If Bucs Offer Blaine Gabbert…

February 8th, 2023

BSPN: Blaine Gabbert in 2023.

Call it a mock NFL boardroom.

Here’s a really neat way to guess what various teams’ movers and shakers are thinking about how to solve their quarterback problems.

This isn’t just a mock draft — what are there more of, podcasts or mock drafts? — it’s a mock meeting of the minds in NFL front offices.

BSPN is doing a quarterback roundtable of sorts where they try to figure out what general managers will offer what contracts to which quarterbacks, and which quarterbacks will be drafted by these quarterback-needy teams.

For the Bucs, per Dan Graziano and Jenna Laine, first thing is first. Free agency begins next month. And for the Bucs, after they try and fail to land Derek Carr, the Bucs settle on Blaine Gabbert as your Bucs’ starting quarterback for 2023.

GABBERT’S DECISION: Accept the Buccaneers’ offer. An honest shot at a starting job is more than Gabbert could ask for at this point in his career, and he’s glad the organization wants him back. Down the road, maybe it means more money, too.

Bucs coach Todd Bowles loves Gabbert, as did Bowles’ predecessor, Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians.

Remember last winter at the combine, Arians, in his final weeks as Bucs coach, told anyone with a microphone or a phone — which was many thousands of reporters — that he was happy to go to war with Gabbert as his field general.

And of course, Bowles had loving words for Gabbert in his season-ending press conference last month.

With the Bucs in a salary cap crunch, Gabbert won’t cost a lot because the Bucs are likely the only chance he has to start for a team in the fall.

  1. Joe in Michigan Says:

    This would be as exciting as when Mike Glennon or Josh McCown were the starters.

  2. Crickett Baker Says:

    I think Gabbert with Trask as backup are exactly the right QBs the Bucs need to just start with this year. Not that my thoughts are better than anyone else’s, but both had to learn a lot from Tom, and both are cap friendly.

  3. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Winston. At least we would know we could score TDs.

  4. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Gabbert shouldn’t be handed the starting job. He hasn’t earned that right. Gabbert’s history as a starting QB isn’t good, but I’m willing to let him compete for the job with Trask and another veteran. Blaine used to have a big advantage because he played in BA’s system for a long time. That won’t be the case if he comes back. Blaine was a perfect QB for BA’s high risk offense. He has a cannon and can sling it, but he’s also mistake prone. I think he’ll be like a little like Fitz. I think we’ll put up points, but the turnovers might kill us. Blaine also has the respect of the locker room. They have confidence in him

  5. Beej Says:

    Using Gabbert allows us to sign a few people we couldn’t otherwise, and there’s no reason to believe guys like Carr would be much more effective. Everyone thought Tannehill was a bust until the starter for the Titans went down

  6. HC Grover Says:

    Grover been predicting this for long time.

  7. Hodad Says:

    Have to wonder what would last year have been like if Tom never came back, and Arains never left? What would our record have been with Arains, Gabbert last year? Would the team have played harder knowing they didn’t have Brady to depend on? We know Arains is a better HC then Bowles, couldn’t he have won at least 8 games with Gabbert? We’d have a lot more answers this year if Tom never came back last. Right now Gabbert seems like as good a bridge QB that’s out there. Who knows maybe Trask surprises.

  8. DungyDance Says:

    So Kaaron Rodgers needs to go on an “isolation retreat” in order to decide whether he plays next year. An “isolation retreat” ? Wtf.

    Keep that guy as far away from our team as possible.

  9. Beej Says:

    You don’t hear much warm stuff from Rogers’ teammates directed his way

  10. Fansince76 Says:


  11. Todd Says:

    Hire Monkman and draft Stetson in the mid-rounds. Problem solved.

  12. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    Trask’s history and coaches say he takes multiple years to learn an offense. Glazer history says coaches that have 2 consecutive losing seasons get fired. Most Buc fans don’t like/believe in Bowles, myself included however he isn’t dumb. There is no way in hell he’s going to put his job on the line for a QB that couldn’t get a system down in three years that’s now playing in a new Offense.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We simply need to go on a cap diet……Gabbert/Trask help to get that done.

  14. YucsBall Says:

    Fire Jenna

  15. ClwJB Says:

    How uninspiring this would be….25 Int’s coming our way with good ole Gabby at the helm

  16. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Gabbert starting would practically ensure we see Trask play by week 3-4.

