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 .
