    Rally the troops JW3 and get that W. 6-5 here we come!

  2. Buc1987 Says:

    59 more yards for Dougie to get to 1000. Run Dougie run. Get the win too, lol.

  3. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    So…I just took a look at the schedules. Falcons (one game ahead of us) play the Panthers two more times. We play them only once more, in the last game.

    They play us two more times as well, and this week is their bye week.

    So…if we win today, we will be second place. Even if we lose, it’s looking good for us to claim the second place spot in our division by the end of the season.

    If we win 4 of the next 5 games (which is very, very possible given who we face), we may just develop enough to beat the Panthers in the last game. Maybe. They have a very easy schedule from here out as well.

    Which doesn’t seem fair given what they did last year.

  4. Buc1987 Says:

    Is this BucBonzai the homer I’m detecting?

    “We bout to get on these mofos arse”..

  6. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @1987

    1,000 yards would be nice…but not new contract nice. I want to see him reach 1,500 yards rushing. 2,000 yards total.

    Martin had 1,454 yards rushing and 1,926 total yards in his rookie year. It’s not unreasonable to expect him to top that after 4 years of experience.

  7. Aristotle Says:

    Let’s just worry about today! Let’s beat Colts, come on Martin get the team Rolling!!!

  8. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Buc1987

    I’m always a homer. 😛

    A homer supports his team. I’m proud to be one.

    Of course, you are kind of the pot calling the kettle black…BucHomer1987. 😉

  9. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    When the game starts, I try to ignore this thread.

    It’s become more of an “Open Hate Thread” than anything else. Sucks the joy right out of watching my team.

  10. Buccfan37 Says:

    Rollin rollin rollin, Keep them dogies rollin Rawhide. Move ’em up, head ’em up, count ’em out, ride ’em in Rawhide.

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    lol

  12. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Buccfan37

    Loved that show! (showing our age)

  13. loggedontosay Says:

    LETS GOOOO BUCS!

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    I just want Dougie to continue to fight hard for those yards, which in turn helps our team win. Don’t care if he doesn’t like the name, because no one can come up with a better one.

    So again ….run Dougie run..run wild you lil hamster!

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    Buccfan37….also one of the best parts of the movie The Blues Brothers.

  16. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    We only have one more loss to give and still be solid for the wild card.

    We need to win today.

    Carolina is the “wild card” in our schedule. If they are undefeated going into the 16th week they’ll be soooo incredibly motivated in front of the home folks. I just think we need another year and one more great draft to reach Carolina quality.
    They are still the better team.

    However….if the Panthers lose a game before then I go with Joe’s theory of the Panthers resting their starters…they’ll have literally nothing to play for. Then we have a good shot at winning that game.

  17. Walter Says:

    @StPeteBucFan

    Do you think Carolina would wanna do us that favor though if it means we sneak into the playoffs? I kinda doubt it, but who knows

  18. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    OMG

    3 of the four Fox guys pick the Bucs!!! Don Riggles’ comedy bit even joked about how weird it might be to see the Bucs in the playoffs.

    We are relevant! It’s as simple as that!

  19. Buccfan37 Says:

    We are the pirate cowboys today, Florida style. It’s time to corral the Colts.

  20. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    @Walter

    I certainly take your point…if Carolina thinks we are the dangerous wild card and they could put a stake in our heart you might be right.

    I’m hoping Carolina is so confident and I also believe that the wild card will not be decided until the final week.

    Who knows eh…but fun to be speculating about these things!

  21. D-Rome Says:

    Thankfully Dave Diehl is not calling the game with Dick Stockton.

  22. JAB83 Says:

    MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTETION PLEASE!!!!

    Remember Trolls are waiting at the ready to turn the remnant Fans of Depression lose!!!!

    Let’s keep them chained down and not hose up the message board with negative vibes!!!

    The 12th Man is in the house boys and girls!!!!

    LETS BE REAL.

    RAYS UP, BE THE THUNDER AND SIEGE THE DAY!!!!

    I want a shutout for the BUCS

    31-0

    Sacks and turnovers galore!!!

  23. Buc1987 Says:

    SPBF…let’s see how fun it’s going to be speculating after today. Let’s go 6-5 and win 3 in a row, then I’ll start talking the p word.

  24. Soggy Says:

    Lets go Bucs 3 in a row.. OH YA…

  25. Aristotle Says:

  27. Buc1987 Says:

    Aristotle…have to do better than that.

  28. Buc1987 Says:

    I’m just going to call him Dougie.

  29. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    On a side note, if I was a gambling man, I would want whoever calls the coin flip to be with me in a casino. Seems they nearly always get the flip.

  30. Jbeachbuc Says:

    I see todays game being a grind. Both teams come in winning two Str8.

    GO BUCS !!!!

  31. Reelbuc Says:

    Let’s go bucs!!

  32. mixxx31 Says:

    That man came to play!!!
    #30

  33. mixxx31 Says:

    Big Man work GMC

  34. JAB83 Says:

    Anybody else feeling a turnover coming???

  35. MadMax Says:

    nice sack GMC!!

  36. Soggy Says:

    were getting pick apart CMON D

  37. "TheKevin" Says:

    10 yards of penalties on the first drive

  38. MadMax Says:

    and then he gets a penalty smh!

  39. Tampa Tony Says:

    Gonna be a close game

    Not playing Mark Sanchez this week

  40. JAB83 Says:

    Sack fumble!!!

  41. Buc1987 Says:

    Nice D!

  42. Buc1987 Says:

    Now it’s time to attack bring out JW and his toys.

  43. Dave Says:

    Realist
    He hasn’t been here since the game last week.
    It’s pretty pathetic and shows you what kind of loser he is.

  44. JAB83 Says:

    Game on!!!

    Reverse the trend…. Let’s trade them field goals for TDs!!!

  45. cmurda Says:

    Our defense has got to stop this crap. We get no pressure but remain in the zone. It’s Hasselbeck for God sake. Get some pressure on this dude. That was way too easy of a drive. Short passes over the middle all day every day until this line gets pressure.

  46. Buc1987 Says:

    Anyone know if ASJ is playing?

  47. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Dave

    He’ll claim it was because of the holiday.

  48. D-Rome Says:

    Bucs D played well. Not great, but to be out there for 7 minutes and only give up a FG is a good stand.

  49. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @cmurda

    They actually DID get pressure. It just isn’t consistent pressure.

  50. mixxx31 Says:

    Quick strike here guys

  51. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Later people! Watching the game!

  52. MadMax Says:

    time for a big pass Jameis!

  53. MadMax Says:

    Good job JW3!

  54. Soggy Says:

    our pitch back play seems to never work

  55. MadMax Says:

    Yes! 1st down.

  56. Soggy Says:

    CMON TD TIME

  57. cmurda Says:

    I want to see a healthy dose of Martin as well but Koetter come on dude. Mix in a play action.

  58. Dave Says:

    Loving Dougenator!

  59. cmurda Says:

    JW missed it. He threw it outside when it should have gone inside.

  60. cmurda Says:

    Still a good answer by the offense. Our D needs to step up because I’m confident our offense will be there all day.

  61. Buc1987 Says:

    cmurda I’ve been whining about play action too. Jameis sells it extremely well. They need to get these big wr’s to run over the middle routes off play action.

