Back In The Playoff Hunt

November 1st, 2015

JameisthrowatlantaYou better believe it, Bucs fans.

When you’re 3-4 and 2-1 in the division, and playing in a weak conference, you’re in the playoff hunt.

That’s where the Buccaneers sit today.

Tampa Bay is 3-4 with a 2-2 conference record.

Sure, the Bucs still sit in the NFC South cellar, a half game behind 4-4 New Orleans.

But next up in Tampa are the 4-4 Giants, a very beatable team that coughed up 52 points to the Saints today. Then come the Cowboys to Tampa, minus Tony Romo.

No. Joe’s not pulling victory bong hits at the Georgia Dome. The Bucs are still a subpar football team. But the record keeps them in the hunt, and with America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, on their side. Anything is possible.

    Unless this d gets 4 turnovers every game they won’t stop anyone. Eli threw 6 tds today,6!!!!!!

    Next week could get ugly

    ODB and Dez Bryant vs “scrubs in our secondary” makes me want to put my wang in “Lovie is Dog Poo’s” Mouth!! AND THAT’S NOT A GOOD THING!!(He bites)

    Heck yes we are still in the playoff race.

    I feel a run coming on.

    If we can get a few guys back Jameis can light some people up down the stretch. He is oh so close to doing that now but there is a whole lotta more coming.

    And I expect our defense to improve like it did in the second half last year.

  5. BucMania Says:

    With no weapons on offense to help Winston and D that gives up passing yardage away at an alarming rate it won’t take long for teams to totally abandon the running game and just pass against us we may not win another game. Eli threw 6 tads against Saints. Imagine what he could do against our awful secondary.

    Is your obsession with putting your nuts and wang in guys mouths greater than putting Lovie’s nuts in your mouth? I’m not sure but you mentioning one or the other in every post

    Im still waiting to see back to back wins before i start saying crazy things like were in the playoff race.

  9. Eric Says:

    Eli threw six but their defense gave up 52!

  11. Rico Says:

    Oh Joe. Stop the silliness.

  12. Buc15 Says:

    Playoffs? Playoffs? You talk in’ about playoffs? How about we talk about stopping 2 drives in a row 1st.

  13. Tampa Tony Says:

    Eric-they gave up 52 to Brees, who is a legend and has weapons and a aggressive coach. Lovie will continue to handcuff Koetter and keep it conservative unless his d gets multiple turnovers

  14. Buccfan37 Says:

    The NFC does look like a weaker conference overall and a reasonable argument can be made that the Bucs remain one of the weaker teams in the conference. I would still rate them fourth in their division, a division looking like one of the stronger groups in the NFC. I think with or without Lovie that the Bucs will continue to improve going forward.

  15. LJ'sDaddy Says:

    Love ya Joe…this is crazy talk. Playoffs?

  16. JAB83 Says:

    OneLove not sure what you mean or say BUT……

    LMAO for sure!!!

  17. JAB83 Says:


    I think you have made yourself clear… As a Fan of Depression I would recommend that you stick to your vows of NOT WATCHING THE BUCS TILL LOVIE IS FIRED!!!!!!!

    In a few years you will feel better having stayed away…. Take it from me…. I had to do it from the time they fired Gruden till now!!!!

    Lovie is an offensive minded coach and is doing AMAZING THING with our team offensively!!!!

    If not for the fact he spent all that time in his basement figuring out the league has changed I would think he was a defensive coach past his time!!!!

    Please have my lunch h ready…. Not sure if the menu is already set but I would like to request in advance….

    Those little Cuban sandwich deals from Publics that I eat till I’m sick…. Some good draft beer like a Yuengling or something…. Some CRAB LEGS and butter would be nice too and how about a bottle of Captain ASJ Morgan for good measure….

    Just saying….

    Its as Simple as That!!!

    Really it is!!!!

  19. JAB83 Says:

    Hey BucMania….

    We beat The Apostates (saints) do you not remember… If suddenly the Saints are an amazing team… Then cool…. WE BEAT THEM!!!!

    imagine…. The Tweetie Bird Falcons where a better offense then the Giants!!!! Perhaps we have a chance to beat them….


    LOVIE YOU ANYWAYS…. Stay tuned playboy… I will chew you a knew one and poop you out like the 87 dog poos I have digested prior…

    Is it just me or is jab a huge d bag?

  21. The Rockstar Says:

    This Buccaneer offensive looks good, playoffs or no playoffs. Its the best its been since I don’t know when.

    It’s much better than the Josh Freemen days.

    Until today this defense reminded me of 1976.

    Hello 1977.

  22. BuccsFanatical Says:

    for u guys saying what do u think Eli and OBJ will do to us or Romo?
    ummm yall said Exact Same thing about the Falcons, did they Tear Our D up, yes they did but they kept the points off the Board and did yall even Notice when that BaFOON Lovie finally put Banks on Julio Jones His production went way down?? and Dal will be Without Romo in that Game I bet our D Line Gives Castle Hell, we do have a Legit shot at Going on a Run Despite the Loser on the Sidelines, Jameis is starting to call His own Number and these Young Guys are Rallying Behind Each other. and I do believe with what Has Happened to Kwon and the way these Guys Rallied Behind Him with pick this D up Gong forward so don’t be Surprised if we roll out 4-5 Straight off this Game….

  23. FortMyersDave Says:

    Beat the Giants and then perhaps playoffs can be mentioned in the same sentence as the Bucs. Those losses to Houston and DC are beginning to look a bit huge now that the Bucs are 3-4 and Lovie has to own both of those as his D choked away the DC game and his signing off on O’Dea going with Brindzda over Barth cost the Bucs any chance of winning that game vs a bad texan team….
