  1. Capt.Tim Says:

    Everyone keep your eyes on Barrett Ruud . He’ll be on the sidelines with a mic and Headphones.

    Might be our next Defensive Coordinator . . .

  2. Joe Says:

    Per the Bucs Twitter feed, Dekoda Watson will play as will Tanard Jackson. Da’Quan Bowers to get his first start at left end.

    Colin McCarthy, former Clearwater Central Catholic stud, will start in place of Barrett Ruud.

  3. Patrick Says:

    Marino and the guys on CBS think Raheem’s job will be on the line after this season.

  4. Patrick Says:


    Didn’t Watson start in that first game vs the Saints?

  5. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m feeling like something crazy might happen today……..I predict a first quarter TD!!

  6. Bucnnole Says:

    The Bucs continue to have A.Gaitor on the inactive list. I think he’d be an upgrade over EJ Biggers and definately over that bum Myron Lewis.

  7. Leighroy Says:

    Titans have a backup RT in today playing against Bowers. This will be a matchup worth watching!!

  8. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Good afternoon gents. Rain helps us, our passing game is better

  9. srqrr Says:

    not a good start at all

  10. srqrr Says:

    good job by the D

  11. Patrick Says:

    Blount fumbled once, so I bet Olsen won’t give it to him for the rest of the game LMAO

  12. Leighroy Says:

    Great defensive stand. Give the whole team credit for that one. Had to force a 3 and out, and they did!!

  13. Bucnnole Says:

    Go right back to Blount. He needs at least 25 carries today regardless of the fumble. P.s. I hate Greg Olson.

  14. Leighroy Says:

    If you think the CITS has attendance problems, look around at the seats there in Nashville. Maybe the weather is that bad, but that sure doesn’t look like a sellout!!

  15. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Throw on 2 and 7

  16. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Thank you

  17. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Benn blanketed again

  18. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Rah looks confused again

  19. srqrr Says:

    Bucs get first quarter score, that’s improvement, right?

  20. Patrick Says:

    Olsen abandoned Blount on that new set of downs even though Freeman kept throwing incompletions or throws for negative yds to Benn

  21. Bucnnole Says:

    Typical Olson… Go all the way downfield with Blount then throw into the wind. Like that we went to the end zone but a screen to Benn on 2 and 10 for -3yds. Idiot!

  22. Bucnnole Says:

    Special teams breakdown. Damn.

  23. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    We are horribly coached

  24. Leighroy Says:

    That was a taste of our own medicine; tricky special teams play but they actually executed it (unlike our attempts).

  25. joe Says:


  26. Leighroy Says:

    What the heck is that Sammy!?!?!

  27. Steendahl Says:

    Thomas you cant say the special teams are horribly coached, that was a really good play that was perfectly executed, stuff happens.

  28. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Ahhh…the week our special teams lets us down.

  29. Patrick Says:

    Give the ball to Blount…..he does good…….and then throw 3 straight incompletions. Typical Olsen indeed Bucnnole

  30. Patrick Says:

    GIVE THE #$(*%$% BALL TO BLOUNT. 3rd and 2…..two good runs…….and you let Freeman toss another incompletion?!!

    I officially want Olsen gone after this year. Same crap over and over again.

  31. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMFFAO…here comes the hall of famer Johnson

  32. bucsfan95 Says:

    That special teams TD took out all our confidence… We are gonna lose this game. Chris Johnson is gonna eclipse 120 yards. Game over indeed.

  33. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Blount has 8 carries in the first 6 minutes of the game and 1 reception, He is on pace for 64 carries. U guys are nuts, they are running Blount!

  34. Leighroy Says:

    Great 4th down play!! Improbable but I love it!!

  35. bucsfan95 Says:

    Geno hayes!!!! First “splash” play of the year lol

  36. Patrick Says:

    @Thomas 2.2

    Two good carries in a row…….3rd and 2…….short yds for a 1st down and it’s yet another Freeman incompletion to kill a promising drive that Blount could’ve kept alive. He can get 2 yards!

  37. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Here we go with the give it to Blount every play crap! The run game is not effective if you never throw

  38. Patrick Says:

    Nice play by Hayes! Bout time he steps up

  39. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Nice catch

  40. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Was that a bad play call

  41. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Run Blount on 3rd and 10

  42. Patrick Says:

    When’s Olsen gonna realize our passing game is mediocre at best and that Blount is our key to moving the ball downfield?!