  62. Bucnut2 Says:

    Good opening drive, nice answer

  63. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice play by Keyes

  64. Biggun Says:

    Nice hit by keyes

  65. Soggy Says:

    nice hit, to bad he did not fumble the ball..

  66. JAB83 Says:

    TurnOver!!!!! GMC sack fumble!!!

  67. Buc1987 Says:

    7-0 Vikings!

  68. cmurda Says:

    GET PRESSURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  69. cmurda Says:

    Stop the zone crap if our D Line is incapable of pressure.

  70. Buc1987 Says:

    14 – 0 Texans

  71. Tampa Tony Says:

    Soft zone crap is garbage!!! Middle of the field is ALWAYS open

  72. cmurda Says:

    3rd and long, penalty. 3rd and long, first down. Nice flop Fleener

  73. Buc1987 Says:

    Flop!

  74. Tampa Tony Says:

    Flags are gonna kill this team

  75. cmurda Says:

    Our defense is soft as a baby’s bottom. Lovie is getting owned. Step the eff up softies. Matt Hasselbeck is tearing this weak ass zone up. Pathetic, Lovie.

  76. cmurda Says:

    I hope Fleener is going to be okay. He hit the ground hard on that flop.

  77. Soggy Says:

    3 flags already… CMON MAN

  78. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another drive by Colts

  79. @FamousBroy3434 Says:

    YOU CANT THROW A FLAG ON THIRD DOWN BECAUSE A GUY TRIPS AND ASKS FOR IT. HUGE SWING. THE REFS ARE THE BIGGEST REASON THE BUCS MISS THE PLAYOFFS IF THEY DO

  80. Buccfan37 Says:

    Bucs can’t cover crap. The Dolts did beat Denver.

  81. Buc Neckid Says:

    Cant cover much better

  82. cmurda Says:

    Hey Jude isn’t looking like the real deal

  83. Bucnut2 Says:

    our defense not looking good

  84. Buc Neckid Says:

    Where Banks?
    The Doghouse?

  85. Tampa Tony Says:

    No flag? Surprised

  86. Bucnut2 Says:

    great job by defense there

  87. cmurda Says:

    There we go. I give the D credit for not breaking.

  88. Soggy Says:

    texans 14 over saints

  89. mixxx31 Says:

    Three points. From 1st and goal. I call that a win.

  90. Bucnut2 Says:

    Evan Smith getting beat like a drum

  91. Soggy Says:

    lets spread the ball around a little better

  92. Buc Neckid Says:

    Nice Block by Shepherd

  93. cmurda Says:

    Diek, that’s predictable my friend. 2nd and short is playaction time dude. Come on man.

  94. Buc Neckid Says:

    Evans Just took himself out
    Hurt?

  95. cmurda Says:

    EVans and JW nowhere near the same page on that one. Lets go offense.

  96. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW lookin good

  97. Bucnut2 Says:

    The pass blocking is horrible

  98. Tampa Tony Says:

    Who cares about the other scores if this d can’t stop a 40 year old QB?

  99. Soggy Says:

    5 different targets last week lets keep doing that

  100. Soggy Says:

    thats 4

  101. ColoradoBucsFan Says:

    @Tony dudes just giving us some info no reason to be a a ss.

  102. cmurda Says:

    another penalty

  103. Soggy Says:

    alright thats 4 targets

  104. cmurda Says:

    Brate with the hands baby

  105. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did Evans hang out with Manziel last night or something?
    Geesh, He needs to get his head on right today

  106. mixxx31 Says:

    CB84 is a man!!!

  107. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    ASJ who?

  108. Buc Neckid Says:

    Crap!

  109. cmurda Says:

    What a crock of crap. Another g dam penalty

  110. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another Penatly!!!

  111. Buc Neckid Says:

    Martin did not run that route right

  112. Tampa Tony Says:

    Good teams don’t beat themselves

    This team won’t be good until they clean up the penalties

  113. Soggy Says:

    5th flag cost big

  114. Bucnut2 Says:

    The pass protection is lacking

  115. cmurda Says:

    Thanks for the flags boys. Keep costing us points. Lovie has no discipline on this team. TD taken off the board from a useless hold. I swear the refs hate us.

  116. Aristotle Says:

    Damn Penalty…..

  117. @FamousBroy3434 Says:

    I CANNOT WATCH THIS LEAGUE

  118. Bucnut2 Says:

    For the record, i thought that holding call was suspect

  119. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Until Lovie gets this team to stop all the stupid penalties every game will be a struggle to try and win.
    There killing themselves.

  120. cmurda Says:

    A flop and a hold at the goalline which never gets called. What’s next refs? Oh, I know, leaping. Remember that beauty playing the Colts at home on Monday night. The same game that an onside kick never hit the ground and the refs shammed that one too.

  121. mixxx31 Says:

    3 and out right here

  122. JAB83 Says:

    Everybody focus on turnover here!!!!

    Pick six!!!

    Sack Fumble!!!

    Bring it!!!

    Simple as That!!!

  123. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    @Bucnut

    Agree that was a horrible ticky tack call.. It’s been said that the refs could call holding on every play if they wanted…they sure picked a great time to hose us.

    Now we need a takeaway or somebody needs to get to Hasselback and blast him good…he’s freakin 40 and his body won’t be receptive to much punishment.

  124. Buc Neckid Says:

    Time for a Takeaway

  125. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    The good news is we’re turning Indy into a one dimensional team. Love us stuffing the run.

  126. mixxx31 Says:

    Get off the field right here.

  127. mixxx31 Says:

    LVD this is the money down. CASH OUT!!!

  128. Buc1987 Says:

    Our O is moving the ball against their D. Cut down on stupid penalties and were good.

  129. Soggy Says:

    BULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

  130. jugheadfla Says:

    One of the worst calls I have ever seen…WOW

  131. Buc Neckid Says:

    BS Call

  132. cmurda Says:

    Refer to my last comment on these refs

  133. Tampa Tony Says:

    Finally a 3 and out!!!!!

  134. Buc1987 Says:

    Almost picked!

    Were gonna get one of these suckers eventually.

  135. mixxx31 Says:

    Refs suck A$$

  136. King C Says:

    TE is allowed to move and re-set . Not the wrong call

  137. cmurda Says:

    That last call was hysterical. The refs are looking at each other like yeah the dude rocked back and it was a false start but we are ordered to call it against the Bucs.

  138. Buc Neckid Says:

    WTF?!?!?!

  139. Buc1987 Says:

    What?

  140. cmurda Says:

    P.I #13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Refer to my last 2 comments.

  141. jugheadfla Says:

    F these Refs….This is rediculous

  142. Buc1987 Says:

    HORSE COLLAR!

  143. Buc Neckid Says:

    Go #MuscleSlug GO!!!

  144. Tampa Tony Says:

    Go doggie!!! In your face moronic refs!!!

  145. cmurda Says:

    Dougie says “eff the refs”

  146. MadMax Says:

    Go Dougie!!!!

  147. Soggy Says:

    NO WAY BAD CALL on EVANS MADE RIGHT BY MARTIN

  148. ColoradoBucsFan Says:

    Wow

  149. lurker Says:

    wow, douggie

  150. jugheadfla Says:

    no horse collar on that run?

  151. King C Says:

    Bucs are playing well. No need to blame the refs

  152. lurker Says:

    no horse collar

  153. mixxx31 Says:

    This SH!T IS RIDICULOUS. Theses refs suck

  154. lurker Says:

    funny how evans is always lookin for a flag…

    the refs finally gave him one…lmao

  155. jugheadfla Says:

    @King C

    The Bucs are playing well….and these Refs are garbage!

