Rams 31, Buccaneers 23

December 17th, 2015

How bout that Case Keenum! He finished tonight 14-for-17 for 234 yards and two touchdowns against the Bucs.

It was humiliation before the nation.

The Bucs, your beloved Dropaneers, embodied everything they don’t want to be — sloppy, soft and stupid.

Joe will throw “flat” into the mix, too, just like they were inexplicably flat Sunday against New Orleans.

Aginst the lowly Rams, the Bucs defense couldn’t or wouldn’t tackle and allowed explosive plays. Special teams coverage was porous, and the offensive line got pushed around.

And then there were the drops — plus the balls caught but then tossed foolishly in the air by both Donteea Dye and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

But worst of all, the Bucs made Rams garbage-vagrant quarterback Case Keenum look like a Hall of Famer. Keenum finished 14-for-17 for 234 yards and two touchdowns.

Sure, this was a tough spot for the Bucs to hit the road for a Thursday night game, but they were not competitive early in this game and dominated physically at times. And there’s just no excuse for that.

The Bucs have now lost three out of four, just when Lovie Smith said they were a good football team and relevant again in the NFL.

Paper or plastic?

    The lack of discipline on this team is astounding and that all comes down to coaching.

  2. Ray Rice Says:

    They are garbage!!!

  3. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Mustard is yummy. Ketchup is good too, but with rotten tomatoes it tastes like ass. Tonight we were ketchup with rotten tomatoes. Lovie sucks, the defenders will spew their crap but we went from 1 game out of the playoffs to behind the Eagles, who we beat 45-17 a month ago. Team has given up at a time it was in contention. That is 1000% on the coach.

  4. Captain Crunch Says:

    Lovie just like Schiano only wanted “his guys” and wanted the players to play “his system” remember? Every QB has a field day with this defense, this is what happens when your coach is stubborn and doesn’t know how to adjust to his players. Lovies “system” is clearly not working but he refuses to adjust to help out his players and Lovie has showed time and time again that he’s a bad evaluator at talent so either take personal decisions away from him or fire him. I say promote the Koetter to HC in the off-season and bring in a real DC .

  5. BucsinDenver Says:

    Lack of talent! Nuff said!

  6. Patrick in VA Says:

    Tonight was the first time that I’ve really started to think that a big part of our problem is that we have legitimately dumb players on our team. Like, learning disability kind of dumb.

  7. Couch Fan Says:

    Where are the fools that tried to tell us that this is an average defense? LoL. This defense is terrible. Absolutely terrible and it starts with the coaching.

  8. NJBucsFan Says:

    Poor coach Nuff said

  9. Bucsfaninchina Says:

    Ill take plastic. Just end the misery.

  10. Ray Rice Says:

    Lovie needs to go!!! In the playoff hunt and they come out flat two weeks in a row. Unprepared. Undisciplined. Etc… Where was the same offense at the beginning of the game. Lovie holds Jameis back first half. Finally lets him loose and they move the ball down field. You do the math. FUK you Lovie!!!

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    The only thing good is Jameis Winston. There’s no fight in anyone else imo.

  12. MadMax Says:

    LOL!!!! All of the “LOVIE SUCKS!” chants…..hahahaha, yup!

  13. Lord Cornelius Says:

    The D has been average for the most part but that 1st half was like the Titans game and pathetic.

    I’m sure Realist had his pants down furiously masturbating with happiness the whole time

  14. Buccfan37 Says:

    Plastic since it’s not natural.

  15. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Evans had a pretty good game.

  16. Lefty Says:

    Lovie has not done much for this team. While talent is questionable, nobody to blame but him. Don’t know who I’d prefer to take over the reigns, but with the Love Man, ain’t much gonna change.

  17. MadMax Says:

    at least thats what it sounded like to me….in the aftershow.

    I thought some buc fans who made it to the game were yelling that.

  18. DallasBuc Says:

    The only thing tonight proves is that Winston is a winner and the HC on down can go with haste.
    Mach schnell!!!

  19. tb Says:

    Lovie gotta go and his sorry players

  20. Lord Cornelius Says:

    And Winston was off pretty bad early in the game. Nice to see him finish strong

  21. tval Says:

    You fools wldve doubted lovie cldve led this team to contending, this season, without question. Now you cry going possibly .500? Sports fans are remedial. Ironically, in a tough loss they saw what jameis could really do, and he’ll undoubtedly learn from his mistake like he always does. Future is bright for lovie & jameis in tampa. You need a rush to create confusion to help his defensive scheme. Thats lacking bigtime

  22. BucsinDenver Says:

    McCoy, David, and Alexander can stay everyone else must go! Dear Kwon, stop drinking that energy drink!

