Bucs At Dixie Chicks, Open Thread

December 30th, 2012

It is the last game of the season. There will be no playoff games, no January games. The Bucs took care of that by tanking the past month.

But there are questions that the Bucs need to have answered today, if not Bucs fans.

* How many interceptions will Josh Freeman throw today?

* How many yards will the pass defense give up?

* Will the Bucs own the disgusting title of the worst pass defense in the 93-year history of the NFL? They only need to cough up 252 yards for such a distinguished title.

* How many sacks will Michael Bennett get? For every sack he racks up, for every tackle he makes, the cash register at One Buc Palace rings.

* What will Ronde Barber do? If this is Barber’s last game, Joe would love to see him get a pick-six.

OK Bucs fans, have fun and behave.

    Eric Wright is officially done as a Buc

  2. blackmagic00 Says:

    Hope so.

  3. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Gosh Freeman unofficially done as a Buc

  4. Ian's Gay Lisp & Ron's Drinking Problem Says:

    FALCONS wearing Red Jerseys…I’m afraid Joshy will accidentally throw to the wrong team (is he color blind like Vinny Testaverde??????)

  5. Ian's Gay Lisp & Ron's Drinking Problem Says:

    JOSH is in a cold sweat right now. Im worried. NEVER seen him sweat like that before a game

  6. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    I don’t think he’s color blind but the word is that he’s pee shy

  7. BucNeckid Says:

    My guess on
    Over Under on Josh Interceptions 2.5
    Pass Defense Over Under is 325 yards
    both i say will be “over”
    Bennett will get 2 sacks and leave to be a Giant next year (Osi will be gone)
    Barber will get a Pick Six – in the pro Bowl but not today

  8. BucNeckid Says:

    will ATL play the second team for most of today???

  9. bucobruce Says:

    Tampaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

    Come on guys lets show some love for our Bucs .

  10. BucNeckid Says:

    David goes down

  11. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Falcons coming out passing

  12. BucNeckid Says:

    Barrett Ruud …err… Mason Foster Sighting

  13. SirustheVirus Says:

    Mason hitting Matty Ice!!

  14. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Mystery time out after injury time out

    Schiano realizes Luke McCown is not the QB, he panics

  15. BucNeckid Says:

    way to go Biggers

  16. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    McCoy just got shoved completely out of that play. lol

  17. BucNeckid Says:

    Lucky Break
    that it was not Pass Interference

  18. BucNeckid Says:

    biggers lucked out that he ran into him

  19. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Freemans turn. Let’s see what Josh shows up.

  20. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Who’s the starting QB? Jekyll or Hyde?

  21. lurker Says:

    i can’t wait for you to leave miquel the little clown. go hate on chip the dip kelley’s nfl team. hopefully your little clown car will be full of other clowns from this site!

  22. BucNeckid Says:

    What a Novel Idea.
    Roll out Josh
    Two plays in a row

  23. PRBucFan Says:

    Either way defense got the stop

  24. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Looks like Jekyll

  25. mark2001 Says:

    ATL wants to win the game and will play to do so…HOWEVER…they will try to rest injured guys and won’t risk the playoff run to win this game.

  26. PRBucFan Says:

    Jekyll will show and kill our draft hahaha

  27. BucNeckid Says:

    If Doug Martin gets over 150 yards from scrimmage today
    Bucs win

  28. 911bucs Says:

    That a boy dougie!

  29. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Duggernaut is a beast!

  30. PRBucFan Says:

    Their gonna take him out lol

  31. Gt40bear Says:

    Nice start so far.

  32. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Lurker, cyber bullying is not an admirable trait

  33. raphael Says:

    miquel…..you look like my rear end ..

  34. Piratic Says:

    #22 knocks Robinson all the way to the locker room!!

  35. BucNeckid Says:

    Bucs playing playoff spoiler by taking out ATL CB’s for the playoffs?

  36. bucobruce Says:

    Why do some people come on here to just talk smack on the bucs.GO BUCS Lets go Freeman and Martin!

