Bucs At Vikings, Open Thread

October 25th, 2012

OK boys and girls. It’s Thursday night and you probably can’t come to Tilted Kilt to drink with Joe. Stinks for you.

However, that doesn’t mean Bucs fans both young and old can’t participate in this here open thread as the Bucs square off against the Vikings in the wintry air of October under the warm glow of a soulless dome.

Have at it. Let all the world know what you think of how the game is transpiring.

And above all else, have fun!

Can the Bucs stop Adrian Peterson?

Can Donald Penn stop Jared Allen?

Was it dumb of the Bucs to activate Da’Quan Bowers so soon?

Can Josh Freeman throw for over 250 yards against one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL?

Will the fate of so many travelings teams playing on Thursday nights continue to haunt the NFL, along with the Bucs?

Inquiring minds want to know.

    Tonight is the night to earn some respect on national television.

  2. canadianbuc Says:

    Must win……..We cant go 2-5

  3. Bucnnole Says:

    Three MUSTS to win tonight.1) MUST not turn the ball over 2)MUST tackle. Stop the run and be aggresive. 3) MUST establish an effective run game. Difficult tasks to acheive but if these are done, then Bucs will win.

    “Bucs defense cant cover a sole” -deon sanders

  5. SensibleBuc Says:

    I wanna see some screens tonight. Slow down that pass rush.

  6. SensibleBuc Says:

    Outside of Harvin are they really going to be able to exploit our pass D? Ponder and the Vikes receivers dont exactly strike fear in my heart right now

  7. SensibleBuc Says:

    Kick it out of the endzone Mike lol

  8. SensibleBuc Says:

    Hey 3 & out!

  9. 1976Buc Says:

    Guess a little “dancing” at the line is not so bad. Peterson makes it look good.

  10. SensibleBuc Says:

    VJax had one on one coverage with Terrence Newman. Free has to keep going through his progressions.

  11. SensibleBuc Says:

    GREAT pressure!!! Woo hoo we look good

  12. Nate Says:

    lets go BOWERS!

  13. SensibleBuc Says:

    C’MON DOUG!!!!!!!!!

  14. SensibleBuc Says:

    YES EFFING SIR!!!!! Teach me how to Dougie!

  15. raphael Says:

    muscle Hamster !!


    WHAT A RUN!!!



  18. SensibleBuc Says:

    How much you wanna bet we DON”T see Blount on the goalline? LOL

  19. rrsrq Says:

    gotta take advaantage of this

  20. rrsrq Says:

    c’mon Josh, play he has to mae. Good to see Connor back

  21. SensibleBuc Says:

    I REALLY didn’t like that decision. The corner was already backed off. Not sure why theyre not going after Terrance Newman vs. VJax.

  22. poolfixer70 Says:

    OK 3


    Shiano said earlier that they were going to “re-evaluate the Blount/ goalline thing.

  24. SensibleBuc Says:


  25. SensibleBuc Says:


  26. poolfixer70 Says:

    parrish cut tomorrow


    Specials not looking good

  28. SensibleBuc Says:

    I swear VJax is open every play

  29. SensibleBuc Says:

    We look terrible on offense. The first one to score wins.

  30. SteveK Says:

    We need Freeman to lock in. His touch is off.

  31. poolfixer70 Says:




  33. raphael Says:

    nice throw Free !

  34. SensibleBuc Says:

    ….and right on cue. VJax. Throw it to him every play.

  35. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Just asking a question guys…
    … does Freeman ever hit receivers in stride?

  36. SteveK Says:

    Here we go!

  37. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Is the protection that bad? appears Freeman taking a # of hits?

  38. SensibleBuc Says:


    He hit Underwood on a cross in stride last series and Dougie just now… but for the most part no 🙂

  39. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Oh dear god here we go first and goal on the 1 again

  40. Jamaica Buc Says:

    GO BUCS – Clark!
    Big catch

  41. SensibleBuc Says:

    I wanna see Doug Martin in on every play here…

  42. SensibleBuc Says:


  43. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Thank you we can score from the 1

  44. poolfixer70 Says:

    okay this works



  46. Jamaica Buc Says:

    wow – I’m speechless …

  47. raphael Says:

    Eff YEAH !

  48. SensibleBuc Says:

    Man when we’re not shooting ourselves in the foot we’re a tough team to beat!

  49. Jamaica Buc Says:

    think we can use another punt fumble recovery to get good field position?

