Will The Buccaneers Listen To Lovie?

September 13th, 2015

Remember the recent comments of Alterraun Verner and the head coach

Yeah, Joe wants a win so damn badly today, but Joe’s also looking for something just as big.

Will the Bucs show up and play for Lovie Smith, something the head coach this week dared to admit they didn’t do last year?

It was a stunning revelation by Lovie, “Last year the crowd showed up. We didn’t,” he said.

And it’s got Joe flashing back to the words three weeks ago from Alterraun Verner on SiriuxXM NFL Radio.

Rich Gannon: What’s been the message from Lovie, really going back to your first OTA, what is going to be different about this team in 2015?

Alterraun Verner: I think the physicalness. That’s something he’s always harping on. He wants us to be physical. I think you saw plays on Monday night, physicality on both sides of the ball, from Doug Martin running the ball, to the offensive line pushing out, to some of the big hits you’ve seen on defense. I think that’s one thing he’s been trying to instill since the beginning. I think that’s going to be a little bit different, a lot more physical play by us.

So did the message get through?

Will the Bucs show up and punch the Titans in the mouth up and down the field today?

Joe’s hopeful, but if the Bucs crap out, as Lovie said they did last year, then Team Glazer might need to have a chat with the head coach.

    If Lovie tells the Buccaneers to win, I don’t think they will listen

  2. Stanglassman Says:

    Winning all the home games and having a quick start to all the games are two other emphasis that he concentrating for this season that are important.

  3. Dave Says:

    America’s QB Mariotta will have a field day against the…Yucs…….Winston will prove how awful he really is in the NFL…. He WILL BE BENCHED BY HALFTIME AS HE WILL FAIL TO COMPLETE A PASS……..

    Meanwile I will be watching a real game at 4 between the Bronco’s and Ravens

  4. Buc1987 Says:


    @Dave…no one here cares what you think.

    Jameis Winston will have a better day today than Mariota, because I think the Bucs D is going to show up today as well as the o-line.

    See you at the game!

  5. Bucs or Gtfo Says:

    @Dave how pathetic is your life that you have to come on here to be a negative d*** everyday?

  6. slowbuc$813 Says:

    @Dave u bum the game u care to see has nothing to do with the bucs

  7. Buc4life88 Says:

    Joe chill with all the negativity. At this point just wait till after the game. Give Lovie a break until 7:30pm when the games over. Quit throwing around all this doom and gloom. It’s a new season and we are undefeated so far. We will never be successful if we keep changing coaches. That’s not a recipe for long term success. Or else change your site to JOEBUCSCRITICS.com instead of joebucsfan. I’m tired of us losing like everyone else …but I’m still going to the game today to support my team!!! Let’s go bucs!!!

    For other posters. Is there more than one Dave here? Maybe the other Dave had an initial after his name. I could swear I saw a rational post from someone with a first name of Dave.

    For THIS Dave and any others if the shoe fits….

    American writer Harlan Ellison delivered one of my all time favorite quotes.

    I’ll be watching from far away Michigan, back in a few weeks. Drink one of those overpriced brewskies for me and enjoy you guy.

    Two days in a row for you to celebrate. Golson is not Fameis but damn…Dalvin Cook is the best RB I’ve seen in a long, long time!!! That kid is just sick.
    Could there be another Heisman in store for a Nole?

  10. Tampa Tony Says:

    Go Bucs!!!

    It’s week 1 time for optimism and a lil positivity. I’ll be negative at 7 pm is they lose

  11. Dave Says:

    Rumor has it the Bucs are deflating footballs to help Winston throw as he is color blind and likes to throw to different jerseys…… I just hope after this big loss he does not go down to Howard Avenue after the game nd assault a young lady

  12. vegabuc Says:

    Dave get a Damn life dude

  13. Joseph Mamma Says:

    He wants them to be physical? There football players, what are they supposed to be, spiritual? Meaningless coach talk bs. If we get outcoached again this year, like many times last year we’ll suck.

  14. LargoBuc Says:

    Dave, im sorry you get enjoyment from trolling online. I wish you could find some sort of joy and fullfillment in your life.

  15. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Heading to RJS from the metropolis of Oviedo, Go Bucs!!!!

  16. GhostofSchiano Says:

    @Dave, were you not loved as a child? Or did you do time and loved too much?

  17. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Bucs Lives Matter

  18. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Why even give him acknowledgement?

    As to the topic…those that don’t listen will be gone. Simple as that.

    The whole season doesn’t ride on this one game though.

    Even so…our defense is going to have to step up. They are healthy right now, and as the season goes on and injury prone defensive veterans go down, the offense will have to step up.

    For now though, it is mostly defense while the offense develops.

  19. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Which isn’t to say the offense will do nothing.

  20. milenko Says:

    What if I told you that, if you ignore the dumbass he will go away? Don’t feed the troll(s).

  21. Dave Says:

    I have as much right to post here asd you fatties

  22. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Yes you have that right and we have the right to use the scroll wheel and ignore you.

    The political blog where I participate grew so overwhelmed with trolls…people continually begging DNFT…Do not Feed the Trolls. Finally that site gave us an ignore function and we no longer had to wear out our scroll wheels.

  23. BuccoDav Says:

    Would you people please stop responding to the trolls?!? We learned this in grade school. If they don’t get the attention they crave they will seek it elsewhere.

  24. Dave Says:

    Look at you lonely fat biys sticking up for each other on a website, so cute…… I guess since you are all outcast and obese and do not fit in w the pretty people of tampa you hide behind your pc in your crappy apartments watching the Bucs game on your 20 inch tv, lmao…… So sad to be Buc1987 or any oh is fat friends on here