  23. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    You are right Buc1987. I hope he goes to Licht or the Glazers and demands a new coach. Lovie has to be the biggest loser he’s ever been around.

    Also lol @ Patrick in VA

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    Doug Martin leading the NFL in rushing yards….for now. So there’s fight in Dougie.

  25. DallasBuc Says:

    Lousy Keenum ripped Loviehole like only ATL can do circa 2014

  26. rfdes Says:

    This defense is pure ‘fecal matter’.
    I guess Lovie will roll the dice again next year and pick his secondary by drawing names from a hat as this so called defensive ‘genius’ cannot evaluate defensive talent.

    Absolutely sickening to watch. We’ve definitely regressed. So much excitement just a few weeks ago, now zero confidence. You can also see it in Lovie’s eyes when the TV camera does their closeup shots of his sphincter mouth pointed up into the air.

  27. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Did Will Gholston win the award for most consecutive games with a personal foul?

    We simply started very slow on both sides of the ball and made too many mistakes throughout the game.

    All of you hoping for a better draft position just got your wish….

    Mike Evans had a fantastic game…..Martin & Sims ran well…..Jameis picked up steam…..two turnovers and special teams hurt us.

  28. Tampa Tony Says:

    Sims out gained Gurley, you got beat by Case F’ing Keenum!!!!!!!!

    Penalties and a awful defense killed any hope for this season

  29. Rojas Says:

    Dye is garbage.

  30. LargoBuc Says:

    How embarassing. These guys are in a playoff race and they just play with no heart! This def

  31. Juststunned Says:

    We need defense backs or we need to but banks and verner back in to start. I get that lovie hates them for whatever reason. But anyone is better that Abdullah-hdjgfkdu whatever his name is.

  32. mike10 Says:

    Everyone ripped Joe for his article of the players going deaf to Lovie.

    Not 2 days later they came out flat again. This is the exact same team we’ve been watching for the past 5 years. Lovie needs to go.

  33. Brent bull/buc Says:

    You guys saying if Bucs get to 7-9 you wouldn’t have signed up for that?

    My take:
    1) jw looks legit
    2) o-line improved
    3) decent pieces on offense: Evans asj Martin Simms
    If licht can add 3 good starters on defense thru draft and fa plus another receiver were gonna be decent for awhile. I gotta believe lovie can coach defense if we get him some talent. Our d is average cause we have average talent

  34. BenjaminBuc Says:

    Poor Doug Martin, would probably be looking at a 1700-1800 yard season if we weren’t always behind in the second half.

    The lack of discipline and fundamentals is absolutely absurd. The players clearly don’t feel any accountability towards their coach.

  35. BucsinDenver Says:

    Pay attention Lovie haters. The head coach doesn’t make stupid penalties, he doesn’t miss tackles, and he is never out of position on the field. All I see is a lack of talent.

  36. Buccfan37 Says:

    Saran Wrap because you can see right through it.

  37. MadMax Says:

    Hey 87, gotta give give some love to Humphries….lots of fight in that little guy.

  38. Couch Fan Says:

    You let the Rams put up 31 points on you. That is absolutely awful. Inexcusable, almost as bad as the Titans game. The Lovie Crap Show continues. Jameis will have to have a monster off season to have any hope of over coming Imcompetent Lovie next season.

  39. DallasBuc Says:

    Yes -87 Martin is clearly essential and will likely be allowed to walk because you can’t have too many good football players on the same team in Tampa. No, really. I think it is some how not allowed for a sustained period of time.

  40. scott Says:

    Run him the hell out of here. We are undisciplined as ever.

  41. Buc1987 Says:

    TBBF…by the end of the 4th I was already thinking of draft position. Just lose out if they have to, but make it look pretty.

    No seriously I’ll take the wins to finish 8-8 or 7-9.

  42. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Most humiliating was how the Rams just out-muscled everyone. They were viscous. We were weak.

  43. BucFan20 Says:

    And who picks the talent and puts them on the field????

  44. Steve from oregon Says:

    Lovie and his defensive staff need to go, keep Dirk.

