Bucs At Bears, Open Thread

November 23rd, 2014

Comment here with fans all game long

Yes, Joe is in the windy city where it is rather pleasant (by Chicago standards). It is currently cloudy and 50 degrees. Windy (naturally) at Soldier Field near the banks of icy Lake Michigan. Consider when Joe flew in Friday, it was in the 20s.

As they say in the upper Midwest: Don’t like the weather? Just wait a few hours.

It was expected to rain all day today but, thus far, the rains have held off. There is a chance this game finishes without rain. When Joe walked up to the stadium around 9:30 a.m., Chicago time, there was a very light drizzle.

Chicago TV types are billing this game as the “Lovie Smith Bowl,” as it is Lovie’s return to Chicago where he made his mark as an NFL head coach. Lovie still has his house and famous basement in suburban Chicago.

Joe can tell you the locals are fed up with Bears coach Marc Trestman. If the Bucs can win this game, Trestman is going to be put on the grill big time if not launched. How cool would it be if the Bucs can turn football hotbeds upside down in consecutive weeks?

Bang it here for your thoughts throughout the game. Joe welcomes you to e-mail URL links to illegal video feeds among yourselves, but posting them here can and will get you banned.

Enjoy the game. Go Bucs!

  9. Joseph Mamma Says:

    There’s the backup we know and love. Nice turnover McCown.

  10. Mitch Says:

    Was it a bad throw?

  11. cmurda Says:

    Blame needs to go to the O Line too though.

  12. Mitch Says:

    Workin.. No visual access to the game

  13. Matt B Says:

    My gosh our o-line sucks

  14. DallasBuc Says:

    I hate that I have to watch this bag start for my favorite football team every week. It’s insulting

  15. JBuc Says:

    Joseph Momma is a complete ass. Josh was hit as he threw. Not his fault. Good read and the TE was open.

  16. BuccoDav Says:

    McClown doing what McClown does… force the pass instead of taking the sack.

  17. buc4lyfe Says:

    Wasn’t a bad throw he got hit……. This offensive line is shit

  18. NJBucsFan Says:

    McCown sucks too

  19. DB55 Says:

    Mama there goes that man again

  20. DallasBuc Says:

    What the hell is Michael Johnson doing? He is so terrible

  21. Couch Fan Says:

    Ugh, already starting to screw ourselves.

  22. Soggy Says:

    Here we go shat

  23. MGM4Life Says:

    Bench Johnson, go with J. Smith

  24. cmurda Says:

    Awful. Stupid shizz. Typical Bucs.

  25. JBuc Says:

    Prettying sure that should be a running into kicker call and not roughing.

  26. buc4lyfe Says:

    Stupid….. All you cats who were sniffing will gholston jock he’s sorry

  27. cmurda Says:

    Defense looked totally lost on 3rd down. Wow. No pressure and just confused.

  28. DB55 Says:

    Cutler baking a cake back there. If he was playing cod he’d get banned for camping. Where’s our front 4?

  29. Couch Fan Says:

    McCoy starting out hot today!

  30. BuccoDav Says:


  31. Soggy Says:

    Alright D..

  32. DB55 Says:

    Ooooooo there’s his one play today as it is the 1st qrt. Let’s see if he leaves early or is still there in the fourth
    With the game on the line.

  33. Bobby Says:

    Time for DB55 to talk about how McCoy didn’t really deserve that….

  34. DB55 Says:

    3 sacks in the first 5 mins I’m very impressed. Who are these dudes and what have they done to the bucanneers?

  35. Bobby Says:

    Do I know this guy or what??

  36. DallasBuc Says:

    Our Oline is so bad

  37. Destinjohnny Says:

    Evans was wide open on the int and on most plays so far

  38. DB55 Says:

    Lol. I’m not 100% ahole just 95%. Waiting for the fourth.

  39. Wesley Says:

    Cutler looks sickly

  40. Bobby Says:

    You’re just 110% wrong about GMC.

  41. DB55 Says:

    I’m smiling for the first time in 12 weeks. Yey!!

  42. Trubucfan22 Says:

    The defense has officially turned the corner. The improvement in undeniable.

  43. DB55 Says:

    #56 deserves the credit for the improvement

  44. Soggy Says:

    Nice but dont need the flags

  45. Mike J Says:

    Zone-blocking; they need to do that more in the run game.

  46. Bobby Says:

    Who are these guys?

  47. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Evans makes it look so easy. He should not be able to get this wide open against NFL CB’s, but he does it week in and week out. It’s early, but he has all the traits of being a special player.

    Penalty was dumb, but he’ll learn from it.

  48. Please Says:

    Good grief refs are pathetically flag-happy against the Bucs.

  49. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I seem to recall several games where McCoy not only had a sack in the fourth quarter, but on the final drive. Convenient how DB55 forgets that. (Off the top of my head, he did it against Miami last year, and against Carolina this year).

  50. Wesley Says:

    They need to hang onto McCown for next year, even if it is only as a backup role plus he’d be a good mentor for hopefully our future qb. All this assuming Glennon is not in our future.

