[060] It’s a post-draft hangover in Bucs land. We talk the Berlin Eagles, group projects, Gerald McCoy (of course), jersey numbers (and jerseys), and more.

It’s a slow news week following the NFL draft. The Bucs waive six players, including fan favorite Riley Bullough. The other players on the chopping block were P Hayden Hunt, K Phillip Andersen, DE Hunter Dimick, and DT Nick Thurman. We delve into Andersen’s former team, the Berlin Eagles, and touch on that other sport they call “futbol”. With Riley Bullough quickly finding a home at the Tennessee Titans, we posit whether the Buccaneers are a feeder team for the AFC team, and reminisce about other feeder leagues. Remember that XFL player nicknamed “He Hate Me”? Ralph does! With Devin White choosing No. 41 out of respect for Mike Alstott, Ralph divulges where the Bucs’ jerseys stand amongst the rest of the league. We postulate the methods used to design the Bucs uniforms, and reminisce about group projects. What will the offensive line be after George Warhop’s reign? Will Donovan Smith grow after the departure of the only NFL offensive line coach he’s ever known? G Earl Watford makes a statement on Twitter. Ralph examines the composition of the team before and after the draft, and reveals how it stacks up against the rest of the league. Plus, we’ll discuss the state of our defensive backs.

[052] Offseason day #102: Looking to the future as we discuss preseason and regular season opponents, the draft and former Buccaneers

Former Buccaneer Adrian Clayborn returns home to the NFC South… with the Atlanta Falcons. Ralph and Molly speculate on when we’ll hear the verdict on Kendall Beckwith’s ankle. Jameis Winston’s weight gain might not be as serious as previously thought. We want to hear from you! Which is more appropriate for our “Quarterback Whisperer” discussion: Buccaneers Observer Book Club or the Podcast Whisperer? (Okay, typing that out I think I know the clear winner.) We talk predraft visits and Molly does some maths! Austin Sefarian-Jenkins: “That son of a bitch is going to win a Superbowl.” Does Chris Godwin have the emotional range of a pretzel (like yours truly) or is he just confused about his role on the offense? Ralph looks ahead to the new Collective Bargaining Agreement in 2021 and reminisces about the good ol’ days before seat belts and color television. Are you #TeamJuJu or #TeamAB? We speculate on Jon Gruden’s choice as we remember Keyshawn Johnson. We look ahead to this season’s opponents and predict the Bucs 2019 record. Ralph laments the departure of his favorite cheerleader of years past and Molly adds to his gift idea list.
