Dixie Chicks Vs. Bucs, Open Thread

September 25th, 2011

OK boys and girls, have at it. Let your feelings be known about how the Bucs are playing against the Dixie Chicks today. As always, any and all commenters who post addresses of pirated streams of the game, even spelling the addresses out, will be banned. You are welcome to post your e-mail address and share the pirated feeds amongst yourselves.

Now behave! 🙂

Q.: But Joe, why don’t you have live chats?

A.: They were more pain in the ass than worth it for Joe. The software for the live chats only allowed 15 unmoderated users. Any more than 15, each and every comment had to be approved. Joe’s trying to do work (read: watch the game) and too may people were b!tching about how their comments were not posted quick enough, so Joe decided to deep-six the live chats for Bucs games.

    This just in for those a ittle bit south:

    Somehow the Bradenton Ale House and at least 1 Beef O’Brady’s near the Ellenton Outlet Mall have a feed form Ft Myers, thus are showing the Buc game.

    I, infortunately, can’t go today (home w/ the kids) but good to know for the future

    how about dakoda watson!

  3. Johnbucsfan Says:

    Hey anyone know a good website to watch the game send it to my email elmentboarder92@tampabay.rr.com

  4. big007hed Says:

    What was Freeman doing with that pass?

  5. sensiblebuc Says:

    The offense kills the defense early again. C’mon Freeman!

  6. Patrick Says:

    Crap!! We should’ve had that touchdown!!

  7. big007hed Says:

    When down that close give it to Blount!!!!!

  8. sensiblebuc Says:

    Pressure the QB BP!

  9. big007hed Says:

    D-Line pressure is huge today!!!!!!!!

  10. sensiblebuc Says:

    They can’t stop our d-line. I love all this pressure.

  11. big007hed Says:

    I am becoming a bigger Preston Parker fan!!!

  12. UK_Buc Says:

    Man being a Bucs fan in UK sucks! ESPN website is so slow to update, and NFL Red Zone (watching through Sky Sports) seems to forget that the Bucs exist!

  13. sensiblebuc Says:

    Ugh. Freeman is killing me.

  14. big007hed Says:

    Get Graham out of the game…. He is completely ineffective!!!!!

  15. sensiblebuc Says:

    @ UK_Buc

    The defense is playing super fast. Blount looks to be running with purpose. Freeman is playing in slow motion right now.

  16. big007hed Says:

    Freeman looks jumpy for some reason this game

  17. big007hed Says:

    Wow Freeman looks awful today

  18. sensiblebuc Says:

    YES. Slants all day.

  19. sensiblebuc Says:

    Great call by Olie. Lets throw some short routes with Freeman and attack those LBs.

  20. UK_Buc Says:


    Cheers mate. Glad to see the D has stepped up, and we are finally giving it to Blount in 1st quarter!

  21. big007hed Says:

    Freeman’s passes are real high today

  22. sensiblebuc Says:

    I don’t mind passing it on 3rd and short but let’s do it out of a formation that at least makes them THINK we could run it.

  23. big007hed Says:

    @sensible I agree…. I did like that Lumpkin was out there instead of slow old Graham

  24. Dave Says:

    What a weapon Barth has become.

  25. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    They need to start throwing it to Blount here and there. Right now they are telegraphing their intentions based on which running back is out there. That is the MAIN reason the offense sucks. Im so sick of the predictability.

  26. big007hed Says:

    Watson is a monster out there… He brings more pressure and quickness than Black does!!!!

  27. big007hed Says:

    @Beckles Olsen is ridiculously predictable which is why i didnt get Dilfer’s analysis of Olsen at all

  28. Capt.Tim Says:

    Defense is plating great! You all notice that Ronde is playing their number one WR- roddy white, on every play? Unbelievable that he’s still our number one CB at 36!! He’s playing great.

  29. big007hed Says:

    Man if this is Brian Price at 65% I cant wait to see him at 100%!!!!!!!

  30. big007hed Says:

    It is so quiet at the stadium that Matt Ryan doesn’t even have to yell to be heard

  31. big007hed Says:

    Biggers is a HUGE liability right now…..