    I know the answer: NEVER

  43. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Patrick: it’s not Olson’s fault that benn dropped a pass making it 2nd and long

  44. Bucnnole Says:

    Are you freaking kidding me??? Not even a rushing attempt. Is it possible to FIRE Olson at halftime? Bucs fans, don’t you agree?

  45. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Johnson with a 100+ yard game today

  46. Patrick Says:


    Our receivers have been dropping passes all year long, doesn’t surprise me at all.

    Our passing game has not been a strength of this team.

  47. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Blount only had 9 touches in the first quarter – why does Olson refuse to use him? Lol

  48. Leighroy Says:

    Freeman showing a willingness to run tough today, I like it. One bright spot I guess?

  49. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Good offenses have balance, Olson strives for 50/50 run to pass, when you fall behind early that distribution necessarily shifts to more passes

  50. Big Rob Says:

    Three and out with all passes?!?! WTF Olsen?!?! FIRE OLSEN!!!!

  51. TampaRob Says:

    Bucs need some speed on offense.. no change-of-pace back to counter Blount.. and no really speedy deep WR threat. And on D they need a new D-coordinator and someone who can tackle. Ugh. I’m no football pro, but what i see is worse than the ’91 Bucs. Same lack of effort, same lack of speed, and same lack of fundamentals.. of course at least the ’91 Bucs could be counted on for at least 1 or 2 exciting plays per game – even if they involved Vinny throwing deep to the other team.

  52. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Biggers is horrible

  53. TampaRob Says:

    It’s called a tackle, Mr. Biggars. You’ve been doing it since middle school. Try it sometime.

  54. Buc Neckid Says:

    EJ Biggers 2011 Farewell Tour

  55. Leighroy Says:

    Thomas, I have to agree with you. He is the worst!!

  56. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Lynch having a field day against his old team…LMAO

  57. Buc Neckid Says:

    Lot of push and then disruption by the Buc D-Line in the Titan Back field today

  58. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Bring back sam wyche

  59. GenocideD Says:

    Biggers got lucky on that pass defense.

  60. Thomas 2.2 Says:


  61. TampaRob Says:

    Thomas- I’m sitting here twirling my finger in the air and thinking “Five dash two”

  62. Patrick Says:

    Biggers almost grabbed his facemask

  63. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    That should have been pass interference

  64. Buc Neckid Says:


  65. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Run Blount every play

  66. davebucsfan Says:

    Biggers is awful

  67. GenocideD Says:

    Am I the only one that thinks the Wildcat with JJ is retarded? I’d rather not make our QB run off and on the field for one play to try and confuse the defense by this cunning trickery. Pffft.

  68. Buc Neckid Says:

    Freeman is REALLY looking at his primary receivers today / this year
    = more inteceptions this year

  69. Patrick Says:

    If this catch is good, then I’m glad. But Freeman had more wide open options right in front of him instead of taking that downfield risk.

  70. Thomas 2.2 Says:


  71. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    and here come the flags

  72. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    well at least he didnt throw a pic

  73. GenocideD Says:

    A screen is where we let the defenders through and pass it just beyond them, right? How do you get stripped on a screen? Throw it the hell away!

  74. srqrr Says:

    Bucs are allergic to running Blount more than once in a series, Olsen????

  75. Patrick Says:

    Bad football

  76. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    It is virtually impossible for a head coach to prepare a team so badly that they fall behind early week after week

  77. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Next week we REALLY need to start making some personnel changes on defense. See what we have for next year.

  78. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here comes the Chris Johnson ShoW!!!!!!

  79. Capt.Tim Says:

    “Team Strenght secondary “not impressing you guys today?

  80. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Good thing the Titans stink also

  81. srqrr Says:

    is that how the wide receiver screen is ran for 20 yards

  82. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    3 and 17….LMFFAO

  83. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Down goES claiborne

  84. Patrick Says:

    Oh great. Now Clayborn is hurt.

  85. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here comes a shot down the field for 7.

  86. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Team weakness: head coach is impressing me again to day.

    By the way Tim: what position group does the head coach have the most involvement with?

  87. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Roy miller on the tight end

  88. GenocideD Says:

    After we lose this game I hope we lose all of the rest so we can get one of the best LBs or corners in the draft.

