Eagles At Bucs, Open Thread

December 9th, 2012

Happy football day boys and girls and welcome to Bucs Super Bowl Reunion Day. Joe already saw Warren Sapp on the sidelines wearing his No. 99 jersey doing a spot for the NFL Network.

Fans here at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway are geeked for this game. The Beagles stink and the greatest Bucs team to ever take a field is back, along with Chucky.

So this will be fun. Bucs need a win or Joe will start worrying about the draft. Feel free to share your thoughts on the game.

    Loving the Superbowl Memories this week
    Great job

  2. raphael Says:

    DEFENSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. SilenceTheCritics Says:


  4. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    What’s the prediction, BucoBruce?

  5. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Nice opening defensive stop.

  6. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    McCoy’s been hanging around with Sapp I see

  7. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    a 66 yard punt? Wow lol

  8. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Bad timing = fumble

  9. canadianbuc Says:

    CMON!!! This can’t be another one side of the ball plays well and the other bad cmon!!!

  10. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Uh-oh! Freeman looks like he was out partying all night with the 2002 Bucs

  11. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    We should be use to that by now Canadien. How often do both sides of the ball play well? lol… this isnt going to be a blow out like some people suggest.

  12. canadianbuc Says:

    @Silencethecritics if we can’t then there’s no way were running the table

  13. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Gah we just got Gaitor back!

  14. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Put Gaitor on IR

  15. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I dont expect us to run the table. I dont expect us to make the playoffs this year and never really thought we would. But they have played much much better than I did expect which is awesome. Hopefully next year we will have a much better pass defense and will make a deep playoff push.

  16. BucNeckid Says:

    One sided Team reminds me of the Pre Superbowl Bucs teams

  17. raphael Says:

    relax everybody…it just nerves playing in front of alumni

  18. PRBucFan49 Says:

    Really Gaitor??? Already?

  19. BucNeckid Says:

    Nice to see a Full Stadium

  20. BucNeckid Says:

    So far Freeman is showing way to much “nerves”

  21. BucNeckid Says:


  22. BucNeckid Says:

    Not even Close on the bomb

  23. BucNeckid Says:

    Just Warming up I hope

  24. BucNeckid Says:

    Fake Punt time

  25. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Freeman looks erratic

  26. BucNeckid Says:

    Offense is playing tlike they aour honoring Tony Dungy

  27. raphael Says:

    looks overly intense to me….

  28. canadianbuc Says:

    Where are those explosive runs from Martin??

  29. BucNeckid Says:

    That is normal

  30. PRBucFan Says:

    Sorry joe forgot username on accident. Disregard the added 49 on my last l comment. On topic, why is it I never fully feel comfortable with Free back there?

  31. Snook Says:

    Is Chucky calling the plays today?

  32. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Panthers 7 Falcons 0

  33. PRBucFan Says:

    Again sorry wrong email.
    Why can i ever feel comfortable with Free back there and why can’t our offense and defense ever click simultaneously?

  34. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Speed rush from DE???? OMG!

  35. BucNeckid Says:

    Defense is Playing like they are honoring Tony Dungy

  36. canadianbuc Says:

    Again we are just letting teams stay in the game we should be winning 21-0

  37. ladyz Says:

    Time for Josh to put on his big girl pants and start making good dissensions.

  38. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s way way way too late in the season to be getting over nerves, especially if we even wanna dream of the postseason. Not buying that.

  39. Snook Says:

    Freeman looks God awful so far.

  40. J-VillesBuc84 Says:

    Yes he does!!

  41. PRBucFan Says:

    Stupid skins, stupid RG3…

  42. 911bucs Says:

    Boring game

  43. BucNeckid Says:

    Quit Pouting Free and start throwing better
    Clark could have caught it but Damn that ball was not well thrown AGAIN

  44. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Don’t worry, the other Josh Freeman will show up later

    Draft Geno Smith!!

  45. PRBucFan Says:

    Bad bad bad QB play. I’m so sick sick of this hot cold
    hot cold play

  46. canadianbuc Says:

    first field goal wins

  47. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I love Josh but he’s not gonna last much longer with us if he cant deliver an accurate ball shorter than 15 yards

  48. BucNeckid Says:

    Bucs Defense
    Worst to First in Run Defense

  49. PRBucFan Says:

    Eventually the question will be have to be answered,
    Is it worth it to have a QB that is sure to have about 8 good games and 8 bad games every season?

  50. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Woo just got lucky there. Receiver was wide open.

  51. BucNeckid Says:

    At Least the Philly QB is missing throws too.
    What round was he drafted in again?

  52. BucNeckid Says:

    Glad Gaitor is back

  53. ladyz Says:

    Come on Guys! Time to put up some points.

  54. PRBucFan Says:

    How many chances will our defense give our offense before we capitalize?

  55. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Bucs got away with a block in the back there. The refs are pitying our offense

  56. Snook Says:

    How are we tied with this awful team after 1 quarter?

  57. BucNeckid Says:

    Come Offense
    Just get it to their 40
    so we can kick a field goal

  58. canadianbuc Says:

    @prbucfan switch that how may chances are our offense going to give the Eagles before they capitalize

  59. PRBucFan Says:

    I’m scared to think about it

  60. BucNeckid Says:

    10-0 Panthers

  61. PRBucFan Says:

    Are u freakin kidding me…

  62. BucNeckid Says:

    Time for a Turnover

  63. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Looks like the Eagles have been reading our playbook

  64. Snook Says:

    Seriously…. Is Chucky our OC today?

  65. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Very flat and uninspired.

  66. PRBucFan Says:

    Can’t get 1 darn yard…
    Forget this man, we chose a bad stretch of the season to start sucking it up.

  67. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    This is Definately looking like a Dungy team. Great defense and no offense.

  68. canadianbuc Says:

    NO FLAGS???? WOW

  69. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Parrish doing his best Madden spin moves lol

  70. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s so frustrating that our offense can’t take advantage of this dominan D play…

  71. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Wow this is friggin pathetic. They cant even get the ball past the line of scrimmage on a pass.

  72. Have A Nice Day Says:

    That’s Dotson’s 9th penalty of the year, but hey, he has only allowed 4 sacks, so he is having a great year smh

  73. canadianbuc Says:

    WTF?!?!?!?! what is the point of that throw?

  74. Snook Says:

    This is horrible to watch.

  75. BucNeckid Says:

    Billy Kilmer with the Flutterball

  76. PRBucFan Says:

    WHAT THE HELL?!?!?!?

  77. canadianbuc Says:

    Freeman has issues that guy has issues i am shocked at his play

  78. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Rogers-Cromartie free agent??

  79. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    The stadium is going to boo the crap out of him soon. This is absolutely awful and not the way you want to perform in front of a sell out crowd for the first time in a long time.

  80. SacBucs Says:

    Put clark on defense…lol

  81. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    So where are all the people who all week were saying the Bucs were gonna dominate the Eagles? Huh? Easy win, right? LOL!

  82. BucNeckid Says:

    Total Yards on Offense
    Philly 56 yards
    Bucs 39 Yards

  83. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    What a disgusting show from our offense today! No holes for Martin, Freeman bad throws and bad decisions… thank god our defense is playing great!

  84. PRBucFan Says:

    We really do have to take a serious look at signing an instance plan even if it is to scare Free into giving a damn when we aren’t in the fourth quarter down a touchdown.

  85. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Is Billy Kilmer a free agent?

  86. rrsrq Says:

    Sad Offense

  87. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    The Eagles really look like they’ve given up on the season. That’s why I rarely listen to the “experts”. The Eagles have more to play for in this game than the Bucs do. Sometimes pride can be a huge motivator.

  88. PRBucFan Says:

    Whelp, Canadian there’s our answer.

  89. Snook Says:

    We’ll be losing at halftime

  90. canadianbuc Says:

    Here we go there going to get at least 3 on this drive

  91. ladyz Says:

    Freeman must have been out in clubs with Boomer last night.

  92. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Wow. Awesome catch!

  93. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Wow what a great catch.

  94. PRBucFan Says:

    If we lose to the Eagles I would be so baffled at our team.

  95. 911bucs Says:

    Are you f ‘ing serious

  96. canadianbuc Says:

    From the manning throw to moreno on the ground now to this wow

  97. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    100% certain that was a catch. Absolutely no doubt.

  98. canadianbuc Says:

    This was bound to happen

  99. mark2001 Says:

    We aren’t good enough for many easy wins. We just need to hope for some win in some form or fashion.

  100. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    This may still very well be a blowout…. for the Eagles. Lol

  101. Snook Says:

    I think this half can pretty much end the playoff talk.

  102. Patrick Says:

    Only our pathetic secondary gives up a play like that.

  103. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Bad clock management again

  104. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I almost always notice Gibson’s play when he’s in the game. Quality depth at DT.

