    ASJ out. Probably has a splinter or something. Not like his team needs him.

  2. tb Says:

    Go Tampa lets win today!!!!

  3. Buccfan37 Says:

    I look for Jameis to have a good game today. Offense clicking means Dallas goes down.

  4. BucGator Says:

    We have to win this game! Go Bucs!

  5. "TheKevin" Says:

    I hope I’m wrong but looks like a buc loss today for me

    27-17 Dallas

    We have mr “drops a lot” receiver and a terrible secondary.

    So I don’t see any way we win

  6. cmurda Says:

    USF BABY! Go Bucs!

  7. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    If Lovie can’t win this game losing out is very possible. This is probably the worst team we have left so a loss is unacceptable.

  8. Couch Fan Says:

    The Lovie coached Bucs win 1 out of every 4 games, which means we have at least 2 more losses before we win again. Home Field disadvantage + Lovie Smith + Vs. back up QB = Loss.

  9. Buccfan37 Says:

    Let’s put another dent in the fantasy that is America’s team. No time like the present. The Bucs owe Dallas a drubbing.

  10. Soggy Says:

    We at home, We better win over these cow boys.. OH YA….

  11. Bucnut2 Says:

    Bucs lose 28-9. We can’t punch it in the end zone

  12. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Bucs blow ’em out today boys!

  13. Couch Fan Says:

    Winston is fired up. Great sign. Love seeing his passion for the game.

  14. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Great D!

  15. Couch Fan Says:

    A rare 3 and out. Nice.

  16. mixxx31 Says:

    3and out. Ok!!!

  17. "TheKevin" Says:

    This team sucks

  18. cmurda Says:

    Somebody not named Evans needs to get open. When you watch the receivers on that 3rd down play, it was borderline embarrassing.

  19. Tampa Tony Says:

    How about a hold on the return???

  20. Tampa Tony Says:

    Or maybe a pass one 1st down?

  21. cmurda Says:

    There it is. Over the middle short. Always open against this defense. Too easy to beat this defense. As they say in the Army, too easy.

  22. Bucnut2 Says:

    WOW Moore not even in the picture

  23. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Hold them to 3

  24. Soggy Says:


  25. lightningbuc Says:

    Put a fork in McCoy…begging out of the game!

  26. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice coverage by moore

  27. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Holy &/$:);)(&/@ we blitzed in the red zone!

  28. cmurda Says:

    Kwon. Nice. He’s the hearbeat of this defense.

  29. Couch Fan Says:

    And Dalls has the lead.

  30. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice call by lovie

  31. Soggy Says:

    alright a blitz good job D

  32. mixxx31 Says:

    D is playing some inspired today.

  33. mixxx31 Says:


  34. steve Says:

    “The Kevin”…..Is an idiot!!!! Not sure why this guy even watches sports

  35. Tampa Tony Says:

    A first down pass!!!

  36. "TheKevin" Says:


    Isn’t it time for your nap?

  37. Couch Fan Says:

    Come on Russ. Gotta make that catch.

  38. cmurda Says:

    Make that catch Sheppard. My goodness. Our receivers do not help Winston out.

  39. Soggy Says:

    The Martineers

  40. mixxx31 Says:

    Run that sh!t Dougie Fresh!!

  41. mixxx31 Says:

    Okay lets matriculate the ball down the field boys.

  42. "TheKevin" Says:


    How was your chicken nugget lunch mommy made for you?

    Did you sit in the high chair or at the big boys table today?

    Don’t forget your binkie at nap time.

  43. Tampa Tony Says:

    Martin looks to be back on track

  44. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice kick

  45. cmurda Says:

    Nice Barth. Juuuuuust enough.

  46. Buccfan37 Says:

    What is this media love affair with “America’s team” Dallas? Almost all of their games have been nationally televised this season. Even when they stink.

  47. Soggy Says:

    Stange choice for a short kick off

  48. "TheKevin" Says:


  49. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Pass rush is pure shyte.

  50. Buc Neckid Says:

    Wish i had witten on my fantasy team
    Every Week LVD is smoked by their TE

  51. Tampa Tony Says:

    David can’t cover to save his life

  52. "TheKevin" Says:

    Mike Jenkins is in lol. Sure to give up atleast one td today

  53. mixxx31 Says:

    Ho Jo way to go bruh!!

  54. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice stop by D

  55. Soggy Says:

    clunker junk

  56. cmurda Says:

    Boink, off the post but in. The luck I’ve grown accustomed to having.

  57. mixxx31 Says:

    We will win this game.

  58. keith Says:

    We suck

  59. Tampa Tony Says:

    1 3 and out per game and loser Lovie thinks the d is getting better

  60. Couch Fan Says:

    If its a battle of the FGs, we’ll still lose since their kicker hasent missed a kick all season so far. LoL.

  61. Bucnut2 Says:

    bad throw by J, ME had him beat

  62. lightningbuc Says:

    High Def doesn’t do Pam Oliver any favors! Yikes!

  63. Bucnut2 Says:

    another bad throw

  64. Tampa Tony Says:

    Winston is so off

  65. cmurda Says:

    Jeez. Our offense is not getting it done. It’s D Martin, M Evans and nobody else for Winston.

  66. Soggy Says:

    They are trying to hand us a TD so lets do it…

  67. Buc Neckid Says:

    M.Evans is getting a break today
    Still can’t catch the friggin ball but getting the penalty calls

  68. "TheKevin" Says:

    Why is Martin not running it?

