Dixie Chicks at Bucs, Open Thread

November 9th, 2014

Buccaneers cheerleader

Good afternoon from cloudy and a bit chilly Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway, where two rotten teams will battle for the basement of the NFC South, the Dixie Chicks and the Bucs. Lots of good seats are still available if you want to enjoy this game in person.

Joe is fighting depression. Joe is depressed because the Bucs are so, so bad and Lovie is playing games with fans. It’s a sad scene. Oh, in case you still haven’t heard, defensive end Michael Johnson is inactive today. As Andrew Dice Clay would say, “It’s because he’s been inactive all year — OH!”

Bang your keyboard here to get all your frustration out of your bodies. As always, we encourage you to e-mail URLs of illegal video streams among yourselves but posting them here can and will get you banned. Go Bucs!

    Get out of the Press booth….and chat up…spend todays game in the stadium…listen to the fans that are really experiencing the game..,

  2. Jeff Says:

    Bucs win today. 23-20. McClown throws 2 picks and 2 td’s and Duemig creams hit pants.

  3. SteveK Says:

    Can we win a home game? I expect Lovie’s hand chosen QB to lead us to victory today. If we get our asses kicked (like last time) then you will hear the calls for Lovie’s head, as he’s more concerned about winnng today than playing Glennon to see what the future at QB could be? Lovie better be right, re-inserting McCown better go well or the hot seat will be fully engaged.

  4. MaHaBoNe.D Buc Says:

    one step closer to a better pick in the draft next year…… Must be awesome to have that much job security that Lovie enjoys.

  5. Jeff Says:

    SteveK = spot on. Selfish move by Lovie. He has no concern for the future. He still thinks they are in the playoff hunt. He’s an idiot with a 5 year contract.

  6. Buccfan37 Says:

    Go Bucs! Show us what you got!

  7. lightningbuc Says:

    Trifecta…the big Oaf David Diehl three weeks in a row.

  8. Buc1987ForJameis Says:

    Look at those stands….I have more groceries in my cupboards we have Bucs fans.

    Didn’t Lovie once cut McCown in Chicago?

    Go Bucs make a 6 game run at this thing and go 7-9 to close out the season (not gonna happen), but I STILL hope it does. I can’t bring myself to not root for them to win though.

    I don’t know about next week though… I might be a little wobbly on my support for a win by then.

    For this game though GO BUCS stop sucking!

  9. biggun Says:

    ^^^^ yeah

  10. DB55 Says:

    I’m a starting mccown on my fantasy team. LOL, ROTF
    Seriously though I am.

  11. DB55 Says:

    Oh boy the was ugly.

  12. lightningbuc Says:

    A lot of people went to the game today disguised as an empty seat.

  13. DB55 Says:



  14. Buckin' Round Says:

    That’s easily complete

  15. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ol mcCown being mccown

  16. Soggy Says:

    wow the jackson catch he landed hard..

  17. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Mccown already has more third down conversions than Glennon has had in any of his games.

  18. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Sims sighting!

  19. lurker Says:

    wow…team is playin hard for mccown.

    pinocchio/ the mirage, gets no respect.

  20. Jughead Says:

    that was something Glennon is incapable of

  21. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Wow it’s amazing seeing a qb escape a sack.

  22. lurker Says:

    elusiveness helps with this oline.

  23. mixxx31 Says:

    Okay, we are playing inspired

  24. lurker Says:

    rainey >>> martin

  25. Trubucfan22 Says:

    As Rainey runs for -5 yards…

  26. TAC Says:

    what a stupid f’n play…

  27. ElioT Says:

    Wtf was that? Gimmick wildcat and they hold. Smfh!

  28. lightningbuc Says:


  29. lurker Says:

    dang, 2nd and 25

  30. Jughead Says:

    play calling is terrible

  31. mixxx31 Says:

    C’mon now, don’t kill ourselves

  32. Jughead Says:

    Cousins is going to get McCown killed

  33. Buxfan Says:

    Why they can not block for McCown?

  34. lurker Says:

    8/12 fg?!?

    murray sucks

  35. ElioT Says:

    Beautiful 8:30 drive….

    For 3pts!

    Go Sucs!

  36. Buxfan Says:

    Please a LT then a future QB.

  37. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Hey Mccown is doing a good despite the o line letting a free rusher through every play.

    Mccown 3-4 on third down.

    Glennon could only wish to have 3 third down conversions in an entire game.

  38. SteveK Says:

    Go Sucs!

    Defense is finna give up that booty?

  39. mixxx31 Says:

    C’mon Defense, stand tall!!!

  40. Buckin' Round Says:

    Murray is only 8/12 because he’s had 2 or 3 blocked. He’s pretty good, and has a big leg. Plus, he’s a rookie. Be supportive.

  41. ElioT Says:

    The “Crawk” made a tackle!

  42. Buxfan Says:

    Draft a LT and then draft a future QB

  43. Skyline Crew Says:

    Different QB same results.

  44. ElioT Says:

    Wide open! Got lucky

  45. lightningbuc Says:

    Is the entire defensive line inactive today?

  46. ElioT Says:

    How is bowers allowed on the field?

  47. MaHaBoNe.D Buc Says:

    the whole team is a joke…

  48. Bucnut2 Says:

    We are bad

  49. "TheKevin" Says:

    Man our defense is so bad we better get a qb in the draft lol.

  50. Mike10 Says:

    Cannot wait for the day I read on this website: Leonard Johnson walks the plank

  51. lightningbuc Says:

    This d line is a joke.

