Bucs At Saints, Open Thread

December 29th, 2013

rachel watson 1229

So it has come to this. Many teams are celebrating a berth in the playoffs or are still alive for the playoffs as the Bucs-Saints are about to kick off; the Bucs are still searching for their first playoff win in 11 years.

It will be 12 years, and running.

So now Bucs fans turn to hope. Hope that players today prove to be worthy of coming back next season to play meaningful games. Hope that whoever is coaching the Bucs next year can have better than a 32nd-ranked offense. Hope that Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik can again pluck smore gems out of the draft, this time enough to get the Bucs over the hump.

As always, Joe encourages you to feel free to share URLs of sites with illegal streams of the game among each other but do not post them here.

Feel free to comment early and often about today’s 2013 season finale.

It can’t get any worse next fall, can it?

    Can we stop calling him the Rockstar GM? I’m pretty sure he owns the most losses of any GM over the last 5 years.

  2. Buc Neckid Says:

    Go Bucs!!!!
    Hope today turns out better than it is starting
    Penn State is out there but reports say Schiano Staying???
    Atlanta Driving on a final drive for a Field Goal for the win and then they throw / Hike the win away to keep the better draft position???

  3. Theodore Says:

    Man I want a win badly today. Draft position be damned.

  4. Drew Says:

    Sitting at the 7th pick in the 2014 Draft unless Oakland wins and then they move to 6th if they lose.

    Can’t wait for the Black Monday fallout!

  5. Buc Neckid Says:

    This game could get ugly though
    It Looks like New Orleans HAS to win to get into the playoffs

  6. Jordan Says:

    Now that some of the other games have finished, I would rather take the win + 7th pick, then a loss + 6th pick (if oakland wins).

  7. BucPuck Says:

    Want to end this year on a win!

  8. Buc Neckid Says:

    Any body see any Intensity on the BUCS side yet?

  9. bucforce Says:

    I agree Jordan, how many coaches does Dominick get to hire before he’s held accountable for anything?

  10. Buc Neckid Says:

    Perfect Throw by Brees
    Will we ever see Glennon make that kind of Throw?

  11. SAMCRO Says:


  12. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  13. 911bucs Says:

    I see the intensity in the Saints

  14. Gt40bear Says:

    A typical Leonard Johnson sighting…getting smoked!

  15. Destinjohnny Says:

    So Dom 5 drafts and this a the best you can do at corner ?

  16. Theodore Says:

    @Buc Neckid – That was a perfect throw. At least now I know what one looks like.

  17. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    If the players think Schiano is headed to Penn State then we could be looking at a loss of epic proportions.

  18. PRBucFan Says:

    What the hell was that celebration?

    Man that pissed me off, one of our guys should have walked over to him and clocked him in the jaw.


  19. Buc Neckid Says:

    And now Glennon can’t roll to his right and throw
    But wait,
    A throw on first down???

  20. Architek Says:

    Man this is garbage

  21. Buc Neckid Says:

    Third down throws

  22. Architek Says:

    Trickeration LOL

  23. Gt40bear Says:

    Holy Crap!

  24. Buc Neckid Says:

    Not complaining
    But the Ball was STILL UNDERTHROWN

  25. Parzy Says:

    The first touchdown celebration would result in an extra hard right on the chin hit on the next play, if I was Lenord Johnson. By the way Eric Page falls on every return he makes….why does he still have a job? I think he cost us a game this year on a fumble also.

  26. Theodore Says:

    Damn. Now the flea flicker won’t fool anyone in the playoffs. We need to call that play earlier in the season!

  27. Buc Neckid Says:

    Maybe our Receivers are just too fast = Glennon’s Underthrown Long Balls

  28. Drew Says:

    NFL.com is totally hosed at the moment. What’s the score?

  29. deathaneers Says:

    Where the hell has that been. Come on Bucs, knock them aints out of the playoffs

  30. Architek Says:

    I know we scored early but the trick play stuff just bothers me – gonna be a long off-season.

  31. PRBucFan Says:

    You are

  32. Buc Neckid Says:

    Flea Flicker
    get used to it Penn State Fans

  33. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Fact: Glennon = franchise QB

  34. Buc Neckid Says:

    GMC has been Jumpy today
    Finally TOO Jumpy

  35. Buc Neckid Says:

    GMC Jumpy equals New Orleans Offense CHAOS that time

  36. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Fact: Dominik = Top 5 GM

  37. PRBucFan Says:

    GMC knows what he’s doing I’m sure 😉

  38. Buc Neckid Says:

    Franchise CFL QB

  39. Buc Neckid Says:

    Oh I see what you are doing there

  40. BucPuck Says:

    I want Goldson to knock Moore out. He is being a little too cocky.

  41. PRBucFan Says:

    Lance Moore needs The Hawk to knock the lights out of em.

  42. SAMCRO Says:

    wheres this pass defense? Revis a probowler? BS million a game mistake

  43. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Our defense looks like the Keystone Cops…LMAO!

  44. Buc Neckid Says:

    Grubbs > Nicks

  45. PRBucFan Says:

    Exactly Puck

  46. deathaneers Says:

    The defense is looking bad

  47. BucPuck Says:

    Come on Adrian! How about diving to break that play up?

