Gameday Tampa Bay

November 27th, 2011

  • Week 12


Bucs at Titans
Kickoff: 1 p.m.
TV: WTVT-TV Channel 13 locally, DirecTV Channel 710.
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 136.
Weather: Per, simply an ugly day in Music City. For Bucs fans tailgating, they will be dodging raindrops with temperatures in the 40s. As Joe’s dad would say, “that’s simply raw.” Rain should dissipate by kickoff with a temperature of 46, which will be the high for the day. By the end of the game it should be 42 under cloudy skies.
Odds: Per, Bucs +3.
Outlook: There is no mincing words. A loss and the Bucs are certain to be watching the playoffs in a bar like Joe. The Bucs have to win this game, simply put. And on paper, there doesn’t appear to be an issue. The Titans are garbage against the run and Chris Johnson, on his way to Canton, has hit a road block, which means their running game is a sham. For the Bucs to win, it’s a broken record that Joe is worn out from typing; but it bears repeating. Despite this season’s history that shows the Bucs would rather be cute passing the ball with a passing game that struggles, LeGarrette Blount needs to run the ball time after time until his wheels fall off. Given the fact the Titans struggle against the run, Blount will/could open up the entire Bucs offense. But Joe will believe it when he sees it when it comes to Bucs commitment to the run. Right now, the Bucs are tied with the winless Dolts for fewest rushes, which if you think of it, is disgraceful and, bluntly put, a waste of talent. Run LeGarratte Blount and good things will happen. It’s no more complex than that.

    Let me be the first to say that the Houston Texans cheerleader should be used for every game day thread from here on out regardless of who we are playing

  3. K2theSoldier Says:

    That might be the hottest woman I’ve ever seen in my life, well done Joe, well done.

  4. Anthony Says:

    K2 I was thinking the same thing. She is one of the best looking cheerleaders I have ever seen. I hope FOX shows a lot of her today.

  5. K2theSoldier Says:

    Hell yeah, I’ll be looking out for her haha.

  6. BucForce Says:

    Each week, I end up almost looking forward to the opposing team cheerleader picture on than the actual game itself. Puts me in the best of moods before I get disappointed in the afternoon. Well played, Joe.

  7. Eric Says:

    Something tells me she is not wasting her talents.

  9. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    The analysis:

    The bucs are 2 touchdowns better than the titans on offense. Our defense is one of the worst in NFL history, statistically speaking, so we will make the inept titans offense look decent.

    The decisive factor: the bucs are coached by rah rah Morris which means we will have a nonsensical game plan, we will play totally undisciplined, rah will make 1 or 2 horrible in game decisions – so rah closes the 2 td advantage but Freeman is good enough to prevent rah from losing the game so the bucs win by 1.

    Sounds about right, Thomas.

    Thomas ur a Dumb AZZZZZ!!!!

    1. We play in a hard division.
    2. Have a hard schedule inside and out of our division
    3. Lots of injuries
    4. One of the youngest team in pros.

    And Coach Rah is the problem???????????????????
    You people are silly.
    Free has played like crap. He is throwing late; lofting balls and throwing into multiply coverage. I “hear” his Wideouts don’t get separation.

    Well let’s put that argument to rest!!!!!! If you watched last week Aaron Rodgers threw into tight coverage SEVERAL TIMES BUT threw with confidence to “specific spots”. Brett Favre part of why he was so GOOD and BAD at the same time, is he throws into tight spots with CONFIDENCE. Lots of picks but he also threw tons of TD’s that’s why he won a SB and threw 7 INT’s in another playoff disaster.

    This isn’t College D!!!!!

    I think Josh in his second season is thinking too much and NOT throwing with confidence. This is hurting our Offense causing slow starts and keeping our young D on the field but that’s another argument. I love Free but let’s put the blame on him he hasn’t played well this year. I know his WR’s/TE’s aren’t catching everything but he is playing bad pretty much the whole year. .

    If he starts throwing with confidence I think the D can hold up “enough” to give Free a chance to win every game in the end. But he NEEDs to throw WITH CONFIDENCE early in the game and throughout the game to give our young D a chance to make plays. And our AWESOME Special Teams to do what they do!!!

    ONE LAST Thing Olsen isn’t the problem. Free throwing late is. I told all of you about this in the preseason I saw it from the stands. I love Free but he’s in the “Sophomore Slump” let’s hope he breaks out of it for the rest of the season.

    The TD Josh just threw, even though it wasn’t the tightest spiral it was still thrown quickly and decisively and it gave Mike “Freakin” Williams a chance to make a play on the ball. What happen? We scored in the redzone something Free hasn’t done well this year. Our record would be a lot better if we had scored in the Redzone this year and we wouldn’t be hearing ALL U RAH HATERS. Ur Plain silly. He is at the very least a decent coach.

    When Josh throws with confidence (like last year) the Bucs win, plain and simple. Until the D gets more experience we will need Free to play pretty good @QB not bad.
