    Never knew the final line of our anthem “and the home of the brave” was followed by “AMERICAAAAAAA!”

  2. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    God save the Queen indeed! Methinks she should be the new queenie!

  3. dallas buc Says:

    Go Bucs!!!

  4. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Its so funny that “my country tis of thee” is the same melody as “god save the queen”. That must have been a slap in the brits face when we came out with that one.

  5. Buc Neckid Says:

    Brits love theri kickers.
    Koenen chokes and hears it loud

  6. Buc Neckid Says:


  7. dallas buc Says:

    D looks stout

  8. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did i just see a pass rush?
    i am still getting used to seeing it in Tampa again.

  9. SkookumSmitty Says:

    3 and out to start! I like it!!

  10. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Clayborn schooling Jmarcus Webb. that will be there all day for us.

  11. dallas buc Says:

    wonder if there will be less commercial breaks since the brits cant stand how there are always long delays in action

  12. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Argh…Penalty yips still happening, dammit.

  13. dallas buc Says:

    joe.. why are my comments taking so long for you to moderate? what gives?

  14. Buc Neckid Says:

    No complaints about play calling, yet…
    but Freeman has not awaken yet.
    Typical slow start

  15. RastaMon Says:

    Freeman needs glasses…either that or he can’t hit his recievers…..

  16. baseman52 Says:

    Anyone have any idea where I could watch the game from PA?

  17. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Force a three and out, get a first down on the first drive, great open field tackle on Hester; not a terrible start.

  18. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Drops by recievers and bad accuracy. This passing SCHEME is working. But our QB and recievers just haven’t been executing. Even last game against Saints was largely unimpressive outside of the two TD passes. 2nd half vs. Minny was the only time all season our passing game got into a real rythym for even an entire half.

  19. Buc Neckid Says:

    I am really enjoying watching Clayborn this year.
    Good pick up

  20. Buc Neckid Says:

    Whiff by T JAck

  21. Buc Neckid Says:

    Soft Defense

  22. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    And even vs. Minny they played prevent D pretty much the whole 2nd half with their lead so basically our passing game hasn’t executed when the heat is on the entire season. Thank God our run game is working.

  23. Buc Neckid Says:

    Where the eff are our LB’s???
    Oh no!
    We Suck Again!!!

  24. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Forte is good man. Id call him a poor mans Adrian Peterson but he isn’t really that far behind AP.

  25. dallas buc Says:

    joe why u pulling my comments?????

  26. steven Says:

    Why? every game its madness 1st half shoot me and Quincy Black SUZ!!!!!!!!!!!! Quincy Black sux! Quincy Black SUZ!!!!!!!!!!!!! but he cashed his check baby!

  27. steven Says:


  28. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Luckily Mike Martz seems even more allergic to pounding the rock than Ollie so maybe we luck out and he abandons their only real offensive weapon. He’s done it plenty of times before.

  29. dallasbuc Says:


  30. steven Says:

    Dear Mark Dominik,
    Do not resign mediocre players (ala M. Clayton/ Q. Black) for big money, DUH. Quincy Black SUX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Buc Neckid Says:

    Have not paid much attention to the College teams/players yet…
    Anybody know what LB’s will be available in the mid first round?

  32. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Oh, THIS is NOT GOOD.

  33. Buc Neckid Says:

    Looks bad for Graham.
    He just kind of buckled

  34. dallasbuc Says:

    talib’s effort on that td was lousy

  35. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Wow. It was risky not bringing Chad Spann up to the big club for this game and now its biting us in the ass. What happens if Lumpkin gets hurt? I hope Rejus benn is ready to play some running back. They used him in a sort of a Percy Harvin role at times at Illinois . He’s capable of doing it .

  36. RustyRhino Says:

    aaaaaai cant watch this game even in england i get to watch falcons and lions……

  37. Capt.Tim Says:

    Quincy Black- by far the weakest link on what’s turning into a really good defense! But we will never be a good defense when both of your OLBs try to hide, instead of trying to play!!

  38. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  39. Buc Neckid Says:

    best hit of the day was on that punt coverage,
    but it was friendly fire.
    Who is bucs #44?
    He looked like he got rung up

  40. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Bucs can’t panic here. Play defense. Key on forte and pressure Cutler and this game is still winnable.

  41. Buc Neckid Says:

    is Lorig #44?

  42. RustyRhino Says:

    loring and price injured???

  43. Buc Neckid Says:

    Twitter is a Buzz about Graham with a “serious Knee Injury”

  44. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    This is looking like it will be one of those games. Cant win when someone gets injured on every other play. GODDAMMN ITTT!!!!!

  45. SkookumSmitty Says:

    WOW!!! Go, T Jack, GOOOOO!!!!!!

  46. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    T Jax! Hell Yeah!

  47. RustyRhino Says:

    and graham??

  48. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Well, sheee it!

  49. Buc Neckid Says:

    Only one RB left on Bucs?

  50. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Knee down??

  51. RustyRhino Says:

    Jackson is a player. WoW!!!!

  52. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did T Jack look like he pulled up lame on that one?

  53. SkookumSmitty Says:

    OMG OMG, what the hell is this, I don’t even….

  54. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    What a crazy 10 seconds!

  55. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:


  56. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another forced throw

  57. Buc Neckid Says:

    Should have caught it though

  58. Buc Neckid Says:

    Barber mans up

  59. Buc Neckid Says:


  60. Buc Neckid Says:

    Barber gets the safety but could not have done it without Clayborn

  61. dallasbuc Says:

    yeah that INT is on mike williams, not freeman

  62. Buc Neckid Says:

    Graham has ankle injury
    will not return

  63. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Seriously this sucks tho. With no fullback we can’t run the power O. Thats our bread and butter run play. I love Raheem but he played russian roulette with so few RB’s active and it could be the difference now in this game.

  64. Buc Neckid Says:

    Is Lorig OUT?

  65. Dave Says:


  66. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    PUNT the ball already

  67. dallasbuc Says:

    no better way to make the brits more disinterested in our sport than to further slow the game down with all these penalties

  68. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    That’s the Trueblood we all know and…well we know him anyways.

  69. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Lord, what a mess, LOL.

  70. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    this game might set a record for most 2nd downs in a row

  71. Capt.Tim Says:

    Losing two backs in the first Quarter! Damnable luck. Lorig was playing really well, also. It really does take away our power running- even if Lumpkin was up to the task!

  72. Buc Neckid Says:

    New nickname for Freeman –
    Captain Checkdown.
    Reminds me of Brad Johnson and Jeff Garcia
    Oh wait
    they did not suck either,
    But were Boring as hell

  73. SkookumSmitty Says:

    I do NOT understand that play call. Throw long, then punt. Even if they got an INT, the field position would have been no diff than a punt.