  48. Buc Neckid Says:

    Sprole + Thomas + Ingram > Martin + James + Rainey

  49. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    No intensity whatsoever in the defense. Maybe we can block the extra point.

  50. Buc Neckid Says:

    Getting Ugly…

  51. Drew Says:

    Black Monday!!!

  52. Gt40bear Says:

    Too efing easy. Nice defense Schiano has there.

  53. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Difference between a win and a loss is the 7th overall pick vs the 3rd. What kind of fan wants a loss anyway? This fan, that’s who.

  54. Buc Neckid Says:

    AC gave up weeks ago

  55. PRBucFan Says:

    Your last two posts are crap Bucknid

  56. Architek Says:

    How can Schiano keep his job?? This defense has decided to mail it in today as well.

    No way we can exchange TDs with the Saints.

  57. Buc Neckid Says:

    Appropriate that the Saints are in their BLACK (Monday) Uniforms

  58. Architek Says:

    I don’t want to lose – I just hate when our team looks like a DII college.

  59. Bill T Says:

    2 possessions for Saints, 2 TDs. I don’t want to hear anymore about this great talent on defense. Listen to Ian Beckles

  60. Buc Neckid Says:

    Yes they are
    But So What

  61. PRBucFan Says:


    For you to be comparing players who are currently not even playing to their players as if they were actually playing doesn’t even make since lol.

    Nicks even with a messed up toe when he’s on the field has no match.
    key being we need to get him on the field.

    And there is no better trio of backs than ours.

    But again they are all hurt so whats the point?

  62. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    We need a discount dabble check on our head coach.

  63. deathaneers Says:

    This is the 3rd game that ive got to watch all year, Ill be dammed if I root for them to lose for a better draft pick.
    Lets go Bucs

  64. PRBucFan Says:

    I’m ready for some changes

  65. Bill T Says:

    Wtf was Goldson doing drifting to back of end zone when whole play was in front of him? He’s terrible vs pass

  66. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I’ll be damned if I root for a meaningless win and lose 4 spots in the draft. Plus another loss helps our cause to bring in a more capable coaching staff, whether that’s the head coach or new coordinators or both.

  67. Drew Says:

    Blackest of Black Mondays from Blackheart!!! Schiano! Are you on the Penn State campus yet?

  68. Buc Neckid Says:

    Injuries aside.

  69. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Whew….only gave up 14 points in the 1st quarter.

  70. Buc Neckid Says:

    Continuing to get Ugly

  71. PRBucFan Says:

    Man I am very very ready for some changes.

    lol That play was a pitiful draw up

  72. PRBucFan Says:

    Man I am very very ready for some changes.

    lol That play was a pitiful draw up

  73. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    You know Schiano is praying for that Penn St job. As Saban, Spurrier, etc, well know, college coaching is much easier than the NFL. Plus it gives the Glazers an easy out and saves them millions in salary. Bet they’re praying too. And so am I.

  74. buc4lyfe Says:

    Franchise quarterback? Why because he hit an open receiver….look at kellen clemons stats from the rams game, I guess he’s a franchise qb also!

    Nah what I need to know is if Schiano is a defensive minded Cisco and he drafted a safety with his first pick because the safety position is so important……WHY ARE THE SATIRES NEVER IN SIGHT ON BIG PASSING PLAYS?

  75. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol don’t know why it posted twice

  76. deathaneers Says:

    what the F was that play call. Lucky that wasnt a pick 6

  77. Mike Says:

    If that was our D…… Flags all day

  78. Drew Says:

    14 x 4 = 56 points… final score 56 to 14 Saints Win!!!

  79. 911bucs Says:

    I cant take it why do we time after time after time after time after time throw short of a first down on 3rd down. It drives me crazy. In Joe’s favorite sport golf. 100% of putts short of the hole won’t go in, fact. I know Schiano said checking down short gives us options.

  80. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bucs Defense Slap Tackling and Clock watching already

  81. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMAO….UGLY isnt the right word. Say want you want about the fowlclowns…at least they played with intensity today.

  82. bucncrazy Says:

    I’ve been visiting this site since its beginning… Joe you have turned into cowheard picking fights and insulting readers. Making crazy comments just to get arise from us(like the one about DPenn dominating)…
    New subject now that im done whining, If schiano and Dom stay they better replace sully with someone other than Mcnulty, He was a flop with Arizona please bring in Kubiak!

  83. Dan O Miata Says:

    only 6 missed tackles on that last run…wow

  84. D-Rome Says:

    Clayborne looks slow out there. It doesn’t even look like he’s trying.

  85. Gt40bear Says:

    Yep, mailed in effort on D. Here’s a novel concept, how about HITTING somebody!

  86. sho-nuff Says:

    I hope the saints destroy this joke of a team and organization….but you go ahead and re-up on your season tickets…suckers

  87. Bucnnole Says:

    Leonard Johnson may be the worst corner in the league.

  88. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Someone NEEDS to get fired after this debacle.

  89. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Kubiak would be a great hire. Doubt he’d want to work for Schiano, though. I think he likes independence. Schiano has too much “input”.

  90. PRBucFan Says:

    Pitiful pitiful tackling today

  91. ElioT Says:

    Love these “send the house” blitzes…

    So lame.

  92. RealityCheck Says:

    Watching Tandy and Johnson trying to tackle is embarrassing.

