Jameis Says Big Crowd & Noise Were For Him

Sitting in the Georgia Dome press box today, Joe could have screamed horrific insults at the guy next to him and they wouldn’t have been heard.

That’s how loud it was at times, certainly through the fourth quarter and overtime.

The Falcons faithful were 70,000 strong, but not in the world of Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback.

Joe asked Jameis about the deafening noise and Jameis had a different spin.

“It was a home game, especially for me and Kwon [Alexander],” Jameis said. “You know, we [were raised] an hour right down the road. So I was happy with this noise. I took it as the majority of noise was on my side this time. Because I had a lot of family here.”

How bout that! All that noise, and Jameis is just hearing cheers for himself. Talk about crafting a winning mentality.

Doug Martin weighed in to Joe about how the Bucs’ preparation led them to success.

“We couldn’t hear anything, but that’s why we practice,” Martin said. “Jameis just goes through the whole progression of the checks he needs to make and things along that line. It wasn’t a huge factor. We handled it pretty well.”

    Great win

    Jameis took the crowd noise, filtered it through his inner magic, and made it a positive!

    This kid is a fcuking JEDI!!!

    Wish we could somehow become inspired at home….This was a fantastic win for our team…..no one gave us much of a chance…..no one!!!
    Terrible defense….coming of a humiliating loss…..#1 & 3 WR down…..Starting TE down….Rookie QB……

  4. ARGH_M8E Says:

    The wrath of KWON!!!! Feeling for u brotha!!! Incredible performance!!!!!!
    Jamies continues to impress me. Good thing for the turnovers tho, this was scary close. Good news for me is that I survived, however this team and teams of years past, are taking years off my life FOR SURE… But finally I’m calm again …

    Thank god for lil footballs, I mean doc.

    The legin begins!!!! Take note Fans of Depression and Trolls

    Lovie is to blame for this team…. Which means he has adjusted his style by all intents and purposes…. He is a offence first coach and in less then two years he has delivered us the makings of a solid offence for years to come….

    The D is a work in progress BUT just took a huge step forward learning how to close a game!!!!

    Can’t wait to see what Lovie can do with a Defensive draft!!!!

    We are on our way folks…. Make no mistake about it!!!! When you stop hating and take a step back you will see it….

    Trolls are trolls

    Fans of Depression are sick

    Bandwagoners come and go….

    But Real Fans of inspirations (12th man) live and die with their team regardless!!!!

  6. Mark Alscott Says:

    This kid was made for these moments. You can see him taking over as a leader. The team now belongs to him.

  7. RBeaman Says:

    I’ve been bleeding creamsicle & pewter since ’79, so heartbreak and embarrassment is nothing new to the diehard fans of buc nation, but last week felt like a dagger to the heart. Deep, deep down I still have faith in my Bucs, and it’s because of Jameis’ amazing potential, #22’s rookie-like vision downfield and some young talent that we can develop and build on. Great way to bounce back Bucs !!!
    Jameis & Doug – there’s a silent majority of us that believe in you and know you can take our team to the next level.
    Bucs – don’t let the Giants beat you in our house !!!

  8. tb Says:

    The offence is improving,the D needs work,not a total overhaul.Im not a fan of lovie but today he and the bucs won and it felt good to beat ATL.

  10. BrianBucs Says:

    Jameis and the offense are going to have to be very good from here on out because the defense really stinks

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    Mark Alscott…it’s JW’s team now. That’s 100% correct. If not for Atlanta fumbling the ball away and JW’s stellar play Lovie would have lost another one.

    I’m the last fan that’s wants to start all over again with a new coach. I’m always strongly against it, but I’ve seen too much in game stupidity from this coach to say he HAS to go. The sooner the better actually. I hope I’m wrong and Lovie wakes up, snaps out of it or whatever words you want to use, but I don’t see it.

    I saw “IT” in Jameis in 2013 and 2014 while at FSU. In Lovie I only see a daze.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh and for those that question our fandom. They can go to hell and they know who they are. Because I don’t like the HC and think he’s a moron, has nothing to do with not being a fan of this team. A team that I’ve been have of for over 25 years. Some of you were still in diapers back then.

    I criticize a coach or player only when it’s warranted. Many fans do this. I’m a Bucs fan and will remain one long after Lovie Smith is gone. Which should be soon.

    Nice win today Bucs roster, congratulations. Too bad your coach sucks.

  13. JAB83 Says:

    NO beat the Giants and the Cowboys put up less then a hundred yards passing….

    I smell an unlikely 3 game winning streak on the horizon!!!!

  14. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    87 back in the house

  15. JAB83 Says:

    Hey 87….

    Ever think your perspective and negativity is why the BUCS have sucked over the years….

    Look man its simple… Stop being a Fan of Depression…. Be a Fan of Inspiration!!!! The Trolls will drag you down if you stay so Depressed….

    Your the 12th man… Not an owner or a coach or a VP of any kind…. Play your role…. EVERYONE KNOWS you don’t make things better if your the one making it worste… STOP BEING A CANCER…. Your role is to be a Fan of Inspiration not Depression…. Although I understand being depressed but you have reason not to be….

    RAYS UP…. BE THE THUNDER… SIEGE THE DAY my friend…. Or stay miserable I really don’t care… But would prefer you be happy and not so sad and negative!!!!

  16. JAB83 Says:

    And just for the record 87… Your close to being marked as a Troll along with “The Dog poo of Lovies Dog” guy… Real fan or not your a true loser….

