Joe understands a lot of Bucs fans, including those who read this here site, love to chatter about distractions.

Well, here’s a doozy for you.

An arrest warrant has been issued by Texas authorities for Cowboys rookie linebacker Sam Williams in regard to a car wreck last year in which he was the driver.

The Plano Police Department told TMZ they don’t plan to hunt down Williams as they have been in touch with his reps and apparently Williams, an outside linebacker/pass rusher, has agreed to turn himself in.

Williams, a rookie from Ole Miss, has four sacks, 10 tackles for loss and nine quarterback hits playing in 15 games this season.

Joe understands many fans like to blow up distractions to be wildly more important than what they are. So Joe will play along here.

If a linebacker who has had something of an impact on a defense that the Bucs will face in the wild card round, hopefully this will allow the Dallas defense to crumble.

Williams played a grand total of 17 snaps against the Bucs in the season-opener but didn’t register any statistic. Williams did have a sack, a quarterback hit and two tackles for loss last week against the Commandos.

    For me the biggest distraction for the Bucs this season has been the plays being called for the offense/play caller. Fire Leftwich today!!!

    Go Bucs

  3. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Umm. Hold on a minute. Damn fly. What were we talking about?

  4. Buc4evr Says:

    Wish the Plano police were looking for Leftwich.

  5. NEfan Says:

    I thought the story would be about BA popping his head out again and saying something stupid. I really wish the Atlanta game was the BA induction game. That would have been hilarious.

  6. Redeemer Says:

    Doubt it has much if any impact on the game. The Dallas defense has been crumbling anyway.

    Hey NE
    Why don’t you crawl back under your SLIMY ROCK! You’re a REAL PIECE OF WORTHLESS WORK… Freaking Jag off!
    Apparently the ENTIRE town of New England wants nothing to do with you and neither do we. Maybe if you weren’t such a disrespectful putts. Nah. Doesn’t matter. Kick Rocks!

  8. NEfan Says:

    Anonymous, it’s obvious you chose picking oranges & lemons over school. New England consists of 6 states moron.

  9. Redeemer Says:

    Anonymous, you leave my friend NE alone. New England isn’t a Town btw, it’s a region of the country, stretching from Maine to Rhode Island. You go pound sand.

  10. Woodenman Says:

    NEfan I don’t blame you if liked a team that sucked as bad as patriots I would jump on bandwagon of another team also

  11. #99 the Big fella Says:

    NEfan actually started out on this site with good comments. You all started picking on everything he said. So now he is negative about everything and sticking up for himself.. NEfan don’t engage and eventually the haters will go away

  12. NEfan Says:

    Woodenman@ true they do suck, they have the same issue Bucs have their OC sucks, Matt Patricia a defensive coach. Ya, they ended up 8-9 that’s bad, OH WAIT?

  13. Craig Says:

    I thought it would be about FTX falling, taking 1.1 million of Brady’s shares with it ($45 million).

    It also might have taken Giselle ( who wanted out) and is spawning a couple of class action suits against Brady for his commercials (all in)

  14. Darin Says:

    Infomeplease. Agree nothing’s more of a distraction I’m sure than leftwichs’ game plan, if he even has one. The staff is gona lose this game for them.

  15. SlyPirate Says:

    Any Cowboys bad news is good news. Keep it coming.

  16. D-Rok Says:

    It’s only a distraction for the other team, which can only help our team.

    GO BUCS!!!

  17. BillyBucco Says:

    I wish any Police Department was looking for Leftwich.
    Every time I hear good news the reality that he can help crumble the best of games sets in.

  18. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Anonymous- many of your comments are harsh if memory serves. Perhaps take it down a notch. All friends here.

  19. theghost Says:

    i prefer the distraction of the day

  20. Bucsfan13 Says:

    I’m with Joe about how so-called distractions are overrated. Fans moaned and groaned about Brady’s off field issues and how it was some distraction to the him and team. I find it more projecting by fans. Brady is built different from other players. The guy knows how to block out noise. I was so happy to hear Lavonte today tell the real truth about the team guy Brady is with his teammates. Lavonte doesn’t BS so his word is good. Lavonte has been one of my favorite Buc since he joined the team. I was so overjoyed when he won a SB.

    Lavonte said Tom showed up happy everyday. Remember when the national media and those bitter Boston media guys claimed Brady was so unhappy? He was still super competitive and never changed as a guy. He remained the same guy he has known for three years. You hear that JBF posters? Tom is still locked in and to say that Brady of all people had checked out is laughable.

