  1. Rick Says:

    Let’s hope GMC isn’t awe struck after this go around.


  2. Tom Says:

    Nice that we’ll get more than a half of the starters

  3. Miguel Grande Says:

    I hope they give LGB the night off to recover completely. I would like to see what these new guys can do behind the #1 line.

    Mark Barron will be tested tonight because I believe the Patriots have the best tight ends in the league.

    If GMC doesn’t make a tackle, that will be exactly what his average is this preseason. 1/2 tackle a game. Right on schedule.

    I have to wait until Sunday 10am to watch the game.

  4. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Okay, Michael Smith is officially a very good kickoff returner. Give him the job.

  5. Mr Lucky Says:

    Nice catch for a 1st by VJ

  6. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Two big plays to VJax already on the first drive!

  7. Mr Lucky Says:

    Muscle Hamster scores from 2 yards out

  8. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Opening drive TD baby! Woo!

  9. Bobby Says:

    Now shut up haters!

  10. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Looking good so far; OL doing well, Freeman connecting to Jackson, Muscle Hamster punching it in.

  11. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Also, coming back at 3rd and long AFTER the penalty…Something we didn’t see much last season.

  12. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Extremely impressed with how poised & confident Freeman looks so far. Looks like he’s in a zone right from the get-go.

  13. orlandobucfan Says:

    ok so the new acquisitions have done well so far lets see how the defense does I think that has been my worry for this season anyways, how does our defense play.

  14. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Jock strap grande,
    Re-read your post. Obviously math isn’t your strong suit.

  15. Miguel Grande Says:

    Uh-oh! I’m down 14 points on my wager.

    Who is this #83 guy and where’s he been hiding?

  16. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Hayward’s starting?

  17. Bobby Says:

    Ohhhh Nooooo…….

  18. Mr Lucky Says:

    GMC is down; injured AGAIN!

  19. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Aaand Mccoy is down.

  20. george john Says:

    OL softie is down again.what a!

  21. dan Says:

    foster had a mild hamstring thing, said deckerhoff

  22. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Three and out on the first Pats drive, but McCoy is down with a knee injury.

  23. aj Says:

    Wow, they better find some quality depth at DT.

  24. Hugo Says:

    Hell here go 93 out for another year smh

  25. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    At least Parker didn’t fumble it.

  26. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Nice catch by Clark. 12 yards down the field.

  27. Mr Lucky Says:

    Dallas Clark looks GOOD, much better than Winslow. VJ should have caught that for a 1st down!

  28. St Augustine Says:

    McCoy just went down (grasp his knee) ~ he looked in pain.
    Hope he’s ok. Other than this we’re looking very sharp (knock on wood).

  29. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Not a 3 and out, which is still ok by me.

  30. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Now is this an exaggerated Hawaiian knee injury or is glass Gerald really hurt? Not being insensitive but Hawaiian cried wolf last week.

  31. Mr Lucky Says:

    Nice special teams coverage on the punt, pined inside their own 20! Nice going Bucs

  32. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Good punt and coverage.

  33. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Go to the game so you can see for yourself

  34. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Pinned AGAIN.

  35. Mr Lucky Says:

    2.2 They showed GMC getting his cleats caught in the turf and it twisted the wrong way. GMC was on the sidelines standing and nothing too bad. He SHOULD be going back into the game – SHOULD

  36. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    VJax ruined that drive with an easy drop.

  37. dan Says:

    he walked off, but it was serious enough that nfl network cut in to show the injury

  38. dan Says:

    annnd hes back in!

  39. HectoR Says:

    McCoy is back

  40. Mr Lucky Says:

    Bennett CRUSHES Brady and knocks the ball loose, Pats recover but nice play!

  41. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Yeah boy! go Bennett!

  42. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Michael Bennett knocked the sh-t outta Brady!!!!

  43. DallasBuc Says:

    Brady got smeared!!

  44. killian Says:

    What’s going on with GMC? I’m watching Pats broadcast.

  45. SkookumSmitty Says:



  46. Mr Lucky Says:

    Barron INT and run back for TD

  47. Miguel Grande Says:

    Watching on NFL-Live GMC walked off the field gingerly. He’s able to put weight on it.

    I can’t believe his buddy on the Pats went after his knee like that. No penalty but should get fined for that cheap shot.