  93. sho-nuff Says:

    bucncrazy at least joe lets us rip…not too many homer sites would allow it…that alone takes nads

  94. D-Rome Says:

    What was that on the punt???

  95. PRBucFan Says:

    10 sacks!

  96. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    McCoy a man among boys. In the NFL, no less. Beast.

  97. RealityCheck Says:

    Bucncrazy lol @ “cowheard” – c’mon man!

    Joe’s been called a herd of cows before. LOL–Joe

  98. sho-nuff Says:

    Nothing aggravates me more than when these gutless players celebrate after a play….you don’t deserve it boys after such a weak sauce season….sorry NOT impressed…be a friggan MAN and just walk away like you just earned your scratch

  99. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Pick one:

    Pick 6
    3 and out/Punting out of endzone

  100. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    McCoy deserves to celebrate. He’s earned his paycheck and more. He’s the best 4-3 DT in the league. F-cking period.

  101. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Multiple media reports today saying Schiano will be back. If we lose badly enough maybe that can change. One can only hope.

  102. PRBucFan Says:

    Best DT period

  103. sho-nuff Says:

    …sure…own your mediocrity its what pays the Glazers….ppppffttt *wave off

  104. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Can we hold them to under 400 yards by halftime?

  105. buc4lyfe Says:

    It’s send the house blitz at drew brees even though he sees it coming….brilliant concept and even if Schiano stays how can anyone see things getting better on offense or defense. Schiano isn’t qualified to be an nfl coach and wants to be able to say I did this look at me, he won’t go get a real o coordinator with more experience and knowledge than him…just look at this current coaching staff! Bill Sheridan is a prime example of who he hires….coaches that can’t get jobs anywhere else

  106. Drew Says:

    Black! Black! Black! Monday!!!

  107. Splengo Says:

    Banks is suspect. Must get better to start.

  108. ElioT Says:


  109. 1976 Buc Says:

    Blount over 100 yards with 10 minutes left in the 2nd quarter and Talib going to the Pro Bowl. We have to find a way to keep talent on this team!

  110. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    now THAT is a million dollar PRO BOWL play

  111. 911bucs Says:

    pathetic defense, it really is..

  112. Bill T Says:

    Come on Revis! Terrible coverage

  113. ElioT Says:

    Let the beatings begin!

  114. Gt40bear Says:

    Reavis Island!

  115. buc4lyfe Says:

    Never a safety in sight….Revis didn’t look very much like a pro bowler on that play

  116. Andres Says:

    Revis getting beat in zone (baffling) just doomed this regime. ADIOS!

  117. PRBucFan Says:

    Can’t stop em all Revis, can’t stop em all.

  118. D-Rome Says:

    Aqib Talib is a pro bowl starter…..Schiano sure showed him!

  119. Architek Says:

    Can they speed this game up – this is trash, Schiano has this team looking bad!

  120. Bill T Says:

    Not blaming coaches for that one….all on Revis. $16mill

  121. Gt40bear Says:

    Well at least I can go clean my garage now without fear of missing something.

  122. SAMCRO Says:

    why won’t Joe let me comment?

  123. RescueRob Says:

    Weekly rout is on. Schiano is toast ( I hope)

  124. Buc Neckid Says:

    Arizona is Losing
    New Orleans is Cruising
    How long before they take the Starters out?
    I say after Graham gets the Record TD

  125. Patrick in VA Says:

    I’m not sure about this game. Judging by the plays they’re doing it seems like they’re just trying things out. Just throwing some plays out there that they wouldn’t normally do just to see how it works out. I don’t know that that’s indicative of our team being bad so much as these guys just recognizing their situation and treating it like the preseason game that it is. Maybe they’re just putting together game tape to evaluate for next year. We’re seeing flickers, reverses, all kinds of stuff. Not their normal game

  126. Buc Neckid Says:

    So a TE is fast enough for a Reverse in the NFL

  127. Laughing Stock II Says:

    Here comes Glennon’s pick 6

  128. sho-nuff Says:

    gt40….if this team isn’t an afterthought anymore than you’re missing out….trust me the only thing that has me watching,pointing and laughing is the rain….other wise not unlike most people in tampa bay we have better things to do than to invest a day off on the most beautiful days in florida for this gutless team…..

  129. D-Rome Says:

    LeGarrette Blount with 101 yards and a touchdown in the first half but he wasn’t good enough for Schiano. He sure showed him!

  130. Patrick in VA Says:

    Can’t ever get both sides of the ball looking like they know what they’re doing

  131. sho-nuff Says:

    oh not just 16 mil…don’t forget about the first round pick as well…but then again the pop star would blow that as well…

  132. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Ok, gotta give respect to Leonard on that run.

  133. PRBucFan Says:

    We have 4 solid backs

  134. Patrick in VA Says:

    Not at the same time anyway

  135. sho-nuff Says:

    walk off you don’t deserve to celebrate…you’re LOSERS

  136. Buc Neckid Says:

    Brees 241 yards 3 TD’s First Half

  137. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Wow…alright. Now that was a respectable drive.

  138. That Guy Says:

    2014 sounds so exciting already! Can’t wait to see which former Rutgers players Gregory will put on the roster next!

  139. Gt40bear Says:

    Sho-nuff, agreed. I guess I’m just a gluten for punishment. Also been a Bucs fan since ’76 so I might also be suffering from battered fan syndrome.

