  2. Captain Crunch Says:

    WK16 and lovie still doesn’t know who he wants at CB?!?! Johnthan Banks is starting today, he’s and upgrade to Jude but I expect him to be rusty since he hasn’t been starting since earlier in the year. Lovie just wasted this kids year smh.

  3. USMC Says:

    Checking in from Pittsburgh today. GO BUCS.

  4. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    LETS ROLL!!!!!

  5. "TheKevin" Says:

    Worse fan base in the league. Pathetic fans. Not real fans on here just a bunch of haters that are as smart as a wet paper bag full of sh it.

  6. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Hey I’m a new and loyal fan…more of us out there! Give it time…Jameis will turn the fans around in time!!!

  7. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Let’s roll

  8. Bucnut2 Says:

    Go Bucs!

  9. "TheKevin" Says:


    I hope you’re right

  10. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hoping Dougie has a HUGE day. Would love to see him win the rushing title

  11. Bucnut2 Says:

    Good series by defense

  12. KentuckyBuc Says:

    Come on Jameis! Lets get that win for Lovie

  13. Tampa Tony Says:

    Wow, they didn’t score?

    Sign Lovie to an extension!!!

  14. Bucnut2 Says:

    Wow JW just threw into triple coverage

  15. Another J Says:

    I hope Sterling Moore isn’t too banged up, We need him.

  16. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice throw JW!

  17. Tampa Tony Says:

    They are so predictable on first down.

  18. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice decision by JWW

  19. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    JW looks great…good decision making!hes got this!!!

  20. Couch Fan Says:

    Nice. Coulda been a TD there but ill take it on the 5

  21. Bucnut2 Says:

    great blocking for Martin

  22. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    That’s what I’m talking about!!!!!!!!!!

  23. cmurda Says:

    The games may no longer have significant meaning but it was nice to see a special teams play set one up. We haven’t had many of those. Hard to tell if Martin was in. If he wasn’t down, I would guess it would be hard to overturn that.

  24. Couch Fan Says:

    First blocked punt under Lovie’s tenure.

  25. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Get them!!!!!

  26. Tiger team Says:

    A lot of love for the Bears from the announcers.

  27. Buccfan37 Says:

    Dink dunk dink dunk, the Bucs achilles heel.

  28. Tampa Tony Says:

    Nice special teams play

  29. Newbucsfan2 Says:


  30. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Let’s go Jw

  31. Tampa Tony Says:

    A 3rd down stop????? Nice!!!

    First down run coming up after commercial break

  32. Bucnut2 Says:

    Lets go Doug!

  33. Bucnut2 Says:

    That’s a catch

  34. cmurda Says:

    That was a very weak penalty call against Smith. That only happens because it’s the Bucs.

  35. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:


  36. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    F the refs!!! Come on Jw show em!!!!!

  37. Bucnut2 Says:

    Evans just prevented a pick

  38. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    lol evans is funny

  39. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW doesn’t look sharp

  40. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    A loser team is a loser team. Of course.

  41. Couch Fan Says:

    Typical Bucs, great play took back by penalty

  42. Tampa Tony Says:

    Another dumb penalty

  43. cmurda Says:

    Again, that penalty is only called because we are the Bucs. Another gay call.

  44. Buc Neckid Says:


  45. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    WTF just happened

  46. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    No doubt this defense is quitting now. So mentally soft, no way they recover from that.

  47. Newbucsfan2 Says:


  48. Tampa Tony Says:

    When the Bucs hold a team to a field goal loser Lovie thinks that’s a stop

  49. cmurda Says:

    How could we have facemasked before the INT. I don’t at all understand that penalty call and nothing was shown on TV to show what happened.

  50. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Let’s go d

  51. tnew Says:

    14-0 becomes 7-7 quick

  52. Bucnut2 Says:

    That’s bucs football. lots of penalties

  53. cmurda Says:

    The refs every game. Laughable. The refs every effing game. Effing laughable. Tell me that the Officials aren’t out for the Bucs.

  54. Tampa Tony Says:

    After today John Fox might have more wins at Ray Jay than loser Lovie

  55. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Went from interception to a bears TD what the hell man.

  56. Maxx Says:

    F’n penalties!!

  57. celly Says:

    Funny that they never showed that phantom facemask call…

  58. unbelievable Says:

    Both those penalties were absolutely outrageous. Only happens to the Bucs.

    The NFL hates the Bucs. Time to start a website that chronicles every single terrible, bullish!t call that gets called on us, and not on anyone else.

  59. Buc Neckid Says:

    Two penalties now against the BUCS i just did not get.
    Anybody see the Facemask ?
    Legit call or not??