  45. NJBucsFan Says:


    Lovie picks the players and ran talent out of town. Lovie is the problem. Coaches coach the talent they have unless they are Lovie or Chip Kelly.

    Pay attention Lovie haters. The head coach doesn’t make stupid penalties, he doesn’t miss tackles, and he is never out of position on the field. All I see is a lack of talent.

    He also doesn’t hold them accountable. If he did Brate would start and ASJ and Gholston would rarely play or be cut. Two mental midgets and idiots, but there they are, continuing to play.

  47. tb Says:

    There are only 7goid players on the team!

  48. Tim Says:

    Ketchup needs to take the short bus to practice.

  49. Vincente Says:

    Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. Lovie is way to soft. Good night.

  50. mike10 Says:

    Then what is he responsible for Denver?

  51. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I came to a realization tonight – there isn’t one solution to get this fixed. There’s a number of things wrong with this team, and fixing one or two isn’t going to hide the others. Firing Lovie isn’t going to make us a winner. Then again, getting new players isn’t going to make us a winner either. We aren’t good enough to overcome the injuries we have had. Losing Vincent Jackson is an absolute back breaker. And to think there is consideration he won’t be back next year! Talk about the stupidest idea ever. We lack discipline. We have an amazing ability to do something good, yet on the same play do something twice as bad (we make a spectacular catch, then flip the ball in the air when you could have walked into the end zone). We have the ball on the one inch line, then we let our emotions get the best of us and throw the ball into the back of the end zone.

    I absolutely love Winston, but he was a bit out of control tonight. But I 100% understand. I think he came to the realization of what it feels like to be a Bucs fan as of late. You could tell his frustration boiled over, but as a QB, it’s probably not the best thing to do. That kid will not accept losing, and I admire his fight. We are in good hands.

  52. Soggy Says:

    They are just trying to save jasons wardrobe from the chlorine….

  53. ThunderSack Says:

    That game was a letdown.

    I’m beginning to think they should get ASJ out of there. Injuries, drops, and a bunch of stupid plays in his career. The dude just does not seem to get it.

    Mike Evans needs some serious help with VJax out. If they take that dude and isolate him the team is screwed for the rest of the season.

    Our defense just keeps collapsing at bad times. I don’t have the eye to see what assignments are being blown and by whom. Maybe an analysis by an ex player would shed some light on the last two games.

    The only great part was our running game. At least that is consistent!

  54. Ocala Says:

    Jameis is amazing but the team is filled with idiots and the coaching on defense is as bad as it gets in the NFL.
    Foolish penalties, throwing the ball after you catching it and the most atrocious secondary in the NFL with a head coach that is a supposed defensive back guru.

    I feel bad for Jameis.
    He’s a winner but there are mostly losers on the team and the coaching staff.

  55. Buc1987 Says:

    Jameis was beat up like Rocky Balboa in Rocky 4. He’s going to need to sit in the tub after this game.

    This team has no fight.

    Jameis will MAKE them fight. ( Yelling at the special teams players for allowing that K.O. return to the 3)

    Passive Lovie Smith or not.

    Jameis is taking some coach to the Super Bowl someday. I don’t know if it’s going to be Lovie Smith or not at this point.

  56. DallasBuc Says:

    If you were Martin would you want to sign with a HC that has no earthly idea how to beat a 5-8 Rams team defensively much less how to handle a franchise QB?

  57. Couch Fan Says:

    Coaches coach the talent they have unless they are Lovie or Chip Kelly.
    Common sense will be ignored by the blinded Lovie lovers.

  58. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo likes coach Lovie because Pablo thinks coach Lovie is good for Hamus & Pablo loves Hamus. Pablo is sad that Hason Light won’t be jumping in the pool.”

  59. Buccfan37 Says:

    Wear your Lovie like heaven.

  60. BucsinDenver Says:

    NJ, what talent did he have? The worst secondary in NFL history before he came. EJ Biggers? Sabby Piscatelli? 6 other no name scrubs? All he could do is stop the bleeding!

  61. LovieBall Says:

    Here is footage of McCoy getting fired up before the game: https://twitter.com/BucWild007/status/677652690734850048

  62. mike10 Says:

    Martin was one of the few bright spots tonight, and Lovie is going to do everything he can to run him out of town. I’d rather have Martin over McCoy in a heartbeat!

    I’m just worried that Lovie’s lame-duck year in ’16 is going to leave us in a big hole.