  105. canadianbuc Says:

    How is that not intentional grounding?

  106. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    And theres the Eagles taking the lead.

  107. Snook Says:

    Can’t wait to see 2 short runs and a 2 yard pass on our next series.

  108. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    At least the pass rush is working today. A Christmas miracle.

  109. rrsrq Says:

    Meshawn needs to yell at Josh Freeman to throw the DAMN ball accurately

  110. ladyz Says:

    Too many chances and now Eagles will start driving a nail in our chances for the playoffs. I know some are just happy for the progress. Sorry, thats like being satisfied with a kiss. Hate being behind!

  111. mark2001 Says:

    May be disappointing at this time, but at this point we just need to make it through this game to make it another day…..how about a 6 to 3 win?

  112. PRBucFan Says:

    I don’t care what anyone says this half is evidence as to why we are not contenders and why something needs to change.

  113. BucFan20 Says:

    So What’ wrong with trying LGB? how great was Martin? LOST YARDS! Where are all the people who were telling Joe and the rest of us off who know how Freeman is now?? Wide open receivers??? Are you kidding???

  114. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Finally a good pass!

  115. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Dang! The eagles are covering like glue. Clark just got smashed.

  116. PRBucFan Says:

    We can’t even get a FG when we are on the opponent sideline.

  117. BucNeckid Says:

    How many years on Clarks Contract?

  118. BucNeckid Says:

    Freeman Blames every body else

  119. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Cromartie just embarrassed Martin.

  120. Snook Says:

    Is Freeman intentionally tanking this game?

  121. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Martin Saved that ball from being picked. Stop whining about the protection Free.. we all know your playing with back ups. Use your scrambling ability to open up the field!

  122. Have A Nice Day Says:

    BucNekid – One year contract.

  123. canadianbuc Says:


  124. ladyz Says:

    Freeman is not worth @#$T today!

  125. tim Says:

    Holy cow….This is awful. We cant run. And Josh isnt even close on his passes.

  126. Architek Says:

    Same old Freeman – body of work not splash. (IJS)

  127. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Freeman is a below average QB when under pressure. Frustrating to watch.

  128. ladyz Says:

    If we loose you can lay it at Freemans feet.

  129. tim Says:

    Now our pass defense will show up

  130. PRBucFan Says:

    Free shut the hell up!!! Is underwood supposed to catch it out of bounds?

  131. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Freeman frustrated?

    How does he think the defense must feel?

  132. mark2001 Says:

    Who really thought this would be an easy game?

    As you know, we are already 0-3 against everyone in the East division.

    But we really SHOULD win this one.

  133. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I can see exactly how this half is gonna end. Eagles score on this possession. Then Schiano runs the ball 3 times, uses no timeouts and is content to go to halftime with a 6 or 10 point deficit.

  134. PRBucFan Says:

    Ill be hard pressed to be able to watch this

  135. canadianbuc Says:

    This third down is our season…………imo

  136. Snook Says:

    Are we celebrating the 2002 team or the 2011 team today?

  137. BucNeckid Says:

    It would be nice if both Barber AND Clark return next year

  138. BucFan20 Says:

    Throw behind Clark and damn near get him killed. Throw into a crowd almost picked and I guess Underwoosd should have caught that pass? He’s NOT EVEN UNDER PRESSURE!! The defense is going to wear down.

  139. rrsrq Says:

    this is reminiscent of Trent Dilfer days

  140. Gt40bear Says:

    If Josh wants to be an elite QB, he needs to stop acting like a petulant child, sack up and make plays! Things don’t go right all the time, do you see Brady or Manning getting flustered and playing like crap?

  141. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Disgusted. Let’s hope they make the right adjustments at halftime.

  142. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    OMG! Well so far I’m right the Eagles are going to score for sure now.

  143. BucNeckid Says:

    Mark Barron on the Blown coverage

  144. ladyz Says:

    Time to ,let Free sulk on the bench!

  145. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    The right adjustment would be Orlavsky

  146. tim Says:

    How embarrassing

  147. Have A Nice Day Says:

    lmao Nick Foles running with speed

  148. canadianbuc Says:

    Did i just witness that?

  149. DallasBuc Says:

    Canadian- is our season officially over now?

  150. BucNeckid Says:


  151. SilenceTheCritics Says:


  152. PRBucFan Says:


  153. Snook Says:

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Wow.

  154. Gt40bear Says:

    That is putrid!

  155. 911bucs Says:

    He just jogged in for the score. Unacceptable .

  156. canadianbuc Says:

    @dallasbuc after that?…………….

  157. Gt40bear Says:

    Way to put on a show for a packed house guys! You SUCK!

  158. Architek Says:

    Looks like this team started drinking their own Kool Aid…

  159. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I just totally lost my appetite. That was sickening.

  160. PRBucFan Says:

    Shall we play for a high draft pick?

  161. Snook Says:

    Time to go do something productive with my Sunday. Can’t believe I actually thought this team was any good.

  162. canadianbuc Says:

    Hey we may lose every game

  163. Gt40bear Says:


  164. ladyz Says:

    Snook, are you a damn eagle fan?

  165. Patrick Says:

    Wow what a f’cking joke!

  166. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    That was yugly!

  167. Have A Nice Day Says:

    This comment section is hilarious.

  168. rrsrq Says:

    I thought Michel Vick wasn’t playing, lol. They should be embarrassed.

  169. Architek Says:

    Yep same old Freeman…Innaccurate and 4-14 / 36 passing yards; yep franchise

  170. DallasBuc Says:

    Ugly first half of football. Game is not over. Season is not over. Relax

  171. Rhenry Says:

    Wow, one good pass outta 20

  172. BucFan20 Says:

    Half time adjustment. Sign Brad Johnson.

  173. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Didn’t somebody say the Bucs would play better if attendance was better?

  174. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Good protection, good throw. Success.

    Well, so much for the protection.

  175. BucNeckid Says:

    Held on to that one until they sacked him

  176. canadianbuc Says:

    You hold and they still sack freeman wtf?

  177. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Receivers need to find a way to get open.

  178. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Bucs OL only allowed 12 sacks before this game, so they are good at pass prot lol

  179. Patrick Says:

    This is the f’cking Eagles we’re talking about……..and Freeman is playing this horrible?

  180. SacBucs Says:

    We let a snail score..Trying to rub it in Andy faces its going to back fire on us..We lose bye playoff hopes.

  181. BucNeckid Says:

    Wasn’t Freeman Raheem’s choice?

  182. PRBucFan Says:

    I honestly don’t care if Free makes some good plays, it’s not like it erases this horrible play.

  183. tim Says:

    Well Freeman is sucking right now. wonder if all the injuries we’ve had on the O-line is starting to catch up with us…We cant pass or throw today. And havent really ran the ball well for 3 weeks now

  184. Sgt Mike Says:

    Poor coaching and poor execution of a poor game plan! This team does NOT deserve a wild card slot. Schiano needs to get his head out of his third point of contact and start game planning for the NFL not the NCAA. WE ARE PLAYING ONE OF THE WORST TEAMS IN THE LEAGUE AND WE LOOK LIKE WE ARE ONE OF THE WORST. Great way to honor the 10 year anniversary of our only Super Bowl win guys!

  185. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Im speechless. I knew this game was going to be close but never did I think they would come out and play absolutely awful against a team thats lost 8 straight games.

  186. MTM Says:

    This game is why the Bucs fans get so disgusted. The Bucs should have put their foot on the Eagles throat. The sign of a good team is beating the ones that you are picked to win. They play down to their opponents.

  187. raphael Says:

    this just in our O-line is really bad today………At least Freeman is really trying hard..o-line not so much

  188. Snook Says:

    Freeman is so bad I’m convinced he’s throwing this game on purpose.

  189. Have A Nice Day Says:

    That was a huge kick! It hit near the top of the upright.

  190. PRBucFan Says:

    Any QB playing this horid deserves to get benched.

  191. canadianbuc Says:

    wow lucky

  192. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    That kick would’ve been good from 68. Amazing distance on that. Glad he missed though.

  193. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I’m predicting it now, there wont be another sell out for a long time lol. I wouldnt pay to see Josh stink it up for 3 and 13/15ths quarter of a game.

  194. tim Says:

    I agree with most of you. Freeman isnt very good today. But on the other hand we cant run. All of our receivers are covered like glue. And hes getting pressured a bit. Yes its time for him to step up. But no i dont think its all on him so far.

  195. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @raphael – Indeed. The OL is just awful, Receivers aren’t getting open, and when they are, the QB is getting hit.

  196. PRBucFan Says:

    Did you just say Free is trying hard???
    Bahahahahahahaha!!! What a joke Lolololol

  197. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Wow, that penalty should have been against the Bucs

  198. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Come on Rapheal even you Free fan boys cant blame this on the O-line. They are 3 and 4th stringers of course they are going to stink it up. But Free has played just as awful.

