    Martineers lets keep him going all game..

  2. Buccfan37 Says:

    Go Martin go!

  3. lightningbuc Says:

    Martin’s effective, bout time for Lovie to take him out for a quarter or two.

  4. aj Says:

    Dot looking good so far.

  5. Soggy Says:

    but not every play.. gezz

  6. cmurda Says:

    I like coming out running it but 7 plays in a row and setting us up for the long 3rd down was just suspect. Terrible playcalling after the first 4 runs. WTF are you doing Koetter?

  7. Tampa Tony Says:

    Horribly predictable play calling

  8. Tampa Tony Says:

    Waste of a drive

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    This is why I always want the Bucs to KO first.

  10. cmurda Says:

    Russel Shepard, dude wtf are you doing buddy. Why would you stop in front of the guy fair catching it instead of go to goal line and turn around. He would have caught that punt of the bounce at the 1. Brains, guys. Use them.

  11. MadMax Says:

    J. Jones wide open….smh.

  12. Horror Says:

    Oh god

  13. Tampa Tony Says:

    Jones wide open all day

  14. cmurda Says:

    Fake the blitz don’t bring it and they easily get the 1st. reasons why our defense sucks. A decent defense gets off the field on 3rd and 7.

  15. Tampa Tony Says:

    Got a bad feeling about today

  16. Tampa Tony Says:

    Offense is gonna need to take over

  17. cmurda Says:

    Come on make a play. The pick as there to be made Moore.

  18. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Wait, Kwon is PLAYING?

  19. ATrain Says:

    Bucs have been playing for Lovies job not the playoffs.

    With a few wins Lovie stays..

  20. ATrain Says:

    Looking at the stadium the Bucs should give tix away

  21. cmurda Says:

    Kwon is appealing the suspension, so for now, yes, he’s playing.

  22. ManzielMadness Says:

    I’m why is it that on every third and long our corners are lining up at the first down marker? Are we trying to give it away?

  23. MadMax Says:

    yep, I guess the appeal is holding.

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    So quiet out there for our defense… as usual anyways.

  25. MadMax Says:

    Martin has that possessed look in his face!

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    Evans the drop MASTER!

  27. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Mike Evans. It’s just gotten Clayton-like. We have to deal with it. Gona have to draft a receiver.

  28. DallasBuc Says:

    Mike Clayton Evans

  29. ATrain Says:

    Throw to Humphries, or Brate they catch ball

  30. cmurda Says:

    Penalty. No surprise here. the drive killing penalties begin. Way to go guys. Way to clean it up coaching staff and players.

  31. Bucsalltheway Says:

    Charles sims has the best hands on the team hands down

  32. Buccfan37 Says:

    That ball to Evans was a good D play.

  33. Buc1987 Says:


  34. cmurda Says:

    2 illegal formations in a row. Now, is that coaching?

  35. MadMax Says:

    And here we go after the record for penalties!!!! Come ON!!!!!

  36. ATrain Says:

    Damn Really. BS

    Pro team…

  37. Soggy Says:

    now the flags start, I fell at home now

  38. Buccfan37 Says:

    And the penalty march starts.

  39. WalkdaPlank Says:

    In all fairness, Alford got a hand on the ball as Evans was bringing it down, not like an outright drop. These dumb penalties allies are killing us though.

  40. Buc1987 Says:

    Evans just caught a BULLET!

  41. ATrain Says:

    Evan will catch it if Winston buries it in his chest

  42. MadMax Says:


  43. MadMax Says:

    Come on Martin, run behind Ali!

  44. Soggy Says:

    nothing but TD will do

  45. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Dotson blocking well so far.

  46. MadMax Says:


  47. Buc1987 Says:


  48. Buccfan37 Says:

    Yeah baby, that’s relevant!

  49. cmurda Says:

    Pretty drive Winston and Martin and hey, M.E. even had a catch and they overcame 2 penalties.

  50. Soggy Says:


  51. WalkdaPlank Says:


  52. King C Says:

    Bucs can really run on these guys
    OL is a beast

  53. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Who says Winston can’t run????!!!!!!!

  54. ATrain Says:

    I was against Winston…
    But this Kid has Sold me..

  55. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Where is Bucnut2 to point out all of Winston’s mistakes??

  56. aj Says:

    Kind of happy Dotson has a chance to get his job back with Gosder out.

  57. Miguel Grande Says:

    I’d like to see them complete a drive without a penalty for once

  58. Buc1987 Says:

    ATrain…it was only a matter of time.

  59. ATrain Says:

    Atlanta fans calling the game today

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    Miguel…we might be waiting a long time for that.

  61. ATrain Says:

    87 I knew you would be the first to call me out.
    But its all good…I have to say Winston looks good and I like his Winning attitude..

  62. Buc1987 Says:

    I just can’t wait for year 2 or 3 Jameis Winston. I need a time machine.

  63. Couch Fan Says:

    Not seeing any difference in this defense without GMC…If anything they seem to be getting more pressure so far.