    F sims. Put in Martin stupids

  69. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    This is such bad football to watch. Not very good teams and it shows.

  70. cmurda Says:

    Donovan yet again getting nervous dealing with Hardy

  71. Buc Neckid Says:

    C’Mon Smith!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. "TheKevin" Says:


  73. Tampa Tony Says:

    So much for the offense improving

  74. "TheKevin" Says:

    F ing pathetic

  75. Tampa Tony Says:

    Stop targeting Evans!!!!!!!!

  76. Clearwater Wes Says:

    These receivers have to get open.
    It cant only be Evans.

  77. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another late throw

  78. jugheadfla Says:

    Lets be honest, Vincent Jackson needs to get his ass out there

  79. Tampa Tony Says:

    Can’t rely on fgs when your d is awful

  80. Bucnut2 Says:

    He can target ME is he throws on time. ME is open is JW isn’t late

  81. cmurda Says:

    And that happens. I guess advantage Cowgirls because their kicker is better than ours. I’m so frustrated watching this mess on my tv right now.

  82. Couch Fan Says:

    Told ya we wont win a battle of FGs. LoL. I know this team.

  83. "TheKevin" Says:

    Lol hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahah figures.

    What a wasted opportunity.

    I can’t believe I watch this sh it

  84. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Well, at least the defense got a good rest.

  85. Soggy Says:

    No clunker for us

  86. Buc Neckid Says:

    Barth got caught playing the wind
    It did not push it
    He hooked it

  87. Bucnut2 Says:

    Oh well this is about next year anyway

  88. "TheKevin" Says:


    Every year is about next year

  89. Buc Neckid Says:

    Feel like i am watching Josh Freeman and K2
    Winston cannot take his eyes off of Evans

  90. Bucnut2 Says:

    no way we win this

  91. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Matt Cassel, 7/9 for 70 yards. Another mediocre QB looking like its easy for him.

  92. Bucnut2 Says:

    Dallas is actually moving the ball. We are not

  93. "TheKevin" Says:

    Well let’s all just kick back and see how bad it gets

  94. keith Says:

    Same on trash bucs

  95. Buc Neckid Says:

    Same rush every time
    GMC gets taken out of the play to the outside everytime

  96. Bucnut2 Says:

    only chance we have is to score on defense

  97. "TheKevin" Says:

    I hate John lynch. Just a hater

  98. Bucnut2 Says:

    moore is playing well

  99. Buc Neckid Says:

    Good play by Verner
    Glad he is getting out of the doghouse

  100. Bucnut2 Says:

    Lynch not a hater, just honest

  101. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    This might be the worst NFL game this season. Wow this is bad.

  102. Bucnut2 Says:

    The D is playing pretty well.

  103. Buc Neckid Says:

    Dez Bryant may be good
    But he sure is a D!CK

  104. Soggy Says:

    That evened things out a little

  105. Bucnut2 Says:

    3 and out coming

  106. Buc Neckid Says:

    First Catch?

  107. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice throw!

  108. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another great throw

  109. cmurda Says:

    Here we go. finish with TD

  110. Bucnut2 Says:

    Nice catch by ME

  111. Soggy Says:

    Dry Balls..lol

  112. Brent Says:

    All you dopes who wanna dump me, hello. As lynch said, rare talent. Just not a #1 receiver.

  113. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hey Koetter,
    Try this hurry up offense more often
    it seems to be working
    Unfortunately the Rhythm this time gets interrupted by the two minute warning

  114. Buccfan37 Says:

    Go Jameis to Evans! Take the lead!

  115. Bucnut2 Says:

    Bad throw,ME wide open!!!!

  116. jugheadfla Says:

    turdly thrown ball

  117. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bad throw
    It has been said earlier
    but Winston is having an “off” day

  118. jugheadfla Says:

    at least they are throwing it into the end zone

  119. Bucnut2 Says:

    Geez.. come on JW, make a throw!!!

  120. Bucnut2 Says:

    America’s QB looks REALLY bad!

  121. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Matt Cassel is outplaying Jameis by a lot right now. Sad face…

  122. Buc Neckid Says:

    Not Winston’s fault
    Myers went alligator arms on that

  123. jugheadfla Says:

    stone hand receivers

  124. BucGator Says:

    It was high but he should have caught that. Don’t like that we got away from the run after the 1st down.

  125. Bucnut2 Says:

    Can we go back and draft again???

  126. cmurda Says:

    Slightly high but we have a talent deficiency on this team. Zero depth. Winston can’t do much more when the ball has to be thrown there. That’s a ball that a TE in the NFL is paid to catch.

  127. Buccfan37 Says:


  128. "TheKevin" Says:

    And the implosion begins lol. Oh it’s hilarious

  129. TAC Says:

    No receivers besides evans. Should have picked up a couch surfer at least. Sims in any type of traffic is useless.

  130. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hey gang- not receivers making all of those late, bad throws. Take your rose JW colored glasses off.

  131. Clearwater Wes Says:

    I guess we need to draft 7′ wide receivers and tight ends.

  132. GerbilsGoneWild Says:

    Always high on his misses

  133. Bucnut2 Says:

    This could be a 14 point swing

  134. Couch Fan Says:

    Come on D. Dont let them score before halftime.

