A Bad First For The Bucs

October 27th, 2015


Yes, there is no question that Sunday’s nut-kick of a game turned on one play.

One play that easily could have been saved. One play that would have all but sealed a Bucs win.

That was the successful onside kick by the Redskins. It caught the Bucs both out of position and asleep at the wheel.

Want to feel even worse about that play? Consider this gem shared by the TV broadcast crew and Rick Tandler of RealRedskins.com.

The onside kick recovery was the first in the NFL this season; teams were 0-24 trying to kick onside going into Sunday’s games.

The Bucs can go to bed at night knowing they were the first team this season to be victimized by an onside kick.

Fun times, Bucs fans. Fun times!

    A successful Onside kick is better known as Kin Geri kick!

    We lost because we couldn’t score 7 from 2nd and goal from one foot!!!”

    Two unsuccessful running plays and a scared chicken$hit, gutless, ball-less…..pansy a$$ field goal……

    The worst part is it came at a very predictable time too, and the Bucs were so unprepared the kick could have gone landed at the 50 and the Redskins still get it. Should have been totally prepared for it to come. They still could have recovered of course, but they were expecting a kick deep.

    That play has nothing to do with the coaching, that is completely on the players. Lol. Coaching has nothing to do with where they line up or making sure the ball is kicked off before running back. If schiano and Dom wouldn’t have drafted Lansanna we would have beat the deadskins.

    Let’s hire Jim leavitt before he goes to UFC. Word on the street is that schiano may be the next HC for the U.

    We lost because are defense sucks the offense gave em a lead and they got cocky even though most are idiots who can’t follow directions.

    Of course, the Bucs would be the first team to allow an onside kick this season. Surprised? Nobody should be, really. If you needed more proof that this team just oozes incompetence and lack or preparation, there you have it. Did they even practice an onside kick recovery? Because it sure looked like they didn’t. And whose fault is that? Who sets the practices, who decides who practices what? The rest of the season is gonna be “fun”. I’m quite sure the Yucs will continue to be the protagonists of the NFL… as far as pathetic teams are concerned anyway.

    Please be true. Please don’t hire Butch


    I forgot about Jim Leavitt. He can coach.

  8. Buccfan37 Says:

    The coaches didn’t issue a heads up for the possibility of an onside kick? Nobody expected it? At all? Unbelievable! No really believable with this team and coaching. I hope Leavitt does not go to UCF, revenge motive against USF.

    I really am not as upset about the onside kick as everyone else. Yea, it was the first sucessful attempt in the NFL this season, but even great teams lose a surprise onside kick at times.

    Besides, they still had to drive half the field to score another TD. Defense should have bowed up. But they didn’t

    That happens. But what is worse is that Lovie went for the last 2nd field goal.
    Try for the touchdown and only 2 things can happen. one you score and seal the game or, you do not and you make them drive from the 2 yard line. It is much tougher to start inside the 5 than inside the 20. Much less options. Next, you leave them with driving for a tying field goal. Notice the word tying.

    He is a terrible coach. Terrible in every phase. of the game

    Oh no! Caught by surprise on a SURPRISE onside kick! Who cares? The defense should have done their damn job. #firelovie #siegethebillboards

    It was not a predictable time for an onside kick. No one typically attempts an onside in the third quarter. It was a surprise onside, and it worked for them. It was well timed and well executed. Not much the bucs could have done differently in that situation. There is no one to get mad at on the bucs side for that on side kick. The redskins made a great call and it paid off.
