PrimeTime Insult

September 17th, 2012

Deion Sanders didn’t mince words on the NFL Network after the Bucs-Giants game. He didn’t like anything about Greg Schiano defending his edict to the Bucs to play 100 percent through the kneel-down of Eli Manning to close out the Giants 41-34 victory Sunday.

NFL Network rolled tape of Schiano saying he coaches clean, hard football for 60 minutes. And then Sanders cut in with his disgust.

“That don’t work. That’s ignorant. That doesn’t work. It’s unwritten rules in the NFL and you abide by them,” Sanders said. “He’s a young coach coming up trying to establish credibility and credential with his players saying, ‘Guys, we go whistle to whistle.’ That don’t work in the NFL.”

Here’s the tape of the exchange.

Joe had no problem with the Bucs’ actions on the final play, and Sanders calling Schiano’s comments “ignorant” crossed a line. It’s ironic to Joe how Sanders, who loved to showboat and humiliate opponents, is lecturing on unwritten rules of the NFL.

    Prime Slime has never had anything good to say about the Bucs, so anything he has to say means nothing to me.

  2. flmike Says:

    If you follow “Prime” on twitter you know what he’s doing for his community (building schools, after school programs, etc) and I respect him for that, but in his playing days he was a talented clown who would show-up an opponent for just making a tackle (which as we all know, he rarely did) so his opinions on the unwritten rules of the NFL are just those, his opinions.

  3. Orlandobucfan Says:

    As I was reading his comment I was just thinking its funny tho coming from a show boat central who danced his way into the end zones and taunted other players. I hope at half time next game tony romo takes a knee and we do the same thing. Don’t change our tough mentality to fix anyone’s hurt feelings. Freeman will take a step back and knee next week and the OL will block till the end of the game.

  4. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Sanders is worthless. His words mean nothing.

  5. Brandon Says:

    Deions; only worried about Deion. And as far as ignoramuses go, only Michael Irvin tops Sanders.

    I used to watch NFLN before games because they didn’t have the schlock some of the other networks had, but now that Sanders and Irvin were reunited, it’s become unwatchable. Can Michael Irvin get through one segment without yelling incoherent babble out? Can Deion get through a segment without totally jocking or slamming somebody with his holier than than approach? It’s horrible!

  6. Orlandobucfan Says:

    I hope schiano taking the heat for this and the players seeing that he is in it with then will help him unite the team further and rally around the tough hard nosed attitude we now have.

  7. BucsNBeer Says:

    What about pretending like it was a fair catch, then taking off for the opponents endzone on a runback? Would that be violating an unwritten rule of the NFL?

  8. JBUC24 Says:

    It was a 1 score game, anything can happen and I stand behind Schiano’s decision! Had the game been out of reach, yes it would have been dirty, but it wasn’t. What happens if Manning fumbles and we pick it up and score, tie it and win the game in OT….all these talking heads would have said it was genius!

    I am sick of hearing “this isn’t college football”. The guy is bringing toughness and a don’t quit mentality to a team that was embarassing last year! Coach, I stand behind you on this one!

  9. BucFan20 Says:

    That’s it stupid. It unwritten. There is NO WHITE FLAG RULE !!! It’s unwritten that says with x amount of time left the team behind at that time must QUIT and GIVE UP!!!!!

  10. Posey99 Says:

    If any play was cheap it was the knee that was taken at the 1 yard line by the giants RB to burn the clock when he could have easily scored at TD.

  11. mr.t.50 Says:

    joe did you watch the short segment on sports center about the “end of game controversy” with merril hoge and and ron jaworski. they were talking about it and ron was for it and merril was not.

    it really seems like people are completely divided on the last play as if they were arguing over politics.

  12. lightningbuc Says:

    Dude got his ass beat by his wife – consider the source!

  13. Eric Says:

    Nothing to apologize about concerning the last play. However, forgiveness should be sought for the embarrassing defensive performance.

    Aqib would not have been raped that bad if he had gone to prison.

    Better get that and absolutely no pass rush fixed and quick.

  14. ksneil2000 Says:

    Joe is a homer. If this had been done on the bucs, and freeman or an o-lineman had been hurt, there’d be 5 articles on how the giants are shameful. You ARE allowed to say bad things about your own team. You don’t go after the qb in a kneel down situation, that’s stupid and it was ignorant. And trying to say it’s ironic coming from a guy like deion? You mean the greatest corner who ever lived and was a first ballot hall of famer? Yeah what would he know.