  74. dallasbuc Says:

    its like dominik knew our offense was going to suck this year when he went out and got koenen. good call GM

  75. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    YAWNNNNNNNN….som UGLY football. So…let’ review. Getting to london early o we won’t be sluggish….CHECK! Going with only two running backs…CHECK!

  76. Buc Neckid Says:

    Shouldn’t Olsen have a play for 3rd and 21?
    The bucs fing them in 3rd and long so much he should have one by now other than a draw.

  77. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    stopping Forte…Check

  78. Buc Neckid Says:


  79. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Putting the game on Freeman’s shoulders with no running game….check! Mike Williams dropping passes….check

  80. patrickbucs Says:

    Glad Mark D. wasn’t concerned we only had 2 backs on the roster:( Who pass blocks now? Still lots of time to go but I’m officially done defending Mike Willams, he’s brutal this year.

    Think Lumpkin can get some yards today and catch out of the backfield. It’s time to alter the game plan.

  81. Buc Neckid Says:

    Stopping Forte???
    78 yard in first quarter
    What are we stopping him from?
    400 yards this game?

  82. Buc Neckid Says:

    Where the eff is Winslow?
    did he get hurt carrying in the Brits Flag?
    What a warrior

  83. Buc Neckid Says:

    Is M. Foster playing today?

  84. Buc Neckid Says:

    Clayborn is the man

  85. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hello is there anybody here today?
    or is everybody at the stadium for this home game?

  86. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    I don’t know who has worse hands… our recievers or our defensive backs. God forbid we have to defend an onside kick. Our hands team will consist of one guy… TJAX

  87. jEsTer Says:

    What a Strange game

  88. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Running Lumpkin behiond the GREAT blocking of Winslow…CHECK

  89. patrickbucs Says:

    saw Winslow wide open on 3rd down, Freeman was way off

  90. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Need 10….call 8 yard pass play…..CHECK!

  91. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Koenen…MVP Again….check!

  92. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Im relying on TJAX to swing the momentum of this game further as he already has. CMon TJAX!!!!!

  93. dallasbuc Says:

    joke not funny anymore…CHECK

  94. steven Says:

    K2 is doggin it and its screwin w/ Freeman

  95. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    SCotty- yeah we all of teams should know you cant rely on missed tackles on short pass plays vs. a Tampa2 team with elite linebackers.

  96. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did that hit the Bear?

  97. SkookumSmitty Says:

    I thought so too, Buc Neckid….But the replay it looked like it hit the Buc first.

  98. Fear The Glo Says:

    Why are the Bears not paying Forte? The guy is a monster.

    Our offense is all out of whack. Receivers not getting open, running game not working and Freeman has about 1 second to get the pass out before a linebacker is in his face.

  99. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Is tanard jackson hurt too?????!!!! Why is Lynch out there?????

  100. Trey Says:

    Can’t stop the run. This is going to be a long game.

  101. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    No sacks on Cutler yet?

  102. SteveK Says:

    1. When will mike Williams wake up?

    2. Can Tanard play offense too?

  103. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bucs sound like THE NFL choice to play a home game every year
    PER Goodell

  104. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    TD by no hands Williams?

  105. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    yeah… and no Blount to spark a 2nd half comeback. SO SCREWED!!!

  106. big007hed Says:

    I am so tired of hearing Biggers is any good….. he is garbage, getting burned every week!!!!!!

  107. SteveK Says:

    Roy Williams!?!? Really?

  108. big007hed Says:

    This team looks lost and confused….. O-Line has no idea what to do and Lumpkin doesnt know the blocking scheme at all….

  109. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Boy does this bye week come at a good time. Plenty of time for Blount and McCoy to get back plus make some MAJOR moves at running back. We need a couple a new fullbacks and a new halfback or two.

  110. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Oh BOY!!!! Here comes are fearless offense

  111. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Trade???? Dominik might need to bend from his strategy here. Ronnie Brown is available.

  112. big007hed Says:

    Freeman can’t get any time to throw it to anyone

  113. Buc Neckid Says:

    WHY does one home game a year in England bother Bucs Fan so much?
    One game a year.
    We cannot sell out on a regular basis
    so why not?
    One more game for me to watch at home on TV
    I admit it.
    i’d rather be here than in the stadium.
    I’m Still a rabid fan.
    I just don’t need the membership card of a Season Ticket to prove that.

  114. SteveK Says:

    We need to score a TD. Now or never Mile Williams! He might be the 2nd best WR named “Williams” on the field today.

  115. big007hed Says:

    @beckles trade deadline is over, no more trades

  116. joe Says:

    I agree, Biggers should not even be on the team, he sucks

  117. SteveK Says:

    Trade deadline is over!

  118. steven Says:

    I am so aggravated w/ teams in this markey…. the RAYS, BUCS they win ya but it is not entertaining for the majority of the game, just play awful and try to win…..PSA this is entertainment not just sports entertain us PLZ!

  119. snook Says:

    Looks like the team from San Fran showed up today.

  120. srqrr Says:

    this could get ugly, Graham out, Lorig looks out, Is Foster out already to? Why is Corey Lynch getting so much play, did T-Jack pull up lame too. Williams not making catches, Freeman under throws Winslow everytime

  121. snook Says:

    Another blowout coming….

  122. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another “off the back foot” Pass
    Freeman sucks today.
    Some QB coach we have huh?

  123. big007hed Says:

    This team looks awful today…. I mean 49ers game awful

  124. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    3 and out?

  125. dallasbuc Says:

    this team looks horrible

  126. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Freeman looks just atrocious today

  127. jEsTer Says:

    freeman accuracy is way off

  128. Buc Neckid Says:

    MAN UP and step into your throws!!!!

  129. big007hed Says:

    Which unit is the worst today? Bucs O-Line, Freeman, or secondary?

  130. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Hold them to 3 here

  131. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Ollie had better stick with the run. They aren’t coming back throwing the ball on all three downs. If the run blocks are there then Lumpkin can get it done.

  132. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    down goes TJAX

  133. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Ollie had better stick with the run. They aren’t coming back throwing the ball on all three downs. If the run blocks are there then Lumpy
    can get it done.

  134. Buc Neckid Says:

    With Blount and Graham out a REAL leader would shoulder this team and at least step into his throws.

  135. snook Says:

    Freeman can’t do much when no one blocks people. It’s hard to step into a throw with defenders in your face.

  136. Fear The Glo Says:

    Oh boy, I just realized that we will be hearing Tiki to the Bucs “rumors” for the next 2 weeks unless we sign someone.

  137. big007hed Says:

    T Jax out leads to Corey Lynch in which leads to big passes…. I dont know who is worse EJ Biggers or Corey Lynch in coverage?

  138. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    hammy for TJAX

  139. Buc Neckid Says:

    T Jack out.
    Thought that it looked like he pulled up lame on the pick off

  140. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Pro Bowl for Cutler?

