Notes On OTA Practice No. 4

Tuesday, May 30th, 2023

Solid practice.

Yes, Joe was at OTA practice today at One Buc Palace. A bunch of vets decided to take the day after Memorial Day off from the voluntary workout. But the young guns appeared to all be there for underwear football practice. (more…)

“Whenever It Started To Sour, It Like Really Got Sour”

Monday, May 29th, 2023

2021 teammate weighs in.

Joe remains interested in the historic Antonio Brown meltdown of January 2022 as the Bucs rallied to beat the Jets on the road.

Practice Notes From OTA Day 1

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023

So Joe was at OTAs today when the Bucs, (most) veterans and rookies alike, had a voluntary underwear football practice on the sunny fields of One Buc Palace.

Let’s hop to it: (more…)

Bucs Rookie Minicamp Day 1 Happenings

Friday, May 12th, 2023

Bucs OL coach Harold Goodwin helps guard Cody Mauch (69) with his footwork in the first practice of rookie minicamp Friday.

Joe isn’t going to go crazy here with a play-by-play, blow-by-blow account of the Bucs’ first rookie minicamp practice this afternoon. Most of these guys won’t be with the Bucs when training camp kicks off in a little over two months (damn, time flies). (more…)

Dave Canales Embraces The Organized Chaos Of The Offensive Line

Thursday, May 11th, 2023

Dave Canales will enjoy working with this man.

The Bucs don’t know who their left tackle will be. They know about center. But right guard and right tackle? Also unknowns. (more…)

Zero Excuses For Todd Bowles’ Defense

Friday, April 28th, 2023

Bucs coach Todd Bowles.

The Bucs allowed an average of more than 28 points per game in their final six contests last season.

Sad but true. So it’s understandable why general manager Jason Licht handed Todd Bowles a new and exciting toy in the draft last night — instead of help for Bowles’ 18-points-per-game offense. (more…)