  32. sensiblebuc Says:

    No pressure even with the blitz. We’ve got to do better. Let’s hold them to 3 D!

  33. sensiblebuc Says:

    Biggers will be ok. Julio Jones isn’t exactly chopped liver.

  34. big007hed Says:

    After Talib and Barber it is looking a little weak right now…. Biggers played well last year but this year has looked a little lost or confused

  35. sensiblebuc Says:

    I guarantee they go right back to Gonzalez

  36. sensiblebuc Says:

    Great job. Bend but don’t break defense.

  37. BuccFanInHawkeyeCountry Says:

    Twitter updates are awesome today joe. Got my grandparents anniversary today so cant watch it. Love it. Normally watch games at my buddies on Directv.

  38. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Defense has played the best ive seen them since the 49ers game last year. Offense still non existent. Freeman needs to stop making a habit of throwing picks in the end zone. Someone needs to tell dude its ok to score TD’s early and have a lead. Praying for 4th qtr. comebacks every week isn’t actually that much fun.

  39. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Their best d-tackle Johnathan Babineaux(very good player) is out today. We need to be pounding Blount up the gut.

  40. big007hed Says:

    @Beckles LOL i agree

  41. sensiblebuc Says:


  42. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    right on cue Babineaux’s replacement screws up. Attack him.

  43. big007hed Says:

    Damn Freeman is terrible today!!!! Get ur sh!t togethter real quick man!!!! DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. sensiblebuc Says:


  45. big007hed Says:

    See what happens when u throw it to Blount!!!! Leave Graham for special teams!!!!

  46. Caddy Says:

    Guess they can use Blount to catch a pass

  47. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Thats what im talkin about!!! Throw it to Blount in space!!! its not rocket science and the defense is not expecting it!!!

  48. sensiblebuc Says:


  49. Coaches Corner Says:

    While Freeman is off, I’m glad to see him throw a few more balls down the field early. Hope he connects on more opportunities but this should open the run game earlier.

  50. sensiblebuc Says:

    Uh oh!!!

  51. big007hed Says:

    Keep Blount in the game and we can make things happen!!!!

  52. big007hed Says:

    Stocker is doing nice thing!!!!

  53. sensiblebuc Says:

    How many plays on this drive?!?!?!

  54. sensiblebuc Says:

    He was down lol

  55. big007hed Says:

    Yeah I saw that, he didnt make it…. Give it to Blount to redeem himself!!!!

  56. Coaches Corner Says:

    Bucs need some speed from the HB position. Blount is good but the Dfense needs to be worn out before he becomes affective. He’s too slow to the line. Would really like to see what Madu could do early in a game.

  57. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:


  58. sensiblebuc Says:

    Don’t play around with this thing. QB sneak.

  59. Buc Neckid Says:

    Can’t defend that!

  60. sensiblebuc Says:

    YES!!!! Even though that was a TERRIBLE TD celebration.

  61. big007hed Says:

    Graham in at goal line still bugs me… great call with the QB sneak but Blount needs to be in there!!!!

  62. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    WHOAH FREEMAN GETTING NASTY IN THE END ZONE. MOCKING THE DIRTY BIRD!!!!???? LOL!!!! Seriously Josh is so serious all the time its nice to see him get loose and have fun.

  63. Buc Neckid Says:

    12 play drive

  64. sensiblebuc Says:

    12 play 80 yard nearly 8 minute drive. Thats what this offense should look like!

  65. Cannon Says:

    Clocking in from a pub in Grand Cayman… liking what I see!

  66. Coaches Corner Says:

    Is it our defensive line or is it the Atlanta O line stinks?

  67. Buc Neckid Says:

    Defense is really growing up fast

  68. sensiblebuc Says:

    Now their D is tired and hurting (Dunta Robinson injured, John Abraham tired on the sideline) and our D can pin their ears back…BOOOOM!!!! SACK FUMBLE RECOVERY!!!! YEAH BABY!!!