  141. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:


  142. Buc Neckid Says:

    Still NO SACKS
    Great DLine???

  143. Fear The Glo Says:

    Has Freeman had 1 pass attempt today without a Bear in his face?

  144. snook Says:

    Talib sucks. So overrated.

  145. Buc Neckid Says:

    Talib on the coverage
    HA HA

  146. dallasbuc Says:

    i dont know which side of the ball is harder to watch right now

  147. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Roy Miller sighting?

  148. jEsTer Says:

    Talib is no pro bowler

  149. Buc Neckid Says:

    Stats of the day
    0 combined yards for Mike Williams and K2

  150. Fear The Glo Says:

    At least we have a good punter!

  151. snook Says:

    21-2 at halftime

  152. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Down goes Foster

  153. big007hed Says:

    Heyward is playing BIG TIME football right now

  154. Buc Neckid Says:

    Mason FOster is OUT
    ANkle early in game

  155. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    This game means nothing to me if they lose. Its nigh impossible to overcome all the injuries we have right now. Hope some guys heal fast over the bye week.

  156. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    We stopped them on 3rd down?

  157. big007hed Says:

    Watson nailed Cutler!!!!

  158. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here comes 3 and out Freeman

  159. big007hed Says:

    Finally Olsen remembers the running game….

  160. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Ollie is abandoning the run which means zero faith in lumpkin. So basically we have NO running back. Get prepared for a game where Free passes 60 freaking times with a handful of picks.

  161. Buc Neckid Says:

    Where is the Fricking QB coach!!!
    Every throw is off of his back foot

  162. big007hed Says:

    Olsen = Overrated

  163. RustyRhino Says:

    did we eat to much English food or drink to much London water?

  164. snook Says:

    How have the lions only scored 6 against the falcons?

  165. RustyRhino Says:

    what happened to Loring?
    FB hurt on a punt?

  166. snook Says:

    The bucs apparantly don’t like long flights.

  167. jEsTer Says:

    when did Free start wearring the glove on his left hand

  168. big007hed Says:

    Can Trueblood block anyone today? If not slide some help for him, his guy is getting in every play!!!!!!

  169. Buc Neckid Says:

    Who is this new guy?
    Mike Williams?

  170. boom boom Says:

    wow mike will caught a ball!!!!!!!!!

  171. Buc Neckid Says:

    Yes Lorig hurt on the punt coverage

  172. big007hed Says:

    Mike Will is like 3rd in the league in drops, not a stat u want to be near the top

  173. Buc Neckid Says:

    K2 looks pissed
    Trouble brewing?

  174. boom boom Says:

    about time free!!! lets go

  175. big007hed Says:

    k2 isnt getting open…. he needs to quit whining

  176. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bad Decision
    to throw to Briscoe with double coverage

  177. big007hed Says:

    come on Lumpkin get past the first down marker!!!!!!!

  178. dallasbuc Says:

    some great situation football there guys

  179. dallasbuc Says:

    shttty way to end a nice drive

  180. Buc Neckid Says:

    Great a Fricking Field Goal
    Now we are just five safeties away from winning this game

  181. big007hed Says:

    Offense played like garbage and defense had trouble tackling Forte

  182. boom boom Says:

    good thing we left monday!!!!!!

  183. dallasbuc Says:

    we have only 1 rb and no fb but we dressed some guy named haruman…now i see

  184. RustyRhino Says:

    Lumpkin needs to back up a half a yard and then block…. not stand 1 yard behind the oline he gets jacked up from there

  185. flmike Says:

    Maybe it’s just me, Bears look to be slowing down on both Offense and Defense. I expect more pressure and a few sacks of Cutler in the second half.

  186. Capt.Tim Says:

    Damn, how many players can we lose in one game.
    And it’s not Black, Bayes, or Talib! I don’t wish injuries on anyone, but rather than Foster, Jackson, or Price leave, I’d rather the players who are getting us killed get a lil tweak. Watson, Haywood, and Gautor may be a step up!

  187. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hey BUCS Fans –
    Looking forward to a England Home game featuring this kind of terrible football like this EVERY YEAR.
    Way to go BUCS management.
    Long Flights = crappy football
    Every time, every year
    (Ref. = this game, SF this year, and every game that the BUCS ever played on the west coast – except for their greatest game ever in SD vs. Raiders)

  188. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    It boils down to this for me. We have a ton of injuries but our QB an recievers are fully healthy. If Freeman is a good QB let alone elite he will compete in this game. So far he is laying an egg. Good Qb’s don’t need legarrette Blount to carry their ass to every win. Something isn’t working in this pass game. Don’t know if its the drops, the inaccurate throws, the playcalls or a combination of all three.

  189. srqrr Says:

    that was terrible clock management, but at least we get something out of it, where are the sideline routes, don’t we practice against the Tampa 2 every day

  190. RustyRhino Says:

    Lets hope Williams is not having memories of what the hands of clay clayton told him last TC

  191. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hate to blame everything on injuries,
    we are not that good/deep yet to have so many injured and still expect a good game.

  192. Buc Neckid Says:

    Now i know that TB has a chance in the second half,
    the FOX talking heads are on the Chicago bandwagon now.

  193. RustyRhino Says:

    we need to run as well but our TB and FB out? do we have a backup FB? well we do but he is hurt as well(Graham)

  194. admin Says:

    Joe here,

    To the guy commenting choosing the screen name “Joe” you’ll have to choose another name.

    @Dallas Buc – Patience. Joe’s watching a football game. 😉

  195. big007hed Says:

    @Buc Nekkid LMAO

  196. csidedave Says:

    Where is Benn today. Haven’t seen him

  197. big007hed Says:

    Injuries are hurting the Bucs but there havent been any injuries on the O-Line which isnt blocking well which is screwing up running game and Freeman has not time to pass…. Defense needs to tackle better and I AM HOPING T Jax comes back b/c he is the best defender on the Bucs when he is on the field

  198. boom boom Says:

    has anyone heard if lorig is comin back?

  199. Buc Neckid Says:

    Am i just now noticing this today?
    Does Freman ALWAYS throw off of his back foot?

  200. dallasbuc Says:

    penn needs to block that better

  201. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    3 and out again

  202. big007hed Says:

    My god this o line cant do anything…. they are night and day from last week!!!! Absolutely pathetic!!!!!

  203. dallasbuc Says:

    penn needs to block that better.. however, lumpkin is a bum

  204. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Can we get Benn to play running back?

  205. boom boom Says:

    can we account for peppers! please

  206. raphael Says:

    we look jet lagged… bears don’t ! wtf

  207. RustyRhino Says:

    we should have shown up this morning we couldn’t do much worse

  208. srqrr Says:

    defense might need to score all the Bucs points, good luck with that

  209. snook Says:

    Might be time to switch to red zone channel…. This is yugly

  210. Architek Says:

    This team is all hype and no substance…Youth is an excuse. Take that some of you blind homers that beg for respect. Go beg somewhere else because the NFL doesn’t care about your begging. This is a suspect team at best and I have been saying it.