  60. MaHaBoNe Says:

    soft soft both mentally and physically…. a team takes on its coaches demeanor

  61. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Refs change games with one bad call. They didn’t tell us who the face mask was on or show us an y replay of it. And it was the women reference who called it. I hope next year the refs find a new team to pick on

  62. jugheadfla Says:

    anyone know who the facemask penalty was on? cornerback?

  63. austinbucfan Says:

    this tv crew absolutely sucks. no replay on a penalty that overturns a defensive td, but the next mundane running play gets shown twice. dam

  64. Brian Says:

    Woman line judge threw that flag. What a c word.

  65. ChessMaster Says:

    There was no facemask that is why no replay on TV broadcast

  66. ChessMaster Says:

    Face mask on a J Smith did not happen.

  67. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Let’s go JW AND TEAM!!! Score!!!!

  68. Bucnut2 Says:

    Guys we are out of it. Better draft position if we lose out

  69. MaHaBoNe Says:

    never seen a pro team fold as quick when a call goes against them! We have a team full of soft players.

  70. unbelievable Says:

    The NFL hates the Bucs. Absolutely horrible call. There was no penalty.

  71. tb Says:

    Damn these refs!

  72. Bucnut2 Says:

    Offense has been awful the last 3 weeks

  73. MadMax Says:

    According to yahoo box recap it was Jacquies Smith….I missed it too and would love to see the replay.

  74. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Penalties are terrible yeah, but the defense immediately quits instead of stiffening up. Wish I was in Vegas, would have put $1,000 on a TD after that non-INT. Softest defense both in scheme and personnel.

  75. Buccfan37 Says:

    I wore out the mute button on all these stupid commercials.

  76. tb Says:

    I hate these commentators!

  77. Bucnut2 Says:

    It’s not the refs, we suck

  78. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Until they become consistant winners the calls will always go against them.

  79. tnew Says:

    found the face mask. Verner lazily stuck his hand up to slow the receiver up and his hand got caught in the face mask. FYI, that WAS illegal hands to the face, that wasn’t a personal foul face mask.

  80. MadMax Says:

    Ok they just said it was Verner who did the facemask.

  81. Rob Says:

    Penalties cost us four games plus today’s debacle. Fire Lovie. No control over these clowns

  82. Buc Neckid Says:

    And don’t forget that the BUCS had to challenge an incomplete catch call
    These refs suck
    (no Offense to the female Line Judge)

  83. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Let’s go!!!!

  84. austinbucfan Says:

    oh wait, they just showed it 15 minutes later. and matt millen explained it. i feel better.

  85. jugheadfla Says:

    so they nicely miss that facemask on MArtin…..BS

  86. MadMax Says:

    Dangit Doug protect the ball!!

  87. Rob Says:

    And Martin fumbles…..again. Sigh. We are horrific

  88. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Fukc me

  89. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Chicago came to play hitting hard every play.

  90. ChessMaster Says:

    Why don’t the refs just put on Bears jerseys…it is obvious they are determined to decide all of our games.

  91. Tampa Tony Says:

    Doug will now be benched by loser Lovie

  92. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Hands to the face or facemask, doesn’t matter. Still an auto first. Dougie hurting fantasy owners right there, clear fumble.

  93. Buccfan37 Says:

    Murphy’s law kicks into gear.

  94. MaHaBoNe Says:

    wow….. here comes 7-14! the quit has already started. Get Lovie outta here! team hasn;t showed up last 3 weeks.

  95. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    That’s ok…we got this! Hold em defense!!!

  96. Tampa Tony Says:

    No one cares about fantasy!!! I care about real football

  97. MadMax Says:

    He was down but the refs hate us so Im not surprised.

  98. tnew Says:

    Wish we would have made Chicago wear navy

  99. jugheadfla Says:

    your talking about this swiss cheese defense right?

  100. cmurda Says:

    They finally showed the facemask call and the refs should be burned at the stake for that weak ass call. I don’t care what this incompetent announcer that I have to listen says.

  101. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Tampa Tony Says:
    December 27th, 2015 at 2:01 pm
    No one cares about fantasy!!! I care about real football

    And yet you’re a Bucs fan lol. We haven’t seen real football in years.

  102. tnew Says:

    Dog Poo, agree that it doesn’t matter in the change of possession. Just not the right call. Our defense is hard to watch.

  103. Bucnut2 Says:

    Here we go.

  104. jugheadfla Says:

    It’s pretty simple, Lovie has to go. this defense its pathetic. we need a new scheme. hopefully a 3-4.

  105. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Defense has quit. We need basically 7 new starters and new backups. And we trust Lovie the loser to do that? Its his defense full of quitters.

  106. J Says:

    Keep pushing the hype. Lol

  107. Bucnut2 Says:

    WOW we can’t stop the run

  108. Clearwater Wes Says:

    If the D is getting toasted they have been on the field too long and its hot out there. They will be spent in the 4th.