  156. Soggy Says:

    CATCH

  157. Buc Neckid Says:

    This Sideline Ref is crazy

  158. Aristotle Says:

    Bucs vs Colts & Refs

  159. @FamousBroy3434 Says:

    IF THIS GETS CALLED INCOMPLETE I MAY STOP WATCHING ALL TOGETHER

  160. Buc1987 Says:

    These refs will say it’s not a catch.

  161. jugheadfla Says:

    it was a catch….but these refs won’t agree I’m sure

  162. JAB83 Says:

    If they ruled that incomplete 20 seconds needs to go back on the game clock!!!

  163. The Real Drew Says:

    These officials are SO TERRIBLE!!! Such an epidemic in the league.

  164. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Yes, horrible penalty called on that touchdown. We have all seen much worse on basically every single NFL play not get called. Where is the flag for the cheap shot on Winston’s knees?

    Shall I even go on this is getting ridiculous these refs are incompetent!

  165. "TheKevin" Says:

    How can these zebras be so bad?

    These refs are god awful pathetic. How do they have a job?

    Bunch of f ing idiots

  166. cmurda Says:

    If they even try to call this incomplete after review, it’s time to throw the protest flag to the NFL.

  167. lurker Says:

    he needs to not lay the ball on the carpet…catch but fumble…colts ball.

  168. Dave Says:

    Wow
    Bad holding call on the TD !
    Horrible pass int on Evsns called when it should have been on colts’ Davis !
    False start on colts called as offside on Bucs !

    I hate Bitchin about refs but those are so blatantly obvious it is ridiculous

  169. cmurda Says:

    He’s on the ground Lurker after being touched. You’re kidding right.

  170. Buc1987 Says:

    wow we got the call

  171. jugheadfla Says:

    holy shart…..after 5 minutes they got it right

  172. mixxx31 Says:

    How many blown calls is one zebra crew allowed to have before someone gets on the phone and tells them to know off the grab ass!!

  173. Dave Says:

    That’s scratch To a normal human
    Not a chance it is a fumble

  174. "TheKevin" Says:

    Lurker is an idiot.

    Posts stupid sh it every game.

  175. jugheadfla Says:

    Please troll somewhere else lurker

  176. Buc1987 Says:

    Now a challenge by the Colts. Like a soap opera.

  177. Dave Says:

    Lurker.
    That’s not a fumble. It’s a catch then He is down.

  178. BuccoDav Says:

    No fumble. He was down by contact before the ball came out.

  179. cmurda Says:

    Not so fast about them getting it right. Colts are challenging. This is a bad challenge and if the refs overturn this, we have serious issues

  180. JAB83 Says:

    Yeah ruling on the field stands… Nice play JW and ME!!!

  181. lurker Says:

    “Bad holding call on the TD !
    Horrible pass int on Evsns called when it should have been on colts’ Davis !
    False start on colts called as offside on Bucs !”

    1. was a legit call, but not always called
    2. davis was within 5 yards…evans pushed davis back, on the head, after the 5 yards
    3. the tightend can reset, as was stated

  182. jugheadfla Says:

    blow my balls lurker

  183. mixxx31 Says:

    Damn right

  184. cmurda Says:

    whew

  185. jugheadfla Says:

    Hell yeah!!!!!!!!!!1

  186. Aristotle Says:

    Cameron Brate my Hero!!!

  187. Clearwater Wes Says:

    OMG it went our way.

  188. StPeteBucsFan Says:

  189. MadMax Says:

    Yes!

  190. "TheKevin" Says:

    YES

    F U COLTS

  191. King C Says:

    This Brate kid catches everything!

  192. DoNUTS Says:

    TD!! BRATE! Go Harvard…

  193. lurker Says:

    yes i was kidding on the fumble, but not on rolling the ball out of his hands. why give the refs anything to question?

  194. cmurda Says:

    Yes! Should be 17-6 but whatever. Nice play JW and Brate. JW looking good. Very good.

  195. Buc Neckid Says:

    Brate is better than ASJ
    because ASJ cannot get out of the trainer’s room

  196. Aristotle Says:

    Harvard Representing!!!!

  197. BuccoDav Says:

    ASJ can stay in the tub. I’ll take the Harvard guy!

  198. cmurda Says:

    Nice job Barth

  199. mixxx31 Says:

    Ma! There’s that man again!!!
    CB84 you are my hero!!!

  200. Buc1987 Says:

    And Jameis just did the swagger jog back to the sidelines….uh oh Colts, look out.

    Us Noles fans know that swagger jog.

  201. Aristotle Says:

    Wtf Connor!

  202. MadMax Says:

    This guy Brate needs to be our #1 TE for good.

  203. jugheadfla Says:

    time to D up to end the half

  204. Soggy Says:

    BRATE there is one of our other weapon’s nice TD.. Bad Extra Point.. MAN O MAN..

  205. lurker Says:

    kevin, you are the useless douche that runs his piehole calling people names. don’t make me call your mom and get u kicked off the pc, again

  206. cmurda Says:

    Love it 87. Get that swagger going Famous.

  207. Buc Neckid Says:

    How does a Professional NFL Kicker miss an extra point?
    #BarthIsTheNewBrindza

  208. DoNUTS Says:

    Lurker I agree some of those calls were borderline.

  209. lurker Says:

    you little ninnies calling me a troll…lmao

    you silly little men.

  210. Bucnut2 Says:

    I sense a Bucs loss today. to much going against them

  211. jugheadfla Says:

    Jude just got ran over

  212. lurker Says:

    @jughead

    kevin’s already on your balls. that is his job, not mine.

  213. lurker Says:

    do not give up a td here…do not want to go in at the half 12-13

  214. Bucnut2 Says:

    Finally a colts penalty

  215. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Mark Cuban is going to be right, the NFL has become a really terrible quality product and it’s deterioration will only continue under Goodell. The goosed will be cooked soon. Besides the awful reffing the whole on field product too has become awful with all the rule changes.

  216. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bad play by Hasselback

  217. Soggy Says:

    NICE STOP

  218. lurker Says:

    need a turnover

  219. cmurda Says:

    Way to stop them D. I’ll take it. We have overcome the refs and Colts to a 6 point lead. If the refs would get out of the way, we are the better team.

  220. lurker Says:

    good stop…with help from the holding call

  221. Wombat Says:

    Can’t ASJ give out drinks or something useful, sick of seeing his face on TV. Brate is looking good again!

  222. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    They’ve been on the field for awhile…but some of the guys look gassed on the D.

    They are in a dome so it can’t be hot humid weather. Hopefully #3 can duplicate last week and start the 2nd half with a ten minute drive for SEVEN this time!!!

  223. King C Says:

    Defense is playing well
    Taking advantage of offense’s weakness- No threat of Hasselbeck throwing the ball deep

  224. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Only had the ball 3 times in the half and scored each time not bad.

  225. Buc1987 Says:

    Jameis has the swagger jog….all is good.

  226. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Need a long scoring drive like last week to start the 2nd half.