  52. Soggy Says:

    shoot thy self in thy foot D

  53. MGM4Life Says:

    So glad I stayed home to watch this rather than pay…at least i can leave the room when it gets beyond ugly.

  54. King Diamond Says:

    Just curious? Have we actually had a penalty free drive this season?

  55. lurker Says:

    yes, we need a qb first! we have spent high draft picks and $$$ on both lines already. need to put high draft pick into qb.

  56. lurker Says:

    need a cure to what ails your team? play the bucs!

  57. richardtyson Says:

    A good QB can make up for a bad defense by keeping the score close. Our offense only could get 3 the first drive and now it’s 7-3.

  58. bucrightoff Says:

    Defense or butter, not too sure which is softer.

  59. King Diamond Says:

    How can you have defensive off sides in the red zone?

  60. MGM4Life Says:

    They Just took a camera around the Bucs bench and I swear I thought I saw Bowers pull some fries out of a Mcdonalds bag and is eating them. If they zoom in on the bench look for a Mcdonalds bag. Bowers had it last.

  61. Bucnut2 Says:

    I agree we need a qb

  62. Bucnut2 Says:

    What I don’t like about McCown is that he seldom goes downfield. Let’s see if he does today

  63. Mike10 Says:

    I’m worried a high pick on a QB in this draft would be a waste, and we’ll be sitting just like the Jets, Dolphins, and Bills in 2 years

  64. MaHaBoNe.D Buc Says:

    at least on Saturdays i can choose which game i want to watch. This Sucks!

  65. King Diamond Says:

    First time I can remember the defense worse than the offense.

  66. Soggy Says:

    wow cullen giving some real sh!t to the dline

  67. RastaMon Says:

    I agree we need everything…It is so confusing as to where to start…

  68. Shane Marco Says:

    How is it that the Glazers have not completely gutted the scouting department, both pro and college. We have very minimal talent on either line defense or offense.

  69. ElioT Says:

    Fans in attendance should get a free sure vile of heroin to watch this garbage.

    Go Sucs!

  70. Wesley Says:

    someone threw a flag for a reason WTF!!!

  71. Jughead Says:

    what a turdly punt

  72. The Buc Realist Says:

    I am glad that Lovie fixed that QB problem!!!

  73. lurch Says:

    The entire team is garbage. Here’s to the number one pick next year.

  74. lightningbuc Says:

    Lovie’s even ruined a punter!

  75. mixxx31 Says:

    Way to stone his ass Mason

  76. Wesley Says:

    flag on every freakin play!!!!!!!!!!!

  77. Jughead Says:

    this is unreal

  78. mixxx31 Says:

    #32 rolled up like a boss

  79. lurker Says:

    wow, go jets. 17-0 vs steelers.

  80. Soggy Says:

    The d act like they don’t know the rules

  81. mixxx31 Says:


  82. ElioT Says:

    Nice jam 9 yards down the field Crezdon!

  83. lightningbuc Says:

    This isn’t even worth commenting on anymore. I’m so bored.

  84. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Penalties killing us

  85. RastaMon Says:

    Actually…I’ve searching and reading internet Obituaries from accomplished people….for inspiration

  86. RealityCheck Says:

    Reporting live from the game, the temperature outside is pleasant. That is all.

  87. Shane Marco Says:

    This team is once again the laughing stock of the leauge. The only reason to watch this team is if you feel like spending one of your days off being pissed.

  88. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Our defense keeps killing themselves. This is stupid.

  89. Celly Says:

    A SACK!!!!!

  90. Jeff Says:

    The coaching is so poor. Teams easily out scheme him week to week.

  91. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Bucs D looks great on first two downs. Too bad they’re not in the CFL

  92. Trubucfan22 Says:


  93. bucs4lyfe Says:


    Your obviously with the slow crowd, the ones that didn’t see how sorry Glennon is. Lovie doesn’t care what you think, if mccown is back then it means lovie has seen enough and so had everyone else with common and and eyesight

  94. bucrightoff Says:

    Wow the only way this D can stop Atlanta is when they stop themselves. Horrible 3rd and 20 coverage again and only the drop saves it.

  95. lurker Says:

    that is why both these teams are bad! lmfao

  96. "TheKevin" Says:

    This team is 2 years away from even thinking of a franchise quarterback.

  97. Soggy Says:

    wow thanks hester

  98. lightningbuc Says:

    Butler taunting Hester? Stupid.

  99. Capt.Tim Says:

    McCown looking good
    Godells NFL- a penalty after every play.
    Refs decide the game

    “They left Hester uncovered!!”
    That’s cause he can’t catch

  100. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Hey defense got a stop! Err.. I mean didn’t get a penalty!

  101. Shane Marco Says:

    And we did everything we could to let them score a touchdown on 3rd and goal from the freakin 20.

  102. Bucnut2 Says:

    Lovie must have begged Hester not to kill us again. How does anyone get that wide open?

  103. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Hester got scuuuuured

  104. ManzielMadness Says:

    Missing most of game cause of work but why aren’t we running it more??

  105. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Let’s go Mccown! Come on o line lets block someone for once! Mike Evans touch down. Calling it.

  106. Trubucfan22 Says:

    We don’t run because rainey and this o line suck. We have better chance just throwing the ball wih mccown

  107. bucrightoff Says:

    Lol VJax shoves the DB and no call

  108. Capt.Tim Says:

    You are right.
    Let McCown run the team for a couple years- til we rebuild it
    A couple drafts by Lovie- we may have something to work with

  109. Bucnut2 Says:

    McCown doesn’t throw deep well

  110. Mike10 Says:

    Is Mike Evans playing?