  64. Miguel Grande Says:

    JW’s biggest mistake was claiming the #3 jersey.

    That should be for kickers

  65. cmurda Says:

    If Sterling Moore who is giving Julio 15 yards is our best corner than we have zero chance. I’m not impressed with our D Line or secondary.

  66. Buc1987 Says:

    Miguel I was questioning that number the other day. I was thinking why #3. Why not 4 like Favre, because that’s how he plays.

  67. cmurda Says:

    More pressure Couch? You’re crazy. mcCoy is sorely missed and I have seen zero pressure.

  68. Buc1987 Says:

    They’re just running over us now.

  69. Horror Says:

    i wish we had a defense.

  70. Buc1987 Says:

    PENALTIES! sigh

  71. cmurda Says:

    We are seeing exactly how much McCoy is missed after many of you bash him. Spence with a penalty and he also misses a tackle.

  72. Soggy Says:


  73. cmurda Says:

    Right on cue, Spence knocks down a pass. I made it happen.

  74. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Come on Spence, know you can’t do that!

  75. Buc1987 Says:


  76. Buc1987 Says:


  77. cmurda Says:

    Zero pressure and Moore continues to get roasted.

  78. DallasBuc Says:

    Incompetent Lovie Smith’s defense getting exposed again by Julio.

  79. Couch Fan Says:

    LMAO @ Sorely missed. You’re funny. Cuz with McCoy we generated zero pressure as you say.

  80. WalkdaPlank Says:

    What a hit by Moore! Surprised it wasn’t flagged.

  81. cmurda Says:

    There we go. We didn’t break.

  82. Couch Fan Says:

    Look at that a sack. Zero pressure huh? LoL

  83. DallasBuc Says:

    That was terrific red zone pass coverage

  84. cmurda Says:

    Yes, there has been zero pressure and then we got a sack. You’re nuts if you think our line is better without McCoy. That’s just idiotic.

  85. lurker Says:

    welcome back, miguel. i guess you have given up on chip the dip and the eagles. are you cheering for the bucs?

  86. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Could this be our day. So far it seems we have a little more want to and the Falcons appear to have shaky confidence. Can’t let them get rolling though or that confidence will return.

  87. Horror Says:

    Surprise mother clucker!!!!!

  88. Soggy Says:

    That’s Gooder..

  89. cmurda Says:

    Let’s get another TD boys.

  90. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Very weak crowd for what amounts the closest thing the team has had to a playoff game in 5 years. Still quite the apathetic fan base.

  91. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Great play by Gholston, good stop by the D.

  92. cmurda Says:

    Wow, that was a straight tackle by the young man on the return. Not a good first impression.

  93. Tampa Tony Says:

    Flags are sickening

  94. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Special teams penalties are especially egregious. It’s not just the penalty yardage it’s the gain that was negated and the horrible field position. Just dang brain dead. Limits our offensive options.

  95. Miguel Grande Says:

    Lurker, I tried being an Iggles fan, it just didn’t work for me

  96. Tampa Tony Says:

    I don’t even get excited for plays cus u never know when a flag is coming

  97. ATrain Says:

    Where is the other penalty?

  98. Buc1987 Says:

    Tony…yup.. always wait for about 4- 5 seconds

  99. WalkdaPlank Says:

    A catch by Evans.

  100. Soggy Says:

    the flags are flying but they are yellow

  101. mixxx31 Says:

    Wasnt that offsideslast week?

  102. cmurda Says:

    The penalties, specifically by the offense are inexcusable and week after week, all of us keep saying it must stop but it doesn’t. It frigging ends drives.

  103. lurker Says:

    how undisciplined is this team…smh

  104. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Man imagine how good #3 could be if he didn’t have to beat the Bucs and the other team. How many penalities do we expect this kid to overcome

  105. Buc1987 Says:

    First down Tampa…


  106. Soggy Says:

    like that nice throw and catch

  107. cmurda Says:

    Beautiful pass. Wow, that was gorgeous and what effort by V jax.

  108. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:


  109. lurker Says:

    what a throw. glad winston is a big mutha

  110. ATrain Says:

    Jackson is sucking wind

  111. cmurda Says:

    I’m a little worried with our O Line. they have held up but there’s a good amount of pressure yet again coming at JW.

  112. WalkdaPlank Says:

    VJax, one of the best FA transactions in Bucs history.

  113. lurker Says:

    jameis christ as

    big mutha trucker

  114. ATrain Says:

    3rd and 13 and we run

  115. cmurda Says:

    Wow, why the give up play with a run on 3rd and long???

  116. lurker Says:

    with that d, jameis shoulda changed the play

  117. WalkdaPlank Says:

    This heavy use of Martin is making me nervous.

  118. Buc1987 Says:

    Time for our D to get a turnover.

  119. DallasBuc Says:

    Let’s get a stop D!

  120. DallasBuc Says:

    …and nevermind

  121. lurker Says:

    and our defense gives up 3rd and long…smh

  122. cmurda Says:

    The most obvious penalty just cam on that 3rd down for the Falgoons. But, of course it was not called meanwhile our D Lineman was tackled in the end zone.

