Bucs’ Painful Season Extended

December 24th, 2011

"Oh, Joe, you're on the naughty list again."

The football gods are determined to torture Bucs fans for as long as possible.

Joe has received word from One Buc Palace that the Bucs’ season ending game at Atlanta on Sunday, Jan. 1, has been changed from 1 o’clock to 4:15 p.m.

First the NFL denies the Bucs crucial, season-making OTAs and now this. This whole year has been nothing but a conspiracy against the Bucs and their fans.

    Just prolonging the obvious. Rah gets to be coach for four extra hours. What a mess.

  2. Rich Says:

    Picking up on your sarcasm and loving it

  3. Captain Stagger Says:

    Who cares…..

  4. TheProsUseAdvoCare Says:

    Nice jest, Joe.

    All I know is Bennett and Clayborn need to be our starting LE and RE, respectively. Literally every other position on D should be up for grabs.

    It is just so bad. Really hard to point out the bright spots.

  5. Brad Says:

    Bowers and Price are keepers but after that the entire D needs to upgraded. I don’t care if Biggers is a 7th rounder or not that dude sucks ever game. But then again everyone sucks this year. I can’t remember the last time anyone has made a splash play or a big hit. How is that possible?

  6. BigMacAttack Says:

    No Excuses, like OTA’s. I still love this team but they have to get it together.

    “Hey Bill, this is Mark Dominick. Give me a number.”

    “Well, I kinda like my job now”

    ” 3 years $25MM, whataya say?

    “I don’t know ? Were talking the Bucs.”

    “Refs freakin hate you guys, why don’t you lose the red and wear black. The Steelers wear black.”

    “Look, I need to fill up this stadium, and build a dynasty. Are you the man to do it? Give me a number. I want you to coach this team. Are you scared?

    “$30MM three years and I’ll do it.”

    ” Seeya in the morning.”

  7. K2theSoldier Says:

    Dude…BigMac…what “dynasty” did Cower ever coach? The guy was a below average NFL coach for the vast majority of his career until he finally won the big one. I seriously don’t understand some people love fest with guys like Bill Cowher and Jeff Fisher.

  8. Rob in Orlando Says:

    The Bucs were not able to have anyone man up and step into a starting roll when the starter went down, at least not without a major, major drop off in talent and production. Again, it is decision time for the Cheapsters. Will they show they want a winner and stop feeding us this crap about wanting to develop “youngry” players? You need experience to teach these newbies like in any line of work. Veteran leadership/experience is a must in most professions, at least successful ones. Pay some freaking free agents and get a couple vet linebackers, corners, safties, wide receivers etc or we will be picking first overall in 2013. Hire an experienced coach and assistants for goodness sakes.

  9. Rob in Orlando Says:

    Hey K2, at least Cowher’s teams don’t give up almost 50 points a game. I kinda like the nasty Pittsburgh defense. The Bucs use to play with wreckless abandon and other teams respected our defense. Look at us now.

  10. TheProsUseAdvoCare Says:

    Cowher left and the Steelers haven’t changed. Clearly it has less to do with the head coach in Pittsburgh and more to do with the Owners/Managers.

  11. TheProsUseAdvoCare Says:

    @Brad Really? Price and Bowers over Clayborn and Bennett? We must be watching two different buccaneers team.

  12. 941-Bucs Says:

    i think he was adding bowers and price to the list with clayborn and bennet. those 4 have been playing there butts off(add Rhonde in there) other than that… no one else even comes close right now.

  13. 941-Bucs Says:

    If the team was smart they would go with Clayborn, Okam, Price, and Bennet in respective order. I foresee Price taking McCoys spot with another full offseason to rehab that lake and a full set of OTA’s to get back into shape. I also believe Bowers will eventually take over for Bennet.

  14. 941-Bucs Says:


  15. TheProsUseAdvoCare Says:

    @941 Perhaps it was an addition. A nice one at that.

    The D-line has two coaches. Perhaps two coaches for every other aspect of this team is necessary as well.

    As far as our DT situation, look no further than:


    Unless Price turns a corner and becomes consistent in at least one part of his game plus isn’t an injury liability, there is no way he is taking McCoy’s job. As of now he is just as injury prone as McCoy but without the skills.

    I still do not understand the hang up over Okam. The guy is simply not good.

  16. gotbbucs Says:

    advocare, i agree completely on the price, mccoy, okam talk. okam and price are two down players that really should only be seeing about half or maybe even only a third of the reps in a game. thats how they would be most effective.

  17. RastaMon Says:

    I can’t shake the sickening feeling that they’ll start the New Year like they finished the old year……

  18. Wisconsin Bucs fan Says:

    Team has more holes than a screen. We have a right guard, not much else on line. Need a real fullback. No depth at running back. Tight ends are a liability. wide outs are slow and can not get open. Defense tackles can not tackle. Foster is only linebacker and he is better as outside backer. Secondary is awful, major upgrades at all positions is needed. Kicking game and young ends one of few bright spots. Add to this horrible coaching and you have a 4-2 team that finishes 4-12 Hope we get a new coach that can fix this mess.

  19. Brad Says:

    @thepro…no I’m not saying price and bowers over Clayborn and Bennett. I’m saying in addition too. The fact Price played as much as he did after major surgery and was effective in more than one game and Bowers has been coming on lately. Bennett is a good rotation guy. Not sure where you thought I was picking one over the other.

  20. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    K2 during Cowher’s tenure they won more games than other team (like #1 out of 32 teams). I believe he played in 6 AFC championship game, winning 2. He made a super bowl, and should of won it with Neil O’Donnel at Qb (who gifted the game to the cowboys and gave Larry Brown? A super bowl mvp)I think he won 8 division Championships and made the Playoffs something like 11 or 13 times.

    He was the best NFL head coach in the NFL during his tenure, bar none.

    You guys who say his record / resume werent watching NFL football a decade ago. He also sent Tomlin a gift wrapped annual contender with Big Ben and that D.

    However, anyone, I mean anyone Joe, bambam, Hawaiian could do a better job coaching these guys than the current “WOAT” = Worst Of All Time.

  21. Bucnjim Says:

    Thomas; I agree! Looking back at Cowher’s record of consistancy; I would take that any day. He only had like 3 losing seasons in his entire tenure as coach of the Steelers. Most years he was winning 10 plus games!