  17. Trubucfan22 Says:

    The proble in tampa is that the fans are quiet and a non factor. Jameis was pumped up to finally hear some fans making noise. Even if they weren’t for him, he gets energized by the fans. Take note buc fans.

  18. JAB83 Says:

    Just. To.be clear. Only,refering. To post. Nothing personal

  19. Eric Says:

    If only we could go back to Schiano and Glennon.

  20. Tampa Tony Says:

    @jab- fans perspective has ZERO impact on bad coaching hires, bad drafts, bad free agent signings, MRSA, Freeman melting down, and all the other miscues from this franchise.

    I’m no Loser Lovie fan but I’m a fan of the team so im glad they won. My positive perspective for the week after a win won’t make the secondary better suited to cover giant receivers next week. It won’t make Loser Lovie’s scheme more aggressive or be better with his timeouts.

    I love winning more than being right, so I’d love for a winning streak to happen. But when your d relies on turnovers to win and not stops it’s a recipe for disaster

  21. OneLove Says:

    Damn it feels good to SEE A BUC(KWON ALEXANDER) featured on Sunday Night Football’s WHO YOU LOVE!! RESPECT FATHER DUNGY!!


    “It’s as simple as that” aka “Who do you love?”

  22. Rrsrq Says:

    My first Bucs game since relocation to ATL. It was loud in the stadium but on the way out, there were plenty of Bucs fans, with the chant TAMPA… BAY, TAMPA… BAY, YEAS

  23. JAB83 Says:

    So do we have

    Defensive and offensive Rookies of the week coming are way?!?!?!

    To bad the coaches only matter when we lose….

    Building blocks are looking exceptional folks!!!!

    Lovie has established an excellent young offence in less then two years and IF given time to do the same on D there is no reason to think he won’t do the same….

    Would be remarkable to do both at the same time but he is not that good and had A TON OF ISSUES TO OVERCOME!!!!!

    any calls to licht for glennon?

  25. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Don’t let the trolls bother you 87. They are Lovie fans, not Bucs fans. They don’t bow to their proper lord and savior Jameis Christ, the suckle at the tit of a loser coach who has held us back from being 5-2 and actually thinking playoffs. Jameis is why we’re not 1-6.

  26. Eric Says:

    Extremely well said JAB83.

  27. JAB83 Says:

    Love it Rrsrq….

    I remember and miss those days in Tampa… Its been a while but its coming back for sure!!!!!!

    TAMPA…….. …





  28. Eric Says:

    87 being complimented by dog crap ought to cause you to pause…..

    We got two critical games coming up. Heck neither the men in blue or the boys scare me.

    Wouldn’t put it past Jameis to win em both.

    The kid is a winner.

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!

  29. dreambig Says:

    Nice win for the Bucs. I love, love, love watching Jameis play! He is going to be deadly very soon. Even during Atlanta come back I did not see horribel play. I actually think this team might be improving. Having said thatl I don’t think Lovie will actually be able to take us very far. He seems to stubborn to make adjustments before the path is obvious. Having said that, on the play where he went for on 4th and 1 from his own 40, Lovie said … if I win, its going to be Jameis that does it. That shows growth and willingness to change. I have to give him a bit of credit for that.

  30. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Our team’s success right now has nothing to do with Lovie Smith’s coaching abilities. At all. It’s all about the offense he has nothing to do with. He doesn’t coach up or gameplan the offense. He does the defense, a total disgrace. We could replace him with OneJAB83Love or Eric or 87 or me and we’d have the same record. He’s so replaceable, we must do better. Just like Glennon was ok but not good enough, so is Lovie. Everyone surely sees that besides his troll lovers right?

  31. JAB83 Says:

    Thanks for the complement Eric…. I try.really hard to be fair, honest, realistic and respectful…. Sometimes however you have to go to other peoples level to help them level up in life… I don’t like to always do that because it takes a lot out of me personally…. BUT IN THE END I LOVE SEEING PEOPLE LEVEL UP IN LIFE…. Sometimes they remember me and it fills me back up… Sometimes they don’t and I just smile knowing someday my rewards will be given to me…

    OK sorry went to deep to quick but for real…. This thing we call sports is the coolest thing ever…. I love it win or lose…. My (our) position never changes….

  32. Eric Says:

    He has nothing to do with the offense except drafting Evans, Simms, Winston, Ali, smith, ASJ, etc.

    As well as hiring said outstanding Offensive Coordinator.

    He’s the Head Football Coach, with contractual authority over personnel – hiring coaches, drafting, etc. he’s responsible for the entire team.

    Great Job. Miles ahead from when Lovie took over.

    Lovie Smith/Jameis is going to be a combo here in Tampa for years to come. Very successful years.

    Go Bucs. Huge game Sunday. Let’s rock the house.

  33. celly Says:

    I was in the dome today. It was great to come away with a win.

    I’ve had to sit through years of loses, including a few blowouts. It was nice to take the train and be on the winning side for a change. Fans were NOT happy at all.

  34. Buc1987 Says:

    Drafting Jameis was a no-brainer and Lovie fits the bill as his skull is empty on gamedays.

  35. Eric Says:

    ah well, whatever.

    You guys want to hate on Lovie Smith have at it.

    You will be proven wrong just like the Jameis haters. Don’t hear too much from them anymore eh.

    JAB, you must be “drunk posting” like I used to.

  37. Buc1987 Says:

    Celly….. you and Strider were both at that game in Atlanta. That must have been a blast. I’m soooo happy they pulled it off. For people that think otherwise, well they already know what I think of them and they certainly don’t know me at all. Of course I’m happy Atlanta gave that game away to the Bucs.

