ChatGPT Selects Most Underrated Bucs Players

May 22nd, 2023

Makes the list.

So last week, Joe had a light-hearted article about what ChatGPT thinks are the most overrated Bucs players.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) vehicle that is all the rage among techies. To hear them, ChatGPT and its cousins will force humanity out of work in a matter of months and create widespread chaos and societal upheaval if not a SkyNet-like takeover by robots and soulless software programs like we have seen in the Terminator movie and TV series.

Per commenters on last week’s ChatGPT article, most fans believe ChatGPT missed the mark on some players.

So what does ChatGPT think of underrated Bucs? Here is the response Joe received:

As an AI language model, I don’t have real-time information or opinions. However, as of my last knowledge update in September 2021, I can mention a few players from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have been considered underrated in the past. Please note that this list may not reflect the current state of the team or recent developments:

Lavonte David (Linebacker): Despite consistently putting up impressive numbers and being one of the league’s top linebackers, Lavonte David has often been overlooked when it comes to recognition and accolades.

Ali Marpet (Guard): Marpet has been a reliable and consistent presence on the Buccaneers’ offensive line. While not always in the spotlight, he has been an essential part of their success.

Carlton Davis (Cornerback): Davis has shown significant improvement in his coverage skills over the years and has emerged as a reliable cornerback for the Buccaneers. He has made impactful plays but might not receive as much attention as some other defensive stars.

Shaquil Barrett (Edge Rusher): Although Barrett gained recognition for his performance in the 2019 season, he may still be underrated when compared to other prominent edge rushers in the league. He has consistently generated pressure on quarterbacks and has been a valuable asset for the Buccaneers’ defense.

Ryan Jensen (Center): Jensen may not always receive the same level of attention as other offensive linemen, but he has been a key player in the Buccaneers’ offensive success. Known for his physicality and toughness, he has provided stability in the center position.

It’s worth noting that player opinions and perceptions can change over time, and there might be other players on the Buccaneers’ roster who have become underrated or underappreciated since my knowledge cutoff in September 2021.

Joe isn’t sure Ryan Jensen or Shaq Barrett is underrated. Perhaps Shaq, but not by much.

Jensen? He’s widely regarded as one of the NFL’s top centers. Or at least he was prior to having his knee destroyed.

Lavonte David? No doubt. Ali Marpet? Not really. Carlton Davis? Yeah, Joe will buy that.

Joe was sort of expecting ChatGPT to possibly mention Gerald McCoy.

    I don’t care what AI thinks of our players.

  2. Rod Munch Says:

    I added in the words ‘all-time’ and made it do it twice to get past the generic answers… it gave me, mostly, a more interesting list…


    Hardy Nickerson – Nickerson was a standout linebacker for the Buccaneers in the 1990s. He was a fierce defender and a leader on the field, yet his accomplishments often went unnoticed due to the team’s overall struggles during that era.

    Mark Carrier – Carrier was a talented wide receiver who played for the Buccaneers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Despite consistently putting up solid numbers, he played during a time when the team’s passing game was overshadowed by their strong defense.

    Dave Moore – Moore was a reliable tight end who spent the majority of his career with the Buccaneers. He was a dependable blocker and a sure-handed receiver, but his contributions often went unnoticed due to the lack of attention given to the tight end position.

    Paul Gruber – Gruber was a durable and consistent offensive tackle for the Buccaneers from 1988 to 1999. He anchored the offensive line and provided stability, but his accomplishments were often overlooked due to the team’s lack of success during that period.

    Michael Pittman – Pittman was a hard-nosed running back who played a significant role in the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl-winning season in 2002. Despite his contributions, he was often overshadowed by other star players on the team’s dominant defense.


    Hardy, absolutely. It was his signing that really turned the team around, although it tooks years – but he was the glue at the beginning of that all-time great defense.

    Mark Carrier – again, absolutely. After Mike Evans, he’s the next up on the all-time Bucs WR depth chart right now. Godwin will pass him by at some point, but if you want to compare Godwin to anyone from the Bucs history, it’s Carrier. Both are just professional, non-flashy, ultra-productive WRs. Carrier, for those that don’t know, had, when you adjust for passing inflation, the single best season receiving in Bucs history and played a long time in the NFL.

