Tuesday is a day off for Tampa Bay Buccaneers players, but rest assured head coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik will be working overtime to address the teams latest injury issue. On an afternoon the Buc defense delivered its best performance of the season Sunday, the unit would ultimately endure its biggest big blow of the year: the loss of defensive end and 2011 first-round pick Adrian Clayborn for the season with a right knee injury. Head coach Greg Schiano confirmed the news on Monday, a day after his defense kept the clamps on Dallas quarterback Tony Romo in a 16-10 loss to the Cowboys. Adrian is going to have surgery. Hes done for the season, Schiano said. Its probably going to be a couple of weeks before it happens. Its certainly an unfortunate for him and for the team. I dont know exactly what it is. Its one of those three-letter deals. Clayborn was hurt during the fourth quarter, but the extent of his injury wasnt known until Monday in Tampa: at least o...

Da’Quan Bowers hoping to make an impact for the Bucs

With defensive end Adrian Clayborn done for the season, Da’Quan Bowers is hoping to help the Buccaneers out once he comes off the PUP list after week six. “There is still a long ways to go, I’m still about four weeks away,” said Bowers, who was placed on the physically unable to perform list a month ago. “Right now, I’m just taking it day by day. It’s up to coach (Greg...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers' top ranked rush defense has tough test against Washington Redskins

Yes, you read the headline correctly. It is not a typo. Through three games this season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the league's best run defense. The same defense that ranked dead last in the NFL last season by allowing a franchise-worst 156.1 rushing yards per game has transformed into a dominant run-stopping machine. The Bucs are only giving up 47.3 rushing yards...

Greg Schiano could be fired this season

The Buccaneers play in a very difficult division, and they're still busy picking up the pieces from the short-lived Raheem Morris era. The man the team chose to re-build with is Greg Schiano, but he shouldn't get too comfortable. He could be gone at the end of the year. As a general rule, I don't like to let my personal biases into my writing, especially on...

Bucs waive Shipley, add veteran Parrish

Jordan Shipley's brief stay with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to an abrupt end Tuesday, derailed by a fumbled punt Sunday in a 16-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The free agent wide receiver and special teams player was waived and replaced on the roster by eight-year wide receiver and standout return man Roscoe Parrish, the longtime Buffalo Bill and former Miami Hurricane. The...

Tampa Bay Bucs Mascot goes Gangnam style (not horrible)

Okay, we are kind of ashamed to admit we get a good laugh out of these Gangnam style videos. They aren't nearly as obnoxious as the "Call Me Maybe" spin-off's. And that, despite the words to Ganngam being mostly Korean. Of course we aren't sure what language "Call me Maybe" is in either. Anyway. Take a look at the video the Tampa Bay Buccaneers...

NFL Rumors: Should NFL Network Fire Warren Sapp For Comments About Brandon Marshall?

NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp has always had a big mouth. When he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, he could back up his talking with his play on the field. But as an analyst, Sapp’s talking is starting to get him into trouble. Between other off the field incidents, Sapp was already on thin ice in terms of his job security with the NFL Network. But after...

Bucs offense quite offensive in loss to Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 16-10. However, the score could have been one less touchdown for the Bucs as their offense could not get anything going. Tampa Bay started off quick when Aqib Talib stepped in front of Cowboys’ wide receiver Miles Austin to intercept the pass from Tony Romo. Josh Freeman would go on to throw a one yard touchdown pass...

Warren Sapp insults Brandon Marshall’s intelligence, ends up looking like the idiot himself

In the latest example of his inability to think before he speaks, Warren Sapp has called Brandon Marshall a retard in a very public forum. As an analyst, Sapp is paid to have opinions and his employers likely encourage him to be a bit outrageous/controversial, however, he has shown on a number of occasions that [...]

Video: More Debacles for NFL Replacement Refs

It’s been a tough season so far for the replacement officials in the NFL. It seems to be obvious to almost every NFL player, coach and fan, who’s name isn’t Roger Goodell, that the replacement reps aren’t up to par with the currently locked out officials. We all know that the old officials made mistakes, but the amount of mistakes seemed miniscule compared to what we’ve...