  50. Rican Says:

    I’m sorry to say I don’t think Blount should take reps from Doug anymore.
    Free has been looking great since the bye week. I pray that it was just the system that had free pretty bad early on. I will gladly eat that crow if Free stays growing.


    Keep kickin those touchbacks

  52. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ Rican

    Hey buddy welcome back to the club! Free’s getting hit every play, he hasn’t been perfect but he’s getting the job done.

  53. BucNeckid Says:


  54. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    @sensible buc
    No truer statement can be made

  55. SensibleBuc Says:

    AD is gonna pop one…oops spoke to soon.

  56. SensibleBuc Says:

    Well done EJ!

  57. SensibleBuc Says:


  58. SensibleBuc Says:

    Look at that replay! The Red Swarm defense!!!

  59. stimoy Says:

    That was Biggers that got the ball loose.

  60. stimoy Says:


  61. Jamaica Buc Says:

    dodged a bullet… Mr Freeman

  62. SensibleBuc Says:

    Yeah you can tell Dotson is a former bball player. Sheesh.

  63. raphael Says:

    that wasn’t free ..RT has to cut

  64. SensibleBuc Says:

    Can we just talk about the plethora of formations and looks we have going on? Sully and the offense are looking better and more fluid every week.

  65. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    That’s why Doug should get 90% of the carries he fights and I haven’t seen him lose any yards even when he is met in the backfield. Blount dances Doug finds the and then hits the whole and keeps moving

  66. Bucnnole Says:

    Am I the only fan out there that gets absolutely sick of Freeman acting like its everyone else’s fault when we had a bad throw. Yes Josh, you threw it directly into the line of scrimmage. No one else’s fault but your own. Period!

  67. raphael Says:

    Agreed Orlando

  68. stimoy Says:


    Agreed sir! Looking very good.

  69. SensibleBuc Says:

    Free’s Stats: 6-12 for 55 yards and a touch. Doug: 8 carries 69 yards. That’ll do men. That’ll do.

  70. stimoy Says:

    AP isn’t the only one running angry.

  71. poolfixer70 Says:

    ride the hamster

  72. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ poolfixer70


  73. SensibleBuc Says:

    Damnit we missed an open guy on that Benn’d around

  74. stimpy Says:

    Come on Free!

  75. SensibleBuc Says:

    Great decision. Lets take the 3

  76. 941Gator Says:

    I love that play by Freeman! Get us to within 40 yards for field goal and Barth is money! Take the points. Smart play!

  77. Rican Says:

    Well it was both Free and the blockers fault. The blocker need to CUTT him but Free needs to be more aware.

  78. raphael Says:

    that throw to benn was behind or he would of caught it I think

  79. Bobby Says:

    Now….can we actually keep a lead this game?? I think against the Vikes…yes.

  80. stimpy Says:

    Come on D, bend, dont brake!

  81. SensibleBuc Says:


  82. Jamaica Buc Says:

    they just “ripped” through our defense

  83. Jamaica Buc Says:

    we need to score TD’s when we get in the Red Zone!

  84. Bucnnole Says:

    So glad we gave Eric Wright that big money, long term contract. He’s such a turd.

  85. canadianbuc Says:

    @bobby…………..Not so fast with adrian peterson and percy harvin

  86. raphael Says:



    C’mon… Dont collapse this early D!!

  88. poolfixer70 Says:

    just answer

  89. CaliBucFan Says:

    Of all the corners on the market this year, we got that one.

  90. snook Says:

    Time to sit on the lead!!!

  91. poolfixer70 Says:

    what 3 yards deep

  92. SensibleBuc Says:

    JESUS BENN do you even want to try? I’m going to start printing up some “Free Michael Smith” T-shirts.

  93. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Would love to know how a 6’6” QB gets balls batted down so often…

  94. BucNeckid Says:

    Chris Simms @QB tonight

  95. BucNeckid Says:

    Chris Simms @QB tonight


    hes not looking in front of him

  97. stimpy Says:

    C’mon offense…drive down the field.

  98. BucNeckid Says:

    Momentum has changed

  99. stimpy Says:

    When has Ware done anything?

  100. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Yes every time freeman makes a mistake like throws it into someone he always throws his hands up like its someone else’s fault.

