Typical 2013 Bucs

November 3rd, 2013

Joe doesn’t give a damn who the hell you are playing. You have a three-touchdown lead in the first half, you close the door on your opponent and put your foot on their throat. Instead, the typical Bucs hibernated in the second half and scored just one field goal.

Three freaking points!!!


Do you know that the Bucs, through eight games, have scored a grand total of three second-half offensive touchdowns?

Three freaking touchdowns in eight seperate second halves!


The Bucs defense turned into a sieve in the second half. They couldn’t stop a turtle from crossing the road. If not for the Seahawks shooting themselves in the foot (trying to force a touchdown pass deep in Bucs’ territory when Marshawn Lynch was running off five yard runs at a crack), the Bucs defense may as well saved themselves and just sat on the bench. A set of folding chairs could have defended better. At least Lynch had a chance of tripping over one of them.


Third down and three when Mike James was running for four yards a crack and they pass when receivers were blanketed mostly all day?


Joe’s guessing at this moment, Schiano’s agent is calling college athletic directors who will be filling positions soon.

Typical 2013 Bucs, crawled into a fetal position in the second half.

    and one of those three TD’s was in the Carolina game when they were down 31-6 and the Panthers had stopped really caring.

  2. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    You know more about football than to believe we “went back to what he had been doing all year” after the first half. We were not passing until 3rd down most of the game. OUR team played Very hard, Never gave up, and showed Great signs for the future! GO BUCS!

  3. bucs55 Says:

    Thanks joe atleast someone sees what I saw we are runnin for over 5 yards a carry and in the 4rth we pass on 3 and 2 twice on drives that could of killed the clock this is horrible play callin

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Why can’t our recievers get open?……are they just awful….is the scheme bad?…..this is the 4th game in a row that our defense is really getting beat up…

  5. Patrick Says:

    They’re not going to win ever again as long as Schiano is the HC. Fire him and make Wannstedt the interim! We’ll at least get one win.

  6. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    what we saw is that talent wins out. and the bucs are short of it. are the coaches a problem, yes. do the bucs have other problems, yes

  7. DCBUCSFAN Says:

    @ Bucs Fans,

    Were you really expecting a different outcome? It’s like a movie plot that you have seen over and over again!

  8. BamBamBuc Says:

    Schiano should coach peewee football… Don’t they just play two 15 minute halves? He doesn’t know how to coach past 30 minutes (and I question if he can do that or if we’re just in games due to sheer determination of the players…)

  9. Macabee Says:

    You guys are going to give Schiano his just desserts, so i’m going to praise Mark Barron And Mike James, Buccaneers that made me proud to be a Buc fan today. A display of outstanding football today!

    As for Schiano, do with him as you wish!

  10. Mr. Patrick Says:

    Schiano just doesn’t know how to win in the NFL. Period

  11. Eric in DC Says:

    I think this falls on the players. They were outmatched and lucky to be up 21 points. Silver lining could be Glennon (a rookie) playing on the road against a superbowl bound team without making mistakes.

  12. tone850 Says:

    You know at least Raheem won some games before collapsing.

    Fire Schiano and Sullivan and Sherridan!! Let Wandstedt, Cox, and McNulty take over the rest of the year.

  13. delson Says:


  14. LaughingStock II Says:

    I think we need more advisers on our coaching staff. We keep coming away with the same results.

    Lets see what kind of 2nd half adjustments we offer on our next game for a national audience….

  15. Max Says:

    If I yelled it once, I yelled it 50 times in the 4th qtr to KEEP RUNNING the damn ball!! James was having a career day…HELLO!!!!!
    But props to the O line today doing more than anyone thought they would today. But damn Schiano, why was Glennon running more than James was when it really counted????

  16. D-Rome Says:

    I’ve seen enough this year. Constantly grasping defeat from the jaws of victory. This is ridiculous! I think I’m at my breaking point where I stop rooting for wins and bracing for 0-16.

  17. ryan Says:

    if the Bucs were going to lose today then this was the perfect way to lose. AMF Schiano!

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    No sacks again…..our D-line is the worst in the NFL….oh sure, when we rushed 8 we almost got to Wilson…but he seemed to always get a pass off to an open reciever.

  19. tone850 Says:

    it’s upsetting to see Blount and Talib playing so well in New England. Amazing that Schiano couldn’t do anything with them but yet the guy who vouched for him is using them just fine.

  20. D-Rome Says:

    By the way, I agree with Eric in DC. I’ve also seen enough of Mike Glennon. What I mean is that I’ve seen enough to believe Glennon will be a starter in the NFL for years to come whether it’s with the Bucs or not.

  21. delson Says:

    Talent got us 21 points. Coaching got us 3.

  22. IndianaBuc Says:

    It was over when we fair cached a pooched put at the 13 before the half

  23. delson Says:

    Oh no!! The sky really is falling!

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    I’m numb.

