Packers At Bucs, Open Thread

December 21st, 2014

bucs cheerleader 1221

So here we are, the Sunday before Christmas and it’s a Packers convention at the Den of Depression —  Green Bay South.

Hey, what do you expect? The Bucs haven’t given fans any reason to come to games this year and Packers fans are escaping the long and brutal winter of Wisconsin.

Bang it here for your thoughts during the game, no matter how many picks Aaron Rodgers may throw, no matter how many sacks Da’Quan Bowers may have.

As always, Joe encourages you to e-mail URLs of illegal video streams of the game among yourselves, but posting said illegal links here can and will get your run.

Go Bucs!

    I’m hopeful the Bucs do a moment of silence for the Tarpon Springs Policeman.

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    For those of you who are hoping for a loss… least join me in rooting for Mike Evans, Danny Lansanah, Jaquies Smith, Kevin Pamphile, Orie Lemon & Charles Sims to have great games.

    Go Bucs…..make the Cheeseheads cry all the way back to their miserable abodes….

  3. Casual Observer Says:

    IMO, starting Cousins is a mistake. If you want to win.

  4. MaHaBoNe.D Buc Says:

    Today is one step closer to our #1 pick overall. Haven’t watched our commented since about the 8th game. I’ve enjoyed my Sunday’s a lot better than watching this crap. The only thing that scares me is that Lovie and Licht still have jobs when the draft comes around. If so, then I’m sure things will be just as bad next year because I’m sure that he will pass on a franchise QB in the first round. Also, If i a prospective OC getting interviewed I would demand either Mariotta or Winston with the first pick OR NO DEAL! thanks anyway but NO Thank you, I’ll wait until the next opportunity. Just sayin’…

  5. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Until I heard TJ Rives bring it up on the pregame I had forgotten Wisconsin plays In RayJay on New Years. Some lucky Wisconsinites are getting a twofer for their holiday and an excuse to get out of that horrid weather for a week and a half.

    Welcome Wisconsinites of all shades, green and gold and red and white.

  6. Buccfan37 Says:

    Bah Humbug Packer fans!

  7. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    It’s not a done deal yet. We could lose out and the Titans could still pass us for that #1 pick. Still at #2 even if the Titans have grown weary of Jake Locker and decide not to resign him and pick a QB at #1 that still leaves a Heisman for us.

  8. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    “Bah Humbug Packer fans!”

    I love me some Packer fans. Unlike Philly fan they are not obnoxious at all and even have manners.

    Most of all though I love their colors…green $$$$$ and gold $$$$$. Nice bucks for our economy. Come on down!

  9. MaHaBoNe.D Buc Says:

    ST Pete,

    What scenario would have to happen if both teams lose out for Tampa not to get the first pick?

  10. J Moné Says:

    Doesn’t look that green of a crowd -_-

  11. Soggy Says:

    Hope ME and VJ can get there 1000 yrd stat this year..

  12. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Simply put we want all of the Bucs opponents or as many as possible to lose to weaken our strength of schedule.

    We want the Giants to beat the Rams..the Browns to beat the Panthers and the Texans to beat the Ravens. But there are a number of scenarios in the next two weeks where the Titans “strength of schedule” as figured by opponents records could actually be worse than ours. I think we have a 3-4 game “lead” for being the worst losers.

  13. J Moné Says:

    I hate Leonard Johnson -_-

  14. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Yellow fever already! I was watching highlights of the San Diego SF game and I swear it looked like a flag every play.

    I could tell the refs where the put those yellow hankies. They’re ruining the game and challenging the NHL for having the worst officials in the game..

    OK that last sentence was hyperbole. No sport has officials that are as horrible as the NHL.

  15. Soggy Says:

    My MY, Run Run Pass Punt.. Oh Ya..

  16. SSG Mike Says:

    So the regional game advertised here in Colorado Springs was supposed to be the Bucs vs Packers due to our proximity to Wisconsin but as usual the Bucs suck so bad they changed it to the Saints vs Falcons at the last minute. Going to go finish Christmas shopping for the kids and finish a garage project.