  51. Jc tree Says:

    Sims looks good.

  52. Wesley Says:

    How do you drop that!!!!!!!

  53. DB55 Says:


    Time and place please. What game? Stop dude. Let me be before you raise my blood pressure. I’m happy right now.

  54. Uk_Buc Says:

    Brainless penalty by Evans

  55. Couch Fan Says:

    Evans is gonna smash Williams rookie TD receiving record

  56. Buc1987 Says:

    This just in.

    The Bucs defense has turned the corner my fellow Bucs fans.

    Cutler is in for a long rainy day!

    Go Bucs.

    I can feel a victory in my Bones!

    Now back to the game….

  57. Soggy Says:

    Needed that gift but dropped it, now we have bad field position..

  58. DB55 Says:

    Ja smith again w the tip

  59. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Against Miami on Monday night football. Had a sack on 2nd down. Specific enough for you? Against carolina, had a sack on third down.

  60. Wesley Says:

    Thanks for this field position Mike!

  61. DB55 Says:

    Miami? Last year? Lmao. Go away old man got no time for you today. Ty and good day sir.

  62. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I gave you one this year and one last year. You’re a tool anyway, so I don’t really care what you think. You shouldn’t be allowed to disgrace the greatest player in Buc history with your name.

  63. cmurda Says:

    McCown will sit back there for 5 minutes with nothing but open field ahead of him.

  64. Soggy Says:

    lucky he did not fumble

  65. DB55 Says:

    1 play in 12 weeks don’t cut it. Good day sir.

  66. Wesley Says:

    oh come on too freakin easy!!!

  67. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    7.5 sacks is more than one play.

  68. Soggy Says:

    j. smith can play

  69. TAC Says:

    Smith is really doing a great job, that was a nice play on that screen.

  70. DB55 Says:

    mama there goes that man again and again and again.

  71. DB55 Says:

    It’s a great day in Tampa bay. F* yea!!!!

  72. Mitch Says:

    DB55 stop trolling and enjoy the game man. Nothing we really say here matters. Joe is the only one who is smart enough to turn his passion for Tampa into his income- everything left heree on these boards mean Chit!!! Either support your team or GTFO.

  73. Patrick in VA Says:

    So, from now on Johnson only comes in to give smith a breather

  74. Buccfan37 Says:

    Bears suck, so does Cutler.

  75. DB55 Says:

    Really? I was cool til Hawaii wants to start his chit. Read up I’m rooting. I call it like I see it though boys. Idk what to tell you.


  76. DB55 Says:

    Throw the ball to ME13

  77. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    No, you call it how you want to see it. McCoy has a sack fumble, leading to our only points, and you have to make stupid comments. He leads the team in sacks, yet you downplay everything he does to feed your stupid agenda.

  78. DallasBuc Says:

    McStake is so so terrible

  79. cmurda Says:

    McCown is not good enough. Not even close. At best he’s a backup QB. You can see how every decision is crap. Misses a 5 yard throw to the RB that could have been a nice play. Has 2 receivers open deep on 3rd down and throws it nowhere near either.

  80. DB55 Says:

    I would have one play, ME13 long. When they stop that I’ll go ME13 long from the other side.

  81. Buccfan37 Says:

    MG would of hit those last 2 passes.

  82. DB55 Says:

    That defense though!!

  83. DB55 Says:

    Foster needs to step it up, everyone around him has improved in the last 2 weeks. Make a play big boy, it’s your turn.

  84. cmurda Says:

    Big props to our Defense and especially the D Line playing hard.

  85. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Thought another roughing the kicker call. Whew.

  86. DB55 Says:

    So those thigpen get cut at halftime? Put in Rainey as pr.

  87. cmurda Says:

    Hi Arroyo. Mike Evans. Thanks.

  88. cmurda Says:

    McCown blows and so does Arroyo’s playcalling. Mike Effing Evans.

  89. DB55 Says:

    For real!!!

  90. cmurda Says:

    Gorgeous 18 yard kick. Fire our special teams coach.

  91. Bucnut2 Says:

    The bucs suck

  92. Mike J Says:

    Have I mentioned lately that Koenen should be replaced??

  93. MadMax Says:

    McCown is the answer for next year? Really?

    We’re doomed if they think that!

  94. bucrightoff Says:

    Tim Wright has better stats than ASJ playing 60% fewer snaps. What a horrible trade that’s going to be in a few years.

  95. DI Says:

    Why are we paying Koenen again?

  96. Buccfan37 Says:

    Jenkins looked gimpy on that play. Put Glennon in for a chance to win.

  97. ElioT Says:

    This offense is a freaking joke. Bears are just trying to give us the game and we can’t take it!

    McCown is crapping the bed here.

    Another awesome 17 yard punt by Keonen.

    Go Sucs!

  98. johnnytheMOON Says:

    Mccown 1 good half in 6 games …boy what a spark .

  99. 911bucs Says:

    I wonder how Koenen ranks as a golfer on the team. Because he straight up shanked that one into the hazard.

  100. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Gorgeous 18 yard kick. Fire our special teams coach.”


