go get him!

  8. fartman Says:

    yeah who cares… we suck again

  9. tampabuscsbro Says:

    Unironically Kyle Trask is probably the best bet on that list.

  10. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I notice you didn’t run with Cowturd’s absurd proposal of JPP, ME13 and 2 maybe 3 first round picks depending how many years Rodgers starts to Green Bay for the whiny beotch.

    I’m open minded and largely trust the staff except for 3!!! NO Aaron Rodgers, no Fameis Jameis and no Deshaun Watson. All three have talent and all three have MAJOR BAGGAGE.

    I’m spoiled!! After having 2 years of class I do not wish to descend to drunken 3AM gropers…or Watson who has a litany of charges against him so bad a team paid him MILLIONS to sit the bench…or a whiny beotch who chokes every year in the playoffs.

    DO NOT TRADE ME13 for ANY QB. I’d rather give Trask a shot.

    BTW…Gabbert looks horrible because of first impressions. He was a 10th overall pick for a HORRIBLE team which led to predictable failure.

    OTOH…he was 3-5 in 2015 on a horrible 5-11 Jim Tomsula poorly coached Niner’s team. IE he played to the level of the team.
    If he was the starter the past two years would we have won an SB and made it past the first round. NO. But we wouldn’t have sucked either.

    My point…Arians has familiarity with him..raves about his arm…he wouldn’t be the first QB to resurrect a career on a good team.

    If the BUCS BRAINTRUST decides to go with Gabbert starting and mentoring Trask I won’t be heading to the Sunshine Skyway to jump as many others here seem to be headed.

  11. Tbbucs3 Says:

    “Unironically Kyle Trask is probably the best bet on that”

    Tampabucsbro, how could you possibly know this??

  12. VSyl Says:

    If we don’t bring Wilson on a team friendly contract, for sure, trying out trask is the best option. You have nothing to lose.

  13. HC Grover Says:

    Time for the Ariens/Gabbert 1 year disaster tour. Call FEMA! Where is Medicated Pete when ya need him?

  14. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Kirk Cousins and Jimmy G are the best on that list

  15. stpetebucsfan Says:

    BTW as an aside….Good Morning Football is having a lot of fun pointing out that Brady did NOT mention the Pats or Belichik anywhere in his announcement.

    It’s all Bucs, the Glazers, the braintrust and coaching and teammates.

    It’s all Bucs baby! I love it.

  16. Buc50 Says:

    Roll with Trask. If he bombs out, we are in position to draft another QB. People can forget about Rogers and Wilson. Those teams are not going to trade with us since we are in the same conference.

  17. Tye Says:

    Jimmy G is the only one on that list with a resume of winning and the high success in this league…
    All the rest have failed and basically are cast offs…

  18. VSyl Says:

    Why people don’t believe trask?? Brady was an even riskier bet and won a SB in his first year. Trask may play better than most think he will.

  19. bucsfaninchina Says:


  20. VSyl Says:

    I just hope this stubborn coach staff doesn’t put up with gabbert. It’s more than clear that he is nothing more than a backup.

  21. Chimichango Says:

    Trask or Gabbert. They bomb, you’re in position to draft a better qb in ‘23. Plus you know what you have as far as back up qbs go.

  22. Daniel Says:

    This is a disastrous list of QBs as long as Arians is the QB. Combination of INT throwers and guys with noodle arms. In spite of how often he’s mentioned here, Jimmy G is an awful fit in an Arians offense.

  23. SC Bucs Fan Says:


  24. HC Grover Says:

    Ariens will let Gabbert handle the first few losses then work Trask in to the losing pattern.

  25. YoungBucs Says:

    A Bucs source just told me Tom is actually allowing them to clone him. The clone will be ready by ota’s.

  26. Plyflop Says:

    Tyler Huntley

  27. tampabuscsbro Says:

    Tbbucs3 Jimmy G BLEW IT on a super bowl caliber roster. Twice.