  69. Buc Neckid Says:

    ATL looks like they are B!tches today

  70. Coaches Corner Says:

    Nice knowing you Ruud!

  71. Cannon Says:

    Daaaaaamn… hello Mr Clayborne!

  72. Buc Neckid Says:

    Blount looks like he is trying harder today to be a power back,

  73. SkookumSmitty Says:

    BOOOOM! Holy HELL!

    Welcome to Tampa, son.

  74. big007hed Says:

    Man Clayborn nailed him…. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!

  75. big007hed Says:

    Terrible play call on 3rd and goal!!!!

  76. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hate wishing injuries on anybody.
    Dunta Robinson vs. TE Luke Stocker = neck injury = Karma

  77. sensiblebuc Says:

    Ugh. We’ve got to score TDs on those man. Stick to the run Olie. It’s hard to throw in the redzone.

  78. Coaches Corner Says:

    Scary territory for the Bucs. They are leading pre halftime.

  79. Buc Neckid Says:

    FG attempt coming…
    2 minute warning.
    Bucs get ball first in second half

  80. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    So happy for Clayborn. Did anyone else notice McCoy’s incredible get-off on that pass rush on the play before that??

  81. Buc Neckid Says:

    Still slow starting but at least ahead so far

  82. big007hed Says:

    This DLine is playing fired up today… They have to keep it up!!!

  83. sensiblebuc Says:

    McCoy disrupts the middle of the pocket nearly every time but he gets pushed by the QB too often.

  84. Buc Neckid Says:

    Price, McCoy, Clayborn are playing great.
    See what more than 3 and out on offense can do for a defense

  85. sensiblebuc Says:

    Eric Weems is a slippery SOB.

  86. Buc Neckid Says:

    Are there ANY refs with a flag left in their pocket?

  87. big007hed Says:

    Why isnt Talib on White?

  88. big007hed Says:

    Foster is a strong dude!!!!

  89. sensiblebuc Says:

    Julio’s more of a deep threat believe it or not

  90. sensiblebuc Says:

    No worries. If we can give up the 3 that’s a win.

  91. sensiblebuc Says:


  92. big007hed Says:

    Foster would beat Whites ass!!!!!

  93. sensiblebuc Says:

    EJ Biggers is no liability sir!!!

  94. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Oh, Dudes! This is CHAMPIONSHIP era defense, today. Ronde!!!

  95. big007hed Says:

    @Sensible one play does not make him a reliable player…. BUT he made a great play!!!!

  96. SkookumSmitty Says:

    ^I know that sounds crazy^

    However, I just mean the defensive intensity is very high.

  97. St Augustine Tom Says:

    this picture is wonderful! =)

  98. steven Says:

    EJ Biggers is a baller and he is on White because he does not match up well with receivers like Julio Jones ie.(Calvin Johnson) but he plays Roddy Wh ite type receivers well

  99. Coaches Corner Says:

    Now the big question. What are we going to do in the second half. Will Blount run all over them? Will the Bucs go into a shell and not pass down field for more than 5 yards. Looking forward to this second half. Need to close them down in our home.

  100. Snook Says:

    Two things:

    1. I really hope those 2 trips inside the 10 and only getting 3 points total doesn’t come back to haunt us.

    2. Why is Mike Smith’s BROTHER-IN-LAW continually allowed to broadcast and cover Falcons games?

  101. Snook Says:

    Biggers > Talib

    Why? Biggers doesn’t take dumb chances. He simply makes plays.

  102. big007hed Says:

    @Snook #2 is hilarious

  103. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Both the offense AND the defense looking good in the same game? And in the first half, no less? Somebody pinch me!

    Clayborn, Price, McCoy and Foster are getting me fired up!

  104. Capt.Tim Says:

    Man, that was a great half!! The D-line looks great-McCoy and Clayborn have totally disrupted the Chicks. Watson playing great! Mason doing an amazing job!

    Only strange thing is that Barber is playing White, Biggers is playin Jones, and Talib is playing Reems or 3rd WR. He’s came of the field in our normal sets.
    They’ve demoted him!