  227. lurker Says:

    the refs called some ticky-tack penalties, but they weren’t wrong

  228. Newbucsfan Says:

    oooooooohh! The tension is palpable

  229. Tampa Tony Says:

    Whew dodged a bullet

  230. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Just saw a highlight of Tyler Eifert making a good catch in traffic at the goal line and taking a hit and hanging on for the TD…yeah just like our own Brate!

  231. Buclife Says:

    Wrong Lurker they where wrong.

  232. mixxx31 Says:

    JW needs to run in the locker room and give the speech that Preacher did at halftime of the state title game in the movie Friday Night Lights!!!
    http://youtu.be/8CZ-ICxcEYg

  233. lurker Says:

    where were the calls wrong?

  234. ColoradoBucsFan Says:

    Lurker your right but this is a bucs forum so most people are biased.

  235. Buc Neckid Says:

    BUCS get the Ball to start the half

  236. mixxx31 Says:

    6 play TD drive coming out of halftime. BOOYAH!!!

  237. Newbucsfan Says:

    who will make the first turnover?

  238. FanOfBucs Says:

    30 minute, 37 yard td drive coming out of half for Bucs…

    GO BUCS!!

  239. ColoradoBucsFan Says:

    Lets go BUCS!!!

  240. Biggun Says:

    New stud….. CAMERON BRATE… to be continued….

  241. lurker Says:

    lol…and the flag parade continues…

    are we at a new record, yet?

  242. lurker Says:

    need a big play

  243. Buc Neckid Says:

    Ughhhhhh
    Three and Out (technically Four and out with the penalty)

  244. lurker Says:

    that didn’t go well.

  245. "TheKevin" Says:

    What a horrible opening drive bucs.

    Terrible.

    Thanks Jackson

  246. mixxx31 Says:

    We need to turn them over. Step it up D.

  247. Bucnut2 Says:

    The bucs look lethargic

  248. Clearwater Wes Says:

    D giving up the booty.

  249. cmurda Says:

    Big time hold by the Colts on the big play to Hilton

  250. mixxx31 Says:

    Where the hell is the hold on Gholston?

  251. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Call holding, refs

  252. lurker Says:

    really…smh

    let hilton go

  253. Buc Neckid Says:

    Liking A.Verner as the Nickel
    Smart
    But new position
    Could become Barber-ish

  254. Bucnut2 Says:

    our scheme does not look good

  255. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Lovies D not getting any pressure again.
    And that’s what it is based on.

  256. Bucnut2 Says:

    great catch

  257. cmurda Says:

    Our defense = gross.

  258. Buc Neckid Says:

    Great Pass and Catch

  259. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Perfect pass…great catch and good coverage…sometimes you just gotta realize they get paid too.

  260. lurker Says:

    wow, seriously

  261. Tampa Tony Says:

    This d is awful against competent qbs

  262. Buc Neckid Says:

    Pick Six Time

  263. Tampa Tony Says:

    What no penalty?

  264. lurker Says:

    hold to 3

  265. mixxx31 Says:

    So who all gets credit for that sack? Way to swarm.

  266. Clearwater Wes Says:

    The D only makes stops with the 12th man. AKA back of the end zone.

  267. Buc Neckid Says:

    Defense Bends
    but doesn’t break
    3 points again
    No TD = BUCS Defensive Victory

  268. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    D holds again. Nice job!

  269. Bucnut2 Says:

    The colts are sustaining drives every series

  270. tnew Says:

    didn’t break…. this and turnovers has been the key to the Defense recent success. Now we need a 10 minute drive

  271. mixxx31 Says:

    Some stupid posters in here today. D has held to 3 FG’s and some a$$ hats are still complaining. WOW

  272. jugheadfla Says:

    well, this went down hill in a hurry

  273. Buc Neckid Says:

    Got to throw that away rook!
    Where’s that swagger jog at?

  274. lurker Says:

    smh

  275. Bucnut2 Says:

    The line looks like shyt!

  276. cmurda Says:

    This predictable offense is getting stale. This is disgusting. Koetter has got to put the frigging ball in the air on 1st down.

  277. cmurda Says:

    Need Marpet back badly.

  278. Buc Neckid Says:

    That was another TERRIBLE series for the BUCS Offense
    Two to start the second half SUCKS!!!

  279. Clearwater Wes Says:

    They are imploding. It Looks like a loss.

  280. Bucnut2 Says:

    WE fall behind right here. Colts score a TD

  281. Tampa Tony Says:

    Credit their d for making changes. Offense needs to get aggressive

    Very predictable play calling

  282. cmurda Says:

    This is tough to watch with our O Line sucking wind and our defense stepping up only in our red zone. Lets go D, you need to force a turnover right now.

  283. mixxx31 Says:

    Turnover coming up

  284. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW looking like a rookie today

  285. Buccfan37 Says:

    Halftime adjustments are not working for Bucs.

  286. lurker Says:

    lol…still got a ways to go in the game.

    lovie needs to do something

  287. tnew Says:

    looks like a win to me. A tough one but a win

  288. Tampa Tony Says:

    Awful d

  289. cmurda Says:

    WTF defense is that. McDougald wtf are you doing

  290. jugheadfla Says:

    burned twice in a row

  291. Buc Neckid Says:

    Defense is getting gassed
    AND outplayed

  292. Bucnut2 Says:

    Game over. Let’s talk draft

  293. cmurda Says:

    All day. This defense is crap. Hasselbeck is owning this makeshift secondary

  294. King C Says:

    Alright we have a game

  295. jugheadfla Says:

    we can blame moore, but thats lovie’s turdly defense

  296. tb Says:

    Really we have been better in the 2nd half ,what’s going on

  297. Buc Neckid Says:

    And that is why you cannot miss an extra point

  298. lurker Says:

    really lovie…he do neither hc or dc well

  299. Bucnut2 Says:

    The good news is the missed extra point doesnt matter

  300. Wesley Says:

    Pathetic, WAY too easy, this secondary still blows!

  301. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    I mean they aren’t losing as much but the team itself still plays pretty poorly overall.

  302. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    We have stuffed the run. It’s time to start freakkng blitzing more…somebody had to get to Hasselback or he’ll just slice and dice us….no defensive secondary can cover against an experienced QB who has that much freaking time.

    BTW in the first half I saw Gholston double teamed and BOTH Indy players had fistful’s of shirt…why don’t they call that?

  303. Buc Neckid Says:

    Maybe Jameis needs to play from behind to get that Swagger Jog Back

  304. "TheKevin" Says:

    You can always count on the bucs to let you down.

    Typical as a bucs fan.

    Maybe after this loss you stupid as s morons will shut up about the playoffs.

    Idiots

  305. Bucnut2 Says:

    I say our draft needs are:
    1- pass rushers
    2- corner
    3- safety
    4- speed lost guy

  306. Bucnut2 Says:

    slot

  307. Bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s throw it

  308. "TheKevin" Says:

    So tired of seeing pitches to the corner for a half yard.

  309. Bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s take some chances

  310. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Sims reminds me of Pittman ten steps per yard.

  311. mixxx31 Says:

    Gangsta!!!

  312. "TheKevin" Says:

    Good throw that would be a td.

    O line sucks today

  313. jugheadfla Says:

    Drop

  314. cmurda Says:

    No call on the pers foul pushing JW out of bounds.

  315. Bucnut2 Says:

    Come on ME

  316. "TheKevin" Says:

    Lmao Michael Clayton strikes again.

    My god Evans. You suck as s

  317. Reckless Says:

    Ughhhh!

