Terrible Lack Of Discipline

November 24th, 2014
"Damnit men, toes on the line!"

“Damnit men, toes on the line!”

Penalties, fumbles, interceptions, punting the ball 18 yards… when will the madness stop?

It is up and down the line with the Bucs. Seemingly no player, save Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David, is innocent of bonehead mistakes this season.

It happens in the first quarter, second quarter, third quarter, fourth quarter, you name it.

Well, per the fingers of the “Custodian of Canton,” eye-RAH! Kaufman, only one team in the NFL plays with their heads up their rear ends like the Bucs.

The difference? The Eagles actually have an offense that can overcome mistakes. The Bucs do not. It really is that simple.

And when you don’t have an offense that can swiftly overcome stupid mistakes and turnovers, then you pretty much have to play perfect football.

This just in: The Bucs do not have those type of horses. So it comes back to coaching. If the message isn’t sinking in, and Joe guesses that is the case, then you have the wrong horses.

And a miserable 2-9 mark.

    I’ve been to prison once I’ve been married – twice I was once drafted by Lyndon Johnson and had to live in $hit-a$$ Mexico for 21 2 years for no reason I’ve had my eye socket punched in a kidney taken out and I got a bone-chip in my ankle that’s never gonna heal I’ve seen some pretty $hitty situations in my life but nothing has ever sucked more a$$ than this

    Didn’t mccoy get 3 offsides penalties in a row last week? How does he get a pass.

  6. lightningbuc Says:

    At least these men are respected by their flip-flop wearin’ coach, unlike how things were with that big meanie Schiano.

  7. DallasBuc Says:

    Db55- there are those above reproach, HC included and those that live in the doghouse…think Doug Martin.

  8. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    We would be heading toward the playoffs this year had we NOT destroyed what Schiano had been building the past two seasons. There is NO way that we would be 2-9 right now if we had Kept Coach Schiano.

  9. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs can’t even get out of their own way. Week after week produces the same mistakes over and over. It’s way past old and it’s difficult to watch without turning it off. Two wins in eleven games just sucks. I don’t see any other wins this season. How can any NFLteam be this bad this long?

    Stats are for losers…..exactly!!!

    My liver can’t handle another season like this

  12. port richey george Says:

    the o-line is guilty of holding and false starts almost every series of plays.
    it seems to be the same 2 guys on the o-line most of the time.
    josh mccown had way too many 3rd down and extremely long yardage plays thanks to his o-linemen. also, many 1st downs were brought back thanks to the o-line movement or holding.
    could the o-line players be betting against their own team????

  13. buc4lyfe Says:

    If you wanna get technical this is almost the exact same undisciplined team from last year…. You know when they played the exact same way

  14. Matt B Says:

    DB55 –
    Get off McCoy’s back. He only had one of the three offsides penalties. With all the problems this team has, you choose to rant about our best player. Everybody is sick of your misplaced anger. Based on all your moronic comments, I’ve come to the conclusion that you don’t know jack squat about football.

  15. Howard Cosell Says:

    Where is “The Bone”s Fire Lovie billboard?

    I had a bad feeling about the Schiano termination from the start.

  16. Brandon Says:

    Ok, this year is better because the defense is playing good football and hasn’t quit on the head coach. Again, thus team has been very competitive in all but 2 games, losing 6 on the last drive, and the other in the 4th quarter. And it’s also a better season because we don’t have a dunce in charge that was delusional in believing Melman Glennon was the future at QB. Hopefully, we continue to fight hard, lose, and then get ourselves into draft position to get a difference maker at QB.

  17. Brandon Says:

    If a losing football teams irks anybody this severely, that person needs to take a long hard look at their lives and start making changes. Losing sucks but there should be some balance in our lives that losing a game doesn’t ruin us.

    Matt B,

    Everybody? Please don’t speak for me.

    We are sick of mismanagement of the Bucs and their bull sh!t. They are our team, but they effing suck and deserve to hear about it.

    2-9 = worse than Schiano.

  20. DB55 Says:

    Thanks gents but to matt b I say just go back and watch it. The first was called on #91 but he wasn’t on the field. The second was called on the “nose tackle” but McDonald never moved it was #93 and the third was on #93. Don’t rely on the local media brother go back and seek the truth yourself.

  21. FanOfBucs Says:

    Last in most categories and most penalized..

    Fire-able stuff. I’m so surprised to see this from a Smith team.

  22. Top Producer Says:

    They just plain STINK! They should pay me to come and watch them.

  23. DB55 Says:

    Matt b

    Btw I’ve never rant(ed)? against LVD, our best player . I love me some LVD. He’s an unstoppable beast. I only rant on mccoy bc as a leader you are held to higher standards.

    Do you remember week 1 after NE lost to Miami and pats fans were up in arms calling for garapalo? Yea and that’s Brady 3x SB winner After losing 1 game in week 1.

    It’s those crazy North Eastern fans that demand the best all day everyday. I understand that our standards are much different here in the southeast.

    It’s because our football season weather sucks so bad in the Norrheast, so football (along with alcohol) is our distraction from snow, cold temps, and high heating bills. We envy you Southeasterners πŸ™‚

    ” this defense is playing better than last years defense ” what a joke . this team has allowed 300 points , third worst in league by only five points. The Bears have given up 300 points and the Bucs scored 13. Thier division stinks.You cannot compare the mess shiano inherited to what lovie has. Shiano was brought in to clean Raheems mess .It was gonna take more than a year to fix. If Buc fan had a little patience and quit listening the sport discjockeys, especially the wind bag at 3:00 that has never played or coached football at any level but hated Shiano. Stop making excuses for this Coach LS .Here is my favorite one ” it takes time to learn the system “. It’s football. 4-3 .3-4.Cover zero, 1, 2 ,3 ,quarters. LS is not inventing new shit. You wanted NO “Toes on the line “You got it. Enjoy.

  26. SteveK Says:

    Preach, canefan58!

  27. TBSwarm Says:

    I kinda wish they had given Shiano another year with no Freeman, start fresh with Glennon. But I think the Glazer’s saw Lovie sitting there and felt they had to pounce because, well look, he has a 10 win season in Chicago and was a former Buc, and all the fans were getting impatient.

  28. Zam Says:

    And Philly runs a lot more plays. Their average penalties per play I’m sure is way way lower.
