Bucs At Raiders, Open Thread

November 4th, 2012

Good afternoon. These 4 p.m. games are sweet, are they not?

Let’s see what happens with the Bucs today? Will they survive in the secondary in this post-Aqib Talib era? Can they survive on offense without Carl Nicks?

Can Josh Freeman continue to light up the sky? Can the Bucs defense put Carson Palmer on the ground, and on the ground hard?

These questions will be answered in the next three or so hours. Have it and have fun.

  14. SensibleBuc Says:

    Man this is gonna be an ugly game lol

  15. stimpy Says:

  17. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Wow these refs are sensitive

  18. tha truth is... Says:

    Lorig lookin swift

  19. SensibleBuc Says:

    Lorig has COMPLETELY reinvented himself since last year. His hands are magnificent and hes got some good quicks.

  20. stimpy Says:

    At least Raiders are starting bad too…

  21. SensibleBuc Says:

    Way to go Mike! Way to move the chains! We look like an NFL offense finally

  22. tha truth is... Says:

    1st down to tha real Mike Williams

  23. SensibleBuc Says:

    I swear Doug is open on every play

  24. Have A Nice Day Says:


  25. tha truth is... Says:

    Damn damn damn

  26. stimpy Says:

    Oh crap!!

  27. SensibleBuc Says:

    I’ll take 3. KneeIf we don’t turn the ball over, we’ll win this game…*sigh* nevermind

  28. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  29. SteveK Says:


  30. stimpy Says:

    C’mon GMC..

  31. tha truth is... Says:

    Omg offsides again

  32. stimpy Says:

    They compared GMC to Leroy Selmon…really?

  33. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Barron hits SO HARD!

  34. SteveK Says:

    Looking flat

  35. tha truth is... Says:

    Lmao Barron is Lynch reincarnated

  36. SensibleBuc Says:

    LMAO Barron hit him so hard their helmet stuck together!

  37. SteveK Says:

    Twice now Baron has hit McFadden, and the announcer credited David both times.

    Analysis… Baron brings the wood.

  38. SensibleBuc Says:

    Wow! Keep it up kid!

  39. stimpy Says:

    Good hold…Raiders are bad on the redzone

  40. tha truth is... Says:

    David is missing tackles early

  41. raphael Says:

    hope our OL gets better !

  42. tha truth is... Says:

    Ice Cube is jammin

  43. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Ice Cube is terrible. I had to mute the TV.

  44. stimpy Says:

    Go Baby Go

  45. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    These refs suck

  46. raphael Says:

    WOW … nice throw freeman

  47. SensibleBuc Says:

    YEAH BABY!!!!!!!! WHAT A BOMB!

  48. tha truth is... Says:


  49. stimpy Says:

    C’mon!!! Man!!

  50. SensibleBuc Says:

    Great protection!

  51. Have A Nice Day Says:

    I didn’t realize how fast Martin is. He looked extremely quick on that play too.

  52. tha truth is... Says:

    Teach’em how 2 Dougie

  53. SensibleBuc Says:

    It’s amazing how WRONG I was about Doug’s quickness during draft time. I think he’s only a 4.5 40 guy but he can stop on a dime and gets 0-60 in no time.

  54. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Great catch and throw!

  55. raphael Says:

    V-JAX !

  56. Have A Nice Day Says:

    “What a beautifully thrown ball by Vincent Jackson.”

    Lynch is struggling badly today.

  57. SensibleBuc Says:


  58. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Sensible – Exactly. The guy can change directions and hit full speed in a blink.

  59. tha truth is... Says:

    Thank god 4 V-Jax

  60. SensibleBuc Says:

    You could see Freeman recognize the press on VJax and switch to the bomb over the top. Gotta love the maturity.

  61. SensibleBuc Says:

    Anybody miss the 15+ years of the dink and dunk west coast offenses of Dungy/Gruden/Rah?

    Nope. Me either.

  62. Have A Nice Day Says:


  63. SensibleBuc Says:

    Man he looked off the safety too. All of the hatred – err – critiques Free was receiving earlier in the year are falling by the wayside. Well done #5.