  89. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Chris Johnson on a draw

  90. davebucsfan Says:

    Radio is an idiot, get Biggers off the fields

  91. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Another PI that didnt get called…lol

  92. srqrr Says:

    down by 7, won’t see LGB the rest of this game

  93. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Onside kick

  94. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Freeman hasnt thrown an interception……YET!

  95. Buc Neckid Says:

    Both of these Pass offenses are too predictable but for different reasons.
    Bucs – just follow Freeman’s eyes on his primary (and ONLY Option) receiver,
    Titans – just find Biggers and that’s where they are throwing

  96. Buc Neckid Says:

    Price to locker room – AGAIN
    more important loss than GMC

  97. Patrick Says:

    Horrible offense!!

  98. Thomas 2.2 Says:


  99. GenocideD Says:

    Who is Dave Ball?

  100. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Down goes Price

  101. Patrick Says:

    Oh wow, Price hurt AGAIN. our d line is broken glass

  102. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    At least he held on to the ball

  103. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Not price!

  104. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Hold them to 3 defense

  105. Ryan Says:

    *&%$ it

  106. Snook Says:

    The Bucs are back this week!

    No one expected a Raheem coached team to play well two weeks in a row, did they?

    These losses are tough. But with each one, we’re a little closer to getting rid of Buffoon Morris.

  107. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Glass is overstating it, gmc is tissue paper

  108. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Price carted off no less

  109. Ryan Says:

    Guess we are paying a high *price* for these high draft pick D linemen…..

  110. Patrick Says:

    Nice to see Talib bringing out his “beating up cab driver” aggressiveness

  111. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Agreed snookie!

  112. Buc Neckid Says:

    At least 4 Bucs MISSED tackles on that play

  113. Steendahl Says:

    this tackling is really embassasing…
    really hope they can come back in the 2nd

  114. K2theSoldier Says:

    We are the WORST tackling defense I’ve EVER EVER seen. I mean, pittiful, terrible, disgusting, horrendous absolutely despicable and an abomination and disgrace at tackling. Absolutely pathetic.

  115. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Come on DEFENSE…hold them to 3 here

  116. davebucsfan Says:

    Another ej biggers missed tackle

  117. Bucnnole Says:

    Week in and week out we make some scrub look like a Pro Bowler. Dave Ball??? Greg Olsen continues to cost this team with his ridiculous play calling. Rumor has it that starting the third quarter we are going to run the WISHBONE. Embaressing. 3 points in the entire half. Just sad.

  118. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Where is TJAX?

  119. Theodore Says:

    Too bad Howard Cosell is no longer around to call Buc games. Down goes Clayborn! Down goes Price! Down goes McCoy!

  120. Buc Neckid Says:

    Per the new terms of the CBA,
    Can Raheem put them in Pads at half time to practice tackling?

  121. Patrick Says:

    Yeah Ryan, $35 million guaranteed for McCoy to be on IR two years in a row.

    Price is good, but his health issues really are becoming constant.

  122. biggers sux Says:

    Biggers Sux

  123. Bucnnole Says:

    Well said Snook

  124. srqrr Says:

    Bowers is consistently getting pressure

  125. Buc Neckid Says:

    he is as invisible as Ruud is today

  126. srqrr Says:


  127. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Ronde is awesome

  128. Theodore Says:

    There’s TJax. Scotty, ask where Mike Williams is now.

  129. Ryan Says:


  130. Patrick Says:

    Ronde is the man

  131. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here comes his pic….

  132. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Tim: lynch is an authority on football, especially d back play and he said the secondary is the strength of the D

  133. GenocideD Says:

    Lumpkin, whatever you do DON’T get out of bounds!

  134. Patrick Says:

    We better get the touchdown

  135. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    If this d didn’t have ronde, we may be o-10

  136. thibs5599 Says:

    whats up with brian price and i like watson in there on the defense more also

  137. GenocideD Says:

    Winslow knows what’s up.

  138. K2theSoldier Says:

    WE ALL LOVE RONDE BABY!!! Kellen is having another good day.

  139. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Where is Blount

  140. GenocideD Says:

    Come on, let’s put in Josh Johnson in the wildcat or a flea-flicker!

  141. Buc Neckid Says:

    Freeman == Dan Marino????

  142. GenocideD Says:


  143. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Why didnt they Blount on that drive, Olson is an idiot

  144. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    On side kick coming

  145. Buc Neckid Says:

    Titans get ball first in Second half

  146. Ryan Says:

    Good throw Josh!