  140. Buc Neckid Says:

    Revis > Milliner

  141. PRBucFan Says:

    For everyone who wants say we still need a TE

    We have a special one here

  142. Gt40bear Says:

    Also live in Sebring and not over 65 so golf, bingo and shuffle board aren’t my thing so…

  143. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Wright one of the few bright spots on O this year. Very few.

  144. deathaneers Says:

    Ive got faith the defense will turn it around, The offense looked dam good on that drive.
    Lets go Bucs, beat them aints

  145. BucPuck Says:

    Reading this thread is sad. Did you guys forget we have 15 guys on IR?

  146. buc4lyfe Says:

    No buddy we didn’t even use our preseason as a preseason game….Schiano doomed himself because it’s foolish to think we need to keep a defensive head coach cuz he picked Glennon, since when did Schiano start developing quarterbacks? That’s begging to keep your job if he thinks we need him to move forward with glennon…nope Schiano is going to be the 2013 Josh mcdaniels, who got rid of Cutler for tebow only Schiano won’t get a coaching job in the nfl

  147. Buc Neckid Says:

    BucPuck = Excuses
    Every Team has Injuries

  148. SteveK Says:

    We need to hold Brees back.

    It would be nice to have a pass rushing DE, kinda like that Bennett guy in Seattle.

  149. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Several factors contributed to the Bucs sucking this season, all of them valid. Injuries were a major part. But you can’t excuse the poor coaching. We need a shake-up in the coaching staff or the suckage will continue.

  150. ElioT Says:

    Nice pass defense

  151. deathaneers Says:

    Ok, I was wrong about the defense, Revis didnt even try to run after him

  152. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Well…at least we held them to under 400 yards…barely.

  153. 911bucs Says:

    @death, second that.

  154. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Banks blown coverage.

  155. Buc Neckid Says:

    Brees 321 yds 4 Td’s
    Ladies and Gentlemen
    The Season is OVER!!!

  156. SteveK Says:

    2:40 and three timeouts to score again.

  157. sho-nuff Says:

    yo Bucpuck…sure…many of those were already busted free agents…thats bad management yo…yet another reason to want the coward gm gone….see: WORTHLESS Carl Nicks…enough said

  158. Architek Says:

    What is the problem with the big play? Again I don’t care for Schiano but 300 yards in a half?

  159. PRBucFan Says:

    How the hell did he get so open

    It never ceases to amaze me

    Our offense and defense CAN NEVER BE IN SYNC.

  160. Gt40bear Says:

    Keith Tandy! Almost passing yds. In 1st half. NICE,

  161. Patrick in VA Says:

    I mean, if you guys are that upset about all of this and you’re clearly looking for anything that’ll support your narrative about how we’re the worst team that’s ever taken the field, why not just do something else with your day?

  162. deathaneers Says:

    Page sucks, the dude fell down again

  163. buc4lyfe Says:

    Do we even use safties? Even if a corner gets beat there’s supposed to be safties covering the deep part of the field but it seems this idiot coach is more worried about the run….what kinda idiot stacks the box against a team known for throwing not running

  164. D-Rome Says:

    BucPuck, this team wasn’t good when all of those guys were healthy. Did guys being on IR cause Schiano mzke coaching blunder after coaching blunder?

  165. Andres Says:

    Can’t blame injuries for the way they r playing on defense those r day 1 starters. it’s coaching and scheme. Can’t wait for black Monday!

  166. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    of course if we go three and out…all bets are off. LMAO! What a farce.

  167. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    The season has been OVER for a long time. Why the hell do you keep repeating yourself? Get another saying.

  168. Splengo Says:

    What I really like about this team is discipline. Schiano’s speciality.

  169. Alexstotle Says:

    At least this is not the 2011 Buccaneers.

  170. Gt40bear Says:

    I stand corrected, OVER 300 yds! EXCELLENT! Fire them all, let’s start completely from scratch with a new expansion team…can’t be any worse, right?

  171. deathaneers Says:

    SchiaNo looks like he wants to cry, I think hes definitely gone tomorrow.

  172. buc4lyfe Says:

    I’d rather Schiano take the podium tonight and say we didn’t play well because I spent the week job hunting because this is a divisional rival…..does it take a whole week to realize who the saints are?

  173. sho-nuff Says:

    gt40… I feel you….believe it or not Im a fan ….that being said….I no longer invest emotionally in this organization…trust me if have something better to do…i’m out…long gone are the 4 hour sundays wasted on this team….

  174. Patrick in VA Says:

    If we keep dropping these big plays and these guys run up the score on us then it might tip the scales against schiano. gotta see some more fire out of the defense

  175. Drew Says:

    Off with their heads!!!

  176. RescueRob Says:

    Fact. Schiano experiment an epic failure

  177. sho-nuff Says:

    so was leaving carl nicks on the roster all year yet another machiavellian plot by the pop star to make it look like there was hope for him getting a broken dud in fa

  178. Buc Neckid Says:

    Graham > Wright
    But Wright is Still pretty damn good

  179. Architek Says:

    I do credit them for not quitting – consolation prize I guess

  180. sho-nuff Says:

    the only thing worse about this game is getting Billick the shill calling it….and no i don’t want to listen to the stuttering boob on the radio miss the call nearly every play while he jumps out of his seat when the other team scores….or the broken glass gargling insurance salesman….sorry just sayin….this entire organization needs a wash….