  64. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Oh no! Not Bennett!

  65. tha truth is... Says:

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo not Bennett

  66. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Hopefully he just got the wind knocked out of him.

  67. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Palmer sacked himself.

  68. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Stupid penalty…

  69. SensibleBuc Says:

    Bahahahaha nice

  70. tha truth is... Says:

    Hayward is dumb

  71. SensibleBuc Says:

    Jesus Christ

  72. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Its coming back. Holding on Oakland

  73. SensibleBuc Says:

    Man everybody’s a full play ahead of me lol

  74. tha truth is... Says:

    Thank u football god

  75. Rican Says:

    We need to never try and block another punt or kick again. Ever!

  76. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Wow. I can’t believe we came away from that drive unscathed.

  77. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Oakland is stupider than Hayward

  78. tha truth is... Says:

    Shades of LSU

  79. JSmalls Says:

    I wish we could fast forward to 2014

  80. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Freeman has been practicing his slides

  81. tha truth is... Says:

    Lmao Freeman is slower than last yr even after losing weight

  82. SensibleBuc Says:

    Stocker sighting. Didn’t know he was still on the team πŸ™‚

  83. SensibleBuc Says:

    1st half has flown by wow

  84. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Penn let his guy run right past him

  85. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Benn sighting

  86. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Bennett baby! Thats my man!

  87. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Good job Bennett!

  88. SensibleBuc Says:

    Hey guys Bennett’s back

  89. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Is everyone else noticing how well Biggers is doing in this game? Such a sharp contrast to his play last year.

  90. SensibleBuc Says:

    FINALLY a good return

  91. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Would love to see a nice long drive ending with some points and the half…

  92. SensibleBuc Says:

    @Have A Nice Day

    Definitely. Better in coverage, better tackler, looks more sure of himself

  93. stimpy Says:

    Hey! We Scored!!

    Sorry im late…had some work to do… :0

  94. raphael Says:

    our OL sucks

  95. SensibleBuc Says:

    Damnit. Bad audible Free

  96. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  97. JSmalls Says:

    Stocker gets blown up

  98. stimpy Says:

    My NFL Mobile is crapping out…DAMN

  99. JSmalls Says:

    That wasn’t on zuttah, stocker got buckled to his knees

  100. raphael Says:

    we need some points here ….

  101. Have A Nice Day Says:

    That guy is fast.

  102. raphael Says:

    biggers is getting toasted

  103. SilenceTheCritics Says:


  104. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  105. SensibleBuc Says:


  106. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Just when I call out Biggers for great play he gets burned on two plays and allows a TD. DANG IT!

  107. SensibleBuc Says:

    Forget everything I just said about Biggers

  108. JSmalls Says:

    Single high safety = toast

  109. stimpy Says:

    He stepped out!!

  110. Rican Says:

    Burnt biggers.
    Lol sounds familiar.

  111. Pruritis Ani Says:

    The great EJ Biggers

  112. Gt40bear Says:

    Can we PLEASE get rid of Biggers! Reminds me of Rod ‘Toast’ Jones! OMG!

  113. Pruritis Ani Says:

    They’ll pick on Biggers the rest of the game..

  114. stimpy Says:

    Give Biggers a break

  115. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ Gt40bear

    Alright take it easy. He was having a great game before the last two plays

  116. tha truth is... Says:

    Biggers against tha go route is TOAST!

  117. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Doug Martin doing his best Barry Sanders impersonation i.e. running the wrong way and getting tackled.

  118. raphael Says:

    Biggers sucks !

  119. Gt40bear Says:

    When he plays consistently well enough to deserve a break, he’ll get one. πŸ™‚ I guess someone had to play the part of burnt Talib!

  120. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Uh-Oh clock management genius at work

  121. SacBucs Says:

    Ted larsen pushed in freeman lap

  122. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Miguel No kidding. This team is flat out horrible at clock management.

  123. stimpy Says:

    Lets GO BUCS!!

  124. SensibleBuc Says:

    Hey I want a penalty on that Oakland defender for driving Free into the ground just now

  125. Rican Says:

    We better pick up a CB in FA or th draft if we plan on contending within the next couple yrs.

