    Mr.Madu….runs todays !

  2. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Come on Rasta….we are talking Greg Olsen here

  3. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Madu was very impressive in some pre season games. he can be a change of pace back with Blount.
    I wonder if he can catch ?

  4. Freeman4President Says:

    LGB FTW! Feed The Beast!

  5. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Im not sure I saw anything impressive from Madu in preseason Apple. Dude is active as an insurance policy against Blount getting injured again. Quite frankly if the Bucs have to make a claim on that policy then its game over.

  6. Joe Says:

    FYI guys, Vilma is out.

  7. sensiblebuc Says:

    Just re-watched the Bears game…

    1) Brees is going to rack up a ton of yards on us. There’s no getting around it. We don’t have the talent in the secondary or the consistency in the pass rush to shut him down completely. HOWEVER, if we can stop the big play and limit them to the underneath routes we can hold them to 21-24 points

    2) We’re ALMOST there offensively. Too many easy drops, too many needless penalties, too many under/overthrown balls by Starship.

    3) We need a big play early. We ride the emotional roller coaster as a team. If we harness that by coming out guns blazing early on we can take the crowd out of it and grind the Saints D into a pulp with the Blount/Playaction gameplan.

  8. Capt.Tim Says:

    Sensiblebuc- uh, why didn’t you watch the Bucs- Saints game??? Seems like that would have been more informative. And before you get to worried- we beat them.

  9. Capt.Tim Says:

    Anyone know who is inactive today?

  10. Fear The Glo Says:

    Why the hell is Zuttah inactive today?

  11. Cannon Says:

    Clocking in from Grand Cayman

  12. Buc Neckid Says:

    Freeman with sprained right thumb

  13. Patrick Says:

    We can’t have a 3 and out here

  14. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Like Williams….3 and OUT!

  15. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Fowlclowns already up 7-0

  16. shaggy Says:

    hope williams and porter are OK

  17. sensiblebuc Says:

    @ Capt. Tim

    The Bears game was the only one I hadn’t seen. I wanted to see the bad so I could temper my positive vibes from the 1st Saints game lol

  18. sensiblebuc Says:

    Did anybody see this posted on Grantland? It gave me a good chuckle:

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Don’t fool yourself by looking at their record. This is not a good football team. They have a winning record because they’re 4-2 in games decided by a touchdown or less. It could very well be 5-0 with a couple more twists, as the Lions blew them out before giving up a garbage-time touchdown in Week 1, and the Bears basically tried to give the London game away to Tampa, only for the Bucs to try to give it right back. Their record is totally unsupported by their underlying level of play, as this is a team that’s been outscored by 38 points in their seven games. Tampa is 24th in both points scored and points allowed per game. They are really playing like a 6-10 team right now. Tampa’s record is about to reflect it, too, as the Bucs will face the Saints, Texans, and Packers over the next three weeks. It took four takeaways and Sean Payton’s torn ACL for the Buccaneers to beat the Saints last time around. It’s probably not going to happen again. The Panthers are a better team than these Bucs right now.

  19. sensiblebuc Says:

    @ Fear The Glo

    Zuttah still getting over that knee injury from London I believe.

  20. Steendahl Says:

    despite him being a saint, i hope Tracy Porter is okay!

  21. Capt.Tim Says:

    SensibleBuc- lol! Now It makes sense.

  22. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Telling drive here

  23. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    3 and out….nice pass….

  24. raphael Says:

    lets go defense

  25. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Speaking of telling drives…here comes one right here

  26. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    2 plays right up the middle 10 yards

  27. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    3 running plays 15 yards right up the gut

  28. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    lol..so who is going to run the ball down WHOSE throats?

  29. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    even the announcers are bored

  30. Thomas 2.2 Says:


  31. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    WOW….this is MORE than slow

  32. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Biggers sucks

  33. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    hold them to 6 here

  34. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Strange play call by the Saints, nice play by Mack

  35. sensiblebuc Says:

    That’s a win baby!

  36. Buc Neckid Says:

    Lucky break number two for the Bucs

  37. Capt.Tim Says:

    “Team strength” secondary- lmao

  38. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Elbert Mack stepping it up bigtime this year, never thought I’d hear myself saying that.

  39. sensiblebuc Says:

    Next 3 play calls: Blount right. Blount left. Blount up the middle.

  40. James Says:

    Nice third down stop and good job Kasay hitting the upright thanks. Any one else notice tjack has had two interception opportunities and one sack but missed all 3. If he hadnt been suspended those would have been turnovers.

  41. Buc Neckid Says:

    Air Blount again

  42. Buc Neckid Says:

    Run It All Day

  43. ron Says:


  44. Buc Neckid Says:

    At least he did not force an interception

  45. sensiblebuc Says:

    @ Neckid

    Exactly. lol

  46. Thomas 2.2 Says:


  47. sensiblebuc Says:

    I don’t mind that.

  48. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Had a chance to force a 6 point swing right there, take the 3, what is he doing?

