Super Bowl Open Thread

February 1st, 2015

bill belicheatAhh, nothing like watching a couple of great football teams. This won’t be a typical Bucs game this evening.

Joe’s got a hard time envisioning Seattle getting beat by the New England Schianos.

Joe doesn’t expect the Patriots to be able to run the ball effectively. However, Joe does expect big plays out of the Patriots defense, and they have what Tampa Bay doesn’t — a winner at quarterback.

Should be a fun one. Bang your comments all game long right here.

    Hope she’s standing on the sidelines.

  8. MadMax Says:

    Blount over breastmode!

  9. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’m an NFC fan who hates the Patriots. Sick of seeing them. Show them who’s boss, go Seahawks!

  10. Howard Cosell Says:

    Good to see Blount, Revis, Wright and Bennett playing in the SuperBowl.
    Did I miss anyone?

    Great post Luv…..TRENCHES!

  14. DB55 Says:

    Pressure! Love it!

  15. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Yes Sirrrrrrr

    Pressure Bust Pipes

  16. DB55 Says:

    Did revis just sack Wilson?

  17. mark2001 Says:

    Revis, Bennett, Blount? Wow, what kind of an anemic organization would give those guys up for little to nothing? A losing one, unfortunately. It almost rivals the Bo Jackson debacle.

  18. mark2001 Says:

    LUV…just goes to show what you can do when you make those high round draft picks cost, instead of drafting over rated one year, at best, wonders. BTW, I’m not taking about Evans or McCoy….but wow….just shows how pitiful the “rock star” and company were.

  19. Jeagan1999 Says:

    NE playing a great game so far! Short passes, a little power running and a strong and active defense…kinda like the Bucs circa 2002!

  20. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Soooo, What was wrong with Blount and Bennet that we couldnt keep them on our roster??

  21. MadMax Says:

    Schiano and Dom…..those were HUGE misses by them.

  22. David Says:

    Blount has a bad attitude…
    Keep in mind the Steelers threw him out too after the Patriots threw him out the first time. Pats only brought him back because they needed a RB for the playoff run.

  23. ChanEpic Says:

    Bad Attitudes, David, is exactly what this team needs. Choir boys belong in the choir.

  25. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Go Bucs! Oh wait.

  26. Buccfan37 Says:

    Seahawks should run over the Patsies in the second half.

  27. MadMax Says:

    Bulaga will cost too much…

  28. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    I would love to cook Katy Perry some breakfast.

  29. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    Glennon could have wrung up more points against the Pats than Wilson…..

  30. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Glennon had Seattle on the ropes…perhaps if the Bucs beat the Seahags, Schiano would still be here.

  31. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:


  32. Seminole Bill Says:

    ….someone tell why again we got rid of Lagarette Blount?

  33. mark2001 Says:

    87 The Packers also had Seattle on the ropes and lost it. But admittedly, everything that could go wrong for the Packers in the last few minutes had to for them to do so.

  34. MadMax Says:

    …..his toes werent on the line.

  35. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    mark2001 …I say GB lost that game on the INT with 6 minutes to go.

    The GB defender intercepted Wilson and instead of running for more yards, he fell to the ground like he thought the game was over or something. He had yards in front him and possibly could have set his team up for another FG.

    I bet that guy feels like a fool right now.

  36. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Pressure Bust Pipes!

  37. JoshFreeman Says:

    How many former Bucs are playing tonight? I saw at least 5-6

  38. Eric Says:

    Nice coverage Island.

  39. DB55 Says:


  40. Eric Says:

    That mobile QB does come in mighty handy.

  41. DB55 Says:

    Revis is hot gabbage.

  42. 1976Buc Says:

    @ ChanEpic thank God someone else has that opinion. Thank you sir! WE need someone with a little spitfire in their urine. We’ve been playing like we have to squat to pee.

  43. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Brady’s body language on the sidelines is not looking good.

  44. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Man if the legion of boom is playing hurt imagine when they’re freaking healthy!!!

  45. Eric Says:

    IMO Michael Bennett is the MVP.