    Don’t know if you can blame him for that, but he has been terrible. I’m pretty sure I could kick the ball further than 18 yards.

  101. Matt Says:

    Lol Mike Evans is wiiide open almost every play. McCown is too ampd up today he needs to calm down.

    Koenen must be the worst gd punter in the league.

  102. Bucnut2 Says:

    Two chitty teams

  103. Mike J Says:

    What have the Bucs lost in hidden yardage in the punting game in 2014?? About six miles??

  104. Soggy Says:


  105. DB55 Says:


  106. bucrightoff Says:

    Is Clausen gonna come in? Lol that’d be hilarious.

  107. Destinjohnny Says:

    We need to get more Irish guys!!!!

  108. DB55 Says:

    Wtf. Never seen that call

  109. Soggy Says:

    dont melt down OOOOOOO

  110. cmurda Says:

    Ok, nice play and a couple penalties and we are out of FG position. Come on.

  111. ElioT Says:

    What f**king garbage this offense is… Just pathetic.

  112. Mike J Says:

    Every time, change call, false start.

  113. cmurda Says:

    Mike Evans

  114. cmurda Says:

    Another penalty. This coaching staff should be embarrassed. Totally humiliating.

  115. Bucnut2 Says:

    The bucs are horrible

  116. Couch Fan Says:

    A screen pass that finally works and of course it comes back by penalty.

  117. JBuc Says:

    Great throw!

  118. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Sweet throw there McCown. Hats off. Finish this drive.

  119. Soggy Says:

    WOW OK and no flag

  120. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    That’s a throw Glennon can’t make. Not in a million years. And no, I’m not saying McCown is great.

  121. Couch Fan Says:

    McCown had a great pocket and no pressure, give Glennon that kind of time and he can make any throw. C’mon now. No need to bash anybody was a nice throw.

  122. cmurda Says:

    Theres McCown taking a sack when you absolutely cannot. 1 step forward 2 steps back for the backup QB.

  123. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Knew that was overthrown as he released it.

  124. ElioT Says:

    Hot garbage.

  125. Soggy Says:

    That was ugly mccown.. WE better draft a QB

  126. bucrightoff Says:

    Throwing in to quadruple coverage doesn’t usually work…

  127. Destinjohnny Says:

    In the end we need a qb

  128. Bucnut2 Says:

    Terrible play calling. How can you not throw it up on the outside

  129. cmurda Says:

    Evans saved a pick and 3 points for us on another terrible decision by McCwn.


    Might be true that Glennon doesn’t make that throw but it’s also true that Glennon makes better decisions. It’s the reason both of our QB’s are backup material but not starting material.

  130. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Jackson should fake a pulled muscle for a couple plays to get the double coverage off him. Then break for a deep one.

  131. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Not bashing Glennon, but simply stating that while McCown has played poorly, he can still do something that Glennon can’t (which is why he’s the starter). To be completely fair, there’s not too many QB’s that can make that throw. That had a lot of mustard on it.

  132. ElioT Says:

    A decent offense has these Bears down 27-0.

    That’s how far away this Bucs’ offense is…

    Defense balling out.

    Go Sucs.

  133. Soggy Says:

    Shutout at the half wow bucs..

  134. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol love hearing the home team getting boo’d off the field!!

  135. Bucnut2 Says:

    Coach fan, get off the mg bandwagon. He’s terrible

  136. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    “Might be true that Glennon doesn’t make that throw but it’s also true that Glennon makes better decisions. It’s the reason both of our QB’s are backup material but not starting material.”


    Couldn’t agree more.

  137. DB55 Says:

    Halftime adjustment. Throw the ball to ME13.

  138. Couch Fan Says:

    Bucnut2 Says:
    November 23rd, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    Coach fan, get off the mg bandwagon. He’s terrible

    He’s a Buc and he’s only into his 2nd year. Unlike you I dont pretend to be a talent scout but what I do know is that when given time in the pocket he’s pretty good. You may continue your hate now.

  139. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Great first half defensively, pretty crappy offensively. This game should be out of hand by now. We need to have a successful drive to start the second half, because one would believe the Bears offense is going to eventually wake up. You can already see they are starting to figure out how to protect better.

  140. WalkdaPlank Says:

    So we’re not trailing at the half huh? Glad to see the defense finally coming together, offense is a one trick pony. Lob it to Evans. Offensive line blows. But with a 10 point lead regardless. Go Bucs!

  141. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Destinjohnny Says
    “In the end we need a qb.”

    Which is why winning right now is such a bad idea. Never thought I would ever root to lose, but I’m convinced it is the best thing for the future of this team. Lose out this season, get high picks in every round of the draft.

    If Sims works out, trade Martin (who isn’t doing too bad today) for more picks. Stock up on picks. Trade Goldson. Trade our punter if possible.

    Lovie needs to be aggressive in the draft in 2015.

  142. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Couch Fan,

    Is there one QB in the NFL that isn’t pretty good with time in the pocket? Hell, Colt McCoy looks terrific with lots of time! That’s just not reality in the NFL.

