      Not that anyone cares, but I am trying to instill as much positive Ju-ju as I can. This draft is…Oh LAWD.I want Manziel....Now that I have the attention of those that care only...I want y'all to know I've been through a lot...Since I've moved to NC, I've been mostly well...but just the other day, we were informed that of the six spots on my mother tested, they are pretty sure she has cancer somewhere....All of this, and she's still upset at me leaving her for this place. She has no one now as long as she refuses to live with me and my dad.What am I doing to combat this you might ask?Prayer, wrestling, and LOTS of Buccaneer football..........simple as that.I won't lie to you, fellas. Ever since I left my former residence upon my abuse, i've been very blessed. I live in a good place. No mortgage, no high bills...lots of land...a 5,700 dollar power wheelchair that arrived yesterday, when it could have been as much as $30,000--I have a lifetime right to the house, a sweet-ass deck that was built just for me and said new chair...life itself is pretty easy. Literally the only thing I have to worry about is my sleeping schedule. I am provided for.And yet....I could be happier. I will just say this...I listened to WhatTheBuc the other night. OldSchool talked about how things were changing. How they contemplated gibing up for so long and resolved that they would not, because this community that the Bucs have meant too much to to many people, and they would find a way to survive. My immediate thought was..."I want to go home."This is a great place, and I'm glad i live here. I even concede that it is my best option...but I am NOT a Carolinian, even though I love the roots it has in my family, Carolina is just not where I WISH i was living this life.Three days from now, my team will once again choose a player in the NFL Draft. I have never been more anxious in my life. I need this to go well. I live vicariously through this team and this state and I make no bones about it. Yeah, it's a football team, screw you, it matters! It always has. It matters now more than ever. I think about my Grandfather, who died of Lung cancer last year just as we had that horrible season.  He loved the Texans since he was from there for many years, but always loved the Bucs too. As I am now graduated, I think about the timing of it all...something was happening.  When we went through that season, my personal life was in pure omni-shambles. I was miserable, The team was miserable, you were all miserable--it was a mess.Now, things are different. As I turn a corner into brighter days in my life, so can this team. Friends, I am convinced things happen for a reason and I believe my life and this team are entwined.I have over two hundred dollars in my savings this year and it grows every few weeks...I wasn't going to announce this until it became reality...but my goal is to go to a home game in the near future. I really feel in my heart that this year IS the year I'm meant to go...but I don't want to say for sure just yet. However, the stars are all aligning in my life to show me that 2014 is going to be a big year. Things are happening. Moving, at last on all aspects...The one thing I need to see now is a good, smart, level-headed draft. Manziel or no, I just want Lovie and this staff to have the best draft for this team humanly possible. It's time. I feel it. It's our time. No more pain, Bucs fans. No more sorrow. No more waiting, no more hoping, no more false promises.It has to be our year. Whether it's just a 10 win season or not,  THIS has to be the year the Buccaneers change and turn a corner. No longer will we wallow in pity and sadness over what misfortunes beset us in the past. We shall lift ourselves up, and say, May 8th is the day we broke the chains of our shortcomings and the cards we have been dealt and began a NEW CHAPTER!!!!"I wish that it might come to pass...not fade like all my dreams" - Rush - 2112, "Soliloquy" If this year is a repeat of last year, and I lose my mother, while all this comes crashing down...well, I'll still be here. However, wanting that to refrain from being the case, I refuse to believe such is in store. Not this year. Not again.On the contrary, the vibes I have felt are all positive. Positive, but uncertain. That's why Thursday, for me, is going to be telling. We could VERY well change things...or they can remain the same.  *I* promise to change myself. I hope that will being the positive energy needed to help the Bucs. I've been trying all week to be nicer and kinder, and to enjoy things more. Hopefully it does some good.As always, we shall be having our annual Draft Day 2014 chat on Thursday. In lieu of PR not having their own draft party, it is my hope to see you all there. Last year was a smash hit, as was FA this year. I fully intend on continuing this tradition as an effort to be of dome use to all of you and in the hopes we can all be closer together. Some of you may recall my reaction when Revis came? I promise to outdo that if the draft goes well THIS year. you all have my word. :)My name is Matt, and I am forever more a BUCS fan. I will NEVER be a panthers fan, no matter what some people may alter in a quote below. You all know the truth. The truth is in this post and nowhere else. BUCS!!! This is the final stretch, gentleman. Share here what draft day and this team means to you. Let this thread be the refuge from all the smokescreens and talking heads. Let us come here to break bread, chum up, and get HYPE!!!!Monday...Tuesday....Wendsday.....Draft Day.GO BUCS!!!!

