Jamel Dean Has Gone Next-Level In Quest To Improve

September 25th, 2022

Buccaneers starting cornerback and bag-chaser Jamel Dean is not messing around when it comes to improving.

That’s what happens when a guy truly yearns to be great. And it doesn’t hurt to be in a contract year.

Dean will appear later today on the Buccaneers Radio Network pregame show and talk about how he sought help from offensive coaches to learn about his own game and how offensive players see the game in a quest to improve. Buccaneers-employed reporter Casey Phillips revealed this in a team-produced YouTube show. She gave an advance tease of her Dean interview and noted how Dean says he’s already enjoyed the fruit of his study with offensive minds.

Smart and savvy play by Dean, who had two interceptions last Sunday.

Bucs fans remember well what happened the last time Aaron Rodgers and the Packers came to The Licht House, early in the 2020 season. Dean seemingly sucked the will out of Rodgers on that hot day with a pick-six (photo above).

Let’s do it again today, Jamel!

    Speaking of Pick Sixes-Mike Edwards leads the NFL in pick sixes since 2019.

    Jamel Dean has come a long way from when he was a rookie.’
    I hope he picks off Rogers and upsets him so much that he goes for his Psychedelic Drug Stash, after the game!

    Go Licht!! The team of BA and Licht are kicking arse in the draft.

  4. jimm Says:

    i gotta believe todd bowles has more influence in the draft on defensive players (even in the past) than ba

  5. LVMYBUCS Says:

    I really didnt like this dude last couple seasons and I am still on the fence. We will see if he can keep it up.

  6. BucsFanSince76 Says:

    when healthy-Bucs have best secondaryin the league.

  7. George Says:

    Seems like Jamel is focusing on interceptions this year which is a good thing . He has the size and speed to pick off more of the deep throws

    I remember 25-year old Wayne Haddix in 1990… 7 INTs, 231 return yards, 3 TDs. I can only imagine the hype that would be around that guy today if he did today what he did back then.

    Well, anywho, the next year the Bucs cut him after 6 games. He played 7 more games for the Bengals and that was it for his career, he was out of the league at age 26 and would have been completely forgotten if not for one thing, some Japanese game developers.

    The gave devs for Tecmo Super Bowl, knowing nothing about football, based the player abilities in the game purely off the 1990 stat sheet. No favors given to big names, since the Japanese developers didn’t know any of the big names. Thus they created the immortal legend of Wayne Haddix.

    Grover is prepared to watch! This is gonna be a helluvagame! Porterhouse ready for grill, Adult beverages, check. Garlic Bread, check. Ceasar Salad …check. LFG…check

    I have bin on the fence too about dean and smb but I really do believe that competition at thatn any position pushes players past their best. The addition of Ryan and Neal deff did that. Also Ryan being the defensive coach n mastermind like we bin hearing ramped it up even more. If this season dean n smb play consistent then we got some keepers. Idk how they will all get paid but let me tell ya we can’t let dean walk if he balls out this year. His speed n size you can’t teach.

  11. HC Grover Says:

    Mayfield is worse than Winston.

  12. NCBucfan Says:

    Besides Lavonte, he’s probably my favorite player on defense!

  13. HC Grover Says:

    Ha Ha Winston is stainkin it up.

  14. NCBucfan Says:

    I’m still laughing at the idiots saying the Saints were going to win the South. Hahahahahahaha!! Looking at you dummie Peter King

  15. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Last year against the Girls was the 1st time I’ve ever seen a player with fear in his eyes covering players. Hopefully he’s faced and buried his fears and is on the up swing this year because the way the o is struggling this defense will be carrying us until our “prized” free agent signings are playing together and Brady is finally on the same page as them. If not we wasted a lot of money

  16. Jerseybuc Says:

    Hit this crybaby a few times force a turnover or 2 he will quit!!

  17. NCBucfan Says:


    “The Saints will win the NFC South”. Lol

  18. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Iggles look good but they haven’t played anybody good. Gotta keep pace with them.

  19. Buczilla Says:

    @Rod Munch

    Super Tecmo Bowl is the best sports game ever made and Wayne was insanely good. I still play a version of the original Tecmo Bowl on the Swtch with my kids.

  20. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Yes, Mayfield is terrible.
    JayMiss is still JayMiss.
    Who’s worse?

  21. Bucs97 Says:

    Julio & D Smith inactive

  22. DoooshLaRue Says:

    No one does the deer in the headlights look better than Jaboo.

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    D Smith…..Julio, Otten out…..

  24. Iamabuc Says:

    I have a feeling (seeing them play in the last 2 1/2 games), that the Saints will be the last team in our division. I’m looking at you, all the know-it-all in the media….🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  25. DoooshLaRue Says:

    JayMiss lives!

  26. Iamabuc Says:

    …and if you guys are watching; there’s Winston being Winston…just saying…

  27. Iamabuc Says:

    And if you guys are watching, there’s Winston being Winston….just saying ….

  28. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Mayfield suuucks so bad. Poor kitties

  29. mark2001 Says:

    I said that without Payton to reel him in and Brees to hold his hand, he might very well revert back to the same old Jameis we knew so well. But no one in the media… I mean no one… said that. Heaven forbids. But it was true.

  30. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Careful Mark…… it’s a slippery woke slope.

  31. mark2001 Says:

    Doosh. Just saying. Jameis has almost always played the way he did for us. The aberration was when Payton and Brees had his ear and could counsel him on the sideline. Who really though he would become a check down to the open man/ball control QB without that?

  32. mark2001 Says:

    I mean… the new and improved Jameis? I almost had to chuckle. I wish the guy well when it doesn’t affect us. But how many times do these guys really become something they haven’t been their entire football career at mid-career?

  33. mark2001 Says:

    BTW Doosh. I’ve said it at least a dozen times on various articles over the last year. It wasn’t rocket science.

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    Buczilla – It’s a shame they refuse to release Tecmo Super Bowl on anything modern. Tecmo Bowl is good, but it’s not even remotely as good as Tecmo Super Bowl, which had a season mode, stat tracking, player health and doubled the number plays – plus it has all the teams. If you look around you can find yearly roster updates for it even today, and it’s very easy to emulate. I still play it all the time with the roster updates.

  35. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I agree with you Mark, without reins JayMiss is a mistake machine.
    I’m just saying that a lot of people on here called The Haters ray cist if we had any negative comments about the Soiled Messiah.

  36. Rod Munch Says:

    Red Zone is awesome. If you’re too much of a welfare slob to buy Red Zone, you’re an idiot.

  37. Rod Munch Says:

    DoooshLaRue – It’s not that you’re a raycaster, you’re just a retard.

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    Matty Ice > Mahomes


  39. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Still the leader of the Nuthugger Brigade huh Munch.


    People don’t like my QB JayMiss.
    They say mean things.
    That makes me sooo angry.


    Sorry, Rod……. my bad.
    Let me help you up.

  40. Rod Munch Says:

    OMG I was defending you. So sensitive.

  41. Rod Munch Says:

    The Dolphins need to bring back Reggie Roby.