  126. stimpy Says:


  127. Gt40bear Says:

    How about a CB in FA AND the draft!

  128. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    What’s the record for longest FG?

  129. SensibleBuc Says:

    WTF is up with these penalties man

  130. SensibleBuc Says:

    63 Miguel

  131. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Miguel I think it is 63or 64.

  132. Rican Says:


  133. stimpy Says:

    Yeah..take a shot

  134. SensibleBuc Says:

    Ok we’ve got some Keystone Cops type stuff going on right now

  135. Gt40bear Says:

    I will say Johnson is having a very good game. Come on Bucs!

  136. Rican Says:

    Yea both is a must.

  137. Have A Nice Day Says:

    What is happening to Barth Vader?

  138. raphael Says:

    whats goin on with Barth lately ?

  139. Rican Says:

    Lady Luck isn’t in our favor this game.

  140. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Sloppy sloppy first half. Come on guys get it together and come out strong 2nd half!

  141. stimpy Says:

    Too much off

  142. Rican Says:

    This is his first rough game. Block isn’t his fault though b

  143. SacBucs Says:

    Raiders special teams made the rightside crumble

  144. Rican Says:

    If we continue to play press coverage even with McFadden out we lose this game and Palmer tears us a new one in the second half.

  145. tha truth is... Says:

    Barth is due a bad game at least once per season. I’m not mad at him 1 bit

  146. Big Picture Guy Says:

    Cant put a blocked FG like that one on the kicker. 53 yarder’s ain’t no chip shots either. Barth will pull thru late in the clutch!

  147. bucobruce Says:

    Dont worry guys were about to put a beat down on the raiders I telling you just watch Bucs 28 raiders 13.

  148. bucobruce Says:

    Freeman is about to light it up and Martin will have a huge game by the end of the day ,the defence will get some picks after we take the lead just wait TAMPAAA BAAAAAAAAAY!!

  149. Have A Nice Day Says:

    WTH is up with the penalties?

  150. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Do you think that guy buys his friend season tickets as long as he wears a gorilla suit and a funny hat so that he gets to be on the TV all game?

  151. Rican Says:

    What’s new? Lol

  152. Have A Nice Day Says:

    No one could see the ball in the sun. Hit the CB in the face lol.

  153. Have A Nice Day Says:

    lol Could be, Miguel.

  154. Have A Nice Day Says:

    D-Rex killing it!

  155. bucobruce Says:

    What did I tell you guys woooooooooo!!!!

  156. stimpy Says:


  157. tha truth is... Says:

    Dougie is a animal

  158. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Martin is gonna run his way into the Probowl if he keeps this up.

  159. raphael Says:


  160. Have A Nice Day Says:

    bucobruce – You called it!

  161. stimpy Says:

    Cant wait to get home and watch this game

  162. Rrsrq Says:

    A Roscoe sighting

  163. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Imagine if Jackson used a stiff arm against the Saints on that 95 yarder like the Hamster just did?

  164. PRBucFan Says:

    What a move trading up for Dougie turned out to be!

  165. Rrsrq Says:

    Wish they wouldn’t have given him that T. O.

  166. Big Picture Guy Says:

    Why does Schiano NEVER trust Freeman to snap the ball in time? You can’t just waste timeouts like this in the 2nd half!!

  167. bucobruce Says:


  168. Gt40bear Says:

    Nice Mike!

  169. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Clock management at it’s finest!!

  170. Big Picture Guy Says:

    Agreed Miguel. Schiano needs to be held more accountable for his TO management by the pen and mike club starting this week. It’s becoming a scary trend…

  171. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Two TD’s for #19

  172. raphael Says:

    Freeman is looking sharp today

  173. bucobruce Says:

    At halftime I said Freeman and Martin would heat up and I was right ,then I said when we get the lead it would lead to some raider ints lets see if Im right about that to.

  174. tha truth is... Says:

    1 TD 4 V-Jax, 1 TD 4 Real Mike

  175. SensibleBuc Says:

    Muwhahahahaha! Sully my man I’ll never say another bad word about you again!