  135. Buc Neckid Says:

    GMC irrelevant again
    Pancaked on a pass block that time

  136. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Score should be 9-9.

  137. lightningbuc Says:

    To all the Jaboo jock sniffers, Jaboo is bad today – underthrowing Evans every time, high and behind Myers. Looks like North Korea’s QB today.

  138. Tampa Tony Says:

    Anyone still think this offense is getting better?

  139. San Francisco Joe Says:

    I like Dirk in general but when Doug Martin is not the focal point of this offense. WE LOSE. WTF are you thinking.

  140. Tampa Tony Says:

    Jameis is off but receivers are not helping

  141. Bucnut2 Says:

    It is a great offensive scheme.

  142. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Front 4 can’t get any pressure.
    Has anyone seen McCoy?

  143. "TheKevin" Says:

    Well we were running the ball well. Guess if it’s working we better stop cause we may end up winning and we wouldn’t want that.

    Pathetic koetter. Just pathetic.

  144. tb Says:

    Really play calling is sucking today

  145. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did not know that Johnson was in the game

  146. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Here we go again making crappy QB’s look good.

  147. Bucnut2 Says:

    Great play by LVD and Verner

  148. tb Says:

    Play calling is bad run the ball

  149. Buc Neckid Says:

    Winds Swirling looking nasty

  150. Bucnut2 Says:

    The way JW is playing we should kneel

  151. Bucnut2 Says:

    Good call

  152. "TheKevin" Says:

    Where is Martin?

    Why is Simms in the game?

    Someone tell me.

  153. tb Says:

    Heard gmc name one time

  154. Buc Neckid Says:

    Get out of bounds
    Rookie move
    Two yards more < saving a time out

  155. Couch Fan Says:

    48 seconds left and your running the freaking ball and using time outs. Makes no freakin sense.

  156. Buc Neckid Says:

    Winston is not good today

  157. Bucnut2 Says:

    Should have been another pick

  158. lightningbuc Says:

    Now I see why Lovie usually takes a knee with a minute left.

  159. tb Says:

    O I can’t stand lovie

  160. "TheKevin" Says:

    Who the fu ck is calling this game? A teenager?

    Running the ball throwing in the middle of the field with no timeouts?

    This is pathetic

    I guess Martin is on the bench.

  161. Bucnut2 Says:


  162. "TheKevin" Says:

    Lmao wow this is some pathetic football

  163. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    lol at that game management. Lovie doesn’t even know what he wants, he’s a confused nincompoop.

  164. Buc Neckid Says:

    Three man rush
    and down goes Winston

  165. "TheKevin" Says:

    Just forfeit the game bucs and save yourselves the emabrassment.

  166. Buc Neckid Says:

    Packer 3
    Lions 0
    That’s pathetic football

  167. cmurda Says:

    That about sums up the first half as Cherilus doesn’t even touch his guy, let alone block him on a 3 man rush.

  168. tb Says:

    Winston having a rough day.. Go bucs after the break

  169. Couch Fan Says:

    No clue how people can look over this stupidity game after game and continue to think Imcompetent Lovie is competent.

  170. Mike10 Says:

    I’m ready to start listening to trade offers for 93, sell high.

  171. BuccoDav Says:

    I’m starting to think America’s Guard Ali Marpet is the heart and soul of this offense…

  172. JPeriod Says:

    I was born in Tampa, been a Bucs fan since ’77. All you troll idiots that bash them and spout pessimistic BS must be from another state, like so many fools that have ruined Florida. More Giant and Cowboy fans at the stadium. Please go back to where you moved to Florida from. Eff off

  173. tb Says:

    Lovie pulled dk in told him to run the ball

  174. "TheKevin" Says:

    No pathetic is all things bucs

    Just ridiculous

  175. cmurda Says:

    @ The Kevin.

    I’m frustrated too but c’mon man. We are only down 3 and our offense has been putrid. Our defense, however, has been pretty decent. Winston will get it going and Koetter will adjust. We can easily win this game. The Cowboys are not strong on offense sans Romo.

  176. "TheKevin" Says:

    Winston is just another freeman

  177. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    As much as I dislike lovie i liked that he finally went for points before the half

  178. "TheKevin" Says:


    It’s always “we’re only down by a little” until the game is over.

    Are you watching the same game I am?

    Because it’s putrid play calling.

    Where did Martin go? They just pulled him for like 10 minutes for sorry as s sims.

    Just pathetic. Winston cannot lead a receiver. Always under throwing Evans instead of leading him.

    Am I the only one without rose colored glasses?

    This sh it sucks

  179. Bucnut2 Says:

    Lovie coaching well today. D looks good. He’s conservative because he has an inaccurate QB.

  180. "TheKevin" Says:

    The only thing that was working was Martin. Better pull him if it’s working.

    No excuse

  181. Mike10 Says:

    Typical Bucs game. Playing a bad team that’s lost 6 straight and is in shambles, and we’re losing going into the half. Bad bad football.

  182. Buccfan37 Says:

    Yippee we get the kick. A Bucs passing TD is in order.

  183. Couch Fan Says:

    Winston is having a bad game but to say he is Freeman is absolutely moronic. I agree with everything else though.

  184. keith Says:

    Josh better then jameis

  185. "TheKevin" Says:


    You lost all credibility when you used “can easily win this game” in a sentence.

    Those are words that should never ever be used in a bucs game.

