Frustrated Over Losing Ways

August 2nd, 2015


Bucs fans far too often wanted to — or did — wing beer bottles at TVs all across the Tampa Bay area on football Sundays. galled that their beloved Bucs became such a doormat for the NFL in recent years.

It’s gotten to the point that neighborhood cats flee in fear when they hear a Bucs broadcast in the background. Well, Bucs fans, if it is any consolation, the Glazer family is equally peeved and feels your pain.

Speaking to the Tampa Bay pen and mic club this afternoon just before practice at One Buc Palace, Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer admitted he is “frustrated” over the recent fortunes of his team, now 30-70 in its last 100 games.

“It’s hard, it’s hard,” Glazer confessed about the wear and tear of the losing and the losing and the losing year after friggin’ year.

“You try each year to put it all together and get all the right pieces and some things don’t work out. That happens not only for us but for a lot of teams in the NFL.

“It is frustrating to watch. As much as we [also] own the team, we are fans. We want to win. So, one of the things we have seen with our ownership is, this is a quarterback-driven league so hopefully with the quarterback, we can have success for a long period of time.”

And there you have it. Joe’s been saying for months it is all about “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston. And now you have it straight from the lips of the co-chairman of the Bucs himself.

Rock on, Jameis.

    It be nice if nfl network showed the practice on tv instead the Cincinnati Cubs!

  3. Buccfan37 Says:

    The glazers are all in with Jameis. No more excuses, This is the Bucs time to make the NFL, the teams and fans sit up and take note that this aint the old Bucs anymore.

    My season tickets came in the mail this week. I first became a season ticket-holder when the waiting list for tickets was a mile long. Now, a season ticket holder has their pick of where to sit. This may be the last season for me, unless….the Bucs are serious about winning. It will take more than Jameis for us to win this year. Don’t load everything on a rookie’s back – the veterans have to come to play also.

  5. Seminole Bill Says:

    and……….those “new” uniforms are still ugly

  6. Stevek Says:

    I am still hoping we can sign a FA cap casualty: DE, Evan Mathis, etc.

  7. Dick2111 Says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but I only see ONE common denominator over all those losing seasons.

  8. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    We’ve heard the same crap every year. Action speaks louder than words.

    They need to let their sister have a go at running things…she can’t do worse.

  9. LakelandBuc Says:

    It all went down hill when they did nothing to keep our best players, Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Warrick Dunn, Derrick Brooks, Keyshawn Johnson, Simeon Rice, Thomas Jones etc. And it didn’t help when they fired Tony Dungy then trade two 1st round picks for Jon Gruden, and eventually firing him.

  10. Sam Says:

    Well at least they got rid of Johnson. He was just carted off with knee injury. Wish him well but glad they let him go

  11. Tampa Tony Says:

    Stop hiring the wrong coaches and the losing stops

  12. BucFan20 Says:

    Sounds to me like he just admitted they tanked the season!!

  13. The original "Kevin" Says:

    I dont understand…..if lovie knows the glazers know….everybody knows than why didnt they trade glennon? I mean hes not gonna sign here as a backup…..why not trade him instead of letting him walk for nothing????4th or 5th rounder…SOMETHING!!!!

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Well I went RJS in 2013 with my This Sucks sign. Hung it over the tunnel and Schiano looked right up at it.

    I’m really considering if this season goes in the crapper, that I might make a new sign that says YOU GUYS SUCK! and hang it over the tunnel for the veterans to see. Not that it will do any good but they need to know how pissed off some of us are with their efforts from time to time.’

    Stay tuned, might get might picture taken again with the new sign.

  15. Couch Fan Says:

    Because as much as some of you hate to hear it, Glennon is more valueable than a 4th or 5th round pick to us. Not sure how many times it needs to be said.

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    “might get might picture” and I’m not even drinking today.

  17. zombienunya Says:

    why did gator-buc get banned? hes cool and needs to be reinstated. GO BUCS

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    zombienunya …he’s always banned in case you didn’t know that. Been banned a long time ago. He just circumvents the site with a VPN and a new name. Can’t blame him for trying though living all the way out in Montana.

    Couch- just stop saying it because it doesn’t matter. Some folks have the ears, hear the sounds, read the words, etc. but the message doesn’t register.
