Earnest Graham

It's getting ridiculous.  All of it.  The interceptions, the dropped passes, the offensive predictability... One week, the Buccaneers need a 17-point comeback to overtake the 1-6 Vikings; the next, they're smashing the Saints and breaking Sean Payton's legs. They have no identity.  The team exists somewhere in between the 48-3 West Coast beatdown and the… Read More

BEARS: Play at Wembley for 1st time since American Bowl on 8/3/86. Head coach Lovie Smith was LB coach for TB from 1996-2000…QB Jay Culter won only career start vs. TB (10/5/08 w/ Den.). In career (incl. playoffs), when he has 100+ rating, his teams are 24-0…RB Matt Forte leads NFL with 908 scrimmage yards… Read More

In 2010 Josh Freeman was 84-of-139 for 1,015 yards, 5 touchdowns, 1 interception and a completion percentage of 60.4 for an average of 7.30 yards per pass and a QB rating of 91.9. Through two games this season Freeman thus far has improved on those numbers completing 17-of-18 for 210 yards, a completion percentage of… Read More

Last Sunday’s game against Detroit was disappointing. Not because I predicted the Lions to win and they did, but disappointing that Tampa Bay wasn’t able to put up much of a fight. The 27-20 Lions victory was not as close as the score would indicate. Tampa was bullied up front and quarterback Matthew Stafford was… Read More

There is a lot to like about the preseason. Some people love finally being able to watch the starters in action. Some enjoy seeing which draft picks make a name for themselves. Others use the preseason as a way to gauge their fantasy football prospects. Or you're like me: thrilled to have something other than… Read More

THE GOOD Josh Johnson exists somewhere in that gray area between first and second string.  He struggled as a starter in 2009—throwing to Michael Clayton and a gimpy Antonio Bryant—and didn’t do much to dissuade Josh Freeman’s ascendancy, but in the preseason, he’s been an athletic, reckless, yardage-eating dynamo.  The Chiefs didn’t have an answer… Read More

Even though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently looking for a running back to step up and be the teams third down back, a spot vacated by Carnell Williams, who's close to signing a deal with the St. Louis Rams. Don't look for the team to carry two true fullbacks with the versatility of both… Read More

Seventh year running back Earnest Graham, who holds the franchise record for receptions in a single game with 13 is the front runner to replace Carnell Williams as the team third down back at the moment. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson wants to work Kregg Lumpkin, who’s been in the offense for a full year, into… Read More

Purely speculation on our part, but with the recent drunken induced bar fight, in which Cedric Benson, the workhorse running back for the Cincinnati Bengals punched an employee of Annie’s West bar in the face on May 30, the Bucs might have just found a trading partner to unload underachieving RB Derrick Ward to. Benson… Read More

One of the many Tampa Bay Buccaneer tryout hopefuls, that has been turning heads during the first two days of rookie mini camp is undrafted tryout player Rendrick Taylor a chiseled 6-foot-2, 274-pound FB prospect. That diffidently passes the eyeball test. A tweener type who entered Clemson as a receiver, but after packing on 30… Read More

Taking a quick trip around the internet this morning reveals quite a few interesting headlines in the category of news worthy Bucs related items. From main stream media giants like ESPN and Profootballtalk.com to smaller news outlets such as the Herald Tribune, we got you the fan covered. No need to do a google search… Read More

The Buccaneers released their depth chart early this week, along with a game plan to use youth and depth to their advantage by routinely rotating players, particularly at running back. Cadillac Williams will lead the running attack, but that does not mean Derrick Ward and Earnest Graham will take a backseat. “We’re gonna work them… Read More

Four running backs one football, during last nights telecast of the game, I found it quite amusing that the duo of Joe Buck & Troy Aikman who were calling the game for FOX, suggested that Raheem Morris and offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski are pulling for oft-injured running back Cadillac Williams to secure the role as… Read More