  49. Buc Neckid Says:

    Not bad for field position
    but for my Buc Heavy Fantasy team

  50. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Go Greg…Go Greg…Go Greg

  51. raphael Says:

    thomas is idiotic….nice try BUCS !

  52. Buc Neckid Says:

    I hate it when we try to strip than tackle

  53. sensiblebuc Says:

    The play call was fine…EG wouldve gotten that 1st down.

  54. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Right thru mccoy’s gap

  55. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  56. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    How fat has McCoy gotten?

  57. James Says:

    Bad decision to go for it on 4th down without doing a qb sneak. I would have took the 3 points

  58. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Our vaunted Swiss cheese defense

  59. Buc Neckid Says:

    T Jack is looking like he needs a preseason

  60. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  61. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Toast biggers

  62. sensiblebuc Says:

    Great pass. Indefensible.

  63. big007hed Says:

    My goodness please get Biggers off the field…. HE IS TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!

  64. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Dare i say it?……3 and out?

  65. raphael Says:

    Foster was out of position twice on that drive…..

  66. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Need an answer here bad. Instead of a +6 point swing, it turns into a -10 swing.

  67. Leighroy Says:

    I dont mind the call to go for it on 4th down, even though that just ended up costing us a touchdown. But what the hell is that playcall? THATS when you go to PA pass. Also Blount should have bounced that outside and didn’t. He is very physically gifted but he needs to work on vision a little more, its quite obvious now.

  68. srqrr Says:

    that was easy

  69. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Thats ok…Raheem will take the blame

  70. Buc Neckid Says:

    No original Play calling

  71. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    yawn…8 man front..begging Freeman to beat them

  72. Buc Neckid Says:

    Our only Passing play is short dump offs

  73. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    and here come the flags

  74. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    wooo…hooo..here come the 5 yard passes

  75. SkookumSmitty Says:

    That shut up the crowd.

  76. Buc Neckid Says:

    Underneath all day long,
    It’s all they are giving us

  77. steven Says:

    Mike Williams = Mike Clayton #2

  78. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Also, on the replay, Free did a good job of looking ‘off’ his target.

  79. sensiblebuc Says:

    *Obnoxious Roy Williams First Down Signal*

  80. Thomas 2.2 Says:


  81. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whew….some breathing room to punt

  82. Buc Neckid Says:

    Stupid Penalty

  83. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    thats ok….we can punt and pin them back

  84. raphael Says:

    Freeman is money today…just watch

  85. raphael Says:

    lol at all the buc haters here…..lol

  86. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    put the ball in the hands of our MVP….Koenen

  87. steven Says:

    really been outcoached this game

  88. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    With McCoy back they gave up 47 yards rushing in the 1st quarter

  89. big007hed Says:

    Greg Olsen calls the most predictable game plan….

  90. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    put okam in the middle to shore up the run game…oh wait

  91. srqrr Says:

    Bucs cannot win one on one battles without penalties

  92. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whew…breathing room again to punt

  93. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another stupid penalty

  94. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Horribly coached team

  95. Leighroy Says:

    Kellen, that’s terrible

  96. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  97. Fear The Glo Says:

    This has got to be the sloppiest damn team I have ever seen.

  98. Buc Neckid Says:

    Go for it

  99. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Go for it again lol

  100. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    go for it again

  101. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    If you have seen a rah practice you know why they play like this

  102. Buc Neckid Says:

    Makes sense to punt…

  103. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    need to back up the tough talk their free

  104. Leighroy Says:

    Freeman got thrown after the throw, that was another blown personal foul that never gets called on him, then the reff chewed freeman out for chasing after the guy. What gives???

  105. big007hed Says:

    Is something wrong with Barth? He has this range….

  106. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    here is the game right here

  107. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    hold them to 3

  108. sensiblebuc Says:

    I love the emotion by Freeman.

  109. sensiblebuc Says:

    Bye bye GMC.

  110. raphael Says:

    thomas and fat scotty are HOMO’s

  111. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    barth wasnt listed on the injury report…..oh wait….

  112. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Great rushing game improvement

  113. sensiblebuc Says:

    No help from the backside.

  114. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whom….ivory for game ball?

  115. big007hed Says:

    Clayborn is not effective today at all… he is out of position and getting blown off the line

  116. steven Says:

    outcoached, outhustled, outexecuted, its that simple starting to really question this coaching staff

  117. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    hold them to 6

  118. srqrr Says:

    Okam is out this game

  119. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Exactly steven

  120. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    21-0 clowns

  121. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Where is the defense? Do they practice?

  122. Buc Neckid Says:

    That was TOO easy
    Looks like the Bears game

  123. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  124. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Thing is….the saints arent doing anything fancy….just like the bears

  125. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Does anyone really think rah has a clue? Division at stake, Coming off a bye week with 13 days to plan and this is what we get. How do you explain that?

  126. big007hed Says:

    Tackling is pathetic this game….