  17. Allbuccedup Says:

    Starting Gabbert or Trask would ensure a top five draft pick.

  18. Dooley Says:

    With Brady, Leftwich, & Christensen what value to this team does Blaine Gabbert have? and how valuable could he really be? Some are against pursuing Carr when Blaine Gabbert is the tall can of Natural Ice of QBs, affordable, might get the job done, but will probably get’ya smashed quickly. Gabbert is basically the ground underneath the totem poll. Man, I’m hoping the Glazers and Licht swing at someone better

  19. Simeon97 Says:

    Train wreck next year

  20. ModHairKen Says:

    Cure the cap woes. Gabbert is fine. So is Trask.

    Stop robbing the future to win now. They did that. It worked. TB got the Bucs #2 and himself #7. But there is now a cap problem, the price to pay.

    The way to get out of cap hell is to stop spending money. Don’t bring in Carr. Give the reins to Gabbert.

  21. Doughboy Says:

    If they go with Gabbert Bowles will never be a head coach again !

  22. NYbucsfan Says:

    That’s why he should be fired as a head coach. He loves Gabbert! He is a backup and probably not a very good one. I bet no one kicks his door in when free agency begins. How many shots has Gabbert had in his career?

  23. ocala Says:

    When Gabbert was a starting QB in the league he had inept coaching and if he is the Bucs starter next year he will be in the same boat he was in before.

    We all want the Bucs to win, but sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward. Take all the cap hits this year, trade the high priced players that are 30 or older for future draft capital and accept that this team will be one of the worst in the league next year.
    In 2024 the Bucs can get one of the top QB’s in a strong QB draft and have a brand new offensive minded coach.

  24. AbucAway Says:

    He’s not the hero we want, but the hero we need… To help get out of cap hell.

  25. Infomeplease Says:

    Don’t expect much from this season with Bowles as HC and BG as qb. 4 to 6 wins is as good as it’ll get!! LFG????? No I mean it!! You know Miami and Jacksonville are looking better and better!!

  26. Buc4evr Says:

    I don’t see the Bucs being able to afford Carr. Sadly he may go to the slimy saints. Probably Mayfield or Bridgett would be more in line. Gabbert is a backup and if the Bucs start him they are admitting they are in rebuild mode because they are not winning with him. Gabbert as a starter will insure that Bowles is gone after next season, which may not be a bad thing…..

  27. Marine Buc Says:

    This seems like the most logical choice given the Bucs current situation.

    Either bring in a cheap free agent like Baker or Brissett and let them compete…

    We really don’t have the cap to sign Rodgers, Jackson or Carr.

    We could have Gabbert, Trask and Baker for @ $10M total.

  28. JD Still Says:

    We need to get an OC first , Brian Johnson the Eagles QBCoach would solve a lot of problems , he is a great coach , he turned Hurts who was projected as nothing more than a backup into a Super Bowl starter, He turned Minshue a backup at Jacksonville into a starter and he was Trask’s Quarterback coach at Florida when Trask was a walk-on and turned him into not only a starter but a Heismann finalist , and they say he could bring Minshue with him from Philly. There you have it , a proven coach two outstanding young Quarterbacks at a cheap price that he is familiar with and that are familiar with him , to compete for the stater job at a bargain price ! Go ahead and try to find a better deal anywhere!

  29. John Sinclear Says:

    Hope the Bucs include a shave and a haircut in Gabbert’s offer!

  30. miken Says:

    Gabbert plus trask is better than the glennon/leftwich/mckown/ jw rookie years and maybe the best we can do considering the cap situation and coaching. 5-12 and draft the best qb in 2024 , take the full brady cap hit, try to trade for a star later. Time to turn over this roster

  31. SKBucsFan Says:

    I realize numbers can be scary to some. But I wonder if those people pushing for a $40 million QB understand how budgeting works? Salaries are limited with a cap. It’s called a salary cap. Going over costs huge penalties. All 32 GMs have to stay at or under it. We are currently $55 million over. Which means to sign a high end qb we will be $95 million over. How many good players can you keep when you are $95 million over?

  32. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    In order to improve the team’s performance, it is suggested to adopt the successful 49ers’ model and allocate significant resources towards enhancing the defense and fortifying the offensive line.

