Super Bowl Open Thread

February 2nd, 2014

What could be more fun than commenting back and forth with fellow Bucs fans about all things Broncos-Seahawks, plus Bruno Mars and dumb commercials?

Joe can think of lots of things. But feel free to enjoy yourself in the comments section below.

Play nice, people.

    Lets go payton silence that big mouth sherm!

  6. Buc Neckid Says:

    There goes everybody’s grid

  7. Sethb22 Says:

    GO BUCS!

  8. Patrick in VA Says:

    How about this offensive display. Better make sure we go all in for a qb so we can compete.

  9. Buc Neckid Says:

    Just glad that weather cannot take the blame for any of the play in this game.

  10. BoJim Says:

    Hmmm. Denver comes back in the second half. Peyton will make the necessary adjustments.

  11. Brandon Says:

    Seattle D making this a snooze.

  12. PRBucFan Says:

    A passer who can run is about to win the superbowl.

    We need one, defense wins championships STILL and a sitting duck will get killed by these bigger faster defenses.

    The game is evolving

    Maybe Glennon can learn to compensate by becoming above average in other areas of his game, who knows. I love the kid, I just think it’s a major disadvantage

  13. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Lol! All you who think the NFL is a “passing league” bought the hype and now you look like the rest of the idiots. Defense wins championships. Always has, always will. Seattle is stomping the !#@% out of Denver and Peyton Manning.

    Offense, my ass. Defense is where it’s at.

  14. Brandon Says:

    I picked Seattle over Denverback in August. This might be first time getting it right in August.

  15. Patrick in VA Says:

    @prbucfan – what you just said kills me because it’s what will be said by everybody. They’ll say a mobile qb won this super bowl but, if it keeps going like this, it’ll be the defense that won it with little help coming from the qb’s mobility

  16. PRBucFan Says:

    You missed the point lol

  17. Patrick in VA Says:

    Good thing Seattle had a mobile qb that got them that fumble on the kick return. Where can I get me one of those

  18. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Game isn’t over yet-.

    Even so, Wilson is playing extremely well…so even this #1 defense needs a great QB.

  19. PRBucFan Says:

    Clearly you missed the point lol

  20. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    The mobile QB is a coincidence. The dominant defense is winning this game, just like the Bucs did against Oakland eleven years ago.

  21. PRBucFan Says:

    “We need one, defense wins championships STILL and a sitting duck will get killed by these bigger faster defenses.

    The game is evolving

    Maybe Glennon can learn to compensate by becoming above average in other areas of his game, who knows. I love the kid, I just think it’s a major disadvantage.”

    I subtracted the first sentence for you. Makes absolutely no difference to what I was saying, cause that wasn’t my point lol

  22. Jerry Says:

    Defense wins championships, baby!

  23. snook Says:

    This is Bucs-Raiders all over again.

    Offense gets you there, but defense wins it.

  24. PRBucFan Says:

    A passer who can run, not a runner who can pass is what we need to survive against elite defenses in the NFL.

  25. PRBucFan Says:

    Even Manning “the supreme” proves that sitting ducks won’t survive these bigger faster defenses.

  26. Patrick in VA Says:

    @prbucfan – keep reaching brother. Pretty sure this defense has eaten up mobile qbs this year as well.

    Manning looking a lot like gannon tonight. Not a Seattle fan but i’m glad to see what a strong defense can do for you as we get ready to go into a Lovie Smith led season

  27. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Kaepernick can run and Seattle beat the 49ers two out of three times this season, including when it counted most. Defense trumps offense, even with a mobile QB.

  28. PRBucFan Says:

    Thanks for agreeing with me 😉

  29. PRBucFan Says:

    Kap’s a runner first by the way.

    Logically speaking a pocket passer who can run has a better chance/more options to win than a pocket passer who goes down the minute a lineman gets beat.

    The odds are in their favor.

    That’s all I’m saying. That’s fact, not opinion. That’s al i’m going to say on it. Nothing else left to say lol

  30. Bucfan#37 Says:

    How in the world was Denver the odds favorite to win this game? Overall the NFC was far better than the AFC this season. Seattle could not be beaten by any AFC team in this super bowl.

  31. PRBucFan Says:

    I lied this is the last thing.

    I don’t wan’t a QB with a running mentality aka a Manchild, just a QB who naturally has more options available to him but thinks pass first.

  32. Obvious Solution Says:

    Yeah, defense wins championships…. except when it doesn’t i.e. last year.