  127. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    screen passes and runs up the middle….things we cant seem to get a grasp on on either side of the ball

  128. steven Says:

    I hate that I cannot stand to watch this team for the majority of there games and if this defense id indicative of Raheem we got issues and Aqib Talib sux!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he does not play hard and K2 is SO undisciplined

  129. Buc Neckid Says:

    Too much about the Bucs Hating the Saints.
    They look like they are playing like they Hate the Saints
    Instead trying to kick their asses
    Difference between a Good team and a Youngry team

  130. Buc Neckid Says:

    Great Return

  131. snook Says:

    Thomas… I can’t wait to hear the excuses from Raheem sympathizers after another blowout.

  132. srqrr Says:

    where is the urgency with this team, the second half

  133. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I think we are starting to see why Raheem’s contract hasnt been extended.

  134. sensiblebuc Says:

    Nice return!

  135. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Whew….SWEET…..punting room

  136. sensiblebuc Says:

    Ugh leave Blount on the field on 3rd downs

  137. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    3 yard pass play here

  138. steven Says:

    Seriously why is LeGarrette Blount out of the game on 3rd and 3 ? This is just plain bad coachin jeez !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  139. sensiblebuc Says:

    Lumpkin was wide open. Jiminy Christmas.

  140. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  141. steven Says:

    i believ what is going on with Freeman is more indicative of the lack in coaching than in Freeman himself, he usually is left with nothing to do

  142. raphael Says:

    lol at the haters

  143. chargedcbh Says:

    This might be the worse offense in the NFL, we HAVE to get someone in here who understands that you don’t have to have 2 TE’s on 1st and 2nd down, someone who didn’t go to the shred bin and tape together Gruden’s 2 yard and a cloud of dust offense. This is the Bucs offense, 1st down, 2 TE’s, run the ball, get 3 yards, 2nd down, 2 TE’s run the ball get a yard b/c they have 10 men in the box. Now its 3rd down and 6, EVERYONE knows your going to throw, trips formation, throw it 2 yards praying that someone can make a play, now PUNT! Olsen will be FIRED after the year! Hey what about trying a freakin draw play to Blount? FYI, you can run the ball out of many different formations…..

  144. sensiblebuc Says:

    I’ll take it!

  145. snook Says:

    Face it folks, this is a bad team with a bad coach who got lucky 3 times and player the Colts.

  146. Buc Neckid Says:

    GMC out of game with an Arm Injury.

  147. Leighroy Says:

    How is that NOT A PERSONAL FOUL!?!?!??!?!?!!? IN this version of the NFL protecting quarterbacks, Joe, Please tell me!!!!!1

  148. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    time for the bucs to cash in?….LMAO

  149. Fear The Glo Says:

    I bet about 85% of our drives this year on offense we have had at least 1 penalty.

  150. Buc Neckid Says:

    Saints are just owning the Bucs

  151. Dondeuce Says:

    Sorry coaching staff is really beginning to look questionable this team is undisciplined, uninspired and flat out going backwards

  152. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    starting to force the ball again…I smell pic-6

  153. SkookumSmitty Says:

    How was that hit by Dunbar NOT roughing the passer? I have seen a couple of non-calls, here. Not trying to make excuses, but JEEZ!

  154. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    especially after the time out

  155. sensiblebuc Says:

    YES. Bust their as*es Josh.

  156. joe Says:


  157. snook Says:

    Rah is a joke. 2 weeks of prep and this is what we get? Hilarious.

  158. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Freeman getting advice from the sidelines = pic 6

  159. raphael Says:

    must be saints fans here…cause there not buc fans …lots of hate

  160. Buc Neckid Says:

    No zip on that pass.

  161. Jrock (mobile) Says:

    Seemed like a phantom false start call to me. But other than that the offense is really killing themselves

  162. Leighroy Says:

    why always 3 yard drag routes on 3rd and 8??

  163. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whhooooo hoooo….another 7 yard pass like that and a punt

  164. Leighroy Says:

    like EVERY time

  165. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    sorry…4 yard play

  166. snowman Says:

    Have you noticed how the defensive line lines up? Does Raheem tell them to do that? It sucks..

  167. Architek Says:

    Thomas I must admit you have an argument for this showing. Raheem is in over his head. I am starting my Morris watch starting today. I am not buying this team. No discipline but enjoying the football game. Tampa looks under-prepared on both sides. Oh just another example of what we have been saying during wins and losses. Cheers!

  168. joe Says:


  169. raphael Says:

    need a t.o. here

  170. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    well…at lreast they only have to go 90 yards this time…maybe their offense will be worn out by 3rd quarter

  171. raphael Says:

    tackling and penalties is killing us…..the game is not over

  172. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  173. sensiblebuc Says:

    Challenge that.

  174. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    tricep again

  175. Buc Neckid Says:

    How many years left on the Olsen Contract?
    Somebody is gone after this year,
    it probably won’t be Rah

  176. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    or was it bicep

  177. steven Says:

    GMC is a bust cant stay on field he is like a piece of china freekin little girls that play football nowadays

  178. Buc Neckid Says:

    GMC Tricep?
    Wasn’t the knock on GMC all along Upper Body Strength issues?