  176. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Bucobruce is a freaking psychic, he called the Chief’s score

  177. tha truth is... Says:

    can we stop playin single high safety

  178. SensibleBuc Says:

    Q. Black with a NICE stick!

  179. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    I meant he caught two TD’s on that drive, one called back for penalty

  180. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Johnson with another pick! Outstanding game today!

  181. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Bucobruce called the pick also

  182. stimpy Says:


  183. tha truth is... Says:

    Johnson is better than Biggers

  184. J-VilleBucs84 Says:

    Johnson int woot woot

  185. bucobruce Says:

    See I told you guys again!!!!!!!!!!WOOOOOOOOOO

  186. Have A Nice Day Says:

    bucobruce – What are the powerball numbers.

  187. Gt40bear Says:

    Buc fans meet our new starting corner! Get some LJ!

  188. SensibleBuc Says:

    I’m eating a whole ton of crow today! LJ is making me a believer

  189. bucobruce Says:

    Are you guys reading my posts Im calling everything wooooooooooo!!!!I know my team

  190. SacBucs Says:

    Johnson island

  191. Gt40bear Says:


  192. Rrsrq Says:

    Ernest Byner is one heck of a RB coach, he just produces 1000 yard runners

  193. J-VilleBucs84 Says:

    Martin is sick!!

  194. stimpy Says:

    OH MY FN GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  195. Patrick Says:


    Rookie of the year if he keeps this up!!

  196. Have A Nice Day Says:

    It is hard to comprehend that a Buccaneer offense is gonna score over 0 points 4 games in a row.

    Bucs were the best offense in the league for the month of October. It is a good start for November.

  197. Have A Nice Day Says:

    *over 30 points*

  198. bucobruce Says:

    pick six is coming

  199. SensibleBuc Says:

    I’m stunned right now. Stunned.

  200. tha truth is... Says:

    U go Doug!

  201. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Lavonte David just made his 6,197 tackle of the game.

  202. JSmalls Says:

    I’ve never known offense!

  203. stimpy Says:

    @Have A Nice Day


    This is fun

  204. Drew Says:

    Awesome game!

  205. bucobruce Says:



  206. Drew Says:

    Sullivan is opening it up.

  207. Have A Nice Day Says:

    These penalties are ruining the game. 9 freaking penalties

  208. SensibleBuc Says:


  209. Drew Says:

    Too Easy!

  210. PRBucFan Says:

    Hopefully our defense can stand firm. We must play mistake free football.

  211. Rrsrq Says:

    C’mon Defense, they are almost out of options

  212. bucobruce Says:

    Dont worry guys were going to grind out the clock with our run game and get another pick we will win this game and then win 6 out of the last 8 games to go 10- 6 and get in the playoffs!

  213. Have A Nice Day Says:

    HAHAHAHA!!!! He did the DOUGIE!!!!

  214. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  215. Rrsrq Says:

    Wow, can’t believe this

  216. PRBucFan Says:

    This is unbelieveable.

  217. stimpy Says:


  218. bucobruce Says:

    Woooooooooo trust in me guys I know my team!

  219. Patrick Says:


  220. tha truth is... Says:

    Wow! Tha best rb we ever had….and he’s a rookie

  221. SensibleBuc Says:


    *gasps for breath*


  222. stimpy Says:

    This is just crazy!!!

    Dare we say? We have an offense!

  223. bucobruce Says:


  224. Gt40bear Says:

    Holy crap on a cracker!

  225. stimpy Says:



  226. lurker Says:


  227. Jamaica Buc Says:

    good day to be Bucs fan … πŸ™‚

  228. Steendahl Says:

    Buco: how is it possible to run out the clock with our running game when we score every time ? best problem you can possibly have

  229. Travis Says:

    53 more yards and dougie will break the single game rushing record

  230. Jamaica Buc Says:


  231. lurker Says:

    β€œThis ain’t no garden party, brother, this
    is wrestling, where only the strongest survive.”

    β€œI’m a limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’ son of a gun. WOOOO!!”

  232. PRBucFan Says:

    We need to play defense.

  233. Jordan Says:

    From here on out, Ray Rice gets compared to Doug Martin and not the other way around!!!!!