    Dave Moore? No. Solid player, but Ron Hall was a much much better play that very few people remember. Lots of other guys could go in this slot, including other TEs.

    Paul Gruber – yep, he’s the all-time underrated Bucs player. Should have been like an 8-time pro-bowler, but playing on those bad Bucs teams, no one outside of Tampa knew how good he was.

    Pittman? Really, LOL! That idiot running into the back of his offensive lineman on every play makes him underrated? Give me a break. Huge miss.

    The player I would have listed is Brian Kelly. Him getting injured in 2003, during that MNF game vs the Colts, changed the course of history for the Bucs, who were playing just as well as they were in 2002 up until that point. But the domino effect caused by his injury, and losing Dexter Jackson in FA and moving Dwight Smith to safety, and having no depth at corner, it tanked the team and made the defense merely very very good, instead of all-time great.

    Don’t forget Winston he was underrated for opposing teams. He deff helped out other teams more than his own team mr 30 ints

    Steer clear of AI.

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    AI is the future, ladies. Those who think they can ignore it, are going to be the first to be replaced.

    The robots that AI needs to build more robots are already being built. So no, your job, no matter what it is, isn’t safe.

    Get on the AI train now, or be on the welfare train shortly.

    Just some friendly advice.

  6. Defense Rules Says:

    Rod Munch … ‘AI is the future, ladies.’

    My past training as an engineer & love of computers tells me that you’re correct Rod, BUT … there’s a LOT to be cautious about as we move to incorporate AI into our every-day lives. There’s an excellent new book (2022) entitled ‘The Work of the Future: Building Better Jobs in an Age of Intelligent Machines’ written by 3 MIT professors (Autor, Mindell & Reynolds) that wonderfully analyzes how AI’s incorporation might proceed. There’s a useful encapsulation of their study in an article entitled ‘Why the Future of AI is the Future of Work’ that I’m sure your AI sources can find (so can Google).

    As a career military officer & pilot (past tense now), AI admittedly scares the he11 out of me. It has the potential IMO to be far more dangerous than nuclear, chemical or biological (NBC) weapons. The same AI that can predict the most underrated Bucs players can be ‘refocused’ to represent a dire threat to our freedom. Ronnie Reagan’s ‘trust but verify’ could easily become virtually impossible in an AI world filled with bad actors.

  13. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    The problem with AI is not the computers, or the programming, or the answers ot the AI itself. It will be the people who put too much faith in it, who will not question it and who demand that YOU have to do what the AI program says. In others, the problem will be the same tomorrow as it is today just accelerated.

  14. Buc50 Says:


    DARPA is already playing around with autonomous fighter jets. We are doing it whether we like it or not. We can’t let China, Russia and who knows get the jump on us. China has already stated that they want to be the AI Superpower of the world.

  15. D-Rok Says:

    When I was an Army Medic in late 80’s / early 90’s, I was given a variety of vehicles to drive as an Ambulance, including a Willy’s Jeep, a Hummvee, an Armored Personnel Carrier, and even briefly an M1A1 Abrams tank. Of all those vehicles, only the Abrams was highly computerized, the rest were purely mechanical.

    This article, and comments by DR and others got me thinking: What if Chinese chips are in our main battle tanks, and somehow AI could take over, or take command of these computerized military vehicles? (Also, all our fighters and aircraft).

    Why, the mere thought of any foreign entity being able to hack our military chips and units scares the heck outta me. That’s why AI scares me – if it’s used maliciously, we could be in a world of hurt.

  16. David Says:

    There’s 1 million different opinions about AI right now but there is one thing that is absolutely not in doubt… Over the next 20 years the world is going to change dramatically because of it.
    It will be capable of replacing 70% of the jobs on this planet, it’s why so many politicians are talking about universal incomes now.
    Personally, I’m with Elon Musk, the whole thing needs to be paused for a year so the entire planet can get on the same page and regulate it. Unfortunately that will not happen.
    If you listen to the guy running Google right now, it’s scary. He is full steam ahead, damn the consequences.