  199. DallasBuc Says:

    It’s just 10 points in a poorly played 1st half. Stop crying in your corn flakes and have a little faith. This team has proven what they are capable of this year.

  200. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Free is not playing great, but he has practically nothing to work with.

  201. steven Says:

    What the F*#! is Freeman doing ? This offense looks awful make some adjustments.

  202. Pruritis Ani Says:


    He’s only NOT GOOD, he’s TERRIBLE… He’s missed too many open receivers and made some very poor choices. Yeah, the receivers need better separation but he’s been very very erratic with this throws. No excuses.

  203. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Dallas Buc – Thank you! There are a lot of cry babies here today. Whining complaining cry babies. Worse than my woman’s group.

  204. rrsrq Says:

    Will the offense score this game?
    What happened to the high flying Bucs offense?
    Has the patchwork offense line finally being exposed?
    Will Josh Freeman exorcise his inner Trent Dilfer and play like champion?
    WTH is Tiquan Underwood returning punts, (maybe he proves me wrong) but he has been shell shocked since taking that big hit a few weeks ago.
    Let’s go Bucs – second half

  205. houstonbucs Says:

    Brady Quinn is doing better than free at this point.
    Just saying, think about that….

  206. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Have

    Sorry you are ok with a mediocre QB who cant do anything but throw a deep ball unless theres only 2 minutes left in a game. But for some of us we expect a lot more.

  207. tim Says:


    I cant really disagree with you. He is awful today. But i cant stand when everyone wants to put the blame on one person. Hes not the only one stinking it up so far today.

  208. NJBucsFan Says:

    They better wake up. Teams that we need to lose are losing…we need this win!

  209. raphael Says:

    @ silence..there is alot more to it than just Freeman……

  210. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Free is the QB who is also making lousy throws and very bad decisions out there (which he’s done every game for the last 3 years). Yes the O-line isnt playing great but they are using 3 and 4th stringers so that is to be expected. You Freeman homers are going to have to take your blinders off at some point and see he is not very good. Enough with the excuses.

  211. JMoney Says:

    Such a hard thing to be a bucs fan

  212. houstonbucs Says:

    Our only highlight is the kid doing the gangdum style like a boss!

  213. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Josh comes out after halftime with that deer in the headlights look

  214. DallasBuc Says:

    Silence- no one is happy with the poor performance. It’s also not the end of the game, not the end of the season and not the end of the world. The sky is in fact not falling on all your chicken little heads!!

  215. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh shut up and open ur eyes. If its way too damn late in the season to have a performance like this. Especially against the Eagles. You think having a comebAck against the panthers somehow erases consistent performances like this? How many inaccurate passes had they been completed would have put is with more points in this game let alone a W in ATL ala wide open passes missed in the end zone. We don’t need a QB who only plays well in the fourth quarter, 2 mins left, and we are down 10. Free’s seat will only get hotter if continues this.

  216. raphael Says:

    lo @ the freeman haterz…… 2 for 2 so far

  217. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Free staring down his receivers

  218. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Quicker passes…nice adjustment.

  219. BROCKTCULAR Says:


  220. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Silence – Am I to take that as an admission that you are one of the cry babies?

  221. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Was that pressure Free’s fault too lol.

  222. raphael Says:

    great play by Freeman !

  223. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Nice throw there

  224. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Underwood ran the wrong route.

  225. raphael Says:

    so Freeman has to block then run the route now ?

  226. Have A Nice Day Says:


  227. Miguel El Magnifico Says:


  228. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Maybe that lucky bounce is just what the doctor ordered.

  229. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Why couldn’t he scoop and score?

  230. tim Says:

    Nice play by Freeman on that punt to get us the ball back!

  231. BROCKTCULAR Says:


  232. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    You can take it however you like Have… but there is only one way to take 5 for 15.

  233. Patrick Says:

    LUCKED OUT. Sounds like 2010!

  234. PRBucFan Says:

    Not to mention its not like Free’s bad is just bad it’s horrendous. Again, he needs to do way more than have a good rest of the half to prove himself, he needs to finish the next four games strong and consistent

  235. BROCKTCULAR Says:

    Was that Zuttah?

  236. Have A Nice Day Says:

    “there is only one way to take 5 for 15”

    Clearly, that is not the case.

  237. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Underwood was double covered, Freeman should have thrown to a different receiver. Not Tiquan-do’s fault

  238. mark2001 Says:

    Christmas comes early.

    Maybe this will be a spark.

  239. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Lol I love how you are blaming pressure for Freeman sucking. This is the NFL I guess there isnt suppose to be any pressure on good QBs.


    cmon josh

  241. lurker Says:

    5 for 15 is .333

    which is a great stroke at the plate.

  242. raphael Says:

    nice throw Freeman !

  243. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    “there is only one way to take 5 for 15″

    Clearly, that is not the case.


    Only if your riding Free’s jock.

  244. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Pressure ruins the day of even the best QBs.

  245. PRBucFan Says:

    Run the ball every play from here on out. Quit throwing it

  246. lurker Says:

    silence, you are just a miserable person, huh.

  247. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Silence – lol nice.

  248. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Wow, the Bucs were given their Christmas gift early with that TD. Talk about the Eagles letting them back in the game. I guess I’ll take it, but I’d rather have the Bucs playing good football.

  249. raphael Says:

    @ silence…somehow try to find something to be happy about in that poor existence of a life you have …..

  250. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    Come on bucs! We need our offense to come back to life…

  251. 907bucsfan Says:

    What does everyone see in Freeman that I don’t? Nice pass Freeman!!

  252. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    So because I dont share in your love for your boyfriend Freeman I have a miserable life? Lmao.

  253. PRBucFan Says:

    Again, finish these next four games strong than the homers will
    actually carry some weight/credibility in their defense of Free. Atleast he took advantage of that gift

  254. raphael Says:

    GMC is a Beast today !!

  255. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    GMC gettin’ his sack on baby!!!!

  256. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Everytime McCoy rubs elbows with Sapp he starts balling

  257. houstonbucs Says:

    Sapp should adopt GMC so they can be together all the time! GMC is on today!

  258. tim Says:

    How are we letting this QB run on us…I think the old bucs who ran out at Half time are faster than him.

  259. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Then lose the momentum by letting Foles run like freaking RGIII.

  260. Have A Nice Day Says:

    HOLDING!!!! Come on!!!!

  261. tim Says:

    Looks like the Ref missed some holding on that play

  262. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    McCoy was obviously held on that scramble

  263. raphael Says:

    so you hate Freeman ….nice that you admit it..

  264. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @raphael – Hate is all miserable people know.

  265. Patrick Says:

    @raphael……do us a favor and zip it. Freeman’s play is downright embarrassing and this is the EAGLES we’re playing!

  266. raphael Says:

    nice job Defense !

  267. PRBucFan Says:

    Where’s the hold on bennet

  268. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Holy cow! Are we catching breaks or what?

  269. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Eagles are giving us every chance to stay in this game.

  270. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Ha…man, the Eagles are determined to give the Bucs more gifts. Talk about luck.

  271. PRBucFan Says:

    Great job Free for missing that kick!!!! Wooohooo!

  272. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Who said anyone hated Free? Now you fan boys are just making crap up Lol. Funny though.

  273. raphael Says:

    @ Patrick your an embarrassment to the fan community….shut up….get a clue

  274. lurker Says:

    @patrick…”zip it” really, son?

  275. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Terrible throw!

  276. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    WTF Freeman

  277. lurker Says:

    all silence is doing is concentrating on the negative, a pessimist, a miserable person right now.

    don’t watch the game if it gives you misery….doh.

  278. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @ Raphael – He tried to knock us for being fans lol

  279. raphael Says:

    curious…why aren’t some of you bashing Doug Martin….. ?

  280. lurker Says:

    i think the receivers are under-running!…lmao

  281. Have A Nice Day Says:

    All that pressure was Freeman’s fault.

  282. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    Freeman is soo inacurate with his deep throws…

  283. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Wow another bad throw by Free with NO pressure on him. Williams could of had a nice gain there.

  284. raphael Says:

    have a nice day…sad isn’t it …

  285. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Dude! Hit your target!

  286. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    And yet another bad throw… with no pressure I might add.

  287. lurker Says:

    y get away from the run?

  288. SacBucs Says:

    Down set sack

  289. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Notice how Freeman hit a wide open Williams right in the hands, shades of Trent Dilfer

  290. Rhenry Says:

    They need to take Freeman out of the game by Running the F**kng ball idiots.

  291. BucFan20 Says:

    Why can’t Underwood jump 10 feet in the air? Damn him anyway. He should catch all these perfect throws.