  179. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    well folks…there is your excuse for the week

  180. raphael Says:

    LETS GO NO HUDDLE !!! come on haters whoops ..i mean fans

  181. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whew….punting room again

  182. snowman Says:

    Who cares if GMC is good if he is NEVER healthy!

  183. raphael Says:

    hey joe guess what …we still have a game

  184. Buc Neckid Says:

    And then they do something like that…

  185. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whew….maybe a field goal

  186. raphael Says:

    whew ! nice pass by FREE !

  187. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    lumpy for 4….is blount hurt too?

  188. Leighroy Says:

    Josh you are one EXTREME dude. Throws like that or head scratchers its insane.

  189. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    still throwing off his back foot

  190. tj Says:

    Where is geno Hayes I good rah ain’t trying to punish him when they won’t punish talib

  191. j lynch Says:

    Mc Bust hurt again….

  192. Buc Neckid Says:

    Are all of our pass plays designed to go east and west?

  193. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Capt Tim where is your boy McCoy? didnt you have all sorts of opinions earlier about how dominant he would be today

  194. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    another 2 yard pass

  195. Leighroy Says:


  196. Buc Neckid Says:

    And that is what Olsen considers an Original Play

  197. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Capt Tim where is your boy McCoy? didnt you have all sorts of opinions earlier about how dominant he would be today.

  198. sensiblebuc Says:

    Meh. Take the 3

  199. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  200. srqrr Says:

    WHYYYYYYYYYYY , that’s your 3rd and 4 call, Really????

  201. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    John Lynch is also saying WTF

  202. Architek Says:

    That was the most atrocious playcall I have ever seen by a Buc coordinator. Josh Johnson=run how hard is that to guess.

  203. snook Says:

    Take your best player out on a critical 3rd down. What an idiot.

  204. joe Says:


  205. Theodore Says:

    Josh Johnson? Really?

  206. Trey Says:

    Way to go Greg…………

  207. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whew…we avoid the shutout

  208. sensiblebuc Says:

    Barth is automatic

  209. raphael Says:

    why take freeman out…..

  210. Fear The Glo Says:

    All Aboard!

    …and they wonder why they can’t sell tickets.

    Play calling is a joke and the entire team is a sloppy mess.

  211. snowman Says:

    Wow that was stupid.

  212. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    hold them to 3 here Defense

  213. j lynch Says:

    Hey Raheem john lynch calls out sending in josh johnson career back up on third down … he sucks!!

  214. tj Says:

    Worst play call ever

  215. snook Says:

    Outcoached. AGAIN.

  216. raphael Says:


  217. sensiblebuc Says:

    No pass rush. Jeebus.

  218. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  219. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Block that extra point

  220. Theodore Says:

    Guys, it’s not Greg Olsen’s fault. Raheem doesn’t unleash the offense until the 2nd half.

  221. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    glad to see the saints OLine so banged up

  222. snook Says:

    Does anyone really think this team has a good coach?

  223. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    sproles with another screen pass

  224. steven Says:

    And wow it would be a one score game if we kick a FG instead of running a counter play on 4th and 1 Greg Olsen is a joke and Raheems defense is a joke

  225. Tristan Berry Says:

    Do the announcers just want to cut the pretense and just start buying Drew Brees jewelry?

  226. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    John Lynch having a heart attack…he needs to come in here

  227. Buc Neckid Says:

    Is anybody REALLY shocked by this game?

  228. snook Says:

    Whoever called that wildcat play to Josh Johnson should be fired. Now.

  229. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here comes 6

  230. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    whew…held them to 3

  231. sensiblebuc Says:

    Only down by two scores. It’s not over.

  232. raphael Says:

    scotty what are you 10 yrs old……really?

  233. Architek Says:

    That drive was a coaching clinic. Zone against Saints, ineffective. The first game we played man and aggressive. I am sick of this team. It’s one thing to lose but they are getting out-classed once again like they do so many times. Good luck with those stadium seats again Bucs and Glazers.

  234. simeon Says:

    feels like a bucs game, not much offense until the last drive of the half, down by 14 points. Look lke we dont know what we are doing on both sides of the ball and need to make 2nd half adjustments.

  235. Buc Neckid Says:

    Saints will go conservative in the second half against our beat up D Line.
    Run, Run, Run.

  236. RastaMon Says:

    not since the Dilfer era have the Bucs been this Dumbungry…..

  237. srqrr Says:

    Hire a DC and an OC, Rah needs to give up that position, maybe that’s the Glazer’s not wanting to pay for both. Did they even watch any tape or are they just focused on not liking the Saints, last time I checked that doesn’t win games.That being said, let’s get them in the second half

  238. snowman Says:

    But I thought as soon as we got rid of Jon Gruden everything would be perfect? At least thats what Steve Duemig told me…..

  239. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    THIS game could have put us in drivers seat to win division. It is still not to late, but we must adjust. Only 2 scores behind, we can come back.
    Let’s hope we do!