  123. Tampa Tony Says:

    This d needs about 9 new starters

    How do u let jones constantly run free???

  124. MadMax Says:

    Man, still having Kwon is HUGE for us!

  125. mixxx31 Says:


  126. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Julio stays wide open.

  127. Clearwater Wes Says:

    If they pay a lot of cover two there going to get picked apart.
    The receivers just have to run to the big green open spot.

  128. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    KWOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!! In my best Captian Kirk voice!

  129. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    How do u let jones constantly run free???

    Let me attempt an answer. He is the leading receiver in the NFL and he averages

    more than 110 yards a game! He apparently runs free on a lot of teams.

  130. DallasBuc Says:

    Incompetent Lovie Smith has no answer for talented receivers which, incidentally every other NFL team has.

  131. mixxx31 Says:

    Nice stop

  132. Miguel Grande Says:

    2nd and 23. Freeman tackled 1 yd short of the 1st down. 3rd and 11

  133. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Yeah Dallas great observation because those more than 1200 yards so far this season and an average of over 110 yards per game are all Lovie’s fault.

    Are all the other DC’s in the league INCOMPETENT. You guys are embarrassing yourself. Do you guys even know who the eff are the great players in this league.

    Does anybody on this board have ANY respect for our opponents or do they all suckk and we just suckk more?

  134. Miguel Grande Says:

    Common core math graduates

  135. Tampa Tony Says:

    Let me guess loser Lovie is ok with this lead and will not try to score

  136. Tampa Tony Says:

    Great play then bad play by Evans!!!!!

  137. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Goddamn we missed on ODB. Him and Jameis would be special. Evans just not even close to the same level.

  138. cmurda Says:

    That was a stupid pass by JW. He fired it to M.E. when M.E was only a few yards in front. Very bad pass.

  139. lurker Says:

    they rushed that snap and throw…

  140. DallasBuc Says:

    StPete- so we should have no expectation that incompetent Lovie Smith be able to defend talented receivers? Thanks for lowering the standards so incompetent Lovie Smith doesn’t have to take responsibility. Well done

  141. Tampa Tony Says:

    No one on jones????????

    Loser Lovie’s d is awful

  142. cmurda Says:

    There is this guy named Julio Jones. Double him, triple him but for the freaking love of God do not be 15 yards off of him and allow constant receptions underneath.

  143. Clearwater Wes Says:

    That was Winston’s fault he needs to spread the ball around a little better.
    He knows Evans has drop issues.

  144. Soggy Says:

    yikes don’t self implode

  145. cmurda Says:

    You guys can talk abou tthe secondary all you want, but our biggest issue is this non-existent D Line.

  146. ATrain Says:

    Lovie is the Reason for the Season of losing..

    He demands nothing

  147. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Can’t agree Cmurda….NFL receivers are supposed to catch EVERY pass that hits them in the hands…fastballs…curve balls….knuckle balls…if they get their hands on it that clearly it’s on the receiver unless the DB gets a hand in to interrupt.

    We need to worry that our #1 receiver is becoming a freaking choke artist!!!

  148. lurker Says:

    so now a fg to take the lead by the falcons…and they get the ball to start the 2nd half.

  149. DallasBuc Says:

    Mike Clayton Evans strikes again!!

  150. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Dammit Evans.

  151. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    No Dallas that is not the expectation. But we know Julio is good for 100 a game…let’s see if we can hold him beneath his averge.

    They pay the other guys too Dallas…and Julio is the top receiver in the league.
    Are you suggesting that every other team that gave up all those yards have simply lowered their standards? Your Lovie hate is infecting the wisdom of your posts.

  152. lurker Says:

    can’t wait for lovie’s halftime changes…

    oh wait, he doesn’t make changes.

  153. Buccfan37 Says:

    That pick was the boneheaded play of the 1st half.

  154. Soggy Says:


  155. lurker Says:


    what happened.

  156. Tiger team Says:

    Evans needs to be benched.

  157. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Playing from behind in the second.

  158. cmurda Says:

    Fair point St pete. And there we go. There’s our Bucs being outdueled by a kicker. What has caused this issue. What else. Penalties. This is crap football. I expect better. This Falcons defense is not that scary. We need to run Martin often in the 2nd half and actually forcing a couple punts would be a welcome change.

  159. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    3 points MIKE EVANS!!! Like virtually everybody here I thought #3 would have a tough season this year because of our OL. That’s not been the problem.

    Who would have thought his top TE couldn’t get on the field for most of the year and that his #! WR turned into Michael Clayton.

    I’m really, really feeling sorry for #3…he’s getting scrwd…it might be time to let ME look at the game from the sideline for awhile. Seriously he needs a sports psychologist and a hypnotist. He’s choking like a big dog on an oversized bone out there.

  160. Buc1987 Says:

    More pressure on Ryan.

  161. ndog Says:

    Our d looks better without McCoy and Evans still sucks. You ask me we would be better off spending their money elsewhere. Anyone defending Evans now just needs to pick a new sport to watch.