    For the record I never watched the defense play until the end of the second qrtr. I won’t watch that side of the ball. It just pisses me off too much and I don’t need anymore of that in my life. My wife hollered to me when our O was back on the field. The only other time I watched our D play today was on the final drive of the 4th when Lovie refused to use his timeouts while Atl was driving for the tie. That just enraged me to no end and I was screaming up and down for him to save some time on the clock. If Lovie used his timeouts, when Atl scored for the tie, the Bucs would have had about a minute left on the clock for our O to try to set up for a FG. Any SMART coach would have used those timeouts.

  38. WalkdaPlank Says:

    “Heck neither the men in blue or the boys scare me.”

    They should, if Matty Ice and Julio Jones can turn the ball over 4 times and still rip the Bucs a new one, imagine what Manning/OBJ and Romo (if healthy)/Bryant will do. Jameis is going to have to continue his stellar/turnover free play for us to have a good chance. But hell, if we can win this one who knows.

  39. destro44 Says:


    I’m going to eat crow. I thought the Falcons would drop 50 on us and if they hadn’t gifted us the ball so often they probably get 40. But that’s why they play the game. We finally caught some breaks. The 500 yards worry me, the penalties worry me, but I live in Atl so I’m going to enjoy this win, and hope that we find a way to turn this win into something.

    I just don’t think we can count on all those turnovers and giving up 500 yrds. It’s nice to see the offense able to carry this team though.

  40. BuccFan21 Says:


    No team in the NFL gives a game away. Stop trying to remove credit from where it’s due! Give our players some damn credit you idiot!!! The Falcons tried to win the game and our defense stopped them to end the game! It really is as simple as that!

  41. Buc1987 Says:

    destro44…well said, but they still won’t get it. They blame the players for giving up the 500 yards and they sure as shyte can’t see that if not for boneheaded turnovers by the Falcons the Bucs would have taken a beating today.

    It’s like we watched a different game, because to them Lovie is a genius. I’ll bet my house that Jameis Winston has a higher IQ than Lovie Smith.

  42. Getaclue Says:

    How about that locker room video, they look like a team, mankins telling them they need a commitment from everybody, love it

  43. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Actually 87, it seems if you mention anything about the defense giving up 500 yards, blowing 17 and 24 point leads, committing dumb penalties, or getting burned almost every 3rd down you will just be called a troll. Lmao. For speaking the truth.

    Whatever, a win is a win.

  44. Buc1987 Says:

    WalkdaPlank…I’m thinking if I remain on this site I’m just going to have to skip over any of the Lovie’s Lovers comments. I mean I was running all over the place with my hands in the air when they got the win today, like they won the SB or something. If that’s not a Bucs fan, then I must be doing something wrong.

    I wanted Jameis soooo bad if anyone remembers. Some called me being a biased Noles fan and I scoffed at them. I wanted him because I KNEW that he was exactly what this team needed. His passion a fire for the game rivals Brady. Not saying his play just yet. The passion though. Oh boy. Jameis running out onto the field to congratulate the special teams after they made a FG defines who he is. Saw him do it after they made a freaking extra point even. Still the kid is only a rookie so fans need to cut him some slack and back off.

    Close your eyes for a bit and imagine Jameis Winston in say 2 seasons from now. If that doesn’t put a smile on your face I don’t know what will.

  45. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’ve said in all me postings, Our Bucs play well after defeat. Can..Will..we win 2 in a row. Don’t laugh..It can be done…LOVIE BOO BIRDS!,

  46. Eric Says:

    Well the week before we had tons of yards and lost.

    I don’t remember anybody saying that did not count.

    They did stop them on the last drive, with Matt Ryan having a chance to beat you at home. With no time constraint.

    I hope 87 was at least watching………..

  47. Eric Says:

    And you know just sometimes achieving a turn over is a good defensive play, not the offense just giving it to you.


  48. JAB83 Says:

    Destro… Not sure what that handle means but I like it from the ATL….

    I agree completely, however yards/stats are for losers!!!

    Personally the only stat I care about is turnovers!!! AND REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY HAPPEN….. Having them is ALLWAYS a key!!!!

    Today they might of been gifted to is BUT we had to get them and capitalize on them for them to matter….

    And while I might be drunk posting….




  49. WalkdaPlank Says:


    Kwon chasing down Julio and stripping the ball and ruining it back 20 yards, that’s a good defensive play.

    Matty Ice bobbling a low snap, and rolling it over right to Jacquies Smith is the offense giving it to you.


  50. Buc1987 Says:

    Eric…yes I did watch all of the OT. I was ranting and raving so bad that Lovie didn’t use those TO’s before Atl tied the game. That I was told to go outside and leave the house before I went into cardiac arrest. I still say the Bucs go 5-11 but hope they win much more than that, but I don’t see it in Lovie Smith.

  51. Buc1987 Says:

    Jab83…I’m just as happy as you about the win. If not more than you. I also posted while drinking numerous times. It’s more fun that way. I truly do hope that you and OneLovie are right and I’m wrong. Then again I was on the other side of that as well a few months back when fans were hoping I was right about JW and they were wrong. We’ll see about Lovie and I hope I’m 100% wrong, but I don’t think I am.

  52. JAB83 Says:

    Het 87 do us all a favor and spare us your sofa king we taught it post and find a new site to TROLL!!!!


    Do what you Fans of Depression do best… Be quite and curled up in your little hole until something negative happens so you can come out and talk as if your relavent and people actualy care about what you say….