  101. poolfixer70 Says:

    that screen would have gone for 50

  102. BucNeckid Says:

    Freeman STILL looks too hard at his first receiver

  103. BucNeckid Says:

    Freeman STILL looks too hard at his first receiver

  104. 1976Buc Says:

    If we picked up Ware for his blocking we should cut him at halftime.

  105. Jamaica Buc Says:

    that’s how we let momentum slip …
    We needed a couple of 1st downs.
    The D has to setup against AP and Co. again

  106. SensibleBuc Says:

    Got to love the DJ Ware trifecta of whiffing completely on the chip, stumbling, and having the ball whiz right by his hands. I swear he does this every week.

  107. stimpy Says:

    Need an Interception!

  108. BucNeckid Says:

    Captain Obvious here-
    We need a defensive stand

  109. SensibleBuc Says:


  110. stimpy Says:


  111. BucNeckid Says:


  112. poolfixer70 Says:

    hell yeah

  113. 1976Buc Says:

    Barber is a veteran!



  115. GenocideD Says:

    Ronde is awesome.

  116. SensibleBuc Says:

    Catch the ball Doug!

  117. SensibleBuc Says:

    NASTY stiff arm.

  118. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Martin is close to his first 100 yard game or am I wrong? Dont remember him having one yet.



  120. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    Lets go Bucs. Punch it in

  121. poolfixer70 Says:

    ride the muscle hamster

  122. SensibleBuc Says:


    Nope. Got close against the Panties (95 yards) but that’s as close as he’s gotten.

  123. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Seriously why does Blount get touches maybe joe will write an article about giving Doug most of the carries.
    And how old is ronde he seems like he’s playing for his job.

  124. raphael Says:

    wonder if blount get the call ? lol

  125. poolfixer70 Says:

    Ronde is playing for a statue

  126. SensibleBuc Says:

    Fade to VJax?

  127. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    What a catch mike Williams TD

  128. SensibleBuc Says:

    Fade to Money Mike…just like I said.

  129. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Martin appears to be at 92 yds at present

  130. Nate Says:

    Mike Williams is da bomb!

  131. poolfixer70 Says:

    the body control Wow

  132. 1976Buc Says:

    Martin is having a great game.

  133. rrsrq Says:

    I hope Koenen’s leg doesn’t get tired, then again maybe so

  134. stimpy Says:

    Get a sack D!

  135. SensibleBuc Says:

    Remember when national pundits laughed at us for paying Koenen so much money? Yeah me neither.

  136. rrsrq Says:

    what call was that, Mike bennett in coverage

  137. rrsrq Says:

    way to go Daniel i can’t pronounce your last name

  138. stimpy Says:

    you just got blown up!!!

  139. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ rrsrq

    Yeah you live by the blitz you die by the blitz

  140. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Ronde Barber field at Raymond James stadium any takers?

  141. rrsrq Says:

    why does the pash rush for the Bucs always leave an outside lane within the pocket for the qb to throw

  142. Bucnnole Says:

    Who would’ve ever thought that Leonard Johnson would be the best corner the Bucs have in the field.

  143. SensibleBuc Says:


  144. GenocideD Says:

    How did we not challenge that interception, he caught it!!!

  145. stimpy Says:

    That looked like an INT.

  146. DallasBuc Says:

    How that int wasn’t reviewed under 2 minutes?

  147. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ GenocideD

    Booth review after 2 minute warning.

  148. GenocideD Says:

    Then how was it not reviewed! WTFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

  149. Stanglassman Says:

    I want to see that again at least!

  150. GenocideD Says:

    Joe better write an article about how we just got hosed.

  151. SensibleBuc Says:

    Over a hundy for Dougie!

  152. 1976Buc Says:

    That should be 100. Congrats Martin.



  154. Jamaica Buc Says:

    hundred yards for Martin at this point

  155. SensibleBuc Says:

    We’re scoring on this drive


    100… SORRY

  157. SensibleBuc Says:


  158. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    So freeman almost throws a pick and yells at underwood. Hell even if he runs the wrong route he was covered and almost threw a pick.

    Doug Martin 100+ yards in the first half. Um I think Blount can get cozy where he is.

  159. rrsrq Says:

    let’s go Bucs

  160. SensibleBuc Says:


    I’m not going to kill Josh for that. Tom Brady does the same stuff and nobody gives him crap

  161. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    I wonder how many showed at Tilted Kilt ?
    I really wanted to go, but couldn’t.

  162. Nate Says:

    why is our best player a zillion years old!

