Report: Cam Newton Out, Derek Anderson In

December 10th, 2014


It sure looks like the Bucs will square off Sunday against the fourth-best quarterback in the NFC South, Derek Anderson.

A new report says he’ll be replacing Cam Newton, whose truck flipped over yesterday, an even that landed him in the hospital overnight.

Jason La Canfora, of CBS Sports, just churned out a video that explains it’s definitely Anderson, who carved up the Bucs in Week 1. Anderson completed 24-of-34 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns.

Dear Lovie Smith, please, don’t let Panthers tight end Greg Olsen torch you again.

The La Canfora video is below:

    No matter. We will loose in splendid fashion regardless.

  2. bucrightoff Says:

    If Lovie’s D gets carved up by Derek Anderson twice in one season, that has to be grounds for instant dismissal. Wow that would be bad.

  3. Another J Says:

    Josh McCown makes Derek Anderson look like a pro-bowler.

  4. Patrick in VA Says:

    I think we have a much better chance this time around. It was a tight game last time with our defense falling all over themselves. They’re doing much better now so hopefully they play really well and it’s a closely contested and a heartening loss.

  5. biff barker Says:

    Joe, any news on who will start at MLB?

  6. mac Says:

    Why do I have the sick feeling in my stomach? I hope the Bucs don’t get competitive all of the sudden and try to win on Sunday… It would suck not getting the first pick just because deuche bag Can Newton wrecked his monster truck…

    Who am I kidding? The Bucs suck so bad it really doesn’t matter… Anderson will put up more points than McClown or Beaker…

  7. RCH Says:

    I think we win this game Anderson is getting thrown in the middle of the week without a lot of reps once Cam was back in the line up plus the locker room is pretty shocken up over this.

  8. DallasBuc Says:

    Bucs chances at winning this week just went up significantly. Don’t kid yourselves, these guys see this as an opportunity to get a desperately needed win. They don’t care about draft picks.

  9. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    With the kitties still in the playoff hunt, they are going to do everything they can to win…minus possibly Cam.

  10. Nick2 Says:

    Joe what are you talking about??? We want to get torched all day. I am over these quarterbacks that we have. To think that Mike Glennon or whoever will finally lead us to victory so we can finish 3-13 or 4-12 and bounce us out of the Mariotta/Winston draft position makes me want to run to the Skyway Bridge!!!!! Tank it for Tampa please Santa Clause dont let us win another game this year!!!!!!

  11. Brian D. Says:

    Welllllllll back to the middle of the top 10 picks it is…this defense is wayyy better than they were in Week 1…and the Panthers offensive line has been a disaster.

  12. Architek Says:

    Please lose out!

  13. gatrbuc17 Says:

    Are we going to be the First Team in NFL History to lose to Derrick Anderson TWICE in one season

  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    There is no way the coach or players will tank….and you can best believe the QB especially will be doing their best.
    You don’t have to root for us to lose….we are perfectly capable of doing that.

    It is really hard for me to believe that many of you actually sit there watching the game hoping for us to fumble or get intercepted……Evans dropping a touchdown pass…..keeping LVD, GMC out of the game….

    I’d rather think that you are seriously rooting for us to beat the stinking Panthers and knock them out of the playoffs…..but, if we do lose…you’d be OK with it because of draft position….

  15. HawaiianBuc Says:

    We are going to beat Carolina. We would have beat them with Cam, but now even more so. Our defense is not like it was in week one. We are also going to beat New Orleans to close the year out. That’s just kind of what we do. I will never cheer for us to lose, but this year is closer than I’ve ever been to doing just that.

  16. MIssingSchiano Says:

    IF by any chance you are wrong HawaiianBuc, that would mean Gregory “Lombardi Incarnate” Schiano would have a better record than Lovie”I love men named Josh” Smith. But I do hope you are correct, I am going to the Packers-Saints game and I will be cheering loud, long and hard for the Bucs to prevail. I think we will get either Winston or the Oregon Kid (whats his name?….Macaroni?) GO BUCS

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    With the Panthers trashing the Saints last week, I think this is yet another Bucs loss. Carolina is still in the division race. The game will be close. The Bucs draft pick should be safe, for all the lose out fans.

  18. HawaiianBuc Says:


    I really don’t like to compare coaches by how bad they are. I didn’t like to compare Schiano to Morris, and I don’t like to compare Lovie to Schiano. I’m no happier with 4 wins than I am with 2. We sucked last year, and we suck this year. Schiano sucked last year, and Lovie sucks this year. Lovie deserves another year for 2 reasons: 1) The Tedford situation. We don’t know how much that submarined our season, but I believe the answer is quite a bit. 2) As long as the coach hasn’t lost the locker room, I don’t believe any coach should be fired after one year. Schiano shouldn’t have been fired after one year, and neither should Lovie. I do, however, think it is more than fair to strip him of his GM duties (at least partially). Obviously that’s not going to happen, but it probably should.

    Good question. He may have won twice against a division opponent during his Pro Bowl year in Cleveland I believe. Just to lazy to look up

  21. No One Says:

    Derek Anderson beat Baltimore twice that year.

  22. Dan A Says:

    He already beat us once