  17. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    “My MY, Run Run Pass Punt.. Oh Ya..”

    Save that post. I think you’ll get to use it frequently today.

  18. BuccoDav Says:

    Good to see McClown is still trying to force passes to covered receivers… he must think he is better than he really is…

  19. Alexstotle00 Says:

    Michael Johnon Sighting!!!

  20. Jughead Says:

    that was a fumble

  21. lurker Says:

    2 sightings…wow

  22. BuccoDav Says:

    Who is #90?

  23. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    OK guys…if Johnson keeps this up…smashing Rodgers and then taking it to Brees next week do we forgive him? Maybe he has been injured.

    Two series into this game and he’s already played better than the entire season with the possible exception of that Steelers game.

  24. Soggy Says:

    Johnson what have we here? Were has this been all year??

  25. BucFanForever Says:

    So, Michael Johnson is going to screw up the buc’s next season too.

  26. Jughead Says:

    wow….a stunt….haven’t seen one in awhile

  27. Dave Pear Says:

    It won’t be over turned. The refs want us to have the #1 pick.

  28. Another J Says:

    The Ghost must have borrowed some PEDs from Bowers…

  29. RastaMon Says:

    Rogers is concussed

  30. Dave Pear Says:

    What? A call in OUR favor?

  31. Jughead Says:

    If you don’t want the Bucs to win this game, please stop posting…..there’s no need

  32. Jughead Says:


  33. CJO Says:

    The offensive line is so hard to watch… lol

  34. Another J Says:

    I see McCown is playing to win the draft today!

  35. cmurda Says:


    Many of the posters rooting for a Bucs loss are doing it for the sake of the team. I can’t possibly watch the game and hope for a Bucs loss. With that said, a Bucs loss is the best for our chances next year.

  36. Soggy Says:

    Cousins and dotson could have at least helped mccown up..

  37. BuccoDav Says:

    Nice series, McClown!

  38. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Man…with Johnson showing up and GB playing poorly I was beginning to get nervous about that top pick. The McCown came out on the field to comfort all of us. What a freaking joke….throw the GD ball away!!!

  39. Buccfan37 Says:

    Cement shoes McCown. Put Glennon in!

  40. RastaMon Says:

    McCown sucks donkey…Lovies hand pick QB

  41. cmurda Says:

    As I watch our defense continue to improve, it does give me hope. I wonder how this defense feels after each Sunday. They must be really tempted to give the offense a soap party.

  42. Bucnut2 Says:

    Those who want us to lose out; no worries mccown will not let us down.

  43. Jughead Says:


    You could put John Elway in with this offensive line and he would get killed

  44. Says:

    Thanks to josh McCown he’ll find a way to keep us in line for # 1 mike glen on has to be like wtf lol roflmao hysterical ” Josh gives us the best chance to win(the #1 pick lol)

  45. CJO Says:

    This offense is so terrible… Can’t even get excited for good defensive plays any more unless they score cause the offense is pathetic

  46. Dave Pear Says:

    A soap party?
    That sounds kind of kinky.

  47. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Still early in the game. Any guesses as to how many turnovers McCown has.

    I think he has a great game and only has two. LOL Of course they’ll both come at the worst possible time, but at least it’ll improve on his usual three.

  48. Jughead Says:

    please don’t try to arm tackle Lacy…..its just embarassing

  49. Patrick in VA Says:

    Story of our season. Defense is doing well against one of the best offenses in the league and the offense is abysmal. McCown is holding the ball like it has his credit card information on it and doesn’t want anyone else to get it

  50. Dave Pear Says:

    Our vaunted Offensive Line…AKA…
    The “Pewter People Greeters”.

  51. cmurda Says:

    Not that kind of soap party Dave. I’m talking the message sending, hold a guy down with a blanket, soap inside a bag with a few swings. That changes a person. In this case, maybe an offense.

  52. P'cola Buc Says:

    Question for McCown….. Who would you rather coach up next year Mariota or Winston?

  53. Buccfan37 Says:

    Lacy running through lace.

  54. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Watching Lacy….he’s a load. I’m not unhappy with our RB’s for next year but they all bring similar talents. Jevorskie Lane is a blocker not a runner.