    Or stay a Troll and post we taught it dog poo…. Don’t mater to me…. Just wish you would figure out what you really want other then being a Fan of Depression or TROLL…

  53. Eric Says:


    I said sometimes!

    87 I’m not so sure on the timeout thing. I could see if you were up by three so if they scored a TD you could come back.

    But when your up 7?

    As it was Atlanta was in great haste when they scored.

    It’s at least debatable, and I don’t think every coach n the league would use timeouts in that situation.

  54. OneLove Says:


    I’m glad your back you SEXY ass [email protected]%[email protected]%!! Don’t let this drunk post convince you otherwise! This means i’m teeliing the truth!!

    It’s not about being right or wrong brother!! We all want the same thing!! We all want to win!! And with this young talent we have on offense, I am really excited about our potential for the next few years!! I did close my eyes and imagined Jameis 3 years from now and I have to admit… I’m HARD AS A ROCK!!! OH MY!!

  55. Eric Says:

    Oh and those fearing Romo he is not eligible to come back till week 11. So we got a very bad Giant defense and then Cassell.

    I feel good.

  56. WalkdaPlank Says:

    87 I’m you. I want to be wrong, but I just don’t see Lovie Smith as the answer.

    I will admit I was wrong about Jameis. It’s too early to tell whether he will be a bust or a home run, but you cannot deny the fire he has and how he brings it to this team. JaMarcus Russell didn’t do that, Vince Young didn’t do that. He didn’t play well at all against Tennessee or Carolina, but he damn sure helped us win today, and should’ve won last week had Lovie’s defense not blown a 24 point lead, and helped us light up Jacksonville despite the D getting slaughtered as well.

    I was wrong about Jameis, and I hope to be wrong about Lovie. But I think that’s apples and oranges. Lovie is a whole different case.

  57. JAB83 Says:

    Sorry 87…. You and The guy who likes to be called Lovies dog poo despite hating Lovie are Marks…. Your continued negativety is no longer acceptable to me personally….. AND I HAVE TAKEN IT PERSONAL…..

    37,is close to being a mark but I am.not 100% on him yet….

    I apologies if this offended you… Perhaps your just a depressed fan… If so I get that and I’m sorry…. BUT the hope is back…..

    LOVIE learned what he needed to do to build a winner… You might not agree but he is doing a heck of a job putting the pieces into place for the long run!!!! You think he has done nothing because your to narrow minded to see the big picture!!!! Stop incorraging a witch hunt!!!!

    Be a Fan of Inspiration!!!!!

    Lovie learned in the basement. ..
    Offense is what is needed to help a dominate D WIN!!!!

    He is owed respect for putting it. Together if you’re gonna bash him for being in charge!!!!

  58. Buc1987 Says:

    Jab83….Where’s Realist, DallasBuc and Tmaxcon?

    I’m here. I have nothing to hide. In fact you sound just like me when I had season tickets in 2013. I was on this site looooooooooooooooooooooong before you. I’ve been a fan for over 25 years and have spent a TON of money on this team. I’ve seen horrible Buc coach’s many times and you have your opinion and I have mine. You to trying to rid fans of this team from this site because they’re are critical of Lovie Smith to me makes you look like a fool. You are not a bigger fan than me. It’s not even close actually. You won’t rid anyone away from this site with your foolish annoying rants about them not being true Buc fans. The mere fact that most of us regs were still on this blog through all of last season’s 2-14 nightmare doesn’t say that we are not true fans. It says the opposite. The fact that we come in here day in and day out SAYS that were true Buc fans. If not we wouldn’t even bother coming to this site. I hope that clears things up for you, but I doubt it will.

  59. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Being a fan doesn’t mean bowing down to the team and viewing everything through rose colored glasses. This wasn’t some dominant victory that shows us we’re close to being a good team. It was a game that was +4 in the turnover margin and needed an OT escape to win. Not gonna get many +4 turnover days. Lovie just isn’t a good enough coach to take us where we want to go. Just like Schiano wasn’t. Just like Josh Freeman and Mike Glennon weren’t good enough. Jameis makes this a very attractive job, we’ll get a good coach when we fire Lovie. But he’s always going to be a hinderance to success.

    Jameis success will be in spite of Lovie, very little to do with him. His defenders seem to think he’s a level below Belichick, he just needs his Brady and he’s winning us 4 Super Bowls. It’s pathetic and sad, but they seem convinced.

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    In simple terms. Fans wouldn’t come here everyday to post if they weren’t true fans. Even Realist, DallasBuc, and Tmaxcon are true fans. I can prove it to you actually.

    2 weeks ago after I got home from the Jags game. I went on here and clicked on the Open Thread for that game. DallasBuc was at the very bottom of the thread and his comment went something like this “Please Bucs don’t rip my heart out again and lose this game.”

    In 2013 I called fans out and told them that they were not real fans because all summer long in here they bashed Josh Freeman. I defended him by calling them not real Bucs fans. I told them all that Freeman was going to make them all look like the terrible fans they were. So I get where you’re coming from, but you’re wrong and so was I.

  61. JAB83 Says:

    Fair enough 87 I will lay off ya for the week because I know you can’t bash coaching!!

    As far as me classifying different types of fans…. I can do that because its what I do…. Liberty University Sports Management degree brother!!!!…..

    Fans have an impact of a teams success…. To deep to explain now so just tale my word for it….