    This comprehensive approach involves leveraging the expertise and strengths of Head Coach Todd Bowles and is designed to build a solid foundation for the team. By fortifying the defense and enhancing the offensive line, the team will be better equipped to compete and succeed in future games.

    The goal is to create a cohesive, high-performing unit that can effectively execute on both sides of the field.

    Jarrett Stidham
    PJ Walker

    Herdon Hooker

    Trask (For 4th or 5th RD Pk)

    Potential Line Up
    Jarrett Stidaham | PJ Walker | Herdon Hooker

  33. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Follow that up by hiring the following

    Greg Roman – Senior Offensive Assistant & tight ends coach
    Bobby Slowik – Offensive Coordinator
    James Cregg – Assistant Offensive Line Coach

  34. Jack Clark Says:

    I agree with the rest of the commenters . We need to hire an OC first before we make any decisions about quarterbacks

  35. Capece is Kaput Says:

    I used to think Gabbert deserved a shot to see what he can do if our offense but that was in the days of Arians and risk-it biscuit. Now we will have a new coordinator and Arians continues to sail off into the sunset. So all that goes out the window. That why this is such a mess and not worth even debating yet until they hire someone. Gabs might not even fit whatever this guy wants to do (nor Trask) and we don’t even know what type of guy this new coordinator might be. They need to hire somebody, then let the player speculation begin.

  36. Marine Buc Says:


    I have been calling for Greg Roman as a possible OC in Tampa…

    You want ball control and TOP? Greg Roman
    You want a dominating run game? Greg Roman
    You want an offense designed for a mobile QB? Greg Roman

    I would also take a look at Tyler Huntley at QB instead of J. Stidham…

    Drafting Hooker with a mid round pick sounds good to me.

    QB room would be Huntley/PJ Walker/Hooker.

    Then we need a few real running backs and we are off and running…

  37. Marine Buc Says:

    @ LUV

    But overall I like your plan and agree it will be easier/cheaper to find “mobile” QBs than it will be trying to find/afford solid pocket passing QBs.

    I really hope we don’t waste any draft picks or money on D. Carr…

    That would be a huge mistake IMO.

  38. BashingBucs2520 Says:

    Friendly reminder that Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson won Superbowls.

  39. Dooley Says:


    Friendly reminder that Football isn’t baseball and QB “wins” are a nothing stat because unlike Baseball, there are way more moving parts in football that also play on the outcome of the game. Also you picked the 2 QBs that won SBs with historically legendary defenses which also played a bigger role than either of those individuals QBs. Cut it out

  40. Tye Says:

    EITHER many are not interested in being the OC for the Bucs (who could blame them) OR the Bucs are waiting to pluck a coach from one of the Super Bowl teams…

    I read recently Bieniemy contract with the Chief is up at seasons end…
    I pray he is not why the Bucs are waiting on OC… we don’t have a Andy Reid or Maholmes to mask his flaws for success!

  41. ocala Says:

    Hooker would be a great choice for the Bucs if they get him outside of the first round. Before he was injured, he was projected as a late first round pick (primarily because of his age).
    He can assimilate to the league his first year and hit the ground running in 2024.

  42. HC Grover Says:

    Cheapest and best option is Gabbert, Trask, and a late round pick.

  43. THOMAS PFALZ Says:

    With Bowles as HC it will be a lost season anyway so why not start Trask and see how it goes. Keep Gabbert or even Ryan as backups. Next by all means get rid of lazy ass Smith. How he lasted this long is beyond me. Of course we are talking about the Bucs. Also consider any player over 30 expendable. I agree the Bucs should trade back not up. So many holes to fill. One priority is signing Dean. He’s the CB on the roster.

  44. Mike Johnson Says:

    Bring in Brissett and left Gabbert and Trask compete. Brissett will not break the bank. And he can play. Let the best man win.

  45. Since76 Says:

    If you go with Gabbert its because your saving cap space and tanking for the draft pick. Plain and simple. He is not very good with what we’ve seen here. If he’s the starter let another lost decade begin.

  46. Rod Munch Says:

    Gabbert is the type of guy you have at QB if you’re trying to discourage people from buying season tickets because you want to tank attendance in order to move the team to London.

  47. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @ Marine Buc

    Thank you for your input. I definitely agree with your point on mobile QBs being easier and cheaper to find, and I also agree that the D. Carr route would be a huge mistake.