  186. Buc Neckid Says:

    Something is up between koetter and D.Martin

  187. Tampa Tony Says:

    The joes will blame the receivers for Winston’s bad first half

  188. Mike10 Says:

    Alright Lovie, run Dougie, he’s been rolling

  189. Buc Neckid Says:

    Winston = Freeman in the way he stares down Evans like Freeman stared down K2

  190. Tampa Tony Says:

    Why take martin out if he’s getting yards? The coaching decisions are pathetic

  191. tb Says:

    Winston is not as bad as freeman

  192. Buc Neckid Says:

    Three on Smith today

  193. jugheadfla Says:

    geezus….3 false starts????? WTF?????????

  194. Tampa Tony Says:

    More yellow

  195. jugheadfla Says:

    put dotson in there!

  196. jugheadfla Says:

    incomplete pass….easy call

  197. Couch Fan Says:

    thats clearly an incomplete pass. His arm was going forward.

  198. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Lovie sucks the big dog.

  199. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    ProFootballTalkVerified account
    Report: Greg Hardy, Demarcus Lawrence had to be separated after going nose-to-nose on sideline http://wp.me/p14QSB-9UzX

    Crazy ass Hardy!

  200. Bucnut2 Says:

    Inncomplete pass

  201. Soggy Says:

    that no fumble

  202. Buc Neckid Says:

    Incomplete pass
    Geesh the ball went forward ten yards

  203. jugheadfla Says:

    it will be over turned but does it matter? they suck!!!!!

  204. cmurda Says:

    I admit it. Winston is having a terrible game. That was not a fumble though. He’s under siege. Any Qb would. I know Dallas has a solid line but D Smith is having a terrible game and the O Line is not winning the battles.

  205. Tampa Tony Says:

    Please don’t tell me Dallas plays Lovie’s passive d scheme!!! They attack on all levels!!! Lovie’s loser d doesn’t

  206. Buc Neckid Says:

    Well at least we know now why Humphries did not initially make the team
    Carr blew him up before sacking Winston

  207. Couch Fan Says:

    Winston = Freeman in the way he stares down Evans like Freeman stared down K2
    Really so because he’s not a finished product yet he’s just like Freeman? Lol. Another moronic statement.

  208. Tampa Tony Says:

    I wish hardy was hear to light into soft gmc

  209. jugheadfla Says:

    Aikman needs to hit AA

  210. JAB83 Says:

    Clearly Troy A is an alcoholic

  211. ndog Says:

    You people ripping Jameis are clueless. Do not seem him getting crushed every play? This is Donovans smith’s worst game by far.

  212. Bucnut2 Says:

    The arguement is not JW versus freeman, it JW vs MM. We drafted the wrong guy.

  213. Buc Neckid Says:

    After seeing the replay
    what about the contact to Winston’s head?

  214. keith Says:

    Imiss freeman he went 10-6. Ya smh

  215. JAB83 Says:

    Time for a turn over!!!!

  216. "TheKevin" Says:

    This team is so far off from being good it’s pathetic. Just ridiculously pathetic

    I’m just watching for comedic relief at this point.

    There is absolutely no chance on this planet that the bucs win this game. None.

    It’s over. Pack it up and head home. In the books. 3 and whatever. GAME OVER

  217. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW has had a bunch of clean pockets and thrown late, high and behind his receivers

  218. jugheadfla Says:

    coverage sack….Gholston dances….please

  219. Tampa Tony Says:

    Coverage sack for a change

  220. Buccfan37 Says:

    That was the Bucs halftime adjustment in anticipation of receiving the kick.

  221. cmurda Says:

    All this and we are only down 3. Think on the bright side.

  222. tb Says:

    Can we cover a Te

  223. Bucnut2 Says:

    that throw by MC is what an on time throw looks like

  224. jugheadfla Says:

    Verner looking into the backfield

  225. Tampa Tony Says:

    Kirk Cousins has more 3 tD games than our franchise QB…

    Still a Jameis fan just frustrated as hell

  226. jugheadfla Says:

    wow….late hit….lucky

  227. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another on time throw by Cassel

  228. jugheadfla Says:

    kwon running before he caught it

  229. Couch Fan Says:

    Come on!!! Catch the damn ball!!! Ughhhh. Wasted oppertunity

  230. cmurda Says:

    OMG Kwon. OMG man.

  231. jugheadfla Says:

    that was 6

  232. Bucnut2 Says:

    That was our best chance to score

  233. Buc Neckid Says:

    Kwon looked like LVD there

  234. JAB83 Says:

    Oh my what a shame King Kwon

  235. Soggy Says:

    Yikes Kwon what a gift dropped.. Uh

  236. Couch Fan Says:

    And another penalty to back us up.

  237. keith Says:

    Freeman needed lovie smith

  238. Tampa Tony Says:

    First team to score a TD wins

  239. "TheKevin" Says:

    The bucs=always almost.

  240. Bucnut2 Says:

    D playing well

  241. JAB83 Says:

    Always seems we drive the ball better when we are pined deep… I am think TD of a nice screen pass

  242. Brent Says:

    i think jw playing well this year as rookie. But if he’s so great why am I always scared he’s about to throw a pick. I didn’t feel that way wit Johnson or Garcia or even mg.

  243. keith Says:

    Yall forget freeman had 4 tds idiots

  244. Soggy Says:

    Pam needs a hat today

  245. Bucnut2 Says:

    Nice on time throw by JW

  246. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Holding on fair catch!!!