    And so who do we have to go into “beast mode” like Lynch or Lacy.

    You guys know any beasts available in the draft. RB’s should be easy to find in later round of the draft.

  55. Architek Says:

    Is this game over yet???

  56. finishers Says:

    I can’t stand MCcown!

  57. Soggy Says:

    where you throwing.. wow

  58. Bucnut2 Says:

    I’m not sure but I think we need a qb.

  59. BuccoDav Says:

    It’s a puntfest!

  60. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Rick Stroud with a great piece on VJax today. I want VJax back. Such class mixed with that kind of talent is rare in today’s NFL. There are certainly others…GMC..LVD on our team…

    Bring back VJax and Evans and ASF will benefit…as will Jameis or Marcus.

  61. Soggy Says:

    Me Thinks We Need a QB

  62. cmurda Says:

    I can’t wait for the defending of McCown by Lovie. We are clearly positioning ourselves for the #1 pick by playing McClown.

  63. Shane Marco Says:

    Are only hope is McClown getting hurt.

  64. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Don’t disagree but I think we might just be protecting Glennonn’s health and trade value for a move to pick up some more draft picks.

  65. cmurda Says:

    I just threw up in my mouth hearing 12 men on the field against us.

  66. Dave Pear Says:

    12 men on the field? That never happens to us.

  67. cmurda Says:

    Agreed St Pete.

  68. Dave Pear Says:

    We had 12 men and he still makes the play.

  69. P'cola Buc Says:

    Don’t worry Cmurda…. Football doesn’t start till November (2015)!

  70. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    5-11 230 and a 4.4 forty. I covet having Eddie Lacy. We need a our own “beast mode” runner and he’s surely not on the roster right now. Mike James is tough and he has size but for whatever reason he can’t crack our lineup.

  71. Buccfan37 Says:

    Lacy rumbling bumbling stumbling for the lead. Where’s the D?

  72. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Do we have a first down yet? I’ve lost track.

  73. P'cola Buc Says:

    Bucs had 12 men on the field as Lovie’s salute to Tedford in the CFL.

  74. cmurda Says:

    The stable of RB’s we have is fine. Look at the difference in the blocking. Lacy waits for his blocks because he knows they will be there. Our O Line gets pushed back. Our backs don’t have that luxury.

  75. Skyline Crew for Mariota or Winston Says:

    6 yds of offense. Yeah McCown gives us the best chance to win. Put in Glennon.

  76. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Good one P’cola!

  77. Soggy Says:

    The only time the Bucs have gone winless at home over an entire season was in 1976

  78. Jughead Says:

    its hard to lose track when you don’t have any

  79. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Don’t disagree Cmurda. Our OL has been less than stellar this year. Everytime I’ve seen Mike James with any blocking I like him. He’s bigger and runs harder than our other backs. I’m not an expert though and I guess the Bucs have a reason to keep him off the field.

  80. Jughead Says:

    what the F was that?

  81. Rrsrq Says:

    We have a slight pass rush, what do the Pack do, hurry up the offense with quick passes.

  82. P'cola Buc Says:

    When will Lovie’s ever learn to stop looking for “fill-in” QBs!

  83. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Ha Ha. Now even the national announcers including Ronde are making fun of McCown. Was that last pass even in the same zip code as a Buc receiver?

    Again do we have a first down?

  84. Mdc1965 Says:

    Maybe Lovie is more clever than we think. McCown=1st pick

  85. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Just imagine. Bowers takes this off season and gets in great shape.

    Oh it’s too early for Vodka or a bowl and so I just can’t begin to imagine Bowers getting in shape.

  86. Brooks4Prez Says:

    No first down in our four total drives…..mcCLOWN has one yard per drive passing. What a disgrace to QB’s everywhere.

  87. Mdc1965 Says:

    Can the Glazers give any potential ticket buyer a reason to part with their hard earned money next year?!?!?!? It has been 10 years of crap from this team.

  88. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    He may not be awesome but the more I see him the more I like Alteraun Verner. Dude will stick his head in there.