  318. cmurda Says:

    Dropsy Evans has returned.

  319. Buc Neckid Says:

    Evans Is Amazingly unreliable

  320. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Captain drops strikes again.

  321. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    How far down will FSU’s FG kicker fall in the draft? Sure wish we could get him.

  322. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice

  323. lurker Says:

    are we meant to not win?

  324. cmurda Says:

    Why the fcuk would you try to kick that with Barth. You’re a moron Lovie and I’m firmly still not satisfied with a Grade B coach.

  325. jugheadfla Says:

    really? that was a 15 yarder? wow……

  326. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    We’re losing our cool and the game. Will we ever learn about the damage of penalties?

  327. cmurda Says:

    JW throws it perfectly and instead of catching the ball high M.E. fails miserably. Dude is decent. Nothing more.

  328. Buc Neckid Says:

    Cmon!!!
    Really?!?!?
    That is STILL a BS Call
    Isn’t this a contact sport?

  329. tnew Says:

    worse than a turnover

  330. lurker Says:

    unbelievable…

    lovie needs to get control.

  331. Bucnut2 Says:

    Stick a fork in us, were done 23-12 on the way

  332. "TheKevin" Says:

    Good job bucs just hand the game over

    It’s A LOSS TODAY.
    THEY HAVE IMPLODED ITS OVER GAME OVER

    TURNING THE CHANNEL. 5-6. No playoffs I’m out. F off bucs

  333. The Real Drew Says:

    Oh good call refs, there’s just no room for minor shoves in this game.

  334. San Francisco Joe Says:

    Play calling is horrible today. RUN THE FRIGGIN BALL!

  335. Zbucs Says:

    Game over

  336. Bucnut2 Says:

    SFJ- you are stupid, we are getting stuffed running it

  337. lurker Says:

    where are all the people raving on evans being the best receiver in the draft?

  338. @FamousBroy3434 Says:

    Jackie Earle Hayley can’t do it by himself. Evans is terrible. He’s an absolute liability and is straight up costing this team wins. I have been all on the Lovie bandwagon lately but if your team is still committing these penalties and your ass isn’t doing anything about it ya gotta go. U can’t drop this game to a 49 year old with playoffs on the line when you don’t even turn the ball over. Just handing it to INDY!

  339. Zbucs Says:

    Poor play by both sides of the Bucs. Colts are better at this point.

  340. J-Maguire Says:

    These refs have already decided who is going to win and cover the spread. The Gambino family strikes again.

  341. Buc Neckid Says:

    No Takeaways today

  342. San Francisco Joe Says:

    Bucnut2. You must be 12 years old. Wtf are you talking about?

    Doug Martin: 13 carries – 92 yards

  343. KW Buc Says:

    Drops. ..ya, that sux, but the f’n penalties. …week after week, nothing changes. Ridiculous!

  344. lurker Says:

    hey kevin, why don’t you call yourself an idiot?

    i can feel the bandwagon getting lighter…lol

  345. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Mike Evans is a great bad receiver or a bad great receiver. One or the other.

  346. Bucnut2 Says:

    J-not the refs it’s us

  347. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bruce Carter cannot go down
    He will be the MLB while Kwon is suspended

  348. Zbucs Says:

    Defense not playing well, just ok.

  349. Buc Neckid Says:

    ASJ needs some Pom Poms

  350. ATrain Says:

    So a shove when the QB is out of bounds is a no call but a lineman gets pushed and its15 yards NFL better get these Refs under control and stop the no calls..

    LOVIE PLEASE MAKE SOME CHANGES… DOUBLE MELTON>>>>

    exact reason he is a bad coach.. No changes at halftime.. same BS

  351. Bucnut2 Says:

    STJF- 1- car 58 of those.

  352. J-Maguire Says:

    Our chances of winning are directly proportional to how much we blitz Hasselback. So far, we haven’t even tried.

  353. lurker Says:

    another 13 that is better than ours…just like the giants

  354. Zbucs Says:

    Lovie needs to fire these guys up. This is an important game.

  355. jugheadfla Says:

    is Millen blind? The ball clearly hit the ground first

  356. San Francisco Joe Says:

    Bucnut- Your point???
    If you haven’t noticed by now, our running sets up the pass. Without fail.

  357. ATrain Says:

    REALLY DA that hit the ground hahahaha

  358. BuccoDav Says:

    Mattypivs@pga.com Millen is an idiot.

  359. BuccoDav Says:

    Oops. Matt Millen…

  360. Clearwater Wes Says:

    I must have missed the transaction, I didn’t see that we re-signed Kyle Brindza

  361. lurker Says:

    funny how colts fans a probably b1tchin about the refs, too

  362. Tampa Tony Says:

    Missed field goals and bad defense with penalties will be the story of this season

  363. lurker Says:

    a td down…lets go bucs

  364. cmurda Says:

    Cmon JW and mostly Evans. The TD needs to happen now.

  365. Bucnut2 Says:

    My point is throw on first down, windows are larger, protection better

  366. Bucnut2 Says:

    There we go

  367. "TheKevin" Says:

    Hey lurker

    Why don’t you go eat a di ck

  368. Buc Neckid Says:

    Passing to set up the run game

  369. Bucnut2 Says:

    The bucs will be 5-6 and 2 games out

  370. cmurda Says:

    I’m with you Neckid. I’ve been saying the same thing. PA on 1st down does wonders.

  371. Tampa Tony Says:

    Need a td here to have a chance

  372. lurker Says:

    thought you were leaving kevin, you silly, little man.

  373. San Francisco Joe Says:

    Bucnut–

    At what point did I say don’t pass on first down? Smh get it together.

  374. Tampa Tony Says:

    Comedy of errors now

  375. Buc Neckid Says:

    Ali Marpet
    Get Well Soon

  376. cmurda Says:

    Worst game of the year for the O Line. They have been pathetic.

  377. Bucnut2 Says:

    Evan Smith getting killed

  378. cmurda Says:

    Biggest flop goes to this B.S. O Line. You got owned all day. We are missing Marpet badly.

  379. lurker Says:

    no protection

  380. @FamousBroy3434 Says:

    I absolutely hate this team

  381. Bucnut2 Says:

    26-12 here we go

  382. Tampa Tony Says:

    Bucs getting out coached on both sides of the ball, badly

  383. lurker Says:

    and now the defense gets carved up…

    the d is tired

  384. Bucnut2 Says:

    Bucs getting killed in the trecnhes

  385. Captain Obvious Says:

    Need a Sack and/or Takeaway

  386. MadMax Says:

    We’re only down by 7 folks!

  387. Hasselbeck Says:

    You’ll never get a rush on me

  388. Zbucs Says:

    Defense is allowing Hassleback to throw whatever he needs

  389. lurker Says:

    tampa tony, we can’t be out-coached because lovie is supposedly a great coach.

  390. Zbucs Says:

    Nope down by 14 in just a few

  391. lurker Says:

    facemask?

  392. Buc Neckid Says:

    Horse Collar tackle at the end

  393. Buc Neckid Says:

    BS

  394. Jman Says:

    Out coached? The only reason James looks half as good as he does is Koetter

  395. cmurda Says:

    This defense sucks my balls. My God Lovie. Can you do anything right. Of course a penalty when we finally get a turnover. You have no control or accountability on this team.

  396. lurker Says:

    no hold…pick up the flag

  397. MadMax Says:

    I dont see a hold!!!!!!

