    I suspect only Martin represents the Pewter Pirates.

    Agree, scubog!

    On another note, I looked up how much dead cap money the Bucs have next year and it is under 1 mill.
    I’m wondering how good the Panthers Josh Norman would look in pewter.

    I wish I gave a crap about the Pro Bowl. I guess I liked it more when it was AFC v NFC and was played after the SB. It’s been a sham for so long, it seems no one cares. Including the NFL. Looking forward to our last 2 games and the draft. Go Bucs!

    I nominate Stocker for pro bowl best blocking TE in league, Martin doesn’t get those yds without Stocker, behind every 1,000 yd rusher there is an outstanding blocking TE, hilarious

    1. 5.1


      Well except for Seattle, Minn, St Louis, Oakland, Atlanta etc lol

      Damn Jon, I almost shot Mt. Dew out my nose laughing while reading that. Your persistence is so respectable.

      1. 5.2.1


        CG- Hearing fans stick up for Stocker a TE who has 50 yds receiving and less than 100 yds in two yrs and two measly TD’s in fours yrs keeps me up at night, I demand better results from our players, I will not settle for mediocrity, its a losers mentality



          Hey I love your fire Jon, now if only most of our team had that same drive, we’d be in great shape!

    Mankins Pro bowl? Maybe 5 yrs ago yes, he has gotten beat several times this yr and had some bad penalties, I think Marpet had a better yr all around at guard

    Martin; that’s it.

    Your right jongruden. I remember how well Dougie did last year with bad blocking and a bad OC.
    What was it, 500 yards.
    Jongruden, you strike me as the type of person who plays golf at Pebble Beach and pays his employees minimum wage so you can afford to play there.
    A real Georgie Patton you are.

    Mccoy and Martin. Seems right. Hopefully David gets in as alternate, but he struggled 1st half of year.

    Props to PR and Mark Cook! They nailed it! Good to see some Bucs represented, even David and Mankins as Alternates. It’s gives the up and comers something to shoot for. Carolina has 10. We will have more one day I’m sure. Congrats fellas, have some pineapple on me!!