  234. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Ten penalties.

  235. stimpy Says:

    And were doing it with a depleted OL.

    Way to step up guys…keep it up team

  236. Jamaica Buc Says:

    C’MON BUCS. Palmer is chewing up the secondary ??

  237. 1976Buc Says:

    Forget the single game record. I for one will be pissed if Schiano leaves Martin in and he gets hurt.

  238. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    If LB didn’t lose his touches last game he sure did this game. Keep the bench warm for when Doug comes back from scoring. I think even joe know will give up on the LB touches.

  239. Gt40bear Says:

    Come on guys, playing waaaay too soft. Oh no, a Myron Lewis sighting. Having Corey Ivy flashbacks!

  240. SensibleBuc Says:

    MyLew sighting…get your popcorn ready

  241. PRBucFan Says:

    Hopefully our defense does not ruin a beautiful game. If we could only have an average defense we could contend with anybody with the offense playin like this. However if our defense plays like this. We won’t go far.

  242. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Good time for Blount

  243. Rrsrq Says:

    We need a turnover

  244. Architek Says:

    Secondary look much better with Biggers and Johnson assignment wise. They look like theyre on their details. One hand catches you cant prevent but they have been right with their man all day.

    Johnson looks like a young Ronde.

    Martin is a MONSTER. I told you Blount was done in April. You dont draft someone to sit them on the bench in the first round.

  245. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Too much blittzing

  246. SensibleBuc Says:

    Well done GMC!

  247. PRBucFan Says:

    Architek not the case these last two drives.

  248. Rrsrq Says:

    That’s on the d coordinator

  249. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Biggers strikes again

  250. JSmalls Says:

    Single high in that situation is dumb

  251. Gt40bear Says:

    Waaaay too easy :-/

  252. Have A Nice Day Says:

    We are only up by two scores. They better not bench Martin. Stupid idea.

  253. SensibleBuc Says:

    Yeah we gotta play zone there. Use the small field to your advantage.

  254. PRBucFan Says:

    Too EZ. Question is which defense will step up first? Still plenty of clock.

  255. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    When is this rookie wall coming?

  256. Patrick Says:

    I’m so sick of Biggers!!

  257. PRBucFan Says:

    I would too, we can’t stop a fly right now.

  258. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Oaktown is dumb

  259. JSmalls Says:

    Shiano’s acts like BJ Daniels is taking snaps for the Raiders

  260. Rob Says:

    nice balance

  261. mark2001 Says:

    Even though the D secondary has some real holes, at least it gives Shiano and Butch a very good picture of what we really have. If a couple of these guys are really scrubs that a poor rush defense covered up because teams didn’t pass against us much, it will be exposed as bright as day. If the technique is bad, or the talent is lacking, it will be very clear to these guys and we will work on it in the off season. The first thing to build a champion is to know what you really have and what you don’t have.

  262. PRBucFan Says:

    Please take him out.

  263. SensibleBuc Says:

    Sully = In the zone

  264. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ PRBucFan

    Who? Doug? No dude you keep feeding him.

  265. Pruritis Ani Says:


  266. PRBucFan Says:

    It would be wrong of Schano to take the ball from Doug’s hands right now.

  267. JSmalls Says:

    Shiano’s dumb

  268. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Classic Blount.

  269. Patrick Says:

    WHY IS Blount in the game!?!?????

  270. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    That fumble was on Freeman

  271. Gt40bear Says:

    WTF??? Nice handoff Josh! NOT,

  272. SensibleBuc Says:


  273. PRBucFan Says:

    @Sensible No, LB the RB that just fumbled.

  274. Patrick Says:


  275. JSmalls Says:

    And I like Shiano…. But

  276. Patrick Says:

    Well just watch……..the Raiders are gonna come back.

  277. 1976Buc Says:

    Not Blounts fault. Freemans hand off was up in his chest.

  278. Jamaica Buc Says:

    Let’s go DDD-fence

  279. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    #20 had one eye on the ball and one on the end zone

    Too much blitzing

  280. PRBucFan Says:

    I would be dismayed if we lost this game.