  163. BucNeckid Says:

    Nice first half

  164. J 2.0 Says:

    Bucs looking great in the first half. I knew they would be capable of outplaying an overrated Vikings team, but they need to do it for 4 quarters. Halfway there. Lets Go Bucs!!!

  165. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Agreed but tom Brady wins games and is at a totally different class of quarterback when josh gets there than maybe he earns the respect to blame others for almost throwing a pick.

  166. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    22 is getting some love from Mayock. Well deserved. He will have abt 200 yards tonight. Dont get sloppy Bucs

  167. BucNeckid Says:

    Anybody think Ronde plays next year?

  168. BucNeckid Says:

    Anybody think Ronde plays next year?

  169. Thomas Says:

    No review on the INT which it definitely was!

  170. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Is anyone saying there’s nothing special about Doug Martin anymore? There sure were a whole bunch of you a couple weeks ago.

  171. Stanglassman Says:

    I love doug martin effort to get that first down, stiff arm, hurdle and a dive. Wow.

  172. Thomas Says:

    Martin runs that stretch play really well. Once defenses start keying on it he will be able to gash the middle and run downhill more which I think will be huge once they can mix it back and forth!

  173. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Who is taking Doug Martin with 160+ yards rushing this game?

  174. Bucnnole Says:

    Keep getting creative with the blitz in the second half on D and get the ball into V.Jax and D.Clark more on O.

  175. J 2.0 Says:

    Can we give some props to this coaching staff. Even if we lose this game, which is very possible, our team is so much better than last year it isn’t even funny. Sullivan seems to have a good gauge on the offense, and I think we are 1 more good draft away frrom a really good defense. GO BUCS!!!

  176. Big Picture Guy Says:

    IDK if Martin will rack up ALL the yards… don’t forget about Blount coming in to close it out late

  177. Thomas Says:

    agreed J 2.0

    I’m very excited for the near future as well.

  178. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @J 2.0,
    I agree 100%, but that will never happen, especially not on this board.

  179. poolfixer70 Says:

    run and rest martin in the second half blount can break one also

  180. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    @ J2.0
    I absolutely agree at this point we are miles ahead of last year. Physically and mentally.

  181. poolfixer70 Says:

    differing looks kinda smart now

  182. DallasBuc Says:

    Ponder showing some good accuracy and decisions tonight under pressure. Can’t understand why they aren’t leaning on AP more. F’n idiots!!
    That Mike Williams TD was play of the year for this team so far. Hope we can finish. Lets go TAMPA!!!

  183. 911bucs Says:

    Please please keep this up guys

  184. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Nooooo not Blount leave Martin in. Why change the pace of our running game.

  185. poolfixer70 Says:

    oh I get it the bucs are testing benns knee with the kneel downs

  186. Jamaica Buc Says:

    need some first downs to start the second half.
    Good to see Clark getting involved

  187. Thomas Says:


  188. poolfixer70 Says:

    oh nevermind

  189. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Doug my favorite Martin is playing an unbelievable game!!!!!!!!

  190. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    ok, maybe 22 will get 290 yards tonight

  191. canadianbuc Says:


  192. Jamaica Buc Says:

    I saw the call Orlando – Martin a buck sixty plus …

  193. stimpy Says:

    170 yds!!!!!!

    GO DOUGIE!!!!!!!

  194. Bobby Says:

    Let’s not even mention Blount in the same breath as Martin anymore OK?

  195. poolfixer70 Says:

    dude can read blocks

  196. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Joe must be going berserk now!

  197. rrsrq Says:

    teachem how to Dougie, Dougie, Dougie

  198. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Offense has been looking better last few games. This is the first real defense we’ve seen in awhile.

  199. Jamaica Buc Says:


  200. stimpy Says:

    ha ha go booo birds go

  201. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    @ Jamaica
    I totally agree I was thinking the same thing. Joes Blount parade just got stalled by the hamster.

  202. BucFanFromLa Says:

    Martin! Martin! Martin!

  203. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Should we put Blount in now, because I’m not sure Martin is special.

  204. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Yeah I agree Martin hasn’t proven himself I’m sure there will be some kind of article saying why didn’t we rest Martin or Blount could do the same thing.

  205. bucsfaninchina Says:

    Christian ponder is about to harness his inner Drew Brees and take it over

  206. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    Go 22, hit that hole

  207. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    Running game is opening up the passing game

  208. Rican Says:

    Lol Blount has terrible vision

  209. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Blount with the 1 yard gain!!! Seriously!!!