  143. Buc1987 Says:

    This Bucs are going to come away with a win in this one.

    Are the Falclowns still losing?

  144. DB55 Says:

    Meanwhile in a parallel universe tim wright and Blount are on highlight reels. Stay tuned for Mark barron highlights.

  145. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    “…but it’s also true that Glennon makes better decisions.”


    Mike Glennon doesn’t make ANY decisions. He is too scared of losing his job. If the kid would actually step up like a real leader, he might earn some respect.

    But I have seen Glennon make as many bonehead throws as McCown. McCown is better simply because of his mobility. He buys time. He moves in the pocket better.

    Neither one of them can make the throws needed.

  146. Mike J Says:

    Still no bootlegs.

  147. bucrightoff Says:

    Browns should beat the Falcons. Just need to throw it to Josh a bit more.

  148. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Falcons ahead by 1 at the half.

  149. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Hawaiian Buc Says
    “Colt McCoy looks terrific with lots of time! That’s just not reality in the NFL.”

    It’s all about the offensive line.

  150. Dave Pear Says:

    New England has scored 3 TD’s…
    Tim Wright-2
    LeGarrette Blount-1
    Belicheat loves our ex-players.

  151. Couch Fan Says:

    Love how were winning for a change and some of you are using it as an excuse to pick apart the back up of the Career back up. Lol

  152. "that guy" Says:

    defense looks outstanding, despite david being out. getting rid of barron was the best thing for this secondary. i think well see another shot down the feild to evans to seal the win out.

  153. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Dave Pear

    Belicheat always gets more out of players than any other coach. Maybe its because he’s won so many rings and is proven. He’s got a knack though.

  154. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Couch Fan,

    Again, I’m not picking on the backup. I’m explaining why the backup isn’t playing even when the starter is playing poorly.

  155. DB55 Says:

    4 qrt game boys. 4 qrts.

  156. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Couch Fan

    Not picking apart…simply stating the truth and those in denial cannot handle it. 😉

  157. Mitch Says:

    Koenen is playing with a type of mono which saps all his strength… He had to stop working out too. The recovery period for it is 3 weeks – 3 months. That’s why he’s struggled all season long.

  158. DB55 Says:

    Lance Briggs REALLY likes Lovie.

  159. John Says:

    And in the nascar division it appears the Bucs are making a move…this is definitely going to be a race to the finish. It might be 4 wide in week 17.

  160. Please Says:

    This special teams digs such a hole… atrocious

  161. bucrightoff Says:

    Yeesh, could easily have 3 picks today.

  162. Couch Fan Says:

    C’mon with the stupid penalties!!

  163. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    McCown looks awful, only to be matched by our offensive line.

  164. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Michael Johnson still loafing.

  165. cmurda Says:

    This offense is painful to watch.

  166. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Need a turnover bad here. Not liking the way this game is going. Feels like momentum is swinging to them.

  167. Mike J Says:

    So Koenen had a relapse this week?

  168. bucrightoff Says:

    What a play by Bennett

  169. Jughead Says:

    ladies and gentlemen….Dane Fletcher

  170. cmurda Says:

    Goldson can hit, can’t defend.

  171. Destinjohnny Says:

    Josh is going to lose this game for us

  172. cmurda Says:

    Zero pressure on 3rd down. Zero. D Line.

  173. DB55 Says:

    That where gmc is supposed to make his money. Bend don’t break, make a stop.

  174. DB55 Says:



  175. ElioT Says:

    Love the “Crawk” trying to go up against Bennett. #FAIL lol

    You suck Dashon.

    Textbook Buc ball. Should have taken this game in the 1st half.

    The Bucs are a really bad football team.

    Go Sucs!

  176. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs get the kick in second half and stink up the place.

  177. DB55 Says:

    Keep #56 on the field, f* a rotation.

  178. cmurda Says:

    Absolute joke this offense is. We deserve better. 7 penalties today.

  179. unbelievable Says:

    WTF happened at half time? We just went completely f**ckin retarded?

  180. Buccfan37 Says:

    Put Glennon in at QB now. McCown will lose this game.

  181. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    My goodness our offensive line is terrible.

  182. BuccoDav Says:

    Looks like the offense of the beginning of the season… bad decisions, inaccurate throws, poor blocking and inopportune penalties.
    Why, at this point in the season is this $hit still going on???

  183. Patrick in VA Says:

    Josh is having real accuracy issues today. Not sure why the defense decided to quit after halftime.

  184. DB55 Says:

    Never go full retard. Too late for Hawaii but ….. Ooooooo burn. Lol

  185. ElioT Says:

    Unreal how many penalties this team has.

    Just so f**king bad.

    McCown is shaken.

  186. Bucnut2 Says:

    The bucs are not good

  187. BuccoDav Says:

    Great tackle jb27! Maybe they haven’t all quit!

  188. Hawaiian Buc Says:



  189. DB55 Says:

    Ja Smith

  190. bucrightoff Says:

    Falcons on their way to losing. A Baltimore win and lol only two back.

  191. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Oh look, another pass to Mike Evans. Didn’t see that coming.