  398. Zbucs Says:

    Colts are better. We need a few more players to help this team

  399. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Panthers about the clinch the division lol. Falcons are garbage. 9-7 will easily be good enough for a playoff spot.

  400. cmurda Says:

    That was no holding. NFL conspiracy against the Bucs. There is no excuse for these phantom calls.

  401. Rob Says:

    Bucs are flat. Stupid penalties. Dropped touchdown by Evans. No pass rush. Bucs losing another winnable game

  402. Tampa Tony Says:

    Good teams don’t beat themselves!!!!!

    Pathetic!!!!!!

  403. Zbucs Says:

    Not good….

  404. MadMax Says:

    Thats a TO that should be ours…..what a bunch of bs from the refs!!!

  405. cmurda Says:

    Lovie, you suck dude and so does your defense.

  406. Buc Neckid Says:

    Rookie CB

  407. lurker Says:

    are you kidding me? poor tackling.

  408. Zbucs Says:

    Need additional talent on this team including coaching

  409. cmurda Says:

    Well, the refs won this one. Good job Zebras, you ut-played us with one of the worst displays of “officiating” anybody has ever witnesses. This should be our ball and now the game is iced.

  410. Bucnut2 Says:

    Lossing smith is no loss

  411. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Dropped passes, Dumb penalties, missed field goals, no pressure, GAME

  412. Buc Neckid Says:

    Are you kidding me?!?!?!?

  413. Zbucs Says:

    Bad calls

  414. Buc Neckid Says:

    These refs are crap

  415. The Real Drew Says:

    Worst officiating crew, these guys don’t have to be accountable either.

  416. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hey Jude
    Welcome to the NFL

  417. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Our defense pass rush is garbage! Both fronts are losing the game for us today!

  418. Zbucs Says:

    Next week maybe. This team was not ready

  419. ATrain Says:

    LOVIE IS A SUCKY COACH,,

    AND HIS BROTHERS ARE THE REFS..

    A FAMILY OF SUCK

  420. J-Maguire Says:

    Bucs killing themselves, but even when they do something great, the Gambino Family takes it away (ie, paid off refs).

  421. Zbucs Says:

    Need a turnover bad!

  422. cmurda Says:

    COLTS hold on that run. They’ve been holding all g dam game. Eff the NFL and their biased refs.

  423. Captain Obvious Says:

    Any score by the Colts = Game over
    BUCS Offense is crap today

  424. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Hasselbeck for NFL MVP? Only half joking, where would they be without him?

  425. ndog Says:

    The refs are giving this game to the Colts. At least 6 horrible calls today in the favor of the Colts.

  426. Tampa Tony Says:

    So who thought this d was getting better?

  427. cmurda Says:

    Lovie is a vagina. 3rd and 6 and you let him sit back there for 10 seconds. Lovie should still be canned at year end. We will never go anywhere with a vagina coach.

  428. Zbucs Says:

    That was it. Game over. See ya next week.

  429. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hey Jude
    Today you are the goat

  430. mdc1969 Says:

    Can we please stop talking Playoffs? This team has a lot of growing up to do.

  431. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Tampa Bay shooting themselves in the foot. Typical Buc Ball.

  432. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    I mean sucks happening to us but awesome seeing old man Hasselbeck playing well. Crappy defense yeah but still what an effort.

  433. Tampa Tony Says:

    Backup QB throwing for over 300 yards on loser Lovies d

  434. cmurda Says:

    NO PRESSURE AT ALL. NONE. YOU SUCK LOVIE. I’ve never wavered. The dude is a crap, soft coach and so is his outdated defense.

  435. Destinjohnny Says:

    Officiating sucks

  436. Matt B Says:

    I hate excuses but this is the worst officiated game I have seen in a very long time. Phantom holding calls on Pamphile, Jackson, and Verner.

  437. Matts17 Says:

    Buc O & D lines just dominated all day. No adjustments to help either.

  438. FR Says:

    tampa 2 lol lol lol

  439. Buc Neckid Says:

    The BUCS pass rush is pathetic
    Run defense is pretty good
    BUT pass defense SUCKS

  440. MadMax Says:

    Yep this game is over…..indy’s backup qb is too much for our DB’s and the refs are wearing colt jerseys under their uniforms!!!

  441. LongSeason Says:

    Will someone tell Lovie he can’t coach?

  442. lurker Says:

    falcons ans saints getting stomped…and we lose? need to take advantage of the opportunity.

  443. FR Says:

    Kotter for head coach

  444. Buccfan37 Says:

    Like a broken record.

  445. MadMax Says:

    Oh man that was almost blocked!

  446. orlbucfan Says:

    We cannot win with the all ridiculous calls against us. I’m turning it off. I hope the young Bucs plus coaches realize we have to beat the paid-off zebras as well as the opposite team. That’s how we won the SB. Dungy understood it. Still, we will go 8-8.

  447. LongSeason Says:

    Lovie doesn’t know his donkey from a hole in the ground.

  448. MadMax Says:

    roughing the ball holder?

  449. FR Says:

    Old school versus new school

  450. lurker Says:

    “Will someone tell Lovie he can’t coach?”

    bears fans and owners told him

  451. Tampa Tony Says:

    Game over

  452. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Done. Dang it.

  453. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Live and die in the trenches.
    And they are dyeing on both sides.

  454. Buc Neckid Says:

    Are you kidding me?!?!?!
    LEAPING?!?!?!?!?!

  455. lurker Says:

    what just happened?

  456. cmurda Says:

    Holy crap. They did it. They seriously called leaping. I was joking before but they just called leaping on a play that wasn’t leaping. WTF NFL. I would protst this game if I were the Bucs. This officiating is too effing laughable.

  457. MadMax Says:

    uh oh!!!!! TO?

  458. ndog Says:

    Another phantom call.

  459. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Knee is down it looks like. Hard to see it overturned.

  460. FR Says:

    I will if i see him fing idiot

  461. MadMax Says:

    At least Lovie is challenging….but I saw it, he was down….and the refs wont give it to us anyway.

  462. KW Buc Says:

    Penalties.
    Entirely on the coaching staff
    No discipline
    No excuse

  463. Bucnut2 Says:

    Game over

  464. cmurda Says:

    That’s a fumble. That ball was coming out before he hit the ground. This could be new life.

  465. MadMax Says:

    His forearm was down first and the ball popped out after he hit the ground.

  466. Tampa Tony Says:

    F U loser Lovie for tricking me into thinking this team was learning how to over come your ineptitude!!!!

  467. cmurda Says:

    Ma, look again in slow mo. The ball was def coming out before he hit ground.

  468. JAB83 Says:

    Fumble

  469. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    These refs have been skewing us over all year as well. I’m sick of it!

  470. Bucnut2 Says:

    Cmurda- not so much.

  471. cmurda Says:

    Max*

  472. Zbucs Says:

    Game over folks. We just were out played. Better team.

  473. Reckless Says:

    Bucs Life= Perennial disappointment.

  474. Zbucs Says:

    Not a fan of our coach

  475. cmurda Says:

    Wow, thats game and an exclamation point.

  476. "TheKevin" Says:

    Now all you stupid as s morons can shut up about the playoffs and all these games they “should” win.

    Idiots it’s the bucs any win at all is a surprise.

