    So tired of the “winning the division thing”. Just think about it. Four teams in a division. Eight divisions. Thirty two teams. It isn’t like a conference championship. On top of that being better than three other weak teams, and getting run in the first round of the playoffs. And barely being above 500 before the playoffs. Sorry man…that is more about generating revenue with multiple teams in the playoffs, that some huge accomplishments. That is part of the reason why the talent spread is so huge between “divisions”. Because it is such a small set of teams.

    Get over Drew dumping that rich prom queen, she could be an absolute dead fish in the sack, and a total B out of it. Guy has his own money and has no problem pulling chicks that look the same and probably have WAY less attitude. You ALWAYS bring up that you can’t believe he dumped her, I have explained, please stop, it is at the point of nauseum.

    I can’t believe you guys even brought up Geno Smith as a possibility. There is no way they can scrape up $30 million a year to pay ANYONE! This constant floating of expensive QBs is ludicrous. It just isn’t happening.

  4. Goatfarmer Says:

    Wait, Sasquirk — that sounds negative. You should have faith that the Bucs can manage the cap and get a veteran QB, all while executing your three-pronged strategy of home-run draft, Canaries turns out to be a genius, and Licht finds great vets for a bargain price. Doesn’t finding a free agent QB fit into category three?

  5. sasquatch Says:


    You continue to misinterpret what I have to say.

    I’ve never suggested magic was going to be performed, especially when it comes to the cap. I’m a realist about what we can do in terms of personnel. It’s not negative to accept there are consequences to how they’ve managed the cap the last few years.

    The difference is I’m realistic about constraints, but I’m not taking giant sh!t on everything all the time. I’ve adjusted my expectations and I’m still curious and open minded about how it turns out.

    I know this may be beyond your comprehension, but I don’t spend my time predicting outcomes, positive or negative. I’m interested in the process.

  6. Goatfarmer Says:

    Oh it’s misinterpretation. The old “I was taken out of context” excuse.

    Maybe you should run for political office, those are the skills necessary to succeed in that game, and lord knows, we could use that wonderful anti-negativity of yours to bolster a sad lot of choices.

  7. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Calm down guys. Just a bit, anyway. We are not discusssing life-or-death situations here. We are all just looking at our Bucs from different angles.

    I was advocating a rebuild (but not a total tear down and start over) for our Bucs not long ago. Now I have accepted that the franchise appears to be heading in other directions.

    I doubt Geno Smith will be coming here. I expect someone like JacobyBrissett or Lamar Jackson. We might even be retaining Blaine Gabbert for all I know.

    @mark2001 – You do realize that about 70% of ALL NFL teams have never won a Super Bowl or even been to one ? Winning the Division and getting into the playoffs is the first step, after that is when anything can happen. How many times have we seen the underdog go into the playoffs and win it all or at least get to the Super Bowl ? It happens all the time. Go Bucs

    Hey love the podcast, Ira. Hope you get to feeling better after this round with COVID. Thanks for your work
    Something caught my ear though that I had to stop for to ask the question, “when you mentioned what Canales did for Geno last year and believe this is reasoning for Todd to hire him, I can’t help but wonder what he did with the QB’s of his full time their in Seattle. 12-13 years as QB coach; is last year the only good year or is it the best year out of other good years?
