A Blast from the Past: Number 63, DE, Lee Roy Selmon.

Football has many great players throughout time. However, not every great player gets selected to take his place in Canton, Ohio in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If you ever visited the Hall of Fame, you would see great players such as: Jim Thorpe, Jim Brown, Bart Star, Johnny Unitas, Walter Payton, Tony Dorsett, and Joe Montana.

You would learn that teams like the Arizona Cardinals has 10 Hall of Famers, the Chicago Bears have 26 players, Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins both with 15, Green Bay Pakers 21, New York Giants 18, Steelers have 17, while the Colts and Rams both have 13 each. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one actual Hall of Famer and he is none other the defensive end, number 63, Lee Roy Selmon.

As promised here is "A Blast from the Past". This is my way to pay tribute to the great Buccaneer players of the past. Some of these players are in our hearts as Buccaneer fans, but will never be honored any other way. This week I picked Lee Roy Selmon, Defensive End for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In 1954, Lee Roy Selmon was born to Lucious and Jessie Selmon in Eufaula, Oklahoma; the youngest of nine children.

In 1974-1975 Lee Roy Selmon was a 3 Time All-American at University of Oklahoma. Lee Roy and his brother Dewey Selmon helped the Sooners win back-to-back championship titles All Big Eight Conference Team

"He's a franchise. You know, it's easy to hand out
the word great and all the other superlatives, but if those words ever fit a
ballplayer they have to fit Lee Roy. I know that there have been some players
like him in the country. I'm sure that Mean Joe Green and Alan Page and those
people must be that kind of football player. But I've never ever had anything
like Lee Roy."
- Larry Lacewell, former Sooner defensive coordinator.

Lee Roy Selmon was drafted in 1976 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the number one pick overall of the 1976 NFL draft. First-ever draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Lee Roy Selmon played on the sorriest team in the NFL during this time, but in 1979, he was the Key member of NFC Central Division Champs and selected as the NFL Defensive Lineman of the Year, he was also selected All-Pro that year.

1980Selected All-Pro

1980 Buccaneer (Miller Brewing Company) Man of the Year

1980 Kiwanis Citizen of the Year (District 8 - Florida West Coast)

1981 Key member of NFC Central Division Champs, Named NFL Defensive Player of the Year

1982 Selected All-Pro

1982-83 "Service to Mankind" Award by the Hillsboro Sertoma Club

1983 Selected to play in Pro Bowl - NFC TeamSelected All-Pro, All-NFC

1986 Retires from professional football.Career stats: 78 1/2 sacks, 380 quarterback pressures, forced 28 1/2 fumbles, recovered 10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers all-time leader in starts (118), #63 jersey only one retired by the Buccaneers.

1988 Inducted College Football Hall of Fame

1994 Inducted into the GTE Academic All-America Hall of Fame

1995 Inducted into NFL Hall of Fame; the first former Sooner and the only Tampa Bay Buccaneer to date
"I had the opportunity to speak to the Hall of
Famers who preceded me like Otto Graham, Gene Upshaw and Gale Sayers...we spoke
of what it all means to join the Hall and it goes far beyond what's on the
football field. It goes and stretches right into life. And how you can use it to
reach out to help others. That's the true meaning of the Pro Football Hall of
- Lee Roy Selmon

Lee Roy Selmon played for the Buccaneers from 1976-1985. He retired in 1985 as a Buc.Lee Roy Selmon was selected by the Pewter Report as the number 1st greatest Buc of all time, and shares that title with Derrick Brooks.

Lee Roy Selmon was named as the 2nd Greatest Buccaneer Player of all-time by BUCPOWER.COM in 2003.

Lee Roy Selmon’s jersey is the only Jersey that has ever been retired by the Bucs. No one will ever where number 63 again.

Bucs Updates......

By Now everyone knows that Jay Fiedler has signed with the Bucs. Call Jay Fiedler the Sunshine Quarterback. He now has accomplished what no other quarterback in history has. After signing a one-year deal for the veteran minimum with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on June 29, Fiedler became the first quarterback to play for each of Florida's three NFL teams. Fiedler already has played for Jacksonville and Miami. The Buccaneers signed quarterback Jay Fielder on Thursday. Fiedler will compete with Tim Rattay for the No. 2 job behind starter Chris Simms. Fiedler is still nursing his surgically repaired shoulder, but he hopes to be ready for training camp. Jay previously played under Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden back when he was an offensive coordinator for the Eagles.