  192. bucrightoff Says:


  193. BuccoDav Says:

    I can’t until the Bucs start winning more so we can get better announcers than Foxs’ 6th string!

  194. ElioT Says:

    Worlds worst offense.

    McClown is in full meltdown mode.

  195. Patrick in VA Says:

    We’ve gotta pull josh out of there. He’s just blowing it today

  196. Dave Pear Says:


  197. cmurda Says:

    Nice work McCown. You dont get an hour back there. You blow dude

  198. Soggy Says:

    McCown SUCKS

  199. Bucnut2 Says:

    We have to draft a qb

  200. MadMax Says:

    yup, time to stop watching…………….

  201. cmurda Says:

    Is Lovie still going to tell us how we are going to make the playoffs?

  202. Patrick in VA Says:

    Well that went south quickly

  203. ElioT Says:

    “The Crawk” holding on for dear life.

  204. 911bucs Says:

    Wide open check downs and you decide to run backwards to avoid a sack get him out of there

  205. The Real Drew Says:

    Great containment there Michael Johnson

  206. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Bears MVP: Josh McCown

  207. BucFan20 Says:

    Oh how great he is!

  208. Mike J Says:

    As Jed C. used to say, ”Pitiful. Just pitiful.”

  209. Bobby Says:

    There’s the Bucs I’ve grown to know this year. Theeyyyyre baaaaacccckk!

  210. Bucnut2 Says:

    Both of our abs are terrible

  211. Patrick in VA Says:

    I’m not sure if they remembered how to play or if we forgot.

  212. TAC Says:

    The shiniest turd QB is floating to the top of the bowl. McCown has disappeared today like the ghost turd QB he is.

  213. Bucnut2 Says:


  214. Dave Pear Says:

    McCown will have a reason to cry in the post game press conference today.
    Hell, I’m about to start crying.

  215. The Real Drew Says:

    Josh McCown starting to play like a dope acting like there will be no pursuit from behind

  216. Jerry Says:

    Oh well…this game is done.

    I’ve seen this movie before….all downhill from here.

  217. Soggy Says:

    Thats your boy LOVIE?

  218. Bobby Says:

    Yes..QB with first pick please. Someone who has a friggin brain.

  219. BucsFanFromSaintsLand Says:

    McCown is pure trash. Somebody please sit his a** on the side of the road

  220. Couch Fan Says:

    Glad I enjoyed the lead while it lasted.

  221. Kyle Says:

    Man McClown is killing us. The turnover is what it is but you have to have some pocket awareness. Before the end of the half this guy was gun shy he had two open receivers. Granted I’m watching on TV , we need a GD quarterback

  222. Bucnut2 Says:

    Lovie, are we still in the playoff hunt?

  223. passthebuc` Says:

    Mc Cowan has no composure. the least little adversary he folds like a 2 dollar suitcase in a wind storm.

  224. Couch Fan Says:

    Ok please take him out now. He is awfully inaccurate today.

  225. bucrightoff Says:

    That should be enough.

  226. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Ok, I’m ready for Glennon.

  227. Buc-O's 82 Says:

    Why in the hell are we playing Muscle Hamster, he’s flat, no ground game with him in there, we had a ground game with the others….

  228. Bobby Says:

    Get McCown out of there PPPLLLLLLLEEEAAASSSEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  229. cmurda Says:

    McCown LMAO. Um, time to put Glennon in there Lovie.

  230. ZBucs Says:

    Terrible QB play.

  231. Kyle Says:

    Please fire thigpen

  232. Dave Pear Says:

    Are you EFFing kidding me?

  233. Destinjohnny Says:

    Evans was so open on the play

  234. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Momentum completely flipped in like 2 drives. This offense is without a doubt the worst in the league. At least the Raiders have Derek Carr.If McClown is starter 2015 I will not watch the games.

  235. Mike10 Says:

    Soft Football, poor QB/OL play.. fluffy soft

  236. jj Says:

    I’m so glad McClown,gives us the best chance to win! Let me say that one more time best chance to win!!!!!

  237. Bucnut2 Says:

    Draft a qb

  238. passthebuc` Says:

    Lovie and McCowan deserve each other

  239. Kyle Says:

    Oh josh, please enjoy retirement next year when we draft your replacement

  240. The Real Drew Says:

    how can it be a horse collar tackle if you don’t tackle them

  241. bucrightoff Says:

    Such a waste of a solid defensive half too. 2 TD drives under 25 yards because of McCown.

  242. ZBucs Says:

    Career back up for a reason

  243. Bobby Says:

    I’ve never seen one guy lose so many games as McCown has for us this year. I’m not really disappointed. We need the high draft pick.

  244. buccadawg Says:

    This team just flat out suckd

  245. DB55 Says:


    You mean like throw multiple ints in multiple games? Lol

  246. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Yup, this game is over. Bucs blow another 2nd half lead, but this time it’s the offense that gave up the most points. Not much the defense can do when their backs are against the wall from the start.