  210. SensibleBuc Says:

    Twinkle Toes Blount

  211. Jamaica Buc Says:

    chewing up the clock on this drive!

  212. poolfixer70 Says:

    minus the time out a touchdown

  213. 941BucGator Says:

    Do you haters ever get tired? This team is on its way up! Get on the ship or get off!

  214. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Don’t be so glum China Buc fan…
    … what’s been good is that the D is getting some time to rest, as the offense is using up the clock

  215. poolfixer70 Says:

    get the ball up josh

  216. SensibleBuc Says:

    5 wides?!? Who? Wha?

  217. Jamaica Buc Says:

    … we could have used that 1st down

  218. GenocideD Says:

    Hmmmmm. Almost appears that we’re imposing our will…

  219. Jamaica Buc Says:

    same thing the announcer’s said @poolfixer about putting up the ball higher and V-Jax using his height

  220. rrsrq Says:

    check the tape – i have not seen the Bucs run a successful play after a time out, offensively or defensively – but they are playing a good game for the national audience, of course the national media will talk about how bad the Vikings played versus how good the Bucs are playing (so far)

  221. Jamaica Buc Says:

    we’re halfway thru the 3rd quarter

  222. Stanglassman Says:

    Great T.O. on a 1st down play to change it to that? Jackson almost got his knee done for the year.

  223. Jamaica Buc Says:

    WOW – the kicker just preserved our LEAD!
    We have to continue to play SOUND football

  224. Bucobruce Says:

    Lets go Bucs Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  225. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Block in the back?

  226. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Arrggghhh. we let the Vikes back in the game

  227. rrsrq Says:

    Ok D, we gave them one, let’s get it back on the O

  228. Bucnnole Says:


  229. DallasBuc Says:

    Damn!! There goes that comfortable lead and run stop avg. We need to answer. We need to finish!

  230. 941BucGator Says:

    Yall are terrible fans. Tampa is a horrible sports town because of fair weather fans. Yes AD just scored but I believe our TEAM WILL PREVAIL! GO BUCS!!!

  231. Stanglassman Says:

    The coaches getting too cute with the T.O. and risky blitz. Game day coaching needs some work.

  232. snook Says:

    That’s a block in the back if a Buc makes that block.

  233. SteveK Says:

    Ellllets go Freeman. Keep airing it out. We need to keep the pressure.

  234. Aceofaerospace Says:

    It’s so tough to be a Bucs fan because you can’t enjoy a 13 point lead because we are just one play away from being one play away from losing this game.

  235. poolfixer70 Says:

    bad throw

  236. stimpy Says:

    Thats twice Free has thrown low…c’mon Free

  237. stimpy Says:

    Momentum shift…

  238. rrsrq Says:

    why get conservative

  239. 911bucs Says:

    special teams need some work

  240. rrsrq Says:

    way to go mase

  241. Jamaica Buc Says:

    need a STOP

  242. Rican Says:

    Lets not blow this lead please Bucs. Our hearts can only take so much!

  243. rrsrq Says:

    great three and out

  244. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Great stuff D

  245. Stanglassman Says:

    Way to come out and play with confidence defense and get a 3 and out.

  246. 911bucs Says:

    OK the vikes have our run game figured out. Throw the ball

  247. raphael Says:

    penn just said biotch

  248. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    This is hard nosed buc ball

  249. rrsrq Says:

    big nasty

  250. stimpy Says:

    Game on!

  251. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    I don’t know who said it but I don’t think ponder has any bit of drew breese in him.

  252. rrsrq Says:

    the d covered the O’s behind

  253. DallasBuc Says:

    Couple crucial 3 and outs for our D

  254. Rican Says:

    Taking him out when he was hot was a bad idea.

  255. rrsrq Says:

    this is where Josh has to be a player and get this crowd out of it, make a play

  256. Ultra conservative Says:

    Bucs playing not to lose again.

  257. Bobby Says:

    I don’t like us getting conservative. Keep on pushing the ball down the field. Minnesota has shown they can strike quickly.

  258. Stanglassman Says:

    We need a good play call here.

  259. DallasBuc Says:

    Our O line is getting trashed on every play. Not Freeman’s fault or Dougies

  260. DallasBuc Says:

    Except for that play!!! Nice job tampa

  261. SteveK Says:

    Big throw to VJ. Dump it off on a screen Allen’s way.

