“If He Wasn’t an Athelete” – Albert Haynesworth

Sometimes when I watch athletes, I wonder, “what would that guy be doing if he wasn’t an athlete”? Many of us imagined that we were once going to be the starting pitcher for a Major League team, or the QB for a Super Bowl bound NFL squad, but now most of us file TPS reports. But what if the star athletes we know of now weren’t blessed with a great arm, or a 6’5″ 260lb...

Josh Freeman Looks Up to Albert Haynesworth as a Mentor. Uh-oh.

For some reason, the Tampa Bay Bucs thought it was a good idea to claim Albert Haynesworth off waivers. Bill Belichick could not get Haynesworth in shape or force him to try, but the Bucs figured they’d take a chance on him anyway. No other team in the NFL wanted Fat Albert, as evidenced by [...]

Green Bay Packers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Green Bay Packers look to remain perfect this Sunday as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers have been struggling on offense all season, seeing less offense outputs from both quarterback Josh Freeman and running back LeGarrette Blount.  This could mean another good game for the Packers defense that is coming off a great game Monday against the Minnesota Vikings...

Is Practice The Problem?

Mike Lombardi dedicated an article to the Bucs yesterday, mostly congratulating himself for suggesting in the summer that Raheem Morris take control of the team and make them work harder or the season was going to get out of control.