  281. Alex Says:

    And people wanted to draft Trent Richardson…LOLOLOLOL

    We got Barron and Dougie

  282. JSmalls Says:

    Everything has to be perfect for Blount to have success

  283. Patrick Says:

    COME ON!! I WANT TO GET TO 40!!!!

  284. Gt40bear Says:

    DC needs to be FIRED right NOW!

  285. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Patrick – Forget your meds again?

  286. 1976Buc Says:

    As high as that hand off was it would have hit Martin in the face mask.

  287. Rrsrq Says:

    Too many tipped balls we haven’t got to

  288. stimpy Says:

    Another flag! C’Mon

  289. J-VilleBucs84 Says:

    Eric Wright WTF!!

  290. Alex Says:

    Leonard Johnson is so much better than Talib and the other cb’s it’s not even funny

  291. PRBucFan Says:

    Point is that our offense lost momentum with Blount in the game. If that defender would not have jumped offside LB would have had yet another run for loss.

  292. stimpy Says:


  293. Patrick Says:

    OMG I can’t take this CRAP!!!!!!

  294. 911bucs Says:

    Ok, I’m a big Lavonte David fan. He’s impressive. Biggers has to go

  295. tha truth is... Says:

    can we pay Wright 2 leave. Tha Glazers won’t feel it in their pockets

  296. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    That’s it Lewis help him out of bounds

  297. Alex Says:

    EJ Biggers has shown once again that he’s about as useful as an umbrella in the ocean.

  298. Patrick Says:

    Wright and Biggers need to be released now!

  299. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  300. PRBucFan Says:

    Again, dismayed.

  301. Alex Says:

    Ej Biggers and Myron Lewis. A match made in heaven. They can go find new jobs next year

  302. Gt40bear Says:

    Thank you Myron Lewis!

  303. stimpy Says:

    Wow r you kidding me?

  304. Gt40bear Says:

    Beautiful corner play.

  305. SensibleBuc Says:


  306. tha truth is... Says:

    all cb’s are trash except Johnson

  307. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Patrick is losing his mind.

  308. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Biggers didn’t jump for the ball on that conversion

  309. Patrick Says:


  310. PRBucFan Says:

    Even if we win. It already feels like a loss and will feel like one.

  311. stimpy Says:

  313. ShelbyBucsGurl Says:

    Season killing collapse….

  314. stimpy Says:

    c’mon FREE

  315. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Threw it too soon

  316. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    The crowd looks like deranged Munchkins

  317. PRBucFan Says:

    I would seriously be at unable to watch my team if they did this to me again.

  318. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Clock management…..

  319. Alex Says:

    …the hell is going on?

  320. Patrick Says:


  321. mark2001 Says:

    Guys…this isn’t a collapse. It is a poor defensive performance, and you know we have seen many of these this year. Let’s face it….any team with a good passing game will eat this D up. And you don’t think the coaches knew it? They were likely jumping for joy to get rid of gangster and to get another draft pick. We desperately need it.

  322. tha truth is... Says:

    this is pure bs. Gotta rely on our magnificent defense

  323. Patrick Says:

    This team just can’t finish games.

  324. stimpy Says:

    D needs to hold

  325. Have A Nice Day Says:

    It certainly is a poor defensive performance.

  326. 1976Buc Says:

    More poor clock management.

  327. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    We’re going to regret wasting those two time outs

  328. Patrick Says:

    And we have no timeouts either!!!!!

  329. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Single high again.

  330. stimpy Says:

    3 & out

  331. Patrick Says:

    Typical Tampa Bay

    can’t stop a fly…

    but good thing palmer is a fly

  338. stimpy Says:



  339. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Great game, guys! Had me at the edge of my seat for a minute there.

    Give it to dougie!

  341. SensibleBuc Says:


  342. Patrick Says:

    INT!!! There is a God!!!!!

  343. tha truth is... Says:

    Thank u Ahmad Black

  344. Jamaica Buc Says:

    game not over yet guys.
    we haven’t been able to BUY a first down recently

  345. Patrick Says:

    Get to 40!!!!! We haven’t scored 40 since the Super Bowl in 2003!!

