“That’s Buc Football Right There”

November 16th, 2014

Lovie Smith is excited

How about a rare video peek into the Bucs’ postgame locker room?

Via Buccaneers.com, Lovie Smith was all pumped up with his troops after victory in Washington.

Lovie tells his team why they got it done today, and to focus on starting a streak and to heck with the team’s record. “Fair enough?” Lovie asked.

Definitely click the link above, it might help you sleep like a baby. And if you really want to have fun, compare it to this happy locker room video of Greg Schiano on the road in 2012. Quite a difference.

What’s common in both videos is the presence of Team Glazer in the postgame locker room.

If you look closely at today’s video, you’ll see Bryan Glazer in the back right. Believe that Team Glazer keeps a very close eye.

    Ran into a lady from Manchester today. They hate the glazers more than we do. Despise might be the best word.

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Even the ugliest, fattest girl deserves to have fun at her prom…..its great to see us enjoy one……maybe we can play spoiler…..most of the teams we are playing are still in their division races…..

  3. OB Says:

    Next week will tell if this was a rare awakening of the DL and the OL or not, we can only hope and that goes for Mike Evan’s fourth 100 yard plus game along with Vjax having one. I don’t expect six sacks but four would be nice.

  4. Simeon Says:

    2-8. As “the wolf” from pulp fiction once said, let’s not start sucking each other’s d1cks yet.

  5. NewTampaChris Says:

    If Buc football is beating teams that are worse than the Bucs, then sign me up.

  6. DB55 Says:

    Schiano was 2-1 at the time the video was taken so the team was acting as if they’d been there before, go figure.

  7. The Buc Realist Says:

    this was one step forward, but 7 steps back for the future! Can’t wait to here all the local media say how it is all coming together. Then in the coming weeks when the bucs get manhandled again they will be dumbfounded!

    graze on sheep!

  8. Capt.Tim Says:

    Yay Lovie
    Goooo Bucs!

  9. Bucs Anthem Says:

    I really don’t see a difference between the two except that shiano looks more pump than lovie….but that’s just lovie’s demeanor I guess.

    What I thought was weird in the shanio vid from 2012 was that at the end it showed Josh Freeman

    ….kinda creepy……because he was all smiling……like a ghost from the past

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    I was just telling my wife over dinner that either the Redskins really suck or the Bucs D is catching on.

  11. Brent Says:

    5-11 gets us 7-8 pick? I’d rather win than tank. I’ve already had 8 crappy Sundays. Love mariotta but gotta win some games to build momentum for next year. Mcnown has shown flashes, mg too. Just build that o-line Lovie!!


    Lovie’s demeanor is terrible for a football coach. He’s not passionate at all. Weak-ass leader of men, IMO. That’s one of the main reasons why Dungy never won a SB here. No fire. No passion. Go work at a bank, Lovie. (not that u need to)

  13. The Ether Says:

    Schiano is fcuking insane… I know Ive been hard on Lovie, but if he keeps this up and gets BACK to BASICS, we’ll be alright…

    And if we dont have a Top 3 pick, then trade away a couple of 1s and The Neck and move up!

  14. OneLove Says:

    HAHA Lavonte David looked like he wanted to SLAP THE SH!T outta Schiano! The Players definitely prefer playing for Lovie! He’s the better coach(and it’s not even a discussion)!!

  15. Brent Says:

    I’ll jump on Lovie bandwagon in a flash if he starts winning I def wanna see what he does next year. As frustrating as this season has been, one year to fire a coach is crazy. Probably at least 3 years. I even think schiano should have gotten another year. We can’t just keep firing coaches so fast.

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I know this was a “meaningless” game…..even Joe has used that discription…..but it wasn’t meaningless to me…..to McCown….to ME13…..wasn’t meaningless to the rest of the team….to Lovie….and I doubt it was “meaningless” to the Redskins.

    So….suck it up….”tank” for a better pick crowd….you lost today!!!

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The “meaningless” game gang lost today…..it wasn’t a meaningless game for me, Josh McCown, ME13…..the rest of the Bucs, Lovie, Licht……and probably wasn’t meaningless to the Redskins…..

    So….suck it up “tank” for a better pick mob…..you lost today!!!

  18. Charles Sandomenico Says:

    That was a good game by the Bucs. Defense was solid and the online gave McNown time and he delivered …Gotta say that Griffin is shaky at best as a NFL QB.

  19. me Says:

    Didn’t anyone notice this that the DEA is investigating the BUCS today


  20. Buc1987 Says:

    Trade Glennon to the Skins…they need a better QB than Griffin III.

  21. Patrick in VA Says:

    Was at the game and if there is a more brow beaten fan base in football than the Bucs, it’s the redskins. The stadium was a morgue and noisy cared when anything on the field happened, good or bad.