  292. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I agree we need to run until the last 2 minutes of the game then let Free air it out.

  293. Keys Says:

    Freeman needs to find Brad Johnson, and hang with him. Also geez Simeon rice is HUGE!

  294. BucNeckid Says:

    Needing a Turnover

  295. canadianbuc Says:

    How many yards rushing is foles going to get on this drive?

  296. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Keys – I know, right! He has stayed in excellent shape.

  297. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Good shoe string tackle by David

  298. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    That’s a fumble! Nice challenge for once

  299. BucNeckid Says:

    Look like a completion then fumble
    but also might have been a lateral

  300. Kirk Says:

    I think that the Buccaneer quarterback position is in “Free fall”. I don’t see them winning today. I wish it were different. Coach really needs to consider alternatives before signing Freeman to an extension. He looks like a deer in the headlights.

  301. tim Says:

    Looks like a fumble….But i could see it going either way. And with the way the game has went for us im sure the call will stand lol

  302. Have A Nice Day Says:

    It is undoubtedly a catch, however, I question if it is a catch by NFL standards.

  303. lurker Says:

    good challenge, but will we get the call?

  304. raphael Says:

    where are thr Doug Martin haterz….? maybe the O-line is the Problem huh

  305. BucNeckid Says:


  306. tim Says:

    Some of these NFL rules are dumb.

  307. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    So even the refs are screwing up. What a F’d up game.

  308. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    WTF We can’t challenge fumbles?

  309. PRBucFan Says:

    What the hell?

  310. Have A Nice Day Says:


  311. BucNeckid Says:

    May have found a Cornerback

  312. tim Says:

    Nice play there. But damn i hate these all out blitzes on 3rd and long. dont trust out DBs enough for that.

  313. PRBucFan Says:

    Finally a spy on that sloth

  314. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Yes Ralphael lets blame the players on the bench to who are barely touching the ball. Keep making excuses for your man crush.

  315. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Lets go Bucs!!!

  316. lurker Says:


    so that’s not reviewable…but manning calling for a replay to show too many men on the field when it wasn’t even called is…there a penalty wasn’t called until the replay

  317. BucNeckid Says:

    Will Freeman ever learn not to stare down a receiver?

  318. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Is it me, or is Gaitor making some great plays?

  319. Have A Nice Day Says:


  320. raphael Says:


  321. BucNeckid Says:

    Nice Pass

  322. BucNeckid Says:

    Followed by a Bad Pass to Martin

  323. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Great catch and throw. Followed up by another crap throw by Free.

  324. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Nice block Free!

  325. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Can’t say Freeman isn’t trying. What a block lmao

  326. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Freeman makes a good blocker

  327. BucNeckid Says:

    I think kwe found our new blocking TE… Josh Freeman


    joh blockin

  329. tim Says:

    Smart play by Freeman there.

  330. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Holy crap…that was a great block by Freeman!

  331. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Yes! PI!

  332. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Staring down his receiver again

  333. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Dang it!

  334. tim Says:

    Im not sure why we dont do a QB sneak every time we have a 3rd and 1.

  335. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Please run the football on 3rd and 1!

  336. lurker Says:

    stocker…that would be a fine in the nba now 🙂

  337. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Eagles giving us an early Christmas with all of these gifted penalties and bad plays.

  338. BucNeckid Says:

    So when the Bucs win this,
    Should we be happy?


    were not takin advantage of all of the eagle F-Ups

  340. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    This just might count as one of those miraculous 4th quarter comebacks for Freeman. Nobody will remember how bad he sucked for most of the game.

  341. PRBucFan Says:

    They couldn’t be begging us to win this game more. Aren’t we lucky

  342. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    A win is a win but a come from behind win against a team thats lost 8 in a row isnt much to be happy about.

  343. lurker Says:

    i still say we want a higher draft pick. they should get the second cb taken in the draft.

  344. PRBucFan Says:

    Miguel- And that’s our mistake as fans,
    Not remembering

  345. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Wooooo WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

  346. raphael Says:

    LMAO @ the Freeman Haters ….lolololololololololololol

  347. Have A Nice Day Says:

    False start on an extra point? wth lol

  348. raphael Says:

    false start was Freemans fault to…lol

  349. lurker Says:

    where’s the discipline? don’t give miguel ammo.

  350. SacBucs Says:

    The officals are dictating the game again!

  351. BucFan20 Says:

    VJ Worth every penny!!

  352. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ PRBucFan

    Exactly. A couple good plays against a horrible team doesn’t make up for the awfulness of the rest of the game. If this was a decent team we were playing we would be getting dismantled right now.

  353. raphael Says:

    lol @ silence


  354. lurker Says:

    2 touchdown throws…but lets keep the blinders on and block out the positives…lol

  355. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    It doesn’t matter if it’s close for three or even three and a half quarters. If the Bucs win going away, by two scores or more, then this is still a good game. Sometimes it takes a while to get going especially when the opposing defense is playing tough.

  356. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    4 point lead in the 4th quarter, Schiano will sit on that lead for sure

  357. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Lurker

    I agree, no way were making the playoffs. Every win from here on out just causes us a lower pick.

  358. BucNeckid Says:

    Freeman may be sucking it out loud today but…
    Plus ZERO Turnovers

  359. raphael Says:

    Eagles are talented and they are really motivated for a few reasons…

  360. Have A Nice Day Says:

    BTW, the Bucs have held the Eagles runningback to 4 yards on 11 attempts. That is incredible!

  361. DallasBuc Says:

    I don’t see the falcons apologizing for speaking out close games against lesser teams. A win against an Andy Reid coached football team is an accomplishment. Lets get the win first. Some of you people here are so mindlessly negative

  362. PRBucFan Says:

    Again, finish this game AND the next four games strong. Than we’ll chat about how “good” or as some of you say “elite” Free is. For our sake as fans I hope that Free sheds his Jekel/Hyde act

  363. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    3rd down here comes the blitz

  364. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Who ever said Free was elite? That is down right funny.



  366. raphael Says:

    db’s are finally playing

  367. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Biggers making plays? Wha?!

  368. tim Says:

    Been the biggest hater of our DBs. But nice to see them making a few plays today.

  369. lurker Says:

    this team is leagues different than last year and i believe are playing better than most here thought. they still have holes and injuries have decimated this team, but there are positives, and building blocks, in place.

    of course i’d love to have the bucs make the playoffs, but wonder how’d they do. i think getting the second cb in the draft is more important at this time.

  370. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Dallas

    Yes and you also dont see Matt Ryan stinking it up for 3 quarters every game either. Theres a big difference between the Falcons and bucs.

  371. PRBucFan Says:

    Don’t compare the 11-1 Falcons to us lol.
    Likewise Ryan’s bad is no where near as horrible as Free’s.

  372. Have A Nice Day Says:

    My favorite thing about this year? Gerald McCoy. The guy is flat out dominant.

  373. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @PrBucFan – 5 INTs against the Cardinals is pretty friggen bad lol

  374. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Throw the checkbook at Rogers-Cromartie in FA

    Barkley or Geno will drop down to the Bucs in the 1st round

  375. lurker Says:

    Raphael Said:
    “lol @ silence

    huh? is this one of those which of these things belongs with the other from sesame street?

    are you not thinking?

  376. lurker Says:

    a pitch…excellent

  377. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Miguel – He leads the league in penalties with 11. I’m not sure Schiano would look past that.

  378. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @lurker – lmao That was funny.

  379. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Sorry Miguel no chance Bucs take a qb in the first round this year. As much as I dont think Free is our Future, he disserves to at least finish his contract. Would even be better if he proves me wrong but right now I dont see that happening.

  380. tim Says:

    do you guys think the Bucs should Keep Eric Wright? I think we should cut him and try to sign another guy. And draft another CB. I wasnt impressed with him.

  381. lurker Says:

    freeman with a run!

  382. BucNeckid Says:


  383. Have A Nice Day Says:

    $55,555,555 and worth every penny.

  384. BucNeckid Says:

    Wright will be gone

  385. lurker Says:

    vj…money well spent

    i am glad they saved their money to be able to add him and nicks

  386. PRBucFan Says:

    Once all season, you don’t see that multiple games consistently from Ryan.

  387. Have A Nice Day Says:

    LMAO Bucs are a 4th quarter team!!! What a quarter it is!


    Hamster Attack!

  389. BucNeckid Says:

    As good as VJax has been this year
    D.Martin is the Buc MVP this year.

  390. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Dougie is having a better rookie season than Cadi did. Thats saying something.

  391. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Patience has paid off…make the right adjustments and keep churning and it eventually comes together.

  392. tim Says:

    Love me some Vjax and Doug Martin. They get me excited for the years to come.