  109. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Stop this Sh@t!!!

  110. Bucnut2 Says:

    The bears are jamming it on us

  111. jugheadfla Says:

    Have we actually stopped anyone all year?

  112. Clearwater Wes Says:

    These players on the D are soft.

  113. Bucnut2 Says:

    Our offense has been terrible

  114. ndog Says:

    OMG McCoy made a play!

  115. tnew Says:

    Nice job, GMC.. I’ve been critical, but that was a Pro Bowl Play. 4 point swing

  116. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Held them…go Jw !!!!

  117. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Glad to see GMC showed up today

  118. MaHaBoNe Says:

    Why is it other teams players show up after their eliminated from the playoffs, and Tampa NEVER does? We have a loser pathetic coach whose more interested in being stubborn and unresponsive to the new NFL. The GAME has passed our coach by, FACT!!!! Can’t believe we’re going to waste another year with this guy. SMH

  119. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    How are we still looking this bad 31 games into the Lovie era of terror? The Bears are garbage! And it’s gonna be a big struggle to win this game. This is not progress to still be struggling to beat bottom 10 NFL teams at home.

  120. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Let’s score in these bit;;chs

  121. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Sims really

  122. jugheadfla Says:

    let the implosion begin

  123. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW looks like shiiit

  124. Tampa Tony Says:

    Team is so far away from being good

  125. cmurda Says:

    The offense and offensive line have been lethargic….again. This is a bad sign that towards the end of the year, we haven’t been able to sustain offense against not great defenses.

  126. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    I bet the people who think this is progress think Obama has been a great President.

  127. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    YAFD = Yet Another Flat Day

  128. Bucnut2 Says:

    This is a bad bears secondary and JW can’t figure it out.

  129. KentuckyBuc Says:

    One crap penalty, and our team puts their heads in the sand. All too familiar

  130. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Receivers got to get open, QB needs to get the ball out quickly.
    They look like they have ever played together before.

  131. tb Says:

    We haven’t done nothing on offense.

  132. Clearwater Wes Says:

    17-7 at the half.

  133. Tampa Tony Says:

    17-7 at halftime sounds about right

  134. Bucnut2 Says:

    CA anyone say JW not that good???

  135. tnew Says:

    Occasionally, this offense should call an easy quick throw, especially on third and mid short. We need a receiver to get open on the break.

  136. biggun Says:

    Why Simms?

  137. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice D

  138. Bucnut2 Says:

    Cutler 12-14, JW, the savior ???

  139. Clearwater Wes Says:

    The D is done.
    They look wipped. Giving up

  140. cmurda Says:

    This Defense is putrid. Never anything resembling a pass rush from the front 4.

  141. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Bucnutz your not a bucs fan so stfu. Jameis is the best thing on this team and you are always the one saying he “looks like sh1t” you might be slow. And Eddie Goldman ripped his helmet off on that sack. Of course the refs don’t see that. These bad refs are starting to get dangerous

  142. BucGator Says:

    I’m at the game. How did we go from an interception to a penalty? Pisses me off beyond all belief. I didn’t see it?

  143. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Wow….this second half could be Lovie’s future all of a sudden. If they quit he has to go. And they look mighty close to quitting…

  144. tnew Says:

    Nuthead, been tracking your posts for a while. Your bias is amazing. MM led his team to the first pick in next years draft and got his head coach fired. That would be better how?

  145. USMC Says:

    Anyone know what the bucs defense completion percentage is for opposing QBs?

    Has to be over %80 right? that’s ridiculous.

  146. Bucnut2 Says:

    The Bears have no weapons but are killing us

  147. MaHaBoNe Says:

    cutler 13 for 16! laughable! the quit for better draft picks in a game earlier than last year!

  148. ndog Says:

    And McCoy hurt again.

  149. Bucnut2 Says:

    Laugh at culter but he looks a LOT better than JW

  150. Buccfan37 Says:

    Jameis and the Bucs set for a second half comeback. Wishful thinking.

  151. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Lovie is a defencive coach and has a team that he had picked that can’t play D.
    He will be gone after next season if they don’t have a drastic turnaround and get really good.

  152. Aristotle Says:

    Can we draft a new defensive scheme! Embarrassing how every QB is perfect against us

  153. Couch Fan Says:

    Yup this game is going just how I expected it to.

  154. Aubpierce Says:

    Lovie couldn’t motivate if his life depended on it. I hope his job depends on it.

  155. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hey you jerks out there. Jw stinks of far. Take off your rose colored glasses.

  156. celly Says:


    You mean to tell me the 9 year veteran looks better than the rookie?