  37. mark2001 Says:

    If you think about it a little, this game really does mean more to ATL….I mean, would you want to go into the playoffs with a loss against the Bucs. I think that would be psychologically damaging to a team that still doesn’t really know how good it is. Yes they will have a week off, but after that will likely play Seattle or SF, and will need all the momentum it can get.

  38. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol Bubye CB’s 2nd stringers will start coming in now

  39. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    #22 missed that block


  40. lurker Says:

    wow, not even a chip on abraham. so who still thinks the o-line isn’t a cause for collapse?

  41. raphael Says:

    @ bucobruce …cause they are punk kids

  42. PRBucFan Says:

    All day Hyde, all day… aren’t u 6’6???
    Atleast you lead us to some points for once.

  43. Ian's Gay Lisp & Ron's Drinking Problem Says:

    Freeman throwing side arm. Which makes him like a 5’10 QB

  44. SilenceTheCritics Says:


    Yes O-line whiffed on that block no doubt. However, Free was looking at him the whole time. One step to the side would of gave him enough room to get the pass off. Free has no pocket awareness.

  45. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Hey, Russell Wilson is a 5’10” QB

  46. lurker Says:


    some people have so much hate in their heart that they can’t stand others enjoying themselves. they are little men.

    right miguel payasito?

  47. lurker Says:


    perhaps he was too focused on the receiver and didn’t see him? lol

  48. Smitty Says:

    Josh looked MISERABLE in that sideline shot. Not encouraging.

  49. lurker Says:

    this secondary is a sieve.

  50. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Levonte is gettin better and better. Can’t wait to see what this D can do with some corners and a better scheme.

  51. lurker Says:

    intentional grounding

  52. SilenceTheCritics Says:


    Terrible excuse. It’s his job to be able to see the pocket and move accordingly.

  53. BucNeckid Says:

    bad call

  54. lurker Says:

    want a higher draft pick, but a win would be something. give the falcons a home loss for the start of the playoffs.

  55. PRBucFan Says:

    Nice stop D

  56. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Let’s see what the next drive brings us. C’mon Free give us a good drive!

  57. lurker Says:

    that isn’t an excuse. there is no excuse. he tried to make a play with a great d-lineman in his face coming untouched. you think freeman is the cause for this collapse, that is incorrect. there are many reasons the bucs are sucking the last games.

  58. BucNeckid Says:

    Effort on the return at least

  59. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Wow I think Parrish is seeing starts right now.

  60. raphael Says:

    really excited about this Buc team looking forward….

  61. BucNeckid Says:

    Short throw by freeman
    But VJAX should have caught it

  62. raphael Says:

    VJ should of caught that…

  63. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Hyde is back. Wide open receiver and Gosh throws a jump ball

  64. lurker Says:

    many facets of this team needs to improve, including freeman. he should have a rookie behind him next year.

  65. PRBucFan Says:

    I said yesterday that if Jekyll showed up today there’s no doubt in my mind we would win this game, against their starters yes…
    I just really think we need the draft pick.

  66. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Nice pass Free.

  67. BucNeckid Says:

    Bucs can Win this

  68. raphael Says:

    FREEMAN !!

  69. lurker Says:

    this site won’t improve until miguel payasito leaves!

  70. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Gosh threw his 1st pick, Falcon gorrers it

  71. PRBucFan Says:

    Well of course it’s easy to say VJax should of caught that but he actually made a play on a jump ball and prevented the interception. Even though, it did hit his hands.

  72. raphael Says:

    lol “even though it did hit his hand ” ……..fricken moron

  73. PRBucFan Says:

    Honest question,
    Do those last few short passes look lobbed/ coming out weird?

  74. raphael Says:

    @lurker…thats what the retarded troll wants is attention…..

  75. SacBucs Says:

    Luke sky Stocker

  76. PRBucFan Says:

    As in just cause it hit his hands doesn’t mean it was a good pass ass clown. He made a play preventing the interception on yet another jump ball. Tell me when is your boi gonna hit v jax in stride for once?