  15. simeon Says:

    Joe, i dont know where to ask this, so i’ll ask it here.


    Remember in 2010 when late in the game we ran him down the opposing team’s throat, when they were worn down and tired.

    I like Martin’s upside, but he has largely been ineffective, guy is averaging 3.6 yards a carry (44 for 161).

    The worst part about that game was Talib getting owned constantly and the continued blitz despite talib getting owned. He was getting away with a lot too.

    3rd and short bomb to i believe Cruz with Eric Wright blitzing?

    Game was heartbreaking, we should have won. We got outcoached badly.

    Another tough game on the road against an opponent in need of a win coming up.

  16. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    What about what Marshall Faulk said about it? Does his opinion mean more, since he never taunted anyone during his hall of fame career. What about Dungy? He didn’t like it either. You can trash the source all you like, but it is an unwritten rule. Again, as fans, we do not define what is dirty, nor what is unwritten. Even the commissioner can’t do that. That can only be defined by the players and coaches. If it happened to us and Carl Nicks got his knee chopped and was out for the season, I would bet my house every single one of you would be crying foul, and for good reason.

  17. Miguel Grande Says:

    If it wasn’t for that incredibly humiliating last play o the game, the Bucs would be excoriated for laying down two times on defense.

    The Glazers are probably getting some angry calls from the league office this morning. If I were the commissioner, the Little General would be fined heavily for those three plays. Possibly even suspended or double secret probation. I’ll bet it doesn’t happen again.

    Payton was suspended for a year for Bountygate.

  18. BucFan20 Says:

    And I bet you would be wrong.

  19. JMOON87 Says:

    Ditka, Golic, Jaworski ..alot of ex players and coaches have defended it .

  20. Gunner Eleven Says:

    This is getting out of control. There are a lot things to discuss following the Bucs-Giants, but this isn’t one of them. Sadly, this reminds me of the Sapp-Mike Sherman argument following the Packers-Bucs game several years ago. Aggressive Football is not dirty/cheap Football.

    Ask Herman Edwards if the kneel down play is just a formality.

  21. Sneedy16 Says:


    No one was hurt and if you doing would of. What if he would of fumbled? What if we would of scored on that fumble. Yeah it wasn’t ignorant it’s call tackle football not flag, and the last time I check the Bucs were down by 7 with time on the clock. Just because someone is a hall of famer doesn’t mean that he knows football it just means he as great at his position, if he was a coach then it would hold weight. I’m pretty sure Rich Eisen has more football knowledge that him and he never played a down of football.

  22. Oahubuc Says:

    Whenever Diva-on opens his mouth, my reaction is thus: Cool story, bro.

  23. bucsfan1979 Says:

    Joe: Just saw that the NFL saw no wrong doing on coach and bucs.. Tent Dilfer Didn’t like it at all but, who cares what he thinks.

  24. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    You are an idiot. The league is not going to do anything about the kneel down play, because it is within the rules. You cannot and should not fine someone if they aren’t breaking any rules. That’s assinine of you to even suggest that.

    As for the letting them score, perhaps you may have heard of a little thing called the Suoer Bowl. They play it every year. Last year, the Giants just so happened to play in the Suoer Bowl, and their opponent, the New England Patriots, allowed the Giants to score. You want to know why? Because if they didn’t, the Giants would run the clock down and kick a chip shot field goal to win the game. It’s called game strategy, and it almost worked.

    I ask again, would you call Schiano a Little General to his face? If not, then you are a coward and a phony. You criticize people on this site for calling you names, yet you call someone a name who isn’t even here to defend himself. This is a grown man (and woman) conversation, so we don’t need your agenda-driven babble messing it up. Go wash your “I love Chip Kelly” shirts and let the adults discuss.

  25. BucFan20 Says:

    So what would he be suspended for? Broke no written rules. Paid no players to hurt people. Had no knowledge anyone did. Sounds like Thomas 2.2 thinking to me.

  26. MegaDave Says:

    Unreal – Just watched the clip and I am SHOCKED at the idea that he thinks players need to be told “whistle to whistle”. It’s a game, you learn from day 1 that there are 60mins in a game and you give it your all for the whole time. Unreal <_<

  27. Nick Says:

    Sanders is another moron jock that thinks his opinion matters. You are entertainment, Neon nothing more.