    Note: Tyler Huntley is a pending restricted free agent. That means the Ravens must submit a qualifying offer (tender) before March 15 at 4 p.m. or he hits the open market. Solid option though

  48. Rod Munch Says:

    As a teen, I was there for all the big battles at QB…

    Steve Young vs Vinny Testaverde
    Vinny Testaverde vs Steve DeBerg
    Vinny Testaverde vs Chris Chandler
    Steve DeBerg vs Craig Erickson
    Craig Erickson vs Casey Weldon

    If I was rating those battles, I’d have Trask vs Gabbert right there with Erickson vs Weldon.

  49. Rod Munch Says:

    Well, Testaverde vs Young didn’t happen in camp, but it would have happened on message boards if those things had existed at the time.

  50. Bucs56 Says:

    You are not really going with Gabbert by bringing him back. You are bringing him back to compete with Trask or a darnold. Gabbert deal likely have low guarantee money as a back up with incentives if he starts. But under no scenario does he come in as a starter. He has done nothing to earn that.

  51. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @ Marine Buc

    As a long-time supporter of Greg Roman, I have been consistently advocating for his capabilities as an offensive coordinator since his departure from the San Francisco 49ers. With a keen eye for detail and a wealth of experience, Roman has a well-deserved reputation for delivering dominant run games and offenses that are perfectly tailored to mobile quarterbacks.

    Whether it’s through his innovative read-option scheme or his ability to maximize the strengths of his players, Roman has proven time and again that he is one of the most talented offensive coordinators in the NFL. For these reasons and more, I believe that the appeal of Greg Roman as an OC is undeniable and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to build a dynamic, successful offense.

    QB’s he’s worked with:
    * Alex Smith (San Francisco 49ers)
    * Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers)
    * Tyrod Taylor (Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns)
    * Andrew Luck (Stanford University)
    * Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens)
    * Tyler Huntley

  52. Rod Munch Says:

    Also, people are greatly underestimating how much QBs are going to cost.

    Gabbert played on the cheap, even as a backup he was cheap. If he’s going to be competing for the top job, I don’t see him signing another cheap deal. In fact I don’t see anyone, except the absolute scrubs, signing a bottom of the barrel deal when they think they’re going to be a starter.

    I think Gabbert would, at least, want $5m with a ton of incentives. Mayfield would probably be double that, $10m. Name you other backup QB who have played, they’re going to fall between those guys.

    Just go with Trask, draft someone late (or in the 1st if there’s anyone left – just not the 2nd or 3rd or 4th), and sign some UDFA, and lets see what we have.

    Part of the deal of running it back in 2021 was mortgaging your cap future and knowing that once Brady left, you’re going into a rebuild. I had no problem with that, and I still have no problem with that. Yes, it’s possible, if you can get another top tier QB that maybe you stretch this out another year – but Carr isn’t a top tier QB, there’s only two of those, Rodgers and Lamar, and the Bucs aren’t getting either.

  53. Rod Munch Says:

    People really don’t understand QB contracts and think you can get everyone for cheap.

    However, let’s look back to last year. The cap-challenged Saints gave Jameis Winston a 2-year, $28-million deal, with $21-million guaranteed.

    That’s the type of deal Mayfield will get, Hunley will get, etc.

    It doesn’t matter if you have Mayfield, Trask or Hunley at QB, the team isn’t winning the SB. Just clean up the cap in 2023 and be ready to go in 2024.

  54. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    One of the key turning points in Greg Roman’s career was his work with Alex Smith as the OC of the San Francisco 49ers

  55. miken Says:

    All of ROD MUNCH post is right on.

  56. HC Grover Says:

    Munch shoots….Munch scores

  57. BrianBucs Says:

    I would be fine with Gabbert/Trask.
    Get the cap corrected and bring in some good young players.
    Then draft your future franchise QB in ’24 where there is a lot of QB talent.
    Don’t screw up the future by putting a band-aid on things for next season

  58. Buc1987 Says:

    Gabbert and Trask battle it out.

    That’s all I got for ya!

    Oh and draft a QB next draft where there will be lots of them.

  59. HC Grover Says:

    This info says play Trask let Gabbert fly away and hire Coach Robert Weiner from Plant High School as OC. Get a walk on QB cheap. Promote the whole practice squad and go skorched earth with Coach Bozo.