  77. Ian's Gay Lisp & Ron's Drinking Problem Says:

    Lavonte David & Dougie are my favorite players

  78. BucNeckid Says:

    2013 Survey
    L.Johnson – Yea or Nay as Bucs Nickel back in 2013

  79. SirustheVirus Says:

    good stop D!!

  80. raphael Says:

    Defense is playing better …

  81. PRBucFan Says:

    Again the D gives the ball back.
    Points maybe?

  82. lurker Says:

    leonard johnson on the team, but bot starting. hopefully we will greatly improve the cb’s for next year.

  83. PRBucFan Says:

    With a year under his belt and lots if potential I think that’s a major possibility.

  84. SirustheVirus Says:

    Check out of those plays Freeman!!

  85. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Stocker pulling a Blount.

  86. raphael Says:


  87. SirustheVirus Says:


  88. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Gosh throws off his back foot and a wide open Stocker has to wait for it

  89. PRBucFan Says:

    Who said white bois can’t jump?!?!

  90. BucNeckid Says:

    Shiano’s will will be done

  91. raphael Says:

    thought some of you said Free could not make the short throws …lol

  92. PRBucFan Says:

    We need to start giving Dougie some stretches and tosses.

  93. SirustheVirus Says:

    TouchDown!!! Mike Williams!!

  94. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Great Play Free! Even I got to admit that was nice.

  95. lurker Says:

    what now miguel?

  96. lurker Says:

    miguel, just shut your damn piehole!

  97. Architek Says:

    Sullivan is calling a great game

  98. raphael Says:


  99. Gt40bear Says:


  100. lurker Says:

    is the playcalling better now. gee, being unpredictable makes a difference?

  101. BucNeckid Says:

    Just one more reason why VJax was so valuable a free agent signing
    As an apparet mentor for M.Will
    he has been like signing two players

  102. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Jekyll delivers a strike, amazing!

  103. mark2001 Says:

    Joy…Joy…just when we needed it. Superbowl bound, baby

  104. bucobruce Says:

    Where are all yall haters no! GO BUCS,

  105. Gus Says:

    Most passing touchdowns ever by a tampa bay buccaneer. Congrats Free!

  106. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    That had nothing to do with the play calling. Free just made a nice play which is rare.

  107. Architek Says:

    Raphael why don’t you relax and enjoy the last week before a long offseason? One game will not convince people of Josh or Gosh. Just chill and enjoy the game.

  108. SacBucs Says:

    U late bloomers Like I said with time Freeway is rollin…
    Luke sky Stocker.. U know it alls!

  109. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Except for that last Saints game, the Bucs have played one good half in about every game this season. Let’s see if they can play this well in the second half. History says they won’t.

  110. lurker Says:

    what do you do that is worthwhile, miguel payasito? show your grandchildren how to hate? niiicccce.

  111. bwallstreet Says:

    hes playing great and you haters are still haters

  112. mark2001 Says:

    Not to take much away from that Gus, but when did we ever have two receivers like Jackson and Williams? What Doug or even Vinnie could have done with these two guys. Maybe the SB team was in the same ballpark.

  113. bwallstreet Says:

    @mark2001 and what would josh and this offense do with one of the greatest defenses of all time…sapp, brooks, barber, rice, lynch and company

  114. bucobruce Says:

    Freeman look great on that spin move and throw ,wow!and to all you haters shuf it!Lets go defence,we are getting great preesure on ryan.

  115. lurker Says:

    i am more surprised when the secondary make a play than when freeman does!

  116. SirustheVirus Says:

    Good Job Black!!

  117. PRBucFan Says:

    Now lets see Jekyll play the entire game
    Followed by Jekyll showing up ALL of 2013
    – for his sake
    – and for our fanbase’s or else we face “the search” again.

    We’ve seen him “show up” many times, that’s not the argument. The problem lies in the consistent disappearing act. So until that doesn’t happen an entire season it doesn’t matter what anyone says. Next year will be it as far as the ultimate measuring stick for Free Free.
    – I bet the defense is happy that they finally were rewarded with points from the O.