  346. Bobby Says:

    I hate games like this. They’re bad for my blood pressure…

  347. PRBucFan Says:

    Nothing to be proud of right now for our team with how we finished this game. Terrible coaching decisions and possibly the worst defensive CB group in the NFL. Congratulations Martin you should have had a shot at the record. You were robbed.

  348. Have A Nice Day Says:

    BTW Bucs have 14 penalties for 116 yards today. We are lucky to win with so many penalties.

  349. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Will the Raiders lay down?

  350. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Martin is gonna have 4 TDs!!!!!

  351. stimpy Says:


  352. Patrick Says:


  353. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Held the Raiders to 22 yards rushing.

  354. raphael Says:

    bullspit prbuc fan…I am proud of the team today…record setting day….moron

  355. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    The offense will have a great flight back home, the defense not so much

  356. PRBucFan Says:

    Will our defense lay down yet again?

  357. Patrick Says:

    Highest scoring day since the day we won the Super Bowl!!!!!!

  358. 1976Buc Says:

    How can you not be proud of our Bucs today?

  359. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Martin just locked up the Probowl with this game.

  360. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Bring in Martin!!!!

  361. Pruritis Ani Says:

    LOL.. Biggers. Finally showed up.

  362. lurker Says:


  363. lurker Says:

    give the ball to doug, let him get 300

  364. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ PRBucFan

    You couldn’t be more wrong. There’s nothing to hang our head in shame about. WE WON THE GAME! Have you seen our record when we play west coast teams? This was a huge galvanizing win!

  365. SensibleBuc Says:

    Ok didn’t like that play at all.

  366. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Why screw up Martin’s stats??

  367. SensibleBuc Says:

    Or that one. Just kneel on it.

  368. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Didn’t like the last 3 plays… No sense in risking an injury and decreasing his total yardage.

  369. raphael Says:

    wonder if we will see blount run the ball again ?

  370. Rrsrq Says:


  371. SensibleBuc Says:


  372. 1976Buc Says:

    Why would you call timeout? I just don’t understand.

  373. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Strange clock management

  374. Patrick Says:

    STOP taking yardage away from Martin!!!!!!

  375. PRBucFan Says:

    @Raphael Try and be a little more literate and less it a homer? I’m speaking on the way we finished that game. It’s nothing to be proud of. I am proud of the way Dougie performed. But no fan here with eyes can honestly say they were proud of what was almost another major collapse. Carson Palmer gifted us with that pick. We were lucky. End of story. 14 penalties 116 yards? C’mon now. Congrats Dougie. Raphael do me a favor a shut the heck up. Your the least credible on this site.

  376. mark2001 Says:

    Raphael….do you mean as a Buc or just this game?

  377. Orlando bucs fan Says:

    Doug has had an amazing game and amazing is an understatement but freeman also has 250 yards and two touchdowns are offense is clicking. The bucs defense needs to play all four quarters and the pass defense needs to improve vastly, I believe the pass defense is the one thing that is missing because the run defense has been very good.
    Just be satisfied for now with the win!!!
    Go Bucs!!!!!

  378. SensibleBuc Says:

    Oh god. I swear Coach is trying to piss people off

  379. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Next week #21 takes his suspension and the defensive backfield gets a lot worse

  380. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh so because of a past record and a W we over look what was almost a historic collapse? Again? BS haha. Again don’t take what I said out of context, I was speaking specifically to end of the game. And the word shame never came out of my mouth. I am very pleased with Dougie and some aspects of the game. I am happy with the W, but that defensive performance towards the end there and the coaching choices was just laughable. That’s all I’m gonna say.

  381. ClayBURN94 Says:

    Stfu miguel you douchebag. Nobody likes you, whats the point of commenting if you’re going to be a negative little prick.

  382. Pruritis Ani Says:

    We need some serious serious help in the secondary… Oakland had NO running game and we still couldn’t stop the pass. Glad we got the picks… Typical Carson Palmer in the clutch but it didn’t need to be that close. I’m just happy we got the victory.

  383. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @PRBucFan I didn’t say anything to you. What are you talking about? I think you’ve mistaken me for someone else.