    Kirk Cousins has always been overrated the rest of the QBs are stop gaps at very best. It is probably the best choice to see what we have in Kyle Trask as a starter because it’s not a good idea to leverage a lot on that list of QBs

  28. Bucs Orlando Says:

    This is the list of who will be the backup right?

    …… right?


    Is it too early to start drinking?

  29. Cleanhouse Says:

    Ha Kyle trask and garoppalo over Winston? Come on people!! JW is easily the second best QB we’ve had. Poll is full of Gators fans

  30. The Scourge Says:

    Once he’s cut and clears waivers, Matt Ryan?

  31. tampabuscsbro Says:


  32. Nutterbutter95 Says:

    If it is not Trask what the Eff was the point in drafting him.

  33. David Says:

    I like Kyle Trask but I don’t understand how you could vote for him. The team has the potential to make a deep playoff run still, they need a veteran quarterback. We have no idea what Kyle Trask looks like other than what we saw in preseason. He’s been inactive the whole season.

    On that list I would take Jimmy G. I voted for OTHER because if you’re going to trade for someone – I’d go for Russell Wilson, although I do not have any idea how how him or Jimmy G’s contracts are

  34. David Says:

    Anybody saying Jameis Winston needs to be banned from this website. They’re obviously no longer a Buccaneer fan. That’s just pathetically ridiculous.
    One of the greatest offensive minds in football over the last two decades, Sean Payton, took a look at Jameis Winston and chose to retire

  35. Colin in Canada Says:

    Trask is a good QB. I hope he gets a shot.

  36. Craig Says:

    The Bucs are forced into a rebuilding year. The salary cap is going to hurt them, but not as bad as, say, the Rams.

    Sign Godwin and then work with the draft for O-line and D-line depth, maybe attempt another CB.

    Then find a game manager of a QB and open a competition with Trask. I think Trask will win, partly because his game runs along the general philosophy of Arians, whose staff will be mostly intact.

  37. Another Joe Says:


  38. Bucco Says:

    Tom Brady😭

  39. uhmmm Says:

    Russ or Carr

  40. Bucsfanman Says:

    David- I think you answered your own question. I voted Trask because we don’t know anything about him. We WON’T know until he plays.
    Yes, Wilson and Jimmy G are known commodities but we’ll be in the same exact position further down the road and asking the same questions with even less talent. We can’t keep kicking this can down the road.
    What better position can you put an inexperienced QB in? He’ll have established WRs and RBs that can make up for any inefficiencies.

  41. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Matt Ryan wouldn’t be a bad option at all

  42. 03Bucsfan Says:

    We do not need to see Kyle Trash commanding our offense. He didn’t even play in highschool

  43. Tbbucs3 Says:


    So you’d rather roll with a complete unknown QB than a quarterback who just nearly made a Super Bowl? Makes no sense especially since the Bucs have a roster similar to the 49ers.

  44. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Joe, why would you float Derek Carr multiple times as a viable candidate & then not put him in the poll?

  45. Joe in Michigan Says:

    But, but, but…Passing Thru said over and over again that Trask was a completely wasted pick. The Bucs might actually need him? It can’t be, Passing Thru is right about everything, just ask him.

  46. Kstoges Says:

    i wouldn’t mind Kirk cousins or D car at all

  47. WalkdaPlank Says:

    The amount of votes for Jameis Winston is sickening. I’d rather paint the walls of my house with 9mm than see him throw another pass in a Bucs uniform.

    Not only was he awful for us, but now he has a torn ACL on his resume. Yeah that means he’ll be cheap, but in this league you get what you pay for.

    Trask is our 2nd round draft pick, slung the ball pretty well at Florida, and sat behind the GOAT for a year. He’s the obvious answer, barring a blockbuster move.

  48. captivajim Says:

    well..they have plenty of cap space now.. 2 yrs ago Brady did their job & called them . …… So , now we’ll see who the brain trust will call…

  49. Capt.Tim Says:

    The next Buc QB will be
    ( drumroll )
    Aaron Rodgers

  50. Arn Platz Says:

    Look on the bright side, game tickets will be less than Busch Gardens tickets again.