  17. sasquatch Says:

    AI is the end of civilization.

    There’s a reason that even the pioneers that have brought us to this point have stopped, quit, put on the brakes and said we need to consider what we’re doing here. There needs to be regulation, and you can’t put machines in charge, no matter how efficient that may be.

  18. Geno711 Says:

    So, knowing that site uses Sept 2021 as a cut off of its knowledge base, I changed Joe’s question to:

    Who do you think are the Tampa Bay Bucs most underrated players heading into the 2021 season. Please consider the age and potential growth over the next 2 to 3 years.

    And answer:

    As an AI language model, I don’t have personal opinions. However, I can provide some analysis based on available information up until my last knowledge update in September 2021.

    Heading into the 2021 season, there are a few players on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who could be considered underrated in terms of their potential growth over the next 2 to 3 years.

    Here are a couple of candidates:

    1. Ronald Jones II (Running Back): Jones showed promise in the 2020 season, rushing for over 1,000 yards. However, he has yet to receive widespread recognition and attention. He possesses good speed and elusiveness, and if he continues to develop and refine his skills, he could become a key contributor in the Buccaneers’ offense in the coming years.

    2. Scotty Miller (Wide Receiver): Miller had a solid 2020 season, making some key plays and demonstrating his deep-threat ability. Despite his limited playing time, he showcased his speed and chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady. With continued development and more opportunities, Miller could emerge as a reliable target for Brady, especially given his potential growth in terms of route running and overall versatility.

    3. Tyler Johnson (Wide Receiver): Johnson was a rookie in the 2020 season and showcased his potential in limited playing time. He displayed good hands, route-running skills, and the ability to make contested catches. With more experience and the opportunity to develop further, Johnson has the potential to become a valuable asset in the Buccaneers’ receiving corps.

  19. gp Says:

    At present, gov’t contracts are very meticulous about even the source of the base materials being used to make the individual parts of our war machines. Chips are no exception. About the only exception of any significance is titanium, of which we have very few options to obtain it.
    That being said, perfection is a very hard thing to achieve.

  20. gp Says:

    Everything must be sourced and manufactured here in the USA

  21. D-Rok Says:


    Yep, I remember a bill that passed during the Trump administration banning all Chinese chipsets from critical infrastructure and military hardware. That was a good start, and I hope ALL critical chips are now made in USA just for the reasons/potential I outlined above.

    The reason this bill (an EO, perhaps) passed is that at the time, we DID have lots of Chinese chips in military hardware and satellites.

    Let’s HOPE they got all those nasty chips out! I mean, think of how awful it would be if the CCP or others managed to hack/disrupt our GPS systems alone?

    I realize none of this is directly related to all things Bucs, but it’s a prescient and important topic…hey, Joe brought up the AI topic, and it’s not my site, I just comment on it, LOL.

  22. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    gp Says:
    “Everything must be sourced and manufactured here in the USA.”

    There are stories all over the place about alloys and computer chips that are supposed ot be, by law, sourced in the United States, being found to have come from Chinese manufacturers and assembled into F-35s. Our leaders just don’t care. There are no consequences.

  23. Brandon Says:

    I’ve never heard of a player getting his knee destroyed and then returning the same season without even having surgery.

  24. gp Says:

    Hunter’s Crack Pipe
    Can’t say were I get my info, but, aside from titanium, as I mentioned, I would be very skeptical of those “stories”.

  25. Fred McNeil Says:

    It is highly likely that any chipset made in China will have a back door. That’s why they don’t want Huawei products in our 5G network.
    That’s probably the main reason China wants to take over Taiwan too. I’ve always suspected that the only way Taiwan could ever hope to avoid war would be to allow the CCP to influence their chip making.
    As for AI, it just does what it’s programmed to do. It’s not sentient. It will replace a lot of jobs. At some point the powers that be will decide they don’t need so many people anymore.