  118. bwallstreet Says:

    10-13 121 yards and a touchdown…what do the haters have to say?

  119. mark2001 Says:

    Like I said, who knows what we are really getting on the other side. ATL should be giving it a lot to win this game, particularly when they are trying to overcome an ongoing history as post season chokers. But than that is why folks are talking about SF, Seattle, and GB as contenders and ATL hardly in the conversation.

  120. bwallstreet Says:

    @prbucfan who should change his name to king hater

    name me a qb who doesnt have any bad games?

  121. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    I’m all for Jekyll to increase his trade value. It’s KC’s draft pick that will land us a franchise QB

  122. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    A couple nice plays doesn’t make a guy a good QB. Putting it together on a consistant basis does. You know whole games back to back and not a few plays here and there. Some of you crotch riders are funny.

  123. Gus Says:

    How about we all just enjoy the fact we are winning and playing well.

  124. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    No one EVER said Freeman doesn’t have great games, so I don’t know what the homers are spouting off about. The problem with Freeman is his inconsistency. For every game like this where you love him, he has one or two more game where you hate him. That’s the problem. Potential means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING unless you can do it week in and week out. Period.

  125. Architek Says:

    King David is a monster and very consistent.

  126. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Good play Gaitor.

  127. bwallstreet Says:

    @miguel you have no clue what your talking about you obviously dont know much about any of the college qbs this year….i was at yankee stadium yesterday geno was horrible

  128. SilenceTheCritics Says:


  129. BucNeckid Says:

    Just asking
    Who is the Franchise QB to take with KC’s high draft pick?

  130. lurker Says:

    wow, that was something.

  131. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Lol I dont think I’ve ever seen a player pushed all the way back into the ball on a punt before.

  132. BucNeckid Says:

    Benn’d Around 2.0
    Still Sux!!!

  133. SirustheVirus Says:

    Why did I just see that play Benn Underwood it’s all the same take it out get rid of it

  134. Architek Says:

    That’s my point Silence, consistency is the key. For now I’m relishing the last game.

  135. mark2001 Says:

    bwall…I think this offense, with a healthy line, could be as good as that Offense was. That offense was more consistent and mature, so it is hard to compare.

    But this defense isn’t even a shadow of that D. Does that give our current O more or less time with the ball and more plays or not? After all, the current D has given up so many more big plays, I’m not sure. Our O might have actually had more plays and possessions this year.

  136. PRBucFan Says:

    Truth hurts


    -Nice job Watson
    -Nice job D

  137. SacBucs Says:

    Dee Dub

  138. BucNeckid Says:

    Not a Hater
    Josh is playing better today
    Not Great, Better
    No INT’s is the BIG Difference
    Now let’s add D.Martin to the mix

  139. lurker Says:

    “grandpa miguel, can i hate people for no reaason too?”

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  140. 911bucs Says:


    um he still sucks . throws from his back foot. and throws like a girl. basics learned in the T.B.Y.F.L days

  141. lurker Says:

    what was with the offensive line then?

  142. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Damn #55 just passed GMC’s season’s total for deflection’s

    In the 1st half

  143. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Didn’t we see that check down last week?

  144. BucNeckid Says:

    No TD
    But Still…

  145. BucNeckid Says:

    Is D.Clark on the Michael Smith list today?
    No Catches or even targets today.

  146. bucobruce Says:

    I cant wait till next year !

  147. Architek Says:

    I just believe the play calling is much better today. It’s helping the QB warm up with simple throws and reads. Baby steps for Freeman. At this point we have to take that.

  148. PRBucFan Says:

    Any chance we draft Milliner with a win today 🙁

  149. lurker Says:

    “grandpa miguel, can i hate people for no reason too?”

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  150. bwallstreet Says:

    how do you measure an offense? by points

    they are 9 points away from being the best offense in franchise history which they will get

    you people are dumb for whining about the best offense the bucs have ever had

  151. lurker Says:

    oops, freeman mis-tackle there.