  393. lurker Says:

    wtf…”martin loses the ball” or not

  394. BucNeckid Says:

    Cromartie is not a Buccaneer Man

  395. DallasBuc Says:

    Hey PR/Silence…is the sky still Free fallin on your chicken little fair weather heads?

  396. BucNeckid Says:

    Martin is so small
    he looks as small as a loose Football when he is that low to the ground on second effort

  397. PRBucFan Says:

    No way we wouldn’t be the laughing stock of all “contenders”‘ had we lost this

  398. mark2001 Says:

    Cut Wright….sign best player with the money between pass rusher and CB, then draft CB and TE. Just a thought.

  399. lurker Says:

    don’t worry dallasbuc, they’ll be back. misery loves company.

  400. canadianbuc Says:

    Lets finish strong!!!

  401. raphael Says:

    Lurker…my bad

  402. DallasBuc Says:

    Laughing stock?!? Get a grip my man

  403. Have A Nice Day Says:

    McCoy hurt his shoulder.

  404. BucNeckid Says:

    GMC to IR???

  405. BucFan20 Says:

    How fitting it would be if there could be a Barber pick 6.

  406. PRBucFan Says:

    No, I like I said multiple times. Free needs to play strong these next four games to gain any serious credibility. Unless somehow a all of the sudden you’ve gone blind and gotten amnesia and missed the horrendous play by Free? It’s not ok that this play comes out 50% of the time. My “sky will stop falling” when Free stops his Jekel\Hyde act.

  407. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Barron on Maclin? What a mismatch.

  408. BucNeckid Says:

    Mark Barron – Bust or Rookie Wall?

  409. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Dallas

    Winning this game doesnt change the fact Free plays good for 1 quarter of every game. You may be satisfied with that but when he cant beat a good team EVER because of that very reason, thats not good enough for me. This game we should win. Get at me win Free wins a game we shouldnt win. Or even when he just plays consistant football. I’d be happy with that.

  410. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Looks like GMC pulled something in his shoulder on that tackle.

  411. raphael Says:

    GMC looked like he hurt his shoulder…..

  412. lurker Says:

    gmc hurt?

  413. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Wow, even Foles throws for a 300-banger against the Bucs secondary.

  414. canadianbuc Says:

    gmc back in

  415. BucNeckid Says:

    Barber was jumping that route for that Pick 6

  416. tim Says:

    When a team tries to pass against the Bucs. We have nothing for them

  417. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Ohh… And philly scores to make things interesting. I hope Free doesnt go 3 and out.

  418. canadianbuc Says:

    Barron man hes not good in coverage

  419. BucNeckid Says:

    And who was on the coverage???
    Mark Barron
    Barron = Sabby the Goat 2.0

  420. Have A Nice Day Says:


  421. Patrick Says:

    Unbelievable…..STEP IT UP!!

  422. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s funny how anyone who criticizes your Golden Boy is miserable or not a fan lol. Get real, ill make sure to note that ANY time you say anything to call out bad play by any player on our team.

  423. BucFan20 Says:

    What is going on with Barron??

  424. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @BucNekid – Not even close.

  425. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    4 minute drill coming up

  426. DallasBuc Says:

    Silence…who are you pulling for in this game? Just checking

  427. lurker Says:

    lol…who called it earlier that the defense and offense can’t play well at the same time?

  428. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Alright, Free. Hit your man in the hands all the way to the endzone an lets win this game!

  429. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    Mark Barron is struggling… can’t put it any other way….

  430. Have A Nice Day Says:

    MArtin is a beast!

  431. Have A Nice Day Says:

    That blocking was awesome too!

  432. BucNeckid Says:

    Have A…
    I hope he is not too

  433. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    But calling Barron sammy the goat is just STUPID

  434. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    C’mon guys Barron is a rookie. You cant expect every rookie to light up the NFL like Martin and David is doing. Barron will come around eventually. I hope. Comparing him to Sabby is just insane at this point. Lol, Hell it took lynch a few years before he came around.

  435. lurker Says:

    well, right now we are calling out the bad fans, prbucfan.

  436. raphael Says:

    there are some who ONLY say bad things about Freeman…the same ones who are quiet when he is playing well……..smh

  437. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Barron has been great against the run. He just struggles against the pass, as most rookie SS do.

  438. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Wow thats a huge penalty. If we cant melt this clock and give the Eagles some time on the clock we could be in big trouble.

  439. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Doug Martin: leading the league in broken tackles.

  440. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Run on 3rd and 8……..

  441. BucNeckid Says:

    Offensive Play Calling to lose

  442. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Lurker

    So your only a good fan if you suck up to every player even if they are stinking it up?

  443. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Hand, Josh struggles with the pass too.

    He’s in his 4th year

  444. tim Says:

    Im not sure if our Defense can hold these guys off for 3 minutes.

  445. raphael Says:

    don’t understand that call ?

  446. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Damn Schiano makes me so mad sitting on small leads like that, not trying to pass even once to get a first down and run out the clock. Here we go again with Bucs fans forced to sit on the edge of their seat.

  447. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    Just because i say he’s struggling doesn’t mean i don’t believe he will turn it around… we need some decent corners

  448. BucNeckid Says:

    And then Koenen Shanks it

  449. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    4 minute drill only took it down to 2:44

  450. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    This is not good. Eagles got the ball back with lots of time remaining.

  451. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @miguel – 25TDs – 8INTS – 3200 yards: I’ll take the “struggle” all day long.

  452. lurker Says:

    need that turnover

  453. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Bennett making a play atjust the right time!

  454. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    ‘miguel – 25TDs – 8INTS – 3200 yards: I’ll take the “struggle” all day long.”

    I’ll take Geno Smith or Matt Barkely

  455. lurker Says:

    again…the offense and defense can’t play well at the same time. well, at least they pick each other up when one fails.

  456. tim Says:

    gotta love this Defense.

  457. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    How the F do you leave Maclin wide open with no one within ten yards of him?!!!

  458. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    If the Eagles score the bucs wont have enough time left to do anything. This possession is the game.

  459. BucNeckid Says:

    Oh No!!!!

  460. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Eagles gave the Bucs a chance to win and the Bucs are giving it right back.

  461. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    Boy Philly’s O-line is AWFUL… thank god for us. We had 18 sacks this season. Now we have 24.

    Mccoy is having a career game today. He’s living in philly’s backfield.

  462. lurker Says:

    barkley will not do well in the nfl. perhaps worse than “sanchise”

  463. Have A Nice Day Says:

    The infamous Danny Gorrer with the holding penalty.

  464. lurker Says:

    y that wide open at the sticks?

  465. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @miguel – 25TDs – 8INTS – 3200 yards: I’ll take the “struggle” all day long.

    Dont forget his completion percentage. Which is rediculously low. Which means if he isn’t throwing an accurate deep ball he’s not doing anything. I tend to agree with Miguel. You cant beat good teams if all you can do is throw deep.

  466. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Two more plays to win the game!

  467. PRBucFan Says:

    Are we trying to blitz by blitzing all out?

  468. tim Says:

    I swear the Qb start runnin and our guys turn the other way.

  469. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    That’s one play

  470. lurker Says:

    panthers win 30-20

  471. tim Says:


    Guess so. Dont get it. Our Dbs aren’t good enough for that.

  472. Have A Nice Day Says:

    I remember two years ago when Free had a 62% completion percentage and everyone complained he didn’t throw deep enough lol

    You wont be happy until we have Manning. Heck, you may never be happy.

  473. 911bucs Says:

    This isn’t looking good

  474. Patrick Says:

    Wow this team is so self destructive!!!!!

  475. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Maybe their receiver will go out of bounds before catching the winning TD or drop his heel on the chalk

  476. raphael Says:

    they should double Cooper

  477. raphael Says:

    3 and 8 and we ran the ball ..still smh

    Oh i see. It was the great Ej biggers with the coverage.

  485. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Bet they run it off a pass look.

    McCoy with the sack? Barber with the pick?

  487. mark2001 Says:

    Season on the line. One play. This is it for the season. Wow.

  488. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Have you are just sounding really dumb right about now. Just answer me 1 simple question. Have you ever seen or heard of a good qb who consistantly plays bad for 3 quarters of every game?

  489. tim Says:

    Im sorry. This defense freaking sucks so bad.

  490. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Looked like offensive pass interference

  491. raphael Says:


  492. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    When your team is struggling, guess what the cure is? Playing the Bucs. Works every time.

    @Silence – “Have you are just sounding really dumb right about now. ” Attack when you can not defeat stat.

    Yes I have. Josh Freeman.

  497. Patrick Says:

    Wow F’CK you Tampa!! Pathetic.

  498. raphael Says:

    this one is on Coach Shiano and 3rd and 8

  499. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Once again Schiano kills his own team’s chances by being too conservative in crunch time. I’m starting to have hateful feelings towards that guy.