  211. RustyRhino Says:

    now our defense has to stop them again…… been here before

  212. patrickbucs Says:

    Please run the ball!! Lumpking has had some holes. If nothing else keep them honest, Freeman has to get some time out there. Get Biggers out of there, he is awful..

  213. dallasbuc Says:

    wow.. we can make the saints look average and next week make the bears look like the patriots

  214. dallasbuc Says:

    about time

  215. SkookumSmitty Says:


  216. big007hed Says:

    Nice sack by Clayborn!

  217. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Finally a sack.

  218. big007hed Says:

    If I was any team playing against the Bucs I would throw it at Biggers every single pass play!!!!

  219. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Man, they just HAVE to follow up awesome plays and capitalize.

  220. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    no hands roy williams from probowler cutler

  221. big007hed Says:

    T Jax wouldve intercepted that

  222. big007hed Says:

    DEFENSE CANT TACKLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  223. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  224. dallasbuc Says:

    jones f’d up there

  225. RustyRhino Says:

    blown off the ball every play

  226. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    any ideas on the excuses for the week?…or the next 2 weeks?

  227. srqrr Says:

    consistently inconsistent

  228. dallasbuc Says:

    where are those second half adjustments this team has had to rely on far too often?

  229. RustyRhino Says:

    LB’s need to step up not back

  230. srqrr Says:

    Biggers is a 7th round pick, u get what you got

  231. raphael Says:

    game over

  232. patrickbucs Says:

    Barber hasn’t done anything it 2 plus years, he looks great now?

  233. Architek Says:

    Yeah so is this the respect you all wanted?

  234. big007hed Says:

    thats what happens when you try to force it to K2…. PATHETIC

  235. simeon Says:

    game over

  236. RustyRhino Says:

    well when you louse your starting RB FB MLB & FS no excuses next guy must step up…. has not happned this game… yet!!!

  237. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Should have put Koenen in

  238. raphael Says:

    really didn’t see us not ready to play today…..we are getting our butt kicked again

  239. dallasbuc Says:

    talib just made an effort… nice job talib!

  240. boom boom Says:

    wtf free time for red zone

  241. Patrick Says:

    WOW Bucs! We go over to Britain and we get our arses kicked again! Do us a favor and stop embarrasing us overseas

  242. patrickbucs Says:

    Unreal, looks just like San Fran game in every facet.. Note to Glazers! The Bucs aren’t going to gain many International fans when they have been outscored 56-10 to this point. Oh wait forgot the safety by the Bucs D 56-12.

    Please run the ball going forward..

  243. Architek Says:

    This is why you must have veterans on your roster mixed with youth. Tampa has problems with physical minded teams and they fold when they are punched in the mouth. CaptTim, what were you talking about this week again????

  244. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I think we are kicking ourselves in the butt. Bears aren’t playing all that great.

  245. dallasbuc Says:

    both patricks.. this could be blessing in disguise.. if we suck then they will not want us

  246. srqrr Says:

    Buccaneers are reminding me of the guy that chooses a different beer than his friends who choose Miller Lite, always playing unmanly

  247. thomas 2.2 Says:

    I am enjoying the comments guys. Soon you will realize this gross inconsistency and lack of discipline is due to horrible coaching.

  248. big007hed Says:

    wow they are excited after getting positive yards… shows how bad the offense is today

  249. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    This is nothing like the San Fran game. San Fran game we just got whipped with our starters minus McCoy. In this game we have had zero ability to run without Blount, Graham, AND lorig. Most teams cant survive a decimation of their running game like that. Unless your QB is Brady or Rodgers.

    Lorig is back now so hopefully we see Ollie actually call some runs in the rest of the game. Wont make a difference though if Blumpkin cant make someone miss.

  250. big007hed Says:

    @thomas i thought Okam and Miller/Price were waaay better than Mccoy in there…. how many sacks in the last 2 weeks?

  251. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    THomas- Hey Fagwad!! Did you notice all the injuries??? Of course not. Its the coach.

  252. Architek Says:

    I am turning this sh^& off, this is a garbage effort and poor football. Tampa is making the Bears look like a dominant team. Im out!!

  253. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    By Fag I meant the british version meanging cigarette so you dont have to ban me to protect your favorite anti-bucs troll Joe.

  254. big007hed Says:

    get k2 out of the game, he is playing with no heart or will….

  255. dallasbuc Says:

    thomasthetrain. maybe the coaching has this squad playing way better than any other staff

  256. big007hed Says:

    This oline is disgusting pathetic!!!!

  257. Mcruzer Says:

    Pretty said that you want your defense on the field rather than the offense.

  258. Steendahl Says:

    how can it be that every time our defense gets a sack its for 3-7 yards, but whenever freeman goes down its for – 12 -.- this is so pathetic, not hard, not smart, not fast and definitely not consistent

  259. raphael Says:

    we suck !

  260. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    At least our punt coverage is good…

  261. RustyRhino Says:


  262. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    This is a totally different game with Blount\Lorig healthy and pounding from play one. Whatever. Freeman can’t play without a strong running game. Thats obvious at this point. Lots of learning to go for #5.

  263. snook Says:

    Make excuses all you want for this team and its horrible coach… But fact is they’ve been blown out twice in the last 2 games.

  264. dallasbuc Says:

    “not hard, not smart, not fast and definitely not consistent”… haha, definetly not!

  265. snook Says:

    Typo – last 3 games

  266. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    even the Bad Buc is getting his ass kicked by the bears mascot

  267. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Yeah snook … The coach is the reason Lumpkin with no fullback cant get a running game going. Ever see what Cutler does when Forte gets no yards. Its not pretty.

  268. dallasbuc Says:

    snooky… no one is making excuses just saying it is possibly more than one cause of this horrible play 2 weeks out of 3

  269. big007hed Says:

    Corey Lynch sucks as anything other than a special teamer

  270. snook Says:

    Bucs look tired. Like after you feel after a long vacation.

  271. Kirk Says:


  272. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    No McCoy, No Blount, No Graham, No Mason Foster, NO Tjax, No fullback AT ALL for half the game. Big surprise were losing. But the haters will of course find a way to pin it on Raheem. thomas will find a way to bash McCoy even though his absence is obviously killing us.

  273. dallasbuc Says:

    two official effort plays by talib in one game.. is that a record?

  274. Kirk Says:

    Thank goodness for NFL Red Zone. I don’t have to watch the Bucs.

  275. snook Says:

    So every team that loses their starting RB gets blown out?

    Good one. Injury excuses are for losers.