  152. raphael Says:

    @architek ..you don”t really think I care what people here think , do you ?
    lol @ the haters

  153. PRBucFan Says:

    Hey BallSweat
    Stuck on repeat???

  154. BucNeckid Says:

    2013 Roster Survey
    Daniel Te’o-Nesheim – Buc or No Buc
    I say Buc

  155. raphael Says:

    Congrats to our 24 yr old franchise stud QB and all time leader in TD passes thrown……..

  156. Patrick Says:

    @raphael……..your boy Freeman needs to actually play like this consistently and stop having long stretches of horrible games. He got bad when we needed him most.

  157. PRBucFan Says:

    The offense is finally taking advantage of the defense getting them the ball back for once. Nice job.

  158. SacBucs Says:

    Julio is why we need a thug..You see how he just mug biggers Dam. A charactr guy can defend that!

  159. BucNeckid Says:

    Best Offense in Buc History
    is not a High Level to meet/best

  160. mark2001 Says:

    Lurker…it didn’t have a pro bowl player on it. Oben, Walker, Cristy, etc.. Like I said, this present line when healthy, is much more talented. Of course, having a seasoned Vet can make up for alot of weakness in an O line. If they are good enough like Rodgers, they can make any line look multiple times better than they are.

  161. Architek Says:

    No you don’t and that’s ok with me but my point is we are a typical fan base. Some of us apologists and some realists. Today is the last week before we will be fishing for a long time. Put the differences aside and appreciate the last week.

  162. raphael Says:

    @ Patrick …. he is not my boy, he is OUR qb, and if you knew anything you would no that dumb ass…

  163. BucNeckid Says:

    That is why Gosh earned the Criticism

  164. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    They’re also 100 yards from being the worst pass defense in the NFL’s 93 year history. Cue the whining Amen Chorus.

    Maybe that’s why they have best offense in franchise history

    Uh oh, Jekyll’s back

  165. raphael Says:

    @ Architek…as soon as the defense gets better , this team is for real..

  166. PRBucFan Says:

    I wasn’t aware that there were many prolific passers or offenses in our Bucs history to surpass?

  167. Patrick Says:

    @Raphael…….lol you don’t even respond to the point I was making…….you complain about my word usage.

  168. raphael Says:

    Apparently you can get em in the 2nd rd, or from F/A ….

  169. lurker Says:

    and yet, still another missed chip block, and another defender in untouched.

  170. mark2001 Says:

    BucNeck…does giving up pick 6’s and other turnovers enter into your equation? Most points are great stats. But if you put the D in bad positions twice as much as another offense, it makes a big difference as well.

  171. PRBucFan Says:

    Thank you John Lynch for the true words.

  172. BucNeckid Says:

    Doug Martin
    43 total yards from scrimmage

  173. bwallstreet Says:

    you haters arent spewing the same garbage day after day thread after thread?

  174. SilenceTheCritics Says:


    Exactly. The crotch riders are pulling any excuse that sounds good out of the air to excuse the mediocre QB play we have. Free is playing good right now. Let’s see him continue the 2nd half the same way and hopefully carry it over into next season. Then maybe we could call him a good QB. Not before then.

  175. raphael Says:

    stinger , looks like

  176. SacBucs Says:

    Theres no way a 6ft 6 get tipped.awww no bennett

  177. raphael Says:

    whatever silence retard

  178. Architek Says:

    Josh Freeman is too tall to have so many balls batted down. He needs to choose his throwing lanes better.

    The defense and QB sir. Don’t think I’m letting that slide by. It’s a team remember.

  179. BucNeckid Says:


  180. Patrick Says:

    Can we get rid of our strength and conditioning coach?? Obviously he’s not doing his job since all our f’king players get INJURED all the damn time!

  181. lurker Says:

    “grandpa miguel, can i hate people for no reaason too?”

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  182. bwallstreet Says:

    @mark 12th best(aka least) giveaways in the nfl coming into today

  183. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  184. Architek Says:

    Lol cut them some slack, it’s been a long season…

  185. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Levonte having a monster game!