    DB’s are ok heading into next year.

  89. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    “Can the Glazers give any potential ticket buyer a reason to part with their hard earned money next year?!?!?!?”

    YES! They could sell the team!

  90. Brooks4Prez Says:

    Hey St.petesbucsfan….that only leaves us a center, 2 guards, 2 tackles, 2 DE’s, a QB, a punter away from competing. YEAH!!! GO BUCS.

  91. Dave Pear Says:

    Total yds.-
    GBay- 185
    TBay- 6
    Sounds about right.

  92. buccinfan Says:

    i hope we bring in either clausen anderson keenun sanchez geno smith chase daniels hoyer locker or brandon weedan. man well have a serious chance for the playoffs.

  93. Mdc1965 Says:

    Is a wet fart cause for concern?

  94. Brooks4Prez Says:

    Someone arrest the Bucs offense for being well…pretty damn offensive. 12 total plays for a whopping S-I-X yards. Half a yard a play. Jimmininy I can fall down forward drunk and gain two yards.

  95. Jughead Says:

    nice block Gilk

  96. Soggy Says:


  97. Jughead Says:

    No, but a wet shart is……

  98. Another J Says:

    12 total yards of offense. SMH

  99. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Is there any way McCown could suck enough to force Lovie to play Glennon in the 2nd Half? Six freaking yards!!!!!!!!!

  100. Jughead Says:

    another sharty pass

  101. buccinfan Says:

    I feel bad for those bucs fans at the stadium

  102. Brooks4Prez Says:

    Hey look at me, I walked from the couch to the fridge and back and agined more yardage than the Bucs offense……just wait till i go to the crapper.

  103. Buccfan37 Says:

    Tank City.

  104. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    “Is a wet fart cause for concern?”

    Only if it’s lumpy.

  105. lurker Says:

    “Someone arrest the Bucs offense” for indecent exposure!

    “Hard to watch this week in and week out.” haha good call mr. announcer!

  106. Jughead Says:

    makes me happy that Ronde is laying into the offense like he is…..

  107. Another J Says:

    A real coach would’ve benched this qb, and wanna be offensive coordinator by now.

  108. Brooks4Prez Says:

    If I was at the game I would take off my bucs shirt/jeresey/hat and throw it at the players as they exited the field. What a sorry azz bunch of players. This is a direct reflection of lovie Smith.

  109. RastaMon Says:

    Lovies boy McCown sucks DONKEY…lucky Evans didn’t blow out his knee….coming back from that sky loop ball

  110. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    The only two positions on the whole team that Lovie improved on over last year’s team is Kicker, and Mike Evens!

  111. cmurda Says:

    Sad, but true Idaho

  112. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Josh McCown is the gift that just keeps on giving. He gives 3-and-outs to opposing defenses, and he gives BUCS fans headaches, heartburn and hangovers!

  113. RastaMon Says:

    Worse than the Bucs expansion team in 1976…WORSE

  114. Rob Says:

    Ronde is hilarious ripping the Buc offense and zone defense. Tell it like it is bro. Go Bucs

  115. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    On a side note. Ronde finally seems to be getting the hang of it. From a technical standpoint this is the best game I’ve heard him call. He seems far more relaxed and comfortable.

  116. BuccoDav Says:

    12 years in the league and McClown looks like he’s never played the position… maybe he can bulk up and play guard???

  117. buccinfan Says:

    I just seen captn fear didnt even want to wear his bucs gear

  118. sho nuff Says:

    do what you do Bucs and lose….we need the first ove all pick

  119. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    “maybe he can bulk up and play guard???”

    He’d get a ton of holding calls Buccodav just iike he hangs on to the football too long.

  120. Mdc1965 Says:

    Bucs offense aka The Delta House, total yds….0.0

  121. Brooks4Prez Says:

    15 total plays by this group the Bucs calls it’s offesne…..15 plays, Z-E-R-O total yardage. What a disgrace.

  122. Simpleasthat Says:

    Packers over 200 yards offense
    Bucs 0

  123. Jughead Says:

    holding on the first play…….just pitiful

  124. Jughead Says:

    holy moly, a first down…amazing!