  48. Bobby Says:

    Yeah….we suck don’t we??

  49. Mr Lucky Says:

    The Bucs are looking like the 2011 Giants playing the Pats! I’m really pleased!

  50. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Apparently, you can draw ascii arrows on JBF…That was meant to be a TAMPA….BAAAY comment, since I heard the chant.

    OMG INT TD!!!!

  51. Bobby Says:

    Miguel…you may have to change your name buddy…..

  52. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    INT for a TD!!! Barron!!!! Woo hoo!!!

  53. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Fire the Cannons!

  54. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    Glad Hawaiian didn’t rush to an exaggerated conclusion this time.

  55. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    I’m liking the double team on Bennett, should open up stuff on the interior.

  56. Mr Lucky Says:

    Gotta give Rhonde the credit for that pick as he was the one who tipped it. Bucs defense looks fast, unlike last year.

    @ Miguel there was nothing ‘cheap’ against GMC, he got his cleats stuck, even the commentator John Lynch mentioned that GMC needs to use his arms better.

  57. aep1717 Says:

    No analysis here – just wanted everyone to know that I’m LOVING THIS GAME – watching via a website that shall not be named

  58. Mr Lucky Says:

    Crap Clayborn is heading into locker room with an arm injury

  59. Mr Lucky Says:

    Nice TFL by Roy Miller!

  60. DallasBuc Says:

    How come broadcast is NE, not Tampa?

  61. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Roy Miller? In the backfield?

  62. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    That play by Miller was almost Sapp-like. Impressive.

  63. Mr Lucky Says:

    Pats run offense sucks.

  64. SkookumSmitty Says:

    This is looking like a defense we can all like.

  65. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Are we actually tackling? And Micheal Bennett is doing really great.

  66. Mr Lucky Says:

    End of 1st and score Bucs 14 Patriots 0


    I’m impressed so far

  67. Rican Says:

    Man I have been the first one to defend McCoy but that does it man. Dude if you cant stay healthy your useless. Im ready for us to move on, he doesnt have what it takes to play in the NFL. His body is like a china doll.

  68. aj Says:

    At least it is the corners coming off the bench (Leonard Johnson) that are the ones getting beat.

  69. Mr Lucky Says:

    #95 got into the backfield but looked like he gave as on the last play otherwise it would have been a TFL. So far the Bucs look agressive on defense. On the inside stunt there was confusion but Johnson had hands up to knock down the Brady pass.

  70. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    X-Rays on Clayborn’s arm per Rick Stroud.

  71. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Someone nearly had him in the backfield on that sideline run. But as my ole friend would say, “Nearly never turned a heifer to a bull.”

  72. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    At least we’re getting pressure on Brady on most snaps now, but damn he’s good at getting rid of the ball quick.

  73. St Augustine Says:

    Good question DallasBuc! Randy Cross isnt bad but that other guy…really?
    The game is in Tampa ~ we should be listening to Lynch

  74. Rrsrq Says:

    Claiborne and GMC out of game

  75. Mr Lucky Says:

    Rhonde saves a TD – the LT got turned and beat badly

  76. Mr Lucky Says:

    NE TD – crap

  77. dway Says:

    heyward got washed up on that long run

  78. Rrsrq Says:

    Easy running drive by Pats

  79. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    No coincidence that when GMC and Clayborn leave the game the Pats start running the ball well.

  80. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Huge difference as soon as the backups get in.

  81. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Defense looks good but depth on the DL is atrocious. They need help.

  82. Rican Says:

    only one long run really

  83. Joe Says:

    Per Bucs radio, GMC getting left knee examined in locker room. Clayborn w/left arm injury returned from locker room. On sidelines. Mason Foster never suited up as he has a slight hamstring. Bucs down three defensive starters; all key starters.

  84. Mr Lucky Says:

    Now its time for Blount as RB

  85. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    We need a long drive here to give the D a little rest and change the momentum back to the Bucs.

  86. Mr Lucky Says:

    2nd miss by VJ this one on Freeman; Free had time but pass was BEHIND VJ. There was lots of running room

  87. Mr Lucky Says:

    Dallas Clark was a STEAL.

  88. Mr Lucky Says:

    2nd run by Blount and 2nd time he’s dancing at the line….making me wonder.