  33. PRBucFan Says:

    Cause the Ravens didn’t have an amazing defense?

  34. Obvious Solution Says:

    Nope. They sure did not. San Fran was was arguably the best in the league too.

  35. PRBucFan Says:

    lol So your saying because the number 1 defense didn’t win than no other team had a great defense?


  36. Orca Says:



    Looks like a blowout to me.

  38. PRBucFan Says:

    Night Bucfam, out for the night

  39. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    And ….. Tampa let Bennett get away ……
    He only led the Seahawks in sacks last year



  41. Buc Neckid Says:

    Percy Harvin = MVP ?

  42. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    Seattle was once an AFC Team, and Denver, with John Elway, always beat us.
    We could never get past Denver, and John Elway.
    Now, this is payback to the John Elway owned Bronco’s, LOL
    Keep it us mighty Seahawks!

  43. Buc1987 Says:

    Game over. Wow how boring.

  44. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    I hear ya Buc1987, it is boring as hell!

  45. Patrick in VA Says:

    Going to bed. Nice part about not caring about either team in the super bowl, no lost sleep before work on Monday

  46. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    LOL, the REAL Super Bowl was the 49ers vs the Seahawks! The Bronco’s are pretenders!

  47. Buc1987 Says:

    Lovie says : I can win 10 games with a good defense and good special teams.

    Defense wins championships!

    To hell with Manziel.

  48. Buc Neckid Says:

    So Bennett was right
    He Leaves Tampa because he can’t stand Schiano
    Schiano gets fired
    Bennett gets his Superbowl ring
    Bennett Comes back to Tampa

  49. Buc Neckid Says:


  50. McBuc Says:

    Maybe defense does still rule.

  51. Buc1987 Says:

    If Denver comes back to win…it will definitely be a SB record right?

  52. Buc Neckid Says:

    Winning is not Boring

  53. Buc1987 Says:

    Sure Buc Neckid just so long as it’s your own teams defense, but most of America is bored as hell right now.

  54. Bucfan#37 Says:

    I’m loving every minute of this blowout. Glennon would have played better as Bronco QB. This thorough beatdown could’nt happen to a more deserving team than the pintos.

  55. Obvious Solution Says:

    @PRBucfan I never said any of that lol Perhaps you should read comments twice before replying to allow yourself comprehension time.

    I’ll dumb it down a bit further for you either way. Ravens did not have an “amazing” defense. last season. By all perimeters they were about as mediocre as it gets. San Francisco had possibly the best defense in the league and did not win. Hence the “Defense wins championships…. except when it doesn’t”. Are you following now? I’m not sure I could dumb it down much further.

  56. Buc Neckid Says:

    I do not like the Seahawks either
    But have to recognize that most of the people that are calling this game “boring” are doing it because they hate that it is the SEAHAWKS’ GREAT DEFENSE that is the one that is winning.

  57. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    Anyone else like the Doberman commercial ?
    I laughed my azz off!

  58. Buc Neckid Says:

    Doberman commercial is the best tonight.
    The Bud Light one with Ah-nold was better online as a four minute version

  59. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I have a question regarding both teams. I have seen several helmet to helmet hits and the refs have not called on of them.

    Were we being targeted because of Goldson?

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    Noooo it’s a QB driven league this….it’s QB driven league that. HOGWASH!

  61. Buc Neckid Says:

    GREAT DEFENSES are intimidating and make you make mistakes that you normally would not make.

  62. Buc1987 Says:

    Bonzai…yes I believe so. It was going on all season long too with many other games that I watched of other teams. Goldson was definitely being targeted and probably still will be. That’s why I say he’s more of a liability than a help.

  63. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Buc Neckid Says
    “Winning is not Boring.”

    Funny thing. The Bucs superbowl was voted the most boring sb in history. We, as Bucs fans, did not think so, but the rest of the world did.

  64. Buc1987 Says:

    I think Denver should just sit Manning and play the 2nd string. This game is over anyways.

  65. Buc Neckid Says:

    I am just glad that nobody can say that Weather was why Manning could not be effective or was the reason for the Best Defense dominating this game.

  66. Buc1987 Says:

    Bonzai…I think this one is blowing ours away right now.

  67. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Just curious…how many of those 36 points did the Seattle defense score?

  68. Buc Neckid Says:

    If i remember correctly
    nobody LIKED the Bucs that year’s game
    just like nobody likes Seattle this year

  69. BucPuck Says:

    Wow. Seeing Percy dominate makes me want Watkins so bad!