  125. BuccoDav Says:


  126. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Have we thrown the ball on first down even once?

  127. Soggy Says:

    our run is stuffed

  128. gatrbuc17 Says:

    With the time that McCown has to throw the ball do you guys really think Winston or Mariota would win games for us???????

  129. Another J Says:

    It only took 27 minutes to get a 1st down! Things are looking up.

  130. Max Says:

    Loving that poor Ronde is doing the game today. You can just hear the major frustration in his voice.

  131. Jughead Says:

    disagree with Ronde, that was a bad call…….

  132. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    We gotta bring VJax back next year.

    Evans still has a lot to learn. Although that last interference may have saved an INT.

  133. Architek Says:

    Just think draft and maybe Lovie gone.

  134. Max Says:

    Wow, how ironic…forcing the ball to your WR playmakers is making a difference. Man, Arroyo is so over his head.

  135. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    I don’t care what anyone says about what the Bucs should draft. The Bucs need a FU@!#$G Quarterback in the worst way, excuse my language.

  136. Max Says:

    At gastric…agreed.

  137. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    And a OC really bad!

  138. Max Says:


  139. lurker Says:

    you had it right the first time, max.

  140. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Doug Martin goes into beast mode but comes up looking like a mini beast.
    Yeah the line got NO push.

  141. gatrbuc17 Says:

    Johnny Manziel is 3 of 8 for 32 yards.

  142. Another J Says:

    Holy crap we converted fourth and 1

  143. Architek Says:

    Take Lovie with Johnson and Collins.

  144. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I’m torn in that game. We need the Browns to win to help our weakness of schedule stat against the Titans. OTOH if the Panthers win it means the Saints will be forced to play hard against us next week.

    Personal tiebreaker. My son lives in Columbus and is a Browns fan. So go Johnny go.

  145. Another J Says:

    No sooner than Rhonde gave McCown a compliment for be being mobile…He gets Sacked love it!

  146. BuccoDav Says:

    You just can’t stand there that long.

  147. Buccfan37 Says:

    Fire them rusty cannons, a FG.

  148. gatrbuc17 Says:

    If McCown comes back out in the Second half then I KNOW that Lovie is trying to tank this one

  149. P'cola Buc Says:

    We may not be a winning team next year so…..if you have the opportunity…draft high a QB……have him on our roster as we build for the future. As we grow to become mediocre our draft position will fall and we will be sorry we did not draft that high QB when we could have.

  150. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Ronde has been beating the drum about how winning today could help us for next season. I do agree that Lovie is not playing to lose, simply his normal playing not to win but playing not to lose. He gives conservative new meaning.

    But there is absolutely NO excuse to not play Glennon other than he’s trying to make sure MGM doesn’t get injured and damage his trade value.

    Seriously. Can there be any other reason to not give Glennon the chance to do what McCown clearly has demonstrated he cannot?

  151. gatrbuc17 Says:

    Lol St.Pete.
    Im just saying that JF was not ready to play like JOE thought he was. Glad as Heck we didnt take him

  152. finishers Says:

    Put Glennon in I’ve seen enough of MCsuckass!

  153. Dave Pear Says:

    I just read an article that said the Titans were seriously considering a trade with Chicago for the Ebola Patient Jay Cutler.
    Hard to believe.

  154. lurker Says:

    can’t believe lovie sucks so bad…his personnel decisions suck too!

    in lovie we suck

  155. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Did you see the halftime highlights? Johnny Football hurt running the ball.
    As Gomer used to say..”Surprise…surprise…surprise”.

  156. aj Says:

    They’ve decided Glennon is not the guy. There is no reason to play him. It’s Jameis and a bunch of lineman in the draft.

    DQ is having his best day. Good for him. He obviously does not have the explosion in the knee to play end anymore. But he is turning into a nice rotation player at tackle.

    The defense as a whole is playing great right now. But, three and out McCown and they get hung out to dry again.

  157. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    OK guys…nobody realistically expects Jameis or Marcus to come in and turn this franchise around next year. However we don’t have enough QB talent to keep either of them on the bench and work on their learning curve.