  89. DallasBuc Says:

    Someone tell me that we shouldn’t have paid the price to move up one spot to get Suh. That guy has yet to miss a game I believe.

  90. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Except when he was suspended for stomping on people.

  91. Mr Lucky Says:

    Freeman tosses behind and low to Parker so the Bucs have to punt. Both bad throws on this drive were on Freeman. He had time and there was separation.

  92. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Not sure if you know this, but in order to trade up, the other team would have to be willing. What makes you think Detroit would have even taken our call. This isn’t Madden!

  93. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Whenever Freeman tries to flick it instead of stepping into the throw it’s always off target. Pisses me off the way he seems lackadaisical on some throws. Wasted drive.

  94. Rican Says:

    We need to trade for a legitimate DT

  95. Oahubuc Says:

    I don’t know what the heck happened to Roy in the offseason, but I like it!

  96. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Run Defense? I like it.

  97. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Why won’t you run, Josh?

  98. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Dang it Trueblood.

  99. Mr Lucky Says:

    WOW a 56 year FG!!!!!

  100. Mr Lucky Says:

    As good as Freeman looked in the first drive he has reverted on this drive – terrible throws!

  101. Bobby Says:

    Alright. Get points on the board. 3 is better than 0.

  102. Rrsrq Says:

    Anybody else not feeling overly confident with Freeman

  103. Bobby Says:

    I think Freeman has orders not to run in preseason.

  104. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Freeman’s inconsistency is truly frustrating to watch.

  105. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    These patriots announcers, “Barth, contending for the placekicking job.”

    Drowning guy.

  106. dway Says:

    freeman could be doing worse, he could be tom brady….is that so bad to say right now? stop complaining

  107. Mr Lucky Says:

    Hayward SACKS Brady. If I were Foster I’d be worried about my job!

  108. Rican Says:

    It seems like what was predicated to be our least of worries QB is our biggest ? right now.

  109. DallasBuc Says:

    Everything has a price in business. What makes you do certain they weren’t hearing offers? Moot point. I’ll take the nasty and durable face stomper that has proven production over the nice guy that can’t stay on the field. I think most would agree and was talked about ad nauseum before the draft

  110. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Relax guys, remember everything is new… Freeman as well as the rest of the team is still learning the offense and havent had much playing time so far. I think Free will be fine with more playing time.



  112. Rrsrq Says:

    Let’s go DEFENSE. Worried about Free because he is missing receivers he shouldn’t be.

  113. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Remember, we have a lot of option routes in this offense, it should take a little while to get everything ironed out.

  114. ron Says:

    just think how bad this team beat us last year

  115. DallasBuc Says:

    Good challenge

  116. dway Says:

    personally im not like a lot of you worrying about josh freeman. his decision making looks better, he has time in the pocket, and he looks comfortable. his accuracy is lacking at times but no one hits every throw, ask brady, it’s preseason. When he throws from the pocket his accuracy had been pretty good. He will be fine.

  117. DallasBuc Says:

    Should have challenged the spot on that 1st down

  118. Rican Says:

    I dont understand why the hell you blitz and make it easy for Tom instead of defending the obvious damn pass.

  119. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Quincy Black? Open field tackling? OK.

  120. BucFan20 Says:

    We kept hearing that all last year. Freeman will be fine.

  121. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    And Ahmad goes hawking after balls again.

  122. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Parker fumbles a damn punt again!!! Get rid of this guy!

  123. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Preston Parker

  124. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Might be Parker’s last punt return.

  125. Rrsrq Says:

    No more Preston Parker returning punts…

  126. bucs76 Says:


  127. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I like our defense. When you can do what they’ve done to Tom Brady and the Patriots tonight you are no slouch.

  128. Bobby Says:

    Gotta catch the ball.

  129. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Martin biting the ball well after the play is over, nice.

  130. Rrsrq Says:

    Perfect time for situational football, what you got Bucs.

  131. Bobby Says:

    Let’s see if the defense can step up again.

  132. Rican Says:

    He looks just ugly

  133. Santos Says:

    Swarming to the ball……I’m excited!!!

  134. Mr Lucky Says:

    Freeman is NOT looking good.