  240. Theodore Says:

    This feels like the halftime of the Vikings game. Reaching for anything here, guys.

  241. raphael Says:

    I agree apple

  242. Rickster Says:

    When breesus threw to moore in the endzone i knew that was touchdown.
    GMC…. sucks. I am finally awake from the daze i was in. Soft.
    Our defense consist of A beat up d line and a better than average safety(t-jack) average safety (jones) A over rated corner( talib) AND A FLIPPING SEVENTH ROUND PICK IN BIGGERS!!!!!! ZERO PLAY FROM THE LINE BACKERS! Im getting tired of ruining my sundays……..

  243. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Time to start talking about the heinious Greg Olsen experiment…seriously…can Alex Van Pelt be any worse?

  244. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Thanks for the honesty rickster

  245. Buc Neckid Says:

    Youngry = undisciplined suckage

  246. Trey Says:

    Gooooooooooooo Barber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  247. sensiblebuc Says:

    That’s playcalling baby!

  248. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Ole Man Barber!

  249. Buc Neckid Says:

    Barber is the only Youngry on the team

  250. sensiblebuc Says:

    Let’s put this one in!

  251. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    damn…we didnt score

  252. SkookumSmitty Says:


  253. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Ronde is a man

  254. Buc Neckid Says:

    That was a td
    bad call ref Sproles did not touch him

  255. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    come on…even blount can run against 8 man fronts

  256. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Ronde has 192 straight starts, mccoy has 1

  257. joe Says:


  258. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    another 3….REALLY?

  259. sensiblebuc Says:

    Vet move by Penn lmao

  260. Buc Neckid Says:

    Thomas 2.2
    That was Funny

  261. Buc Neckid Says:

    Lumpkin = Bumm – kin

  262. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Why did he turn backwards

  263. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Was that a 9 man front there?

  264. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  265. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did Blount punch him?

  266. Theodore Says:

    Blount was upset Bucs were in FG range.

  267. sensiblebuc Says:


  268. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    they gave us and fresh set of downs and we still go three and out?

  269. srqrr Says:

    this is the stupidest team in the league, that’s not coaching, that’s individual stupidity

  270. Buc Neckid Says:

    Blount is in a contract year,
    what is he doing,
    is he hanging out with Talib?

  271. SkookumSmitty Says:

    I will say it, and you all know me to be a patient fan:

    This TEAM has a discipline problem.

  272. snowman Says:


  273. j lynch Says:

    Blount gonna run some gassers???? Morris looked pissed

  274. Buc Neckid Says:

    You stop individual stupidity with good coaching.
    Stupid is ok once.
    Stupid over and over again is what bad coaching gets you

  275. Rickster Says:

    Just pound LGB.

  276. Architek Says:

    Hey Raheem what was that about discipline being the focus again? Playcalling and penalties has left 14 points on the field.

  277. sensiblebuc Says:

    At some point you’ve got to be personally accountable man. That one hurts.

  278. Rickster Says:


  279. Leighroy Says:

    This whole team is rattled except for Ronde and Barth and Koenen.

  280. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Ok….4 more field goals and we have this game

  281. Buc Neckid Says:

    Blount did not Punch him
    but an open hand to the face push after the play is almost as bad

  282. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    NOW he starts with the staredown….LGB is probably laughing at him now

  283. chargedcbh Says:

    This might be the worse offense in the NFL, we HAVE to get someone in here who understands that you don’t have to have 2 TE’s on 1st and 2nd down, someone who didn’t go to the shred bin and tape together Gruden’s 2 yard and a cloud of dust offense. This is the Bucs offense, 1st down, 2 TE’s, run the ball, get 3 yards, 2nd down, 2 TE’s run the ball get a yard b/c they have 10 men in the box. Now its 3rd down and 6, EVERYONE knows your going to throw, trips formation, throw it 2 yards praying that someone can make a play, now PUNT! Olsen will be FIRED after the year! Hey what about trying a freakin draw play to Blount? FYI, you can run the ball out of many different formations…

  284. sensiblebuc Says:

    Looks like we’re getting slightly more pressure.

  285. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    they will run the rest of the game

  286. Buc Neckid Says:

    Always adjustments on Defense after halftime,
    Where are the Offensive adjustments?

  287. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Black was his bitch on that one…LMAO

  288. sensiblebuc Says:

    Roy Miller and Bowers got worked.

  289. Buc Neckid Says:

    Lynch laughed at NT Miller
    “6 yards down field..Ha Ha”

  290. Rickster Says:

    Barth offensive mvp!

  291. joe Says:

    talib makes deon sanders look like a great tackler

  292. Buc Neckid Says:

    Opportunity missed for an INT that play

  293. sensiblebuc Says:

    We’ve got to switch to a zone when they have Sproles in the backfield. He’s too fast for Foster.

    Payton is calling a heck of a game.

  294. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOL…WOW…just WOW

  295. sensiblebuc Says:

    Yeah we’re just getting reach blocked on every run play. BP is useless. Miller is slow. Bowers is too small.