  26. gp Says:

    At some point the powers that be will decide they don’t need so many people anymore.
    At some point?!?

  27. Fred McNeil Says:

    I’d always thought titanium was fairly common. It just takes a lot of energy to refine. It’s the ninth most abundant element in Earths crust. I’ll have to read about it.

  28. Fred McNeil Says:

    @GP, us peons still have our uses even if it’s only as voters. Those of us who vote incorrectly will be dealt with first.

  29. D-Rok Says:


    In the last few months, I’ve read some troubling reports where true AI programs, using massive mainframes and quantum computing, have scared the crud out of their human programmers, and some of them became violent and vowed to wipe out humanity by any means necessary. Several programs were urgently shut down because they indeed became “sentient.” Who knows if these reports are true or not, but if true, it’s troubling, to say the least.

    Let’s hope cool heads prevail and these programs are vetted/researched more carefully. Apparently, some AI’s coupled with quantum, have achieved self-thinking or sentient status. SkyNet is no longer a joke, apparently.

  30. Rod Munch Says:

    Pickgrin Says:
    Apparently you’ve never seen The Terminator….


    First, movies aren’t real, and regardless of whatever sci-fi movie you want to quote, you’re not going to stop the AI takeover.

    So you might as well figure out how you can take advantage of AI to make your life easier. The world will be a completely different place in the next 2 years or so, and probably a lot lot sooner than that.

    People who are prepared will have the best chance to make it through the transition of the economy. With that said, there’s no reason for a decline in lifestyle (on a country wide level, individuals will certainly be affected). The idea that we can increase productivity, probably dramatically, with maybe 5% of the human labor we have now, should mean everyone is much much better off. But getting to that point will be difficult.

  31. Rod Munch Says:

    D-Rok – I’ve read all that stuff, and those stories are very misleading. AI as it currently stands is nothing but a chatbot, it can not think on its own, it can’t scheme, it can’t do anything other than answer questions based on what it thinks you want to hear. Also anyone that quotes AI, you have to take it with a grain of salt, since the conversations build on each other. So if you’re talking biblical end times with the AI, then later in the conversation ask it about it’s plans for humanity, it’s going to answer in the style of questions that were previously asked. A lot of people ‘quoting’ AI are just taking the last few points in a conversation and posting them without the full context. If you don’t believe me, just go ask ChatGPT questions fresh, new, conversations, and you’ll get ultra generic, boring answers.

    Since the current AI is just a chatbot, it can’t be sentient. What people are talking about, what they’re worried about, is AGI, but that doesn’t exist, and we’re still likely many years, or decades, from it existing. In any case, whenever it does exist, it’s not going to turn us into batteries like in the Matrix – and if I’m wrong, it won’t matter since we’ll all be dead.

    Also quantum computing doesn’t currently exist. Companies will claim they have “quantum” computers, and it’s as real as Adidas saying that chick with a huge bulge in their bikini bottom is a beautiful woman. They can call it whatever they want, but it’s still just a man in a bikini. Same with quantum computing, it’s still at a research level with zero working examples.

    This is very very fast moving news, and like always, the media just picks up on the most sensational stuff. However, I don’t think people are misleading on purpose, I just think they watch too many movies and don’t really understand the tech. BUT, there’s plenty of room for debate, and who knows, I might be wrong, and the robots wipe us out next week. But in any case, there is literally nothing I can do about it, so I won’t be lynching my Roomba just to be safe.

  32. Geno711 Says:

    I try to approach these things as two steps forward and a step to the side to review what is happening.

    I agree Munch that the ones that are prepared to use ChatGPT and Bard in some fashion will be better off. Those saying proceed with caution are needed as well and some oversight will be needed going forward.

    But complete oversight or hopes that we can shut off this spicket of technological water will just not happen. Listen to the podcasts both for and against this fast-moving technology.

    In my use of the technology since January, I have found that it gives you bad information about 2-5 percent of the time.