  162. Tiger team Says:

    We’ll be drafting defense

  163. Tampa Tony Says:

    Aren’t good defensive coordinators supposed to try to stop the other teams best weapon?

    This sucks

  164. unbelievable Says:

    Would it be so much to ask for even 1 guy to try to do SOMETHING to block a FG kick? Anyone?

    With the exception of Conte 1 time, we don’t even try to block a kick. We just give them 3 points. Every. Single. Time.


  165. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    What’s really sad is that the stat will go against #3. If we lose people will jump on the QB. I thought he had a mediocre game last week…not bad but not his best.

    He looks sharp and in command today. He rarely puts two bad halfs together and so there is my only hope. #3 remains hot and we get a break with a turnover or two.

    Just stop throwing the ball to ME…let him serve as a decoy.

  166. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Sammy Watkins looking great too now. Evans falling behind those guys from last year with not just drops but costly drops.

  167. Buccfan37 Says:

    Where did ASJ disappear to?

  168. your all idiots Says:

    love how all of you after the eagles game was ready to call this a 10-6 team lol


    they will be lucky to win another game

    mike clayton evans and penalties killing this team

  169. ndog Says:

    If those 2 top 10 picks played like it we would be in the playoffs this year! With them doing what they do we are what we are watching right now, average just like them.

  170. unbelievable Says:

    That’s the problem, his drops are coming at the most crucial times. Not a 4 yard pass on 1st down, or once we have a 20 point lead, but on critical touchdown and 3rd down plays. Dammit Mike! Get it together!

  171. Espo Says:

    How can anyone put that on Lovie’s D? Holding an NFL team to 6 at the half and then gifted a fg by the O. It’s likeyou’re watching a different game.

  172. mixxx31 Says:

    Ok Bucs fans, I put forth a motion that hence forth and forever more dallasbuc fan be referred to as DoucheBag fan. It is the same number of letters and he can keep the “d” and “b”.

  173. DallasBuc Says:

    StPete- I don’t hate LovieDovie. I just think he is incompetent.
    Perhaps your desire to defend his incompetence is infecting the wisdom of your posts.
    Lovie Smith is incompetent until he proves otherwise.
    Mike Clayton Evans until he proves otherwise.

  174. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Aren’t good defensive coordinators supposed to try to stop the other teams best weapon?

    Isn’t the operative word TRY. What about all the other DC’s Jones has torched.
    Should they all be fired.

    Did JJ put up 135 against the Giants mean they should fire their DC
    How about the 163 against Dallas..fire the DC?
    137 against SF…160 against Indy…fire all those DC’s.

    Let’s hire Minnesota DC they held JJ to just 56! Or Houston which held him to a season low 38 and the ONLY team to hold him below a 10 yard average…just 9.5 in that game.

  175. dreambig Says:

    This is going to be a long day that could end very badly. Falcons are getting 10+ yards a play. If that continutes, we will lose. We are not good enough (coaches or players) to have to score every time we get the ball.

  176. cmurda Says:

    Another extremely obvious hold against the Falcons uncalled.

  177. cmurda Says:

    Halftime adjustments by lovie. Are you guys ready.

  178. Tampa Tony Says:

    Only hope this garbage d has is to hold ATL to field goals

  179. Buccfan37 Says:

    Ryan is warmed up, he sees easy money downfield.

  180. cmurda Says:

    3rd and long. Automatic first down for the opposition. The sign of a bad defense and we are a bad defense.

  181. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Nut shot

  182. Tampa Tony Says:

    Unless they get a turnover this d isn’t stopping anyone!!! These are the words of a Bucs coach

  183. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Pass D is hot garbage

  184. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    They suck

  185. cmurda Says:

    When I see some nobody D Lineman covering the tight end, that’s where I draw the line. This defense is hopeless.

  186. cmurda Says:

    3rd down. Its nail biting time.

  187. unbelievable Says:

    Jenkins in over Banks?!?

    Calling this game over now boys. Sorry

  188. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Good coverage by Sterling Moore.

  189. DallasBuc Says:

    Great pass breakup by Moore because he was beat

  190. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Jameis and the offense have to so something. Cant lose another gsme because the offense cant score

  191. unbelievable Says:

    That play by Moore though!

  192. cmurda Says:

    Our defense isn’t breaking but they can never get off the field for 3rd and long. these are those lacking halftime adjustments that drive me crazy. For Christ sake bring a blitz and at least don’t allow Ryan to write a book before he finds the open receiver.

  193. ATrain Says:

    Lovie doesn’t make adjustments.. sticks to game plan period..

    Defense is out of shape.

    Lovie has his job so playing soft…

    No heart….Lovie is not a leader ..Sorry Lovie Lovers. Truth hurts

  194. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Have to score a TD this next drive.

  195. Buccfan37 Says:

    Keep the ball away from Atlanta’s offense.

  196. ATrain Says:

    Bench Evans…


  197. cmurda Says:

    Mike Evans is killing this team. What a sophomore slump.