  296. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    come on boys…hold them to 3

  297. snowman Says:

    This defense sucks. Period

  298. Buc Neckid Says:

    Well Bucs Fans…
    How do you like your 2011 Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
    This IS our team, week in and week out,
    this is who they are.

  299. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMAO…we are celebrating a one yard gain?

  300. Luc Says:

    Man, we suck!

  301. Patrick Says:

    This offense sucks. We’re never explosive and we can’t get it going at all. And if it’s the first half……..forget it!

  302. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    screen pass

  303. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    flag….of course

  304. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Fire Raheem!

  305. sensiblebuc Says:


  306. joe Says:


  307. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    so…will we win another game this year?

  308. 941-Bucs Says:

    Roy Miller is Garbage, and we are missing Frank Okam badly.

  309. sensiblebuc Says:


  310. Patrick Says:

    Honestly, this offense isn’t much better than Gruden’s offense.

  311. Buc Neckid Says:

    Are the Bucs
    Sucking for Luck?

  312. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMFFAO…way to get tough on that extra point Jones

  313. Cannon Says:


  314. SkookumSmitty Says:

    “Are the Bucs
    Sucking for Luck?”

    If they are, they can’t even do THAT right at 4-4.

  315. Buc Neckid Says:

    Patrick your right.
    So the Glazers will reward Olson with a new contract and then fire him with two years left on that new contract.

  316. Leighroy Says:

    Beastie Boys “Sabotage”…… sigh* thanks fox…

  317. Steendahl Says:

    does anyone know where we rank in explosive plays? should be dead last! our offense is so god damn boring…

  318. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    ok….6 more field goals and we force overtime

  319. srqrr Says:

    where’s your pride, Bucs, no excuse for being out physicalled, this game reminds me of the Bucs v. Panthers game on Monday night when we started our slide to mediocrity.

  320. Theodore Says:

    Makes you wonder how bad Jagodzinski had to be.

  321. Rickster Says:

    Black looked like boz on the goal line

  322. Buc Neckid Says:

    How many 20 plus yard plays do we have?
    Bucs have to rank at the bottom of the league

  323. Snook Says:

    “Honestly, this offense isn’t much better than Gruden’s offense.”

    That’s because it IS Gruden’s offense.

    Where’s the Raheem sympathizers? I want to hear the excuses. Please. Let me have them.

  324. chargedcbh Says:

    WERE DOWN 24 TO 6 AND THEY COME OUT IN 2 TE’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF

  325. Leighroy Says:

    Wow, what a suprise. Pass to blount and he gets a first down. EVERY TIME!!!

  326. Rickster Says:

    Free, heart of a lion… Thats for sure.

  327. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMAO…NOW we throw to Blount

  328. chargedcbh Says:

    Rah has NO control over this team!!!

  329. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Oh boy…here comes our comeback

  330. joe Says:


  331. Patrick Says:

    I don’t get it. It seems like Freeman hasn’t really had a bad game at all. Someone please inform me! I haven’t been able to watch this game

  332. chargedcbh Says:

    They line 3 TE’s to one side and run the other way!

  333. Patrick Says:


  334. Buc Neckid Says:

    Pass to a D Line man
    Good call olson

  335. Patrick Says:

    Wow, 3rd and 1, you have Blount, yet they decide to pass it!

  336. joe Says:


  337. Buc Neckid Says:


  338. Rickster Says:

    Three and oneand we throw down field to a fb who was a de in college. Good call ollie!

  339. Patrick Says:


  340. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Even John Lynch is disgusted

  341. Trey Says:

    Can an offensive coordinator be impeached?

  342. Leighroy Says:

    Lol Rickster

  343. chargedcbh Says:

    Hey Patrick, Freeman is handcuffed by his own coaches! Read my post…. Its not a lie, EVERYBODY knows what is coming…

  344. Leighroy Says:

    Freeman really masks Olsen’s weaknesses as an OC. What a play!!!!

  345. joe Says:


  346. Mike419 Says:

    another retarted play call nice en around greg Oltard

  347. sensiblebuc Says:

    We run that same freaking play every week.

  348. Rickster Says:

    End around to benn for a loss….. That sums up ollie’s career. Its almost expected everygame!

  349. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    was wondering where the end around was

  350. Trey Says:

    Mike: I like it…. It’s now Greg Oltard.

  351. Leighroy Says:

    This play-by-play caller is horrible.

  352. sensiblebuc Says:

    Twist the knife even more on our coaches John Lynch.

  353. Patrick Says:

    Oh wow, here comes our 4th quarter comeback!!!!

  354. joe Says:


  355. Patrick Says:

    Freeman has completed 71% of his passes today. No touchdowns, but no interceptions either. Pretty solid game

  356. SkookumSmitty Says:

    These are the days, as much as the huge win days, that make you a REAL Bucs fan.

  357. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    taking our sweet time….good thing we are only down 18

  358. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Not happy about ONE FOR NINE 3rd down conversions.