  276. patrickbucs Says:

    Becklesheart? nothing like the SF game? Can’t stop the run, we can’t run, Willams dropping receptions for pics, Freeman throwing awful picks and way off on his passes. Can’t block, etc. Not trying to start an argument just really looks the same to me other then another 10 points for SF. If Bears ran that pick in and no penalty it would be almost a caron copy.

    We really can’t use injuries as an excuse, it’s part of the NFL. The problem is our depth sucks for the most part.

  277. big007hed Says:

    @beckles good points…. according to Thomas the score would be 45 b/c they could just run right at Mccoy…

  278. RustyRhino Says:


  279. snook Says:

    Who’s fault is it we came into this game on crappy turf with only 2 RBs? Is that Lumpkind fault too?

  280. RustyRhino Says:

    we need to score TD here to even stay in this game

  281. big007hed Says:

    @snook u mean the top 2 RBs, starting MLB, and starting FS yeah that means losses most of the time

  282. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    down goes zuttah

  283. Steendahl Says:

    after loosing out 3 best defenders, its really no wonder they are all other us, but theres is really no excuse for the offense continuously sucking
    lumpkin looks like he wants to go all the way every time, instead of just getting 4-5 yards

  284. dallasbuc Says:

    who is our 3rd string center?… earnest graham?

  285. snook Says:

    Zuttah down? End the season, folks. Get ready for draft.

  286. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    By the way for anyone who doesnt realize that the loss of both Graham and Lorig totally eliminated our running game… learn some football aholes. The Bucs running game doesn’t work without the power O. The power O needs a fullback. No fullback, no running game. How many teams in the NFL can win without even the threat of a running game? Packers? Patriots? But of course logic, reason and football knowledge has no place in the average dumbass haters mind.

  287. dallasbuc Says:

    yeah dude.. his knee is toast

  288. RustyRhino Says:

    ugghhh ZUttha now hurt

  289. RustyRhino Says:

    that look deliberate

  290. snook Says:

    Hey Heckled, the packers won a super bowl last year without a running game. Wake up.

  291. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    patrickk- are you aware of just how many injuries we have suffered in this game dumbass?? now our BACKUP center out??? Give it a rest dumbasses. No team can come back from 5-6 major injuries in one game after having both their best defensive and offensive players already out to start the game.

  292. big007hed Says:

    Dunderhead Trueblood strikes again……… man this oline cant do anything right at all!!!!!!

  293. dallasbuc Says:

    coach morris might take out trueblood’s knees himself

  294. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Snook- yeah retard. Thats one team with the current best Qb in the league. Nice comparison idiot. Go root for the Pack then. you know you want to be a frontrunner.

  295. snook Says:

    Losers make injury excuses. Waaaaaaah!

  296. dallasbuc Says:

    we just folded up our tent

  297. Patrick Says:

    oh yes……..we get a nice pass play, but it’s short once again because of our damn penalties!!!!

  298. dallasbuc Says:

    hey everyone, snooky has all the answers

  299. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Way to read Snook. And they actually did get a running game in the postseason with Starks.

  300. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Snook- Ok Moron. Lets say we were fully healthy and Chicago had Forte, Urlacher, Peppers, their backup running back and FB got injured. Think this game goes a little differently? No of course not.

  301. Patrick Says:

    our strength and conditioning coach needs to be fired……year after year, we constantly have endless injuries! our players apprently aren’t in very good shape

  302. Steendahl Says:

    with the luck of this team, Koenen will do down before the season is over

  303. big007hed Says:

    Bennett played well that series…. DLine looked better

  304. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Good Job Bennett, maybe we should use him more in the middle while Mccoy’s out.

  305. Capt.Tim Says:

    It’s actually a really good young team, but they need OLBers, Better cornets, and Meybe an upgrade or two on the o-line.

    Of course, I’ve thought that was obvious since March.

    All Freeman, Williams, etc. Need, is an offseason at oneBucPlace. Go to hell godell’s lil lockout has really hurt our second year offensive players.

    The defense still needs players. The offense needs depth and specialist.

  306. Snook Says:

    Beckles… Waaaaaaaaaah. You are a huge baby. Do you always whine when your lover Raheem gets outcoached?

    Do you always whine when Raheem chooses to dress only 2 RBs on the historically awful Wembley turf? Especially when one is Lumpkin who shouldn’t even be in the NFL?

  307. big007hed Says:

    @beckles excellent point…. OLINE cant block at all

  308. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Should we call Lumpkin Pitter Patter?

  309. dallasbuc Says:

    so patrick.. are you attributing all injuries out our s&c coach? your insight is very exclusive!

  310. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Game still isnt over haters. I know you want us to lose so you can run Raheem out of town for having the gall to apparently be responsible for all these injuries. What would you say if we came back and won? Would you chime in with positives? No of course you will just disappear. I have faith the couple of you haters are just Aints or Falcants fans trolling.

  311. joe Says:


  312. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    why run up to the line when you had no intention of getting the play off?

  313. Snook Says:

    So 2 blowouts in 3 games. Were injuries an excuse in SF? Nope.

    Fact is, our team is undisciplined, overmatched, and outcoached.

    Only a “retard” can’t see that.

  314. dallasbuc Says:

    beckles.. all the haters scatter like roaches when we win. you know that because we see that almost every week

  315. Snook Says:


    No, its because of all the injuries. So are the penalties.

  316. passthebuc Says:


  317. RustyRhino Says:

    keep hitting them guys we cant run but we should be able to bubble screen screen play with more than one lineman there should be a good idea as well

  318. RastaMon Says:

  319. dallasbuc Says:

    late hit bitch

  320. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Thank god we have three centers on the roster.

  321. Patrick Says:


    i’m sure he’s part of the problem. we’re always going to have injuries!! it’ll be the same crap next year too. a player gets hurt and it kills our team. this is partly Dom’s fault too since we have no depth at key positions such as running back.

  322. big007hed Says:

    Freeman just cant throw it smart today… WHAT WAS THAT?!?!?!

  323. dallasbuc Says:

    that was a terrible read by freeman

  324. Snook Says:

    beckles.. all the haters scatter like roaches when we win. you know that because we see that almost every week

    No one “scatters”. Its just that Raheem isn’t a good head coach. The Bucs won’t ever win anything with a Hofstra safety as head coach.

    Hopefully, we get a new coach before its too late.

  325. Steendahl Says:

    Beckles – i hardly think anyone (few exceptions like thomas 2.2) wants bucs to loose, of course everyone is cheering for a comeback. its not always easy to be positive and its even more annyoing when someone then starts calling you a bad fan ect.

  326. simeon Says:

    Josh Johnson

  327. big007hed Says:

    K2 wasnt even close to being open, what is wrong with Freeman this year?