I think this is a smart football move, Gruden wanted another QB going into training camp. Ask any Dolphin fan, and they will tell you they like Fiedler, specially in 2001: Along with C Tim Ruddy, was voted by his teammates as a co-captain on offense ... Started all 16 regular season games ... Completed 273 of 450 passes for 3,290 yards with 20 touchdowns and 19 interceptions, for a passer rating of 80.3, which ranked seventh in the AFC ... Established personal single-season career highs for passing yards, attempts, completions and touchdown passes ... Became just the second Dolphins quarterback (Dan Marino) to throw for 3,000 yards in a season, and the third signal caller in team history to throw 20 or more touchdowns (Dan Marino, Bob Griese) ... His rating was the highest by a Dolphins quarterback since 1997 when Dan Marino put together a rating of 80.7 ... Also finished second on the team with 321 yards rushing and four touchdowns on 73 attempts ... Led the team in rushing twice during the course of the year ... It marked the first time since 1998, and just the third time over the last seven seasons (1995-01) that a Dolphins quarterback started every regular season game ... Led the Dolphins to five fourth-quarter comeback wins over the course of the year.

Am I saying Fiedler is the Bucs savor? HELL NO, I am just saying it was a smart move bringing Fiedler in. I am still sold on Rattay as the number 2 guy, but maybe Coach Gruden isn't and that is all that matters. Besides, I think Gruden has found his quarterback with Gradkowski (which will take a few years to develope since he is a rookie).

As for Mr. Jamael Oronde Barber, he will get his as I am told. Let see how many times have I been wrong when I reported something? If and only if I am wrong, I will be the first to admitt I was wrong. One must remember that the Bucs must sign all their rookies, they needed a new QB, since Luke went down, but I guess the real live reporters didn't consider that, they just wanted to stir things up before training camp, where it has also been reported that Barber will holdout, But wait he said he would not do that, so I guess those real live reporters LIE (I am shocked).

But what do I know, I am just a computer dork, wearing pajamas . Which is a lot better then being a Fucking idoit wearing Superman Underoos, who dosen't know shit about his so called favorite team, which proves he is a true bandwagon fan .

T.J. Williams out for the Season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have suffered their first season injury to rookie tight end T.J. Williams for the entire 2006 season after the sixth-round draft choice suffered an injury to his right Achilles tendon during the team's mandatory three-day minicamp last week.

It is expected that Williams, the sixth round pick and the 202nd player chosen overall, will be placed on injured reserve.

This is bad for Williams, but at least this was not a starter that went down.

Jermaine Phillips on Cadillac Williams...

Ever wonder what Tampa Bay Safety Jermaine Phillips and the Bucs Defense think of Cadillac Williams? Well check it out and also see why they voted Cadillac as the MVP of the Defense.

Bucs Hire Kevin Demoff..

Pewter Report broke a story that the Bucs have hired Kevin Demoff to be the senior assistant to Buccaneers general manager Bruce Allen. You ask who the hell is Demoff, as I did? Well I did my research and discovered this guy might be a "diamond in the ruff."

Kevin Demoff has an inside lane on the fast track. He has three years as director of football operations for the Arena Football League's Los Angeles Avengers. He was a consultant in 2005 for the Buccaneers, and now it seems with the major loss of director of player personnel Ruston Webster, who was hired by Seattle, Demoff is the man. Ruston Webster is a major loss for the Bucs, who have not really felt his loss yet. Next season the Bucs might feel it after they have gone a full year with out Webster's input.

Demoff seems like he could be the man to help GM Bruce Allen with contract negotiations, salary cap management, scouting and planning. I have always been impressed with the Bucs since the Glazers Era on their selection of front office staff.

Here is ainformativee article about Demoff:
Valley News Web

Gruden Loves Boston...

Wide receiver David Boston has looked "pretty damn good" at Buccaneers minicamp thus far, according to head coach Jon Gruden. Boston certainly has the potential to help the Buccaneers passing game, but considering his injury problems, he is likely to become the No. 3 receiver and push Ike Hilliard out of a job. I love the fact that we got Boston and it came at little cost. I think if he can find his former self, he could be the number two guy on this team. Don't get me wrong, I love Galloway and Clayton as 1 and 2, but Boston is good enough to steal Clayton's job if Clayton does not bring it this season.

Jay Fiedler visits with Jon Gruden.....

Former Dolphins and Jets QB Jay Fiedler (right) attended Bucs practice on Thursday and spoke with Head Coach Jon Gruden . Could Fiedler be the back-up quarterback that the Bucs are looking for after Luke McCown went down with a knee injury.