  111. "TheKevin" Says:

    ASJ wide open u dear earth for the first down

  112. "TheKevin" Says:


  113. Soggy Says:

    grandma must be punting

  114. bucrightoff Says:

    Another all 3 phases being awful game today it seems. Team is very, very bad.

  115. Buckin' Round Says:

    Alright, I’ll say it. We need a new punter. We are paying Koenen way too much money to be punting the way he has this year. He’s gotta go.

  116. Bucnut2 Says:

    23 yard punt, wow these guys are good

  117. Shane Marco Says:

    3rd and 2 lets throw a low percentage 15 yard pass….decisions that lead to a 1-8 record.

  118. 911bucs Says:

    Another nice punt

  119. lightningbuc Says:

    Our special teams is a joke – and they weren’t with Schiano. HMMM!

  120. lightningbuc Says:

    Don’t blame Koenen – he has been instructed to not punt for distance, but to punt it high for coverage. Lovie has ruined him.

  121. cmurda Says:

    Hi Bucs. Get an offensive coordinator. A real one dipsticks. This is just hysterically bad. Nice punt by the way. What are we paying that guy. 50 million? Give him a raise

  122. RastaMon Says:

    McClown is 35 years old…stiff…moves like a stiff…is stiff…The GBoyz otta make L&L suit up and go on the field the 2nd half….

  123. k1ngadroc Says:

    i’m positive I can punt better than Koenen hashtagitsabucslife

  124. MGM4Life Says:

    TV guy just panned the Bucs bench and there was Bowers again, appeared to be eating chicken mcnuggets…eating them like popcorn. Even tossed one up high and caught it in his mouth like a sea lion.

  125. lurker Says:

    i don’t understand wtf happened to koenen.

  126. Dave Pear Says:

    It’s like a Bigfoot sighting.
    Bucs defense with a 3 and out.

  127. Soggy Says:

    can we get a flag for running into our own fair catch guy?

  128. Shane Marco Says:

    Lets pile on the punter…he should be trying to out kick his coverage and letting Hester try to run it back on us…again..geniuses.

  129. Aubpierce Says:

    Overall a very bad football team.

  130. PhillyBuc Says:

    I thought the Falcons D has been giving up over 400 yds per game? They look like the ‘steel curtain’ against us

  131. Buc1987 Says:

    No really guys….we’re getting better.

  132. Buc1987 Says:

    Guess what? I lied.

  133. lightningbuc Says:

    Joe’s “manbeast” and man crush up to his old tricks!

  134. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Time to run the wild cat.

  135. k1ngadroc Says:

    @Shane Marco or just kick it out of the endzone and gain 15 yards… genius

  136. lurker Says:

    nice tight throws

  137. mixxx31 Says:

    It’s this really the sane QB from the first three games?

  138. lurker Says:

    nice pushoff evans

  139. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Mccown is the man!

  140. lightningbuc Says:

    Very nice drive McCown. Impressive!

  141. Celly Says:

    It sure is nice to see some scrambling ability from the QB position.

  142. Bangkok Buc Says:

    While McCown is not the QB of our future, I don’t want to hear any more about Glennon. Lovie made the right choice in the starter. That is unless we’re tanking for top 3 pick

  143. King Diamond Says:

    Hellllll yeahhhh evans

  144. Soggy Says:

    nice evans careful on the pushoffs though

  145. lurker Says:

    mccown throwin some nice passes.

  146. bucrightoff Says:

    Special teams is absolutely atrocious.

  147. Bucnut2 Says:

    Nice special teams

  148. lightningbuc Says:

    Special teams SUCK!

  149. Wesley Says:

    Gotta admit McCown looks decent.

  150. Jughead Says:

    I’m wondering how many sacks Glennon would have taken by now…….

  151. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Just look at third down conversion rates between mccowns starts and Glennons starts. It basically tells the entire story.

  152. mixxx31 Says:

    I’m not saying he’s lighting it up, but at least he isn’t fu#%ing it up.

  153. Buxfan Says:

    Give the man some protection and lets see what happens. To the fairness of McCown, he has never gotten the protection the same as Glennon. NO QB can throw a ball after setting up to pass. Draft a QB will not change the protection problems we have.

  154. buc4lyfe Says:

    That’s what it’s supposed to look like, Glennon is done the bucs are drafting a quarterback never year and Glennon will remain the backup until there’s an offer for him or his contact expires, who’s foolish enough to think his trade value is high

  155. "TheKevin" Says:

    All you idiots screaming for a qb for first pick. Pretty sure Matt Ryan is a franchise qb and they’re not winning either.

    What does that tell you morons?

    Crickets crickets!!!!!

  156. King Diamond Says:

    JC bucs are gonna give up points now

  157. Destinjohnny Says:

    Foster sucks

  158. Wesley Says:

    it’s sooooo easy to get into field goal range against this team!!

  159. DooshLaRue Says:

    The Hawk SUCKS!

  160. Celly Says:

    “TheKevin” Says:
    November 9th, 2014 at 3:28 pm

    What does that tell you morons?

    Crickets crickets!!!!!

    you’re not really serious, are you?

  161. King Diamond Says:

    Why the f—k do they continue to punt @ Hester.

  162. "TheKevin" Says:

    ^^^^^^and here’s one of the idiots now

  163. lurker Says:

    lmfao smh

  164. Couch Fan Says:

    This team is so depressing.