  500. Cmurda Says:

    Worst coached game of the year. This defense is an embarrassment to the game of football. Now that our season is over, Im hoping for Christmas to get a defense next year. Disgusting.

  501. Kirk Says:

    I put this loss squarely on the shoulders of Josh Freeman. He had plenty of opportunities to move the ball, but his inconsistent play killed this game. No contract extension.

  502. Gt40bear Says:

    That’s the Bucs’ defense we’ve come to and loathe!

  503. 507 Bucs fan Says:

    Our Cornerback are costing us games… damn damn damn!!! This is Karma from the Matt Bryant 62 fg from the 06 season

  504. PRBucFan Says:

    Looks like Free’s Jekel was too much for our Bucs to overcome in the end. Wow, just wow.

  505. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @raphael – this has been great. Silence is a keeper. Made me laugh.

  506. DallasBuc Says:

    Another tough loss this year. We will win most of these close ones next year. Damn. Swept by the NFC east

  507. lurker Says:

    time to go…the cockroaches are coming out. hopefully they can rag on the defense equally for this loss.

    2-100 yrd receivers this game again

  508. mark2001 Says:

    Any idea where we will draft if we lose out?

  509. Patrick Says:

    5th straight year of no playoffs. How enjoyable.

  510. NoNameBuc Says:

    Lost, The state of Florida sucks at pro football just like they suck at everything else, including voting. I’m ashamed of even living there.

  511. SacBucs Says:

    Trying to rub it in Andy face huh….fudge ahhh that hurted

  512. 911bucs Says:

    358 yards by a rookie qb. That’s crazy

  513. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Our QB threw two TDs and no picks and people are acting if he single handedly lost this game lol

  514. Patrick Says:

    This is how Freeman is.

    One week we all love him, the next week he pisses all of us off.

  515. PRBucFan Says:

    Don’t blame the defense they wouldn’t have been put in that situation to lose this game if Free didn’t have such a terrible 3 quarters.

  516. lurker Says:

    offense had us in position to win. the last drive sucked. but the defense…

    dropped int on the last series, knowles jogged in wide open, receivers running all around the deep field.

  517. BucFan20 Says:

    Maybe Shaun King would like to run his mouth some more now. 2011 BUCS???

  518. ShelbyBucsGurl Says:

    Now can we please STOP all the nonsensical playoff talk here boys? With a secondary re-build we will Wildcard in 2013. As Coach Jimmy Johnson said about the Buc’s, you cannot fix it ALL in one year.

  519. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Lol you guys are killing me blameing this on the Defense. This defense is light years better than last year. But you cant fix everything in 1 year. We all knew the game was over once Free went 3 and out. if you want to place blame on someone, how about Schiano and Sullivans horrible play calling? Or how about Free’s 3 quarters of garbage football. The defense is the last thing to place the blame on.

  520. Gt40bear Says:

    This is a total team loss, but i can see why DC got his butt fired from NY. Crunch time defensive play calling SUCKS! Oh well, they are what hey are. With the 12th pick in the 2013 NFL draft…

  521. Patrick Says:

    Get rid of Bill Sheridan and hire Monte Kiffin back. Our defense has been sh*t ever since he left.

  522. Ryan Says:

    Atleast there’s only 3 games left in the EJ Biggers era.

    Never seen a pro CB get burned so much as him.

  523. J-VillesBuc84 Says:

    I’m so sick of our offense not being consistent. Plenty of times to just get into field goal range in the first half. All this money on offense!!

  524. Sgt Mike Says:

    Schiano…. College coach of the year. Bull spit! This why they can’t sell out the stadium. They can NEVER finish the job even against a crappy Eagles team. If Mike Sullivan gets a head coaching job because of his performance here that means the league has lost it’s mind. Chickensh*t coaching and game plan.

  525. lurker Says:

    no, patrick…he pisses you, pr, and silence off. lol

    this was a team loss pr. offense, defense, and that shanked punt.

  526. Nano Says:

    The Bucs are an embarrassment as a defense.
    Open thread this joe
    Schiano 3rd and 8 and you run trust your defense? What a dumbass!!!!

  527. BucfaninMi Says:

    They win no more games this year!! Done!!

  528. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Whatever the Bucs secondary is made of, maybe they can bottle it and sell it as a cure for cancer, because it sure as hell cures every single struggling team that plays the Bucs. Combine that with Schiano’s ridiculous game management and opposing teams having a winning formula.

  529. mark2001 Says:

    I think some of you have a point…..how do you put this game on the “D’s” shoulders when you have such a lousy secondary…..and the 3rd and 8 run was basically what we would have done in 1999. Newsflash Shiano…this is not the ’99 D, even if Monte is in town.

  530. PRBucFan Says:

    And he should have had better stats or did you forget already that the defense put him in numerous positions to score even a measly FG in the first half and he couldn’t even get positive yardage.

  531. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Our QB threw two TDs and no picks and people are acting if he single handedly lost this game lol


    And also played awful for the first 3 quarters… but nooo that as long as you can ride on his jock strap he can do no wrong in your eyes.

    Philly’s offensive line is just as depleted as ours is and there rookie QB played MUCH better than ours.

  532. NJBucsFan Says:

    Worst secondary in the league. I have other words for them but trying to keep this a family website…..

  533. Ryan Says:

    “Lol you guys are killing me blameing this on the Defense. This defense is light years better than last year. But you cant fix everything in 1 year. We all knew the game was over once Free went 3 and out. if you want to place blame on someone, how about Schiano and Sullivans horrible play calling? Or how about Free’s 3 quarters of garbage football. The defense is the last thing to place the blame on.”

    The offense didnt go 3 and out. Martin got a first down run on the first play of the series.

    Defense is the worst passing defense in league history by a wide margin. They are better but not light years better when you have rookie QBs throwing for close to 400 yards on them.

    Defense gave up 2 TDs in the last half of the 4th. Couldnt make easy INTs and gave up 2 4th downs.

    But yeah, lets not blame the defense.

  534. Patrick Says:

    Yeah remember after 2010…..when we all thought we would be a playoff team in 2011? Look what happened.

    Based on our history, I’m not betting necessarily betting money on the Bucs making the playoffs next year.

  535. lurker Says:

    silence, you must have balls in your face all day since you are always talking about jockstraps!

  536. Gt40bear Says:

    Bucs 4th qtr. … Offense–too conservative, Defense—none, SP—GREAT punt!
    Doesn’t say much about the confidence Coach has in Josh.

  537. Gunner Eleven Says:

    This is a trend. These Bucs can’t play with a lead. Freeman can only make plays when they are behind. It’s sad because the last memories of the game are of the defense trying to protect a small lead. Ev1 forgets all the failed 3rd down conversions and all the bad throws by Freeman.

    Freeman needs to go, trade him away to the Raiders. Free is a loser! He only knows how to lose. Rah’s last gift to the Bucs, a QB that doesn’t care about winning.

  538. Ladyz Says:

    Freeman this s@@@ game is on you. You built it!

  539. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Schiano showed some good things in his first season but he also showed some serious flaws in the way he manages a lead. He doesn’t play to win. He plays not to lose. Makes me want to punch him right in the mouth it’s so frustrating. I seriously hope he makes improvements because this is maddening for fans. I can see it coming almost every single week even before it happens because I know exactly how he’s gonna hunker down with even a one point lead.

  540. BucfaninMi Says:

    Has anyone noticed that the Bucs can NEVER beat a back-up QB? Look at the history!!

  541. mark2001 Says:

    Movin’ on up….up the draft board.

    Honestly guys….how many good teams have we beaten this year.

    We were fooling ourselves. Let’s hope for a good FA and great draft.

  542. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Ok Ryan so you expected the Defense to come out with a stop even though they havent been able to do it all season? Are you that naive or brain dead? Yes lets expect the worst pass defense in the league to miraculously come up with a stop and if they dont lets blame it all on them and ignore the fact our stud QB had 3 quarters of garbage football, which he does every week.

  543. Ryan Says:

    The punt was a sign of things to come on the last drive.

  544. Patrick Says:

    Freeman is not a Brees, Rodgers, Manning, Big Ben, or Brady. He’s average. Maybe a little bit above average at best. I like him, but he disappoints way too much.

  545. lurker Says:

    at least we are in games compared to last year. the team IS better, just not to where we want them to be.

  546. bgolfdoc Says:

    Ebarressing performance by that defence, especially with the 2002 team there.

  547. Buccsfan76 Says:

    This is a team loss! Free looked like crap in the first half. The play calling on both sides of the ball in the 4th was pathetic at best. Most of all the DBs were complete $#!T. They made Nick Foles looked like a HOF QB going 32/51, 381 yards and 2 TDs. Hell, even ran like Newton when he ad a chance.

  548. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Silence – You are blinded by your own rage. I called out Freeman for his bad throws and wrote how he needs to “hit the target”. You fail to recognize that.