    Yet, it has been valuable in my retirement life. I can be an older dude that easily gets annoyed at people who don’t see things the same way as I do. As secretary/communicator for a charitable organization, I find that I can get annoyed about the tone of an email. Sometimes, my 1st reaction can be to want to snipe back sarcastically in a reply email. ChatGPT has corrected “Snippy” emails in a matter of 10 seconds. No more putting off that email until I am in a better mood. I can put out a nice thought out reply immediately while still getting points across that I think need to be made.

    A kinder, gentler me in emails is a good thing.

  34. D-Rok Says:


    You bring up a lot of good points, and I can see your reasoning. A few thoughts/comments:
    1) In regards to Revelation/End Times type of stuff, AI is never mentioned as being the cause of that. But I don’t think it’s a stretch to think AI in the future would play a role in a global economy leading to one’s dependence on a single world gov and currency. I’m not saying the current Chatbot IS actual AI, it’s not, as you alluded to. I’m talking about programs that civilians have no access to, nor probably ever will.

    2) Quantum processors, by some reports, are not that far off. How far is anyone’s guess, but when it gets here, it will greatly change the Earth, IMHO. Some researchers theorize that work currently being done with sub-atomic particles are making Q technology possible in the future.

    3) What happened to the days of my youth when a news report, a story was real? It’s so hard to fathom what is real these days by reports and stories, and so I vet “reports” with peer-reviewed studies when possible before I take any stock in anything important.

    4) I don’t have a Roomba anymore. My dog didn’t trust it, so I don’t trust it, LOL. 🙂

    Good discussion, bro – appreciate your thoughts.

    “Can’t say were I get my info, but, aside from titanium, as I mentioned, I would be very skeptical of those “stories”.”

    First, there really is no “sourced and manufactured only in the US.” There are several western nations such as the UK, who have been under contract since the beginning to provide parts for the F-35 program. In 2019, it was discovered that a circuit board manufactured in England for the program was being done by a company under Chinese ownership.

    Whatever affect Trump’s executive orders had, it’s hard to say. The DOD and Justice Department openly flaunted their disregard for many of his orders. We still have troops in Syria, for example. So who is really in charge at the White House?

    Government, currency, and also a single world religion. The men who put those prophesies to paper had no concepts of our current technologies, so what they foretold might not translate well in their language. In the present, people like Claus Swaub and Yuval Noah Harari have spoken openly about AI gods, and the masses worshipping AI in the future.

    In prophecy, the antichrist is described as an entity that cannot be harmed by physical attacks, which makes me think of the possibility of it being a holographic projection. Just an idea of mine, but there have been enough leaks for us to know that they are hiding some crazy holographic technology from us.

  38. Fred McNeil Says:

    Quantum computing is still in its infancy. It’s crazy difficult to work with. Quantum memory is usually just a few bytes at best. And much of it only works at close to zero degrees kelvin.

  39. Fred McNeil Says:

    Funny thing is: to observe a quantum state superposition is to change it. A superposition is both one and zero at the same time. I have no earthly idea how they deal with that.

  40. Rod Munch Says:

    Fred McNeil – yeah, I’m totally with you on ‘qubits’, it sounds made up and while I literally have a degree in computer science, I don’t get it. How can something have both one and zero states at the same time – AND even if that’s true, how in the world is that useful? It’s way over my head. But big companies who claim we have quantum computing now are just flat out lying, they’re just using the world as a way to talk about super-parrell processing, which is remarkable, but traditional computing. It’s a very interesting field, and I do believe they’ll figure it out soon, but I still don’t get it.

  41. Rod Munch Says:

    D-Rok – I will say in defense of people writing bad news or reporting stuff that is sensational, the news cycle on AI is moving so quickly, it’s really hard to keep track of what is legit and what isn’t – and stuff that wasn’t real, can be real tomorrow.

    In any case, even if AGI isn’t right around the corner, the chatbots we have today are still going to cause massive disruptions with the economy in the near future. Basically anyone who’s job is to research, or do customer support, etc – basically 90% of them won’t be needed by this time next year. Writers and teachers are next, they can all be replaced (opinion writers like Joe will still have a place – reporters who get the original facts will also be safe for now). Also, while they are chatbots right now, they can do things already like write their own code – and that skill is literally improving by the week – and the AI can respond to things like hacks much faster than humans, so that means programmers and cybersecurity people are next to go. Then once the current AI can program things itself, it can just provide plans to automated factories, which mostly already exist, meaning it can create things such as robots – which can in turn go out and mine more resources, build more robots, which eventually start taking away jobs like construction, etc (go see the amazing Boston Dynamics construction bots video).