      I want Manziel.

      So you are finally listening to Java's advice.  Smart move.  Let's hope the Bucs are as smart on draft day.

      I would prefer JFF to Carr.  I dont want a QB in the 1st, but figure I may as well warm up to the idea of Carr so that way I can be pleasantly surprised with ANYONE else.

      Theyre not going to take a guy who has never taken a snap under center, and doesnt have an ideal pocket passing game. Better prep yourself now so you dont get real upset when they pass on him.

      JFF actually has pretty good numbers when throwing from the pocket.

      You're the one who needs to prepare yourself. You're so adamant against Manziel you're making up reasons why he's not worthy of the #7 pick.

      Beatles: I am really excited about the upcoming season.  8-8 would be progress, which is all I am looking for at this point.  I came to the dark side and I am very optimistic going forward.  The NFL has angered by extending the date out so far.  It is anti-climatic…how many weeks can you repeat the same thing over and over.  Stupid.

      I agree. I’m going nuts just trying to keep waiting. Once the pick is made and we either get Manziel or we don’y, i’m going to be very excited for the rest of the draft!

      I didn't Beatles...there are sometimes bigger things in life than football.  I'm glad you can stay positive through all of that...it takes a strong individual to stand tall amidst all that adversity.  I will keep your mother in my thoughts.& of course...Go BUCS!!!

      Im actually not adamant against it at all. What im saying and have been saying is that how he'll do in the NFL is a total unkown and that he never played anything that resembled what he'll be asked to do in a controlled offensive system like the one Tedford will deploy. There for I confidently say that he wont be the pick, and that he is not a sure shot to be a great QB at all. That may sound like Im against taking him but thats not what it is, im just stating the truth. Yes I would rather have Bridgewater or look next year for a QB. If i was apart of the staff that would be what I push for. However at the same time Im actually a fan of Manziel, just talking about the situation realistically. Hopefully that makes sense.

      Because he's a good passer. I know this and have mentioned how I love his accuracy plenty of times in the past. The point is that he doesnt play the part of a pocket passer. When he senses any sort of heat from the sides he way more often than not, looks to bolt as opposed to stepping up into the pocket to extend the play. This is after getting a rediculous amount of time to throw the ball, and always in shotgun about 5 or more yards off the line. What happens when he is asked to take the snap from under center, drop back  and go through a progression? What happens when he's asked to do that and he doesnt have nearly the time he had in college? Can he even effectively seen over the line when he's not getting the ball snapped to him 5 yards away from the offense. And even if we do accept more of his style where he rewrites the script of most of the plays, how long can he last in the NFL being his size and taking hits from NFL DEs and LBs? I mean this is all legit concerns everyone should have, and its painting me as a manziel hater right now when Im really not. Im just being a realist.

      However much it takes to get the best seats i can. :)I want to remind people that it personally offends me very much this "Panthers fan" meme. Especially when it's done by the same two people. It really, seriously makes me upset. I care about my Bucs too much for that and it hurts me that they resort to it in a thread about my mother and cancer. I ask you nicely. It's not funny, it's not nice and it's classless. I am a Bucs fan and that is the end of the matter. I am not taking this issue lightly.