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    Or what Brian said.lol 🙂

  61. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    In 2014, anticipation was high for the 2015 NFL Draft as it was touted as having the best quarterback class in recent history. This class was widely considered to be one of the most talented and deepest in recent memory, with two standout Heisman Trophy winners, Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, expected to have successful careers in the NFL.

    However, as it turned out, the real talent was arguably in the 2014 NFL Draft class

    2nd Round Pick Derek Carr
    2nd Round Pick Jimmy Garoppolo

  62. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    1st Pick Andrew Luck
    2nd Pick Robert Griffin
    8th Pick Ryan Tannehill

    3rd Round Pick: Russell Wilson (Super Bowl Winner)
    3rd Round Pick: Nick Foles (Super Bowl Winner)
    4th Round Pick: Kirk Cousins (Statically the 2nd Best QB in Class)

  63. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Trask and Daniel Jones. Let them fight it out!

  64. Slacker Says:

    Absolutely no reason to play Gabbert over Trask. Next season is already over anyways, might as well see what Trask looks like.

  65. SlyPirate Says:


    Assuming the Bucs don’t get a top tier QB to replace TB12, Gabbert is a cheaper option to get through 1-2 years. Gabbert knows the WR speed, route breaks, etc.

  66. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    SlyPirate Says

    It’s not a bad idea to make him the backup, but not if it holds back Trask, who we need to get playing time, unless we sign or draft another QB.

  67. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Who here will buy tickets in 2023 if the team is tanking?

  68. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai Says:
    February 8th, 2023 at 1:04 pm
    Trask and Daniel Jones.


    Jones? LOL!

    Also that dummy would want huge money.

    No thanks. I’ll take my shot with Trask or Gabbert or Carr or Hunley, etc, over giving Jones $30m/year for the next 4 years.

  69. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Who here will buy tickets in 2023 if the team is tanking?


    Recall that the Bucs forced season ticket buyers to buy seats for 2022 and 2023 last year. Also the NFL makes their money off TV, so they don’t really care that much about ticket sales, not compared to TV money anyways.

    @ LUV

    I wonder what the reason Roman was fired in Baltimore…

    Was it the relationship with L. Jackson or the Head Coach?

  73. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @ Marine Buc

    Sounds like the HC

  74. Sheen Says:

    Doesn’t matter who the QB ends up being…seems obvious that no legit OC mind wants to come here since all magic has evaporated and Bowles will be done next year unless we opt for full re-build.

  75. Marine Buc Says:

    @ Rod

    Why do you expect Gabbert to make double the money he has been making for the past 5 seasons?

    Do you really believe other teams will be clamoring for his sevices?

    There is an open market for QBs just like every other position… If he wants more than $2.5M just throw in a few incentives for TDs/Completions/wins/playoffs.

    We could still keep his base salary at $2.5M but make him earn the rest.

    Plus – the incentive bonuses won’t be paid until 2024…

    I agree with the rest of your take.

  76. Marine Buc Says:

    @ LUV

    That’s odd – Baltimore had the 3rd best rushing offense in the NFL in 2022.

    You never know what is going on behind closed doors… It’s not the first time Greg Roman has been canned after having a solid offense.

    I would still take be satisfied if he was hired in Tampa.

  78. Goatfarmer Says:

    Goobert would be like the second coming of JaMiss, only with all of the turnovers and few of the touchdowns.

    Kyle’s Trashk is like Mike Glennon Jr only without the arm strength.



    Medication time. Toad.

  79. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @ Marine Bucs

    Over the years, I’ve questioned why myself

    Despite facing numerous challenges with rampant injuries, Baltimore faced immense pressure to deliver a winning season. Unfortunately, this led the head coach to search for a convenient target to blame.

  80. Oneilbuc Says:

    This is a loser fan base lol 🤣😆 !! Some of yall rather Gabbert than Trask is just stupid. Gabbert has proven that he sucks and Trask just might be a good quarterback we don’t know. [Bullsh!t! Joe never missed a practice in training camp. Anyone who watched practices would have — and did say — Gabbert was the clear No. 2 QB. Ira never said any such thing about Gabbert. Quit trying to lie. — Joe]. Trask was not giving a chance to compete with Gabbert that’s why Ira said he might be good we don’t know. [Trask had every chance in the world in training camp to overtake Gabbert. Trask dropped the ball. — Joe]

  81. Rod Munch Says:

    Marine Buc – Last offseason Gabbert said he wanted to be paid fairly, then took the lowball backup deal that the Bucs gave him. Veteran backups generally make a lot more than what Gabbert is making, closer to $5m, with better backups making a lot more. This year, if Gabbert came back, he’s coming back to compete for the starting job, and I just don’t see him taking a low-ball deal to get that job. He’s made a lot of money in his career, and I get the feeling he’ll retire rather than take another low-ball offer.