  247. Kyle Says:

    I think olive has the d coming around. Losing mason foster really hurts

  248. tickrdr Says:

    McCown’s accuracy is reminiscent of Josh Freeman with the Vikings on MNF.


  249. Kyle Says:

    Meant lovie

  250. Soggy Says:

    21 unanswered Bears = Go Tankaneers

  251. holymoly Says:

    McClown is terrible ! Koenon sucks ! Why is Pigpen still returning kicks , he’s terrible !

  252. cmurda Says:

    My 13 year old just said for once in our franchise’s lifetime can we get a franchise Qb? I happen to agree with the kid.

  253. Bucnut2 Says:

    Defense is going to wear down

  254. DB55 Says:

    Where u at mccoy. Where u at?

  255. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Losing mason foster really hurts”


    Mason has been in the last 2 series. Making turnovers really hurts.

  256. Mike10 Says:

    Gonna lose my mind if I hear Lovie post-game talking about “almost there and seeing improvements”

  257. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Are you f-ing kidding me? You’re a joke.

  258. PhillyBuc Says:

    Please cut Michael Johnson today….please! He runs around the field like a 7 year old soccer player.

  259. Mdc1965 Says:

    Is any Bucs fan surprised?

  260. ElioT Says:

    Gotta put Glennon in. McClown has nothing here, he’s f*cking shattered.

    Unfathomable how bad this team is.

    Quintessential Bucs implosion.

    Go Sucs!

  261. Bobby Says:


  262. Kyle Says:

    This is not on the defense. Mcclowns terrible play combined with an inept offensive line performance. Killed us

  263. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Bucs could’ve won this division by a mile with just a solid QB. O-line is so freaking terrible. But we would’ve at least had 2 or 3 more wins on this board if McClown hadn’t thrown 4 picks a f***ing game. I was agaibst picking Johnny Clipboard but now wish we had.

  264. DallasBuc Says:

    LovieDovie&Co will ink McCown to a 5yr deal making him the highest paid QB in the league before they show up to review game tape on Tuesday!

  265. Ray Rice Says:

    Again. Aunt Geraldine disappears after making 1 play in the first quarter. McCown back to earth. $hit!!!!

  266. Kyle Says:

    Thanks Hawaiian buc I thought I saw Dane fletcher in didn’t realize foster came back

  267. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Don’t worry fellas, “football starts in November”.

    So we’re only, what, 1-3?

  268. Fishfries Says:

    Mccown’s trash!

  269. Jughead Says:

    You guys going to blame that one on McCown?

  270. buccadawg Says:

    I give

  271. Kyle Says:

    @ Hawaiian buc, I probably need coffee after this game because the crown royal is really smooth

  272. bucrightoff Says:

    Gonna be tough to overturn. Very close.

  273. Couch Fan Says:

    And again we just continue to screw ourselves. Hope he’s down.

  274. cmurda Says:

    Wow. You too VJax? This team sucks.

  275. Dave Pear Says:

    He was down.

  276. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    He’s disappeared because the offense keeps turning it over.

  277. P'cola Buc Says:

    Please please please….Mariota or Winston in the 2015 draft

  278. Kyle Says:

    He’s fuc..king down

  279. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    In Chicago, we’re not getting the call.

  280. Jughead Says:

    That was terrible

  281. bucrightoff Says:

    Yup, too close to get that call.

  282. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Awesome.

  283. Jughead Says:

    his elbow was clearly on the ground

  284. Dave Pear Says:

    Bad call.

  285. Jerry Says:

    Why can’t this team hold on to the ball?

    Penalties and turnovers, that’s all this stupid team is good for.

  286. Patrick in VA Says:

    So much for video review being worth a damn

  287. cmurda Says:

    Banks go back 15 yards and pick up your jockstrap.

  288. BucPuck Says:

    We are a bunch of motherf***ing losers. LOSERS!

  289. Kyle Says:

    Walt Coleman is a clueless idgit

  290. Jughead Says:

    It’s funny, even Perriera said he was down, and he even said they would blow the call and they did!!!!! Why is he not in NY?

  291. Ray Rice Says:


  292. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Wow. Bucs can’t even catch a break on a reviewed play.

    Well, that’s enough disappointment for one day. Have a good one fellow Bucs fans.

  293. Matt B Says:

    Even Brandon Marshall knew he was down.

  294. Kyle Says:

    Come on ray don’t get angry. Hate to see you smack yo bit..ch around

  295. Patrick in VA Says:

    Football might start in November but when can we expect to see good football?

  296. Jerry Says:

    You can have Mariota or Winston… but it won’t matter. No one can hold on to the ball. The offensive line stinks. And we get 10+ penalties a game.

  297. Bucnut2 Says:

    We’re done. We need to lose the rest and draft a qb

  298. Matts17 Says:

    Simply doing what bad teams do.

  299. Kyle Says:

    Sorry that was poor taste

  300. Mdc1965 Says:

    Hey, if Atlanta loses and NO loses and Carolina……. Ah who the f am kidding the Bucs SUCK! Thank you Glazer boys!

  301. Mike10 Says:

    At what point is someone going to pull this team aside and spark a fire under their asses – mccoy, mccown?! anyone?!