  70. Buc Neckid Says:

    9 points for Seattle’s Defense > Manning’s Points

  71. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Buc Neckin, EVERYONE in the media predicted a Seahawks win.

  72. BoJim Says:

    BoJim Said:

    ‘Hmmm. Denver comes back in the second half. Peyton will make the necessary adjustments.’

    I might have been wrong.

    Better draft for defense this year. 😉

  73. Buc Neckid Says:

    You don’t bet with your heart, but you can route with it
    Predicting a win and LIKING Seattle are two different things
    Hating Seattle makes this game Boring to those people.

  74. Jerry Says:

    Dont want to hear that it’s a QB-driven league EVER AGAIN!

  75. Buc1987 Says:


    When was the last SB shutout?

  76. Buc Neckid Says:

    With the third Quarter almost over
    Who is YOU game MVP?

  77. Buc Neckid Says:


  78. Buc1987 Says:

    How much money are they paying Manning again?

  79. Bucfan#37 Says:

    The bungling Broncos are quite comical in their attempt to look like a legitimate NFL opponent.

  80. Buc1987 Says:

    Harvin for MVP

  81. Buc1987 Says:

    So much for the shut out.

  82. Buc1987 Says:

    Here comes the greatest comeback in history. Just kidding.

    Omaha Omaha Omaha

  83. Buc Neckid Says:

    DEFENSE is winning this game regardless of playing against the Best Quarterback in the League / League MVP

  84. Buc Neckid Says:

    Harvin because his Kickoff return for TD at the start of the second half was the Dagger in Denver’s Heart

  85. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Remember that game, Bucs vs Colts. We were way ahead until the forth quarter? For some reason that just popped in my mind.

  86. Buc Neckid Says:

    Any Denver points now are meaningless
    Seattle is in Victory formation mode

  87. Buc1987 Says:

    yah Bonzai but this game is over.

  88. Buc1987 Says:

    zzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzz

  89. Buc Neckid Says:

    Let’s be a Friend of Michael
    and stuff the MVP voting for Bennett
    (he does not deserve it, but it would be great to shove it up Schiano’s and Rock Star’s when Bennett comes back to Tampa next year)

  90. Buc Neckid Says:

    Russell Wilson making a case for MVP

  91. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wow…even a little kid can score on Denver.

  92. Buc Neckid Says:

    How can 43 points by one team be boring?
    They are shredding the Broncos on Offense.
    Great Defense – Check
    Great Offense – Check
    But both are for the same team –
    The Seahawks

  93. BoJim Says:

    TOUCHDOWN! Denver. Now that’s what I’m talking about!!

  94. Buc Neckid Says:

    Sherman carted off
    I hate injuries and hope the Seattle haters aren’t cheering right now

  95. Obvious Solution Says:

    @Buc Neckid – That is the problem. The game isn’t even competitive. Just one team bullying another around. As a fan of neither team. that is very boring.

  96. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Okay, I’m happy. 24 is coming back!

  97. Bucfan#37 Says:

    I always pull for the NFC team in the Super Bowl, starting with the Packers in the first two in the late 60’s. The Bucs are NFC, my loyalty will always be Bucs first, NFC second.

  98. Horice Says:

    Contrary to what all the talking heads say or write. Defense still wins Championships. Thank God we got Lovie Smith.

  99. Buc Neckid Says:

    I never understood that
    these are the two Champions of their respective conferences in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
    and one just totally imposed their will on the other.
    This is not like a Champion is playing “Sister Mary’s of the Blind”

  100. Buc Neckid Says:

    Seattle is loaded on their Defensive Line
    I don’t think that they sign M.Bennett for more money than he can get in Free Agency

  101. Buc Neckid Says:

    So the NFC is that much better than the AFC?
    Under that rationale,
    The Bucs, as HORRIBLE as they were this past year,
    who Hung with Seattle IN Seattle this year,
    Could have beaten the Broncos in this Super Bowl, too?

  102. BFFL Says:

    85 Bears, 2000 Ravens, 2002 Bucs, 2013 Seahawks. Those are the best teams ever and they all have one thing in common….DEFENSE

  103. Buc Neckid Says:

    Congrats to the Seahawks

  104. Orca Says:

    Dear Joe,


    Draft defense. Love the Seahawks. Build this Bucs defense like Seattle’s!

    Jason Licht, can you build that roster as deep as Seattle?