    How do you all see our QB lineup next year. Say we take one of the Heismans.

    We can’t play McCown…he’s just Gawdawful. If we trade Glennon that almost forces us to throw the Heisman into the fire too soon. It can work out but it’s frightening.

    So what…Jameis/Marcus starter…McCown backup? Or do we try and get another journeyman to replace McCown in that situation?

  158. Alexstotle00 Says:

    3rd down collapse coming soon?

  159. gatrbuc17 Says:

    @St.Pete…………… I was laughing when I saw them taking him to the locker room. My wife was laughing as well

  160. Massimo Says:

    At what point does McClown get benched? What more does Smith need to see before benching him?

  161. gatrbuc17 Says:

    St.Pete…………………….IF we do take one of them then they will start whether they are ready or not due to our QB situation. That is why I hope we wait another yr or so. We are not ready to compete Outside of the NFCS and that is the sad truth

  162. Dave Pear Says:

    I’m still convinced that Glennon lost Lovie’s trust when he went on local radio on a Tuesday afternoon and announced to the world that he had been benched.
    That totally goes against Lovie’s philosophy of saying only what the NFL forces you to say. So I think Glennon is being punished for his transgressions.

  163. lurker Says:

    i’ve seen the bucs take mariota #1 overall by mcshay, who said winston is a possibility. then the titans take winston #2.

    also read today the browns’ gm is enamored with mariota and might not be sold on hoyer/manziel. the browns have 2 mid first rounders (incl. buffalo’s) and would need to give up next year’s #1 to move to #1 this year.

    i still don’t think we should trade the pick. but this is better than the philly trade…and we still might blow the opportunity for the #1 pick yet.

  164. Jughead Says:

    way to come out of the tunnel fired up guys

  165. DB55 Says:

    Mccoy who? Lmao

  166. DB55 Says:

    About to start the game but can’t lie my pleasantly shocked and amazed.

  167. Jughead Says:

    this drive will end the game

  168. buccadawg Says:


  169. lurker Says:

    draft one of the qb’s and put glennon in to start next year until after the bye. move mccown to qb coach. i believe arroyo is off to college or canada.

  170. DB55 Says:

    Nice first drive

    Ja smith

  171. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Walter Football has a compendium of mock drafts, at last check 82 different mock drafts.

    About 30 have us taking Mariota about 5 Jameis, but if you do the math you see that’s only about half. The other half go with Gatrbuc and bucnut and the crowd that wants to hold off On QB. Leonard Williams DE is the next most popular top choice. That scared me because I can see Lovie wassting a pick on a DL.

    Pick one of the Heismans or get a boatload of choices. Do not waste the pick on a defnseive player.

  172. Matt Says:

    Guys.. we…are…trying…to…lose… Period. Glennon will only hurt his trade value by playing. I believe it is understood that McCown is to stink it up so we can secure the #1 spot.

    Defensively we are getting a lot of reps in so the players get a feel for the system next year and I see steady improvement in the last quarter of the season.

  173. RastaMon Says:

    Draft…We have so many needs ….that a 1st round QB won’t address…I want to trade down twice in the 1st round accumulating picks this and next year….with a new HC of course…

  174. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Hey we have the Pack right where we want them. We’ll play great, take them into OT and then find a way to GIVE them the game. Our draft position is secure.

  175. lurker Says:

    i go to walter football closer to the draft. even though they are “mocks”, i do put more stock in some of the big names than the average joe with a blog. i don’t like bleacher report just for that reason.

    i so hope the glazers overrule lovie’s impulse pick.

  176. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    What’s with the Pack throwing so much on first down? Don’t they know that’s against the rules in RayJay?

    BTW Has anybody counted the number of times Rodgers has gone under center versus the shotgun? Mariota anybody?

  177. buccadawg Says:

    Bucs defense is playing nfl football the offense on the other hand isnt even playing up to peewee level.l hope the new OC can build a better a better one.

  178. Ed Kerber Says:

    The D is actually pretty good. Tampa-2 in all its splendor. The offense should be called the Tampa–Deuce.