  477. Tampa Tony Says:

    Horrible challenge, horrible coaching and unacceptable to lose to a 40 year old backup

  478. ndog Says:

    It is crystal clear the NFL wants their golden boy luck on the playoffs. When you watch a game like this you can’t help but think it is fixed. Just clear stuff they”miss”.

  479. jugheadfla Says:

    wow….definately a fumble

  480. FR Says:

    Better team please…… we left a touchdown and a field goal on the field

  481. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    We just made Hasselbeck the oldest player of the week ever! Awesome!

  482. Bucfish7 Says:

    Officiating is a disgrace! Just terrible!

  483. richbucsfan Says:

    The Bucs have made too many mistakes and had too many missed opportunities. Game over.

  484. Tampa Tony Says:

    Nothing is fixed!!! Just undisciplined players and a bad scheme

  485. cmurda Says:

    What’s Lovie going to say about his amazing secondary now. Banks and Verner are sitting on sideline while Jude and Moore got absolutely toasted all day.

  486. Buc1987 Says:

    “The Kevin”…the games not over yet…and a loss doesn’t put them out of the race not by far.

  487. "TheKevin" Says:

    Bucs will be lucky to win another game at all.

  488. Matts17 Says:

    Wow. The officiating has been soooo bad. Just awful but the Bucs have done nothing to help themselves. Still a very bad team.

  489. LongSeason Says:

    @#$% Lovie.

  490. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Lovie still getting schooled by backup quarterbacks.

  491. Zbucs Says:

    Their kicker is much better than ours

  492. ATrain Says:

    By the way , this is what a “PLAYERS COACH” gives you.

    sloppy play

    stupid play..

    but they have won 5 games so he will stay and this is the team we will have

    Tampa excepts Average

  493. DI Says:

    Yeah the Bucs are playing bad but damn I think the refs hate us. So many bad calls against us.

  494. FR Says:

    Thanks for letting revis go and goldston go lovie u idiot

  495. ctord Says:

    I don’t usually complain but lots of tough calls our there today.

  496. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    We need five new offensive linemen. Good news is we found a tight end.

  497. lurker Says:

    people…the refs are refs.

    the bucs lost this game! defense sucked. offense sucked. special teams sucked. coaching sucked.

  498. Bucnut2 Says:

    Can we stop the playoff talk. we are better but not good.

  499. RustyRhinos Says:

    Could 6-5 really be the situation in four short hours? Not looking good, again we have fits with vet QB’s

  500. "TheKevin" Says:

    @buc1987

    Yea the game is over buddy.

    And yea you just keep on thinking about those playoffs lol.

  501. Tampa Tony Says:

    So when the bucs need a timeout at the end blame loser Lovie for a bad challenge

  502. MadMax Says:

    Well, the Lions did beat the crap outta philly after we did…..thats why I was tame on celebrating that win. And sorr, but even if we snuck into the playoffs, we’re not a playoff caliber team….But we’re making progress…. a long ways away though….at least 2 years.

  503. Clearwater Wes Says:

    They held their own destiny and they dropped it.
    There goes the playoff talk.

  504. tb Says:

    The refs have tried to give this game to the colts.

  505. ndog Says:

    Tampa Tony when get chance after chance you eventually score. But your an idiot so there’s that.

  506. Floridaboybill Says:

    How come the refs dnt give us any respect

  507. Destinjohnny Says:

    We need two strong drafts
    We have some peices and can win some games but not playoff caliber.

    Need a center de
    Db another wideout

  508. cmurda Says:

    Leaping, guys. They called leaping on a play that wasn’t even remotely close to leaping. Please NFL, justify this officiated game. Let me hear about the P.I on Evans, the constant holding all game let go against the Colts, leaping, the hold on our TD. Give me a break. the Bucs had to take on the Colts and refs and it left us with no chance.

  509. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    The sad thing is I think we have a better chance of winning the game with the ball in our offenses hands and just kicking onside kicks.

  510. FR Says:

    10 points left on the field

  511. J-Maguire Says:

    Anyone blaming his on coaching or players is an idiot. You have at least two refs that have been paid off. They’ve gotten 7 calls wrong so far and there are numerous NO CALLS on blatant Indy holding.

  512. Supersam Says:

    I guess this team is just the same ol Bucs lol, Eagles are just that bad folks.

  513. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Hasselbeck has been very accurate. Winston? Not so much. Needs to start hitting open receivers.

  514. Biggun Says:

    Refs don’t know the rules on leaping will be reading about how this was the wrong call but to no avail cause as always bucs vs refs and whatever team they play.

  515. Buc1987 Says:

    The Kevin according to the playoff race the Bucs are still very much in it with a loss today.

  516. Buc1987 Says:

    http://www.nfl.com/playoffs/playoff-picture

  517. Supersam Says:

    Winston having accuracy issues again, I’m afraid it’s something he’ll never correct, sloppy footwork.

  518. FR Says:

    If Kotter leaves next year it will be like starting over again next season

  519. J-Maguire Says:

    you can rest assured any TD we do score will be called back.

  520. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Do not blame the refs. Matt Hasselbeck has picked the D apart, the offense settle for FGs early and nothing late, and Evans keeps costing this team points. Refs are just convenient

  521. Zbucs Says:

    Let’s see the 2 minute drill……

  522. King C Says:

    Defense was playing well to hold them to FGs earlier but Hasselbeck adjusted and has been hitting Moncrief and Hilton over and over.
    Pass rush has been poor, WRs are finding openings and toasting the corners

  523. KW Buc Says:

    Stop crying about the officiating.
    The Bucs are a poorly coached team Period.
    There’s no winning with Lovie as HC

  524. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Bottom line is we are about 10 starters away from a championship team.

  525. FR Says:

    Why would u want to make it to the playoff looking like this?

  526. Tampa Tony Says:

    Ndog I love you’re moronic comments keep them coming

  527. Mitch Says:

    That missed extra point is the little bit of hope we needed. JW will win this game.

  528. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    One other thing “The Kevin” your a cancer to this team and us fans. Get lost!

  529. Bucnut2 Says:

    BAd throw

  530. cmurda Says:

    This one looks done. Even JW is off now.

  531. lurker Says:

    “Anyone blaming his on coaching or players is an idiot. You have at least two refs that have been paid off. They’ve gotten 7 calls wrong so far and there are numerous NO CALLS on blatant Indy holding.”

    good detective work shaggy! not really.

  532. Buc1987 Says:

    The Giants are losing so they might go 5-6.

    Vikings beat Atlanta today.

    The Saints lost today.

  533. Jman Says:

    If Kotter leaves well see huge drop off with WV playy

  534. "TheKevin" Says:

    @buc 1987

    Ok you just keep believing the bucs will make the playoffs. Ok.

    They will be lucky to even win another game. And here you are talking about playoffs lmao. Wow.

  535. lurker Says:

    the bucs played horrendous in all phases. it is on the players and coaches.

  536. Buc1987 Says:

    5th sack of the game.

  537. Loubucfan Says:

    Oh well, so much for a playoff run. Same old Bucs. Like the barber said thanks for coning

  538. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW ran right into that sack

  539. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    We really need five new O linemen.

  540. cmurda Says:

    There’s the nail in the coffin. This O Line has been embarrassed all game. Bailed out by a bad Colts penalty.

  541. Espo Says:

    The leaping penalty is setting off my PTSD

  542. jugheadfla Says:

    why does it show that we still have 3 To’s?

