I really can’t take anyone’s plan seriously when they advocate someone be cut for nothing in return due in part to a minor drug altercation and then turn around and advocate signing a pothead who could star along side Cheech and Chong in one of their movies in the same story.
Martin missed games because he was legitimately injured giving up his…[Read more]

My heart went out to Verner last year when he lost his father andhe managed to stay composed enough to suit up against the Seahawks and intercept one pass and break up another. Probably one of his best games as a Buc.
It’s a shame he didn’t play that way all the time.
As it is, he was just another bust as a highly paid FA who I believe Lovie…[Read more]

Why would anyone want to keep Evan Smith over Joe Hawley. Hawley beat Smith out of his job when he got here and Smith hasn’t been able to get it back since and Smith is being paid a couple more million than Hawley to sit on the bench.
Is Smith’s agent allowed to post out here?

Scubog, I wouldn’t mind if the Bucs took Joe Mixon at 4 or 5 if he is as good as they say he is.
I don’t know if you saw the tape of the incident that sparked all of the cootrovesy about Mixon but I did and I hate to say it, but I can only pray I wouldn’t behave the same way Mixon did.
First the girl pushed Mixon and then she hauled off and…[Read more]

Let me get this right.
There are ports that Cooks posse is a bunch of gangbangers and he likes to drink to much. He also has a history of shoulder injuries
All of this and you think he is worthy of a No. 1 draft pick.
See if these names with similar backgrounds stir any memories.
Aaron Hernandez, gang affiliation

drdneast commented on the post, How Much Money Do The Bucs Really Have To Spend This Offseason? 1 week, 3 days ago
Dbuc63, one of the reasons the Patriots are in such good shape is because Brady is like the 12th highest QB paid in the NFL because this is what he wanted.
He knew if the team paid him what he is worth, which is about twice the amount he is paid, there would be less money to go around to get quality players like Chris Hogan, who was a steal at $3…[Read more]

The same people who want to cut or waive Martin for nothing in return will also be the same ones complaining and screaming when he shows up in New England and rushes for 1500 yards and takes the Patriots to another Super Bowl. Can you imagine the Patriots with a real effective back like Martin in the Patriots backfield. Egads.
And would you take…[Read more]

Here we have another writer trying to get rid of one of our better players without and compensation by coming up with “analytics” I have never heard of.
Give me a break.
Instead he lobbies for a player who has had “fumbling” problems in college and who doesn’t know how to pass block and needs work on catching the ball out of the backfield.

Naplesfan, I agree with your in regards to McDonalld’s presence and the fact the defensive line is better with him than without him.
With that said, I still feel the position needs an upgrade. Both McCoy and McDonald are both nearing 30, the time when most players performance is or has peaked.
I don’t want to get rid of him this year, but I do…[Read more]
For those of you who can remember, it wasn’t the fly paper coverage by our DB’s that made us a defensive juggernaut in the 90;’s till 2004, it was the ferocious and unrelenting play of the front seven that created early or off target throws by the QB that the DB’s turned into TO’s.
Quit trying to build from the back to the front when the game is…[Read more]

I’m getting pretty tired of reading about people concerned about the safety position on this team.
If anyone would look at the second half of the season, they would see all three safeties, Conte, McDougald and Tandy all improving their play.
In fact, I think there was only one game in which the safeties didn’t come up with at least INT and on a…[Read more]

Can’ say I disagree with yur opinion stlbucsfan in regards to our DT’s. The position needs an upgrade..
As far as our safeties our cconcernd I have been saying for some time that the Bucs need to resign both.

I know Conte has gotten some grief and bad notices, especially during the first half of the season, much of which was undeserved due to the scheme Mike Smith employs which sometimes leave safeties in lone coverage on the on the oppositions WR’s. I’m not judging on the rightness of the scheme, but what I do know is QB’s seek out matchups like this…[Read more]

The reason you resign Hawley surferdudes is because he is a better center than Evans is, which is both of their primary position.
Are you going to diminish the quality of one starting position just so you can start a backup who is at best average at two.
Smith is also overpaid as a backup guard/center. He is being paid starters money which he…[Read more]

Macbee, great points in regard to Winston seeking counsel with the greats.
As I am sure you know, Winston did just that last year when he talked to Russell Wiilson who I personally fell is a Top 10 QB.
For him to look to Brady And Brees for further guidance would be outstanding.
Saw a great clip of Brees once doing a drill to help improve his…[Read more]

As for DJ, would love to see the Bucs sign him. Guarantee his contract for 2 years like was done with Ayres and Grimes which gives you two years to groom his replacement.
Love what you wrote about Winston copyjing Brady’s killer style, especially since I wrote the same thing in one of the comment sections on Monday.

Devashar, u might not have gotten an arguement from me in regards to the Bucs being weak at safety during the first half of the season.
However, even then a number of the plays made against them were the result of wrak pressure on the QB due to the unhealthy status of the starters.
But during the second half of the season their INT rate went up…[Read more]

Sorry, but I would much rather have Joe Hawley at 4.5 million than Evan Smith. Smith hasn’t been able to beat him out since he got here.
Tossing $10,5 million at a safety is plain ludicrous, even if his name was Ed Redd or Troy Polamalu. Copy the Panthers blueprint, which they copied from the Bucs and get a killer front four that keeps coming at…[Read more]