    Be careful down here….

    We need to start hitting Dye, Humprhies, Shepard…..

  247. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW staring people down

  248. Bucnut2 Says:

    GREAT catch

  249. Buc Neckid Says:

    Wes Welker Junior

  250. Couch Fan Says:

    Good job Hump.

  251. TAC Says:

    nice job humphries

  252. Bucnut2 Says:

    Drop by ME

  253. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Did it start raining?

  254. Buc Neckid Says:

    Cmon Evans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

  255. jugheadfla Says:

    no words

  256. Bucnut2 Says:

    GREAT throw

  257. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    He’s got college hands. Time to grow up.

  258. Buc Neckid Says:

    Drive Killer Evans

  259. cmurda Says:

    I feel bad for Winston. M.E getting booed off the field and rightfully so. Kills the drive. We are going to need to draft a T.E. and a WR. All I can think of is the draft because this team is tough to watch.

  260. JAB83 Says:

    No biggie… Flipped the field… Now get that dang turnover!!!!

  261. Couch Fan Says:

    No more drops Evans.

  262. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Couple drops but Winston is pretty bad today.

  263. Soggy Says:

    bad timely drop after humpries has awesome catch under same type 3rd down.. UH Mike

  264. "TheKevin" Says:

    Can anyone seriously defend this guy?


    go ahead you idiots. Defend Clayton Evans.

    So overrated it’s pathetic. OVER RATED.

  265. ndog Says:

    It’s offical Evans sucks!

  266. Tampa Tony Says:

    I’m burning my sons Evans jersey

  267. Mike10 Says:

    It’s so hard being the fan of a bad football team. They just find ways to lose.

  268. JAB83 Says:

    JW is in ME ear right now…. Don’t worry about it ME your gonna make up for it real soon

  269. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Trying to figure out our biggest need. LT, DE, CB, WR, TE. Man we are a LOOONNNG way away.

  270. "TheKevin" Says:


    Dude seriously stfu you idiot.

    Evans sucks. If you can’t see that then stop watching football.

  271. Bucnut2 Says:

    Nice defense not letting Dallas get deep on Play action

  272. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Mike10, you sound new. I’ve been livign this for 40 years. Being a Buc fan is a disease. I’m not fighting it, but it’s tough to live with sometimes.

  273. DefenseWanted Says:

    Joe and fans…
    As much as I’d Lovies head on stick, as much as I’d like to see stick-um on Evans hands, as much as I’d like to actually see our high price draft picks play to their potential…. I can see progress and good play. I accept this season is done. But the potential is there. Please give time. Please

  274. J-Maguire Says:

    Jack Burton, how is Winston “pretty bad” today? It took these announcers two full quarters to realize he only has ONE guy to throw to and that guy CONSISTENTLY drops passes.

    The INT hit the receiver in his hands. Why do you think Winston is pressing? It’s pretty obvious because when there’s literally nobody getting open you have to try and make a play. He’s been off on only two passes in this game.

  275. Bucnut2 Says:

    the Kevin you are so wrong. Evans has a drop problem but is a special talent. The guy always gets separation which none of our receivers do

  276. Couch Fan Says:

    Screen pass right here with Sims. Take it all the way!!

  277. mixxx31 Says:


  278. Brent Says:

    1 drop today. We really need Vjax and Murphy. Defense good today.

  279. Bucnut2 Says:

    time to hit play action on first down and hit ME. Otherwise no throws, JW is to inaccurate

  280. Bucnut2 Says:

    ME deep

  281. lightningbuc Says:


    Usain Bolt could probably get separation too, but if you can’t catch the football then it doesn’t matter.

  282. JAB83 Says:

    Musel Hamster Time!!!

  283. Bucnut2 Says:

    Be careful here

  284. Bucnut2 Says:

    not a drop

  285. TAC Says:

    Once Jackson went down they should have signed someone, anyone.

  286. Buc Neckid Says:

    It is gettin in his head

  287. "TheKevin" Says:


    Yea and a drop problem for a receiver is just a small detail huh?


    do you hear yourself. “A special talent but has a drop problem”? My god you are a special kind of stupid

  288. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice throw

  289. Buc Neckid Says:

    What is the crowd chanting?

  290. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    The pick was Winston’s fault. Wide open TE and he throws high and to the right. Threw into triple coverage early to Shepherd when Evans was WFO shorter over the middle. Threw late several times to Evans and 34; the should have been interception to the tight end was late and weak. Evaluate him objectively and you will see that. One semi-consistent receiver is a problem I agree. (That was a good throw).

  291. J-Maguire Says:


    you nailed it–we have NOBODY ELSE who can get open, and Winston is trying to squeeze the ball where he can because there’s no other option other than to throw it away on every play.

    the probem is an NFL receiver should catch 85% of the balls thrown to him, and Evans is only catching 35%… right now, Evans is NOT an NFL wide receiver

  292. Couch Fan Says:

    Do we ever run the ball to the outside? Seems like every run play is right up the middle.

  293. Mike10 Says:

    Lol a disease? Na, I’ve been around a long time..

    I just don’t get how a franchise builds itself up after the70s, wins a SB, then just falls right back to the pits.

  294. Bucnut2 Says:

    What a catch!!!!!!

