Bucs Snap Longtime Steelers Mark

September 29th, 2014
Long-time Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau saw his impressive second half defensive streak snapped by the Bucs yesterday.

Long-time Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau saw his impressive fourth quarter defensive streak snapped by the Bucs yesterday.

Joe knows Bucs fans are still so giddy over the win in Pittsburgh that they cannot wait to get the hell out of work and raise a glass or two to continue the feel-good Victory Monday.

Not only did the Bucs snap a winless streak in Pittsburgh, the first win in four trips to the Steel City, but the Bucs broke a goose egg of a streak held by longtime Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

Joe will let former pro personnel director of the Dallas Cowboys and current NFL employee Gil Brandt detail the end of a streak.

That is pretty impressive. LeBeau is one of the top defensive coordinators the NFL has ever known. For his defense to give that lead away says something about the Bucs.

It also tells Joe why Steelers fans are freaking out today. They aren’t used to getting slapped upside the head like this. Solid work all around by the Bucs.

    Why? Because of Mike Glennon that’s why.

    Glennon broke the streak. Let’s not forget.

    65-1 now! Great to get the win over such a storied franchise in their home field but we have to see if this was just one of those things like a broken clock is right twice a day. Hopefully not but if we do not start covering TE’s and WR’s this is going to be a long season. Not every team is going to give us so much help.

    Snoop Dogg mad lol.

    Good win. Totally surprised me. As many other bucs fans I was kinda expecting something bad to happen. Glad it didn’t. Huge win.

    I will bet lovie puts mccown back in when his poor wittle thumb gets betuur.

    I will go nuts but I bet it happens.

    How great is it when historically good teams begin to stink?

    Who is madder…Snopp Dog….or Big Dog….

    Thought it would be funny to tune in to the am station and see what they had to say today…. won’t make that mistake again.

    Pat/Va…me too…flipped the the FM Sports talk show…after the 4 o’clock break…dawg was acting silly…he should have changed topics and moved on…..so I did…

  12. skelly Says:

    It would be nice if we had a radio host who could realize that after a monster win when you have to spend your entire monologue defending your previous hate instead of celebrating the win…..maybe it’s gone a little to far. No such luck for the rest of us…

    Steve D. simply does not bring anything to the table other than Golf, Gambling and ragging on people who moved here from elsewhere and are still fans of the teams they grew up watching. I grew up here and I do not care if I moved somewhere else, I will always be a fan of the Tampa teams first and foremost. It is a free country last time I checked…at least for now. Sports radio in Tampa is weak. Not too much better at 9AM either but noon on into the afternoon it is just brutal. Best part of that time frame IMO is when there are guests on the show.

  14. stratobuc Says:

    Whatever the Bucs do – it will never ever matter in the eyes of the media. They will not get any credit for doing anything well. Its always “what’s wrong with —– , why did —— play so poorly…. etc, etc. etc. After living here for 25 years and supporting the Bucs, I am getting used to it, but it still pisses me off.

  15. Harry Says:

    I hate the Steelers. I’ve hated them for decades; back when I was an Oilers fan, yelling “run, Earl, run!”. I have never seen any RB as impressive as Earl Campbell. He would flat just run over defenders.

    But, yeah, it was especially enjoyable watching my Bucs go into the Steelers house and beat them

  16. Tnew Says:

    Look, man, Joe’s not going to allow you to bash his business colleagues recklessly. If you haven’t listened in three years, as you say, then what good is your opinion? –Joe

  17. ddneast Says:

    I truly believe the Big Dog has a BPD and if that is the case, he should take a lesson from Brandon Marshall who showed what a great man he was by going public with his problem in an attempt to help others.
    The problem with the Dog is I think he feels Glennon is personally responsible for Josh Freeman’s failure as a QB.
    Personally, I don’t care who starts for the Bucs at the QB position, short of Charles Manson or Michael Vick, I root for any Buc QB on Sunday.
    It’s a shame Duemig just can’t be happy for Glennon to have led the team in a win.

    Duemig must have said five times today that he was happy for Glennon leading the Bucs to victory. Not sure what you’re listening to.–Joe

  18. skelly Says:

    Yeah, I know Pat. The funny part is, I’ve listened to Steve for years and always took the good with the bad but for the most part enjoyed him. Ever since the Schiano days he just seems like an angry dude and has made himself hard to listen to. Especially over this Glennon stuff. He has never gotten over Free losing his job to Mike.