  302. DB55 Says:


    It takes time. Lol

  303. Soggy Says:

    after that bad call it’s only fitting that the bears go 3 and out..

  304. P'cola Buc Says:

    Yes football does start in November…..November 2015!

  305. Kingpin1 Says:

    Have it on DVR paused showing forearm and elbow down while control of ball sitting here with 3 bear fan and we all agree terrible call. Why?? How??

  306. Ray Rice Says:


    I can tell you what poor taste is. Poor taste is watching this team implode. Watching this BULL$HIT A$$ playcalling on both sides. BULL$HIT A$$ run game. BULL$HIT A$$ O-Line can’t block.

  307. CJO Says:

    How is it that announcers, fans, an ex NFL official see it one way but the replay official sees it opposite…

  308. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs remembered who they are in the 2nd half. Back into the form of losers.

  309. Kyle Says:

    I love the wdae recording of Gerald McCoy when we were like 1 and 7 or whatever and he says ” if we win our last 8 games we’ll be 8-8

  310. Kyle Says:

    That shiz is funny

  311. bucrightoff Says:

    McCown could easily have 6 turnovers by now. Jesus.

  312. Kyle Says:

    Nothing but love for you ray rice #itsabucslife

  313. DallasBuc Says:

    You know who should lose their job faster than Josh McStake?…LovieDovie because he hired this absolute disaster. Damn near criminal. The media, present company included deserves equal blame.

  314. DB55 Says:

    We got a game on channel 10

  315. Kyle Says:

    The funniest thing I have seen this year was the whole McClown spelling. I saw it on Jbf.com. After week 2 or something and laughed my ass off

  316. DB55 Says:


    Stay tuned

  317. C. Alaka Says:

    Our D has played great today!…they can’t put together a drive…thank McCown for this lost!

  318. GriffinsPassant Says:

    is there any type of weather this team can perform?
    They can’t play in the rain. They can’t play in a controlled environment. They can’t play in the heat. What is the essence of this team? 10 games in and you’re not seeing an inkling of team identity. They appear to be a pinball bouncing from one hope to the next.

  319. DB55 Says:

    1 post in 5 mins during a game? You guys are like mccoy u disappear in the 4th.

  320. Phred Says:

    Defense is playing decent today. McCown is doing a terrific Trent Dilfer imitation: bad decisions & poor throws. This loss will be his fault.

  321. Jughead Says:

    why will he not throw the ball away?

  322. Dave Pear Says:

    No sense of urgency.
    That is just bad coaching.

  323. Jughead Says:

    no roughing the QB on that?

  324. DallasBuc Says:

    When you intentionally start Josh McCown you are saying that you are not trying to win football games

  325. DB55 Says:

    Did he just say a 3tech had a sack in the 4th? Impossible I think that’s against the rules or something.

  326. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    That was a perfect throw by Mccown. doesn’t happen too often, got to take advantage

  327. Matt B Says:

    Nice drop Louis Murphy.

  328. Jughead Says:

    Seriously, why is everyone blaming the coaching for this? Are the coaches throwing INT’s, fumbling the ball, and drawing penalties?

  329. jj Says:

    McClown,it’s your turn to walk the PLANK.

  330. DB55 Says:

    Matt Bryant with the game winner.

  331. Rrsrq Says:

    What the heck is going on out there…

  332. DB55 Says:


    I c what u did there

  333. Architek Says:

    I still say “Give up the cookie for Jameis the Rookie”!!!!!

  334. Jughead Says:

    so we have a chance…lol

  335. Gt40bear Says:

    WTF? I go into Walmart for literally 10 items with the Bucs leading 10-0 I come out and they are trailing 21-10? That’s my lovable losers!

  336. Architek Says:

    There is no point in winning this game imo – OL sucks and QB is a rhetorical backup that do backup things.

    Oh and Glennon is too so that translates to needing a Qb in the 1st round…

  337. Jughead Says:

    All I have to say is, don’t score too quickly

  338. bucrightoff Says:

    Falcons about to go down.

  339. jo_mama Says:

    Brian Hoyer to tampa next year. That guy is Clutch.

  340. Soggy Says:

    sloppy sh!t here

  341. bucrightoff Says:

    lol didn’t get it. McCown is awful.

  342. Jughead Says:

    That line judge is terrible

  343. DB55 Says:


  344. Gt40bear Says:

    NFL SUCKS! Where the F is the defenseless receiver call there? Wish somebody would gut Goodell AND his refs like a fish!

  345. Couch Fan Says:

    4th and a half yard and we dont even get close. Just pathetic

  346. ElioT Says:

    Can’t even get a yard. Take away Evans and this offense has NOTHING!

    Sucs blow!

  347. cmurda Says:

    Need Qb and Off Coord next year.

  348. lurker Says:


    i don’t know how i feel about this game…

  349. Matt B Says:

    McCown’s an F’n idiot! Stick the damn ball out. Stretch u sadsack.