  295. Buc Neckid Says:


  296. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Keep throwing downfield. Those passes seem to make things happen. A

  297. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another nice throw

  298. Buc Neckid Says:

    Our New Slot Receiver
    Adam Humpries

  299. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Weird game plan.

  300. Soggy Says:

    Humpries doing it, thats right lets spread the ball around, about time…

  301. JAB83 Says:

    Wheel route??? TD

  302. mixxx31 Says:

    Great catch Mike E. !!!!

  303. DefenseWanted Says:

    Adam humpries??? Is a bright spot.

  304. Buc Neckid Says:

    What was the crowd chanting when Evans dropped it three plays ago?

  305. Tampa Tony Says:

    Adam humpries is looking a nice slot or 4th receiver when everyone is healthy

  306. TAC Says:

    I’ve seen very good receivers have this problem, and overcome to become great. Evans is still a playmaker, and the only one the bucs have right now. Hump is having a solid day.

  307. Tampa Tony Says:

    Winston has a lot to work on in the off season

  308. Bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s punt

  309. TAC Says:

    So many useless scrubs on this team.

  310. cmurda Says:

    And that drive ends. Ughhhhhh. This team doesn’t finish. Stocker with a great non-catch.

  311. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    We have the worst WR and TE’s in the world. JHC!

  312. Tampa Tony Says:

    Stocker, another dominik bust

  313. Buc Neckid Says:

    First TD wins

  314. JAB83 Says:

    Still turnover!!! Game over!!!! Sack fumble GMC!!!

  315. cmurda Says:

    In trying to find the positives (few and far between), I’ll go with at least we played the field position game.

  316. "TheKevin" Says:

    Oh the intelligence of bucs fans.

    “We have a great receiver in Evans but he has a drop problem”

    Lmao idiots. A great receiver and “playmakers” don’t have a 35% catch percentage.

    I feel like I’m in the twilight zone.

    Do you all hear yourselves?

  317. Bucnut2 Says:

    TT- what you said!! He’s a hard worker so hopefully he figures it out.

  318. Soggy Says:

    I have never fallen asleep during a buc game but this might do it..

  319. tb Says:

    Lets go Tampa

  320. ElioT Says:

    This game sucks.

  321. Bucnut2 Says:

    The Kevin, part of that 35% number is that JW consistently throws late and off target to him

  322. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Usually the Bucs defense is the cure for an offense’s ills. Today pretty decent.

  323. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another discipline problem

  324. Buc Neckid Says:

    Have a seat Melton you selfish fool

  325. Couch Fan Says:

    And a penalty continues the drive. Usually that means they score here.

  326. cmurda Says:

    Cut Melton. He’s useless and just cost us stopping them deep in their territory. Freaking retard.

  327. lightningbuc Says:

    The defensive line of the Bucs doesn’t have a cumulative IQ of 100. What a bunch of stupid imbeciles.

  328. "TheKevin" Says:


    Ok man blame it on someone else lol. Make some more excuses why don’t you lol. Next you’ll blame it on the ball if it is a good throw. Lol wow

  329. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    I think the throwing late problem will be rduced with experience. The accuracy problem maybe also. His feet are often in different places when he throws. Come to think of it, a better O line should cure some of that too.

  330. cmurda Says:

    Good rebound by the defense.

  331. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another Punt
    Defense holds except for the penalty

  332. Bucnut2 Says:

    Other than stupid penalties D looks good

  333. Tampa Tony Says:

    Nothing going right today

  334. JAB83 Says:

    Its all good… Epic drive time!!!!

  335. Couch Fan Says:

    There goes field position. LoL. Unbelieveable.

  336. Buc Neckid Says:

    Rainey is having a tough time with the wind today

  337. tb Says:


  338. cmurda Says:

    Rainey is a good return guy but he’s unstable catching the ball.

  339. mdc1969 Says:

    This game makes soccer look exciting.

  340. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    How windy is it on the field?

  341. Bucnut2 Says:

    This is scary. Hopefully JW doesnt make a big mistake

  342. JAB83 Says:

    Dye is about to get a bomb!!! TD Tampa Bay!!!

  343. Buccfan37 Says:

    It’s do or die time for the offense.

  344. tmaxcon Says:


    I respect your optimism and positive outlook. they could have used you on the titanic….

    It was a just a little iceberg….. epic swim coming!

  345. JAB83 Says:

    Wouldn’t mind a quick score… Simms out of backfield

  346. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice play

  347. jugheadfla Says:

    that was not a hold…sorry

  348. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Cherilus is a league leader in penalties without a doubt.

  349. Bucnut2 Says:

    great throw!!!

  350. Couch Fan Says:

    Dont care what you say about Evans, he’s still productive even with the drops. Just needs to stay focused.

  351. J-Maguire Says:

    sometimes Koetter’s play-calling gets me hard

  352. JAB83 Says:

    That’s why you die and I survive tmax

  353. Soggy Says:

    time for a TD

  354. Buc Neckid Says:

    Crowd is coming alive

  355. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Lol goodness.

  356. TAC Says:

    Damn, JW terrible throw.

  357. Couch Fan Says:

    That might be the game.

  358. Bucnut2 Says:

    Terrible throw

  359. Soggy Says:

    CMON how bad can we B

  360. Tampa Tony Says:

    Another bad throw from Hillsborough countys QB

  361. Buc Neckid Says:

    It was too good to be true

  362. cmurda Says:

    Oh man. Winston is having a terrible game. That will probably ice this one. He has Humphries and was way behind him. That’s all Winston.