  181. Buc Neckid Says:

    Glennon Just CANNOT roll to the left and make a throw = NFL Back up QB

  182. buc4lyfe Says:


    2011 bucs were 4-2 before losing Gerald McCoy which was just about all the talent we had….look at the stats raheem morris was a better coach with less talent across the board including quarterback yet they still achieved more than Schiano ever well as a bucs coach

  183. Buc Neckid Says:

    Trickeration = 4 dash 12

  184. Patrick in VA Says:

    Well……that was embarassing

  185. sho-nuff Says:

    haha…sooooo friggan dumb

  186. Laughing Stock II Says:

    what was that???????

  187. mark2001 Says:

    Boy…got to love all that Dom. hand picked talent all over the field.

  188. deathaneers Says:

    kick a dam feild goal you idiot

  189. D-Rome Says:

    I do credit them for not quitting – consolation prize I guess

    I see several guys loafing it out there. I don’t agree.

  190. Patrick in VA Says:

    @BucNekid – Graham is the best in the NFL. Do you really have to downgrade your praise of our players. He’s a solid TE. He’s produced for us this year when nobody even knew who he was.

  191. dee Says:

    Tell me i didnt see what i just saw

  192. ElioT Says:

    What freaking circus…

    Flat out embarrassment to the Tampa Bay Area.

    Thank god there are only 16 games.

  193. PRBucFan Says:

    Why the hell didn’t we just go for it?

    Instead we come up with that garbage.

  194. Jeff Says:

    Whoever called that fake before the half should be fired. Complete horsesh*t! Im tired of being a joke in the NFL. Get you lazy a$$’s back on the damn field!

  195. Laughing Stock II Says:

    Well that is probably all we score. They are cheering at Penn State…

  196. Laughing Stock II Says:

    Well that is probably all we score. They are cheering at Penn State…

  197. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Throwing 3 points down the drain like it’s nothing.


  198. deathaneers Says:

    after that play I almost dont want to show my face in public with my Bucs apparel on

  199. buc4lyfe Says:

    Put Schiano on IR, I’m sure his brain hurts from straining

  200. RastaMon Says:

    It is all about the TALENT mismatch…the Bucs are at a talent mismatch…Panthers…49ers…Saints…etc…..

  201. Jeff Says:

    If your gonna go for it keep your QB on the field for Gods sake. There was nothing fake about that. Complete crap. What a joke!

  202. Walter Says:

    We need to start over from scratch next year. Schiano and Dom need to go.

  203. Laughing Stock II Says:

    Bucs fans are we really wanting more of this next year???? Our defense is only missing Barron. 28 points at halftime. Coaching might be the problem here. Don’t worry halftime adjustments coming.

  204. Splengo Says:

    Now that play worries me. Why not take the three points? We’re still in the game. Was that an act of desperation? I thought Schiano already knew his job was safe. Now, I’m not sure.

  205. DownwithDummynick Says:

    I wonder if it will be at 9am, 10am, a little later perhaps early afternoon? I wonder when they will call Schiano into the office for his firing. I will have espn on all day waiting for the glorious report that Schiano has been fired. I will sleep better Monday night knowing this college coach expirement is over and hopefully any and all future HC vacancies at this organization will bring in proven NFL coaches. To think of the coachs that were available prior to hiring schiano makes you wonder what might have been.

  206. Patrickbucs Says:

    Hoping that’s the nail in the coffin for this clown! Just embarrassing play call

  207. SAMCRO Says:

    I’m sorry, but IMO Revis is past his prime and over rated. I think his presence is over-hyped and it hampers the development of younger players who may feel they shouldn’t outplay Revis.

  208. Drew Says:

    The Glazers are an embarrassment to the Tampa Bay community.

  209. Destinjohnny Says:

    Saints Are a better team with a better personal dept end of story

  210. mark2001 Says:

    Patrick…you mean Dom and he can take Schiano with him? Sounds about right.

  211. DownwithDummynick Says:

    @patrick in VA, Graham is also a free agent next year. I wonder if Dummynick will try to lure him here with our cap space it’s possible. However, if Schiano is still here it’s a Rutgers Roster or else.

  212. BigMacAttack Says:

    After another field goal razzledazzle botched BS play, it appears Schitiano doesn’t take his job seriously.

    Dude are you trying for Cmon Man? People are laughing at your dumba$$. Leave the HC in New Orleans, maybe he might learn something. This is ridiculous!

  213. Jeff Says:

    As a former player of the game, and fan I am in complete disappointment. I about exploded after that last play. If you walk onto that field you better come out a different player. Become a beast and destroy. Don’t think that this is just a game for it is a war. There better be a different Buc team coming out this second half, and it better be complete dominance at all phases of the game. The fans are passionate for we watch this complete crap of a season. I drive 4 hours every game just to see this. Disrespect to the fans. If you are a Buc you come out and completely destroy! Ill be watching.

  214. Frank Pillow Says:

    How can the Glazers not s-can the GM and HC?!?! We’ve been a complete joke on and off the field.