  46. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Bennett was perhaps the biggest mistake in Bucs history.

    Who freaking wants head case Blount? How out there does this moron have to be to get cut after scoring FOUR TD’s in a critical playoff game last year.

    He’s bad news bigtime!!!

  47. Jeagan1999 Says:

    A lot of similarities between Mariota and Wilson. If anything Mariota is even taller, faster and more mobile than Wilson. I wouldn’t be upset to see Bucs trade down for multiple picks, but I’d love to see Mariota doing what Wilson does in Tampa!

  48. Eric Says:

    But the practice squad receiver will probably get it.

  49. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I was thinking the same thing about Bennet. But DL never get that award and Wilson has been huge since that TD at the end of the first half.

    But Bennett would not be undeserving if he won it.

    How did somebody look at Daquan Bowers and Michael Bennett and select Bowers? That person should NEVER work in the NFL again.

  50. Eric Says:

    Not over….

  51. cmurda Says:

    Good game. Seattle better watch themselves getting too conservative. During the TB Lightning’s glorious STanley Cup run in 2004 John Torts coined the phrase “safe is death”. That saying applies in football as well.

  52. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    I like how Brady is not afraid to try and throw into tight windows even though he knows it might get picked off.

    Hmmm reminds me of someone else that is eligible for the upcoming NFL draft.

  53. Eric Says:

    Could be OT…….

  54. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Tom Brady the surgeon.

    Let me see, that I.V.
    Here we go – time to operate
    I’ll pull his indsides out, pull his insides out
    And see what he ate

    Like a surgeon, hey
    Cuttin’ for the very first time
    Like a surgeon
    Here’s a waiver for you to sign

    Weird Al Yankovich

  55. Eric Says:

    A great highly competitive passer also comes in handy….

  56. Skyline Crew Says:

    Brady doesn’t have the fire though. Doesn’t yell on the sidelines. Terrible leader. Not a leader like Winston is.

  57. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Waiting for Blount to fumble on the goal line.

  58. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Skyline Crew…are you serious???????????????????????

    Brady doesn’t yell on the sideline????????????????

    He does that ALL the fact he gets in his receivers faces a lot when they drop his passes.

    OMG please don’t please don’t tell me you’re serious.

    Have you ever seen Tom Brady play?

  59. Eric Says:

    That drive reminded me of Winston v. Auburn.

  60. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    How many times have you screamed at the TV when one of our WR’s drop crucial catches?

    Would you like to jump through the TV and yell at the WR for dropping it?

    Winston will do that for you.

  61. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Mariota = Goly gee, you dropped the ball again…ho hum = Freeman.

  62. BucFan20 Says:

    Will this be a Glennon Wilson Replay?

  63. Skyline Crew Says:

    He’s just sitting on the bench the past quarter. Drinking his bottled water.

  64. Skyline Crew Says:

    I’d rather have Mariota. It’s the quiet ones that are the dangerous ones.

  65. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Russell Wilson is far from quiet.

    Josh Freeman was a quiet one.

    Perhaps you’d like him back.

  66. MadMax Says:

    omg the luck seattle has….

  67. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Al Michaels does it again…”HE DID WHAT”…lol

  68. Eric Says:

    Pats beat by another miracle catch?????

  69. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    I’ve seen Brady pull one of his WR’s by the face mask and holler at them for not running the right route.

    Seattle is damn lucky!

  70. Skyline Crew Says:

    Awesome catch

  71. MadMax Says:

    oh yeah!

  72. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Wow! Great game!

  73. lurker Says:

    lmao brady had some lucky catches against them…

  74. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Called it!

  75. Skyline Crew Says:

    Why pass? Lynch all day. Stupid call.

  76. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Run the freakin ball!!! smh

  77. Skyline Crew Says:

    Was that Arroyo calling that?

  78. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    After the miracle catch I told my wife it’s going to get picked off in the end zone.

  79. MadMax Says:

    oh the look on sherman’s face! HAHA!

  80. Eric Says:

    Omg what a great game!