  157. MaHaBoNe Says:

    Lovie’s defense is OFFENSIVE!

  158. Bucnut2 Says:


  159. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Without the punt block this is a total laugher. I’m watching a lot of the Jets game and Lovie should be fired for that game too. Jets look great against the Pats. We’d be down 35-0 by now. Disgusting team and coaching.

  160. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    If Lovie stays he needs to get a true defensive coordinator new scheme or we are screwed next year.

  161. Supersam Says:

    Time for a new coach, and a new quarterback.

  162. Bucnut2 Says:

    REAL fans want us to succeed and don’t make excuses for any player.

  163. MaHaBoNe Says:

    only 1o minutes of possessing the ball…smh

  164. ChessMaster Says:

    HIRE Gene Chizik as DC!!!

  165. Supersam Says:

    Start Glennon in the 2nd half, this team needs a spark and Winston isn’t making it happen.

  166. MaHaBoNe Says:

    lol! the Stork is not the answer!

  167. ChessMaster Says:

    We don’t need a new coach, the NFL needs new refs.

  168. Aristotle Says:

    When QBs put career numbers in completions, you are bound to lose most games. Coverage is way tooooo soft

  169. tnew Says:

    I ask my question, why would you want a guy who had his coach fired, team played worse through the season and set his team up for the first pick in the draft over a guy whose helped his team triple their victory total?

    That being said, until we announce that Winston is moving to Defensive end or Safety or CB, you need to take of the white hood or orange and blue glasses regarding your opinions that he is the issue.

  170. ndog Says:

    Jameis has struggled so far but butnut for you not to call out Martin, whose fumbled killed that drive, just shows you simply are rooting against Jameus so why don’t you just find a new team as he isn’t going anywhere so you should.

  171. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    That’s ok…McCoy will rally the defense in the second half. That is if he doesn’t do his normal disappearing act after making one play.

  172. Bucnut2 Says:

    Teddy Bridgewater carved up the Bear’s defense and threw 4 TD passes last week. Anybody thing Teddy is better than JW?

  173. tb Says:

    Something needs to change cos the defense sucks.

  174. tnew Says:

    I think that some of our fans are still biased against Winston for the same reasons they were biased against Doug Williams.

  175. Bucnut2 Says:

    NDOG you are correct sir. Doug’s fumble was huge.

  176. Bucnut2 Says:

    I am rooting FOR JW. I just don’t think his is yet the SAVIOR that some of you and the JOES think.

  177. Frank Says:

    Supersam stfu you’re Either blind or just stupid to say that jameis Winston isn’t good. For Pete sake this team was actually in playoff talk this year. Something we never accomplished with Glennon as the starter.

  178. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Look at the Jets. In One Effing Year. Defending Lovie is a pathetic exercise. Todd Bowles takes a dump on Lovie.

  179. Bucnut2 Says:

    The Bears have a bad defense and JW has yet to figure it out

  180. Couch Fan Says:

    Theres only 1 guy to blame for our team constantly being dismantled by inferior teams on a weekly basis. And its not Winston.

  181. Wesley Says:

    God, Matt Millen is freaking annoying.

  182. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW is good at handing off

  183. Bucnut2 Says:

    Great play by JW

  184. Couch Fan Says:

    Like I said, Winston is not the problem! WOOOOO

  185. Frank Says:

    50 Yd touchdown! Still doubting Winston @supersam

  186. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    As is the weekly sermon

    Jameis Christ = Hope
    Lovie = Dope

    Until we smoke the dope, the hope cannot come to fruition.

  187. ChessMaster Says:

    No flag? Really?

  188. MaHaBoNe Says:

    who was it that called fer the Stork? lol

  189. cmurda Says:

    Nice drive boys

  190. BuccoDav Says:

    Great blocking!0

  191. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Go bucs!!!!!!!!!

  192. Buccfan37 Says:

    I have to hurry and get a comment in while the Bucs have the lead. Go Bucs!

  193. MaHaBoNe Says:

    it was a 3 man rush! should damn well be good blocking.

  194. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    My inner fan:

    Let’s get fired up! Let’s get fired up!

  195. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    That was a stop! Nice play Moore.

  196. ChessMaster Says:

    I think Sterling Moore has earned his spot on the team next year.

  197. USMC Says:

    Refs and that spot though.

  198. tnew Says:

    No WAY a first down.

  199. MaHaBoNe Says:

    looked like a good spot for Da’Bears, bad spot for the Bucco’s.

  200. ChessMaster Says:

    Ref’s Bears jerseys showing again.

  201. tnew Says:

    Not even close on either challenge

  202. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Hey bucnutz in sure the titans are always looking for new fans. Go to their website

  203. ChessMaster Says:

    Watch them call holding on Rainy next time…lol

  204. tnew Says:

    near side line judge appears to be missing a bunch of calls for us and making a bunch against

  205. Tampa Tony Says:

    Todd Bowles will win more in 1 year with the jets than loser Lovie will in 2 years here.