  135. lurker Says:

    dallasbuc is just delirious from west nile outbreak πŸ™‚

  136. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Either Sullivan’s not letting it all hang out on the play calling or he needs more experience. After that first drive of the game our offense hasn’t looked very effective and the plays seem vanilla.

  137. Bobby Says:

    Gosh, it’s frustrating to watch these terrible passes by Brady….. yes that was sarcasm.

  138. Mr Lucky Says:

    I really HOPE that they make Freeman come out in the 2nd half and play the 3rd quarter! He’s had protection but can’t come up with the pass!

  139. DallasBuc Says:

    Why is that lurker?

  140. lurker Says:

    defense looks way ahead of offense, huh

  141. Mr Lucky Says:

    Ok let’s see how Freeman handles the 2 minute drill. 2 time outs left.

  142. Mr Lucky Says:

    What a run by Martin!!!!! Looked like 2010 Blount

  143. Rican Says:

    And these patriot announcers have gotten sosososososososo many Bucs names wrong

  144. Bobby Says:

    Holy Crap!!!! This is going to be a tough night for injuries…..

  145. Rrsrq Says:

    Was that a draw play/quick hitter

  146. Bobby Says:

    No one to replace that cat.

  147. Mr Lucky Says:

    Oh crap Davin Joseph is getting carted out with a knee injury

  148. Rrsrq Says:

    Hopefully not serious for Joseph…

  149. Bobby Says:

    If we lose Joseph, McCoy and Clayborn…..I’d rather we got blown out and those guys stayed healthy but it is what it is. Somebody will have to step up.

  150. Mr Lucky Says:

    Now THAT’s the nice pitch and catch with Free and Parker for a 1st. Martin reminds me of Dunn but with muscles

  151. CharlieB Says:

    Freeman looks awful

  152. Bobby Says:

    My guess is that GMC’s isn’t serious but Joseph’s definitely is. Don’t know about Clayborn yet but hopefully we’ll hear something at half.

  153. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Holy…Another 50+ FG?

  154. Bobby Says:

    Free doesn’t look any worse than Brady.

  155. BucFan20 Says:

    Have we seen this before? Freeman off target. 1TD THEN FIELD GOALS. But the defense looks like A DEFENSE!!

  156. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    20-7 lead going into halftime.. dont think we’ll see much of our starters anymore. Just hope the dam injuries arent serious. I swear we are the most unlucky team when it comes to injuries.

  157. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Was it Clay’s right or left arm? His right was the one that caused some draft concerns.

  158. dan Says:

    only because it is shorter, not injury prone thomas

  159. Rican Says:

    On the contrary Free does look worse. He is lacking accuracy and velocity on his passes. Even when he has time

  160. Thomas2.2 Says:

    I hope that DJ and Clay aren’t forced to miss anybreg season time – those injuries would be devastating. I hope glass gerald’s okay but I think we can survive without his 1/2 tackle per game until he gets better.

  161. Bobby Says:

    Thomas…you can’t be serious. That injury had nothing to do with any draft concerns you moron. It’s a physical game and people get hurt as we’ve seen tonight. People pile on your arm in a scrim for the ball and you can get hurt or tear a bicep trying to rip it out.

  162. lurker Says:

    wow thomas, my god you are funny. hahahohohee 1/2 tackle/game, classic! so do you and miguel payasito exchange joke at night in bed?

  163. aj Says:

    You don’t want to risk the starters to too much in the way of injuries, but I’d like to see Free stay in until he can complete a couple of balls, hopefully find a little rhythm before the regular season.

    He’s missed a lot of open receivers tonight.

  164. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Bobby: i love Clay, he has been Dom’s 1 gem. I am just asking which arm it was – I didn’t see how it was injured. His right arm was the concern pre-draft

  165. lurker Says:

    so the kickers are doing well, what about the rest of the special teams?

  166. Thomas2.2 Says:

    True Bobby: but some players just can’t take the physicality of the NFL and are constantly injured

  167. dan Says:

    the concern had nothing to do with injury, just ability. and incorrectly

  168. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    What everyone worried would be the Bucs weakness (defense) has turned out at least tonight to be this team’s strength.

  169. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Dom knows kickers – he was a swimmer prior to becoming Bucs GM and Joe’s idol

  170. Rican Says:

    FREEMAN LOOKS SO BAD lolol im shocked

  171. Bobby Says:

    Since when is Clayborn constantly injured????