    As the 12th man its like being at work supporting your management… . . you don’t have to lyiske it but dont it worst by not doing your job…. When someone comes along and makes things better…. Be excited!!!! Might not be how or what you wanted but its clearly getting better…. SO DO YOUR PART TO MAKE IT THE BEST!!!!

  62. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’ve been critical of Lovie over the last few weeks. I can’t say that my confidence has been restored, but at the same time I thought the coaching was pretty good today. I love the decision to go for it on 4th and one. That took onions – onions I wasn’t sure he had. For once he played to win the game. It’s hard to change your style and beliefs, but at least for today it appeared he did just that. I literally was shocked we snapped the ball.

    You don’t get 4 takeaways in a game unless you are doing something right. Were we lucky on a couple of them? Absolutely. Good teams get lucky. I’m not saying we are a good team, but I do believe we are on the right path. I don’t know if that path includes Lovie, but I’m not so sure it doesn’t. Bottom line the head coach is responsible for everything. It’s not fair to blame him for everything when we lose, then give him no credit when we win. It doesn’t work like that, no matter how much you want it to. The key now is to get on a streak. It feels like forever since we won 2 in a row, or had a 500 record in November.

  63. JAB83 Says:

    Yeah Dog Poo…..

    Your still dog poo….

    Sorry…. Enjoy eating poo all week!!!!

  64. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    And you enjoy putting your nuts in every dudes face while having Lovie’s in yours OneJAB83Love!

  65. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    One thing that is very clear to me is that this team was prepared for this game. Our defense is awful, but we sure as hell rally to the football. That shows that they are trying. They are stripping and punching at the ball on nearly every tackle. Every now and then, that works! That strip of Julio was game changing. I don’t think that can be overstated.

    Offensively, the growth of our offense and in particular JW is amazing. I love the way this kid plays football. Did he look scared to any of you? Did the moment look too big for him? Did he look like a rookie? Not to me. He is going to have some more bad games, but overall his growth is astounding. I didn’t expect it to happen this fast. I thought he would start to turn it on the last 4 or 5 weeks. I love the way he plays. This kid is trying to block for his RB!!!! Who does that? He isn’t scared of anybody or anything. He’s pumping up the offensive line on the sideline. Ever see Freeman or Dilfer do that? I love his enthusiasm. It’s clearly rubbing off on the entire team. I love listening to him in his press conference. We got the right guy, and I couldn’t be more excited. Now lets get ready to beat the G-men!!!

  66. Buc1987 Says:

    Jab83…the one thing that confuses me though about you is that you keep saying that Lovie turned into an offensive coach while in his basement as if you were a fly on the wall in that basement.

    So I ask you. Have you ever looked at Koetter’s resume? If not I suppose you should before you start giving Lovie credit for the offense. It’s not Lovie son, it’s all Koetter. The defense is Lovie’s department, but since they look like garbage every week, you seem to blame the players and not Lovie. Again check Koetter’s resume on what he’s done for offenses.

  67. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    That’s what they do 87. Anything bad since Lovie starter is on Dominik or Schiano or Licht but not Lovie. Anything good is all Lovie and that’s that. It’s just that if we had an average coach we’d be 5-2 and really thinking playoffs. If not for Jameis we’re 2-5 and maybe 1-6. Lovie is coaching at a below average level yet he apparently deserves a full pass.

  68. Eric Says:

    Maybe this week we can have a bunch of yardage and turn the ball over several times and lose.

    Seems like that would make a lot of you happy.

    It’s all about yardage after all. Score is irrelevant.

  69. Buc1987 Says:

    HB…we FINALLY have our future franchise QB. The kid was running out onto the field to fire up the special teams after making an extra point. I mean are you kidding me? Am I dreaming or something? Does JW really play for the Bucs? I wasn’t effing around after the draft when I dubbed him The Chosen One. Joe chose America’s QB for reasons many can’t understand, but I love that it irks some of them. We got him man, so let’s enjoy the ride for the next 10-15 years or so, because he ain’t ever leaving TB. It’s why I told the haters early in the season. You don’t know what you’re talking about and you better get used to him. Still there’s fans on here that are critical of him even in this game today. They expect him to be Joe Montana and forget that he’s ONLY a rookie. He’s going to get better and better and better. So watch out NFL the Bucs and JW are coming for you.

  70. Buc1987 Says:

    No Eric to me it’s all about W’s. I’m far from a stats guy. I don’t need to look at the numbers all I need to do is watch Lovie’s D. Which I won’t do anymore or keep it to a minimum if I have to. Every QB has a simple formula to move downfield against Lovie’s D they unlock that formula after watching game tape of Lovie’s D. It’s not that hard to figure out and I’ve been told by my doctor to really keep my stress levels down. So not watching Lovie’s D has become part of keeping my stress down. Again I don’t need to see the numbers. I’ve already seen enough of his D last year and this one as well to know he doesn’t have a clue.

  71. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Jameis inspires so much hope for the future. Without his clutch play today it’s another loss for us. 3 straight third downs on the FG drive in OT is nice. Improvising to Doug Martin on third down is nice. He’s the hope.

    Who seriously thought Atlanta wasn’t at least getting the ball with a chance to tie/win when we got up 17 points? A 17 point lead and we have to feel like it’s just as likely to lose as win. Our win percentage there is in the 90’s, but oue coach adjustment makes it a 50/50 proposition. Where’s the hope in expecting to blow big leads? Of expecting the defense to constantly got beat by simple routes? Lovie is the dope.