  198. WalkdaPlank Says:

    WTF EVANS?!?!

  199. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Give Jackson the ball once in a while.

  200. lurker Says:

    unfriggen believable…evan jackson is getting sloppy.

  201. lurker Says:


  202. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    He pushes off every single time. Lucky there are not more of those.

  203. tnew Says:

    I would target Vjax 10+ times this half

  204. lurker Says:

    man, my mind and hands are not working together…lol

  205. lurker Says:

    need a td!

  206. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Vjax has transferred all his previous dropping abilities to Evans, because he is catching deep passes now.

  207. Clearwater Wes Says:

    If evans isn’t dropping passes, or crying to the ref’s for a flag he’s committing pass interference.

  208. MadMax Says:

    Man, Simms is turning out to be a great draft pick!

  209. lurker Says:

    uh-oh…can we punch it in from the 1?

  210. MadMax Says:


  211. Clearwater Wes Says:

    That’s what we needed a TD.
    Now the D needs a 3 and out or a turn over.

  212. lurker Says:

    guess so! td, tampabay!

  213. cmurda Says:

    Great answer by JW and this offense. That’s what Im talking about.

  214. ATrain Says:




  215. cmurda Says:

    That 2 point conversion was ugly but we got the lead.

  216. Bucsalltheway Says:

    Sims and Martin are the dark horses to our success if they get stopped we’re done…the cannons sound weak today!!!!

  217. WalkdaPlank Says:


  218. mixxx31 Says:

    We should get 12 points for that . Sims run was a TD also!!

  219. Clearwater Wes Says:

    That better not come back and haunt us.
    Come on take the points it’s going to be a close one.

  220. cmurda Says:

    I thought so too Mixxx. I know it’s moot because Dougie got it in but if the replay showed a TD, the Bucs should have challenged. You can’t take the chance of a mistake at the 1.

  221. cmurda Says:

    Come on defense. We need somebody to make a play. Matt Ryan is going to give somebody a chance, let’s make that play on D.

  222. mixxx31 Says:

    Nice tackle rook

  223. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Now if the D can force a punt

  224. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Why is he always open?

  225. mixxx31 Says:

    Stand tall D!!!

  226. cmurda Says:

    blitz now on 3rd.

  227. cmurda Says:

    Thank you. I’ve been asking for it. That’s not intentional grounding?

  228. WalkdaPlank Says:

    For Julio to be that wide open 20 yards down the field is a travesty, I don’t care how good he is, that’s poor coverage. Lucky he didn’t catch that.

  229. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    No heart….Lovie is not a leader ..Sorry Lovie Lovers. Truth hurts

    Nothing to be sorry about. People who wish to judge Lovie rationally and remain calm are not hurt by an anonymous bloggers versus the opinion of the experts in the NFL.

    Whoa no adjustment…Lovie blitzes.

  230. MadMax Says:

    Theres our 2 points 😀

  231. MadMax Says:

    ah crap!

  232. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    There it is

  233. cmurda Says:

    He was at the 1. Good call there but nice blitz. Look at that. Need to mix in more blitzes.

  234. lurker Says:

    got the call correct…

  235. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Oh stop announcers….the Lovie haters do not want to hear that crap about our DB’s or defense playing well!!!

  236. cmurda Says:

    Here we go boys. Great field position. Nice work defense. Finish this drive JW.

  237. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    What an odd season. This team isn’t very good and would get destroyed in the playoffs, but the NFL sucks so much this year there’s a good chance to make it.

  238. MadMax Says:

    Need a TD drive Bucs!

  239. tnew Says:


  240. MadMax Says:

    I’ll have to say, our D is doing pretty good so far, especially putting pressure on Ryan. Im impressed!

  241. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    They’re praising our OL. Isn’t it a coincidence that Marplet has returned!

    I think this kid has an all pro future. Great to see the Chicks lose their composure instead of us.

  242. cmurda Says:

    Lets go boys. finish this TD.

  243. cmurda Says:

    No, Dirk play action there. Dont have JW in shotgun.

  244. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Winston needs to get the ball down.

  245. tnew Says:

    asj has to catch that ball

  246. cmurda Says:

    Good catch ASJ. And we missed you???

  247. ATrain Says:

    Brate would have caught that ball

  248. WalkdaPlank Says:

    ASJ with a drop. So glad to have him back.

  249. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Tight game lets go to the rusty guy. WTF

  250. MadMax Says:

    Ive noticed that when Winston rolls right, theres no DB’s in the end zone on the left side of the play and nobody over there is running to the end zone looking for a pass. @ times now they wouldve been wide open.

  251. cmurda Says:

    That’s weak. 2nd down from the 4 was a bad playcall and then ASJ blows an easy TD in which JW put touch and didn’t even fire it. The drops on this team are inexcusable. Get Brate out there if ASJ can’t come through.

  252. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    ASJ is such a massive disappointment.

  253. DallasBuc Says:

    ASJ is garbage. Evans is worse. Dunkaneers?…maybe these bozos should go play basketball because they aren’t suited for this sport.