  172. aj Says:

    Preston Parker, yes as third receiver, NO as punt returner.

  173. Bobby Says:

    Rican…that was a poor route by Williams. It was a comeback route and Williams ran it too deep. It’s not always the QB’s fault.

  174. aj Says:

    Wow, Schiano has to be a half inch from an aneurysm right now, with three straight penalties.

  175. ELioT Says:

    What fu***ng luck! 2010&2011’s first two rounds of draft picks are injured or on another team. The Bucs have the worst luck on that D-line.

  176. Rican Says:

    The QB has looked horrific most of this game with or without that play

  177. ELioT Says:

    Joseph going down is like a kick straight to the sack.

  178. Rican Says:

    He looks scared

  179. Bobby Says:

    Has anyone heard the status of the injuries?? I know Joseph’s is probably season ending but I haven’t heard anything on Clayborn. GMC was walking around so I’m assuming his knee was just tweaked but no news on any of the injuries that I’ve heard.

  180. Oahubuc Says:

    Thinking we’ll see Hardman at RG rather than Larsen?

  181. Bobby Says:

    So comment on how bad Brady looks too Rican. He looks every bit as bad as Freeman has looked.

  182. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Defense still looking amazingly effective. I’m seriously impressed here.

  183. Bobby Says:

    Sometimes you have an off night but I am going to attribute a lot of it to good pass D by New England. We all know Brady isn’t as bad as he’s looked tonight but he hasn’t had anybody open. Our Defense has been stifling tonight. Really strong in all aspects. They can’t run or pass on us. I like it. So much for the questions about depth.

  184. Oahubuc Says:

    Who got in Freeman’s head and convinced him he was a pocket passer? Oh, I know…

  185. BucFan20 Says:

    Brady under pressure all night. Freeman under pressure all night? NO! So much for that excuse.

  186. Rican Says:

    I dont care about how bad Brady looks lol. Brady is not the QB for my team haha. Bradys bad is due to how amazing our defense is playing. Not Free’s play, Free’s bad play is due to Free and not anyone else.

  187. Oahubuc Says:

    Brady also has a body of work to stand on to convince us of the FACT that he will dominate again this year, and the year after that. The jury is way out on Freeman, so we have to take it day by day. And today, he ain’t looking so hot.

  188. dan Says:

    wide recievers not named Vincent Jackson seem to be running sloppy routes.

  189. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Any coincidence that the D is better with Hayward at Mike?

  190. Rrsrq Says:

    Bucs can kick for sure

  191. aj Says:

    Looks like Forbath just made someone’s roster, just most likely not the Bucs with Barth already here.

  192. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Barth is the man. Dom needs to give him whatever he wants and lock him down for the rest of his career.

  193. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Swimmer Dom knows kicker. Recognize!

  194. Rican Says:

    Hmm that something that should be sorted out soon Thomas haha

  195. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    This game is exactly why I hate the preseason. Injuries everywhere, and critical ones.

  196. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Once you grade out the players, let us know who should start at MLB.

  197. St Augustine Says:

    Can we sign the (new) kicker and trade him for a 3 or 4?

  198. Bobby Says:

    Thomas…you should quit posting. You have been 100 percent wrong about this team. Dom’s draft picks are playing pretty well aren’t they? Rock Star!!

  199. Thomas2.2 Says:

    That is one thing I agree with you on Hawaiian

  200. aj Says:

    Wow, looks like the Pats starting offense is staying out there until they get it right.

  201. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    That will be all she wrote for the Patriot starters.

  202. Bobby Says:

    The same people who panicked about the Tennessee are panicking about Freeman. Geez….does it ever end? It’s a team game people. We’re up 23-14 and it was 20-7 when our first teams left the field. If you want to find something to bitch about go ahead but I couldn’t be happier.

  203. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    These Patriot announcers are literally the worst I have ever heard. I would be an awful commentator, but I could do better than this coming off my couch. Their percentage of getting the Bucs names right is even lower than Josh Freeman’s completion percentage.

  204. Rican Says:

    They only scored cause our starters arent in lol

  205. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Bobby! I think that you r referring to Schiano’s draftees – yes they’re great. Dom’s either stunk or were injured as usual.