  63. Couch Fan Says:

    This game had nothing to do with talent!!! Our defense went against an offense that lacks talent to and they dominated us. Stop with the talent excuse. Just stop.

  64. NJBucsFan Says:

    Denver…put the Bing down. Neither of those players were on the team lovie’s first year. Let’s try Revis and Barron.

  65. NJBucsFan Says:

    Denver…put the Bong down. Neither of those players were on the team lovie’s first year. Let’s try Revis and Barron.

    Or let’s try Revis and Barron.

  68. Brent bull/buc Says:

    @hawaain, you telling me if we add 3 good starters on defense next year this isn’t a decent team? Lovie has proven he can coach defense but our db’s are average and we have no de other than jack.. He’s a flawed coach but our immature fans are under rating him. How does the great Falcons coach look now. Or the great bill o brown. Lovie decent not great.

  69. BucsinDenver Says:

    Lovie is dog poo, get a grip bro! Accountability is easy when you have depth. Case in point, Doug fumbles then Doug sits. No depth at those positions to support your claim. Name a better coach for this team than Lovie? Who’s available?

  70. Buc1987 Says:

    Denver…ummm Mickey Mouse.

  71. LargoSamIM Says:

    JAMEIS is, at this point, a MEDIOCRE QB ! Joe(s) laud him for being the youngest QB to do various things……well, that’s crap ! He came out very young……Yes, I have hopes for him (and the BUCS)… we will see next year… for NOW he is a MEDIOCRE QB ! Next year will tell if he is more …. and I am hoping he will be ! There is a lot to admire about the young man…. but……

  72. BrianBucs Says:

    I love my Bucs, but they stink. Maybe now all of this crazy playoff nonsense will stop

  73. Ray Rice Says:

    Casey MUTHAFUKIN Keenum???? WTF!!!!

  74. ndog Says:

    Everyone on here blames Lovie but where was McCoy? Nothing all mount while their d tackle was destroying or entire line. He has 20 sacks in one year and 14 games McCoy won’t have 20 sacks in 4 years! He is THE problem on defense cause nothing works without a pass rush!

  75. NJBucsFan Says:

    Dirk, Josh McDaniels, Ken Wisenhunt, Todd Haley, Greg Olsen, Greg Schiano, Hue Jackson. Hell. I’d take Tebow as a coach over Lovie

  76. Ray Rice Says:


    So much for your distractions prediction!!

  77. rayjay1122 Says:

    Bears and Panthers next. No way in hell we finish above 6-10. Hey Joe, is final record and division record correct enough for a lunch invite because I am beginning to think last place in the NFC South is more likely than 3rd?,

  78. NJBucsFan Says:

    Apparently “bro” and “get a grip” haven’t gone out of style in Denver

  79. BrianBucs Says:

    Sorry to say that I don’t ever see the Bucs being any better than just average under Lovie Smith

  80. loggedontosay Says:

    What is your excuse for Gerald McCoy in the loss to the Rams?

  81. softastissueMcCoy93 Says:


  82. Couch Fan Says:

    Can we get some Fire Lovie bill boards now? Just sayin… Tired of seeing this crap show.

  83. ndog Says:

    Hey Lovie haters you say he picked bad players, but didn’t he also pick Jameis, Ali, Smith, Evans, Kwon Simms via the draft? But I guess you will just ignore that!

  84. BucsinDenver Says:

    No shortage of clowns in NJ. Personal attacks…

  85. NJBucsFan Says:

    Ndog – those picks were JL not Lovie.

    Lovie picks the Michael Johnsons, Mike Jenkins, Chris Contes, and Andre Smiths.

  86. BrianBucs Says:

    At least our next draft pick just keeps getting better

  87. ndog Says:

    I just can’t deal with you MORONS on this site! You would rather have Dirk, Greg Olsen or Josh McDaniels? !?!?!?!

  88. NJBucsFan Says:

    Get a grip bro. Didn’t make any personal attacks. You’re just being defensive.

  89. Buccfan37 Says:

    Somebody said a 6-10 finish would net the Bucs the 14th pick in the draft. It seems like that poor of a record should get a top ten draft spot. A lot of crappy teams in the league.

  90. BucsinDenver Says:

    Firing the coach at this time is not a good idea. Rebuilding a team after firing a coach… Another 5 years. Give the guy a chance to get the right talent for the scheme in place. Barron didn’t fit, Revis didn’t fit it into our cap.