  25. FloridaGirl Says:

    Sure, blame it on the coaches, but the Offense scored more points today and had more rushing yards than any game all year…..where are you at Defense?? Tired of hearing how upset the Defensive millionaires are when you have a rookie QB and RB and journeyman receivers giving you 24 points against Seattle and the 12th Man. All of the Defensive players need to shut up until they do the job they’re paid money to do. How many Pro-bowlers are on that side of the ball? Team game, but dang…..Where’s Sapp, Lynch, and Brooks this week……if the D was playing ‘Buc Ball’ that game would have been over at the half……put up or shut up

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    This reminds me a lot of the Giants game last season. This is on the coaches and or coach. I won’t say the players have given up on the coach yet though. Anyone who can still say that is a moron. I thought some gave up last game. I won’t say that again. This team wants to win and win badly. I’ll predict the 1st win will come next Monday. Glennon is improving and I think he leads our Bucs to victory over the Fins next week.

  27. Jacko101 Says:

    Joe, Do you think this is the straw that broke the camels back? What else do the Glazers need or want to see? I think it’s bigger than Schiano it’s Dom also.

  28. Buc1987 Says:

    I also think next weeks game will be the Bucs only win of the season.

  29. oviedobucsfan Says:

    Mark my words this is an orchestrated effort for the manchester GLAZERS United and Roger “Here comes the Money” Goodell to bring an NFL team to London. Task #1 Alienate the fan base, Task#2 make case to move team Task#3 set up operations in London. one or two more seasons of Exhibition games in London to fully gauge interest and projected profits and WHAM. The London buccanneers. Art Modell would be proud. Why else do you pass over established nfl coaches to take a subpar college coach?

  30. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ 87…..

    I think we have a shot against Atl & Buf at home and Rams on road….

  31. BamBamBuc Says:

    Blame Glennon! Why not, that’s what we did last year when we blew a 4th qtr lead… Blame the QB! It’s not the coaching, not defensive mistakes. The QB sucks… Rookie or 4th/5th year guy doesn’t matter. At least with the other guy I had more confidence in a 4th quarter comeback. Nothing has changed, we got rid of the wrong guy. Different coaching and the veteran would still be the best option. Now fans are seeing the light, yet still refusing to acknowledge it was the issue last year as well. Freeman, Martin, Jackson, etc. won games last year despite our coaches. That doesn’t last long and eventually one of them took the fall.

  32. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Get rid of Schiano now. See what happens the rest of the year. If we continue to lose, get rid of Dominik and anyone else you feel like. I just want to see what we can do without this moron “leading” us. Is that too much to ask?

  33. delson Says:

    Glennon improving? Ohh cuz he executed the gameplan which was play not to lose. He did his part. I say we trade or release LG CARL NICKS yes i said CARL NICKS. How many games has he played? Im sure his 1st 2 years were gauranteed but now put him on the chopping block. Why? 2 rookie running backs had their best games without him. He is ENORMOUSLY overpaid n does not deliver when he does play. Wrong player for this scheme. He can be great somewhere else but it aint tampa get a draft pick at least. It sucks when u realize not only was josh freeman talented n inconsistent but the majority of the individuals who make up ur favorite team is too

  34. Free's A Boob Says:

    When did the Moron ever have a QB rating or completion percentage like Glennon did today? Not to mention no Freeman idiot mistakes. There a reason he was inactive in Minnesota today.

  35. dmatt Says:

    Y do we continue to rely on Tae kwon don’t? This guy don’t know how to get open,don’t know how to catch during crunch time, n don’t know how to come back to the ball. Golden Tate played wlike a beast…I mean this guy was stiff arming guys to get out his way and determined to step up during crunch time. Eric Page need to learn from Tate cause he was running timid n scared… he reminded me of 2008 Dexter Appalachian St Jackson…”I keep on falling before they hit me”. Mike James played lights out today…he showed determination. Glennon had an opportunity to get a first down with a blocker in front of him instead he dropped to the ground before making the first down…can someone tell me what happened on that play. On another play it seemed to me that Tandy had blockers on the Int and could have broke it for a big game but was content with the few yards he gained. We r n desperate need of a big play receiver…what happen with Jackson, he dropped another pass today. Leonard Johnson and Banks r not cutting it on defense. The OL really balled today.Several times Glennon had receivers locked down but he either took the sack or threw the ball away…which is fine but he had several opportunities to run for the first down. We should have played aggressive football the entire game. The front line applied pressure but our corners except Revis were picked on during the second half. We need a Golden Tate/ Dez Bryant caliber receiver. Mike James is a steal…he reminds me of Eric Rhett.

  36. oviedobucsfan Says:

    I want to apologize to all of you for the London conspiracy theories. Kncoking back some Jim beam and coke to numb this awful feeling of losing a game that we led at one point by 21 points. the sobering feeling is sobering me up. I was walking on air one moment and crawling on the floor the next. I still love the Bucs but this relationship is getting toxic.

  37. []_[]Buc Says:

    Third down and three when Mike James was running for four yards a crack and they pass when receivers were blanketed mostly all day?


