Jabar Gaffney

Michael Clayton




Funny thing about him.. I actually predicted in my original mock draft from that year that he would be the Bucs pick. I never waivered from it, but on draft day when Steven Jackson was available I was PISSED they took Clayton instead. I thought Jackson was going to be gone before the Bucs picked.

Devin Thomas so far.....I wanted the Bucs to take him so badly. I was ready to explode when we took Talib over him, but it looks as if Allen made the right move there.


A guy who isn't living up to his potential that I knew wasn't going to is Gaines Adams. Never liked him predraft, thought he was overrated. When we drafted him I spent the next hour just praying we were trading him to Detroit for Calvin Johnson, when it was obivious he was a Buc, I started to get pissed. I like the guy, but was never a fan of his ability. Too one dimensional, IMO.

If he was one dimensional he'd be ok but he's not even good at that one dimension.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

He's got great speed for a DE, he dominated in college and that plus a weak DL class is why he was so high on the draft board. He doesn't have moves to get around LTs, he relies purely on his speed to try and get around people. Hopefully he pulls his finger out of his butt under Bates and plays like a top 5 pick. But I'm not seeing it, I never wanted him there to begin with.

The dimension he excels at may be smoking pot.   At least that's the rumor from the guys who work at the Marriott he was staying at.

Dre Moore was one of my favorite prospects from last years draft. I pray he finds a way to come around.

For a non-Buc Ashley Lelie was amazing in college. I thought he would be a good pro.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

definetly Zemaitis and Stovall.  I loved Jerome Mathis coming out of college.  Gaines tops the list.

"there are no medals here for who can stay at the office the longest," said Jagodzinski. "I'm not into that. The guys that brag about working till 2 in the morning, in my opinion, they're just not smart enough. "

Good one on Moore. You're right. I was a big fan of him before the draft and he was the guy I was most excited about after the draft. Too bad he's fat and lazy.

The guy had 6.5 sacks and a critical TD return for a TD VERUS the Bears, and he harrased the passer (pressure), on a DT starved team, and Gaines is a bust?

Maybe considering his draft status.  Drafted a few spots later, and he is a bargain.

Why no talk about that 20 year old DT from Houston?  I even forgot his name he has been such a nobody...

6.5 sacks is anything special? The guy is a subpar DE who relies soley on his speed. It's not working out for him in the pros, hopefully he turns it around. But so far he's done nothing to make me believe I was wrong about him like Aqib Talib has.
