Bucs Catch Another Break

Lambs stud DE Chris Long is out for the Bucs game Sunday.

Lambs stud DE Chris Long is out for the Bucs game Sunday.

One strength of the St. Louis Lambs is its defense, specifically the defensive front. With ends like Robert Quinn and Chris Long, they can make for long, brutal days for quarterbacks and offensive tackles alike.

Well, the Bucs just got an early Christmas present from the football gods. Speaking this afternoon on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Lambs coach Jeff Fisher said Long will not play against the Bucs.

Well, Joe knows that Bucs right tackle Demar Dotson is breathing easier right now. It’s about time the Bucs start taking advantage of these gifts from opponents.

Sunday, the Bucs returned their Derek Anderson gift from the Stinking Panthers by playing putrid football for three quarters.

    Can’t believe how lucky we’re getting. If we can’t win this game, all hell will break loose

  2. Brandon Says:

    I keep preaching patience… but we do need this game, especially considering the circumstances.

  3. stevek Says:

    Win, or start Glennon.

    No more patience for a 12 year QB shatting the bed for 3 quarters.

    The D-Line, other than GMC, needs to get it done too. IF not, keep cutting ppl and signing guys off the streets.

    We need to get better, and the patience of the fanbase has eroded.

  4. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    What kind of team are we if we only have a chance when the other teams star players aren’t in the game? I wish Chris Long WAS going to play. You don’t prove anything against someones backup.

    Exactly but we need more production and toughness for 4 quarters at home. Yes I agree with patience but we need to see some fire!

    Couple of bus accidents, the Bucs are right back in the race.

  7. INDYbucsfan Says:

    Oh god I’m even more nervous.

  8. buc'd Up Says:

    I started doing a little research on past games on how many times the Bucs got ate up by either a back up qb or and unproven rookie qb. Its shocking how many scrubs have torched us, and Ive only gotten back to 2010 so far. WTF?

  9. buctebow Says:

    A win is a win and we desperately need a win. The Bucs need a confidence booster. I hope all of the stars align and we run up the score big time.

  10. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    If the Bucs don’t dominate the Rams and win going away then I’m officially debarking the Lovieboat until further notice.

  11. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    I’ve moved past last week’s piss poor coaching and players display last week, but damn it the Bucs had best open up a can of whoop ass on the Rams this Sunday! 3rd string QB and a backup DE…sweet Jesus if they choke this home game away to a dome team playing in September Florida heat/humidity then I will have to pony up some $$$ for the Schiano please come back signs. Hell we can even hire Raheem for second half adjustments. Lovie can’t be bad enough a coach to drop two in a row at home to backup QB’s…he can’t be!?

  12. mpmalloy Says:

    Howie Long’s son is out?

  13. Patrickbucs Says:


    I totally agree, he’s really good. I was hoping Cam played last week is there wouldn’t be any excuses after Bucs had won.. Ugh

  14. Jonny 2.3 Says:

    Now we only have to hope for Quinn, Brockers and Aaron Donald to somehow be inactive for this game as well.

  15. Bobby Says:

    I don’t care about ‘proving’ anything, I just want the win. If we win against backups, so be it.

  16. Capt.Tim,Back from Davie Jones's Locker Says:

    Are you out of your mind? Or didn’t you see any preseason games?
    Glennon sucked massively, even worse than last year, when he disgraced the team with the worst offense in the league, and the lowest average per pass in history!

    The Minute McCown(or McCoy)isn’t in the lineup, is the minute this season is over.

    Glennon? We saw a of losing football, and league worst offense last year- plus a preseason of him sucking against 2nd and 3rd stringers!
    No thanks

  17. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Its football, your suppose to dominate your opponent. No matter rain rain, sleet, or snow. Wrong, right or indifferent; get the “W”. No excuses, because no one cares

    GO BUCS!!!

  18. Owlykat Says:

    Lovie needs to figure out that he needs to start telling Warhop his demands for OL production or he will be dismissed during the season just like when warhop was fired by the 49ers once they figured out what a loser he is. For starters he needs to dress out Johnson this time and start him and fire useless Cousins and bring back Jace Daniels who won a lot of one on ones in Practice unlike Cousins. I think Warhop had Daniels fired so he would not show up his pet, Cousins. If Bostad is available I would hire him back. He was great until he wasted all his time trying to help his pet succeed–who plays now for Atlanta.

  19. SteveK Says:

    Pardon me Cap’n Tim,

    But I am just impatient as hell with our QB play. When are we going to get a good one?

    I hope McCown starts playing like last year. If we get a repeat performance, then throw my ginger friend with a 19/9 out there. He’s proven more with less in a Bucs uniform than has McCown.

  20. mpmalloy Says:

    Glennon would not have had the Yakkity-sax plays,
    but he probably would have been sacked 5-6 times,
    and at least once for a fumble. However he may have capitalized on
    the blown coverage plays that McCown missed (the couple of times
    we had Jackson wide open on the 20 and McCown didn’t see him)

  21. Capt.Tim,Back from Davie Jones's Locker Says:

    SteveK- 19-9? What’s that?
    Who cares?!?
    Repeat after me
    Worst offense in the entire league.
    Lowest completion yardage in last 28 years
    Preseason QB rating of 38.5

    Didn’t you see this guy lose enough games last year?
    What has he ever done to inspire anything but disappointment??
    When you are the absolute worst QB in the league, guiding a worst place offense, to last place- nobody with a brain cares how many TDS and interceptions you threw. Obviously he was more concerned about having good stats, than he was in winning!! I’d rather him take a few chances- and trying to win a few games!! Then making sure he has one decent stat.
    QBs are judged by wins- not on losing, to keep good stats.
    The guy sucked this preseason!

    McCown is the ONLY NFL QB on our roster.
    We still need to draft one
    It’s definitely not the pencil thin, Beaker looking, noodle armed, game losing, offense killing, alternate lifestyle men attracting, last place Mike “prevents Winning” Glennon!

  22. mpmalloy Says:

    Yeah, I agree we’re better off with McCown.
    Panthers front seven are nasty.
    They’re going to tear up QBs all season, should
    be fun to watch if they’re not playing the Bucs.

  23. Pawel Says:

    Watch the backup come in and destroy us, we don’t have tape on him and plus he will want to prove something for the Rams. Good luck to us

  24. DB55 Says:

    Glennon had a better year than geno and EJ. Both had terrible seasons. Both started again this year both are 1-0. Just saying.

  25. buc'd Up Says:

    I was very disappointed last week too, but Glennon had 13 games to prove he could play for us and we lost 9 of those. And some of those were pretty ugly too. McCown’s had one game. Give this dude time to figure out the offense and he will produce. New team, new city, new coaches, new scheme…. c’mon. Did you expect a Manning-like performance right out of the gate.
    A QB switch this early would set this team back another month. Chill!!!!!

  26. SteveK Says:

    I expected to beat Derek Anderson at home.

  27. jo_mama Says:

    Glennon only had one game last year (his first one) where he threw more interceptions than touchdowns.

    If we don’t have awesome play from our QB (even if we win) we need to swap out for Glennon.

    If we lose we need to get Glennon in there. If we lose against a 3rd string QB and a weakened Defense we are not going to win our division or even come close to making the playoffs.

    So play Glennon.