    Had a great front row view of Evans’first TD and saw that McCown missed asj for a wide open td that was a field goal instead. So far my wife and I ate 3-3 for Bucs winning the games we go to. If you via want to stay pooling your money for season tickets for us next year, is call that a sound investment

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Patrick in VA…ha ha ha were you the Buc fan that was sitting in the front row of the endzone?

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Patrick in VA

    I told you I had a hunch we would win this game…..glad you enjoyed it……I am 16 & 4 when I travel…..but all were home games….2 losses this year….

  24. Glennon Sucks Says:

    Joe.. Are you digging into story about DEA agents investigating the NFL and how teams distribute pain killer?. Jay Glazer reported they are going to be taking the Bucs doctors off the bus as soon as they’re back.

  25. Buc1987 Says:

    There was 3 Buc fans in the front row of the end zone. One dude had on a number 24 jersey and some silly hat.

    TBBF…but still Go Jets!

  26. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ 87

    Oh yes….I am rooting for the Jags & Jets……Raiders may be hopeless…..

  27. mveal2006 Says:

    i guess im the only bucs fan who saw on the national news our locker room was raided by the DEA for alleged violations of the controlled substance act.

    disappointed but not surprised. however, until now i had hoped that the bucs would bring tebow in. now im glad he was spared this situation.

  28. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Glennon Sucks

    Further reports are that the DEA boarded the Buc Bus…..players explained that all the pain killers were ingested by Lovie before every game….so there were none in the possession of team Doctors…..oh, what a relief!!!

  29. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    @Glennon Sucks:

    I just read a Washington Post concerning the DEA surprise inspections, it said that the 49ers were inspected after their game at the Gaints.but that contrary to reports the Bucs did not get a surprise inspection. I guess the feds are concerned with NFL teams violating the “Controlled Substance Act” by dispensing goodies to keep players on the field per the Post journalists……

  30. Eric Says:

    Lovie will turn it around just like he has done before.

    Taking a little more time than id hoped to fix the total disaster he inherited.

    But fix it he will all to the dismay of the impatient numbnuts.

  31. bucrightoff Says:

    We beat the Redskins. They are terrible. Lets see how they finish when the schedule gets quite tough. That will be the stretch of growing hope or growing concern.

  32. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    For once it was easier watching the Bucs than my Noles. I REALLY liked watching this game. Nothing like watching our defense dominate again. It took me back to the glory years for one game. Did this defense not remind the rest of you of the old Bucs defense in the late 90’s?

    LightningBuc said it best in the live thread about Evans. “A star is born.”

    I can only imagine what it would be like to have a half decent OC and a half decent o-line.

    If they win back to back games then we are onto something. I will actually take a 7-9 record and a drop in the draft just to see it happen. Just to watch them go on a run. That would be fun for once. I don’t think it will happen, but ya never know. 6-10 and a drop in the draft however won’t make me happy.

  33. Joe Says:

    For those who have watched Homeland too much, the NFL is under investigation, not the Bucs. This is from a lawsuit against the NFL. Lawsuit claims teams — plural — hand out painkillers like M&Ms. DEA did a search on Bucs and 49ers to make sure certified doctors were in charge of pills, that inventory matched records.

    Where did the Bucs play today? Do the math.

  34. Joe Says:

    Are you digging into story about DEA agents investigating the NFL and how teams distribute pain killer?

    No. Not a Bucs story but NFL.

  35. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    I forgot to add this. I know it’s the crappy Skins, but they tasted a dominate victory today. Let’s hope it tasted good and they leave that taste in their mouths into next weeks game.

  36. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Joe I loooooooove Homeland!

  37. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Still not totally confident in Liar Smith. This O-line leaves RB’s out to dry every play. Doesn’t matter which, Martin, Rainey, James, and now Sims. Special Teams is probably the worst in the league.

    Defense was without a doubt impressive though. Turnovers, sacks, stops on 3rd down, you name it. However, I’m not sure what the outcome would’ve been had McCoy played instead of RGKNEE.

    Call me pessimistic, I’m just not getting my hopes up. But I’d sure as hell would like to see games like this for the rest of the season rather than them tanking for a top spot. At least that’ll show Lovie isn’t a complete imbecile that can get through to his players.

    We can always trade up for a QB. I want to see improvement like this.

  38. ddneast Says:

    Wow, players getting painkillers from trainers. What shocking news!
    This has been going on for years.
    I doubt if any of you have ever read “North Dallas Forty,” which was written in the Kate 60s, but this practice was going on back then.
    Well at least some DEA agents got to go to the game for free which I am sure was the sole purpose of the visit.
    Still it’s good to see even a win doesn’t shut up all the Debbie Downer clowns out here who profess to be Bucs fans.

  39. Bucfan77. Says:

    I wonder if a past quarterback might have LEAKED a little something like many feel he or someone close to him did about his use (ALLEGED) of PEDs. The report said it was a player on the checked teams and played between _(forgot) and 2012. Just a wonder!