  105. ChrisCo4Bucs Says:

    Worst Super Bowl I’ve watched in my 42 years on earth, but I loved the dominant “D”

  106. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Congrat to the Hawks. Goes to show what a good offensive line & a great front seven can do.

  107. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Great Game!!!

  108. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Draft LT Greg Robing with the 1st pick

  109. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    Manning has 20 million reasons to be back next year, but he really needs to go sell Pizza’s.

  110. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Draft *LT Greg Robinson with the 1st pick

  111. BucFan20 Says:

    The defense did their job. And the QB they say Is a game manager managed. What a novel idea.
    And yet another player leaves to win a Super Bowl.

  112. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    Before any of you ever call Mark Dominik a “Rockstar” again, bear in mind he allowed Michael Bennett to walk to Seattle, and could have drafted many of the players on the Seahawks.
    Russell Wilson, the Seattle QB, sat and waited till the 3rd round, he could have been a Tampa Bay Buc!

  113. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Only a complete moron and football idiot would consider Russell Wilson a game manager. Please, everyone, for all that is right in this world, stop saying that.

  114. Mumbles Says:

    Russell Wilson helped Johnny Manziel draft stock tonight!

  115. BucFanForever Says:

    So Seattle’s team is loaded with a combo of:
    1. Solid draft picks
    2. Expensive free agents
    3. Good value free agents

  116. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Before any of you ever call Mark Dominik a “Rockstar” again, bear in mind he allowed Michael Bennett to walk to Seattle, and could have drafted many of the players on the Seahawks.
    Russell Wilson, the Seattle QB, sat and waited till the 3rd round, he could have been a Tampa Bay Buc!”


    The exact same thing could be said for 30 other GM’s in the NFL. Hindsight is always 20/20.

  117. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @[email protected] Roof Cleaning

    Mark Dominik name should never be mentioned again. How many Mid/Low round draft picks did Seattle have in this game? If anybodies deserves to be called a “Rock Star” its Schneider.

  118. BucFan20 Says:

    They even said that during the game stupid or did you miss that??

  119. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    @LUVMYBUCS, you got that right!
    How the Fuk anyone could ever call Dominik a “Rockstar” is beyond me ?

  120. LUVMYBUCS Says:


  121. Orca Says:

    Favorite Super Bowl EVER. Even better than the Bucs win… Did I mention I live in Seattle? Aaaawww HELL YEAH!

  122. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    What rules will they come up with now to help the offense? What no press

  123. [email protected] Roof Cleaning Says:

    @Orca, I lived at 19243 11th ave NE Sea, Wa 98155 for 14 years! Go Hawks!

  124. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    I’m just waiting for Joe to spin this into a Mike Glennon slam somehow!

  125. Richmondtxbucsfan Says:

    Sapp better skip town.

  126. joecal Says:

    I think this proves that the nfc is stronger than the afc this year. The Saints and Niners did a better job agains the Seahawks in the playoffs than the Broncos did. I think the best three teams this year were Seattle and then the Saints and Niners neck and neck and then Denver would be the fourth best. Seattle was just the strongest.

  127. Orca Says:

    Build that defense Bucs!

  128. Andrew 1 Says:

    it would appear defense does still when championships. thats was directed at Sapp. Gives bucs fans some hope since we have some nice pieces on defense and have a coach who is all about defense.

  129. BucFan20 Says:

    you mean something like no way Glennon could get the Bucs to the Super Bowl and win in his second year? He does not have the It factor and he is only a game manager.

  130. Tgregs Says:

    So much for Joe’s wet dream of mortgaging the future for his man-crush. Lovie will be going defense.

    I wonder how BD’s wagers fared tonight?

  131. Hesson0208 Says:

    DE-FENSE DE-FENSE DE-FENSE…. Bucs can be there pretty quick with some key moves… Allen, Tillman, & Watkins, & Mccarron or Garapolo to battle with MG8 would be my perfect scenario…. and perfectly plausible, so DO IT BUCS & WE’LL BE IN THE SUPERBOWL SOON.

  132. BucFan20 Says:

    Wait until later or tomorrow you will.

  133. Eric Says:

    They won with Lovie ball!

  134. Eric Says:

    You guys are right, draft Clowney.

  135. Andrew 1 Says:

    I would not be opposed to drafting Sammy Watkins at all. He has the skill to be a darn good number 1 receiver. I think we draft either him of a DE.

  136. Andrew 1 Says:

    *or a DE.

  137. Tgregs Says:


    The headline will be something like “The Death of the Pocket Passer”

    Oh What is Ryan?

