Gameday Tampa Bay

January 1st, 2012

Week 17
Bucs at Dixie Chicks
4:15 p.m.
TV: WTVT-TV in Tampa, DirecTV 713.
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 136.
Weather: Per, the game is playing in a soulless dome. For any Bucs fans tailgating, temperatures will be in the low 50s under sunny skies.
Odds: Per, Bucs +10.
Outlook: This very well could be the end of the Raheem Morris era in Tampa Bay. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling, the torches are lit, the pitchforks are at the ready. Bucs fans are nearly universal in wanting embattled Bucs coach Morris out of town. If he is retained, Joe is expecting the very ground under our feet to shake. From all credible reports, about the only shot Morris has of saving his job would be if the Bucs somehow upset the Dixie Chicks on their home turf. If the Packers beat the Lions in their 1 p.m. game, the Dixie Chicks have a shot of moving up to a higher playoff seed with a win, and avoiding playing at the Superdome against the Saints. So the Dixie Chicks would have incentive to beat the Bucs. If the Lions win, there is no incentive for the Dixie Chicks and the playoffs are set before kickoff at the Georgia Dome. It seems Bucs fans are far more interested in Morris being jettisoned than the Bucs beating the Dixie Chicks. It has sunk to that level.

    Holly hell that babe is mighty nice Joe.

    Mighty nice!

    I am excited about all the different football games today.

    See who gets in in the AFC, to see the Bucs final demise so Raheem can get canned, to watch for the crap teams to win so the Bucs might get a better draft spot and of course the Giants/Dallas game to top it off tonight.

    This is my bowl day.

    Go NFL football!

    I’m gonna miss ya this winter and spring.

    Lol what the hell happend to my post?! Hopefully the falcons get to distracted by their cheerleaders today.

    It is a sad state of affairs when I am more excited for the monday presser than the game.

    Monday should more exciting than Gerald McCoy on the waiver wire announcement! JK

    Enjoy the game. Oh, and for what you all have been waiting for. Atlanta plays starters briefly and bucs lose to Falcons scrubs by 10+.

    Sources indicate that Jeff Fisher may be at the game and the Fox crew will try to spot him. Sources all indicate that Fisher’s buc flirtation may be designed to drive up the price in San Diego.

    Sorry, she doesn’t look that hot to me. Been with girls like that too many times. I prefer a different look now.

    As I was posting, my 10yr old grandson walked up and said “At school those are called sweater puppies”. What the heck is our next generation coming to?

  10. TurnThePage Says:

    Pete you proved once again to be a dousce bag.

  11. Garv Says:

    Holy moly…..what a beautiful woman!


    Happy New Year!!!

  12. justin Says:

    anyone else see rick stroud says adam scheftler also reports raheem will be fired

  13. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Although this season has been awful, I’m at the dome and I’m going to scream my head off for the Bucs. This is the last football game that matters to me for over 8 months, so I’m going to enjoy it. I just really hope it’s not a repeat of the last game I went to (San Francisco). Go Bucs!!!

  14. Thomas 2.2 Says:


    Tell Rah Rah Sayonara for me. We of course swish him good health and happiness, just please ask him to never get anywhere near a buc player ever again.

    It is going to take some hard work to shake off the rah rah cliche infection that our players have been carrying.

  15. Garv Says:

    Good for you Hawaiian!
    GO BUCS!!!

    Happy New Year!!!

  16. espo Says:

    I’m with you Hawaiian. Literally, I’m in Atlanta.

    Everything here is uphill. Both directions.

  17. eric Says:

    i was with a woman like that for three seconds once.

    best 5k i ever spent.

  18. Sgt Mike Says:

    Today is the day. Looks like I’ll get the game on TV here in DC as the doubleheader. Too bad we suck. For better or worse we find out what the future of our Bucs entails. More of the same old crap or a rejuvenated shot at greatness for a young team. Go Bucs!

  19. TurnThePage Says:

    Option B Sgt.

