Naplesfan commented on the post, Bucs’ Jackson Responds To Monken’s Message 1 day, 20 hours ago
DSJ is a much bigger and smarter man than his team’s OC. He said all that’s needed in response to really stupid remarks.
If this is just to be written off as Monken being Monken as some have suggested, then the Bucs need a new OC. Monken is the last guy to be talking smack about pay for performance when he is the OC who turned a top ten…[Read more]

It’s good that Aguayo likes competition, because that’s what he earned with his poor performance last season.
But here’s a clue, Roberto – Nick Folk isn’t here to make you better … he’s here to take your job. This is one of those “zero sum games” that life sometimes throws at you. NFL teams generally keep only one full time kicker on the…[Read more]

No Scubog, Moncken certainly did NOT “tell it like it is”, and I certainly NOTthink the same thing.

pls pardon my fat fingers on the smart phone keyboard!
No not “everone in the NFL” is thinking DSJ hasn’t produced consistently in his long and extremely successful career. He has led the league in YPR and in no. long receptions virtually every season sinof ce he started, including last season.
It is dumb to effectively charging DSJ with brong a slacker when he has proven just the…[Read more]
Moncken was out of line. If anyone has the right to discuss money vs. performance, it’s Jason Licht, not a third level assistant coach who has yet to do any coaching of this new guy on the roster.
Secondly, calling a guy out in front of the public, a proven veteran with many years of league leading performance proving his bona fides, is just…[Read more]
Naplesfan commented on the post, Bucs Agree To Terms With Veteran QB Fitzpatrick 1 week ago
I disagree, Horse. Fitz has proven he can win a bunch of NFL games, the other backups have not only not won games but havent even taken a snap yet in a game that ciunts.
This is a very big upgrade and about as good as it gets with backup qbs, for a bargain price.
Great move, this is a quarterback who has proven he can win multiple games in the NFL, much more than Mike Glennon or any others on the roster now but for Jameis. He can help Jameis, and if Jameis goes down for a few games all is not lost. And the price is a bargain compared to what the Bucs offered, and what the Bears paid, to Mike…[Read more]

Yup Scubog and drd.
Also, offensive linemen take several years to develop their NFL skills, just like most other position groups. Smith was only a second year player last season.
I seem to recall a lot of self-annointed experts being way down on Mike Evans during and right after his second season in the league, mainly for his dropped passes…[Read more]

Rated by whom? I really don’t give a rat’s ass about the opinion of national media yackers and clueless wannabe analysts who get paid no matter what garbage they put out. Considering that the current coaches delivered the first winning season here since 2010, they have earned the benefit of any doubt.
Again, the people responsible for the…[Read more]
Well, the coches know Donovan Smith better than we fans do – and they are betting their livelihood on his performance. Also, I think too many fans and commenters put way too much stock in the online analytics shops (otherwise known as snake oil salesmen) and their poor ratings of Smith.
As always, the bottom line is the bottom line … for OTs…[Read more]

Thanks Trevor for taking us to school on an important topic. Excellent post!
My non-expert opinion is that it is obvious that Coach Smith is installing a “flexible” defense using his new persinnel. It is also obvious to me that McCoy needs more rest in the first 3 quarters so he can be fresher n the “money quarter”. The Bucs appear to have…[Read more]
Naplesfan commented on the post, Bucs Back To A Top 10 Offense In 2017? 1 week, 3 days ago
As with everything else in life, success requires that one be good AND to a certain extent, lucky. Last season the Bucs were unlucky, leading the league in number of players on IR. If we have better luck this season, we should produce a better result. We also have some better players. Maybe we can do better than top 10 offense. Better still,…[Read more]
Naplesfan commented on the post, SR’s Fab 5: Inside Licht’s Draft Board And The Bucs’ Selection Of Howard 2 weeks ago
There is often good insight on the Bucs here, but the PR writers don’t have a monopoly on it. I’m not a fan of Jones, but quite often good insight and good reporting comes from other folks at the Times, including Rick Stroud and Greg Auman. They were not on the “cut Martin” bandwagon as several of the PR staff were, and were much more correct in…[Read more]
Interesting Fab 5 as usual.
Most interesting is that Jason tells us he and other GMs dont think or act in terms of draft rounds, like the media (and by inference, the fans) do, but just individual players on their board of 100-150 names. Fans tend to get caught up in media analysis and mock drafts that have little basis in reality. I love…[Read more]

Doug Martin got injured. All players want to have stellar years every year, out of pride in themselves and in their profession. I don’t get why so many fans assign cynical values to matters that are beyond the control of the player, like an injury.
Naplesfan commented on the post, All Indications Point To Martin Being A Part Of Bucs’ Backfield In 2017 3 weeks, 3 days ago
The Bucs still have leverage with Doug. His guaranteed money only lasted through this season, which regardless of what shape he’s in, the Bucs can still void that through the end of his 3-week suspension.
If Doug really shows up well through pre-season, such that he looks very promising once his suspension is done, the Bucs can still ask him…[Read more]
It’s not even true, Hank, and RootsCrew (i.e., one injury away from disaster). Our poor running performance last year was not due to a single injury to Doug Martin .. it was due to a combination of many factors, including the loss of Mankins to retirement, the loss of Sweezy to injury, and injuries to Jacquizz Rodgers (who performed very well…[Read more]
What is your point on “because with how the draft went”?
I think most folks, both fans and media people and other GMs who’ve spoken with the media or with our GM, thought our draft went pretty damned good, with at least three “steals” in the persons of OJ Howard, Chris Godwin, and Jeremy McNichols, all drafted considerably later than most…[Read more]
Let me add that the lack of quality in the wide receiver position, outside of Mike Evans who routinely drew double teams, and particularly the lack of speed in our WR corps last year had to have made a negative impact on our running game. With nobody to stretch the field, it just made it way too easy to bring most defenders down to near the line…[Read more]