    The play calling on first down is awful

  206. Bucnut2 Says:

    Jimbo- been a Bucs fan for 25 years.Not going anywhere, just a realist fan

  207. ChessMaster Says:

    Running Martin on 1st down is the only call.

  208. Bucnut2 Says:

    Under throw by JW

  209. celly Says:

    Sometimes I wonder why its been so long since I’ve been back on the JBF comment section… and then I decide to read threads like this and remember why.

  210. tnew Says:

    JW missed but evans must jump on that deep ball

  211. Bucnut2 Says:

    Good throw and great protection

  212. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Here we go again!!!!!!!

  213. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Someone besides Evans needs to get open.

  214. Bucnut2 Says:

    new- you can’t jump on an UNDER thrown ball

  215. celly Says:

    Would’ve loved to see Evans go up strong with both hands there….

    But Jameis could’ve thrown a better ball.

    Great catch on 3rd down.

  216. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Come on!!!!!!!

  217. tnew Says:

    brate will jump

  218. cmurda Says:

    Cameron Brate with the hands. Nice throw JW.

  219. MadMax Says:


  220. Bucnut2 Says:

    Brate was open early, JW missed seeing him.

  221. tnew Says:

    Nuts, you see NFL receivers do it for every game!

  222. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW- great job coming back to Brate

  223. tnew Says:

    Nuts, you will never be responded to again.

  224. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Trade or cut ASJ and roll with Brate. Better and smarter.

  225. celly Says:

    Looking forward to a healthy ASJ next year and what type of schemes Koetter plans on using for some 2 TE sets with Brate.

  226. celly Says:


    Get over it. ASJ will be here next year, guaranteed.

  227. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW just cost us 3 points, horrible decision

  228. cmurda Says:

    And that’s where Jameis has got to learn to give up on the play. The O Line ole’d the whole blitz and Winston put his trust in a receiver that is a RB. Can’t throw them up for grabs. That cost us 3 points on a stupid rookie decision.

  229. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    That’s ok….LETS PLAY BALL!!!!

  230. Supersam Says:

    Please put Glennon in.

  231. celly Says:

    Bad decision on Winston, but I can see why he thought that Sims could make the play.

    Tough break, but **it happens.

    Show up defense!!!!!!

  233. Supersam Says:

    Awful decision

  234. celly Says:



  235. Bucnut2 Says:

    So where are all of the JW is savior posters?

  236. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Watch your brothers back!!!

  237. cmurda Says:

    JW is our savior Nut. Get on with your life and deal with it. It’s not even a debate.

  238. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    The Lord didn’t become the savior in one day. Jameis will get there eventually. Lovie has no hope though. He’s beyond salvation. He also has Judas tendencies so we can’t have him betraying our Lord.

  239. celly Says:

    Here’s what I find HILARIOUS….

    Some of you will say, “well, we’re not going to the playoffs. might as well tank and lose out for a better draft position” (which, i feel is the stupidest thing, by the way)…. and then in the next breath, get upset when something bad happens…

    I think I’m just going to make a list of the fools on this board and just scroll past their posts…

  240. cmurda Says:

    Rainey can’t be our return guy. We just can’t afford his hands. He’s muffed too many and just doesn’t do enough.

  241. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Just two very bad teams. It’d be nice to be destroying this awful team. But we can’t.

  242. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Dougie lol. Brutal man,

  243. Captjj Says:

    Martin has a fumbling problem

  244. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Well fuk.

  245. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    That hurts!!!!!

  246. unbelievable Says:

    The only person on this team with sure hands in Cameron brate.

    We have every opportunity to put this game away and instead just keep giving it away.

  247. cmurda Says:

    Our offense is bumbling this game away especially Martin.

  248. celly Says:

    smh. I can’t believe Lovie turned the ball over again….

    He’s garbage. Fire him now.

  249. unbelievable Says:

    Lol @ celly

  250. cmurda Says:

    The draft position thinkers should be happy. I’m not.

  251. Bucnut2 Says:

    Its about to be bears lead

  252. celly Says:


    You said that you can’t jump on an underthrown ball….

    What was that that Julio just did?

  253. Onetrickpony Says:

    Holy crap

  254. MadMax Says:

    If we’re out of the top 5 in drafting (which we will be) then losing for draft position wont really matter. Id rather see the guys play hard so we can figure who we bring back next year….and cut the ones who give up or just flat out suck.

  255. Clearwater Wes Says:

    They do so much every game to give the game away.