  186. Architek Says:

    King David with the sack, example of consistency…a steal.

  187. lurker Says:

    wow…why not sidestep ryan? everyone wants freeman to sidestep when a defender comes untouched.

  188. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Looks like the Falcons are tanking on purpose

  189. raphael Says:

    @ Architeck……WORST PASS DEFENSE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL…..why is that so hard for you to understand…..


  190. lurker Says:



  191. raphael Says:


  192. PRBucFan Says:

    @Silence they don’t understand that concept nor can they intelligently speak to it. As seen above. We will accept him once he proves he can do it an entire season. Till than, nothing can be said on his behalf.

  193. lurker Says:

    miguel payasito said:
    “Looks like the Falcons are tanking on purpose”

    there you go, miguel, just spouting out of his piehole. just hatin to hate.

    “grandpa miguel, can i hate people for no reaason too?”

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  194. Patrick Says:

    @HEY RAPHAEL……….too bad Freeman couldn’t play like this when we needed him most! You know……..the last 5 weeks when we still had a shot at the playoffs?

  195. raphael Says:

    @prbuc we don’t care what you douche’s accept….

  196. SilenceTheCritics Says:


    Careful. It’s dangerous to toy with Crotch riders while there loving on there man.

  197. PRBucFan Says:

    I wasn’t aware that there were many prolific passers or offenses in our Bucs history to surpass?

  198. raphael Says:

    @ patrick see response to the other douche above ^^^

  199. Gus Says:

    @miguel, said no coach ever. If they were tanking they would have pulled the starters.

  200. raphael Says:

    @prbuc…so we shouldn’t like the prolific passer we have ? really ?

  201. PRBucFan Says:

    Or rather the Bucs FO and Bucs Nation.
    Your part of Free’s Jock Nation. You don’t count.

  202. raphael Says:

    lmao @ your silliness …

  203. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    LMAO @ Freeman being a “Profilic Passer”

    More like Prolific Inaccurate Passer

  204. raphael Says:

    you must be 14 yrs old and your hater cronies are as well…..lol

  205. raphael Says:

    be a fan, and root for your team

  209. Patrick Says:

    8 INTERCEPTIONS IN THE LAST 2 GAMES and getting OUTPLAYED by NICK FOLES……yes Nick Foles!! New Orleans got 3 of scores thanks to Josh Freeman, not because of our defense. Oh…..and the St. Louis game our defense actually played well, just so you know. But because of Freeman’s 4 interceptions we lost.

    Do you remember the Dallas game? By far our best defensive performance of the year, we killed Romo all day. But the fact Freeman only had 37 yards going into the 4th quarter is the reason we couldn’t do anything all day.

    In the Atlanta and Philadelphia games, if Freeman hadn’t shown up for just 1 quarter of play, we could’ve easily won.

    We could’ve won several more games if Freeman hadn’t stunk it up on the field so many times.

    54% Completion percentage. See I can throw stats out there to. Thats why I go by what I see on the field instead of on paper.

  220. raphael Says:

    bad pass free

  221. PRBucFan Says:

    You don’t accept mediocre because you’ve never had better.
    Again unintelligible

    Because the kid can play much much better you judge him based off what he’s shown he can do. Fact is he would have had a “prolific” type season if he wouldn’t have fallen apart 5 weeks ago when it mattered. He broke an impressive record. Whooptiedoo. How bout you get a winning record?

  222. BucNeckid Says:

    That throw is an example of the criticism of Josh
    Easy throw to make and he does not make it.
    Kills the chance of making the first down

  223. raphael Says:

    @ silence congrats to Josh on 4000 yrds passing in a season …

  224. raphael Says:

    @bucneckid…ALL qb’s miss easy throws sometimes

    Gosh sets all kinds of records this year, who is the team MVP?

    Gosh doesn’t make the top 5

  231. BucNeckid Says:

    M.Williams needs 4 yards to 1,000 for the year combining with VJax to be the
    First Buc WR Combo to do so in Buc History

  236. MadMax Says:

    Gosh freeman gosh freeman gosh freeman…..get over it!