  328. dallasbuc Says:

    snooky… gruden went to dayton and won a superbowl. stop bringing up sht that doesnt matter

  329. patrickbucs Says:

    beckles… of course the injuries have had an effect, we weren’t exactly winning by 7-10 points and the Bears came storming back.
    No were not a team that cannot run and win, lots of factors as to why.

    This is a game day blog, people are going to vent. Game isn’t over but luckily they have a bye week next week to hopefully get healthy.

    I’m just frustrated the most by Freeman and Willams play this year…

  330. jEsTer Says:

    the timing is way off between Free and the WR’s/TE’s

  331. raphael Says:

    3 ints on the k-s seem route in the endzone this year

  332. big007hed Says:

    Get Freeman out of the game…. he is a liability right now, he keeps trying to force things to K2

  333. simeon Says:


    Freeman is shtting the bed today hard.

  334. higher728 Says:

    Quit whining about injuries, my god. Every team has to deal with it. This is football after all. The Packers won the SB with 15 STARTERS on injured reserve last year. How many do we have on IR right now? NONE.

  335. raphael Says:

    let me guess ..freeman will say he has to do better..duh

  336. Snook Says:

    We can at least agree that no team in the NFL gets f-ed like the Bucs.

    What a horrible call to overturn that. Wow.

  337. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    I want a win, I even picked them today. I was foolish enough to think that the week over there mattered. This team is horribly coached, no discipline, no consistency, no cohesiveness.

  338. big007hed Says:

    Mike Will is non-existent except when he drops the pass and Freeman is not making smart throws at all this year……. 2 entirely different players this year from last year!!!

  339. dallasbuc Says:


  340. jEsTer Says:


  341. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Cutler may still hand it to us.

  342. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Yes, that’s what happens when we get a pass rush.

  343. passthebuc Says:

    bad call. his knee was down before he was touched. as he was hit the ball came out. it was a fumble.

    however, Barber is the only player on the bucs that deserves to hold his head high

  344. simeon Says:

    good thing cutler sucks too

  345. Architek Says:

    It’s time to taste some reality man. This is a poorly coached and unprepared team that lacks so much including personnel and scheme. Guys it’s a loomg season and this is who they are, a competent team. I keep saying this but its a different ball game when you aren’t the secret of the league. They will be ok, they just aren’t all that to be excited for, hence the ticket sales.

  346. big007hed Says:

    Good play right there Mike Will caught it and Freeman completed it to the right team

  347. jEsTer Says:

    Quit forcing it Josh!!!

  348. Patrick Says:

    Better not blow it!!!!!

  349. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Mike Will with a big catch

  350. simeon Says:

    TWO, you go

  351. dallasbuc Says:

    uh oh

  352. Patrick Says:


  353. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    And we’re that much closer!

  354. dallasbuc Says:

    roaches dont like what they smell

  355. Patrick Says:

    Got to get the 2!

  356. joe Says:


  357. Chidi Says:

    Such crappy playcalling. Let’s throw a slant to a double-covered Mike Williams on the two-point conversion.

  358. jEsTer Says:

    can wait to get blount back!!!Winslow is a pain in the a$$ man he has good hands!!!

  359. RustyRhino Says:

    Is BENN hurt as well????

  360. jEsTer Says:

    Williams has got to CATCH that!!!

  361. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Architek- Its time for you to face reality jackwad. If you want an invinceable team to root for the Pack and Pats are there for the frontrunning. Youngest team in the league. But yeah they should be deep in the playoffs or winning super bowls already. JoePackFan is waiting for you and the rest of the kneejerk d-bag “fans”.

  362. Leighroy Says:


  363. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Nice tackle by Biggers, there. So we have THAT going for us, which is nice.

  364. raphael Says:

    stop FORTE !!!

  365. jEsTer Says:

    WHERE is Benn is he hurt?WTF.Iknow J.J. is our only back up but lets use the fastest guy on the field in some capacity

  366. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Seriously. How quickly the kneejerk retards forget that we beat the Saints last week when we had something other than a no name third string RB to work with. Chad Spann will be up on the big club soon and Blount will be healthy also to shut you haters up after the bye.

  367. Patrick Says:

    The thing that’s been hugely disappointing about this game, is that the Bears were completely beatable. They really didn’t dominate us. Our defense played fairly solid, but it was our offense once again that kept making mistakes and not capitalizing.

    It seems like one side of the ball always plays good, but the other side can’t get it done with us.

  368. big007hed Says:

    Dline looks fired up right now

  369. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    3rd down stop, we’re still in this!

  370. raphael Says:

    beckles….we look like crap today !! no excuse for it…

  371. SkookumSmitty Says:

    This is STILL a ten point game. This could happen. Suck it, haterz.

  372. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Capt. tim- I have to finally agree with you that our OLB’s are garbage. Forte has proved that to me. Mason Foster is in place as our new Hardy up the middle. Now we need a Brooksish backer at will. I say “ish” because it could be a LONG time before another double nickel comes along.

  373. Patrick Says:

    Another near heart attack for me right there. At least we got and have good field position.

  374. Snook Says:

    So…. if the Bucs come back and win this game despite all of their injuries, that pretty much dis-spells the whiner injury excuse, doesn’t it?

    In Freeman We Trust. He can bring us back today.

    Without #5, Raheem would’ve gotten fired last off-season.

  375. Architek Says:

    Beckles- screw you sensitive pantsy. For the record I am a realist and keep living in your donut eating world while one week we look good and the next we can’t manage a first down. Yeah real supportive huh! Go homer somewhere else you sensitive-idiot. I promise you this, trust me it’s not a waiting line for this team so the fans that love their team love them. I don’t have to bid with you my allegiance but the more time passes by, the more the coaching and personnel looks bad. RB were already suspect at the RB position and now its undermanned. Keep being a blind ass and we will be discussing the same crap this off-season but I know you will be singing a different tune. You ever heard a song called 8-8 team? (which is not bad but as good as you say, you beatmeat)

  376. big007hed Says:

    big time trickeration

  377. Patrick Says:

    Spurlock at QB? WTF is wrong with Olsen?

  378. big007hed Says:

    Man with some protection freeman actually looks like well….. Freeman

  379. jEsTer Says:

    nice play!!!now lets get jj in the game.

  380. RustyRhino Says:

    @ Lighroy his game plan would be run right run left play action incomplete punt game plan…. thanks but no

  381. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    BTW- did Josh Freeman forget he can RUN THE BALL??? Where is our typical 2-3 nice Freeman runs??

  382. Patrick Says:

    There is no excuse for delay of game penalties

  383. jEsTer Says:

    Is Winslow done pouting?

  384. Patrick Says:

    Surprise them by giving it to Lumpkin

  385. dallasbuc Says:

    briscoe ballin

  386. big007hed Says:

    Nice effort by Briscoe!!!