  179. Matt Says:

    Bowers looks pretty darn good at 3 technique doesnt he? McCoy may be overrated….He ia quick but what lineman have been doing is letting him shoot a gap thsn just shoving him on his side creating big holes. At least Bowers is staying in his gap and not allowing big running lanes.

    I would prefer us to trade back for a kings ransom of picks but I would not be against us taking Williams. Put on the Arizona game and tell me you don’t want that guy on your team. He is Richard Seymour 2.0 with a quicker first step. He would be a great strongside DE and would not allow the tackle to peel off on a combo block allowing our LBs to roam freely.

  180. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Goldson gets away with another helmet to helmet shot on Kuhn.

  181. Another J Says:

    The defense is playing lights out lately. I’m glad the offense is doing their part to secure our draft pick!

  182. Buccin cane Says:

    If we had anything that looked like an nfl offense we would be a totally different team this second half of the season……WAY TO PLAY D!!!!!

  183. "TheKevin" Says:


    Dude shut your dumb stupid mouth.

    Every analyst on tv says McCoy may be the best in the league and you come on here and say he’s overrated.

    Your a f in idiot.

    Go clean your room you miserable fu ck

  184. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    screw trading down. When is the last time the Bucs had the number one pick? Anyone?

    I thought so.

    Take a QB and hope for gold. It will make us a contender for a decade if we strike the gold.

    Yes, we need oline. But we can fill that need with the other picks and free agency. People wanting to trade down? They must be happy with mediocre football. Because that is what we’ll have.

  185. "TheKevin" Says:


    Your stupid.

    And your ignorance is a shining example of why you should just shut your
    Stupid mouth.

    What an idiot you are

  186. Another J Says:

    94 yards of offensive today…
    How is McCown better than Glennon?

  187. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Let me add…if the Bucs trade down and either Mariota or Winston end up being great, everyone of you suggesting a trade will blame L&L for passing on him.

    Hypocrisy at its best.

  188. Buccin cane Says:

    This is the worst Effin offense in the history of the NFL

  189. Skyline Crew for Mariota or Winston Says:

    Put Glennon in

  190. "TheKevin" Says:

    @buccaneer bonsai

    Your right these idiots in here all a bunch of stupid idiots that shouldn’t be breathing my air will blame l&l for whatever they do no matter what.

    Pick a qb they complain
    Trade down they complain

    It doesn’t matter what the bucs do the air stealers will rear their idiotic heads to complain because their lives are miserable

  191. Another J Says:

    They should play the Benny Hill music every time that McCown touches the ball.

  192. lightningbuc Says:

    Lovie, not Marcus Arroyo, brought Josh McCown here to be the QB.

    Lovie, not Marcus Arroyo, gutted the O-Line to bring his own in.

    Lovie, not Marcus Arroyo, drafted ASJ and Charles Sims in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, when everyone knew they needed O-Line help.

    This offense sucks because of Lovie, not Marcus Arroyo.

    Arroyo is just a scapegoat. You can’t make chicken salad out of chicken crap.

  193. JW Says:

    I am sorry but Lovie is F**king clueless to continue this misery with a NO THROWING player like McClown… Notice I referred to him as a player because he is the farthest possible to even be referred to as a QuarterBack… I am disgusted, though I realize our offensive line needs serious help this jerk has missed receiver targets so bad he’s not even in the same Zip Code as the designated target.

  194. Barry Says:

    Smith is a boob

  195. Another J Says:

    Arroyo shouldn’t even be in the kitchen.

  196. foghead407 Says:

    I feel bad for mccown our oline is horrid.

  197. Patrick in VA Says:

    Well, we’re seeing what we needed to see. I thought moving Dotson to LT would help the whole line. Not the case. The defense is rolling. Not fair to the d how bad the offense is. I can see us drafting all offense again. We need some young studs on defense but our needs on offense are that glaring

  198. Soggy Says:

    Kuun reminds me of alstott

  199. Another J Says:

    I’ve heard people say that Glennon couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn, Well now it’s very clear that McCown couldn’t even see the barn, let alone hit it!

