One Reporter Is Not On The Bandwagon

September 19th, 2010

Bucs/NFC South beat writer Pat Yasinskas, of BSPN, dropped some cold water on the Bucs victory just minutes after the final whistle.

Tomorrow’s Talker: Are the Bucs the surprise team this season? Come on, let’s keep things in perspective. They’ve defeated a pair of dysfunctional teams in Carolina and Cleveland. This is a very nice start for a team that was 3-13 last year, and there also are encouraging signs popping up all over the place. But the season’s still young and so is this team. The arrow’s on the rise, but it’s not quite pointing to the Super Bowl in Dallas just yet.

It’s hard to disagree with Yasinskas, but is this really “Tomorrow’s talker?” No way. Joe thinks there will be far more buzz about John Fox’s future than about the Bucs’ running away with the NFL.

C’mon, Pat.

    Him and Peter King need to find a new profession as they look totally stupid. I’m not happy we tried to kill Caddy today. Do we not have another running back that we have any trust in???????? And why didn’t we try the field goal? Our guy hasn’t missed yet and that would have made it a two touhdown plus game.

    Funk Fat Yasinkhole, he is a traitor anyway. I never liked him when he was in Tampa, like him even LESS now. Talent wise, he reminds me of Michael Clayton, just in the way of someone better. I am glad BSPN saved Tampa fans from the tortured daily reading of his pseudo journalistic nonsense.

    Stupid double standard. The Bucs are supposed to be a bad, bad 3-13 team. Reminded of that over and over again all offseason. The 3-13 team just won its first two games. Good by any standard, except the ridiculous double standard

    Pat wants to be right so bad he’s trying to convince others he isn’t wrong.

    Apple, in another thread to mentioned that we shut down their run. Not so. I don’t know what the final stats were, but Deangello (sp) was running all over us. First down after first down.

    A couple of those were defensive play callings fault though (Morris). Wrong plays at wrong time sort of thing.

    Fox Network is now jumping on the bandwagon…darn it. I liked it better when no one thought we could win. Come to think of it, maybe that’s Pat’s strategy, hehe (not!)

    As far as Caddy, I’ve been saying for over a year that he is not starting material. Unfortunately, we don’t have a good starter at the ready to replace him. We can hope Blount is that guy down the road…but he’s nowhere near ready. He still has to learn the playbook.

  5. Pete Dutcher Says:

    I agree 100%.

    Going to be funny watching the fairweather fans and the fake fans jump on hte bandwagon around here.

    Ptet…119 yards for what was one of the best running teams last year is not bad, and they stuffed the run when it counted.

  7. Jdouble Says:

    What Pat said is 1005 true, but his timing makes him a douche bag. Can be enjoy our victory and get some love for just a few hours? Dick.

    Hello Pete! You are correct, Panthers did run on us, but we shut them down when it counted. We bent, but did not break. I meant we shut them down compared to how they ran over us before. Panthers are gonna Run, and they are hard to completely stop. They have great backs, and a good O Line. IMHO, we sent a message to them when Tampa stopped Stewart on 4th and Goal. The Big back actually pounded the Turf in frustration.

    Agreed on the Caddy Opinion, he has high mileage. I noted Lumpkin got in the game, but no Blount. I was hoping for Blount, him and Stewart from Carolina are both from Oregon!
    Maybe a friendly competition would have taken place between the 2 of them ? Carolina was lucky Blount was not in the game when Freeman got that cheap shot, or he may have cold cocked the Panther Player, LOL
    Don Penn did get in his face. That was a cheap shot on Freeman!

    What’s with Pittsburg being 2 & 0 without Big Ben? Next week is going to be a telling game for the Bucs.

  10. Fish Says:

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure Yasinskas thought the Panthers were the big sleeper this year. Nice detective work, Yasinskas.

    Maybe this will shut him up about the Saints for two seconds and give the Bucs a little attention.

    I am so tired of this bulls#$$%

    We are winning games. Please give us credit when we deserve it.

    I agree Jimbuc, outstanding start.

    Hey the way the NFC is shaping up the bucs could make a run at a wild card. Vikings and Cowboys are looking lousy.

    Well done Rah, two weeks in a row you outcoached the more experienced coach.

  13. BigMacAttack Says:

    The Bucs look pretty good. I wish I could say that I’m surprised, but I’m not.

    Everybody that is talking smack about the Bucs, is just adding fuel to the fire. They held the best rushing attack in the NFC to 129 yds and 0 TD’s. Not too shabby for another 2’nd half shut-out.

    Barrett Ruud has been a pleasant surprise, along with Barber. Defense looks pretty solid.

    If the Bucs keep playing well, the National Media is going to have to start talking about them.

    Eric, just think how good they would be with Boldin instead of Williams!!

    There are two Erics, who is this Eric above?

    Some national sports media is going to continue to hate and point out how we are beating bad teams….but wait a minute….aren’t we suppossed to be the worst team? What posers these haters are showing themselves to be. If you look at how our Bucs have performed since Freeman has been the starter from the end of last year, we are a winning team and one of those wins was against the eventual Superbowl champion Saints. Do not worry about what idiots say and do not argue with idiots because they will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience. Let us enjoy out under rated team and watch the idiots choke on their predictions and break downs of our victories as flukes to stroke their ever so precious pride. Go Bucs!!!!

  17. Ben Says:

    yeah, we beat a pair of “dysfunctional” teams. But thats because we are not the dysfunctional team like last year! I’m not saying were going undefeated and winning the super bowl or anything like that! But its damn fun to watch this young team coming together and I know we are going to win a lot more games this year!

    Thanks for the positivity. Seriously. This team is young and exciting and deserves our support!
