Ira has been typing for a living for nearly 50 years. A renowned french fry connoisseur, Ira is heard weekly on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio and on his heralded podcast.

Here we go again, Buc fans, dealing with the fallout from a world-class diva fiasco.

Two defending NFL champions, 18 years apart, undermined by the selfishness of wide receivers with their gaze firmly on the stat sheet rather than on the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

In both cases, it turned into a blood feud between the head case and the head coach. (more…)

I wonder what the late John Madden would have thought about Sunday’s game.

The Hall of Fame coach surely would have been thrilled by another Tom Brady miracle finish. The Hall of Fame coach would have been equally appalled at the lack of respect for the game shown by Antonio Brown. (more…)

I’ve owed a great debt to John Madden for the past decade.

Ed Sabol was one of 15 modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2011 and I was chosen to make the case for the creator of NFL Films. The man was 94 years old and this was his only realistic shot to earn a gold jacket, so there was considerable pressure heading into my first presentation as Tampa Bay’s lone representative on the Selection Committee.

They were only 10 years old the last time the Bucs raised a division banner.

On Sunday, Jordan Whitehead and Ke’Shawn Vaughn looked like grown men on a mission, leading the way for a 32-6 romp over the punchless Panthers that punched Tampa Bay’s ticket to the postseason. (more…)

Buc fans never saw it coming.

In one horrific 3-hour span, the Bucs went from Super Bowl favorites to a battered club with major questions surrounding the weapons at Tom Brady’s disposal.

We know the Saints have Tampa Bay’s number and that number now stands at 4 — as in four key players who went down with significant injuries during a Sunday evening to forget. (more…)

This was supposed to be a coronation, the official end of a 4-run atop the NFC South by the Saints.

New Orleans arrived in Tampa without its head coach and two of the NFL’s premier offensive tackles. Riding a 4-game winning streak, the Bucs were averaging 37.5 points per game at home, unbeaten at Raymond James Stadium.

All signs appeared to point to a joyous evening for the home team, but one sign over in the corner read DETOUR. Before a prime-time audience and thousands of disbelieving fans, only half of the Buc team showed up. (more…)

It’s a question nagging Buc fans from Sarasota to Safety Harbor: can this defense be trusted, especially on the road?

It’s a legitimate concern, heightened by the ineffectiveness of a key player trying to gut it out through injury. Jason Pierre-Paul deserves high marks for toughness, but he turns 33 in a few weeks and that torn rotator cuff has robbed him of his power off the right edge. (more…)