  91. rayjay1122 Says:

    I think Winston has far exceeded expectations. He is the leader of this team, is very smart and had been a fave of the franchise to he proud of. I hope he can improve on his accuracy but some of that is due to not having much time in the pocket. Defense needs a complete overhaul. We need a speed WR with reliable hands. Need to keep Doug Martin. I am not going to waste my time pining for the Bucs to fire Lovie because they are not going to this year. 6-10 this year 8-8 next year then the year after that I think we win the division and make some noise in the playoffs.

  92. loggedontosay Says:

    Right on! I will add to your post by stating that the defense likes leadership. The Bucs could possibly have won the last two games had Kwon Alexander not been suspended. I do not know that I believe the energy drink story, but I was not there and I have no way of knowing. I do believe; however that it if Kwon Alexander was on the field the Bucs would have the leadership they need on defense.

  93. ndog Says:

    Oh no you can’t have it both ways both ways if you say he picks the players he picks ask of them. Nice try though weak sauce, just more you are clueless.

  94. NJBucsFan Says:

    And yes all of those coaching candidates are better than Lovie at this point. He’s simple-minded and the game has passed him by. The team has a chance to make a playoff push and they come out flat. That’s a reflection of leadership and the coach is the leader of leaders. Lovie is nothing more than a d coordinator.

  95. Couch Fan Says:

    I just can’t deal with you MORONS on this site! You would rather have Dirk, Greg Olsen or Josh McDaniels? !?!?!?!

    Right because it would be tremendously difficult to find a coach that could have his team routinely unprepared, undisciplined and out coached on a weekly basis. Not to mentioned 8 wins in 2 years. Cant get any better than this well coached team.

  96. BucsinDenver Says:


  97. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Why after every loss is McCoy the one everybody goes after? He shouldn’t even be playing with all his injuries. I’m sure most of you don’t know, and even if you did don’t care, but a defensive lineman can’t play without their hands. JJ Watt was miserable last week with his broken hand, and even I’ll admit he’s a better player than McCoy. Then you add onto that his shoulder injury, which I guarantee you is much worse than anyone knows. He’s playing because he wants to help the team, but even in his ineffectiveness, he’s not the reason we lost. Gurley averaged like 2 yards per carry! Keenum threw the ball only 17 times! Again, he wasn’t good, but it’s not like his errors cost us the game! We lost because of a slew of stupid, unforced mistakes, period.

  98. mike10 Says:

    lol Ray Rice, thanks for reiterating the name I kept yelling like a crazed maniac all game.

  99. ndog Says:

    Nothing personal guys I just can’t take people just saying things that just aren’t true.

  100. NJBucsFan Says:

    ndog – lets get a clue here. Lovie tells JL who he wants to sign as FA’s. JL does all the scouting and college talent evaluation. This is the way it works for majority of the team because the coaches are coaching during the football season. I know it doesn’t seem that way based on our team’s performance, but Lovie is busy trying to coach.

  101. DallasBuc Says:

    Here’s what we know:
    -Mike Clayton Evans has a real aversion to catching footballs and has to try extremely hard to do his many millionish-dollar job
    -We really do not see any difference in defensive play (wonder) since Schiano
    -KissKeenum is for the first time in his life, professionally, a real winner (hat tip Lovie)
    -McCoy is overrated and overvalued
    -Doug Martin is hugely underrated and insulted in the second half of nearly every game
    -Lovie loyalists insist he knows which bathroom is appropriate to enter in public
    -Being a Bucs fan is a beating

  102. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    See Jeff Fisher isn’t a great coach either but hes maximized what Mark Barron can be as an NFL player. Lovie just cannot coach guys up well at all.

  103. ndog Says:

    So playing without our two top middle linebackers, our #2 wide out, our #3 wide out and without our top two nose tackles has nothing to do with it. And oh yeah or best d lineman is useless. But let’s all blame the coach.

  104. NJBucsFan Says:

    The Patriots have used a different o-line combo every game, lost 2 starting RBs, an all-pro WR, 2 probowler CBs to Free agency, and changes their game plan weekly. Their coach finds a way to win.

  105. Supersam Says:

    Hard to blame Winston, the poor kid had to throw the ball 40 freaking times!!! God I’m so sick of Lovie Smith Gerald McCoy and this weak ass defense!!!