    Which is fine with me, since I don’t want him back at any price.

    I could certainly be wrong, we’ll see how it plays out, but I think, in general, people are underestimating what QBs are going to cost. Speaking of which, in 2024, when the cap explodes, people are going to be going nuts when good backups are getting $12-15m/year, and even scrubs are getting $5m-7m a year.

  82. Marine Buc Says:



  83. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well…look’s like I might take a year off from football!

  84. Buc4evr Says:

    Trask is not the answer. The guy still has not learned the offense after two years. Gabbert is about the only option, which will insure a very high draft pick after next season. I don’t see how the Bucs can hold the team together with the number of FAs, lack of a real starter at QB and the Cap situation. Should be an interesting off season.

  85. surferbuc Says:

    “Trask had every chance in the world in training camp to overtake Gabbert. Trask dropped the ball.”

    Are you for real? Trask never took a single snap with the first team PLUS the quarterback coach, Clyde Christensen, himself said BEFORE SUMMER PRACTICES STARTED that Trask would NOT be competing with Gabbert. That’s NO chance.

    “Trask is not the answer. The guy still has not learned the offense after two years.”

    You have no idea what he’s learned or not learned. Another worthless opinion based on pure bias.

  87. mark2001 Says:

    Fan76…don’t worry about OC. I’m sure there is some guy out there in his late 30’s or 40’s holding a clipboard somewhere, that has never developed a game plan or called plays, that will sign with us and set the league on fire.

  88. Oneilbuc Says:

    First of all I agree with what Ira has been saying about giving him a chance because he just might be good. But I do know one person on that podcast is pushing a anti Kyle Trask narrative saying he couldn’t beat out Gabbert knowing that it was never a competition from the start . That guy can’t get over the fact that Brady is done and he sucked last year and that same guy we all know who he is refuse to hold Brady accountable for his bad play on the field. So he made BL the scapegoat for Brady’s bad play. And that’s why he hope Kyle Trask failed. He’s been lieing to us the whole time about Trask and now he’s mad because he can’t fool me with his narratives lol 🤣🤣 .

  89. Capt.Tim Says:

    Hiring an OC, when we dont have a starting QB- is going to be very difficult.
    OCs like to go where they already know who is playing QB.
    I realize alot of people dont think about what an OC wants , before he signs
    No one wants to be responsible for coaching a train wreck.
    I think our GM and the Glazers are having a hard time finding a OC

    Tampa will watch Carr go to the Saints and wonder why the Saints start winning divisions again. Im not entirely sold on Carr but he is rhe best option right now unless you are picking in the top 10. If its not Carr then I agree, Gabbert should be the QB. Guys like Mayfield have been rumored but I dont see how much more he would offer over Gabbert. Keep in mind, Brad Johnson and Rich Gannon, Kurt Warner were late bloomers. Gabbert could surpruse after sitting behind Brady the past couple of years

    After hearing Cowherd’s interview with The 🐐 and the non-committal about 100% him retiring, team Glazer will in no way blow this team up. If Gabbert gets to be the Starter in September and their O Line and RB’s are in good shape, i can see Brady coming back for one last shot. I’m not buying the ‘retired for good’ talk…

    If Gabbert was anything other than a backup QB he wouldn’t even be with the bucs. Get real this is just a “cap” move. Gabbert as starter equals….LOSERS, might as well rebuild, and if that was the case Bowles should have been let go. Keeping Gabbert & Bowles puts Bucs behind another year. Bowles out means new revolving door of coaches and new schemes/philosophy with new head coach.

  93. Ken P Says:

    Wow, Is everybody blind? 8-9 record is blamed on the OC. Why dont you start with the HEAD COACH. Bowles is dumber than a bag of rocks. Hes a puppet with someone else pulling the strings. No INTEGRITY, SPEECHLESS, EMOTIONLESS AND WITH OUT DOUBT, NO BALLS. The Bucs are never going to win with him coaching. Wait and see.