  200. Barry Says:

    Do you think Lovie and McCown take showers together?

  201. P'cola Buc Says:

    It hurts to be a Bucs fan….but I for one will not long term give up on them. Just the fact that we are here says volumes about our loyalty!

  202. Barry Says:

    How do you all like Joe’s Manziel? #SteveDumbDumb #ThePolishPutz

  203. Buccfan37 Says:

    Pick in place. The Saints can’t gain anything from beating the Bucs next week. 1st home win?

  204. Soggy Says:

    thats game, The only time the Bucs have gone winless at home over an entire season was in 1976, wow..

  205. Barry Says:

    How do you all like Joe’s Manziel? #Adolph #ThePolishPutz



  206. lightningbuc Says:

    I always look forward to Brandon telling us how much better the Bucs are this year without Schiano and how improved they are. Polish that turd, Brandon!

  207. Patrick in VA Says:

    Glad it’s working out the way it is. We’re seeing good things to build on with the defense. We can expect them to pick up Sicily where they left off next year. They’re not screwing up our #1 pick chances by winning. This offense is thoroughly being dominated, but we knew they sucked on offense. It’ll be addressed this offseason

  208. P'cola Buc Says:

    Do you remember the good old days? We once were a 4-12 team (sigh)!!

  209. Destinjohnny Says:

    1st pick baby!!!

  210. tgreg Says:

    “We were a 4-12 football team” Love that quote.

    Not this season. Lovie is a moron

  211. Buccfan37 Says:

    In retrospect this season can be titled ” Lovie’s Offensive Display”.

  212. Brooks4Prez Says:

    All this talk aboput Mariotta and Winston, who are you kidding. Lovie will trade the pick and Glennon to Chicago for his boy Cutler. When that happens I am done with this team until Lovie is gone.

  213. finishers Says:

    I don’t feel bad for MCSUCKASS at all ,get the ball out fast and act like a NFL QB, we have no slants or dump off plays even if we did suckass couldn’t hit them anyway!

  214. Another J Says:

    With the 1st pick of the 2015 NFL draft the Tampa Bucs select: It sounds good already!

  215. Jeagan1999 Says:

    62 minutes from the #1 pick!

  216. Brooks4Prez Says:

    I hope i am wrong about my last post but it suits Lovies Modeus operandi.

  217. bucrightoff Says:

    The Packers offense is playing on cruise control and they have 430 yards of offense . It’s still way too easy to move the ball on this defense.

  218. Soggy Says:

    did you see the 2002 champ sail on the ship it is just about

  219. Buccin cane Says:

    Just some irony here guys….they just showed a shot of mckown with the captain “C” on his chest….lol what the hell were we thinking

  220. P'cola Buc Says:

    If Lovie really wants us to hate him more, all he needs to do is play lights out next week and ruin our draft pick for next year.

  221. Dave Pear Says:

    The “Pewter People Greeters”.
    I still like that nickname for our Offensive Line.
    It has a ring to it.
    Like Minnesota’s Defensive Line used to be the “Purple People Eaters”.

  222. Another J Says:

    Arroyo can officially put in his two weeks notice.

  223. bucrightoff Says:


  224. Soggy Says:

    Now that was FUNNY

  225. lightningbuc Says:

    Any coach who is brought in to replace a fired coach, and then subsequently makes the team worse, should be fired as well.

  226. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Our offense has reached new highs in lowness!

  227. Another J Says:

    There’s the pick thanks Josh!

  228. Dave Pear Says:

    McCown gives us the beat chance to win…the first round draft pick.

  229. tgreg Says:

    McClown gives us the best chance to win. Right Lovie

  230. Buccfan37 Says:

    Quit Joshing me, you’re making me laugh.

  231. buccadawg Says:

    This o line is the worst i have ever seen on any level of football what really scares me is i hope Lovie is not thstbad at player

  232. lightningbuc Says:

    Another J,

    Why all the Arroyo hate? He’s not the one throwing the ball or playing offensive line. No one could coordinate this group of untalented misfits.

  233. lurker Says:

    when will lovie say “we are a 2-14 team”?

    this is atrocious.