    Give it up for Bruno Mars!!!

  140. wes Says:

    wow what a terrible game.

  141. distraughtfan Says:

    Worst Superbowl in a long time. Just plain boring.

  142. Architek Says:

    I guess this shows with all the rule changes – defense can still dominate!

  143. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    They just smashed the #ONE OFFENSIVE OF ALL TIME. So it is ….what it is.

  144. Capt. Tim Says:

    That was one boring, uncontested Super Bowl.
    Unless you are a Seahawks fan- Bruno Mars was the only entertainment

  145. Architek Says:

    This game gave me hope that with the right personnel decisions and scheme – talent development and culture – we can turn around our fortunes pretty fast.

    Realistically I’m saying 2 years and we should be relevant again.

  146. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    I’m saying like next year. It can be done.

  147. Orca Says:

    best SB ever.

    @Orca, I lived at 19243 11th ave NE Sea, Wa 98155 for 14 years! Go Hawks!

    Thanks for sharing that. ?? Elway doesn’t own the Broncos.

    luvmybucs. More stats please..

  149. PRBucFan Says:

    Your a Bucs fan and this was your favorite SuperBowl? Or are you half Buc half Seattle?

    I still think our defense was better and had a better showing in the SuperBowl.

    Nothin will ever top that memory for me.

  150. Patrick in VA Says:

    Pretty sure I was roundly mocked for saying that people were being led to believe it’s a qb driven league by the media and that time after time defense has proven itself to be more valuable. Here’s another example for you. Perhaps the best one yet as this was an all time great qb coming off the best season ever by a qb. He was destroyed by a great defense. Just like running qb kaepernik was beaten and elusive future hof qb brees was rendered useless. The common denominator in all of those games was the defense was awesome. They made the opposing qbs look average at best. For as cerebral as Manning is and all the weapons he has he looked overwhelmed and lost the whole game.

    So tell me again jbf why we need to bypass fortifying our defense in an effort to go get your mobile qb that so many are salivating over. I noticed very little mention of that even though there was a prominent mobile qb in this game. tell me about how you can’t win anymore without an elusive qb and then explain to me how many points he was responsible for and how his elusiveness helped the team in this game. Running qbs are fun to watch and make a good highlight, which is why sportscenter would have you believe they are trending up, but in reality nothing has changed from when our defense was exposing new qb phenom Michael Vick for what he was.

  151. PRBucFan Says:

    A pocket passer who can run ALA Wilson should be the type of QB we try and go after next.

  152. Patrick in VA Says:

    @prbucfan – couldn’t agree more, as long as it’s not in the first round

  153. lurker Says:

    we have the defense and have neglected the qb position. a 3rd round qb picked 3rd at the position in a sucky qb draft is not the answer. using a high pick on the most important position is necessary.

  154. ronco Says:

    @lurker: Wilson was drafted in the 3rd round the same year Luck and RG3 were. Why do we need to draft a QB with a high pick?

  155. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    No matter how you break it down, the Seahawks won with an excellent quarterback. In 12 of 16 regular season games they scored 20+ points.

    Last night they scored a bunch and only a few points were put up by the defense.

    You can claim its a defensive win, and it was (in part), but truth be told, the offense did just as much as the defense.

    What I learned last night?

    The number one offense (team A) cannot beat the number one defense (team B) if Team As defense is playing like they are the worse in the league.

    So as I said many times, it takes a combination of the two…you have to stop the team from scoring, but you also have to score.

    Either way, it doesn’t change our division. We face who we face.

    I do feel for Peyton though. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong last night. He made a few mistakes, but then the whole team did on both sides of the ball.

    He did not look like the Peyton Manning I remember.

    “Wilson was drafted in the 3rd round the same year Luck and RG3 were. Why do we need to draft a QB with a high pick?”

    This is a good point.

    However, I would answer with a question: Do you believe Mike Glennon could have scored 43 points in that game?

    I sure as heck do not.

    Bottom Line

    We have to beat the teams in our division in order to get to the playoffs. We cannot do that with defense alone.

    Well said Patrick in Va. All this talk of needing an elite QB is nonsense. I mean sure it helps, but Seattle was in the bottom third of the league in passing. Anyone who watched this game has to agree that it was, in fact, the defense that ruled the day. While there is some merit to your argument Bonzai that you do have to score, 16 of Seattle’s 43 came from Def/ Special teams scores and routinely benefited from good field position courtesy of…the D.
    “Passing league” my a$$! Defense wins championships…enough said!