  359. Leighroy Says:

    SPREAD THE FIELD, QB DRAW!!!!!! Anyone else agree?

  360. chargedcbh Says:

    Can someone please tell Free its ok to run!!!!!!

  361. sensiblebuc Says:

    Man this is just silly.

  362. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Red Zone Offense….wooo…hoooo

  363. Leighroy Says:

    Wow. Pathetic

  364. Patrick Says:

    Kick the field goal and make it a 2 possession game. Sorry, but our offense isn’t going to convert.

  365. Tristan Berry Says:

    I don’t think I’ve seen this level of ineptitude since 1987.

  366. Leighroy Says:

    Well, its a 2 possession game until Drew Brees scores again….

  367. big007hed Says:

    Get rid of Greg Olsen…….. He sucks!!!!!

  368. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    The Bucs are John Lynch’s bitch today

  369. thomas 2.2 Says:

    I dont really understand that. Go for it on 4th earlier on the drive shows a commitment to 7 points, then accept 3 there – strange

  370. joe Says:



  371. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMAO….WTF was THAT…..ok….5 FGs and they are ours.

  372. Patrick Says:

    The Bucs are in their 36th season of play, and they HAVE NEVER, NEVER had a great offense.

  373. chargedcbh Says:

    Someone has to go! Even if they have a miracle comeback, doesn’t change anything. Gruden Jr. Must be FIRED!!! I’m done posting!!!!!!!

  374. big007hed Says:

    A QB run on 2nd down? Greg Olsen sucks

  375. Patrick Says:

    I’m actually glad we kicked the field goal because I’m not confident our offense would’ve converted that.

  376. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I can see another week of lots of comments on Joe Bucs Fan

  377. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    stut body left….student body right…up the middle….

  378. Patrick Says:

    Maybe we can at least vote one Buccaneer to the pro bowl this year……..Connor Barth!

  379. thomas 2.2 Says:

    U guys are bashing Olson but – do you realize the D has given up 380 yards of offense, 140 rushing through 3 quarters. Also no sacks.

  380. Mike419 Says:

    Nah I’m fine with Raheem for now….fire Olsen and cut down on penalties….oh yea and GMC quit getting hurt every game 😛

  381. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  382. Patrick Says:

    @Thomas 2.2

    Yeah, unfortunately we’re always going to hear “the team is young” excuse

  383. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    any tackles for losses?

  384. Leighroy Says:

    3 and out!?!? Who abducted the Bucs Defense!?!?

  385. sensiblebuc Says:

    Hey I’ll take a 3 and out

  386. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    First tackle for Clayborn?

  387. canadianbuc Says:

    Ok so falcons are going to win so now were going to be in 3rd say bye to playoffs…….and is it only me or does it seem like our defense cant stop the run and the air attack to me it looks like every time brees drops back to throw either ifrst down or big play down field……….hate to say it but i saw this coming.

  388. Mike419 Says:

    yea the defence needs to be better…..too inconsistent but we’ll take that

  389. Mike419 Says:

    that 3 and out that is..

  390. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Capt tim thinks gmc should go to the pro bowl with his earth shattering 1 sack but disruption. The only thing disruptive about gmc is the fact that nobody knows whether or not he will be out or questionable on the injury report

  391. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    i hope the local scribes start asking tough questions this week versus kissing ass again.

  392. Patrick Says:

    POUND THE ROCK! Run Blount!

  393. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Mike: how can anyone be fine with rah?

  394. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    ok…here comes a 5 minute drive

  395. Patrick Says:

    Olsen is so predictable!!! Our pass offense is dead now!! Run Blount and surprise them a little!

  396. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    is there a 1 yard pass?

  397. Trey Says:

    Nice effort by Parker there.

  398. Patrick Says:

    Two straight Saints penalties have kept our last 2 drives alive

  399. rickster Says:

    Way to early for this comment but I’m frustrated. I don’t care who we draft, who we pick up or not for freeagents the best off season move we can make is releasing Ollie, hiring a DC and oc. I really think the staff is capping our team…

  400. Steendahl Says:

    4 time we have a 1st down after a 3rd down play, 3 of them are from penalties, holy mother of jesus and god and some other dudes…

  401. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    starting to throw off the back foot again…uh oh

  402. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    why are we running lumpy

  403. canadianbuc Says:

    Are we ever going to throw deep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  404. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    did blount get yanked?

  405. Patrick Says:

    People need to face it. Our receivers are not that great. We need a pro bowl playmaker on our offense and we don’t have that.

  406. Leighroy Says:

    Who is 80???

  407. joe Says:


  408. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Zac whos your mama

  409. Leighroy Says:

    Blount is benched for sure

  410. Leighroy Says:

    LETS GO!!!!!

  411. sensiblebuc Says:

    Refs are trying to make sure we cover lol

  412. Leighroy Says:

    Ok, now that was a great play design. I gotta give Olsen that!! This eerily reminds me of Minnesota….