  387. Architek Says:

    For the record I still maintain my stance win or loss and I have been saying this all season…So no I’m a real Buc fan and I have endured worse with Gruden. The Bucs are going to get better but I am just sick of all the excuses…

  388. dallasbuc Says:

    briscoe ballin out

  389. big007hed Says:

    we got a game!!!

  390. Trey Says:

    Go Briscoe go!!!!!!

  391. raphael Says:

    holy crap !

  392. jEsTer Says:


  393. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    arhcitek- You are the same dumbass who disappears and wont comment every time we win. You do like this team dont you? I post whether we win or lose. You disappear after EVERY win. It would lead one to believe you are just one of the many ignorant retard NFL fans who wants their coach fired after EVERY SINGLE LOSS.

  394. dallasbuc Says:


  395. Snook Says:

    Where’s the injury excuse now?????

  396. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Hell Yeah! Great drive for Briscoe!

  397. dallasbuc Says:

    getting touchdowns despite all that shttty coaching!!! go bucs

  398. Bucbeliever Says:

    gov’t needs to research lifespans of buc fans…with all the 4th qtr heroics, our lives have gt to be cut short by at least 10-15 years!!

  399. jEsTer Says:

    Whos makin excuses? Briscoe best practice money ever spent?

  400. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Arch: I don’t think the number of injuries in this game chalks up to excuses. You said it yourself, they are a VERY young team, and we have all seen worse. This may not be pretty, but I am old enough to remember DECADES when we had no hope whatsoever. Maybe it’s my long view, but I sure like our young Bucs.

  401. Snook Says:

    “getting touchdowns despite all that shttty coaching!!! go bucs”

    Nope. They quit trying to force Lumpkin runs and opened up their offense to let Freeman do his thing. Its what they should’ve done the minute Graham got hurt. That IS coaching. Its the same reason Freeman ALWAYS starts out slow. Duh.

  402. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Architek- Oh BTW jackass- 3 point game. So much for this being a replay of San Fran. And were coming back without many of our best players. Even if we lose you haters can suck it. We will be a force to be reckoned with when healthy.

  403. raphael Says:


  404. Snook Says:

    I don’t have a problem with Raheem/Olson when they let Freeman play. Its when they play for 3 quarters not to lose.

    Freeman is at his best when the offense is fast paced and spread out. Period.

  405. Jackal Says:

    Barber on hester??? Ok Barber is cat like but give me a break.

  406. dallasbuc Says:

    snooky.. so the coaching was good for the TD drives but rest is shtt. is that your take? well done

  407. Jackal Says:

    Cutler…time for you to lose the game for the Bears

  408. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  409. Patrick Says:

    Typical…..our defense steps up the previous drives and then blows it right when we’re back in the game

  410. Snook Says:

    Is there such a thing as holding in the NFL anymore??????

  411. big007hed Says:


  412. Patrick Says:

    DAMN IT YOU GUYS ARE Pissing me off!

  413. big007hed Says:

    Lynch with a nice knockdown

  414. Snook Says:

    “snooky.. so the coaching was good for the TD drives but rest is shtt. is that your take? well done”

    Exactly. They quit trying to force feed Lumpkin – who’s a horrible RB.

    And, according to this thread, you can’t score unless you have a running game. The Bucs just scored 2 TDs without a running game. I thought only Rodgers could do that according to Beckles….

  415. Patrick Says:

    Stop them D! One more play!!!!

  416. Jackal Says:

    Go Rhonde!!!

  420. big007hed Says:

  421. So. Ill. Bucs Says:


  422. jEsTer Says:

    Thanks Talib

  423. patrickbucs Says:

    Not sure how Forte is unaccounted for in any scheme… great job by d to hold to a fg. Talib is an asshole

  424. Snook Says:

    Raheem’s favorite player…. just lost the game for the Bucs. Good job.

    Where’s all the Talib supporters?

  425. RustyRhino Says:

    cut hiim
    enough is enough trash talk is BS

  426. raphael Says:

    way to go talib

  427. Patrick Says:


  428. jEsTer Says:

    And I thought i was a jOke

  429. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Well Capt. Tim- you are justified. You were right . Talib will never stop making dumbass decisions. Difference is this one happened on the field.

  430. simeon Says:

    25 should be benched for the duration of the game.

  431. boom boom Says:

    friggin headcase talib

  432. Patrick Says:

    f*** facemask penalties. the way i see it, we stopped them! they don’t deserve this first down they just got.

  433. Buc Neckid Says:

    Where was this d earlier

  434. Snook Says:

    And Raheem does not discipline him! What a surprise!!

  435. jEsTer Says:

    Clayborne is A BEAST!!!

  436. big007hed Says:

    Man defense played strong right there!!!!

  437. dallasbuc Says:

    amazing that they held to fg. just unbelievable

  438. big007hed Says:

    Does Freeman have it in him for another comeback????????

  439. steven Says:

    If the Bucs continue to play Aquib TAlib I will not watch this team anymore, everbody call in to0 Raheems show tomorrow and voice your displeasure with this thug!

  440. Trey Says:

    That penalty really cost us some time. Still a nice stand though.

  441. big007hed Says:

    How about Williams hitting Talib? No penalty for that?

  442. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Aight, we got two minutes, time for Freeman to shine.

  443. Snook Says:

    “25 should be benched for the duration of the game.”

    Not Raheem’s favorite player!

    But he’s an elite CB!

    Cut Talib. He’s just more Gruden draft trash.

  444. raphael Says:

    why didn’t D play like this all game

  445. RustyRhino Says:

    GReat play by the D (25 not included)

  446. Patrick Says:

    yeah, we could’ve had an entra 1:30 if Talib hadn’t gotten the facemask!

  447. jEsTer Says:

    Are there any good CB’s in college

  448. Snook Says:

    “How about Williams hitting Talib? No penalty for that?”

    Hell no. Not when the Bucs are hated by NFL refs.

  449. RustyRhino Says:

    @ 007 retaliation cost us 1:24 of time+

  450. dallasbuc Says:

    let’s go tampa!!!

  451. steven Says:

    Aquib Talib = whats wrong with Americas youth and the “hip-hop” culture. I can not expose my children to this thug bs

  452. CharlieB Says:

    I don’t want to see Lumpkin or Talib in a Bucs Jersey ever again. Do you think someone would take him for a 5th?

    Hell Talib doesn’t even cover the big name guys any more. They have Biggers on the #1 receiver each week.

  453. dallasbuc Says:

    snook…refs tried to take us out of last game too

  454. Jackal Says:

    Ok so what have we learned today.

    – Missing McCoy badly
    – While there have been some good plays from our saftey’s, we really need TJAX. The safety’s play is suspect without hime.
    – Our outside LB’s are pathetic. Where is Black? Nice signing.
    – We have no RB’s after Graham was hurt. Bring on Stocker???!!??
    – Our OL is badly damaged.
    – Arriving early, allowing our team to sight see, play rugby and hit the local establishments has done nothing to our game.
    – Trueblood still can draw a flag despite his new contract.