  72. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    How anyone isn’t loving Jameis is beyond me. Not sure what else he could do to win them over. I guess maybe the fantasy geeks could say he isn’t putting up huge numbers, but that’s the very reason why I hate fantasy football. Football isn’t about stats, it’s about making plays when it counts. Jameis does that – time and time again.

    One thing I disagree with you a bit is saying Lovie has nothing to do with the offense. I don’t believe that. I’ve been critical of him because our offense went “turtle”. I didn’t blame Koetter, because I believe Lovie is ultimately in control. If I criticize him for going turtle, how can I not give him credit when the offense plays with some onions? You simply can’t do that. I believe Lovie has his fingerprints on any and everything this team does. When it is unsuccessful, he gets the blame, but when it’s successful he gets the credit. It’s only fair. His fate will be decided by how we finish this season. It will all work itself out. I for one hope we turn it around and he comes back next year. I don’t want a coaching change, and I really don’t feel comfortable wanting a man to lose his job (I made a special exception for Schiano). No matter if it’s good or bad, it is clear Lovie is building a team here, and that sometimes takes time. If we continue to see progress, he should be allowed to continue building. If we don’t, then we will move on. But make no mistake, continuing to change coaches every two years is not the recipe for success. It’s not impossible, but the chances aren’t good.

  73. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I don’t understand our lack of ability to cover a simple slant. It drives me beyond crazy, because it seems like the only throw teams make on us. However, I find it nearly impossible to believe that Lovie doesn’t know how to coach a defense to stop a slant. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s so basic I just don’t believe it. Perhaps our corners are just so bad they just can’t do it. It wouldn’t matter who was coaching me, I couldn’t stop Julio Jones from catching a slant. Maybe it’s the same thing with our corners. Maybe they just can’t do it because they aren’t good enough. If you really think about it, that makes more sense. It’s not like Lovie hasn’t been successful coaching defense.

  74. Eric Says:

    Well I just watched the post game speech from Lovie, giving the game ball to Kwon.

    This team plays hard for this guy. They respect him. Especially Jameis. They sure as hell don’t think he is clueless.

    That is half the battle.

    I expect good things. As I did last week when I was by myself defending Lovie.

    Go bucs.

  75. James Says:

    I’m not sure Winston had a great game. He managed the game. Name one game manager outside of Trent Dilfer that has won a super bowl. I am excited to watch Winston grow and take over a game like Rodgers or Luck (last season) but the he was barely over .50 completion percentage. He hasn’t turned the ball over in what two games? Which is outstanding and I dig it but get off his nuts please and be honest with yourself. The D is a nightmare and Lovie is a D minded coach. The game has clearly passed him by. Bring in a offensive minded coach and a D coordinator like Monte Kiffen, let him run the D and the head coach run the O. It’s not a negative attitude, it’s a real thought. I love what Winston is doing but he has to improve the completions to keep the defense off the field.

  76. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    There’s no way the corners can be so bad they can’t cover a slant. There has to be practice squaders or even CFL or Arena players that can cover a slant. The defense is just predictable, teams know what routes will open up when in that defense. It’s more than just slants that are open too, the slant is the most annoying and glaring one. There’s been no attempt to adjust the defense or switch up looks so teams know what to do. Right now any success we have on defense is predicated on turnovers and not forcing teams to punt.

  77. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m going to say this, and a lot are going to disagree, but it’s the truth: No coaches in the NFL are clueless. Most of you have no idea how hard it is to get to that level. You have to be so good at what you do to get one of only 32 jobs like it in the world. Every single NFL coach that has ever coached forgets more football than any of us will ever know. You wouldn’t be able to carry a real football conversation with a football coach. None of us could. Coaches that aren’t successful fail because of many reasons, but lack of football IQ isn’t one of them.

  78. WalkdaPlank Says:


    The only Super Bowl the Bucs have they won with a game manager at QB.

    Never understood the negativity in that moniker. Managing the game is not a bad thing.

    How do you know there are corners in the CFL that can cover a slant? And more importantly, how do you know there’s been no attempt to adjust the defense? I saw an adjustment today. We stopped putting Jenkins on Jones for one. Second, we started playing more physical at the line of scrimmage. Did you not notice as the game went on, the slants became more contested? It didn’t matter though, as the best WR in football was still able to make plays. But to say there was no adjustments is plain ignorant. I get your frustration with Lovie (I share much of it), but don’t make untrue statements.

  80. Buc1987 Says:

    HB…of course we’re going disagree about something, it’s only been that way since I entered the site.lol Sure I’ll agree with you on two accounts to a degree 4 and 1’s and 4th and goals those are Lovie’s decision to make. I don’t however agree that he calls the plays. Perhaps he makes the decision on whether to run or pass on certain occasions, but he doesn’t dial up the play in itself. That’s just my opinion, and neither of us will know one way or the other. The second thing we agree on is that I’ve always been 100% against firing a coach only 2 years into his tenure. You of all people know that seeing how we got into all those battles on whether or not to can Schiano. For the record by the end of that season I wanted him gone too. I defended him for that very reason actually. I didn’t want to start all over again. In hindsight though had we kept him as coach, Winston would not be our QB and Glennon would. So it worked out fine as far as I’m concerned. So of course I’m pulling for Lovie to succeed, I just don’t see it though. I’ll let everyone know when I see it. So far no one has really made a credible argument about what good they see him as coach in my opinion.

    Dang these long posts are killing me. It’s getting late and for a guy who proclaimed he wouldn’t be posting anymore until Lovie is fired, I’ve posted a shyteload tonight.