  363. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Whole team is just still one of the 5 worst in the league. I guess better than the clear worst.

  364. jugheadfla Says:

    it’s so hard being a Bucs fan…..but I don’t have a choice

  365. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    He’d been throwing better, then that. Late and inaccurate. Fixable, but……

  366. "TheKevin" Says:


    Head for the exits. GAME O-V-E-R

  367. Buccfan37 Says:

    This is a game Glennon could have won in relief.

  368. JAB83 Says:

    Oh yeah Tmax is right… Which makes you a loser Fan of Depression… Congrats loser troll

  369. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Time for some screens to Sims & Lane…..

  370. Bucnut2 Says:

    Ball game!! JW looks really bad!!

  371. TAC Says:

    He chokes anywhere near the redzone.

  372. tmaxcon Says:

    this is were your start DT needs to make a play and get the ball back…

  373. cmurda Says:

    I can only hope JW gets a chance to redeem himself.

  374. jugheadfla Says:

    its sad to hear the crowd cheer for a home team INT….so sad

  375. "TheKevin" Says:

    I laugh at you complete idiots that thought the bucs would win this game. Lol stupids

  376. Buc Neckid Says:

    Time for the Defense to do something
    Turnover time

  377. Bucnut2 Says:

    Can we trade for MM

  378. Rob Says:

    Hey Joe! Your boy, “America’s turnover machine”, is at it again.

  379. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Actually replay shows he chse the wrong receiver. Defense makes a big play.

  380. Soggy Says:

    Lets wipe that smile off jerrys face

  381. Mike10 Says:

    This is a very bad Dallas team, just as a reminder.

  382. tmaxcon Says:


    yo moron, i am not the dude who through ball nor had the 15 yard penalty… i’ll gladly take the blame for you though. the bucs have blowing games like this way before you were a fan I promise you that.

  383. Buc Neckid Says:

    Other QB says
    Find LVD
    Throw to his guy

  384. TAC Says:

    Clown secondary.

  385. tmaxcon Says:

    threw autocorrect

  386. cmurda Says:

    For the record McCoy was coming in on Cassell but the guy we decide to get off the streets who apparently is better than Banks is playing over 10 yards off his man. Complete crap from the secondary.

  387. "TheKevin" Says:

    Pathetic teams lose and that’s the bucs.

  388. Bucnut2 Says:

    At least JW is GREAT in the pregame and press conference. He can pump up the team and then explain the loss.

  389. jugheadfla Says:

    D drops

  390. jugheadfla Says:

    well, this is it folks…..

  391. mixxx31 Says:

    Here we go guys!!!

  392. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Only way we’ll win is if the Cowboys choke, which they might. But the Lovie loser crew will talk about how this team is 2 players away from the playoffs.

  393. Bucnut2 Says:

    The Kevin- does Dez suck??? He has had more drops today than ME???

  394. TAC Says:

    4th Q comeback for JW?

  395. Buc Neckid Says:

    Way to go Dez
    You asked for it
    You got it
    you dropped it

  396. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs are saving the best for last.

  397. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Mike10, you are correct.

  398. cmurda Says:

    Lets go JW. We got new life.

  399. Curse of Gruden Says:

    One time Bucs!

  400. Tampa Tony Says:

    At least the d is playing decent today

  401. ATrain Says:

    Remember it’s not Coaching….

    This guy is a clown.

  402. JAB83 Says:

    Ur still a loser toll Fan of Depression TMax… Regardless

  403. Soggy Says:

    CMON O the cows are trying to give this game away

  404. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Lots of martin here would be good.

  405. Rob Says:

    6 more penalties and counting. 3 by our rookie lineman and of course the idiot unsportsmanlike penalty. Bafoonery if you ask me. Do your job and stop giving games away.

  406. Bucnut2 Says:

    high throw great catch

  407. "TheKevin" Says:


    Are you serious? Clayton Evans has dropped about a dozen passes in 3 weeks.

    And let’s not talk about the Houston game.

    I can’t believe you went with that dude. Can’t believe you even tried to compare the two.

    Nice try though lmao. Wow

  408. lurker Says:


    quit trollin bucs fans

  409. Bucnut2 Says:

    Bad throw great catch by Myers

  410. Soggy Says:

    alright myers nice job

  411. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Look what happens when TE’s and WR’s make plays.

  412. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Sometimes the receiver needs to rescue the QB. Good job Myers.

  413. Couch Fan Says:

    Even with Winston having a bad game, he’s still very capable of winning it for us. He’s the one guy you dont have to worry about. I much rather the ball be in his hands rather than counting on the defense to get a stop.

  414. lurker Says:

    great catch!

    jameis’ accuracy needs to improve

  415. cmurda Says:

    Finish this with a TD and put the pressure on the Boys offense with less than 2 minutes.

  416. JAB83 Says:

    How about it you sorry Depressed Fans!!! TMax… Gotta really be a sad sack of depression to still be rooting against “your team”… You bandwagon trolls need to GTFO

  417. Bucnut2 Says:

    ME would have about 5 more TDs if JW had not under- thrown him so much.

  418. TAC Says:

    Nobody like the drops Kevin, but Evans is nowhere near Clayton bad. Not even close.

  419. Bucnut2 Says:

    Bad throw to Sims. Could have run had he hit him in stride

  420. Couch Fan Says:

    Please get it in the endzone. I dont want this going to overtime!!!