  206. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Don’t get overly excited ladies. The Pats have been busting their a–es away from home for a while – they did the same deal, practices and game with Saints last week.

  207. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Holder is reporting that Davin Joseph most likely out for the year

  208. Rican Says:

    Bobby please show me the post where i panicked about Tennessee. Thats two terrible games by Free. We’ll see which Free was a fluke soon enough. 2010 Free or 2011 Free. So far other than looking skinnier he doesnt look much diff than 2011 Free.

  209. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Michael Smith has absolutely without a doubt made the team tonight

  210. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Upthread, someone suggested that maybe Freeman was ordered not to run…I can see that, as he clearly needs the ‘patience’ reps. I am…Not too worried.

    It’s 23-14 in the fourth…This is a better performance than I expected.

  211. aj Says:

    Yeah, I think it is pretty much bye bye Moises Madu.

    Hayward was also a stud tonight, stepped up nicely.

  212. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    First person that says Orlovsky should start should immediately be banned from commenting, or even watching, football.

  213. Rican Says:

    Atleast he’s completing passes haha ; ) πŸ˜› lol

  214. lurker Says:

    please say it thomas, please be banned from football.

  215. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Demps running hard for that sideline! Doesn’t want contact

  218. Architek Says:

    Man I am truly confused on how to feel about McCoy. I am praying that Joseph is ok for the season but McCoy, I am just so tired of his act after 3 years.

  219. Bobby Says:

    I hate it that we lost Joseph. That just sucks. I was really looking forward to having Nicks and Joseph anchor that O-line this year.

  220. Bobby Says:

    @Architek. Typical classless comment by you. Hope that McCoy is injured just so you’ll be ‘over it’. Some of you so called ‘fans’ really need to find another team to tear down. I’m sick of reading your garbage on this site.

  221. Bobby Says:

    By the way. McCoy is probably the only one of the injuries that is minor.

  222. Architek Says:

    @Bobby, since when did my opinion and honesty become censored by you? I expressed my opinion and right or wrong, it’s just that. I actually thought it was rather conservative of how most people view him.

    I am simply communicating that I am tired of one of the highest paid DTs in the game hurt every year. Thats a fair and bias towards my opinion. Does people opinio make them weak fans if they dont like oft injured players? You should really go check yourself sir. I was ver vocal last season of the foolery of a program Raheem and Dominik fielded but I am loving the Schiano Order. I believe we will be a perrenial contender in years to come IF Freeman becomes consistent but time will tell. Stop crowning people and make them earn it. ‘Dennis Green’

  223. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Bobby, you really need to stop trying to moderate everyone’s comments. That’s not your job. Not to mention the fact that you completely misread what Architek was saying.

  224. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    We don’t have any idea how serious the McCoy injury is. In the preseason, teams are very careful. If your toenail is sore, they generally pull you out (as they should). If he’s out for some time, then your criticism is fair. But if he’s not, then perhaps you are jumping the gun. Just wait and see. Hopefully as Bucs fans, we are all hoping he’s fine.

  225. BucFan20 Says:

    @ Architek,
    Calm down man. If your opinion does not agree with his it is garbage . A lot of posters here are the same way. If they have something negitive to say they can but you never can.

  226. Bobby Says:

    Shut the #$@! up FlBoyInDallas. I don’t need your punk ass chiming in. Architek is a bitch…pure and simple. He’s in the same class as Thomas…a whiney little punk bitch that is constantly tearing the team down and I get sick of reading it. When a player gets hurt, especially if it’s McCoy they act like it’s a personal attack on ‘their’ money that’s invested in him. How did I misread what he said. He said he hoped Joseph wasn’t seriously injured but he didn’t know how to feel about McCoy. That means part of him was hoping McCoy WAS seriously injured. How else do you read it??? You speak a different language in Dallas?? I assume it’s still English. I’m not censoring anyone’s comments….I’m just telling him what I think about his comments. Quit meddling.

  227. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    You won’t last long here…thankfully.

  228. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Bye, Bobby.

  229. Bobby Says:

    @BucFan20….you NEVER can????!?? Are you freaking kidding me??? I would love for Archipunk to say something positive once in awhile. That would be wonderful. Same with Thomas. Instead they make it their business to be a cancer on this board. They love to be the most negative little whiney posters I’ve ever read on any web site. Then when we have a good game they still find something to whine about.