  51. James G Arntz Says:

    No thanks to Jimmy G. He was terrible against the Rams!

  52. Bucsfanman Says:

    Tbbucs- It’s a gamble no matter what. All I’m saying is that we’ll be having this same exact conversation in 2-3 years when Jimmy or Russ are on the downhill or we have to pay huge sums and can’t afford to sign other guys. Do we keep signing vets every time we need a QB? We have to develop a QB at some point.
    And, for the record, obviously the Bucs play a VASTLY different style of offensive football than the 49ers. Is it a ‘good fit’? It’s a fair question for any vet QB.

  53. Oxycodoms Says:

    Arians isnt coming back with trask as qb, forget it about

  54. Swampbuc Says:

    This team is once again a dumpster fire. When all the corpses are cleared away, it’s 2009 all over again. Except instead of Raheehaw we’ll have Todd’s Bowels or Bozo the Clown.

    Thanks, Todd.

  55. Tye Says:

    LoL… Cousins is catching up to Winston… How is it that either of those qbs are even on the list….
    Can’t be for the interest of the Bucs to be a winning team!

  56. Dom>Licht Says:

    If Trask is not ready to at least compete for the starting job then he was a bad pick OR this coaching staff has NO idea how to develop a player. Remember that the Charges thought Tyrod Taylor was a better option than Herbert… he only saw the field because of injury

  57. Rod Munch Says:

    27 people voted for Bridgewater? LOL!

    If Trask is your QB it’s only because you’re blowing up the team and playing for the top pick in the 2023 draft. Anyone who thinks Trask will keep them competitive is a moron.

  58. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    I missed the poll by a few minutes, but I would have voted for Trask. I have no idea how much cap space the Bucs will have, but I am assuming guys like Rodgers or even Cousins still have large salary numbers on their current deals? Guys that are likely available and affordable are probably not leading the team to the playoffs, so I stand by seeing what Trask can do given reps with the first team. If he fails then the Bucs likely are in position to land a top QB prospect in the draft, but if he succeeds at being at least a solid starting QB you have a guy on a cheap contract that you can build around and hopefully develop into your franchise QB.

  59. Defense Rules Says:

    David … ‘The team has the potential to make a deep playoff run still, they need a veteran quarterback.’

    Deep playoff run? None of us have the slightest clue what our roster will look like come Game 1 this season. Over HALF of it has to be replaced because of free agency, retirements, etc. And on top of that, our 2022 schedule looks to be MUCH harder than what we faced this past season. And oh ya, we’ll probably have a number of coaching changes to deal with also, which admittedly could work out as a positive or negative. We flat don’t know much at this point, EXCEPT that this team will be undergoing a LOT of changes and that we have a LOT of work to do to be competitive.

    I don’t disagree at all David that we need a veteran QB, BUT … I’d like to see what we have in Trask first. Veteran QBs (who are any good) cost a LOT of $$$ nowadays, even middle-of-the-pack ones. Kirk Cousins for instance signed a 2 year, $66.0 mil contract with the Vikings, including a $30,000,000 signing bonus, $66,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $33,000,000. In 2022, Cousins will earn a base salary of $35,000,000, while carrying a cap hit of $45,000,000 and a dead cap value of $45,000,000. Minnesota went 8-9 this past season. Vikings are MINUS 14 mil on their 2022 salary CAP right now, so I kinda doubt they’ll be making any major improvements for this season. And they couldn’t trade Cousins even if they wanted to ($45 mil dead CAP?). Bad gamble?

    Gambling on a rookie QB has some huge advantages in terms of upgrading much of the rest of the roster (due to the rookie’s low cost), but obviously it’s risky. We MIGHT have a bad season, OR … we MIGHT have a decent season & we qualify for the playoffs (the NFC South does look to be weak this year). I’m in favor of rolling the dice. Some you win; some you lose. Guess that’s why they call it gambling.

  60. Dom>Licht Says:

    Nobody on Joes list keeps us competitive… this is 500 team without Brady. Didn’t make the NFC championship ship game with Brady what makes anyone think that any QB list is even going to get us in the playoffs let alone win a playoff game.