    Offense is showing some life! Loved Josh diss- ing the dirty bird!
    Can’t wait fir second half- go Bucs!

  105. Talib Says:


    Careful, I’ll send my momma after you.

  106. raphael Says:

    free man looks off alittle but he was still 8 for 8 on the td drive…

    good to see the d-line playing better

    Foster is a fricken animal…

  107. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Capt. Tim- they are mixing up their coverages. No one is permanently assigned to a particular reciever. I don’t think they have “demoted” Talib.

  108. big007hed Says:

    Wow Blount isnt getting many holes… we need the running game going

  109. Coaches Corner Says:

    Nice hole for Blount. Too bad the following play wasn’t successful.

  110. big007hed Says:

    Wow Freeman can just make some ridiculous plays LOL

  111. Coaches Corner Says:

    Freeman…cool under pressure.

  112. SkookumSmitty Says:


  113. big007hed Says:

    Then he makes a terrible pass, crazy Bucs offense

  114. big007hed Says:

    Looks like Lofton can’t stop Blount

  115. Coaches Corner Says:

    Getting some nice holes open on the offensive line now.

  116. Bucbeliever Says:

    History says a fake qb sneak on 4th and 1 to throw a bomb to Mike Williams

  117. big007hed Says:

    So what is everyone’s 4th and1 play?

  118. Dan Says:

    convert. @big007hed

  119. big007hed Says:

    We need a TD on this drive

  120. big007hed Says:

    Graham sucks as a runner anymore… Keep Blount in the game!!!!

  121. D-Rome Says:

    Great run by Freeman!!!

  122. Coaches Corner Says:

    The good part about all of this is that Atlanta spent all their draft choices on Julio Jones. A little early to say this but this past draft for Atlanta might just put them in the cellar for some time.

  123. Coaches Corner Says:

    Freeman…needs to learn how to slide.

  124. big007hed Says:

    No one is scared of Graham we need to mix up the packages to get some surprises on offense

  125. Coaches Corner Says:

    3 times inside the 10. No TD’s. Need some work here.

  126. Dan Says:

    were still only up by 2 scores… smh.

  127. Snook Says:

    Why are we letting this team hang around????

  128. Buc Neckid Says:


  129. big007hed Says:

    Lets bring the pressure DLine!!!!

  130. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    smelling like last years game.

  131. Bucbeliever Says:

    6:50 left in 3rd and only 7 rushing yds allowed!!!!

  132. Coaches Corner Says:

    Fake injuries????

  133. big007hed Says:

    Grimm looked like his knee

  134. big007hed Says:

    Corey Lynch should never ever cover Gonzalez… Huge height advantage

  135. Coaches Corner Says:

    What’s Tanard Jackson’s status

  136. big007hed Says:

    FOSTER is a monster!!!!!!!!!!!

  137. Coaches Corner Says:

    Looks like stealing their punter is paying off

  138. big007hed Says:

    Im a Canes fan and I thought Bosher would’ve been way better than he is playing so far for the Falcons

  139. Snook Says:

    Matty Indoors SUCKS.

  140. Cannon Says:

    Now there’s a challenge you don’t see every day…

  141. Snook Says:

    This young team doesn’t know how to put a team away.

  142. Bucbeliever Says:

    what’s the challenge?

  143. Snook Says:

    Does Atlanta ever get called for holding? They hold on pretty much every play. And never get called.

  144. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    he is dancing again

  145. big007hed Says:

    HAHA Lofton just got run through by Blount!!!!!!! Eat it Lofton

  146. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    grimm’s knee

  147. raphael Says:

    get some lofton …you wanted blount, you got blount

  148. raphael Says:

    grimms right knee not the left leg he broke

  149. big007hed Says:

    Freeman throws another high pass!!!

  150. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    here we go

  151. raphael Says:

    benn should of caught that

  152. big007hed Says:

    Figures…. those stupid FGs are going to hurt the Bucs

  153. Snook Says:

    Nice tackle, Talib. You suck.

