Rookie Talks Clueless Media And Fans

September 16th, 2022

The cocky side of Bucs rookie guard Luke Goedeke has emerged again.

It came out on draft night when he talked about how he’s a glass-eater ready to maul all comers. Then his swagger seemed to disappear as the challenge of August and a battle for a starting job set in.

Well, that swagger is back.

Goedeke sat down with the Salty Dogs podcast after Sunday’s win and got back to talking about how he’s “not a nice guy whatsoever” on the football field and how he’s steaming with pride for how he and Robert Hainsey performed in their starting debuts.

The doubters are and were clueless, Goedeke said.

“People outside the building are going to have their thoughts and everything, but at the end of the day, they don’t know two things that are going on in here,” Goedeke said. “Obviously, [Hainsey and I] shut all those doubters out the way we performed on Sunday.”

Goedeke also glowed about the unwavering trust shown in him at One Buc Palace.

Interestingly, Goedeke said his momentum is building. He called Wednesday’s practice his best of the year.

Get’em, Luke!

    Don’t jinx it Luke.

    Go back to being humble.

  2. Dooley Says:

    O’Doyle rules!

  3. Defense Rules Says:

    Swagger is a beautiful thing, as long as it’s backed up on the field. Luke got off to a very good start against Dallas, but it’s easy to fall back to earth with a thud if you let up for a second.

  4. ocala Says:

    He’s going to get better and better as the season goes. With him and Hainsey getting all this action in before Jenson comes back after the bye will give the Bucs the best interior line depth in the league.

  5. Tim Says:

    I know the media asks questions that these guys are supposed to answer but it’s always served me well to work in silence. Let the work speak for itself.

  6. firethecannons Says:

    just as soon have this bravado then a rookie that gets abused

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Defenses have to respect Goedeke & Hainsey until & if they show signs of weakness…….hopefully they hold up.

  8. Goatfarmer Says:

    The Saints are not the team to be a rookie guard flapping your yap in front of.

    Especially when Tristin Wirfs admits that Cam Jordan is his toughest assignment. Watch Jordan twist inside and mow Goedeke over.

  9. BucsNoles Says:

    Slow down rookie it’s just 1 game.
    But I like the confidence

  10. Timbucs2 Says:

    If he keeps opening running lanes for Left-hook Lenny like he did against the Cowpies, he can pat himself on the back all he wants.

  11. teacherman777 Says:

    His body needed time to adapt to switching from RT to LG.

    RT’s rarely play with their hand in the ground.

    Goedeke looked legit. He will get better and better with more snaps.

    I can admit I was wrong.

  12. Vegas Says:

    Young bucks don’t insight the opponents D ….be humble play the game

  13. Timbucs2 Says:

    If he can keep opening up running lanes for Left-hook Lenny like he did against the Cowpies, he can pat himself on the back all he wants.

  14. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Hoisting the Lombardi Trophy is the time to brag about your abilites. For now, just zip it.

  15. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Good to be confident, but it’s a little like a 16-year old after his first time driving a car. “I got this. I’m a good driver”

    FWIW according to PFF, he did pretty well run blocking but quite terribly in pass blocking.

  16. DBS Says:

    As long as he backs it up on the field I don’t care what he says.

  17. Arn platz Says:

    Saints have a better D line than Dallas. Sunday will be very telling

  18. Cobraboy Says:

    Shut up and play, rookie.

    Prove it two games in a row.

  19. Infomeplease Says:

    I agree with LG.. that almost all of the media and fans are clueless as to what’s going on!! Information is power!!! LFG!!

  20. Destinjohnny Says:

    One play at a time big man
    Don’t get over your skis

  21. Kgh4life Says:

    The Saints have two DTs that are definitely better than Dallas, we’ll see how it turns out on Sunday.

  22. Hodad Says:

    Just keep backing the talk up.

  23. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    He is a great run blocker when he pulls. We all saw that against Dallas.
    I like the swagger!

  24. Redeemer Says:

    I’m sure the Saints took note of his comments. Shut up and play!! One freaking game, and this kid thinks he’s John Hannah.

