Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways From Bucs-Lions

December 10th, 2017

Sage Ira is about as disgusted as most Bucs fans. He shares a neat nugget from Matthew Stafford, and plenty, plenty more.

BY IRA KAUFMAN

The Bucs suffered a blind-side hit before the game even started on Sunday, courtesy of a national report that suggested Dirk Koetter and Jameis Winston have a strained relationship.

Then the Bucs went out and virtually handed the Lions a 24-21 triumph that won’t help the relationship between Koetter and Tampa Bay’s disconsolate fan base.

Undermined by five giveaways, the Bucs assured themselves of a losing season after three months of hard knocks and soft defense.

There were some bright spots amid the darkness, but in the end the Lions took another step toward an NFC Wild Card berth while the Bucs slouched toward a division basement they have grown accustomed to. [read more]

Brutal Blitzers

Sackless blitzers in 2017

Forget about the four-man pass rush from the defensive line. It’s brutal and that’s very old news.

The real question is why the Bucs are such horrible blitzers. [read more]

DeSean Jackson

Played (like he was) ill.

Starting Doug Martin Was Senseless

December 10th, 2017

Shameful decision

Dirk Koetter is the same head coach who sat Doug Martin last year when he was healthy and ready to play with the season and playoffs on the line in New Orleans on Christmas Eve. [read more]

Koetter Addresses “Grumors”

December 10th, 2017

“Ed, this Dirk Koetter is a class act, you know?”

With every Tampa Bay loss that mounts, so too do rumors grow that Chucky will be coaching the Bucs next season. [read more]

What An Edge Rush Does

December 10th, 2017

Abused.

One team today had an edge rush. The other team dreams about an edge rush the way many red-bloodied American men dream about Rachel Watson. [read more]

There Should Be Friction

December 10th, 2017

Should be PO’ed.

So, earlier today, Ian Rapoport had a report on NFL Network that there is growing friction between America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, and Bucs coach Dirk Koetter. [read more]

Wasting Weapons

December 10th, 2017

Four catches for Mike Evans over the past two games is nearly as inexcusable as Doug Martin getting the start today. [read more]

How about your pass-rush-free, comeback Buccaneers!

They showed heart and guile and grit again but found a way to lose and drop their home record to 3-3 this season.

Matthew Stafford, bad hand and all, managed to complete 82 percent of his passes. EIGHTY-TWO!
