Steelers 38, Bucs 13

September 26th, 2010

Count Joe among those surprised the Steelers put up 38 points behind Charlie Batch — Charlie Batch!

Jeez, the Steelers in first half posted three touchdowns during a stretch of only 10 offensive plays.

Most distressing was Pittsburgh giving the Bucs a 2009 flashback with 200 yards on the ground, with much of that coming when the Bucs were looking for it. The Bucs needed to have Batch throw more than 17 times to have a shot, and that didn’t happen.

No surprise Tampa Bay’s offense offered barely a whimper beyond one strong drive.

At least Bucs fans won’t have to see all those Steelers fans the rest of the season. … Sure looked like a sold out show.

Stay tuned for massive postgame coverage right here.

    We just got schooled today. Freeman did better than expected but not good enough. We were shown up by the backups, backups, backups, waterboy . . . again.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha, lol, at all of the rose-filled love spewed the past 2 weeks

  5. Kirk Says:

    In my opinion, a defeat like today is just what this team needed to see. The Bucs got punched in the mouth, not once, but several times and hand no answer for it. Hopefully the Buccaneers will learn from this and play tough as well. I can stand seeing the Bucs lose, but I don’t like watching a team that won’t fight back. The Bucs rolled over on their backs like a whipped curr.

    @ Thomas

    Hey buddy! Welcome back! Haven’t seen hide nor hair of you in the last few weeks! I wonder why…

  9. Trguy12 Says:

    Thomas: shocker you are back loving life when the Bucs lose. Why don’t you get a life…you’re a schmuck.
    They’re going to have bad games, just goes along with being so young. I liked the way Blount ran though.

  10. MTM Says:

    The Bucs defensive line was offensive today!

  11. Thomas Says:

    I predicted a 2-0 start. Can’t a brother take a vacation? Like I said 2-0 start; 2-12 finish.

  12. Bucnjim Says:

    Thomas is like a maggot; only comes out when he smells something rotten. Until today it was only his shorts.

    Hey, at least the haters will be back in the forums the next couple of weeks.

  14. eric Says:

    201 rushing yards ?

    massive breakdowns in the secondary vs. Charlie Batch?

    Looked a lot like 09……………

    Need more patsies on the schedule.

  15. Thomas Says:

    Jimbuc, bucnjim, hmm?

  16. Thomas Says:

    Well at least the two teams that they beat are turning out to be decent! Oh wait they are0-6 combined, nevermind.

  17. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    All the haters that are obviously now going to come out are simply pathetic. I’m embarrassed that you are a (supposed) fan of the same team as me. It takes a truly miserable person to be such a negative Nancy. You are never going to be happy, and in a way I feel sorry for you. You can justify your feelings however you want (I’m sure you will), but you and I both know the truth. Sucks to be you!

    We lost to a simply better team today. It wasn’t coaching, it wasn’t bad luck, it was just a better team plain and simple. Anyone who thinks otherwise did not watch the game. We’re not a Super Bowl contender yet, and this game is just a reminder. Pittsburgh is the real deal, they’ve embarrassed three teams now, and they were bound to have a bit of an offensive breakthrough eventually. We are probably not as good as many of us thought, but probably not as bad as the haters think. We’ll be fine, we’ll continue to get better, and we’ll win some more games.

    @ Thomas & Eric

    We beat two teams we were supposed to beat and lost to a team we were supposed to lose to. We did not have that last year. I see progress.

  19. Patrick Says:

    Thing I hate about this game is that everyone is going to start being assholes towards the Bucs again. Saying that they suck and that they’re the worst team in the NFL again, and all that crap. Winning today would’ve been huge.

  20. eric Says:

    Ok, so we are no where near the Steelers, playing Charlie batch. I guess that puts us somewhere between the 0-3 Browns and Panthers and the 3-0 steelers.

    IMO we are much closer to the Browns and Panthers than the Steelers.

    Cinci and the Saints coming up.

    One thing we proved today, still very capable of playing horrific football.

  21. Paul Says:

    The ball bounced their way this game, literally.

    Also, I’m disgusted with the amount of Pitt fans in the stadium. These are locals that don’t support the home team. Not traveling fans as everyone says.

    The announcers were all over $hitsburg’s crotch. They knew every players jock size and even knew the specific smell each D-Linemans jock strap gave off. Disgusting.