    For the well wishers. I’m getting physically better. So I think it was too much stress. I’m almost about 90% now. Still haven’t had a buzz in over 2 months though and that’s killing me. Got rid of the gastritis, but I lowered my acid levels too low and got diverticulitis again. So antibiotics means no alcohol for another week atleast. BOOOOOO

    HB…P.S. these newbies have nothing on you and the battles we used to have, it’s like child’s play compared to those days. Easy pleasy.

    How do you know there are corners in the CFL that can cover a slant? And more importantly, how do you know there’s been no attempt to adjust the defense?

    Well I know there’s been no attempt to adjust because teams use the same things over and over and over again, and they work over and over and over again. And the CFL isn’t a trash league, if they can’t cover slants every game would be 55-54, but according the Wiki they had a 12-6 game today. They probably covered some slants in that game pretty well.

    I mean these guys have to be able to cover them, maybe not great but better than letting them succeed at a 90% clip. The defense as we know opens up in the middle because the MLB drops into the hole, opening it up. And teams keep exploiting it. Matt Ryan completed 18 of 19 in the 2nd half so if there was an adjustment at halftime it didn’t work clearly.

  83. Eric Says:

    Bring in Monte Kiffin???????????

    And in his seven games in the NFL Winston hasn’t taken over a game like Brady.

    Can’t take much more……..

  84. Buc1987 Says:

    James….stop stomping on our rookie QB’s nuts. BTW you’re wrong he hasn’t turned the ball over in 3 games…in a row.

  85. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “I’m not sure Winston had a great game. He managed the game. Name one game manager outside of Trent Dilfer that has won a super bowl. ”


    LMAO!!! Did you really just type this? Have you perhaps forgotten about when we won a Super Bowl? My goodness it’s amazing how quickly people forget! How about Russell Wilson (I think he’s a great QB, but he is a bit of a game manager)?

    What you seem to not understand is that he’s a rookie. Rookies typically are really bad. The game is moving way too fast, and the information is too much for them to process. You also seem to forget that he is missing most of his targets. Jackson – out. Murphy – out. ASJ – out. Evans – in and out for most of the game, as well as most of the season. He is throwing to undrafted rookies with only one offensive lineman that played last year. Do you realize how amazing that is? Do you have any clue?

    Stats do not tell the full story. He must have had 80 yards in pass interference yards that don’t show up in the stat sheet. There were drops. He’s making difficult throws to guys that really aren’t open. That’s going to bring the completion percentage down. You don’t see him throwing Marcus Mariota-like 2 yard passes. He’s making big boy throws to guys I’ve never heard of. But some people want Andrew Luck numbers. I blame fantasy football. Me, I’ll take a guy like Jameis or Russell Wilson any day of the week. All they do is win, which is all I care about. You can have your pansy arse fantasy football crap.

  86. Buc1987 Says:

    You guys…. playing with Hawaiian Buc is like playing fire.

    Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Better make a cup of coffee, it’s getting late.

  87. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Absolutely not – Schiano wasn’t clueless. He was just a terrible fit in the NFL. As for his knowledge of football, I have no doubt he’s very intelligent. He lost the locker room, which is when a change has to be made (regardless of length of tenure).

  88. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL I posted that before HB posted his last post. I just didn’t hit submit.

    You guys WON’T win I’m telling you….it will drag on into the night and HB will come out on top every time.

    That’s the props I’m giving you Hawaiian Buc. We both loooove the fight.

  89. Bo Says:

    Funny how all the Jameis haters disappeared… Where R U? I said it from day one, this kid loves to prove people wrong! He still has a ways to go…but there’s something intangible about his positive being.. He’s a WINNER! It’s gonna be fun to watch this unfold.. STOKED!!!

  90. WalkdaPlank Says:


    I know this is really irrelevant, and don’t mean to argue, but did he lose the locker room? They did finish 4-4 after all. If he did it was nothing like the way Rah lost the locker room.

  91. Eric Says:

    Manning threw about 15 slants tonight and Green Bay couldn’t do jack crap about it……looked like nobody was covering it at all.

  92. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Are the CFL guys covering a Matt Ryan pass to Julio Jones? I don’t think you get how good these NFL players are. I also don’t think you realize the talent differential between the CFL and NFL. As an example, one of the best players year in and year out in the CFL, Chad Owens, was cut twice in the NFL (once by the Bucs).

    Yes, the adjustments didn’t work. However, they were made. I could see it, because I don’t watch a game with blind hate. I don’t make up my mind about a guy and base all my opinions off of that hatred. Nobody gets more frustrated with getting tormented by slants than I do, but there is zero doubt in my mind we tried to adjust. We just couldn’t stop it, period. If the other guys are quicker, faster, and have better technique, they will continue to do whatever they want to do. In my opinion, that’s exactly what’s happening. I didn’t have that belief coming into the game, but watching it with an open mind, I see it differently now.

  93. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Lol, pretty much. Arguing is why I come to the site.

  94. Buc1987 Says:

    BTW excellent post about JW a few minutes ago. I think you just stuck a stick of dynamite up this dudes rear end and lit it.

  95. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Yes, I still think he did. I didn’t hear one player defending him after he got fired, did you? When the team tells him they aren’t going to do what he’s asking you to do (bum rushing the kneel down), that’s the indication it’s over. Those 4 wins were cute, but I think so many forget how bad it really was.

  96. Buc1987 Says:

    I actually credit HB for honing my skills back in 2013. I was like his grasshopper. LOL
    I blogged before on other sites and held my ground well until I ran into JBF and met my match in HB. It was fun though back then. So like I said any of these new Buc fans that come on here and try to battle me simply won’t get anywhere most of the time.