    I just realize that there are 10 other people on the field with him and 11 on the field when he is not. Saying that this loss is on Freeman is pure foolishness. 189 and two TDs is not losing a game.

  549. ladyz Says:

    Time for Orlinskie! I’m pissed off and hate the prevent defense .

  550. lurker Says:

    good draft, free agents, and injured players returned = improved team

  551. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Bucs need a great CB in FA and a quality QB in the 1st round

  552. mark2001 Says:

    The point about any QB is that they must develop consistency. Brad Johnson was a SB winning QB. You knew what we had and he wasn’t a question mark that would come back to bite us when we least expected it. But in a playoff mode, you can’t have a guy that is great one game and bad the next. Matt Ryan may be no better….we will see.

  553. BucfaninMi Says:

    Draft Barkley !

  554. Patrick Says:

    MONTE KIFFIN. He gave us the best defense in Bucs history! I want him back here! Sheridan sucks.

  555. Ryan Says:

    Silence is such a moron. Asking for a stop is now basically asking for a miracle? Funny how you want to hold the offense accountable yet you always give the defense a pass.

    I guess asking the defense not to give up 3rd and 14, 4th and 2, and 4th and 5 all on the same driving is asking too much from them.

  556. Patrick Says:

    Barkley? Do you want another Mark Sanchez or Matt Leinart?

  557. greg slother Says:

    Freeman is NOT an elite QB or close to it. Wishing won’t make it so. He is a low completion moron with happy feet. Need to realize it andmove on

  558. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Its as if he doesn’t play like the best in every game he is awful… I don’t get it. This team would not win any game if Freeman were not throwing 25 TDs and not turning the ball over.

  559. Ramdog Says:

    They had good pressure it is just our secondary is horrible. Have never seen so people running free. How do you loose a game after getting 7 sacks. I also think Bill Sheridan is not a good coordinator. Play more zone so we are number 5 or 10 against the rush maybe we can cover more people. Also do our DB’s get coached. Ever receiver has a career day against them every week. Yeh Freeman had a bad game but he didn’t turn it over and threw 2 TD’s also Martin rushed for a 128 yds. and a TD. I think we should’ve thrown more on our last drive do play action on second and make a high percentage throw. They are selling out to stop the run. Don’t the coaches realize our defense can’t stop anyone ?? We need to stop depending on our defense to stop anyone.

  560. Pruritis Ani Says:

    I m so p*ssed off right now I want to smash something. Unfortunately this is one of those losses that a huge emotional downer for the team. Hope they can bounce back and at least finish with a respectable record. 8-8 was predicted by many at the beginning of the year.

    There are still way too many penalties at critical moments of the game.

  561. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    We just handed them the game on our last drive. Running the ball on 3rd down when the other team has plenty of time left. Just stupid and hard to watch. Should have just let them score and tried to go back down the field. Seems like the only time we can muster an offense is when were behind

  562. lurker Says:

    screw barkley! why do people keep asking for him? he sucks. he has no arm, is only a game manager, and did poorly when he had no o-line.

  563. ShelbyBucsGurl Says:

    This one really has to sting you SilenceTheCritics. Now that the season is officially tanked the critics can stick it in your face from now until next September!

  564. Keys Says:

    Monte kiffin !!!!

  565. Ryan Says:

    “Bucs need a great CB in FA and a quality QB in the 1st round”

    wow, I guess you dont watch college football. You arent finding anyone close to Freeman in the draft this year.

  566. Justin Says:

    This defense has failed to lock down several games this year. Washington, Giants, Eagles. They tried their best to give away the Oakland game too.

    Some of this is personnel, some is scheme/play calling. Whatever it is, it’s a major problem. Absolutely no excuse for losing that game.

  567. PRBucFan Says:

    Such denial is hilarious. We shouldn’t of even been in the position to lose this game. Gift wrapped this game two missed FG’s a muffed punt to
    set up one of the two TD’s by our oh so amazing MrJekel&MrsHyde QB. Our defense put us in positions to put up way more points than we got, henceforth our defense put our offense in position to win this game way before that last drive. They couldn’t do it.

  568. Patrick Says:

    I don’t think we’re ever going to understand Freeman. He has an excellent TD to INT ratio, but his completion % is so bad. And he always seems better on paper than in person.

  569. Gunner Eleven Says:

    Freeman is the worst player on the offense. Go down the list. He’s surrounded by talent.

    Don’t even try to blame the playcalling, because it’s the same playcalling that gets them the wins, and it’s the same coaching that gets them prepared. Freeman isn’t an NFL starter. He can’t make all the throws. He’s inaccurate. He stares down receivers. He makes bad decisions – like throwing a checkdown 6 yards behind the line of scrimmage when there are 2 or 3 defensive players in the same area.

    189 yds passing in 2012 is pathetic.

    we could run the wildcat ahnd have more passing yardage

  570. houstonbucs Says:

    Dominic Rodgers cromortie is a free agent next year. He’s pretty good, as you all saw. ,;)

  571. ladyz Says:

    Time for a quarter back change. No more sale outs for a long-long time.

  572. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Saying Freeman didn’t throw any picks is misleading. He threw a few jump balls and picks, the Eagles just dropped them. Asomuga had one right in his hands.

  573. Justin Says:

    Freeman did play like garbage but he also did make a few plays. Our secondary made how many plays? ZERO! This one is on them. Foles threw for almost 400 yds and 2 TDs. That’s a disgrace

  574. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Ryan, asking a defense to come up with a stop who hasent been able to do it all season is foolish. Maybe you dont know how football works, or maybe you are one of those hopeless homers who think miracles happen every game, but it doesnt work like that. This game was over once we gave them the ball back with almost 3 minutes left to score. I never gave the defense a pass. Ive said multiple times we have the worst pass defense in the league. You have to expect that… you know its coming. If you know its coming and it happens… why are you surprised? The defense played consistantly well for a majority of this game. Lol

    Have, yes there are 10 other guys on the field but how many of them touch the ball on every play?… How many of them play horrible for 3 quarters of a game? If anyone is blind it is you buddy.

  575. Patrick Says:

    Dominic Rodgers is horrible, he only played good because he faced the BUCS

  576. houstonbucs Says:

    Far and above any single one if our cbs. If he’s cheap, I’d say it’s worth a look…

  577. PRBucFan Says:

    Our defense played one of their better games, That’s the truth. You know what else is the truth our QB’s leash is getting shorter by the minute. Better bet ur arse he won’t be getting re upped for many more years if he keeps up the inconsistency.

  578. lurker Says:

    prbucsfan, please don’t use henceforth….especially, incorrectly.

  579. Andrew Says:

    @ silence

    your wrong again. your forgeting the stand our defense did vs the raiders.

  580. J-VillesBuc84 Says:

    I’d take CB’s over a knew QB. Yes Freeman was horrible, but the defense got killed that last drive. It’s bad when they don’t even have Jackson and McCoy and they still kill our defense at the end. Even our D-line don’t be fooled. Yes they got sacks, but that was agiant a weak o-line. So many picks on defense and so much money on offense and we always lose by a score or less. Defense plays good at first/ offense can’t do anything. Offense starts getting us back in the game and ahead/ defense gives the game up at end. One time please bucs play good on both sides of the ball threw out the whole game.

  581. Gt40bear Says:

    Sheridan does suck and Monte did give us the greatest Bucs defenses ever, but don’t forget he did quit on them and us! Don’t know what the answer is but something’s got to give!

  582. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Silence – The running game was no where in the first half too, yet no shots at Martin or the blocking. Ridiculous. The bias is so thick it is suffocating.

  583. raphael Says:

    Freeman is a franchise QB…he did his job today and put points on the board…Gorer catch the ball and game over….Freeman did not call a run on 3rd and 8 ….some of you are just silly …

  584. PRBucFan Says:

    Not to mention if the Eagles DB’s held on to the ball just as Lynch said Free should have had atleast 3 picks.

  585. raphael Says:


  586. Have A Nice Day Says:

    First half defense was great, second half not so much. Second half offense was rolling, first half not so much. I don’t understand why the offense and defense can’t play well at the same time. This team would be unstoppable.

  587. PRBucFan Says:

    Stick to football lurker, ill use henceforth however the hell I want to. Understood?

  588. st augustine Says:

    just heard on the buccaneers radio network freeman missed a lot of high completion passes.

  589. Ryan Says:

    Sheridan does suck and Monte did give us the greatest Bucs defenses ever, but don’t forget he did quit on them and us! Don’t know what the answer is but something’s got to give!

    Pretty sure the answer will be Butch Davis next year.

  590. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Andrew

    Miracles do happen sometimes. Just not every game 😀

  591. lurker Says:

    the tampa 2 would get destroyed now in the nfl. monte would have to make changes to his defense, but i don’t know if he is flexible or set in his ways.