  165. bucrightoff Says:

    Offense has been good enough, defense and special teams again with the letdowns. Should be 17-10 if not for a heinous drop by Hester.

  166. lurker Says:

    kevin, you aint the anything except, the moron.

    your opinion sucks

  167. Buc1987ForJameis Says:

    Lovie Smith is the real idiot….2 weeks in a row he tries to ice a kicker in the first half of a game…like it’s some game winning kick or something….then they both miss…only to hit the next one.

    What a bafoon!

  168. Wesley Says:

    Should be tied at the half, that was ridiculous letting them get into field goal range with 32 seconds left. We cannot stop teams from constantly doing this.

  169. bucrightoff Says:

    Atlanta could be only 1 game back too with the Saints losing. This division is absolute trash.

  170. Buxfan Says:


    I’m with you. Unless we can draft a QB that can block and throw at the same time, it’ll be STUPID to draft a QB behind this line.

  171. lurker Says:

    “Should be 17-10 if not for a heinous drop by Hester.”

    that would be 20-10, then.

  172. lurker Says:

    oops, nevermind

  173. Mike10 Says:

    Painful to watch how far this team has fallen.. from last year

  174. buc4lyfe Says:

    Is it me or are most if not all of the quarterbacks drafted the same year as Glennon on the bench

  175. lurker Says:

    lovie has his line!

    he transformed the offensive line and defensive line. WE NEED A QB with the first pick. understand?

  176. RastaMon Says:


  177. Buxfan Says:

    I would draft a QB in the first round if the NFL come up with the rule of no touching of the QB.

  178. Buc1987ForJameis Says:

    Koenan is in on the tank job. They’ll make this game look good for us though.

    They really do want to win, you can just tell. (sarcasm)

    This is evaluation time. 8 more games until the draft.

    I’m thinking about a name change though. Perhaps 87ForJameisOrMariota!

  179. RastaMon Says:

    Atlanta is not going to let this score last long….Team Pride

  180. mixxx31 Says:


  181. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Mccown is proving that despite bad pass blocking, a qb can still make plays. Mariota and Winston can avoid pass rushers and make plays with their legs. A well rounded qb can avoid the rush and make plays out of nothing. Something Glennon can not do. And is something the 2 top rookie prospects can do.

  182. Brandon Says:

    urker Says:
    November 9th, 2014 at 3:35 pm
    “Should be 17-10 if not for a heinous drop by Hester.”

    that would be 20-10, then-


    So they get credit for 10 points on that drive? Pretty sure they can’t kick that FG if Hester catches the pass.

  183. bucrightoff Says:

    lurker Says:
    November 9th, 2014 at 3:35 pm
    “Should be 17-10 if not for a heinous drop by Hester.”

    that would be 20-10, then.

    They still got the FG so it’s only 4 more points.

  184. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Why do people hate koenen so much? He’s just doing what he’s told. Lunt short so they can’t get a return on us. Lovie has no trust in our coverage teams so he has koenen punt it short so they can’t return it. It makes the punt -0 yards shorter but it keeps them from returning it. Which breaks it about even, after return yards are accounted for.

  185. Buc1987ForJameis Says:

    The line can be fixed next season in the first then…if 2 franchise quarterbacks are out there in the draft. There’s no need to pass up the chance and HOPE we get that shot again at another one down the line…

    You have to be drafting high to get one. So maybe we suck next year too if we pass on on O-lineman…but that can work either way if we take a rookie QB and not the lineman…either way O line can be addressed in later rounds and in the 2016 draft. Hopefully we are not drafting that high next season.

  186. Touch_Down_Tampa_Bay Says:

    Nice HIGH TD pass today. No pass hitting the DB in the back.
    Nice 1st down pick up by McCown today too.

    Glennon take note…

  187. buc4lyfe Says:

    @TheKevin @Buxfan

    Are you two serious? Do you know anything at all about football. Why do you think there’s an offseason in football, could it have something to do with upgrading the roster before each season? Matt Ryan has a horrible line just like us but the fans don’t complain because he’s a real franchise quarterback and they are losing because they’re defense sucks, we have more sacks than them

    Painful to watch how far this team has fallen.. from last year

    Team started 0-8 last season and wasn’t competitive in the majority of them. This team has had every game decided by the final drive except for two games. I’m pretty sure you’re and idiot if you truly believe that nonsense.

  189. bucrightoff Says:

    Cause on 3rd and 3, playing 6 yards off is the right call…

  190. lurker Says:


    and, hence, why i said “oops” right after in the next post.

  191. Mike J Says:

    Evans has some strong hands.

  192. Buc1987ForJameis Says:

    So you build up an O-line and get a mediocre QB behind them and have 7-9 seasons never having a shot for a long while for a possible franchise QB, because you’re drafting so low.

    No thanks. Take one of those 2 QB’s I don’t care which one anymore, but it BETTER be one of the 2.

  193. Buc1987ForJameis Says:

    Don’t worry Bucs fans this game will be over soon.

  194. lurker Says:

    17-4 jets. go jets.

    go raiders vs broncos

  195. lurker Says:

    17-3…damn fingers

  196. Dave Pear Says:

    I figured out why the stadium looks so empty. It’s “Honor the Veterans” day so a lot of our fans are decked out in camouflage. They’re there but you just can’t see them.

  197. lurker Says:

    nfl network had a redraft of the top 10 players based upon the first half of the season.


    2 raiders rookies make the top 10 redraft.