  147. Patrick Says:

    Great catch by Winslow!!

  148. thibs5599 Says:

    we dont like to use blount in the red zone that would just be foolish

  149. Rich Says:

    It looks like we’re playing the kind of ball we loved watching last year! Bucs are playing like their season is on the line….. And Clayborn really is a high-motor guy. He’s fun to watch!

  150. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    My God you are a negative arse wipe Thomas. Give it a rest, please.

  151. K2theSoldier Says:

    Where are the Winslow haters now?? And I’ll admit man, Elbert Mack is turning into a pretty good football player, I’ve been his biggest critic. Couldn’t be happier. Also, we’re still terrible at tackling, especially T-Jack. Lets get some turn overs in the second half, establish Blount and we’ll be getting our 5th win!!!

  152. Patrick Says:


    I’m glad we’re tied at the half, but this offense overall has played like crap. Not close to last years

  153. Rich Says:

    Patrick, we’re making progress though. Starting to show signs of life. Freeman is scrambling and breaking tackles similar to last year. It’s true we don’t look as good, but you can see the confidence being gained again

  154. raphael Says:

    any score yet ?

  155. Buc Neckid Says:

    Way to go Mudders!

  156. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another reason why Olsen Sucks,
    Is that EVERYBODY knows shen he is going to run.

  157. srqrr Says:

    where has aqib talib been the rest of the games

  158. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  159. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hands on the Ball on Two Consecutive Plays and
    Two Drops in two consecutive plays.

  160. thibs5599 Says:

    im sure winslow will do something stupid in the second half and damn this rain going to be a sloppy second half fumble fumble fumble

  161. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Well at least he caught the ball

  162. K2theSoldier Says:

    Buc Neckid, the first one would have been jarred out of Jerry Rice’s hands. No excuse for the 2nd one, hang on to the damn ball Mike!

  163. Patrick Says:

    So i guess the rain will now be an excuse this week

  164. Steendahl Says:

    secondary = strenght?
    theyve looked real good so far, very nice pick 6 right there!

  165. Patrick Says:


  166. K2theSoldier Says:

    TALIB BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WELCOME BACK FROM YOUR SLUMBER MY FRIEND

  167. srqrr Says:

    Maybe Talib was still hurt from his injury last year, but he is finally playing like we expect him to

  168. Patrick Says:

    We badly need the Vikings to beat Atlanta today!

  169. Buc Neckid Says:

    Ronde is STILL the Man.

  170. GenocideD Says:

    Way to go Talib!

  171. Rich Says:

    We’re not running the same D we’ve been running all year. There have been some nice tweeks

  172. GenocideD Says:

    Imagine that. Throwing at Biggers on third and long… I hate biggers.

  173. biggers sux Says:

    Biggers again

  174. GenocideD Says:

    Go figure… …another Tenard Jackson missed tackles.

  175. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    That is some AWESOME tackling there

  176. Patrick Says:

    Horrible tackling

  177. Patrick Says:

    That reminds me of that play by Penn at Philadelphia back in 2009.

  178. biggers sux Says:

    Biggers is trash

  179. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I wish we could TWEAK some tackling

  180. Bobby Says:

    why do i feel like this is going to fall apart soon

  181. GenocideD Says:

    I have a man-crush on Blount. yAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAr!

  182. Oahubuc Says:

    “Blount can’t contribute as a receiver” _Anonymous

  183. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Gee…didnt see that fumble coming…LMAO

  184. Bobby Says:

    they just keep flirting with disaster

  185. biggers sux Says:

    Biggers still Sux

  186. Capt.Tim Says:

    Team Strength!!

  187. Buc Neckid Says:

    If Blount can hang on to the ball…
    This game COULD be over.
    These titans suck worse than the Bucs do

  188. Buc Neckid Says:

    Who was that too?
    Olsen, stop confusing Freeman with more than one option

  189. Bobby C Says:


  190. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    WTF is going on with our special teams

  191. Patrick Says:

    I hate Greg Olsen

  192. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Some SERIOUS tackling going on in HERE!

  193. Patrick Says:

    Had a nice drive going and Olsen can’t trust Blount to get 2 yards. Incomplete pass…..drive is over. Punt.

  194. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Rules question: If the receiving team got a hand on that punt, isn’t it a live ball after that point?

  195. GenocideD Says:

    Wow, who is this Tim Crowder person?