  81. cmurda Says:

    Im stunned. That may have been the worst call in history. You have Beast back there with a timeout. Im dumbfounded. Wow.

  82. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Blount gets a ring. Now retire Brady you whiny bitch.

  83. Skyline Crew Says:

    Hey Bennet..nice play

  84. lurker Says:


  85. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Game over.

  86. MadMax Says:

    stupid poor losers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  87. lurker Says:


  88. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:


  89. MadMax Says:

    Wow Bennet is an a$$hat!!!!

  90. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    What a bunch of pu**ies.

  91. mark2001 Says:

    McCarthy had a brain cramp two weeks ago….only fitting that Carroll would have one and do the same thing on the play call today.

  92. Skyline Crew Says:

    Well Blount Revis and Wright get a SB ring.

  93. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    I was rooting for neither, but I picked the Pats to win.

  94. Howard Cosell Says:

    Seattle mad, bro.

  95. Skyline Crew Says:

    Dumbest call of the year.

  96. BucFan20 Says:

    Mankins just got a HUGE kick in the NUTS!!

  97. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    You’ve got Lynch and you’re on the goal line with 25 seconds to play. What do you do? Pass.

  98. Skyline Crew Says:

    I was rooting against the Pats.

  99. SteveK Says:

    I bet Logan Mankins is wishing he took a pay cut this preseason.

    What a great game.

    When is the next time Buccaneer football is played at that level and quality?

  100. Howard Cosell Says:

    Seattles OC was was temporarily possessed by the ghost of Marcus Arroyo.

  101. INDYbucsfan Says:


  102. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    I know what that was all about. That was Seattle trying to show us that Wilson is better than Brady. This team thinks like that. Like Sherman thinks he’s better than Revis. They always want to be show offs.

    Good. You lost, now it’s time for Brady to hang up his cleats.

  103. Eric Says:

    The great passer won…..

    Amazing stuff.

  104. BucFan20 Says:

    Welcome to Buc Ball 101 Seahawk Fans.

  105. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    SteveK…you can always throw in our SB DVD. I did about an hour before the game today. It’s a SB tradition at our house.

  106. Eric Says:

    Seahawks aren’t too classy in defeat.

  107. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    And yes I cried again when Barber intercepted McNabb…

  108. Jonathan Says:

    Seattle had total control of winning that game and instead of handing it of the lynch who has wrecked havoc against New England all day you pass it. Get it intercepted and lose the most important game of the year. If I was Russell Wilson I would have told my OC to suck a D!ck and I would run it with lynch. I would have at least felt better if they lost because their line stopped him twice than give up the game winning interception. OK now that I am off my rant. What makes me more pissed off how many buccaneers were in the super bowl this year. wright, REVIS, castillas, and Bennett. did I miss anyone. TALIB is in Denver if my memory serves me right.

  109. Eric Says:

    I’m kinda happy the super lucky catch didn’t decide it.

  110. Jonathan Says:

    87 you are awesome for playing our SB video each year before the big game. But is it not bitter sweet watching it? Since it has been 14 years since we have even been close to the big game again. I think I would cry like barber did after his interception everytime I watched that game. 🙁

  111. Dave Pear Says:

    I’d be willing to bet that Josh McCown is still crying after watching that Budweiser commercial.

  112. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    My in-laws live in Seattle. They are devastated right now.

    Since they’re in-laws I’m a happy man.

  113. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Jonathan …eh it’s something I waited a long time to see. Never thought I’d ever see that day.

    After they won it. I looked at my wife with tears in my eyes and said “well honey I can die now.”

  114. tbaybuc Says:

    This was truly one of the hardest games to watch. I don’t think ive ever seen one that i equally wanted both teams to lose at the start so much. Something about Seattle’s arrogance got me pulling for NE though as the game went on. Alrighty then…..on to the combine now…..

  115. Walter Says:

    What a stupid play call

  116. Skyline Crew for Mariota or Winston Says:

    I can’t get over how much of a dumb call that was. Pathetic.