  215. Bucs or Gtfo Says:


  216. BucPuck Says:

    Ok after that fake punt, we need a change! That was a horrible call

  217. BigMacAttack Says:

    Fire Schiano and Dominick. Hire Bill Cowher.

  218. BigMacAttack Says:

    Bucs don’t make halftime adjustments. Pee-break and water only, remember?

  219. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe after three coaches try to coach up this under talented bunch up to no avail, you guys will figure out what a failure we have been in the draft the last 5 years. In the last few years, the Panthers have built a Superbuc defense….we are still at square one or two. Oh, I know…it will be the next coaches fault as well.

  220. Jeff Says:

    Im not sure what will help this team. We need an act of GOD. Please help this team make the right decisions for us fans deserve it.

  221. BigMacAttack Says:

    I somehow think the Glazers think it’s cute.

  222. Alexstotle Says:


    Do you remember the 2011 last few games of the season, that was horrible. 14-28 was a close game back then. they were Worse than now. And I’m never saying Schiano is a better coach. With the talent we have we should be at least a 9 win team.

  223. DownwithDummynick Says:

    Love to hear Dominicks and Schiano’s comments on Blount’s 100+yard day in 2 quarters of football as well as Talibs pro bowl selection. After all they were responsible for shipping them both out.

  224. D-Rome Says:

    Go for it. Why not. If you can make that terrible fake punt call you may as well go for it on every 4th down.

  225. NJBucsFan Says:

    We should go after Chudz once he’s fired by the Browns

  226. D-Rome Says:

    Love to hear Dominicks and Schiano’s comments on Blount’s 100+yard day in 2 quarters of football as well as Talibs pro bowl selection. After all they were responsible for shipping them both out.

    Right….good enough for the Pats but not good enough for the Bucs…..Schiano showed them!

  227. dee Says:

    mike glennon looks good today

  228. mark2001 Says:

    We have about 6 or 8 really good players on this team…most are mediocre. When will you guys admit that we play up to our talent. I mean really…Offensively Jackson is a excellent player. Our O line is injury plagued and our best guys are getting old. We have a very good RB and a decent Rookie QB. McCoy….David…Revis….yeah….few pass rushers…Barron and two or three young guys developing but no Kuechley, and Goldson…if the hawk can stop crapping in the nest, he will be fine. So where is all the playoff talent you guys think we have?

  229. PRBucFan Says:

    That line cannot run block lol

  230. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    7 minute drive and we are at the 50….IMPRESSIVE.

  231. bucs55 Says:

    Schiano is a idiot and right now it doesn’t even seem like he cares he ether knows he’s coming back of he just ready to head out to Penn st

  232. deathaneers Says:

    Now you kick a , I give up trying to figure this team out

  233. Destinjohnny Says:

    Get this kid some weapons and he will be solid – Sammy Watkins mike Williams and Vjack?? Sign Jared allen and a corner and a o line man

  234. Splengo Says:

    You see, the score would have been 20-28 and we’re still in the game. We can’t win making decisions like that.

  235. dee Says:

    browns set to fire their coach

  236. mark2001 Says:

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see Dom go and Schiano kept for one more year. We desperately need a great personnel evaluator on this team, and Dom isn’t that guy. We can’t just improve our talent mostly with high priced FA’s. Then if the new GM thinks Schiano is bad, send him packing too.

  237. bgolfdoc Says:

    Can only hope Penn St woos Schiano away if Glazers aren’t smart enough to get rid of him.

  238. JerseyBucsFan Says:

    Any chance the owners will tell was what they plan to do after this game like the jets. This team does not care about this coach..

  239. Jeff Says:

    Mark I think you are 110% right on the mark. Probably our D coordinator will be cut too.

  240. 1976 Buc Says:

    Blount just had a 82 yard kick off return. Pisses me off to lose cheap talent!

  241. Drew Says:

    Score! Score! Score! Saints! Score! Horrible to feel this way, but I want this Coach GONE!!!

  242. PRBucFan Says:

    How much more running room could he of had?


  243. deathaneers Says:

    Im finally on the fire SchiaNO bandwagon, This is a joke, the defense just quit

  244. Patrickbucs Says:

    Think Dom is accountable as well Mark.

    So the Browns are firing another coach after 1 year?
    They don’t have a QB whatsoever. Sure Raiders will as well.
    I really hope the Glazers have been talking to people already.

  245. Jeff Says:

    There def has to be some firing after this game. Not sure if it will be the coach though. Unless of course he leaves for Penn State. We def need to cut ways with the GM. He has been a huge problem for this organization in my opinion.

  246. DownwithDummynick Says:

    @ Mark and Jeff, our DC needs to just stay in new orleans, just checked the game stats. NO has 430 yards of total offense…..in just less than three quarters of football. What a disgrace to the game. FIRE SCHIANO, Sheridan and Sullivan and Dominick.

  247. JerseyBucsFan Says:

    10 saints players touched the ball,our 3 string wr isn’t good enough for your practice squad thanks rock star such eye opening talent.. Blount anyone

  248. SteveK Says:

    Can we score a 2nd half td already?

  249. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    At least the offense can tackle someone.

  250. DownwithDummynick Says:

    When the Bucs fly out of NO tonight Schiano, Sheridan, Sullivan and Dominick should just stay in New orleans. All four MUST be eliminated from this Organization.