  154. big007hed Says:

    Ronde = MVP of the game so far

  155. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Disaster averted!!!

  156. big007hed Says:

    Nice play Lynch

  157. Snook Says:

    “Figures…. those stupid FGs are going to hurt the Bucs”

    I said that a long time ago. Atlanta is too fast on offense.

    Great stop on 4th down. But unless Tampa puts up another TD, this game is FAR from over.

  158. Cannon Says:

    This d is making me nostalgic

  159. raphael Says:

    safety jones missed the tackle on julio… snook i think

  160. big007hed Says:

    This defense is playing pretty strong right now

  161. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    blount show NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

  162. big007hed Says:

    Graham absolutely sucks!!!!!!!! GET HIM OUT OF THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!

  163. Snook Says:

    Being conservative has only let to INTs and FGs.


    I’m so sick of this Bobby Bowden conservative crap.

  164. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Graham show???????????

  165. Snook Says:

    Raheem “I play not to lose” Morris

  166. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    oh BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  167. big007hed Says:

    Man Olsen’s play calling has to be the most conservative I have ever seen

  168. big007hed Says:

    If Graham wasn’t in the game on the first play we would’ve had that first down… Graham BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  169. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    of course we are a yard short

  170. raphael Says:

    c’mon D hit ryan now

  171. Snook Says:

    This is a joke.

    Playing not to lose, Bucs. Doing that only results in losses.

    I know we were inside the 10 on that last drive but we’ve got to open it up.

    The Bucs offense is playing TIGHT.

  172. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    3 step drop dink and dunk down the field

  173. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    that b.s. offensive drive could be the difference. You cant lay down on offense with a lead in the 4th. Just ask Minnesota.

  174. big007hed Says:


  175. Dave Says:

    You people ned to relaxon Olsen and Ra…. they are not the ones dumping it off constantly. It is either:
    — the WRs are not getting open
    — or Freeman is getting gunshy since he almost has as many INTs this year as all of last.

    Freemn seems to be jumpy and indecisive half the time, my best guess is Williams and K2 are being targeted.

  176. Snook Says:

    Worst coaching staff in the NFL.

  177. big007hed Says:

    This is all Olsen’s fault.. Leave Graham out of the game and call some freaking exciting plays….

  178. Cannon Says:

    You have got to be kidding me

  179. Coaches Corner Says:

    Ugh! Where is the pressure?

  180. big007hed Says:

    Olsen absolutely blows with a lead… Graham blows period… Wow

  181. Capt.Tim Says:

    Nice coverage Talib- 55yard completion ! Nice!

  182. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    anybody for a 3 and out

  183. Snook Says:

    17-16. Here we come.

    Had our foot on their throats ALLLLLLL game. And did nothing about it.

    Oh well. Maybe Freeman can lead them back and bail out our idiot coaching staff who constantly plays NOT TO LOSE.

  184. Coaches Corner Says:

    Man, I bet the Falcons wish they took that FG.

  185. Architek Says:

    Bucs Offense stinks and it’s plain. Lacks creativity, Lacks speed, and playmaking. Defense is getting better weekly but this offense is stagnent, including the innaccuracy of Freeman. Oh and yes we see why Blount is being pulled! Stop tap-dancing…

  186. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    gonzo show for rest of the game

  187. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Its all about the offense now. When its the 4th qtr and its close the team who’s offense stays on the field wins. The D has done all they can do. The offense needs more than that one long drive they had to win this game.

  188. Snook Says:

    I wonder how long after retirement Gonzalez will wait to come out of the closet….

  189. big007hed Says:

    Olsen better do some things instead of draw with graham, short pass to Graham, draw with Graham and then PUNT

  190. Architek Says:

    Oh and yes Olsen is underated. VERY! So much so his offense looks like Kentucky Wildcats offense.

  191. Snook Says:

    Here comes a 3 and out!

    2 runs up the middle and a 4 yard pass to Graham!

    THEN PUNT!!!

    Olson for president.

  192. Capt.Tim Says:

    Not more GRAHAM!! Damn it!