    The best is when HB and I agree and we start tagging up on guys. It’s like not even fair.

  97. WalkdaPlank Says:


    Oh I haven’t forgotten. What was it, like a 12 game losing streak or something? I’m not going to argue at all, as I wanted Schiano gone that year.

    I just find it amazing how Schiano can lose a locker room and win four games, and Lovie can have all the respect in the world from his guys and only win two.

    BTW, Lovie has to win 6 more games this season to match Schiano’s first two seasons.

  98. Lamdog Says:

    WalkdaPlank: What game were you watching? Only 8 penalties for Tampa though not a perfect game 43 yards, compared to 16 for 142 last game. They (defense) did not cave in the most important time. Which was OT and not giving up the slant pass on 4th and short.

    Love is dog poo poo: You damn Skippy its Schiano fault. I do not know who is more blind the Schiano supporters or Mariota. As a Winston’s fan not Bucs fan, do you not understand how fortunate Tampa to have the first pick, with a Heisman winner from a in state school, with a coach who was fired after going 10-6, who took a team to the Super Bowl, one conference championship and 3 division championship. Schiano and Domiinick drove this team into the ground.

    Disappointed the defense regressed from last season. If Tampa does not have one of the best O-line by season end will be surprised. The only thing Tampa’s fans should hope for? This team is built along the lines of Pittsburgh and not New England.

    Finally a shout out to Jimmy Johnson: Comparing Winston to Rothisberger is more accurate than Ryan.

    Siege the Day.

  99. Buc1987 Says:

    Well I’m standing by my 5-11 prediction. Let’s all hope I’m wrong, because if the D continues down this path and the team does finish 5-11 with a horrible looking D. I don’t think Lovie keeps his job no matter how good the offense is that some fans think he’s the one running. I don’t want to start all over again with a new coach no way, no how, but as of right now I’m still seeing 5-11. The win today felt great and just pisses me off more though that Lovie didn’t go for the win in the Skins game on the goal line or our Bucs would be 4-3 right now and riding a 3 game winning streak.

    Okay I’m out for the night…Go Bucs. Go Lovie and prove me wrong.

  100. WalkdaPlank Says:


    I completely agree. I was speaking about penalties as a whole, not this game specifically (although there were 3 boneheaded offsides penalties in the first half, one that negated a Kwon interception). As a whole, Lovie’s team has not been disciplined, would you agree?

  101. nick Says:

    Jameis seems like a winner too me, hes looking good

  102. Bo Says:

    @LamDog…amen to that! Schiano and Dominick left a dumpster fire! Think about this defense with Talib, Mike Bennett and our 1st round pick (Sheldon Richardson) back for Revis.

  103. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    I do think it’s pretty telling that Lovie hasn’t lost the locker room. I think it shows they believe in him, and they respect him. I don’t think that was the case with Schiano. I think with Schiano there was a real lack of trust, from the whole Freeman fiasco, as well as the alleged rigged captain vote.

    From what I’m seeing, one thing is very clear: we are getting better. We may not win too many games, but I can see something starting to get built. How much time it’s going to take to start seeing real results is a mystery, but I truly believe we are headed in the right direction. I don’t know if Lovie is the coach of the future, but I’m not going to crucify the guy after beating a 6-1 team in their building.

  104. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    LMAO. We had some good battles! We don’t agree much, but I love your passion for this team. I think you’re wrong for a lot, but you sure as hell seem to have hit a home run with your belief in Winston (of course, so did I, lol).

This women actually threatened our lives said to ” watch your back” ( I hope she was joking ) other kids were tapping my back so hard to show off their grins as Marty Ice marched down the field to tie it up. Had peanuts thrown at us from fans as BUCS won. Felt really good to get a hard fought win on the road. It’s still a work in progress but let’s get back to back wins I love winning.

  108. Battletested Says:

    Great win for the bucs.. Big step in the right direction.
    Love JW passion and fierceness. A definite keeper so all the idiots that blasted him for Marriota please eat your crow and like it.
    As for as our defense – we need gotta play better : much better. The turnover game is good but can’t count on that every game. Our corners have to step up and safeties much help out more especially on the teams best receivers.
    Julio jones beats any corner most times but we have to contain him and especially on 3rd downs and crunch time.
    I’m not a Lovie fan but definitely not a Lovue Hater. He did great with far inferior talent on defense so I’m sure his coaching talents is there but maybe not the personnel. Gotta pay for the best or draft them. Great win and hopefully we can take down the G-men. They have lost 2 straight so they will have the guns blazing. We got this for the 4th win.

  113. Johnny "America's Commenter" Dejay Says:

    Like it or not, Lovie gets credit for this win. His calm demeanor seems to be a perfect fit for developing Winston, and this season is not as much about winning or losing as it is about developing Winston.

    The new o-line players are ahead of schedule, Winston is ahead of schedule, and Kwon is developing at MLB. This team’s young nucleus is going to be strong for many years to come.

    While it’s fair to blame Lovie for cutting Penn, Zuttah, and Revis too early, those guys weren’t going to be a part of the perennial playoff runs that start next season. It’s also fair to blame Lovie for wasting cash on Cousins, Collins, Johnson, and McCown, but those guys were stop gaps, not cornerstones.

    Lovie deserves credit for two pretty solid drafts that have set the stage for a bright future and he deserves credit for keeping the ship from sinking last season and weathering the storm early this season. He certainly deserves at least the 2016 season to prove that he can guide this team to a winning season.