    “Don’t get overly excited ladies. The Pats have been busting their a–es away from home for a while – they did the same deal, practices and game with Saints last week.” Nice positive quote from Thomas.

  230. Bobby Says:

    Pull for the Cowboys FlBoyInDallas. Just stay out of my business when I comment about someone and we’ll be fine. You tell me to stop censoring someone elses comments by trying to censor mine?? How stupid is that….

  231. Bobby Says:

    OK….after calming down a little perhaps I overreacted. Architek, I’m sorry I went off on you like that. I assumed you were saying that a part of you hoped McCoy was injured so we could move on to someone. I hope that’s not what you meant. FlBoyInDallas…I know you’re a fan and I’m sorry for going off on you. I’m never going to hope anyone might be injured and I guess it was just aggravating me that someone would not know how to feel about a player getting injured. Someone’s opinion should never upset me that much. Anyway, I was a jerk for the comments and I apologize.

  232. Rican Says:

    Funny Bobby seems to me that you can get your nose out of everyone else’s buisness/opinions on this board. Your a hypocrite. Plain and simple. The only cancer I see here is you. Go right on ahead and resort to name calling if you’d like lol. Doesn’t change the truth. You’ll be gone here pretty soon. Thomas may be negative but atleast he has more character than what your showing.

  233. Bobby Says:

    You get that one for free Rican.

  234. Rican Says:

    Aren’t you the considerate one πŸ™‚
    Fortunately, I think yours will cost you.

  235. lurker Says:

    it ain’t costing him nothing. all of yall’s negativity is grating. most are punks that hide behing keyboards trolling. you know your toughness is not real.

  236. Rican Says:

    I didnt think you were Joe but thanks anyways lurker πŸ˜‰ The irony is that what your crying about, “trolling”, is exactly what he’s doing hiding behind the justification of positivity lol. Please… Reality is there are two sides two everything and just like there are MANY great things happening with this team there are PLENTY of things that aren’t that pretty. If you choose to live life with the rose colored lenses on 24/7 that’s on you but dont “troll” around bashing everybody that happens to see those unpleasant things and stop trying to force those rosey lenses onto their eyes. Get over yourselves… Hypocrites.

  237. lurker Says:

    i am sure you are in bed now dreamin of kickin kitties, rican. however, fan does mean rooting for the team. what a few idjits like to do is constantly nag, berate, and bring down the fans of this team.


    1a. Noun
    One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.

    1c. Noun
    A member of an internet forum who continually harangues and harasses others. Someone with nothing worthwhile to add to a certain conversation, but rather continually threadjacks or changes the subject, as well as thinks every member of the forum is talking about them and only them. Trolls often go by multiple names to circumvent getting banned.

    sure sounds like thomas, miguel, architek, and a few others too. they just do not want others to enjoy the bucs. they get off causing misery because of their real-life issues. sorry if you can’t see it with your troll-colored glasses on.

  238. Rican Says:

    lol Missing my point completely but I suppose with the “argumentative” nature of a message board the Irony escapes you haha. Btw I’d love for you to show me where according to to the “definitions” you have so kindly offered I have acted as a troll. Cause you see Mr. Lurker the point I have been trying to make, you have made for me. Nowhere in the definition does it define a troll as someone who happens to see the “negative nature” of the coin. In fact nowhere does it say the word negative period. We can than conclude that Trolling is not the side of the coin we choose to see but the intent behind it or the way we go about it that matters.
    I will not argue that Thomas most definitely has been trollish at times, thats not what im trying to get at. Im sure his intentions many times has been to rile many a people up but I have yet see him personally attack anybody the way Bobby did earlier to Architek. Troll or not. It seems like Troll Patrolling has become so much a part of his job on this board that anytime anybody posts anything thats not Rosey and is the opposite side of the coin he attacks them as a “troll” would, being provocative to that particular peoples on the board. You see, in the witchhunt to find the Trolls your assuming alot. That’s all I have to say on this. Have a nice day Mr.Lurker

  239. lurker Says:

    wow, rican, you remind me of someone in school who tried to sound intelligent by using big words. however, he used them incorrectly most times and just came off as laughable.

    your whole “argument” is just a lot of hot air and your “debating” skill are just as laughable as the poor chap from school.