  193. big007hed Says:

    Olsen call a pass play farther than 5 yards… PLEASE for the love of God

  194. Coaches Corner Says:

    This guy Benn is either a hero or the goat. Never average. This guy needs some consistency.

  195. big007hed Says:

    My god this offense is so boring without Blount!!!!

  196. Coaches Corner Says:

    Was that Lumpkin out there? Does he still play with our team?

  197. big007hed Says:

    OLSEN calls the worst game… Come on defense bail this offense out

  198. Snook Says:

    What a BS call on Benn. Tampa would’ve NEVER gotten that call today.

    Here comes the Falcons.

    17-16 and Ryan will look like Brady.

  199. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    See 3 and outs are what is holding this team back. Don’t need to score on every drive just get some more first downs man. First or second half it doesnt matter. Cant have so many 3 and outs.

  200. big007hed Says:

    A lame duck pass and Biggers still could not get to it…

  201. Snook Says:

    Did they change the rules on holding?

  202. big007hed Says:

    If we lose this game it is on Olsen….

  203. Snook Says:

    Just hope we have enough time to run a panic 2 minute offense.

  204. big007hed Says:

    Haven’t seen Price in much in the second half

  205. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    AND they are eating clock

  206. Snook Says:

    “If we lose this game it is on Olsen….”

    Nope. Its on Raheem.

    It starts with the head coach. The Bucs lack any sort of killer mentality. And it starts up top.

  207. Coaches Corner Says:

    Where is Rhonde?

  208. big007hed Says:

    Get Biggers off of White… He sucks so bad

  209. raphael Says:

    biggers sucks are you kidding he cant cover white

  210. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    where is the D-Line in the 2nd half

  211. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  212. big007hed Says:

    So far Biggers cant cover White or Calvin Johnson or any other big name WR…. What good is he?

  213. big007hed Says:

    Wow here we go….

  214. Coaches Corner Says:

    Talib…over 100 yards on Julio. Monte Kiffin is pissed.

  215. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    geez…just give them the 6

  216. big007hed Says:


  217. big007hed Says:

    Brian Price is killing it

  218. Coaches Corner Says:

    Biggers…best out of bounce receiver I’ve ever seen.

  219. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    oh boy……another 3 and out coming

  220. big007hed Says:

    Olsen better start calling plays like they are behind in the game

  221. raphael Says:

    a few first downs and we win….. C’MON OFFENSE

  222. Snook Says:

    Atlanta knows Raheem is a joke.

    They kicked a FG there because they KNOW they’re going to get the ball back.

  223. Snook Says:

    Talib would’ve tried to pick that throw and White would’ve had a TD.

    Biggers breaks it up.

    Biggers >>>>>> Talib

    No question.

  224. Dan Says:

    blount time.

    Where is the penaly flag??????????

  226. Architek Says:

    I am so proud of the young defense. Message to the offense, play with some heart! The D-Line is showing promise (secondary suspect of course). I can tell you all now, all week I am going to dump on this offense. It’s pathetic!

  227. big007hed Says:

    See why they should keep giving it to Blount??? It works!!!!

  228. Snook Says:

    Love how Billick defends the illegal hit. Classic,

  229. big007hed Says:

    @Snook it wasnt helpful to the Falcons

  230. Snook Says:

    Who wants to be we give it to Graham here on 3rd down instead of Blount?

  231. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Architek…the offense is actually very good in my opinion, it’s Olson’s conservative play calling in totally inappropriate situations that’s frustrating.

  232. Dan Says:

    not me.

  233. Architek Says:

    I was a helmet to helmet shot and it’s illegal!

  234. big007hed Says:

    I will never stop hating on Olsen if Graham is in the game right now!!!!

  235. raphael Says:

    cornrback is our weekness imo

  236. big007hed Says:

    Terrible spot!!!!!!!!

  237. big007hed Says:

    WOW I cant believe how bad that spot was

  238. Snook Says:

    This is going to be a painful loss.

  239. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    zebras doing there best to rob us of this one.