  198. sho-nuff Says:

    has Atlanta punted yet?….classic Tampa 2…bend but don’t break…count on other teams converting 3rd and longs all day on this defense

  199. lurker Says:

    wow, that’s a stat.

  200. Celly Says:

    “Bucs 0-15 on 3rd down in second half of last 4 games”

  201. Celly Says:

    a QB that can scramble.

    what a viewing relief.

  202. Trubucfan22 Says:

    See Glennon. That’s how you scramble for a first down.

  203. Jughead Says:

    ref missed holding or PA on that anyway

  204. Celly Says:

    it sure is nice when the ball finally bounces your way…

    good concentration vJax

  205. bucrightoff Says:

    That;s why hes a DB and not a WR lol horrible dropped pick 6.

  206. Jughead Says:


  207. Soggy Says:

    well well nice brake for us

  208. lurker Says:

    and the football gods like mccown today.

  209. Jughead Says:


  210. Soggy Says:

    well well not a brake for us

  211. Jughead Says:

    Is rainey hurt?

  212. lurker Says:

    but don’t like sims

  213. sho-nuff Says:

    yes!….play like you want that overall pick!

  214. Dave Pear Says:

    Not a good beginning to the Sims era.

  215. Celly Says:

    its the rooks’ first game.

    I’ll give him a pass on that one ONLY because its his first game…. He’s looked ok the other times he’s touched the ball.

    Bucs are a far more competitive team with McCown….

    What say you MGM?

  216. Jughead Says:

    well, that should just about rap it up……..have a good day fellas

  217. Jughead Says:


  218. Bucnut2 Says:

    Brandon sorry this team has $55mil spent on free agents and is no better than last years team. You’re listening to Lovie to much. This team is really bad.

  219. Jeff Says:

    Football gods corrected the McClown pick 6 with a fumble recovery for the FalCoons.

  220. lurker Says:

    “Bucs are a far more competitive team with McCown….”

    and inspired as someone else stated earlier.

    vjax is ballin today, too.

  221. Couch Fan Says:

    They are losing and its not as close as the score indicates. More competitive? Looks like the same sorry ass undisciplined team its been all year.

  222. RealityCheck Says:

    These two teams are very bad and I am very bored. The temperature is still nice so that’s a plus.

  223. mixxx31 Says:

    Five more yards

  224. lurker Says:


  225. bucrightoff Says:

    Atlanta is horrible, so saying they’re more competitve with McCown is very relative. If this was Green Bay it’d be 34-7.

  226. Dave Pear Says:

    Who is that masked man?
    A 53 yard punt return?
    Are you kidding me?

  227. Celly Says:

    They are losing and its not as close as the score indicates. More competitive? Looks like the same sorry ass undisciplined team its been all year.

    If you’re not seeing the team play more competitive and, as someone state earlier, insprired, then you’re just blindly hating every decision coach makes.

    Offense is playing better, defense has been improving (over the past 3 weeks) and special teams actually made a decent play just now.

    bucrightoff Says:
    November 9th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    Atlanta is horrible, so saying they’re more competitve with McCown is very relative. If this was Green Bay it’d be 34-7.

    But its not. It’s Atlanta. You can only play who is on your schedule.

  228. Soggy Says:

    mike evans is the man

  229. mixxx31 Says:

    That’s what the fu$k I’m talking about. Go Bucs

  230. mixxx31 Says:

    Run that ish Rainey

  231. bucrightoff Says:

    So great Celly, we’ve gone from definitely the worst teams in the league to one of the 3 worst in the league. Improvement, sweet….

  232. Couch Fan Says:

    If you’re not seeing the team play more competitive and, as someone state earlier, insprired, then you’re just blindly hating every decision coach makes.

    Stop pulling stuff out your ass. I didn’t say one thing about Lovie. They are playing a horrible defense and they have 10 points at home. That is bad. They also keep screwing themselves. Defense can’t stop anyone when its 3rd and long.

    I am entitled to my opinions just like you are entitled to stay blind. That is all.

  233. lurker Says:

    td buccaneers!

    too soon?

  234. Buckin' Round Says:

    I’m not sure how much more I can take, to be honest.

  235. Celly Says:

    bucrightoff Says:
    November 9th, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    So great Celly, we’ve gone from definitely the worst teams in the league to one of the 3 worst in the league. Improvement, sweet….

    So what would make you happy? For us to just keep sucking and never improve? Tank for the 1st round pick?

    Jesus, some of you just want to complain for complaining sake.

    As you can see, the running game can work when you have a QB that the defense is threatened can actually pass. Defenses like to stack the box against bad QBs….

    hint hint.

  236. lurker Says:

    soon to be 17 points couch!

    also, atlanta ONLY has 16 points vs our defense…lol

    improvement, indeed.

  237. Dave Pear Says:

    Fire those cannons!

  238. Soggy Says:


  239. Celly Says:


    so i’m guessing you expect the defense to pitch a shutout every game?

    stick to Madden.

    TD ASJ. watch them celebrations, though.

  240. lurker Says:

    lol, asf doin the cpt morgan

  241. lurker Says:

    oops, 15 yards

  242. mixxx31 Says:

    @ Celly, I got your back on this Bro.
    Couchfann…… Is a POPCORN FART!!!

  243. bucrightoff Says:

    We’re still a horrible football team, celebrating going from amazingly bad to just bad is not worth celebrating. When we get to mediocre then we can talk about improvement. But Atlanta is awful and they still have a quarter to win.

  244. Trubucfan22 Says:

    And joe really wondered why you start mccown over Glennon? The answer is painfully obvious. Mccown gives his team the best chance to win.