  237. MadMax Says:

    @Miguel, I think David should get it.

    @miguel go look at profootballrefernce.com and their av…he will def be in the top 5

    Most teams would love to have Freeman, while he has growing to do, he is only 24 and setting team records. Be a fan and believe and support

  240. BucNeckid Says:

    Defense has held ATL to only 162 passing yards so far.
    However, ATL needs less than 100 yards to make the Bucs the worse pass defense ever

  241. PRBucFan Says:

    BallSweat can’t take his own medicine??? Bahahaha
    Smells to me like maybe it’s Ralphies third username? Lol wouldn’t surprise me. But I’m don wasting time with you. None of us can intelligently get anywhere with either of you.

    -Free Free has a 2013 consistent than the FO will go from there. Till than don’t expect him to be our starter for long.

    -looks like we won’t draft Dee Milliner afterall.

  243. Stanglassman Says:

    Just checking our draft status, after head to head what is it points for – points against that determines the draft order? I want to win this game but not raise too high in the draft.

  244. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    It’s obvious the Falcons are tanking this one. They’re just going through the motions.

    They must be afraid that the Little General would get fired for losing the last six like Gruden did.

    What a WORTHLESS defense!

  259. Stanglassman Says:

    Is Milliner that much better than X. Rhodes? I figure we will double up on CB the way we have at other positions, Mark D. MO.

  268. raphael Says:

    it happens good play by samuel….he did a barber than and had a nice break

  269. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    The Falcons have a chance to win this game and instead of passing for a TD, against the worst pass defense in the league, they run. They still score.

    Seems like the Bucs are re-thinking their draft strategy.

  270. Rob Says:

    Freeman playing well today. Horrible drop by Underwood. Please keep it up Freeman. Go Bucs! Uh oh, Gosh with an int!

  271. BucNeckid Says:

    CB first AND second round plus one in Free agency

  272. JJ1977 Says:

    Only three more INT’s and you will have four again Freeman.

  273. raphael Says:

    It is very difficult to catch a Josh Freeman pass.

  307. mark2001 Says:

    I’ve been less critical than about 95% of Bucs fans. Never talked about getting rid of him. Worst thing I said is bring in some reasonable competition rather than a multi-team retread.

    If you have been around enough, you know Warren said, give me 14 points and don’t give up touchdowns on Offense. And as some have said, consistency is the key. To get to the playoffs and win in the playoffs, you can’t have multiple turnover games, whether you are Josh Freeman or Matty Ice. And until Matt Ryan, Cutler, Stafford, etc.. proves they can string more than two games together in crunch time, they have proven nothing. That is what Rah meant in saying that stats are for losers.

  308. Stanglassman Says:

    We needs the Jets and Panthers to win for sure.

  309. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    “It is very difficult to catch a Josh Freeman pass.”

    Otherwise he would have 3 picks today, 7 last week and 40 for the season

    1st penalty? The refs are tanking this game too??

    Bowers plays like that and we might not miss Bennett too much. Barber comes back is my opinion.

    and here goes the backfield, playing their regular

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  345. PRBucFan Says:

    Michael Bennet???
    He is young and in his prime lol

    Milliner is still hands down considered the best CB in draft.

  346. mark2001 Says:

    True beer….

    The problem is that in two or three years, the rest of this team should be ready for a real run….assuming Josh is what we think he can be.

    If not, you are basically hoping you can sign a FA vet with some question marks due to injury or whatever, or starting over again at the QB position…hoping a mid first or second rounder can do what some rookies have done this year. But here again, we will see who can play consistently for three or four more games or if one or more of them folds in the playoffs.

  347. BucNeckid Says:

    Bennett = older than Bowers

  348. Stanglassman Says:

    This reminds me of the time we won our last game and didn’t get a choice between Suh and GMC.

    There are a couple out there
    Mathieu(troubled but could be great)

    M.Williams still needs 4 yards to get 1,000

  397. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Barron saved the Bucs asses on that play.