  251. BigMacAttack Says:

    Future is so bright…

  252. D-Rome Says:

    We won’t score more than 20 today. The Saints are going to sit on the ball every possession.

  253. John McKay Says:

    We’ll be back, maybe not this century but we’ll be back.

  254. Greg Smithwick Says:


  255. PRBucFan Says:

    I’m actually going to be upset if changes aren’t made tomorrow to our organization.

  256. BamBamBuc Says:

    Personnel evaluation? Keep Schiano, fire Dom? Schiano has cut Underwood (our best #3 statistically) multiple times. Schiano started Teo over Bowers, even when Bowers play was clearly better. We don’t know if Schiano or Dom, but Bennett walked, Blount was moved for nothing and is finding perfect value as a backup/returner (although we couldn’t use him at all, even as a backup and thought his hands were too poor to catch, much less return)

  257. BigMacAttack Says:

    I can’t believe I was stupid enough to already buy tickets for next season. I see a divorce in the near future.

  258. DownwithDummynick Says:

    Thats it. Good night all, looking forward to 2014 see you at the draft. Come on Black Monday.

  259. Jeff Says:

    Listen to those sh*tty a$$ saints fans saying who dat. Man that ought to piss somebody off. I would have to say this season is even more disappointing then the Raheem Morris year. We became a joke of a joke. These Bucs better figure it out and hold themselves accountable for all of this for it starts with the players. How dare Barron call out fans today. Shame on you son.

  260. deathaneers Says:

    At this point Ill take my high school coach. wow

  261. SteveK Says:

    We are worse than the Jaguars.

  262. Schiano Happens Says:

    I think we can hold em to 60 if we stick to the plan

  263. mark2001 Says:

    Big Mac…

    we need sunglasses. Thought at the time we should have kept Gruden…remember how Kiffin stiffed us at the end of that year? We needed to fire Allen and hired a good personnel D guy that didn’t love every player he saw. Don’t want to see that happen again. Think McKay intentionally stuck us in that last draft before he flew off to Atlanta…btw…Richie…you did bring how many SB championships to Atlanta?

    But I also remember a handful of media guys that didn’t like Jon and crucified him…they will do it to any coach that doesn’t kiss their rear sufficiently.

  264. MTM Says:

    We’re just a couple of players away!

  265. That Guy Says:

    If Gregory is kept on as coach, I sure hope Florida legalizes marijuana. It would take away the pain of watching this team.

  266. Larry@NPR Says:

    Defense is now worse than offense.
    Raheemesque in the way they Quit.

  267. Laughing Stock II Says:

    halftime adjustments not working again…

  268. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Edward J. DeBartolo, Jr !!!!!

  269. mark2001 Says:

    Sorry MTM…we are about two guys away on D and at least three or four on Offense, to really have a chance. Hate to tarnish the “pewter colored glasses.

  270. SteveK Says:

    Bring in a new GM/HC/President of Football Operations.

    If our coached is axed, then the rock star is with him.

  271. Buck Rogers Says:

    I Ted Larsen comes back

  272. Bucnnole Says:

    Get that bum piece of garbage Larsen out of the game

  273. Bangkok Buc Says:

    The worst part of this debacle is it doesn’t affect t out draft position. No way Raiders were beating Broncos. This is truly an embarrassment even with Yucs standards.

  274. Buck Rogers Says:

    Hey Glazers!!!!!!!!!!!! Find a GM and let him pick the coach please!!!!!!! Just count your millions

  275. Matt Says:

    FIRE SHIANO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  276. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Its crazy how OAKLAND fans are begging Gruden to come back. And 60% of our own fanbase could care less.. Wow

  277. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Agree Buc Rogers. Seems as perfect time as ever to start over with new GM, new coach and new QB

  278. PRBucFan Says:

    First time I could say it seems like some of the players have thrown in the flag

  279. Buck Rogers Says:

    Please Bill O’Brien take the Penn State job!!!!!!!!!!

  280. Gus Says:

    @LUVMYBUCS I am certainly not part of that 60%

  281. BucfaninMi Says:

    I would love Gruden back!!

  282. BucsFan68 Says:

    D-Rome Says:

    December 29th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    LeGarrette Blount with 101 yards and a touchdown in the first half but he wasn’t good enough for Schiano. He sure showed him!
    Yes he is; Blount, Talib, Bennett are doing well. Schi needs to go. The Schi supporters can’t spend this debacle and (soon to be) 11-21 record.

  283. PRBucFan Says:

    There’s 0% chance he is our coach ever again.

    IMO 😉

  284. Patrickbucs Says:

    BigMacAttack Says:

    I can’t believe I was stupid enough to already buy tickets for next season. I see a divorce in the near future.

    Hope u paid by cc like I have. You can get your money back I’m told by my sales rep for multiple years. I have yet to pull the plug through this misery. The key word being yet if Schiano, any coordinators, Dom, Glennon, etc. not sold on any of this. Just wish we could have real leadership and a worthwhile team to fully embrace again.

  285. mark2001 Says:

    That is because of number of knowledgeable fans know that Gruden has the coaching ability to win a SB with the right talent, why wouldn’t they want him? Many Buc fans are lead around by the nose by local media personalities that know little more about football than we do, so they don’t know a good coach when he is in front of their face, the talent level of our team, or the quality of our management…other than what they are told. Maybe that is whey we are pounding sand while we will be hard pressed in the next couple of years to be better than more than one other team in our division.