  254. lurker Says:

    rolling, rolling, rolling

    the bandwagon’s getting swollen
    keep them buccaneers going, jameis christ

    through rain, an’ wind, an’ weather
    keep on throwin the leather
    with other buccaneer fans by my side

  255. MadMax Says:

    I want Brate too, He’s proven!

  256. Ufcguy32 Says:

    Jesus. This guy is fking worthless

  257. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    It wasn’t a perfect pass but he could have had it

  258. ATrain Says:

    Lovie falls in love with certain players ..

  259. Hdv814 Says:

    ASJ is a bummmmmm

  260. mixxx31 Says:

    We got two calls in a row. Can you believe it!!

  261. DallasBuc Says:

    How do you not come away with 6 points. Pathetic

  262. Luther Says:

    OK…here’s the problem with Winston. He needs to learn how to run routes because clearly, he needs to catch the balls that he throws.

  263. vince picolo Says:

    That was a perfect pass. Eye high and in front. What more could he want?

  264. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:


  265. tnew Says:

    I just watched the “high” jameis throw to VJAX. Tough play but NFL WR’s make that catch every Sunday.

  266. tnew Says:

    A BATTED BALL!!!!!

  267. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    but the NFL sucks so much this year

    Not really! It’s like this most years. It’s called parity although some prefer to call it mediocrity.

    Occasionally there’s a season where a team wins ten and doesn’t make the playoffs…more often there are seasons where 8-8 teams make it.

    It is what it is..that’s why all those beotching about playoff talk do not realize what they are talking about.

  268. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    The defense is holding..and how:)!!!

  269. cmurda Says:

    Really Doug, really??

  270. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:


  271. DallasBuc Says:

    Uh oh. Not good Dougie

  272. 911bucs Says:

    It’s a bucs life

  273. cmurda Says:

    The Bucs just beat themselves time after time. Blessed with the opportunity to take the life out of the the opposition, this team continues to effing self-destruct.

  274. lurker Says:

    and the wagon gets a flat…

  275. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Once again we attempt to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!!!

    #3 is on his A game today. He’s throwing it perfectly where only our receivers can catch it and then our workhorse RB fumbles to kill all momentum and give Atlanta new life. Dang it’s hard to be Buc fan sometimes.

    Hard to get too down on Doug since he doesn’t cough it up that much.

  276. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Last game we were lucky to get the 4 turnovers and win , looks like today might be there day everything seams to be going that way.

  277. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Nah St Pete the NFL really sucks this year. Absolute balls. Bucs would lose by 4TDs if they made the playoffs. That’s not parity at all. Only 4-5 great teams and 2 or 3 garbage teams and a bunch of meh in between.

  278. DI Says:

    “Bite the ball Doug. Bite the ball”

    – Greg Schano

  279. Tiger team Says:

    Muscle Hamster dropped the pelletp

  280. Tampa Tony Says:

    Lovie will now bench martin

  281. cmurda Says:

    Come on guys. You cant let slow-footed Matt Ryan do that. Make the damn play.

  282. tnew Says:

    We sure are getting a lot of penetration up the middle of our defense without GMC…. if this was baseball his WOR number might not look too good.

  283. cmurda Says:

    This defense is giving it up.

  284. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Why not

  285. cmurda Says:

    This fumble by Martin will be the play that disgusts everyone especially when it was a soft hit that caused the fumble. This defense can never make the stop when needed. they are getting humiliated.

  286. Clearwater Wes Says:

    When they score it will be 19-16 and we will need a touchdown to win because of that extra point.

  287. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Lovie is dog poo

    Again you people who hate Lovie post crap where you actually refute your own point1

    Only 4-5 great teams and 2 or 3 garbage teams and a bunch of meh in between.

    And so you’ve listed 6-8 teams who are either great…I disagree…I would say they are only good..and they are all beatbable.. or suck.

    That leaves 24-26 teams that are meh by your own description. Mediocrity..parity..or meh I stand by my point.

    Carolina won our division last year with a LOSING record.

    Here’s what’s going on…you Lovie haters are afraid he’s going to win and embarrass your opinions.

    It’s getting tired and tedious. You are effectively rooting against the Bucs although you claim you’re not simply because you’d rather be rigth about Lovie than see him win a Super Bowl for the Bucs!

  288. lurker Says:


  289. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:


  290. cmurda Says:

    Defense is an embarrassment. Doug Martin with another inopportune fumble and this team does what it does best. Self-destruct and grasp defeat out of the jaws of victory. How about we actually score and the defense can make a frigging play.

  291. DallasBuc Says:

    Incompetent Lovie Smith’s defense gave up the booty with zero resistance. True to form

  292. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Defense got caught flat footed on the two-minute offense. We knew this would be Bucs offense vs. ATL offense, not Bucs defense vs. ATL offense.

    ASJ’s drop could cost us the game.

  293. Bangkok Buc Says:


  294. Clearwater Wes Says:

    If they lose this one that’s it, the playoff hopes are 100% gone.
    Seattle is killing Minnesota so they will be 2 game behind with 4 left.
    Game Over.