  196. Patrick Says:

    Fat Albert!

  197. Teddy Says:

    Skookum, the answer is no, not on a blocked punt.

  198. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Thanks, Teddy.

  199. Steendahl Says:

    run out the clock with blount now!!
    also, Percy Harvin just scored a 39 yd TD vs Atlanta making it 14-17

  200. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    And here comes another 3 and out

  201. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    That is if we dont turn it over

  202. Rich Says:


  203. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here come the flags

  204. Teddy Says:


  205. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  206. Patrick Says:

    Wow what a way to kill a great drive! I feel sorry for Blount

  207. Teddy Says:

    Scotty, where in Fat Antonio?

  208. Patrick Says:

    They always find a way to blow it

  209. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Punt the ball NOW before something BAD happens

  210. Patrick Says:

    They need to give it to Blount regardless of whether it’s 1st and 25!!!!

  211. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LUMPY for -3

  212. Patrick Says:

    BULLS***!! Once again our team breaks down mentally. And if you’re going to run it, why the hell do you use Lumpkin??!

  213. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Boy Koenen is stinking up the joint today

  214. Teddy Says:

    Patrick, if you’re going to do ANYTHING, why would you use Lumpkin?

  215. Architek Says:

    Cut Lumpkin please…

  216. Patrick Says:

    That drive is the poster example of how badly coached and undisciplined this team is. We’re doing so well, and just flat out self destruct and blow it. Really hard to be confident in these guys.

  217. Teddy Says:

    Time for the Prevent defense. WOO-HOO! Freeman will get yet another opportunity for a fourth quarter comeback.

  218. thibs5599 Says:

    conservative offense and penalites are pissing me off

  219. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Over by Lackland

  220. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Wow…Johnson might get 200

  221. Teddy Says:

    Bulverde, here

  222. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    WOW…another TOTAL defensive collapse after flag day

  223. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Here comes the pass interference call that has been alluding us all day

  224. Patrick Says:

    See how big of a momentum shift that was?!?!

  225. Gt40bear Says:

    What a bunch of ass-clowns this run defense is. Johnson will double his rushing total for the year by the end of the game!

  226. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    or maybe they score straight up

  227. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    tick tock tick tock…and our offense hasnt done anything the 2nd half

  228. biggers sux Says:

    Biggers is pathetic

  229. srqrr Says:

    t-jax too close

  230. srqrr Says:

    t-jax too close

  231. Patrick Says:

    I feel sorry for Blount. Two great games in a row and his team always ruins it for him.

  232. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    NICE pass rush there

  233. srqrr Says:

    Bowers getting pressure all game long, but he is not in the game on 4th and goal

  234. srqrr Says:

    fire raheem as d. coordinator, who drops roy miller back

  235. Leighroy Says:

    We really crapped the bed today all around. Time to pull this one out Josh!!

  236. Patrick Says:

    I think we should let Blount bring us back. They won’t be expecting us to run it.

  237. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Game….Set…and MATCH…and SEASON

  238. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    4 and out coming

  239. Patrick Says:

    This game is pissing me off even more than the Texans game. We should be in the lead right now. Penalties, coaching, and self destruction killed us once again.

  240. Teddy Says:

    They still need to run Blount here

  241. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  242. Leighroy Says:

    Rejus Benn wide open, but tried to force it to Winslow….

  243. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    And the pic

  244. Patrick Says:

    Game over.

  245. Teddy Says:

    Freeman’s trying to do too much.

  246. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Rudds replacement no less…LMFFAO…Karma

  247. Architek Says:

    Bucs throw up their skirts…Again

  248. Gt40bear Says:

    There’s the pick we’ve been waiting for…force another one to K2 there Josh Franchise!

  249. srqrr Says:

    i think all of us knew that was going to happen

  250. Steendahl Says:

    yep, next year it is
    hopefully with a new DC and an improved run defense

  251. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Let the excuses begin

  252. Teddy Says:

    …and Quincy Black/Geno Hayes are trying to do too little.

  253. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    200 yards for johnson?

  254. TampaRob Says:

    I hope the Bucs read these posts.. sorry, won’t be buying season tickets next year even if they were $5. This is the worst product I’ve seen from the Bucs EVER. Even worse than the ’76 team, because this team wasn’t made from discarded scraps. Honestly- outplayed, outcoached, out-hustled, out everythinged. Just crap. Nearly 200 yards to a runner that hasn’t gained 30 yards in a game all year????? Clean sweep.