    It’s amazing how every idiot than can run a 4.3 thinks some how that make his view mean something.

    Remember Neon, you the soft cupcake that would never tackle anyone, what do you know about hard nose football.

  28. Eric Says:

    This just in, schiano was caught trying to break into Eli’s house and dislodge the game ball.

    Overheard saying “it still ain’t over bitch”.

  29. bucfanjeff Says:

    I’m still stuck on the last play. Watch this at start at the 22 second mark:

    Ask yourself these questions:
    1)What about the Bucs defensive stance let’s you know that we are NOT going to make a push? Nobody is standing around.
    2)When Eli goes down how much time is left? Hint: 3 seconds
    3)Suppose Eli fumbles when going down, how many Bucs players are around Eli? Hint: Flanked by two, Wright and Talib. Think they could take it 25 yards to the house?
    4)Giants players said there is no way they fumble the snap, etc on that last play. Really? So you line up that guy behind Eli a little deep why exactly? JUST IN CASE something bad DOES happen?

    Guess what, we play 60 minutes…JUST IN CASE.

  30. Mike J Says:

    It was an unwritten rule that you went ahead and did it when indicating a spike at the time Marino faked the Jets and threw for a TD.
    Next-to-last boxing refs tell the fighters is, ”Protect your self at all times.”
    These ex-players & GMs & such get all PC when working for the goody-two-shoes media.Disregard.
    This thing will blow over in a week or less, in any event.

  31. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Still yet, no one is answering how you feel if we lost Nicks or Penn for the season if another team did this to us. We dove at their knees! That’s the problem people. On any play it can be considered dirty to dive and hit your helmet on their knees (remember the preseason game with the Pate anyone?), even more so on a kneel down. Watch the play again. Watch how our line dives at their knees. Watch how GMC gets punched in the back of the head. Is it worth that for the .01% chance (and that’s probably too high of a percentage) that the ball pops out and we return it for a TD? Make a push, fine. But don’t dive at their knees on a meaningless play. No good will come from it.

  32. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Marino’s fake spike was at the end of the first half. The spike was to kill the clock so they could take another shot at the end zone. I respect anyone’s argument to defend Schiano, but don’t use examples that are in no way related to the issue. It’s a completely different situation.

  33. BigMacAttack Says:

    I have a few choice words to describe Deion, but decorum forces me to refrain, and he is what he is. However, this is a burned up smudge pot with a hole in it calling the kettle black for sure. We’re talking about a loud mouth arrogant punk that beats his wife, yeah I said it, beats his wife. What kind of man does that? A man with severe insecurities and mental weakness, a man that cruises around his house on a scooter barking orders because he is too lazy too get off his A$$ and walk. I wouldn’t give you two $h!ts for this worthless piece of crap. If I saw him broke down on the side of the road, I’d push his Escalade in the ditch and drag him out and beat his A$$ like he beats women. I have no place in my world for wife beaters. Actually, my wife would probably beat his A$$. This guy is a punk bitch and I’m sick of his mouth.

    If Roger Goodell wants to protect the shield so badly, he should rid his network of scumbags like Deion, the Wife beater. And I’m sorry but loudmouth Warren Sapp isn’t much better. It is crying shame that idiots like this waste four years in college, can’t speak clearly with good grammar, and have such minuscule brains that they are a complete embarrassment to their employers and their families.

    Deion, if you want ignorant, look in the mirror. You’re a disgraceful pig.

  34. Eric Says:

    That’s a good point Hawaiian, perhaps it was questionable technique. Rush but don’t dive low, unless the snap is fumbled.

    I’d like to hear what guys like 55 and 47 think about it.

  35. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Tell us how you really feel BigMac, lol. Love your rants, they are always classic!!!

  36. Eric Says:

    And maybe the new Hooters spokesman could chime in….

  37. Miguel Grande Says:

    I would call him the Little General to his face, I’ve fought 100’s of rounds in MMA and I’m not small. I fear no man.

    It’s a play on words alluding to the original “Little General”, Napoleon Bonaparte. Also, there used to be convenience stores in Florida whose caricature logo was a kid in oversized officer’s clothing and that bicorne hat. Little general store, get it.

    I’m not saying it necessarily to be detrimental, it could be a positive nickname. Actually, Napoleon was known as the most competent man who ever lived. I simply recognized early, his Napoleonic complex.