  117. Pat Says:


  118. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    @Joe…the season’s over now. We had no Jameis Watch today and I’m starving!

    Feed me Joe.

  119. rayjay1122 Says:

    Well, that sucked. Great game but did not end the way I hoped for. I would have ran the ball if I were calling the plays. Yes, now it will be all about the Bucs and who we will draft. Funny thing is that the Pats are the champs but the Bucs will be talked about longer…..about 3 months longer.

  120. Bawlmerbucfan Says:

    Somewhere Schiano is smiling…..he’s saying, “see, I’m not the only coach who teaches players to bust threw the line in the victory formation.”

  121. mikeh Says:

    @ 87 im sure your starving for some jamies you probably would rather cook breakfast for him no! lol anyway did u see those two QBACKS that’s a true QB not some freshman with alot of growing up to do. besides other issues. I know Im from new England and dude neither QB was picked in first round! oh well LMFAO!!!!!!

  122. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Bawlmerbucfan….Schiano’s also somewhere saying to himself see the Pats are full of Rutgers players.

  123. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    mikeh…your ummm irrelevant keep laughing all the way till draft day.

    BTW I from N.E. too. Wtf does that matter? I hated that shytehole state.

  124. Java Says:

    Once Lovie is fired maybe the Bucs will be in this game again

  125. Eric Says:

    Faking to lynch and have Russell run it in would have been the call.

    Don’t throw the thing!

  126. mark2001 Says:

    You always put the ball in the hands of your best player, especially in the situation they are best at. The Packers put the ball in Lacey’s hands with 10 yards for a first down, rather than counting on Rodgers, the best QB in the league to make one pass….the Seahawks took the ball out of Lynch’s hands at the part of the field where he excels, against a tired defense…and they threw the ball instead. Hard to figure…seems to go against the Lombardi “gospel” of professional football.

  127. 87ForJameisNOMariota Says:

    Redshirt sophomore btw. So technically a JR.

  128. mikeh Says:

    DUDE I seen games at the old sambraro when u was sucking mama, no pun intended. so whatever!

  129. mikeh Says:

    @ 87 NO I know you are a true bucs fan as am I just saying you don’t need to rush at some kid that has the issues jameis does but that’s like talking to a wall with some of you! the kid is not ready for the NFL! JMO!

  130. ufcguy Says:

    Haha go suck on it Seattle. Im glad to see sherman look lije he was gonna cry. They deserve this loss

  131. mikeh Says:

    @ UFCGUY- I hear ya! cocky mo fu ers lmao!

  132. 77bassguitarist Says:


  133. Mike10 Says:

    And just to be frank.. We won’t have a winning QB next year from this draft, so we’re clear.

    Blount on the tonight show by the way! Lol I feel like im on crazy pills right now

  134. feelthepewterpower Says:


  135. The True Buc Fan Says:

    After watching tonight’s game, the thing the Bucs need to worry about is Dan Quinns dirty defensive antics. He is the crap Falcons head coach now, and those sore loser, take everyone out tactics fight, just made me go, yup that’s exactly why I hate Seattle. Well now we play him 2 times a year. Also we learned today that coaching makes Champions. We just watched arguably the greatest coach of all time win his 4th championship. Lovie Smith is a man that can bring this team to this level, to judge him on 1 season just shows the idiocy of posters here. I do not see many holes. I’m not a gm, but if I was this is what you do. FIRST OFF, extend David, second sign Pierre-Paul. Every other signing needs to be for depth. In the Draft, Take Winston #1, Than draft Obglinue, or whatever his name is from A&M because he will drop from his act tear in bowl game. Guy is a stud LT and will be a 2nd round steal. 3rd draft Winstons LG, I forgot his name, but he has a 2-4 round draft grade on him. It gives Jameis comfortability. Than rest of draft take best player available. I think by doing this all holes get filled.

  136. IStillbleedOrange Says:

    I say to hell with the clock. Make the decision right now, choose the QB, announce the pick, sign the SOB and get a playbook in his hands right the hell now. Then let the media circus gather around Tennessee for a change.