“It’s just a feeling-out process right now, coming in here,” said Fiedler.
“Obviously, with what happened with Luke [McCown] last week, there looking for
another guy to come in and compete a little bit. My situation, I’m rehabbing
right now and hoping to be ready to go once training camp gets started. So we’re
just feeling each other out and hopefully we can come together on some terms and
see where it goes.”
Fiedler did say that the Buccaneer possibility intrigued him, in no small part because of the presence of Gruden. The two were together for several seasons in Philadelphia, with Gruden as the offensive coordinator and Fiedler as an inactive third quarterback in 1995 and a training camp participant in 1996. Fiedler also worked with current Bucs’ offensive coordinator Bill Muir in 2004 after signing with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent from Dartmouth.

“I would love to get back together with [Gruden] again and
work with him,” said Fiedler. “He does a great job coaching the quarterback
position and making it easy on the quarterback to be successful. Right now, I’m
just looking at this situation as well as a few others and trying to determine
where the best spot for me is going to be.”

Gruden had this to say about Fiedler:
“He’s won a lot of games,” said Gruden. “If you look at his
won-lost record in Miami, it was pretty solid. He’s a smart, quick study and
he’s a good guy and right now he’s looking for a team to help out. We’re looking
into his situation and everything else is just speculation at this

It seems almost every quarterback would love to play for Coach Gruden, how many time have we heard an offensive player, specially a quarterback say they were interested in Tampa because of Coach Gruden. The man is that DAMN good.

My thoughts: I have said it before and I'll say it again, I like Tim Rattay. Remember this is what Gruden said about Rattay back in October of 2005:

“We didn’t bring [Rattay] in here to hold a clipboard forever,” said Gruden “We
try not to draft players or sign players who we don’t think can eventually play
for us.”

“However, given what did occur, Rattay said he couldn’t have asked
for a better turn of events than Tuesday’s surprise trade. He felt even better
about it when he was informed that the Bucs had previously tried to deal for him
before the season.”

Rattay is also the same guy that the Bucs were after in the 2005 offseason, before Griese went down. I also would not forget that Gruden is falling in love with rookie quarterback Bruce Gradkowski.

"I've got a lot of confidence he's going to be a player," Gruden said.
"We've just got to temper our enthusiasm and bring him along, but he really shows
a quick, accurate arm. He's got really good mobility. And he's got a
charisma about him that quarterbacks I think have to have.

No matter what happens, I like the Jay Fiedler thing. I think Rattay and Gradkowski are going to be very good NFL quarterbacks. I think both server nicely as Simms back-up. Rattay questionably could be the starter, so if Fiedler does sign, he knows Gruden, and sure he is coming of a shoulder injury. Having Rattay and Gradkowski on the team gives Fiedler time he might need to heal. Don't forget we still have Jared Allen also on the team. We will keep you posted on the back-up quarterback position as the Bucs continue to interview.

Bucs Updates.......

I am so behind on Bucs news, I have been studying for my medical test.

Number 2 Quarterback on the Depth Chart Luke McCown, has to have knee surgery. McCown, who is considered the most mobile quarterback on the Bucs roster injured his right knee during Organized team activity.

Coach Gruden had this to say about the situation:
"He's going to have surgery here in the next couple days," said the coach. "Our main man down in Miami, Dr. [John] Zvijac will do a great job, and [Head Trainer] Todd Toriscelli will begin the rehab process immediately. We can only update you as time moves on, but right now he won't be with us for the early part of the season. But knowing Luke McCown like I do, he'll be back sooner than most guys."

I think Rattay and Gradkowski got a big break, and I think both of these quarterbacks are fine as back-ups. Gruden, who normally enters training camp with 4-5 quarterbacks. He probably will look to bring in another guy to spark competition during training camp. If I was a betting man, I would say that Gradkowski wins the back-up job, until Luke can return.

Gradkowski has been a favorite of Gruden's since he was drafted by Tampa. Gruden's comments on Gradkowski. With Kerry Collins as the star veteran qb, I think we might see a little more of Rattay and Gradkowski at training camp. I'll let you know as I will be there every day.

Anoter former Bucs player dies at the age of 52: Former Bucs receiver Theo Bell died Wednesday at St. Joseph's Hospital after a lengthy battle with kidney disease and scleroderma. You can read about Theo Bell's NFL Career with the Bucs at St Pete Times.