  256. Tampa Tony Says:

    Doug is benched forever now

  257. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Our team is not any better than when Schiano was fired. Lovie has not improved this team one iota since getting here. The only crutch people have to defend him is drafting Jameis, which he “earned” through incompetence.

    Supporting Lovie Smith is supporting this team being a loser team forever. It’s as simple as that.

  258. celly Says:

    McCoy praying for an injured opponent?

    He’s trash. Cut him or trade him. What a bust.

  259. Tampa Tony Says:

    Unless this d gets a turnover they don’t stop anyone

  260. ChessMaster Says:

    Its either they suck or they are awesome….come on guys, this is an average team on the rise. Everyone is so schizophrenic.

  261. unbelievable Says:

    If we celebrated like that after a touchdown there would be a flag for excessive celebration. But if it’s against us, no penalty.

  262. Bucnut2 Says:

    Yes! touchdown Bears. REAL fans want us to lose out. JW needs LOTS of help. The higher the draft choices the better!

  263. Buccfan37 Says:

    The cover nobody defense strikes again.

  264. ChessMaster Says:

    Sam Rosen is the worst broadcaster in history.

  265. celly Says:

    I don’t know ONE REAL fan that would prefer a loss vs a win.

    Please don’t ever speak for me.

  266. unbelievable Says:

    “Lovie Smith, who pioneered the cover-no-one scheme, which is distinctly different from cover-0, has gone on to win nothing…”

  267. Bucnut2 Says:

    Evans drop

  268. MadMax Says:

    Evans evans evans….smdh….

  269. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Not an easy catch, but top WRs make that. Evans isn’t that.

  270. Bucnut2 Says:

    under throw to Dye

  271. cmurda Says:

    Winston is putting the ball on the money. These receivers don’t have the ability that we thought they did. Go up and get the damn ball like a real receiver does. These are plays that should be made by the receivers.

  272. unbelievable Says:

    Our WR coach needs to be fired. These guys can’t catch and still don’t know how to attack the ball on the highest point.

  273. ChessMaster Says:

    I don’t think that was catchable. It was just beyond his reach.

  274. Bucnut2 Says:

    Game. set match. Can anyone say 6-9

  275. celly Says:

    Bad drop by Evans, but Winston could’ve placed the ball more to the inside vs the outside.

    Evans will get blame because of all the drops he’s had this season…

    As I’m typing….

    Would’ve liked to see Dye go up and try to make a hands catch vs a body catch.

    Guess the Draft Position guys have something to cheer about.

  276. ChessMaster Says:

    It ain’t over yet.

  277. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Not the kind of drive I was expecting.
    Trying to do to much too soon.

  278. Bucnut2 Says:

    Cmurda- keep dreaming. JW is accurate on 50% of his throws

  279. USMC Says:

    Winston’s arm strength is not 10+ it’s an 8, he’s not quite getting the ball far enough out there so these guys can maintain the separation they are earning on the line.

  280. ElioT Says:

    This is a really sh*tty way to end the season.

    It’s a season of lost opportunities and this team, as talentless and sack-less ass they are has really underachieved.

    Except for a few guys, this team sucks.

    Siege this!

    Go Sucs!


  281. cmurda Says:

    Celly, Sort of like Cameron Brate did? Exactly, the best Qbs in the game throw the ball the same way but receivers go get it if they are #1’s or in Dye’s case, if you belong in the top 3 which he does not.

  282. Bucnut2 Says:

    USMC u are correct. Prepare to be attacked

  283. Bucnut2 Says:

    Think this game is over. One more bears scores and we are done

  284. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Cutler running like Steve Young. What a joke.

  285. cmurda Says:

    I’m disappointed in McCoy. That dude is not earning the contract. He’s not playing like a Top 5 drafted guy.

  286. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    SHUT THE FU CK UP BUCNUTS. u are a LOSER just like LOVIE. you have the loser mentality that this team is trying to get rid of. Got be a fuc in titans fan and swing from MM d!ck

  287. ndog Says:

    3rd and 7 mccoy gets a one on one and cutler runs through his gap for the first. That’s my point Hawaiian! This drive is for the game and McCoy disappears while getting a one on one.

  288. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hire Jombo- you aoudad upset??? is the truth upsetting?

  289. Bucnut2 Says:


  290. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hire Jumbo- how about that Cutler pass???

  291. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Bucs are what you need at a bar at 2am in a woman: loose and easy to penetrate the middle hole.

  292. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    No I just don’t play well with idiots

  293. Rob Says:

    6-8 record followed by four horrific, unforgivable losses to finish a dismal 6-10. I’m not impressed with this team at all. Fire Lovie for ineptness. His coaching and lack of instilling discipline is why we suck

  294. Bucnut2 Says:

    How about thet FG?

  295. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Lovie, has not learned how to defend the slant even after getting torched by every team.

  296. cmurda Says:

    And that’s how a long FG is converted. I haven’t seen that in a little bit.

  297. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hire Jimbo – in that case you should eliminate all self talk. Good luck!

  298. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  299. Bucnut2 Says:

    here comes the SAVIOR

  300. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Three plays that killed them.
    1-Interception that was called back because a penalty could have been 3 Pts Min.
    2-Winston INT could have been 3 Pts.
    3- Martins Fumble

  301. DallasBuc Says:

    Can we stop saying that Mike Clayton Evans will be fine?

  302. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW only looks good when defense is tired

  303. ChessMaster Says:

    Simms tip toes rqminds me of Pittman.

  304. cmurda Says:

    Bumbling offense. Hawley is in La la land too. Jeez.

  305. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Every time you get some hope the blow it up.

  306. Couch Fan Says:

    Only the Bucs…

  307. Bucnut2 Says:

    no good

  308. cmurda Says:

    Add a Fg kicker on to the Christmas list for next year. Barth is incapable of anything beyond 45 and usually 45 too.

  309. Bucnut2 Says:

    game over. JW sucks

  310. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Lovie has lost to the Bears twice now lol. Biggest loser in the NFL. But keep defending him Lovie Loser Crew.

  311. Clearwater Wes Says:

    We will need a kicker again next year.

  312. unbelievable Says:

    Barth has become the most un-clutch kicker there is. Needs to be replaced. Same with half the D. And at least 2 of our WRs.

    Damn that’s a lot of holes to fill.

  313. LJ'sDaddy Says:

    Game over. The Bucs suck.

  314. ChessMaster Says:

    I guess the refs will have a drink and a laugh in Chicago tomorrow night and the fans will pick up the tab.

  315. celly Says:

    I can’t believe Lovie just rolled that snap back to Jameis AND THEN missed the FG.

    He’s garbage. Fire him. Another coach would’ve made the proper snap and made that FG.

  316. DallasBuc Says:

    The struggle is real

  317. tb Says:


  318. ndog Says:

    So it’s loves fault martin fumbles twice and Barth can’t kick. Got it.

  319. unbelievable Says:


  320. stevek Says:

    Lovie can’t even coach on Schiano’s level.

    Sad, sad football team.

    Why does Lovie get an opportunity to return for year 3 in 2016?


    LOVIE’s D needs to DO SOMETHING!

  321. Supersam Says:

    Offseason needs- quarterback, Head Coach, Center, Kicker, entire secondary, right tackle, Defensive ends. We’re close guys were close.

  322. MadMax Says:

    On a good note….kitties undefeated season is about to end.

  323. MadMax Says:

    HA!! Undefeated NO MORE!!!!

  324. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Well look on the bright side. When we lose next week that will b a 4 game losing streak to end the year and very well might get LOSER LOVIE fired

  325. J Says:

    Koetter will be HC elsewhere next year

  326. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Celly has marked himself as a loser. For shame sir. Come to the winning side of eliminating Lovie the Loser.

  327. stevek Says:


    Who answers for piss poor place kicking and a RB that can’t hold the ball? Ultimately coaching becomes accountable.

    Don’t forget the penalties on this team.

    Lovie is no where near the coach Greg Schiano is.

  328. unbelievable Says:

    The run defense today is so damn pathetic, there are no words.

    I’ll see you guys next week so I can scream and complain about how absolutely miserably terrible this team is. Again. Can’t wait!

  329. Bucnut2 Says:

    Game over

  330. ElioT Says:

    Lavonte is a bum.

  331. J Says:



  332. unbelievable Says:

    You guys are delusional if you think Lovie is getting fired.

    Unfortunately, that’s not happening.

  333. DallasBuc Says:

    Yeah, when the team can’t get out of its own way en route to losing against terrible football teams how dare the fans point a finger at incompetent Lovie Smith. Poor little lovable Lovie Dovie having to field criticism for this miserable football team he trots out every week. Life is so unfair.

  334. dougie Says:

    Refs were the issue here.

  335. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Panthers lost so we’re in for a beating next week too.

  336. ATrain Says:

    Lovie Train Rolls on. Nothing is his fault..He is only the leader of this team…

    Maybe it’s the soft a$$ coaching style.

    Maybe it’s No other team wanted this Loser. as he sat in his basement.

    Maybe it’s his POOR DEFENSIVE Calls..

    But we are getting better We are doing somethings better.

    We look Worse than against Atlanta.

  337. Buccfan37 Says:

    Just an unacceptable performance by the Bucs, scrubs and otherwise. If you make the Bears look good, then you are bad.