  286. Buck Rogers Says:

    Its not even that Shiano is 11-21 who did he beat! Nobody over those 2 years

  287. Splengo Says:

    Who is Bradley McDougald and why is he on our team?

  288. Gt40bear Says:

    Keep Calm,
    We SUCK!

  289. Drew Says:

    Black Monday is the Fire Sale Day!!!

  290. Mike Says:

    I’ve always given a coach 3yrs….. This is that bad that even I don’t want another year of this! This D giving up 42 is just sad

  291. ClassieFreddieBlassie Says:

    Remember that time we beat the Buffalo Bills? That was awesome.

  292. PRBucFan Says:

    Pointless banter, he wouldn’t be our coach regardless of how many people wished he was here.

  293. Harry Says:

    “Follow the Plan. Everyone has to do their JOB”

    I hope the Glazers do their “job” and fire this whole coaching staff

  294. Jeff Says:

    John or somebody big is coming to Tampa. GM will be fired. All new coaching staff. Go Bucs! Ill be back next year to support you because when we are WINNING it will make it that much better!

  295. Gt40bear Says:

    Aaannndd VJax has checked out!

  296. Buck Rogers Says:

    I hope Shiano comes out to his press conference with a Penn State shirt on

  297. Gt40bear Says:

    God, how many football 101 lapses can one team make?

  298. Buck Rogers Says:

    Accountability…… OK Shiano are you selling me a car

  299. dee Says:

    When you sign a punter for 20 mill you need to be fired two.

  300. DallasBuc Says:

    Listen up buc fans…Schiano is not going anywhere. We will not get any top flight coach if we fire schiano. Nobody wants this job as HC or GM…at least not of any repute. We live and die for the time being with our leaders. Deal with it buc fans. This is our place unfortunately. Change takes time.

  301. RescueRob Says:

    Suck fest nearly complete. Just wanted to thank Greg for re-establishing the Bucs as the laughing stock of the league. 4 wins down from 7 last year. Check. Record setting number of penalties for Bucs. Check. Making weekly records for opposing qb’s in touchdowns and yards against our vaunted bend then break defense. Check. Totally out coached, out strategized, out adjusted, vanilla predictable play calling . Check. Lots of trick plays to compensate for our ineptness on offense. Check . Good grief! Fire Greg and begin again. Horrific end to a horrific season. Check. Go Bucs!

  302. Bucs or Gtfo Says:

    @DallasBuc Are you drunk? No coach would want to come here? God I hope you’re drunk.

  303. Harry Says:

    Bress has a 157 QB Rating; isn;t that the highest you can get???

    How the heck are we 2 players aways on D????

  304. Harry Says:

    The worst part is our DRAFT position does not improve even with the embarrassment of this score!!!

  305. DallasBuc Says:

    Gtfo..your reading comprehension needs work. Are you drunk?

  306. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Aint that the truth

  307. BucYou Says:

    Yeah, and after the game Greegy boy will blame himself and the coaching staff like he always does. He will tell us that they will be “getting back to work”, blah, blah, blah,…..

    I’m sick of this……..

  308. Harry Says:

    My bad, highest QB rating is 158. Our D is showing some pride….

  309. DallasBuc Says:

    RescueBlob..that’s 3 wins down from last year, not 4 but who’s counting!
    Can’t add?…check!

  310. Jeff Says:

    DallasBuc I would have to say you are probably right. I still believe in Schiano which is crazy I know, but something about the guy I think we still have not seen yet. That all being said, if a better option presents itself don’t be surprised if the glazers pull the trigger and go all out to get him.

  311. RescueRob Says:

    Dallas, I said 7 wins last year, 4 wins this year. Relax. You misunderstood and I accept your apology. I can add Dal a$$. Check

  312. Mike Says:

    I don’t see a way that coach stays. We can’t even say we’re going into the offseason with momentum after today. This franchise is literally a joke. And if we stick w this regime we know what the franchise expectations are. We have been bad for a decade. QB is a backup, and I want a new coach and gm..

  313. joseph mamma Says:

    This Buc’s team couldn’t be more irrelevant if they tried.

  314. BucYou Says:

    How can the Glazers expect to sell tickets next year? Exactly what is there to be excited about??

  315. Harry Says:


    Your right. You still believing in Schiano is crazy. But I admire your honesty. Hope the padded toom is comfy

  316. mark2001 Says:

    Wah wah…the local media will party like it was 1999 again, then after a few bad drafts and a couple losing seasons will crucify the next guy. They get their nice salaries, and you shed your tears and develop an ulcer when we go around on the coaching carousel again.

  317. Mike Says:

    And Jeff, he hasn’t been successful at any level.. Keep waiting, but I’m not trying to waste another year, after year, after year

  318. DallasBuc Says:

    Jeff- you miss my point. This is not a franchise/company/team that can get whoever they want. We can’t get the best. The current ownership, legacy and fanbase does not allow us to get first pick no matter how much money and power we guarantee. See what I’m saying?

  319. richmondtxbucsfan Says:

    Lol, what a beating. I dont see how anyone on our staff keeps there job. Time for a major overhaul. Besides markie mark, cut them all loose.