  25. Dave in Winter Park, Fla Says:

    Cam Jordan is “The 👑 King of New Orleans. A Man’s Man. Cam gonna send TB12 to THE HOUSE OF PAIN ❗️Brady goes 0-5 vs Saints Sunday and Bucs 0-8 since September, 2018.

  26. Day 1- 76 Says:

    There is nothing worse than a cocky rookie. Rein it in Dude. Put some games together and then people might believe…Good job last Sunday though.

  27. Bucsfan13 Says:

    The kid needs to shut his mouth. He opened some lanes in the run game, but his pass block win rate was bad. I’m not sold on him all. There is confidence and there is cockiness. This is cocky.

    Maybe Brady showing him clips of people saying how he sucks so much actually worked. Haisney impressed me more than Goedeke. During the game on Sunday, you saw Brady yelling at Hainsey. NFL films had video of Brady telling the OL that Parsons got to him twice, and he needs to help out Wells. My guess is Hainsey didn’t slide protection the right way.

  28. ocala Says:

    Falcons abused that Saints line last week.

  29. View from 132 Says:

    I like this. He’s a pro athlete. He should show up like he going to dominate. He shouldn’t apologize for being on the field because of the Saints. The Saints were a Falcon collapse from a blow out loss Sunday.

  30. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s almost like Licht knows what he’s doing, and the idiots that just comment on other peoples work don’t actually know as much as they think they do.

  31. Statisticly Insignificant Reader Says:

    May the force be with you Luke.

  32. Statisticly Insignificant Reader Says:

  33. lunchmeat Says:

    Hey rook.
    This is the NFL.
    They ain’t all gonna be that easy.
    There is a reason the Saints pay Cameron Jordan $17.5 million a year.

  34. Lamarcus Says:

    He’s going to have at least 3 holding calls on Sunday

  35. SlyPirate Says:

    Love it.

    Crush them all!

  36. MadMax Says:

    Im loving this guy! He’s def making me STFU about being worried about Left Guard. Keep it up Bud! Im rooting for you…be the best LG we ever had!

  37. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Joe you must find a way to interview this guy weekly…on camera.

  38. ScottyMack Says:

    Sad. There are so many totally ignorant comments on this thread by people who should be ashamed to call themselves Bucs fans. The rookie didn’t grade out significantly worse than any other Bucs lineman other than Wirfs.

    You see morons talking about the Saints better Defensive Ends vs. the Cowboys. What in the world does that have to do with an interior lineman you fools?

    Abd, those who say he graded out as “terrible” are, as usual, overstating the negative. He graded out as “below average”, just like the entire lib

  39. ScottyMack Says:

    Sorry, stupid website ended my comment when I hit enter instead of Tab-Enter …

    Goedeke is no worse than anybody on the Bucs line with the exception of Wirfs when it comes to pass defense. In fact, the Buc who graded out the worst, by far, last week was Donovan Smith. Even Wells was better than him against the pass!

  40. steele Says:

    You can be cocky when you’ve earned it. These guys haven’t. They need to eat a lot of humility for a long time. They’ve proven nothing yet. They’ve looked marginal for an entire preseason. Put that swag deep into the back of the locker and don’t even bother until next season.

  41. 2022 Fire the Cannons Says:

    Just… Show ME

  42. Capt.Tim Says:

    Kick ass Sunday, young man, and Ill eat my slice of humble pie.
    One of us will be humble Monday

  43. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Keep up the attitude young Skywalker, but if you take a dump, get up, face it and go on. Keep the attitude, of wanting to dominate.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  44. David Says:

    Love his mentality!! Without Jensen there, it is needed. He’s got that attitude where he just wants to destroy the person across from him!

  45. adam from ny Says:

    he might be the next guy to take over for jensen, in due time, as the nasty guy – tone setter on the line…

    it’s needed once jensen is no longer here…

    dude just might be that guy…


  46. orlbucfan Says:

    I like his attitude. Micah Parsons and the Dallas D weren’t cupcakes. Bucs O has been bit by Buc Luck (injuries) already. It will be our D vs. the cheatin’ Aints O Sunday. Hope we pull out a win.

  47. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    Love it!! Now figure out how to push this button on the turnstile known as Josh Wells!!

  48. Vegas Says:

    No mention of 60 or 75
    Undrafted versus drafted