  255. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    OOPS…my bad…only 190

  256. Teddy Says:

    Rah should get one more year, but not as both HC and DC. Too much for one guy long-term. Gruden did both roles for a little while, but we see how well that worked out in the long term.

  257. srqrr Says:

    do he Bucs have any linebackers at all

  258. Teddy Says:

    190…200…doesn’t matter. Remember, stats are for losers.

  259. Patrick Says:


    “hopefully with a new DC and an improved run defense”

    Raheem doesn’t even deserve to stay here as HC if this crap keeps up for the rest of the season. We should’ve beaten this team by a lot! Wow what a joke that we thought it was even possible for them to win out and finish 10-6.

  260. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Looks like we will be playing the panthers for last place.

  261. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Josh will throw one more pic today

  262. Leighroy Says:

    Keep Raheem for HC, but OC and DC need changing ASAP.

  263. K2theSoldier Says:

    The offense is terrible. The defense is terrible. The special teams is usually good, but is terrible today. I’m speechless. We go into shotgun on 3rd and short. We have our back up D linemen in on the biggest play of the entire game (the 4th down TD from Hasslebeck). I just don’t know what to say. Season over. Josh Freeman is a bad NFL quarterback right now. This is just bad. Wow. Really really bad.

  264. Patrick Says:

    This team is not showing any signs of improvement. Same crap every week. Blount is the only player that REALLY earns his money on this team. Maybe Joseph and Penn. That’s about it.

  265. Teddy Says:

    Maybe we can do a handoff on the kick return after the Field Goal too?

  266. Patrick Says:


    What is Raheem doing to deserve to stay here as head coach?

  267. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    would LOVE to see a well excuted on side kick here…now THAT would be Karma

  268. Teddy Says:

    Great. Now we get a steady diet of Freeman to Winslow forces and Freeman to Lumpkin dumpoffs with no time-outs.

  269. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    K2 Cost us that game, he is too good to block, so he holds with no reason, Blount was doing just fine.
    Then, his buddy Josh Freeman forces a pass so K2 can “make up for it”.
    Tampa was driving, not it looks like we are gonna Lose.

  270. Russ Says:

    I can’t take this anymore. The whole building needs to be fumigated. A GM that failed to stock the roster w/any depth. A head coach who isn’t functional as a coordinator. A QB who is looking Dilfer-esque in part thanks to a diva TE who may have cost us the game here w/an holding penalty. An offensive coordinator who can’t manage to devise an NFL game-plan…every week I look across the field and wish we had their offensive “genius” instead of ours. LBs and S’s who have no business playing football outside of the arena league. No speed. No discipline. No consequences. Go ahead and lower ticket prices, so what? The stadium will still be empty because the product is terrible and has been terrible for half a decade…
    I want Jeff Fisher’s phone to be ringing off of the hook!

  271. Teddy Says:

    Patrick, Rah works cheap. Remember that this is a team owned by Glazers.

  272. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMFFAO…..and he downs it in the end zone?

  273. Teddy Says:

    Russ, I don’t blame Dominik for any of this. Sure, we’re disappointed, but there’s a ton of talent on this team that wasn’t there two years ago. The fact that the team’s talent is undisciplined is Rah’s fault, not the front office’s fault.

  274. Patrick Says:

    Wow you couldn’t get 1 more yard Lumpkin?

  275. srqrr Says:


  276. Patrick Says:


  277. thomas 2.2 Says:

    So much for 6 in a row, so much for the playoffs, so much for – its great to have rah rah!

  278. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    THAT was a classic finish….LMFFAO. Lumpy was short on 3rd down

  279. bucsfan95 Says:

    Suck for Burfict ! Show is on…

  280. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I put this on Josh Freeman

  281. Teddy Says:

    Dammit, I’m sick of looking at draft picks in December.

  282. Patrick Says:

    And to think that we thought they could win out. What a joke.

  283. K2theSoldier Says:

    We’re a sorry ass football team. A sorry, sorry, sorry football team. I don’t remember how I felt after the other loses, but this one hurts.

  284. k1ngAdroc Says:

    Lumpkin hasn’t gotten that yard all year…. sad day

  285. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMFFAO…Not December yet

  286. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    WTF was Lumpkin doing running the ball anyway ?
    WHY was our best back not Blount in there ?