  543. FR Says:

    That dude is fat and slow Oline Smith

  544. "TheKevin" Says:

    Thanks mike sorry as s Evans for dropping a TD today. You suck.

  545. Ed Says:

    Our defense sucked today. The Colts blocked our pass rushers so much better than our guys did theirs. We deserve this loss but c’mon some of these calls have been totally awful. That catch and fumble by the Colts was a takeaway and the late hold call on Verner? That was so bad. Then the leaping call. Conte didn’t use his teammates to jump, he made it on his own cleanly. Going back that hold on Martins TD was completely a no call.

    The Buc defense may have lost this but the refs took the fun out of rooting for the Bucs.

  546. San Francisco Joe Says:

    I can’t understand why Koetter has taken Martin out of the game. Makes zero sense.

  547. tnew Says:

    All of you Koetter fans, and I am one, he didn’t call his best game today so far

  548. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh well game over.

  549. jugheadfla Says:

    dude…..just run for it

  550. cmurda Says:

    VJAX is wide open not even looking at his QB. That was just an ugly game. The refs were pathetic but the Bucs sucked today in every way. This was Lovie as his usual, weak self.

  551. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Game.

  552. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Buc1987 we’d be in a playoff spot right now if we won today. Another backup QB rips apart this defense. Needed this win, now next week is all or nothing for the season.

  553. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Rookie QB having a rookie day.
    There will be a couple more like this.

  554. mixxx31 Says:

    Where is the PI that guy never turned his head

  555. cmurda Says:

    True tnew but nobody could call a game with that embarrassment of an O Line today.

  556. Tampa Tony Says:

    Winning streak was fun while it lasted

  557. mdc1969 Says:

    Pathetic discipline. Coach should be embarrassed!

  558. FR Says:

    I still want Lovie fired I hate his defense and I hate the way he coaches this team

  559. tb Says:

    Lovie got out coached today along with his oc

  560. lurker Says:

    as kevin would say: deebada deebada that’s all folks

  561. J-Maguire Says:

    Wow they really imposed their will on us today… and by “they” I mean the refs.

  562. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Wow Evans is a baby. Stop whining and catch the ball princess.

  563. Buc1987 Says:

    Lovie Is Dog Poo …all the teams that we need to lose this week have lost or are about to lose. We’ll be right back where we started from this week.

  564. 911bucs Says:

    I’m so sick of ME complaining on nearly every play

  565. MadMax Says:

    Oh well, now we see what our D looks like against a decent team. Theres where we start in the draft…..especially the DB’s. Need pass rush too.

    Shaq Lawson, Clemson!

  566. holymoly13 Says:

    Defense just didn’t get enough pressure on the old guy. He made them pay. Bucs are better, but not there yet.

  567. FR Says:

    Why didnt they run run run the ball all day geee wizzz

  568. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Still a really bad loss Buc1987. Winnable game against a mediocre team and a bad loss. Team just isn’t good enough, Cowboys and Eagles wins are nice but those teams are dreadful.

  569. 911bucs Says:

    A 40 year old just destroyed our defense today

  570. jugheadfla Says:

    What the hell was Rainey doing? go up and catch the ball!

  571. FR Says:

    Romo was playing we lose and if eagles had a better QB we lose

  572. ndog Says:

    Welcome back haters all you idiots can enjoy yourselves for a week but this team will be very good and you will go hide again. Supersam, Realist you both vanished last week cause you ain’t got crap and you know it. Tampa Tony I will you on that group as well.

  573. lurker Says:

    look at the best #13 in the draft from last year with the giants…smh

    i stated evans had some soft injuries last year and wouldn’t get off the field in that game last year. everyone stated he was godzilla…hmmmmm

  574. Buccfan37 Says:

    The best team won today with a dose of ref help. 1-3 against the AFC South is not good enough. Atlanta lost, Bucs put them out of their misery next week.

  575. cmurda Says:

    That was an easy TD and JW overthrows it. He needs to work on the deep passes. That has to be a TD

  576. Tampa Tony Says:

    So awful

    Why am I still watching?

  577. cmurda Says:

    I appreciate the token calls now refs but you all could go jump off a bridge.

  578. FR Says:

    Yup over throws him

  579. Couch Fan Says:

    With a competent coach this team can be good but so far Lovie hasent shown any ability to have his team ready to compete on a weekly basis.

  580. King C Says:

    A 2nd straight road game is tough for a young team

  581. cmurda Says:

    Winston had a rough game today but he was under siege all day.

  582. King C Says:

    The game was lost today when the offense settled for field goals in first half.

  583. LJ'sDaddy Says:

    I am tired of all the knucklehead trolls on this site. I love Joe’s writing but I can hardly read the comments. You guys are the biggest bunch of babies. This team is getting better we will be good someday. This game was a tough loss but we have come a long way. Winston is showing a ton of promise. I will be a Bucs fan until I die! All you trolls should go kick rocks.

  584. ElioT Says:

    This team did not show up today.

    Huge let down game. Back to being losers.

    Siege this!

    Go Sucs!

  585. FR Says:

    next year next year

  586. lurker Says:

    a learning game for winston.

    bears fans stated lovie was poor with timeout and clock management and that he cannot make halftime adjustments. hmmmmm

  587. Tampa Tony Says:

    Playoffs?? Score board watching??? Why??? Bucs can’t even beat a 40 year old QB. Bucs offense got stagnant once they had a 3 point lead. Loser Lovie’s loser mentality fails again

    Bucs are 1-3 against the worst division in football FML

  588. King C Says:

    The defense met its match in an old wily veteran QB.
    Lesson learned and we move onto next week

  589. Couch Fan Says:

    “We will be good someday”… but not today.

  590. LongSeason Says:

    To the Glazers: Please do not let Lovie on the plane. He can take a bus or walk or something. His DBs can go with him.

  591. Aubpierce Says:

    The Bucs will never have a winning record with the pass defense they continue to run.

  592. Ray Rice Says:

    The hype got to them. All 3 phases sucked today.

  593. lurker Says:

    will winston ever have a quick release or throw it faster with a rush on?

  594. ndog Says:

    This game we did not play great but the refs were atrocious. You cannot win when everybody you do gets taken away but the refs. The took away a td, a turnover, and called a phantom leaping call that gave them and extra 4 points.

  595. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    A fecking penalty there? LOL. What a terribly undisciplined team.

  596. lurker Says:

    the leaping call was a personal foul for knocking over the holder. there was a hold on the td run, and the colt was down.

  597. MadMax Says:

    Also, Hasselback had some good Receivers! We still need to draft another tall WR who can get it done when the ball is placed between his numbers.

    Pharoe Cooper in the 2nd.

  598. lurker Says:

    so much for swagger jog…

  599. ATrain Says:

    Lovie’s press conference:

    ” We made some mistakes but we are getting better.” ” I saw some good things .”

  600. Newbucsfan Says:

    Best thing to happen for the Bucs. Now they know that Jude is a stop gap and a cb needs to be drafted along with a pass rusher safety. Also need a left guard and power runningback to go along with what they have.

  601. Aristotle Says:

    OLine was bad, Sterling Moore had a bad Game. Penalties and Penalties and cheating Refs, but mainly penalties!!

  602. Newbucsfan Says:

    The bucs also need a lot of speed at wr I agree totally!

  603. ATrain Says:

    Rebuilding for another 2 years