  295. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    The defense it NOT getting humiliated. They have given up 12 points until the fourth quarter. They made a critical stop to set up a hot #3 who again had the Bucs moving. Doug fumbles…and the D has to come right back on the field with horrible field position.

    You guys are getting so negative you can’t realize situations anymore. The Falcons have a freaking winning record and we do not. The teams are evenly matched IMHO. Our QB is outplaying theirs…our D had been outplaying their D.

    I’m afraid our D is now gassed. It’s not just that we don’t have GMC there are at least four other players who were supposed to start or see lots of time who didn’t suit up. They’re doing great considering what they’re fighting through.

    I am not embarrassed to be a Bucs fan today. I was freaking humiliated on opening day. This game like last week is simply frustrating. We are too thin to lose this many players on D especially the 2nd leading sack artist in the NFL at least at DT!!!

  296. yoooo Says:

    Hey guys u got a rooki QB sdfu

  297. ndog Says:

    You idiots are already blaming the d. How about a drop by me13 that caused a pick, a drop in the end zone by ASJ that costs us 4 points, and a fumble by Martin that resulted in a td. Oh yeah that’s all the defense fault. They are all 1st or 2nd round picks how is that any coaches fault?

  298. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Thanks Ndog…I thought I was watching a different game. LMAO

    At least you have reassured me I have the right station on.

  299. lightningbuc Says:

    Lovie’s a moron! Yes, Martin fumbled, but get over it!

    LOVIE is still an assclown!

  300. Clearwater Wes Says:

    Jamis, doesn’t roll out very good.

  301. cmurda Says:

    Our Bucs look done. The energy has vanished and the vanilla playcalling is creating nothing. Martin should have been out there. Lovie is stupid to bench his best weapon. The guy fumbled. Get over it and move on.

  302. tnew Says:

    don’t agree with pulling Martin, and moving away from the run this quick…Simms usually does better on the screen

  303. Miguel Grande Says:

    Fugly, 3&out

  304. cmurda Says:

    Wow Lightning. Jinx.

  305. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Mariota 87 yard rushing TD. Amazing speed. Looks like we couldn’t go wrong with Jameis Christ or Mariota.

  306. Alstott40 Says:

    All we need is an 87 yard td run… oh wait wrong rookie qb.

  307. Couch Fan Says:

    Not sure what game you’re watching but this D is playing better without GMC. At least today anyways.

  308. cmurda Says:

    This team takes on the persona of it’s coach. Weak-minded. No heart.

  309. Clearwater Wes Says:

    3 and out and they get great field position without a turn over it’s over.

  310. Tampa Tony Says:

    Getting out coached yet again

  311. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Lovie is dog poo

    Why don’t you go troll another board you freaking traitor. If you’d take MM over JW at this point you even dumber than your moniker make sound.

    And so one simple question for all the Lovie haters.

    Why is it that only you blog experts here believe this? Why does the rest of the league…you know the people who actually have jobs in the league disagree with you?

    Do you honestly think rational people are going to respect opinions snatched out of some bloggers backside over people who actually work in the game?

    Really? Start linking me to somebody besides the group of losers here who feel this way…you know like even pundits much less people who work in the league.

  312. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Another good stop!

  313. cmurda Says:

    The blitz has been our way of adjusting and I’ll give Lovie that. This is what we’ve needed. make the Qb have to throw quick.

  314. lurker Says:

    funny how people are watching the same offense and defense but seeing different things.

  315. mixxx31 Says:

    Way to stand tall D

  316. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Agree Cmurda it is a clear adjustment made at halftime.

    And for all the GMC haters I’ve been trying to watch our rush. We had no push up the middle in the first half…GMC does provide this even if he doesn’t get the sack. This freed the Falcon tackles to just run our DE’s wide since Matty Ice could step up in the pocket and take his time and pick us apart.

    Lovie obviously saw that as well and even put in some trick blitzes. I liked the crisscross of LVD and Kwon…haven’t seen that much.

  317. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Calm down StPete, Jameis Christ is the savior. Mariota will be good too. Lovie never will but that’s another discussion. But both QBs will be good is all I’m saying. Mariota has 400 total yards and 4 TDs. Pretty good no?

  318. DallasBuc Says:

    Benching Martin is stupid.

  319. cmurda Says:

    Lovie is going to rue having Martin on the sidelines. Sims does not hit the hole well at all.

  320. WalkdaPlank Says:

    It’s an idiotic move to bench Martin.

  321. Miguel Grande Says:

    Sims, WTF!!!!!!

  322. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Lovie sucks the big dog..

  323. cmurda Says:

    Huge break there. Bad decision by JW though. New life. Make the most of it boys.

  324. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Could this be our day? Finally a call that went ME’s way.

  325. tnew Says:

    Yeah!! Dougie!

  326. lurker Says:

    wow…a call.

    hands around the waist.

    dougie fresh is back.