  384. Jamaica Buc Says:

    i think i understand @PRbucs attitude… he’s happy with the W, but …

    he’s very concerned that the secondary is going to get lit up by other teams. It really is a ‘glaring’ weakness of our defence.

    I believe that we might have done a good job with our LB’s, but we’ll need a few more drafts to get to a very good defence

  385. PRBucFan Says:

    Sorry that was meant for @Sensible

  386. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol yea I just caught that

  387. PRBucFan Says:

    Exactly Jamaica πŸ™‚

  388. Have A Nice Day Says:

    We are playing tons of single high safety bump man coverage with our linebackers very close to the line. That is great for the run, but the CBs aren’t bred for man-2-man. Schiano simply doesn’t care so much for playing the pass. He plays for turnovers and to stop the run.

  389. raphael Says:

    @mark as a buc

    @ prbuc stfu you moron…”@Raphael Try and be a little more literate and less it a homer?” lmao @ less it a homer….classic you buffoon !

  390. Russ Says:

    First win in Oakland- EVER. Wow, what a game. I can’t remember a time when a Buccaneers offense had dynamic playmakers at QB, RB, WR (x2). The OL played their hearts out and Lorig was able to get to Oakland’s second-level consistently. Doug Martin, wow, not since Dunn’s rookie year have we seen speed, vision and shiftiness at the RB…but you’ve also added POWER.

    Now, Defense, you continue to knock people out and play the run-fits better than anyone else in the league right now, but the pass-rush is atrocious and it’s exposing our mediocre DBs. That being said, Johnson and Biggers played better than expected…I think it’s the telegraphed, never get to the QB, heavy blitzing that’s hurting. McCoy needs to be able to split a double team once in a while…though it was his inside pressure on Palmer that forced the pick. Sheridan needs some help devising the pass-d.

    Oh, Ahmad Black…you’re turning into a pretty crafty NFL player…and you saved our @ss today.

  391. PRBucFan Says:

    Again @Raphael your not even worth addressing. So consider this my last time ever wasting my time on you. Or recognizing you even exist on a poster on this board.

    @Russ well said. Although IMO Biggers was painful to watch. But you put it well. They are getting exposed. Ahmad to CB maybe? Would be interesting.

  392. raphael Says:

    @ Russ AGREED …although on Blacks int..GMC hit Palmer so he should get some credit..

  393. SensibleBuc Says:


    “Nothing to be proud of right now for our team with how we finished this game.”

    That’s a pretty cut & dry statement. Nothing = the nonexistence of something. The defense stopped Palmer when they had to. We’re the 31st ranked defense in the League for a reason, we’re not very good. They were gassed from the end of the 3rd quarter on but they bowed up and stopped the Raiders when they needed to. There were little to no missed tackles, they shut down the run, and switched up the playcalling on the final drive. What more do you want?

  394. raphael Says:

    @PRbuc …blah,blah,blah

  395. PRBucFan Says:

    Toward to the end of the game is key in that statement @sensible you can look at this however you want buddy. You can recognize the pretty while also recognizing the obvious ugly or you can ignore it. That’s on you man. But it’s pointless beating a dead horse.

  396. PRBucFan Says:

    Sorry, “with how we finished”

  397. BucFan20 Says:

    Get no pressure on the qb most of the game and the best secondary can be made to look bad. For those crying about the fumble you must be blind. That was on Freeman. The handoff is not to the left shoulder pad. Never has been that I know of.

  398. Bobby Says:

    PRBucfan……you are an idiot. A win is a win simpleton. I don’t care if it was stylish or not and only a pinhead would. The D stepped up when it needed to and got the picks. The offense played lights out. Proud? You bet I am. This team played football today and beat the Raiders for the first time in their house. Well done.

    Am I concerned about the secondary?? Of course. I have been since the Giants game but as long as we continue to win I’m not going to sulk about it. We’ll get better. Leonard Johnson is going to be a good one and as long as E.J. doesn’t get fried multiple times a game we should get by. I can’t believe you don’t think Bucs fans should be proud of this win. What a total bonehead.