  106. CAN'T FIX IT Says:


  107. tickrdr Says:

    It matters who your opponents are! Remember we were lucky enough to have a schedule which included the NFC East and the AFC South, as well as two games each vs. the NFC South. Except for one game against the Panthers, we are 6-7 against the remainder of that schedule, where every single opponent is playing under 0.500 ball for this year. The best record of any other opponent is 6-7. Our opponents suck, and we can’t even win even half our games against them. Hell even Schiano and Glennon went 4-4 against the non-playoff teams on their schedule in 2013. But Lovie and Koetter and Evans and VJax and ASJ and two years of Offensive draft picks, and a Top 5 rushing offense and the Savior are 6-7 against the weakest schedule in the league. The aggregate record of all our opponents not named Caroline is 70-100!

    Another excellent post in defense of Lovie. Because we all know the Bucs are the only team that has to deal with injuries and it looks extra bad when you go against such great offensive juggernauts like the Rams. Right? And we are so well coached also.

  109. Brent bull/buc Says:

    Blah blah. Lovie is flawed but he’s decent. Where are all these great coaching prospects? Bill o brien, mike McCoy, Atlanta guy, Rex Ryan. Everybody singing their praises before this year and their all having mediocre years. At least lovie has a track record. Who are we going to hire that’s so good with a better track record. I’d give lovie some talent on defense before I fire him. He’s had some good defenses before. Our de and db seem like bs save jack. Give lovie some def talent before you fire him and give Koetter a raise.

  110. NJBucsFan Says:

    Couldn’t agree more with Couch

  111. NJBucsFan Says:

    Lovie’s Tampa track record is 8-21.

    He picked the talent on the defense last year and won 2 games. He’s calling the plays on defense this year.

    Not sure what else you need to see

  112. BrianBucs Says:

    Maybe it’s time for Joe to run his Lovie Confidence Poll again

  113. Colorado_Bucs_Fan Says:

    All the bucs fan fighting man this is a sad day maybe lovie needs to be gone but 3 years should be the minimum for a head coach to be on a team. yes we embarrassed all of the bucs fan 2nite but maybe next year it will be different if not, another coach, plane and simple this is how its been since I became a bucs fan.

    Yo, honestly… Most of y’all only comment on losses… Stay home turn your tv off and take that old a$$ bucs jersey off its a bew generation… We are an ok team and on the rise… Truthfully the worst thing about the bucs is the Tampa fan base!!! Boom there I said it, you guys
    Don’t pull for these boys, the stadium noise and home record prove this… How about this? After the NFL relocates the LA teams we need a new team in the NYC area…. Hello Brooklyn Buccaneers. You haters and that terrible a$$ stadium can take a hike, we got a brand sparking new facility waiting for a NYC football team we can rally behind… Take your funky stadium, your fair weather fans and enjoy sports irrelevance… Haters

    Come out flat, defense gives up big plays, dropped passes, stupid ass penalties and another national TV loss. It’s literally the Bucs life. It’s seems that no amount of deck shuffling ever changes anthing. This defense has been below average forever!

    Hey Lovie haters you say he picked bad players, but didn’t he also pick Jameis, Ali, Smith, Evans, Kwon Simms via the draft? But I guess you will just ignore that!

    Simms is crap, you can find any UDFA to do as good or better
    Smith is mediocre so far
    Evans is a miss. Sorry. Beckham looks like a HOFer, Evans looks like a slighty better Michael Clayton

    Schiano also drafted two of our 5 best players currently on the roster. Should we bring him back then? Yeah no.

    If all you need is great players then every coach would have a winning record. Good coache’s get the most out of what has been dealt to them. Lovie sucks. Period. The rest of you can blow me.

    At the beginning of the season, I said I thought the Bucs would improve a little and go somewhere between 4-12 and 6-10. I’m sticking with that….because I don’t think this team wins again this year. We have a few good young players, but we need much more talent and depth to be competitive for a playoff spot. I also have serious doubts about Lovie Smith. i think its time for a change….hire Koetter as HC, and let him keep calling the offensive plays, and bring in a good young Def. Coordinator to handle the defense. In free agency and the draft, focus on DE, OT, CB and WR. Re-sign VJax and Martin. If these things get done, next year will see the Bucs return to competitiveness and get back into the playoff hunt.

    the talent on defense sucks…no cb’s, de’s, 1lb, 1/2 safety….this team has no talent and no heart…aaron Donald bullied everyone on offense all game…we must draft all defense….GO BUCS!!!