  398. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Has Williams gotten his 4 yards yet?

  399. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    The defense has had a very good game. Hopefully this will carry over into next year. First 2 things on Dom’s to do list should be Sign Bennett before Free Agency starts and Find a new D-Coord.

  400. lurker Says:

    that is a dejected atlanta team!

  401. BucNeckid Says:

    M.Williams STILL needs 4 frickin yards

    Looks like game slowing down for Barron

    Can we please run this clock out on offense

  406. mark2001 Says:

    It is impossible for anyone to make this season a good one for them based upon any play or plays in this game.

  407. lurker Says:


  408. BucNeckid Says:

    Unless there is a penalty
    M.Williams will NOT get 1,000 yards this year

  413. Architek Says:

    Martin is saving this offense butt.

  414. BucNeckid Says:

    Victory formation please

  415. PRBucFan Says:

    Great defensive effort today.

    Looks like out CBs will have to come through FA

    Brent Grimes
    Sean Smith
    DRC Anyone?

    – I thought this victory wouldn’t mean much for our team but I think I’ll take that back as far as our defense is considered. To finish with great performance against their starters and with a defensive stop is a big deal. Also for Dougie to finish strong would be nice.

    What losing streak?
    Game Over
    Better year than expected.
    See you next year

  421. lurker Says:

    bucs win, bucs win, bucs win!

    despite the haters…

    “grandpa miguel, can i hate people for no reaason too?”

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  422. mark2001 Says:

    Well, better than a preseason win, but that is about it.

  423. Stanglassman Says:

    Carolina won, hopefully they draft after the bucs now.

  424. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I like the way our defense finished the season looking like they were “getting it”. That’s a good sign. I can live with a lower draft pick now that these guys have showed some fight.

  425. lurker Says:

    whatever miguel.

    you ruin this site!

    “grandpa miguel, can i hate people for no reaason too?”

    keep teaching your grandkids negativity and how to hate.

  426. Architek Says:

    Gg Bucs. Not really sold on Freeman but the defense showed some promise.

  427. lurker Says:

    we win but pick like 14th, lol

  428. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Good game Bucs. Now at least we dont have to listen to “The Bucs finished the season on a 7 game losing streak”.

  429. lurker Says:

    @ silence

    woulda only been a 6 game losing streak

  430. Patrick Says:

    Don’t let this game fool you; the pass defense is still the worst in history. Time to get rid of our current secondary and address the position in the draft and free agency.

  431. raphael Says:

    Good game bucs ! Shiano has us in the right direction !

  432. lurker Says:

    we are a better team than last year!

  433. Eric Says:

    Well done.

  434. Andrew 1 Says:

    we won the game and wont be know as the worst secondary of all time. pretty good sunday if you ask me.

  435. mark2001 Says:

    I think we might be picking 13th.

  436. PRBucFan Says:

    We’ll probably pick like 11th

  437. raphael Says:

    it was 11th before the game , not sure now..

  438. mark2001 Says:

    Just looked at a Patriot site that said 13th, with Carolina at 14th. San Diego and someone else had the same record, but weaker SOS.

  439. grif4foozball Says:

    Freeman sucks and so do all you girls who think he doesnt!!!!!OUT!!!!

  440. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’ll take the win for sure and they looked better today. Good momentum going into the offseason. Good job Schiano. Nice win, thank you very much.

  441. mark2001 Says:

    11. San Diego Chargers (6-9) .472
    12. Miami Dolphins (7-8) .483
    13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9) .502
    14. Carolina Panthers (7-9) .522
    15. New Orleans Saints (7-9) .526

  442. lurker Says:

    i was close…to late to get milliner i think

  443. lurker Says:


  444. lurker Says:

    grif = idiot

  445. PRBucFan Says:

    We shall see I still think about 11th

  446. mark2001 Says:

    I can’t see Miami’s SOS rising enough to lift us above them, but I’m certainly no expert.

  447. mark2001 Says:

    Of course, Miami could beat the Pats, but the Pats have a lot to play for.