  245. mixxx31 Says:

    That man wearing #12 on the sidelines is looking luke a leader today.

  246. LJ'sDaddy Says:

    That’s a f#*$@&% penalty? Are you kidding me? The NFL will be flag football in 10 years. What a joke. A positive turns into a negative. Bucs football in 2014.

  247. Celly Says:

    bucrightoff Says:

    We’re still a horrible football team, celebrating going from amazingly bad to just bad is not worth celebrating. When we get to mediocre then we can talk about improvement. But Atlanta is awful and they still have a quarter to win.

    No one is saying we’re a great team, or even a good team.

    Guess what, though. You don’t go from horrible to great over night.

  248. ElioT Says:

    Can the defense get a stop?

  249. Dave Pear Says:

    We could use a turnover right here.

  250. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol this game is going the same way every other loss has gone this year for the most part. We trail all game. Make a 4th Qrt comeback just to lose in the end usually do to our own stupidity.

    Let’s see if im wrong.

  251. lurker Says:

    jets pounding on steelers. 20-3.

  252. Capt.Tim Says:

    Nice to see a real Qb guiding this team

  253. Mike J Says:

    Can ASJ do something good without doing something bad to make up for it??

  254. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Funny how every fan though we would lose 50- 3 again and when we do well, hey say it’s because Falcons are garbage. You just can’t please some fans. His team is better with Mccown at qb. And is much better than it was to start the season. Baby steps are still steps in the right direction.

  255. bucrightoff Says:

    And thats why its relative. Improvement is relative to competition level. If they improve when the games get tougher, then we can talk about improvement. But Atlanta is one their way to taking the lead again, so improvement may still involve losing. Hard to say it’s really improving to lose by less. It’s still losing.

  256. lurker Says:

    “No one is saying we’re a great team, or even a good team.”

    i think you and others said “improved” and “inspired”.

  257. mixxx31 Says:

    Best back to back coverage please all year.

  258. mixxx31 Says:


  259. ElioT Says:

    How bad is this defense on third down? Good god.

    Go Sucs!

  260. unbelievable Says:

    hope Banks is not injured

  261. Jughead Says:

    good response by the D here……..smh

  262. Skyline Crew Says:

    If the Bucs win and Jets win we are not getting 1st pick. Also, QB by committee anyone? Oh, and we need a RB bad. How is the QB the lead rusher? He ain’t no Vick.

  263. Jughead Says:

    nice phantom flag there

  264. unbelievable Says:

    are ou f*cking kidding me with that hands to the face penalty?

  265. Bangkok Buc Says:

    What a terrible call. Refs are a joke

  266. Mike10 Says:

    Very poorly coached team. Amazing how every time we score we draw a penalty for unsportsmanlike. Then a big hit made on an injured Hester at the 35 and we’re celebrating… that is a 1-7 team ladies and gentleman

  267. unbelievable Says:

    Love smith doesn’t challenge that? Terrible coach.

  268. Celly Says:

    Trubucfan22 Says:

    So by that logic, losing by 40 and keeping the game competitive all the way to the end is the same thing.


    lurker Says:
    November 9th, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    “No one is saying we’re a great team, or even a good team.”

    i think you and others said “improved” and “inspired”.

    Absolutely. This is the same team that lit us for 50+ last time we played. I was in the stadium watching that monstrosity.

    Improved/inspired doesn’t necessarily mean good/great. it means better than before.

  269. CB Buc Says:

    ASJ’s selfish penalty gave up 15 yards of field position… And the lead back to Atlanta.

    There is just no discipline on this team. Starts from the top

  270. Capt.Tim Says:

    Guess the refs decided to give the Falcons one

  271. Couch Fan Says:

    Lovie should of challenged that.

  272. Jughead Says:

    you welcome ——the refs

  273. bucrightoff Says:

    Let’s see what McCown can do.

  274. Celly Says:

    I swear, it seems like Atlanta never gets called for pick plays.


  275. sho-nuff Says:

    this defense is worthless….a bunch of gutless overpaid hacks

  276. ElioT Says:

    ZERO f**king playmakers on this defense. ZERO!

    Can’t stop a damn thing. No marbles!


  277. Young buc Says:

    The nfl is a joke

  278. bucrightoff Says:

    DO we get style points for losing? Is this the BCS? We’re about to be 1-8, exact same as we were last year. This is improvement in Bucs land. Goddamn we’re in for a long rebuild.

  279. sho-nuff Says:

    on our way to the number 1 pick overall!

  280. lurker Says:

    hard to get a “w” going against the falcons and refs!

    couldn’t challenge the fumble because refs ruled forward progress was stopped.

  281. Capt.Tim Says:

    Can’t chalkenge it. Refs decided to call “stopped forward progress”. No reviewable.
    Guess The Fuhrer Godell ordered the refs to let the Falcons win this one.
    Thankfully- they can dictate the winner easily.
    You just saw how easy it was to give a team a TD

  282. Another J Says:

    I hope Mike Smith thanks the refs for that BS flag on Banks!

  283. Skyline Crew Says:

    Our offense is terrible

  284. Onetrickpony Says:

    Love needs to get on down the road

  285. Jeff Says:

    Congrats Lovie on 1-8 and sticking to your guns on defense. No reason to change what is working so well. I think the Cover 2 is great!

  286. Matt Says:

    Another asinine illegal contact call on Banks.

  287. lurker Says:

    refs have too much power. and i thought baseball was bad.

