Buccaneers Round Table: Chris Baker Apologizes to Fans
Buccaneers are playing and we as a fanbase deserve better from the team. This is the same man who complained about his playing time the week before. Since being brought into Tampa as a free agent who was supposed to help our all-pro defensive tackle Gerald McCoy Baker has shown us nothing. Currently, Baker is listed as the 65th best defensive tackle in the NFL. To put that in

perspective that means if every team in the NFL played a 4-3 defense and each team got to play with the best interior linemen in the game Baker wouldn’t crack any teams starting lineup. $428,571.43 that’s how much we have paid Baker for each of his 14 total tackles this season.
In the HBO Hard Knocks series, Baker was always shown as a jokester always running his mouth. This seems to have rubbed off on the whole team as it seems our maturity level has regressed. Jameis Winston poking people in the head, Mike Evans blind-siding players, Continual unrest from players such as Baker and DeSean Jackson, the list goes on.
So do I forgive Chris Baker? I say no. He needs to start acting and playing like the Veteran leader hs is supposed to be on this team not like a spoiled 20-year-old living in his mother’s basement playing Playstation all day. Social media is great, but at time players get themselves into trouble with is and this is one of those scenarios. When the Buccaneers and Baker start playing better and acting as professionals, I will consider his apology.