    Totally amazed we are in this game.

    Unfortunately in a way we are making this a game. After our last performance in the UK and the first three quarters of this game, I was hoping the UK would ban us from the UK.

  455. RustyRhino Says:

    mister comeback

  456. big007hed Says:

    Come on Free!!!

  457. Patrick Says:


    I know right? Speaking of “hip hop”, that’s the only thing kids at my school listen to is rap crap. Worst music ever.

  458. big007hed Says:

    Man Freeman is not making smart decisions….

  459. RustyRhino Says:

    not today

  460. Patrick Says:

    Well, f*** this crap. I’m outta here. Pathetic job by the coaching staff and this team today.

  461. Trey Says:

    Ouch that hurts.

  462. raphael Says:

    not today

  463. dux0606 Says:

    This game sucked!

  464. Snook Says:

    “snook…refs tried to take us out of last game too”

    I know. They do every game. For awhile now.

  465. Bucsfansince1997 Says:

    Freeman needs to be benched a few games, do he can get over himself. Yes, you could be a great qb, but when don’t really try it gets ridiculously painful to watch.

  466. Snook Says:

    Can’t play like crap for 2.5 quarters and expect Freeman to always come back.

  467. dallasbuc Says:

    i think we can all agree that it is tough watching this team play shtty for majority of every ball game. forget fault because it is comes down on every level.

  468. joe Says:



  469. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Patrick- yeah pathetic job to have a chance to win on the last drive despite all the injuries. Your outta here? Go ahead and never come back. The Bucs almost won that game despite have ZERO running attack. The future is bright.. to all but the kneejerk dumbasses who think a new coach will all of a sudden take this young and very injured team to a super bowl. Bill Cowher maybe? Yeah it only took him FIFTEEN YEARS TO WIN HIS FIRST RING! But Raheem should be fired midseason.

  470. srqrr Says:

    who is coaching Freeman or is it himself, that he no longer moves out of the pocket, he refuses to run, what’s up

  471. passthebuc Says:

    Talib. you can’t cure stupid

    cost 1:5 min.

  472. Trey Says:

    srqrr: I was wondering the same thing. I don’t want him to run first I don’t want him be be a statue either.

  473. steven Says:

    Also I think a lot of our media who are former african american players give Raheem a bias and dont hold him accountable…. how do you put Talib back in…. I am serious, WE need to boycott this team if they ever play this thug again, plus he SUX!!!!!!!! IF Talib gone play, we wont pay…
    If Talibs gonna play, we aint gonna pay, you think its been bad heh here in Tampa we embrace the guys like ALstott, Lynch Tony Dungy, Derrick Brooks… Nobodys going to games because the people that embrace that type of hiphop culture they got going at 1 Buc cant afford to go to games

  474. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Well that was a terrible game to watch with a terrible finish. Idk what Freemans deal is. He looks like a completely different player this year. He just comes off as careless, and Joe was right, two timeouts left and we force a pass? The middle wasn’t there for us all day but they forced it anyway. Even the announcers said they should attack the outside with the receivers. I hope they get it together during the bye, injuries or not, there is no excuse for this.

  475. joe Says:


  476. steven Says:

    Dear Bucs we need classy not trashy thank you

  477. patrickbucs Says:

    nice try at a comeback, this game is on Free and the offense. Very dissapointing, thought we would be 5-2 heading to New Orleans. Lets get healthy, I will be at the game cheering on the Bucs in a huge game.

  478. steven Says:

    Next thing we know Talibs gonna pop a cap in somebody midgame, while listening to 2PAC and wearing a jersey 3 times his size. Alll the while asking why he is getting discriminated against… Sound familiar? Everyday in da Ghetto now known as 1Buc

  479. Bucsfansince1997 Says:

    Even with the running game being gone, the bucs have 4 quality wide receivers (Williams, Benn, Parker, and Briscoe) plus two good tight ends, an a guy to throw to them in Freeman against a pitiful Bears secondary, yet the Bucs failed to capitalize on this major advantage, by not loading up at wide receiver and spreading it out. I would accept not adjusting from a college team, but a pro team no matter how young must be versatile enough to adapt to adverse conditions. It is a fail by all parts of the Bucs organization that they didn’t adjust from their game plan when Earnest Graham was injured.

  480. Trey Says:

    Young or not coach Rah needs to get some discipline on this team. The penalties are a direct reflection of lack of discipline. Being the second most penalized team isn’t doing much to help us win games.

  481. steven Says:

    Wheres the outrage about Americas thug child Aquib Talib ? How many of my fellow civilized citizens of the middle and upperclass will continue to watch and support this thugnation

  482. steven Says:

    @Trey thats how it is in thugnation no accountability, no discipline, but boy can they run if only someone could teach a little accountability… Talib should not of been given a chance to even play… We want rolemodels for our children not more thugs

  483. srqrr Says:

    @ Steven. Really? Talib made a stupid play and has not played well this year, has nothing to do with the music he or Raheem listens to. That is just ignorant. I guess when Mike Williams drops a pass, or T-Jack gets hurt its becuz of the music,

  484. Bucsfansince1997 Says:

    Watching the broadcast where the camera trails away from Aquib Talib after the play, before the penalty, it is hard to say what exactly happened in that play, and who knows what happened the rest of the game to Talib. Waiting until 6 minutes left in the fourth quarter until you try in the game can’t be blamed on only one player. Requiring the defense to step up in the last few minutes of every game is not a player’s fault. If so, we might as well get angry at Corey Lynch for dropping that second pick. If he would have caught it, Talib would have been off the field. We all knew this game was “rubbish” and probably a throwaway loss since it was in London, so why don’t we show the Bucs where all their home games should be.

  485. Bucsfansince1997 Says:

    In Tampa ( the rays should be there too)

  486. srqrr Says:

    Talib needs to be benched, but for who…Elbert Mack, E.J. Biggers, Anthony Gaitor, Myron Lewis, until we draft a quality DB, becuz we will not get one in FA, then he’s all we got. I cheer when he makes a play, and do not when he is not hustling. Becuz I am a fan of the Buccaneers

  487. steven Says:

    @srqrr I bet that is the culture you identify with. I am more talking about the lack of accountability and discipline, have you been to Wal- Mart lately? Its that culture they feel entitled and lack discipline and accountability as a culture how many of your co-workers of that culture dont call in, how respectful of authority are they? Do they care? Yes I am making a generalization but its TRUE!

  488. Trey Says:

    Well guys I’m out. I hope the Bucs have a good week of and come back rested and healthy. GO BUCS!

  489. steven Says:

    He hasnt made to many playz this yr LOL anywayz was K2 doggin it to ?

  490. steven Says:

    no wonder they keep getting BLACKED out! LOL ROFLMAO