The Bucs Story 1976-Present

Schedule for the Bucs’ 2006 Training Camp

July is almost here and so is football season. I look forward to this time of year, because being a HUGE Bucs Fan, and living so close to Tampa and Orlando, I get to see the Bucs in person all the time. This year is a little different for me. For the past three years, since 2003, when the Bucs first started going to training camp at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex outside Orlando, I have had to take a week off of work. I always had a lot of vacation time so it was no big deal, the reward was seeing my Bucs in Person all week long. Well, I have since taken an early retirement and I am back in school working on my second degree and second career (not counting the Army of course), so this year I will be able to go everyday. My friends who still work at my old job, hate me right now lol, and they have to take a day off here and there to go with me to training camp. But they get me back when they get to work the security details for the Bucs and I don't anymore. Anyway, I will take a lot of photos and post them on here from training camp. This is also a great way to get autographs. I have so many autographs just from training camp.

My 3rd blog

For those of you who has a love for Pro-wrestling like I do, I am starting my 3rd blog dedicated to Pro-Wrestling.

Just as my love for the Bucs, I also have a love for Pro-Championship wrestling. This started when I was a little boy and my dad would take my brother and I to the Civic Center in Punta Gorda, FL where I grew up at (yes Ski, this is where the big hammerhead was caught), and we would see great names like Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Mike Graham, and Magnum TA. When wrestling became big, they stopped wrestling at the Punta Gorda Civic Center, which is no longer due to hurricane Charlie. I had to goto the Fort Myers Civic Center and watch the big stars like Sting, Lex Luger, Ric Flair and such. Today, I still follow wrestling with a passion. So I am creating a wrestling blog, which will be as technically advanced as this blog. I promise it won't interfere with the Bucs Blog, "Pewter Pirates" come first, followed by my fantasy football blog, and my wrestling blog at

From the Desk of Cutthroat.....

Bucs News:
Man so much has been going on, I last left off at the Bucs Fan Fest, which has now passed. Another success.

This past Monday was also another first for the Bucs as "Making the Squad" aired on the NFL Network, channel 212 as us Direct TV customers well know. This was a good show, my wife and I watched not just because we are Bucs fans, but our good friend’s girlfriend just made the squad and she was on the show. The next episode airs this Monday, and Yes, I will be watching.

Talking about the NFL Network, they have the Bucs like never before, this Monday at 8PM is Making the Squad - Tampa Bay Bucs - Episode 2 - The three-part series chronicles all aspects of the cheerleader audition process as veterans compete to maintain their positions while eager rookies struggle to make the team.

followed by The Birth of the Bucs - follows the terrible 1976 expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers through its first season from training camp to the end. Much of the footage is outtakes and mistakes because this was not only a bad season for the team, but also a test to NFL Films crews since they had never done anything like this before. Also includes footage of other people in the NFL.

Then Thursday, June 15, 2006, the NFL Network will air at 8pm 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Under head coach Jon Gruden, the Buccaneers finished the regular season 12-4. Led to the playoffs by defensive player of the year Derrick Brooks, the Buccaneers defeated the 49ers and the Eagles on their way to a victory agains the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.

8:30pm Super Bowl XXXVII: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Oakland Raiders - Under head coach Jon Gruden, the Buccaneers' defense that featured Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks intercepted five passes, three of which were returned for touchdowns en route to the franchise's first Super Bowl victory 48-21 over the Raiders. After two interceptions, Bucs safety Dexter Jackson was named MVP.

9 p.m. -- Game of the Week (Normal show where the NFL Network picks a game and we get to watch it again)
2005 Atlanta Falcons vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers - (12/24) - 24-27, OT - Matt Bryant's 41-yard field goal with 15 seconds remaining in overtime Saturday gave the Bucs a 27-24 victory over the Falcons and a share of first place in the NFC South heading into the final week of the season. Chris Simms threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns.

Also yesterday the NFL Network interviewed Michael Clayton. He talked about the typed “contract” between him and Coach Gruden. He said that he was brought into be the “GO TO GUY” and Gruden still plans on using Clayton that way. He stated he is healthy and ready for this season. He was asked about his and Chris Simms relationship, which he said was good and even hinted about the rumor (Simms has talked publicly about Galloway, and David Boston, but has left Clayton out of the headlines). Some say that Simms is doing this just to keep Clayton on his toes. You can watch the video at .

I will be adding to my Video collection this next week. I have a huge Bucs Video collection of old games, new games, interviews, HBO Inside the NFL, The Superbowl, to include that entire year, anything and everything you name it, I record it.

Around the NFL and Fantasy Talk:

Steve McNair passed the Ravens team physical Thursday morning, according to the Baltimore Sun, completing the final step in the deal which sends the quarterback from Tennessee to Baltimore in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick in 2007. The Ravens have called a press conference for later Thursday afternoon to formally announce the deal. Huge Fantasy impact here, since the Ravens number one receiver played with McNair.