  61. Saskbuco Says:

    I would trade for Gardner Minshew and bring him to battle, low cost, possible high reward

  62. Bucsfanman Says:

    Rod- Just a question. Is it really “throwing in the towel” with Trask if you have ME13 and CG14 and sign your vet OL and RB?
    It’s never an ideal situation to throw an untested QB into the deep end. However, can you think of a better situation? He knows the system, has familiarity with the players and coaches and sat behind the GOAT for a year.
    And don’t give me “future draft picks” either. That’s almost worse. Somebody in the organization knows whether or not Trask can play.

  63. Mexican Buc Says:

    Give Task a chance. It’s the right time to do it

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucsfanman – Mike Glennon had Evans and VJ, a better running back in the Muscle Hamster, a good offensive line….

    QBs who haven’t played rarely do anything good – and Trask was in particular seen as a project player. They literally have to teach the guy how to throw an NFL ball and not those limp armed soft college throws. He was working on it last preseason, which is why his accuracy went to hell and he looked awful.

    If I’m wrong and we got a QB of the future – then wonderful. But I do not believe he’s close to ready, and he will be ruined by playing too soon. Good news, the Bucs get the #1 pick out of it.

  65. Go Bucs Says:

    @ Saskbuco I’m in agreement with you. Gardner Minshew might be an option. Cheap, tough, and driven. He played really well for Philly in a pinch.

  66. Cannon Says:

    LMAO @ Other

    …and now I have to go in the corner and cry

  67. Jon Juergensen Says:

    “Rod Munch Says: Anyone who thinks Trask will keep them competitive is a moron.”

    You’re the moron. The stats below from the 2020 SEC Championship Game show that Kyle Trask played toe-to-toe with Alabama’s Mac Jones. You seem not to have noticed, but Jones started as a rookie in the 2021 season with the Patriots and did well, taking the Patriots to the playoffs. You have no factual basis for saying Trask will fail, so why not tell us the factual basis behind your hatred?

    Mac Jones: 418 YDS / 9.7 AVG / 5 TD / 1 INT / QBR 92.3
    Kyle Trask: 408 YDS / 10.2 AVG / 3 TD / 0 INT / QBR 91.7

    Arguably, Trask performed better than Jones in that game as Jones had a stellar running game supporting him while Trask had no running game.

  68. Aaron Says:

    No Russ or Rodgers, go with Trask, if the coaches are confident in him.

  69. tvan101 Says:

    Derek Carr

  70. Rod Munch Says:

    Juergensen – I don’t hate him, I said I don’t think he’s ready, and I said he’s a project player. Why, if he’s better than Mac Jones, and he’s much bigger, why did he last basically until the 3rd round then?

    He lasted that long because he didn’t throw an NFL ball in college. If you’re a Florida fan, and I was one in the Spurrier years, I learned from my lesson from Danny Wuerffel. As a moron at the time who didn’t really understand the difference in an NFL arm and a college arm, I said why can’t Wuerffel be successful in the NFL, his stats are amazing, he’s a pin-point passer, he should be great.

    I’ve seen enough of the these guys, who throw soft passes, rainbow passes, fail at the NFL level, that I know what to expect. So do NFL scouts, which is why he lasted until basically the 3rd round despite his excellent size and ability to throw deep, even though those deep balls have no velocity.

    So the Bucs during camp last year had to teach him to throw with velocity, you could see it in the preseason games, it’s why his accuracy went to hell. He was throwing the ball harder, and accuracy is what you lose when you do that. However, the reason the Bucs WOULD spend their 2nd rounder on him is that, unlike most college touch passers, Trask has excellent size, and we saw that once he changed up the way he passed, the balls were in the acceptable category when it comes to velocity.

    If he can build on that, then maybe down the road, he can be an NFL starter, but I think he needs more than one year to do that. Last preseason we saw when he rushed, he reverted to those soft passes, and it was a disaster when that happened.

    But in closing, college stats don’t mean much of anything, if they did Quinton Flowers would be an NFL MVP.