  327. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    Come on man

  328. lurker Says:

    and a call against…

  329. cmurda Says:

    Motherfrigging penalty. Eff this crap. Week after week. This team, the self-destructors of the NFL. I’m sick of them. The refs don’t miss it against us. They missed a ton of holds on ATL.

  330. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Lovie sucks the big dog..

    Curse of Gruden way to demonstate you’re incredible intellect. Did you spend much time creating that well thought out post.

    What’s next…Atlanta wins and you can go neener neener…head to the freaking kindergarten where your arguments might have some validity.

  331. lurker Says:

    1 step forward and 10 yards back!

  332. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Out of FG range now, great.

  333. cmurda Says:

    Cannot take a sack JW. YOU CANNOT TAKE A SACK.

  334. tnew Says:


  335. cmurda Says:

    Holy freaking crap Winston. Run of the year.

  336. lurker Says:

    wtf are the announcers seeing? lmao

  337. WalkdaPlank Says:


  338. Miguel Grande Says:

    What the hell!!!

  339. ATrain Says:

    Commentators and Refs are both Atlanta fans

  340. mixxx31 Says:


  341. Luther Says:

    Any more questions about Jameis Winston???

  342. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Now hang onto the freaking football…no penalties and get six…

    JW is just cementing his rookie of the year award. And to think some goober up there was touting MM.

    JW has shown me more competitve desire than any QB since Brady. He plays to win!!!!

  343. DallasBuc Says:

    The announcer talking about a fumble that never happened. Just pure hallucinations. Worst announcers on Fox?

  344. tnew Says:

    All you haters…. If you don’t represent right now… you are now exposed

  345. Tiger team Says:

    Winston is just a baller

  346. cmurda Says:

    Yeah Lurker I know. It wasn’t even close to a fumble. That’s the heart of a Champion by JW. That’s the stuff wins are made of. Notice the offense all of a sudden with dynamic energy with Dougie back in.

  347. Soggy Says:

    awesome 1st down JW never gave up on that run NICE

  348. DI Says:


  349. lurker Says:

    jameis christ to mariota

    “anything you can do i can do better.”

  350. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Hey we agree. Stockton used to be one of the best…sadly I think he’s in his 70’s now and he’s lost his game. Time to retire. Sad to see a once talented announer embarrrasing himself.

  351. WalkdaPlank Says:

    JUST DON’T TURN IT OVER! FG or preferably a TD!

  352. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Need a td here. I believe in jameis christ

  353. Maxx Says:

    Jamies=huge heart

  354. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    #3 is already assured of being on everybody’s highlight reel…now let’s see a play to close the show!

  355. Soggy Says:

    play for the TD not the FG

  356. lurker Says:

    gotta love winston’s fight, desire, heart, soul…

  357. Miguel Grande Says:

    Play to win Lovie!!!

  358. Maxx Says:

    Man, how about ALL the Jameis haters prior to the draft. No one listened to Jimbo.

  359. DallasBuc Says:

    Unbelievable pass!!!

  360. yoooo Says:


  361. lurker Says:


    does it stand?

  362. ATrain Says:

    Evans keeps his job

  363. Soggy Says:

    YAAAAAAA.. Way To Do It..

  364. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Hey timeout and let me be the blog assswhole here. I’m no longer a Christian but there are plenty here on this blog.

    Yes Fameis is the real day and it’s appropriate to call him A savior but not THE Savior. We don’t need to disrepect our Christian friend’s on their day of worship.

    I get the desire…the kid is just freaking SPECIAL…but tonight’s highlight reel will be boasting enough.

  365. lurker Says:

    should be a touchdown!

  366. Miguel Grande Says:

    Beautiful catch!!!!!

  367. cmurda Says:

    That’s a TD and that’s a great throw by JW and great catch by M.E. It would be lovely for that to be the gamewinner. The game is now on the defense. There is no excuses. the offense did their job and now its time for the defense to win us this game.

  368. lurker Says:

    freakin evans… never know if he will make the grab.

  369. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Way too much time with this defense. They might easily get the TD.

  370. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Finally!! Evans loses the stoned hands when it counts!!

  371. tnew Says:

    Winston sucks when he rolls out, right CW Wes

  372. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    We agree since we got the extra point. We don’t need to be a championship defense to hold this lead…but we do need to be at least a playoff caliber defense and so we’re going to get what we deserve here. Fingers crossed.

  373. lurker Says:

    look at that line lovin on jameis christ…witnessing a resurrection!

    can i get a witness, can i get a witness

    Big play Lavonte David!!!!!

  383. cmurda Says:

    YESSSSSSS LAVONTE baby. How freaking beautiful that the D comes up huge when we needed it and JW’s run will be seen for the whole week. I can’t wait to rewind this gae and watch our last drive 15 times in a row. Yeah baby.

  384. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Nice play Lavonte. Still in it even if it’s a below average team. Odd season to say the least.

  385. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    WOW….JUST WOW! This is awesome. Hard to not believe we are watching a legend in the making…and he’s OUR QB!!!

  386. lurker Says:
