Red Zone = Stop Zone

December 18th, 2015

stopAfter last night’s kick-in-the-nuts loss to the rotten Rams, America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, bemoaned the fact the red zone offense of the Bucs didn’t get the job done.

Actually, the offense didn’t get the job done in the first half.

Not once did the Bucs reach the red zone in the first 30 minutes, unless your concept of the red zone is the 23-yard line.

It wasn’t until the first Bucs drive of the third quarter when Tampa Bay entered the red zone. Naturally, a delay of game penalty (on Jameis) and two incompletions forced a field goal.

The one time the Bucs reached the red zone in the fourth quarter they settled for a field goal. That was when Austin Seferian-Jenkins was flagged for delay of game at the goal line and the Bucs couldn’t overcome it.

    dumb penalties, poor play calling, inaccurate quarterback play, no defense,, and why do we take Doug Martin out of every game? Its horrible to watch and embarrassing to go to work today!

    Can we package ASJ and Gholston for a 3rd rounder from someone? It just isnt working here for them.

    The problem with the team is that losing has become the culture for a lot of these players- specifically on defense. I’m not going to call for heads like a lot of fans, but the simple fact remains that the players expected to make PLAYS on that side of the ball simply are not. Our defense is predicated on pressure before takeaways, when case Keenum has enough time to pass out hor d’oeuvres in the backfield he’s not going to make mistakes. I don’t care that he’s a nobody, any fourth year quarterback should be expected to perform the way he did last night with ample time to dissect the defense. Also, blame it on fake blitzes( what have you) but the middle of the field is so wide open Honey Boo Boo could play tight-end and be effective against us.

    Who did “get the job done” is the question that needs to be asked!!!! If lovie coaches next year can the Glazers request not to be on any primetime games!!!

    I really do not want to see this team thrashed again on primetime because Lovie folds like a lawn chair again!!!!!

    Movie smith has never won a Super Bowl. He should be fired. Poor defense and play calling all his responsibility. Fire Lovie Smith

    I really believe our offense next year will be adequate to win. However can’t endure another year of this defense, the only way I see being able to run a different defense is to get rid of Lovie and a majority of the defensive coaches.

    Keep rooting against your own team Realist. And let’s all be clear here you are not a Bucs fan.

    There is a lot to gripe about. Put on that showing and be ready to be raked over the coals.