    Why do we as fans distrust the Glazers so darn much?

    Something so obvious should be a no brainer decision… but not with our owners.

  20. Niko (The Optimist) Says:

    Who cares about the Bucs, Christie Walker is crawling on all 6s

  21. Patrick Says:

    Things better change this offseason. Sick of all the boring offseasons and the lack of moves this team makes to improve our performance on the field! Same ole, same ole.

  22. Niko (The Optimist) Says:

    Brent Grimes is out for todays game. He is a free agent next year, and I really hope the Bucs make a play for him. Its a double good move, rob your division foe while you improve.

  23. Big Picture Guy Says:

    Patrick, good luck. This team is trying to run itself like the Rays, while ignoring the 2 ton gorilla in the room; every NFL franchise makes $$ hand over fist on an annual basis.

  24. canadianbuc Says:

    LETS GO BUCS!!!! Lets get a win today so raheem can go to the podium for his press conference be all happy say this is the future and some BS about this is why hes staying LOL. And then Tomorrow HES FIRED AND LIKE TERRELL OWENS GOES TO THE IFL!!!!

  25. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Niko: not so sure I trust your recommendations after you held on so blindly to this rah dom disaster.

    However, Brent Grimes is excellent so long as his talents arent wasted by the rah rah cliche cute words and phrases coaching program.

  26. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Let it go Thomas. Stop repeating the same things over and over

  27. RichinNC Says:

    She has a hand for a knee. What is in the water in Atlanta?

  28. Thomas 2.2 Says:


    I was forced to say accurrate things over and over to you fanaticals who thought that we were the 72 Dolphins abd Rah was Don Shula bc of a few gift narrow wins over Max Hall, Jimmy Clausen, Jake Delhomme and Charlie Whitehurst. You guys have thick heads. You know: the wins that Cliche is now calling “smoke and mirrors.” so last year when I was arguing smoke and mirrors and you guys were arguing greatness, I guess 2011 and Rah’s admission has cleared up that disagreement.

    FYI- I was not so astute to predict that GMC would have the same number of serious injuries as sacks after 2 years – but I did predict that picking him 3rd overall was not smart.

  29. Patrick Says:

    Watching the Bucs vs. Falcons video preview on They were all laughing at the Bucs. They showed many clips of our defense last Sunday against the Panthers; one of them where Elbert Mack just stood on the field on a play where the Panthers got a TD. Can’t wait till we cut all these bums on our team.

  30. Garv Says:

    We GET you’re happy about all this 2.whatever. We hear every day, winning, losing it does not matter. You have a visceral hatred of Raheem Morris and have since day one. A personal hatred far beyond your liking anything about the Buccaneers and I find it rather disturbing.

    Well whoop dee do, we get you’re on cloud nine falsely believing your sick negativity somehow vindicates the hate. It doesn’t. And we know damn well that no matter WHAT happens next year, you won’t be at the games anyway.

    Now that you have gotten what you wanted, please go. You have nothing more to offer, nothing at all.

    Other than that? Enjoy the game Hawaiian and GO BUCS!!!

    And of course…..

    Happy New Year!!!

  31. RustyRhino Says:

    This is the NFL and things don’t always go like you hope and plan for.

    So Thomas 2.2 please tell us all here and now, how accurately you will be offering your “expert” critique of the new Head Coach / General Manager, if they come in and #1 not have a huge infux of over priced stop gap Free Agent. #2 how long will you give this new staff time to have a winning record before you transform into the humble buccaneer fan we have all experienced these last 2 seasons.

    I don’t expect you to lose any of your “expertness” or accuracy in the way you bitc# & complain about how the coaching staff and or GM handles the team. Let’s all hope your fair in your on going trend of raising hell if the team is not meeting your “expert” opinions of success and short comings.

    Let’s all hope we get the next Vince Lombardi if the owners of the Buccaneers make that decesion.

    Wow, what a great photo of that cheerleader, think i would follow her anywhere she wanted me to go. WOW