    The more foolish he looks as weeks go by, is on him, not I.

  38. BigMacAttack Says:

    I would also like to say that if Eli or his linemen had been hurt, it may have been a different story, but they weren’t and no harm, no foul. In boxing and MMA, refs say “Protect yourself at all times”. Shame on the Giants here for not being prepared. It’s also funny that Scale Face Coughlin didn’t want to talk about the cheap Headshot laid on Vincent Jackson, with intent to injure. The deender didn’t even try to go low, left his feet, went high and clearly aimeed for the Head.

    What a bunch of whiny MthrFkrs is all I can say. What about the face mask tackle by the Giants late in the game that stopped our drive on 3’rd down? Not called, but a game changing play no less.

    Schiano’s mistake was that he opens his team up to the same attacking defense when they are in Victory formation, but again, be prepared, and protect yourself at all times.

    Another example of the Wussification of America. Let the big bombs fly, covered in pigs blood.

  39. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    So let me get this straight Miguel: You climb mountains. You run marathons. You are a 59 year old MMA fighter. You have cured cancer and diabetes by eating marijuana. You fear no man. You are the most interesting man in the world. I really enjoy your beer commercials.

  40. BigMacAttack Says:

    Hawaiian Buc, I’ll drink to that. Also the smartest man in the world.

    He is one bad mutha………shut yo mouth!

    He must have been fighting guys like Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock when he was in his 40’s. I bet Miguel can walk on water too.

    100’s of rounds at 3 rounds per fight, hell that’s over 30 fights. Brain Damage for sure………… major brain damage.

  41. BigMacAttack Says:

    Oh yeah, Go Freakin Bucs!!!

    Hell yeah!

    This team is getting better and will kick some butt. Shake it off and move on to the next game. Cowgirls.

  42. Tyler Says:

    You know what’s funny the NFL which owns NFL network even said tht their would be no punishment and that they approve of what they did their IS NO UNWRITTEN RULES YOU GO FROM THE FIRST TICK OF THE CLOCK TO THE DAMN LAST the only team in the NFL that complains about this stuff is the giants for a team that declares their physical(and almost killed Vincent Jackson with a very bad WRITTEN RULE of a hit)they need to stop being a bunch of pansies and man up this is football not soccer lik or leave and I dnt take anything Deion and that large mouth says he needs to insert a new filter between his brain and mouth.

  43. BigMacAttack Says:

    A well known and respected Grand Master I know, used to say when people asked him what he knew about martial arts. He would tell them “I don’t know as much as I would like to know, but I probably know more than you think I do”. He walked very softly, but definitely carried and Armored Tank Division.

    Always watch the triangle (some of you will understand this) and beware of the small wiry guys that don’t look like much. They will do you in every time.

  44. BucFan20 Says:

    Ok Hawaiian I will say it. You play 60 mins. You should be ready for anything. If it had been one of our players shame on our coach for not getting them ready. Anything can happen at any time. Who ever came up with the unwritten white flag rule, that’s their problem. If other teams are down by 7 or 3 and want to quit, that’s on their coach.

    They did nothing illegal and did not try with intent to hurt other players.

  45. Miguel Grande Says:


    I would agree with your Grand Master. One of the most respected fighters I personally knew was Bill “Superfoot” Wallace. He and Chuck Norris could attend a martial arts tournament, thousands of people would flock around Norris while Bill and I watched 5 year old orange belts spar.

    Bill was far more famous and revered as a fighter internationally but never craved the spotlight. He was a hero of mine.

    My Sensei was a mild mannered unassuming guy who could break your neck in an instant with an axe kick.

    Is the triangle you speak of, the Hachiman? I always wore one on my gi.

  46. KT Says:

    I don’t agree with the call, as I don’t agree with a lot of NFL rules but that is a defenseless man just like the VJ hit when he was defenseless. If that happened to freeman and he was trying to win the game everyone on here would have finger and thumb strain from the constant lashing out at the opposing team, the refs and the nfl. But how about this, where was all this aggressiveness and playing whistle to whistle on the offense for the WHOLE 2nd half, how about more than martin up the middle 2 times then a bad pass and put for the whole 2nd half. Poor play calling, offensively and defensively is far more important than that last play.