    @NEfan/ actually known as “NANCY”

    What’s OBVIOUS Nancy is that you got NOTHING. SO, the ENTIRE TOWN OF NEW ENGLAND ran you from the proud town of New England. Otherwise your creepy self would be on the websites there. RIGHT! And you’re just desperately PATHETIC here on a “Tampa Bay FLORIDA” website where you’re “cheap shots” are weak, self embarrassing, and most of all Pathetic.
    So I’ve just gotta ask you Nancy,, why are you so intimidated by the incredibly Strong and Amazing Coach Bruce Arians? I doubt you have a wife but does she talk about him a lot and ask why you can’t be Much More like him? Is that what it is? In fact, I’ve only seen one other that so many people ask to have someone removed as much as they have you.

    How “Embarrassing” for you. I truly feel bad for you. NOT! Again You’re a small example and unwanted in your “supposed” own town. BUT… You don’t even live there do you. You’re just some little Nancy in the corner. AND NOW You got a problem with the Citrus business? And with workers that pick oranges or lemons?
    If I worked in that industry I’d be QUITE PROUD OF IT! Any of us that “may have” a job in the service industry seems to be beneath you. Everybody KNOWS that ANYBODY who makes the type of comments like You Do is actually a very insecure small nobody. And everybody knows that if nasty comments is all you got for retort, well let’s face it… EVERYBODY knows it’s a sign of “low intelligence”. Just because someone is breaking their back to make your sad life better, well mam, that doesn’t make them beneath your sad little self. Watched you write down MANY TIMES nasty jabs concerning elitist work related comments. And since you’re so quick with that response and simple can’t come up with something more specific or creative, (well honestly it’s Standard for the Low IQ). You simply lack ingenuity. You can’t help it though. You’ve been that way since birth.

    Lastly, Your SURE SOUND LIKE someone whom might be a non approver of people whom let’s say might not have your SPECIFIC back ground…? Hmmmm.

    And that’s Standard for the low as well! Well this SEASON TICKET HOLDER doesn’t appreciate where you’re going with your insults. If you wouldn’t have thrown my wining coach under the bus with your Nancy girl insults well I wouldn’t have looked your way like ALL THE OTHERS THAT WANT YOU GONE! But you and your low IQ deserve what’s coming. You take shots at my team and Now You’re My Beotch. When I decide to pop on, if I see your sorry New England arse making sharty comments about MY TEAM, I’m going get ya. You are no longer NE anything besides an embarrassment to them! YOU ARE NANCY! You got that T Maxx?

  23. ANONYMOUS Says:

    Well 74 maybe you haven’t noticed the underlying and under handed shots that this guy keeps taking at “our team”? Maybe you’re alright with this cat fr I m “supposedly” New England. Now if you don’t see it I understand. In the end I’m drawing a line in the sand. It’s some nasty jabs and nasty deserves nasty. Also, the Constant cheap shots from the trite as well. Yeah I made a stand there to. I like coming and reading Joe Bucs Fan. I’m simply sick of the either constant puking on trying to feel good about our chances to guys who apparently have no problem calling the head coach whom I personally think turned us into more than the “losingist team in the history of sports” to a product team I’m finally after 20 years can be proud of right under the bus every time they get a chance.

    I’m just standing up for a change for something I and everyone else can get behind. That’s what it’s about.

    This is great! Yay!!! Go Bucs.

    (for Reacharound87)

  26. Goatfarmer Says:

    Annie Agar is a much more pleasant distraction.

    Hope the Cowboys will go out before the game, for old times sake. Is Mons Venus still open?

  27. Miller5252 Says:

    The Bucs match up really good with Dallas. The only thing that can hurt the Bucs is Dallas’s pass rush vs our O line. If Lefty plays this right, and keep Lenny in to blow up Parsons a few more times, the Bucs should blow out the Cowgirls. Perfect match up for the Bucs and when they blow out the Cowgirls, Dallas head coach gets canned for Payton and the NFC starts worrying about Brady, his first losing season and his chance to win it all…… again! Still fire Bowles and let Brady pick the coach.

  28. Rod Munch Says:

    I thought this article was going to be about Tom Brady’s new girlfriend — I just hope she doesn’t wear him out before the game.

  29. NEfan Says:

    Rod, the bad for the knees is a wives tale.