  287. srqrr Says:

    anybody miss caddy

  288. Patrick Says:

    I look forward to a 3rd straight year of no playoffs under Rah and Dummynick

  289. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Don’t understand why there was no measurement.

  290. Jerry Says:

    So you homers can’t use the schedule as the excuse anymore.

  291. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I hope they really embarrass the team by having only 20K show up at the next home game.

  292. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    they being the fans

  293. Gt40bear Says:

    Between this and the Gators, what a effn waste of a weekend. I’m just before giving up football.

  294. Leighroy Says:

    Patrick, in the last 5 weeks, nothing. But with 1 year left, you might as well give him a shot? Then again the Glazers are cheap so they will probably give everyone another chance at the status quo….

  295. K2theSoldier Says:

    And to top it all off, the brilliant move to keep Lumpkin instead of Caddy bites us in the ass, with Lumps inability to get past the sticks. I just don’t know what to say.

  296. Patrick Says:

    The Titans gained all that momentum after we killed that great drive by Blount with penalties and self destruction!!

  297. Bobby C Says:


  298. Architek Says:

    I love my well coached Bucs, you guys should be more positive. Freeman played his best, Winslow is great, Williams is a true #1, and we have a young promising defense. You guys should support the team. Dominik is building a lasting contender. Penalties are a part of the game. Go Bucs playoff wild card!

    LOL, there is your positive spin, Raheem is done I hope but the Glazers are cheap so you never know. I will not say anything positive about this team until Raheem is gone. Pathetic!

  299. Patrick Says:

    This is the worst loss we’ve had this year. Worse than the 49ers and Texans game because this is one that we SHOULD’VE HAD!

  300. Russ Says:

    Teddy, honestly…the GM is responsible for putting this roster together. Have the added some nice pieces, is there some talent, sure. But the bottom line is we went into the season with no depth at several key positions and mediocre talent at others. He’s also responsible for the overall operation of this football team…which, is in a tailspin that I doubt we can recover from. 31st on D. Near the bottom in redzone O. It’s coaching, yes. But Mark shouldn’t escape all blame…see Black, Quincy.

  301. Steendahl Says:

    i guess Lumpkins 3 rec for 10 yds qualify him to go in, instead of Blount with 3 rec for 56 yds, in Olsons head…
    damn i feel bitter now, this sucks

  302. srqrr Says:

    is there another patrick peterson in the draft

  303. Patrick Says:

    The way we played today, I can’t even check Jacksonville as a win now

  304. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Poll question…what will the excuse be today?

    1. Rain
    2. Price Injury
    3. Hey…Maybe Josh is color blind (for all you Vinny Fans)
    4. We got outcoached. Blame the loss on me.

  305. bucsfan95 Says:

    The bucs are a joke… if u cant get 1 yard against the titans, u dont deserve to win.. simple as that.

  306. Patrick Says:


    Yes, Dominick has failed in a lot of areas, but we lost today’s game due to penalties and horrible discipline once again. That falls on Raheem.

    I really don’t know who to blame more. Really it’s everyone’s fault!

  307. Bobby C Says:


  308. srqrr Says:

    @steendahl, well said

  309. bucsfan95 Says:

    Raheem Morris seems like a great guy but he has to go. We need a strict, disciplined head coach.. Although, I wonder if rah rah could go back to being the defensive back coach lol..

  310. Ryan Says:

    It was laughable that there was an article on here last week saying that Biggers might end up as a Brian Kelly type player. Nice try JoeBucsFan but Biggers sucks. There is a reason why every pass attempt is towards him.

    And I cant wait until Winslow is off this team. Every week he has some sort of penalty that is back breaking. His holding call basically cost this team the chance to go up 23-13.

    And last but not least, Lumpkin is a puss for not getting that extra foot.

  311. Buc Fan South Tampa Says:

    Jeff Fisher

  312. bucsfan95 Says:

    Peter King was very right. He said thay this team was gonna regress to 7 or 8 wins.. No excuses for todays loss.. Just hope this is part of a process and works out for tye better in the end..

  313. Russ Says:

    5 in a row boys and girls…not since the Gruden Dec. collapse has it felt so bad. We blew it up b/c we stunk…only to stink worse.

  314. GenocideD Says:

    Like I said above… I hope we lose all of the rest of our games now… Buh-bye Hayes and Black. That is just the beginning though. We need help on all angles. Total embarrassment today, Bucs.