Carson Palmer won't participate fully in the Bengals' minicamp which opens June 15, but head coach Marvin Lewis still thinks his quarterback will be ready for the start of the season. When asked if he thought Palmer would play during the preseason, Lewis told the Cincinnati Enquirer, "Yes." Lewis also said he believed Palmer would start the regular-season opener September 10 against the Chiefs.

In a move that appears to be salary related, Patriots wide reciever Deion Branch is not attending the passing camp being held this week in Foxboro. While the camp is technically deemed "voluntary," sources close to Branch have told the Boston Herald that he may not attend the mandatory minicamp scheduled for June 13-14 as well. Jayson Chayut, Branch's agent, would not comment on the situation, but Branch has told those around him that he is considering taking any necessary steps to get what he deems a fair market contract

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will join Donovan McNabb and Matt Hasselbeck as pitchman for Campbell's Chunky Soup. A commercial starring Roethlisberger, his mother Brenda, and six Steeler teammates will begin shooting at Heinz Field next week. This is bad news for Steeler fans. There is a curse with this commercial, every NFL Player that has done Chunky Soap has been hit with the Injury Bug. Donvan, and our beloved John Lynch.

Niners wide receiver Arnaz Battle is expected to return to practice on Tuesday after sitting out on Monday due to swelling in his knee. "I had another MRI done and there are no problems structurally or anything," Battle told "My knee is still stable but I had some swelling in there because of the workload. It's frustrating not to be out there taking reps but I don't expect it to be a lingering problem."
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb addressed the media following practice on Tuesday and provided an update on his return from hernia and groin surgeries. "I would like to say at 100 percent, but you never know until you put the pads on and get back into a scrimmage situation or a possible game situation," he told the team's official web site. "I feel like I've been getting stronger and with the flexibility trainer I've been working with...I'm getting looser...I am pretty much already convinced to say I am healthy, but until (I'm) tested, we won't know for sure." McNabb underwent surgery on November 28, 2005 to repair a sports hernia and a groin tear.

After attending mandatory minicamp workouts over the weekend, Bears running back Thomas Jones skipped a voluntary team meeting on Monday morning, according to the Chicago Tribune. As such, the disgruntled rusher is not expected to attend the team's upcoming voluntary workout sessions. Bears running back Cedric Benson once again got most of the first-team reps. Rumor has it that Coach Smith is pissed at Thomas and Thomas as asked to be traded.

Shepherd Signs New Deal

Edell Shepherd, the 26-year-old wide receiver signed a new contract with the Bucs.

“We’ve got a lot of speed at receiver right now, we really do,” said Simms
after a recent offseason practice introduced Boston to the lineup. “[Boston] is
great, but we’ve got guys like Edell Shepherd and Ike Hilliard and J.R. Russell
who are also extremely capable of making some big plays.”

According to,
Shepherd’s signing very nearly completes the work of re-signing the list of
Buccaneers who became free agents in March. Only running back Earnest Graham,
another exclusive rights free agent, remains on the to-do list. The Bucs had
previously re-signed unrestricted free agents Hilliard, Mike Alstott, Matt
Bryant, Chris Hovan, Dave Moore and Kenyatta Walker, restricted free agents
Torrie Cox and Sean Mahan and exclusive rights free agents Anthony Davis and Jeb
Terry. In addition, potential free agents Simms and Juran Bolden were re-upped
before the open market period began.

Where Will I Be Tomorrow.............

Of Course, I will be at the 2006 Buccaneer Fan Fest. I never miss it, what true fan would? If I lived in Alaska, I would still be here for this event. This is truly a way for the Bucs to give thanks to their fans.

Ok for those that have never been here is how it works?

9:30 am gates open, and on-field activities and Pirate ship open. However, most of us will still be standing in a line of about 40,000 waiting to get our VOUCHERS for club level autographs. In fact most of us have been waiting since 6:00 am. YES, a die hard Bucs fan gets up at 6:00 am and waits in line to get his VOUCHER to get the Rookie of the Year(Cadillac Williams') autograph. A small price to pay but well worth it to me.

10:00 All autograph areas open ( and there is a lot of areas to get autographs. Ok, here is how it works, the stadium is broken into for corners, A, B, C, D. Each club level gets an A, B, C, D. Inside each area is 3-4 players that will sign autographs for you. The nice thing is that this is inside the air- condition, which as we all know Florida heat is a killer.