  421. Soggy Says:

    spreading the ball around and keeping their D guessing, Love it..

  422. lurker Says:

    7-11 kevin is just a troll


    remember, do not feed the trolls!

  423. "TheKevin" Says:


    He’s getting there

  424. TAC Says:

    Damn, don’t choke here Jdubya.

  425. "TheKevin" Says:


    There you are buddy lol

    Nice you could join us

  426. cmurda Says:

    OMG. This is horrible

  427. Couch Fan Says:

    OMG!!! you gotta be $hitting meeeeee!!

  428. Couch Fan Says:

    WE got soooooo lucky

  429. TAC Says:

    Wow, almost a choke and puke, jebus Winston.

  430. cmurda Says:

    We just caught the biggest break ever.

  431. Soggy Says:

    thanks 37

  432. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW lucky

  433. lurker Says:

    no fing way!!

    we get a call

    appropriate, but lucky

  434. Rob Says:

    “America’s turnover machine” doing his best to live up to his name. We are sooooooooooooooo lucky.

  435. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    A penalty saves Lovie’s job. We’re screwed with this loser by pure luck lol.

  436. DefenseWanted Says:


  437. JAB83 Says:

    In ur face u fake fans in ur fing face!!!!

  438. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Esasy call.

  439. Soggy Says:

    they are giving it to us, so lets do it, what do ya say bucs

  440. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW lucky again

  441. tmaxcon Says:


    look dumb arse no one rooting against the bucs but I am also not in denial how bad this team is nor the coaching. reality does not equally depression

  442. "TheKevin" Says:

    Wow great job Winston

  443. Tampa Tony Says:

    Nice play call!!!!

  444. lurker Says:



  445. TAC Says:

    Bwahaaaaaahhaahaa, f off Cowboy fans…

    Nice job JWeeezuz…

  446. cmurda Says:

    Koetter and Winston gets a gift and both come through with a great playcall.

  447. Couch Fan Says:

    YESSSSSSS. But its not over yet.

  448. The Rockstar Says:

    Never a doubt.

  449. jugheadfla Says:

    I’m just surprised I haven’t had a heart attack yet today

  450. MadMax Says:

    Awesome run Jameis!!

  451. "TheKevin" Says:

    Good call koetter

  452. lurker Says:

    defense has kept them in this game…now seal it

  453. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW can’t throw TD passes but can run it in

  454. Rob Says:

    Can our d hold? Omg

  455. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Wow. Wow. We are due for an ugly win. The defense has the advantage for us here. They have no timeouts and 55 secs left if it is a touchback. Let’s hold and just be thankful.

  456. Bucnut2 Says:

    It looks like he and MM have switched roles

  457. JAB83 Says:


  458. jugheadfla Says:

    why would you not kick that out of the end zone?

  459. J-Maguire Says:

    JW can’t throw TD passes becasue there’s NOBODY TO THROW THEM TO!!

  460. TAC Says:

    OMG what an ass.

  461. Couch Fan Says:

    Ridiculousssss come onnnnnn how stupid do you need to be to keep screwing your team over and over again.

  462. tmaxcon Says:


    Mr. Mariota has 2 more fumbles and a pick today just FYI….

  463. Bucnut2 Says:

    Typical Bucs football

  464. cmurda Says:

    Wow, Mike Jenkins. Another idiot that should be released. Lovie has the most undisciplined team in the league. Sheer stupidity.

  465. Rob Says:

    Mike”the idiot” Jenkins trying to give his old team a win

  466. Bucnut2 Says:

    Max look at the YTD stats. not even close

  467. J-Maguire Says:

    JW has always had a bad tendency to lose focus on holding the ball whenever he’s jumping into the endzone… happened all throughout FSU career as well, so Bucs coaches have been very blind to getting this fixed.

  468. lurker Says:

    any flag?

  469. Rob Says:

    No flag? Praise God

  470. JAB83 Says:


  471. The Rockstar Says:


  472. Bucnut2 Says:

    DB- looks like a loser

  473. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Clear PI and nothing lol. We’re stuck with Lovie by pure luck. We’re cursed.

  474. cmurda Says:

    Woohoo. There was contact there but Dez is going to be the goat for Dallas.

  475. Soggy Says:

    jerry not smilin now..

  476. tmaxcon Says:


    he’s also missed two games… I’d rather have winston in the long run.

  477. TAC Says:

    Slither on out pukeboys.

  478. lurker Says:


  479. MadMax Says:

    another home win….awesome!

  480. Reckless Says:


  481. Bucnut2 Says:

    Look Jw Looks like crap but its a win against a group of thugs. I’ll take it

  482. Jeagan1999 Says:


  483. cmurda Says:

    Ok Winston had a rough game but who came through when we needed it, minus dropping the ball going over the top. LOL.

  484. TAC Says:

    Mike Evans would have caught it.

  485. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Hell yeah!

  486. Curse of Gruden Says:

    I called it…

  487. Bucnut2 Says:

    Tmax, JW was supposed to be more pro ready. Evidently he is not. MM clearly has more upside

  488. Buc1987 Says:

    Bucs Win Bucs Win Bucs Win.

    Everybody happy?

  489. Buc1987 Says:

    Bucnut2 …go blow Mariota!

  490. MadMax Says:

    yup 87, especially against the cowgirls!
