You want penalties? You like penalties? Well, one team you need to embrace is the Bucs.

Now 2-10, the Bucs are the fourth-most penalized team in the NFL.

Entering today, the Bucs averaged 8.1 penalties a game per TeamRankings.com. Of course, the teams with more than the Bucs are all playoff bound (Seattle, New England, Denver).

For a team like the Bucs who play for turnovers and keeping the game close, penalties are harsh.

Simply put, the Bucs are not nearly a good enough team to survive a rash of penalties. Today they had 13 for 94 yards. Thirteen!

The penalty that sunk the Bucs was, just when it appeared the Bucs had the ball well within Patrick Murray’s kicking range and a victory in the final seconds, the Bucs were tagged with 12 men on the field.

This is simply unacceptable. Do the Bucs not practice a two-minute drill? Are the players not taught who should be in the game and who should not be given the groupings? It is called situational football.

This goes back to coaching. Coaches instill discipline. There is no discipline on this team.

Josh McCown seemed to imply wide receiver Robert Herron was the man who was supposed to be on the sidelines. Yep, a rookie.

Unlike the Seahawks, Patriots and Broncos, the Bucs simply don’t have the firepower to overcome all of these penalties. That’s not Lovieball.

    Penalties or not the YUCS simply suk.

  2. Jim Says:

    Yeah and Jacksonville is the least penalized team. I am not sure if that makes them better or worse than Tampa.

  3. The Buc Realist Says:

    The local media would be all over this topic and point the finger at the head coach if the last coach was here. But we get to hear excuses like, ” he was trying to hard” and ” he was just playing aggressively!”

    Watching the Packer Offense Man Up against the Patriots….even the Rookies…How many on our Offense Man Up against other teams? Instead they play like “Lovie’s Ladies”.

  5. SteveK Says:



    Schiano should’ve been given a third year.


    Glennon should be reinserted.

  6. AlaskaBuc Says:

    McClown can imply all he wants, he still singlehandedly lost another

  7. bucrightoff Says:

    Just a poorly coached team to be so undisciplined. It’s always penalties at critical moments too.

  8. Marlow Says:

    Correct SteveK… The team was more disciplined and… It turns out… the Dungy boobleheads were were wrong about how awful he was as a coach. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, so we have to ride the Lovie trim now.

    I used to think that the refs were intentionally targeting the Bucs with a lot of borderline yellow but as was shown today most of the flags are well deserved. Another game that the Bucs should have won; oh and for the “winless for Winston” crowd: Raiders lost 52-0 today to the Lambs, I do not see them getting their 2nd win in 2014 and will probably trade their #1 to a team that needs a qb thus crushing your hopes even if the Bucs were to go after him so all this joy at the Bucs losing another winnable game is just idiotic. Just told one of my Winston mob/FSU buddies that and he turned pale like I just told him his whole stock portfolio was snatched by Amway & Enron and said: “Dude, the Raiders wouldn’t ***k the Bucs qb plans like that would they?” Well, yeah they would if some moron team like the Skins or Giants want to leapfrog 2 win Tampa for a qb they really want and are willing to give up RG3 picks to get him……

    “You over officious jerks!!!”

    To quote the great Marv Leavy…

    The game today was just ridiculous… I hope we never see this officiating crew again… The Bucs are just bad and undisciplined mess… How many penalties on Gilkey and Cousins? I counted seven… Just more proof that this line needs built…

  12. Ray Rice Says:


    Lmfao. That is exactly what this offense does.

  13. Zam Says:

    I really wonder what these guys do all day. Some of them count their money, but I mean the other guys.

  14. sho-nuff Says:

    “stupid does as stupid be…” been saying all season that we have an absolutely stupid team…coach finally said it today…reflection?

    I thought unloading talib and that tard blount would immediatly make us twice as smart…nope

  15. OB Says:

    This was Gilkey’s first game as a center, I give him a pass on this one but he must learn from it. The rest are beyond belief, if McCown or whoever was designated to count players could count we night have won if the kick wasn’t blocked.

    Our offense was terrible with the QB again doing all he can to lose even if he was trying to win.

  16. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    You guys need to stop with that “Schiano should have gotten another year” crap. The team hated him! Had he been a tenured coach with lots of success, you can get over that. However, Schiano was not that. He would not have fixed anything. First off, he would have probably drafted a safety or RB with our first round pick. Schiano will never be a winning NFL coach – EVER. Mark that down. I would be beyond shocked if he even got another shot. Raheem Morris is more likely to get another shot than that clown. All this losing has messed up your brains.

    And no, Lovie doesn’t get a pass. He is the head coach, he is ultimately responsible. However, he shouldn’t be fired after only one year. That’s stupid, and if you really think about who is our OC and QB, it’s pretty amazing we are even competitive. He’s got next year to fix it, period. I set the bar at a minimum of 6 wins for next season, but it’s got to be an impressive 6 wins. We have to look like a well coached football team that only loses because we our rookie stud QB is still making rookie mistakes. If Arroyo is on this staff, or our current 2 QB’s ever see the field next season, it’s Aloha to Lovie.

    I 2nd that Hawaiian Buc.

  18. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Haha I was told by the people in my section I’m to intense when I yell at the games. Some think I’m crazy. I say take me to church. People honestly think I go to the games just to high five everybody. No I’m tired
    of the horseshit of a team. And some of these fans can just stay home next time. I’ll be there yelling all the time till this team gets it right. I don’t give a shirt if they don’t hear me but maybe it will get all of you other fans up and get mad. These refs in case you have not noticed have been making some sketchy calls on us. Just sayin. And yes the Bucs are horrible. This team needs Jesus. Lol