  47. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Ive watched that last play over and over and I have yet to see anyone dive at anyones knees. They had 10 guys on the line of scrimmage.. the middle of the line dove low in an attempt to get to the ball not to injure anyone. The others tried to shoot around the sides… there is nothing cheap or bush league about this play other than the Giants crying like little girls over it.

  48. sandbagrudy Says:

    Come on man is he talking about pulprit pimping or football? unwritten rules of wearing guady suits and talking jive. who can understand what the hell he’s saying anyhow? ebonix and hooked on self promoting when the hell did this blog become a martial arts spout off anyhow? who the heel cares about chuck norris and any other pajama wearing sissy can any of those lames play 84 snaps and stop the run bat down a few passes or sack a quaterback

  49. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    I didnt agree with it at first. Remember Coach took a knee three times at the end of the Panthers game. But you know what? I am not the Coach. Schiano is, and however he wants to play thats fine. My opinion, he played too conservative in the third quarter and was pixxed at himself. So, what? Its over and time to fly to Dallas.
    But he better fix that secondary before we play Denver, or the other Manning will rip us a new one.

  50. gt40bear Says:

    Ignorant is as ignorant does! Dude can’t put two coherent sentences together and he’s calling someone else ignorant? Fly away with your fairy wings there PT.

  51. Bucnjim Says:

    I think most fans are missing the point! It is about developing a physical mentality. If the Steelers or Ravens did the same thing; no one would say a word. Since it’s the lay down and roll over Bucs (of last year) how dare they even try such a thing. If you want the Sapp, Lynch, Brooks hard hitting Defense of the past; then you have to develop a winning attitude which includes very physical play and never excepting losing.

    Hawiian; It’s not about the play itself; it’s about changing an entire philosophy. Go hard all day every day or go home. I’m not happy with the outcome, but the progress this team is making is like some have said a breath of fresh air compared to the last regime. Telling them to lay down is against EVERYTHING this man stands for and I’m good with that.

  52. Colorado Buc Says:

    I remember the good ole days when Deion was getting arrested for walking out of the Edison Mall with a pair of diamond earrings he forgot to pay for, or when he was arrested for fishing for Large mouth bass at the Fort Myers airport. Everytime opens his mouth he looks like an idiot.

  53. 1976Buc Says:

    Coughlin’s team got caught with their pants down around their ankles. Anyone that has played the game knows if you are one score down the game is not over. If your attitude is any different you’re a quitting loser. If you are on offense you throw the hail mary….if you are on defense you try to force a fumble. Anything less is for quitters!

  54. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    I also remember the Patriots a few years back during the VideoGate scandal, beating the Dolphins 52-0 taking a knee at the end of the game and then fakd it and threw for another touchdown. Everyone, and I mean everyone in the media said Belechick plays to win for 60 min. They then slammed the Dolphins for giving up. Screw them, lets play 60 minutes of football.

  55. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Why would we send all 11 players to the line if we wern’t planning to try something?….I think Coughlin was upset because we crippled 3 or 4 of their players earlier.
    We better be ready for teams to do that to us….& I hope they have many chances….

  56. BigMacAttack Says:

    If Schiano would have been down by 10, 14 or 21 points, I don’t think he would have made that call. He was within 1 score and it was definitely a sneak attack. I loved it, but that’s just me.

    I also agree they played too conservatively on offense when they still had a lead. When Mike Will came up 1 yd short on 3’rd down at the 50, Schiano punted quickly without thinking it through, IMO. I would have went for it to try and seal the game. Josh is big and on a QB sneak over the top behind Nicks and Zuttah he could have got the first down. I like a boom quick snap on a QB sneak also while the D line is still jockeying around. Remember Schiano is still a Rookie Coach and he has learn that in the NFL sometimes you have to risk it against elite teams with elite QB’s or your going to lose anyway.

    Give credit where it’s due, Eli shredded us and his WR’s are awesome, even though our DB’s should have done a better job. Live and learn. I’m sure they will and do better next week, Coaches included. This really is no big deal as long as they can bounce back stronger.

  57. Bucnjim Says:

    As far as Deion goes; he was the poster child for avoiding physical play. Great talent, but his mouth and his actions were that of a pompous A$$. Made a career out of trying to show boat and humiliate other teams so his opinion doesn’t count.