    We vote with our ratings right…..

  19. tamparob Says:

    I still think the Bucs are a bad team- but they deserve credit for the big win. But I think a huge apology is owed to Arroyo. Thom Brenneman and Dave Diehl spent a good amount of time yesterday talking about how green Arroyo was and how he was not worthy of calling plays against LeBeau. As usual when the network storylines get refuted by the actual game, they dropped that faster than Michael Clayton drops passes in the end zone.

    No matter what happens in the next few games, Mr. Arroyo should be congratulated for calling a great game in the 2nd half and adapting to the players he had available. And a great job of QB coaching to McCown.

  20. skelly Says:

    THis is true Tamparob. Arroyo grew up a ton since last week. Play calling was almost aggressive at times. Haven’t seen that in like…well just about ever.

  21. Bucs Fan #237 Says:

    He and the “others” had a decent reason to be mad about getting rid of Dungy… but Gruden did win a super bowl, 2 more divisions and ended up with the most wins in team history.

    So then when Raheem came along, diggity dog and the “others” were ALL FOR MAKING EVERY EXCUSE IN THE BOOK for that guy, no matter what.

    Then Schiano replaces the team of quitters Raheem fielded, and small dogg and the “others” just HATED Schiano. No matter what, they hated Schiano, to the point that he claimed that he would personally run Schiano out of town. Glennon replaced Freeman… and diggity dogg cried foul and has since had it out for Glennon… NO MATTER WHAT.

    That is awesome.

  23. sam Says:

    hell yea! Great day too be a bucs fan! Awesome

  24. Tnew Says:

    Joe, you can pull my comments if you like. In fact, I will give you much credit for re-evaluating your opinion on Glennon. I care a ton regarding the bucs and how they do their business, the facts are Glennon working out for the bucs is a huge win. Like I have been saying for a while, they really need to understand if the young man can make it. I have my doubts, but I have had enough former nfl players, including a qb say that 19-9 in 13 games can’t be faked.

    As far as the rest, a measure of logic is paramount to be a journalists. Opinions are free to have and free to express but all journalists should apply logic to them. The problem is that you that have platforms are very influential. You have earned that influence. Maybe I stepped out too far but I would say that me being “reckless” on a message board is far less reprehensible than being reckless on the radio. Out

  25. Mike J Says:

    I can remember when LeBeau played; he was good. He LOOKS good for someone his age, but that is to be expected with his surname, I guess.

  26. skelly Says:

    well said Tnew.

  27. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Not sure if anyone clicked on Paul’s link up there but the Raiders were down by ten against the Steelers in the fourth in a 2012 game. They came back and won. We didn’t really break a streak unless that stats page is wrong.

  28. MGMob Exterminator Says:

    The Exterminator is on a ceasefire mode for now. I liked what I saw from Glennon this game. Despite some bad passes in the redzone, I loved to see the willingness to throw all over the field and get defenses to respect his arm. It was delighting to see him do all that when the run game wasn’t working, the O-line so-so and the receivers dropping some easy passes early. Like Sapp said, he seemed to have stopped playing like a game manager and showed the willingness to carry the offense and the team on his shoulders.

    Despite what many MG Mobsters say, Glennon NEVER showed the willingness to carry the offense all of last year, even in his best games. He played like an accessory last year. He played like an alpha dog yesterday. He was a rookie last year yes, but we lost some games because he never reverted to the alpha dog mode even when we were trailing in 4th qtr. If this is the Glennon we are going to get from now on, even if he makes some mistakes, there is optimism that he will clean it up. What separates a franchise caliber QB prospect from a game manager type is that alpha dog mentality.

  29. Patrick in VA Says:

    @Exterminator – after seeing this game, I have no doubt that it didn’t matter whether he had an alpha dog mentality or not. Schiano wanted nothing to do with seeing it. The one time he had a chance to lead the team (infamous no huddle debacle in SF) schiano put a stop to it. They let him play this week and we got the win on the back of what I thought was a good performance

    Bucs Fan #237

    I agree with you 100%. I would also add that another reason that dog is upset is that he used to brag constantly about having his “source” on the inside of the clubhouse and when free went bye bye he lost his “deep throat”. dog holds grudges and will not stop blaming Glennon and Schiano for running his source out of town. I know people like the dog and they are loyal to certain people to the point of being destructive.