  413. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Nice 5 minute drive….lol

  414. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOL…that was probably Freeman audibling

  415. Patrick Says:

    Would’ve much rather done the 2 pt. conversion there rather then wait till the end to do it

  416. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Olson had NOTHING to do with that playcalling

  417. Tristan Berry Says:

    Patrick, do you REALLY think this gang can pull of a 2 point conversion?

  418. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Havent heard grahams mentioned too much today

  419. Architek Says:

    @Patrick I think we all have realized that and more about this team. I will keep saying this win or loss. No discipline and incompetency in preparation is the cousin of failure. “Rah” has no control over this team.

  420. Tristan Berry Says:

    You mean Earnest Graham? The RB on IR and goner for the season? That Graham?

  421. sensiblebuc Says:

    @ Patrick

    No because if they missed the 2pointer just now it’s pretty much over. At least we still have a scintilla of a chance right now down 8.

  422. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    could be worse…we could have Seattle’s offense

  423. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    There is graham….Black was on him…lol

  424. sensiblebuc Says:

    Payton is a great playcaller man.

  425. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    now THAT is some defense

  426. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    This has nothing to do with their playcalling and EVERYTHING to do with our playcalling

  427. Leighroy Says:

    Where has the DL been without McCoy? Anyone? Thomas can u explain that??

  428. thomas 2.2 Says:

    That is Payton schooling Rah. Spread qb draw, nobody home. What a joke?

  429. Tristan Berry Says:

    Oh, Lynch; why don’t you just go down on the field and start making out with Brees already? Good grief!

  430. sensiblebuc Says:

    Disagree. When you look at the down, distance and situation for that playaction boot with Brees to Gilmore it was screaming for a run hence Bennett crashing so far down and being unable to properly defend the boot action. Payton has done an excellent job of mixing up his playcalling and tendencies.

  431. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Yes leighroy, gmc played the first few series and they were running right at home for 5-10 a clip, until of course he got another boo boo and will miss 4 more games.

  432. thomas 2.2 Says:

    I hear the fat lady, both for the game and season. So, where do we look in the draft?

  433. joe Says:


  434. Tristan Berry Says:

    We need beastly linebackers, Thomas.

  435. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Only ronde can tackle

  436. Trey Says:

    3 missed tackles is a joke.

  437. Tristan Berry Says:

    Yeah, I’m done guys. See y’all later.

  438. sensiblebuc Says:

    Wow. Foster ducks his head. Roy is embarassing.

  439. Leighroy Says:

    Eat your heart out Ruud!!!

  440. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Ronde was looking around asking “C’mon, man! Do I have to do EVERY THING??”

  441. Tristan Berry Says:

    Can we make Mason Foster a rookie player/coach?

  442. snowman Says:

    The future is so bright here…. ya got to wear shades.. you know what I mean? Ha

  443. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    No Defense forced us to pass, our Run WAS working, but how could we stick to it, down by so many points.
    Even with Mc

  444. thomas 2.2 Says:

    The bucs are not disciplined enough to run the no play, they would have multiple guys jumping

  445. Trey Says:

    Later guys.

  446. SkookumSmitty Says:

    While there is no football on…It looks like Dick Stockton got burned in a nasty drunken hibachi incident.

  447. Architek Says:

    Bucs Playoffs 2011 < Draft

  448. Buc Neckid Says:

    No Offense has forced our defense to look terrible.
    Let’s Look at the Discipline issues,
    Isn’t most of it on Offense?

  449. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Tristan, Foster was faked by Brees on that spread QB Draw he gained 20 yards on. HAD Foster stayed home, Brees would not have gained 20 yards.

  450. Brad Says:

    I’ve seen enough of Olson. I’d fire his arse before the plane leaves.. Raheem is on the short list..

  451. Buc Neckid Says:

    Gotta love em though,

  452. Sgt Mike Says:

    Proven, Blount gets 13 carries for 72yds, total of <20 carries for all TB backs. This equals a loss everytime. Watching that crap, poorly executed gameplan of a poor gameplan. Run the damn ball. Throw to the sticks, not 5 yds shy everytime. I can say it this week and maybe I'll be wrong by the end of the season but it is time to consider the next coach of the Bucs. Especially at coordinator. We are the most penalized team in the NFL. Rookie mistakes or crap coaching. You make the call. I'm just ready for our young players to get better which they have only regressed under current coaching staff. Get rid of him sooner than later. If we wanted Grudens playbook wouldn't we be better off just keeping Gruden. Hopefully they have not missed their opportunity to get a top notcch experienced coach or at least a true proven up and comer. I cannot stand to watch the horsecrap play calling by current staff. Something has got to give. Glazers need to get it done and admit that the Raheem experiment has not panned out. Get it done.

  453. Gt40bear Says:

    Just a thought, maybe Rah was a placeholder until Gruden’s contract ran out. Might explain his small contract and lack of extension even though Dominic got one. Probably over-thinking or wishful thinking.

  454. Jim Says:

    Joe, best thing about this game today is the pic that you put up of the gorgeous cheerleaders at the top of this thread.
    Keep up the good work.