  288. Young buc Says:

    The refs are controlling this game

  289. Bucnut2 Says:

    I’m hoping for another loss and continuing to “improve” our draft position. That’s the only thing that’s consistently improving

  290. Jughead Says:

    Koenen better be cut after this game. This is rediculous

  291. Soggy Says:

    And the tanking begins

  292. Another J Says:

    We need a new punter.

  293. Jeff Says:

    Final Score! 31-17. What a Joke. Lovie! You suck balls!

  294. Mdc1965 Says:

    Will the Glazerhouses please explain this team’s ineptitude to their fans before week 17?????? Or will will they meet with a local paper hack and answer softball questions at the end of the season? I am an EX season ticket holder, and will not give this team my hard earned $$$ until they earn it!

  295. mixxx31 Says:

    Okay D, we gotta make a big play.

  296. lurker Says:

    no hester, so why short punt?


  297. Celly Says:


    stupid play call.

  298. Jughead Says:

    ball game……..I f-ing hate everyone…..have a good night

  299. Jeff Says:

    McClown is such a puss!

  300. RealityCheck Says:

    I think the Bucs have a signal they put out that tells the team to collapse. Like a reverse bat signal.

  301. Jeff Says:

    It’s Glennon Time! Down 14 in the 4th qtr. This should end well…..

  302. 911bucs Says:

    omg please cut Koenen

  303. Bucnut2 Says:

    Here comes the pea shooter, I meant cannon.

  304. sho-nuff Says:

    I tell you what you have to be an absolute clown to go see this team play….scratch that…LOSER

  305. lurker Says:

    is glennon the answer?

  306. Ghost Says:

    Piss poor bush league defense

  307. Soggy Says:

    I see the falcon owner where is our owner or owners

  308. Jeff Says:

    Pathetic! This defense is so played out. Bad play calling, bad coaching and no depth whatsoever. I will never spend any money on this team until they FIRE Lovie.

  309. Bucnut2 Says:

    He is if the question is who is not an nfl starting qb

  310. sho-nuff Says:

    This team sucks because the Glazer boys suck…soon as pops started needing his a** wiped they have decimated this team….wimpy leaders bread a wimpy culture…

  311. Aubpierce Says:

    Turn out the lights,the party is over.

  312. Mdc1965 Says:

    You are dead on!!!
    Where the F are our “owners”?
    In Manchester?????

  313. Matt Says:

    That rollout playcall on 3rd and 2 was retarded. We dont have fast wrs and you cut off 1/2 the field.
    McCown still should have gotten rid of that ball oob and not taken the hit.

    Rifht here we need a fast strike. A wheel right to Sims or Murphy will work great.

  314. Connor Says:

    Established in 1976, the NFL welcomed a team to the league that was meant to lose year in and year out. The Tampa Bay Yucs!

  315. Soggy Says:

    self destrucking or just tanking for sure..

  316. Jughead Says:

    Lovie has lost the proverbial “room”

  317. Another J Says:

    Yep,We’re a bad team!

  318. Mike10 Says:

    Is there a team in the NFL that is top-to-bottom as bas as we are?

    This is embarrassing

  319. Soggy Says:


  320. bucrightoff Says:

    Bad teams find ways to lose. We are a very bad team, we will always find a way to lose.

  321. Mdc1965 Says:

    Hey Goodell….
    Remember when the NFL restricted owners from owning other sports teams?????
    Thanks for nothing! Glad the NFL gets to keep their tax exempt status!
    Hope your dream of a team in London fails!!!!

  322. Stanglassman Says:

    Brian is here Joel is in London. Enough of the stupid know nothings bashing the Glaziers for no reason.
    Got to review that call.

  323. PhillyBuc Says:

    What a sh!t show this team is, Lovie can’t even throw the red flag effectively

  324. lurker Says:

    he was legal

    foot can be in the air.

  325. Connor Says:

    HAHA of course we make a great play only for it to be wiped out by a penalty.

    The life expectancy for Bucs fans probably isn’t that high I imagine?

  326. Connor Says:

    HAHA of course we make a great play only for it to be wiped out by a penalty.

    The life expectancy for Bucs fans probably isn’t that high I imagine?

  327. Stanglassman Says:

    Dam the Refs are working hard to screw the Bucs!

  328. lurker Says:

    another play glennon couldn’t make.

  329. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Josh Mccown continues to make plays on third down. It amazing the difference between Mccown and Glennon on third downs.

  330. Mike J Says:

    Did Pereira just vindicate the Bucs??

  331. Ghost Says:

    Glad to see the McClown decision worked out today.

  332. unbelievable Says:

    how did they just call the penalty instead of reviewing the play? His back leg was clearly behind the line. WTF I swear all refs just hate the bucs. Always have. Not that it would have mattered but the call was more BS than the hands to the face on Banks.

  333. Mike10 Says:

    I’ve had enough – I want Lovie out. He’s garbage.

    He’s no different than any of the other “quiet leaders” on this team. A defensive minded coach w a bad defense is just a waste. He’s gotta go.

  334. Gt40bear Says:

    This officiating crew is obviously crooked! How else can you explain SO many horrible calls?

  335. lurker Says:

    no takes the lead and steelers down by 7. hang on jets.

  336. RastaMon Says:

    I always thought it was where the ball was relative to the LOS when the pass was thrown….

  337. Mdc1965 Says:

    Hey Culverglazers…..will the “Buccaneers” be playing at Wembly or Old Trafford when you move them to the UK? I can think of no other reason you would accept this level of performance for 10 years.