    Not to mention every third down we would back our CB’s off and give them an easy curl route completion.

    How idiotic can we be???

  38. []_[]Buc Says:


    You wish Free was better than Glennon


    Free sucks.

    He sure looked good getting benched in favor of Ponder.

  39. MTM Says:

    It takes some real coaching prowess to some how will a team to defeat in the last few minutes this consistently. This knucklehead is the epitomy of stubborn. Most normal coach LEARN from past mistakes and adjust the game plan. Keep playing it safe Schiano.

  40. []_[]Buc Says:


    We have done our best to try and remain hopeful.

    Sorry bro, I lost any hope I had left for this team after tonight.

  41. BamBamBuc Says:

    At least 7 times after his rookie season with 70% or better, 13 times over 100 qbr. More importantly would be 4th quarter comebacks and game winning drives, which he had done since his rookie season. It’s called winning, despite statistics. The ability to come from behind and win a game. All the blame that he (Freeman) should have scored more, making it impossible for the D to give away the game was always nonsensical. He got us the lead, even this year. Statistically, it may not have been pretty, but a lead late in the 4th should equal wins. Under this staff it hasn’t. Fans have been looking in the wrong place for problems for a couple years now…

  42. chris williams Says:

    Please glazers fire this hc. The bucs have talented players. With just a moderately talented
    Coach this team will win.too much talent to be winless. Let him go home and monitor the ac temperature, something he is capable of.

  43. []_[]Buc Says:

    Free sucks.

    5 years

    Now he’s riding pine behind Ponder

    After a second head coach stayed someone else gave them the best chance to win besides him.

  44. BamBamBuc Says:

    If the loss last year to the Giants was Freeman’s fault, or the Skins, or Saints, Falcons, Broncos, Eagles… This year to the Jets and Saints… Then the loss today was on Glennon for not scoring before games end or the first drive of overtime. Bench Glennon!

  45. []_[]Buc Says:


  46. coach80m Says:

    What did Glennon do when it counted? All he did was dink and dunk mostly under 5 yards. He tried one deep throw. But he is a rookie, and as shown on TV the bully talked to him, and he was not the same. Schiano has to go Monday; we need somebody who knows what they are doing in crunch time. If they won’t fire him, can’t they put him up in the press box where he can’t cause any damage? Did you notice the fool constantly running out on the field like here I am since we are winning. At least the O line played well.

  47. []_[]Buc Says:

    The pine behind ponder is a nice feeling for him I’m sure

    Behind a historic awful performance in front of the nation that was so bad they had to come out and say he was concussed to try and save face for him.

    Free sucks

  48. []_[]Buc Says:

    More than Free would have done


  49. Joe Says:

    Joe, Do you think this is the straw that broke the camels back?

    Yes, though Joe had a strong hunch Schiano will be coaching into December if not through the end of the season.

    If you cannot close out a win with a 21-point lead, just how is this team going to get a win, jump out to a 30-point lead?

  50. BamBamBuc Says:

    Yes, Joe. That’s right. If Glennon can’t score MORE points, we can’t win. It’s Glennon’s fault, so obvious! (sarcasm)

  51. []_[]Buc Says:

    Free wouldn’t have even provided more than a 3 and out


  52. BamBamBuc Says:

    You’re a riot bwahaha… An idiot, but a riot. Still haven’t seen Glennon win a game despite defense and coaching… Thought he gave us a better chance to win?

  53. []_[]Buc Says:

    16 overthrows lolol

    Bitter is not better

  54. []_[]Buc Says:

    Just like ponder gives the Vikes a “better chance to win” so says a second nfl head coach bwahahaha

  55. []_[]Buc Says:

    1st down


    3 and outs


    Free sucks, the pine is nice lolol

  56. BamBamBuc Says:

    Win vs. Loss


  57. Stranger Says:

    If you ever get the chance Joe, ask Sheridan this. Why have we switched to playing the 3-4?

  58. BucFan 20 Says:

    Why is this a surprise to anyone? Hard to win when you have a defense giving up easy passes and runs. 27 points is about what they have been giving up. 31. Teams make adjustments. But with this defense our offense will need to score at least 35 pts to even think about a win. Hell even special teams is in screw up mode now!

  59. []_[]Buc Says:

    Yup Free is a loser lol

  60. []_[]Buc Says:

    Brought in for all intents and purposes to start and couldn’t even take the job from a Ponder.


    Glennon is a rook looking better than a 5 year in the losses

    Free is a 5 year vet looking like a rookie in the losses.

    1 is still a start while the other is a bench warmer bwahahaha

  61. []_[]Buc Says:

    By better than a 5 year vet I mean looking better than Free before you take that out of context lol

  62. Ian P. Says:

    Medical personnel have confirmed that Greg Schiano did not have a heart attack yesterday at halftime. He was determined to be completely healthy and lucid when he coached one of the worst second halves in modern history.
