The Bucs Will Get Carolina’s Best

December 27th, 2015

cam newtonThe Bucs will get one heck of an honest test next Sunday. The Panthers still haven’t locked up the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

With the Panthers (14-1) losing to Atlanta and the Cardinals (13-2) blowing out Green Bay today, Carolina must beat the Bucs on Sunday to assure their top-dog status in the conference. Therefore, the Bucs head to Carolina to face a hungry, great team before a revved up and hostile crowd.

Joe is so pleased that the Bucs will get to test themselves and won’t play a team that’s mailed it in. Lovie Smith and Jason Licht need every second of true evaluation they can get their hands on.

In the locker room after today’s game, Joe heard several Bucs defensive linemen chatting about how disappointed they were that Carolina lost. They wanted to knock off Carolina from the undefeated ranks. Well, guys, you’re still going to take an important game from the Stinkin’ Panthers.

    They shouldn’t care about Carolina losing. Would rather them stepping up and winning the last 3. Kwon must be way more important than I thought.

  2. I know why Says:

    Ha. Joe. Good one on Bucs wanting to knock down Carolina when they’ve lost 9 games already this season.

  3. The Buc Realist Says:

    What does it matter! Joe and the sheep have handed love a pass for next year!! After next weeks game they will pop champagne because lovie got to 6 wins!!!!!!

  4. AceofAerospace Says:

    Carolina will be resting starters by half time. Bucs are planning their offseason activities.

  5. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    They’ll start Derek Anderson as a troll, and he’ll go 29-37 for 290 yards and 4 TDs.

  6. Tampa Tony Says:

    I’m only watching the offense from now on, as its a forgone conclusion this d sucks

  7. This Guy Right Here Says:

    If Lovie was smart, he’d give Glennon and his back-ups some serious playing time… So that when his team doesnt show up for him again, he could say this game was only about evaluating his teams talent.

    Does God Hate Bucs Fans??? Youre daaaamn right he does! Lovies back in 2016! WE’RE FCKED! GO BUCS!!!

    Carolina 55
    Bucs 3

    The players should be disappointed for their performance in the last quarter of the season. Instead of improving, now we’re taking step backs. It’s very frustrating, especially when you watch teams such as the Redskins, the Raiders or the Dolphins making progress towards becoming better teams. I’m not gonna go back to my Lovie bashing ways, but next year we better get in the playoff, or he can go coach elsewhere as far as I’m concerned.

    Defensive lineman were disappointed? Oh the irony! They can’t get near the likes of Matt Hasselhoff or JustinCase Keenum. That’s rich fellas! Good comedy relief after another clunker.

  11. Howard Cosell Says:

    Humiliated by Cam in the last game of the season. Perfect.

  12. Buccfan37 Says:

    Arizona is looking like top dog in the league. I change my pick from Carolina winning the Super Bowl to the Cardinals taking the trophy home.

  13. Mike Johnsom Says:

    Heyyyy..who knows? THIs is our Bucs superbowl. you never know..Jameis might have the game of his young career. It can happen you know. Just a little Defense and our O scoring in bunches. Could be a good game.

  14. Warrenfb12 Says:

    A test? Why do they need a test? Bucs haven’t beat bad teams three weeks in a row…they have already failed their test. Season over 6-10, top 10 pick

  15. Warrenfb12 Says:

    Lovie is dog poo:

    LOL at your post. So true.

  16. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Side Note, watched Naked Gun a few days ago, and I swear OJ looks like Cam Newton Sr… And oh yeah,

    Go Fcuk Yourself Lovie.

  17. Dean Says:

    Let’s look at this honestly. The Defense can’t stop the run or the pass. Other than that….sorry, they suck.
    ‘Ol duggy fumbles 3 times. He doesn’t deserve the rushing title. He cost us the game.
    Jameis has looked like crap the past 3 games. He is back-peddling.

    The good news is we’re set to draft 12th. A real nice loss to the Panthers could lower out draft position even more. We don’t need a win, we need more talent on this sorry-assed team. For the second year in a row, let’s lose one for the draft.

  18. This Guy Right Here Says:

    I truly believe the Glazers will shock Buc Nation, and fire Lovie… I think theyve seen the mistake that they made in hiring him, and I have the confidence that they wont let pride get in the way of reality..

    The way he hasnt put together a solid defense after 2 years.
    The way his team collapsed on him the last 4 games of the season while in the playoff hunt.
    The way he’s too insecure to ever take responsibility after a loss.
    ….And just the fact that he isnt even a ‘Has Been’ coach… he’s a ‘Never Was’.

    I hope we kick some ass! Go Bucs!

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    Newton will be resting on the bench by 1/2 time.

    “I’m only watching the offense from now on, as its a forgone conclusion this d sucks.”

    lol I started doing that midseason and posted this very same thing on JBF.

    I got a kick out of someone else saying it.

  22. BrianBucs Says:

    Maybe next week for the very first time Lovie can figure out how to cover Greg Olsen

  23. BrianBucs Says:

    Or maybe not, lol

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    Ya know what makes us sooooooooooo pissed off over Lovie, besides the several reasons other people have listed?

    Bucs fans KNOW defense and Lovie is supposed to KNOW defense too, yet here we are. Now comes the fan that comes on here to tell me that Lovie knows a 1000 more times about defense than I do.

    To them I say…. prove it.

  25. Supersam Says:

    The panthers could call up Kerry Collins off his couch and he would come and shred this pathetic Lovie Smith team, hey guys how bout Instead of worrying about “beating” the Panthers, how bout beating the saints, Rams, Bears, redskins, Titans, just to name a few.

  26. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    A coach who knows defense is not 0-2 against Jay Cutler. Lovie has rode that one Super Bowl run to a rather undeserved reputation as a great coach. Without Marinelli or Rivera as DC he couldn’t find the playoffs.

  27. This Guy Right Here Says:

    “Without Marinelli or Rivera as DC he couldn’t find the playoffs.”

    I’m starting to think that it was more Rivera’s D, that gave the ’06 Bears a shot at the SB, rather than Lovie & Rex Grossman…

    Just look at Rivera now…

  28. Howard Cosell Says:

    Raheem, Schiano and Smith: Examples 1A, 1B and 1C of the Glazers not doing their due diligence with respect to important hires.

  29. godzilla13 Says:

    When Ted Gin Jr went out the Panthers looked vulnerable. He opens it up for Greg Olsen with the deep threat. Still zero chance the Bucs will pull off a win. After losing we will move up to the 9th pick in the draft and can possibly move to number 6, if the Jaguars, Ravens and Dolphins win. Maybe, just maybe Robert Nkemdiche (DL Ole Miss) or Vernon Hargreaves III (CB Florida) will fall into our laps?