  338. R.O. Says:

    Glad we aren’t going to waste a win today. But these refs were horribly 1 sided.

  339. Ghost Says:

    The bucs lost this game.

  340. Trubucfan22 Says:

    What has the buccaneers done to the refs? Every game we are not only playing the other team and ourselves, but the refs too. It’s so blatantly obvious too.

  341. Gt40bear Says:


  342. Aubpierce Says:

    Fire the punter,fire the defensive coordinator,fire the head coach,and hire a new head coach that doesn’t play zone defense by whatever name it maybe called.

  343. Soggy Says:

    mike is the man

  344. Ghost Says:

    F–ck the jets they don’t even play in their home state.

  345. Gt40bear Says:

    Same effing ref! Telling you the guy is crooked!

  346. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Screw these refs. Pathetic

  347. Aaron Says:

    How does a ref miss that..

  348. Mike J Says:

    Zebras just calling plays against Tampa Bay by reflex??

  349. Another J Says:

    These refs are terrible.. These refs are terribly biased…These refs suck!

  350. Ghost Says:

    Great decision McClown made all the difference.

  351. Gt40bear Says:

    I want the name of that gray haired ref! I want to research him!

  352. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Mccown is on point. Third down magic man.

  353. R.O. Says:

    Again refs are horrible!! Home do you pick up a defensive holding call. Then miss an obvious catch.

  354. lurker Says:

    bad refereeing.

    rooting for the jets to get their win to improve our draft chances at a qb.

  355. Jerseybucsfan Says:

    Are we to blame if we lose probably but one thing is for sure the refs are not on our side

  356. RastaMon Says:

    Mdc1965…Culverglazers…LOL….but hey…at least we could watch the Bucs @ 9 in the morning…and get on with the rest of a beautiful Florida fall day….

  357. buc4lyfe Says:

    Does the officiating crew get fined cuz damn the suck

  358. Trubucfan22 Says:

    There’s the red in mike smiths pocket! Lol

  359. sho-nuff Says:

    @stangldoosh…the glazers deserve every bit of bashing they get. this screwed this team the minute they overpaid for Manu…gutted the team (year they sent Brooks and every ounce of leadership and connection to our culture packing) and have been floundering ever since…we don’t owe the SPIT….if you have a problem the reality of what is…then so be it enjoy YOUR dope show….

  360. R.O. Says:

    Our Oline still is horrible. Still glad we’re not gonna win.

  361. Dave Pear Says:

    These refs su(k!

  362. bucrightoff Says:

    That is a pick. Horrible decision by McCown, not like it would have mattered.

  363. Ghost Says:

    Piss poor

  364. lurker Says:

    interception, crap.

  365. Gt40bear Says:

    Ok maybe he’s not crooked, just overwhelmingly incompetent! Same guy again blows yet another call on that Atlanta pick!

  366. RastaMon Says:

    Hey..that Ref #15….that blew the last 2 calls..one for the Bucs and one for the “Coons….used to blow calls all the time in Buc games years ago….he had longer hair..but same azz clown !

  367. Ghost Says:


  368. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Bad decision. The int wasn’t his fault but the throw was not a good idea. Good game Mccown. I think he’s earned his job for this year, and cemented Glennon as the back up the rest of the year.

  369. Dave Pear Says:

    Well, I guess the Winston watch is officially in full effect. It seems pretty obvious that we should get either the 1st or 2nd pick in the draft.

  370. Taking back Sunday Says:

    Refs want us to get the first overall draft pick

  371. bucrightoff Says:

    Next week might be the last chance to win for the year. After Washington it’s Chicago, Cincy, Detroit, Carolina, Green Bay and New Orleans.

  372. Gt40bear Says:

    Hey we’ve improved from atrocious to horribly mediocre! At least they have bettered their draft position! Got some cushion now on the dirty birds!

  373. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Defense gets a stop!

  374. Young buc Says:

    Hey joe keep it real these refs suck

  375. Lee Says:

    Hey clowns, it’s not the refs fault. There are bad calls in every game. Simply put the Bucs are the worst team in football. Lovie is the worst coach in football. Licht is the worst GM in the league and the Glazers are the worst owners in the NFL. Nothing will change until the Glazer boys sell this team. Go Lightning!!

  376. jo_mama Says:

    McCown has thrown for MORE Ints than TD’s this season.

    But LOVIE wants to go with McClown.

    Fire lovie

  377. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    We are the worst team in the NFL. And BTW, the NFL is boring and sucks compared to college.mim over it. See you at the draft.

  378. heads2skywayaftergame Says:

    Poorly coached and an embarrassment. Sunday is for fishing around here. Probably the worse form of entertainment in the area!

  379. Young buc Says:

    Lee stfu

  380. Brent Says:

    Yeah thanks joe and tampa media, glazers. we actually took a step backwards with your new coach. What a waste of a year. Who hires a coach and takes a step backwards while still owing previous coach 3 years on contract.

  381. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Did Jackson touch the ball first? If he did, and didn’t establish himself inbounds, that was not a pick.

  382. Skyline Crew Says:

    We move up. Jets won

  383. jo_mama Says:

    so close to another INT.

  384. heads2skywayaftergame Says:

    Outclassed by one of the worst teams in the league. Looks like a Broadway show set up for the NFL.

  385. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Game over.

  386. RastaMon Says:

    Well that was better….

  387. Mord Says:

    This team still sucks, but … Whatever this offense is, it’s better with McCown, his mobility and (generally superior) accuracy

    Marriota in 2015