    Also, while that transition above seems like it will take a long time, it really won’t. AI just multiples its pace, so you could have that entire transition above take place in just a few years. Maybe it takes longer, but certainly by 2030, it will be a completely different world than today.

  42. Rod Munch Says:

    Geno711 – Yeah, ChatGPT can just make stuff up. The best example, I asked it to tell me the top 10 songs on the day I was born, for some reason, it can’t do it, it will give me a top 10 list that mostly seems right, but isn’t right, and someone casually looking at it, would think it’s correct.

    But using it to write letters is great though, in particular compliant letters. Just tell it you want it to sound like something a lawyer would right, you want it to be demanding and firm, but still polite, and the results are instant and amazing.

    You can also use it to rewrite stuff to make you sound smarter, dumber, more fun, etc. Personally I like to use it to write poems about how much Doodoochoose loves Chris Meyers.

  43. D-Rok Says:


    Is it theoretically possible to combine 0 and 1? And what would you get – 0.5? Isn’t that a workable and devisable number?

    If computer algorithms can adapt to an average, the sky is the limit.

  44. Rod Munch Says:

    D-Rok – People say 0 and 1 generically, but it’s actually on or off states – and quantum computing says a bit can be on AND off at the same time.

    I’ve followed tech and computers my entire life, and I’ve read all about quantum computing, but it just doesn’t make any sense to me. But, if they make it work, it will allow computers to do incredible computations that would currently take years, decades, even hundreds of years in just seconds. It would offer incredible breakthroughs in the field of health, science, power technologies, etc – and make all known internet security basically useless.

  45. Pickgrin Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    “movies aren’t real….you’re not going to stop the AI takeover.”

    So how far of a stretch is it to envision some entity (probably gov) in the near future pairing an advanced Boston Dynamics robot with AI “intelligence” and then arming the thing with all manor of weapons???

    Seems pretty likely to me unless we take steps now to ensure that moving forward – AI is subject to strict rules that keep all manor of things like that from happening.

    Pickgrin – What I’m talking about is AI deciding to do things on its own, that’s just not how it works. Also, who makes those rules? Who is actually checking every line of code to make sure the rules are in place? Is China and Russia going to play by our rules?

    In any case, if we get to Artificial General Intelligence, then all the sci-fi movie fantasies can start, but we don’t have that, and likely won’t have it for a long time. Even then, I still don’t think it’s going to suddenly decide to kill all humans, that’s all movie stuff.

  50. Rod Munch Says:

    Not yet – but you see how incredibly fast what we already know about and have interaction with is progressing.

    Now project that 20 years down the road.

    Surely you are aware that Govt/military/blackops ‘technology’ tends to run a good 20 years ahead of what we citizens are allowed to know about much less interact with.

    The “technology” is not the problem. The problem is the sick minds and sick hearts that will inevitably gain “control” over said technology and use it for F’ed up, selfish purposes. And then perhaps lose ‘control’ of something like AI because it advances so far beyond what we can conceive it might be capable of…..

    Why would AI need weapons of any sort.
    As gullible as we are, and divided into our specific groups, it would take very little for a “chatbot” to convince us to kill each other for it.

    A couple of notes…
    I didn’t say the “chatbot” made the decision, notice the quotes””.
    I did note that the world populace is gullible, easily led into the most ridiculous choices, patterns, actions, etc.

    You did hit on the actual immediate danger when noting that “chatbot” can be manipulated to get the answers you want, and is good at “writing” letters/notes.
    Rarely has a technology passed through without being used in some nefarious way by some person either in power or craving power.
    Using it’s ability to mimic, or create “deep fakes”, such a person can do a lot of harm, don’t you think?