  58. BigMacAttack Says:

    Bill Wallace was amazing, fastest round kicks ever. There are triangle chokes yes, blah blah blah, but here is a good article that describes the triangle very well. Not so much for MMA, but hand to hand combat in real life situations. This has been around for a very long time and I first learned much of this as a young Marine before I went to sniper school. This guy below describes this technique better than I’ve seen written anywhere before.

  59. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    You mean the greatest corner who ever lived and was a first ballot hall of famer? Yeah what would he know.

    Sorry but deion isnt the greatest CB who ever lived. Not even close. I will give him props because he is the greatest CB who could pick off passes without a doubt. But what about those plays where he didnt make the pick?… As far as being a all around CB he sucked. There are quite a few corners playing right now I would take over him.

  60. HighNtight Says:


    Would I be pissed if Nicks went down? Yes. Would I think it was bush league? Not if the circumstances were identical. I would think our O line is prepared for that play considering we coach our defense to perform it. Fact of the matter is Eli got knocked on his ass, to me this shows that the play wasn’t that far from working. Additionally the most bush league play of the game was the helmet to helmet on VJ. Which WILL receive a large fine this week. F the Giants and F Tom Bend over and Coughlin. Schiano should’ve punched his old ass right in the teeth and given him something piss and moan about. They keep track of the amount of time left for a reason, to tell us when to stop playing. I LOVED the play! I will continue to buy tickets to see this team play.

  61. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Fair enough. I see your side, and I’m about 49% with you. My biggest (and really only) fear is that we will be have another team take a cheap shot at us for revenge. These guys are a fraternity, and I don’t think that’s out of the question. Tom Jackson actually said that it WILL happen. That scares me. We are paper thin when it comes to depth, and I fear that losing even one player in certain positions could be catastrophic. However, in theory, I also love the fact that we don’t quit. Let’s all just hope that situation never comes up again, as nothing is much worse than watching another team in victory formation.

  62. MTM Says:

    Schiano is doing a great job of motivating players. I can see Deion’s point he doesn’t have any real commentary skills so jump on this one. Prime go back and put on the fairy suite apparently Direct TV saw your tackling skills when auditioning for the fairy part.

  63. ChefPaul Says:

    I gotta admit, if it happened to us, and someone got hurt, I would be ticked. But in that situation I think it would be homer thinking. In this situation, it’s logical thinking. I know it sounds biased but one side is logical and one side isn’t. I think the logical side is that there was nothing wrong with the play. Like Golic said, if it was a 2 possession game, then I’d have a problem with it

  64. ChefPaul Says:

    It’s funny on NFL network they keep showing Coughlin (post game locker room speach) praising HIS team for not giving up. Kind of ironic don’t you think?

  65. Paul Says:

    Instead of saying that we play 60min, he should’ve just said that we were trying to get a fumble. Now he’s cornered himself into being a hypocrite everytime our offense kneels.

  66. Mike J Says:

    Hawaiian Buc . I did not mean that they are directly comparable, just that ”unwritten rules” always end up non-rules, in the event.They are thus comparable.

  67. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Mike J,

    Yeah, I got that. However, I don’t recall it ever being an unwritten rule that you don’t defend on a spike attempt. In fact, it wasn’t. There was no controversy from that play because it’s a totally different situation. The game is not over. I get where you are coming from, but it’s not a very good comparison because their differences are night and day.

  68. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Instead of saying that we play 60min, he should’ve just said that we were trying to get a fumble. Now he’s cornered himself into being a hypocrite everytime our offense kneels.
    Not true at all. If you kneel that means you are winning, therefore you have no reason to continue to play… just like the Giants. Only difference is that the line still needs to block. We were losing therefore we had a reason to KEEP playing… Have you seen an offense kneel when they were losing? Doesnt make sense does it?

  69. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Have you seen an offense kneel when they were losing?”


    I saw some Bucs games last year where I was almost hoping we would.

  70. SilenceTheCritics Says:


  71. Garv Says:

    Sanders is as pompous and irrelevant as “Joe.”
    Proceed to delete asshole.

  72. 1976Buc Says:

    @Hawaiian: Hahaha. Now that’s just funny right there I don’t care who you are.

  73. King Says:

    Just saw an article on PFT that Rutgers was able to cause a fumble twice using that play. Props to coach for sticking to his beliefs and not making excuses for what has worked for him already in the past. Granted this isn’t college football, but it kind of blows the 1 in a million chance of it working out of the water.
