“Somewhere Between Competent And Good Offense”

January 20th, 2024

More hot air from Peter King.

Joe loves how the man who tripled-down on his Bucs-will-suck prediction is being forced to talk about the team in late January.

Yeah, Joe’s talking about NFL super insider Peter King of NBC Sports. Joe is irritated by King. He was welcomed into Bucs general manager Jason Licht’s unique COVID draft war room back in 2020 and seems to give Licht no credit for what the Bucs have accomplished since that time.

Joe hopes Licht blocks King’s cell number and stiffs him on an interview if King comes to Tampa next season on his annual training camp tour. Face it, Mr. Licht, King’s retiring soon anyway and you have no desire to hear King pontificate in your face.

Anyway, King was on Pro Football Talk with the great Mike Florio this week and had a chilly review of the Bucs’ offense. “This is a somewhere between competent and good offense right now,” King said.

Gee thanks, Peter. The Bucs have averaged 24 1/2 points per game over their last six contests. That’s among the top quarter of the NFL.

Like many NFL observers, King seems to be just now figuring out the Bucs have a ton of starters with major playoff experience. He was adamant that the Bucs “will not be intimidated” in the Lions’ crazy-loud dome on Sunday.

King’s stance on all things NFC South is just one more reason Joe is aching for a Bucs victory.

For those wondering, King was on the Falcons’ bandwagon this preseason after picking the slimy Saints to be the No. 1 seed in the NFC for the 2022 season (with Jameis Winston at quarterback).

    His opinion means diddly squat. He hasn’t been right about very much at all this season. Happy retirement, Peter.

  2. Mr. Editor Says:

    I hope that the “Revenge Tour” doesn’t end anytime soon. Yes, it should include Mr. King getting stiffed by Mr. Licht for an interview.

    I wish I could make Peter King money being wrong.

  4. Dave Pear Says:

    At least Peter King is good at being a fat, slovenly oaf. At least his cholesterol is sky high. I’d advise him to jump in the bay next time he visits, but he would generate such a massive tsunami from the water displacement that innocents would be harmed.

    What a pig.

  5. mg Says:

    King is just another pompous azz from New England. Who happens to have a dossier one foot thick on the passenger seat of his car explaining why he is the smartest person in the world.

  6. Crickett Baker Says:

    I can’t stand the guy.

  7. Rocket69 Says:

    He’s from NJ not New England.

  8. Since76 Says:

    His opinions are about as accurate as throwing darts with a blindfold.

  9. BillyBucco Says:

    This guy is borderline useless as a human being.
    If he is married, he probably analyzes his wife the same way.
    She is somewhere between competent and OBEDIENT.

  10. Tom R Says:

    Who is Peter King ?

  11. Fansince76 Says:

    Lets all hope the crappy Panther’s listen to this blow hard idiot and get turned off hiring Canales! We could only be so lucky. King is irrelevant and should retire already! like tomorrow!

  12. ModHairKen Says:

    Peter King is David.

    Both are fetid.

  13. Mike C Says:

    He picked the Bucs for 2 wins, was he talking about playoff wins?

  14. Allen Lofton Says:

    King has been living off his long-ago past performance as an analyst. As he has gotten older, he sits on his lazy fat ass and pontificates uninformed projections on who’s the better team.
    He’s needs to be put out to pasture so that no one will ever have to listen to his bullsh** again.

    Who is Peter King ?

    He is much more Peter than he is King.

  17. Gipper Says:

    Guys like King are professional duds who want to get paid by the word. In my business career I met a lot of self important know it alls that were very sure of themselves. Expression I used to describe these guys was “Often wrong, but never in doubt.”

  18. Esteban85 Says:

    Per Baker: “I don’t really care what he thinks, he’s never played.”

    We should all have the same attitude towards Peter.

  19. Dave Pear Says:

    This thread is pure gold. Unanimous consensus. Peter King is a blowtard.

  20. Lt. Dan Says:

    Hard to believe that the Bucs averaged over 24 points in their six games given the back to back stinkers v the Saints and Panthers. You might want to recheck your math Joseph’s.

  21. Rod Munch Says:

    King is an idiot – but how the offense looks from week to week is all about Baker. If good Baker shows up, everything works great, the run game looks good, the passing game looks good, etc. If bad Baker shows up, nothing looks good and the offense looks broken. Of course if you go and watch the tape, you’ll see guys running wide open, just like they are on good Baker weeks, but he just misses them (which, btw the way, is why I think Canles has done a great job, a much better job than people realize).

    Also before you Baker Bois get your panties in a bunch, it’s OK to not be perfect 100% of the time. Lets just hope we get the good version of Baker on Sunday – but in any case, this game is a bonus, so whatever happens, happens, but hopefully we’re talking about a home game vs the Packers next week at this time.

  22. Gotti-Dog-05-20-84 Says:

    @Lt. Dan
    147 points scored 24.5 points per game

  23. Let ‘em bake Says:

    It’s ok Peter king, some of us knew better… we even won some nice cash betting the Bucs😊

  24. BakerBucs Says:

    No panties wadded here Jacky short for jackass so because we didn’t win every game this season means good Baker bad baker then what do u say about rest of the league QB that remark goes to every QB in the NFL other wise the so called elites lost to the worst record teams this season WTF wud u call them

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    BakerBucs – could you try reposting that in english.

  26. Pete Says:

    Peter King is as competent as the sports reporter who asked Coach Bowles how he was going to prepare for the Detroit weather.

  27. garro Says:

    The real question to me is how in the world this !@#$ has lasted this long.

    Are people who know football still taking this guy seriously? If so …Why?

    Does he have dirt on Roger and the boys?

    Go Bucs!