  262. 941BucGator Says:


  263. Rican Says:

    Please get him out. Run Lorig for goodness sake just not him.

    What is wrong with blount? hes awful!

  265. snook Says:

    Blount in game. Clear sign that we don’t want anymore points.

  266. GenocideD Says:

    I love Blount but he’s just not getting anything done…

  267. 1976Buc Says:

    Hard to believe we cut Underwood.

  268. DallasBuc Says:

    Shhhhhh douche bagsshhhhh

  269. canadianbuc Says:

    Hes not a bad player but hes playing he’s been playing really bad

  270. Stanglassman Says:

    Wow I didn’t know josh could roll out.

  271. 941BucGator Says:

    Ohh I am a douche for cheering for the BUCS and being positive haha

  272. Rican Says:

    Oh shut up lol. No ones saying anything but that Martin needs to be in the game. Even on that run he neary broke it.

  273. 941BucGator Says:

    I will be relentless against haters! Mike Williams in your face!

  274. SensibleBuc Says:


  275. Patrick Says:



  276. DallasBuc Says:

    Amazing catch again

  277. raphael Says:

    nice throw and catch

  278. 1976Buc Says:

    Nothing in the running game for anyone. O-Line looking tired.

  279. raphael Says:

    can we run to the right ?

  280. raphael Says:

    can we run to the right ?

  281. Bobby Says:

    That’s what I like to see.

  282. SensibleBuc Says:

    I was JUST thinking, “Hey when’s the last time we threw a slant?” Boom. Well done Sully.

  283. DallasBuc Says:

    You are a d bag for using the word hater and your incessant complaining!! Be a fan. Let us be fans too. Ahole

  284. Rican Says:

    It’s may not be much by its much more than what Blount would be getting.

  285. Nate Says:

    Mike williams has showup big this year!

  286. Stanglassman Says:

    I hear a whistle at the snap on every big play. Did we call a TO or what?

  287. rrsrq Says:

    C,mon Bucs. We need a TD here

  288. GenocideD Says:

    We have Carl Nicks on the left side. I’m fine running to the left every play. 😉 j/k

  289. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Even if we only get three (which is not what I want) the time we took off the clock was huge!!!!!!

  290. GenocideD Says:

    Give it to Blount from the one!!!!

  291. SensibleBuc Says:


  292. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Thats how you fight for yards and thats why Blount shouldnt get many carries.
    Doug my favorite hamster martin

  293. 1976Buc Says:

    Great job Martin.

  294. Stanglassman Says:

    What a drive!

  295. Rican Says:

    Yea Muscle Hampster!!!

  296. DallasBuc Says:

    Dougie is something special. Awesome way to answer with long drive and a TD!!

  297. rrsrq Says:

    That is a TD and a great drive, Josh showed up big time…

  298. SensibleBuc Says:

    Doug has over 200 total yards today.

  299. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Does anyone think Joe will call for more Blount carries this week somehow justify getting blount the ball more.

  300. SensibleBuc Says:

    Dude doesn’t even look tired.

  301. BucNeckid Says:

    What a drive!

  302. BucNeckid Says:

    If defense pitches a 3 and out,
    Game over

  303. Rican Says:

    Don’t know but people will justify what they believe no matter what so whatevs.

  304. Nate Says:

    Can some1 please stand up.. Its MArtin!

  305. SteveK Says:

    Freeman and Martin like pineapple too.

    Ronde needs to comeback next year, he is flying around out there.

  306. raphael Says:

    5 for 5 3rd down….

  307. Patrick Says:



  308. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Martin needs to stay in the game he has plenty of rest time this being a thursday night game

  309. rrsrq Says:

    I don’t get all the LGB hate, Doug Martin having a great game, no one can deny, but it is still better to have two backs, this is the same Viking defense that Blount ran on last year. he is capable, but i am the first to say go with the hot back, a few weeks ago, didn’t Blount score a similar touchdown in short yardage

  310. DallasBuc Says:

    Orlando- absolutely not after this performance. However, there is a role for Blount on this team. I think a big one

  311. Rican Says:

    Finish strong!!!!

  312. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    We are humbling the “mighty Vikings”, in their house. Tampa is going to be an awesome team someday soon. One more great draft, and some tweaks, and we will be there. Remember, we still have some injuries to key people!

