Fan disappointment and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
December 03, 2018 02:30AM
We all get disappointed for some reason or another when it comes to our favorite sports teams. Part of being involved physically and emotionally as a fan makes it all worth it. As fans Buccaneers Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , disappointment is a shared commodity and it’s the ability to express these feelings out loud that makes a sports community so amazing. I asked our readers, fans and my own personal friends via twitter for their most disappointing items in relations to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so we can discuss together and take a collective sigh of relief because after all, we’re in this together. It didn’t take long for a response that should make us all take a step back and think aloud came about. As JC states below, why can’t fans, the media or anybody outside of One Buc seem to give these guys a chance? Adding on to @jcdelatorre ‘s tweet above, it seems as if the team of late has sucked the fun out of being a fan and dreaming big. It’s a brand new season, the defense and offense have had their share of improvements via the draft and free agency, so why is there not more optimism at least locally about this team? Then again, @jcdelatorre did back up our very own @GilArciaBucs who feels the team may see double digit wins in his record prediction. Jameis Winston was sure to come up in some way shape or form and @A_Katzman83 didn’t mince words in his take. A sore topic for sure but one worth mentioning because this dead horse hasn’t quite been beaten enough. Many fans have stuck of for Jameis or gone out of their way to defend the quarterback’s actions and accusations against while at Florida State. Some have felt the need to defend his on field play as well and to each their own on all accounts. What most of us fans can agree on is this, when news first broke (and then the suspension) that Jameis may have been involved in an incident with an Uber driver that involved some misconduct, we all pulled a little hair out of our scalps and asked “WHY?!?!?!?”. So don’t worry Andrew Cheap Mike Evans Jersey , you’re definitely not alone on this one. No response hit home quite like this one here from @BeckerBoy. We all remember the glory days when defense ruled this team and struck fear into the hearts of opposing fan bases when they knew their offense had to go up against Sapp and company. Defense was suppose to be this teams identity for generations to come much like the Steel Curtain in Pittsburgh. But as @BeckerBoy states below... it’s quite the opposite lately. The way the team has performed since the dominating defense vanished is just sad. The offense is inconsistent, the defense at times is a leaking faucet that only keeps gushing worse and worse. The kicking game... let’s not even go there actually. The team as a whole has failed. Nothing would be better than a winning season to cure all the disappointment among the fan base. That word finds it’s way into another piece here, huh? Winning. 7 letters but it almost seems as if it’s a 4 letter word around these parts. If this team, this staff, this ownership and these players could just find a way to put it together in 2018 and win, win big, win often... these fans would have a lot to cheer about and would soon forget about the recent disappointment that surrounds their sports fan lives. Come on Buccaneers, let’s set the sails and win some ball games. Julio Jones remains in coach Dan Quinn's good graces even after missing the opening day of the Atlanta Falcons' mandatory minicamp.Quinn said Tuesday he thought Jones, who missed voluntary offseason workouts , would participate in the minicamp. The coach said he found out Monday that Jones would skip the minicamp.Quinn wouldn't share details of his conversation with Jones but said "Sometimes football and business intersect and that's OK and that happens a lot."Jones has three years remaining on his five-year, $71.3 million deal with $47 million in guaranteed money but could soon have the deal tweaked. Quinn said the team is "right in the middle" of talks with Jones Cheap Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey , a five-time Pro Bowl selection.Quinn has emphasized "brotherhood" and making sure players do everything as a team. Players stood together as a team on the sideline during the national anthem for all games after two players kneeled in protest early in the 2017 season.Could Jones' absence hurt the Falcons' unity?"No," Quinn said. "I recognize the question, for sure. Do we want everybody here all the time? Hell yeah, like all the time. ... What I'd say is if you ask to a man, the guy is a hell of a teammate and the time he spends here, the way he mentors people, how hard he plays, there is plenty of brotherhood in Julio."Receiver Mohamed Sanu said he and other players were not impacted by Jones' absence."Whether he's present or not, we were just focused on what we have to do today," said Sanu, the team's No. 2 receiver behind Jones.Jones Kwon Alexander Jersey , 29, remains one of the league's top receivers. He earned his fourth straight Pro Bowl berth last season when he had 88 catches for 1,444 yards. It was his fourth straight season with at least 80 receptions and 1,400 receiving yards.Jones' salary cap figure of $12.9 million for 2018 ranks seventh among NFL receivers, well behind recent deals signed by Tampa Bay's Mike Evans ($18.252 million in 2018) and Cleveland's Jarvis Landry ($15.5 million).Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said Monday he has been in talks with Jones and Jones' agent, Jimmy Sexton.Sexton did not return a message from The Associated Press.Jones' holdout comes after the Falcons made quarterback Matt Ryan the league's top-paid player this offseason with a five-year extension that could be worth $150 million.Quinn said he was not disappointed in Jones' decision to miss minicamp because Jones remained in constant communication and explained why his plans changed."Sometimes circumstances change and as long as players communicate with me on why circumstances change, then I never am disappointed as long as communication with me is very clear," Quinn said. "... The things that jam me up are when people don't communicate."Quinn wouldn't say if Jones will be fined for missing the first day of the three-day minicamp.Without Jones on the field, Ryan's top targets included Sanu, rookie first-round pick Calvin Ridley and Justin Hardy. Like Jones, Ridley played at Alabama.An undrafted rookie Cheap Jameis Winston Jersey , Christian Blake, from Northern Illinois, reached up to make an impressive catch over the middle."All those guys, Calvin, Christian Blake, it was good to see those guys make plays and do what they do," Sanu said.Quinn praised the rookies' speed and said the class "has a chance to be an excellent one."NOTES: The team waived S Quincy Mauger, who spent his 2017 rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury. He was an undrafted free agent from Georgia. ... RB Devonta Freeman, who was slowed by a sprained right knee late last season, appeared to be fully recovered on his runs with the first-team offense.