  40. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    “I doubt if any of you have ever read North Dallas Forty.”

    I read it and saw the movie. The book was better.

    A VERY good read is a book called The Franchise by the same author as North Dallas Forty. It’s main plot is about how much stuff goes on behind the scenes with pro football teams. The book is written with such realism, you’d be ahrd pressed to think the book was fiction. I liked the book better than North Dallas.

    I suggest everyone read that book. It’s a very good story.

  41. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Plot summary : The Franchise

    Taylor Rusk is a star college quarterback and a can’t-miss prospect in The League. Through various illegal means, North Texas is awarded an expansion franchise. As expected, the expansion Texas Pistols draft Rusk number one. The Pistols have a five-year plan to turn the team into champions, and getting Taylor Rusk ready is the key. But Rusk is on to the corruption and refuses to be a victim. With his college coach at the helm and “old league” legends mentoring him, Taylor Rusk plays The League’s game until it’s time for him to make his most daring move to bring it down.

  42. Capt.Tim Says:

    Anyone who thought Schiano was a coach- is a totally clueless Zombie.
    It’s hard to be that stupid. Schiano may all be the worst Coach in league history- he had no idea- and tried using schemes better suited for Jigh school.

    If you watch tape of Schianos games- you can actually see the other team- lined up on their side line- laughing at most of the Offensive plays Schiano called!
    He was a joke

    Lovie has the 3rd highest winning percentage among all active coaches. He took the Bears to the Super Bowl, in his third year.

    Anything else from you- “miss Schiano”?
    Uninformed zombie

  43. DB55 Says:

    Jacquies Smith #56

    I think we found ourselves a DE. Amen!!

  44. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    After watching youtube videos of Calvin Johnson highlights. I do believe the Bucs have the 2nd coming of Calvin Johnson only 10 seconds slower in the 40.

    Calvin ran a 4.35 and Evan’s best is 4.47. It may be too premature for me to say it, but I’ll say it again. Mike Evans just might be Calvin Johnson 2.0.

  45. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Capt.Tim…Schiano did go 7-9 in his rookie season.

  46. Trubucfan22 Says:

    I’m happy for Lovie and the players, they needed this win. Lovie needed it keep the fans at bay. And the players needed it for their morale. Yeah the Redskins are a mess, but it at least proves we aren’t as big of a mess as one other NFL team. The way we played today was a big step in the right direction. Things are steadily getting better. This defense has gotten better every week it seems. And ever since Mccown took over at qb the offense has moved the ball more consistently than in weeks past. 3rd down conversion rate is 5000% better than it was under Glennon. It’s a work in progress but the players still have their passion and they are still buying into Lovie. As long the players continue to do that then Lovie deserves his job. But if the players check out like they did for schiano, then it’s time to move on.

  47. Loggedontosay Says:

    Image if the Bucs draft Jameis Winston and Duke Johnson III next year!

  48. Mike10 Says:

    I’m hearing wind of a rumor saying DEA was at One Buc today on illegal prescriptions?

    Any idea on this Joe?….

    [It is really nothing. Whole thing was over in five minutes. Just checking paperwork. If the Redskins were playing anyone else Sunday, it would have been that team. A step above routine. — Joe]

  49. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Well I would say A.J Green is Calvin 2.0. I’m gonna stick with the Vincent Jackson clone only without the age and drops.

    In any case, Evans has been an absolute beast so far, and he’s barely old enough to drink. Glad we got Evans @ 7.

  50. Patrick in VA Says:

    @87 – if you’re talking about a dude in a red Bucs t shirt and red hoodie then yeah, that was me

  51. Patrick in VA Says:

    I’m not sure if all of the gibberish in my post last night was due to auto correct or the after effects of a few too many. Maybe both. Either way, sorry for the confusing post

  52. Eric Says:

    Getting them to buy in is half the battle. As Brooks said, there is a learning curve to play this defense.

    Looks like they are learning a little anyway.

  53. BoJim Says:

    Wins = YES

    Tanking = NO

  54. ddneast Says:

    Go to the head of the class Jameis87. You are absolutely right on all accounts. Hope you also read Celebrity Turkey Shoot by the same author, Peter Gent, who, as we both probably know, used to be a receiver for the Cowboys.
    Not as serious a read as the rest of his works but it is truly a hilarious tome.
    Gent wrote about the hypocrisy and corruption of professional sports and wasn’t kind to such authority figure type luminaries like Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry.
    To Gent, sacred cows tasted best well done.
    You are right in your film critique as well. The book, like most books, was much better than the movie. However, the cast was outstanding in their roles.
    Nolte was perhaps the best as the antihero Phil Elliot, but Mac Davis playing Don Meredith, somehow turned out to be the perfect choice.