  313. Rican Says:

    It’s about this season not what he has done in the past. He’s had one good series this season otherwise he’s a one yard dud everytime it seems. I’m all for giving Doug some rest but unless Blount improves give someone else the carries.

  314. Bobby Says:

    Bowers looking strong!

  315. Stanglassman Says:

    Now you put blount in and tell him to run hard or else.

  316. rrsrq Says:

    at least we don’t have the drama of a Roscoe Parrish punt return…
    i know this is from earlier in the game, if Butch Davis is not a coach, then how does he have a headphones on, mmmm

  317. DallasBuc Says:

    If a 2-4 team can make a statement then the bucs just did…offense and defense. We played a very physical game and nearly hung quite a few more points on this team. I like this coach and this team.

  318. GenocideD Says:

    The BENND around!!

  319. rrsrq Says:

    Harrison Smith is a baller

  320. SensibleBuc Says:

    When the Benn’d around gets yardage you know you’ve had a great night!

  321. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Benned around goes for 8 yards biggest gain ever by that play. Everything is going the bucs way. That one was for Joe

  322. Patrick Says:

    AWESOME reverse by Blount!

  323. Rican Says:

    Haha way to something big boi

  324. Rican Says:

    To do*

  325. 1976Buc Says:

    Retire the Gut Call please.

  326. Rican Says:

    Nice Try big boi

  327. Rican Says:

    I wish we could have that ap run back, cause we shut him down otherwise.

  328. SensibleBuc Says:

    LOL @ the three man line

  329. Rican Says:

    Finish strong!

  330. Nate Says:

    GO BUCS!

  331. Keys Says:

    Wonder if roscoe is cut for the muff punt.

  332. DallasBuc Says:

    Love the way this team converted first downs when it counted and answered their scores. Except for one big AP run, our D was outstanding!!

  333. rrsrq Says:

    Leonard Johnson having a decent game

  334. rrsrq Says:

    on Q

  335. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    good call

  336. SensibleBuc Says:


  337. Nate Says:


  338. SensibleBuc Says:


  339. rrsrq Says:

    On Q with the int

  340. Rican Says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised. He hasn’t looked too great or reassuring.
    Please let Bennett be ok.

  341. CaliBucFan Says:

    Nice way to end the game.

  342. DallasBuc Says:

    Can Leonard Johnson mean that we never have to see or hear about Myron “the horrendous” Lewis again? Please say so. Oh please

  343. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Great Game finally I can read some positive articles. Notice Freeman takes two steps back on the kneel down. Great Game GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  344. raphael Says:

    Great game ! #BUCS!!

  345. Bobby Says:

    First complete game we’ve played. Very good on both sides of theball.

  346. GenocideD Says:

    Myron who?

  347. 911bucs Says:

    Great game Bucs! MVP The Dougie!!!!

  348. J 2.0 Says:

    LETS GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!

  349. Keys Says:

    Myron Lewis needs to be cut, and activate Anthony Gaitor back!

  350. OrlandoBucsFan Says:

    Ok so I Love Doug Martin even more after his post game interview he is a great player and respectful.

  351. 941BucGator Says:

    Dallas: I guess we misunderstood each other I am no hater and a new poster. I love my Bucs and this team!

  352. Buccsfan76 Says:

    For you pseudo Bucs fans that insist on bashing Freeman, go love on the Saint’s! As I pointed out on a previous post. Freeman second and third seasons were better than ELITE Brees’s in TDs, INTs, yards, and passer rating. Brees was almost two years older at these points in his career.You will say, “but Doug Martin…” I will say LaDanian Tomlinson! Guess what haters, Free is on pace to have a better fourth season as well. The kid is growing!

  353. blackmagic00 Says:


  354. rrsrq Says:

    Defense gave up a few big plays but the O did their job…what I like was:
    1 int
    2 forced fumbles
    3 sacks
    a few more TFL

  355. snook Says:

    Why is Deion being a dick on NFLN about the Bucs? Did he lose money tonight?

  356. DallasBuc Says:

    941- I didn’t call you a hater. You called us haters and I called you an f’n Doucheria for using that cowherd “hater” language. Quit trying to be the biggest fan in the house. Watch the game and try to enjoy yourself. Go Bucs!!

  357. DallasBuc Says:

    Snook- great catch!! I saw that he was in the toilet over the Bucs win but you called it. He is a terrible analyst. Can’t argue prime time, I guess