  592. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @raphael – Freeman did not do a great job for most of the day. Lets not go that far. I like Freeman, but I would never say today was a great day. Phillies coverage was great but Freeman had many purely bad throws.

  593. NJBucsFan Says:

    Love how the first play of the NO-NY game I catch is a former Bucs CB actually making an INT and going to the house…salt in the wound

  594. Gunner Eleven Says:

    Raphael, you’re gay for Freeman. Josh can’t play QB in this league. We’ve seen enough years of the same thing. He’s played under diff coaches, in diff systems, and he does the same thing. Oh, and this was the scouting report coming out of college. Even JoeBucsfan wrote ahead of that draft that Freeman was a kid that was apt to throw ints and cost his team the win. He can’t get it done, it’s not in his DNA. Bench him now and move on. Schiano is so tough, well, make the tough call.

  595. Have A Nice Day Says:

    lol @phillies

  596. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Freeman is a franchise QB…he did his job today and put points on the board…Gorer catch the ball and game over….Freeman did not call a run on 3rd and 8 ….some of you are just silly …


    I really cant believe you just said that. You lost all credibility if you really think Free did his job today.

  597. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @PRBucFan – lmao That’s a good one.

  598. greg slother Says:

    All this “better sign him long term” is nonsense. 4 years and he was still feeling imaginary pressure the first half. He lost the game. Can anyone honestly say he looked as good as the QB in his third game?

  599. Andrew Says:

    @ silence

    Im not talking about miracles, I talking about defensive stands. you said the defense never made a stand to win the game game and that is incorrect.

  600. ladyz Says:

    Why Why Why??? Dominic, time to draft or buy in FA Quarterback and Corner Backs. Glazers have to be crying about another season down the drain…..

  601. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    Martin had a great game running the ball.

    Seahawks are killing the Cardinals

  602. Have A Nice Day Says:

    “Freeman was a kid that was apt to throw ints and cost his team the win”

    That has not been the case this year at all.

  603. lurker Says:


    from the merriam-webster website:

    henceforth -adverb
    : from this point on

  604. Ryan Says:

    “Raphael, you’re gay for Freeman. Josh can’t play QB in this league. We’ve seen enough years of the same thing. He’s played under diff coaches, in diff systems, and he does the same thing.

    The same JoeBucsfan who cried when Martin took over the starting role from Blount?

    Hard to take you seriously when you say Freeman is the worst player on offense yet we have some scrubs now starting on the OL.

    Larsen getting called for the hold ended any chance of getting a first down on the final drive.

    still have won more games this year than we did last, and still have some games to go. definitely not going to the playoffs unless something miraculous happens. there have been no blowouts this year, only close losses. were a few cornerbacks away from being a superbowl contender. just have to keep at it.

  606. CC Says:

    Good teams find a way to win these games and bad teams find a way to lose. Right now we are a bad team. Who do we take with the first pick?

    I’m Done. I’ll check back in april. I’m done Bucs

  608. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    and you cant discount injuries and suspensions

  609. Patrick Says:

    Guys, quarterbacks like Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Manning, and Big Ben would’ve carved up that Eagles defense! But no……Freeman didn’t. He’s never going to be in the same tier as those quarterbacks.

  610. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    @ Andrew

    Ok put it this way… if the game was on the line, our defense had to make a final stand against any team you want to throw out there… would you have faith in them getting it done? I wouldn’t. Maybe you misunderstood what I was trying to say or maybe I wasnt clear enough. But this defense isnt going to stop anyone 9 times out of 10.

    I thought the purpose of signing Jackson, Dallas, was free’s last chance to play well? no more excuses? have we come to our senses yet? the inconsistent play is torture. Jackson is doing his part, Dallas is when he has the opportunity, doggie is doing his thing and free is still not consistent.

  612. raphael Says:

    ur just stupid patrick…thats all ..its not your fault..

  613. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Only 5 QBs with more TDs. Only 6 with less INTs(relative to attempts). Only 11 with more yards. The area that hurts him is completions this year.

    Not bad at all. Certainly not bad enough to warrant drafting a QB in the first hor heaven’s sake lol

  614. Have A Nice Day Says:

    This is very much the same team that lost 12 games last year. With six wins this year, we are doing much better.

    How about that pass rush today? It was awesome but the coverage still was lacking. CBs are needed badly. Certainly more than a new QB lmao

  615. CC Says:

    Holding call on Larsen. Stops the clock and kills drive. Sh***y punt gives them good feild position. Saves them time. To many men on the feild. Followed by defensive holding. Saves them time and gives them free yards. We drop and interception. Any one of those things don’t happen Bucs win.

  616. Patrick Says:

    @raphael…..why don’t you go whack it to your “I heart Freeman” poster.

  617. raphael Says:

    Freeman will be signed long term….thankfully…..

    how people blame this loss on Free is mind boggling..

  618. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Patrick – Freeman may never be elite, but is that a reason to drop him? If we are to drop players for not being elite, we might as well fire the entire OL and DB corp and most of our LBs.

  619. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I agree with that Have. We have to let Free play out his final year of his rookie contract before making a decision on him. This offseason we need to upgrade our D and give Free one more year to see if he can fix his problems. I hope he can but I dont think he will. I’ve never really seen a QB play so inconsistant for so long before. Rookies yes, 2nd year players sure. But now into his 4th season and his horrible inaccurate all through out the game is a major cause of concern.

  620. Andrew Says:

    @ silence

    I can agree with that, I would much rather have the offense with the final possession than the defense, but to say this defense has NEVER made a final stand like you did in your early post is wrong. I gave you the proof with the raiders game. how is that so hard to understand?

  621. st augustine Says:

    “miserable first half for josh freeman” ….”he’s not playing well” …”throwing the ball high and hard missing his receivers”….”terrible mechanics” ….etc…per the buccaneers radio network.

  622. raphael Says:

    just got done thanks…..

    now go to your learning the team concept class….

  623. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    he’s still horribly inaccurate*

  624. Andrew Says:

    Improbably for the defense to make a stand, but not impossible as you suggested

  625. tim Says:

    Fun reading today. Was Freeman good today? No. But he had us up 11 points with like 6 minutes left in the game. He had us in position to win. So im not sure what else he could do. Everyone’s taking shots at Freeman. Then everyone complains when they run on 3rd and 7. If we would have passed and had a incomplete Id hate to see what some of you guys would be saying.

    For me im not sure how you can blame anyone but the Defense on this. The Dline played really good today. But like always the Dbacks cant cover anyone to save their lives. I think everyone knew it was coming when we didnt convert that 3rd and 7.

  626. lurker Says:

    i wonder what happened to freeman compared to 2010. he is not running freely. he is much better than last year. he is our best chance to win now.

    i agree with hand…

  627. ladyz Says:

    Days like this makes me want T BO to come back to FL . Are you listening Dom? Bet of others would also turn loose of Free.

  628. Patrick Says:

    Guys, I don’t hate or dislike Freeman by any means…….but I just don’t know what to think of him. For 4 straight weeks, he played lights out. But for 2 weeks he’s reverted back to 2011 Freeman, and he can’t ever beat teams with winning records. He’s still not accurate and he doesn’t ever build us a big lead and seems to play best only when we’re trailing. One week I’m his biggest fan, the next week he disappoints me greatly.

    He just had a terrible day against one of the worst defenses in the NFL and a team that’s in total disarray. As a fan, that’s a huge red flag!

  629. SilenceTheCritics Says:


    Because I wasn’t really meaning NEVER just 99% of the time they wont stop anyone. Sure they will make a stand every once in a blue moon but if you expect them to do it on a consistant basis you are fooling yourself. Stop trying to nit pick everything im saying to soothe your own ego and pay attention to what Ive just said 3 times now? Maybe 4?

  630. lurker Says:

    this freeman bashing reminds me of the gmc bashing of yore. good ole thomas 2.0 would be hating life right now.

  631. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Silence – He is still a baby. Heck, he is younger than Tannehill who was just drafted lol Even with all the time in the league, he is still a kid. I see what he has been able to do so far as pretty darn awesome.

    The accuracy and inconsistency is maddening though.

  632. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @lurker – Indeed. I can’t wait to see the grades McCoy gets on PFF. Should be off the chart.

  633. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I agree have which is why I said they have to give him at least another year before deciding on his future. But if he continues to play 1 quarter of good football next year. What do you do? It would be insane to give him a chunk of money if he continues to perform the way he has and doesnt fix his accuracy and inconsistancy issues.

  634. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Silence – Well, if you believe he isn’t playing that well, why would you believe he would command a large “chunk of money”.

  635. Andrew Says:

    @ silence

    say what you mean, and mean what you say. would have saved a lot of confusion.
