Ken and Leo spent the last episode discussing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offseason changes, but they avoided talking about one specific topic.
So for this episode, the guys talk about the decision to cut Darrelle Revis after failed attempts to trade him. Where do the Bucs go from here without one of the best players of this generation?
Did the Buccaneers make the right move in simply cutting Revis? Have they done enough with other free agent signings to make up for losing the best player at corner in the NFL?
If you thought Ken sounded upset in the last episode, just wait until you listen to this one!
Ken and Leo are back to discuss all of the changes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers now that the initial flurry of roster moves have been made during the 2014 free agency frenzy.
The guys consider the addition of Michael Johnson, and if he can be the elite pass rusher that Lovie Smith wants in his defense. Can Clinton McDonald give the Buccaneers their money's worth as an interior disruption on passing downs?
They also consider Alterraun Verner, and while not comparing him to any previous Buccaneers (that comes in another podcast), the guys discuss the playmaking ability and contract of the Bucs' newest defensive back.
(Note: This podcast was recorded before Evan Dietrich-Smith was signed.)
(Note: Discussion of Darrelle Revis and the impact of his departure will happen on the next podcast.)
Ben Natan of WithTheFirstPick.com joined Leo for a special episode of the podcast to discuss the NFL Draft and some of the prospects that he likes, and doesn't like in this year's class.
The guys begin by discussing the top quarterbacks in this draft, as Ben reveals the one quarterback (and only one quarterback) he'd take with a top-10 pick.
Ben and Leo then discuss the other options the Buccaneers will have at the seventh spot in the draft. Can Khalil Mack fit the Buccaneers' defense? Which tackle is better, Jake Matthews or Greg Robinson? And is Sammy Watkins a sure-fire star in the NFL who is ready to have an "elite" impact?
Finally, the guys discuss some of Ben's favorite mid to late round players, to give you some insight into some less-talked about players who may surprise you in the NFL.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled a new logo and helmet this past week, but as Ken and Leo discuss on this episode of the podcast, that won't be the last change the Buccaneers make this summer.
Discussions are raging on among Buccaneer fans about Donald Penn, Carl Nicks, Davin Joseph and the Buccaneers' offensive line. What do the guys think about the disappointing front line for the 2013 Bucs?
Ken and Leo discuss Penn's level of play, Joseph's contract and Carl Nicks' injury status, and look ahead to the NFL Draft and if adding a left tackle via the draft makes sense.
Ken and Leo are back with another episode of the podcast, and they kick things off by discussing the teams' upcoming logo/helmet change. Will the current uniform be a "throwback?" by the end of the week?
As for the rest of the podcast, we will issue this warning. There will be Mike Glennon talk. A lot of it. And it's not positive.
What do the Buccaneers have in Mike Glennon, and what are others seeing in him that the writers of The Pewter Plank don't? Given some recent praise for Glennon by other media outlets, the guys give their honest take on the Bucs' starting quarterback.
Bruce Gradkowski, Bucco Bruce and Blaine Gabbert all make an appearance on this episode of the Pewter Plank Podcast.
It's been a relatively busy week in Tampa Bay as the Buccaneers have made some moves, and the Pewter Plank podcast is back to discuss it all.
Ken and Leo begin the discussion by talking about Sammy Watkins, one of the most talked about draft prospects for the Buccaneers this season. Is he really the answer for the Buccaneers' offense? Or is he just another Troy Williamson?
The guys also take a moment to discuss the Mike Williams situation. What's his future with the Buccaneers?
And finally, they break the news that happened this week, and discuss the release of Gabe Carimi and Derek Landri, and the signing of Mike Kafka.
In this episode of the Pewter Plank Podcast, Ken and Leo discuss the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and how the Buccaneers can build a strong team like the Seahawks and make a run at a title.
How does the Tampa Bay defense compare to Seattle's? And in the areas where the Buccaneers lack, how do they reach the level of the Seahawks?
The guys talk about Russell Wilson, Mike Glennon, roster changes and Michael Vick. All this and more in this episode of the Pewter Plank podcast.
It's been a while since the last podcast, so Ken and Leo take some time to recap all of the news relating to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The guys discuss the new general manager, Jason Licht, and consider what his addition will mean to the team. How will he work with new head coach Lovie Smith?
The guys also run through the defense, and consider the future at every position. Will there be changes on defense under a new head coach, and where do the Buccaneers need the biggest upgrade?
Finally, the guys give their Super Bowl picks, and talk about a prop bet that Ken believes will be sure to win.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a new coach, and the new GM has yet to be announced. So Ken and Leo have begun the process of looking back on the 2013 season, and considering where the Bucs must improve to raise their record from 4-12.
The guys talk about the players on offense who are set to return, and which ones should be let go. Should Carl Nicks be retained by the Buccaneers? How about his fellow guard Davin Joseph?
Leo gives some horrible gambling advice, along with some draft and free agent talk and more on the episode of the Pewter Plank Podcast.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a new head coach, so Ken and Leo are back in action to tell you what they think about the new leadership in Tampa Bay.
Is Lovie the right man for the job? Can he bring the Buccaneers back to the playoffs?
The guys give their opinions on Smith and his history as a coach, and how he'll translate to the Buccaneers.
With Lovie Smith comes a new coaching staff, so who else will be on the sideline in Tampa Bay?
And finally, Leo took a look at Blake Bortles, and shares his thoughts on UCF's quarterback and how he might fit with the Bucs.