  350. Rrsrq Says:

    I’m convinced, you only do that kind of play calling when trying to lose

  351. MadMax Says:

    game over….and im just fine with the loss for a high pick in the draft….for a QB

  352. passthebuc` Says:

    the next comment from lovie will be

    we are only 2 games out of first

  353. Luther Says:

    Well…we are on track to draft Mariota because I don’t see another win in our future.

  354. jo_mama Says:

    Jughead Says:
    November 23rd, 2014 at 5:01 pm
    Seriously, why is everyone blaming the coaching for this? Are the coaches throwing INT’s, fumbling the ball, and drawing penalties?

    No the coaches chose all these bad players.
    The Coaches have a history of failure.
    The coaches traded away talent that they could not coach.
    The coaches put the second best QB on the field.

  355. lurker Says:

    i refrain from posting to try and enjoy the game, but…

  356. DallasBuc Says:

    McCown is legit sht show. Freeman is by far a better QB. Rah and Schiano are by far better coaches. Oh and Dominik is perfectly superior to lapdog Licht. Feels effin terrific

  357. mark2001 Says:

    Lovie looked like a senile old idiot.

  358. Jughead Says:

    Thanks Lovie, we are going to lose a timeout now….

  359. bucrightoff Says:

    And this is why Lovie sucks. This challenge won’t work, the timeout is so much more valuable right now. Terrible.

  360. Couch Fan Says:

    Glennon’s neck could of got that 1st down alone!

  361. TAC Says:

    wasted challenge, may not matter today, but that type of garbage will kill them later.

  362. Buc Rogers Says:


  363. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Stupid challenge. Lost a Timeout

  364. Rrsrq Says:

    Dumb challenge when you still had two time outs left.

  365. Gt40bear Says:

    Not blaming loss on refs or NFL in previous post ’cause this game is a microcosm of why our Bucs are LOSERS! 4 turnovers, penalties, questionable play calling, and so on and so on! However, no one will be able to convince me that a anti-Tampa Bay bias doesn’t exist and always has!

  366. jo_mama Says:

    Lovie’s strongest coaching play of the year. Throw a Red Flag on a play that everyone knew was short.

  367. lurker Says:

    “The coaches put the second best QB on the field.”

    i say the third or fourth best qb on the field behind the 2 on the bears’ side…lol

  368. passthebuc` Says:

    you cannot get gold from a sow’s ear

  369. BucPuck Says:

    Embarrassing. Bad decision Lovie!

  370. Back up kicker Says:

    Back on track for our shinny new quarterback.

  371. Mdc1965 Says:

    Big Dog….Still think McCown should start?????
    I am not a Glennon fan, but he should start the rest of he season.

  372. RastaMon Says:

    This loss is 100% on McClown….high..low…left..right…throw here..no throw there….This loss is 100% on McClown….

  373. Andrew 1 Says:

    need a QB

  374. DB55 Says:


    We still have 30 sec to hear his name. Whaka whaka whaka

  375. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    If he didn’t waste that challenge, we would be getting the ball back with just under a minute remaining.

  376. D-Rome Says:

    I don’t want to hear any more about trying to win the division. Cut your losses with McCown and finish the season with Glennon. There was never any point putting McCown back in. His experience behind center is irrelevant now.

  377. lurker Says:

    then you haven’t been watchin the whole game rastamon

  378. passthebuc` Says:

    enough mistakes to go around

    starting with the Glazers hiring of Lovie.

    the 2nd was lovie’s assistants.

    the next was the off season acquisitions

    Then the coaching itself

    the motivation

    the play calling

    and, and, and, and, and………………………………..

  379. Gt40bear Says:

    In the spirt of the season, I’m thankful for the Bucs for going after that top 5 pick in the draft!

  380. Steveo Says:

    McCoy has disappeared in this game I haven’t seen him at all. McClown crying because he sucks so bad. Garbage just turrible, turrible I tell ya!!! This team is soft as it’s leader Gerald McCoy he’s soft as cookie dough that’s been sitting in the sun!!!!

  381. DB55 Says:

    Lets go joe. Let’s get it going time to discuss this game. It’s gonna be a fun week. Lol

  382. richardtyson Says:

    @ Dallasbuc

    You are a freaking fool. The owners bring in a winning coach to a losing program with hardly any talent and you think free agency is like a bandaid don’t you. Put it on and it’s all better. You must want a magician for a coach, just reach into the hat and pull a starting caliber QB out of it. Please.

  383. D-Rome Says:

    Big Dog….Still think McCown should start?????

    Of course he does. Don’t you know it’s against the rules for him to admit being wrong?

  384. Rrsrq Says:

    Jameis/Mariotta watch in full effect

  385. Matt B Says:

    This is easily the most frustrating Bucs team of all time.

  386. BucFan20 Says:

    And thanks for watching the Josh McFreeman Show!!

  387. lurker Says:

    i just want to know if the bucs are trying to lose?

  388. jo_mama Says:

    fire lovie

  389. Gt40bear Says:

    The Bears are thankful for the Bucs GIVING them a win even though they looked like crap!

  390. Kevin Says:

    Turns out we were who we thought we were! LMAO!