  240. Architek Says:

    I couldn’t disagree with that but I am so not impressed with Freeman throws, accuracy, and all together this is the same offense from the pre-season. LITERALLY!

  241. raphael Says:

    clearly a first down we WIN your wrong snook

  242. Snook Says:

    “WOW I cant believe how bad that spot was”

    I can. I live in Atlanta and watch all of their games. They get all of the calls. And they NEVER get called for holding unless its just blatantly obvious.

    Its amazing.

  243. Snook Says:

    “clearly a first down we WIN your wrong snook”

    Nope. Atlanta gets all the calls. You should’ve learned from the no-call on the helmet Freeman hit.

  244. m wesley Says:

    Billicks a jackass,maybe he is Thomas.

  245. big007hed Says:

    I say if it is short, QB sneak…. Freeman has never been stopped

  246. Snook Says:

    You think they won 13 games last year because they were good?

    Nope. The refs LOVE them.

  247. big007hed Says:


  248. Greg Says:

    Snook called it, Atlanta doesn’t get called unless it’s blatantly obvious, at least we caught a break!

  249. Snook Says:

    Once again, the Bucs offense only plays one half.

  250. raphael Says:

    snook was wrong BUCS WIN YEAH BABY

  251. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Love it that we beat the zebras. Sad that we had to beat two teams in this 4th qtr. The Falcons AND the Zebras.

  252. Architek Says:

    All is not lost but this offense has many drafts and personnel moves to go to get to the contender level. I honestly thought that the offense would open up and strike more but its still a descendant of Gruden’s hog-food sets. I hate the Falcons but I must admit their playcalling is very good. Their defense is like our offense. Shallow! Good win for the young Bucs. Welcome to the league D-Line. I am proud of you.

  253. raphael Says:

    great call to call em offsides … that spot was hideous though

  254. Snook Says:

    “snook was wrong BUCS WIN YEAH BABY”

    Yep. And they won AGAIN in spite of Raheem “I play not to lose” Morris.

    This game should’ve been a blowout. But Raheem lacks any killer instinct.

  255. Capt.Tim Says:

    YESSSS!!!! GO BUCS!! game ball to the D-line ! Foster and Dakota both played great- so did haywood once Hayes gotta outta there! Real happy!!!

  256. raphael Says:

    find another team snook if you don’t like the bucs or raheem…

    Raheems coaching won the game

  257. raphael Says:

    Foster is for REAL

  258. Snook Says:

    “find another team snook if you don’t like the bucs or raheem…

    Raheems coaching won the game”

    I love the Bucs. Hate Raheem.

    Raheem isn’t the Bucs. He’s just their idiot coach.

    And Raheem’s coaching has never won any games. Freeman wins games. Not Raheem and his play not to lose attitude.

    “And Raheem’s coaching has never won any games. Freeman wins games. Not Raheem and his play not to lose attitude.”

    I may be a ‘know nothing’ , but I thing Rah’s playcalling on Defense was great. Yes, they bent, and yes they gave up that late TD, but the D-line pressure was phenominal untill the ‘Chicks’ went to ‘Max Protect’ in the second half. And the Secondary did just enough to get the win. I love the way this D grows with every game. Yes, there are deficiencies, but they’ll wither away as this team grows up together. As has been said, Rah could take this team to the SB, & win it & some of these guys would still be hyper-critical!!!

    “You think they won 13 games last year because they were good?

    Nope. The refs LOVE them.”


    Wow, what an absolutely idiotic comment! Yeah buddy, they won 13 games because of the referees. My goodness, do you really know how stupid you sound? So I guess if the refs liked the Panthers, they would have won 13 last year? People who have such stupid arguments aren’t even worth arguing with, because they grasp for any little shred of an excuse to support their worthless argument.

    I’m just glad I’m not such a miserable person that I have to criticize someone even when we win. To say Raheem doesn’t win games for us is almost as stupid as your previous comment. We have the youngest team in the NFL, with a roster nowhere near as talented (yet) as the Falcons or Saints, and we still are contending. But no, Morris probably just sits around with no idea what he is doing.
