Pewter Report debuted a new season-long weekend feature last season called Fifth Down that showcased some of the Bucs players each week to reveal what they are like off of the football field. We decided to bring it back for 2017 and this week in The Fifth Down we spoke with with guard J.R. Sweezy.

Question: Who has been the toughest player you’ve faced in the NFL or college?

Answer: “Gerald McCoy. I felt that before I got here and now.” 

Question: If stranded on a deserted island with a teammate, who would it be?

Answer: “That’s a tough one. Who is the most resourceful guy? (Leonard Wester raises his hand and says, ‘I know how to kill, I know how to start fires and all the that stuff’). Okay Leonard Wester.”

Question: Who is your celebrity crush?

Answer: “I used to have a crush on Fergie, but she has kind of fallen off. But Fergie.”

Which deceased person would you like to bring back to have dinner with?
“Maybe like King Tut or something. To ask him what the world was like back then.”

Question: What is the worst song that you could possibly get stuck in your head?

Answer: “I have a bunch of them. My daughter is going through the whole kid movie phase so I have a lot of them . Every Frozen song gets stuck in my head.”

Ford’s Garage is a Prime Burger and Craft Beer restaurant. Not only do they have Black Angus but Kobe Beef and Bison. The unique design and vibe is that of a 1920’s service station. Our authentic Ford Model T’s are suspended over the bars and outside the restaurants.  Happy Hour is from 11-7 Monday-Friday, and they offer a premium well pour that is $4.00 all day, everyday. Their premium well consist of Stoli, Bacardi, Tanqueray, Jim Beam and Cuervo.

Ford’s Garage is growing in Florida with 2 restaurants currently in Brandon and Wesley Chapel. The WestChase/Citrus Park area location opened in August and Countryside is scheduled to open in November. Lakeland is projected to open the 1st of January and St.Pete in February of 2018.