  338. Soggy Says:

    Beat by the bears at home in our house…we are fighting for that 4th place in our division….can you dig it…

  339. Clearwater Wes Says:

    After todays loss and next week’s loss to the Panthers they would have lost 5 of the last 6 games. That is not what a good team does and its not going in the right direction no matter how much Lovie thinks so.

  340. stevek Says:

    This defense sucks, isn’t our head coach the defensive play caller and known to be a defensive guru?


    Lovie is going to get a third year, when Schiano could not? Dumb azz Bucs Dumb azz Bucs


    How about our $100 million DT, the keystone to Lovie’s Defense….. Damn, we are just getting pushed around.

  341. USMC Says:

    Lovie’s Seat just got HOT again, losing to too many bad teams,

  342. DallasBuc Says:

    Soggy- I think incompetent Lovie Smith has them fighting for 5th place

  343. ChessMaster Says:

    See you guys….I have a date with a woodpile and an axe to work off some steam….see you soon, GOOOO BUUCCS!

  344. stevek Says:

    2 more minutes of Lovie ball.

    Please keep the excuses flowing, Lovie apologists, aka SHEEP

  345. celly Says:


    So, let me get this straight…

    All the bad things that happen are because of Lovie, but all the good things that happen are in spite of Lovie.

    That’s the logic that everyone has on this board, apparently.

  346. Supersam Says:

    We’re worse than the Raheem Morris and Schiano days. Wow. That is bad. Teams have figured out all you have to do is pressure Winston and he’ll throw off his back foot into double coverage every time.

  347. MadMax Says:

    HAHAHAHAhahaha Cam just got mugged!!!!

  348. celly Says:

    Look at all those NFL Head Coaching opportunities that were beating down Schiano’s door when he got fired….

  349. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    It’s been hot. Lovie is the worst coach in nfl. Maybe when indy fires Pagano we can pick him up or just promote koetter

  350. Capt Blighe Says:

    We should stop fooling ourselves this team is not close at all.
    We need so much, Receivers we have 1/2 a receiver on the field.
    VJ is too old. Evans is out standing talent but he is what he is.
    He is not just all the sudden going to start catching the ball.
    So he is a #2 who will always thrill and disappoint at the same time.
    The rest of those guys don’t belong on the field.
    But the needs are endless OL DL the whole secondary Kicker and TE
    You cant get all that in 1-2 drafts.
    The positives JW Brate Linebackers RB thats it.

  351. Couch Fan Says:

    As I said, more of the same crap. If Lovie returns, next year will be more of the same. I dont know how anyone can continue to defend this coach who simply can not get his team prepared enough to compete with other bad teams.

    Good news is we get a better draft spot and after next weeks loss, which is highly likely to Carolina’s back up’s, maybe the Glazers will start paying attention to how poorly coached this team is.

  352. Buc1987 Says:

    Look how much I don’t even bother with the likes of SuperClown and Buttnut0 anymore.

    One week they say they accept the kid and are happy with him. The next week they go back on the attack.

    You 2 deserved to be ignored. Your comments speak for themselves.

  353. NJBucsFan Says:

    Lovie is overrated will always be the Achilles heel of this franchise.

    That is all

  354. tb Says:

    I’m back on broad get rid of lovie

  355. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    We need a billboard

  356. stevek Says:

    Here we go, can our defensive head coach call the right plays to stop his former team and QB.

    Lovie Smith is not on the same coaching level as Rutgers Schiano.

    New Jersey D1 Football programs have better coaching.

    We fired Schiano for this brand of football?



    5-9 Bears, about to drop the Bucs.

    Way to go, Lovie!

    Can’t wait to read the media and hear the media say that it isn’t Lovie’s fault.

    I respect Joe’s assessment that 6 wins allows Lovie to return in 2016, but what about closing the year our on a 4 game losing streak?

    Is losing ok?

    This team is trash. I am so stoked I got a Buccaneer trash can for christmas, as our team is trash. It symbolizes so much.

  357. Buc1987 Says:

    Couch you’re right the back ups for Carolina are capable of beating us, but the announcers just said Carolina needs to win next week for home field.

  358. Buccfan37 Says:

    Somehow a 6-9 record sounds about right. Mediocrity reigns supreme. Flaky pushovers.

  359. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Terrible performance. Team has regressed.

  360. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Too little too late.

  361. orlbucfan Says:

    Oh well, injuries and young players lost this game today. Stinkcats also lost to the Dixie Chicks. I was hoping for 8-8. It took Dungy, his assistants and his players several years to get to the point where they could beat the refs as well as the opposite team. At least, all the yapping about Koetter leaving will shuttup on here. I’m very optimistic about next season. This offense showed its youth today. It will be more mature when it hits the field in 2016. The emphasis will be on the defense in the off-season where it should be. Anywho, go Bucs!!
