Panthers Fans Are Crushing Bucs Fans

November 26th, 2015

jameis 0930Some embarrassing data, real numbers, have appeared on

They’re not pretty for Bucs fans.

Early results of Pro Bowl balloting are in, and 13 Carolina Panthers have the most votes in the NFL, or the second-most votes at their respective positions.

No Buccaneers made the cut.

What the hell? It’s not like Carolina is a big market, or a wildly popular team nationally. Their fans are just stepping up. There’s no other explanation.

If that can’t inspire you to vote, then Joe’s not sure anything could. Click here to register your Pro Bowl votes. Joe just did. Twice.

Fan voting represents one-third of the decision on who earns a Pro Bowl berth. Another third is coaches votes, and the final third goes to players’ votes.

    Come on everyone. We gotta rep our team and go hard. Band wagoners can hit the road.

    Joe, you said yourself, the Pro Bowl isn’t even worth watching. Popularity contest.

  3. Couch Fan Says:

    I rather none of our players make it to the pro bowl. That way we dont have to worry about any silly injuries. Pro Bowl is a joke anyways. 10-0 gets you a lot of band wagon votes.

  4. Trubucfan22 Says:

    I dont have any faith in the bucs fan base to support this team with much passion. Sure there a few here and there, but not the amount to win pro bowl bids.

  5. BucTrooper Says:

    They’re lucky they have running water in Carolina. Who cares? Let them have the meaningless Pro bowl.

    I love the Bucs but who is really a pro bowler on our team.

    McCoy has 6 sacks but we’ve been bashing his play and tackles
    Lavonte just only recently started playing like a pro
    Our Cornerback rotation hurt Sterling Moores chances
    Alexander is a great player but he might get suspended
    Jacquies disappeared after his great start

    Jameis Winston just started giving people that OMG franchise feeling
    Mike Evans is doing good but we must not forget the drops
    Vincent Jackson has been injured
    Ali Marpet deserved it but his injury will hurt his chances

    Connor Barth is my favorite kicker but he got here late

    Doug Martin should be the only ProBowler and that’s just going to raise his contract for next year.

    I’ll be ok with no pro bowlers and that anger used for next year to make our team better

    The Pro Bowl is complete joke now

    – It’s a popularity contest
    – The players don’t play hard (scared on injury)
    – The best players are often overlooked

    The NFL should just completely eliminate it

  8. Michael Johnson Says:

    Any NFL team 11-0 would be crushing a 5-5 team in fan base popularity. People just love a winner..period. We are rising though. Lets see if we are heading towards a peak or back towards mediocrity.
    Overall, we are playing better..especially on Defense. Not three-fourths of where we need to be..but better. Thanks to our ever improving offense, If our D just plays above average..we will win. Why not 3 in a row?
    GO BUCS!

  9. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Aristotle nailed it. Who really cares? There will be some players in there because they play for NY teams or Boston..Chicago..major markets. When L.A. gets another team that’ll make it just that much harder for Buc players.

    People be easy,understand cam is in the fifth season of his offense. They should be making some noise. He had a career day last week and what do you know Jamies matched him number for number in his rookie campaign. Our time is coming (very quickly I might add)but like I told you a few months ago “just wait on it”… I assure it’s coming. We’ll be the most spoiled and arrogant fans in the league here shortly. And let me say this the cats won’t say it publicly but they see us coming. They see us coming.

    We play the kitties one more time. The final game of the regular season. We don’t like them and vice-versa. It ought to be a pretty good headknocker. Carolina still hasn’t won a Stupor Bowl. We’ll always be ahead of them on that score. 🙂

  12. softastissueMcCoy93 Says:

    Honestly, Im a huge bucs fan, other than Doug Martin who on this team in the first half of the season has played to a Pro Bowl level? We are turning the corner and im looking forward to a playoff berth more than this Pro Bowl shtt.

  13. R.O Says:

    Who cares.. One less game to get hurt. I.e….Lee Roy Selmon….

  14. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I hate the Panthers…but they deserve it this year.

    When it was nfc vs afc I watched. Not at all since it changed. They removed to competition.

  15. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Bonzai you may be right,it may be they’re time. I’m not totally sole tho. I remember the Vikings winning a ton of games in the reg season to lose come tournament time. Shiny record are nice but mean diddly in the tournament as you know. But if it is they’re time they better get-r-done this season. Cause I’m telling you the Buccs won’t be playing second fiddle to any team is this league starting next season bro.

  16. Brandon Says:

    Oh, no! Let’s all complain that our players aren’t getting voted in to a meaningless game that no players want to play in and nobody wants to watch.
